      Hey, do you all remember that custom video game level I made a while back? The one with the Stargate?

      ...No? There were robots and everything, a kickass soundtrack featuring the tribal beats of Bear McCreary... a retail storefront or two bearing familiar logos...

      Well, the game I built it for is now available on Steam (PC only) at 50% off - $5.00 - for today until 10:00 am PDT tomorrow. It's an action-physics puzzle game where you play a robot charged with defending the moon from space pirates. Just about every object in the game that can move has full physics simulations built in - right down to the player character's arm. It's also the first game ever made and released for Unreal Engine 3, so, y'know, slice of history and whatnot.

      It also so happens that these are the guys who are currently employing me, so yeah. I won't see a cent from this sale, and depending on who owns the rights to this game, they might not either, but bigger sales numbers are never a bad thing.

      Tell you what: go buy this game, and I'll make my Terminal Tower level publicly available somehow. That way you can finally step through a Stargate in a game with decent gameplay! smiley0.gif

      One more thing: can you let me know in the comments if you bought the game? Thanks.

      Title: Rage Against the Machine

      Permalink: folksoftheforum.smackjeeves.com/comics/1275280/fotf-104-rage-against-the-machine/

      "LEEEEEEEEROOOOY JEEEEEEENKIIIIIIINS!!!!"

      ====

      Wow, it's been three months now.

      And it's been even longer since this comic, wherein Snipes goes on a spheal about wanting to make something of himself. Leading the Net into a new era is pretty noteworthy, right?

      A lot of people tell me that Snipes is unlikeable as a character, including the guy I based him on. I think that's because I haven't spent much time developing him. We don't know his wants, his desires, his weaknesses.

      At any rate, if I had to describe Snipes' flaws in one word, I'd have to say "pride". I'll leave it at that for now.

      As for the comic... well, I have a pretty intense internship at the moment. I do not think I can even pretend to devote any amount of time to this anymore. It's usually the art that slows me down, so if someone is willing to draw, send me an application (with link to a portfolio or something) by message.

    • Man of Many Hats

      5 years ago

      TheRecreator

      Comic-Con was a blast, I must say. I feel like I finally have a method of achieving direction in my life as a result of the panels I attended, but for now... I rest.

      Also, I must relate a story about hats.

      After asking Burnie and Frank O'Conner a question at the Halo Universe panel, I got a hold of two of RT's "-ism" posters and a tote bag for my bravery and dedication at the mic stand. Yeah, getting up to the mic fast enough for Q&A takes steadfast resolve, but that's not the subject of today's story.

      I took those posters for signing at the RT booth (also stalking Burnie along the way, with his permission - still don't know why he puts up with me). While there, I decided that I'd spent far too long annoying these guys at their convention booths without throwing them any profit for my time spent.

      I bought a hat.

      With this hat, I have managed to overcome a significant hurdle I seem to face in the world at large: prompting conversation. I managed to meet semi-frequent user TomBoy77 via my DeviantART pin on my backpack and the hat I wore, or some combination of the two. Not sure if that was a direct result of the hat in any way, but...

      On Sunday, while lounging in Nintendo's Pokémon bean bag lounge, some guys came up to me and asked if I "knew if Matt would be showing up today". I was able to respond "No, he had to do some last minute work on the episode 6... production." It occurred to me later that because I was wearing that hat, they assumed I was someone in the know.

      I related this story to Yomary later. She said it was like I was part of "the crew" now. smiley0.gif

      That's good, right? Crew's somewhere in the vicinity of stunt double, right? SailorTweek? smiley8.gifsmiley8.gifsmiley8.gif

      [/egotrip]

      All that aside, I've secured tickets for San Diego Comic-Con 2012. Hope to see more of you fine fellas there. smiley1.gif

      This is the product of a month of brainstorming, a year of faffing about, and a week of actual painting.

      IMG_0302.jpg

      The Epsilon antenna ball is approximately 3" in diameter, painted with a spray paint base coat and acrylic details. I used 6 screenshots from Reach and a Guilty Spark papercraft as my references.

      I'll post more details upon request, but for now I think I should get some sleep. Don't want to be driving on the I-5 to Comic-Con without my full wits about me.

      Oh, and one more thing.

      IMG_0288.jpg

      There's more of 'em. smiley0.gif

      I'm about to start a painting project. In order to allow me to paint with impunity, I've been searching for some newspaper to cover my work surfaces with.

      There is no newspaper in this house.

      What an age we live in. Now I feel old. smiley3.gif

      UPDATE: Turns out there were some ads in the mailbox today. Thank goodness for spam, I guess?

      Am I the only person who realizes that this bill won't make Rooster Teeth's machinima work illegal?

      Bungie and Microsoft gave Rooster Teeth a license to machinimate, people. Laws against derivative works don't apply in a punitive fashion when the original copyright holder gives the derivative author those rights. It's fairly obvious these guys are buddy-buddy, too - they're gonna make Red vs. Blue happen, regardless of S.978.

      That's all I've got for now. Gonna try to get Python compiled in Windows 7 (assistance would not go amiss).

      Well, and obviously I'm not speaking for everyone when I say this, but I tend to "type" (write) better than I speak, so inspiration won't come to me as easily. I will ask around but I am not familiar with Skype. Regardless of my issues, I will ask around like I mentioned. We probably won't do anything until after the seventeenth due to most of our group being in school.

      Would you want to participate in a writing brainstorm session? I kinda want to schedule one soon. One for writers to get together and write a story together or play games. Message me back. I'm debating on whether we should start a group or if we could do an AIM/MSN party.

      Yeah, it's okay, it kind of made me laugh inappropriately too. Then again, this is the only major bonding time between Boyfriend and his dad, and it's looking extremely likely that it's just not going to happen.

      I've got a violin. It's actually one of teh few instruments I would dearly love to play, and lucky for me, it's actually because I would love to play fiddle. This might be my lucky break! So I'm taking this as much for my own selfish reasons as for wanting to help my sis out.

      She said she has some books so I'll snag those from her, and she can teach me to tune my own instrument, so that'll be nice! smiley1.gif

      Also, the clues were a bit more elaborate than that. Most of them aren't up anymore because I replaced them with relevant information about the game. It basically led you to the old journal that I modified which was originally posted on October 8, 2008

      Hey Rec! Sorry for dipping out so quickly... I had to jet out to my parents for dinner and I wanted to get a few extra challenges finished before I left.

      I REALLY like your map! If you're looking for constructive criticism, all I might point out is perhaps having a third way to the top of the middle ramp. Perhaps another man-cannon on the other side or perhaps a teleporter on the very bottom or something.

      At first, I thought the vehicles were a little too much, but I like 'em now!
