I can't believe
that I forgot I'd seen this before. It's been 6 years already? Animation's great, but what really makes it is the relentless rhythm of the lyrics, not to mention the great chorus. I'll be singing this for days.
Don't sweat it
Mauled by a random dog just before you try and get your leg over?
Happens to me alll the time dude.
I heard it.
The monotony of hearing the same sound 10 times got to me, but there's really not much you could've done about that. Animations were great and really surprised to see how young quite a few are for the quality of work. Also, I probably spent more time playing with that guitar after watching it haha.
Definitely one of my favourite games on NG, rebuild 1 was fantastic, and a lovely surprise to see you working on the sequel.
One suggestion though, in the latter half of the game I started to lose track of who was doing what, who was good for what, who had what equipped etc. etc.
If you're going to either update this one or make yet another sequel, try and simplify the UI? The gameplay experience itself was spot on though.
Very much so, also to the below, you really want an endearing protagonist? You really want depth? This is the site who's mascots include a homicidal schoolboy, penis jokes in army gear and a zombie jesus. You review it constructively and positively in a windy amble and then vote low. In some vain attempt to seem like a discerning critic. Haha that is such a hipster thing to do. I come here for fun games, interesting music and lots of crude humour, this doesn't disappoint on any front for me.
I will say though that the platforming was god awful, humour was great, made me tittle a lot, but I spent much more time fighting the controls than actually getting the game complete. This took the playtime from a simple five minute enjoyable laugh to a frustrating ten minutes. I'd suggest you review that, increase the acceleration of the player, change over to wasd controls and offer better collision detection on the edges of platforms, then I'll really have nothing to complain about.
I'm also guessing this whole hipster fad culture grates on you sofake. Haha it was emo, then scene, now hipster. Meh, I've never been one for pop culture. Will say though, I do enjoy reading vice, they have a flair for captioning pictures ha.
Awesome, and interesting.
Writing that constitution was intense, I had just about everybody trained up as soldiers to fend the hordes off.
100 days it took, held off for about 10 because I reaaally wanted to see if capturing the evil graveyard was an alternate ending. Still haven't found out.
You pretty much nailed it with the gameplay, only grumble is that you can't train up scavengers. A sequel would be great, an easier time scrolling up and down long lists of survivors, and grading the level of infected in a building by a green/yellow/red glow. I had to keep clicking around the perimeter to see where to send out soldiers to keep numbers down, this gets tedious when you have 20+ neighbouring buildings.
...actually; I don't have one. Carry on Phoenix!
Very nice listening.
I'm not one to wax sentimental, but it is a beautiful piece. Has a very cinematic feel to it. My one gripe however is the lack of a full orchestral climax, maybe that was your conscious decision though. For me I could almost hear the cymbal clash and staccato string progressions in the latter half (around 2: 05), as the choir or piano went up an octave :P. Awesome job though, it really does sound as polished as I'd expect it to after months of work.
We were more going for that relaxed feeling. If you want orchestral climax just wait till you hear other works we do.
Did you intend the chromatic aberration or were just experiment with it? I've got a thing against replicating the flaws of optical devices on software that can produce a flawless image haha. At least there's no lens flare. Lovely job on the reptile skin though, may use it as reference for my own work.
Loved the lighting on the last one, love the composition in this, and the colour scheme. I think you're quite lucky that it matches up with the colours of the newgrounds page atm! Haha
Wonderful lighting on this piece, and the soft focus effect you gave to the rim light side and the back of the head. I think I'll start following you on tumblr! ^^
