I need playtesters!

I'm working on something, and I'd like a bunch of people to test it for me.
CLICK HERE FOR GAME
I just need people to run around, shoot the guys, it's just one little room. And report to me any lag or 'sticky controls/keys'
I'm especially interested in seeing how this runs on slightly older machines. So if you have a super computer, it probably isn't going to help me much. But thanks :P
Means a lot to me, thanks! I'll likely be tweaking this over the next few days, so feel free to check back. Ignore all the stats and stuff on the screen, this is all placeholder art. I'm just trying to get the game engine running smooth.

CONTROLS---------
Arrows or WASD
Z or 1 on the keypad
X or 2 on keypad changes weapon

ALSO! The final episode of Hood is out!
Hood Episode 4!!

Thanks guys!

I need playtesters!

For the game jam we just randomly banded together on the thread and created this baby!

I'm pretty pleased with the results, everyone worked hard and considering there were only three of us and we started kinda late, I think things went real smooth.

There were a lot of cool entries, be sure to check them out!

Stuff That Will Never Be

I thought I'd share some projects I'd worked on that will likely never get finished.

The first is a goblin game I was making in Stencyl. It was inspired by Zelda 2, and like, Metroid. It was going pretty smooth, but a serious error in Stencyl corrupted the game, and all of my work was lost. This was the only compiled version that could be recovered, it is about 1/50th the final product. You can click on the scrolls at the top to change you active spell. The controls are wasd, and arrows, and keypad 1 and 2, and the letter keys z and x.

This next thing, just some really short animation tests I did (I can't animate) only spent about an hour on it, mostly dicking in flash 8.

This was a rogue-like rpg I was planning to make, but couldn't code well enough to make it run efficiently, in fact you might get some staggering if you're not on a newer machine as it. Heh.

This was a civ/settlers type game I wanted to make about goblins. Never really got around to it, this is just a mockup, kind of. The idea is you'd plan their village, and they'd work on their own. Like watching an ant farm grow.

This was going to be a rts/4x type of game in space. You'd design ships and manage planets and meet with alien races to negotiate or war with them. I couldn't code well enough to keep the project afloat. Story of my life. You can click on the ships and move them around, you can also see my tests for a ship builder.

This is just, jesus I don't even know. Some weird little building game I started and never finished, but alas, here it is.

Now this one, just... damn. This was Guild Dungeons 2. A lot of people ask about the second one, when it'll be coming out, etc. And I was very eager to work on it, but I hit a serious wall when making it. As the buildings in the city mode stack up, the frame rate degrades. And even on a medium strength machine it starts to sputter. I haven't figured out a fix for this yet, and until I do, the game is on hold. You can see some of what I had done here, you can click on the "Build Structures" tab on the left side to build some civilian structures. As you build more buildings, new options become available and you can see little people moving around the town. Once you get the city to a certain size you can even install some heating and cooling systems. Usually by this time though the frame rate of the game has dropped for most players.

I almost forgot Mane. Man, I really wanted to make this game, but big surprise, my code was not up to par. I'd like to revisit the idea some day. I was going to fan the fire of my love for Ghost in the Shell and Blade Runner on this one. It shows too I think, more than a little. But alas.

That's about it for now, there are a few other project I'm working on, but I don't want to show those as they actually show signs of being complete during my life time. Thanks for looking, I'd love to hear what you guys think and please, show these to your friends and stuff. These projects will never be finished as it, but I'd still love to have them seen by anyone interested. Stay cool everyone!

Hope you guys dig it, there is also a walkthrough on youtube, but my recording software kinda sucks so it isn't the clearest. I spent a lot of time on smaller details in this game, hope they help enrich it. Let me know what you guys think! Stay cool. ^_^ Thanks Newgrounds!

Hood 3

I'd like to let everyone know that I'm currently working hard on Hood 3, it is about 20% finished at this point. It will answer a LOT of questions from the previous two games, introduce some new characters, tie up some loose ends, and HOPEFULLY be an enjoyable experience for everyone that plays.

I don't have an ETA for it, however things are going really smoothly right now, if this continues I'd say it'll be done in a few weeks. If I hit any bumps though, meh. :\

Thanks for the support and questions, emails, pm's and so on. It means a lot to me that so many of you guys are looking forward to the stuff I create.

Relic will be out early March! I hope you guys like it, I worked SO hard on it, and I'm sure a few bugs will pop up, but I learned SO MUCH about programming while making it. And Tom and so many of my programmer friends have been a tremendous help. Thanks guys!
