Oh hey!

Soooo I'm heading off to college now! Going to get a Bachelor in Computer Science! More specifically, the Concentration of Game Software Development. Game Dev, woohoo!

"How's this going to affect your games and website?"
Quite frankly I won't have much time to keep up with the website, and Facebook and Twitter... and the skin moderation and Newgrounds and Kongregate and SoundCloud and game development and music production and... ahhHGG!! Basically I'll be relying on my friends and moderators to keep things running smoothly while I'm busy.
But don't get me wrong! I'm not going to be gone! I'll just be a bit busy, and probably on read-only mode (lol). So I'll keep in touch and still work as much as I can on games and music. I have 5 roommates, which is a huge change from my lonely quiet room in my parents' house, hahah!

Word Cloud!

Hi commenters!

I was inspired by BrenTheMan's Newgrounds word cloud, and made a word cloud out of all the comments on these site posts. In total, the comments take up 475 kB of data, which makes up 91000 words total! I'm excluding simple words like "and" and "I", and eliminating symbols like <>.

Bigger words mean they were used more times.

Here is what the word cloud looks like:

New Site Design!

Herro awesome friends!

Did you notice something different? ;) The entire website was switched over to a new design! In short, it includes more stylish buttons, more of a square look, and a completely redesigned home page.

Here's a before & after of the home page:

Picture of website before and after

I'm honestly really happy with the results! Please let me know if there's anything that you think I should change - it's always great to hear your opinions. lemon

Stay beautiful! *snaps* lolwut?

Dynamole Results & Mine Blocks 1.26.4!

Oh hey!

The Ludum Dare #29 results have been posted!
Out of about 1500 games, my submission, Dynamole, made 48th 50th place overall! It also made 16th place in 'fun'. :D

See below for a timelapse of the first couple days I developed it. Unfortunately, the stream glitched out on the last day so I lost the footage for it.

Play Dynamole

Also I must mention that Mine Blocks 1.26.4 will be coming out soon!! It's one of those smaller releases, with lots of bug fixes and a couple small additions. As of right now the update is in the testing phase. You should expect it to release within the next week!

On that note... you guys keep asking for multiplayer, mods, and texture packs. Noooo xD! None of these will be in Mine Blocks. Multiplayer and texture packs are going to be added to Mine Blocks 2 though (texture packs are already in Mine Blocks 2) :D Please remember that on April Fools, I'm a bit crazy, lol!

Anyway, see ya!

Ludum Dare #29 was pretty awesome! In 48 hours, I made Dynamole, a fast-paced platform/running game about a mole escaping an exploding mine! Holy moley ;)!

Soon I'll make a timelapse of the livestream! By the way, thanks to all of you who stopped in to say hi on the stream; it's always really cool to see people in the chat.

So tell me what you think about Dynamole! If you think it's the hardest game ever, don't give up on beating it! You can do it!!

Play Dynamole!

Beep boop!
