ACHTUNG! Important News Post

Hi there NG,

my latest film is part of the Viewster Film Festvial, which is apparently the largest online festival on earth (well, there aren't that many I guess). The great thing is, that they have tons of money that they are eager to burn. The grand prize is circa 50 000 $ which would come in handy for a new pair of shoes.

If you like my stuff, or hate everyone else, you probably want to help me out by voting for my film "40 Thoughts" here:

http://www.viewster.com/movie/1293-19313-000/40-thoughts/

[EDIT: The festival is over, so this link won't work anymore]

I'm very thankful for everyone who does vote and I consider him/her an overall cool person. I'm currently ranked #20 out of 142, but only the first 10 will have a chance of winning something. So yeah, every vote helps a lot.

 

Needless to say, the film will come to Newgrounds soon(ish) as well!

 

In other news, I'm currently working on a game called "The Longing", where you spend 400 days in a cave.

Here is a sneak peek:

Time to murder people!

Believe it or not, but molkman and myself are celebrating 10 YEARS of exotworking.com (*yay*)!

We started out in 2004 by making rather crappy animations and "games" (with flash buttons).

Most of the stuff we did back then isn't even on Newgrounds btw so you might have missed all the phun. If you're interested, you can play our very first "games" here. They are all rather unforgiving and bloodthirsty. And ugly.


Just click on the pics! All the games are from 2004/2005.

Luckily, the days of prepubescent love for violence have faded in favour of more complex themes and thoughts.

This is our new game, it's called "MURDER".

Hello there NG,

 

I just submitted my film "Quintessence" to the portal! The film was made in 2013, but my university

wouldn't allow me to submit it (until now). 

 

There is lots of stuff I'd like to submit as well, but those regularies can truly be a bummer.

All I can give you right now is this sad picture (again).

:)

Black Metal

Updated

Hello there NG.

I finally uploaded my film Anaktoron which was made during winter 2012. It is a loose continuation of the storyline started in Hyperborea (2011).

 

Lé click!

 

I used music by Paysage d'Hiver, one of my all-time favourite bands and I'm extremely happy that they (or rather "he") allowed me to do so.

If you haven't heard any black metal Paysage d'Hiver might be hard to get into, but I promise you that it's well worth the patience. It is of such otherworldly beauty that every word to describe the actual music is futile. However, the beauty is hidden beneath layers of distortion just like beauty is hidden in reality and can't be seen without a certain kind of devotion. 

So, if you are willing to spend some time on the internet to search for obscure music, I can highly recommend you this legendary one-man band hailing from Switzerland.

 

So long!

November's Gloom

Seeing the leaves and the temperatures fall makes my heart feel great joy.

I made a little film to accompany the coming season. It's a small tribute to The Simpsons.
Watch it here on NG.

Lucky Tower 3

2012-12-05 17:12:16 by exotworking

Hello folks,

this day marks the release of Lucky Tower 2 here on Newgrounds!

You can play it HERE.

For those who have followed the storyline so far, I thought it might be interesting to hear about future plans on the series.
Lucky Tower 2 is actually a prequel to Lucky Tower 1, but as you might know Lucky Tower 1 ends with the hero being naked at the top of the tower.

Sooo... what about we continue the story from here in a possible Lucky Tower 3?

Being naked and without any armor or weapons, the hero won't be able to fight enemies.
Instead, he would need to hide from them or lure them into traps. Also, the tower would have changed from the first part, making it impossible to take the same routes and forcing the hero to find different ways to escape.

What do you think about this idea?

In other news, I'm currently working on a 12-minute animation about death.

Camembert of Sorrow

Hi,

As some of you might know, Benedikt (molkman) and I are currently studying animation together.
Sadly, we can't put all of the animations we produce in academia on the internet for copyright reasons.

I already made a 6 minute film, which is a sequel to Hyperborea called "Anaktoron".
And a month ago we both participated in a workshop which resulted in 2 animations about Red Riding Hood.

You can watch Benedikt's film here, it's already on Newgrounds:

This is my version:

Now I'm going to eat a tasty Camembert for lunch. Mmm!

Eating a N-64 Controller!

2011-09-20 09:11:26 by exotworking
Updated

I´m disappointed by the range of games that feature "N-64-controller-eating".
So I decided to make one myself with the likes of molkman and Tomppaah (fantastic musician!) and you can have a look at the result here:

Da Vinci's Skycycle Chase Of Eternal Glory

Of course, the controller-eating is just a small feature, and I might add that it results in the tragic death of the protagonist (Leonardo da Vinci in this case), but nonetheless I feel like I have achieved something.
Now, here are several links to fill up space:

Rumors are true, Lucky Tower 2 will have tons of dialoge and different characters!
So we (molkman and myself) are in need of some additional voices, for our buddy Dragamex (who hopefully is still alive) can´t handle them all.

If you liked Lucky Tower and want to do voices for the second part, just drop a PM!
You won´t regret it :3

In other news, this is a picture from our upcoming game that´ll be released this month.
Da Vinci on a skycycle, escaping from a bloodthirsty dragon - need I say more?

Lucky Tower 2 needs you! (Unless you have a purple moustache)
