it's been a long time since I posted here, but a lot has happened in the past few years!
As some might remember, molkman and I have been working together since 2004 on such smash-hits as Lucky Tower, Lucky Tower 2 or MURDER. Since we finished our diplomas last year, we have started to set sail on the ocean of the animation- and games-scene once again; This time, equipped with more cannons and masts than ever before, ready to conquer!
We recieved funding for my long-time passion project :THE LONGING: which will be released near the end of 2018.
We are also thinking of finally getting our act together and acquiring funds for the elephant in the room that is Lucky Tower 3...
Here's the hot and fresh Teaser for :THE LONGING:
And here's one mysterious picture of concept art:
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:
[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:
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).
Hello there NG.
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.
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.
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.
727 days ago, we published Lucky Tower here on Newgrounds.
Time to celebrate this event by the release of a Lucky Tower 2 Trailer!
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!
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:
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:
