Kind of canon
In my opinion, Awesome Reach is the best flash you've posted on this site, simply because of the fact that you hadn't even played the game when you made it, so the only tool you had at hand for making it was the mere element of facial humor. Egoraptor, you are a great animator and artist, and I would personally love your work if you'd finally scrap the videogame parody humor and abide by the more personal and original style of humor that is visual gags. In this flash, it is fairly obvious that the whole argument of the joke and the last image are tangential in that they seek to make the viewer crack a laugh on their own style, but take the last expression out and all you have left is a bland joke about the future of a once successful videogame character. On the other hand, the visual humor/soon to be macros CAN stand on it's own and be hilarious, so it seems like a much more reasonable approach at comedy.
Animation wise, I love your work. The pastel colors are beautiful, your animation is really good and I dig your style, but it doesn't make up for a poorly written joke.
Also, I like the outlines on the characters. Really stylish and good looking.
I absolutely LOVED this. Amazing animation and background art. After some time on the Internet, I thought I was prepared for everything; but watching Poe references beg Justin Bieber for help is something I'm gonna feel unclean for.
I also see you fellas fixed the sloppiness of color fillings in the most fast paced movieclips from the video that was uploaded on Youtube. A brilliant job!
Wow that's pathetic, I cannot believe someone would miss the fact that this is not intended for the typical audience of grey shapeless blobs who want to watch videos of videogames because it's the only kind of reference to pop culture they understand, and they don't get any other type of humor. Sorry people, this is slightly past that, barely touching the surface of mockery towards the aforementioned people.
My favorite episode so far.
An interesting project
I'll be as brief as possible in this, still hoping you read this because the game has a few main design flaws that seem to have corrupted it.
- When trying to implement momentum, you must not be hitting any of the movement keys and your character will not warp.
- Momentum works in every direction. Running fast in an horizontal plane still carries dynamic energy, which could've been used. Falling in high speed still carries a lot of propulsion from G forces, thus, it sounds like it would be a lot of fun to see some levels that allow you to use this feature.
Finally, I might add that in physics, the instance that carries the most momentum is when your feet have just elevated above the ground, not when you're at the highest point in the jump.
Please, do keep making games like this one, I really enjoy seeing puzzle games based on Portal-ish concepts like this one.
Avg. 9, damn straight, homeboy.
A not so good idea, though really well done.
The game, like I said, is a fair idea extremely well executed. There's one big problem with this game, and that is that it's the type of game that tries to get the player to keep playing by offering a big selection of options and unlockables, however, it's a casino-like game. Casino games aren't really the type of game that a regular player spends a lot of time in. This is pretty much caused because of a few reasons; one of them is the fact that the only way to play the game without completely relying on luck (Which will have you losing all the time) is having to constantly manage the amount of money you carry before you place every bet, which slows down the pace of the game a lot; other reason is the fact that the player has little to no actual influence of the different playable games, so there isn't really any other challenge at all, and the game becomes really frustrating. Finally, the fact that it's a casino simulator is already a big invitation to go home and take the money you've made as soon as you begin losing.
The game's execution is what I particularly liked. The tender graphics Nathaniel made are extremely stylish and, at the same time, mature, making a great complement to the game. The music was also a joyful, though repetitive tune.
Finally, the game has a few interface issues. The stocks window takes up most of the screen and disables movement totally, and in order to start up a game, the player has to use the mouse to indicate the money to bet and then lick to start, when it'd be much more practical to be able to just type in the money automatically and press Enter to start.
You are bad people
I feel really bad for that Chris guy
Man I miss working wichoo
Those were some nice times.
lmao either way, this really sounds great. It truly goes beyond the "classic" music you can find on the audio portal which is basically "omg hes hitting notes in a rythm, 5 smiling darnells", but the whole piece just flows together so well, it kindly surprises me each time I listen to it. At no point I could tell "ok this guy is building up and then break through it with a faster, stronger composition", which is something normally bugs me on other classic pieces, but this is really well balanced.
Technical and aesthetic aspects aside, this has a lot of raw feeling on it, it evokes a lot of mental images, and has a really familiar, however different vibe which I haven't seen (heard) achieved in a long time.
Fred learnt how to rap!
Seriously, don't come back until you're old enough for this site, you're obviously 10.
no fuck you its a free contry
I know something is good
When my jaw drops. Flawless composition, amazing lineart, awesome coloring and great lighting.
i hope you like it, this is the last time i do lineart
JB sucks; you don't.
People on this site never cease to amaze me (and sometimes amuse me) with their stupidity. This is Newgrounds, thus, the score of this review is based entirely on how good the art is, and it's terrific. I agree Justine Beaver's music is terrible, but if you wanna review her music, go on RollingStone.com or PitchforkMedia; but this is merely graphic. And if you wanna score this low because it's 'sellout', go back to doing meth in your department.
I have to say that i really like your coloring style, there's a really pretty looking metallic feel to the colors, and I think it's really admirable that you went for such a complicated perspective, and you nailed it properly. Outstanding job!
Personally, I think it's hilarious that I, a Marilyn Manson fan, am drawing Justin Bieber cover. People are just way to serious.
This is amazing; not only I really respect the amount of time this must've consumed, but on an artistic side, this is really well done. The shading and detail are both amazing, and the fact that it was made with acrylics is just even better. Probably the only problem I would have with this is that it might be a bit unbalanced juxtaposition wise, but everything else is just flawless. I would love to see some steampunk from you :)
Thanks for the great comment. Yeah there's litteraly no composition in this piece since it's entirely filled with random crap haha.
