Hey guys. Thanks for all the birthday wishes. It's not my birthday anymore. Tomorrow is my last day at work, so I'll be back on the game next week. The site has been getting crushed by rising traffic again. I'm going to stop being surprised by this. So if your game has been hanging this week, sorry about that. I will most likely be upgrading again this weekend. It just seems I keep having to pay a lot more for what seem like minimal upgrades that are adequate for all of a week.
Tomorrow night I'll be attending an exhibition in Manhattan that is featuring 6 games from some independent developers. One of the games is Canabalt, which was pretty cool. You can read about the event here
. It's basically a showcase of video games as art.
I went to art school, and I'd like to consider what I do as my artwork. I don't like the idea that presenting what I'm doing as a game somehow cheapens it. It's very frustrating, as I'm busting my ass hundreds of times more than when I used to just draw some still pictures. Anyways, I guess I'd just like to be a part of these things... so I'll be over there schmoozing around. If anything, It would be nice to meet some other people in the field in person. I don't seem to meet them when I remain in my bedroom.
Also, a couple days ago I came across this video
. The sheer, irrational determination of this man to reach his goal with complete disregard for his own well-being isn't something I thought I'd see in real life. Anyways, I'm surprised I haven't seen this sad event remade in Happy Wheels yet. I did see a few levels of the segway owner guy driving off a cliff.

I really like this game.. But it gets me kinda frustrated that you dont take your time and really update this site more.. Or getyourself a group to help you develop this game further. With this game you can become rich goddammit. I love you man and thanks for making this awesome ragdoll game (= I love seeing the kid die

By Aldak on Oct. 8th, 2010 02:24AM
lol, I saw this too, oh you. Your game is an art, don't you think different. I don't know if I will ever be able to stop playing this game, thank you so much for making it ^^
By Bert on Oct. 8th, 2010 02:41AM
I am addicted to this game, lol. I also saw that it posted it on Jan. 1st, 1970 12:00am, most likely as a joke :P hopefully sometime next week we see an update.

make new carrictors
By SilentSouth on Oct. 8th, 2010 03:56AM
I'ts only fair that you go and do what you want to do right, go to that event and enjoy yourself, maybe spread around about your game/art for people to check it out etc.
If you made loads more levels and characters perhaps unlockable i'm sure you could turn this game into a download and keep this sight running as a demo to promote it, i'm sure people would be willing to actualy buy this game.
By Lorkas on Oct. 8th, 2010 07:18AM
I'll meet you there, then!

By twowire on Oct. 9th, 2010 12:06AM
thank you so much for this site!!!
its all that keeps me sane during my comp. sci. class.
anyway, my only idea is to make the game fullscreen even if only when you're designing a level. unless you can... then i missed that... but if not, other then characters, thats all i need!
and so you know man, that video is messed up. seriously.

By Zeldy on Oct. 9th, 2010 10:02PM
Can you make it so that people can't vote for their own levels? I'm kind of sick seeing shitty levels with 5 stars.
Also, happy belated birthday!
