Hey y'alls, we're revving things up for the 2010 NG calendar.

Get in on the hot action here:

http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/11 00426

The calendar came out really well last year. I'm very proud of it, and it performed wonderfully in the store too. I hope we get a similar turn out of NG's finest for this year's edition.

Additionally, my game with Luis and Rucklo is coming along dandy. I hope it's not a complete disappointment to all you people with high demands. It's been a fun, stream of consciousness ride, with some experimental gameplay on my end...My part is pretty much done, but Luis has many many hours of animation left on his end still - as per usual :)

Here's a sneak preview:

2010 NG Calendar

Just got back from San Diego for the '09 comic con!

The convention itself was pretty cool but, as always, getting to meet up with the real faces behind the usernames from NG was the best part.

The Behemoth also threw a great after-party on Saturday with drinks named for the CC knights and a tip jar that said "Level-up!" Also included was a great dinner with hand-made corn tortillas, carne asada, pork, and chicken TACOS!

I really enjoyed hanging out with Rog and Pox from I-mockery and watching people play the demo to our upcoming game. Chatting with everyone else was really sweet too.

Thanks to Deadspread for the sweet shirt, I'm pretty sure I was the only person wearing one at the con :)

I made a game yesterday for Luis Day...whatever that is.

Someone already posted a video of it on youtube...weird how fast these things happen.

Enjoy Luis' flatulence...WARNING SPOILERS!

I was surprised and happy to see that Castle Crashing the Beard recently passed a million views on NG. I'm really surprised that such a small game has enjoyed so much attention. Something special came together with that game...a good union of different skills and humor happened that is turning out to be tough to duplicate.

I hope the power of 3 thing reveals some similar "synergy" (buzzword) amongst the NG community. Right now I'm wondering what happened to Danomano and whether he's still planning to finish off our game.

Anyway, thanks to everyone who played and enjoyed CCTB! May its whiskery goodness live on!

(*fun fact: cctb has been played 7.8 million times across the web!)

So, Luis approached me to work on The power of 3. Per, Tom's request we decided to settle on the revenue split up-front to avoid conflicts at the end of the project.

Most of you probably think Luis is a really laid back easy-going guy, but when it comes to money, that guy turns into an oinker. The first project we worked on together (castle crashing the beard) he refused to give me any of the revenue because I wanted to submit it to the portal, I "hadn't proved myself yet," and "Tom is [his] friend, not [mine]."

The 2nd project was a little better. For Pico Blast, he gave me 10% but insisted he submit it to the portal. For Portal Defenders he raised my cut to 12% and finally let me in on the ad revenue.

So, when he said he wanted 90% for The Power of Three, AND to make the portal submission... I told him where he can stick his game.

I just think programmers and artists should be treated more as equals, but Luis just doesn't get it.

I had totally forgotten about this Zelda reference in Pico Blast.
