Why does the bull-like robot have a gear instead of his penis?

BoMToons responds:

accident at his circumcision ceremony.


2013-10-11 13:16:13

is that batman

BoMToons responds:

He is the bat-robot you don't want, but that you need.

When the winged warthog dies, will the halves of his heads fall with unique collision to account for the potential of landing on different platform levels than the body, or did you just give the boss battle a single flat platform to avoid all that annoyance?

BoMToons responds:

There is an all flat area, but I'd still like to mess around with adding some unique physics to the chunks.

The G one reminds me of Sonic.

Why did you chose Zelda 2 as a basis for Chibi Knight?

BoMToons responds:

Yeah, going for a sonic feel on that one. And a megaman feel on the arm cannon one.

Zelda 2 is my favorite Zelda game!

The enemies look awesome. I can't wait to try the beta :D
Speaking of which, do you have any idea when will you release it?

BoMToons responds:

Not really, hopefully early 2014.

What do you think the world will be like in 100 years?

BoMToons responds:

Hm, I'm not sure I have any original thoughts on this. One thing I hope is that we will have colonized Mars, or at least the moon.

Maybe computers will have finally made the leap to being INSIDE our bodies and controlled by thought/integrated with thought as both input AND feedback.

Hopefully the world is more united and we've found a way to live happily on our planet without destroying it.

how big is your penis?

BoMToons responds:

Bigger than your avatar icon, so like 30 pixels or so.


2013-10-12 07:38:12

Hmmm, another action packed adventure game?

BoMToons responds:

Sorta. Kind of puzzle game mixed with action/adventure.

When the large black robot knight is walking, his foot steps are raising dust from the ground.
Will you make it so that the dust appears inside the robot's sprite in between the legs, while adjusting its own position every frame so that is stays in the same place in the outer coordinate system?

BoMToons responds:

Ideally the dustpoofs will be placed programmatically so they stay on the ground independent of the knight's movement. This is mostly just proof of concept artwork.


2013-10-12 15:46:46

Actually I meant the occasion when the user gets a strange feeling of oddness while watching the dustpoofs appearing in front of the character's front leg (right leg in this case), although the dustpoof is created by the back leg (left leg in this case). I meant that you can fix this by displaying the dustpoof from the back leg inside the character's sprite, behind his front leg.
To make this post not a waste of a question, if I am allowed to ask 2 questions, then:
Q) Do you enjoy drawing backgrounds for levels any more?

BoMToons responds:

Yeah, I get what you're saying, I was just lazy about placing the poof for that back leg.

I've never enjoyed drawing backgrounds!

A hundred questions... per person? Since you chose boars, were flying pigs too sterotypical? Where you inspired by DK? Why isn't the armored knight doing anything? What does he actually look like? Will alternative costumes be a feature? Are any Easter Eggs planned? What are you dressing up as for Halloween? Best movie of the year in your opinion? Have you seen White House Down yet? If so, opinions? Why do they put out both White House Down and Olympus Has Fallen, two supremely similar flicks, both in the same year? How much NG dump space do you have left? How many hours each day do you spend on work? What are your opinions on the new cloud-based Adobe product suite? These questions were all inspired by those links.

BoMToons responds:

1. The hundred question limit is more of a guideline than a strict rule. Sometimes having a limit makes you more careful about what you write. ie: twitter

2. It's supposed to be a play on "when pigs fly" but boars are much cooler than pigs.

3. Donkey Kong? No, does it have something similar?

4. Knight is just there as a scale reference.

5. I don't know what he actually looks like... maybe his helmet is bent onto his head and no one has ever seen him...

6. There will probably be other playable characters

7. I don't know of any easter eggs, but there will probably be some.

8. I would like to dress as popeye the sailor man

9. Haven't seen any really good movies this year. Star Trek was a fun ride. Really want to see Gravity, but no friends to go with... :(

10. Haven't seen White House Down or Olympus Has Fallen, but kind of ironic names considering the government shutdown.

11. My NG dump is all the way full, but it still lets me upload, so I'm not complaining.

12. I usually try to work at least 8 hours a day, sometimes more, but I have a family that needs some attention so I try to work a pretty normal schedule.

13. I hate the "subscription" model. I want to own my software outright. I use my stuff so much that it will definitely cost me more to "subscribe" to it than to just buy it outright. I think it's a lame move where they're saying they're "cutting edge" but are really just trying to make more money.

Unlucky #13 questions... SPOOOOKY!

As far as I know, flying pigs made their living debut in Donkey Kong Land. There may be some earlier guest appearances I'm unaware of though. Hmm, pigs are a boar. Thanks for good answers! That Dump cheat was an especially interesting revelation...

BoMToons responds:

Shhh... keep it secret, keep it safe!
