Sneak Peak at my first game...

Hey all! Well I'm almost complete with my first game ever! A full year in development. Very excited. I put together a very quick teaser trailer that showcases how nuts the game is. The official trailer will go into how the game works, but I was just excited to see what you guys thought of the randomly insane images flashing before your eyes ;) Enjoy!

    @anatomyofdreams do you drink a lot of energy drinks?
  • anatomyofdreamsanatomyofdreams Posts: 723Member
    @chakku yeah i can't wait to see what you two have been making!
    @alembic_softworks thank you! I tried to make the characters quirky, but also, hopefully, accessibly huggable ;)
    @andrewm2211 hahaha! The answer is yes. Im currently writing this response to you while on the treadmill, drinking red bull, and injecting pepsi into my veins. Doesnt everyone?

    I just got the 'duck' gag (it finally dawned on me!) :))
    It's even more insanely wonderful than I thought.

    I like to start the day with a cup of coffee and a bowl of delicious crack-cocaine.

  • anatomyofdreamsanatomyofdreams Posts: 723Member
    @socks crack-cocaine is so mid 80's. Get with the program here! Thats why i start every morning with an intoxicating cup of Caffeinated Gorilla Urine. It has just the right amount of beast-alpha-testosterone to really give me that perfect edge on the day.

    Love it dude! Duck!

    On that duck thing, I gotta share a story. A long time navy bud of mine and I were walking along the street with some shipmates long ago. He had his nose in a book while we were walking and was not really paying attention to the hazards the sidewalk provided. He's 6'4 and an upcoming parking sign was well below head clearance. As we approached I yelled "Chris Duck!". He replied "quack..quack" In a sarcastic whatever-like tone.

    Whack! Insta-pwned. It was beautiful. Brings a tear to my eye just thinking about it.

    All that over a little duck. Awesome work. Can't wait to see the playable game.

    You assume my coffee is made with water.

    Crack-cocaine might be mid 80's, but as a nutritional and healthy start to the day it cannot be beaten.

    I have to go with Socks on this one. Nothing like a tossed crack salad with meth-vinaigrette and toasted Krokodil.

    Awesome looking fun, Anatomy. That trailer is pretty awesome, too. Good luck with this, hope it does well for you.

    I have no friends. I'm a loser that makes video games all day. Will you be my friend?

    Utter craziness! Looks like a lot of fun! ;)

    @socks "you assume my coffee is made with water" - had me laughing my a** off!
    @RP haha great story! Although to be honest I did in fact have your old pal Chris in mind while making the game. I happened to be across the street when this happened. So i stole it. Cheers! ;)
    @slickzero thanks for liking the trailer too! Btw i owe you a million thanks as well for all your help along the way. So thanks!
    And thanks to everyone in here for the great support. Crap... Now i have to actually try and deliver a good game. ;)

    I think this trailer works well. You said here is an official trailer that explains the game mechanics. Not seen that obviously - but I think this does one does a good job of showing enough so the person watching would want to click through to a download page.

    Definitely stands out from other games! :)

    Give me a buzz if you need some original music in your games.

    Good job, remember you said you were almost finished it a while ago but had no idea it was going to be this interesting. Cant wait. And good luck with your "early morning drinking habbits."

    All the best

    @elfizm haha thanks!!!
    @honeytribestudios thanks! One thing i need to clear up though (and this is completely my fault), that i had said in my initial post that this trailer would explain the game mechanics. What i meant was that this is the TEASER trailer and that the OFFICIAL trailer (not made yet) would discuss the game mechanics. Haha because yeah- this totally explains nothing! So again that was my fault in not making that clear. For this teaser i just wanted to demonstrate the overall idea of the game, which is that its a very random experience.

    About the game:
    I'm hoping to get it released sometime mid february. An official trailer coming out soon hopefully. The game is, believe it or not, a "runner" genre game, but with a hopefully unique twist. I'll explain that more in the next trailer or video.
    As always thanks again for everyones support. Without all of your incredible help in these forums, this game, and everyone elses game, would not be possible.
    Thanks again!
