A Koopa’s Revenge Version 2.0 Teaser and Open Beta

Here’s a sneak peek of the long awaited update for A Koopa’s Revenge 2. This will be the last major update to AKR2. I mean it this time.

The update will include more balanced powerups, upgraded artwork, improved physics, new skins for the first five bosses, an import/export function for save files, and more. For a complete changelog, see this post on NG.

Speaking of Newgrounds, that’s where I’ll be conducting the beta testing. Anyone with a Newgrounds account can play the beta version, though there will be an annoying BETA plastered across the screen. Sorry about that. I just don’t want anybody scooping me on the videos. Anyway, I’m requiring an NG account to play because I figure letting literally anyone play it would be the same as releasing it outright. Just a little barrier to entry.

A Koopa’s Revenge 2 Music Playlist

I’ve received requests for a playlist of A Koopa’s Revenge 2’s music. But I haven’t because I won’t upload other people’s content to youtube, and even if all the music is on there uploaded by the original authors finding it all would be a huge task. But it turns out Newgrounds does playlists now, so here it is:

I’ll probably add an icon later. Somebody remind me.

P.S. Sorry for the lack of activity lately. I got a little burned out.

Minions Must Die gets Front Paged on Newgrounds

Minions Must Die NG Front Page

Minions Must Die is currently gracing the front page of Newgrounds. This means a bunch more exposure. As a non famous animator, my stuff always does better on NG than the youtubes. Front Page really hammers that point home. Though the cartoon is doing okay on Youtube as well. Mostly due to it being embedded on this site.

Also, this happened!

AVGN: Trapped in the NES Closed Beta Begins

AVGN: Trapped in the NES
AVGN: Trapped in the NES is finally moving forward a bit. I’m starting a closed beta test over on Newgrounds. Unfortunately because of some bad experiences I’ve had with previous beta testers, it’s going to be a pretty exclusive beta. At least until I get it to a semi finished state.

Anyway, the game is a bit of a mash up of classic NES games, starring the Angry Video Game Nerd, and makes reference to some of his videos. It’s not as big a game as AKR2, so it shouldn’t take years to come out. If all goes well, I hope to have it done by the end of summer. If not released, at least in a state where I’m making changes to a essentially finished game based on player feedback.

If you want, you can read much of the same info over on NG. And if you want to follow the development of the game, and the beta specifically, a lot of information about that will be posted on my Newgrounds page. But I’ll still be sharing the major milestones here.
