When there's no more room in hell...

Something my granddaddy used to tell us... You know Macumba? Voodoo. Granddad was a priest in Trinidad. Used to tell us "When there's no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth."

I was finally in the mood to make a cover honoring one of my absolutely all-time don't-you-forget-it you-better-believe it top 5 favorite movies EVAH today, so I just went with it (with a wink and a nod to the second "I Can Read Movies" I ever did- hey who wants to live forever anyway?). Zombies. That's who.

"What the hell are they?"

"They're us, that's all."

Me Winning at Tetris Because Someone On the Internet Told Me I'm Not Good At It

It was 6 in the morning and I was pretty tired from working, so it was kinda hard to tell if I had my priorities straight.

Hey look! That one's got a cute little stripe on its head.

Hey look! That one's got a cute little stripe on its head.

Finally! The long lost second book in the "I Can Read Movies" Series! I've been looking for this baby for the longest time, you guys. And believe you me, I had to pay a pretty penny to get it in such good condition. *gently seals in protective UltraPro bag*

No but REALLY, this was going to be the second book ever- right after Space Jam. I just couldn't get a handle on it, so I moved on to Highlander. What an EXCITING story! :D And don't forget, you can see the entire series in its own easy-to-use gallery right here.

"You know there's some things I forgot to tell you guys... and they're really important."

Real tough mothers, ain't ya? You guys don't show me much. Why don't you dickheads just walk all the way back home, huh?

I knew when I woke up today that I wanted to make another "I Can Read Movies" cover, I just had no clue what movie to pick. It's been too damn long, I tells ya! 3 months, I think! I hope it came out okay. The Warriors is one of my favorites, and I don't want to let it down. CAN YOU DIG IT?!

Don't forget that you can see the entire series in its own easy-to-use gallery here!

Tetris Meets Spacesick!

I was playing Tetris and messing around with some new songs for my game today, and being the FAN that I AM I just had to see what they'd look like combined. Blah blah blah! I look like I suck at this game, but in reality, I'm a Tetris Master. I was intentionally building a little nook of blocks there so I could sneak some pieces into it all slick-like... but the video ends before I get to show off. >_< What a maroon! I guess that's what I get.

All new songs are mine. Tetris is obviously property of its owner - which was Electronorgtechnica last time I checked. ELORG TO THE MAX!

Nes Game Baddie: Raddish!

Nes Game Baddie: Raddish!
Just foolin around in Illustrator, drawing a character you might have already seen in one of the game demos. I don't think the drawings for the manual I have planned will look like anything this. I'll probably try to make them look as much like the old Zelda and Mario manuals as possible. I know you care! It's all very interesting, I'm sure! zzzzzzz

Buy them at your local bookstore or use this handy coupon for ordering!

Ever since I was a kid, I always thought the wonderful lettering and mail order forms in the back of paperback books were the coolest. I'm weird. Anyway, just thought I'd share!

lol @ how many of those THRILLERS were been made into movies! I lost count.

Thanks for a Million Flickr Views! :D

Who's the Miniboss? New playable level!

Woohoo! An update! I've been working on a lot of new features and enemies this week, and thought I'd show you guys this new miniboss system I've been trying. I've also been working out bugs one by one, and I KNOW there's some big ones in this update, so don't be afraid to mention stuff you find! Thanks, guys!

Might as Well JUMP!

Thanks for all the help pointing out bugs and features you'd like to see, guys! Keep em comin! :D It might not look like much, but I did wanna share some exciting new updates for today (which took FOREVER to figure out, believe me).

- Water and Exit doors
- Super jump when you bounce off an enemy's head (try it!)
- Enemy goes POP! when you destroy it
- New health system and stat bar
- New enemy! I still wanna work on it some more though.

Things to work on as soon as I can:

- Extend the stat bar at the bottom
- A walking sound
- Tighten up various jump/enemy defeating glitches
- Continue working on the tiles and sprites
- Fixing the jumping error that occurs when there's only 2 spaces of room to jump

Hooray! Tomorrow I might take a break from all of this damn programming and actually draw something. Like maybe that little roller blading radish character up there. I know you care! I can see it in your eyes. *roller blades away*

Lots of New Features in This NES Game Update. Check it Out! :D

New update today! I'm so pumped for this, guys. I can't believe I'm playing my own Nintendo-ish-esque-kinda-sorta game. The flashing part after you get hit was the hardest part so far, but I knew I wanted it bad enough to keep trying! Woohoo! :D

New in this update:

- Top of the screen now extends beyond visible area
- You can hop on an enemy's head to destroy it
- Removed the shooting feature for now
- Running into an enemy makes you lose health and bounce back
- If the enemy was heading in your direction, running into makes it turn around and go the other way
- You momentarily flash and are impervious to damage immediately after being hit
- Win screen
- Game Over screen

Shout out any features you think this baby needs, even if you've heard em said before. And don't be afraid to mention things that look off, or any glitches that you may find! Every litter bit helps. Thanks again, guys! :D
