Coworkers pointed Lucky train to me yesterday and I thought it had some familiar look to it. Nice so far. Runs really smooth too. Cant wait to get the russian jet train  ;D In our game we're having some trouble with isometric depth sorting in flash that results in a really poor framerate  :'(

Very cool huzba.  What company do you work for again?  we used quad-tree sorting.  where only small potions of the map are resorted depending on the location of objects that are changing/moving.

GOOD ART! Wonderful rendering of things. It manages to keep the EVERYONE-FRIENDLY facebook feel but still look amazingly pixel slick.

Wonderful! Really.

I work at Ironstar and we have a game out on facebook called Disco Empire. I've mainly worked on the beverages, user interface and technical things.
Characters and most of the furniture were outsourced to a guy who was an art director on Trine.
Gameplay has been syphoned from cafe world and the art is done in a strict leash of non-artists, so creativity is out the window  :blind:.

It's a shame that people of great talent, capable of engaging emotional games, have been tamed to work on social-circle-wankery...
Cherrypicking one could gather quite a team i reckon.

Back to trains, digital chocolate people have landed on Lucky Train too, so word goes around quickly.
Oh and thanks for the tip Indigo, mr coder seems to have an idea what you're talking about  ;D

Hear, hear.

I had almost stopped lamenting the fact and now I'm back feeling sad about it all D:

I'm a living example of this. As is Junkboy. As is Huzba.

Fffuuuu

Indigo, I really love those trains, and the buildings look like they were done by you too?

Surprisingly I feel better AFTER surgery on my wisdom teeth. Like, Vicodin is the medication of gods. I thought I would be down and out and have to postpone a job, but I AM THE MOST RARIN'.

someday someone does need to organize all you old timey accomplished pixel artists to form one amazing team. monopoly on pixels bwahaha c:

Same here.

It was more interesting when games were made by nerds, for nerds.
