is it just me...?

on: January 28, 2009, 05:50:16 pm
... or has the world gone mad?

First bobs game - and now this?

Check out the FAQ - particularly the bit about 2d art...

"How do you draw your textures for 3D games?
I use a little-known program called Painter 5. However, all you really need is a program that has a good "Airbrush" tool. That's how you achieve the realistic shading in things like faces. As for costumes, there are many templates in the bonus material of the CD version... 


How do you make the graphics for your 2D games?
They were initially edited from a game called Fire Pro Wrestling. I took a screenshot, cut out the character I wanted, then edited them beyond recognition - using the original graphic as an outline. Nowadays I'm experienced enough to draw the graphics from scratch (in Microsoft Paint) so I've pretty much made the style my own..."

Well done, dude. That takes a lot of skill. Hear a professional speak and learn.

That latest game he's been working on, The You Testament, was recently reviewed here. (There was a link today on Slashdot)

Colossal ego, small talent, everything I can't stand.

I'm tired of these clowns, are they joking or what? This guy can't be serious.

Generally I donīt want to speak bad about people, but he is pretty (too?)confident about the things he do. Thats for sure.
Somehow amusing is his "autobiography", from the text you think he works for already 20 years in the industry.
And I am pretty sure he would benefit to work in a team.

I give him some respect for working as a one man "team", but to be honest his games looks like
generic trash.

Didnīt know that painter is that little-known, the airbrush statement is pretty vague.
Always someone says he work proffesional with ms paint something dies in me.

I can't really find anything resembling a learning curve in the screenshots. The old games look as crappy as the new. He's probably learned to work faster and thinks that equals to improving skills.

This is so idiotic it's obviously genius. I am stunned that someone could make a game this bad, and it appears to be unintentionally so. At any point did he think that pro wrestling sounds might not fit in a game about one of history's most influential figures? The code that makes the NPCs stomp on anyone who falls down seems like a left-over from a wrestling game engine. Was he too lazy to take that out? Could he not find the code? Or even more frightening, did he think it fit the theme?

Also...karma?

This was a belly lol for me. Seriously. I think this is a wonderful piece of satanic art.

Funny clip, blumunkey.  It's like hte engine explodes after Jesus raises Lazarus fom the dead. Jesus falls to hte ground nad can't get up. The NPCs run into walls and everyone randomly starts fighting.

This must be a gigantic joke. Reading his youtube profil I canīt imagine someone in his right mind can produce such
junk and talks in such big words about how great he is.

But these videos just made my day :y:
