Hello all! Thanks to those of you that played and rated 'Misadventure'! It was a pretty weird experiment, making fun of games that existed before many of you were born, played on tube-based televisions in stucco-walled apartments while people disco danced in the streets. But I'm happy with the reaction! I WAS hoping for more of a religious backlash, but whatever.
This was made during one of the roughest times of my life. Getting it out there sorta closed the door on that period, and though I still have a gaping hole to crawl out of, it really helps to focus on people giving praise, hatred, bug-reports and complaints about old-timey game controls.
The bad times for me have lasted several years, really -- but it was during that time that I got back into programming, and it soon became a major obsession/distraction, and Tom Fulp and Newgrounds, as they have been for years, were major parts of this new focus. Now I feel I've boosted my skills considerably, though with friggin' technology changing practically every day it's a constant fight to stay up-to-date. Friggin' progress! Gettin' too old for this shit!
Anyway, as I've stated previously, if I can do this stuff, you all can. Go make things! Make a video-game, make a board-game, make giant phalluses out of tin foil with a Jacob's Ladder crackling between them.
My motto: There's nearly infinite bad ideas for video-games out there. Just gotta make as many as I can!
P.S. I just discovered there are almost a hundred Let's Plays for 'Orange Roulette.' That's fucking scary.
