The new home of everything I do. Including the sequel to OOORB that nobody asked for :)

Ciao.

So I did upload a game just now. It's called OOORB and if I try to describe it here then I'm going to send you to sleep, so just play it. I could have uploaded it about 2 years ago, but it was going through an identity crisis back then. At first it was going to be Blobbium 2, similar to the first one but with extra mini-games. Then I abandoned that idea and focused more on the mini-games (though the orb thing is the only one I managed to get working.) Then Portal 2 came out and suddenly I wanted to do some kind of story mode.

It's gone through so many different names: Glynt, G Game, LytFLA, Clorbs, Colorbz, Yrbs... (a quick search on Urban Dictionary was enough to get me to change some of these) I ended up with OOORBS but honestly let's just call it 'the game,' because I'm probably not going to make any more soon. I wanted to get this out there because it's the most technically advanced thing I've managed to do on Flash by myself, and it always annoyed me having it lying around. Enough. My high score is 228. Go beat that and tell me about how I suck at my own game.

OOO...


Well, basically...

I have a new animation out, Shoenice's Inside Story

It's the first (of hopefully many) animations made under the Shoe Sandwich name. Shoe Sandwich (coincidentally having nothing to do with Shoenice) is the name of the group I formed with regular collaborators Ben and Sean. I think I talked about it in my last news post. I also said something about not posting stuff on Newgrounds any more. Well it just so happened that this animation didn't need any post-swf touching up, so thats why it's here. Can't say the same for future things. Enjoy my stuff while you can.

And you should really check out Shoenice's YouTube account if you have no idea who he is.

Well, basically...


What I do now

2012-05-23 16:49:28 by tank2tank

Shoe Sandwich Inc is a group featuring me and the other guys who worked on The Something Chronicles. Basically it's where my focus is gonna be - we do regular podcasts and we've got loads of potentially great things planned over the coming months. You should check it out, assuming you aren't a cynical douchebag who only wants me to make Stupid Mario sequels.

I don't even use Newgrounds any more. This is the first time I've logged in since the redesign. It's pretty redundant for me now - when I'm making something in Flash I'll tend to leave the sound out of it and tidy things up with post processing - swf is such a shitty train-wreck of a format these days. I'm not gonna remove any of my old stuff, just don't expect to see me around any time soon. So get your ass over to Shoe Sandwich and my individual YouTube account.



A new submission from me? Haha, you must be kidding aren't you. No, I'm not kidding, it's called Tommy Wiseau's 127 Hours and it's tearing Newgrounds apart. In theory. Actually I have no idea. We'll have to wait and see. GO WATCH IT!

Something to do with stuff

I'm back from my trip to Jupiter. Has it really been that long since The Something Chronicles? Apparently so, which has led people to believe that I've abandoned Newgrounds altogether. (This is only 38% true) Well, actually, I'm sort-of working on several projects at the moment. Some are ambitious, some are trivial, some will almost certainly never see the light of day, some could be around sooner rather than later (in tank2tank time, anyway, so don't hold your breath.)

To confuse / foolishly build hype for what may or may not be completed in the foreseeable future, I've produced this cryptic image to tease a few of these things. It won't make any sense to anyone yet (if ever) but it's better than nought.

Anyway, if you really want to stay up to date with what I'm doing then the best place for you to hang around is probably my YouTube page, where I regularly post stuff, and you can also follow me on Twitter.
Now go away.

No need for me to go into detail here, just watch it. Watch ittt!!!

Resident Evil: The Something Chronicles is here!



All right people, I know you've been waiting a long time for my animating comeback, and now the wait is finally over. A brand new parody animation, Resident Evil: The Something Chronicles, is coming out on Monday, a three way thing between me and colleagues benchesh and anufittingname. Now I could sit here and babble on about it for ages but that won't do it justice. That's why I prepared a nice trailer for you all to drool over.

Resident Evil: The Something Chronicles COMING ON MONDAY



I happened to notice that today marks the 3rd anniversary of my first Newgrounds submissions, Balloon Fight and Stupid Mario Bros, that damned Mario spoof that everybody seems to love for some reason. I just thought maybe you'd be interested. No, I'm not planning any kind of massive anniversary treat or suddenly amaze everyone by releasing a Stupid Mario Bros 4 (boy, you'd love that wouldn't you, hahaha...)

Nope, but I will tease you a bit with some info on a new project I happen to be working on. The only details I want to release so far is that It's a flash animation, one that I'm working on with 2 other people, and it should be done by the end of the year (don't quote me on that by the way.)

Follow me on Twitter, where I'll be revealing a lot of more info in the coming months.

And now for a disturbingly cryptic work-in-progress screenshot. It is not in any way going to help you guess what it will be about.

3 years since my first Newgrounds submissions...
