SWEET GRIM

Filed Under (Announcements, Media) by Sonucais on 03-11-2011

We’re proud to publish our second JOYCOT Team Flash movie. Once again, animated by NinJaco, we bring you SWEET GRIM, submitted to Newgrounds last Halloween. We ended exhausted to publish it before the deadline, that’s why we haven’t done any official blog entry before. We started making the movie just after Madness Day’s results and it turned out to be a 4 minutes long animation. We tried to improve several issues “The Magician” has such as the lenght.

Probably, we will animate something for Christmas too due to public demand, and after that, Jaco will most probably already have his Cintiq ready, so we will start developing a game. Hope you’ll enjoy the movie.

Edit: There will not be any Christmas animation but Jaco’s has ordered a Cintiq already :)

Today is an important date for us. It’s the first time we had been able to finish a project and publish it before it’s deadline. As we said on Twitter few weeks ago, we had been working on a Flash animation to participate on Madness Day from Newgrounds. Although is not a game as many are still waiting, we can ensure it has quality.

The Magician has been totally animated by our artist NinJaco and directed and produced by our programmer Sonucais. CrisFox has also collaborated with some backgrounds. You can check the rest of the credits at the end of the movie. This sudden change from develope several games to decide start the film is due to we really need a Cintiq for Jaco to draw faster at a commercial game quality, since it’s tablet started to fail lately.

Any help spreading about The Magician would help us a lot! We hope you’ll enjoy the short as much as we making it! By the way, we have hidden few Easter Eggs!

Madness Day 2011
Tricky recommends you to grab some popcorn!

Hoy es una fecha importante para nosotros. Por primera vez hemos sido capaces de terminar un proyecto en equipo y publicarlo a tiempo. Tal y como dijimos en Twitter hace unas semanas, hemos estado trabajando en una animación Flash para participar en Madness Day de Newgrounds. Aunque no sea un juego como muchos aun esperan, podemos garantizar que la animación es de calidad.

The Magician ha sido totalmente animada por nuestro artista NinJaco y dirigida y producida por nuestro programador Sonucais. CrisFox también colaboró con algunas backgrounds. El resto de créditos podéis consultarlos al final de la película. Esta pausa tan repentina de estar desarrollando varios juegos a dedicarse a una animación es debida a que realmente necesitamos conseguirle una tableta Cintiq a Jaco para poder aprovechar el tiempo y a calidad de un juego comercial, ya que la que tiene ha empezado a fallar últimamente.

¡Cualquier ayuda para difundir sobre The Magician nos seria de gran ayuda! ¡Esperamos que disfrutéis del corto tanto como nosotros haciéndola! ¡Por cierto, hemos escondido unos cuantos Easter Eggs!

Boy, it has been a long time since our last update. Everyone knows about how fatal are last months of college but that was excessive. Lucky we’re now finally back for an intense summer! It’s sad but we can’t provide such a big update from this last quarter but small details. Some songs have been recomposed with a better rhythm. I’m attaching the new “Crab Pincers and Surf” doodle, however, still needs some fixes. I’m also sharing a bit from the HUD. In other hands, we made some more enemy doodles. Who wants to see again the particle effect we shared on Twitter months ago? Here’s the link.

We’re also interested in Microsoft XNA. We have already tried some stuff, specially with Robin Debreuil’s SWF2XNA, but no luck at all so far. Problem is we need to jump from ActionScript and learn some C# if we want to make an XBOX360 port someday, doesn’t look hard at all but it is important to learn the basics. The blog has some minimal changes such shareaholic. That’s all… by the way, JOYCOT Games is now 2 years old.

Chico, ha pasado un largo tiempo desde la ultima entrada. Todo el mundo sabe lo terribles que son los últimos meses en los estudios pero esto ya fue excesivo. ¡Por suerte ya hemos vuelto para un intenso verano! Es triste pero no podemos dar muchas actualizaciones de este ultimo trimestre pero si algún pequeño detalle. Algunas canciones se han recompuesto con mejor ritmo. Adjunto el nuevo borrador de “Crab Pincers and Surf” aunque aun necesita algunos arreglos. También adjunto un poco de la HUD. Por otra parte, hemos creado algún que otro diseño de enemigo. Quien quiere ver el efecto de partículas que compartimos en Twitter hace unos meses? Aquí esta el link.

Ahora estamos ademas interesados en Microsoft XNA. Ya hemos probado alguna cosa, especialmente con el SWF2XNA de Robin Debreuil, pero no hemos tenido mucha suerte por ahora. El problema es que tenemos que pegar un salto de ActionScript y aprender un poco de C# si queremos hacer un port para XBOX360 algún día, no parece difícil pero es importante aprender la base. El blog ha sufrido cambios mínimos como shareaholic. Eso es todo… por cierto, JOYCOT Games ahora tiene 2 años.
