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 :)
Watch out, kids! He would kill for a bunch of sweet candies…

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!
Tricky recommends you to grab some popcorn!

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.

It’s time to enjoy vacation and get fresh forces for the New Year. Whole JOYCOT Team wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy upcoming New Year, but we would also like to announce our new talented artist, NinJaco. Welcome to JOYCOT my friend! Give a look to his deviantART gallery here, he has some nice skills. We have already started a Beat ‘Em Up game. So yeah, that was pretty much a short entry, we’ll keep working next year. Thanks everyone who followed our updates on Twitter for the whole past year!
