Filed Under (Announcements) by Sonucais on 05-04-2012

Recently, our movie “SWEET GRIM” has been nominated for the Newgrounds 2011 Awards along with other 21 great movies from the Portal. It is a big surprise since we never tried get this far, it’s a nice touch. We totally don’t expect more from this and we already know there are way much better movies in the list, but we will be waiting for the results just like little girls. Go check the movie nominees at Newgrounds Wiki: 2011 Awards. We will keep you informed of any update about the awards.

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!

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!

Welcome everyone who’s reading our first entry. This is JOYCOT’s founder and I’ll like to do an introduction for everyone who is new here. I’ll like to point that we’re not a company (but we would like to believe so!), we’re not experts writing or talking in English but we always do our best. As you may know, we like to make some quality Flash games on our free time.

JOYCOT (also known as 3guys1game or 3g1g project) was founded on May 15th 2009, with an small collaboration of a Newgrounds‘s event. We changed of name on Aug 2th 2010. Our current and first game is MoonGold, an arcade side-scrolling shooter (SHMUP), we had been working on it for a year now (somehow slow though). The purpose of this blog is to talk about the development of our games, share material about them and write news about JOYCOT itself. The blog is not finished yet, we would like to finish customizing it but we don’t have enough knowledge about CSS but it’s okay for now. We’re using AllBlue theme, be sure to enjoy your stay. Here’s a picture of Kazami, main character from MoonGold. - Sonucais (Aug 31th, 2010).
