I'll be honest....
At first i was thinking "This is goig to be crap." And that these people with 10's were being sarcastic. Maybe they still are, but...
It wasn't crap.
It was a really cool proof of concept for a pretty interesting technique.
I think you should roll with this concept, it's pretty cool. Most people use strobes to annoy people. You, at least i am assuming so, are using the flashing to get a really cool strobe light effect.
Work on this concept, and it could become something really interesting.
Just remember those epilepsy warnings.
Amalloc - exceptional as usual.
I've really been enjoying this series. I'm both looking forward to the conclusion - so i can see what happens, because you left a nasty clifhanger there - and dreading it because you won't be making ore of these.
This series has done some serious development and changing of pace from it's inception.
I'm almost left wondering if you had all the episodes written from the beginning or if it's just developed along the way? It seems to tell a story that has evolved in an organic way, i don't know how else to describe it.
Really really good.
I'm assuming that this is a metaphor to some similar situation in real life? But what are the rabbit and cat representing? maybe i'll find out in Step5, or maybe i just haven't realized it yet...
Thanks for the incredible work, and with such emotion! Exceptional.
i'm in shock
I can't believe that i actually watched an entry that was made by a 'krew' 'clan' 'syndiacte' <whatever> that was actually a) not irritating. b0 not stupid c) well drawn d) entertaining and e) actually worth voting higher than a 0 on.
That was not what i expected when i saw that tag affixed to the front of the name... i was expecting a two second video loop. i was expecting a piconjo. i was expecting a phallus. but not THIS.
Nice change (from the usual crews) guys, that was funny, well drawn, entertaining, and worth my time.
Keep it up.
And it doesn't look like you are abusive in your review responses either!
LOL. I AM NOT AN ABUSIVE PERSON UNLESS IT COMES TO PIRATES.
Of course, now I have the "Arnold Rimmer song" stuck in my head, thanks, mate...
"I want me pea back!" Oh boy.. memories.
Anyway - quite a good twist on the classic Worms/scorched earth, tank battle genre - I like the planetoid/gravity gameplay.
Very well done. I've been playing for about an hour - so that's gotta count for womething =D
Stayed true to the bizarreness of the original Dad's home short, was extremely fun to play, and so random it's hilarious!
LOVED the walk smash walk tribute! =D
Lol @ the crews
You know, it took me nearly ten years but I've finally goten over my "rage" at the audacity that is the clock crew and their inane ability to produce sheer volumes of wasted bytes.
Today I realized... You know what? It really doesn't matter if there are "crews" out there, filling the portal with crap. That is the purpose that the portal serves - to weed out the garbage and the chaff, and leave what is good to get placed in positions of grandeur.
The crews will always be around, peddling their nonsensical putrescence, but, occasionally something of value rises to the top of the slurry.
This is one of those rising-to-the-top-of-the-slurry-thing s.
I don't know why, but I find this flash unbelievably entertaining. Perhaps it is the commentary on the typical RPG - the overblown takes-20-minutes-to-execute "special moves," the absurdity of shooting 30 rounds or a holy-crap-asplode rocket launcher at an enemy and having them fall to the earth in a heap, only to rise again, with an arbitrary number floating over their head, ready to retaliate with something equally absurd, such as a stampede of smaller versions of themselves or some fantastical dinosaur thing, or perhaps it is just the fact that no matter what i do i simply [emphasis, please] cannot die [/emphasis, please], but this, while simple and 'crappy' by 'elitist crew haters' standards, thoroughly entertained me.
Or, it could simply be the fact that it's midnight, and I should really go to sleep.
But I digress, I did not come here to wax philosophical on the merits and short-comings of the clock crew. I came here to provide 'props' and 'hollas' to the individual that finally made me realize the futility of becoming angry at the actions of a few anonymous individuals on a website that takes in submissions from every corner of the tripple-dub.
The true value of this monster of technology is that there is the freedom for people to create the likes of /b/ and newgrounds portal spam.
'Keep it realz, yo, home slice' and 'don't let the haterz bring ya down.'
Oh, and kitteh krew still does and always will suck. They're just worthless =)
You said quite a mouthful, I guess your used to that kind of thing.
Overall - impressive.
It's complex. Very much so - and I can only begin to imagine what the Piano Roll looks like for the channels. The individual melodies are clean, and pleasant, and I can hear that the track tells a story - whether this is intentional or not, I don't know.
However, there are a few things that I noticed while listening to this, chief among them is that all of the notes are playing at the same velocity, or at the very least, similar. This makes it sound like it is in fact a machine and not a real piano - and one of the things that FLStudio's keys generators have going for them is that they sound very real, especially with the inclusion of variable velocity on the individual key presses. If you were playing a piano in real life, you wouldn't press all the keys with the same force, and that allows you to simulate that...
Second - while the main melody is really rather pleasent, and the secondary melodies are as well, there is some dissonance between them, which, in some cases is ok, but not for this type of track. It makes it sound... off, like one part was not written for the other, and someone is blending them on the fly.
Finally (i know, I'm going on forever) there are parts of the track that, if played in real life, would require at least two people at the piano. This isn't bad, it just breaks down the sense of reality in listening to the track.
I hope that this criticsm doesn't come off the wrong way - the progression and the melody are both quite nice - it just needs some touching up =]
Quick not on dissonance: If you ever have an opportunity to do this it helps. A lot. Get together with a friend and have them sing a solid note. Doesn't matter wich one. Then, you, match it. If you are both sounding the same note, in your ears, it will sound like one solid note. Then raise (or lower) your note until you can feel an amost harmonious wave from one note to the other - that's harmony and both of these are resonance. Now raise (or lower) again, until you feel a warbling, or even, in some cases, a very unpleasent stuttering, not unlike having a window open to the "annoying threshold" n a car - where the air makes a repetitive thumping sound. That's dissonance, and that's what's happening with some of your "right-hand" notes on this piano track. Not severe, but still there.
Overall, though, not a bad piano track. and I hope my comments are helpful =)
thanks.... i apreciate your comments.... it was my first time i made piano riff that since i'm bored to make music creations....
well next time i will make another piano riff with more blending tunes....
anyway thanks for outstanding review..... :)
Don't do this to me waterflame!
This page has been open in FireFox since 12:30. It's now 2:05. I had my xbox SITTING with this track playing for about an hour the other night. My Knight got bored for crying out loud.
This is ridiculous.
I usually get sick of music after hearing it about 3 times, but not this track, oh no, heaven FORBID i get sick of this track. It's absurd. It's so unbelievably happy that i just can't make myself turn it off. I find myself doing some little goofy weird bopping dance every once an a little while. It's sick. It's making me sick, and i JUST CAN'T GET SICK OF IT!
It has increased my work productivity, i'll give you that.
Seriously, such a simple, easy going, clean track that hasn't got a single negative aspect to it anywhere. Dangerously addictive. It's like banana phone without the death. This track is unbelievably awesome.
I love it.
I like it!
It's really good, the original track is nice for one thing...
And what you've done to it works out quite nicely.
It's rather short, but i think you've done a really good job of holding true to (what sounds like the original) and adding a pretty sweet, kind of retro techno beat to the mix.
The melodies blend quite well..
