Salutations visitor of this less than oft-updated Newgrounds newsposts feed thing! In fact, why ARE you getting updates from me here? You should be getting them from me on Facebook or Twitter! Or even Youtubes! I update those a lot. Perhaps TOO much. But anyways! No time for chit-chat (but how are YOU? Fine? Good!), lots of things to get through so let's go get through them, chop chop!

First of all, Dungeonland is going to go into beta soon and you can sign up to be a part of the magic! The game features Josh Tomar as the Dungeonmaster and his minions, with Gray Gleason as the Warrior and myself as the Mage and the Rogue. Check out the trailer below to see what the game is all about, it's super nifty! Like a modern day Gauntlet!

Second of all, Heroes of Newerth just got a whole influx of people who also played characters in Dust: An Elysian Tail! I was fortunate enough to be included in that number and I am happy to announce that I play Red Raja - a Nomad alt avatar that's available right now! So be sure to play with me! That didn't sound weird at all! Shut up!

Speaking of Dust, I've uploaded footage of the character I voice, Fuse! Special thanks to BigK for giving me the footage to use for my nefarious purposes. Now you Xbox360-less people (like myself) can experience the magic without having to purchase a console just to see it! I'm sure everything else in the game was cool too, you'll just have to find other videos to see their coolness!

In fact, Dust was so cool that it was nominated for Best Independent Game of 2012 by SpikeTV's Video Game Awards! It's in the running against other tough contenders like Fez, Journey and Mark of the Ninja, so be sure to get in and vote early (and lots) for the game with the most ME in it! (Hint: it's Dust)

Fourth of all (I think it's fourth): I voice a character in Yousei, the third game in a murder-mystery adventure game series, the first two being Jisei and Kansei. I join a pretty goshdarned star-studded cast that includes people like Apphia Yu, Micah Solusod, Cherami Leigh, Christopher Niosi and Kira Buckland! It's available for pre-order right now, so you should probably head on over and check it out, as well as the previous two games if you haven't already.

FIFTH! Casey McDonald (part of the animation troupe known as Toonwerks) plays Amnesia: The Dark Descent while Christopher Boe, Zach Holzman and I watch on, utterly fascinated with his unhealthy obsession with picking up random objects and swinging them around. All kinds of hilarity happens in this video series, but I'm linking part 10 because it gets especially stupid here. So. Awesomely. Stupid.

Sixth, Affordable Audio 4 Everyone has released the Action RPG Characters and Merchants, Enemies, and Townsfolk dialogue library packs for sale, featuring voice acting from yours truly as well as a score of other talented mouth talkering people including Kimlinh Tran and Kira Buckland! The basic idea behind the pack is, if you're an aspiring roleplaying game designer using a certain MAKER of RPGS (shall we say) and you want to have your Heroes, NPCs and/or monsters partially voiced? Get these packs to help you out! They represent a great value for the amount of content that's inside them AND a part of the proceeds go to charity! So don't be a terrible person and buy it now! Here's some samples to help you make up your mind:

Next numberth of all (I lost count), the upcoming iOS game Take My Machete, featuring aliens and the rampant slaughter of said aliens, recently released a trailer for which I provided the voiceover! MAYHEM!

EVEN MORE NEXT NUMBERETH OF ALL, I recently voiced several characters in the audiobook version of koobismo's Marauder Shields, being a fancomic that attempts revise the fairly controversial ending to Mass Effect 3. You can hear me as Rick, Eli Wallace and fan-favourite character Mordin Solus! Take a listen and be sure to HOLD THE LINE! I don't know what that means, the videogame nerds who played Mass Effect just told me that saying that would make me look cool. I should go.

And last of all (but not least of all!), an animated sci-fi series I provide a voice for, Hacker Mind, is doing the Kickstarter rounds so be sure to drop in and pledge if you can! It also features Kira Buckland as one of the main characters! Wow, we sure are everywhere a lot.

So, any questions? There are? Well I'll just answer them right now oh look at the time my clothing is in the oven and my dog is on fire playing volleyball bye



Dust: An Elysian Tail, featuring many, many very talented and handsome/beautiful Newgrounds voice actors, is up for Best Independent Game at Spike TV's 10th Annual Video Game Awards! Vote for it. Vote for it HARD.

And in case you missed out on the whole hullaballo and want to know what Dust: An Elysian Tail is all about, here's the trailer for you. Is it not pretty?



New VG Cats AWNN, here for your edification! This one's adapted from #288 Kinder Surprise:

Also, there's a little promo for a game I'm in called Detective Grimoire: Secret of the Swamp! It's being developed by SFB Games (formerly known as The Super Flash Bros) and they're running a little Kickstarter campaign for the game. Support it if you can! You can also play a demo on their website - or if you want the ultimate in silly you can watch me play the game instead!

For those still interested, here are some more VG Cats adaptation/animated stuff that came out after the last episode!

The VG Cats Adaptation With No Name - The Lost Episode

Updated

Kept you waiting, huh?

Happy Australia Day (just made it)! This one was a long time coming (been sitting on the lines from my actors for pretty much over a year now). I'd been putting off mixing this due to going from a twenty-hour-per-week work schedule to a fullblown forty-hour-per-week-schedule. Suddenly I found myself without all the spare time to do all my nothing in. And thus I pushed the VG Cats Adaptation With No Name to the side while I adjusted to the work schedule and hoped to find some way to fit in the adaptation with the rest of all the nothing I had to do. As you can see, it didn't really work out quite so well.... But still, THIS episode is here now so.... Enjoy!

And once again, thanks to all my actors involved and thanks to D-Mac and Hnilmik for being random test viewers! And of course, a whole lot of thanks to Scott Ramsoomair for creating VG Cats! Please don't sue me.

Eternally Us Walkthrough

2010-05-02 05:30:12 by Omahdon

A freeware adventure game made with the Adventure Game Studio (AGS) engine by Chris Jones, this was an entry for April's Monthly AGS Competition ( http://www.mags-competition.info/ ) whose theme for that month was "One Room One Month". The rules are all in the theme's title, really . Showcasing it on here not only because I played some voices, but also because it's just really, really, REALLY purdy. And maybe just a bit melancholy. And a little sweet.

Honestly, it'd be better for all concerned if you played the game first rather than watch this video with its nasty artifacting and whatnots. So download the game here:

It's Christmas in January! Janua-mas! A totally real holiday that is not made up!

So yeah, this was originally supposed to be released simultaneously with the Christmas Special. For a variety of reasons (not least of which was my trip to Malaysia) it got pushed back and pushed back and pushed BACK some more - until we arrive at this point today where I finally got around to putting it together and releasing it proper. Truthfully? I'm actually kinda glad about the delay, cause it gave me a chance to throw "#278 - The Perfect Gift" into the mix - for which I would have had to make a seperate video if I'd released this on time. And that new video would have been called "The VG Cats Adaptation With No Name - Christmas Special Bonus Bonus". And that would have been just plain silly. Just plaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaain silly.

Anyway, many thanks to all my actors and actresses for participating in this little slice of fun - and thank YOU dear audience for watching The VG Cats Adaptation With No Name. Here's to you! Oh and of course, a whole lot of thanks to Scott Ramsoomair for creating VG Cats! Please don't sue me.

Thanks for the listen! And watchin'!



Nine strips in a single video: that's a new record for me. Admittedly they also happen to be, for the most part, extremely SHORT strips - but hey! I was looking for VG Cats strips with a Christmas-y sort of theme to adapt! Gotta work with what I gots and there weren't too many strips with that sort of theme. In fact, this Christmas Special has about all of them Christmas-y themed VG Cats strips, barring the unfinished series starring Jack Thompson as Scrooge (why I didn't throw it in this special, see "unfinished") and any that Scott may choose to write for Christmas 2009 onwards. Heck, I even threw in a re-make of "#133 - Presents" which I had already done previously. It's like.... all George-Lucas-ified. For your pleasure.

Apart from that, mixing for this special was mostly straightforward. I'm quite happy with the way "#83 - Road Rage" turned out; using the original Unsolved Mysteries theme was D-Mac's suggestion and it turned out really well. The mood and shifts of the music really meshes well the flow of the narration. Of course, D-Mac did the narration as well, so maybe that was all part of his CUNNING PLAN. Who knows?

"#182 - It's The Thought That Counts" had me trying to imitate the way Megaman 3 "power up get!" screen used to shift things around and reveal its text and what not - that probably took more time to set up than everything else in the strip. Oh, and for those of you wondering: Kirbopher was doing the classic Captain N version of Megaman's voice at my request. You know, the midget chain smoker version? That made absolutely no sense for the character, even back then? Good times, good times.

"#264 - Trigger Happy" was also quite interesting to do as it originally had no lines whatsover apart from "BOOMER!" and "Merry Christmas!" so it became adlib city for all the actors/actresses involved. We can get pretty silly. Especially that Edward Bosco fellow. Oh, what merriment we did make!

But the strip I'm most happy about in this special is "#265 - A Magical Wonderland". This was all thanks to the combined efforts of Cody Coleman, Druoxtheshredder and Peter Gresser: Cody for the wonderful Frank Sinatra-styled crooning, Druox for the "Death Metal" Frosty music and voice and Peter Gresser for basically composing a whole new truncated version of "Frosty the Snowman" out of cloth - trying to match the version that Scott used in his strip. The audio mixed together beautifully with hardly any effort at all, and the translation to video was pretty much equally seamless. I love it when everything comes together so.

Anyway, many, many, MANY (many) thanks to all my actors and actresses involved in bringing this special to life. Wow, there sure are a lot of you for this 'ere thang. Sixteen in total and that's not including the joke credits! Thank god I'm not making any more of these! Errrr.... I mean. APART from episode 12. Yes. That is exactly what I mean. Oh and of course, a whole lot of thanks to Scott Ramsoomair for creating VG Cats! Please don't sue me.
