Well, some time fairly late in the development cycle we decided it'd add something to the game if it had some pounding, high-tempo music to accompany the endless destruction of devious robot enemies. It turned into one of the fastest music projects I've ever done. Some 40 tiny loop-tracks were made for the original game but I had a lot of fun with them and felt I'd like to do a more listenable work-up of some of them, and that's how this OST game about.
Fourteen of the most memorable themes from the game have been juiced up into nearly a seamless hour of pulsating techno frenzy. You can hear the whole lot for free over on my Bandcamp page and here's a preview of one of the tracks:
Nearly a year in production (well okay, mainly in procrastination) my third H.P.Lovecraft-themed album is finally ready. This time it's all based around one particularly monumental Lovecraft tale. One that's inspired me into a variety of creativity over the years. The frozen epic "At the Mountains of Madness".
You can see s small gallery of AtMoM-inspired pictures by me here in on my DeviantArt pages.
The album goes on sale 14th February 2012 and should initially be available on my Bandcamp Store and at CDBaby. I'll update with more links once it's actually there. The album should also also be appearing on iTunes, Amazon, Rhapsody, Spotify etc but that might not be happening until a little while after the initial release.
Here's a little preview. This is a very abridged version of the track "Thaw" made specially for Yog-Sothoth.com's latest thrilling audiogame based on the famous Chaosium Call of Cthulhu campaign "Beyond the Mountains of Madness.
Mixing up My Little Pony!
Well I got the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic bug pretty badly. It was inevitable I guess and, TBH, it's a 20% more awesome bug than most anyway. So, thanks Fuzzy!
After a flood of pony-related art on my DA profile, including some animation I decided I had no choice but to go all the way and make a remix of one of Pinkie's hilarious songs, and a video to go with it.
And here it is!
Hmm... then later somepony suggested doing another one straight away. Since this was clearly a completely crack-pot idea, I started work immediately. And here it is! In all likelihood, there are more to follow.
Then I got rather wrapped up in the whole concept and had to make a metric-pony-ton of Luna-related stuff. Much of it you can find on my DeviantArt Profile. I got a bit more carried away than just doodling pictures of Luna though. The result turned out to be an original bit of music and an all-original video full of various little scraps of animation I made about Luna/Nightmare Moon and the whole mare-in-the-moon thing. You can see the video over there on the right (and on my YouTube Channel) and if you fancy a copy of the tune, you can find the TinDeck link below:
Race for Best DeviantArt Pony!
So, I got to wondering how many faves and deviations of each pony I had in my account and an idea struck me...
Why not make a web pony-race game where the winner is the based on the numbers of each pony in the player's DeviantArt account?
All you need to do is tell it your DA page address and it'll race the Mane 6 plus the alicorns, Trixie and Derpy and show you who your real Best Pony is :-)
Give it a try!: Ultimate "Best Pony" Challenge!
(Oh, needless to say but obviously if you don't have any ponies in your account, it's not going to work ;-) )
Over 150 Characters from all three Stargate shows in teeny-tiny pixel form (around 29x9px for most).
Stargate Universe is coming to an end this week, marking the conclusion of 14 years of gate-related scifi on the TV. Wow. I figured I had to do something to commemorate it all. So I went through every episode of SG-1, Atlantis and Universe and drew pixel versions of all the characters that leapt out at me. Took about 2 weeks.
Must credit the excellent John Martz for giving me the idea!
How big of a Stargate fan are you? Can you work out who/what they all are? A few don't have names as such, but just a species, or an episode title. There's a kind of vague chronological order to each line, but it's not very consistent as sometimes I didn't draw a character based on their first appearance but on their main costume. You can click the main pixel characters image up there for a list of who they all are.
You can buy designs themed for Fantasy RPG, Horror, Sci-fi, Superheroes, Zombies and more, all based on my original pixel characters, on a range of clothing over at the Pixelpony Productions CafePress store.Buy Pixel-Wear!
There are also free wallpapers featuring these characters:
