New Ideas

I've come up with 2 new ideas for interactive flash applications...ok, well one is actually a game, and the other is inspired by Disney's Monsters Inc Laugh Floor. If you don't know what I'm talking about you can find a few videos of it on Youtube.

...or Just click this link Laugh Floor

Anyway, the game I've decided upon is really a blast from the past. I'm a very nostalgic person so I would like to create a game in a style that is reminiscent of my childhood. So I'm going with a DoubleDragon style side scrolling game. Awesome?...I think so too. Although I have the Idea, I just don't have a storyline or any idea of the setting or look of the characters, so at the moment it is really just an idea, but soon I will have ideas and whatnot down on paper, and this project should be complete by Mid-May.

The project inspired by Disney's Monsters Inc Laugh Floor (Located in Tomorrowland of the Magic Kingdom, VERY COOL!) will be just that...accept in Flash. I will create a variety of characters that will be controlled by the user, as well as in-depth controls of facial and body language, I've never coded a way for flash to detect a microphone/recording device though, which may prove challenging for me. Either way, for the time being, this is going to be a personal, non-profit project, as I don't feel like getting into any legal trouble with Disney.

If you are good at drawing old pixel-styled characters in photoshop and want to contribute to any of the projects, send me a message, because I'm not an artist at all. Thanks for reading!

Well, for starters I've had an NG account since 2004, and I'm not quite fond of the username for that account, so I created this new one recently to start my submissions. I've been a fan of NG for a long time and this is one of the big reasons I chose to be an Interactive Media major in College. I've done plenty of Flashwork, and honestly I'm a big critic when it comes to submitting (mine AND others) work to NG, and my "Grossinator" program is the first thing I've made that I believe deserves to be on here, a lot of effort went into that and it was by far one of the more complex things I've coded in AS 3.0, I originally wanted to allow a user to click the buttons with the mouse as well, but I still have much to learn about AS 3.0. Granted it is only entertaining for a short period of time, you can say some hilarious things with it, and make your friends laugh. I plan to start submitting more work in the future. Until then!
