May Two Four

These games are made by students of the University of Washington, and I'm sure more from their classmates are on their way. Please leave comments to help them debug and improve.

I've been busy with clients so updates are scarce, but TOFA 2016 is just around the corner.

This isn't one of the U of W submissions, but it's not from 2004 either.

Death and taxes

Surn's latest version of Dungeon of Existential Surprise is basically a brand new game compared to even two versions ago. I keep the classic version still up.

The Ultimate Showdown 2

So in 2016, over 10 years later, we have a sequel to The Ultimate Showdown (of Ultimate Destiny). This is the exclusive World Wide Web premiere of The Ultimate Showdown 2 (the Second Time Around)!

Firstly, the music is a a little more updated. Sounds less synthesized, but is otherwise the same notes, the same melody.

Now here's what's better. The first Ultimate Showdown was meant to portray an epic battle between a plethora of good guy and bad guy characters, but it only contained about a few dozen characters.

There are over 100 characters individually mentioned in The Ultimate Showdown 2. This doesn't even include all 151 original Pokemon (as a collective) that all take place in this second showdown battle. None of the characters from the first one return because they all died in the first one. Except the kid that holds ice cream. He's back, but 10 years older this time. Just like the fans of the first animation are!

Some of the lyrics are just so catchy.

"Uncle Joey and Uncle Jesse, Oh my God, they killed Kenny."

"George Washington, Donkey Kong, every single Pokemon."

The Ultimate Showdown 2 is smartly written to follow the theme of the first one. Even at the end there's only one character left. Him being another friendly public access persona, and the happy little trees that appear work as forshadowing.

And because this was a big production, it took more than one animator. Credit to these animator friends on Twitter:

Hopefully this goes viral and we can make the third one: The Ultimate Showdown 3 (The Ultimate Trilogy).

It's a Secret

This is my favourite thing right now.

A good storyteller is hard to find. Check this out.

A new Nuclear Bubble Wrap video, and a great team effort for the animators.

The director doesn't know it, but this was based on a true story that happened to me, and I might discuss it in the future.


I'll see about getting this as a downloadable MP3.

In the meantime, here are some of my favourite chiptunes. Each page links to a free MP3, so take them with you today.

So jackbliss tells me he got funding from Disney XD to create this pilot episode. If you don't know who jackbliss is, according to ABS Forums, he is a terrible animator who will never get funding for anything he is doing.
