Pixel Puncher Demo, Store & Sakupen Mar. 12th, 2014 @ 11:48 AM Reply

Everybody wish MindChamber a happy birthday! Ya know what is a great birthday gift? Following someone's account on NG! So... Follow MindChamber!

To celebrate his birthday, MindChamber has released all his Pixel Puncher sprites to the public domain.

Pixel Puncher is a game MindChamber and I worked on years ago but never saw to completion. The sprites are now out in the wild for anyone who wants to play with them.

We're also releasing our unfinished demo of Pixel Puncher, but it's part of an experiment; it is only available to supporters.

Supporters: Check out this unfinished demo of Pixel Puncher!

Now this isn't reason alone to become a supporter and there's no guarantee we won't release it to the general public in a few months. For the moment it's just an additional way of saying "Thank You" to everyone who has become a supporter, as well as an experiment to see if our numbers jump up.

We've seen an uptick in supporters ever since moving it to a dedicated purchasing system with Paypal support. Besides being a huge help to the NG budget and allowing us to ultimately sponsor more content, it is also exciting to know that more people are browsing NG without ads, which makes the whole site way better.

If we could average ten supporters per day, it would be a huge boon to NG and there would be 300 more people each month who are enjoying NG the way it's supposed to be enjoyed, strengthening the core community as a result. It's exciting to think about!

In other news, we are opening the store for a single day on Thursday for everyone who had check-out problems during the final days of the store. There isn't a lot left but we have tons of Tankmen and Penicorns if you want one of those.

Also coming soon, a new game by Sakupen! You may remember him from these:

You should follow him too so you get notified the moment he publishes!

In fact, let's try something... Sakupen has 8,120 Fans at the moment. How about he gets the go-ahead to publish when he reaches 8,500 fans?

I should have consulted him on that ahead of time so this might blow up in my face, but hopefully not.

If you missed it, check out the Best of February.


This is the game JohnnyUtah and I have been working on.

Woot PixelPuncher!

Yay Store!

O HAI Sakupen!

Going to follow him now. Partly because I want Tom to succeed with the fan number, but mainly for Titanomachina and his upcoming projects.

Can't wait to see you dump the sprites and demo files for the game you're working on now with JohnnyUtah! That'll probably happen in 2019, right?

How much do you guys make off of Supporter Upgrades per user compared to Ad Rev? There's probably a whole lot of math involved, and it's probably a whole lot more, but give a guesstimate?


It's the only way out!

ARPU is low as hell for just ads. For flash ads we get like a tenth of a penny per view, so NG can't be doing too much better than that. If you somehow view over 10k ads in a year, then you might be doing more than the supporter upgrade.

Happy Birthday Mindchamber.

Also hurray for the store re-opening. Not really sure if I'll be buying anything though, but best of luck to those who are.

I pretty much got everything I wanted already, and got to go easy on the spending now.

That probably came off in more of a "This bad thing will happen" asshole vibe than I meant for. I'm sure it'll be out and will be great!

Nice. How about a list of Exclusives right by Secrets?

In fact, let's try something... Sakupen has 8,120 Fans at the moment. How about he gets the go-ahead to publish when he reaches 8,500 fans?

I'd follow but... I'm already following. :/ MC too.

Thanks Tom. Now I think it's about time my over-inflated contemplation (about NG's sad, but memorable store closing) starts and finishes a 2D/3D toon with a few favs. thrown in (2 days mabs).

Loving the Sonic remix in the trailer for PixelPuncher, works really well in that genré.

We do plan to do that as we add more stuff. At the least, I plan to release the unfinished Pico 2 for supporters on Pico Day... Not joking around this time!

The Demo looks promising. It's really a shame you guys never finished it.
The problem back in 2009 was exporting, right? Can't that somehow be overturned now?

Happy birthday to MindChamber

What a cool perk for supporters. I really should do that but now i've spent enough at the NG store my spousal unit is not happy. I'm wearing my brand spanking new RAB t-shirt and it's quite a handsome shirt.
