Sounds great, but its going to be either really good, or really bad. Hope they spend time on it!

Well they might be seeing the popularity Alien Hominid is getting and see a potential market. I mean, you guys are #10 on the front page of Gamespot.

Wow... i realy dont see the how JR fits onto consoles... it seems like such a stiff and linier adventure that it would be worth 20 bucks because if you beat it once that all folks...

but seeing that I don't know any specific detail on the game yet, i'll hold off my judgment on it for later when I see how its going to be on consoles.

Also, a quick note: "exclusive worldwide licensing rights" is exactly what it sounds like. No, not "some confusing copyright crap I dont need to know about", but it means that they are the only person who can use creativity, until the end of the deal. Think before you sign on: having your own console game is great, however, depending on the contract you may be stuck with your publisher/developer. If the person offering is asking you to remain quiet on details of your licensing contract, I would be more than a little suspicious. Actually read the contract, and if it's too confusing, HIRE A COPYRIGHT LAWYER. Do not believe anything that the person says about the contract, because he can easily lie or bend the truth. Copyright lawyers working for any major industry will probably be educated in the way that "copyright is good", that is, the more IP (term for copyrights, patents, and trademarks, stands for Intellectual Property) they gain, will produce more profit. Although you probably wont agree (I certainly dont) that copyright is good, there's a massive school of thought in all the law schools teaching them that the status quo of "hoard IP, get permission, extract maximum profit" which represents what copyright normally does.

Man, I should write an FAQ about this. Maby later.

u SHUD rite a FAQ for dis. it would help those dat don't know anything about legal stuff and contracts, cuz most ppl dont even know these kinda stuff. i bet most of those flashes dat says copyright 2004 or things like that doesn't even have a license that actually makes it copyrighted.

I think you misread the article - O~3 is the publisher for Alien Hominid, but they have no involvement in the Johnny Rocketfingers deal. The article just references AH as another Flash game coming to consoles.

I agree with the rest of your post, however. It's exciting to have people showing interest in Flash, but Flash authors need to be careful who they are dealing with. When Hollywood types come after a property, they WANT IT ALL and they want the creator to have NONE. It's their job to make that happen. :)


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

Yes! YES! Holy mother of fuck, YES!

Johnny Rocketfingers was a fucking awesome game. I never expected JR to move onto something bigger, though. This is quite a surprise!

that game was pretty fun but it was really really basic. just click on something on the screen until you got a _root.play() command. a full version would be better because they could get some people who know how to program to make it a lot longer than a few minutes. I would love to see Piconjo help make it, he is the ultimate in perverted stick figure movies.

Wow this is cool.

But the only problem is that we have no idea how it will look and we want to see if it might be crappy or not.

And it is NOT going to be accepted as a stickfigure game. So they need to switch that format.

Great! I just hope that the console version will take more skill. Because you have to admit, a point-and-click console game won't really be all that fun, that sort of games belongs on PC.
There should be some action elements, like fighting bad guys, etc.
Anyways, I'll be looking forward to this!


fucking magnets man how do they work

Thats what i said ebfore (thanks for answering)

Games that are choices or Choose your own adventure proably can't turn into a video game. But if you think about it, the game could be about all the wacky shit he gets into and u control him instead of Coice adventure thing. Like maybe he forgot his bar tab again :). Or if he is wanted by some gang. I really want to get it :D
