At last, my old Sci-Fi Guys episodes shall be ported to the portal! The "Punch Bungi" game is just a little extra to pass time while waiting for the rest of the file to download. This episode was made in 2000, before broadband, back in the days when timewaster-preloader games were a necessity!

I've made around fifty Flash movies since then, but this... this is my very first one! Sci-Fi Guys. And ahh, the badly handled audio, with its terrible clicks and distorted, loud dialog. I tried to clean it up a little, but you should really see the timeline for it in Flash. It's a MESS. Holy crap, I had no clue at all back then. For one thing, I used about 20 different scenes (!!), using the Event setting on some sound symbols, making it very challenging to figure out which sounds needed action script to shut the fuck off between scenes, and which ones not to. I can't recommend just making one big scene for your movies, kids; you'll have a much easier time of things!

Since these episodes are here mostly for posterity, and since I was about to punch the screen in frustration after spending all morning trying to correct the billion problems this clunky piece of shit needs fixed, I've opted to instead lay bare my learning process, warts and all.

By the way, the "Virus Alert" banner down below links to my Weird Al game demo in a new window. Forgive the advertising; I'm trying to get the game in front of as many eyes as possible. It rocks... try it out!

Glad you're finally porting them over

I watched all the Sci-Fi guys a long time ago, but I'm very glad they will finally be on Newgrounds. I needed that.

And mattlore, you say it rehashes old jokes. Um, this was before RAB. These are the ORIGINAL jokes.

I'm sorry...But no.

It just seems to be the same, old, re-hashed jokes. Used over and over again to try and create some new and original series.
The sound wasn't very well put togather (You could hear the breaking inbetween each loop) and the animation looked VERY recycled.

Now don't get me wrong, I am a BIG fan of your work (Specifically RAB) but this...Just seems like you're trying to hard.

Maybe you'll get it next time.
