Tic Tac Torture is a rude and insulting Tic Tac Toe 1 player game. When I finished animating every possibility and move, I realized how much work really goes into designing such a simple game. My hat tips to you action script folks! So I used Computer Sam's voice and recorded him saying rude remarks whether you win or loose. I figure, if I went to so much trouble doing all this, I might as well make 30 interesting responses to listen to after each completed match.
-A Little History
My name is Frank Stringini, I am an animator. My biggest gaming influences are Don Bluth, Treasure, and Humongous Entertainment.
I have been playing with animation since the 1980's back when it was done in DOS, on a 386 PC, No Layers, and 1 undo. I have always been interested in games and fancy myself more of a game designer, but have focused my craft on the art side. I use flash to prototype my game ideas like an animatic, I playfully call it a "Protomatic."
-Action Script notes
StringAnime is a special brand of flash game design that uses animation to drive the strings of code.
I animate literally every possibility for in game action, and use a simple (goto) action-script to jump around the movie, much like Don Bluth's Arcade classic Dragon's lair. Typically, in a game, strings of code are used to display images with smooth transitions, this is quite the opposite with StringAnime. This produces a more animated feel to games while sacrificing smooth transitioning gameplay. The term StringAnime was created and named after the inventor Frank Stringini.
