Hey guys, I’ve started work on a possible William and Sly 3. Follow me on facebook for updates!


It feels good to be finally submitting this. I hope you all have fun! Merry Xmas. :3


The game should save automatically, but opening the map will do a manual write to the HD. This might cause a moment of lag on some computers. So, DON'T PANIC! lol

If you want to make sure your game saves, open the map before you quit. It should be fine even if you don't, but a tester had an issue so I threw a flush statement in as a failsafe. :3

A most perfect late Xmas present

I can't even describe what I felt when I realized the new game is here, because I wasn't following your blog, and had no idea when will it come out.
That being said... this game is probably one of the best flashes on the whole Internet.

I must say, I was slightly disappointed at first when I realized the art style changed, but it took me a short time to realize you've done it so bloody perfect I fell in love with it. The quality of animation is unbelievable.

Now for the game itself - the addition of a few actual missions apart from collecting things is a pleasant surprise, and the Shrines are a great addition to the atmosphere and the world of William and Sly, as well as the pixies.
The journal updates are a nice way to keep the story unfolding in a very non intrusive and passive manner.

The music is as gorgeous and as fitting as it was in the first installment.

And the most amusing thing is, what I noticed many other people enjoying too - simply making Sly run and hop around, because watching him do so is pretty enjoyable, especially with animation like yours.

For the end, I guess this game has a flaw or two - the main one for me would be the fact the map is much shorter than from the first game, or at least it appears so. I practically memorized it, while I still easily get lost in the first installment.
But I guess it would take you much longer to keep working on a bigger map, and we all eagerly waited for this game to be available, so we'll simply forget about that and enjoy what we have.

Thank you for this wonderful addition to the Newgrounds, hopefully you make another one of this exploration platformers we've all been enjoying so much. :)

When I was working on the map I was wondering how big to make it. It's actually about the same as the first one, in terms of surface area. The first one was about 2.5 screens wide, but it only had a single path through it. This one is kind of like 2 - 3 paths layered on top of each other. That makes it easier to backtrack, I think.

Maybe the next one will be more distance based, though. :3
