A remake of Afro-Ninja`s classic Newgrounds SIM! Play the original: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/236362

This originally was an idea I had last fall, got busy though. Now about sometime last month I decided to begin working on this. I did a majority of the work all in April.

The game is not finished by any means, I hope to update this as often as I can. I`ll probably work on this on and off for the next few months, I want to make this it`s own thing. I'm open sourcing the code, so anyone who either wants to see the messy insides can see. ORRR if you're feeling cool... you can contribute!

If you want to submit bug reports, suggestions, etc, you can do so by either: Posting an "issue" on the github page, PM me, or add it into your review!

Planned features:
-More Medals
-Special events such as Robot Day, Pixel Day, and Pico Day
-More stuff but I`m too lazy to write at the moment

Check out the source code: https://git.io/v9UH3
Github Issues page: https://github.com/ninjamuffin99/Newgrounds-Sim-2017/issues
And maybe I`ll post some updates and sneak peaks on my Twitter: https://twitter.com/ninja_muffin99

Current Version: 0.1.9 (September 15)
Update notes can be found on the Github releases page: https://github.com/ninjamuffin99/Newgrounds-Sim-2017/releases


Not a bad remake of the one by Afro-Ninja, indeed, but I'll like to suggest 2 improvements:

-There's some difficulty in trying to exit out of Google Chrome after posting on the BBS or Blaming/Protecting.

-Shrink the game screen resolution so that it doesn't overlap.

Anyway, it's not bad for a remake, and continue to keep up the work in the future! :)

ayy thanks dude. One day I'll definitely overhaul this whole game, probably with a new resolution lol

It is nice, not as faithful of a remake I was expecting. Just think the features from the original return (other than the new posting system, that is way better than the original) such as amazon, intelligence, and coolpoints.

So is this a dead game or what?

I've been really busy with a lot of other projects. I don't want to say it's dead, but at this point I might just remake it from scratch instead of update this one. When I was making it I took a lot of shortcuts that just make it really hard to work with the code now. But I DO plan on revisiting this is some way or another. Could be updates or could be a new game.

I definitely appreciate the effort, but there's quite a few issues. Some things behind the scenes, but I feel the biggest problem is the graphics and general lack of animation. Then there's the BBS posts which overcomplicate the animation a bit.

Part of the appeal of NG Sim was the simplicity of it while keeping the graphical environment realistic enough and pleasant.

This isn't a flash game, I don't think. So I don't know how much flexibility you have. I would probably recommend designing the graphics a bit more realistic.

I once made a Windows 98 environment in Flash, all done by hand. There's definitely an ability to create visually appealing graphics that would be suitable for this game.

The art definitely needs an overhaul. Thanks for the review!

Faking needing help, not good.
