You did a wonderful job with this animation. I really hope you can understand this review because it's important for you to know that you made my day.
I'm glad that you didn't try to rehash Step 1, which was a masterpiece in manic unrequited romance. While infused with a similar energy, Step 2 feels breezier, even more romantic. I get the feeling...God, I feel ridiculous for saying this...Obviously, the bunny didn't care that the cake was ruined. I think I knew all along that she wouldn't have cared (although the other guests would have). But the fact that the cat put himself through so much to make sure the cake was as perfect as can be...you bring an incredibly breezy touch to this story.
You deserve a long, LONG vacation. Way to go.
So let me get this straight...
You go out and create a movie that, while graphics intensive, runs without trouble on my computer (I can't run most Madness movies without any slowdown). You make it so that the action is so friggin intense and fast paced...this is, literally, nothing like anything on Newgrounds that we've seen. The closest we've got is the Xombie series, and while you're not better than James Farr, you're certainly just as good.
I'm sorry, my writing is a bit scatterbrained. I'm just...excuse me while I recover...
Anyway, I was saying...the action is the most intense and fast-paced we've ever seen from any animation on Newgrounds. We're talking Jerry Bruckheimer quality (or if you don't like Jerry Bruckheimer or don't know who he is, let's just say that it's OUTSTANDING quality). Your main character, you don't tell us a damn thing about her. She doesn't speak, she doesn't really do anything, except we still want to know more about her. (Could hormones be to blame? Certainly, but the way she moves, and runs, and reacts to her surroundings, she's very intriguing.)
In short, you've created one of the best animations Newgrounds has ever seen - your series only has one half-episode, and it could compete on the level of Xombie.
And you're scrapping it. Why? Because it's too hard--no. Because you say you can do BETTER!
Sweet Zombie Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick, if you can do better, in FLASH for fuck's sake, then WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING HERE?
I wanna see more episodes, but man, I've only said this to the aformentioned James Farr* - you deserve better.
And on a final note, I wish I had your skill for developing action scenes. Just...bravo, man. Bra-fucking-vo.
*I don't compare you two in terms of style at all - just talent.
Those are some very kind words :) Thanks a lot, man.
Way to go, guys!
Five all the way on the 5 scale...on the 10 scale, I knocked a point off because I felt it was just a touch too long. But I laughed my ass off, guys. I, too, look foward to Decline 3.
BTW, too late to change it now, I guess, but the song that played during the opening credits is called "From Rusholme With Love," and it's performed by Mint Royale. Just FYI.
The first tutorial I've seen...
...that makes me feel like I can actually draw well. You've made drawing anime characters...well, the challenge of it got through all right, but previous tutorials kind of lost me because it still seemed complicated. But this tutorial actually makes me want to buy Adobe Creative Suite right now so I can get to work.
I knocked off a couple of points for sound because I wasn't terribly fond of the music you played in the credits, but that's relatively negligible. Other than that...Thank you. THANK YOU. A million times, thank you!
P.S. - Your Metroid thing looks pretty groovy.
You know something...
I like furries.
Okay, I said it. I like furries and while I think that it is a bit fucked up that the idea of Manimal screwing the shit out of other women turns me on, that's how it is. While I would never want a woman in real life who's part cat or pretends to be part cat, looking at pictures of furry cartoon sex can be hot sometimes.
Unless it's rape. It's just more fun if everybody's into it. :)
So obviously, people who hate furries will not like this. Being that I'm essentially informing the public as to the goodness of this game, I'll just say: ATTENTION FURRY HATERS! YOU WILL HATE THIS GAME SO DON'T BOTHER PLAYING! STAY OUT OF OUR FUCKING FETISH!
If you left out the fact that the characters in your world are running around having sex all-willy-nilly, I find that you're still building a world which is piquing my interest, even if I don't quite understand it all. (I've read the introduction twice, but the best idea I can get of where this world is is in this other universe, where people who have passed from THIS universe reside...did I get that right?) I'm interested in learning more about your characters, and even reading stories involvling these characters in the world you've made, erotic or otherwise. Knowing that you're expanding on this world makes me wish next Monday was coming tomorrow. You've created a wonderful world. The fact that your characters are running around having sex all-willy-nilly is an added bonus.
The game mechanics are VERY challenging, but it's a fun game, and you end up wanting to do better instead of just x-ing out in disgust. (Nice touch making the preloader game a training ground for the real thing.) I personally wish there was more of a reward than seeing somebody naked and being able to jiggle their tits, but that's me, and I'm sure there's a very fine line between what you're doing and being just plain sick.
And here's something others may have missed - you've included plenty of material for female/gay furry lovers! That's a serious oversight in most porno games that appear, and the fact that you brought that to your attention is brilliant.
And I LOVE how the game will automatically save your progress. Great touch.
So you know what, furry hate aside, be proud of yourself. Even if I hated furries, I hope I wouldn't be such an asshole that I would completely ignore how CLEAR it is that you busted your ass on this game. (I probably would, unfortunately, but that's beside the point.)
Here's how I would improve the game: I'm sure you've got plenty of other things you want to work on, like completing the rest of the character biographies. But if you find the time, reuse some of your characters during the actual gameplay by using different poses, placing them in different situations. I would keep getting one girl in the same pose. I would think, "She's nice, but let's make her look different...different clothes, a different position." I think that would really improve the replay value of this game.
One last thing. I don't have any clear ideas for characters I want to submit yet, but I would like to see women who are, well, softer. Less muscle definition (some of your girls are ripped like men), smaller breasts (Jesus Tapdancin' Christ, I don't care if it's a cow thing or not, somebody milk Milky, but quick!)...more feminine, really. You've got a pretty good share of agressive females, and you shouldn't change them for anything, but you should balance it out a bit more.
Or maybe I don't truly understand the way of the furry. Whatever, that's my opinion. :P
OK, I'm done, finally. Again, I really hope this finds a supportive fanbase. I'd love to see more material in the extras section. Good luck!
P.S. - I know you said you were updating the game every Monday, but does that go with the "extras" webpage as well? And are you going to add more of your art to it?
i update both every week. yeah, the characters are strong, but that's healthy. i think women deserve porn just as much as the guys. but i guess porno companies don't think about it. It's interesting how people either love or hate this game. it's all a matter of a point of view. yeah, i programmed this like a madman. it really shows.
hey, if you are an adult go ahead and order up a commission by e-mail. don't be bashful when you describe the character, all the details are important.
This is a great dress up. I've been keeping my eye on the Portal for the full version and I've yet to see it. I mean, normally I'd be paitent but it's almost the end of March. Have you given up on this game?
