Henry Stickmin Collection Update

2017-06-19 13:33:41 by PuffballsUnited

Alright I figured it's time for an update. I've been working hard on remastering the old Henry games. I should clarify, remastering means I'm redoing all the bacgkrounds (not sure about FtC) as well as updating all the SFX. I'm not gonna be messing around with animation really. If you're not sure what I'm talking about you can read the previous news post here!


Anyways I wanted to show some progress!




The aspect ratio is being updated to a modern widescreen. This is most noticeable in the older games.




I realized that nighttime looks different than daytime. Also if you follow me on twitter you would've already seen this one ;)




Now the museum looks more like a museum, and less like a parking garage.




I didn't think ItA was gonna need that much work but I was wrong. The airship is gonna have a bit more style on the inside now.



Alright I'll throw in a bonus too! I don't wanna give away everything but I'm pretty proud how a lot of these are turning out.


As of now I've finished Breaking the bank and the backgrounds for EtP and StD. Currently working through ItA. Not sure if FtC will be faster or not because I'm not sure how little I can get away with doing for the backgrounds. I know the colors need to be touched up but maybe that's it? We'll see when I get there. 


Well that's it from me for now. I post on twitter way more than here so follow me there if you want more frequent updates! And thanks for sticking around throughout the whole series. I really do appreciate it.

Oh man, I cannot wait for this!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Hopefully it will be worth the weight.

Looks awesome, and I'm glad you're updating us on this. Can't wait!

PuffballsUnited responds:

I'm glad you're following!

This looks even better than expected! I think the most striking comparison was ItA. I figured that was late enough in the series, that your art was probably already substantially improved. But holy crap, that is a big step up!! It has so much style now, it actually looks like an Airship!

I love the new use of colours! It wasn't apparent how overused greys were until the new versions were made so much more lively.

I need to wrap up my LPs soon (this is Graeme Games / 2 Left Thumbs), so I have a bit of down time before totally revisiting the series :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

I thought the exact same thing about ItA. That's why I'm worried FtC might need more but we'll seee. I feel like I've just gotten started on using colors! haha

Oh did you change your name? I thought I recognized your name.

Looks awesome is this going to be released on Newgrounds or Steam?

PuffballsUnited responds:

It'll be on steam. It makes me pretty sad but I don't think I'll be able to put it on NG.

The updated photos looks amazing, I'm so excited for this collection!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Me too!


2017-06-19 16:45:13

holy shit! you really improved. keep up the good work. love it.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks! It's pretty nice to be able to see improvement with a comparison!


2017-06-19 17:28:46

See, it's funny.
When I first ever saw your games, I already thought the backgrounds were good looking, but looking at the new versions, the old ones look like crap! (no disrespects of course.) It really shows how much you have improved.

I am really excited to see it all come together and will always follow and support your work!
Keep it up, and good luck with your future projects!

PuffballsUnited responds:

yeah I see what you mean. I thought they were pretty good at first too but def not now. so yeah no offense taken haha.
I'm excited as well! Thanks for sticking around!

Love the revisions! but how are you going to get this on steam without the greenlight program?

PuffballsUnited responds:

They have something to replace greenlight I'm pretty sure.

PuffballsUnited responds:

You'll just have to hold on a biiiiiit.


2017-06-21 15:24:05

Wanted to ask can we also get a Steam version of the remasterd game? or its only for browser

PuffballsUnited responds:

It's the opposite, only for steam.


2017-06-21 15:36:37

No name change, I have just had my Newgrounds account much longer than I have been doing LPs on YouTube. I ended up keeping the 2 with separate names, since they don't really relate to one another in terms of content.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Ah that makes sense.


2017-06-24 14:36:33

Will you remake Crossing The Pit on Henry Stickmin Collection?


2017-06-24 17:18:18

oh, boy! The reworking is astounding! The exterior of the museum especially! I've played the games since a little before ItA, and have been a loyal fan since. I wasn't planning on having a steam account, but now I have to have one! I can't miss out on Henry's greatest adventure! Thank you for making all of this stuff. It's an honor to play it.
