PuffballsUnited's News

Posted by PuffballsUnited - May 22nd, 2018


That's right! The last game in the Henry Stickmin series is called Completing the Mission! In case you're not aware, I've been working on the Henry Stickmin Collection, a collection of remastered games, including a final episode. If you want more information you can peruse some previous news posts. Well, It's high time I give you guys an update on progress!

 

to be honest, I'm behind :(

 

but to make up for it here's a screenshot!!

2240474_152703399871_failscreen.png

You might've seen this if you went hunting for the leak when I tweeted about it, but now the fail's outta the bag! (I know the map button is not ready yet but pls use your imagination). 

 

So yeah, progress has unfortunately been slow. I haven't been able to put in as much time as I'd like but I'm figuring it out. As for what this does to the release date... I don't really know yet. Once I get into a really good rhythm it'll be easier for me to judge it. To give you some numbers, I'm 21 fails in, so already farther than an Escaping the Prison. I don't have an official planned total amount of fails yet. Some of them haven't even been written!

What's that? You want MORE information? Alright, alright here you go. Completing the Mission is planned to be AROUND 3 times bigger than Fleeing the Complex. That's a lot of paths! Yep, that's what happens when every ending is canon! Also, don't worry, a lot of your favorite characters will definitely be making a return. This includes Ellie, and Charles, as well as many others! I don't wanna give away too much though, there's still a long time to wait until it comes out. Gotta pace myself with the information i reveal.

 

Let's see if I can dig up something else cool to show. Ah here we go, have some of these.

And here, watch this thing too. It doesn't loop well, but it's fun to compare! :) If you listen carefully (mayube with headphones) you can hear I updated all the sounds and added ambience. This has been done to every game.

It's time for a New Years update!

2017 for me was spent remastering all the old Henry games, to be put into the Henry Stickmin Collection. The remastering is basically done (There's still some polish needed but all the heavy lifting is done). I've begun work on the final Henry Stickmin game, which should be 3 times bigger than Fleeing the Complex:

To clarify, the remasters and the new game will all be part of the collection.

The most common questions I've gotten are, when is it going to be released and how much will it cost?

Those are pretty hard to answer. I can't really give solid answers to either. I've tried to to a time estimate on how long it will take and that puts me at an OPTIMISTIC 1.5 years from now. Sorry.

As for price, it's hard to say until it's done. I want the price to be something that feels worth it. I'd be interested in hearing what you guys would think is a fair price.

 

Well that's all I got. Looking forward to making 2018 awesome!

It's time for another update! If you're not aware I'm working on remastering the old Henry games, as well as making one final game in the series. It's planned to be released on Steam. You can get more details here. In terms of progress, I've made it all the way to Fleeing the Complex now. FtC is much faster to remaster cuz it doesn't need as much work. This means I should be able to start the new game soon, which makes me really excited! Now I wanna show some more side-by-side comparisons cuz I think they're fun! :D

 

2240474_150757620873_recordsold.png

2240474_150757625121_records.pngSome rooms in ItA got complete redesigns. This is one of the bigger ones.

2240474_150757635332_Screenshot-8_14_20179_57_50PM.pngApparently safety was no concern to the Toppat Clan back in the day.

2240474_150757644953_Screenshot-10_9_201711_58_38AM.pngDid you know? Snow is infact not gray. Also the background has paralax now but you can't see that in a still picture. Also you get to see the new skip button design.

2240474_150757652822_Screenshot-9_19_20175_58_19PM.pngIt's amazing what a bit of color will do.

2240474_150757657752_Screenshot-10_9_201711_36_32AM.pngEven though it's the newest one, some of the backgrounds might still get a slight touch up.

 

And here's a bonus image from Infiltrating the Airship. It's the sketch layer of one of the redesigned rooms, maybe you can guess which one?

2240474_150757667771_Screenshot-8_16_201711_41_19AM.png

 

As usual, some of these images have already been posted on Twitter so if you follow me there you would've seen them earlier!

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!

 

2240474_149789338581_teleold.png

2240474_149789335873_Telenew.png

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

 

2240474_149789341872_museum.gif

2240474_149789343741_StD_Intro2.gif

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

 

2240474_149789345943_StD.png

2240474_149789347923_interior.png

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

 

2240474_149789351271_airshipold.png

2240474_149789352881_airshipnew.png

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.

 

2240474_149789355482_WW2one.png2240474_149789359612_WW2two.png

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.

It's a new year and I'm getting into the swing of things! I've started working on the 6th Henry game! I've been holding off on saying too much about it because it's still in the early process but I don't wanna keep you guys too much in the dark. Here's the general plan, but keep in mind that things could definitely change!

 

This may be sad to hear, but the 6th game is planned to be the last one in the series. I want to do something big to really wrap it all up. I want to put all the games in one place so they make a complete experience. I want to make the Henry Stickmin Collection, and I want to put it on steam!

 

The Henry Stickmin Collection will include all the older games, as well as the finale and maybe some secrets ;)

 

Breaking the Bank will be completely remade from scratch. It was too old and far back to salvage. Actually this step is already complete :E

 

The other games will not get completely remade. Instead I'll only touch up the backgrounds and other art assets, as well as improve the audio quality. I don't want to have to reanimate anything from those games but I may touch up a few things that bug me. This may feel very George Lucas but I feel like it's something I should do to make the collection feel more solid, since it kinda spans almost 10 years of work.

 

The 6th Henry game is gonna be the finale of the entire series, as such it's planned to be pretty big. So far it's looking to be 3 times bigger than Fleeing the Complex! It's still in the planning stages but I've got a lot of it written down. I won't start working on the finale until the previous games have been updated. The Henry Collection will probably take a really long time to complete.

 

Unfortunately this means the 6th Henry game, won't be available on Newgrounds or any of the online game sites. The file would become too big and unstable to work in. It does make me kinda sad because releasing on NG has always been one of my favorite parts of making the games. I want to thank everyone that has enjoyed the games and has supported me over the years! It means a lot to me :)

 

Also, keep in mind that I am not very far along so a lot of things could change. I just wanted to keep you guys in the loop a bit.

 

Now what does this mean for Deitied? (Deitied is the other game I've been working on with Forte). We have decided to put it on hiatus for a while. It has been pretty difficult for us to play test it since we live 4 hours away from each other. We found that it became difficult for us to nail down a direction for the game when we can only play against each other once every quarter. I am planning on moving at some point this year and we will end up living a lot closer together. Once this happens we will resume work on Deitied. For now I will be working full time on the Henry Collection. Once we pick back up on Deitied that doesn't mean I fully stop working on Henry but the workload will slow down until Deitied finishes.

 

Well that's it!

So I've been working on this game called Deitied for a while now. Been making it with my friend Forte. The games coming along quite nicely and I'm super excited for people to play it! It's undergone a lot of changes throughout it's lifetime and is already looking way different than in the trailer. I want to link to the greenlight, but at the same time, so many of the images are already outdated/updated in the current build. We wanted to have the game done by the end of the year, but it's becoming apparent that is definitely not going to happen. We'll continue to chug along on it.

2240474_147985593382_greenlight1.png

Now to answer a question that I keep getting about the Henry Series. WHEN IS THE 6TH HENRY COMING? IS THERE BE ONE? 

Yep.

I've started planning the 6th Henry game. I don't wanna say too much becuase it's in the very early stages still, but, if plans go according to.. plan, this will be a huge game. I'll announce more as it comes along. It is probably going to take at least more than a year, maybe 2(?) to finish so don't hold your breath.

 

So the plan is for me to work on Henry when there is a lull on work for Deitied. Deitied SHOULD come out before Henry. 

 

So that's it from me! As usual, I'm pretty active on Twitter so follow me there for news! I'm gonna make an effort to post images of what I've been working on as frequently as possible!

So in February I decided to do the February Album Writing Month challenge! I decided to only do 7 instead of 14 because I've never attempted anything like this before. Well, February is over and I made the 7 songs! They're now up here on NG as well!

So why not go on an Adventure and take a journey through the songs! I hope you guys like em! :)

This one was pretty inspired by games like Banjo-Kazooie and it's composer Grant Kirkhope.

 

 

The brass in the middle of this song is inspired by a portion of Cid's Theme from FFVII

 

 

Felt like making a song with a harpsichord and this is what happened heh.

 

This is my favorite one. There's two parts, the first is outdoor and then it moves indoor. I really like the duo strings at the end.

 

This ons is also my favorite. This is the first song I wrote and I'm quite proud of it. I really like the end when the brass comes in and you can just imagine cresting a sand hill and seeing an entire empire.

 

This one went through about 3 versions. I tried one with some horns and ended up liking it a lot. It used to be way more electronic. 

 

It took me a while to come up with the last song. I was initially trying to come up with a space song when I accidentally made this instead. Watch out in the middle, you might get transported into a Gameboy Realm for a  sec.

 

 

I hope you guys like the album! Let me know what you think! :D

I'm gonna try and participate in February Album Writing Month! Basically, the challenge is to write 14 songs in the month of February. I'm.. Gonna shoot for 7 cuz I dunno how much time I'll actually have, and I've never written even that many songs in a short timespan.

The songs will be coming out on here and I also got a soundcloud for just such an occasion.

https://soundcloud.com/puffballsunited

Anyways, I've written the first song!

Let me know what you think! I'm really proud of this one!

First off I want to thank everyone for the awesome reception of Fleeing the Complex! I never expected it to get so many views so quickly! So again, thank you all for your support and likes over the years.

Now, onto what a lot of you are probably wondering. WHEN IS NEXT HENRY GMAE IS MAKED? Well... I don't like to commit one way or the other. If I do make another one, it wont be for a few years again (sorry). I need to let the ideas build up. Plus I want to focus on [topic in next paragraph].

In the more near future, I plan on making games for/with Innersloth, the group that @fortebass and I started. We've got a concept we're working on and I want to dedicate a lot more time on it. 

I'm pretty active on Twitter so if you want to keep up with my keepin ups you can follow me there!

Oh, and FtC is coming out for Android and iOs before Christmas (hopefully). Can't promise iOs before Christmas but Android should be doable.
