New Years Update - Henry CtM

2018-01-03 13:23:49 by PuffballsUnited
Updated

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:

 

CtM

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!

Looks absolutely incredible! Very overgrown feel. The colours are really vibrant and it all stands out so well. Also noticed a subtle little detail: The train. Interesting how all these little things will have plot significance.

And looking closer I see angled cars parked to the left. heh. I get more excited the more stuff I notice on the picture lol. Oh and another thing is I remember you were going to have FtC set sort of in the jungle, but you scrapped the idea. Interesting seeing the idea be refined into something awesome.

Extremely hyped to see how it all comes together and what it's all about!

As for how long it will take don't feel pressured. I'd rather you take 2 years to create a fantastic game than rush it in 1.5 year and it not reach it's maximum potential. Heck, even 3 years if that's what you think is necessary!

Oh and my guess for the name: Capture the Moon?

PuffballsUnited responds:

Yep there's a lot of little details in there! That's why this picture took so long to draw. I guess I've leveled up enough to be able to handle the setting now. Unfortunately I can't dedicate all the time in the world to this game. Having that massive of a mountain of stuff ahead of you can really wear you down.
Good guess for the name but nope.

I'd pay a good £20 to £30 quid, after all it is every single Henry Stickman game lol, but this looks awesome! Can't wait to see what this game will bring! And uh-oh, Henry isn't going to try and fly that thing is he? Last time he did... well, lets just say there's a skeleton behind bars lol.

PuffballsUnited responds:

If he does fly it he'll at least get the staging sequence right (I hope)

9.99 seems fair to me

PuffballsUnited responds:

I'll keep it in mind


XtremeElectrixXtremeElectrix

2018-01-03 17:26:07

Oh and for price? I would happily pay £40 (54$) for this AND the remastered collection.

Remember you can always reduce the price as it lasts longer and remember if it's going on steam there are always sales. I think without any discount maybe 15$-20$? (Sorry if it seems silly of me I don't want to seem rude putting a price on your game)

But since you want a price you could even have it at like $20-25 and you could let people pre-order, for a pre-order maybe some bonus content or maybe a 5-10% discount, or both!

Up to you. But keep those factors in mind. It may make your decision on the price a lot easier.

PuffballsUnited responds:

I'll keep all that in mind!

I would say this is Capture the Moon, but I may be wrong. I would say 10 to 15 dollars sounds right, but, obviously, you can change that. I hope you keep up the great work!

PuffballsUnited responds:

That's a good guess but nope.

I'm guessing this one's gonna be called "Capture the Moon" just looking at the shuttle.

A Fancy Pants Adventure game came out on steam a little while ago and I think it was $10. Was a relatively short game, but definitely fun. Given Fancy Pants had originated as a flash game as well, and comparing the content of that game to the amount in this collection, I'm feeling $20-25 would be a pretty fair pricing for the entire collection. Though if CtM is supposed to be 3x bigger than FtC, then even $30 could be a pretty fair price. Anymore would be pushing it a bit. Definitely not lower than $20 though for this size of game.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Good guess but nope.
I'll keep all that in mind.

what does CtM mean

PuffballsUnited responds:

It's a secret.

2018-01-04 03:47:08

I think that the collection would fit your average price of a steam game (18~24 NZD (13-20 USD). The remastered look so great though, that I think any price will fit such a great collection!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Sounds good

Great! I wonder what program are you using to animate/draw. And to code the game

PuffballsUnited responds:

Adobe Animate and FlashDevelop

From the Screenshot, the game looks as if it going to be a massive long game. It looks wonderful with the amount of detail. My guess for CtM would be "Colonize the Moon"..? Anyway, its a amazing work in progress.

PuffballsUnited responds:

I wouldn't say long, so much as it is wide, if that makes sense. Lots of people are guessing the M is Moon but it is not.

CtM= conquering the moon
also I am really excited about this I will buy it day 1 :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

I'm glad! Also that's not the title ;)

You know I don't analyse pictures, but when I was on my phone I zoomed in on the train and as I came out of the zoom on my phone, I saw a tophat. At first I was reluctant to think it was based on the Toppat clan, but originally I thought the trucks (T&C) signified that, but I thought it was a stretch so I got rid of that assumption, but after I saw the tophat, on the front of the building I immediately realised there was something that quite clearly tied to the Toppat clan, I guess this is how the game is going to end, henry cleaning up the loose ends.

I hope that I didn't share anything I shouldn't have, if Puff wants to delete this comment he is welcome to, but I just thought I'd point it out since I noticed it!

Okay I think I will stop commenting on this post, already my third post in 2 days!
(..As you can tell I am pretty damn excited. lol)

Thanks!

PuffballsUnited responds:

I like your enthusiasm and sleuthing :)
You might be on to something.

I'm gonna take a guess and say that CtM stands for Compromising the Mission. I could be totally wrong. By the way I would say that anywhere from $5 - $15 sounds good.

PuffballsUnited responds:

That's not it!


videogameboy1989videogameboy1989

2018-01-05 21:27:14

Hmm, CtM. That could be anything. Let's see.

The first one is RtB (Robbing the Bank).
The second is EtP (Escaping the Prison).
The third is StD (Stealing the Diamond).
The fourth is ItA (Infiltrating the Airship).
The fifth is FtC (Fleeing the Complex).

So, I'm thinking CtM could be... Capturing the Moon, Conquering the Mission, or maybe... Colonizing the Moon!

As for the price, I'm gonna have to say it'll be likely between $14.99 to $19.99. And I was hoping the new game would be released this year. But I guess I can understand your reason for delaying it to 2019.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Here's hoping I can finish it by then even.


CoralMaynardCoralMaynard

2018-01-06 04:32:38

You hope? I have my doubts, he can't even work a FREAKING TELEPORTER! I mean, that's like mechanics 101, how is he ever going to fly a spaceship properly?

Anyway, my guess for CTM is... hmmmm... does it have anything to do with a maze? That would be appropriate by this game, with so many different branches lol

PuffballsUnited responds:

Nope no mazes

I know I'm late to the party, but I just have one question regarding the next Henry game...

Is Ellie the redhead from Fleeing the Complex going to be in it? Because she and Henry had great chemistry. Plus she was an action girl and who doesn't like a girl who can keep up with the action eh?

PuffballsUnited responds:

She def makes a return

I just signed in to the steam but you know I think I cant buy it. I didn't have credit card. My parents too. Is there is another way to pay using steam or any else? Well, I can't wait.

CtM..
I see there is a rocket, a place for the helicopter to land, and a logo (/) . Could it be... I didn't even have an idea for it. Please give us another clue. How many word for each letter of CTM. I already know the letter T stand for "The". IF u think my english bad(sorry)

Can't wait this game!

-From your DOG fan

PuffballsUnited responds:

Sorry, no more clues for now.

Climbing the Mountain
Conclude the mission

PuffballsUnited responds:

Nope.

Claiming the Mine? Idk... that's wrong, isn't it?

PuffballsUnited responds:

You are correct!!
Meaning you're correct that it's wrong.

I thought that this saga was dead since I could not find new games and it ended in "Fleeing the complex"
Now I realize that he is not dead, that he is also being remastered and will be on Steam
But:

1- This includes from the first to the last?
2- What's up with the game you're playing? What do you mean, 3 times bigger than "Fleeing the complex"? More alternative endings? New characters that work together? More exaggerations such as the MLG?
3- Is there anything insured this year?

4- Will there be the possibility of translating all the games? Maybe with subtitles? from the conversations to what he says in each fail? (to Spanish if possible, for example)

Thanks

PuffballsUnited responds:

All the games yes.
I'll be looking into translated subtitles.

Judging by the rocket it's obviously space-themed. By then the again the tree make it seem jungle themed. Hmm.... dang it. Can't guess the title but I'm excited for it!

PuffballsUnited responds:

What could it be?


MisterCoflaMisterCofla

2018-01-08 07:54:47

"Complete The Monument"? Well, that name I think not, but hey, it's used in minecraft, right? LOL

They could put some other reference to the new game as:

"Knights and Merchants"
"Age of Empires"
"Need For Speed"

And others that still do not come out in this saga? both new and old games?

PuffballsUnited responds:

We will just have to wait and see

I'll be looking forward to playing it, but take your time finishing the game. We all want this game to be the fantastic, grand finale, so don't rush it. A few guesses I have for the name are Climbing the Mountain, Completing the Map, or Charting the Moon, but I would like the name to be revealed at the game's release.

PuffballsUnited responds:

I wont rush, but I do want to get through it. It's such a big undertaking and I want to do other things too

I'm glad to see this getting so far into development! Been a fan of the game since Escaping the Prison. Also, don't worry about it taking too long to develop. I think I would prefer waiting a year longer for a game that is completely finished, than a game that was rushed into release. Hope to see future projects of your's in the future!

PuffballsUnited responds:

It's not so much rushing to finish it for you guys. I have other things I wanna make too :)

Is this some sort of Tophat base?
I have 2 predictions about what will be the story.
1) Tophat clan made a base and will plan something to get revenge on Henry after what he did to them.
2)Tophat clan made a base to build a rocket after their airship getting destroyed. (In one of the endings from ITA

PuffballsUnited responds:

It could be

2018-01-14 23:42:14

Will all the remasters and final chapter be together in one game or in separate?

PuffballsUnited responds:

They're in the same game. I did mention that in the post ;)

1)Do you still play Xbox?
2)Do you have an Xbox one or Xbox 360?
3)Is you're gamertag "PuffballsUnited"? (If yes Im gonna add you)
4)Have you designed the fail screen for CtM?

PuffballsUnited responds:

I do have a 360 and that's my gamertag but I haven't used it in years.
And yes I have designed the fail screen! I like how it turned out!

2018-01-15 18:29:25

I figured as much lol :P hmmmmmmmmm... I give up, it's impossible to figure out...

DANG IT! Anyway, I really am looking forward to this :D FYI, if Henry is gonna try to fly that thing, make sure to give him protection... a full set of armour, along with two very sturdy shields, make sure he's wrapped up in bubble wrap, and have five mattresses or the world's largest trampoline to catch him...

you know what? Don't even let him on, take him to an insanity prison XD

PuffballsUnited responds:

Maybe this takes place in an insanity prison all along :thinking:

SO PUMPED!!! I was especially excited when I noticed the Toppat symbol on the building!! Too bad that we have to wait so long, but also...take your time, man.
And...Completing the Mission?

PuffballsUnited responds:

Yeah that's how these things go.. Doing my best to chug along.

Haha I so knew a jungle Henry game was coming. Didn't expect a rocket though! Anyway the level of detail is amazing here, I love how there's so much stuff in literally every screenshot. I only think the colors are too... vibrant? bright? I don't know just my opinion, but yeah the artwork looks great.

As for what CtM is... Chasing the Meteorite? Crushing the Meteorite? Capturing the Mastermind? Claiming the Moon? Cleaning the Mess? Compromising the Mission? Controlling the Mankind? Catching the Mob?

PuffballsUnited responds:

I mean, jungles are pretty vibrant.

And a few more pics of remastered ones?

PuffballsUnited responds:

Maybe. I don't want to spoil too much


StrangieuStrangieu

2018-01-16 19:02:48

Guess asking which ending is "canon" would be too much, huh? First games and Fleeing the Complex were kind of straight forward. Ending was one, how you achieved it, is up to you. I guess here's the same? Ultimate end was to flee the complex, and Henry achieved that. Just hoping Henry will manage to survive upcoming events. There are games that teach, how ending a series doesn't necessarily mean killing off the main character(/s), although I'm willing to bet that it'll be one of the options. (TB anyone?)

That time tho. It's a butt load of time, and knowing that remastered games are basically done, and now we're waiting for the guest of honor, fills me with conflicting emotions.

Oh well, let the wating games begin. :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

There are no canon endings.

He's had enough of his own shit even.

Awesome as always! Though I am interested on what the subtitle for this game is. I already have a guess on it being: "Crusade to Mars". It would make sense given the space shuttle and launch site. Whatever the name, I'm looking foward to Henry's final adventure to close the Stickmin series!

That doesn't follow the ___ the ____ format.
