Stealing the Diamond Sequel + Pico Day(!)

2013-04-08 15:10:31 by PuffballsUnited

Hi! It's been almost a year since I posted here, sorry.. I kept telling myself I'd do it but then I'd get distracted. Anyway, got some news here for ya.

First off, I've been working on the sequel to Stealing the Diamond for the past 4 months (actually more but since the start of this year I've been pretty on it about working every day). If you follow me on Twitter you probably know all this. The sequel is going to be called..
Infiltrating the Airship

I'm about 75% done with it and the fail count is at 50 and I'm shooting for 60 or 62 (Can't have it be a filthy odd number) EDIT, just realized 61 is a prime number which makes it even worse! As for a release date, I'm hoping to get it released sometime in May. I've made some timelapse videos of different parts of the game. Here's one of the title screen being made.

In other exciting news, I got invited to Pico day and I've booked a flight I'm going!! I'm really excited (But also quite nervous) to meet everyone at NG and of course all the animators, artists, programmers, musicians and the rest that are going. I used to watch the steam in years past and wonder what it would be like to be there with everyone, and now I'm going to find out!

So yeah,
Stealing the Diamond 2 = Infiltrating the Airship
Pico day, I am going

Well hope I didn't forget anything.

Pico Day, woohoo! We're setting up the video stream stuff this week.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Awesome! :D It'll be weird to be on the other side of the screen this year haha.


2013-04-08 15:39:31

Waiting patiently for ItA.Hi-five,man!

PuffballsUnited responds:

High five!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Hey thanks!


2013-04-08 17:08:45

So freakin excited dude... Stealing the Diamond is without question on my top 5 favorite games I've played on Newgrounds. I sure hope it has Medals though.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Wow thanks! That's still weird for me to hear. It's def gonna have medals! A lot more than Stealing the Diamond.


2013-04-08 20:08:24

cool cant wait for it and um...

when is pico day and stuff i now have to learn about it ._.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Pico day is on the 27th. I think Tom made a news post about it a bit ago so I would check there.


2013-04-08 20:18:58

Someday I want to make a game with the same kind of staggering scale Infiltrating the Airship probably has. It sounds humongous!

Have fun at Pico Dayyy

(Updated ) PuffballsUnited responds:

I'll let you judge for yourself how big it is when it releases. You're not gonna go to Pico day?


2013-04-08 20:19:50

Odd numbers killed my family. I feel your discontent for such scum.

PuffballsUnited responds:

We must unite against them!


2013-04-08 22:20:59

Oh man. Your game is getting close. Nice work for keeping on top of it so diligently. A valuable skill to have.

I hope Pico Day goes well!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Yeah it's been good to set a schedule to follow! Thanks I'll let you know how it is!


2013-04-09 03:57:04

Glad to hear you're going to the party, and believe me, you're going with some impressive credentials under your hat, so there's no need to worry. I on the other hand, am grossly underqualified... and old.

PuffballsUnited responds:

I can't help but compare myself to the great animators of NG though, but thanks! I'll be sure to look out for someone that looks like Asterix when I'm there.


2013-04-09 07:10:07

That's great news, all of it. Guess I'll be seeing you on the webcam then. As for Stealing the Diamond, looking forward to that! I just played the first game a couple of weeks ago and wasn't expecting any more greatness like it, so this was an unexpectedly blissful surprise. Good lcuk at the meet!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Except nobody knows what I look like MWAHAHAHAHAAAAhhh. Hey thanks, I'm glad you enjoyed the game! This next one is so much better than Stealing the Diamond (In my opinion anyway)


2013-04-09 12:32:18

cool ^ ^ )

PuffballsUnited responds:

That is a crooked smile


2013-04-09 14:15:11

ok thanks for the heads up dude

cant wait to see the squeel to!

PuffballsUnited responds:

No prob, I hope everyone enjoys it!


2013-04-09 14:15:28



2013-04-09 17:52:49

I sure hope you manage to pack a ton of references in this new game. It's what really helped make the previous games so enjoyable.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Of course! But it's a fine line between too many and too few. Hopefully I did well


2013-04-09 19:21:20

awesome cant wait to play it

PuffballsUnited responds:

I can't wait to finish it!


2013-04-09 20:55:06

have fun in pico day PuffballsUnited. :)

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks! I'm sure it'll be awesome!


2013-04-09 22:55:05

The last game was pretty funny

PuffballsUnited responds:



2013-04-10 06:52:38

Game Medals (will secret ? )

PuffballsUnited responds:

Yep, haven't decided how many of them will be secret yet


2013-04-10 06:54:04

sorry that I said stupidity !

PuffballsUnited responds:

You're fine


2013-04-10 10:39:25

I thought I was alone when it came down to never have a odd number on anything XD

PuffballsUnited responds:

Looks like a lot of people are the same


2013-04-10 14:18:27

Dude, awesome man! I am looking forward to this!

Just a question, how many Henry Stickmen game are you gonna make?

Also, have fun at Pico Day!

PuffballsUnited responds:

I think this will be the last Henry game for a while. It's really hard to make a game like this and have it feel new. Plus I think I want to move on past stick figures and develop my skills more. I also want to move into making more advanced games.


2013-04-11 08:48:15

Sir, I can't wait for ITA, Im sure it's gonna be blast!!!!

God Speed and God Bless....
Good Luck at Pico's Day and have a safe flight....

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks! Kind words sir, I appreciate them :)


2013-04-13 09:36:38

Dude! This is great, I didn't think there was going to be another one, I always thought Stealing the Diamond was the finale, glad your making ITA.
I might watch your time lapse, I've got work to do though, so I'll talk to you later.
P.S: Hope you enjoy Pico day.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks I hope so too! I ended up coming up with enough material for another one.


2013-04-14 20:38:51

If You Need Help With A Logo ...
I Mean ... A Fan Art Of Your Game ! :3
I Would Help ! >U<

PuffballsUnited responds:

If you want to make fan art I have no qualms with that. However i've got pretty much everything under control for this game.


2013-04-18 18:35:22

hey dude i wanted to ask,when will the game be released?

im trying to be patient as much as possible :3 but im pretty sure it will be worth the wait :)

PuffballsUnited responds:

I'm shooting for next month!


2013-04-22 12:02:36

Erm, so it's the Stealing the Diamond story now? So Escaping the Prison is Stealing the diamond -1? No offence. Just thought the story had an actual name.

PuffballsUnited responds:

No I say Stealing the Diamond sequel because it's a sequel to that game. It's still part of the Henry Stickmin series.


2013-04-24 10:09:05

This is a bit late for certain reasons, but I thought it was called the Henry Stick series or something.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Yeah you're right.


2013-04-25 01:45:31

Yay! I loved the games and I cannot wait for Infiltrating the Airship to come out!! I finally figured out what the crowbar fail in Stealing the Diamond was (headcrabs), as I said I am super excited!!

Hope it will be epic! (duh)

-Firstaid223 (aka Superdash223)

PuffballsUnited responds:

I hope you like it when it comes out!


2013-04-28 00:36:43

Now what business would Mr.Stickmin have with an airship?

PuffballsUnited responds:

You'll just have to wait and see!
