Fleeing the Complex Update (Sequel to Infiltrating the Airship)

2015-06-05 17:28:47 by PuffballsUnited

Hey guys, for those of you who don't know I've been working on a sequel to Infiltrating the Airship. It's been about 5 months now and I'm.. only halfway done. I've nearly completed 3 out of the 5 endings.

My inital goal was to have the full game done by July but by March I realized that was not gonna happen. I was still shooting for an August release but that's not gonna happen either, if I'm being realistic. I'm also stressing a bit cuz as the file gets bigger, flash gets more unstable. I really don't want to run into problems right at the end.


SO, the release date for Fleeing the Complex has been pushed BACK until MID FALL. I've been stepping up my working on the game so hopefully the second half of the game will get done faster than the first. 


If you want to keep up to date with my progress you can follow me on Twitter. I tend to post there pretty frequently.

So yeah, hopefully this isn't too disappointing. I'm working to make this one better than the last, and I can def see I've improved since then. 


Here's a sneak peek of the fail screen! :D

Wow :O i can't wait!
Good luck with that 8=D

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks! It's that chode for me? Aww you shouldn't have.


2015-06-05 17:55:49

Hey man, don't worry about it. These things take time.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks man! :)


2015-06-05 18:35:14

Holy shit! A map button??!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?


But seriously now, having a map for navigating through the game is a GREAT idea for quick backtracking in case you miss a fail.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Yep! Also eliminates the confusion between retry and step back.


2015-06-05 22:30:47

@Supaserrin I thought the same :D
@Madjasper1 is right, making a game, mostly a game like this take very much time.
@Ratnic8000 stop with this "faic" xD

PuffballsUnited responds:

yeah there's a lot of animation..


2015-06-05 23:22:52

that looks GREAT!
and Map? wow!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks! I'm really excited about the map feature.


2015-06-06 05:39:18

Thanks for the very early sound warning. :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

No problem ;)


2015-06-06 06:28:59

in the end it is revealed that this is all based on the true stories of puffballsunited's criminal activities.

and also his time playing ace attorney

PuffballsUnited responds:

Shhh dont tell anyone


2015-06-06 08:05:14

Omg, I can't wait! I'm sure this game will be awesome. :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

I hope it lives up to the expectations.


2015-06-06 19:16:16

there should be a part where you use the arrow keys to control something.

PuffballsUnited responds:

mmm... It doesn't really seem fitting for this series. Also I don't know how to program it :P


2015-06-06 19:40:40

awesome new henry stickman!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BRAGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Oh yeah that should prolly be in there.


2015-06-06 20:38:13

Anyway what gave you this idea of making this game sequel???

PuffballsUnited responds:

I don't remember. I think it was a revised idea from when I was coming up with Infiltrating the Airship


2015-06-06 20:57:59

I look forward to it, man! Been playing the series since the beginning; playing Escaping the Prison actually was part of what introduced me & my sis to NG! I was just thinking about Infiltrating the Airship today, so imagine my pleasant surprise when I see your news post on the front page. I look forward to the release, but take your time developing. :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

Whoa that's awesome! Thanks for the kind words.


2015-06-06 22:17:10

I wonder how this game will pan out, also I see a map, is this going to be an area to the complex? also will there be a story behind this...and whats shiny square in the bottom right corner, so many questions! and barely any answers....I'm blaming the Illuminati for lack of info.

PuffballsUnited responds:

The map will allow you to jump to any scene you've already seen. The thing it the bottom right is just part of the flash window when I export the game, left over from cropping the screenshot.


2015-06-07 12:18:25

Ok, to be honest, I'm both happy and kinda disappointed.

Disappointed, because now I need to wait even longer, but happy because you're making it as good as you possibly can, and that's worth it in my opinion.

Also, you say you're nearly done with 3 out of 5 endings, how many fails would that make?

PuffballsUnited responds:

It's at around 30.


2015-06-07 17:41:33

So, which ending of ITA is canon?

PuffballsUnited responds:

All of them


2015-06-08 15:44:49

wow,this is coo!!l,but this school is a piece of s··t that no makes me create games

PuffballsUnited responds:

Just do it on your own! The internet is great for this sorta thing. School got me started but I learned a lot on my own too.


2015-06-11 00:56:28

it's about time

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks Tychus.


2015-06-11 11:15:01

I wonder if there'll be another fake ending.

PuffballsUnited responds:

I wonder as well


2015-06-11 13:23:26

Looking cool already... loved all of these games. Would be really interesting if your endings in the previous ones could effect the game in this one, but there's only so much that you can do. Can't wait to fail hard here too

PuffballsUnited responds:

The endings from ItA will definitely play a part. It's pretty hard to get it to make sense with so many different possible endings in all the games but I'm hoping I've found a good way to do it.


2015-06-20 19:40:54

HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! MAP BUTTON! BUT WHAT DOES IT DO?

PuffballsUnited responds:

The map shows every scene you've visited, and you can jump back to them. That way you don't have to keep hitting Step Back or start over and go through each scene to get to places you need.


2015-06-21 13:31:41


PuffballsUnited responds:



2015-07-02 10:57:14

I'm glad to hear that you've been working on another sequel! Good luck with developing the game, I can't wait for your ultimate-crazy-funny achievements/medals and other stuff. :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks! I'm hoping I've improved upon the last game.


2015-07-02 17:25:21

*sigh* fine........

when is mid fall?

PuffballsUnited responds:

Somewhere between fall 8th and fall 20th.


2015-07-05 07:27:49

The game is come date?And rename Infiltrating The Airship 2 xD

PuffballsUnited responds:

There's no official date yet.


2015-07-07 23:33:13

Plz put a plants vs zombies reference in the game. Plz :)

PuffballsUnited responds:



2015-07-13 16:00:20

Such A Master Piece!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Pop the champagne!


2015-07-13 16:01:01

What did he use?

PuffballsUnited responds:

You'll see when the time comes.


2015-07-14 08:01:41

Can't wait to see it!. Hope it's funny enough. :D

PuffballsUnited responds:

I hope so too!


2015-07-20 23:32:38


PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks for the kind words!


2015-07-27 23:21:14

Woah Dude! Is this coming out this summer?

PuffballsUnited responds:



2015-07-27 23:23:25

WOW I just realized that its coming out in MID FALL lol didnt read P:

PuffballsUnited responds:

Hah no worries! I'm gonna really push to meet my deadline goals.


2015-08-08 00:52:17

Thanks for The heads up but Don't Worry
Things Gonna Get Better Just Keep On The
Right Track!

PuffballsUnited responds:

The way I see it, it's better to just give it the time it needs to it will be good.


2015-08-11 03:23:25

Looking good man! No rush.

Gotta ask, what inspires you to make all the settings for the games?

PuffballsUnited responds:

Hmm... I don't really know. This one was actually gonna be in a jungle first, but then I realized I hate drawing trees so I moved it hah! This idea was also the original idea for ItA but I ended up going with the airship idea.


2015-08-24 06:02:38

For the H. Stickman series

99.9% awesome! 00.1% ...Huh?

What order is it? Is it breaking the bank 1st... Than stealing the diamond? I'm confused

PuffballsUnited responds:

You can tell by the order they're released.
Breaking the Bank
Escaping the Prison
Stealing the Diamond
Infiltrating the Airship
I don't know why people get confused. He doesn't get arrested in StD so why would he be in jail?


2015-08-25 16:51:40

How's it going? Are you able to give a more solid release date.

PuffballsUnited responds:

I'm getting close to being comfortable with that. I have a new schedule so I'm seeing how much more work I can get done before I say anything.


2015-08-28 12:45:02

Looking forward to the game soon! Support from me here!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Awesome! Thanks!


2015-09-02 18:04:32

Take your time! We're not rushing you of course ^.^ Games certainly take time, I know from experience. I've not made any games on here quite yet, but I plan to do so in the future.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Especially games that are essentially a ton of animation.


2015-09-03 11:11:42

Take your time, as many as you want, it's free and we are not rushing you. Hope it will come out as good as the ITA one. So good luck with THAT!

PuffballsUnited responds:

Thanks! I'm hoping it turns out BETTER than ItA :D


2015-09-06 08:12:17

After Fleeing the Complex will be the 6th game of Henry?

PuffballsUnited responds:

Sigh. I don't know. I wish you would focus on the one I'm spending a lot of time on now :\


2015-09-07 13:53:11

This Is Gonna Be Fun

PuffballsUnited responds:

:D I hope so!


2015-09-10 19:12:42

Damn. I remember I was only 10 when I started playing your Henry Stickmin games in 2010. 5 years later, you're making the 5th installment to the Stickmin series. Time passes by so fast, your games are the best man. Keep them up.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Oh boy I feel old hah. Didn't realize it's been this long.


2015-09-13 19:26:33

Also i found a link to what appears to be like a joke or maybe its a uncomplete part of the game wich is an look at the complex from above it but if you wanna see it follow the link right here >>> http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/f0e737878136f211adadf26193896790 its only the complex but without music and, without the rest of the game.

PuffballsUnited responds:

Yeah I put that up to show off the design of the complex and the title screen.


2015-09-13 21:38:21

This series fills the void that came from jonbro's "riddle school" ending. (I dont know which came first but i found riddle school first) So excited!

PuffballsUnited responds:

I'm pretty sure Riddle School came first


2015-09-18 12:54:06

I'm getting excited... latest update for fails I heard is 36/58, but that was 16 days ago, so... wondering how many you're up to now. :)

PuffballsUnited responds:

Check the new news post for a more recent update :D


2015-09-22 04:31:26

I really like the Henry Stickmin series, the Escaping the Prison was the first game I've played in Newgrounds and commented in. I'm really excited for the 5th one on the series!

Btw, is that a "loud sound" warning? :3

PuffballsUnited responds:

Whoa what an honor! And yes it is, but i don't think it'll be too bad.


2015-09-27 13:36:55

Looks amazing, man! I know by experience that professional games take a long time to make, so take your time. By the way, can you please explain what the game is basically about? (On a side note, I downloaded the phone version of Escaping the Prison, it's amazing!)

PuffballsUnited responds:

So the game is basically about trying to Flee a Complex.


2015-09-28 05:46:29

Is FtC almost finished I've noticed that marcus hasn't added anything about it in the last week and ive figured out something its strange but on the title screen for FtC u can see a trash chute that's probably an ending in the game

PuffballsUnited responds:

It could be an ending, I won't say.


2015-09-28 05:48:22

Marcus u are a God and I bow down to u how are u by the way bro

PuffballsUnited responds:

Oh whoa thank you


2015-09-30 12:54:47

What ending in infiltrating the airship was canon

PuffballsUnited responds:

All of them. I'm not sure how to convey this best though. Like certain paths may only make sense if you had done a specific path in ItA but other paths might make sense with any of the endings.


2015-10-02 18:02:29

How are u Marcus can u send me a message when FtC comes out because I don't have
