I was wondering when someone would ask.

Rise of the Mini-unz is in no way cancelled, but my input for ROTM has dropped lately. This game should rejuvinate my interest, so I can ultimately make ROTM better in the future.

I like the intro and idea, both are great, but the screeny isn't good, and it really frustrates me, because I know you could make this great.

I think the environment should look more white, clean, and sterile, kinda like Portal.

That screenie was only whipped up quickly so this thread wouldn't get locked. I'm gonna go for the white, sterile look, with some yellow. I'm gonna be working hard to establish a unique look for the levels, it's just gonna take some time.

just throwing out an idea here you should tie in S.M.I.L.E industries somehow with rise of the miniunz like what portal did with HL2 ep2

Haha, that is EXACTLY what I mean.

Looks fantastic.

Can't wait to play, you should definitely do cutscenes, and I know they will be good.

If you need any help further down the road (like, when you're almost done and need voice/video work), email me.

Well, obviously FPSC doesn't have the same depth of puzzle potential as portal, so I made the decision early on to make it more action-oriented. Gotta play to the programs strengths. But the action will be really varied and there will be a puzzle element, although I'm finding the best way to implement this.

Nah. I've already got Rise of the Mini-unz. I may do more cartoon games in the future, but I want to take things down to earth for this one. But it'll be just as quirky.

As I said, ROTM hasn't been cancelled. Just postponed. This game just had to be done and ROTM had kinda come to a standstill. And thanks for the comment. That made my day.

When I first read the thread title, I thought It was some noob who was hiring people for his "company."

The game looks pretty good, and it does remind me of portal. Anything that reminds me of Portal is incredibly awesome.

Greetings [FRIENDS]

SMILE industries would like to know if applicants would be interested in our "subject interactivity" program. This program would allow employees to interact in new, inventive ways. They can exchange conversations and used bullets, develop team skills, flag and node capture and [PWNAGE] skills. If people are interested, they can meet and greet at the happy lab colloseum in Q3 2008.

[INCASE YOU HAVEN'T CAUGHT ON, SMILE INDUSTRIES REFERS TO MULTIPLAYER MODE]

So, are you interested? Voice your opinions here. And remember: a S.M.I.L.E. is contagious.

WOW.

Haha, this game looks great. I'll do a site for you, or any graphic design. I don't know yet if I'm up for textures (exams, and stuff) but I can try.

Anndd I'll do some movie stuff too. In fact I'll do a demo movie for you now.

(Double Post)

Ok, I whipped up a background, the actual smile on the face might be a little too "hand drawn" looking, but for now I think it's ok.

I went for the Portal's "Aperture Technologies" (or whatever) look. The professional, but still disturbing look. Haha, so enjoy this wallpaper.

I might start working on a little "video" about the company, with happy music, but disturbing vibes. Haha.
