FORUM ADVENTURES: BLAVIS EDITION

Sup cock mongrels, miss me? Been a while since my last microgame, partly because Gobun's stopped drawing his amazing scribbles, and partly because of the ridiculous deluge of amazing games that've come out in the past couple months. It was unbelievably difficult to take Picross 3D out of my DS, which has been its home for the past however-many-months since its release date.

Anyway, dunno if you folks knew, but this past weekend was the Burch Davis Super Union Celebration Party Time, otherwise known as Anthony Burch and Ashley Davis' wedding. Being the rad dudes that they are, they opened their house for the entire Dtoid community.

...or that was the initial plan, anyway, but as do all parties, shit got way too big, and they weren't able to invite as many people as they thought they could. Fortunately, along with fellow community badasses Aerox (Jonathan Ross aka J-Ro aka J-Bro), Gobun (OH GOD YES THE TONGUE), and beverlynoelle (yes, THAT beverlynoelle), I somehow found myself in Phoenix, AZ, witnessing nerdy matrimony between the two lovebirds. I have no idea what I was doing there, as I'm not a big deal by any means (I'm just the guy that makes microgames about community members that dodge boners and poop into fridges to turn them into stacks of pancakes), so I have to give an immense thanks to both Anthony Burch and Ashley Davis for not giving me the boot as soon as they saw my handsome, rugged yellow face.

Since I still feel like a mooching crumbum for "crashing" their wedding so to speak, this is for them. It's a small gesture, but it'll go a way to make up for me eating their food, drinking their champagne, and accidentally inhaling some of the bubble solution they had for the ceremony. There's even a cameo by everyone's favorite hippie Sasquatch, Aaron Linde, so I hope you like it.



Gobun recorded the original ceremony, so here it is for anyone whose interested. It's fairly good quality, aside from Gobun suffering a stroke while filming it.



The wedding as a whole was wonderful, and the hi-jinks afterward were awesome too. Once again I have to give a heartfelt thank you and congratulations to both Anthony Burch and Ashley Davis for everything. Hope you two kids have a nice long life together and make many many babies.

I also have to throw a big shoutout to fellow Bro'd Trip buddies J-Ro, bev, and Gobun, all of which made the trip spectacular. The weekend would've been balls boring without you three, instead of being balls awesome like it was. I will definitely miss the good times; I am for sure hanging out with you brahs very very soon.

I'll end this with a bonus microgame based on some of the very last Gobun madness that happened at an In-N-Out Burger on the way back.



This is really all you need to know.



FUCKING GOBOON.

FORUM ADVENTURES #7: THE MICROGAME

Back again for #7, just as I promised! I probably should've spaced out these releases, since Gobun's comics will be coming slower, as he's still working on Operation Winback: A letter to zombielifecoach. Ah well, if I just let the game fester here I'll become more and more OCD and try to perfect it into a masterpiece even Roger Ebert would have to call art.

Anyway, here's the original comic to refresh your memory. Game was a blast to think up and make, even if the final product turned out a bit too smallish and bland.

All I know is, just thinking that Gobun was called "Lil Goby-Buns" when he was in elementary school makes my heart smile.



If you want to actually see what the eff is going on, go full screen and 480p. You won't be disappointed.

What next? FINALLY I'll get to Jon Bloodspray's game. It's halfway done, but perhaps I'll finish it this time.

FORUM ADVENTURES #6: THE MICROGAME

Remember that post waaaay back when, when I said this would be up tomorrow night? I lied; I just wanted to whore out my own badass self to all of you.

Seriously though, #6 was just so simple and yet conveyed the best part of the comic, so it only took about an hour to make. At this rate, I might even make #7 tonight as well.



I'm making this official: OH GOD YES THE TONGUE is now a Dtoid meme.

FORUM ADVENTURES: THE MICROGAME - INTERMISSION

Miss me, boners? After meticulously analyzing Gobun's last two FORUM ADVENTURES doodles, I finally have ideas for microgames, and I'm working on them as I'm typing. Yes, I multitask like a boss.

Anyway, in the mean time, here's a video to tide you over. It's got nothing to do with vidjagaems, just a really rad person doing some really really rad things, to some pretty cotdamn rad music.


Note: said rad person is me.

If you're deathly jealous of me now, can't blame you, and if you hated that video, NEEEEEERD. But on the bright side, the next two iterations of FORUM ADVENTURES: THE MICROGAME will be up tomorrow night or the night after, depending on how OCD I get and how complicated I make them.

FORUM ADVENTURES #5: THE MICROGAME

I'm churning them out as fast as Gobun is! Just couldn't let the inspired idea of boner-dodging get away from me for too long.



I eagerly await the next one.

FORUM ADVENTURES #4: THE MICROGAME

Two games in one night?! BLASPHEMY!

Actually, this one was fairly quick and easy, and yet still pretty fucking awesome.

What happened to #3, you ask? Well, those of you following Gobun's comics knows that #3 was pretty uneventful, and wasn't exactly microgames-worthy. I'd like to think FORUM ADVENTURES #1: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT is my adaptation of #3.

Anyway, #4, aka "The Diversavan debacle".



Next microgame to come as soon as Gobun ups #5. Meanwhile, I'll finally be working on the "Jon Bloodspray tsunami dream" microgame.

FORUM ADVENTURES #2: THE MICROGAME

#2 in my adaptations of Gobun's comics. It's the most brahsome one by far, but #3 and 4 have a good chance of surpassing this greatness.



Maybe not.

FORUM ADVENTURES #1: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT

So there's been some controversy concerning Gobun's doodle comic FORUM ADVENTURES #1. Gyrael says that's not how it happened, Gobun says it is, and a legendary rivalry is born.

Gyrael retaliated earlier this evening with an equally caustic comic called FORUM ADVENTURES #1: THE FINAL CUT. It's only getting heated, and since I'm a third party and know ALL the details, I decided to tell everyone the TROOF surrounding this shit-talking.

So, using Warioware DIY's "Create-a-Comic" tool, I made my tell-all, uncut, unrated portion of the unadulterated truth, something I call FORUM ADVENTURES #1: THE DIRECTOR'S CUT.




That's how it happens, has happened, and will happen.

FORUM ADVENTURES #1: THE MICROGAME

Here it is, the hotly anticipated inaugural microgame in the "FORUM ADVENTURES" series. Not quite as awesome as I'd hoped it'd be, still pretty great.



More to come as Gobun makes more doodles.

Still working on the Jon Bloodspray tsunami microgame; trying to figure out the actual logistics of the game.

FORUM ADVENTURES: THE MICROGAME COLLECTION

So in case you haven't seen/heard the news, our good buddy Gobun is now going to post his ridiculously awesome hand-drawn doodles on the c-blogs for everyone to criticize.

I've already made a few microgames based on community ideas, but this is a perfect stream of ideas to aid my creatively bankrupt half-assed skill.

So yes, whenever Gobun makes a doodle, I will be making a microgame out of it, via Warioware DIY.

Looks like I finally get a use out of the c-blogs after all.
