Renegade said it probably wouldn't be out until at least December, so we have a while to wait. :)

09-07-2008, 15:41:27
CONGRATS CRIM :D:D:D ME feels proud to have a loonie in the game. (Try to take some plans for any future attacks while you are in there) :P

YAY!!!! I can't wait!!! Ooh, I can't wait until classes are out and I have more playtime. :D

The contest continues:

Forum members Mcrackkley and Crimsonthread are already getting appearances in the game; if you'd like a briefer appearance as well, enter this contest.
The winners of this contest will be available for players to call in game on a cellphone.

Please read the details on how to enter the contest here:

The deadline is 31st of July.

07-24-2009, 04:41:09
interesting lol ill have to enter again :P

07-24-2009, 19:51:17
i might enter. but i might look ugly...

nah im just kidding. im not gonna enter. though i did join the forums as a member.

07-29-2009, 21:36:50
People need to enter! You have a chance to be in the game! no one has entered yet:(

07-29-2009, 22:23:54
The line "The winners of this contest will be available for players to call in game on a cellphone" is not fully clear to me.

It hasn't anything to do with a real cellphone, but a cellphone in the game itself right? *feels silly to ask this :shy:*

07-29-2009, 22:27:31
Yes, that's correct :)
The winner won't have a main role in the game (like in the previous part of the contest), but will have a small supporting role. The player can call them on the phone in the game itself (not on a real phone of course) :)

07-29-2009, 22:36:32
Thanks for the clarification. :)
But I won't submit an entry because it should include a photo too. Don't mind sending one to Renegade by pm or email, but I am not going to post it open in the thread. Perhaps this is odd of me, because I posted photos of myself in a thread before, but somehow I don't feel comfortable with it now. Oh well, I am rambling. :P Hope there will be entries though. :)

07-29-2009, 22:38:30
Renegade has mentioned that you can send the photo in private to him. It will solely be used to draw your character :)
But I can understand your hesitation. :)

07-29-2009, 22:49:43
Hehe, I clearly didn't read the small lines at the end. :P Thanks again. ;)
Maybe I will give it a shot.. :hmm:

07-29-2009, 22:54:54
If you'll be in there, I'll be sure to call you - whatever role you get (a friend? a police woman? my boss? Lol :haha:)

07-29-2009, 22:59:16
I'm gonna enter, too! :D

07-29-2009, 22:59:58
Goodie :D If you get in there, I'll call you, too, of course ;)

07-29-2009, 23:37:39
I would enter, but... :P

07-30-2009, 00:21:05
If you'll be in there, I'll be sure to call you - whatever role you get (a friend? a police woman? my boss? Lol :haha:)
Or the annoying rambling neighbour. :haha: :P

I'm gonna enter, too! :D
Yay! :D

I would enter, but... :P
..you are so kind to give us a chance too this time. :P

Edit: I feel very brave to be the first participant. :P And I feel like hiding now. So much for being brave.. :P

07-30-2009, 00:23:05
Lol :haha:
Now how will it be to call yourself in the game :? :P

07-30-2009, 00:25:53
Probably annoying. :P I put my bets on Escape. :P Go EsacpeCat! :D

Hehe, I feel very brave to be the first participant. :P And I feel like hiding now. So much for being brave.. :P

07-30-2009, 00:41:18
Haha. You ARE brave! I just couldn't think of anything interesting to write about myself. :P I don't know if he wants my BatCat side, or the real me. :P

07-30-2009, 00:44:41
You are not backing out, right? :o
You could write about both. Or the side you like the most to write about. :)

07-30-2009, 00:58:48
..you are so kind to give us a chance too this time. :P

It's not as if I kept anyone from trying last time, or disguised the due date... :P It was my Tib who really won, anyway... I think you'll agree when you see the game. :haha:

@Escape--I think your batcat side would be amusing. :P

07-30-2009, 02:05:03
No, no....I'm not backing out. Just pondering what to write about. :P

Hehe. Maybe I'll do both...but be sure to include my BatCat side. ;)

07-30-2009, 02:16:46
lol :P i posted kinda lol i posted i thought i logged in but it turned out i put it as guest so i put under it oops ^that was me :P

08-01-2009, 09:51:09
Only three entries? That's a pity. :(
Had Renegade requested to post the contest also on other sites?

08-01-2009, 19:51:06
Only 3?
I don't know if Renegade has alienish friends on other sites :hmm: :haha:

08-01-2009, 20:01:43
We all won!! All three of us!! :D :ura:

Congrats Funja and Escape. :hug2:

@Mystery, so Renegade only communicates with Aliens? :P

08-01-2009, 20:05:09
Yay, congrats you all of you: Adventure, Escape and Funja :appl: :D

08-01-2009, 20:06:20

08-02-2009, 01:26:57

08-02-2009, 04:34:29

08-17-2009, 18:57:39
Renegade has just emailed me saying the game is almost done.

He said "Okay so I took the first step of getting a sponsorship for the game yesterday, upllading it to a private Flash site for devloper review (in other words its not that far off being finished :o)"

I asked for a time frame so check this site again to see if I update it with that.

08-17-2009, 19:00:36
Sounds great :D I've been checking his site regularly to see if it was out. I'm VERY curious :D

08-17-2009, 19:28:42
YAY! I can't wait. I'm really excited. I know he's worked hard on this game, too. :) Really curious/anxious. :D Thanks for the update. :D

08-18-2009, 14:29:47
Great! :D I am really curious to the end result. I don't know what to expect but the previews looked really good. :)

Thanks for the update mcakkay. :)

08-26-2009, 17:14:39
So, when Renegade sent me that update he also said some game testers didn't like the game or though certain characters were annoying and such. Renegade had me test out 1 & 1/2 screens to see if I would like it and therefore probably the rest of the people who will actually play the game. I liked what I saw..can't give anything away but it has Renegades normal humour in it and the graphics look great! I really don't know that much about the game from what I played but I think everyone here will like it.

Just letting you guys know :)

08-26-2009, 17:17:08
Yeah, I heard about that from Renegade, too :S
Game sponsors have their own tastes, and we got our looney taste ;)
I'm waiting for the game :D

08-26-2009, 17:21:32
I agree :)

08-26-2009, 19:31:15
Yeah...pa-pooey on those games testers who maybe didn't think highly enough of it. :P (Kidding) Like Mistery said, everyone has their own taste. ;) I love his humor and have no doubt that I'll love the game. :)

Thanks for the update, Mcakkay! :D

09-25-2009, 10:00:30
Hi all, just a quick update.

Renegade still finishing up parts of the game, and has not found a sponsor for it yet. He also needs music for it, which he hasn't been able to get so far.

He wanted to have the game finished by now, but things are not quite going as originally planned. :(

You will need to have some more patience :)

09-25-2009, 17:19:16
That sucks. :( I hope that Renegade can get the sponsor and music soon, as I know he's creating a good game. But hey, all good things are worth the wait. ;) Thanks for the update, Mistery. :hug2:

09-30-2009, 21:41:19
Posted by Renegade at CMSbox (http://saybox.cmsbox.co.uk/)

1/ it's still "almost" finished :) apaprently it "needs " music for the title screen at least, which I haven't bene able to get hold of yet. on the game side of things, there's one room left to add, and the game ending to finalise.

2/ It's based on a fairytale. you'll recognise the story for sure.

3/ None of the puzzles require trial and error to figure out. this is something i've gone back and looked at in other games I've made and decided isn't realyl that much fun.

4/ Most of the devlopment time has gone into writing diagloue for the game. There are hundreds and hundreds of lines of captions, but they can be disabled for those who don't like reading. In testing the caption system has got fairly negative feedback, so this is the only game I'll be writing in so much detail for (it's too late to change it this time around though).

5/ A well known character from another flash game has a cameo appeaarance (with permission).
6/ for those of you who told me to kepe making "find the keys" games, there's a sidequest to collect a certain number of a different item :)

7/ The game has 5 trophies to collect. you can't get all 5 of them in one playthrough.

8/ One character has an unlockable bonus outfit. I don't usually care about that sort of thing in games, but even Flora, the artist for this game, was stunned by it.

9/ contest winner Crimsonthread and forum regular Mcakkay both have featured roles in the game. Mcakkay's character is somewhat controversial, with one flash developer who tried the game saying he wanted to smack her in the face.

10/ There are 14 scenes in the game, plus one the player never visits (only seen in the game intro). There are over 30 items to find, not counting the sidequest mentioned above.

09-30-2009, 23:47:08

10-01-2009, 04:48:16
Sounds great :D Thanks for the news! :)

Btw, we won't let Mcakkay get slapped :alien: ;)

10-01-2009, 08:49:27
Sounds good to me!! And I have a feeling I'll like having a storyline, too. Almost like an interactive/game book or comic. :) Sounds really interesting and I'm definitely looking forward to it. :D

*gives Mcakkay a nice invisibility cloak.* No one will slap her now. They can't find her! ;)

10-01-2009, 09:06:06
Oh I like fairytales. :happydancing:
Sounds like it's gonna be a game that you can't play within a hour. That's great! :D An I love that there' gonna be a side quets and bonusses in the game. I really, really look forward to play this game. :D

Thanks for the update Mcakkay. :hug2:

Hey that's mine invisible cloak! :o It's okay. :P ;) Of course we won't let Mcakkay get slapped. :bud:

10-01-2009, 14:00:29
I have an invisable cloak somewhere but can't find it. Looking forward to the game after reading so much about it. Sorry Renegade is having frustrations getting the game out but I am certain all the blood sweat and tears will be rewarded. Sounds awesome!

10-02-2009, 00:26:01
I have an invisable cloak somewhere but can't find it.

Hahahah niceee

Thanks everyone for protecting me haha. I just hope none of you turn on me :(
Don't worry I don't believe that you will :) I'm not really annoying in real life lol
I am also excited for this game :D And will keep updating as needed! (y)

10-03-2009, 17:04:33
I know I'm double posting but I wanted people to see this.

Posted by Renegade
1/ If you've never worked in Flash this won't mean a lot to you, but the entire game (discounting title and preloaders) is on one frame.

2/ the art - which i'm sure you've seen screenshots of by now - has cost me almost $1,000. flora is a world class artist, and worth every penny of it. the money is money that was raised from past games i've made, msotly from ads, and a few small donations from various people. so for those of you who were here playing my games when we used the awful Clicksor popups, and for those of you who leave your adbloocker disabled whiel you play my games so that the Google ads can display; this is my thank you to you :D

3/ The size of the project makes bugfinding now pretty difficult. even a typo in a caption can take 5 to 10 minutes just to find.

4/ last time I checked, the size of thr compiled game was over 6mb. for a flash game thts' pretty big (Kongregate and many other sites have a 10mb limit). if you're still on dialup internet: sorry :P

5/ Earlir this year, the game was already getting pretty big in fileseize, to the point that I ended up buying a new PC partly to be able to handle it. it was gettin impossible to add anything more to it wihout lagging the whole system, and compiling would freeze the computer.

6/ most of the development time has gone into caption / dialogue writing. When I started, I wrote an engine that can handle almost any part of the game with just one or two lines of copy pasted code, but the script didn't write itself :)

7/ initially there was no diagloue in the game except for the intro and a few characters to talk with planned. however, this felt empty and wasn't that engaging compared to the colourful nature of the world.

8/ TO counter this, I decided the main character would have a lot to say. the problem was, he was talking to himself. So nowhe has a brother to talk to.

9/ not everyonel ikes the dialgoue system. i've added an option to disable all but essential captions - this leaves the game feelign a bit empty again, and somewhat misses the point of it, but it's the player's own choice whether to read the captions or not.

10/ The aptions are as userfrieldny as possible, allowing players to skip through them with a click of the mouse eevn if they left them enabled. To save your time, most captions will only display once per game: if you read the conversation for a particular item once alredy, you won't have to read it a second time. Exceptions are important objects, and other characters.

That's it, thanks for reading. If you'vebeen following work on my game for this long its probably fair to mention why its been delayed so much,despite being nearly finished for so long - in short i've had a couple of big personal problems that have realyl affecetd how much I can work. This isnt a LiveJournal blog so I'm not gonna go into huge amounts of detail on that, but its enough to say that the past year hasn't gone how I hoped at all.

YAY! I hope he finds a sponsor soon! And I love the LYR series, so I look forward to that, too!

Thanks for the update dear alien! :hug2:

03-24-2010, 22:12:52
Yes, I also hope that he'll find a sponsor soon (despite of the bad experience with sponsors earlier) :)
And I also look forward to the LYR type game :)

03-25-2010, 00:00:45
YAY! *still waiting on prize for winning the first contest*

Latest News:

Finally an update! I was checking the site yesterday for it. How great the game is finished, but too bad they haven't found a sponsor yet. I really hope they will find one soon. It must be an really good game if only because of all the hard work they put in it. Maybe I shouldn't set my expectations too high, but after all it's an renegade game, and the games I played made by him I loved. :)

Also it's great to hear they will be a new leaving Your Room game. :D *starts to message her clickclickclick-hand in advance.. maybe pluck some tomatoes too, just in case..*

03-25-2010, 01:42:08
Yay is all i can say :) I have waited forever :) :) :) cant wait ill deffinetly read the text to cause i know how long that took lol

I'm hoping my new game Sleeping Beauty, will be released later this week, or next week. Check back for more details on Thursday.

If you do enjoy the game (and I really hope you do!) please consider making a small donation to me via PayPal. It wasn't cheap to make (about $1,000 went directly on development), and sponsorships for this type of game aren't huge since its for a niche audience. Whether or not I can make a follow up game depends a lot on player support.

Finally... if you don't like reading all the captions, there is an option to disable of them other than essential ones. I figured I'd mention this in advance so that anyone linking the game from gaming blogs or forums can mention it there too, since not everyone enjoys the irrelevant conversations between the two main characters.

04-12-2010, 04:15:52
:D So excited to hear this!

04-12-2010, 12:51:20
Great news :D
I hope that he'll get donations :)

04-13-2010, 01:09:24

Sleeping Beauty is on track for release sometime next week. Sponsor negotiations seem to be almost finalised & that's the only thing currently delaying release.

The game will be exclusive to the sponsor site for about a week, but of course it will be directly linked from here.

04-15-2010, 20:48:32

04-17-2010, 17:57:11
What do you mean your file? Like your picture?

04-17-2010, 19:02:02
What do you mean your file? Like your picture?

I suppose so. He said, "I don't have the files for you saved seperately right now, so I can't send yourself to you." :P

04-18-2010, 08:31:15
ahh I see. Makes perfect sense lol :P

04-23-2010, 23:12:24
I suppose so. He said, "I don't have the files for you saved seperately right now, so I can't send yourself to you." :P

Only in the looney world of GH would that sentence make perfect sense. :haha: "...so I can't send yourself to you." :haha:

ROFL, I didn't wonder about that part, but now that I see it from this point of view - yes it sounds :crazy:

I've just received good and bad news from Renegade, and he has given me permission to share them publicly here:

I'm planning to release the game without a sponsor since I can't find anyone interested in sponsoring it fairly. It means there probably won't be a sequel (we had one planned out, with a bunch of improvements, that was going to be started next), since it cost too much to make, and it's clear there's not going to be that much interest in it outside of fans of my current game, but I hope the people who do play it will enjoy it.

As for when I'll release it now, I'd like it to be soon. It may have to wait until we're done with a server transfer for the site before I upload it, or I might risk putting it on the current machine and hoping it doesn't explode.

LYR 10 is waiting on the last few pieces of art so I can finish that up.
I feel very sorry that after so much time, the sponsoring didn't work out :(
I wish I had the means to support him...

It's sad to hear Renegade didn't find any sponsors. :( I am actually a little surprised by this to be honest. I mean Renegade has build up a name and has many fans. The sponsors could get a great range of advertisement. I wish it was elsewise.. I hope that the game will be a success and that maybe sponsors find their way after all. :)

"Oh no! There are currently too many connections. Please wait a few minutes, run around the room, sing a song, and try again (but dont sing if youre from Gamershood, you guys are terrrible at singing)."

Really, it says that now? :haha:

05-06-2010, 18:44:05
ya lmao. Did it say something else before?

05-06-2010, 18:50:07
Well, apparently from what I have read in the thread, it said the same without the GH part in the brackets - but it seems Renegade has seen that players wanted to start to sing while waiting, and he might have added that :P :haha:

Well, I suggest that all members have to take a singing test, and those who are not good singers are prohibited singing so loud that Renegade hears them :P :haha:
