Unearthed Update: Shadowy Morg on a Shadowy Planet

Following a short winter hiatus, I have resumed production on Unearthed. I was forced to take some time off during the holidays (and an ill-timed move), but I’m now fully entrenched in the “actual game build” portion of development. As seen above, I’ve been having a lot of fun with NPC movement and script-writing.

The first two areas of the game (Glensborough and Rocky Slalom) are both complete. And when I say “complete” I mean “totally playable.” Since all of the prep work (enemies, abilities, maps, etc…) is already done, I can build Unearthed in a relatively linear fashion. I’m just adding NPCs, setting up flags, and creating movement codes. Lots of work, but pretty straight-forward.

I’ll make another blog post later in the month with some additional progress updates and screencaps. In the meantime, enjoy the gifs and check my Twitter for quick updates and inane ramblings.

Halloween Twitch Stream: Now Online

On Wednesday October 26 at 8:00pm(EST), I was joined by the Starmen.net community on Twitch to play Toby Fox’s Halloween Hack! It was all part of the 2016 Halloween Funfest, and we had a great time playing through the fun (although extremely morbid) EarthBound mod. You can watch the full stream on YouTube, below.

As an added bonus, I showed off the first 20-30 minutes of my EarthBound game hack Unearthed. We walked through the first area of the game, which kick-starts Unearthed’s narrative. If you’d like to skip to that part of the stream directly, head right to 1:29:57.

It’s always a lot of fun to do these streams! I’ll always tweet about them ahead of time, and I invite you all to join in the fun.

Halloween Twitch Stream: October 27 @ 8:00pm

Also known as Press the B Button, Stupid!, this game is an award-winning ROM hack fan sequel of the 1995 cult-classic-role-playing-video-game EarthBound. In addition to being one of the most famous EarthBound hacks, this game also has the added effect of making you depressed as you play. Hooray!

As mentioned earlier, the creator of the game is Toby Fox. You may know him for making the game Undertale, which earned him a billion dollars and a trillion fans. He’s an alright dude.

If you’d like to pose a question or discussion topic for the stream (Halloween related or otherwise), feel free to email me or comment below. I’m looking forward to chatting with you all next week!
