Happy New Year + 2017 Projects + Goals

Happy New Year! Check out my Game Reel for 2016 below:

 

Projects Coming in 2017

  • A new 6 part Visual Novel series called "Phantom Reverse." It's about a rumoured curse randomly killing students at a high school. There's a little horror, a little drama, and a little adventure. It's my best narrative yet, by far.
  • A new 5 part Visual Novel series in a similar vein to Dead Detention, (for now) titled "Blue Lights." It's about an alien invasion set at a high school. It's fun, hyper and weird - with the same doodle-y, notepad "art" of Dead Detention.
  • A mini trilogy of dark visual novels called "Red Rain" - about a grown up, gritty Max from Dead Detention. The story is about him trying to save his twin brother from the clutches of Clear Moon.
  • A couple dumb, meme-y, viral-ish games. My projects get a little depressing, and dark, sometimes, so I thought it'd be cool to do some dumb joke games next year. You know, just stuff making fun of pop culuture.
  • ...and a couple of those tiny, little emotional games I make

Changes Coming 2017

Going forward, all of my projects will be exported to HTML5 - meaning that they'll be playable on mobile devices. All games will also now go up on Newgrounds, Kongregate and itch.io. I really want to grow up my audience :)

I might also attempt to do something with my YouTube channel, which you can check out (and subscribe to!!!)  ► here https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCWcOwvblb4G3IHhZMJFJ5pA

(I was thinking of maybe doing a video adaption of the first season of Dead Detention with voice actors...more on that later.)

Goals for 2017

  • Reach 4,000 Newgrounds fans
  • Reach 1,000 twitter followers
  • Reach 1,000 YouTube subs...maybe...if I end up doing something with the old channel :b
  • Create my first release for the Apple and Google appstore
  • Immensely step up the visual quality and polish of my projects, while still retaining the messy, unprofessional aesthetic people seem to really like.

Exciting !!!

Anyway. I really hope you liked some of the things I made this year. I had some pretty cool little successes, as well as some failures, in 2016. Thank you for sticking with me through them. I get in my own way a lot, so I really appreciate people who have been around since last year.

I hope you have a great New Years, and a peaceful 2017.

Never stop creating. Never stop trying.

Jack.


My next visual novel...

2016-12-25 09:02:48 by JackAstral
Updated

...is called Phantom Reverse.

It's about a paranormal curse, and accepting your past.

It's 6 episodes long.

It'll be playable on mobile devices.

You'll be able to play as a male or female.

It's my best narrative yet, by far.

It'll have dialogue options, quick time events, minigames and a branching choice in the final chapter leading to two possible endings.

I'll try to upload episodes monthly, starting in January or maybe early February.

Once all are up, I'll compile them together into one big, ad free, complete game that'll be downloadable from itch.io, maybe with a version in the Apple and Google appstore.

Thanks for sticking with me for so long - I think this project will be my first big next step.

PS. I also wanted to just note that I decided to take down the #3.5 episode of the first season of Dead Detention - it was just really half assed and horrible. I'm not exactly proud of that first season, but that episode in particular I was kinda ashamed of.

New Time Line Website Page + More

Updated

Hey guysssss. I thought I'd get in a quick update post before the week ends. (I'm trying to write a post every week, if you haven't noticed !)

Next Projects

I'll be really swamped with Uni next week, but I have managed to plan out a bunch of plotlines, and finalise my release schedule. Chaos Eclipse: Chapter 2, Ponder and Chronicle Bulletin: After Story will all be up next month.

Timeline Web Page

I also created an official web page for the timeline I released a couple weeks ago. It might be worth bookmarking, as I'll continue to keep it updated going forward.

You can check it out here.

Survival Side Project

If you follow me on twitter, you'll know that I've been working on a survival/exploration side project in Game Maker for a little while. I'll be announcing the game's name + showing (extremely early) screenshots of it soon!

That's all for now really. Happy Halloween if you're into that kinda thing :-)

Double upload! The Shovel Sequel + Lots of Lore

2016-10-19 15:01:07 by JackAstral
Updated

<Scarce meme>

So I decide to dedicate a couple of hours tonight to put together two small projects.

1) Coffin Trail ► http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/682852

  • In this, you play as Michael from the 2nd episode of Chronicle Bulletin
  • You basically just wonder around a forest...though some of the stuff on the MC's phone is pretty cool. (A dude from Alula Falling has a tiny mention :0)

2) The Ritual ► http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/682870

  • This is a sequel to The Shovel, set a few weeks after

Both reveal lots of lore. 

They're nothing special -  again, they were only made in a really short amount of time. I'll be updating both in the near-ish future to add suggestions given by reviewers !

Next month though, I'll be uploading Chaos Eclipse Chapter 2 + A Chronicle Bulletin After Story to make up for it. I have some pretty cool ideas for them, so hopefully they turn out good !

Thanks ! Have a great Halloween !

-Jack

PS. I updated the timeline...
