Very dumb, terrible games meant to emulate early 2000s Newgrounds games. I'm finally working on something that is actually good though...follow me on twitter to see it !!! twitter.com/jackastral

<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...

Hey guyssssssssssssssssssssssssss I just thought I should post a little update because I haven't really uploaded anything for a while.

So :

  • Originally I was planning to do 2-3 projects for Halloween, but I just don't think I'll have the time. I legit have 8 big things due within the next 4 weeks for Uni :S So apologies in advance if I don't manage to upload this month...
  • After that, I'll be releasing a game called "Ponder" in November, based on responses I recieve from this google form. There have been some pretty great responses, but I have to rewrite just about all of them to improve the writing and make them more cohesive. It's kinda fun to do though - because I have a very particular style and use a lot of the same motifs, it feels fresh and new to write from someone else's perspective. FUN
  • THEN I'll be finishing Chaos Eclipse with the final 2 chapters.
  • Finally, in December I'll be doing a Christmas special.

Tl;dr;

  • Maybe won't upload anything this month, because of uni work.
  • Will upload a game based on that Google form in November + the other two parts to Chaos Elipse

After that, I'll be posting my annual game reel for 2016. I think last year's was really lame, so I'll be putting way more work into this one.

ALSO I changed my username to JackAstral. "08jackt" was always suppose to be a placeholder, but I never came up with a proper one, so that's cool !

Thanks ! I hope you have a greatttttttttttt week ~

<3

PS. For lore peeps - I added to the timeline a little bit.

So I'm working on this little browser game project...

If you answer this two question form, your answer will probably be featured in it.

Thanks :)

Hey guys,

Peepz have been wondering what my next releases will be, so I decided to just post my current plan for the rest of this year. Sorry for the lack of communcation and consistant upload times...hopefully this post will answer some of your questions... :-)

This month, I'm hoping to upload:

  • Chaos Eclipse: Chapter 1
  • Dead Detention 2 After Story

Next month, for Halloween, you can expect:

  • A sequel to The Shovel called "The Ritual"
  • A game about Sora escaping Zone Zero, set between Chronicle Bulletin and the Dead Detention 2 finale, called "Fleeing Shadows"

In November:

  • Chaos Eclipse: Chapter 2
  • Chaos Eclipse: Chapter 3

Finally, in December:

  • Some kind of Christmas Special

Next year I'm making big changes to how I go about things. I'll be talking about these changes, along with announcing my first project of next year, closer to New Years. (Hint: quality > quantity.)

I have 3 stories I want to tell next year...one of which is a sequel to Alula Falling.

Thank you to those who have stuck by me, and those that are just discovering my creations now. It's really cool to have so many people care about the things I create...I'm forever grateful.

-Jack

Starting 3 series at once was not a good idea...lol


Posted by JackAstral - July 25th, 2016


Hey guys!

So I just wanted to quickly let you know that I've recently started working on a Chaos Girl sequel called Chaos Eclipse. It's super dark, with wayyy better art and a stronger story. I'm really happy with what I have planned for it.

I know I promised to make this project ages ago, but I just couldn't find the time while also balancing Alula Falling, Dead Detention 2 and Chronicle Bulletin

It'll be released as one-full game, with 3 chapters, rather than being split up into parts. So hopefully it does well!

Once this project is finished, I'll be uploading the last 2 episodes of Chronicle Bulletin, as well as the Dead Detention 2 After Story episode

And then...well, I'm not sure. It'll depend on how well those projects do :B

I really like making stuff in flash, but I kinda feel like I need to move on soon and make something large scale...like, a proper actual release...I dunno...

Anywayyyyyyyyyyyyyy

That's about it, thanks !

-Jack

Hey guys, I'm just quickly making this post to let you all know that I've recently updated the previous 3 episodes of chronicle bulletin. They only feature small tweaks, but it might be a good idea to replay these updated versions so the final episode will make more sense.

Sorry about that - I kinda dropped the ball on this series. I think it's in a good place now, though!

While each episode will still tell a small "monster of the week" type story, they'll be more tightly connected to the series' narrative. Then in the final episode, they'll all come together and build towards the series' conclusion.

Episode 4 is going to be up this month, I hope!

Over half a year later! Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

I hope you liked it (  ゚,_ゝ゚)

Check out the finale here ►http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/677775
You can check out all the episodes here ► http://www.boxrocketgames.com/dd2-next-episode.html

Thanks!

There'll be an After Story episode later this year.

ALSO ► There won't be a season 3 per se, but a grown up Max, aged 27, will be the main character of a new series that'll be extremely dark in tone. News on that later!

Update: Roles have been cast.

-----------

Hey guys sooo I started working on a little project today, and I need both a male and a female voice actor.

The female's part is only around 40 words, while the male's is around 70 - so there's not very much.

The parts are emotive and kinda sad, but not overly depressing or anything. The story's kinda uplifting in a way

If you're interested and able to do the parts super fast (like, within a few days), please PM me with an example of your voice / reel and I'll send you the script if I decide to go with you

You'll each get 25% rev share, and I'll promote your twitter/newgrounds/whatever on the loading screen + ending screen

Thanks!
