Drunken Masters!?!?!?

2008-03-05 21:46:50 by JohnnySedona

Drunken Masters was finally approved for release, and it just passed judgment. God damn, I feel like I just railed 10 lines of blow.

Whether you've been keeping track or not, the production was fuckin intimidating: 6 months of work, 7 days a week, 10 hours a day. 2500 symbols, too many lines of code to count. And I managed to squeeze that bitch into 7mb. I'm pretty impressed with myself.

If you haven't played it yet and you've got some serious time to kill (it's fuckin huge), go check it out.

If you have played it, and you're one of the people that helped bump that score up past 4.20, you really made all those long nights of coding worthwhile. Seriously, this game took a lot out of me, financially, emotionally, and physically. It's so fuckin nice to have it out on its own and doing well.

Hope you guys have as much fun playing it as I did making it. If you REALLY like it, hit www.availds.com for more good Drunken Masters stuff.

So what's next? For the time being, I'll be cleaning up the Deluxe edition of the game so I can squeeze a little more rent money out of this baby before I put the source files away. Then I'm thinking about a new game... with dragons in it. OoOoOoOo. That's all I'm gonna say for now, but it'll be an action/shoot-em-up kind of deal. Probably. I'd like to keep pushing the envelope, so hopefully it'll be another good one.

Either way, it's gotta be a little smaller than this. I almost went to prison for this game. I'll write up the whole story for the website, but it's a pretty good one.

Here's some Drunken Masters trivia for you:

does the deluxe version work with macs?

JohnnySedona responds:

Absolutely. It'll play in the standalone flash player (available for free from Adobe), or in your browser. I'm just putting some of the finishing touches on it now, actually...

awsome, i'll have to check that out!

This game is great. I just wish I had paypal to purchase it with. :(

JohnnySedona responds:

I'll come up with a different system soon- PayPal's really not giving me a good deal right now. Check back in a week or so, and I'll probably have something set up for you.

I'm to lazy to ask frank so i'll ask you, about how many people have ordered the deluxe version now?

JohnnySedona responds:

Probably just as well- nobody's asked Frank shit. There are 10 pre-orders right now, about 30 hours and 4,250 plays in. I haven't done the math yet, but things look good. Now if only Paypal wasn't taking 33 cents for every order...

Stupid game making me stupidly not do my stupid work, argh!
To save you from having to work out the math yourself, I've calculated that at the current conversion rate of 0.25% at $1.50, you should bring in $3,750 per million plays. Subtracting a 30c per dollar for Paypal (bastards) still leaves you with a tasy $3,000. You could well be onto a winner here mate - keep us updated!

JohnnySedona responds:

Nice, thanks Jack. I think I might have overestimated the number of purchases per thousand (I thought the game had like 4,000 hits yesterday, but when I saw the MochiBot stats last night, it was more like 90,000), Hopefully sales will pick up when the Deluxe edition is finished and readily available.

I have to say...kick ass game mate.

(Updated ) JohnnySedona responds:

Hey, long time no see, buddy. I'm glad you like it. If it hadn't been for support from guys like you during the start of my game-making career, this one probably never would have happened. Cheers!

that chick is hot

JohnnySedona responds:

Carmella DeCesare, the model for April Showers. She's smoking hot.

That game is freakin awsome! I loved it! You doing any other work soon?

JohnnySedona responds:

I'm working on something new, but it'll be a little simpler than Drunken Masters. It's too soon to say for sure, but I'll have some screenshots with more info as the game develops.

Really nice game, would buy it but parents dont like stuff over internet lol

(Updated ) JohnnySedona responds:

Mine didn't either. At least they're letting you play a game that takes place in a bar. If my kids ever did that, I'd whoop their asses.
