I'm actually working on a flash project for school with someone else, but thought I'd share with people what I'm working on. I went to Germany last summer and had the chance to see the open airshow for Rattenfänger Hameln, otherwise known as the Pied Piper of Hameln in English. (It was entirely in German, but that was the fun part). It was inspiring enough that I wanted to make a flash game out of it, and that's how it ended up being my school flash project.
Basically, my project is a flash rhythm game which features the flute while going through the story itself.
Here's a demo of the rhythm game section.
I didn't do so well in it because the frame rate lagged while I was recording it. It normally runs just fine.
The final version that I'm submitting in class will only feature three songs as part of the story mode, and it's the only mode I'm going to be putting in that version, but I plan on releasing a more enhanced version with more features, including additional bonus tracks and multiple languages.
So, I'm going to allow people to make suggestions for bonus tracks--what do people want to hear? I'm considering adding "The Place I'll Return to Someday" from FFIX and Greensleeves, and perhaps a few others. Here's a few I'm including:
Thema - SaGa Frontier II
Delightful Spekkio - Crono Trigger
Kalida's Deep Sleep - Whispered World
If you've never heard of these, just look them up on Youtube.
I'm also using a few pieces from the audio portal here on Newgrounds.
Additionally, if you like making music, you can also use this opportunity to create flute specific pieces for it if you'd like.
And I realize there are synchronization issues between Mac and Windows, even though I'm using Tweenlite. If anyone has any suggestions on how to resolve those issues, or at least minimize them, please advise. I'm all ears.
I'm well aware it's Tom Fulp's birthday today, but even more importantly, it's also another special person's birthday today--namely, Karl Friedrich Gauss, one of the three greatest mathematicians in history. He's been called "Princeps Mathematicorum", or the prince of mathematics, and made numerous math contributions.
Here are some special items:
A character organizer made in flash: (it's not epic enough for Newgrounds, so I didn't upload it here.)
I'm making a new flash movie, which won't be made into a series. It's just a "short", experimental movie with some more action, since some people here think I don't know how to do any of those things. Plotwise, it won't be quite like the Octahedron/Tesseract series, so it's not really meant to be deep or anything. If you see anything interesting though, that would be nice.
Sorry if I don't seem to be doing much, but this might take some time, considering also that I'm busy with other stuff.
It probably won't be more than 5 minutes long.
For those who are wondering about whether or not I'm going to be starting the sequel, well, I'm working on it. Since the Alphas are still down, I'll post a screenshot and the first part of "The Tesseract". The preview won't have any sound though, and most of the animations aren't smoothened out just yet--they will be in due time.
As far as I can tell, The Tesseract will have more mathematical (possibly historical) references, but it's still not necessary to have an abudance of knowledge on mathematics to understand what's going on; it's the same wordless interaction style as in the Octahedron. If you did know more about math or math history though, you'll probably be able to see the references and enjoy it more.
New Character Feature: The new character I'm adding is the mathematician's friend, another fellow mathematician. More on him later.
I know I don't seem to be doing much, but I've finally found an idea for a flash animation that is both simpler and possibly easier to animate than the last one I did. It probably won't be quite the same either, but it's a bit more original, and if people are interested enough, I may post more information on it.
