Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So, after seeing the in-game intros and the way in which the game manages to use Flash-driven 2D customizable characters on CUTSCENES (best feature in the game by far, IMO. It's genius. I can only imagin how hard that is to pull off) I was wondering how viable a Penny Arcade series is.
Flash-made feature films are starting to appear in the market, and the audience for adult-oriented animated comedy has only grown in the past years, so there is a market.
In fact, after playing some of the game, I could very well give up all that interaction nonsense and just watch a Startling Developments series for half an hour. Make it six hours of that and I'll happily pay twice the cost of the game for a DVD season box set. Can you picture that? Ron Gilbert, Gabe and Tycho teaming up for a weelky show of animated comedy?
Scott Kurtz ("The horror, the horror!" Bet he never gets THAT), over at PVP is trying to lift a similar effort off the ground by muscling through it himself with one or two animators (which I think is crazy and suicidal), but it'd be a nice spinoff bonus if the eps of the game do fine, even if it was solely distributed through the same online channels the game is.
Opinions? Votes for or against? Reasons why this is crazy and it'd never happen?
