Tumblr Purge

So, it has happened. Tumblr had a /great/ idea to help make tumblr better. Free it of Porn bots that retweeted posts that had a link leading off the site to who knows where. You might think, “Oh! this sounds great. No more porn bots. ^^”

The Idea sound ok on paper. And if this was Tumblr before Yahoo took over, then it would have been better. But good old Yahoo does not like NSFW on anything they own.. So now picture them getting rid of porn bots. But Yahoo having a hand in the pot.

The result was less then perfect. Rather then purging all the porn bots as planned. A good number of NSFW Artists have been purged, and even blogs that don’t show porn or are safe to view have also been hit.

And they managed to take down some porn bots  that posted awful content but there are more out there, this did more harm then good.  Porn bots are still running wild, luring poor souls to who knows where…

As of now, searching for blog posts on Tumblr’s search no longer works at the moment. So, If you planned on looking for a blog or looking for a good post. I hope you can find them by post tags.

But this goes to show how much Tumblr has changed for the worst. Your blog can now just be wiped out cause Tumblr said so, for no real reason.. And I loved tumblr but what is the point when being there, if the following happens.

  1. Your blog no longer shows up in tumblr search
  2. Your tumblr blog getting wiped cause why not?

I know some tumblr users love tumblr but It’s not worth it when anything can happen. I also know if your blog got deleted unfairly, you can email tumblr.. But is it worth it with the current state of the site?

I have a blog on Tumblr but because the issues that happened in the last few days. My tumblr site is just hidden from anyone unless the know my name or follow me..


And cause of this Tumblr purge the NSFW artists have now been moving over to Newgrounds. it’s all I wanted to say on this matter.

Kyle & Lucy: Wonderworld

Today. I will be looking at Kyle & Lucy: Wonderworld.

Story: Lucy & Kyle went to go watch the shooting stars from the great ruins, as they have a better view from there. The lad, Kyle heard of unknown legends of the ruins till now he may believe they are true. A bright light catches the attention of Kyle and Lucy.

Making Lucy reach for the odd light while doing so. She was able to reach over the mountains that were far away, telling Kyle this, he wants to see as well, causing them to fall over and lose her balance by reaching too far. Kyle tried to save her but ended up getting dragged down with her into a new world.

The game is pretty nice. It feels like a Sonic game but the music gives off a Freedom Planet vibe, that’s not a bad thing. It feel great to play the game, and while the game only has 3 stages, it does theme quite well and gives the player a lot to do and explore.

Your tutorial level is Limestone Lagoon. This stage will help you understand the moveset, wall jump and wall dash to water physics, and normal enemies, and hazards. If you explore well, you will even find secrets hidden in the area. This is the first stage you get to play when you start the demo. Can’t miss it.

There is a hub world, akin to Sonic advance 3’s hub but much better in Kyle and Lucy: WonderWorld. This hub world houses the final two stages. Mystic Garden is your hub world.

Mystic Garden 1 is your first real level that will put what learned to the test. Explore well. Be sure to check high and low for the green orb. This is a pretty fun stage to play. I had fun playing it.

Robot Roundup is a mission based stage where you need to find 8 robots. But no worries. You get a hint system. The closer you are to the enemy the “!” will go from Green to red. Red meaning you are close to the target. And Green meaning you are far from it.

I should also bring up. When you make a save file, you can play as Kyle or Lucy when loading the save.

Lucy has a double jump that is useful.And Kyle has features that remind me of Sonic but he has somewhat of a forward dash to gain speed. While there are no lives, there is a health bar, take 4 hits and you are done.

Welcome to the end

Kyle and Lucy: Wonderworld is a fun demo that is worth playing. It has a lot of promise and this game can turn into something wonderful. The game looks and feels great. The music is amazing, it’s like a mix of Freedom planet/Sonic/Ristar. I wish the team the best of luck, and I hope to see the game at the next sage

Game engine update

So, as you know. I am working on a new game. And this game went from being small to my passion project. I want to try to make some Sonic fan games that are ok. I am still learning but I have the gist on how to make a fan game.

These last few days, I been saying I was looking at guides on how to make a Sonic game . I am learning and getting some ideas. I found the Sonic Worlds guide for 0.5.

And while It may not be useful to my engine. I learned about using Single objects to hold values for a character or Id for a player

This is something I can use for future games to speed up the progress of making games. :3

This will make some thing I do the long way quicker. And this is rad. I am learning to set these values to the right variables, and It’s fun. I can give everyone the same Values and If their ID matches, then they get the the controls that are meant for them.

UPDATE


So. Because of these new way of coding. The Alpha debug build has been delayed to rework on the game’s engine and apply what I learned to the engine and make something even better (I aim to, I hope).

I will have to say that in a month, I should have everything working in the new engine, assuming if things goes as planned

So here is the breakdown.

A month to get everything ported into my new engine and working well

Another month to Add some new things to said engine

A few days to 2 weeks to make sure things are stable

If all of this goes without a road bump… I can say a Alpha demo can be out somewhere between December 2018 or Somewhere in the start of 2019

I hope you understand and thanks for reading. :3

Keep up with the project: https://trello.com/b/u5tblqYK/current-fan-game-project
