Killego Success!

Killego has been a success!

Believe it or not, this was a small project, made in the time span of a week, and turned out to be a big hit! Picture after picture, each one taken as carefully as possible, to be merged with the power of Flash to create, what seems to be, a very original/unique game!

It's been under a week and I have received over 80,000 views, was 6th in the daily top 5 and 11th in the weekly top... whatever. Bear in mind that this is my first submission!

Thank you all for your support in all of this, now to let you in on a little news, I have been thinking whether or not to create a bigger, better, longer and more challenging sequel to this game... it has the originality... now it just needs the game play. Although there is one problem...

Killego (1) was a small game as most of you have noticed, now Tom letting me off with 16MB is one thing, but if I add all the features everyone is wanting(at least the good features) to the sequel. This might reach over 100MB, maybe even more. The problem I am haunted by is file size.

File size is a bad boy when it comes to this type of game. Each picture has to be taken seperately and added individually to the Flash. This results in storage space and bandwidth being wasted... so my only solution is call upon experienced users of Flash bitmaps/importing images into Flash, to help me with reducing file size as much as possible without losing any vital quality.

If you feel you can help, then feel free to send a private message through Newgrounds, and I will reply with IM details (Please ensure you have Windows Live Messenger/MSN Messenger installed) to allow us speak with each other.

Many thanks for your support and encouragement,
Regards,

That's really great! No wonder Killego was a success, i even love it myself! Keep it up, Lego are loads of fun. I'd really want to see a sequel.

It's also really hard to believe that you had created Killlego in one week! I mean, with over 90k pictures, it must have been really hard! Good job! I really like your faith into making unique submissions!

no wonder this game is fun! the stop motion is great. next game,make a boss so large, you have to take a long time to kill it! but it is hard to die. make it 50 health next time. and have more enemys pop out. those are great ideas, huh? try them out, and you might get the best game ever!

Blood, plz? Plus, try multiple levels, instead of a repetitive corridor.

why don't yu just compress the images?

xLite responds:

It never crossed my mind. Flash JPEG compression reduces little to nothing from the filesize. I just need to change .jpg quality to 50 when i'm taking the photos. (50 quality looks exactly the same from my point of view and removes almost 170kb from the picture. :)

when do you estimate killego 2 will be realesed? I assume its gonna take longer then killego 1, based on all the stuff you add to make it better.

xLite responds:

No date will be set unless I am absolutely sure it will be ready for that day. Visit www.calumscott.com for updates!

the game is good but your humour...is lacking. also, the little tutorial messages can be pretty annoying when you already know what to do and while you're doing it you're wasting bullets just to find out that you had to read it first, and just to find out that you have to do what you already were planning to do. especially the barrel part.
