Hi all,

It's been a busy couple of months for me, and there's no light at the end of the tunnel yet, so I've made a game that I hope will keep you and your friends busy for a while:

http://www.matazone.co.uk/animpages/the_hedgehog_game.html

I'm also running desperately out of money at the moment (it's a long, complicated, and not very interesting story involving international shipping and advanced screen-printing techniques) so I'm also selling a painting I've done:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...item=7303961289

As well as the painting, I'm also selling lots of my VHS films:

http://search.ebay.co.uk/_W0QQsassZmatazone

Go into a consumption frenzy!

Anyway, 'hope you like the new game, tomorrow I'm going to be hitting the books again to work on a new chapter of my thesis, this one is on the exciting topic of William Gibson's use of authenticity in his novels. Doesn't the mere thought set your mind racing? No? I don't blame you! I'm already nearly a month behind on starting it because I've been working on this game. Oops!

As usual, if any of these links aren't working then use the ones on the main page http://www.matazone.co.uk/theotherside.html

Also, if you have friends that will like the game, my site, my painting, or my videos then please pass the link along; everything helps at the moment!

'Till next time, have fun,

Mata

Next time: Possibly new Mittens, maybe a new Snaffleburger. We'll see, but don't hold your breath!

I didnt bother to read the rules, and I'm a little drunk so it took me a while to learn what to do, but its a great game. Things started moving a little too quickly for me on around level 10.

Student loan forms were invented by Satan to erode the souls of anyone who is wishing to better themselves.

Cars are the bane of all hedgehogs (except those that don't live near roads, I guess). I do also think that they're not helping society and the world much, but they are probably a necessary evil for the moment.

Hey Hey! Funny game, with an awe-inspiring ending biggrin.gif

I got half way, and then my mouse's batteries ran out. So, after refuelling, I played for the second time from the start again - and won! Woohoo.

I loved all the homages to other animations (Mittens, Clowns, other ones I can't remember, etc).

Nice work, matey!

TIP: There's a couple of levels where you can just slide across the very bottom of the level, moving underneath all the obstacles. Teehee. It's not cheating, really it isn't!

No, that's not really cheating, because you have to be quite accurate to get there in the first place, and secondly because you're only cheating yourself smile.gif

I think my personal favourite level is 44, I think it's just a very elegant level design. In fact I think that the final ten levels are the best out of the lot.

I've tried to make it as web friendly as possible, with the reset button and the passwords, and I'm really very pleased with it.

Novander: Yes, now you mention it I think they did have the same username as you. That's a conincidence isn't it.. huh.gif

Pure coincidence. Lucky guess on my part, really.

I tried again this morning* and managed to get a few levels further.

/agree
/all of it

This game deffinitely wasn't made for someone playing with a laptop-type setup (it's been impossible for me to make it past the 13th or 14th or so level with my power-nipple), but I enjoyed every level I played immensely! I shall have to jump on Randy's computer later or pull out my mouse to see the ending!

Thanks!

The levels started off really quick to make, I think I did eight in about 90 minutes, but by the end they were taking ages. To put it another way, I started the Lord of the Rings trilogy when I started making levels, and I had finished that and watched another two films by the time the levels were finished.

Sorry Fey, the game has a heavy bias towards mouse users!

I'm glad people like the ending. It's the happiest ending I've given any of the things on The Other Side. I just felt that it suited the mood of the game. I did have a far more destructive ending in mind, but this one took me on the spur of the moment, and I've found it's usually wise to listen to those voices.

Perhaps I should be worried that the voices usually tell me really messed up endings for things...
