Dan The Man Stage 7

2013-05-15 21:18:52 by StudioJOHO

Hi All

This is the final stage for season 1 and a bit of a double episode. Those of you who have come along for the ride I hope you've enjoyed it.
A few comments thus far have intimated that this has just been one big ad for a game, which is understandable. I'm an animator, not a game maker, my main aim is to write and animate cool stories (esp Dan the man) as I love doing it. The game component arose as a way to possibly fund me/us to do it without using conventional advertising or charging to watch eps, we'll see if it works.

I've really found myself enjoying the process of making the game, and while doing so is FUCKING HARD I think it will be a cool experience. I thought animation was hard though...

So if the experiment pays off then heaps more eps to come, Josie will have a baby and all sorts of shit will go down between now and the FINAL STAGE.

Thanks for watching, and welcoming me to NG, and thanks to PBOT for the daily picks

ps, PC version will more than likely occur.
pps any fellow Curse Of The Azure Bonds addicts out there I hope you see my hat tip

So in the words of Howlin Pelle, 'i got good news and bad news, the bad news is we only got one song left to play. The good news is that it's fuckin awesome.'

Hi all,

This one's a change of pace from the previous few. I've had a long fascination with MMO's, esp for their possibilities for storytelling. I read and watch as much as I can get my hands on about them, (Play Money, Second Skin, The Guild, Ready Player One, Mogworld) as they just mix so many things that I'm interested in together.
'Make Love Not Warcraft' came along and really nailed how I felt these worlds could cross over into episodic animation with style.
So here's my contribution. (and don't worry DTM won't turn into a long excercise in speech bubble reading)

Theres a new Dan The Man Stage 5 just uploaded. Thanks for all the comments I appreciate it. This ep starts introducing the world a bit more and some of the other main characters.

A lighter story than previous eps, but still a good way to illustrate the concept of blowback.

Ghost and Goblins was one of my favourite games growing up as you can tell. As was the TMNT pen and paper game and the Palladium fantasy rpg, so for those wondering about the confusing mix of assault rifles and castles, there you go. No one got to tell me what to do on this project.

Enjoy
