AethosGames's News


So I made this a while ago. But I don't update newgrounds very often, so you probably didn't know about it. Now that you know about it, you may not care. If you do care, go read it please!

It has stuff about stuff that I am doing, and I update it far more often than I update either my main site or newgrounds. Go read please. Also, Revert to Growth 2 should be coming out this week sometime.



So the sponsorship process is taking forever. I'm just as upset as you are, but here's the game's trailer so that you can wish you could play it even more:

Epic Trailer of Glory

I honestly have no idea about when the game will be released, shouldn't be more than two months from now, but that's not really ideal.

Also, hard at work on a couple of games right now. I have a little project I am working on now that's a business/world domination hybrid with zombies! I'll be looking for a pixel artist for that one soon, so PM me if you are interested.

'Project Crystal' is coming along well, but I've decided to ditch the codename for the actual name, which is 'Jing'. MindChamber and I are hard at work on that one, its gonna be one of the greatest flash games of all time! A big shout out to MindChamber for being amazing.

And that's all the news I have right now. I'll start posting more often once I'm not so busy juggling three games around.



Revert to Growth 2 is finally finished! Man that took a really long time.

Well it was worth it for sure, and here are some screenshots to prove it!

Also, I am going to go ahead and announce the development of my next game!

MindChamber and I are collaborating on a really neat game. Let's call it "Project Crystal" for now. The game is still in its infancy and it's concept is pretty top secret >:D

It's going to be a pretty unique action platformer, and that's all I can say about it for now. Actually, you probably won't get to see much of it until its basically done. I'm such a tease.

Anyways, look forward to Revert to Growth 2 being released sometime within the next few months! Here's a random picture, because that seems to be the rage with news posts nowadays.

Revert to Growth 2 and New Game Announcement!!!



Hello my fellow newgrounders!

I am working on a presentation for school titled "The guide to becoming a successful politician". I am looking for a voice actor willing to do a few lines for me as a favor.

The presentation is my final assignment for my advanced english composition class, the theme of the paper being persuasion using humor. The thing I will need a voice actor for is the administration of the 'Political Aptitude Test', the line I need will read something like this:

"You are about to take the Political Aptitude Test. This test is designed to analyse your disposition towards political philosophies. The Political Aptitude Test is sponsored by big tobacco."

The voice I want will sound something like the announcer at the beginning of Portal 2(Like this)

Oh, also Revert to Growth 2 is done with the exception of music. Still waiting on that.



So, I threw this gameplay demo trailer or something. The game is epic so you should watch. Don't mind the shitty screen transitions.

Also, the facepalm gaming charity event of great destiny went very well! I ended up donating $175 to charity and also got to watch some people suffer at the hands of [Visible] III's cruel cruel gauntlet mode. It was good times all around.

Now watch the trailer. I'm totally serious.


facepalm!

Yes, thats right!

As the first major act of Aethos Games' charity operations, we are teaming up with Pixelante Game Studios (the developer of Hunted Forever, one of my all time favorite games).

He has set up a charity event called the Facepalm Gaming Marathon!!!! (best name ever) where him and his friends will play insanely hard platformers for hours while you watch them in their never-ending torture! This has amazingly epic idea written all over it!

The more you donate to charity, the longer they play, and the longer they suffer endlessly! It's win win for everyone!

I will not only be contributing $100 to the charity event, but I am also contributing an insanely hard platformer ([Visible] III gauntlet mode ftw!!!)

There are many deals on the site for charity, and you can land a sweet game while you are at it! Almost all of the packages include a copy of Pixelante's upcoming game "Fowl Space". If you are a flash game developer, Twune is having an awesome custom music sale! Just use the code FACEPALM at checkout. You will get a 50% discount on custom music and $25 will be donated to charity.

If you are a little strapped for cash, you can still help out the charity event! You can tweet @FacepalmCharity or like them on facebook!

Also, fire is cool.

facepalm!


Aethos Games: Going Charitable!

I am honored to announce that starting with my next game, Revert to Growth 2, Aethos Games will be donating 10% of all in-game ad revenue to charity!

I will also be donating 10% of the adsense revenue of aethosgames.com and of 10% of the revenue generated by my upcoming Blackberry Playbook game Raptor Fruit Rush!!!

I have a few charities in mind, such as The Red Cross for the Japan Relief effort, Scholarship America, and probably Child's Play as well. However I want to get the input of my players and see what charities they would like to see donated to! Feel free to throw some suggestions at me!

Also, I am running a campaign on aethosgames.com for beta testers! If you are one of the top 5 fans on my site by March 31st, you will be invited to beta test for Aethos Games! Revert to Growth 2 is coming along well, and you'll have the chance to play it before anyone else! If you missed the gameplay demo last time, then check it out on youtube: Revert to Growth 2 gameplay demo

I will try to have a new gameplay demo up by the end of the weekend, depending on how soon I get the last environment programmed into the engine.

Growin' some stuff!!!

Yep, for the past couple weeks we've been working on Revert to Growth 2!!!

The game is already far beyond what the first one was and could be ready for release in a couple of weeks! That is, if we weren't making it 5x more epic than the first!!!

JordanD, DVGMusic Studios (the musical mind behind Company of Myself), and myself are going all out and making this game incredible! We have one out of the three environment types finished (The Forest) and still have 2 left to go (which will remain rather mysterious until the next couple gameplay demos).

The game has a couple new surprises in store for you, including a super nifty level editor that will allow you to share your levels with other Revert to Growth lovers online, and each environment will have unique gameplay components and slightly varying genre shifts! I threw together a couple of demo levels to show you all the gameplay and the shiny new editor (which admittedly isnt aesthetically shiny *yet*, but the functionality makes it so much easier to build and share levels).

Anyways, without further adeu:


I ate PsyFlash!!!

PsyFlash Game Studios has rebranded to Aethos Games!!! At this point you probably have one of several reactions:

1) "Who the f**k is PsyFlash?"

-If you fall in this category, then everything is mostly a-ok. It's sad that you didn't know about my games, but you can get used to the new brand that much easier when we release some epic stuff! Also, go check out my games here: Aethos' Flash Games

2) "Good, Psyflash was a stupid name anyways"

-If you fall in this category, then everything is also a-ok. I like the new brand a lot, so I'm glad you do too!

3) "But I liked Psyflash... :'c "

-If you fall into this category, then I am sorry. But the bright side is that you will probably get used to it and even grow attached to this new brand. The splash screen is sooooooooo much cooler anyways.

4) "Did... did Psyflash taste good?"

-Yup, like chicken.

5) "I am extremely indifferent"

-See #1

All (lame) joking aside, thanks for your support and I hope you continue to support Aethos Games!!!

And seriously, go play [Visible] III, its very lonely.


Medals and victory!!!

[Visible] III now has medals! GO PLAY IT NAO PLZ!!!

Also, thanks to everyone who has made [Visible] III the success that it has been. Its recently accumulated 6.5 million plays across the internet and its still receiving about 20k plays a day.

Woot! I mentioned medals right?

Sneak peak kind of?
