This is a blog post. To read the original post, please click here »



Here's the much-delayed next Game Dungeon episode! Like Realms of The Haunting, this is another game I just sort of took a guess on it being a good candidate for the show, and it certainly was. It's probably a better choice for Game Dungeon than any other RTS I can think of offhand. I really was impressed with how the gameplay managed to convey the savagery of war, despite its misleading appearance. While I have many other videos I'd like to get to, I'm going to go dark for a little while so I can make time to work on the movie, I don't anticipate resuming work on regular ones until at least 1-2 weeks. If I'm lucky, I'll have another video late this month. If not, then they'll be more coming for March.

Best stinger ever.

The cute presentation, attention to detail, and violence remind me a little of Trouble for Trumpets.

I'd like to strongly suggest you try Eversion out if you haven't already. It's not a huge time investment; I got all three endings in 2 hours. I think you'll see why I think it's appropriate for you. There's a free version and an enhanced version on steam if you want to support the developer.

Okay, a real-time strategy, you say?
Maybe I should try it out myself. Only problem is finding it, though. And figuring out whether it's compatible

The link to it is in the description. I had the best luck using DXWnd to run it with a frame time limit of 50ms.

Oh, thanks. I'll try that
Also great episode, I enjoyed it. The moment with that sun level, especially, and the stinger too

So, how'd you beat that sun level? Just tell me here - I won't tell, I promise! :P

I screen capped all the maps and put them in a gimp save file. Here it is for those who want to try it out like a puzzle.

Ross probably delayed the episode because he was stuck on the desert level.

He wanted to give up at every misstep, but his indomitable inner baldness prevailed.

(that's my head canon)

Did the series lose traction? I don't think these videos are getting as many views as they used to.

I swear the older videos had way more views too, maybe I'm just seeing things.

Could you upload it somewhere else? Mediafire now opens malware related ads automatically, it also opens nasty malware in new tabs when you download things. I would upload it on Google Drive instead.

I had the same thought. He probably didn't manage to cheat so he just, tried to actually beat it.

I honestly just learned how to memory hack games by myself, it took a little bit but being able to give myself 10,000,000$ on any game, infinite ammo and other stuff made what I thought were terrible games suddenly extremelly enjoyable. I like using this thing.

There's a tiny learning curve but it quite honestly is so worth it. I don't like Cheat Engine and this is a neat open source alternative, if I could I would give a few $$$ to the guy who made it.

This was so worth the wait Ross. I had never even heard about this game before your video, and THIS is what I love about Game Dungeon. You're almost every episode showing me something really good and new to me.

It has to do with the irregular GD posts. Ross is trying to put as much effort into The Movie as physically possible. This means he can't give The Movie as much attention without compromising on GD and vice versa. For the sake of The Movie he's chosen to compromise on GD. This means fewer GD videos less often which in turn means less viewers as there are now less new GD videos to watch.

It has also been long enough since the last new GD that the average new person could conceivably believe Ross stopped doing GD or just got sick of his irregular video schedule. However Ross's more dedicated fans are probably still there though.

Wow, I feel like I just gave a lecture on the economy of focused effort and video viewing. I'm not blaming Ross just to be clear. He's welcome to do whatever he wants. I just wanted to point out the current state of things since you seemed confused.

I'm going to get the subtitles for this out as fast as I possibly can (hope to have it out sometime tomorrow) so I can input as much work as I can into helping Ross with The Movie!

Busy, busy, busy!

Can someone tell me what movie this chunk was from? (Yes I know that the movies were listed in the credits, but there are 5 of them and shamefully I didn't watch either one). I'm kinda missing the joke here.

It has to do with the irregular GD posts.

Actually it's just Google changing the YouTube's view calculation algorithm. It's been observed several times how the reported amount of views sometimes decreases (!), sometimes is lower than the sum of upvotes and downvotes (!), and other similar shenanigans.

Yay, bald pride! Although I've been letting my hair grow out recently, but I still feel like a baldie inside.
I'm considering getting the PS1 version of this, it certainly loks really nice and I like RTS games.

I have placed them all side-by-side in a single image rather than the layers in the XCF file.

Spoiler: show
