Celebrate Obama's inauguration with me, lets blast some aliens!

2009-01-20 18:28:16 by hechaos

Morning all ! Congratulations to our American friends on a) the addition of Barack to the Whitehouse and b) the subraction of Dubya from the Whitehouse! I watched the speech live here in Sydney at 3.30am ... powerful and inspiring stuff.

Here's a game I've been sitting on for the last 18 months... I ended up shelving it for quite a while while I build Swords & Sandals Crusader and Swords & Sandals III ... in recent weeks I've come back to it just to finish it off ... introducing "Get Off My Planet"

Get Off My Planet

You'll notice the title screen features a character who looks suspiciously like Barack Obama... this is of course , a bit gratiutious of me but also , a bit of fun given I'm releasing the game today. Hell, who's to say Obama couldn't conquer the stars anyway. The whole presidential thing actually came about from the title, it's a pun on Harrison Ford's famous line in the movie "Air Force One".

Anyway, check out the game , it's a variation on the Tower Defence and City Building genres, it can be quite punishing but in my mind it's a lot of fun.

I usually get a lot of grief here on Newgrounds for not releasing free games - this one is 100% free, no demo, nothing. Have fun with it.

Next up , I'm really not sure. I think it will be another Swords and Sandals game but this will be quite different from the last few... no doubt it's also probably a year away :)

I welcome your thoughts! Cheers all!

What better way to celebrate anything than by blasting aliens!


2009-01-20 18:43:24

awesome! auto-fived from me!

Obama sucks.

Admittedly a bit of a cash-in on today's events, but my second choice was President Schwarzenegger and that was too cliche......haha

You should lay off the overdone muscle given to guys in S&S3. Skinny, Muscular, Fat. Just no. It needs to look particularly cartoonish, which is what I think the series once went for, and less like a feeble attempt at realism. Also, having everybody start off wearing underwear and, if they can scrape up money, a torn skirt is a bad idea.

Also, this game is winrar.

Is "misunderestimated" even a word?
[yay] Obama [/yay]

hechaos responds:

It's straight out of Prez Bush's playbook! :)

Hey man i like the style of the game, its a good mix of RTS and towers, i dont know if it was just me but i must of gotten a glich cause during the begining of the game my money disappeared and it just said NAN and i had like unlimited amounts of money so i buffed up early in the game and whooped some ass, still had fun.

Next game should be like the swords and sandals crusader but with better graphics, more troops, and it should be free.

hechaos responds:

Thinking I'll definitely do a sequel to Crusader at some point, likely this year. Agree about more troops, next game will prob be in actionscript 3 so I can have more stuff going on at once.

Sadly though, Swords & Sandals never gonna be a free series. In the words of Bush, "I'm working hard to put food on my family."

I wish Ron Paul was black, then he might have won =(


2009-01-21 03:13:01

man you need to make a walkthrough for this game its hard.


2009-01-21 10:36:29

Great fusion of two genres Tower Defence and City Building. This production is really huge man, I hope you get the front page for some weeks, some people will love this unique game.
I made a planet defense game not long ago, but I have to learn a lot until make a so deep and fun strategy title like yours.


2009-01-22 18:10:17

Love the new game

Hey, I recently wrote a review for this game. This is definitely one of my favorite games on NG. I started playing on regular, and I can't get very far. The waves are way too close together. I am just offering some constructive criticism, I am not trying to complain. I would suggest trying to re-even the time between waves.
EVERYTHING else in this game is great. Keep up the good work.


2009-01-25 07:03:36

Looked cool but I closed the window right when seeing the Obama gayness.


2009-01-25 07:53:16

i got to the wave when they started damaging stuff it was fun tho hard i got up to 10000 in total but i did spend but if i didnt spend id have that much.


2009-01-25 15:25:26

i think u should make a game with all ur ideas in it, thats what im doing in a story. its relly twisted.


2009-01-27 21:29:10

Im so close to loving this game.. i really hope you make a sequal and you balance it more... . Im sure you could do it.

I can see so much potential in this game its like ouch :(


2009-02-01 02:17:24

When do you gonna make your next project? Im like your big fan :)


2009-02-07 04:59:45

Have ANYONE ever beaten this game?


2009-02-12 08:57:50

The mighty hechaos rule!


2009-02-19 21:38:17

i got ideas about the sequel of swords and sandels

it should be like cursader

make a free full version and a premium full version

make custom armys, rulers, storys, and coat of arms and upload them on fizzy to share with eveyone in the world! (make ALOT for free, but MOST of it not)

more types of battle! (on free full, you get the 4 first ones, but in premium get them all!)

bigger world, i want more connits, islands and terrian like banana forest and dragon cove

summon gods themselfs in premium!

make it so you can join the fight

better grafics for premium

fullscreen for premium also

5 new armys to unlock in premium! but the others for free

i want city raiding, villige plundering and even disasters in the battlefeild like volcanos!

(sounding like leroy jenkins) MAKE YOUR OWN FARTPICKELLLLSSS!!!!!! l(lol)

go to heven and hell!

multipul endings! (3 for free, 6 for premiums)

find rare armor and weapons by digging

that is all, see ya laters

hechaos responds:

These are some cool ideas my friend, I'll definitely be looking at a Crusader sequel later this year. Going to build it in AS3 so I can have lots more troops moving around the screen and I'd like to totally rework the combat system.

Banana forest ...hehe..this is for the monkey army right? :)


2009-02-19 21:39:56

2009-02-24 18:17:35

I think your picture of emperor antares is pretty cool!


2009-02-24 18:19:20

I think kardonskull has good ideas, but it won't be easy to make it like that


2009-02-28 12:08:24

A good game. I finish this game.


2009-03-07 12:47:37
