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

Posted by hechaos - January 20th, 2009

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!

awesome! auto-fived from me!

Obama sucks.

lol, nice segway.

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]

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.

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 =(

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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 :(

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

Have ANYONE ever beaten this game?

The mighty hechaos rule!
