New game on the way. Then Crypt Shyfter

Posted by Funkmachine - June 25th, 2020

I have been working for just about half a year now on a new shmup game with AtomicSlug! Its really starting to take shape now and I am pumped to finish the game off strong. Ive taken to just doing the coding this time, and am leaving the design and art up to Slug because I always hate my own Art. so its nice to have someone else with actual talent to those things for me lol.

Side note, I have been looking for kungfuspacebarbarian lately because I want to create another text adventure, but I cannot find him. His games and content is all gone from the web, wiped. but I loved this games and his attitude, so im going to try and carry on his epic enthusiasm. @KungFuSpaceBarbarian if you are out there man, DM me! i want to work with you again.

I have been scraping all of the content he shared with me, trying to build up some canon from his games. I may have to hit up some of the people he chatted with in the past to work as much of this out as I can.

Once I gather up the information I need, I may try to make another crypt shyfter by myself, in his great honor :D

I've tried to reach him in the past. I even went through the wayback machine to try links he once had on his page. All of it has led to dead ends. I don't even care if he ever makes new content again. I just kinda wanted to know he was doing alright, especially now. The last time I shared PMs with him was nearly a year ago.

August 6: "I eat pennies for breakfast. Also, I want you to know I missed you the most <3
But seriously, doing great man. The move was a success and I didn't get fired from my job (yet) so that's good. I'm hoping to be back on here for a while!
How's everything with you?"

August 7: "What are you playing right now? The last new game I played was Spiderman on the PS4 and I enjoyed that a lot more than I thought it would. Big improvement from the PS1 Spiderman I used to play haha. Lately I've been going back to starcraft and playing custom matches though :p
Do some light stretching to work out that soreness!"

That was it. He mentioned nothing about disappearing the way he did and I find that worrisome. I really do hope @KungFuSpaceBarbarian is alive, well, and within arm's reach of a hot slice of fresh pizza at all times.

@Phronemophobia Yeah its the same for me, its not about new content, he is a great guy and I just wanted to talk to him again. When his discord server disappeared all of our conversations went with it.

Last communication I had with his was that he was moving across the US and would be offline for a bit during the move, so it was radio silence for a while. Then the great purge happened :/

I know he removed some of his content in the past due, but they usually came back after a few days. And I know he did media fasting in the past also, I remember a time when he was trying to stay off newgrounds etc. I suppose he struggled a bit with confidence in his content. Which always seemed crazy to me because people love his work. Maybe he is happier being off the internet, and maybe his personal life and relationships are better as a result, if that's the case then I don't mind him vanishing as long as he is happier for it.

Still, I hope he doesn't mind me using his IP for a few games! People need crypt shyfter! I guess he will have to contact me to say otherwise muhahahahaa.

long story short, just hoping he's doing great!
