Topic: General Gaming / AdultSwimGames - Wtf?

I think the three big reasons why people rate their games low are these:

1: They don’t feel like games, they just don’t have the gameplay that other games have. Most of them are so gimmiky.

2: Their shows have 2 year old humor, and judging by the games i’ve played by them their games also.

3: They have offended alot of people (bible fight 5 minutes to kill yourself etc etc. They’re all offensive to some people.

1. I may be slightly biased (I’ll admit), but I don’t see how you could play Death Vegas, Pizza City or Amateur Surgeon and say that those games have no depth or are just gimmicks. Those are three of the games we’ve posted here on Kong.
2. You’re judging the games by the TV block. Death Vegas, for instance, is a game we produced that isn’t a comedy. At least I don’t think it is.
3. Is Five Minutes to Kill (Yourself) offensive? To whom/what? Or are you just offended by violence even though a game called Gunmaster Onslaught is listed in your favorites list? :)

First impressions last, unfortunately.

I think this is true for a few people, hopefully not everyone. :\ And I said this before on here, if we were to do this again we wouldn’t start off with Bible Fight. That was clearly a misstep. We’ve talked about pulling the game off Kongregate but that might piss even more people off.

Some of it also has to do with this feeling that we are somehow corporate or unpure when we post a game to Kongregate. And it’s not that way at all (and it’s doubly humorous considering Adult Swim is kind of the pirate ship of Cartoon Network)… I mean, most of our games are projects with independent developers like Spiritonin and Pixeljam, they aren’t based on any of the shows we have on-air, and we’re not advertising Adult Swim any more than many developers who post games here link to their own sites.

One other thing I think happens is people don’t like X show on Adult Swim or they’re upset that anime isn’t on as much so they let that affect their rating of the game. Understandable I suppose but unfair to the games. :\

Bible Fight was more an experiment than anything else (and in hindsight, probably not the best thing to go out with first). I promise to keep uploading more games like DV and FMTKY.

Yes, we’re working on Amateur Surgeon. It’ll be published soon. I dunno if I’d say “most” of our games are coming and am not sure where you might’ve heard that. There are plans for “more” games than the 3 we currently have up but we’re doing it on a case-by-case basis, listening to comments from users here on what they might want to see come to Kong, and seeing what we can do. :)

Topic: Kongregate / Is adult swim paying Kongregate?

Hi, this is CJ—games producer for Adult Swim. It’s already been said, but the answer is no—we’re not paying Kongregate.

In hindsight, perhaps kicking things off with Bible Fight was a misstep on our part. If we could do it again we may not’ve posted BF to Kong at all. Since it was one of our first original games (along with Five Minutes to Kill Yourself) it seemed like an obvious place to begin when we decided to try syndicating our games out to other sites but I think it’s tainted people’s opinions of our other games to some extent.

Hopefully some of that will be repaired by the next game we post here, one that’s been requested quite a bit in comments and feedback we’ve seen — Amateur Surgeon. We’re still working out a few small kinks but it should be up soon. :)

I don’t see why people are having a hard time grasping it. The tutorial seemed perfectly adequate to me.

I think the problem is you definitely have to play the tutorial to begin to “get” the game since it is very different than most fighters. But then, when you tell a gamer they need to play a tutorial they’re likely to moan about it. :’(

Topic: General Gaming / Death Vegas Easy, Medium and Hard Badges Walkthrough

I think you mean the “Training” menu. That’s where the mini-games Three Hits, Hyper Defense and Target Practice are. It’s available after you complete the story mode’s tutorial. Since the game is more than just a button-masher, we try to make sure you complete the tutorial before the rest of the modes open up. BUT — if you want to get right to it you can hit the space bar the minute you get into the tutorial mode, hit “Exit” and then everything will be open.

Topic: Kongregate / Death vegas difficulty problem.

If you set the difficulty to 0 and go into Three Hits, it automatically changes it to 6. After leaving Three Hits, it goes back to the default — 3.
