A metric shit ton of work has been put into the engine today!
Build_003 is approaching “might happen soon”, in contrast to “fuck that shit” from earlier this week.
Some sprite templates & shit (the eye-blistering background is rendered transparent in the actual game)
This is going to be the base template of the walking animation for humans in a game I’m working on. Later on, I’ll add stuff like armor and weapons. Or maybe I can just make some naked dude walking around. Who knows?
This was some crappy little spritesheet I made to test out the rendering on a new engine. Notice, it doesn’t even have animation, so there’s that.
As for the new game, message me if you want a link to the sourceforge project- I’m uploading new builds practically every day.
I’ll provide a download button on the blog once it’s somewhat presentable.
Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE.
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl.
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.
As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things.
Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.
That’s the real truth: Human Beings are scarier than any ‘monsters’ out there because we’re all born blank slates and BECOME our legacy.
This is the best post I’ve seen in a while.
I’ve reblogged this before, but extra commentary has been made since the last time. Hats off to you.
The really scary part to me, tho, is that those who consider the picture scary seem to fear the fact Hitler could hurt the girl or injury her… What freaks me out is this simple question: “How much did he influence her?” Hitler was capable of mobilizing germans in favor of his ideas. I don’t think he was a monster, no, but he was an excellent speaker that was capable of convincing the majority of germans at that time to follow and respect his ideas. That, my friends, is his legacy, both to good as to evil.
Reblogging again for the new comments
Hey everyone! Yeah, it’s me again! No, I’m not here to give you free money. Wha, but I don’t have any prizes to give out. I’m not a faggot ;_; My grandma says I’m cool! ….Nobody talks to me like that. Anyway, your rude behavior aside, it’s me again. Bringing a brief update that no one cares about. Awesome job, right? Yes, it’s a legit jo.. no I’m not a bum. Hey! Well, you’re an even bigger one! Although we never stopped caring for the game, it is only now that we are starting to post again. We didn’t give up. Yeah, yeah, cancel the happy parties. The game is still being made. Actually, Eddy will be working on a new secret project, I’m sure he mentioned earlier. We’ll find out what it is eventually. I’ll give you a hint. It’s not Skyrim (Don’t tell him I told you). Also, if anyone knows what Kickstarter is, we’ll be making one. Now, if you’ve read this far into the post, you are probably waiting to find content in this post to make fun of me with. Too bad. Kickstarter, for those of you who don’t know, is a way to get some funds from the community in return for rewards based on money donated. This however, won’t go in effect for a while. The kickstarter for the secret project however, shall be out soon, if I am not mistaking. Other than that, not much to say. No I will not say we are faggots. Maybe Eddy a bit (You can tell him I said this part). So, stay tuned if you care enough and hold tight, soon enough the fury shall rain and the mighty champion shall return to Ithaca.

Zephradev asked about a month ago when our “break” would end.
Hah x). No, we were not taking any break. If you’re referring to the brief pause, that ended in July. I’ve been working on the game ever since. Now, if you will look back to my last post, you’ll see why it’s been taking a while and I haven’t been able to update the blog!
Trust me, I don’t have a chance to take breaks, especially now that I’m working on Nemesys AND the new game.
