Range Man Viral Launch

As I briefly mentioned yesterday, Range Man, a quirky little spin-off of Melee Man, is now in active viral distribution. I uploaded it to both Playtomic and Flash Game Distribution channels, and to a few of our favorite games portals – details below!

Before I share some of the other links, I’d first like to give a shout-out to the game’s sponsor, Rob from Zethama.com. Without working closely with Rob, this game would not even exist, and for that, I owe a debt of gratitude. Thanks Rob, and I hope the game performs well for you. For those of you who have not yet checked out his website, I encourage you to do so. He’s still a bit new to the scene, but his website has a lot of great games available to play free of charge.

Range Man is also available on Kongregate! As with the previous game, I plan to upload it to Kongregate Arcade for mobile at some point as well. Stay tuned for more on that.

Range Man is, of course, also available on Newgrounds, should you prefer playing there more. It’s the first time I’ve launched a game on their new platform, so it was quite different uploading and getting the game to work on their site. If you come across any problems or anything I could have done better, please let me know!

Of course, being the spin-off that it is, Range Man will have its own special spot on the Official Melee Man Website. It would appear that I never got around to updating the site with a news area, better presentation media, or a distribution package, so I’ll be adding that this time as well. You can expect this update to roll out by tomorrow! The new website is live now!

Distribution Feeds
As I mentioned earlier, Range Man is available in my two favorite distribution feeds. Here are the links to their pages:

Range Man on Flash Game Distribution

Feel free to grab the game and upload it to your personal website, blog, or games portal. You’re free to post it anywhere and everywhere that you can, and I appreciate the help getting the word out!

Android Marketplace??
I know that I mentioned in the Melee Man Viral Launch announcement post that I’d have it and Jetpack Jerome on the Android Marketplace shortly. I apologize for the unintended deception, but I found that the games just don’t run reliably enough on this platform in their current state. What I do plan to do, however, is rewrite the games in a more optimized fashion and possibly bundle the 3 of them into one single application. Being the retro games that they are, the file sizes are relatively small, making it easy to offer them in this manner.

Other Thoughts
I uploaded the game to my Products page and my experimental portal, Ninja Dart, as well. I’m considering the possibility of making a PC installable version of the 3-game bundle too, so let me know in the comments if that’s something you’d be interested in. I hope you enjoy the game, and please let me know what you think of it. Thanks!

The Community Forums are now clear of spam as well – well, clear of everything really, haha.

Melee Man Viral Launch

The viral version of Melee Man is now available on a few different sites and will soon be available on even more – details below!

Melee Man just went live on Kongregate! As with Jetpack Jerome, I’ll be developing a Kongregate Arcade version for mobile as well.

Melee Man is also available on Newgrounds, which just so happens to be the sponsor site! It comes complete with Newgrounds Medals identical to those found in-game.

Ninja Dart
A new portal site that I just launched, Ninja Dart, is also a proud host of Melee Man. This portal is mostly an experiment with AV Arcade Pro, so please excuse any strangeness you might encounter until I can figure out all the odds and ends. :D

The Official Melee Man website now contains a link to play the game. I’ll be updating the site soon with better presentation media, a news area, and a distribution package!

Distribution Feeds
The game will go up in both Playtomic‘s and Flash Game Distribution‘s distribution feeds sometime tomorrow.

Android Marketplace
Both Melee Man and Jetpack Jerome will soon be available on the Android Marketplace as downloadable apps. I’ve already got both games ported and just need to make a few optimization and quality assurance passes to make sure they’re ready for you fine folks. I’ll post a link when they’re available!

That just about covers everything Melee Man related. I’m flying down to Louisiana to visit my family over the holidays, so I apologize if my next post is delayed a bit (as this one unfortunately was). Thanks for reading!

Jetpack Jerome Viral Launch

Just a quick update to let you know that today marks the viral launch of Jetpack Jerome! I’ve done all sorts of things today to get the game out and about, which I’ll highlight here:

The game is now up on Kongregate. I’m currently working on a possible mobile version for Kongregate Arcade.

I uploaded to Newgrounds and also managed to get medals implemented and approved. The medals are identical to the ones found in-game.

That’s right! The Official Jetpack Jerome website is now up in all its glory. I’ll use the space to post all the latest news and information regarding Jetpack Jerome. You can even download the viral distribution package, complete with the SWF, screenshots, icons and game details all in a handy bundle. David (DVGmusic) also released the Jetpack Jerome soundtrack with a hidden bonus track featuring the voice of Jerome. Just follow the link on the right hand side of the official site!

Distribution Feeds
I’ve added the game to both Playtomic‘s and Flash Game Distribution‘s distribution feeds. This is my first time using each service, so I’m curious to see how it goes.

Now that most of that is taken care of and out of the way, I’m looking forward to working on what will be my next game release. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more!
