Work In Progress [7/15/2015] - Indie DB


100% Non-Commercial Indie Game

Since the death of Major Mylar, the Tan army has lost every battle. Even with the help of the Blue and Grey armies, it seems that the Green are destined to win and the war finally appears to be coming to an end after so many years.
Unbeknownst to the Green however, The Insane Grey Doctor who was recently declared MIA, is still alive and has been furthering his research that he started back in the tropical zone of the plastic world, going beyond zombies and instead has found a new interest in the insects of the real world. Spawning creature after creature of the vilest order, The Grey Doctor's power only grows with each passing moment. Seeking to capture and destroy the plastic world, The Doctor finally emerges back in the real world, with his new found army ready and at his command he launches an assault on all of the nations.But unknown to anyone, even Plastro himself, the Grey Doctor has also recovered Major Mylar’s remains and with them, has created a weapon so powerful, it threatens the balance of both the real and the plastic worlds...

Greetings folks! Lord Iheanacho here!

I've uploaded a video today explaining what is to come from us, including Army Men III's true status (no, it's not really dead), and future plans of Neotl Empire and it's YouTube channel. You can watch it below.


To summarize, Army Men III is postponed and we are focusing on Army Men Online from now on. However for now, Army Men Extended is on hiatus as well until we can settle the copyright issue once and for all. The reason behind this is because we can't distribute the game effectively without it. A C&D letter is one thing (barely an issue for our case), but we can't get the game distributed on platforms like Steam Greenlight or possibly even the 8th gen consoles.

So our new goal right now is to start small; I am working on a new indie game.

Can't announce the title yet as trademark is still a concern and a process I need to complete, as well as register my team as a company brand. Given the short scope of it, I will work on this game entirely alone (it's what I know best after all).

I also want to use our YouTube channel as a basis for tutorials in game dev and perhaps other endeavors such as music composition, art, and animation. This is something I already planned years ago when UDK was popular, however I lacked the time to do it and now I missed the spotlight for UDK as it's community is now a ghost town since UE4 became free. Now that I am done with college, I finally have the chance to get started. My tutorials will not be limited to Unreal Engine 4 however. I want to expand to other engines as well. I've invested some time with Unity & LumberYard lately and I am amazed to what has come with the engines, and I am eager to give Source 2.a try upon it's release. Speaking of Source, I will also go back to using Source Engine in the meantime and even give Source Filmmaker a try..

That's all for now, Lord Iheanacho signing off.

We had nothing to do with the sales on GoG.com, that was entirely from 2K's end. GoG basically asked them to get the old games on their platforms and they didn't mind.

I just wished they added Air Tactics, World War, and Sarge's Heroes on their as well.

Army Men was a huge part of my childhood. Now I am an adult, and this reminded me of why I loved the series so much. It delighted me to know that others loved it as much as I did and was sad to see it end, now it doesn't have to, thanks to you and your hard work. I love every aspect of how you have created an Army Men game, you have done it right where so many others could have failed. It stays true to the series in every respect, the levels, the weapons, the enemies, the animations, the music (which I love), and the slightly cheesy but likable and fun atmosphere. You brought the child out in me with this game, and I thank you so much for doing so. I look forward to seeing further development and wish you the best of luck. Thanks for making me feel like a kid again.

A fan of a massively underrated game series.

I haven't seen any footage except from the old beta, so I don't know how much progress You've made so far, but I could help with little things, such as the sprint animation. For example: You start running. Ordinarily, one leans forward a bit (You got the sprinting itself right), then when stamina runs out or the player lets go of the key or whatever is used for movement input, You return to normal posture (depending on whether the player is still moving or stops input all together), but not all at once. Same for speed. It's all about the speed of the transition. The speed should gradually return to normal instead of going from 100 to 50 in a split second. It's hard to explain. A quick (but not instantaneous) transition from normal to sprinting posture makes sense, but what about the stop? When You stop sprinting, it will more than likely be a slower transition than when You start the sprinting process. An attempt at a sudden speed change like that in real life will send one tumbling, especially with all that equipment. What is the ideal rate at which the speed should decrease after the sprinting is done? How do we keep the player from going too far when they just want to stop from a full sprint or movement period in order to avoid falling to their death or into the view of enemies just around the corner? Rates are key here. Laws of motion are a tricky thing to emulate realistically. The transition animations are missing, too. That's just the tip of my "sprinting iceberg" but this could all be the blathering of a 20 year old with no life or prior experience (me) :P. I just want to see that this game is the best it can be and bring joy and nostalgia to all of the adults like me who played this stuff as a kid and have the kids who play it curious about what we had then. Maybe they'll grab an emulator and play some sh2 or rts (my top 2 over all). I want to bring the Army Men name back from the grave. Sorry for the WOT and possible redundancies, typos, and nonsense. Tl;dr Ik ik.

Nonsense! Constructive feedback on our game is always welcome.

Matter of fact, your idea on sprinting will actually work well into AMO. Funny enough, we were actually planning to add a sprint-stop animation later in the dev cycle for better transitioniting, something I liked from Sarge's Heroes.

For all intents and purposes it is still dead anyhow, or "postponed indefinitely" as the video blog puts it. So no not really that much of an "April Fools."

Actually it still is an AF joke. Its not truly dead, postponed means "in delay or limbo". Else, I'd just scrap the project and delete all its content.

We want to make sure we have an IP of our own to leverage with acquiring the IP to AM series to ensure the game's success and future. Eventually we will still resume work on the game regardless, but I just hope we don't have to struggle with publicity should the IP acquisition approach fails or something else comes up, because we need it or permission from Take-Two to get the game on Steam.

This is probably the most effort driven indie game I have ever seen and played. Yes, this game has a bug here and there but that can surely be fixed. The fact that this game haas been a success is mainly through himself and the commuity. The game play of this game is great and in my opinion I would like the music to be a little softer but thats what I think. People can say that this is a bad game but as long as this is effort driven I will always vote game of the year and game of everything. I love…
