RealFaction's News


I made a forum topic regarding a game I'm making.  I've learned a lot on basics, but I need some assistance on how to do certain things for a small game I'm making that will hopefully be done by Pixel Day.

If you know the answers to my questions, or want to offer your assistance with programming this game, feel free to help and hop on over to this topic I made in the forum: http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1402003


New Game/New Music

New Upcoming Pixel Day Game

While my last Pixel Day game has been cancelled (or possibly yet to be revived in the next year, we'll see), me and my small team are working on another game.  I'm doing some of the artwork, learning programming, and doing the music.  We'll see how that goes.  I can't wait to judge submissions sent on Pixel Day, January 23rd.  What will you submit? :)

New Music

I just released a new song called "Misery City" here, and released a lyrics video on my youtube channel.  It's for anyone who feels unloved or not good enough.  Check it out below.  I'm still working on my Piercing Lazer EP due sometime early next year.  Not much other than that though.  I'm going to be releasing previously unreleased music I've kept "in the vault" for quite some time.  Things I thought I would put on an album but ended up not doing so.  Also, a cancelled game soundtrack.  Stay tuned!

Terrible News (Game, Piercing Lazer)

EDIT: I edited some of this, at the time I was deeply depressed and devastated.  Plus, updates on a possible new game and teaser to Piercing Lazer stuff.

It is my deepest regret to announce that due to circumstances out of my control, Newgrounds: Zero Hour (the game i was working on with a team) is cancelled.  I'm deeply upset about this, and overall im just going through a rough patch in my life. 

Pixel Day is still happening, just won't have that game i was working on, so the demo is as far as it goes...unfortunately.  HOWEVER, the team is working on a new game with me but much smaller scale.  I'm going to take another day off of my work schedule because it's too much, and I'm going to learn Construct 2 to program this thing.  Programmers are hard to find, especially dedicated ones.

Also, I've been busy with work and school, and working on the Piercing Lazer EP (for those who know the necromancer theme from Castle Crashers).  I uploaded a preview of a song here on newgrounds (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/655800) and I got a video teaser of the EP with the artwork I made.



 


Need Artists/Pixel Day/Piercing Lazer?

November 14th is my birthday.  Happy birthday to me, today.

Piercing Lazer is...back?

This is basically my next official release.  I'll be working on it so you may not see any more music from me until then.  Remember in Castle Crashers during the Necromancer boss fight, that song that plays that I made?  That song was made under my side project Piercing Lazer in 2008, and I want to make more stuff like that, but not because it sells, but because I think that's one of my best sounds musically, and my favorite, and I want to go back to my roots. 

This was a side project that started in 2007 and spawned two albums.  So I'm happy to announce I'm working on a 4 song EP that will either be released in December or January, but I've been working on it for months, off and on, amongst other things.  Having a job and going to school and working on a game is a lot to juggle!  You heard a demo of one of the tracks "Risen From The Deep" (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/630518) , a remake of a song from the first album in 2007.

Need Pixel Artists for Game

We still need pixel artists for Newgrounds Zero Hour, a game I've been working on for Pixel Day with a team.  We're trying to get this done by Pixel Day in January.  We're happy to welcome aboard the legendary @ScepterDPinoy on the team as of recent as he showed interest!  If you want to help out, contact me or comment below!

Need Pixel Artists for Game

As many of you already know, Newgrounds Zero Hour (on the frontpage of the games section currently) is a game I've been working on with a great team of people, but we need more artists.  We're trying to get this done by Pixel Day.  We are looking for good pixel artists who know how to have fun, and have the time to spare.  We care about gaming and honesty, the players especially!  Thank you for all the feedback on the demo, it's helped us make the game even better!

PEACE!

What Is Pixel Day?/Future Music

Pixel Day

What is this Pixel Day?  You will find out next month when a demo of the game I've been working on with a team will be released here on NG.  Here's another teaser screenshot of game footage.  I'll talk about my upcoming music below.

1743246_144261973751_game.jpg


Future Music

I know lately I've been a bit less active (though I released that Tetris cover with Phyrnna 2 weeks ago), but I have a LOT of unfinished songs I'm trying to iron out.  I've been going to school for music production so my mixing is REALLY improving, so you'll see a huge difference with future upcoming music.  I'll tell you a little about them as they're grouped into categories (to make it easier).

Hazardous EP:
This is my "10 Year Anniversary" release, as it's been almost 10 years since I started making digital music!  It's going to be a 5 track release and I'm going back to my roots!  The first genres of I started making were Big Beat, and Breakbeat.  I started out with heavy influence from Celldweller, The Prodigy, The Crystal Method, Fatboy Slim, Propellerheads, Paul Oakenfold, etc.  I LOVED that stuff, and still do.  It'll be 10 years in March, so hopefully it'll be done around then.  I'm making a remix of an old famous song from Newgrounds for the EP, you'll see that soon.

Piercing Lazer EP:
Yes.  Piercing Lazer (the project responsible for Simple Sight the Castle Crashers Necromancer boss theme) is coming back.  I kinda missed the synth rock/metal sound I had heavily infulenced by Celldweller and Mindless Self Indulgence, and I have a few unfinished songs in the works, one of them being a remake I posted on here a while back called "Risen From the Deep" I made in 2007 originally.  I expect to be done with this sometime in the somewhat near future.  I can't say whether it'll be this year or next, but shooting for December (hopefully).


Secret Tribute Metal/Rock Album:
This is another one close to my heart, special to me.  It's a tribute to a musician on Newgrounds who has inspired me greatly.  It's a secret for now but it's also something I've been working on juggling between all these different projects.  It's to be released in early 2016. 

Well that's all people!  Since not many people buy my albums I'm going to shorten them to EPs and I may not release as often as I'm slowing down, but as often as I release music monthly, I'm shocked.  No worries though, I'll still be releasing stuff every month or 2 weeks, hopefully. 
 


Cover w/Phyrnna, Game In Progress

I've been working on 2 games, but one of them is really the focus for now.  I also made a Tetris cover with @Phyrnna! :)  Also, stay tuned for an upcoming sketch comedy/mock podcast series.

Game

Here's a sneak preview for now, buuut I'm not going to spoil anything...yet.  I censored the main character, who you'll see in time.  I have a great team with me.  Can you guess what this might be based on?

Tetris Cover with Phyrnna

This is something Phyrnna have been playing around with for a little while, finally got to uploading it. Story goes, I was watching one of Phyrnna's live streams on Picarto.tv, and she had an interesting Tetris layout in FL Studio, so I decided to make her a "prank song" to play over her live stream to match it.  Surprisingly, not only did she love it, but she played around with it live, and this is the result of our collaborative effort. Enjoy!

Also uploaded it here on NG.  (http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/642582)

 


Happy Clock Day!

2015-08-15 20:31:17 by RealFaction

Happy Clock Day!  For the 12 years I've been here, I haven't really submitted anything for Clock Day, ever, but I've been a fan for years of the Clock Crew movies.  I decided to not only make a song for Clock Day, but to do something different!  This is my first NSFW comedy song.  I wanted to throw people off, and the reactions I've been getting really make me happy.  I want to make more comedy songs.  Anywho, check out the recording session too!  I make goofy faces.
