My new career is making games, guys! I'm now Co-Owner, Co-Writer, Co-Director, Co-Producer, Editor, and one of the Community Managers (wow that's a lot to say!) of Coded Emotion (developer of Anonymous Agony) with my friend, the founder, Jake Caro!


If you want to support our cause to raise awareness on issues and help the world through games, any support is appreciated! Venturescape is going to be a game too! You'll get Discord server access, cool perks in-game, and out of game. This is my new career choice, I want to get my stories out there, but I'll need your help, guys! Love you all! More info below! (Also, we posted a podcast: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/847008 )

I just uploaded the last of my unreleased song demos I've been putting up since...May of last year, I think?  I wanted to put out at least 90% of them, the ones worth uploading at least.  Now that we can put the past behind us, it's time to move ahead.  So, what's next?  Well, mostly, check out my newest Talking Real podcast in my submissions to see a more detailed look at some of the topics here, minus the first one.


Career Choice

Firstly, I'm going to drop a big announcement this week about my new career choice that I want to pursue, that I think lines up with my core desires of wanting to help people and entertain, and have fun with it, writing stories that impact people.  It's not just writing, or acting.  I'm going to drop a video/podcast this week, probably filming tomorrow.  It will incorporate other things related to that.


New Album

Secondly, the next couple weeks, I'm finishing my new hiphop/R&B album which tackles topics such as Depression, Anxiety, mostly stuff regarding the stuff i had to overcome with my past depression and the triggers of it.  I just released the new single if you want to support me and buy it, more info here: https://realfaction.newgrounds.com/news/post/1039239 after this album, secret albums I'm working on, more info below.


Pixel Day/Secret New Albums

I finished Pixel Day judging days ago, hoping Tom got the message.  I saw a lot of amazing entries, good job guys!  After the next album drops, while I'm working on my secret projects regarding my new career path, in collaboration with a good friend of mine, I'll be working on two secret albums (then work more on the new Piercing Lazer album after) I hope to release news about in the next month or two when one is far enough along.  They should be done in the Spring, if not before. 

Soon.
 


AIM + NGADM Contests

The AIM and NGADM contests have been more of a challenge in recent years due to me being responsible of scheduling both, and mostly organizing AIM.  After 5 wonderful years, I have to step down from that responsibility to take care of my own life, but I would like to bestow the mantle of Lead Organizer to someone who can manage it this year.  It would be ideal to Schedule AIM from April to June, and NGADM going after that. 

You have to be an experienced contest organizer, care for the people, and be an experienced musician able to collect the proper judges.  Are you up for the challenge?  I can't give this to just anyone, but the right person who fits the bill.  Message me if interested.


Closing Summary

This is the year I wrap up the things I started, and move on to other things.  I'm not done with music, but slowing down to pursue what I truly want to do.  Music is fun and I'll still do it, but after the Eyes of Purgatory two-part album series, I don't know if I want to do another album for a while, or as quick at least, those never really sell much anyway.  Might just be singles. 

I really just need a career I want to have a lot of fun with and further my life to make money to support my life and do what I'm most passionate about, and music isn't paying the bills.  I still love making music, but there's something more I want that you'll find out this week, very soon.  This post might not last long till I post a new one, even.  I'll be surprised if anyone reads it all.

Stay tuned, my fellow outcasts.

Also, I just dropped a new single, "Trade Arcade", under my side project, Kid Projekt! If you like hiphop/R&B music that actually has heart and soul and not the mumble crap we have today, here's the new single from my new Kid Projekt album "Under Construction" coming next month!  

Buy the single below if you want to support me further, thanks!  It features my good talented pal @Cyberdevil on verse 2!  This album is about my past and how I overcame it, enjoy!

Got some very special things in store after this album, this year.  Big plans both music-wise, and stuff that's not music.  I can't wait to expand more in the soon future.  Good luck everyone!  Happy Pixel Day to be!

UPDATE:  The album will not be dropping this week but maybe a week or two, will keep you updated.  For now, this week the second single, "Skill" feat. Row Skino will be up, hopefully.  If not, then next week.

Surprise! The new Kid Projekt album, "Under Construction", is dropping this week, and a new episode of Talking Real is up now!  There is info (with time markers of when I talk about the topics so you can skip other topics) about Pixel Day 2019 (January 23rd), needing someone to lead this year's Art-Inspired Music Contest (AIM) and NGADM, me potentially moving out of my city, secret projects, big things... plans for 2019, so don't miss out!

Listen here: https://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/843069
Video version: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzNskrWT52o&feature=youtu.be

Been finishing up vocals on the new Kid Projekt album if you like experimental meaningful deep hip-hop that has positive messages and not the crap that plays on the radio.  Should be done sometime this week, it features my friends @CyberDevil and Row Skino in a couple songs!  I also made all the beats (with a couple songs sampled in a couple of them I can't upload to NG)!  Stay tuned this week!

Surprise! Here's the album cover for Piercing Lazer's new album I've been working on for 4 years, almost 5, titled "Eyes of Purgatory, Pt. 1", also working on part 2. I uploaded a demo of a song I originally intended to have on it back from 2015, may finish it someday, but cut it for now.  The album will be coming sometime this year.

The album is the first of a 2-part series that is a concept album paying tribute to my good friend and musical inspiration, @Back-From-Purgatory.  It tells a story through various styles of Metal.  It'll give you somewhat an idea of the different directions I'll be going with the new record, but still, every song is different.

The album cover that is a picture my good friend @JennyActs took in a coal mine that I edited, so enjoy! https://youtu.be/hx6UTJcZoSU

Surprise, I made a remix after hardly making remixes. 

Here's my surprise remix of The Prodigy's "TimeBomb Zone"! They've inspired me since 2006 when I first started making music at 14, going back to my roots! Below is an explanation of why I'm allowed to upload this to NG.  Go listen to it.

Listen to the original: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5tHiZACxbI

YouTube: https://youtu.be/ysQltzJLEsE
SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/realfaction/the-prodigy-timebomb-zone-real-faction-remix


 



I cleared this song with an NG staff member so this doesn't get taken down, the remix contest gives permission in the terms and conditions (enter your email to get info on that on the site): http://theprodigy.com/?fbclid=IwAR2vb33oAQpbdv0JrkMzpxZ4DYCAGpE-9F8a6RRILBvQWv-lt92KpA8OADA

Enjoy!  There's my last song of the year, figured I'd let 2018 go out with a bang!

I finally did it.  1,800 fans!  Thanks guys!  Last I checked it was in the middle of 1,750 but, woah it spiked! 

1743246_154582308352_aewtaetaet.png



As for the future, stay tuned, nothing to post more so than my last update post.  Just uploaded the latest episode of Venturescape, and a song I made for it, so go check those out in my submissions.  That's my last submission for the year.  I have at least 5 secret things to release in the next 2 or so months, but a little early to talk about those.

All I'll say is, 1 collab project almost done, a secret album announcement, working on 2 video games (technically 3 but you'll see), and a secret song...or secret set of songs maybe?  Alright, it's more than 5 secrets, but you'll understand when I can talk about them in the next two months or so. 

In short, I have some big things in the works for 2019, all will be released next year.  For now, look forward to Pixel Day January 23rd, work on your pixel entries!  And, I'm working to finish the new Kid Projekt album for January 16th.  The next batch of uploads will be song demos from the new Piercing Lazer album coming this Summer, then the KP songs.  After that, you're getting a surprise album.  Stay tuned!

I need more commissions, because I'm broke, so if you want to commission me, or know someone who does, check this post out: https://realfaction.newgrounds.com/news/post/1026401

Don't forget to enter your submissions by January 23rd for our 4th annual Pixel Day!

https://www.newgrounds.com/collection/pixelday2019

Also, if you like experimental Hip-Hop, check out my new Kid Projekt single "Under Construction", the title track of the new album coming January 16th.  It's a positive message.  It's on Newgrounds, but if you want to support me, you can buy it on my store too.

Newgrounds
BandCamp Store



Also, I have a couple questions. 



Newgrounds Zero Hour Needs a Game Programmer

1. Would any programmers like to help me finish the rest of Newgrounds: Zero Hour?  It was a game to celebrate the birth of Pixel Day, and the demo has over 80,000 views now, with an amazing rating, holy moly!  I've been wanting to finish it for years, we have about half the assets needed, I just need a good programmer who can do what the demo pulls off.  Message me?

Check it out: https://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/664782



I'm Making a...Card Game?

2. I'm also developing a party card game, how would I go about the process to finalize it enough, then how would I present it to a card company in an email in a way where they can't steal my idea, but they are interested enough to email me back?  I've done test runs, and many people have said it's lots of fun, though I gotta tweak it a litttle.  Ideas?


I'm Making a...Video Game Too?

I just bought RPGMaker MV, and going to learn it, in attempt to make a video game demo for a kickstarter, so this is all stuff I've secretly been up to.

That's all for now, I'm really just an idea guy who's trying to come up with ideas I love until something sticks.  After the Kid Projekt album, there's a few surprises in store music-wise, then more work on the long-awaited Piercing Lazer album.

Commissions are open again for Music and Voice Acting if you want to hire me to make you a song or provide a voice! I'm raising the prices a little, I need the money until I get a second job. We can do a payment plan of a third or half the payment upfront, then weekly or bi-weekly payments. 

I'm also going to be very cheap for voice acting since I'm not on the map much, but I have years of experience.  I posted the music demo reel down below (and here on newgrounds).

More info in the videos below. Link me youtube videos of what you want it to sound like, instruments you want, what the song is for, etc.  Email me at rfmusic180@gmail.com when you get all the info, or if you have questions ask me.

PS: Don't forget about Pixel Day in January!  Make your submissions!  Tom Fulp and I are judging as always!  Click here for more info!

This is just until I get a second job, it's been hard man.  I just got over a week of being sick, working on the new Kid Projekt album, and more on the Piercing Lazer album.  I just finished a commission that hopefully you guys will see in the soon future on the Fawful's Minion youtube channel, and mine. 

Not much else to update, stay tuned for a few more song demos from the past, then stuff cut from the new Piercing Lazer album.  Just trying to find my direction and how to make money right now.  Stay tuned!
