Caution + Thanks for the fanart!


Thanks for the awesome fanart. It got me working a bit now, hopefully I'll have it all fleshed out by the weekend.

There's one potential letdown about the game that I should probably address; it is very effects ridden. So if you've had problems getting games like Norrland running on your setup, you might have to forget about this game. When I showed it at the Killscreen Party during GDC the computer threw errors every once in a while when the graphics memory had been all used up. I'm not sure if there's a good way of fixing this...

The game's using multiple surfaces for various effects and I've even managed to get some slight pixel shaders in here. It looks completely trashy and I love it, hopefully it won't make people freak out.

Sounds great! I'm lucky, as I've had no problems with your games so far...

I thought you *wanted* to freak us out. It's part of why *I* keep coming back anyway.

Wooop! Can't wait to try it! Keep up the good work.

Jasper said...

Cactus, I thought you should know that my roommate's college thesis project was to make his own game, and that Mondo was his biggest influence.

Thanks for all the good you do.

I couldn't find an email or anything on here so I'll just post this here. Take a look at this:

This game was obviously influenced by psychosomnium. Even the colors look the same.

Hello;
I thought here was the best way to contact you as there is no email or "contact me" anywhere
Im a player, addicted to shmups, manic shooters, hardcore shmupscrollers, etc and I must say your games are among the very best in your category. But what makes me deeply sad is : now Im running on 64bit and your games don't work anymore.
Is there a way you can make any run-able version for newer computers ?

Catherine Meyers said...

Hi Cactus, been checking CACTUSQUID and the games you develop and I think they are great and would love to have your blog in my high traffic blog directory, that way everyone can get to know of your work. Let me know if you are interested in this link exchange.

Cheers!

One of your games I downloaded gave me a computer virus. Why would you put viruses in your games? >:(

Anonymous said...

^ are you sure it wasn't a false positive from your antivirus?

Anonymous said...

@sarah
you must have downloaded from a different source...or it must be a false positive...i've played all of cactus's games and none of them any virus of any sort.

I've made a little fake trailer for the upcoming mondo game. I guess it's some kind of fanart.
