    If I were in charge of this I would have just pocketed all the money from u virgin nerds and bought a house full of hookers.

    Good on them to keep working on the game I guess, hope the memes are worth it !

    10th anniversary of Barkley is in 2 days too, or 3, I can't remember. Hopefully Barkley 2 will be out by its 10th anniversary.

    Yeah, but Cleve and VD didn't have nervous breakdowns when Donald Trump was elected.

    Perhaps I'm necroing this thread a bit, but I feel it's prudent to inform all Gun's & B-Ball Enthusiasts present that the chief pixel artist, frankie (frankiepixelshow on twitch), has been more-or-less regularly streaming himself working on the game roughly three days a week for the past year or so.

    Things I've been able to glean from skimming through a bunch of the vods (I'm too busy to do screencaps of everything fuck off):

    - Cave diving adventures are confirmed, with X114JAM9's animations being based on the swimming animations the turtles have in that one Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for the NES.
    - Looks like most unique projectiles and projectile animations are done, unique firing sounds and exact weapon balance considerations are still being tweaked.
    - Seems there's still a ton of enemy and various NPC animations left to do because Frankie is insane and wants to do a ton of enemy and various NPC animations.

    - The duergars are one of the main antagonists of the game, be careful around them! The vod whence this upcoming screenshot was procured was showing an early version of the start area, there's another one where frankie goes through it and adds a bunch of props, details and dead bodies for the true proper experience of escaping lethal death as an abnormally muscular diaper egg baby. I'm assuming the dialogue is final.

    Yeah that's cool and all, but at 8+ months since a backer update and nearly six years since the Kickstarter with no end in sight, this thread richly deserves and requires a Vaporware tag.

    I've done my best to heckle cb in shoutbox whenever possible, but it doesn't seem to be enough.

    I think he needs some... admin motivation.

    Yep. As soon as I see him in the shitbox: "Barkley 2 when?".

    Considering how long this game has been in development, it had better be Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Legend of Zelda, and Zombies Ate My Neighbors all rolled into one and amplified, and with the most compelling and entertaining blaxploitation/Space Jam theme of all time.

    It would be nice if this and Octopus City Blues could at least do postmortems sharing what got created so that we could see. :/

    Octopus City Blues had a demo a while back, and I think they're planning on releasing another. They've also been pretty open about their development - they went to the KS backers a while back asking if they'd prefer a refund, the game to be split into two, or a delayed release (backers mostly chose the last option).

    Every OCB update seems to be written in the goofy in-character style, and while I appreciate the artistry of that, at some point I guess I would prefer that the curtain be pulled back and someone talk straight about what's happening. I do hope that the games get finished, but I can't say that what's now visible is materially different from what was visible during the Kickstarter (during the OCB Kickstarter they said they were on the cusp of a playable demo, and Barkley 2 anticipated releasing the game in less than a year -- both of them showed a lot of assets, and the current materials also show a lot of assets). Since my own projects always take many times as long as I expect, I haven't given up all hope; but since most of my projects get abandoned, I'm not very optimistic either.

    I don't expect a public "straight talk" ever, in fact I'd be disappointed. Have you tried private messaging? eric__s is right there, maybe he will tell you secrets behind closed doors.

    You might ave missed some of the more straight talk updates. Here's one from the beginning of this year. Excerpt:

    Show Spoiler


    It goes on. The latest update makes it sound like the plans have changed again, but I still think they've been decent about giving people a sense of what's been happening with development and what the future plans are. The earlier post were they were asking people if they preferred splitting the game in two or refunding the money is also one of the more "straight talk about what's happening"-type posts

    What the hell is Octopus City Blues? Is this another game they are working on? Does it have something to do with Barkley?

    Wait. I never heard of Octopus City Blues until this moment. Is there something I should ... ? I can preorder that but ... ? Should I pretend I just never ... ?
