Friends! Before I ramble on about MY STUFF, there is somewhat of an urgency to help push the MADNESS PROJECT NEXUS 2 KICKSTARTER CAMPAIN FORWARD!
Swaine and Kringles have reach %50 funding, but need more!
Madness is seriously awesome and deserves to a full fledge game. Nuff said. Go back it.
I have good news! Armed with Wings will be returning THIS YEAR! Yessss I knowww it's been like 2-3 years since Culmination.... I assure you that not a day has gone by that I haven't been thinking/creating/furthring the world of Armed with Wings.
BEFORE THE YEAR ENDS THERE WILL BE MORE GAMES TO PLAY
Since the release of Culmination in 2011, I've been somewhat busy furthering developed characters, story and artsyle all to prepare for THEBIGONE - more news on at the bottom.
In the meantime I've got two other projects in the works:
Armed with Wings 1 Remastered (not final title)
This is a vast improvment on the original game featuring the following NEW content:
- Updated art/Animation
- Additional Levels
- New Audio
- New Animated cutscenes
This game will be release first, and it will be a side by side release with my new website. Expect it soon, with active dev blogs starting next week @ www.armedwithwings.com
Armed with Wings Remix (also not final title)
Remix is still rather early in development, it's final direction not fully planned yet either.
- Leo playable
- Lone Warrior playable
- Vandheer playable
- Survival deathmatch
I've also got local multiplayer vs mode working in some capacity - and it's FUN - rather smashbros like. With that said, it may only be included in a standalone, downloadable version. UNLESS I can find someone who could add online functionality - that would be cool!
The BIG ONE
The Ultimate Armed with Wings game... the BIG ONE! Still in very early stages. This will be a huge effort in which I will require much time and money in order to truely realize. As I'm looking at various funding options I really hope that fans of my games might be willing to participate in crowd funding on somekind. Would you support Armed with Wings?
That's about all I have for today. Please life, share, tweet ect... Finally, for all things Armed with Wings please visit
Followers of my Armed with Wings Facebook page might have seen some video of Leo in Culmination.... For the past few days I've been working on getting Leo into Culmination.
The reason? I intend to make an Armed with Wings Survival game in which Leo is a playable character!
The result... speaks for itself:

I'll be working very hard to get this game out very soon! You guy's deserve some more Armed with Wings!
Been awhile since I've dropped a word bomb onto the internet - so here we go!
It's August 2013! Since Mario POWPOWPOW, I've been working hard on a few contract gigs. One of which was Laval Unleashed for CartoonNetwork.com!
Currently I'm working toward completion of another separate contract as well as various web development job here and there... Long story short, I'm keeping myself very busy.
Now Among all this money making madness, I've a couple of game projects in the pipeline. Those paying attention to my facebook page will have seen some screenshots of a new Armed with Wings 1. The truth is I'm going to revisit the previous Armed with Wings games - update graphics, fix bugs, include more content before packaging it up into a Armed with Wings Collection! Trust me it'll be cool as this is cooking to be rather delicious, you'll all love it. I'll be turning up the heat mid August with a more formal announcment.
Speaking of Armed with Wings, armedwithwings.com is live! Everyone flock there now and see! This website is my vessel - I'll be using her to blog the entire production of the 'BIG ONE'. The site also features my official artworks and illustrations as well as various pieces of fan art too!
For now, that is all I have. Have fun!
Some of you may remember a game series called Armed with Wings. For the fools who have not then stop... just stop........
.... and watch this:
*Can't seem to embed video fkn*
I'm announcing the launch of my Armed with Wings website! www.armedwithwings.com Everyone should visit.
This website will act as my vessel to deliver updates on the development of the 'BIG ONE'!
If you are a fan of AwW please follow this website and facebook page. I want Newgrounders to be actively involved in the AwW community! I want Newgrounders to have input in the creative process! Newgrounds is my internet home - and so with any game I make, I think about Newgrounds first!
That is all.
Just released my new game Super Mario POWPOWPOW which has received Daily 4th today!
The game is a Nintendo inspired mixture of Mario and Icytower. Featuring 15 levels, 6 unlockable characters, 7 acheivments and online leaderboards. Go play it already!
I'll quickly give you guys a Sun-Studios update while i'm at it. Currently have 2 other active game projects. One of them is contracted and under NDA. The other is Keyboard Command - a game I started developing last year with my art buddy Alex. The project came to a halt and was unvisited for months. Good news is that it is been picked back up and will be completed shortly.
Now that POWPOWPOW is out, I've got space for another 1-2 month project. I plan to spend that time developing Armed with Wings while also collabling on a short game project.
That's all for now. More at my facebook here: SUN-STUDIOS FACEBOOK
I've been working hard for the past 2 months to bring you guys a super cool Mario game mixed with some Icy Tower goodness. I guess I've been playing a little too much Wii U, which seems to have rekindled my passion for Nintendo games. I'm inspired once again to be creative as a fan boy and I must admit, it feels good. I may do another sprite movie/game this year - something to look forward to.
Check out the POWPOWPOW trailer below:
The game features 15 levels, various items/power ups, 7 attachments, 6 playable characters and online leader boards.
I'll be releasing the game on sun-studios nextweek. Stay tuned for more news.
Samurai Autumn is out now here on Newgrounds! Can everyone please play & vote?
PLAY SAMURAI AUTUMN!!!
The portal is a little swamped today, it's the first time I've seen so many 'under judgement' games - too much purple.
I realize that my season timing is off - but surely it's Autumn somewhere in the world. Samurai Autumn is a sort of iteration on top of Ninja Bolt - which is a really crappy android/flash game I did in 2011.
In other exciting news, I'm working on a new Armed with Wings! It's not the huge epic game that I've been hyping up... but another short flash game that will set the foundation for the new game. I've got some interesting ideas that I'd like to test out... one of them is using Box2d to handle collision detection. I won't detail too much more at the moment but keep your eyes stuck onto the Armed with Wings FaceBook Page as I hope to have some new info ready for next week.
I want to create all of the following Armed with Wings content: Poster, Art Book, Calendar. Would anyone be interested in any of this? (I could include lots of concept art!)
So we've survived apocalypse and find ourselves in 2013... yet Another year. 2011 has admittedly been a dormant year for sun-studios in terms of produce. In terms of quality of life, seismic in the volcanic sense. I personally liken 2012 as... well it's rather hard to describe. Perhaps it was a test of sanity? No, it was more than that. 2012 was littered with hard decisions under incredible stress heights, a constant race against time... a battle for survival. These ingredients forged a wild & emotional rollercoaster ride... and I normally hate rollercoasters...
We've all got issues. I won't detail my issues but I will say I suppress certain ones. They finally blew up in my face in 2012. Though I was aware of it - I succumbed to my unstable emotions. I often felt warped, like a different person. Depression and anxiety killed my work ethic, distorting priorities and goals. This would only worsen as I couldn't keep up with expenses. Desperation eventually would kick in and before long I would find myself crunching extremely hard on project of no relevance... or starting new projects... or going back to work for my old boss... or head butting with colleague over disagreements... screaming too. Sometimes I would just scream (when nobody was around). Can I be blamed? Maybe.
I'm well adapted to the fact that everything takes longer than expected. But I experienced this on a completely different level, constantly. I found this incredibly spirit breaking, like walking through a desert in the scorching heat. That stung. I still wonder why this was true for nearly every project!? So many games that will never see the light of day. So much hidden complexity to every task.
Honestly it wasn't a complete shipwreck. I'll highlight a few points of interest. I participated in the Global Game Jam 2012 and created Seasonal SciFlies which won Most Surprising game in Melbourne GameJam. An experience I'll never forget and certainly one I look forward to in 2013!
I hit the slopes during Winter enjoying two snowboard trips to Falls Creek. I spent a total of 4 days and 3 nights carving up powder, speeding between trees, jumping with ambition! In a perfect world I would live in the snow: boarding in the day - making games in the night.
Just recently over the christmas break I took 2 weeks off work. A therapeutic choice. Leading up to Christmas I spent much time with my cousins, my favourite company. We are always enjoying ourselves in the form of new activities. Christmas itself was indeed merry, BBQ after BBQ after... Finally New Year (being my birthday) was good That's all it took. The last 3 new years have been rather terribly upsetting. I'm just happy that I started 2013 with a genuine smile. Do away with the plagues & demons of 2012. Write them off completely -
I bid a bitter good day - So long 2012... you won't be missed! - and yet not forgotten, as there have been many lessons learned. I'll detail these lessons later as this blog post is getting rather large.
So let's get started 2013 - You better be ready to box causing I'm already swinging strong! I've never been more conditioned to the harsh realities life can dish out - so let do this!
*BAMB* Mega Boulder Rampage is OUT! Another great little flash game produced by Steve & myself.
Developed this in around 3 week during September 2012. This game was built was a way to earn some income as Steve & I decided that Zombie Mayhem would take too long to complete... more on that in a sec.
What's next? Well I'm in process of redesigning Sun-Studios.net - There will be a Junkyard section. All the unfinished trash of 2012 accompanied with it's story will certainly be of interest to some right? This is one way to actually improve 2012! The wastes efforts will no longer be wasted. This website is a priority as I like the idea of starting new years fresh. Want to have it done before Feb.
Zombie Mayhem - you have NOT been forgotten. Steve & I killed ourselves working on this project. Although it remains unfinished - you may be playing it sooner than expected :0
This year's focus however will be Armed with Wings! Let me be clear - I intend to make a new Armed with Wings game. A full pc release... a complete experience that will tell the tale of the entire AwW universe. Let me be clear again - this is barely in pre production & will take A LONG TIME TO MAKE.
But don't fear - before this, I will make yet another small AwW spinoff. This hopefully will be a quick project - more of an experiment to test out some new ideas I have for the BIG one.
If you want to stay up to date on Armed with Wings please follow the facebook page - armedwithwings.com is on my list too
This is the longest blog post I've ever done. A testimony itself to my dedication. I'm confident that 2013 will be a strong year of achievement and enjoyment. Thank you to all my readers and fans who have stuck around - your support continues to inspire me. If there is one this that will never change about me, it's that inspiration will always be my fuel.

That's not all though -
Unfortunately I haven't release many games this year - which is sad because as we all know there may not be a 2013...
But to compensate, I've been working extra hard to poop out a few before the years end.
MegaBoulder Rampage - This game is in the final stages of the sponsorship phase - will have a release date very soon.
Samurai Autumn - This is the successor to my first Actionscript 3.0 game Ninja Bolt. Here's a quick trailer.
I'm currently seeking sponsorship for this game - I have my fingers crossed for a swift release once sponsorship is found.
That's all I've got for now - Armed with Wings FB page, like it - 2 new games before 2013.
