Yo whassup! I have Newgrounds Supporter status now, which was a matter of time considering how much Newgrounds means to me. BUT! To the point of this news post, which the organizer of this collaboration Kejayco has ALSO made a Newgrounds post about.
Attacking the Tower is an upcoming fangame to the Henry Stickmin series by PuffballsUnited, and started a new creative team Strobe Interactive (though what else we will make together, nobody knows). The two main founders of the team are Kejayco (realjellybean) and Argus, two Innersloth Discord server moderators and overall cool people. Also on the team are Tomás Ferrer, Legoboy95, bateBANE, and tandi!
I'm the programmer on the project, as well as helping with writing, original music and other stuff. It's a Flash game like the actual games and the art/animation style is trying to be faithful to the Henry Stickmin Collection style (and in my eyes, succeeding). Medals, Bios, a Map and quick-time events are confirmed. References are a given, and no we're not confirming any returning characters yet. It takes place between StD and ItA though it's ENTIRELY NON-CANON.
Hmmm, what else? We can promise at least one kinda-innovation in the Henry gameplay style, quite a few surprises and the game being around the size of Infiltrating the Airship. We're pretty much finished with writing it all and now are moving on to background work and animation and crap.
When can we expect it to release? 2021, probably. *le shrug*
But what I'm trying to say with this fat wall o' text is that you do NOT wanna miss this, as far as a faithful fangame and a love letter to the series and to almost Flash games in general, this is the real deal! I'm super excited to be a part of such a talented team and you're gonna love this. PuffballsUnited also gave us his blessing for the project after seeing some of it, so we cannot thank him enough for the support.
And before ya go, recently I released a cute lil' puzzle game to Newgrounds called Face It! that I used one of Kejayco's songs for, and as a sort-of side thing to Attacking the Tower, I made the Stickmin Creator for making your own Henry Stickmin OCs.
