Mak Gam and Boss Baddie
News posted 23rd July, 2010 by Jon Lambert  
Radix and ThePodunkian (a.k.a. Glen Forrester and Arthur Lee, respectively) have teamed up beyond their original Beyond Plumbers game to make a new game company called Mak Gam. Their new company will be based on producing flash games, with two projects in the works, as well as Beyond Plumbers and ThePodunkian's recent Streemerz already available.

In other news across the interwebs, James states that Boss Baddie is not entirely dead, and that he and Mr. Pineapple have only gone away from making games for a bit. He also announced that from now on, all previously-released games as well as all games that are yet to be released by the company will be sold on a "pay-what-you-want" model, with a minimum price to cover fees, of course.

Interesting, both Tormishire and Underside seem to have been pushed under the rug

Cool news, though I would really like to see Underside finished, but I'm glad a new Klik studio has been established and that Boss Baddie isn't entirely finished.

I don't give a crap about boss baddie, or anything James makes for that matter. But I'm still hoping for the underside.
Posted by Ski 23rd July, 2010

James has always been all talk. Like the boy who cried wolf.
Posted by Del Duio 23rd July, 2010

Tormishire's a huge undertaking. It might not be all talk just really hard for one guy to finish all by himself. You know how it is.

I wonder what the minimum would be? It'd almost act like a donation system wouldn't it?

I was actually referring to the whole giving up because the games were being pirated nonsense.
Posted by Hayo 23rd July, 2010

I like Radix.

I said that because any other comment I can make here would be grumpy and negative.
Posted by Marko 23rd July, 2010

Don't really know radix but he seems cool and i like the stuff he does. Boss Baddie not being dead wasn't really a surprise to me: no-one really ever gives up their hobbies, not forever at least.

Let's see Tormi finished now, it looks epic!

Congratulations, you fell for James's publicity scheme!

Why is everyone so against james?

Honestly, I give him props for actually completing tormi as much as he did. A game like that is HUGE, and for one man working on it, he did a nice job!
Maybe I read the comments wrong, don't attack me if im on the wrong page here.

Oh and I can't wait for these two to come out with more games. I found streemers really interesting.

Streemerz is pretty cool. Feels like a real NES game. Good indication of what we'll see in the future!

Also, this post needs a picture.

I think the whole James-thing is over something that happened well before i was active on this site, so i don't really know. Or care about. Go Tormi!

i dont really care about any of this. i just want the underside. kthanks.
Posted by Radix 24th July, 2010

I don't know what Beyond Pumbers is but it sounds cool.

The Underside bites! The author copied every single element from Cave Story, but got nothing right... He sends us through the entire game with a pea-shooter, the coins that the enemies drop are useless! The Underside is seriously bad.
Posted by Radix 24th July, 2010

The Underside isn't out yet.
Posted by markno2 24th July, 2010

Yeah, it would be okay if those things are fixed, but why some people are promoting the game in its current state like it's the best thing ever made is hard to understand.
Posted by Phredreeke 24th July, 2010

1. Get people hyped up about game.
2. Announce that you won't make more games because of your previous game getting pirated.
3. Have your fanbase make a huge thread about said announcement on TDC forums.
4. Announce that you will be making those games afterall.
5. Get newspost on the front page of TDC about said announcement.
6. ?????

I don't think he cares about the profit, it's the attention he thrives on. Once had a go at me for posting Project Roller coaster on GameBuilder front page and not Tormishire.
Posted by Radix 24th July, 2010

Told you that guy was BAD NEWS, DUDES.

marky_2: actually in its current state everyone promotes it as cave story ripoff haha. But you might be happy to hear that Pod started on some major changes to the game a couple months back (and yeah, he probably could've shown more weapons in the demo).
Posted by Phredreeke 24th July, 2010

It's a meme, Adam...

And yeah, I agree with you, and we're playing right into his hands...
Posted by Ricky 24th July, 2010

Hey marky_2 I like the underside better than cave story so
Posted by -MacAdaM- 24th July, 2010

Underside is like cave story, but way cuter. I also like it more.
Cave story is great though too.
Posted by W3R3W00F 25th July, 2010

Hurray for the founding of Mak Gam!
Posted by Cecilectomy 26th July, 2010

@marky_2 - thats the whole point. its a blatent cave story clone. no one is saying it isnt. if you dont like the game thats your problem.

i also like The Underside better than cave story, so

And you can't argue with Cecil because it's his birthday
