Boss Baddie Helps to Aid Japan
News posted 25th March, 2011 by Jon Lambert  
Hello fellow clickers. We all like playing games right? Why else would we be making them? Well, don't we all also like to support others in their time of need? No? Well tsk tsk, you people...

But let's get back to those who care. Would you like to enjoy some klik games while giving to those who need your help and support in the wake of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan? Well, Boss Baddie is currently giving all their profit money made from March 25th to April 1st to the Red Cross. This way, you can make a donation and get a nice, shiny new game to boot!

Furthermore, James has been working on an update to Big Sky called Really Big Sky that will be released next month and introduce a bevy of new features including reworked bosses and multiplayer! You'll receive that for free when it's finished if you buy Big Sky.

Click here to read the announcement.

Posted by Eternal Man [EE] 25th March, 2011

Actually it's between the 24th and the 1st.

To bad Tormi isn't available, cause I sure as h*** would buy that!

Edit: Gah! Conflicting info!

Were we getting behind on the shitstorm quota?
Posted by UrbanMonk 25th March, 2011

I wonder how much he's making on all these games?

I mean, it seems to me that he must be making enough to keep producing them?
Posted by Xhunterko 25th March, 2011

Oh joy, more Boss Baddie hate. Lock this down before it gets to 34 nasty posts. Even when they're trying to be generous? Honestly.
Posted by Xhunterko 25th March, 2011

See, it worked already. You are all going to hate on me now because I'm supporting a guy who's at least TRYING to be supportive of someone in a crisis.

Dōmo arigatō Boss Baddie, you make japan very grateful =^n.n^=
Posted by Marko 25th March, 2011

I agree with the above post

And for my opinion, the "James-bashing" is the most tiring thing in the universe - someone lock this thread or something else to stop it before i go insane!

Taking advantage of the poor fate of Japan just for a little more publicity... this is just a new low for BB.
Posted by Phredreeke 26th March, 2011

Yes, he's horrible to take advantage of Japan by donating the profit from his games. /sarcasm

While I'm usually critical of BB's publicity antics, this time I can't do anything but praise him for it.
Posted by AndyUK 26th March, 2011

Just ban Adam.
Posted by Phredreeke 26th March, 2011

Also, shame on the people using this post as a means to belittle James.
Posted by Phredreeke 26th March, 2011

I don't give a COW DUNG how I look. Just that bashing someone for making donations to Japan is tasteless.
<br />

Belittle James all you want, just have the decency to do it elsewhere.

Look innocent? Was Phred accused of something?

Also doesn't hypocrite mean something else?
Posted by Phredreeke 26th March, 2011

I don't think I'm the miserable one here.
Posted by Phredreeke 26th March, 2011

Ok, I'm sorry for saying we should be nice to the guy donating his profit to Japan.
Posted by GamesterXIII 26th March, 2011

You've gotta be kidding me.
Posted by AndyUK 26th March, 2011

I'm kind of curious who these 'TDC's resident non-productive clown brigade' are.
Posted by Jacob! 26th March, 2011

It's me. I'm sorry! I made a dozen fake accounts since 2002 and have tricked you all into believing I'm a real person.
Posted by Phredreeke 26th March, 2011

And all this time I thought Adam was real! Good job, Jacob!

I also invented Rikus, Nifflas, Yves, JasonDarby's cat, and Steve Jobs. You would not believe how hard it's been to conceal this.
Posted by Blue66 26th March, 2011

You can't close a game 'company' saying you're making not enough profit because of piracy and now come out and say all your profit is going to Japan. For me this is obviously just a cheap way to get on some frontpages of some indie websites like this. My guess is that if you are actually gullible enough to believe that BB just had good intentions in mind and will actually help anyone with this charity besides themselves, you might also believe the easter bunny is real as well.

You very well can close a game company because of piracy and then sell games for charity. It's called "taking a loss" and this isn't physical retail so that loss is marginal, and besides, to continue to have his previously made games sold has what to do with closing his game company? Closing the company simply means he no longer expects his games to be a significant source of revenue. He quit making games as a job.

Furthermore, if he appeared on every indie site on the internet, it wouldn't make people who didn't like his games before suddenly enjoy them. Anyone who was on the fence about buying them could buy them now while it is of no benefit to him and forget about it in a day, so while it might drive sales, it won't aid him in any way.

Finally, as far as the Big Sky update goes, he felt like doing that after too many people had complained of bugs and lack of content in the original version of the game.

It's nice that he wants to give money but normal people would just quietly donate if they want to donate. It doesn't have to be wrapped up in a promotional deal.

Like I already said, this isn't about you, or your snide little swipes at people to try and get a reaction.

No, you're right. This is about how horrible James is for donating his profit to charity. I'm sorry I forgot
Posted by The Chris Street 26th March, 2011

Lets try and keep things friendly. Pretty please?
Posted by AndyUK 26th March, 2011

Banning Adam would help.
Posted by Jon Lambert 26th March, 2011

Making it a donation of the sale profits gives people who otherwise wouldn't donate an incentive to do so.
Posted by Phredreeke 27th March, 2011

I bought the Lunar Pack yesterday. Lunneye is pretty cool. The ink effects in Wake is a tad excessive though. Still they're both well made.

Thread involving Boss Baddie -> Mass Trolling Commences
Posted by Marko 28th March, 2011

Not been on here for a while, but it feels like i have read all this before somehow... Yawn!!
Posted by Ricky 29th March, 2011

This kinda reminds me a of a commercial i heard on the radio. "the earthquake was a terrible tragedy in can happen here to so you need to buy our insurance!"

>_> it made me a bit upset
Posted by OMC 29th March, 2011

No kidding? Wow.
Posted by Ricky 29th March, 2011

not the exact words, but that was basically what it was saying
Posted by tetsuya_shino 1st April, 2011

As a person living in Japan, I have mixed feelings about all of this. Yes, it's all over the local news, but I am so far out of the effected range, Tokyo might as well be on the moon. Still, the effects were felt here. During the first week, you could not find any bottled water. Anywhere. And you don't have to ask why, you already knew. I thought that was very powerful.

I don't know this 'Boss Baddie' or his (or her) history here so I can't comment on that.

But I can say my first reaction to seeing this on the front page was disgust. Beyond that, if he is going something later, that you could do yourself today, what's the point? A middleman isn't needed.
Posted by Johnny Look 1st April, 2011

I wonder what james did to you adam for you to come to every boss baddie-related newspost/thread and say FECES about him. Even in this newspost, which is about his decision to donate is entire profits for a humanitarian cause.

You really, really need to get a life. And I mean a real one, outside your monitor.

btw, for the people talking about james-bashing, the only person doing it is adam. Other people are people who don't like his games for genuine reasons, and not based on some past internet squabble like in adam's case.
Posted by Johnny Look 1st April, 2011

No one is 100% altruist, he's doing a really good thing while at the same time raising awareness to an update of a game of his.

I don't think anyone actually thinks he's losing money during 5 days just to let some people know he's working on a free update to one of his game, unless he has personal issues with that person already and is ready to think the worst of him.
Posted by Johnny Look 1st April, 2011

Hey adam it's not a matter of having the wool pulled over my eyes, it's about you trying to pull the wool over other people's eyes.

Everyone knows you are on a personal vendetta against him, if someone is making himself look ridiculous, that would be you.
Posted by Phredreeke 1st April, 2011

As far as the "how can you bash a person who gives all his profit to the poor Japanese" go, the bashers do not think this is charity, they think it's a way to get attention over the backs of the Japanese.

Frankly, people can think what they want about James but this was a nice gesture. Why care if it's done out of compassion or out of craving attention as long as the ends are the same?

I wonder what james did to you adam for you to come to every boss baddie-related newspost/thread and say shit about him. Even in this newspost, which is about his decision to donate is entire profits for a humanitarian cause.

He hacked Adam's computer and changed his startpage to 2 girls 1 cup.

Because of all the hype and blagging and big headed attitude that go along with it.

Well, I used to think so too. Thing is a lot of hyping is made by fanboys and not Boss Baddie themselves. When was the last time you actually saw Dr. James post on this site?
Posted by Marko 1st April, 2011

Very balanced response there, Phred

As for James himself, i speak as i find. James has been a very helpful and friendly guy to me, so i like the guy
Posted by AndyUK 1st April, 2011

Ive never seen any of this arrogance.

Heh I suppose If James finally releases a demo of one of his games that will viewed as nothing but cynical self promotion.

"He could poo on a piece of paper, scan it and add pixel shaders, and half the kids on TDC would fall for it because it comes complete with xbox controller support and pitch black, unplayable areas."

I could say the same about Nifflas, Thats down to the fans really rather than the creators. Both guys work hard on their games.
Posted by Johnny Look 2nd April, 2011

adam, the problem is I don't believe your problem is with any of his games. Your problem is with james himself, but you like to attack his games, regardless of how much you actually like them or not. That's what you do all the time, attacking the creator by criticizing his games. James is not the first, or the last, your antics are already well known here.

Also nifflas doesn't cry for atention but as far as I remember neither did james and whether or not he releases shots and videos before the game is released doesn't seem like a good justification on why you hate him so much.
Posted by AndyUK 2nd April, 2011

omg shut up Adam, can someone delete that post above mine please. How rude.
Posted by tetsuya_shino 2nd April, 2011

I can't believe I missed your post, Akasuki. It would have been one thing if you you really were Japanese. But since you are just a little boy pretending to be a Japanese person, this is highly insulting.
<br />

Do you think you're funny? People died. There are parents out there whose children are missing; they don't even know if they are alive or dead! What is wrong with you..???
