My first commercial game is OUT!!

No Time To Explain came out on Monday. It's not out everywhere, we had a cold release incase anythin went wrong, it'll be up on Direct2Drive n Gamersgate n stuff (and bitTorrent) after the weekend. Steam? App Store? who knows!

But you can buy it right now right here.

If you don't know what this game is then lemme take a quick quote from funny-games.biz:

Kill giant crab in this funny gun game.

If FOR SOME REASON that's not enough then here's a trailer:

BOY have I bin busy the passed few days gettin this FUCKING STUPID MAC VERSION to work, and playing TF2. Buy it if you want, but yknow I'm not advertisin here. It's PRETTY SHORT! I wish I was The Behemoth or Team Meat but HEY-... Next one's on me. If this kicks off then we'll hire someone who can actually code or draw, an then things'll really get cookin.

A while ago I said we were having a poster contest. Remember that? Well SOMEONE WON! An they fuckin blew us away! I was ECSTATIC when I opened my inbox that day. We put their credit in the game and sent em some stuff. Then a distributor asked us for "box art", so we sent them this.

... MAYBE we should be taking this more serisously as a company... or maybe everyone else should be having more fun. RIGHT??

So yea; game's out- only buy it if you want it- if you kickstarted us with $5 then CHECK YOUR INBOX cos you got it! We would be heading up to PAX right now but one of us twisted their back or something (?). Something happend. I twisted my neck 2 days before release and it FUCKED ME UP!!!! I WAS SO ANNOYED!!!!

We'll check out who's available to help us make a short little iPhone game, and then we'll jump into round 2. Already got a good bit of it made.

Ask me anything! Except things I'd be uncomfortable answering.

Actually do ask me anything, I'll PM it if it's anything bad.

EDIT--- Oh god I'll tell you what's scary: Comin back to web games after about 8 months. I just played Nanobeast on the Newgrounds thinkin "Yeah this'll probably be a pretty average shooter"

...OH MAN. That game is PRETTY GOOD, and it's free, and it's pretty good. oh no

oh boy

ohhhhh goodnight Irene!

Congratulations man!

Posted by Claude

That trailer made me laugh. I can't afford to buy anything at this time, but I'll keep an eye out for it when I can. Congrats.

Posted by Ventilaator

I saw the trailer some time ago on Desturctoid and found it completely awesome.
 
I then proceeded to find the game a complete nightmare to control.

Posted by Th3_James

this looks fucking cool.

congrats on the release dude!

What about ze multiplayer?

Posted by Vitor

Saw the trailer a few weeks back - legitimately interested. Might pick this up - still get season 2 for free if I take the plunge with season 1 right?

Posted by Vexxan

After seeing that trailer I'm kinda interested in this game, might buy it!

Yeah, the plan is that you buy one and get the others for free.

We're not talking about multiplayer, are there any other questions.

Posted by countinhallways

Hearty congratulations dude. I saw some coverage of the game over on Rock, Paper, Shotgun the other week and squealed with delight. I was all: "some guy on a forum I visit is making that game!" (to myself that is, I have never bothered to join their forums for some reason). 
 
But seriously, it looks great and I look forward to playing it. I wish you all the success in the world with it. Well, not all the success. Leave some of that for me. But lots of success anyway.

Posted by Dread612

Congratulations!! When it gets on Steam I'll pick up a copy.

Posted by LordXavierBritish

I'm pretty sure I own a copy of this through Kickstarter or something.
 
I should go play it.

Posted by TurboMan

congrats.... still mad you didn't use my poster art for the game... I'll check it out probably

Posted by Khann

Oh look a quirky indie platformer.

You seem like a pretty cool guy though, so I hope you find success.

Posted by RE_Player1

I hope you can get it up on the Mac App store, would love to buy it.

disis so awsume! im impressd wish i culd make games.

Posted by RandomInternetUser

I want this game a lot!  I will buy it when I get some money!

Posted by Scalec

I saw the trailer and it does look good in the trailer, which can be misleading. Dont get me wrong the game can be really good. But I would really like a demo, review or anything really before I make up my mind wether I will buy this or not.

Edited by SpacePenguin

Wow thats awsome man. Congrats.

Posted by Danteveli

Congratz. I may buy it and review it when it lands on steam. I love the poster. great job.

The trailer made me chukle, looks pretty awsome. Definately putting this up on twitter (@gameinfatuation).
Posted by Fear_the_Booboo

Looks really nice.
 
I've tried to go to the website and I got an error message, maybe it's my computer. I've got a lot of game and I'm still curious about what the gameplay looks like, but if you get good feedback from the community I'll buy it for sure.
 
Also, congats.

There is a "demo" of the game in flash at http://www.arcadebomb.com/play/no_time_to_explain.html

Edited by I_smell

We've got a couple great reviews, but it's mostly just from blog sites that nobody cares about, and people who are following us on twitter.

And the Flash game was made in a week, before I even THOUGHT of ever makin a full one. The controls suck, and if anything you could call it a bit of a dodgy prototype.

Thanks fr movin this into a super popular sub-forum guys, nah it's cool, whatever.

Posted by Fobwashed

Congratulations =D

Posted by JackSukeru

I played the Newgrounds version of this game and remember not liking the controls. At all. I tried testing it again so I could remember what I especially disliked about them, but the game wouldn't let me move after the first scene finished playing so...bummer.

Still, I love the concept and might try it again if it gets on Steam when I have money. Good luck until then.

That looks really awesome. How big is your team?

Edited by imsh_pl

That poster is amazing.
 
Also attack its weak point for massive damage.
 
Also: is Jeff Briges in it?

Posted by SMTDante89

That looked amazing.

Posted by AhmadMetallic

congratz

Posted by GlenTennis

Hey this is you? That's awesome, I remember seeing you (or someone) post about this on Reddit.

Congrats, dude.

Posted by Tim_the_Corsair

I'll buy it when I get home, congrats duder!

I do the animation and programming n all the game shit, and Alex does the distribution funding and advertising n all the business shit.

That is the team.

I came up with the original game idea that you can see in the old Flash game, and it was Alex's idea to expand it into a full story with a hundred levels. I live in England, he lives in the Netherlands. Skype rules and is great.

@imsh_pl said:

We're not talking about that right now.

Posted by XTraFries

looks pretty damn fun.

will be picking it up once that mac version is out (and maybe holding out for the steam release)

Posted by Xolare

Is Daft Punk performing in this game?

Posted by PillClinton

Congrats on the release, man. If you need any audio help (samples, dumb music, etc.), squirt me a PM, or just shoot me right here and now in this thread.
