Escape from the Underworld - FLASH Version

We did it to Crazy Over Goo, now prepare for the latest in Flash-versions-of-my-games!

We haven't made major changes to the game aside from some difficulty balancing and extra background art, as you can see above. This was mostly a light-hearted side project, thanks almost exclusively to PickleMan, who does not actually maintain a particularly active web presence in the same way I do. This dedicated and talented mofo threw this together really quickly, though, and was hella responsive to making changes and adjuestments as I suggested them. A big round of applause for him!

Why wasn't this announced when the game was finished, months ago? We wanted to find a good sponsorship deal! Alas, sponsors did not really like the title, further cementing my confusion with the Flash world vs. PC gaming world. We decided to take matters into OUR OWN HANDS and crafted a Kongregate exclusive package here, banking off the dimes and nickels we may earn through ad revenue. Money was never really a major factor in this game anyway, from its inception back in October 2010 to the Flash version proposal to our half-hearted attempt to garner sponsor interest.

Dang, you just have the worst luck when it comes to sponsors! Well, you know what they say: third time's the charm!

Yeah, FGL. I didn't email sponsors directly partly because I didn't have any contacts on hand and partly because it seemed like a process too annoying to get into when I was already swamped with so much other stuff (this always was, to me, a less important side project). That's what I meant by half-hearted effort. :)

Sponsors really don't like my work though, generally.
