HM3: On hold

Good news and bad news -- we got another paying client for a HeroMachine Mini version! Wahoo! That's good news because a) it continues to make the program valuable to UGO in a monetary sense (sales is what drives them) and b) it gives us a new toy to play with when it's done.

However, it's also bad news because it means work on HM3 will grind to a halt for the next 3-4 weeks while I crank non-stop on this very short deadline. So Polearms are going to be on hold, as will much of anything else except this new thing until further notice.

I'll still be updating the blog on the regular schedule so by all means keep checking in, making suggestions, generating hilarity, etc, but I wanted you to know the latest status, and to not be too surprised as new releases come to a halt for the next little bit.

  1. So what sort of genre will the new mini be? And will any of the artwork be usable in HM3?

  2. I don’t think I am allowed to say the specific property, but in general it’s in the sci-fi genre. I hope some of it will be transferable, it’ll at least be built in the same (or roughly the same anyway) engine and setup so it will be technically possible. Whether the orientation of the basic anatomy will allow it or not is another story and I’m not sure on that score yet. Hope so, though.

  3. Looking forward to it, Jeff!

  4. Hey, it’s cool. I for one can wait.

    It’s not like we’re paying for hero machine after all.

  5. Still no XXX Hero Machine, huh?

  6. Could you possible give us just one pole arm to tide us over?

  7. Jake, if you’re that desperate, you can make your own pole arms by duplicating various shafts from the Blunts set. Maybe if you’re super nice to Hammerknight and beg him, he can put together a recipe for how to do that.

  8. Did I hear someone say dirty knees. lol I’ll work something up.

  9. Congrats, JH! You da man!

    At Least It Will Be Like HM3, Lets Just Hope Its Better Then Pinup Edition

  11. Seeing as we’ll get a new toy to play with when this mini is done, I guess I can forgive you for delaying HM3 work for a month. šŸ˜€

  12. Looking forward to the new mini Jeff. šŸ˜€

  13. I get the feeling it’s Avatar, but I could be wrong.

  14. Hmmm, is it just me or are my posts being deleted for some reason…? *wonders aloud*

  15. They shouldn’t be, Darkvatican. Any post with links (esp. more than one) usually gets put into Pending mode until I get around to manually approving it, but that’s an automatic WordPress thing. I’ve been seeing yours though, no problem.

  16. Congrats Jeff! Keep up the good work!

  17. will yous till do contests and stuff?
