Mickeyland's News

Posted by Mickeyland - 1 day ago


So I kinda got lazy over the past 2 months but I'm back working on stuff. So I got back into working on my game. Laurens School.


What kind of game is it?

Laurens School is a point-and-click adventure game. Inspired by the riddle school series of games. So you find items to escape the school. That's pretty much it. I'm going to try my best to spend at least an hour on the game every day until I release it.

Wouldn't it be easier to make a YouTube devlog?

Yes and no. I am currently working on one. I screen-recorded about an hour and a half of me working on the game and I plan on it being similar to Minecraft or sims speed builds, where it's a timelapse with commentary. It's going to use my actual voice. I can't estimate how long it's going to be right now, I'm going to try to edit and post it tomorrow. So go subscribe to my youtube channel if you want to see a timelapse of most things I did to it today.

Any screenshots?

Yes, I'll show you some right now.

Yup anyway Ima go to bed now it's almost midnight and I have to wake up early tomorrow.

What's new

Not that much, I have been busy recently. I have a bunch of final exams this week, I also have to help my parents and grandparents with technology problems. I also get the first shot of the corona vaccine this weekend, So I am really busy. This is pretty much my last week of school, Even though I also have school on Monday & Tuesday next week both days are half days and the only things that are pretty much going to happen is that I have to clean out my locker and stuff like that. So next week, the official last week in my school district is going to have almost nothing in it so I should have more time to work on game development!


New updates on my games.

So as you just read I have not gotten time to work on my game but I did give it a name. I decided " Lauren's School " would be a good name. But apart from that, The only other thing I have done is that I have found music for the game. I would like to know what you think, If you would like to see more frequent updates I also have a Game Jolt. That is where you can find Screenshots of the game. But here is the music.

The end.

If you could leave a reaction and/or comment that would be appreciated. Newground does not provide any analytics so it would be nice to know that people are seeing my posts :)

Yup, You saw this coming. I edited another video. This time I edited a Sid the Science Kid video instead of the Peppa Pig one I did last time. I hope you enjoy it!


Posted by Mickeyland - May 16th, 2021


It has been a while since I have made any content on here so I will explain when there will be more content. And I will announce some updates in general.


Why haven't I made any content?

Recently I have had a lot of school work and school. By the time I get out of school I am tired as hell from being there. I already start to dread doing anything productive so I do my work so I can do something that requires almost no effort asap. And making games and art requires quite a lot of effort and time, Hence why I have not posted anything in a while.


When can you expect something new?

For me personally the last day of school is June 15, So In less than a month. But as you may know If you have done something tedious in the past you probably know that it takes a while to get anything done, and I may not remember to upload the content so.. It is probably going to happen after that. So if you want an exact date, June 16 is for you. If you want a more vague but more accurate term, Around the middle of June is for you.


When will my next game be released?

I don't know. As you may know if you are a game developer or animator (or both) that estimating an approximate day/time when a project is finished is hard and the day you get is most of the time is not the actual day something will be released. So I cannot give you the exact date any of the games I am working on will be released.


Am I working on any new projects?

Yes, I am. Yesterday I started development on a point-and-click adventure game similar to the Riddle School series of games. I have not came up with a name for it yet, I have only designed one of the rooms and the menu at the bottom of the screen. Apart from that, I rethought some of the mechanics I had from attempting to make a game like this earlier this year. Instead of having every room as a different scene, I will set it up so every room is a different layer on the same scene. Doing this will remove the brick wall caused by not knowing a way to transfer Inventory Items between scenes. Also recently GDevelop (the engine I use) recently added the ability to add videos to games. So now I don't have to animate words moving for credits I can just use a video editor to make the text move. Before this game I have only made platformer games and a game in a genre that probably doesn't exist, Moving the player through a maze from point A to point B. I will show you a screenshot of how the first room looks so far.

It cut off a sliver of the bottom of the screenshot but whatever.


The end.

If you have any questions to ask me just comment them down below. I will not answer any comments that ask for any personal information. It is all on the card on the left, I will delete any comments that ask for that stuff. If you could leave a reaction on this post that would be appreciated. Newgrounds does not give any analytics so it would be nice to know that people are seeing my stuff. :)

Before I get into this I want to warn you that there is mild use of profanity to prove my point.


So today I am going to tell you about something that means a lot to me. So I am going to talk about racism. I just had to talk about it. I am frustrated about how it is still a thing. Just a few years ago I had no problems with it but over the last year it has gone rampant. So today at school I overheard a conversation in the hallway on my way to my next class and I heard someone say the N-word. You might be tempted to click off but wait there's more. So halfway into the class, I was heading to someone who starts being racist towards people in Iraq. Not sure why Iraq, He has not heard a peep about that place. but then the teacher who is a veteran starts talking shit about the whole class. Not sure why the whole class and not just that person but that's what he did. So after that lecture about Iraq, the teacher gave the class. Then he started being racist towards Asians. I wonder when that person is gonna realize no one cares about him saying "Ching Chong Ding Dong Ping Pong Bing Bong". Then the teacher sent him to the principal's office and that is the end of my story. But wait I am not done with what I am trying to tell you. You might have seen that I said that it means a lot to me and I am going to explain now. It is because I have been a victim of racism. At least 3 times a month I get racist private messages on Instagram or TikTok (but mostly Instagram) that have some racist parts of it. I'm fucking sick and tired of racism being a thing, racism doesn't get us anywhere. It's disgusting that people do it and somehow think it's OK. IT'S NOT! And between 2017 and 2020 we have had a racist government, I don't want to get political but I have to explain my point, So at the end of 2016 I remember there being a plan to build a wall around the USA-Mexico border to keep smuggling drugs and illegal immigrants out. I'm sorry but WHAT! And they wanted to make the Mexicans pay for it. Ok WTF! Sorry but Mexico is not paying for a plan made by a foreign government and the plan is against them. That's not how the world works. I also feel uncomfortable that they are convicting the person that murdered George Floyd now instead of it happening last year when It actually happened. I have to be honest killing someone because of their race is not something we should be tolerating like for real WTF. THAT IS NOT RIGHT! I might have not gotten it as bad as many other people. They just called me the N-word and making weird sounds that sound like Chinese. Even though this whole time I have been white European just like the people being racist to me you still have to feel for people like me who are getting it at such a young age it hits harder and for people who get it so often that it makes them get sick and have to go to the doctor. It's sad and I want to make more people aware of it so hopefully there can be less of it in the world but I don't see it going away for a long time :(.


If you could leave a reaction to show me that you read this that would be appreciated, Newgrounds doesn't give any analytics so it would be nice to know that people are seeing my posts :). Anyway I have been typing for over 2 hours so I am going to leave it at that.

So if you are a big social media personality you may not be able to relate to what I am talking about but if your a small creator like me you may be able to relate. I'm gonna be honest I feel like social media algorithms are built to favour bigger accounts than the smaller ones. This is gonna be a long one. So I feel like smaller creators are not getting their posts featured for the effort they spend on things. For example, I have at times spent hours editing videos for my TikTok page, I put all the effort I could possibly put into as many posts as I can and I only get between 3-13 likes and maybe around 30 views. Meanwhile, I have seen a few big Internet personalities make videos of them showing of their body and making weird faces and somehow get millions of likes & views. Simps man, Simps. So I think there should be a social media website where your posts are pushed to reach more people based on how much effort you put into the post. I think that would make a social media with a much fairer (if that even is a word) algorithm. Then the effort you put into a post will choose how much the post is pushed, Instead of it being a popularity contest it would be congratulating people who put effort into their posts. If you visit my 2nd Instagram account lazar._.beam you will see that me and my friend Scarlett put in lots of effort into making edits of Lazarbeam for people to enjoy. So you may be starting to get why so many small creators are disappointed with the current popular algorithms on social media sites that are based on luck and shares. I imagine a social media with the algorithm have the normal like, dislike, share and comment features that normal social medias have but the add a feature where users or special users can use a traditional vote 5 system like the one Newgrounds has but based on how much effort a viewer or authorised viewer feels was put into the content. I know people may like a lot of the content made by small creators but it is not being recommended to them so they don't know about it.


I don't know how many people will see this but it would be nice if you left a random reaction on this post to show me that you saw this :). I have been typing for over an hour now and this is probably my 10th rant or something like that on here lol

Sorry for not posting updates about my game I have been lazy all week I was not able to work on my game. My laptop screen is starting to get cracks and it is messing with the touch screen and the screen doing weird color things and randomly touching things that I never touched. I have only had this computer for only 2 years so it doesn't feel right to already might need to get it fixed. I made my old laptop last for about 5 years so I want to make it last at least 3 years. It was a Surface Pro 3 with 64GB storage and 4GB memory with windows 10. My current computer has 256GB of storage, 8GB of memory running windows 10. So it is better than my last computer. I am thinking about getting an Intel NUC or a Mac Mini as my next computer. I would customize them with 1TB of storage and 16 or 32GB of memory, but for now I think I am good with my current computer. I would like to give MacOS another try cuz the last time I used it was at school but every MacBook used a different version from somewhere between 2012 and 2016. But anyway I think I have ranted enough, It is 2 am and I have spent over an hour thinking about what to type and physically pressing each key on my keyboard to type this out so I am going to leave it at that.
