Summer. Interviews. Games.

Games.

I’m working on a few different projects at once, some at home, some at work.  Its a fun mix of simple and longer titles.

Game #1:  Sandbox Hero – This is a game where you pretty much get to make your own game and levels.  Its pretty neat, like a Little Big Planet environment that you get to share, create, and play content in.  You can make groups of levels to share all at once, instead of just individual levels!  This is well into production and should see beta on Kongregate.com shortly.  Stay tuned!

Game #2:  Button Push [working title] – A game about pushing a button over and over again… only time will tell where this game goes…

Game #3:  Hellevator A and B – These are smaller games for sure, but they both take place in elevators.  These are very, very obscure and early titles… so don’t expect these for a while.

Interviews.

I was interviewed for the Super Indie Pals podcast.  My artist and partner Jimp is one of the Indie Pals (Elephant Quest, Corp Inc, etc) so it was fun being on his show.  Cool guys.  Was happy to partake!  Listen in:

Summer.

Settling into a Summer full of bike rides, rock climbing and games.  Its my first Summer back in the Bay Area after living in Southern California for 6 years (it’s Summer year-round there).  Its crazy having cool days in the city of San Francisco, I love it!

Updates to come!

      • kaito1412

        Speaking of, anyone know Mocha on any other sites?

  • Jojo Rakadan

    Sandbox Hero sounds like the most interesting game.

  • Campbell Godfrey

    i watched the Super Indie Pals episode a few days ago on Jimp’s website but this is still cool! The button pushing game looks really fun!

  • SmellsLikeJesus

    Anyone else notice PewDiePie did a video on Give Up?

  • Elijah_the_Mango

    Sandboxes? Buttons? Elevators? JIMP???

    I’m in heaven.

  • Elijah_the_Mango

    I know this is random, but…….. will there ever be a sequel to ball revamped?

    Don’t get me wrong, I love the new games you’ve made, but…well…ball revamped was the first game I ever saw that was made by you, and i remember ball revamped 5 ending with a “to be continued”. It was (and still is) one of my favorites of all time.

    I’m just curious, that’s all. Can’t wait for the button game of push ups. :D :D :D

    • http://jmtb02.com John Cooney

      There will be a sequel. A reboot actually. In progress.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        Finally got myself an account.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        That is……

        pretty awesome.

  • http://nyan.cat/jazz.html Ititches

    I just stepped on a lego today.

    I really miss the long comment sections on this website ;_;

    • Elijah_the_Mango

      Me too. Remember those days where people would “first” and then half of the comment section would go into war about the meaning of firsting?

      Ahh… those were the days…. when the fruit was strong….

      • Frida_loves_cookies

        Man, I miss those too. When I’d just like every comment that was already liked, even if I contradicted myself.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        Remember the constant comments that ended up plummeting into the right side of the screen?

        Ahhh, those were the times……….(sniff)……… bananas…

      • Frida_loves_cookies

        Fluffy, and the wide variety of blobs? Hell, I even miss the trolls.

        *Raises a glass, and nods* Bananas.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        And then the competitions to see who could get the most likes, of which John Cooney won every single one…..

        *Raises a glass and nods* Ba- *drops glass* …

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        Yeah… Sometimes i want to get a switch called “Nostalgia”. I would instantly turn it on…

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        Remember Ragh Bhag? He offends EVERYONE.I miss him…

      • Guest

        Sigh…. i even miss the spammers :(

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        I also miss the comments XD

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        It’s strange, really. The more-active people on this blog left because of the lack of comments, but they didn’t realize that they were the ones posting most of them. O_O

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        I hope you are not gonna leave :-)

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        :)

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        Okay, so is this a “long comment section” that @It_itches:disqus and everybody else like so much?

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        Yep.

        At least I think so. It’s been so long since I’ve actually seen any of the old commentators on this website.

        SO LONG……

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        Aren’t you one of them?

      • kaito1412

        I like to think myself as a regular. Or I used to.

      • NiGHTcap

        It’s been a while. Can someone link me back to the “Helloaphant” post? That was my favorite.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        And firsting. Man, those were the times…

  • Magical Domiko

    What about AU4 and TITOL4?

    • Jojo Rakadan

      TiTOL4 exists on Armor Games.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        Yeah, but TiTOL4 was made by other people, and the elephant is not the main character. :(

  • Elijah_the_Mango

    13 comments is bad luck, so I gonna add a 14th one.

    ALL HAIL FLUFFY!

    • Jojo Rakadan

      IIRC 13 is a good luck number in some places.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        Waffles. :)

  • Frida_loves_cookies

    I kind of remember there being someone who called themselves Mateusz Skutnik, but that surely couldn’t be THE Mateusz Skutnik…… Right?….Right.
    *is filled with a sense of dread*

    • Elijah_the_Mango

      Ahhh… Mateusz Skutnik… I can still remember his fluffy arguments, of which we would all join in.

      And no, i don’t think he’s the actual Mateusz Skutnik….

      At least I don’t THINK he is….

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        Oh god what if he IS… O_O

  • kaito1412

    The comments section seems to be picking up again.
    Ah, the days when my inbox would be flooded with notifications that someone had posted here… Now it’s flooded with notifications that someone had posted on the mspa forums.

    • Elijah_the_Mango

      Ah, the days when I’d check the website every day.

      Those days still exist…

  • lmmaGuest

    Wow, John, reeeeal lack o’ news.

  • Elijah_the_Mango

    50th comment! YEEAAAAHHHHH!

    I accomplished a goal.

    • lmmaGuest

      Congrats bro.

      You’ve achieved something extremely productive. Be proud.

      • Elijah_the_Mango

        I am. ^ ^

      • Therater2

        EXTREMELY productive.

  • Mlkshke

    I hope John is ok…

    • JoelThePancakeorImmaGuest

      He might not be.

      Its been over 5 months.

      • Misha Mikho

        *Over 4 months

        But your points still stands. I’m not sure what could cause him to post nothing on this site for so long…

  • theKatintheCap

    after months of no news, i am starting to go mad. my imagined conversation with john cooney:
    me: i’m so sorry, but…. I-I—I’ve been visiting other sites.
    jmtb02: But you used to check my site everyday! I thought mine was the only site for you.:(
    me: I know… It’s just that it’s been so long and I began to give up hope. For months I checked every single day, but to no avail. I began experiencing game withdrawal and I just had to play something.
    jmtb02: you should be ashamed of yourself. I can’t believe you did this to me!
    me: I’m so sorry. I hope one day we can be friends again. But that’s never gonna happen if you don’t post some games! or at least some shred of news for me to hang onto.
    jmtb02: I’m sorry too. Here – the games are ready.

    And then everything is right in the universe again as elephants are free to ride up and down elevators and push buttons as they please.

    **This is what happens when John stops posting and I have way to much time on my hands and no games to fill the void.

    • Mlkshke

      You just read my mind….

  • not-a-pwnaphant

    Yay, 60′th comment. I DOWNVOTED IT FOR NO REASON.

  • lmmaGuest

    He did say that the betas would be on Kongregate. What happened?

  • Mlkshke

    Who here still checks the site daily?

    • theKatintheCap

      Does anyone? I did for about a month or so but I started to forget.

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        I do.

    • lmmaGuest

      I still do.

      (huehue 69th comment)

  • Coony Fan

    I’m new to commenting, but all I can say is that I LOVE John Coony games. Plus, about him not doing anything for over four months… Is it really true?

    • Coony Fan

      Now I’m going to do some random comments.

      Elephants.

      • lmmaGuest

        Sorry to burst your bubble, but it’s Cooney, not Coony.

      • not-a-pwnaphant

        Sorry to burst your bubble, but you’ve bursted his bubble.

      • Therater2

        Sorry to burst your bubble, but you’ve bursted someone’s bubble whose owner has bursted someone else’s bubble.

    • not-a-pwnaphant

      Yeah, it is.

  • lmmaGuest

    Huh… His Twitter is still alive.

    • theKatintheCap

      I noticed that too! I don’t understand, seriously, what is going on here?!

      • lmmaGuest

        Maybe he forgot about his site, or he’s busy making his game and not posting.

      • theKatintheCap

        I don’t know, though just forgetting seems highly unlikely. He could be really busy I guess… I just pray everything is okay

      • lmmaGuest

        But the wait… UGH.

  • lmmaGuest

    HOT DAMN, GUYS! His SandBox hero beta is(or was) out on Kongregate! But its only for Kong+ members.

  • hexy

    JOHN!!!!!… WHERE ARE YOU????

  • Dodo

    Ohh John… Say us that you are only fell asleep… Please T_T

  • Elijah_the_Mango

    Some day we’ll all be gone

    But mangoes go on and on…

  • theKatintheCap

    I hope John’s new year’s resolution is to update his site more….

  • Derpy derp

    Where are you? Please come back ;_;

  • Therater2

    HOLY SMOKES! Sandbox hero is out! It’s really out! No Joke! Quit fooling around on here and go to Kongregate!
