Announcing Cliff Games

Today I'm announcing a new indie game studio, Cliff Games, it is focused on making experimental desktop games. Plans are in place for getting onto Steam, and games will be sold on my site.

So what is happening to Throw the Project?
This site will live on, but there are no plans on adding more games. Unfortunately, I have no interest in making online games anymore, they are slowly dying. Desktop video games has more opportunity and potential.

Modern Tactics Online
I took down the site a few months back, because it was not paying for itself and Flash games are just about dead. It's difficult maintaining a multiplayer community and it is not what I want to do.

Cliff Games?
Since last year I had the idea of starting a new game studio focused on desktop titles, today I'm happy to say I am committing to it.

The first title is still a work in progress. I want to create a desktop version of Modern Tactics. Taking everything I learned through the years, I believe this game will be awesome.

The game will be 3D, real-time, have fog of war, and many more awesome things.

Please take the survey to give me feedback: Survey here.
Or sign up for the mailing list to get more updates: Cliff Games.

Modern Tactics Online Redo

I have recently been thinking about Throwthegame and Modern Tactics. Deciding what to do next. What do gamers on Throw the Project want? I don't feel like it's Throwthegame.

So after much thought I feel it makes sense to create one last Modern Tactics game. I will be redoing Modern Tactics Online. It will be as close to Modern Tactics 3 as possible.

Beta versions will be posted on Throw the Project. When it's complete it will be posted on all major gaming sites.

Play Modern Tactics Online!

You can now play games created on Throwthegame online against other people.

Throwthegame Feedback

Throwthegame has been online for a while now and its time to get your feedback. I created a simple online form, please fill it out! It will only take a couple minutes.

Throwthegame Feedback Form

Everyone who fills it out will become a Beta Tester, and you'll be able to test new frameworks before they are released. You must have an account on Throwthegame.

Edit: You can now create games!

Change Of Plans

Hey guys, I have decided to completely redo throwthegame. The idea is too big and complicated.

Throwthegame will now feature games where people can make content for it. Just like Modern Tactics 3. The first game on the site will be Modern Tactics.

Heres somethings people can do:

Level creation
Campaign creation (collection of levels)
Weapon creation
Tile creation
All levels can be multiplayer
View other peoples squad
Collaboration (work on levels together)

Right now the site will only have level creation and campaign creation. More will be added as time goes on.

I want to get the site up and running as fast as possible so people can give me feedback.

Everyones account will be copied over from throwthegame. All scripts and images will be lost, so make sure you save everything you need.

Starting Modern Tactics 5

I have now begun work on the next Modern Tactics game. I have been writing down some ideas already.

The game will be made on Throwthegame. You can checkout the game here. It will be updated as I work on the game, so you guys can see the progress and give me feedback.

The goal is to make the game as simple as possible with a lot of rewards. I will be adding achievements and an online level editor like mt3.

After mt5, I will be working on Modern tactics online. It will be remade and will always be online. The current version is broken and I can't fix it. It makes more sense just to remake it.

Give me your ideas for the next version.

Modern Tactics 4 Version 2.0 Update

I recently wanted to get back into tactics mode and started playing Modern Tactics 4. I found a lot of issues with it and I hope to fix them once I start working on Modern Tactics 5. I really should bring back reloading and some other tweaks.

I made a lot of changes and decided to call this version 2. Here are the changes:

Soldiers can move 1 tile more.
Grenades can be thrown 2 tiles further.
Weapons don't disappear as fast.
Picking up weapons no longer takes an action.
Weapon damage is lowered, it usually takes 2 shots to kill someone.
Bomb mode is easier.
Standing by without doing anything restores some health.

Please let me know what you want to see in Modern Tactics 5!

Throwthegame Is in Open Beta

Whats up guys, Throwthegame is now open to everyone.

Some big updates as well, a new forum and help section have been added. The forum on Throwthegame will be replacing the old forum here. Soon the forum here will be redirected to the forum there.

The site can't do much right now but I will be constantly updating it.

At the moment i'm fixing bugs and writing scripting tutorials to help out beginners.

Updates soon.

All Beta Invites Sent

All beta invitations for Throwthegame have been sent out. If you have not received an invite message me in the comments below.

Thank you to everyone who participated.

The site is not complete but with your feedback I can make changes and make the site better before its finished. I will still be releasing the site on Jan 15, 2012.

I will be writing up some tutorials for EntityJS to help beginners start making games. I'm trying to make game development as easy as possible. If you are confused about anything please message me and i'll help you out.

In the future I will be porting Modern Tactics 3 to the site and everyone can make there own versions of the game for free.

ThrowTheGame Closed Beta Soon

Today is the last day for beta sign up. If you haven't signed up already, do it now at throwthegame.com.

I'm currently testing out the site and its rocking. Games use javascript for coding and Entity engine. Start looking into Entity now. It will help you out in the long run.

I will be writing more game tutorials in Entity to help out beginners. If you're confused about anything just messages me in the comments.

ThrowTheGame Update!

So, I been working hard on a new website called EntityJS (http://entityjs.com. This website will assist people when creating games on ThrowTheGame. I will explain in just a moment.

I never took the time to fully explain the purpose of ThrowTheGame because mostly I didn't know what it was going to become months ago.

The website right now is awsome. You can create full games right in the browser in minutes. Just like Modern Tactics 3, where there is an editor, except its in the browser and you can share that game. Let me take you through the process.

1. Choose a framework. A framework is like a game genre, either platform, tower defense, tactical-rpg, etc.
2. Upload your images and sounds to use in the game. This is optional, all frameworks come with default images.
3. Write code for your game. You can customize, weapons, animations, enemies, anything you want for your game. This is where EntityJS comes in. It will be written in that.
4. Create your levels! You can place tiles, enemies, items etc.. And create as many levels as you want.
5. Publish and share with the world!

Imagine for a moment you're in the Modern Tactics 3 editor. You can create many levels in order. You can modify weapons, grenades, AI etc. You can even upload your own tiles and enemy outfits. Then when you're finished, you just click publish! You can instantly play your game online and share with friends.

Sounds pretty awsome right?

The closed beta will be available in early Nov 2011. I'm taking out many features for now, so you guys can start making games ASAP. Right now there is only one framework you can make, a platformer. But I will be adding a tactics framework so you guys can start creating modern tactics 3 games!

I'm very excited for this and it will be worth the wait! You will get an email from ThrowTheGame.com with your account when its ready.

Long Time no See

Hello, I have been gone for quite sometime. It has been a very busy summer for me with work and family but rest assure i`m still making games.

I`m still working on Throw the Game and its at about 80% completion. I`m doing my very best to get this new website up and running.

I really want to finish this site and start something with it. So I took out a lot of features and hopefully the site will be done soon and you guys can see some better updates.

Throw the Project Forum!

After about 20 emails asking me about the forum. I decided I should put it back up.

So here it is, its back with everything.

Just a reminder. Throw the Project is dead right now. Nothing new is going on. It will get new updates around August. Stand by till then.

The reason is because i'm working on my new site Throw the Game.

Thanks for understanding?

Login Problem

Hello! There is a huge login problem on the site and i'm fixing it now. I didn't realize the problem existed until someone emailed me about it.

EDIT: You can now login. If you cannot reset your old password. Just create a new account. Thanks.

Just a reminder. Throw the Project is dead. I'm now working on a new website called Throw the Game. Its the successor of Throw the Project.

It will be fixed today, sorry for the inconvenience.

Modern Tactics 4 Version 1.2

Hey guys! Thank you for all your positive feedback on Modern Tactics 4.

I know it doesn't have everything I promised. I have released a new update. Here is the list:

fixed bomb win glitch
grenades more accurate
knifing more accurate
fixed equip selection glitch
can now load custom levels from other people
added sounds to buttons

Next week MT4 will be posted on other websites (newgrounds, kongregate, etc)

I'm also working on a new game named, Medieval Tactics. Its completely different from Knight Tactics. Its going to be an awsome game, mainly because its in full 3D. Yes the map is in 3D, the characters are in 3D. Its going to be crazy.

Also, beginning sometime in April, Throw the project will go under construction. The website will be completely remade and lots of surprises will ensue.

The forum will not be removed, but it will be implemented into the website.

I will post a screenshot up next week.

Modern Tactics 4 Editor Released!

The new editor for Modern Tactics 4 has just been released.

Note: You can only place tiles for now. In the next update, you can place objects (oil barrels, soldiers, crates) and dialogue boxes to make your own cutscenes.

Next week it will be updated again.

Posted on Jul Sun 18, 2010 @ 9:53pm by lautan

Modern Tactics 4 Editor

Hey guys, its been a month since my last post. I have been busy working on some very cool stuff.

So i'm currently working on the editor. Its coming along great. I'm adding a lot of features to the mt4 editor. So its going to take at least a week.

Here are some features:
Choose game mode.
Place objects (oil barrels, doors, crates) and soldiers anywhere.
Customize opponents and place any number of them.
Create cutscenes with dialogue.
Publish your map and easily share it.
45 tiles.

This is a lot of work for me! So I will release a version with half the features, then later add everything.

Posted on Jul Wed 14, 2010 @ 1:19pm by lautan

Modern Tactics 4 Update

Hey guys update time. I have been drawing and redoing a lot of my code. I have added explodable barrels, hostages, evil leaders and stuff like that.

I have been really busy with other stuff. The game will be finished before Sept no matter what.

I'm hoping to get most of the game done this month.

I got a job a month and a half ago and it ended up taking all of my spare time! Meaning I barely worked on MT4. I will have to quit it, unless I get better hours.

Anyway, do you guys want an editor to make maps while you wait? I can quickly get that up. :)

Select which soldier you like to move.
Soldiers stay on the ground when dead and can be revived.
Jamming happens less often.
Guns are more powerful.

Modern Tactics 4 Demo Released

I just uploaded the short demo of MT4. It only contains one level and you cannot leave it. The next version will contain more content.

Tell me what you think. I took the good things from MT3 and brought it all back.

Posted on Apr Sun 4, 2010 @ 12:10pm by lautan

Modern Tactics 4 Demo

So, you can already guess the demo is not ready. There is no point in uploading what I have now. Its not enough to call a demo.

But by this Sunday the demo should be ready. It'll be pretty basic, just one level right now but you will get a good feel for the game.

More to come this Sunday.
