I've only got up to a title shot.  Have not even begun the first level!  Still, here it is so far.  The first version, ever, on 10/15/2014, 2:55 a.m.

Feeling very inspired lately, I had this great idea to use GameMaker to make a video-game of Meteor Man.

All 4 possible costumes shown in the movie, in Meteor Man's developmental stages, would be playable, including a "photography" button in one costume.  Similar to Sega's Iron Man game on the Nintendo Wii in 2008 - all of Iron Man's costumes ever are playable, even the all-gold costume shown less in the movie.

Different levels would have different styles of gameplay.  Some RPG-like levels, in which you can walk around and see books all over the place, ready to touch, with an incredible variety ranging from martial arts methods to A Midsummer Night's Dream.  Some flying levels, where Meteor Man is flying 5 feet over the ground.  Authentic Google Earth photography of Washington, D.C., which is not creepy at all, would provide an accurate overhead angle of the city.

Also: Tanuki.  The main character would be a tanuki, a raccoon dog from Japanese mythology up against other kinds of Japanese mythological monsters, with the baku (nightmare demon) as the primary villain.  The tanuki character would be capable of shape-shifting into the nearest enemy.  In raccoon form, he would be capable of running/scampering off quickly.

I've just got so many great ideas.  Oh, and I'll use my Casio keyboard to compose original music, and who knows how it will end up sounding, but hopefully great.  If I don't write that down in this blog I'll likely forget it.

You Know It's Not A Virus Because

it would be removed from this web-site by if I were to upload anything with a virus, anything less than a cool video-game.

Mr. Triangle is actually a remake of this game I made with GameMaker in 2001, at age 13.  It used the graphics of GameMaker's default Pac-Man-style "maze" game, but added special powers from numbers 1 through 10.  GameMaker was recommended to me by my older brother Justin, who had, in 1998, at age 15, had made "Polinvaders", a Space Invaders type game with the Republican elephant taking on the Democrat donkeys.  And that was long before politics was so popular with young folks.

One of my favorite "games made by some guy" was Pac-Guy, a clever parody of Pac-Man.  But, because he made money from the sales, the maker of Pac-Guy was ordered by the makers of Pac-Man to cease and desist Pac-Guy.  Pac-Guy had enough unique differences, I felt, to get me pissed that it would be banned for similarities, especially since it clearly identified itself as a parody.  Pac-Guy would only move while the arrow keys were being held, and built up ammo to fire from the large dots.  Many secret passageways were waiting to be found, and there was enough story going on, and enough humor, to warrant its existence.  But someone got mad and had it taken down.  So it re-emerged as Pea-Guy, a green talking pea, and the games were redone.  So I figured, Mr. Triangle could be a way to bring back the old "Pac-Man with powers" idea.
