Category: MARDEK

Sorry about the delays. MARDEK is *done*, but it's not released yet because of things beyond my control.

MARDEK 3 is being sponsored by Kongregate. Originally, I included revamped versions of the first two chapters in the chapter 3 file, but CrazyMonkeyGames, who sponsored the original versions of the first two, didn't like the idea of the games they sponsored being under a different sponsor's branding, so they asked me to remove them in some way.
We came to an agreement where they pay me to upload the revamped versions in place of the old ones, which means I have to essentially re-release chapters 1 and 2.

I still need to add the 'branding' (sponsor logos, etc) to chapters 1 and 2, and have contacted CrazyMonkeyGames to ask about it, but I've yet to receive a response; emails tend to take time with this sort of thing since the sponsors are having to deal with loads of other games too and probably have some kind of life as well.

So, I'm waiting for email responses, and how long it'll take is beyond my control. I can but hope it'll be released very soon.


EDIT: Answers to inevitable questions so then I don't have to say the same thing multiple times:

You will not be able to load saved games from the OLD versions of chapters 1 and 2. I've gone over this many times before. This is because the game was recoded quite significantly. This is why I will be releasing the revamped versions of chapters 1 and 2, which have new content anyway so if you have a 'perfect save' from the old versions, it will no longer BE a 'perfect save' because of all the new additions (a significant one being a complete overhaul of the skills/reactions system; you'd have NO skills if you loaded an old save (not that you can)).

The new versions of the other two chapters will replace the old ones. This means that they'll be two separate files, and you'll be able to play them where you used to be able to play the others (on big sites that'll update them, anyway, like CrazyMonkeyGames, Kongregate, Newgrounds, and here).

Im sure that Mr. Pseudolonewolf is trying his best to finally finish this game and , to do so, he is more concentrated in the sponsership than answering our questions (sometimes already answered)
If it was released i am sure that tobias would certainly have told us so

-- Ugh... Last night, I had a horrible nightmare that the percentage bar had gone all the way back to zero. I watched helplessly as the number shot down, the bar just slid back, and then you made a news post that you were going to kill yourself! I started crying (in my dream), and then I woke up with a cold sweat.

-- I don't think that's really going to happen, but I'm glad it's not April fool's day, otherwise you could have something very similar to that...

Don`t worry,the horrible night monster just came to your house.Get some NMP(Night Monster Protection) and if he does come,Slay him with your GDS(Good Dream Sword) and Defend the dark Nightmareballs with your GNS(Good Night Shield) or get nightmared by a nightmareball.Lock all the doors and windows,so a Sleepmare spell doesnt knock you unconsious.


Im just kidding:New story.

Have a dream about you being in the world of MARDEK being in a party with Mardek.Dream that Muriance tries to decrease the percentage bar and you have to stop him.

Heh, Muriance survived that issue in the mines, so he will probably be back... Oh dear!

Try learning some offencieve light spells. Or buy a bunch of Pheonix feathers. They usualy do one-hit-K.O.'s for me.

Yes, I am joking, but why not be serious while doing it? XD

Not yet, I think he is releasing Mardek 1, 2, and 3 at the same time. Besides he would told us if he submitted the revamped versions on Newgrounds.

Actually, that's what this whole thing is about. Kongregate has already put its logo on M3, so now all that's left is for Crazymonkeygames to put their logo on M! and M@, and Pseudo will release them all. He can't release 3, until releases one and two.(Since people would like to have a save file from the first two.) He can't release M1 and M2 until Cmg responds to his E-mail, so he's out of luck until they respond.(If he tried to release M1 & M2 as is, then Cmg would sue him or something.)

I don't know if I missed a post of some kind or something, so uh, could someone either explain the situation to me or lead me to correct post? I'd be very grateful.

But what about the game size issue? As Pseudo stated a while back, wasn't the game significantly over the size limit? (Limited is 10MB if I'm correct, and the game was close to 17MB perhaps, and 8MB without any music?) Did he/you decide to take out a large portion of the music, cut it into parts of some sort or did you solve it in a totally different way that I haven't listed? I'm just curious to see how that whole problem seemed to have solved itself.

File size is not an issue. Mardek 3 and the new Mardeks will be uploaded to Kongregate in a matter of hours or days at the worst. Go to the chatroom. Pesudo is there.

What I am a bit 'afraid' of is .. if Pseudo is releasing Mardek 3 and the revamped versions of Mardek 1 & 2 at the same time, many people will want to play through revamped 1&2 first, before playing M3. That way, M3 would get less hits than it could which would result in Pseudo getting less money... :(

Of course I could be completely wrong.
Sorry, if that is nonsense. Even if it's not, I cannot think of any good suggestion.

I tend to agree with you... maybe Pseudo should post the revamped versions, wait a month (as hard as that may be for us) and then post Mardek 3!

Well, I don't think you'll have to worry about that. I think Pseudo posting the games all at the same time will mean a large number of people playing chapters one and two first, but eventually every one of them will most likely play M3, so he won't lose fans, to the contrary, he will likely gain many fans.

The only good thing about losing our saves is to choose what to play before: MARDEK 3 or the whole series again.
Think I will do it all over again after I beat MARDEK 3, Im sure I will have a lot of free time to do so.

Im just going to replay everything from the beginning. Chapters 1 and 2 have new stuff added to them which might make Chapter 3 more enjoyable. And Since the engine is redone, playing the first two will feel different then they did when I first played them.

Well I'm so anxious to play MARDEK 3 that I can't say that, I mean, I waited so long for this game, but now I have to play both games that are already out for me to play this one "right". I mean I'm wiliing to play them all again, but I want to try MARDEK 3 before, so I will play new chapter first, then the entire series AGAIN.
Also, I know that I can start out by playing MARDEK 3 right away, but won't enemies eat me alive? I mean if I remember correctly levels from the previous games acumulate right?

Your being pessimistic. :P I think that since he has the game completed, a sponsor for the game and he almost has it touched up and finished, it should be out in a couple weeks at the latest (depending on the speed of CrazyMonkeyGames).

This is not even remotely right.

Just think for a moment. If you look around a website or two, you will notice that Mardek 2 got about 1.5 Million views on CMG, 1 Million views on Kongregate, etc. That means that if we assume a dollar "buys" takes 2500 views, which is reasonable (based off of Kongreagte's developer share earnings), anyway, Just from those 2 sites, Mardek 2 made $1000. Add in the rest of the internet, and now remember that probably, much more people will play Mardek 3 than mardek 2 and anything under 10000 sounds simply funny.

Or, look at it from another angle. This game took 3 years to develop. Pseudo would not spend that much time making a game to sell it for $2000.

Or, look at it from a third direction. There are 5000 resisted users on the forums. If pseudo may the game Pay to Play, and every second person bought it for $4, and NOBODY outside the forum bought it at all, it would still net $10000. And clearly, these are pesimistic assumptions.

Why such a hostile reply? I'm just optimistic he'll win the Kongregate competitions. Obviously, he'll make a lot more money than that, but he'll have an extra $1750 on top because of that!

Indeed as a Kongregate user I was sure he meant the weekly and monthly contest. I am not as optimistic about it, but still other profits look good. However, reality will show the truth.

All you people are forgetting one key thing here... Pseudo doesn't like in Ameriqua. Convert all these monetary figures from American dollars to British pounds and then you've got an accurate statement (1 Dollar= .66 pounds)
