About the Dev:
My name is Braden, this is a game I've wanted to make since I was a kid and I'm finally doing it.
I started developing this project and learning game design back in January 2016,
at the time of writing this there are over 47 dev vlogs (available at pla-toon.com or youtube  www.youtube.com/c/bradenlehman) documenting the process of making this game. Needless to say I'm excited to see what the game looks like when it's finished.

I had completely forgotten about pla_toon and am glad to see it's progressing somewhat. It's cool little shooter and is great to play.

Here's a play I did last year.

Regards

wobblyfootgamer

I had forgotten about that game mode! haha. And thank you it has been a while I'm glad I get  to keep developing it

when you add the game in steam the game will be free or what?

Hey it's free  https://store.steampowered.com/app/891220/pla_toon/

Hi, I purchased the original Sup-Ed and some of my friends like to play on the earlier versions, would it be possible for me to download the earlier Sup-Ed (I play on mac if the helps).

Thanks, Alex

Hi Alex, Sure I re-uploaded the earlier Sub-Ed versions, let me know if it lets you download them or not. The older versions can also be downloaded here if you're friends want them: http://soundandfurygames.com/update.html

Thanks for supporting!:)

Braden

Thanks Braden, I look forward to destroying my friends! :)

No problem Alex! Haha hope it goes well! I'm adding bots soon too so they'll be more to destroy:)

Great, looking forward too it!

Hey, thanks for the game, but my brother and I played again after not playing for a few months, and I feel like a lot of the fun parts have been removed.


We used to go on desert tower and try to reach the top of the babel like tower, while the other tried to stop him. The only way to reach the building was to rocket jump on top. With the new tower, and the sniper being only there, it's become impossible.

We used to fight in the forest map, but now that map is gone.

The plane with inverted x axis is nearly impossible to control, and impossible to aim at the ground.


The running animation sometimes stops, and we get stuck on our heads jumping stupidly all the time, and the controls feel like we're sliding all the time.

Hey thanks for letting me know! Glad to hear you and your brother play the game, I grew up playing games with my brothers and it was my favorite thing to do. 

You're right about there being less to do in this version at the moment, and the bugs, I didn't actually remove anything tho. I'm rebuilding the game inside of a new game engine that will let me build a bigger multiplayer game. So for a while it will have less features then the last one sadly:( but after a while it will have more then the old one did.

You can still play the old version that you remember here: http://soundandfurygames.com/update.html

it's the links in the green letters, the server should still be up to:) I just removed them from this site because this is my 3rd time re-building the game and having all the files laying around on here was getting confusing lol. Thanks for your feedback:)

Hi, is this game only playable through LAN? No online internet play?

(+1)

Hi, at the moment you can host and join LAN games, and there is one online public dedicated server that I host. I plan on adding the game to Steam in the near future so that it 's easy to host and search online games

Thanks, so if you add the game to Steam I too will be able to host my own online game?

(+1)

No problem, yeah that's my main reason for wanting to be on Steam. I'm filling out the Steam paper work today so we'll see how it goes. 


You actually can host a game now and have your friends join... BUT

you have to:

1. forward the 7778 port on your router to your host's pc's local ip

2. Know your external ip address (searching "whats my ip" on google with give you this) to give to your friends so they can join.

3. Host a "LAN" game

4. Have your friends enter your external ip address into the "join by ip" box


So that's why I want to be on Steam so you can just host, search servers, or join with the click of a button as opposed to all that nonsense lol

(1 edit) (+1)

I play on a Mac Book Air and on all setting lowest I could get around 13 frames 4gb ddr3 Intel HD Graphics 5000, And an i5 processor. It ran a lot better on the older version but id like to get the new features of the unreal engine that your adding but I don't know if my Mac can handle it also for some reason I couldn't  get the planes to fly and my character went limp, Great game I just hope you make it possible to run smoothly on the unreal engine like it was on unity :)

(+1)

Hey thanks for letting me know, I don't have a Mac to test so I like the feedback. I'm looking into more graphics options and rendering settings that let you disable features that cost a lot of FPS. I think i'll have them ready by the next update:) I'd like it to run as smoothly as the Unity one did too. Thanks

My game keeps freezing after a while. it then crashes. Help

Hey are you on the Mac or Windows version?

Windows.

Also, I LIVE YOUR WORK!!! YOU ARE AMAZING! :D

Thanks man! :D I'll run some tests to find out what might be causing it. I haven't seen it crash on mine yet, do you know if you're on the 32 or 64 bit windows version?

Windows 32 Bit

I am going to try to redownload the game. Will keep you posted

Just redownloaded the game and it works! Thanks so much for your help. I also just found out that you planes are destructable and if the plane has no wings at all (even the tail wings and rudder) It still flies. You get about 1 second of full control, then the only control available is the rudder. 

Awesome! no problem, glad it's working again.  I made a note of the biplane bug so I should have it fixed soon, thanks!

Hello! Why did the Unity version disappear ? The game was easier to start, and had better things to it, (in my opinion) is there a way to download it again?

(+1)

Hey! I took it off because I'm no longer developing the game on that engine because it's multiplayer system leaves a lot to be desired. And your're right it did have more things to do in it, they will all be added to the Unreal Engine version, and more eventually. But yes you can still download them here: http://soundandfurygames.com/update.html 

Oh, by the way, is it possible to host with port-forwarding on the Classic version?

(+1)

Yeah you have to forward port 7777 if you're hosting. then players can enter your external ip to join

Braden could you put the last version that you took out of the game but in 32 bits? is that my pc is a 32 bit windows and I would like to play the latest version of the game but I can not find the 32 bit one, I only see the previous one.

Hey I tried it a couple months ago to and it kept giving me an error. I'll look for some tutorials and try it again tho. Hopefully it works, I know there are actually quite a few players that use 32 bit windows.

Ok, thanks! ;)

Braden can you add the newest version to Mac as I have to play on an older version while my friends play on a newer version. btw great game

p.s can you add some Easter eggs me and my friends love to mess around and find small glitches or Easter eggs and exploit them.

(-1)

I'm hoping to have the Mac version available soon, when I was making the game in the Unity3D game engine all I had to do was press a button in the editor to make the Mac version. But on Unreal engine I have to install the editor on a Mac and export it that way. So far I've tried borrowing a friends Mac but I think it was too old because the editor wouldn't open, then I tried installing a virtual Mac OS on my windows PC but the editor wouldn't open in that. Lol so I'll have to get a hold of a newer Mac I guess. 


I like the Easter egg idea! I'll come up with some:) thanks for the feedback!

Will there be an ETA for an updated mac version?

(+2)

Hey Braden, 

Have you considered adding bots to the game? I know this game is meant to be played locally, but it's hard to get a good sized group of people playing the game all at once, so you could have NPC's fill in the gaps for games. Awesome game btw

(+1)

Hey Chilean, I think you're right bots would be fun! I've got a long list of features to add to the game and bots are on it. And thanks I'm glad to hear you like it!

(+1)

Great job. Very nice game !!!

(+1)

Hey thank you!:) I'm glad you like it

Hello Braden,

I've been trying for weeks to run this game  but everytime I try to it gives me a message saying "the data cannot be found"

(+1)

Hello Rathe,


Make sure you have these 2 files in the same folder:

1. plaToon.exe

2. plaToon_Data

If you renamed, deleted, or moved the "plaToon_Data" folder it won't be able to run.

Let me know if that helps:) 


Thanks

Braden

Hello Braden,

I've been trying for weeks to run this game  but everytime I try to it gives me a message saying "the data cannot be found"

I didn't mean to spam the server wasn't working so I pressed the send button multiple times

No worries it does that for me sometimes too

Hello Braden,

I've been trying for weeks to run this game  but everytime I try to it gives me a message saying "the data cannot be found"

It would be awesome if you could add online multiplayer to this.

I think so too, I'm looking into what the options are for having online servers. Thanks for the feedback!

Are you going to uptate the game?

Yeah I'm working on one now, I'm building the game in a new game engine so it might be a minute

Are you going to uptate the game?

My game keeps on freezing

HELP

Does it freeze when you load a level or just at random? Also you can press Alt+F4 (on windows) to close the game if it stops responding.

it freezes as soon as i open the game

i get one second to move then freze. 

Shoot it works on mine and my friends computers. I would try  making sure your graphics drivers are up to date.  I'm also working on a new  version now so if updating your  drivers doesn't work maybe the new version will work better.

Thanks man your the best

Thanks man your the best

I tried to update my graphics drivers and nothing happened. By the way i am on Core i5 7th Gen. My computer is an Aspire F 15. Thanks again for your help and I can't wait until the next update

he not update the game the game is end

:(

GG

Thanks White Fox!

When is next update coming? love the game but it needs more fixes and bots. Its been 2 and a half months since you last updated. I'm worrying you might abandon the project

Hey don't worry I'm not abandoning it:) I'm switching game engines so it's taking me some time to learn C++ and the new engine  but I'm hoping to have a playable prototype  soon

Add single-player plz

no update

..........................

What is wrong with the servers? Why can't I play with people? 

this game has nobady online

because it's not online, it uses WiFi for multiplayer

(+1)

is any one playing?

Yes

(+1)

is this going to be on steam????

(+1)

What genre is this

(+1)

I've never thought about it until now, haha. I'd say it's a hybrid

Are bots here yet?

(+1)

Can you use controllers on this game

(+1)

Not yet but it's something I'd like to experiment with in the future

When do you think that you will re-add planes?

(+1)

Hey Axeman, I got them back into the game today, they spawn in the levels, and can smash buildings haha. There's still more to do on them like the copilot seat and making them break and take damage. I'm aiming to release and update at the end of the month. I'm packing as many new features into it as I can by then:D

Sounds fun!

when he gets the rest of the content out

Hello, 3 things;

1. i really love this game and mechanics there are really smooth.

2. me and my friends love playing this on our LAN server at our high school and i would like to know if you can message me privately (You don't have to) on how to set up a lan for a game i am (Trying to) make for a school project

3. in a couple weeks i am going to buy the game when i get paid lol, i love it so far and i am sure it will progress even further later.

(+2)

Thanks, Deaudis!:) I'm glad you like the smooth mechanics, it was one of my goals for the feel of the game. I couldn't find a direct message feature on here so I'll just write it here. For setting up the LAN setup I followed a few youtube tutorials, you can find them in the comments section of this video under "Networking:" section:

Thank you so much for supporting too!:))

If you have anymore questions about the networking you can also reach me at soundandfurygames@gmail.com

Thank you so much, i will email you as soon as i can

(+1)

Hey! It's me again. Love the new version; but the crates never seem to hold anything for me. Is it a random chance thing, or is my game just buggy? I still see people running around with snipers and rocket launchers, but all the crates I open have nothing. Zilch. Nada. Just curious; love the work.

(+1)

Hey JB! it's a but in 0.17b that I fixed (I hope so) in 0.18b. There should always be an item in the crates. Doe's your menu say version 0.18b? Thanks:D

(+1)

nice game!,i like it!.Goodjob soundandfurygames

(+1)

Thanks man:D

(+1)

Also, breaking the trees seem to make them spazz out. when the tree is broke the house part stays up. Maybe add some physics to it

(+2)

Yeah they go crazy lol. It's not how I intended for them to fall, I'd like the treehouses to fall with them too. Thanks I added it to the todo list

There is a bug in the newest version where if you look up you can see your body. also good job with making the para drops be dropped be planes.

Thanks man, I see what you mean, I just tested it and it kind of blocks your view. I'll try and get the fix done in time for 0.18b

ok. good job though
