Press Start is now a mobile series! I recently signed a deal with a mobile content distributor to release Press Start toons for cell phones, and very soon they'll be available through several major distributors.

Press Start Adventures is essentially a repackaged version of "Bonus Levels". I've revamped the existing episodes, tightening them up and adding lots of new music and sound, and the result is great. But what's more, we've also got ten more episodes in production.

Oh, and if that ad looks kinda familiar... well, it should:

Oh yeah, what's the exclusivity of the contract? Will they also be available online a week after the cell phone debut ala the "Lost" mobilesodes? Will there be a $5 DVD of them in the future? Or a Ultimate 2-Disc edition rerelease/double dip DVD of "Press Start"?

That's an excellent question. They'll make their way online eventually, but I'm not sure if it'll be like the Lost mobisodes or if I'll put them out after the whole season has run. I'll keep you posted, though.

There may be a Press Start Adventures DVD, which would include both seasons, and hopefully some bonus materials as well. I've still got a bunch of interview footage for Bonus Levels that I couldn't squeeze into the Making-Of featurette on the Press Start DVD.

Incidentally, I've got a new series in the works as well, and it's totally not Press Start-related. Pre-production starts on that in earnest next month, so hopefully I'll have something to show you before long. Very Happy

I'll have to get back to you on that; unfortunately at the moment I don't have a list of the carriers who'll have it. Sad

As soon as I do, though, I'll post it.

Website for Press Start Adventures is up!

www.PressStartAdventures.com

Just put out the press release as well. The key news is that David Humphrey (Sonic Adventure 2's Shadow the Hedgehog) will be returning as Lord Vlad for several of the new episodes. Very Happy

Lastly, I might have something weird to post here on Friday. If all goes well.

Looks like they took the SNES list off though. God, I hate Digg.

Thanks!!

That's really weird about the SNES list. It's technically still there:

But yeah, it doesn't show up when I search. Why would it do that?

Okay, so this has been in the works for a while now, I know. RoboGirl took priority recently, but I was also waiting on dialogue from some of my guest actors. Anyhow, we're finally gearing up for a new season of Press Start cartoons!

Originally these were intended to go directly to mobile, but since the original episodes don't seem to be out there yet at all, I have a sneaking suspicion that I'll be making these available to watch online as well. We're still talking a few months before any of them are ready to go (our writer/animator is getting married next month and that definitely takes priority), but they're coming for sure!

And here's some artwork:

I'm glad they'll be online, because I don't have a fancy phone. I'm still making people watch the movie.

Speaking of which, a friend of mine has had it for a month... I need to get that back before he tries to make replicates with it.


RIP Hacker.

I'm in the same boat as Rycona regarding the phone issue. Mine's just a basic LG model and using the internet with that thing is a pain.

I haven't the foggiest -- I think the real question is whether Verizon will pick them up. However, your best bet will be to watch them for free and in higher quality at PressStartAdventures.com. Smile

Press Start Adventures is BACK.

And so is David Humphrey (Shadow from Sonic Adventure 2) as Vlad:
