Sorry, NPT, wrong guy.
I'm all for supporting GM dev's, and on the larger scale, Erik Leppen is very underrated, so very cool to give him some support.
But this guy has 3 of the most played games on yoyogames.Bridging the Gap
56685 playsShoot 2008
24914 playsByteAlity Tower Defense
As far as the GMC and Yoyogames go, he's a colossus.
Combined with his already high profile from his great games, winning a competition gives a gold star beside his name, ensuring ALL his games.. even the non-featured ones, stand out on the YYG's website.
Underrated? Sure. Most
underrated? Nooooo way, hosea.
(And if you say he isn't getting enough attention here on the gmc, well many times people comment on the yyg's page, if that is where the download is. I sometimes comment on both)
But I very much applaud this topic in general. I remember back when Prison Ball was first released, despite it being rather low-profile, and rather flat tbh, it was really, really, really encouraging to get some flattering comments, or any comments at all to be honest. And when a player returned like a month or so later calling for it to be featured, it meant a big deal.
I think members underestimate how much value a simple comment can have. I noticed a few months(?) ago, a member here called Slayer64, (who makes cool games, btw) would leave simple comments like 'nice game' 'fun' 'hard' and such.
I was very much impressed by this. Up till then, generally speaking if I wasn't going to write a 'full comment', I didn't, somehow naively thought it wasn't worthwhile replying.
(view-topics started, find games, play, comment)
I played a few of them on YYG's, and a few of his other games when he was under a different name, (you may remember Mark Overmars reviewed one of his games, back when he was doing stuff on the glog) but haven't really commented on his topics here[time to start rectifying that!!]. He also receives a bit of love elsewhere for his games, but strangely has a very low profile on YYG's/GMC
Would love the community to show him some more support, he's a fantastic, hardworking dev, and I really like what I see coming from him. Watch-this-space, because at the rate this guy makes games, it's gonna fill pretty quickly!!
