The Adventures of Fatman, Special Edition.

AND NOW RE-RE-PRESENTED BY SCREEN 7
ON STEAM: http://store.steampowered.com/app/395250


Tired of being ordinary?
Feel an overwhelming desire to save the world?
Tired of wearing your underwear inside your pants?

Then rejoin our hero Fatman as he attempts to save the day in this re-mastering of my original game. Some additions include, an all new alternate ending re-voiced by Grundislav, a new revamped GUI with a much easier to use EXIT pop-up mouse mode, new backgrounds, easter eggs, increase of the default walking speed, and bug fixes galore! Yes, that annoying doughnut world bug has been squashed!

Update: March 23, 2007

I have given The Adventures of Fatman a complete revamp and decided to re-release it as a special edition. I’ve also got plans for a sequel. That means SOCKO! Entertainment is back online! Come visit me at www.socko1.com (mod note: site is currently down) to see what’s going down, see you there!

Hey Ionias,
looking great.

I'm definitely going to buy this game, as soon as I get money into my account and such :)

Love you for completing this game! :D

** edit **
I'll buy it next week, I guess :)
Hope you can get a lot of sales on this one.
Btw... It won't come boxed, will it? :P

Thanks for the support. I thought folks would hang me alive for wanting to make a profit at this bag. :)

Normal orders will get a printed cd in a sleeve. However, you folks going to mittens will have a chance to win a shrink-wrapped, jewel case, signed copy of the game. Ask m0ds for details. ;)

Finally!  ;)  The demo is awesome! I'm going to buy the full game as soon as I get a bit of spare cash.  Congrats Ionas! :)

And how is one "hanged alive"?  Is that different from regular hanging?

And btw, where is your server located, out of curiosity?  The 35MB voice pack downloaded in less than two minutes for me  :o


EDIT: what's your estimate for how long shipping will take?  I was just about to order the game, then I realized it if takes longer than about two weeks, I'll have to have it sent to a different address.

I'm hosted by the kind folks at adventuredevelopers.com ... I'm not positive but I think the servers are out of NYC? M0ds do you know?

Ok, that was a mistake on my part. I put 6-8 weeks just as a precaution. So I wouldn't get tons of emails asking ... "so like where's my CD dude!?"

I talked with most of the beta testers, whom all got free CD shipped to them. Almost everyone got the CD within 1-2 weeks. I've updated the website.

Adventure Developers is hosted by the LFNetwork. I'm not sure where the server's located, but I think it's somewhere in Connecticut, USA.

Normally our server is quite slow, to be honest :D

By the way, I loved the demo!

Okay, I'm taking a chance here and ordering it now, because I want this damned game and I don't want to wait three more weeks before I order it.  Send it fast, ok!?

Ooh, I'm downloading the demo. I'd love to get the full game some time. The screenshots are excellent. They bring a new meaning to "click to enlarge" :)

You'll just have to wait until I get a credit card...so in a couple of months. I've been putting it off for a year, because I'm afraid I might go in debt (not really afraid, because I'm pretty good with money, but I'm afraid I'll spend more money than I would otherwise). However, I'll be getting one shortly, as my dad says its important to have good credit rather than none at all. Or you could give me the game free...which solves the problem immediatly.
