Billboard Art Contest! Win free Premium!

Hi,

So if you haven't noticed yet, theres a billboard on Dyson Rooftops thats looking a little messed up, thanks to vandalism throughout the years. The city is looking to get it replaced and they need your help!

Here's the billboard template: http://i.imgur.com/CUw4B1a.jpg

Send your submissions to my email: spasman@spasmangames.com
Either attach your art to the email or post the image link. (I suggest using puush or imgur). Remember to also include your in-game name so I know who you are.

Submission deadline is the same as the suggestion one, 8/31/2016

I will personally pick my top 3 submissions. The top 3 submissions will get a free Premium code. Then you, the people, will vote on the 3 submissions and the voted winner will get their billboard put on the Rooftops map and get into the Hall of Fame (in the credits). Wow!! Eternally cemented in B-Man history!!!

All accepted billboards will be added to a photo album on the Spasman Games facebook page for everyone to see. (at the end of the contest)
https://www.facebook.com/SpasmanGames/

Rules:

1. Use the template, keep the image size the same (320x240). Send it as a png, NOT jpg. Crappy compressed images or a photo of a hand drawn image (you will need to scan it) will not be accepted. It's okay if you mess up, ill let you know what you need to fix before accepting.

2. Racism, homophobia, sexism, general hatred towards someone, etc. will not be accepted, or even uploaded to the photo album, and I will shame you over email if needed.

3. Don't attach your stupid game suggestions to the billboard email or I will ignore it, please keep it on the forum or in a separate email at least. Sorry, it's just really annoying to have to wade through shit suggestions any time i interact with any of you.

4. Multiple submissions and submission edits are fine, but you can only pick one of them to enter, and i won't decide for you.

And here are some tips to increase your chances of being picked:

- Keep it lore friendly. I will probably cringe at billboards that feature self-inserts, clans or original characters that have too much focus.

- I wouldn't include me on the board, I appreciate it but I'm not actually part of the B-Man universe. (the survival boss isnt really canon, or that whole mode for that matter)

- The Somewhereland stick people don't wear clothes, they only wear hats/masks/crap on their backs. They don't have faces, they express themselves through body language.

- Despite what I said at the beginning, if you want to put your own vandalism on your billboard, thats fine.

- Hand drawn is fine, just make sure to scan it (nicely) and implement it into the billboard image before sending. Don't take a fucking picture of it with your phone/camera you doofus!!

I appreciate good art, but remember this game isn't exactly a deeply moving pixel art master piece, so don't feel intimidated if your art sucks. It can't be any better then mine.

As a final note, I'll only run the contest if I get a handful or more of submissions. If only like... 4 people submit an entry then I don't think I can run it.

The Future of Boring Man, Part 2

So some of you are saying a lot of dumb crap, so I'm guessing I wasn't clear on a few things.

"Abandoning"
This has been a nice word to see that makes me feel good and I'm real glad how grateful some of you are. The game is not being abandoned, a game CAN'T be abandoned if its finished. Does a construction worker abandon a house when he's done building it? Ridiculous.

Valve and Minecraft must have unfortunately raised the next generation of gamers to be entitled because apparently some of you are convinced that a developer has to anchor themselves to update their games for eternity. I actually like to finish my games, so if you don't like that, theres a whole list of Steam games that are right up your alley, labeled Early Access games.

My involvement
I don't plan on interacting with the community as much when the update is out, but the servers will always be up as long as people are playing.

Sequel
I have no plans for a direct sequel. Maybe a silly spin off game on mobile or something, but I don't see a full fledged sequel being possible.

Until GM gets server/VPS friendly features, or i somehow have the energy to learn a new language, don't expect a sequel or any more multiplayer focused games from me in the future.

Rewrite
Some of you have also been rudely demanding I rewrite the game like its an easy feat. If I wanted to do that, I'd just make a sequel instead, but you just read why I don't want to do that. Secondly, the game isn't very popular and doesn't seem worth the effort. On top of that, the small community it has doesn't even seem to appreciate my efforts anyways, so whats the point?

Updating
If there is a game breaking bug discovered in the future, it's not like I won't be too stubborn to fix it. It's not a decision set in stone, so if you're worried about some exploit being found, I will fix it if I think it really needs fixing.

Premium
Really depressing how I have to mention this but Premium will never be free. It's not a thing I'm trying to keep away from 10 year olds without a credit card, its a thank you to those who support me. If you want to give me $5, then thank you, have some hats. Thats it. You don't need Premium to enjoy the game.

Anyhow thats all the explaining I'm going to do. If you're still not happy after this, then you're probably not the kind of player I want following my work anyways. Stay gold.

edit: I know there are plenty of you out there who do support my work, and thanks, I know you're there. This game has just made me pretty grumpy the past year and I don't mean to lump you in with the others.

“A single amateur game developer did this, and it’s rare to see a stickman game flaunting these small details.”

“The only thing we’re not sure about is the title, Boring Man is a lot of things, but it’s definitely not boring!”

The game to me is kinda meh do to the lack of a good camera, I always find myself shot in the back cause the camera dosen't leave room to see behind you. The jump button and machanics are a bit wierd and hard to get used to, as well as everyone being stronger and smarter than you (or I just suck at the game). but other than that it's a good game. 8/10 I do recommend this.

It can be a fun game, but it's got a massive issue. The game only has US servers. So for me, someone who lives in Iran, I always have +200 ping, and often even more. Which means I can't understand anything that's going on, and I also keep losing connection.

I only recommend this game to people who live in USA. Anyone else? No, I don't recommend it to you.

This game, is absolutely ridiculous, there can so much happening at any given time, and the mutators make it even MORE ridiculous! there's so much stuff going on that it can be difficult to keep track of what's happening, but that adds to the charm, and the fact that you beat people with a board with a nail in it and chuck pineapples at people all the while people are trying to kill you gas grenade launchers, Drain-O crossbows, wrenches, and a laser gun called the Muleslapper. Easily, the best shooter I have ever played in my life. 10/10 like G-Sus.

Bored outta your mind? Play this for awhile. It's a nice little game to play from time to time.

Warning: This game can become rather addicting, even though it's a very small game.
I went from 5 hours to 20 to 40 and it's just so easy to get caught in it.

Protips: Mess around with loadouts, it's hilarious and can get you to the top of the leaderboard for the match.
You can change your stickmans color in the options (hint hint Camoflauge)
I was told you stop getting weapons at lvl 80 (makes sense, gonna see for myself.)

Personal favorites: Bow+sword, and double revolvers, kunai+double knives, suicide vest or kunai or boomerang and any of these loadouts with it.

"Give me back my loli !!!!"
10/10

Gameplay

The gameplay is is very good, there is a bunch of different gamemodes that are very unique, for example the capture the flag has turrents that you have to deactivate to safely capture the flag. The game is based around guns, however there is a lot of other special gadgets such as the grappling hook and lasers. The way the snipers work are also very unique as the game is 2d. You can also unlock different weapons by leveling up (The weapon you get is random) and the game is in no way pay 2 win, the premium ($5) just gives you hats and cool jump effects and doens't even give you more experiance.


Bugs

There is a few bugs/glitches that I think should be fixed. Sometimes the GUI is also kind of glitchy and I feel like the game was made on a low budget so I really encourage people to support this game by buying premium ($5) as I feel it would really help out the game as it has a lot of potential and deserves more players.

My suggestions

Some of my suggesitons to add to this game are these.

1. Add a party feature, normally me and my friend can find each other easily but when more players start playing this game I feel like it might be harder for me and my friend to find each other in the same game.

2. Fix the bugs, as I stated before the bugs can be a little annoying and the GUI is a little buggy sometimes. Also the team selection menu and the pause menu can be a little glitchy as well.

3. Please add different levels of different premium, like rank one stays the same, but rank 2 ($10) will give you even more hats and maybe even being able to customize what your character looks like (like how tall they are etc.)

My conclusion

My conclusion of this game is the game is not boring AT ALL. It is a very good game and I highly recommend and it is FREE. One of the best games ever, it is a must get.

If you like crazy high speed stick man action with tons of weapons and non-stop death to everything that moves, then yes. This is a game you'll love.
