The Man-Storm begins! Our demo is done!
Gachi Muchi Kun here \(^o^)/
Our demo for Man-Storm and the Manhood of Might is done and ready to be played.
Man-Storm and the Manhood of Might is our new game and a loving parody to the 1980's cartoons and action figures a lot of us grew up with. A more innocent time when your morals came from a hulking, steroid addled man and his team of fellow hulking, steroid addled men and monsters in easy to digest 23 minute chunks.
Story: Man-Storm and the Manhood of Might was TV cartoon and action figure line that swept the world by storm in the early 1980's. Made by the Wowzo! toy company and it sold like hotcakes. It featured the hulking, ginger haired barbarian: Man-Storm. Who under the guidance of his father, King Hungdor, brought together the mightiest heroes to form something more powerful and stronger than a fellowship, or even a brotherhood... It was a Manhood, a Manhood of Might! Together you and the Manhood of Might protect the peaceful lands of Maleternialand from the evil Brutevil and his Massive Manfiends. Who plot at every chance to bring chaos and destruction to the good people of Maleternialand. They even managed to make King Hungdor disappear in an attempt to plunge Maleternialand into chaos. Only Man-Storm can save the day.
Our hero (you) is a massive Man-Storm fan, perhaps maybe shouldn't still be at his age, but we digress. Due to a mysterious circumstance, you find yourself swept out of your own world and awaken in the real world of Maleternialand and in the body of Man-Storm himself. Now you must play the role of Man-Storm, protecting the good citizens and dispensing the good values of truth, self confidence, friendship and other stuff. And also trying to get into the pants of a palace full of hot, virginal man studs.
Come feel the storm... Man-Storm and his Manhood of Might!

*Updated 10/2 to fix a few glitches and some grammar.
Please note some of our 2D interface graphics are still unfinished, so we apologize for some of the b/w art you may see.
Thanks everyone, and we hope you enjoy our game \(^o^)/
We have a handy dandy FAQ to introduce you to Man-Storm and the Manhood of Might.
Q: What do I need to run Man-Storm?
A: You will need a windows 7 or greater operating environment and a monitor that supports at least 1500 x 900 resolution in order to see the game. You will also need to change your language settings for "Non-unicode text" under control panel -> regions and languages -> Administrative. This option *must* be set to Japanese in order to run this game as we made it using a Japanese game development kit. See picture below for Win 7 reference:
Q: What type of game is Man-Storm and the Manhood of Might?
A: It is a point and click adventure game set up in an episodic format.
Q: Episodic? Really :|
A: Yeah, really. It's a win/win for both us on the dev side and you as the player. It's easier for us to make and speeds up development time. It also works more organically with the story format of cartoon episodes. It means you guys will ideally get games faster and we can build up a better world for you.
Q: Is there lots of sex in your game?
A: Not in the demo. Full game will have more sex.
Q: Why 3D? What happened to 2D graphics?
A: We love 2D, and would love to do more 2D graphics. Unfortunately, the reality is from a development stand point is just waaaaaay too time consuming and a burden to put on one artist. 3D graphics is faster to produce, easier to keep characters on model and allows the artist some downtime as rendering requires time and allows our artist to take a break.
Q: Are you taking pre-orders for this now that the demo is out?
A: No, not at the moment. When the 3d graphics and story is done for the final and we're in beta testing and waiting for final 2D art, then we will probably start pre-orders then. We want it to run more smoothly this time. Best case scenario maybe around the beginning of Decemeber.
Q: How much is it going to cost?
A: We hope to keep the games at the same $15 price point as the Meat Log Mountain games.
Q: I really liked the demo, what can I do to support or help you out?
A: Well, since we're all a little rusty or new to game development, let us know if you like the demo and the story and characters. Good feedback is helpful and appreciated :3
