Work In Progress [7/15/2015] - Indie DB


100% Non-Commercial Indie Game

Since the death of Major Mylar, the Tan army has lost every battle. Even with the help of the Blue and Grey armies, it seems that the Green are destined to win and the war finally appears to be coming to an end after so many years.
Unbeknownst to the Green however, The Insane Grey Doctor who was recently declared MIA, is still alive and has been furthering his research that he started back in the tropical zone of the plastic world, going beyond zombies and instead has found a new interest in the insects of the real world. Spawning creature after creature of the vilest order, The Grey Doctor's power only grows with each passing moment. Seeking to capture and destroy the plastic world, The Doctor finally emerges back in the real world, with his new found army ready and at his command he launches an assault on all of the nations.But unknown to anyone, even Plastro himself, the Grey Doctor has also recovered Major Mylar’s remains and with them, has created a weapon so powerful, it threatens the balance of both the real and the plastic worlds...

Greetings folks! Lord Iheanacho here!

I've uploaded a video today explaining what is to come from us, including Army Men III's true status (no, it's not really dead), and future plans of Neotl Empire and it's YouTube channel. You can watch it below.


To summarize, Army Men III is postponed and we are focusing on Army Men Online from now on. However for now, Army Men Extended is on hiatus as well until we can settle the copyright issue once and for all. The reason behind this is because we can't distribute the game effectively without it. A C&D letter is one thing (barely an issue for our case), but we can't get the game distributed on platforms like Steam Greenlight or possibly even the 8th gen consoles.

So our new goal right now is to start small; I am working on a new indie game.

Can't announce the title yet as trademark is still a concern and a process I need to complete, as well as register my team as a company brand. Given the short scope of it, I will work on this game entirely alone (it's what I know best after all).

I also want to use our YouTube channel as a basis for tutorials in game dev and perhaps other endeavors such as music composition, art, and animation. This is something I already planned years ago when UDK was popular, however I lacked the time to do it and now I missed the spotlight for UDK as it's community is now a ghost town since UE4 became free. Now that I am done with college, I finally have the chance to get started. My tutorials will not be limited to Unreal Engine 4 however. I want to expand to other engines as well. I've invested some time with Unity & LumberYard lately and I am amazed to what has come with the engines, and I am eager to give Source 2.a try upon it's release. Speaking of Source, I will also go back to using Source Engine in the meantime and even give Source Filmmaker a try..

That's all for now, Lord Iheanacho signing off.

I have to admit, I'm perfectly willing to throw on the nostalgia filter full-bore, but I do have a question. Will there be a story fitting of such a return for the Army Men?

Yes, thats partially the reason the team is starting from scratch. We've overhauled the story plot and plan to overhaul most of the game. Some of the characters (like Niles) will still remain, and the similar concept we had before from the old stroy will return, but there will also be MUCH more to the game than tbe Beta had, including a new interactive and 'open-world' style main menu system and character customization feature.

Just wanted to express my heart felt thanks for doing something Army Men related and sticking too it.

Far too many people let their mods die and it's sad to see such a great concept go to waste in general, what with 3DO being out of business in all. It really brings back the childhood nostalgia! :)

I'm sorry to hear about your situation. I truly wish I could help, but I have nothing to offer. Keep at it, I would hate to see all of your work go to waste.

This is probably the most effort driven indie game I have ever seen and played. Yes, this game has a bug here and there but that can surely be fixed. The fact that this game haas been a success is mainly through himself and the commuity. The game play of this game is great and in my opinion I would like the music to be a little softer but thats what I think. People can say that this is a bad game but as long as this is effort driven I will always vote game of the year and game of everything. I love…
