> its origins are unknown
wiki page, no one knows who developed it. where it was developed why they did it, how much if any they were paid etc. all we have is the publisher who went out of business in 2005.
>that missing picture at the bottom that probably had the dev
I just don't like seeing threads dying without having any replies at all. Non-shitposting threads deserve a spot in the sunlight

I have 10 now and one is a QT 3.14 had 25 before the accounts begging me to sub got purged.
Here's that thing from the Funny Pizza Land/Worlds.com threads from awhile back.
>TFW /v/ isn't nothing but people who bait flamewars or spam substance-less waifu threads like it's /a/ 2.0.
ign says it was developed by "Handheld games"
Here it says the game was developed by Handheld Games. If you wanted to be an obscure developer, you can't go wrong with a generic name like Handheld Games.
I will never get to experience a comfy worlds.com thread ever again...
ok, gonna help out with this.
So far, these are the titles i have found they worked on. Anyone know of an old site or anything?
Need a little more info on them
Ok found the site, looks likt it's dead but you can see it in the internet archive.

Mystery solved. Now someone update the wiki article.
> In lavender town
Near the entrance of the tower. There is a girl there. If you let the screen sit for long enough. She will walk backwards for one step. No other NPC in this game does that.
I found out who the designers who work for the company are, handheld games apparently made the ds version of power rangers super legends and on the wiki page they are listed.
>headphones at high volume
>"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHM GON PLAY–"
Handheld Games is currently expanding our internal development team. If you think you have what it takes please email a copy of your resume with any sample attachements to Maria or mail it to: [email protected] Games, 4426 130th St. S.E. Everett WA 98208
And done, that's everything. Now fill out that wiki page so nobody has to do this again.
if anybody calls and they anwser, give them some words of encouragement saying how you loved cory in the house and green eggs and ham and it's a shame you guys don't even have a proper wiki page. tell them they are truly leaders in the next generation of portable entertainment.
And here is the studio address
16000 Bothell Everett Hwy, Mill Creek, WA 98012-1742
also, shot of the office in google streetmaps. Looks like they might not exist anymore
Oh fuck I've been in that office park like 100 times. It's been a couple months since I've been in that building, but if I recall it was mostly law offices, dentists and medical clinics in there.
you weren't here for the funny pizza land threads?
Got anymore 'spooky mysteries' for us to solve...
Hey did you make this?
Tom Fessler: Yep, it was a contract job by newKidCo under seuss enterprises using their IP.
We got it out in around 8 months. Bot much of a story
That's how it would go if you went down there and spoke to them.
everyone that worked on it, the publisher and the ip rights holder is listed.
Does anybody know anywhere I can Funny pizza land
Exactly nothing spooky about this
All over some twat on wikipedia not doing his job and listing the game as having 'unknown origins' which is shorthand for 'i was too lazy to figure out who the developer was'
Cunt. fucking /v/ managed it in 10 minutes
same here, they really seemed to have passion but lacked the staff.
> and honestly, accepting when some ideas fail to work
all the info is on their site you dolt. I have also spoken with these types of third party dev studios that are contracted to shovel out licened crap before.
All the good ones get bought up by the likes of EA (see rocksteady studios and their early work)
and the bad ones die, like these guys.
did a little snooping on the guy that founded the studio tom fessler.
look's like hes making shitty IOS games by himself now.

Guy hasn't made a single good game in his 25 year career.
Don't feel sorry for him, his studio was destined to fail.
>tfw you're the worst at what you do best
Some anons bought it and linked the download in the old threads. No idea how to get it for free now.
HAHA OH WOW
Turns out, handheld games' final game was a fucking NEW RATCHET AND CLANK GAME
It was cancelled however and they shut down.
Postan some spooks
>finally about to hit the big time after 15 years of making games like green ham + eggs and cory in the house
>Sony bosses walk in
HEY MR SONY MAN, WORK HAS BEEN GOING REAL WELL ON RATCHET AND CLANK ANDDD....
'let's talk in your office Mr Fessler, alone.
While searching for it on google I found this german site which had an "older" 2D version by the same name though.
Downloaded it and it's a point and click adventure, unfortunately i only understand a little bit of german.
I'll leave the link here if anyone's interested: http://www.freeware-archiv.de/FunnyPizzaland2D-Spiele.htm
> all he has left are the mobile assets from the rachet and clank game
> struggles to make that one lucky indie so he can be the owner of his own company again and regain the respect of his son, who he hardly sees anymore after the divorce caused by the shut down.
>Green Eggs and Ham is an official and subtle Game Boy Advance video game based on the book with the same name published by NewKidCo and released in 2003. It was developed by Valve Corporation, with assistance by Gabe Newell.
God damn it /v/.....
Tom finally got some recognition, and you do this.
What's that kids game with the really fucked up deaths? It's a side scrolling platformer. Called Darkness or Descent or some shit like that. Kid wears a hat and is attacked by darkness monsters.
>Not having an imagination
>Not filling in the blanks and getting that staggering sense of wonder at what could have been
Your life must be unpleasant without imagination.
wish I had a mobile so I could buy his iphone game and write an encouraging review.
hope this get's him a spark in sales, it's apparently pretty good for an ios game according to hammas.
>approaching his late 40's and falling behind the rest of his peers, tom takes one last look at his programming degree for c++ throw it in the trash.
'i could have made it you know, i could have made the next half-life or halo, if i had just beem given the chance...'
>the rope tightens and tom drifts slowly off into the darkness
>he finally finishes his indie game, its his pride and joy
>his son will love him amd respect him again
>hell, he might get back with the misses
>its critcally panned on greenlight
>he looks on his past works, cory in the house
>sees all these jokes and memes
>"i guess its time, i could only delay it so far"
>he turns on the helium tanks and rests his mind for the deep sleep
>"to my son, you will always be loved in this life and the next...
>YOU A BUSTA
>the same company made this
this is the only part of the story so far that's unbelievable.
are you fucking kidding? this kind of guys are the guys that are hired by the big companies when they don´t want to bother with beloved franchises anymore, this are the kind of people who made silent hill homecoming and post naughty dog crash bandicoot games, be glad he didn´t put up his claws on ratchet and clank, don´t pity him
what? his company really was working on a ratchet and clank for mobile but it got cancelled. even if it didn't go well he would have ties to sony, maybe get a job there or get some connections to hire decent programmers and designers.
>Green Eggs and Ham is an official and subtle Game Boy Advance video game
We're gonna PLAY green eggs and HAAAAM
>Handheld Games is a video game production company that developed Ratchet & Clank: Going Mobile. A sequel, Ratchet & Clank: Clone Home, was also in development, but was later cancelled for an interference in the Size Matters plot line.
>was later cancelled for an interference in the Size Matters plot line.
CANCELLED DUE TO MUH CANON
> implying it won't be reworked for ios
> implying it wouldn't be the next angry birds and rake in millions as well as revive ratchet and clank from it's slump
> implying tom won't be hosting sony's E3 press conference 3 years from now.
my high school used to be a war hospital and it was haunted by at least seven spirits , i may deliver some short greentexts if you really want me to
god fucking damn it cj you stupid ass busta all you had to do was eat the motherfucking breakfast
>googled it too because it was the odd one out of the bunch
>No user score yet Be the first to review!
you know what to do.
in a city called san luis potosí, the hospital is now a high school called margarita cardenas de rentería
no skinwalkers, only men on fire like the one that was found by a group of professors in the parking lot at the back of the school , it smelled weird afterwards according to them , one of them even became sick by the smell
So this is what autism sounds like...
>men on fire like the one that was found by a group of professors in the parking lot at the back of the school
TELL ME THE STORY
now I know why the eggs and ham are green, this game is dank as fuck
Worried hat #2 girl character confirmed for best waifu
Just imagine if tom is browsing metacritic looking at his old games and comes across these.
>the professors were just heading to their respective classes carelessly while discussing... teacher stuff
>suddendly screams , but not normal screams , bottled screams
>suddendly a guy on fucking flames bolts out of nowhere and burns to nothing, not even fucking ashes , it just dissapears leaving that weird smell
>like i said , one of the teachers got sick , another one of the teachers , wich was a total bro, told us the story and that it was fucking true and i know he wasn´t bullshitting us because we asked the female teacher that was there and she fucking cried remembering it
>still no wikipedia article on Handheld Games
Is anyone working on it at all? If not, someone could just use another wikipedia article as a template and change the text. Anyone know what would make a good template?
I found a working Funny Pizza Land 3D download link if anybody's been looking for it.
It requires a 4shared account though.
I dunno, but I got this from Wikipedia
> It was the only game developed by Majestic Studios, a studio founded in 1993 and consisting of Steve Bovis, Tim Croucher and Laurence Francis. The studio initially aimed to bring back the graphical text adventure genre on the Atari ST, and later the Amiga 500, culminating in a demo shown at the ECTS in 1995. Due to sinking demand of these platforms, the game was instead redeveloped for the PC and released in March 2008. In June 2008, discovery of plagiarism in the game led to its withdrawal from sale.
Holy shit you're right, we need a drawfag to make peacock cosplaying as that girl, or vice versa
I know its not a SG thread, but maybe, somehow, cockdrawfag will see this and do it
toppest of keks, green eggs and ham currently the highest rated GBA game of all time.
It deserves it, too. What a fantastic masterpiece. Truly a work of art, deserves nothing less.
jesus fuck /v/, we're definitely seeing this one bleed outside now
I do wonder if they'll know the story behind it though, this thread doesn't seem to have enough ebin potential to bring in the screencapping shitters that post on reddit or whatever
You're doing God's work, /v/, keep it up
this is how it always starts man
Lets enjoy it while its just this little thread, before everyone and their mother is ringing Tom's door, selling green eggs and ham GBA t-shirts and calling pawn shops/gamestop to ask if they have the game
I legitimately want to contact this guy to ask him what is was like making all of these shovelware games, and also just to make sure he didn't just off himself. Can only really find his twitter account which hasn't been used in four years.
>The eggs are green, and so is my score.
>Green Eggs and Ham boasts a complete 60 hours of solid gameplay, with a notable soundtrack deserving of a CD and symphony orchestra performance
>With customization deeper than Cthulu's Summer home, you can pick from a total of 4 different hats for your guy or gal to wear into combat. According to IGN; that's "4 more hats than TF2 had at launch". And baby, you know that gets me harder than a petrified rock.
Jesus Christ, /v/.
>>The eggs are green, and so is my score.
i fucking lost it
>That one guy going through and downvoting the reviews
Booooo. At least he didn't rate the game bad.
>tfw the guy playing through the game reminded me of the now permadead /v/vg/vr/ gauntlet
>Nobody did anything with his tweets
>The only likes are from some /v/ guy no doubt
This is way sadder than it should be.
guys, his entire twitter timeline is him talking about how ill he is..
he might be dead considering he just stopped updating it in 2012
>Definitely irritated c56 spinal cord today. May get xray tomorrow... Let's see how I feel in the morning..
Oh fuck, I wrote that one. It's a coincidence, the screencap was posted after I wrote the review. That's fuckin' hilarious.
fuck, never mind, he's probably dead anyways
But I guess he's got more attention and people caring about him that he had before, he will not be forgotten now
at least until the next flavor of the month
Imagine the edgelord faggot who actually complied this list and thought playing all those shit indie games made him some kind of mysterious badass

Their decisions are purely financial and are in the interest if limiting what they pay. We really need regulation of this industry!!!

There is no reason why they should have denied this surgery! Their last offer was one level ADR and one level of fusion. WTF?!?!

It's a shame when I'm sick and I have health insurance that I have to pay out of pocket for major surgery!! I'm gonna fight aetna!
Well done america, you killed him
>A staff member will review it shortly
I hope I don't get banned jeez
What if I drew attention to this whole thing
Seems like some kind of spine/neck problem.
Why would this dude favorited each and every one of Fessler's tweets?
imagesplitter.net and photoshop are your friends
well , here i go , this one is kind of sad tho
>there´s a little girl at the school door , like 5 years old
>a teacher approaches her because she wondered what a kid would be doing at the school at that hour since it was really early in the morning
>she said to her if she was waiting for his brother or something because if so she should wait at least 5 hours more until classes finished
>the little girl said that she wanted to stay there waiting , and that she wasn´t waiting for her brother , but her father
>"your father? why would he come here? is he a teacher?"
>"no , he´s a soldier , he said that he´d come to take me home when he came back from work , so i´m waiting for him here"
>the teacher went to ask the director about the matter but in her way there , another teacher asked her why was she talking alone
>turns out that the girl was a patient when the school used to be an hospital and her father who was on the army told her that he would come back from her , but he died in combat , and she died of illness as well
>but even after death , she is still waiting for him
it may sound fake but the girl and her father actually existed and are on the medic archives
the eggs are greener on the other side;-;
Maybe by phoenix rising, it wasn't a pre-meme reference to a batman film, but him referring to his death after living with an illness, and these fantastic shovel ware games you should buy for the iPad.
his yfrog page is all images of him in hospital and in pain
>try not to cry
>cry a lot
god speed you fucking magnificent shovelware dev
I remember playing that game in 2011. I think the skinless kangaroo guy is just a furry. There was a guy I knew on Uboachan and I walked into thema ll cybering as Dalek textures (with skinless kangaroo textures) They also made a Yume Nikki room. I need ot stop being a mac faggot so I can play that game again. It's pretty amazing.
Hide the thread if you don't like it, shithead.
I don't even know how to describe that experience.
>Came in expecting spooks
>Turns out /v/ is trying to discover the well-being of a failed developer
You guys are amazing sometimes
>No one read his tweets
>No one likes his games
>Terminal neurological disease
His name was Thomas L. Fessler
He never did a good game
I FOUND HIS Facebook.
He's gay, the guy faving all his tweets is his lover.
OH MY GOD THIS IS TOO FUNNY
at leasy hes alive
Welcome to the life of a programmer. You get no recognition if the game is successful, and you get all the blame if the game blows.
I need to get out of this thread or I won't be able to sleep tonight.
This fucking guy.
I love him
Probably needs a new thread, also I probably shouldn't stay up, so someone else take charge of putting it all together and keeping track of claimed pieces
That's precisely who gets all the credit for the games. About the only time a programmer had a moment in the limelight was the guy came up with a rather rudimentary gameplay idea that became Link Between Worlds. Him, and John Carmack.
I made a basic Wikipedia page for Handheld Games. If anyone wants to edit it, feel free.
