We're excited to bring you the exclusive preview to the newest homebrew game by KHan Studios, the same guy that brought the Ultimate Frogger Champion. The game is slated to be released some time near the end of June, so stay tuned and visit the forums for more information.

I had a chance to preview this game for a few weeks now, and I can tell you first-hand that despite the simplistic graphics, this game is splendidly addictive (OK, and a bit infuriating, but that's only because it was written to be quite challenging). I couldn't put it down and keep coming back for more punishment.



Check out the trailer:

Looks amazing! Love the graphic style. Reminds me of all of the "video games" my friends and I used to draw in our notebooks in elementary school.

Wow, this looks like a ton of fun!

Am I right in thinking that much of the game plays similar to Donkey Kong jr.? What else can you tell us about it?

Nice work to everyone involved!

Unfortunately I had never played DK Jr. when I started making this game, so I had no idea.  But yeah, after I started showing people, this is exactly what everyone says.

It is a lot like that, gameplay wise, but without the platforms you can walk on (and with a lot more crap to dodge!)

Plus I have a lot more levels/unlockables/secrets/achievements.

I went hungry one day because I tried playing this for a 10-15 minutes during my lunch break and ended up not eating. Damn you, Kevin.

I called it DK JR + Day Dreamin' Davey

Love the artistic style of this, reminds me of long days in middle school spent drawing in my notebook.  

Awesome stuff Kevin

On a more serious note, I've played EarthBound today for so long, I feel all tense and mentally worn out.

Awesome. Love the idea behind the design. It's so simple that it's one of those, "Why didn't I think of that?!" type of ideas.

-------------------------

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Ferris pass out at the Let's Play Gaming Expo last night. I guess it's pretty serious.

Oh, my WTB thread is very popular. The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, wastoids, dweebies, Richard craniums - they all adore it. They think it's a righteous thread.
I'd also like to add that I've got my father's gun and a *scorching* price guide for aftermarket Nintendo games.

I'm excited--this is the first KHAN game I'll be able to get at the initial release!

Edit: I love Peter Gabriel.  Saw him last year

Have any GBA NFR games with back stickers for sale or trade?  See my want list below :)

This is the first and last time I'll say this: There is an easter egg in my game. The first one to find it and contact me directly will receive a one of a kind release of a game that I made that will never get released any other way. You'll be the only one with it.

I'm excited to say Study Hall is my greatest game yet.
