Time for an update

I just finished writing a new CrazyDad adventure, it was very hard to do, not because the plot was complicated or anything like that, but because I feel like I’m all out of ideas,
For me, it’s a bit difficult staying original after creating lots of games, so I think a little timeout – about 1 month or so – will give us the time we need to think, learn and write cool new stuff.
But that’s not all. Chrome has begun blocking flash by default, which is a wake up call for us. This means, in the long run, that we will no longer be able to produce viable web games.
HTML5 can’t handle the complexity of our games and this means we will have to come up with a different solution (e.g. mobile games, downloadable games etc.)
Either way, our work on H17 is continuing and we will be launching a new website, dedicated to horror movies, books, games and comics, just in time for Halloween.
We still have 4 games to release before taking our short break (Mad Head, Pizza Quest, Jack Dagger’s Treasure and Crazy Vacation), we hope you’ll enjoy them all. Keep in mind that we will continue updating our blog during the break.
That’s all for today, have a great day!

    Take your time! And maybe another contest for writing stories, so other people can help you with new ideas 🙂

    • We do have plans for a contest, but it will be about something else…

  • Riley the Llama

    So sorry about the Chrome thing. 🙁

  • KingVip3r

    I really hope you guys don’t move to mobile or downloadable games, as many of us are unable to do that. It really sucks that Chrome does that, but I hope something gets fixed. I really wanna keep playing your games:[

    • Personally I hate mobiles. The screen is too small so you can’t go into high details in there. But either way, we will continue to make games for PC.

  • Dora

    That makes sense, it must be hard! It would be cool if you set up a special page here for ideas and it could maybe inspire you or even become a game, so that after your break you have fresh new ideas of your own, and ideas from everyone else if you need a little inspiration or idea 🙂

    • That’s a good idea Dora, I think I’ll do it!
      Thank you.

    What you need is a vacation. Book a flight somewhere nice and go relax. That’s what I always do to clear my mind. To go back to the topic of chrome issue, I’ve been getting blocked from playing your latest 3 games which is really disappointing because I can’t download anything at work so the way it was working before was great. I also tried Mozilla Firefox and IE but still nothing unfortunately. 🙁
    Do you guys have an Instagram page for Carmelgames?

    • Hey Lizzy! Thank you for your comment.
      I really do need a vacation 🙂
      We don’t have Instagram account right now.

  • Ritu Priya

    So sorry about the Chrome issue.
    But we really love your games and please do not stop making these awsome games.
    and we are eagerly waiting for the new games that is going to come.

    Pls release your next game fast.
    #feeling very bored.

    • Don’t worry, we won’t stop making games 🙂
      We’ll release a new game next week.

  • VirgKiss

    Will all of your next games be downloadable?

    • We’re not sure it, but it is one of the options we’re considering.

  • Darkskull8

    Hey I know a browser that can use flash and can play your games Here’s a link https://www.waterfoxproject.org/

    • This actually looks like a really cool browser, we’ll check it out, thanks!

      • Charly Gulati

        UC browser works good as well.

    Make sure you complete ALL THREE STEPS to fully enable Flash:

    Type chrome://plugins into your Chrome address bar and check “Always allowed to run” for Adobe Flash Player
    Go to Menu (3 dots) -> Settings -> Show advanced settings -> Privacy -> Content Settings -> Flash -> Manage Exceptions and add the Kongregate URL and select “Allow” under Behavior.
    Finally, go to chrome://flags and enable “Run all Flash content when Flash setting is set to “Enabled” and then restart Chrome. No problem with flash games for chrome.

  • Arceus

    You can’t even watch a YouTube video without Flash… I wouldn’t worry about it too much for the near future.

    • This used to be true, but not really anymore, YouTube is using HTML5 extensively and doing so successfully.

  • Maryam

    please do not charge us for downloading the games and there is no problem on my computer maybe because my region is different its pakistan

    • If we’ll be able to then we won’t, but we’ll only know if this is the case later on.

      • Charly Gulati

        I think you should ask all the people to use UC browser to play your games as it supports most of your and others’ games as well

        • That would be a good solution for our regular players, but except you guys we have millions of other users who will keep having these problems.

  • Josh

    If you do choose to go mobile with your games, please put them all in one app. It would be a pain to constantly be downloading and installing new games, but if they’re all in one it would be much easier.

    • We will try to make it comfortable, it also depends on the revenue model.

  • Iqbal Ansari

    hey carmel, when will u keep another contest

    • We don’t know yet, but we will have one for sure.

  • There are softwares to export Flash games into HTML5 ones. Can’t you use one of them?

    • The programs are for Flash animations, not games :

      • I have seen many games which are created with Flash and exported, such as girls games with many elements (Enjoydressup.com, Cutezee.com, …) I don’t know if that helps.

        • It’s possible to convert any game (using a long and tedious process), we’re checking our options.

  • dizquz

    Most of games on the web are Flash based and most of people use Chrome. I think there is nothing to worry about. Playing in the browser is the point though.

    Also there are potentially lots of ideas for new games. At least several titles are awaiting continuation. I am sure that after a short vacation you will get back with a hit!

    • We live and breath this field, for years now. We can say as a fact that the use of Flash is decreasing and so is the revenue which is being generated from its content.

      • dizquz

        Good news is that demand for browser games is increasing. As the problem affects everyone in the business, the solution should soon come into view. There is no other way.

        • I hope you’re right 🙂
