Server Move

Saturday, January 6th, 2007 by Matthew in News

I just finished up moving Fun-Motion to a new server. It had been creeping up on the transfer quota at the old pace; there’s a silly amount of processing power and bandwidth behind it now. I ironed a few problems with some plugins, but if you see something acting strangely, or if the site is slower than before, please drop me a line.

To head this off at the pass, feel free to joke about how something is wrong with the site: the lack of new reviews. I know!

Anyway, I wish everyone the best of luck in 2007. For anyone keeping track, Fun-Motion turns one year old on Wednesday (January 10th).

    Dennis, I went to the crazymachines hompage and i imediatley ralised what kind of game it is. It’s one of those physics puzzles things where you make a chain reaction of objects to make something happen at the end of solve a problem.

    Unfourtunatley this ha been done befoure with many games including Souptoys, The incredible machine, Hell even The Incredible TOON Machine has done this really well and that was made 10 years ago!

    I’m sorry but i’m not prepared to part with $19.99 or whatever for a game that was done better 10 years ago…

    Sorry i don’t mean to be mean, I’ll buy you a drink some time ^^

    Well, i played ALL these games and Crazy Machines i think it’s better! It has a pretty good physics simulation! I downloaded the Full Version from a site, but i can’t put it here… Anyway, play the Demo and see if it’s the same thing that TIM…

    After playing Gish a couple of months ago for the first time, i started looking if there were other “small” games with emphasis on their physics-side. I came here and no need to say the rest: i read all the interviews, checked all the news, downloaded all the games and it became one of my favourite everyday-checking sites, even if there is a lack of updates :) Anyway, happy “in-3-days” birthday…………..

    Btw, i found a game called Hamsterball, it’s a clone of the good old Marble Madness, it has some great VS modes (like Gish) and i think you could give it a try –

    Ok peole, i just found something on youtube…

    I was searching for new physics games when i found this, now it’s not finished, and i can’t visit this guys website right now, but what i can tell you is that this this this is called Real Matter and simulates the destroying of the human body and courpses. here is the video:

    (this is not for the squemish!)

    reply me if you got the website to work :

    Hey Dennis, can you send me the link to the full version of Crazy Machines via email? My email is [email protected]

    Uh, let’s not turn this into a warez swap-group, ok? :-)

    I would also be interested in a review of Crazy Machines, btw. I’ve seen the game mentioned before, and it looks quite interesting.

    As I said in another thread, I think Tri-Achnid is a good candidate for a review as well.

    And, ofcourse, TrackMania United has been out for a while and it’s pretty much the best thing ever, so it should definitely be reviewed here. :-)

    Crazy Mahchines II is coming out later this year, the graphics have been beafed up and also the physics (destructible objects, HDR Lighting and alot more things).

    Hehe, I’ll be sure to reply on FM’s birthday. *action pose*

    Also, you could review which basically simulates any kind of physics pretty acurrately…

    Just IMO, though. =P

    WOW!!! Crazy Machines II is pretty cool!! And Beakless, the site don’t open here too… Someone managed to enter it??

    PS.: If you don’t understand my English, sorry, i’m Brazilian…

  21. on January 8th, 2007 at 5:50 pm

    Is there a Crazy Machines demo that could be downloaded? My German isn’t up-to-par.

    Or just the full thing, whatever. :/

    There’s little flags at hte top of the Crazy machines web site. Click on the UK flag for English. It’s not rocket science, guys.

    I don’t know how many of you have played a game called Penumbra, but whoever hasn’t, check the following site –
    Its free version is still downloadable and its commercial version, Penumbra:Overture, should be out real soon… I can’t wait for it, i loved its physics and the whole “survival horror” feeling…

    Btw, the site opens very fast for me, i think a bit faster than before, just to mention that…………

    Happy Birthday Fun-Motion!!!
    I’ve been watching this site for long and i think it’s awesome.
    But the thing why i posted here, is because i know where to download realmatter. Go to
    and scroll down until you see Real Matter. You should be able to download a zip package.

    Happy Birthday Fun-Motion.

    I’ve really enjoyed reading your reviews over 2006 Matt (still grin every time I think of Cat Sledding, lol), and I’m looking forward to seeing what treasures are unearthed in the months ahead. And I know it’s no use for a blog, but take your time :)

    HAPPY B.DAY FUN MOTION! I have been on this website since around October, I just never post much comments! (None at all actually!) I really like the website and hope there is more in store for 2007!!!
