From Make a Good Mega Man Level Contest
Jump to: navigation, search

Flashman85 (Nathaniel Hoover), also known as GeminiLaser, is a Minor Internet Celebrity™ known for his YouTube videos, Twitch livestreams, contributions to videogame website GameCola.net, blogging, and striking resemblance to a young Obi-Wan Kenobi. He participated as a contestant in Make a Good Mega Man Level 1 and 2 and announced the results of both contests via livestream. He is married to fellow contest participant Z-Saber and has played more Mega Man games than most people have heard of. Additionally, he curates what may be the largest list of Mega Man fangames on the internet.

On December 24, 2017, Flashman85 was announced as one of the five judges for Make a Good Mega Man Level 3.

Make a Good Mega Man Level Series[edit]

Flashman85's level submissions include Maze of Death for MaGMML1, Guts Man's Asteroid for MaGMML2, and the MaGMML2 Pit of Pits levels Chilled to the Bone; Clouded Judgment; Limited Attrition; Lyrickrolled; Ocean Sickness; Once More, With Ceiling; Rise to the Challenge; and Trash Dash. He provided general devkit feedback during the development of both games and playtested several contestant levels for MaGMML2. He also is a moderator in the official MaGMML3 Discord server and has made several contributions to the official MaGMML website and wiki.

To make the grand reveal of the contest results more exciting, SnoruntPyro gave Flashman85 an advance copy of MaGMML1 to play on livestream, announcing the results by playing through the submitted levels from lowest to highest rank. Including exploration of the hub, this took about 4 hours over the course of one livestream. The same process was followed for MaGMML2, but due to the significantly larger scope of the game, it took roughly 18 hours across 11 livestreams to cover every submitted level. Archived footage of the MaGMML1 and MaGMML2 results livestreams can be found here and here, respectively.

Other Mega Man Games[edit]

The Nintendo 3DS version of the Mega Man Legacy Collection features a challenge level (Fortress Fun House) based on a concept submitted by Flashman85 (full story here). Additionally, the fangame Mega Man Endless contains two level segments by Flashman85. He has also developed a fangame of his own, called OH JOES! (A Proto Man Adventure).
