Epic Kitten is now Galaxycat

I wanted to make a post out of this ages ago but I didn’t think I had enough to say, I still don’t but it’s better with news than no news (which may contradict what I said earlier when I deicide to stop posting biweekly so that you could get better quality posts which now is turning into no posts at all. See what I did there? By talking about something for a large amount of words I now can announce something mildly important and make a proper post out of it. I am very sneaky.

Epic Hedgehog’s Birthday

This was put up last minute, I’ll change it tomorrow.

It’s Epic Hedghehog’s birthday again, but it couldn’t be celebrated in person. If it was celebrated then I didn’t get the invite >:(. Currently I’m doing something in relation to the closure of Adobe Flash, which I want to get finished (I’ll put it on Status soon), but then it’s going to be prioritized to the website (because of the deadline), the Pug & Slug which will actually be our 100th video, I have to get my Fortnite challenges done for March, then I have a surprise for you all and then it’s looking good for Epic Gang Adventures! 🙂

New Channel Art & Happy Holidays!

We have at last released the new Epic Gang channel art! I have been thinking about it since last Christmas when I got the idea to replace the reindeer with Epic Gang members, and now it’s Christmas, and my ambitions to get EGA done by 2020 have been changed because of the fact we are building MullMC. Instead of using Happy Holidays I said Merry Holdidays, which I realize now doesn’t have the alliterative ring to it, but anyways to celebrate, I made this collection of old channel arts. I’m also not forgetting about the Epic Slug video which will be both a birthday, Halloween, and Christmas/Hanukkah/December festivities/etc. special. So without further ado, here is the table and a long written out description in plain text as a punishment of me writing text on an image without copying it first onto the article!

See caption
The very first channel art, made with Microsoft Paint (2017) with purple on one side and orange on the other, with Epic Fish and Epic Tortoise on green and blue stars, alternate to their colours. Beneath it it says “Epic Hedgehog Epic Fish Epic Tortoise”, the old Epic Gang slogan with Sir Mull with weird hair and Epic Hedgehog in the Epic Gang logo, saying Celebrating 1 year in a speech bubble. In the next picture there are two pumpkins instead of Fish and Tortoise and white and black ghosts at the top. The next channel art has a blue background with all the members on it (the Epic Art) mirror flipped on each line repeated going downwards. (see Members for members) (2018, still MS Paint). The next one has the first representation of the Host, a ROBLOX avatar with evil eyes drawn on it. The background is now grey with the members having white eyes. The text says HAPPY HALLOWEEN and cursive “From the Epic Gang”. The next picture has a room with Epic Walrus and Epic Penguin as ornaments and Epic Duckling (now Owl) coming down the chimney (now 2019, Scratch). I can’t find the upscaled version for the actual channel art but it was probably the background with the blue and all the members (MS Paint). The next picture has a 3D triangle with autumn colours and black with Epic Hedgehog with a Marshmello background with a red triangle supposed to be a party hat on Hedge’s head. (Sorry whoever owns these assets I stole) Third channel art version made in Scratch and converted to SVG making strange shadows on the letters. I liked it so I kept it. All the Epic Gang are gathered around a simplified Epic Gang logo with two trees in the background. The text says “Animation, games and more!_” The underscore denoting a terminal/insert cursor. The next one has A blue sky, 3D clouds with a 3D Epic Bunny and “Epic Bunny has been hiding eggs!” 3D text and Hoppy Easter on the horison. Epic Bunny is saying “Find out more on our website! *squeak*” (now 2020) The next one has the Epic Art with “Happy 3rd Birthday Epic Gang” in a purple banner with the Epic Gang mascot with a camera on his head. The next one has the Host with two eyes and nothing else, like a ghost, and fine lines for hands. It says “all of the Epic Gang wishes you a” and then in serif capitals “HAPPY HALLOWEEN” with the Epic Gang Adventures logo and COMING 2020, something I didn’t get to because of MullMC/COVID-19. The image is very stretched. The next one is a dark blue banner with pixel writing saying “Happy Holidays From The Epic Gang” with a picture of the Epic Gang having a snowball fight with Epic Penguin in the middle of a lake on an icy island and Epci Fish swimming around. Epic Walrus is throwing a snowball at Epic Kitten with a couple more in his hands ready to throw. Epic Hedgehog is sticking his head out the window and Epci Tortoise can be seen inside through the right window. Epic Parrot is swimming overhead and Epic Puppy and Epic Slug is building a snowperson. The next one is a bright lime banner with Happy Easter written one word each side of a picture of Epic Bunny painting eggs with the simplified Epic Gang logo one one egg and the Epic Gang HR members and Epic Kitten. The picture is Scratch with everythign else being MS Paint, same as the last one. The next one is Epic Gang’s 4th Birthday theme, when we left to build MullMC with the “4” Epic Gang logo from the Top 5 video. The Epic Gang HR members Hedge, Fish, Tortoise and Slug on either side with “Check the website for updates” and “We’re coming back soon”. Under the logo it says “The Epig Gang’s 4th Birthday”. The current Chrsimas one, I wrote “last” for some reason. It has Santa Claus’s slay with the Epic Gang members instead of reindeers over houses. And that’s them all!

Introducing Epic Pug!

OK, I know there’s an Epic Puppy, but we’ll let them away with it, because they did contribute to the channel 🙂

We have a new member! Epic Pug is Epic Kitten’s friends brother and I’ve known them for a few years and when I was talking to them they were thinking of doing YouTube, so I said they can join the Epic Gang if they want. I had a look over the requirements and they were considered trustworthy by me (who is an honorary HR member even though I’m not in the theme tune) and has contributed to the Epic Gang (yes they will be in a video) so they are automatically in the Senior Squad! I won’t put a deadline on the video though, because I have loads of other Vent projects (MullMC, the news programme, Epic Gang Adventures etc.), but I’ll see what I can manage. 😉

oh yeah

It’s Easter! Other then the fact there is no work for school the holidays it seems like nothing has happened because my whole country is on lockdown. Epic Kitten got an Animal Crossing game and their equivalent is “Bunny Day”. I’ll need to change the channel art. I played the old Animal Crossing game and I played on the old one. Unlike the predecessors you can play 2 player but I was busy paying off my house loan in the old game. You can sell fossils you find underground or give it to the museum for “cultural development” so I only sell the ones that are already in the museums. In the new game you can only get eggs underground until the “Bunny Day” week is over so Epic Kitten is annoyed.  But I have nothing really to report back other then that the EGA script is coming on very well.

Update: Changed around the About page

There will be a lot of changes to the Epic Gang website in the Mullafacation redesign, but for now I didn’t really want to fix anything on the website but there was something I noticed in the About Us section that I had copied and pasted the same text that said “to see our history, go to About” even though you were already on about, and the way I said “If you think you have a talent we could use” sounded like it’s some premium club where you would want to work there even though they treat you badly. When you join the Epic Gang, you’re a part of it, so nobody is treated better then otheres, even though we have a ranking structure it doesn’t dictate how well you are treated.

Belated Pi Day

A Pi pie

Yesterday was Pi Day and Epic Kitten baked this lovely pie with the Greek letter for Pi (Π) on it. Yesterday was the 14th of March (written in the USA like 3/14) and that is PI day because Pi is around 3.14. The number pi is the length of the outside of a circle (the crusty bit on a pie) divided by the line if you cut the pie in half. I’m not very good at explaining it without an animation, but you can look up some interesting videos on it.

Mullafacation Status

Mullafacation Status is the new name for What’s coming up… But not completely. What’s coming up will still be used for the Epic Gang but Status is the new service that will give you what I’m doing at the moment. I will put waht project I am working on, and if I’m not working on a project I will put “Busy”, “On a break, back soon” etc. I hope this helps people out just so they know that their projects aren’t being forgotten about. If you want to check it out yourself, go ahead.

COVID-19 and the future of What’s Coming up

So in the past week I have literally not gotten the time to post or contribute to Vent projects, between Epic Kitten’s birthday and my own schoolwork. I will be more active in the next few weeks because schools in the Republic of Ireland (EG’s headquarters) are shutdown due to a worldwide virus known as COVID-19 (colloquially referred to as The ‘Coronavirus’) being declared a pandemic. I didn’t post about it because it’s not something that belongs here. It is dangerous to people with weak immune systems and they were closed because they wanted to stop the spread. Hopefully it will have an impact and let people halt it. I will be releasing a company wide What’s Coming Up hosted on the Epic Gang so that I can easily update it in the 2 weeks I have off. In relation to COVID, I won’t say any more in case I spread rumours, but I will say that that the truth is all available on who.int or your government’s news network like RTÉ or the BBC. Thank you for reading and stay safe.

Epic Gang is finally a Brand Account!

Since the start of the Epic Gang’s YouTube channel, it was just a Google account, meaning that I had to sign into Epic Hedgehog’s account to upload to the Epic Gang. We initially didn’t want to change it into a Brand Account because the comments would be deleted but Epic Hedgehog wanted a separate profile picture, so we separated the Brand Account from the Google account. There weren’t that many comments on it, and most of them were for announcements on the Epic Gang channel, and the others would have already have been seen. This means that multiple accounts can log into it, but be restricted only to posting YouTube videos, which is perfect for an organisation channel like ours.
