Laser Industries 3 is the third installment of the Laser Industries series. I was making these games one right after another at the time. It’s a long story why I decided to go with cute Gophers as the main villain, but the slapstick dark humor I came up with resonated with people for some reason.
Fun fact. The game was originally meant to be a lot longer, but I ran into what was probably my very first technical limitation. The audio was causing the game to get very large, and with Multimedia Fusion 1.5, I didn’t know of a way to compress the file size at the time. This meant that if I added any more levels, it would result in slower download speeds. Even though 30 MB is not much these days, it was an eternity to download in 2006. So, I had to drop a lot of the levels though a few of them did find their way into later game projects.
Nearly ten years later, I did in fact compress the audio and made the game playable in a browser. I actually expanded upon the original 2006 game with a save feature, a new hub area allowing you to revisit previous levels, new higher quality voice lines, and easier access to the game’s secret areas after you unlock them at least once.
