About Technology Showdown

"The series' timing, design, and sound effects were of a higher caliber, and presented beautifully in HD. Yet, it still held the ol’ quirkiness of the old Computer Showdown episodes."

- Ken (Hildron101010), the original creator of Computer Showdown

"This is the best remake ever for an existing season of Computer Showdown that already looks like garbage!"

- Nick (eNetro314)

"The best Computer Showdown remake ever!"

-  Topitoomay

Technology Showdown is an action/adventure animated show, produced by SFC Animation. The show was originally meant to be a remaster of the original Computer Showdown episodes from 2007 to 2008, but has since become a favorite of many as part of SFC's library of entertaining content.

 

The first episode, Apple vs. Windows Part 1, debuted on July 29th, 2015. The second episode, Apple vs. Windows Part 2, debuted on August 10th, 2015, and introduced voice acting into the series (but only for a couple of characters), including new and changed dialogue from the original source material. The third episode, Apple vs. Windows Part 3, debuted on August 26th, 2015, and introduced voice acting throughout the entire episode.

 

During the show's run, a lot of effort was starting to be put into the series. The fourth episode, Icon Wars (also known as Apple vs. Windows Part 4), debuted on December 17th, 2015, and introduced live-action scenes, new characters, and much more. It is currently our most viewed episode of Technology Showdown and our most viewed video to date on our YouTube channel, with over 40,000 views and counting.

 

The fifth episode, Apple vs. Windows The Finale, debuted on June 18th, 2016, and introduced new designs for the characters, including facial expressions, as well as new characters being introduced. The first five episodes of Technology Showdown is known as Season Zero.

 

The Season 1 Premiere, Technology Showdown: The Prologue, is scheuled to be released in 2018, and we are planning to push it to its limits, with animated 3D scenes, original 2D and 3D backgrounds, new voice acting, new characters, enhanced special effects, improved animation, the works.

 

As always, we hope to bring you guys something new for each episode!

About Misadventures of Apple & Tux

"The Misadventures of Apple and Tux was funny as heck!"

- TheCodingGuy

"It is so funny, keep up the good work."

- Sabrina Aganon

The Misadventures of Apple and Tux is a series of animated comedy shorts, produced by SFC Animation as a spin-off to the Technology Showdown animated show (see About Technology Showdown for more on that).

 

Development of the series began in October of 2016 as an exclusive to the Codename Early Access forum (which was shut down before the years' end due to a DoS attack), but production didn't officially commence until July 2017. The first episode "Introducing Apple" was released on Vidme on September 16th, 2017, with it being released onto YouTube the next day. We plan on 3 episodes for this year, all of them focusing on our main characters from the Technology Showdown series.
