Milkcan.com (partially lost promotional interviews; 1999)
UmJammer Lammyis a rhythm-based game that was released in 1999. It was a follow up to the PlayStation classic "Parappa the Rapper" which was released in 1996. The game follows a very shy lamb, named Lammy, she wakes up only to find that she has 15 minutes to get to her band's debut concert. Introducing the games main trio, Milkcan.
The website itself could still be found on "The Wayback Machine." But even it can't uncover some missing media from the site.
Milkcan.com was created in 2000 and got shut down in 2001. It was surprisingly popular, there is a Shout! option, where you could post your thoughts or emails about the game, there was a good 20-25 comment, both English and Japanese people posted their feedback.
Hot Chart[edit | edit source]
Hot Chart is the first page you can find on the Milkcan website, it's promoting the UmJammer Lammy arcade game UmJammer Lammy Now! Information of this is lost, with only one short video of the arcades existence.
CH55 McTV[edit | edit source]
McTV (Milkcan TV) is the second page to the Milkcan website, where we see 3 individual interviews with each band member, and special interview, which we can only assume could be Chop Chop Master Onion since he appears on the TV screen, but we'll never know. One interview has been recovered, and that's Katy Kat's interview.
English Dojo[edit | edit source]
English Dojo is the third page to the Milkcan website, it was to help Japanese speakers understand the English lyrics in the Make It Sweet!/I scream! albums or soundtrack. Displayed under the paragraph explaining what the page was for, each song from the game or albums were listed. All you had to do was click it and it would take you to the lyrics, one side English and the other side Japanese.
Oken'n Roll[edit | edit source]
Oken'n Roll is the fourth page on the Milkcan website, this was a special karaoke feature for the Milkcan - Make it Sweet! the album, all you had to do was pop the CD into your computer CD drive, and it would display the lyrics onto the screen-player on the page. The lyrics were in Japanese, so we're assuming this was for people who had trouble understanding the English lyrics.
Shout![edit | edit source]
Shout! is the fifth page on the Milkcan website, it was a way for people to share their info and opinions on Milkcan, the music, the game, anything. In order to 'Shout,' you would need to put your name, age, gender, email, title, and the most important part, your thoughts on the topic. There were rules that you needed to follow for this, rules are stated below from the website:
No stuff that gives out the answers to the game, allowed. It just takes away the fun from those who are enjoying the game right now. If you just gotta write about it, Say so in your title, so those of us who don't wanna know can just skip it. No fighting. We just wanna ask everybody not to write anything mean or hostile to any and everyone out there. No plagiarism. If what you write and say belongs to someone else, just don't write it. No business or commercial activities allowed. No trading of any sort allowed. No election campaigns allowed. AND please don't start scouting people to any organization of any sort. No pornography or any X-rated stuff allowed. We don't want our children getting any ideas. If you think what you write might be against the Japanese law, try to refrain from writing it. Last, of all, we just want to tell ya'll to be nice and have a great time.
There was an amazing amount of people who took part in the Shout! factor, people really dug this website when it was around.
Friends[edit | edit source]
Friends is the sixth page to the Milkcan website, it listed the affiliates to the website, such as an official website for UmJammer Lammy that was on the PlayStation website for awhile, but it seems that it was taken down as well, the Japanese Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) corporate website, and a link to the art developer's website, which is still active and you can go on by the way!
Candy[edit | edit source]
Candy is the seventh page on the Milkcan website, this page shows 3 files you can print out, one of the UmJammer Lammy Now! arcade game, one of the bands playing up on stage, and a 'rare' American advertisement from the PS1 magazine, it says more things about the UmJammer Lammy arcade game, but not nothing important, but be careful about the size of the images it says, because the file might be too large.
Solider[edit | edit source]
Solider is the eighth and last page on the Milkcan website, its to credit those who worked on the Umjammer Lammy soundtrack and Make It Sweet!/I scream albums.
