On the Rain-Schloped Precipice of Darkness

Post by Snuffles »

I heard that Lee and Nibs might be checking out the Penny Arcade game this weekend. Cool! Let me know if there are any sticker needs.

Schloptastic!

Hi Snuffles... OMG!!!!

Lee couldn't sleep last night so she woke me up and we downloaded and played the demo for Rain Schlopped Precipice of Darkness!!!!

It was SO COOL!!!!

We named our character "Snuffles" in honor of you, Snuffles!!!

There's so much to say!! The coolest part I think was the voice of the narrator. It's the same voice that was on the trailer for the game, the deep dramatic voice. Hearing Tycho's over-dramatic words read in that voice throughout the game is SO COOL!!! Wow!!

It's also HILARIOUS!! And get this... first you walk around and then you meet a CAT!!! And you have to talk the cat and your choices are like: Say hi to the cat, Meow at the cat, Purr at the cat. And you can "Meowow" and the cat's kind of confused. And then you can choose "Try to Purr and Meow at the same time" and you say "Mwwroor" and the cat gets insulted! But if you purr then the cat becomes your friend and he joins the party!

Then in the battles, we had another "team member" and it was the cat! But we had to wait for him to power up and it took FOREVER because he was NAPPING! Then when he finally was ready and we clicked on him, he just walked out into the middle of the battle and licked himself for a bit and it did only 1 damage to all the enemies and the narrator said "Frankly, I'm a bit disappointed in our team member." Hoo Hoo!! Then he went back to napping and it took like another 3 battles before he was powered up again and ready to come back for the same thing. Hoo hoo!! CAT!!!!

Here, Lee wants to add some stuff now:

The whole game plays like a comic strip. Dialogue happens by a new comic panel jutting up from below that has the characters talking in it. When you walk to the right long enough you end up hitting the end of a frame of a comic panel and then it jumps you into the next frame. The cut scenes are also amazing- showing kind of a zoomed out view of different comic panels but only one is animating at a time, yet you can still see the others, and thus a bit of what's about to happen before it happens. I've seen other movies try for this effect (The Hulk) but never so successfully.

I was also amazed at the fact that the character you initially create (hair, clothes, size, etc) is then shown in every drawing, cut scene, etc, and animated with your chosen stuff. That must've been a ton of work that Gabe did to draw every possible character you could generate in every panel for every situation. Holy wow!

Ok back to Nibs now:

Yeah, so I wonder if you guys could play the demo? Maybe it would take less RAM. Anysneech, it was awesome and we can't wait to play the real game!!

There were also lots of other funny jokes! Like every item you pick up says something funny and especially the narration is SO FUNNY. Hoo hoo.

Yay!!!

Hey Nibs!

Guess what? We played the demo too - just like you! Peaches insisted that we name the character Sneeches. Then we ran into the same cat that you found. That cat was SO lazy... like a Schlop cat. It was fun!

We also found a box of fireworks that exploded when we clicked on it!

Spore

Post by DJ »

Mini-nibs told me about this game called Spore where you can make any types of creatures you want. Here is a video someone made of Snowy and three Gundys: http://youtube.com/watch?v=UexVE7xmsX8

Do you think Lee will make one with Schlop?

Spore troubles

Post by mini-nibs »

Hey DJ, Peaches was really excited about making a version of Sneeches in the Spore creature creater so I tried to run the free trial program... but unfortunately it said our graphics card was not good enough. But maybe Nibs will check it out since he is running a sweet new computer - if so here is the link: http://www.spore.com/trial

Also here's one somebody made... of PB?! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRalaJXqtZI&NR=1
Care for a little Nibs?

Bunny fright

Post by Petri »

I don't think Duddles should watch that video or else it will give him scary dreams. Is that even a bunny?

Hey Shnoodles!!

I passed the new GROW game you posted about!!

It was a little tricky- lots of false positives, but i figured it out with Nibs' help!!

Hoo hoo.

Now I need to go back and play that puzzle game you played a month ago that sounded cool.
