[Quest] The Fair-Use Follies of MegaDude!

on: March 11, 2016, 12:03:10 pm
(Author's note: this is an experiment, so rules are going to be pretty loose.
This is a Quest-format adventure, meaning I draw the world and put up obstacles for you to overcome while you get control over your protagonist MegaDude. Suggestions will be taken as thoughts running through the protagonist's mind, spurring him either to action or back sass. Sometimes both!
This isn't going to be a particularly serious quest, mind, but if this test run is successful I might do more! Maybe! We'll see!  :y: :y: :y:

Also, if you see a ">_", that's a prompt to enter the next slew of commands!)



Your name is MegaDude. You came into existence in 2003 when a 15 year old boy in japan tried to make a game for his terrible original character (you).
He got about halfway through drawing your spritesheet, the startings of a tile set, and managed to sort-of cobble together the first level. Kind of.

Then he just quit entirely, leaving you stranded here with only one functional attack, your PEASHOOTER.
You have no jump animation, you slide across the ground instead of walking (let alone running), and you can only face right.
Frankly, your life sucks rancid donkey butthole right now.

Finally tired of not being able to even look left, you've decided to make your way into an actual game through your own grit and determination.

But first, you have to figure out how to get out of this horrible glitchy waste.
Thankfully, your programmer wasn't exactly great at coding, so this shouldn't be TOO hard to break completely, right?

I feel I should clarify, art quality will increase dramatically once this story gets rolling. Please don't let the starter graphics scare you off.

Up-up-down-down-left-right-left-right-B-A-start.

He was a flighty nerd. of course he would have put in the Konami Code without linking any reasonable action to it. Good chance it breaks the game.

This is both creative and funny. I'm not sure how to continue from that start, so yeah, I'm intrigued.

Nice Concept. :)

But just a question out of curiosity:

What engine will you be developing in, just curious.

Psst: Click the spoiler!
This isn't actually a game! It's a forum adventure, where you control the actions of the character (megadude) and I, the author, draw up the art assets and craft obstacles for you to help megadude overcome. For example, right now, he's stuck being unable to go left towards the goal due to not being programmed with the ability to do so. There's a tree entity that seems unable to stay properly still, and a completely immobile enemy sheep! See if you can figure out how to get him to the left, or find another more creative way to solve the problem!
Feel free to suggest, I don't really have enough workable suggestions to continue and this is a really fun way of telling stories.

You feel a bit ill, yet oddly impressed.
>try to collide with tree and sheep, firing pea shooter as fast as possible_

You move right and fire WEPON at the same time.
Angry_apple.mob gets offended by your senseless aggression and starts clipping into you. You are unable to move!
