The Hideously Epic masterpiece returns, by the good graces of the only one who can.

Spoiler for:
If there's anything making games has taught me, its that originality and creativity gets you good response, which I thought surprising where basically everyone is ripping each other off, this game was created as a Testament to what originality can produce, its not a game for everyone, but it was a very special moment of my life when i first released this on VX.net years ago, I had established myself creatively, and the thread has 10 pages worth of feedback, praise and reviews.

It was a success... releasing it in it's first demo on 3/14 was one of the biggest changes to my life. Since then, it has grown massive.
Spoiler for:
-Laidback easy going RPG Combat
-Loadsa' Fun minigames.
-Over 20 boss fights.
-Uncompromising surreal art style.
-Custom everything pretty much.
-Cool battle sequences.
-2 Acts as well as some of Act 3.
-Well placed music.
-Intense picture cutscenes.
Spoiler for:
On post-humanity earth, the mammals of the world have grown Intellect, and the future seemed bright. But it doesn't take a fool to know peace never lasts forever. The reason the humans fled is revealed, a deadly gaseous mouth of mysterious cold evil, one they would call "Maw". Imprisoned by the successors of Humanity, Maw would only need a bit of patience to escape yet again.

It now falls onto the paws of the most unlikely fellows imaginable, to destroy Maw, and restore peace to Mammal Earth. And likewise, protect the rest of the Universe.
Spoiler for:
Rolly Fatdog
Species: Beagle
Age: 4 human years
IQ: 126
Origin: New Jersey
Gender: Male
Weapon Proficiencies: Fisticuffs, Shuriken.
Rolly is a rather dim-witted level-headed Green Beagle whose favorite food is Radioactive Truffles, which can be blamed for his lime green fur, below average Intelligence and an often ridiculous amount of strength. He stands out as the level headed figure of the group, he stays out of fights between Pep and Tristy because he has been scared by Tristy before. He seems to have an undying loyalty to his friends, and will defend them or stick up for them if they seem incapable of doing so. He enjoys a limited spectrum of Interests, brawling, eating, sleeping and cooking. He's a pooch of simple tastes.
Quote from: Rolly
I love a good brawl!


Pep Cookiedoe
Species: Tabby
Age: 3 human years (9th Life)
IQ: 145
Origin: London
Gender: Male
Weapon Proficiencies: Rifles, Bombs.
Pep is the unpredictable mood-swingy mildly insane member of the group, a lot of his actions seem to not have any relativity to the current crisis, sometimes though it turns out whatever weird thing he was doing was actually incredibly relevant in some unseen way! There's no method to his madness, only madness to his methods. Pep seems nulled of personal morals or rules, he doesn't speak much of his past but from what he has revealed, it seems he was an infamous renegade or thief of some kind, which possibly explains why he starts with a gun.

His apathy and empathy are often masked by sarcastic tones and its rather rare to see him go out of his way to express emotion, despite his near-insanity he does seem to legitimately care about his friends. He has a psychological addiction to Red Cordial, which is to blame for his red fur, lack of common sense and bad hair day condition.
Quote from: Pep
Oh, do f*** off.


Tristy Heals
Species: Mountain Kangaroo
Age: 5 human years
IQ: 168
Origin: Mallanganee
Gender: Female
Weapon Proficiencies: Boomerangs, Staves.
Tristy is an honest happy-go-lucky Kangaroo, when the game's present day is first visited, she had only known Pep and Rolly for 30 days. Her history is a fair bit less cloak and dagger, and she is seen to be a heroine but she never mentions it unless pressed. Her mind is very often in the moment, she doesn't like dwelling on the past and while Pep does a good job of irritating her, she does her best to only reprimand him when it has just happened. More often than not the subject is only broached again because Pep or Rolly decide to bring it up.

Even though she looks perfectly normal and sane on the surface, she does show moments of worry, especially when pressed on her past and it seems now and then that shes hiding something, Rolly has some social IQ and never asks her about the matter. Pep asks with wild abandon, probably because he doesn't fear her angry moments as much as Rolly does. While not possessing some sort of oddball infatuation with a consumable food or liquid, Tristy does seem to enjoy fresh fruit, particularly Blueberries and Grapes.
Quote from: Tristy
You were fun. I wish more things I killed had a bit of sass like you.


Limbo Mingo
Species: Skeleto
Age: 314 Human years
IQ: 154
Origin: The Necropolis
Gender: Male
Weapon Proficiencies: Shields, Swords.
Very excitable and easy-going, Limbo seems to find enjoyment in almost anything. He likes children's parties, they are sort of his thing. In the Necropolis he was the Party President, which is a huge job, but he enjoys preparation as much as the party itself. How he gets roped into helping the crew of red green super bean is related to some controls in the Necropolis. Presumably a BIG RED SHINY BUTTON because when are they ever NOT DANGEROUS IN THE LEAST!? He gets returned to the living world somehow and Rolly invites him to the party under the clause that he may die if he hangs out with them.

Unlike Pep, Rolly and Tristy who are fighting for peace, Limbo is just tagging along to see if he can return to the Necropolis by way of death magic. Soon enough Limbo begins to warm up to the heroes, especially Pep, and often he throws a party for them when celebration is in order.
Quote from: Limbo
"Push the BIG RED SHINY BUTTON" he says, if I ever find that
damnable winged beaver. I'll make him party until he cries!

Download by clicking the image below, you will need RPG maker VX RTP installed. Not the program... just the RTP.
Spoiler for:
The game is rather large now, and may lag on some lower end systems.

The main story takes about 5-6 hours of a day to complete for an average player.

The game is hideous, but amazing. In the words of my friends Usagi Shinobi: "You've made this game that is just, it's... well it's hideous, but if you used realistic graphics it just, it would feel off! it just... it was! There's no other way I can really describe it, I can't wrap my 'murican brain around it."

Dark and/or creepy undertones may surface to those with an open mind.

Pep and his character are becoming rather popular in some pockets of cyberspace.

Limbo is often labelled as best character, simply because he moonwalks in battle.

Compared to the original Triad, Limbo has a lot less lines in the game even accounting for his late invitation to the party. Primarily, he's an extra. The focus of the Story is on Rolly, Pep and Tristy.

The very first demo release for this game was on 3/14/2011.

I ask for no currency or money when downloading, if it happens some ads appear when you go to download that's a mediafire thing and clicking them will not effect me.

If you notice someone is missing from the credits who should be there, let me know. If I didn't credit them, its because I failed to find source file and thus, the one who made it. It does not mean deceitful credibility is what is taking place here.

Bumping this, its a fair way down the list.

So just today, I made this.
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5L78bHUiKE" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5L78bHUiKE</a>


I've also been working on my colour arrangement, which might be better in 1.2. See below for examples.
Pep showing true joy.


Maw as he once was, a blue gassy face.

People have said they preferred his old form, and I must say I'm starting to agree.

If you did, you'd be instantly wrong. If you talk older as in, above the age of 20, then that is the majority of my audience for some mind baffling reason.

I find it funny that they actually expect something professional when they aren't paying a dime for it, but if they dont want to play the game its their decision, and their loss.

Not to be on my high horse here, but this game has already been on 4 forumds before this one, one with over 9 pages of posts, mostly compliments. So forgive me if my reply comes off as cynical, its not meant that way. I did actually purposefully avoid this site until now for a reason, a lot of the people here a very elitist, which is odd since I didn't even know the rpg maker community had elitists. Not that I mind, infact its been the first time people have said anything about my post presentation.

I appreciate that you aren't being blunt, but trust me, some people complaining that the colors hurt their eyes or that my graphics are terrible are all things I've heard before, I'm trying to get better, but for my own benefit, otherwise I don't really care.

To be honest, I am just glad to have a post here at last, you guys have been far less dismissive than the guys over at rpgmakerweb. Also, just to let you know, this game has had many patches, I have simply given you the most recent one, its started from 0.1 and gone up.
Spoiler for:
0.1
0.2
0.3
0.9
1.0
1.1
1.1.4
1.1.9
Like that, I also omitted just about every bugfix patch.
It's longest living thread, and the one with the most posts can be found here.

If people here can put down their bias for my oddball coloring and actually try the game they might find they enjoy it, but prejudice is a powerful thing.

From what I've observed on the IRC, its my colouring that people are getting retinal cancer from, I dount anyone who spoke about it has even considered downloading the game.

Your an update manic, i can tell because it looks like you update as soon as you fix a bug. not necessarily a bad thing, but if i were in your shoes i'd give major suspense in time for your next update

I fix bugs when they are gamebreaking, or just heavily annoying. I am able to spurt out good content on an amicable level, buts its more gradual then you may assume, all the patches I listed above have been to add content outside 1.0 (fixed all errors in 0.9) and 1.1.4 But this project has also been around for over a year now.

Are you suggesting I purposefully hype my project?

That sounds like a really terrible idea. When you hype things people expect gold, standards are increased, where when things are just out of nowhere, everyones like... huh, when the hell did this happen?

Hype will never increase your project's success, it will only give it higher expectations, or kill it completely.

*edit i'm deciding to try it... And it is the largest File on my drive O.O
If you have fun and enjoy yourself, please feel free to write up a review, I've yet to get one for this patch.

Its size can be blamed on multiple content patches and a length of 5-6 hours, I actually had to trim down some quality on the jpegs just to get around the 128 mb size limit.

I think its mentioned, but you'll need to extract the BGM.zip and put it in the Audio folder within the games root directory or you'll get "Cannot find file: "FilenameHereLol.ogg" or something equally retarded.

Why use really large .jpeg while .png is smaller but pretty much the same quality?
Doing so may drop the amount of space needed for your game BIG TIME...

Just an idea though, your game, your choice :cheese:

PNG is much larger than JPEG, but the quality is a lot better. Switching to PNG would actually increase his file size.

Exactly this, I'll probably make them PNG's again in 1.2, the resolution is quite ghastly. Originally I didn't have the seperate BGM folder in seperate zip, but now I do so I can actualy make graphics a little bigger. Since I'm no longer restricted by the clinically retarded 128 Megabytes compression limit default to VX.

Tried it out myself in saving the same file as PNG and as JPEG and trying to get the exact same quality. JPEG comes out as one huge file while PNG is a lot smaller for an equal amount of quality.

This is not a debateable subject. PNG preserves pixels, JPEG compresses them. If you save a JPEG in ultra-super high quality it'll be bloated and would easily be tons larger than a PNG, at least when it comes to file-size (I'm betting this is what you did, or you used some other program like Paint which has the worst JPEG support ever).

This is a very relevant and super interesting article about it. Don't ever use JPG in your Maker project, the image dimensions are small and they get blown up when you go fullscreen, exposing all the disgusting artifacts they're cluttered with. Always use PNG :mad:

Thanks for the info, I'll do that in the future.

Looks like I'll be making another build since me and a friend spotted a few bugs. None you should actually encounter if you dont go to Gaseous before your meant to, which is the reason I didn't spot them.

This will give me a chance to relingquish the use of Jpegs entirely.

What Amycha said, and also... my initial closedown of the thread was spurned on by the fact i hadnt slept in over 24 hours, and thus my rate of rational thinking was lower than usual.

I shouldnt go by a bit of snappy shittalk on the IRC to base the probability of shutting down a thread, but anyway its open again.

I dont think Ill be going back to the IRC though, though some people there are nice, theres also a lot of vulgar loudmouths and people who just irritate the hell out of me. Like the ones with ADD that cant stop making me play stupid irc based games.

The ones who just lack the capacity to give a shit im okay with, since most of the time they keep to themselves. usually they only speak when I ping them by accident.

But yeah anyway, Ive found a far more severe error, which can be easily fixed thankfully.
scripts.rvdata
Place that in the games data folder before you fight pyro, I'll be hopefully releasing a patch soon which fixes that error and replaces most jpgs.

As for how the games progressing, well.

I havent done incredibly much, but enough to make act 3 feel awesome already.

Roll across a skybridge avoiding traffic and lightning bolts while rolling off or battling opponents is only starting it up.
Then you are on a traintrack death course with trains coming your way, jumps from track to tracks and falling down is game over.
To top it off, a giant skydive down to earth avoiding missiles and trying to grab toast when your health gets low...
Yeah, first 10 minutes of act 3 = action-packed minigame triad.

Then asides from solving some mysteries surrounding trity your on your way to byteopia and thats where my pen is stuck currently.

I've had a lot of distractions, the minecraft server I play on has gone 24/7 recently, I've gotten heaps of games to play on steam along with other things.

I've also started trolling on google+, quite successfully too.

Infact people find a lot of my copius shit funny and ive gotten multiple friends I never plan to talk to and +40

Just from being a snarky sarcastic troll, people are weird.

I use this as my avatar, drawn completely from scratch.

Now I can give my trolling subjects eye cancer AND rustled jimmies.

Hee hee, hoo hoo, haa haa.

Sooooo, I've been testing it and it's quite interesting.
Though I found a first typo: "An animals gotta do what an animals gotta do" needs to be "An animal's gotta do what an animal's gotta do"

But so far, since my comp is a bitch in being really slow, I can't tell you anything more...
Though, ME LIKEY THE RED BUTTON!!! Even though it gets you killed...
Also love the laughing at the end of battles...




As blonde as can be!!!
Doesn't mean I'm the dumb one...

Now, I understand that you did say save before experimenting with the big red button, but, here's the deal: That shit's annoying. I hadn't bothered to save yet. I was actually enjoying your game somewhat and appreciating it for what it was, until I got an instant game over for no conceivable reason. I didn't feel like doing any of that again so, I went "fuck this" and deleted your game from my computer.

I know you think it's cute, but it's really just a good way to annoy the people who take the time to play your game.

The gameover screen in the first battle was similarly confusing, not amusing as what might have been intended. Let's strive not to confuse or annoy the player next time.

The game seems competent, and it has a certain charm to it, I suppose, as long as you're not expecting anything epic (or even terribly witty). I can't comment much more about it, seeing as I didn't get past the trio's apartment building. What really kills the game is the deluge of inconvenience masquerading as humor. Get rid of 'em.

That's all I can really say. I was enjoying it, for what it's worth, but the insta-game over button was practically insulting.

I support:

Oh, in my first game I used a red button that destroyed the world too... It's something that should be somewhere and you might want to give it a cutscene like (***KABOOM*** Oh noooo, you just destroyed the world!!) thing...

Also, tell people to save regularly or even ask if they want to save on leaving a building...
Maybe you want to make the Heelfoxes less common or slower as well.

I'll address these issues when I am less tired, right now I am not in a good mental state to do so.

I've slept, time to adress the red button menace...

It was originally in as a debugging feature but i decided to keep it in, though I fear despite my warnings people have pressed it and not found reason to come back to the game.

As for the Gameover screen in the midst of the tutorial, I could very easily remove it... and I might, relying on it to serve as a gimmick is kind of weak even if it isnt as harmful to the red buttons.

I will have to address the red button menace differently, since some people have liked it, and realised they deserved its dark reward after not saving as instructed when fiddling with it.

Its a good idea to save in this game often anyway, I'll see what I can do.

oh god ahahahahahaha
when the fuck did i say you could make a playthrough
no im kidding it was awesome

Why is it that when the subject of bizarre concepts is broached, your feeble will encompasses the most disallusioned form of surrender imaginable? :3

Really, you should expect a game to be Bizarre when it is made by one who has that very word in their alias.

As for the lag, I have yet to experience it on my end, and ive only got a dual core, it might be caused in part to your recording program. I had the same issue when making the trailer.

Also, you've fallen into 3 troll traps already. xD

The Arrow keys to move thing was a joke, but you feigned the opinion it was unfortunate reality.

I'm actually glad you skipped the battle tutorial, that stuff might have driven you insane. xD

Especially when I psyche you with the game over screen of death, oh yes, your sanity might have been quite in question at that point.

I encourage you to keep going, your reactions are simply 'fair dinkum'!

Hee hee, hoo hoo, haa haa.

Also yeah Pep's a cat, when he goes transparent hes got his stealth on. The stealth that is completely unusable in player hands but that helps in certain eventuous circumstances.

You think a cat using a gun is odd...

Insanity may not be beyond you yet. >;]

I go by the standard rule of "Fuck you, I'll make playthrough if I want to" :P
Then show it to you and remove it + cease & desist if you do not wish your game to be displayed.

But thank you :)

Incorrect actually; I knew it was a joke, I just couldn't believe you actually told people how to move using the arrow keys.

My sanity was in question the moment I starting trying to talk to the pink cat.

In that case, since you too are Australian, I'll have to incorporate some Australian accents and words.
"Too bloody right, mate"

A cat with nice accuracy; in Brisbane is odd, yes.
I wouldn't be so surprised if it were America, Russia or Korea.

Insanity will not visit me yet; your game is NOTHING compared to
'Revenge of the Sunfish' ;)
