I wonder how it became legendary, then.
Because it looks just like the girl who made the game, Mirage. She loves self-insertion, especially at her own expense. Mirage Fish exist in a couple of the other games too. It's in a good end of Imaginary Realm 2 (a giant one at that), and I think they exist as catachbles in Genetic Glow, in a similar situation to this forest minigame. They are equally freaky and useless. xD
Cool, didn't knew it was the game creator's face there. But I meant like, how did it became legendary to the game's folk, since it's so easy to catch?
I've seen it before already, in Other Age 2.
It was awesome.
That's the thing, my anwser si the same. It's not explicitly said, but the game creator made is legendary because it's her. It's one fo those, 'it's always been that way' things because it's the face of god on your fish. xD SHE created the legend. No one knows why, they just know it IS the legendary fish.
I played the demo and I remember that, so it must be Zelan's. There's also an option to see a movie full of naked people.
Awright. Neody's waiting on us. Have we found any useful items yet? Oh right, the stick and healing grass.
The compass is glowing. Something is hidden here...
Fucking imgur. I really fucking hate it. I think I lsot a screenshot again. I think the waterbottle was found in the bushes of the lower right of the screen. WHen you can't see th eitem, either hover your mouse over the area until it changes to the clicking finger, or, hit tab on your keyboard until some bushes are highlighted.
We're back at the pond with teh Legenedary fish. Those are the huge ones.
Look there, there's a tiny fish in the bottom right water! It's really fast, can I catch it?
Another screenshot lost. I caught a golden fish. It's that little quick one in the bottom right corner, all the rest are mirage fish.
This is a different watering hole. No fish, this is drinking water.
Here's the bottle hidden in the bushes earlier.
...Using it fills it with clean drinking water.
So now we have water, food in the form of edible golden fish, fire wood, and healing herbs for Neody's injury. We're only missing fire...
Sorry for shitty update with missing pictures. I don't knwo why Imgur doesn't upload every other screenshot. It doesn't show the pictures when they upload, only gives me a red x so I didn't know until now. I should probably give up the let's plays after this one, I'm truley incapable of doing it right.
Imgur occasionally craps out for me even on a good Internet connection. Lately it's been doing this thing where it says it uploads fine, but there's no picture actually there. So it's imgur, not just you. I don't know if you'd have better luck with Imageshack or something like that.
I've had to upload my last five updates one image at a time. And at one point Imgur wouldn't accept ANYTHING for about three days. It's really not just you.
I love Imgur, but it can be so tsundere at times.
I know it's imgur guys! And if I had more time, patience, and brain power I'd re-upload soem stuff like I did with YUmbrad's to fix the holes. But there's so much content in this route anyway, you won't miss it. Everything kinda looks the same or is shown more than once anyhow.
I just feel like a crappy host/player/narrator by being so lazy. This is the trouble with updatign every day, and doing a half-assed job sorting it to begin with.
I've been fighting with and trying to fine tune my compy all night. I really wish I had a better machine and proper internet. I hope you all won't be too disappointed. I'm so pleased so many people havetaken an interest in this thread and supported me. You're wonderful to hang out with! I can hardly bare to let you down.
I have worse let-down news though. Discovered ysterday that one of the minigames is actually too hard for me to finish. I won't be able to screenshot the proper end. When I get to that route, I'll be asking for you guys to help me maybe screenshot that end. So, if you're interested, practice hard! xD
Teddy, don't beat yourself up. You're dong a great job! It's not as if there are a whole hell of a lot of LPs that can say they update daily. Hell, I haven't touched mine in days. But you are, and your commentary is awesome.
Can you give us any info on the guy for the minigame? Like his name? There are a surprising number of guys in this game :o
EDIT: And for what it's worth, I couldn't really tell there was anything different when I was reading the update. And again, there are a lot of people who miscrop screenshots here and there. And again again, I'm guilty of it myself. So no worries
I didn't even get half the stuff you did before I ragequitted that minigame so you've already shown than I've ever seen, really. You're doing just fine, so don't get discouraged!
keifufairies It's... The one I don't want to do. Everytime I play it, it says I have 10 seconds to hit the directional keys enough, but it cuts off to TIME'S UP at 5-7 seconds LEFT when I don't keep up with where it's telling me to press. The other directional button game had all the commands appear on screen so you could practice and memorize them to eventually win. This one doesn't, and no matter many times I try, I only got WORSE.
If anyone screenshots that end proper, please don't post it until I ask! I want to show the rest of the route first and I have something to say about it. Plus, I have a predetermined vote order for the others I'm working through.
Ah, him. Well, I should have no trouble getting him to show up. The first few times I played the game, I thought it was a gag game because he was the only one showing up. Haven't beaten his game yet either, but I'll give it a go!
EDIT: AUUUUUGH. This guy just does not want to go down. Worse than trying to get a toddler to take a nap.
Sorry to double post, but...
HOLY SHIT, I WON.
Ironically, the first two I got were Dornick and Neody. Those games are so Nintendo Hard, I almost gave up and ragequit. I must have wasted a good 8 hours of my life accumulated trying to figure out Dornick. Neody's I actually won! You know, eventually.
Oh mercy, please tell me you saved pictures. I cannot. CANNOT. I tried, and I simply could not. I failed.
I am having worse computer problems than normal tonight. Let's try to squeaze out an update before everything shuts down. That's what she said..?
Oh look! I found Laze, that Dude mentioned!
OH THIS IS HELPFUL.
This sidequest is a reference Genetic Glow. I didn't figure this trick out until I played that game.
Fun Fact: In Genetic Glow, it's possible to get a dictionary to translate Myu-Myu language, allegedly. I tried, you still can only piece together a word here, a thought there. Perhaps two people who didn't speak English as first langue shouldn't have been trying to create a cypher based on it... Perhaps I'm too damn stupid to try to translate languages. (Althought, I can translate written Spanish.)
Tangeant aside, this happens.
REVEL IN MY BRILLIANT CROPPING SKILLS! xD Geez. This is the really bad one I warned you about.
Oh wait, I fixed it in a second save. Can you read it now?
Alright, spill the ultimate secrets.
..Which are actually clues to finding the key 5 items. Which we've already found all of, except...
Not really. There's two watering holes. They're both toward the very north of the map though, so I guess searching the south is a good start.
That is not fire. But it explains something the mystery character says later. Also, if you leave the acre after taking it and come back, it respawns. While still being in your inventory. ...Eerie.
That bush is glowing. That's what.. He said? I don't even know anymore.
YOU BET YOUR ASS IT'S TIME TO GO PYRO ON SHIT.
Hey wait. Water, food, herbs, wood and fire! We've got everything Neody needs! Alright, I'm coming for you babe! Told you I'd save you! Things are finally looking UP!
Now I didn't get any of the "That's what she said" jokes.
Yay, you did it?
...Is Laze a pokémon?
I think the key is not going too fast. At first I thought you needed to select the proper responses, but no. There's only one way to get his minigame once you're on the date anyway. I saved the pictures if that doesn't help. But I did manage to beat him twice before I started losing again, so that proves it is possible!
EDIT: I thought you were asking how to beat it! D'oh! But, yeah, I got the pics :)
It's probably a good thing if you don't understand.
Myu-Myu are some kind of forest folk. Like fey.
I know how to get the minigame - I mean, look at my avi, lol. But I can't beat the game, I don't know what I"m doing wrong. It always cuts me off. Thank you for saving the screenshots though! I'll tell you when I'm ready for them. It'll be a while, unfortunately, I have a few others to do first.
No problem. Just let me know :)
On that note, shall we see how this wraps up?
We return to Neody with offerings. In a highly specific order!
And after you give him the fire crystalite, you get this!
BBQ time with Neody!
Dat mood parameter! But what're you talking about? I've got too much adrenaline from all this to-
...Promptly collapse on Neody's shoulder. And snore loudly. That's always attractive.
The word you're looking for is D'AAAAAW.
Just don't move. You're all warm and injured.
(Why is he cooking the healing herbs with the fish?)
They must be the delicious kind of healing herbs!
It makes me think of that episode of Chopped where one of the basket ingredients was cough drops.
Nerys, not letting me reply directly again.
The herbs look sort fo like atomato and something like basil. It doesn't sound that offensive added to grilled fish. Then again, I don't like fish
Ugh, cooked fish can go to hell.
Besides, fish are so wonderful, I could never eat them.
I just had fish yesterday. Now I feel bad.
I only like fried fish.
And, well, salmon. Salmon can be made in any way, and I'll like it.
I had atfish, one of the few fish I eat, yesterday... xD Whoops, sorry DeeDee.
So I was wondering, what is that giant, blue, shiny, bauble-thing on the side of Protag-hime's head? I mean, it's probably just decorative, but I kind of really want it to be some sort of cybernetic implant.
To my knowledge, it's a hairclip with a large blue decorative charm and ribbons attached, that's all. If you look at some pictures of her, especially the chibi, her hair sort of changes direction at the bottom because it's pinned at an angle to fan around her face.
The characters in Zeiva games have some unusual fashion sense. Ividine seems to have a red bauble strape wrapped around partsof his body, but not exclusively stitched to his clothing. It goes all the way up to his head if I recall, like some kind of full body sleek boa. ..And it disappears on his conversation sprite, from his arm. Wat.
Hello all, creator, Mirage here. Awesome LP, I really enjoyed reading it :)
Just signed up here to answer a few questions that people here asked.
1) Other Age Game Guide is indeed 22 usd, but it's a book, of which the base price is 18 usd, and I only got 4 usd per book. Even I have to pay 18 usd to print a book. You can consider it half an art book as it actually consists a bunch of illustration and side comics. In any case, that was an old story. I made the guide as a book because people asked, and apparently it backfires because people want the guide free XD;;; So, don't feel bad about getting the guide free online (as long as people don't scan the content of the book, I'm fine). I'm well aware I made the game insanely hard ^^;;;
2) Mirage Fish is originally created by Nitarou. I asked her to design fishes for Genetic Glow II, and she drew Mirage Fish. It became a running gag of our series, that it supposedly dangerous and stupid. We are just a bunch of silly people, really XD;;;
3) I know lots of people seem to be bothered by the endings (finish date, go home). That is because this game is a parody of dating sim, of which nothing here should be taken seriously. We don't want to destroy the original series, thus everything ends the way it did.
4) Neody mini-game is the only game with a known bug, of which I donno how to fix (at least back in 2006). The bug triggers if you did not press the arrow button when giving the item to Neody. As long as you press the arrow after giving the items, the bug won't occur. Sorry for causing so much trouble. I'm a very bad programmer ^^;;;
5) The lag in Mr. Nobody mini-game could be caused by computer lacking memory to process flash. I suggest playing the game in Chrome to reduce lag.
Last but not least, when OA was originally perceived, it was meant to have option for you to pursue either boys or girls. We cut off the pursue girl option due to time constraint. When OA became more popular than we thought, we decided to make that option and the result is OASE. In case you are wondering why you are a prince chasing girls instead of princess chasing boys. I'm sorry if that isn't what people wanted. Hope that won't stop you from enjoying our other games. We are still learning, and hope we can make better games in the future ^^
No worries, no worries, I actually really like this game~ Can't finish some of the minigames for the life of me (I WILL manage yours SOME DAY, Mystery Guy!) but it's really fun to play because of the hilariousness. As soon as I saw Mirage, Nitarou and the "Luv Luv Nitarou Deluxe!" I was cracking up too much to take it seriously. Also, my headcannon is that they DO come back to visit. Often~ C:
Yeah, this game's really hilarious. I can't possibly look at a Dude with a serious face.
That's the topper to the worst night I've had in months, my fear realized. Of course the game's creator showed up and saw this! ;_; You can't do an LP on this site without cracking jokes, or people get bored. But then there's the risk someone involved will show up and you feel like a complete asshole for the things you've said! Hooray!
1. Just to point out, I did NOT see your book unauthorized or rip anything out of it, ever. My 'guide' is just word of mouth from other people who've played, internet comments, etc. I love your art, and that's the real reason I'd ever buy anything from you. A few years back I remember on deviantart you were advertising a year calander with beautiful full rendered art for each month that if I had a job.spare money at the time I would have bought in a heartbeat. I think the guide is just poorly received because the game is so hard many people have posted here they played once, and were intimidated or thought they were being trolled and gave up, it seems like the game is REQUIRED to have a guide. If you had sold it as an accompanying art book, I think a lot of people wouldn't have had such a sour taste about it. That's just my thoguhts though, not that you asked. I really do think your stuff is beautiful, and I keep coming back to play and remembering fondly.
2. Mirage Fish are awesome. I admit, these games you guys made are really fun partly because of the fourth-wall breaking self insertions. That's usually something people frown upon, but the Mirages are funny, and Nitarou's incredibly helpful in most games. I couldn't imagine the games without you guys in them. Just sayin'.
3. I always liked to think of it as an alternate reality. And everyone's disappointed by the ends because they really go tto like the boys! That's a credit to your writing enjoyable characters.
4. So that WAS a bug. Most of the rest of the game is pretty smoothly coded, so I figured I fucked up soemwhere. It's no sweat, I did something right the second time I tried, and everything ended up fine.
5. My computer's a piece of shit, so this is entirely possible.
I was really looking forward to OASE with the thought in mind that it would be a continuation of Other Age. That's why I was actually disappointed when it wasn't what I had worked up in my mind. The truth is, I got VERY invested in your games and loved them, and that's the real reason I'm ever critical of them.
From what I played of the OASE demo and Zelan's route, it seems like you addressed a lot fo the problems of the game being too hard and too short and really improved upon the original formula, even if I wasn't impressed by the girls. I know I'm behind on seeing a lot of your newer, more awesome stuff, and I don't doubt you'll continue to make really beautiful games and I sure hope so. I can't really afford to spend my minimum wage on computer games ATM so I probably won't purchase soon, but I do want to get around to playing the demos and seeing what directions your writing, art, and ideas have taken since I fell out of the loop. I also hope my linking to you guys may stir up a little traffic to people might actually love to buy your games and enjoy the crap out of them. I know on another thread a few people on here have played the two newer ones.
I really am wishing you guys all the success! I wouldn't have started this LP if your games didn't bring me a great ammount of joy and nostalgia.
