Is it just me, or is there something wrong with his finger?
THANK YOU. I always squirm when people talk about that book/movie because I hate it and no one ever knows why. Also, didn't Iwasaki get threats after her name was revealed? I could be wrong about that, but either way, when you tell someone you'll acknowledge them anonymously, do it anonymously. Damn. Is it so hard?
I didn't know about what Arthur Golden did - the . I kinda want my money back, even if I like the book.
I'm afraid you'll have to go around and pick up flowers until he decides to kidnap you.
(An Otome game based on Greek myths will be a glorious mess, you can only be a mistress and all the Gods are fucked up XD
It would be fun to play as a Goddess and chose a human. Or just mess with humans. You would be the one cursing people just because they believe to be better than you! )
Master of Olympus: Zeus offers one hell of a preview XD I once had half of Thebes (or possibly a colony of Thebes) trashed because Hephasteus unleashed Talos on me. Because, see, earlier I built a temple to Ares because he was pissed off I killed his pet hydra, and while that temple appeased Ares (Athena told me it was because he liked playing hide and seek or as he called it 'ambush practice' in the large halls there), it meant I was his favoured city by the time Hephasteus realized his wife Aphrodite was cheating on him... with Ares.
And the Gods are basically just blessing/cursing machines in that game. Imagine the soap opera, were they the driving plot mechanism.
I am now massively sad Zeus won't run on my Vista. I miss that game.
And now I'm seeing Ares under a different light.
That game seems wonderful, the idea of letting the Gods act like...Gods is really a good one.
There isn't a patch to let it work, or something like that? My laptop allows me to play old games - it's a Seven - just by installing it, setting the compatibility and running the game as administrator.
Yeah, it's amazingly fun. And very educational. I think I half passed Ancient Studies thanks to that game. Little details like abducted brides, what monsters were defeated by which hero - an entire quest chain is dedicated to the Labours of Hercules and another to the Illiad.
In case people are bummed, though, the game doesn't have any dating moustachioed creeps, so it's not a complete loss XD
Sadly, I tried the Compatibillity mode already. It's really grinding my gears, too, because it was my favourite game bar none, and we only have one XP pc remaining and that's a tiny, tiny laptop.
Davian, upgrade to Seven if you ever get the chance. Vista sucks. Speaking from experience. Vista's just a mess.
She did! Death threats even, since geisha aren't supposed to talk about their customers. Yeah, Arthur Golden's kind of a creep. I have no interest whatsoever in reading any future books of his.
Heck, 8's out now.
Now I want to make the otome game based on Greek mythology!
Screw it, I'm definitely doing it!
Hades- Smexy/Sempai/Dark Prince
Poseidon- Kohai (because he skipped class too often to surf)
Dionysus- Secret character you only get from partying ❤
Might I suggest other characters?
Hera - The libby. the rival for Zeus.
Artemis - the athletic female friend.
Athena - the smart female friend.
Demeter- Head of gardening club.
If Apollo is the sensei, would that make Artemis your gym teacher, since they're twins? Either way, Artemis has to love animals (or dogs, at least), hate men, have a brother complex, and bring down divine retribution on anyone who tries to put a move on her. Artemis is the best, okay?
All of these are wonderful additions!
Maybe Protag-chan should be a worker in Artemis's temple. She loses her parents or something and runs to the temple, sad and alone, and cries to the statue of Artemis. Then Artemis herself appears before her and, in thanks for working so hard in her temple, gives her ambrosia and brings her to Mt. Olympus to be one of her handmaidens as well as her friend.
It can either be literal or based off of the myths (aka in a high school)
You may want to avoid the whole Persephone thing unles you want Hades to be yandere, but what about Aphrodite?
Aphrodite as the stylish friend or a "big sister" who gives life advice maybe?
or a girlxgirl route?
Aphrodite-as-Karen is fully acceptable to me.
Now I must!
You know what, routes and endings for every character!
So we're technically Zeus? And we can romance him?
Sign me up. I signed myself up the minute someone suggested turning this into a dating sim.
Zeus can and will romance Zeus!
ZEUS ROMANCES ALL
There needs to be at least a yandere Hades option then, maybe have a less kidnap-y option and then also the stalker/kidnap-y option if you happen to be in the flower arranging club and decide to pick flowers in the wrong place (ie near where he parks his super sexy sportscar). You only get saved if you got your friendship or love stat with Demeter high enough though otherwise you're stuck with yandere!Hades.
Where do I forward my paycheck? 'Cause seriously this is in the tippy top of things I've always wanted. Especially if it can be just as sordid and petty as the myths make it. It'd also rock if Hestia could be the player character's bff. She is like the ONE sane divinity in the whole pantheon so she'd make the best bff and maybe she's my totes favorite.
As soon as I finish my website for class, I'll get right on this! The art will take me a little while though, I'm not bad at drawing but I'm slow.
Should Zeus be an exchange student to reflect the fact he was originally the Thrackian God of Thunder and was integrated in the Parthenon via being related/seducing/married to most of them when the culture gained dominance in Greece?
I can wait I've got tons of sewing and renpy figuring out to keep me busy. Just the fact that this is being talked about maybe possibly someday before I die being made is thoroughly exciting. The only thing that tops my list more than this is an otome involving racing and lolita dresses and I'm working on filling that oddly specific niche as we speak. :D
OMG I'mma maybe be able to romance Heph and Hades one day. Yeeeeeees.
A game where you can romance Hades (yandere or not)? Sign me up. :D
This sounds wonderful.
MAKE A YURI ROUTE FOR ARTEMIS EVERYONE.
IchigoNeko, there's a book (the first three chapters of the audio book are free!) where Hades is a woman and I swear if Persephone wasn't already crushing on her I would be romancing Hades. The fourth wall be damned. You might be interested in it.
On Topic: I've got nothing besides complaints about how finicky TMGS is for everything ever. I tried playing a little today and I remembered why I'm just reading LPs instead.
Oooh, this sounds wonderful! Thanks!
As a fair warning, the author made Zeus very much like the Zeus of the actual myths so there's rape.
I'll go back to being quiet now, I promise.
Thanks for the warning. Listening now~
uh...on topic, on topic...
...you know I was wondering if you guys were exaggerating about Amenohashi's creepiness but you really aren't...
I agree with Randissimo about Vista - if you tried with the "run as administrator" option then there's nothing to do, that was the ultimate trick.
^THIS. Like, Hera is always Zeus wife/girlfriend and Hades is like a Stalker With A Crush for someone else, and Ares and Afrodite are still sleeping together, Dionysos has a nice girlfriend with an not-great ex...so much stuff to work on!
LET ME ROMANCE ATHENA. LET ME.
(Artemis as well. )
And it only gets worse and worse as you going on. It's really breaking my heart having to focus on Amanohashi and ignoring every other guy, they are all so much better. I even feel bad for protag-chan. I'll get his ending and then reload and get Fuji's one.
Mihara, save me. ;_;
Oooh, yes. Athena could be, what, the sporty girl who's also the valedictorian or something? xD
Or president of the student council. She was a strategist, right?
I was thinking the same when I read Angie's thread back on Qt3 and she started freaking out royally when his intro scene fired. Five screenshots later, I was right there with her, freaking out. Sometimes I wonder what the hell the writers were thinking. He does something good, and then he immediately says or does something extremely skeezy to screw it up again. And that CAR scene...
Don't remind me of the car scene. I was going to analyse that but NOPE FREAK OUT.
I offer my outmost contrafibularities. I am dispectic, frasmotic, and even... erm... something... to have caused you such pericombulations.
I need to watch Blackadder again.
As someone who has actually gotten Amanohashi's ending (I am a master of morbid curiosity), I can say that his route's gonna continue walking that thin, thin line between "kind of sweet" and "creepy".
I'll finish his route today and go to watch The Hobbit tomorrow as consolation.
You can write a ten page essay about all the things going wrong with that route. Or more.
I probably will.
Time to punish
Randissimo for not updating this LP! MWAHAHAHAHAHA
Sedrine, I love you.
Also, I am going to update this soon because I have quite a backlog of screenshots to go through, so fret not!
And stop making me laugh so hard I can't breathe.
