Very Retrouvaille – Fetch Quest, Comfy Town (/

very retro

This is a relative short game made with the RPGbaker 2003, which I played once years ago, during my harsh university years. It brought me lots of joy back then! For how simple the game is, I really had no complains whatsoever in general. Things haven’t changed a lot since then. By that I mean that the game is still as sweet and nice as I remember it.

I honestly think that the biggest plus of this game is the fact that the made “Me” as an actual NPC. Now how can I rate this title less than 1 million out of 10?

what is love

There are several cameos of characters from other spicy RPGshaker titles from back then, along with references to other popular games and media. Now in my book, that’s a good video game design, especially when you show off that you have a good taste via it.

But for real, it’s the beautiful artwork and color scheme that adds an unique and fresh look to the game, despite it’s unoriginal formula of casual fetch quest. The game is just the right length for one to not get bored and be left with a satisfying feeling. This is how you make a short and enjoyable game. This title is one good example. Maybe I am being too generous over the butt of my own head, but that’s how it is I guess…

The plot of the game is quite simple. The main character is not a Demon girl, but rather, a Ram! Everyone in town is part animal. Now get this, you are looking for the pet rabbit of the main character, so you have to ask the mayor, who is part rabbit too, to let you out of town! Tell me how many games you’ve played with such an interesting turn of events? None for sure!

The characters in the town are some of the nicest animal people ever. You get to solve a math problem and find missing photos for an album. The second one is optional. In case you are having problem doing so, just make sure to talk to everyone about everything. Take note that some characters might have different responses, depending on how far into the game you might be.

Very Retrouvaille DONE!

I am really glad that I decided to play this game yet again. Did you know? This is the first game of its developer! BING! We have a first timer quality madman yet again! I wish those would happen more often. I wish I would post more often.

I told you already that this game is 1 billion out of 10. Do I even have to repeat myself? Sheesh!

The Rob Blanc Trilogy – In space, I don’t know where to go…

space squid

I’ve always been fascinated with space in general, since probably the early age of Me being two or three years old. It was around that time for sure, as I remember that it was then, when I learned how to read properly. It all started with old encyclopedias, which I can still eye across my desk right now – All in fairly decent condition. If anything, my family was very caring towards books in general. Then, my love for space carried over to educational magazines and comic books. I was really having a blast in the 90s with all the reading material that I acquired, but truly, a huge step towards my total space- fantasy satisfaction, love-love, was the time when my brother rented the forth episode of the “Star Wars” saga. Afterwards, I fell hard for the franchise, what with watching the episodes when they aired on TV after midnight or with the various video games that I was later introduced to. Darth Vader seemed so awesome and cool to young Me back then…

Of course, other franchises made their way into my heart as well, like “Alien” and not “Star Trek”. I’ve never seen any movie, episode, Christmas special or whatever of it. “Star Trek” will probably remain an unexplored territory for Me, as honestly, I’m not really feeling it as a whole. At least not from the bits that I have seen or have been told about by my English teacher at university. Ugh…

I will always remember the time when they aired “Alien: Resurrection” and I was curious to watch it, despite my grandma’s warnings. Look, I loved space and the idea of existing aliens, but honestly, that was probably the scariest thing seven years old Me has watched, up until then!

I also played a lot of “Star Craft”, which seemed to me like the most complex game at the time. That’s how games usually feel like when you are new to them and lack proper experience.

Rob Blanc I DONE!

“The Rob Blanc Trilogy” is a composition of THREE, old adventure games, created by Ben “Yahtzee” Croshaw, that take on the whole space science- fantasy, exploration nation, aliens and heroes of all kind, vortex comedy night stand genre. The three games were made on an early version of the AGS engine, which was based on the MS-DOS system… I was not aware that something like that was a thing, until now, I’ve gotta say! Thanks to the power of MS-DOS emulation though, running these games on a modern operating system is quite the easy task. Thank god! Thank god for people with functional brains!

Each one of the three “Rob Blanc” games is fairly short in length and easy regarding difficulty. The plot follows a guy named Rob Blanc, who is picked by god- like beings [?] to become defender of the universe and fight evil that might pose a threat to it. The story escalates pretty quickly towards a climax or more like, anti- climax, leading towards the ultimate end where I ask myself: “Is it just me or the second and the third game feel rushed towards the later parts?” The first game and the early parts of the other two titles feel decently designed, but after that it’s just the obvious – You are in one small room, here’s this one item, use it on the one possible object in the room. Maybe that’s just me, maybe I’m being harsh for no real reason on these games! I enjoyed them for what they are though. They are not “Monkey Island”, but if anything, they feel like a good first pick for someone who might want to get into adventure games. “The Rob Blanc Trilogy” might not live up to modern standards, but honestly, even the MS- Pain graphics ain’t as bad as the author himself states it during the gameplay of the second title and that silly, main theme [?] tune is still suck in my head. How odd…

My honest score for the whole trilogy is 4.7 out of 10. It was decently amusing.

The White Chamber – Horror in Cyberpunk Space that you bite!

white chamber

The last entry to the spooky LR19 volume for this year, a game that I was planning to make a post about one month ago. “The White Chamber” is an adventure game made with the Wintermute engine. I was quite curious to check out the tool itself and honestly, I was pretty impressed by the things you can do with it. Along with that, I was also surprised by the decent- sized game library that it had spawned, with some titles looking really intriguing. This one in general, I enjoyed quite a lot! The game features psychological horror elements, along with some cyberpunk aesthetics and a typical anime style for the early years of the past decade.

The game starts with a girl waking up from inside a coffin, with her memories about the past and her identity not being intact. It’s a setting I’m quite familiar with when it comes to introductions in certain games and movies, but honestly, I don’t see myself getting tired of it. What makes it better than other overused scenarios is the fact that it’s quite flexible and it gives the opportunity for the plot to do whatever and go wherever, without too much of a restriction really. The overall plot of “The White Chamber” is pretty good in my opinion, but I think that one should try it and experience it for themselves. This is a no- spoiler kingdom website- blog!

The whole story takes place on a space station. Some space station that is though, I’ve gotta give credit to the person behind the graphic and art design, as everything looks GREAT! This was some pretty creepy space station and the ambient sounds added to the whole atmosphere and experience fittingly well! When it comes to the horror part, the game goes for the whole “Dark world – Light world” gimmick, with the addition of subtlety involved. During my first run, the whole time I was expecting jump- scares or a chase sequence, but the game is too cool for that crap! “The White Chamber” is a pretty good example of the type of horror that I enjoy!

The White Chamber 1.1 DONE!

Another thing worth mentioning is the neat style of animation. This game features animated cutscenes, most of which are pretty short, but still enjoyable to watch. The puzzles in the game are really good and I honestly got stuck for quite a while at a certain, early point in the game. I was not bothered with it though.When your game is pleasant to look at, people won’t mind spending time with it, game progress or not. I like how they made some items in the game serving no purpose whatsoever, but they didn’t get crazy with the concept. You know what else I enjoyed? The game has various endings, some of which have certain requirements. However, the game has a way of indirectly giving you a hint as to how you are doing on your playthrough. THAT is quite helpful as it lets you analyze the outcome of your actions for a specific area or an event, early on. I’ve never seen a game do this before, at least not in such an effective way.

Things that I didn’t really enjoy – The “best” ending that you can achieve and that one “inside the console” Easter Egg. I don’t know, they feel kind of outdated as an ideas. They are silly. Dumb. Some people might still like them. I could have liked them if I played this game ten years ago. Maybe!

If you want to play a short adventure game with good puzzles and horror that doesn’t stink, this is the title for you. The game is also FREE! FREE!!!! I give it 8 out of 10.

There was something something about a steam- remastered version, which looks pretty promising, but why would you change the art style? Why does remastering a game is even a thing? Why can’t do world and the people be the way I want them? Wh..

[Melly]Melly’s Futanari Island + Melly 2: Futanari Dreamland ~

melly

But did you actually know that Toffi-sama is making [pornographic] games for the internet?! You can go to this place : https://toffisama.wordpress.com/ , you can donate money, games are PROBABLY going to be made due to your generosity, after which you can give even more money for the heck of it! There goes my free advertising, so let me now introduce you to two of the works by this person.

“Melly’s Futanari Island” and “Melly 2: Futanari Dreamland” are games made in Fighter Maker, in addition to using the 3D Woyman Custom Maid service, which provides with and lets One make quality 3D models of pretty much anything, mostly tuna cans and watermelons with short temper. As the titles suggest, the games revolve around a futanari named Melly, who due to the miracle of science had to leave behind her life of being a normal girl.The first game introduces her transformation and her attempt at reverting it, while the second one portraits Melly accepting the new change. As a whole, the plot is just so-so, but it does a decent job at filling the gap and providing this game with a bit of a charm. You can easily go¬† along with it, since it doesn’t really take or add anything in general to the games.

Given the fact that both games have cheat mode/ endless mode , all of which can be accessed right away, without the need for passwords or beating the games, most players are bound to ignore the gameplay element as a whole and just enjoy the pornographic material.The reason for that is since the gameplay is not all that impressive as a whole! Melly stays still on the left part of the screen and enemies come towards her from the right. Enemies attack from three positions – Top, middle and bottom.Melly must repel enemies if she wants to avoid [WHY?] potential rape events.The controls for this game consist of three buttons, which let you perform attacks regarding the three positions. In the first game, due to your luck in obtaining a Belt of Giant Strength and Gauntlets of Ogre Strength, you can deal with enemies just by throwing small rocks at them. In the second game you use a crossbow, which is faster and looks less silly. Each game has it’s own map with levels, which consist of different enemies or bosses. Levels with enemies require you to destroy a certain number of them, while boss levels require number of direct hits to be inflicted on the boss itself. Enemies and bosses have their own and unique ways of attacking and dodging your weapons of mass destruction, so don’t expect them to always come straight at you! Enemies and bosses attack in random patterns, at random speed, which ends being quite the challenge for the player’s reflexes. [IF THE PLAYER ACTUALLY BOTHERS WITH TAKING THE CHALLENGE!]

The best thing about these two games is probably the decent variety of enemies and the various animated sexual scenes for each one of them. To be fair, I dig the 3D models. They look fairly nice, at least to me. The games cover a lot of fetishes – Some scenes show quite the creativity and are interesting, some are just outright plain and boring. Regarding that matter, I guess it all depends on the player’s personal taste.Difficulty wise, both games are quite forgiving, with the first one being pretty easy overall. The second one is a bit more tough, so if you are feeling being up for a challenge, try to clear it without using cheat mode or continues! Can’t say much about the variety in level themes. If anything , the first game feels a bit more colorful than the second one. In terms of soundtrack, these games either lack one or my machine can’t load and play [all] the files. I don’t know and I should not press this matter any further…

I caught my breath for a moment because of the seriousness in this post. With this, I can’t place a proper score whatsoever.

Video games are loneliness…

THESE GAMES ARE FREE TO DOWNLOAD!!!

LR19’s Retro Video Games Gauntlet/ Announcement for additional new volumes!

gauntlet

The “LR19’s Retro Video Games Gauntlet” is an all-time open event, with unlimited counter set for entries, unlike in other LR19 volumes. [RVGG] was inspired by a certain thread on 4Chan’s /vr/ board and was further modified by adding the LR19’s super-clear rule.

If I fail to complete the said game in time, I get to move on to another from the next console in line. An option to give up is also present, but I’ll try to avoid using it as much as I can, if not at all! Overall, I just wish to cover as many games from different retro consoles as possible. There are lots of consoles that didn’t get their names in the list and the reason for that is that I either have trouble emulating them or that I just don’t have any interest in the said console.[At least not at the moment…]
