  1. The way this game works is that the first person posts something like "If a cat eats cat food, then the cat will review the cat food online." Then, the next person has to take the "then" and turn it into an "if," like "If the cat reviews the cat food online, then the cat will be asked to be a cat food spokescat." Then the third poster would do "If the cat becomes a cat food spokescat, he'll want to develop his own brand of cat food" and so on and so forth. I'll start: If it snows, I'll build a snowman!
  2. I made a post in Animation Theater! :D

  3. I thought I'd start posting stuff here, since I've started animating stuff and am taking a college class to do so! Here is one of my first animations: I am now working on an AMV for Destiny Ninja 2, and hope to show you all soon! Please tell me what you think!

      Eh, I liked how Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality handled the Patronus better. Happy memories and positive thinking might be enough to repel Dementors, but I don't know about you but I rather find a way to destroy them. They should not exist, let alone have bubbling idiot wizards use them as frigging prison guards. But that's how wizards are in Harry Potter, bunch of incompetent idiots.

      @Kayzee This is meant to be a message of hope for people on the forums, though I get what you're saying.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yeah, but that kind of hope can only get you so far on it's own is what I am saying. We all face our own personal Dementors. Hope can repel them, but that makes that hope into a fuel that is slowly used up. But... Maybe, just maybe... By understanding what they really are and defying them, refusing to accept their existence, by fighting them with all your heart and mind, you can find a way to destroy them. That's what I believe.

  5. I have no idea where you got the idea that nuclear strikes will happen. They won't. Please look at the link I sent you.
  6. Some of the faucets at my college look like elephant heads when viewed from above. I find it kind of cute.

      I've seen hippopotamus faces before in sinks, but it requires a lot of imagination and staring, lol

      Perhaps there is a secret society of elephant worshipers in your college. Maybe if you turn the knobs in just the right way on one of them, a secret passage will open :lol:

    Haven't posted for a loooong time. Rest assured I am still working on this game. What do you guys think of the OST so far? I made most of the tracks in MuseScore and a few in ProTools (which was only available to me during a certain college class). I would love general feedback as well as thoughts on specific tracks. =)

    Catty Lands

    Saeryen Kalador Games presents... Katrina, now captain of her family ship. Maia, still waiting for her parents to come home. Kali, wrapped up in her luxurious life... Catty Lands is an upcoming fantasy adventure game made with RPG Maker VX Ace. It takes place in a world very unlike our own; a flat world surrounded by impenetrable fog. Here, the out of the ordinary is merely the everyday. This world is the Catty Lands. Currently, this game is in the phase of story production. A cast of characters (subject to growth) has been created, as well as many locations. It will likely take one to three years for total completion, particularly as I am the sole developer. This is planned to be a commercial release.

  9. I personally hate the Times New Roman font. I was writing copyright lines at the bottom of a song I'm making in Musescore and it looked so icky because it was Times Roman and size 8. I changed it to Sylfaen, much better font IMO.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Could be worse. ;)

    2. PhoenixSoul

      I personally like the simpler fonts like Sydnie and VCR OSD Mono.

       

      I also like Segoe Print and Segoe Script; in my two latest YouTube uploads I used both of those fonts.

       

      I think, personally, that Times New Roman belongs on a physical newspaper and nowhere else, dammit.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Honesty I have been half thinking of switching to junicode just so I can use stuff like runic or maybe ogham. Or at least use them without switching fonts. Honestly not sure it will work, but it would be neat.

  10. Thinking about good childhood memories just now. My old church had an awesome playground and the prettiest pine trees, and a hall I named "Kitten Thirteen," where I liked to play songs on the organ. When Mom had choir practice I would come along and search the church for Barbie Explorer, and also play songs.

     

    Thinking about this now because it's Easter and I remember all those fun egg hunts and lady who dressed up as the Easter Bunny and she became one of my favorite people, I loved seeing her every year.

      Can't say I have particularly good memories of any churches. They always made me feel kind of uncomfortable and out of place. But I am a heathen after all, so that's probobly to be expected. Even so, I have to admit they are pretty buildings most of the time, if a bit creepy.

      @Kayzee My church was Unitarian Universalist so it was more about caring for each other than one particular religion. We learned about different religions too which was cool.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, that does sound pretty neato type of place to go, though really it's as much about the public/organized/formalized nature of it then the religion involved. Unitarian Universalist sounds pretty open and relaxed, but I kinda think of religion to be more private and intimate then that. It's a bit like how some people might see a bunch of people going to a nudist club every sunday maybe? I donno. I obviously don't have a problem talking about religion and being public about what I believe. I just feel kind of uncomfortable with the idea of going to a special building for it and having people preach at me. But I guess not all churches are like that anyway. Honestly I would probobly feel the same kind of discomfort at an anime convention or something. Not that there is that much difference. :P

  11. So I just finished watching my first anime (Akatsuki no Yona, because my favorite singer did one of the songs) and it was really good! Plus it was my kind of show, really reminiscent of Avatar the Last Airbender (also a fave of mine).

     

    I'm not going to watch another right away (I want to work on creative projects) but I'm thinking I'd probably love Cardcaptor Sakura. I'd also like to watch Princess Tutu but I can't find a free and legal way to do so. )=

      First anime huh? You should really get in to it. There's a lot of good series out there. If you're watching CardCaptor Sakura next, brace yourself & make time for it because the 'unbutchered' version of it is a whopping 70 episodes + 2 movies (probably take a whole weekend if you marathon episodes).

    3. Saeryen

      Saeryen

      @Kayzee I think PMMM is bit too dark and gritty for me.

      @Animebryan Lol I don't marathon. I need to do more variety of stuff during the day. And I think it'd be okay, AkaYona ended too quick and now I have to read the manga.

      Kayzee

      @Saeryen Where did you hear that? Come now, do you think a show with a cute animal mascot like this would be dark and gritty?

    Hello there!
  13. Saeryen

    I can't find something

    Thanks Riki!
  14. There used to be huge resource lists called "Granny's Lists" here. Where did they go?
  15. Thanks for the kind words, guys. I've decided not to interact with this topic anymore, it's not making me feel very good.
  16. No song can be complete without every note, harmony and inflection. This world being a song, everyone in it is a vital part of the song and no one's existence is pointless, because without that one person, the entire song is so much less special.

     

    TL;DR You are important and don't let anyone or anything tell you otherwise.

      (Next time, I'll not say anything when I'm afflicted by insomnia drain...)

      Spoiler

       

      But then, some parts of the song are DTMF tones and sirens going off too...

       

      lol

       

      I just binge-watched a single YouTuber's entire upload gallery of EAS Mock up videos; some were really intense (and yep @Kayzee one of them was about the Yellowstone eruption); but any of the ones about nuclear disaster or that led up to such were in the most dramatic category.

       

      Of course, the most ridiculous fall on the two tsunamis, one affecting the entire East Coast, and the ones affecting LA and San Francisco; the former was over four thousand miles wide and ten thousand feet tall, the latter two waves were less ridiculous in terms of height but still higher than any tsunami ever recorded at 5,280 feet high.

       

      There was one involving mutated bees, one with killer clowns, one involving Snapchat, and another involving a militia invading Detroit. There was also tainted turkeys for Thanksgiving, and Krampus stealing toys, robbing banks and depositing bombs under the Christmas trees, as well as lycanthropes assaulting trick - o - treaters.

       

      A fire in DC involving hazardous chemicals, and an odd electronic signal that made people collapse, act violently, and then take control of missile silos that the Pentagon was in control of, to launch warheads onto various US cities.

       

      I'm really getting into this rhythm and prose, huh?

       

      Terrorists invaded and attacked the Super Bowl venue, before blowing it and the entirety of Minneapolis up with a nuclear bomb, and ISIS destroyed four iconic attractions before setting sights on One World Trade Center.

       

      In one of the two direct nuclear strikes, President Trump gets killed, and a total of sixty warheads strike the US between the two videos, all launched by North Korea.

       

      Obviously, all these videos were just mock ups of how the Emergency Alert System would interrupt with alerts; there's no action shown (but there are sirens in the background of some of the videos to give the impression that the warnings are sounding off in the affected area/s...

       

      38 in total, and good grief, I need sleep. lolz

       

      Sorry about that, @Saeryen...

      @PhoenixSoul I don't know why you posted that on a post where I was trying to be kind to members of the community.

      Yeah, it was pretty uncool to hijack the update. That really should have been sent in a pm PS.

  17. Okay, I'm just going to say it: I feel like everyone here is talking about me personally. I've been using the RTP graphics and a lot of scripts because hey, my big strength is storytelling and design. And with the graphics I'm doing a lot of color changes and I believe unusual combos that make the world feel more ethereal. This game is really important to me, guys. These characters and this world are important to me. It's taken me a lot of effort to even get motivated to work sometimes, given that I've had some personal stuff get in the way. I want to change the world for the better and I believe to do that I was meant to weave stories and songs that convey my message of love, happiness and faith in people, and how I believe we can make a better world. Telling me that something I'm pouring my voice and soul into is rubbish based on some superficial stuff is heartbreaking. That's why I said to please consider the effect this has on actual people.
  18. I think what @Semolous is talking about isn't just criticism, but saying something is bad without even examining it properly. Reading a description and screenshots and assuming the game is terrible without playing it is, I believe, pretty close-minded. Unless they're clearly promoting racism or something similar it's worth giving it a go. An analogy I can think of is that someone tells you their story idea (and it's not at all offensive) and you just say "it won't be very good" before the thing is even written, which, for some people, causes them to give up on something that could have been amazing.
  19. Okay, I honestly feel pretty insulted. This isn't justified. If the game is not offensive, GIVE IT A CHANCE! Also, consider that there are probably people under 18 years old using this engine to make their first games. Do you think children/teenagers are going to try harder if they're told that their stuff sucks just because of the engine they use? Unless the person has a lot of self-esteem and determination, they're not. GIVE NEW DEVS A CHANCE. Especially give a chance to teen devs who may give up on what could be their dream entirely because all they got from the extremely brave act of putting their work out there was being maliciously shot down. You want a better world? Then be the embodiment of that world. Don't do something that could create a broken soul. Please.
  20. Today, Ariacata begins Her migration to the north. Her sister Maiacata migrates to the south.

     

    (Ariacata is the summertide i.e. spring/summer, and Maiacata is the wintertide, fall/winter.)

    Thanks, but this isn't my character. He's from the game Destiny Ninja 2.

    So I started drawing some stuff and I thought I'd upload sketches I've made. I would love, love, LOVE feedback on anything and everything! Today I'll share the sketch of Shiroya from Destiny Ninja 2 I've uploaded to the gallery! I still can't draw people very "3D" looking, but I still think he's quite adorable. And he loves you! What do you think of him?

    Helloooo? The reason I posted this was to talk about it. Please talk to me? I already feel like I'm being talked to less around here (which I'm not blaming anyone for, I just feel lonely).
