      So does this mean a particular medisona image is on the way? Remember you swore to the art god to deliver, and you don't want to piss off the art god. The least they could do is curse you with artist's block. But if they get really annoyed... well you know the stereotype of the mad tortured artist exist for a reason. Imagine your muse filling your head 24/7 with only ideas that are either boring, disgusting, way way beyond your skill level, or things you think you can do but when you try you are never happy with them. :P

      Must've already ticked off the art god. But I combat it by constantly expanding my artist comfort zone and improving.

       

      And yes, Frau Doktor is on the way.

  3. Meanwhile, back at the Red Army base, Red Leader shot at a target a few times at the shooting range. “What do you want me to tell you?” his A.I assistant, Cindy, retorted, “Your aim is perfect.” “I’m bored,” he sighed, “I just want something to do!” “You could go help retrieve your box,” she suggested, “That could be fun.” He reloaded several of the guns and sighed. “You’re right. Let’s go to Bosnia and hopefully not get shot out of the sky!” He ran out to the other plane, punched in the coordinates and set it to autopilot. He reclined the seat and kicked his feet up on the control panel with a yawn. “Wake me up when we get there or if I need to take control, Cindy,” he said, closing his eyes. When Cindy finally did wake him up, it was because they were headed directly towards a mountain. Tord yelped and quickly took control of the plane so he could avoid the mountain, looking down in time to see the Blue Army base… And a zombie tyrannosaurus rex. He grinned in anticipation as he landed near it. He watched it for a few minutes as it attacked the outside of the base. “So that’s where all of those zombie dinosaurs from that island went…” he mumbled to himself as he began sneaking towards it. Soon enough, he was on it and riding it inside the building and into the chamber with the other zombie tyrannosaurus rex. He felt like James Bond. Suave, intelligent, breaking all the typical codes of conduct, storming enemy lines on a sweet ride… “HEY!” he yelled, “OVER HERE, BIG ROTTING UGLY!” The other dinosaur whipped around to look at him, its massive tail throwing Patryck against the far wall. Tord smirked. “YOU!” Blue Leader yelled, pointing at him from behind the glass. “You bet!” he replied, “Don’t tell me you seriously didn’t think I wouldn’t show up! And in the flesh, which is more than can be said for you and your robot selves!” She scowled and ran off. Tord turned back to the problem in front of him – that is to say, the zombie T-Rex that he wasn’t riding – with a smirk across his face. “Why don’t you pick on someone your own size?” he said, charging his own massive dinosaur at it. Of course, zombies don’t mess with other zombies. It was a flaw that became more evident after he realized that the dinosaur he was on was actually going for his men. He quickly slid down its back and ran to the now wide open giant door. “Guys!” he called, “This way!” And once he was sure his men were following, he ran off. “Where’s the plane?” he asked. “It’s just down there!” Yuu said, pointing at the landing strip ahead of them. Patryck looked back. “I didn’t know this before,” he began, “But as it turns out, Tyrannosaurs can really haul a-” He was cut off by gunfire from ahead. “Oh come ON!” Yanov cried, sliding under the hail of bullets and firing back at the previously hidden guards with his own two pistols, “Can’t you give us a break?!” Paul pulled out some throwing knives and threw them at the opposing forces as he ran for the plane while Patryck and Yuu ran in different directions to cause a distraction. Tord stopped midstep and just grinned at a thought that occurred to him, that clearly hadn’t occurred to anyone in the Blue Army. There were more zombie dinosaurs. Zombies are never sufficiently contained either. He turned back around and calmly walked between the legs of the enormous undead T-Rexes and followed the trail of blaring red hazard lights down to the rest of the zombies. With a grin, he slammed his hand on the button to let them all out. Then, much like the Tyrannosaurs, he hauled a- When Paul got to the cockpit, he glared ahead at Blue Leader, who was calmly sitting on the control panel with a devious smirk. Yanov quickly joined him. “Can we just call it a day?” Paul asked, “This is encroaching on my smoke break.” Yanov stared at him. “THAT’S what you’re worried about?!” he exclaimed. “So says the guy who took a flamethrower to some guards over the fate of his portable gaming console,” Paul replied dryly. Blue Leader rolled her eyes. “Here you two are arguing when I’m the one holding all the cards,” she said, “And by “cards,” I mean-” “ZOMBIE DINOSAUR STAMPEDE!” Tord laughed from outside the plane, “GET THE PLANE GOING GUYS! I DON’T WANT US TO DIE HERE!” Yuu and Patryck quickly ran into the cockpit. “Four against one,” Yuu said, “I think I like our odds.” “You four just lost against me less than an hour ago,” Blue Leader said. “You had guards!” Patryck said. “And you can make it five!” Tord grinned, carrying in the gunblade, “Now you can either get out of here and deal with the problem in your base, or I can figure out how to use this thing.” “My guards here are expendable,” she said, “I don’t care about them. I don’t care about this base. I don’t even care about Bosnia. I’d rather see you go down.” “I guess it’s time for an epic gunblade fight!” Tord grinned, “Cindy! Play my boss fight theme for me!” On cue, a sick beat and thumping rhythm took over the speakers as the weapon charged up a blast. Paul, Patryck, Yuu and Yanov watched as the robotic body for Blue Leader exploded into smithereens from one blast of the gunblade. “Really?” Tord said, half disappointed and half intrigued, “I was hoping for more of a fight. But I really do appreciate decent firepower.” Patryck took off, shooting the plane into the sky. Once they were safe, he punched the coordinates for the Red Army base and sighed, flopping into one of the seats and promptly sliding out of it. “So what’s in the box anyway?” Yanov asked curiously. “Oh, you know…” Tord said. Unfortunately, Cindy turned his epic boss theme up too loud, effectively covering up his explanation of what was in the box. Everyone was more or less annoyed about that, but they gave in, exhausted from everything that just happened. “I’m glad all of that is over,” Patryck groaned. “Me too,” Yuu agreed. When the five returned to the base, they made a group effort to carry the precious cargo to Tord’s quarters. Tord pried the lid off and they all peered inside. A grin spread across Tord’s face. “At last!” he said reaching in, “It’s finally here!” “That’s what we went through all of that for?” Paul grumbled. “I think it was worth it!” Yanov grinned, “It’s amazing!” “Definitely,” Yuu replied. Patryck just laid on the floor, asleep at this point. “Let’s go try it out!” Tord said. “Let’s not,” Paul replied, “It’s been a long day.” “Whatever, Paul!” Yanov said, opening the door, “I’m off to the training area with Tord!” “Me too!” Yuu agreed.

    akshbsoidfbiebifbibsoiufebjslkjes omg That's hilarious. Considering I'm a huge polyshipper, I vote go for it. In reality, it was just a new gun to try out, but I left it ambiguous to get people's minds going in a funny way and I guess it worked perfectly. Rereading that final scene with the Bad Dragon thing buzzing around my head just made it more hilarious honestly. "When the five returned to the base, they made a group effort to carry the precious cargo to Tord’s quarters." I swear- XD

      @PhoenixSoul, if you were really a narcissist I would think that you would have stopped being my friend by now given some of the critical things I have said to you. As I understand it (which may be wrong), narcissism is basically when people elevate themselves over everyone else and try and put themselves in a bubble so they don't have to accept their own flaws. There are probobly different levels to that, but true narcissists I think just cannot abide anything that challenges them. Narcissists throw fits and lash out the more you challenge that bubble, they become more antagonistic the more you push them on anything.

       

      Now a lot of non-Narcissists might react that way too, especially if they have been hurt by something before I think. I am not saying my behavior is justified or anything. But regardless, it seems pretty clear to me that you don't do that. When i push you a bit I don't get yelled at and called names. You will argue with me sure, but in the end you usually see my point even if you don't agree. I doubt a true narcissist would ever let me get as close as I have. I mean, I do tend to be careful about choosing my words and I am probobly one of the few people willing to engage with you on some topics on a level that doesn't automatically dismiss some things that are important to you, but some other people *cough*thatonenpc*cough* have for sure not been as accepting. Not saying they were narcissistic though, I really don't like to assume that about anyone and I do kinda bate people sometimes.

       

      Anyway I suspect that it's actually really easy for people to fall into a kind of narcissistic pattern of thinking without really meaning to. I know I can get close sometimes! In the end though I always try to remember that I am mostly just playing a big game with the world, and games are meant to be fun, even when losing! I kind of want to blame the Curse of Greyface for all of this honestly. Narcissists seem like the ultimate sore losers who just can't enjoy the game unless they are winning.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah. I think narcissism via proxy ignorance is definitely a problem, but it's also not the fault of the individual, not necessarily anyway.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Like I have said before though, who's at fault doesn't really matter. What matters is: If is a problem that needs to be solved, people can be part of that problem or they can be part of the solution. Or of course be completely uninvolved, but sometimes being uninvolved is part of the problem...

      I can imagine a guy actually saying this to the lady in question, then the lady stopping and looking at him with an eye roll and saying: "Oh yes, quite right. I suppose I got too caught up in the foreplay. Do forgive me, I will shut up and just get to the killing you part then. Bah, you guys are all the same. It's always 'So when does the killing start?' or 'Just hurry up and stab me already!' or something like that. Can't a girl take the time for a nice romantic taunting of her victim?"

      Depending on my mood, gamedev music can differ between a playlist I have in Media Monkey, or one of the songs in my game project.

      I find songs that have no lyrics (or just backing lyrics) tend to boost my creative energy in a way that allows me to channel it.

      Actually, I've not tested that particular formula. I think the syntax is valid as far as making sure that if the variables in question are at zero, to multiply by one instead, but I don't exactly have a reason to test it since it's just me being silly. lololololol

      If I were to actually make a damage formula with a variable-based multiplier, I'd actually have to go with something more reliable, and of course, I'd also have to make sure the variable didn't endlessly raise itself.

    Dead Evolution

    Hello everyone! I'm Absinthe Ingram and I am officially announcing my venture into survival horror - Dead Evolution. WHAT IS DEAD EVOLUTION? Dead Evolution is a survival horror RPG game. You play as Timothy Wong, a man looking to help make a cure for the zombie virus. Well, technically, there already was a cure released via an aerosol agent. It just made the zombies mutate. Some gained sentience, wandering the wasteland fully aware and yet unable to speak or remember their pasts; other gained new abilities, like screaming or running. As Timothy, you're searching for one of the sentient zombies to bring back to your home base... But there are complications, such as your communication device breaking, nearly running out of ammo, being unable to track the zombie right away, etc. that prevent this from being too easy. But the game doesn't end once you get back to the base - all of that was just the first half of the game. The second half involves more zombie killing, saving your child and a BFG. There are companions, but they can't help in combat outside of certain scripted circumstances. Think 7 Days To Die meets Days Gone meets Resident Evil. WHO ARE THE MAIN CHARACTERS? The guy you'll see the most of is Timothy Wong, a former high school science teacher-turned-combat scientist. He's good natured and kind, always looking out for others. In other words, the perfect candidate for the cure effort. He's mastered using guns and knives against the zombies. Outside of Timothy, there's not really another "major character". For NPCs though, there are several. There's Brandi Mitchell, a sweet lady with a heart of gold and a steel-cored baseball bat. There's Becky Nelson, who thinks backstabbing is super fun - literally and figuratively - along with pretending to be a damsel in distress. There's Mx Knight, a trader of sorts who will give you what you need at a small price - and if you chip in one extra sandwich or something, you'll get extra ammo absolutely free*! There's also the reinforcements team you can call in - Destiny and Arnold - who are useful, but definitely don't care about the cause. Destiny is there to drive like a maniac and Arnold just wants to kill things. There are survivor settlements in some locations, but aside from trading and resting, there isn't much you can do. There's also everyone down in the base, most notably Mr Waldon, Timothy's boss, and Timothy's 13-year-old child, but they don't come into play until the second half. WHAT ELSE DO YOU WANT TO TELL US? The game is a throwback to survival horror. Puzzles, limited ammo and health items, save points, an emphasis on fear, etc. The game also combines survival horror with survival. Sure, ammo is limited, but you can also make it. Sure, health is limited, but you can also make it. I want the survival game part to add a faint glimmer of hope to the desolate situation. Also, there's a small thing at the beginning where you can customize Timothy a little to alter a few stats and unlock certain things earlier than normal (Was he a P.I after he was a teacher? Was he good at gym in high school? Did he live in a slum, a small town, a town, a city, or a big city?), as well as tune him a little more to your liking (What is his child's name and gender? What gender was his spouse?) Some things will always remain the same - he had a loving family, became a teacher, took another career to help even more people, married a wonderful person and adopted an amazing child - then, his job was rendered obsolete by the apocalypse. He joined the cure effort to continue to help. His spouse was ripped to shreds by zombies. Now he's making sure this cure gets made so hopefully his child gets a happy life. I might also do early access. WHAT ELSE WOULD YOU LIKE TO KNOW? Let me know in the comments! I'll answer anything! *Ignore the fact that you have to donate a sandwich to get the free ammo.

    Neat! :D

    Dead Evolution

    I'm hoping it works out well. ^w^ 7 Days To Die is a semi-open world multiplayer survival game taking place in a zombie apocalypse. You spend most of it looting, crafting, shooting zombies, running from zombies, hiding from zombies, (begging the RNG gods to give you magnum ammo) and making a cool base once you've explored the entire map. Days Gone is similar, but far more story driven. You complete quests and travel around the map, unlocking new parts, trading, buying, upgrading your motorbike and killing/fleeing zombies, evil humans and zombie-worshiping evil humans.
