Progress!

Just made a couple of important alterations to Phenomenon 32, which took down the overall size of the game (in MB) by something like 40%, while simultaneously giving me some cool new options. Yay!

I’m also working on adding more features that wouldn’t have been in the contest version. I want this game to be detailed and fun. As usual with my games, it won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but to those with the right mindset it should be a lot of fun. (And yes, it still has a real story.)

So – new game soon. For now, have a nice Suspiciously Pagan Holiday.

    Another question:

    What do you mean with the pagan holiday?

    Oh, also, today i remembered a passage from the great machine, game that i played, a year or so ago.

    It may be different from the real text, i’ve just remembered it

    There is a man sitting there, outside the camp, hes making a prayer, suddenly, as you get near, he gets up, and with a wail, he lunges at you, you move aside, the man falls and sinks on the mud till you can´t see him.

    This has some implicit meaning, right?

  3. What do you mean with the pagan holiday?

    Easter, of course. There’s nothing particularly Christian about bunny rabbits and painted eggs. Christianity intentionally put all of its major holidays on top of ancient pagan holidays; it didn’t always work out as cleanly as they had probably hoped. Thus, people to this day worship fertility symbols in the beginning of spring.

    I don’t put in stuff by accident, generally speaking. (Though sometimes meaning arises unintentionally, which is wonderful.) But as to interpretation… that’s entirely up to you.
