HAHA, Buy N' Large-esque?
This might hurt, it's not safe / But I know that I've gotta make a change / I don't care if I break,
At least I'll be feeling something

Naw. You know how the ads of that movie on TV shows it like a carefree kid's show, and it's just him chasing a ball around and making fart jokes or whatnot, but when you watch the movie it's actually not? I'm mainly referring to that in the aspect that it gives the audience a different expectation when going into the show than what it actually is; whether that's good or not is arguable and depends a lot on the scenarios, but I think it's a good call in this case. [But don't leak! Or it won't work when I release it on forums. :| ]

...If you think you know what you're doing. Sounds fun, but it could be risky. (Btw, that wasn't at all the impression I got from the WALL-E comercials I saw. They put some legit stuff out there, too.)

O_O Hey is west US slang? I didn't know this x_x I thought everyone said it, XD But I also say eh all the time, and I'm not canadian >_>
[/quote]
I too use the word quite commonly without thinking it as slang.  That is of course if you mean the word itself in every instance being slang, abigailian, but if you only mean ending sentences in 'hey', then I don't believe I've heard of that.  Wait, are you talking the west coast of the U.S., or Canada?  Now I'm seriously confused. x_x  If it was the latter, disregard this, as I thought you were talking about the United States.

I'm mainly referring to that in the aspect that it gives the audience a different expectation when going into the show than what it actually is;
i.e. blatantly cheating your customers of what they expected. lol

  So yeah, I hope to see this once it's finished.  Once I actually have something to really critique, I'll post something up here.
I recently discovered that I was capable of sending coins to myself, and exploiting this is surprisingly entertaining.

Oh my goodness! I didn't even think of that. Yeah, I meant West Coast Canada. And no, I don't think of it as slang, just regional/dialectal. And there is a difference, btw. Slang/formal/colloquial has to do with the context of a particular dialogue, while regional/dialectal differences have to do with social class and geographic location.

I disagree. When it's done strategically, it can potentially (if successful) achieve an effect that adds to the theme of the story.

Again you are free to use it if you want, or just post it within the "fan section" once the game is complete. x_x

Can't wait to play, as always. ;p

Posted on the thread; thanks again. c: And again, this isn't a "game", but just a short story in the form of a continuous cut-scene.

Please move, RM[XP/VX] and Game Design:vikonsmile:

No, just kidding. This really looks great because I ever wanted to play a game that's like a short movie with no special story, but rather with a primary focus on one special event and a character (or more than one character). A nice, little story that's what I want. Maybe some philosophical elements or just something to smile.
I eagerly await this 'project'.

I've done some good amount of work on it today, and it's turning out better than expected. Cut-scene wise, this is probably better/more delicately handled than Quintessence, as it is all it is, heheh.
[But can't wait to finish this and go back to get Quintessence done as well!]

By the way: Will there be an unencrypted version of the game?

Probably not, as I don't think there will be a point of it; as this is just a long cut-scene-esque short story and not a game. :p
