tsssssssssss

*drools venom*


Since this game started, I've been staring at spiders a lot more recently.  It is kind of incredible, if you get the chance, to watch a spider construct a web from scratch.  They're kinda genius for that, and the dexterity and fine motor controls they've got are unfathomable.

Uh, I mean down with the spiders :argh!:

have you ever seen a retarded spider?
i mean one that obviously was dosed with some chemical, or had some horrible mutation which prevents it from working right?
i watched this one spider construct a 'web' where he kept going around in the same ring over and over and over.
for, like, 20 minutes, she twiddled her spinnerets continuously for nothing.
terribly frustrating to watch...

I would've just killed it.  No sense letting it increase my universe's entropy.  I mean, it probably wasn't happy.

That Green Gentleman rushed about her room, frantically throwing clothes and other assorted things into a backpack.  She knew they'd be coming for her any minute.  She glanced out her apartment window, and saw the ragged horde marching up the street.  Only five of them left.  Five, she thought to herself.  The universe is an ironic bastard.

She walked swiftly to the back fire escape, and scuttled up to the roof.  She'd have to get away, recoup, find more of her kind somewhere else.  Maybe New Jersey.  At the very least, it was a plan.  Without looking back, she hopped and scrambled her way from building to building, following the setting sun.

The last of the citizens burst through TGG's door, looking wary but angry.  However, it soon became apparent that the last Spider had left town.  Relieved, they all started to smile.  The final strands of oppressive coercion had lifted from their hearts.  They knew that this was the end.  Never again would they feel the soul-sucking ennui.  Never another endless routine of work, eating, sleeping.  And now, they're never going to give it up.  It's never gonna let them down.  Never gonna run around and desert you. Never gonna make you cry, never gonna say goodbye, never gonna tell a lie and hurt you.

THE SPIDERS HAVE BEEN DEFEATED. THE GAME HAS ENDED.

In case you were wondering, this is what my spreadsheet looked like by the end of the game:




Well, that was fun.  Now, to review what worked and what didn't, and refine the game mechanics.

First off, MOTHERFUCKING SCRITTENS to LMNO, for the best (IMO) narration in a werewolf-type game I've seen so far!!




(as far as refining game mechanics, I dunno yet, I'm gonna wait for other's remarks and add to that.)

Aww, thanks.

I'll start a new sign up thread, and we can discuss what worked and what didn't.

Yeah, LMNO, that was phenomenal.  The narration made it.  Thanks a bunch.   :D

I think it worked just fine the way it was.
