Cameo
« on: February 13, 2010, 12:29:55 AM »
Hey I was playing a game just now and noticed a particular cameo. It's a spoiler to tell you what game.

Sorry for being so mysterious.

Does anybody else know what I'm talking about?

I don't know what you're talking about but I would like to see it despite the spoiler alert. :P I have completed VVVVVV and don't really play modern games so I guess that would not spoil anything for me. You could post it in somewhat SPOILER-ALERTED and obscured way, so that people who want to see it can see it (and people who don't want to, won't have to ;])

I just now remembered the game you are talking about. And yeah it would be kinda spoiler to mention it. It's kinda cool to find out on your own, which I did a long time ago when it was originally released.

*Might spoil* -----> I don't suppose you're talking about the guy in the tomb of mad carew?

Heh, I did the same thing myself a few months ago :D Pity I couldn't get the sprites the correct height for JSWO without being really distorted.

Does MrPodunkian totally hate me or what? I can help but feel like he really has it in for me for some reason.

Regarding that cameo, someone from the Chaos Engine told me recently that there was a developer on those forums totally outraged about it. He actually seemed to think I was just ripping assets from old C64 games. He asked if anyone had been in touch with the Oliver Twins to tell them about it. :D

On a personal level,I don't think he hates you. He thinks you're a great developer and he's said it before. He just has some strong opinions. I was actually the one to bring up the idea of making the sprite for JSW:O, but before I even started up Photoshop he had one done.

The game isn't jet set willy, and the it's not the guy from the tomb of the mad carew. I still don't want to spoil it, because knowing what game it is sort of spoils it. Anyhow allen you are probably right, you can PM me the name of the game if you want to know.

Terry the real question is, do you know the game? I won't spoil it for you, either. Hehehe.

Anyhow it's interesting! Also I don't know what mr. podunkian is all about. I think he runs pigscene about which I'm never sure if it's a parody of itself or just TIGS what, but it does have good writing and is funny if you don't take it too seriously. I hope he's not serious in what he writes there, I think it's more like double-irony. So my guess is that no he doesn't have it out for you.

I wasn't implying it was jet set willy, just thought it would be nice to share that shot.

And yeah, Terry does know the game. If you look for the original thread where it's at, he mentions it.

Sorry I just didn't understand what you were saying! =) Also I've never played Jet Set Willy...

Since I won't play every single game in existence, it seems to me that I'm incredibly unlikely to encounter this cameo myself.   Considering that, with most probability, I'm not currently planning on playing whatever this game is, I certainly wouldn't mind having it spoiled, and would in fact like to know what's going on.  PM it to me, maybe?  :)
