Now that I have a computer and little bit of time I’m trying to make the game that I posted about 3-4 years ago?
I just liked that weird vibe so I’m building it out in Tyranobuilder which is good for someone like me who wants to mainly work with text and video and hates to program anything more complicated than a plain html webpage. It’s a very convenient little engine and you can really make proper FMV games if you want to.
Anyhow the game is about you being a gig worker who gets an assignment to get isekaied into the video game world undercover as Funky Kong’s cousin Pharma Kong. You move in with Funky and during the day you work at a pharmacy (you are replacing Freddy Pharkas) where you chat with video game characters about their bodily ailments. At night you chill with Funky and just kind of hang out while uncovering the truth about the world.
Here are some twitter posts I made about it
The structure of the game itself is based on a porn game called “Do You Have Akira Points?”. It’s sort of board game styled situation where after work you choose to rent a movie or go to the grocery store or buy a game and there is kind of a “hangout” mode where these manifest in various minigames. I eventually want to expand on that idea some more in a different project, too.
This is an Ultra Fanfic that is somehow also canon with Reboot and Tron and and Ready Player One and Kingdom Hearts and eXistenZ and Quantum Leap and assorted conspiracy theories and all sorts of things that make absolutely no sense. The dying dream of a 00s webcomic as it’s mind deteriorates.
