Act 5 is a very fast-paced act, so I wanted to hold off on making these updates until I had the entire act completed and could post them all at once. This is not the place to leave you hanging for literal years as I've unfortunately done before (sorry about that.)

Oh God I remember this game.

Good thing I made an index page with all my past updates and an Act 3 recap and speculation so we can all refresh ourselves before I dive right back in! Seriously, I'm not even going to bother easing everyone back up to speed; I'm just going to write this for the future audience who's binge-reading this entire archive and just read the last update like five minutes ago. Are you ready? If not, the index is right there.

Now are you ready?

Okay, let's do this.

I WILL FINISH THIS GAME IF IT TAKES TEN YEARS AND KILLS ME IN THE PROCESS. For now, though, let's start by finally finishing chapter three!

Revisiting Deceiving Guidance [Apr. 19th, 2015|03:13 pm]

Having recently started playing some old ZZT games again, and also having watched Over The Garden Wall, I found myself thinking back with good memories on the early 2001 game Deceiving Guidance.

The game was created by Hercules and Hydra, two of the most respected ZZTers of the time, and the leaders of Interactive Fantasies, the most popular ZZT company* around. (* A group of a dozen or so people who put the company name on their releases and would collaborate with each other)

This isn't so much a Let's Play. I've already played the game to its end last night. I just happened to be taking screenshots intending to post what I found interesting about it on Twitter, but there were far too many screenshots and too much text as well.

Oh, hey, more Dagger stuff. This episode is actually 99% backtracking and covering the exact same content as the last one, only done much more carefully. In fact, cutting out the things we've seen already and only including the new stuff which I had overlooked before, I think this update is actually longer than the last one. That's what I get for wanting to update in a hurry, I suppose.
