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.

I decided to give all of the Dagger of Amon Ra updates actual episode titles! And I also decided to make this index to list them all! I'm going to go back and edit the previous ones to add the titles and index links, and I'm going to edit this index page with the new episodes going forward.

INDEX:

Part 1: Murder and mugging! Oh, New York. :)
Part 2: Offensive stereotypes
Part 3: 45 seconds
Part 4: The night that never ends (Part 1)
Part 4: The night that never ends (Part 2)
Part 5: Gore and glitches
Part 6: Museum burglaries
Part 7: Beaks beaks beaks beaks beaks
Part 8: SCREAM!
Part 9: In which the game broke
Part 10: Giving the Countess a break
Part 11: Again and again (Act 3 finale)
Post-act 3/Pre-act 4 recap and speculation

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.

I swear I do still intend to finish this game someday.

This is going to be a shorter update, mostly just because I wanted to post something. I could have waited until I had gotten farther and had more content, but I think we've been waiting enough already.

Today on The Dagger of Amon Ra, anyone playing a drinking game with a "Laura Bow stumbles upon a corpse and screams" stipulation will get alcohol poisoning. And then Laura will stumble upon your corpse and scream.

I'm not even going to make excuses anymore; I didn't get around to this game for ages because I didn't get around to it. I do still mean to get through it at some point, though! Here, then, is another update.

On today's adventure, we find out that I haven't touched this game for so long that a computer reinstallation took out my most recent save file, which set me back until around the end of chapter 2/start of chapter 3, but that's all right because I missed something vitally important anyway. (With two walkthroughs!)

Also, in this update, we discover another body, and I accuse one of you--yes, you, my reading audience--of murder. Which one, though? Is it you? Keep reading to find out!

All right, so last time got a little weird. Now that I've calmed down a bit, let's ... try this again.

First off, my apologies for the delay on this update. Things like a convention, having to get a new computer and moving all my data over, and just general busyness from work happened. Also, there's a bit of an issue with Clickteam's image hosting. Everything is on kjorteo.net now; we'll see how that works out in the long run. I do intend to see this through to completion, though! So, let's try more of this Dagger of Amon Ra stuff, shall we?
