B M S

by darkstarmatryx - 48 Hour Compo Entry

What are the B M S and can you survive long enough for it to matter, in the Text-Based Adventure game. Be prepared to die a few fun times.

I know the windows version works, I can't guarantee that the OS/X or LINIX x86 versions will work.

Very interesting. It had me trying to find the right choices over and over again. Kinda wish it was longer tho. Does the voice sound not work?

Sorry about that, I should have removed that from the preferences as that no vocals were recorded for the game.

That was fun and I enjoyed the plot. Always remember kids, when you're walking down the street--a fissure may suddenly open!

It reminded me of the choose your own adventure books back from when I was a kid.

I'm glad to hear that ScreamRawr. I wanted that creepy old book feel.

I quite liked this as a fan of text adventures and the like. A few commas here and there would be nice; natural pauses in the sentences do a world of good! :) Still, I did quite enjoy this - good effort! :P

Interesting. I enjoyed it quite a bit - wasn't quite 'Thy Dungeonman' style like I was expecting, but still very good. A few typos here and there.

Fun game. Having the text in small print down at the bottom of the screen chipped into the impact of the writing a bit. Would have loved seeing some still images to go along with the text (I get the impression that's where you were going with it), but the text would do just fine front and center too.

Oh, and mutants. MUTANTS! : D

I died in many different ways, but I had fun doing it.

Aug 29, 2012 @ 10:02pm

Tompudding, Glad to hear that on both accounts. :)

Sorry, couldn't get it to run on 64-bit linux

$ ./B\ M\ S.sh
./lib/python: 23: ./lib/python: /home/xxx/Downloads/ludum-dare-24/B M S-all/lib/linux-x86/python.real: not found
./lib/python: 23: ./lib/python: /home/xxx/Downloads/ludum-dare-24/B M S-all/lib/linux-iliad/python.real: not found
Could not find a python that runs on your platform. Sorry.

$ which python
/usr/bin/python

$ python -v

Heuermh, I know that was why the linix version says x86 and not x64. The version of ren'py I used didn't support 64bit linix distribution. Sorry.

Very interesting story, I'm not finished yet, but no matter, you did a save game system, and that's great man. I felt no need for graphics, because the story is very instigating.Well done.

Sep 1, 2012 @ 2:58am

Well, Thanks for the complement. I'm glad the story held up, I was a tad worried about not doing backgrounds. Sadly the save game system is just engine implementation.

Yay! Ren'Py games!
The story was interesting and the choices were plausible.
I think it would have been better in NVL mode. http://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/reference/NVL_Mode

Sep 4, 2012 @ 3:36am

The reason, I didn't go NVL with it was art was originally planned for the game. I had some issues with a scanner and art got thrown out the window for time reasons after that. I never switched the code to NVL because I planned to add art after the compo. As such I've begun work on an 2.0 so to speak that will add music, art and hopefully sound effects as well as lengthen the game, just without 48 hour time constraint.
