Yeah, that's something he discussed here as well.

Re: Unreleased NES games from Alp (Gallery NES hack)

I think it's quite clear that he is most likely a pathological liar, no need to rub it in. I don't think this has been that clear to most people here. After all, is there anybody besides me who ever called him out on it? All I read whenever Alp posted something was "Awesome!", "Can't wait to play i...

Re: Unreleased NES games from Alp (Gallery NES hack)

Yup. More still images. I don't doubt that he can draw. So, that Twitter post literally proves nothing. 100 times zero is still zero. By the way, he has a whole gallery of that: https://www.furaffinity.net/gallery/icelink256 For some, he only says that those are graphics, so nothing wrong with that....

Re: Unreleased NES games from Alp (Gallery NES hack)

Who even loses everything because of a HD crash anymore? People who never develop anything to begin with and who now need an excuse why they never publish anything. Hey Doug, if you ask him what became of the games, let me guess what he'll say: a) He'll give no answer. b) "I lost the games in a har...

Exactly. He mentioned, he claimed, he said. Notice something?

Re: Homebrews with female characters

Apparently both versions co-exist that Seiken Densetsu/FFTA was a FDS game latter ported to the GB and that it is a completely different game - and both exist that the FDS game was just a mere project or that it is finished. If it was finished, I hope a prototype will eventually be found that'd be ...

Re: Homebrews with female characters

To be honnest, while FF2's story line was complex by 1988 standards, seen from today it's lame and uninteresting. Well, I don't judge story by today's standards, simply by "Final Fantasy Adventure" standards. That I remembered well, the story less. But looking at the longplay it seems you are indee...

Re: Homebrews with female characters

It's not that the game looked too easy. I didn't actually look at the gameplay, but I'd look for gameplay improvement patches just in case the game turns out to have that characteristic 80s-early 90s difficulty so many games had. Shouldn't you at least check out the game yourself for 10 minutes bef...

Re: Homebrews with female characters

I'll try to answer to the gist of each topic: "Final Fantasy II": Looks like the plot is relatively complex. It's a pity that it's a turn-based RPG and not an action adventure, otherwise, it might have been something for me. Frozen in time, chocobo egg, pirates, Team Rocket: That's the very thing: T...

Re: Homebrews with female characters

In Yellow, your partner Pikachu hates you at the start, and grows to trust you if you treat it well and become a better trainer. That's a Tamagotchi-like gameplay gimmick, but it has nothing really to do with the overall narrative. When you beat them in one location, they refocus and attack a new o...

Re: Homebrews with female characters

I just meant that FF1 introduces some heavy themes that you wouldn't expect from a traditional save-the-princess type of game. Such as space travel and time loops. Complex themes is a common pattern in later Square games as well. Yeah, o.k., themes. But themes alone don't make a complex plot. "Time...

Re: Homebrews with female characters

Yeah Final Fantasy has like zero cut-scenes. Everything is told through NPC dialogue (the plot still gets quite complex near the end though). I don't find it that complex: 1. Save the princess. 2. Defeat the four fiends. 2.1. Some fetch quests. 3. Garland traveled to the past. Get after him. Now co...

Re: Homebrews with female characters

If we include adventure games there are probably tons of them with more story than FF Adventure. Probably. Or probably not. That's the big question. I used to think that "Final Fantasy" has a good plot, but when I actually looked at it: It's pretty much almost nothing. So, do you know one of those ...

When saying (non-Adventure) 8-bit games with lots of good story I'm not saying non-adventure games, I'm saying any games: Find me anything that can rival "Final Fantasy Adventure" in terms of plot, adventure or not. the first game I think about is Ninja Gaiden. This has a good story for a sidescrol...
