Hmmm... I don't know... Looks kinda boring. He doesn't get into specifically what your actually going to do in the game. Not a whole lot going on besides walking and talking to people, which is always good to do in between various points in a game, but can you make a whole game based around that alone? I'm sure you could. But besides the unbelievable and amazing fact he did this all by himself, the concept has shown nothing for me.
Also the character sprites look like edits from an RPG maker game. I should know, I'm a sprite artist myself.
Sorry to come off pessimistic, and while this guys got sorta the same dream I have (so I know where he's coming from), he seems to lack the dream of an original gameplay idea with his vision. God I must sound like a dick...
Didn't he barricade himself in his own home for a minimum of 100 days because Nintendo wouldn't give him some DS design kit for free or some shit?
What a loon.
I cannot leave this viridian room. The door is locked and barricaded from the outside. I am sleeping behind the camera, and yes- I've got a shower. Food is delivered once a week by a friend. I have no internet access, television, or game consoles besides those I am developing on. I can receive and send email on my Android G1, so I can get Nintendo's reply and update my site with tether. The LED counter will be incremented once a day, and sometimes it will display hints and secret messages.
This is my 100 day protest to Nintendo!
All I need is for them to allow me to purchase a DVD with the software I need to finish!
I met with Nintendo in February- almost a YEAR ago- to ask to purchase the SDK. I did teleconferencing. I flew to GDC and had a face-to-face meeting. I asked the WarioWorld division, and they sent me to marketing. I talked to marketing, and they said apply with WarioWorld division! The agreement on the application states I will receive a decision in 6-8 weeks. It has been 19 weeks! I fulfill all the requirements- I'm a financially stable registered company with a FEIN working from a commercial address. When Nintendo decides to approve my developer license application I will end my protest.
I worked on this project for five years because I wanted to make a "Nintendo game." I'm not about to give up just because some stubborn intern or mid-level marketing exec at NOA is deleting my emails! I want an answer, and I want to hear it from the top. Will themen of talent at Nintendo- those with passion and ideas of their own- dismiss mine?
I REALLY WANT TO FINISH THIS GAME!
Though he's been in the room for most of the past five years. That really doesn't help his protest any.
There is nobody like me. I have created the entire game, start to finish. I am far better than Miyamoto, Itoi, Kojima, Carmack, and Wright COMBINED. NONE of these "designers" could create the entire thing if their lives depended on it! They rely on the assistance of others- and take all the credit. They don't even deserve their titles! I have bested them all by far.
"bob's game" is a game by ONE PERSON, and it's one of the GREATEST GAMES EVER MADE- if not THE BEST. I stand alone on a mountain no other has even dared to climb. I have swam across the ocean only cruise ships could cross. I have walked through the desert of no return. I have stepped in the footprints of none, a path never taken. I have MADE HISTORY, and history cannot be undone. It's too late, Nintendo.
No man has ever accomplished what I have accomplished at 25 years old- it's no wonder you fear accepting this truth! My work has humiliated your teams of engineers. One young man- singlehandedly- has made their lifetime of work seem like child's play. How can they possibly compete with such overwhelming skill? It's not even fair, is it? That's too bad, Nintendo. I'm real, and I'm here. You can't ignore me forever. I AM RIGHT, AND IT WILL WORK.
I am the GREATEST GAME DEVELOPER THAT EVER LIVED. I am a GENIUS, and I will be around for the next 40 years- eating away at your company until it exists no longer. I will find way after way to slowly destroy your bottom line, and your business will fail. The name NINTENDO will be forgotten, a discarded husk like so many others. "bob's game" will live on FOREVER.
THOSE WHO DOUBT ME- YOU WILL BE PROVEN WRONG. IN TIME THE TRUTH WILL PREVAIL. PREPARE TO EAT YOUR WORDS.
YES, I AM COMPLETELY SERIOUS!
WHO'S TAKING NAMES NOW, REGGIE?!

Nester the Lark: Also, I know YL isn't into speedruns, but he might be interested to know that RPG Limit Break is having a Gust marathon all weekend, including several Atelier games.

nocturnal YL: Ah… Bad timing. I didn't read this until now, when it's almost over.

Nester the Lark: Well, if you're still interested, they'll be uploading the replays to their YouTube channel later this week.

Shrikeswind: I like that Mayles put her back in her kneepads. What's the last game they were in? One of the Kongas? It was a good look for her, albeit very 90's.

Shrikeswind: The jokes call to me, their siren song a temptation I can hardly bear, yet I must stay my tongue. Confound my dirty sense of humor.

Nester the Lark: The replies I see to anything Nintendo posts on Twitter are probably an indication as to why they abandoned Miiverse and decided that social media should be someone else's responsibility.

nocturnal YL: As mentioned in Twitter, I'm currently playing Atelier Meruru DX. I'm thinking about writing reviews for the Arland series afterwards, as well as making a second Nintendo Switch review video after I finish either this or my next game.

Nester the Lark: ^ I would be interested in seeing your reviews of the Arland games.

Nester the Lark: So, there's been Hyrule Warriors and Fire Emblem Warriors. But guys, how about this: Punch-out Warriors! It's like Punch-out, but you fight all of your opponents at once!
Nov 12, 2020 12:12:00 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Sounds punchy, but unless it's a real knock-out I don't think it'd be a hit.
