      What's it about?
    • ¤RunninginReverse¤
      ¤RunninginReverse¤
      @MetronomeFanatic It's sort of a zombie apocalypse-type thing, but there are a whopping 3 different types of viruses spreading: Bloodlust, Corrupted, Twisted.

      Bloodlust basically makes people more violent, and kinda changes their appearances slightly, but has no real affect other than that most of the time. Only playable virus.

      Corrupted lose any semblance of "good" inside them and grow incredibly violent towards anyone who's not a Corrupted or Twisted. Intelligent enough to work together with other Corrupted, and can still speak English. Superhuman abilities.

      Twisted - Basically standard zombies. Only virus transmittable through a bite.

      I doubt it'd be your thing, since you're not really a roleplayer. I'd say I'm making a decent game system for it, though.
    • MetronomeFanatic

      EXCUSE ME?

      What's going on to cause so many types? Are they stemming from the same source or is this one of those "different kinds of crazy shit at the same time" settings?
    • ¤RunninginReverse¤
      ¤RunninginReverse¤
      I can confirm that them all springing up at once is no coincidence. Any further than that, however, is up to the players to find out.


  • Here, have some Bendy pixel art. ((Hands are the bane of my existence, but otherwise I'm pretty sure I did okay-ish?))

  • UPDATE: Overnight Watch is cancelled.

    Sorry, guys, but I have no motivation to continue working on it at the current time. I MIGHT start fresh another time, but for now consider it dead.

    On the bright side, however, I still have a few projects coming that I'm sure you guys will probably not hate. In fact, who knows, maybe one will come out soon. ;)

    I also might do a less serious thing with Shadow, more of a shitpost game than anything.

      Oh, and are those infected in any way related to the other dimensions you teased us with? Y'know, the Bright and Anti-whatever and stuff.

      @Jarr I don't know why "edgy" has such negative connotations. I've always enjoyed writing darker stories.

      To answer your question, though, the 9th is when he's fully involved, but the story begins showing hints of darker themes as early as the 3rd.

      @DicklordKravoka ???

      @Leun Only after posting it did I realize that it sounded like an insult.
    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @RiR No, dark stories are fine. Edgy stories are when something becomes dark or tries to be dark for no reason other than to be cool. For example, an actually dark story would be, say, the lore in Dark Souls, for example. Edgy things are more along the lines of Shadow the Hedgehog, where they try to be dark and brooding without much logical reason to be dark and brooding.
    • ¤RunninginReverse¤
      ¤RunninginReverse¤
      @Jarr . . .
      I only need to take one look at the source material to say that I have a reason for making it dark. You tell me one god-damned light hearted Slender Man story out there.
    • Vini

    • Jarr2003
      Jarr2003
      @RiR I know. It's just that your definition of "dark" seems to be stuff like ShadowinReverse stuff. ]

      Don't take what I'm saying too seriously, though. Maybe you will write a legitimately interesting story.
  • I'll be doing a thing on February 1st.

    Or, rather, starting the doing of a thing that's gonna be multiple days. But you'll be starting to see it on February 1st.

    Not related to my Shadow stuff, but I still kinda want to share it here, so I'm gonna be doing that.

  • I've recently picked up news about Marble Hornets making a comeback in comic form.

    The Slender shit seems to be having a resurgence now. As celebration, have a shitty-ass Slender Man pixel art. ((Also because I need practice with pixel art and humanoid figures.))

  • Oh my fucking god can I just stop getting ideas for projects please?

    Ideas that I have:

    - Choose-your-own-adventure type thing(on hiatus)
    - Overnight Watch(in progress)
    - A thing involving writing some lyrics and probably getting someone to sing them, too(???)
    - And a shitton of concepts that I still need to work on before I talk about

    I might have to postpone something until after school, at the very least. Most likely candidate is the CYOA, since I haven't been working on that much.

      @DLK All I really need to do for ONW is make sure the mechanics work in Beta Guard(I'm likely just going to tweak them if not, so I don't have to draw a whole new set of sprites again), then finish the monitor sprites and the phone calls(the former of which isn't really required and the latter is basically tutorial/lore) and I'll be golden.

      I haven't done any loreposting for the CYOA.
  • Accessing Soul Research folder . . .

    I have just made the most intriguing and terrifying discovery yet. Within the depths of this labyrinth that Shadow has constructed for the sake of his monstrous "games," he has sealed away lingering souls. 5 in all. For what purpose? Some twisted experiment? Or, perhaps . . . our one chance at escape?

    I will be performing more research into it soon.
    January 9
  • Looking for yet another Overnight Watch Beta Guard playtester.

    Note: The system has since gotten much more complicated since last time I stole borrowed a playtester. The amount of mechanics got bumped up from 2 to 5 different ones. Be prepared to be thrown into a complicated system immediately and without warning.

    Also, little to no lore hints will be present inside the Beta Guard Test Night, however you can find some.

    I've figured it out. I've always looked at Shadow's Viruses from a psychological standpoint, but now I believe that to not be entirely the case. It's an actual, physical disease. As in, a virus. Clever bastard.

    This virus seems to be spread by prolonged contact with him - at least a 24 hour period at once in his realm, or a mere 12 with the man himself in the same room. This virus, once obtained, seems to spread into your mind and alter how it works on a fundamental level, hard-wiring you to follow him. Very interesting. I'll have to run some tests and see just how it works.

    As it seems, this idea of there only being two realms is completely outdated among Voidwalker standards. It's quite interesting how our own species has barely been discovering the Void, whereas Voidwalkers have found not one but two other realms with their own, much more powerful entities than what we know here.

    The Bright, a realm of endless light. The Void's polar opposite, where entities known as "Brightwalkers" rule.

    And the Inversion . . . well, let's not talk about that. Nobody likes to think about that special kind of hell. Whether Bright, Void, or a human.

      Dead punishers hungry crows, corpses on hillsides.
      The ruined city, refugee quotas, smell of decay, a white truck filled of corpses, gloomy population.
      Shops are closed, but basements are open.
      Smell of blood like a cannibal's dream.
      Torn off heads, sabotage resistance groups.
      Damp brains on a Russian boot.
      Urks love to die at resorts of Donbas.
      Here cold ground takes up infection.
      Time to feed the crows, they demand meat.
      Living biomass gathered near Lugansk.
      I'll take a bird for recollection of the past.
      It ate your corpses, that means it is good!
      In my city there are too many crows, In my city there are too many funerals, In my city blood flows like a wide river, In my city punishers find rest.

      When they stop the Metro and turn out the lights.
      When hundreds of you die at the same time.
      When your neighbours are torn to pieces.
      You'll beg to be fed the Russian way.
      Wait for us, we will surely come for you and a hold a Russian parade on Maidan.
      Crows will fly behind our backs.

I'm just as excited to push this game out to the public as you guys are, but for that I'll likely need another playtester.

      @Vini Actually kinda means something.
      The two individual yellows are two individual people speaking separately, though they nonetheless have the same text color.

      The single silver is everyone talking at once, and thus it's bunched together under the same group.
