A challenge for Raynor
« on: July 01, 2016, 04:03:27 pm »
So, you've finished your university semester, and by a not-so-amazing coincidence, so did I, actually. While that unfortunately doesn't mean I have as much free time as I would've liked (since there's now a ton to prepare for next year over these two months), it does mean I'm open to challenges again.

As such, here's something to do with games. I've just discovered the so-called Silent Conversation on Kongregate. It's a very weird and wonderful experiment that I can't believe no-one's tried before. On its first proper level, The Nameless City, I've finished with a B (and have a screenshot of it.) If you, with apparently greater platformer experience, can beat it, I'll watch a film of your choice.

Anyone else can try it, too. It's probably not even that hard, just time-consuming. Don't forget to take screenshots as proof if you manage it, though.

Nice, although I have some experience on plataformers, I prefer First person shooters and strategy games. If I outscore you, Neville, you must watch El Secreto de sus Ojos, an Argentinian film of 2010 that got my latest 9/10 score. It has terrific acting, interesting and well developed characters, and a ton of symbolism. I think that you could enjoy this one.

Well, this particular film might be a little difficult. As in, is there an English-language/subtitle version of it available? The version I just looked up appears to be unsubtitled.

Surely there is. Here:

Just hold on, Neville. I'm finishing Saving Private Ryan, then I will check that game out.

Well...fuck. My day became short again. Gotta play it for tomorrow, I guess.
 In the end, did you find a Subtitled version, Neville?

Not quite. After a long time of finding both unsubtitled versions and subtitles separate of actual film, I've switched to searching in Russian and got a version with crappy, but functional Russian dub. Not what I would've preferred, but it'll me fulfill the challenge, once you can you manage your part.

Alright, I finished "The Nameless City" and was so damn close to obtaining an A.
Here's the file for proof.

On it. In the meantime, what did you actually think of it?

It was a nice experience, albeit the immersion kinda broke away from time to time with some of the tougher jumps and some bullshit, but I recommend it.

Did you finish the other two parts as well? If anything, they're likely even more impressive, when you get the steep diagonal descents, the slowly increasing brightness as narrator learns to see visions without light, the "wind" that nearly prevents moving and such. Alice in Wonderland extract also had fun with the rabbit and the falling down, but it doesn't leave as much impression as Lovecraft's prose.

On the whole, though, I would definitely want to see what happens when something full-length is adapted in this manner. Perhaps first get into contact with Weir about some details (though other then the way powerful words' projections twisted and warped relative to direction, everything else looks similar to what I've already done in GameMaker a while ago.)

Then, find the material. It'll probably be another one of the works from 19th century and beyond (thus avoiding copyright) and preferably one most people haven't read already. I even briefly pondered if adapting Bloodstained Lion could work. While it would definitely make history, its style, if the first chapter is any indication, is far less description-heavy and more action-oriented, so only a looser, far more adaptation into a narrative slasher would do its justice (even if its less like The Witcher and more like Hyper Light Drifter due to obvious constraints.)
