From what I can see by messing around on my own, I gather that it is not some ‘minimalist’ design and it is just related to Kongregate just not loading the icons. (Or more specifically, something called KongIco.)

There is the letters behind the icons – the ‘p’, ‘l’ and such – and that is what shows up instead. The thing is the text font also defaults to aria, which it typically is not. I still don’t understand how or why it happens, and searching brings up basically no results, besides one person having a similar but different problem during the split test from a few years ago.

That is all I can do at the moment, so I probably have to wait until it happens again to investigate further.

Regulars stay regulars. Guests stay guests until they turn into regulars. It is pretty simple.

If you are also referring to the changing from active/inactive/retired regulars, it may seem complicated, but I take the duty onto myself to make sure it is updated at the end of the month. This is to make sure the effort that went into the master thread is maintained.

My menu goes like that too. It frequently flips between those different icons and the regular icons, but I haven’t really had the chance to investigate/mess around with it.

FGF probably seems empty and divided is probably because all the continuous games from before have been moved to a new subforum, and all the remainder on this subforum is the slower, less numerous and more in-depth forum games.

Even if it does not seem active, forum games like Applebottom’s Exceptionals/Why Are We Here? do have a fair amount of players with 14 and 13 respectively, including reserves.

FIVE: A STORY ON PERCEPTION

A PLAY IN ONE SCENE


DRAMATIS PERSONÆ:

Mary: a silent bookworm and sole heiress to her family fortune.
Logan: potential suitor to Mary.



SCENE:


A posh study. Books of numerous sizes line the walls. The fireplace upstage is lit, with two black club chairs on both sides face downstage center. Above the mantle is a large mirror. A desk on upstage right is piled in books save for a section containing a journal. A pen sits on the journal, and an armchair is tucked underneath the desk.

Doorways are situated on the downstage left and downstage right. The room is moderately lit and quiet save for the crackling of the lit fireplace.



[Mary sits in the left club chair, absorbed into a hardcover book. After Mary turns a page, there is the sound of knocking on a door. After a moment, Logan enters downstage right. Mary looks up for a brief moment before closing the book and setting it on the arm. Logan silently walks towards the pile of books on the desk before grabbing the top one. Examining it for a brief moment, he sits himself down in the occupied club chair. Logan thumbs through the book as Mary resumes reading her own.]

Logan: [Aside.] Psychology. It always seems to be Mary’s passion, as she has aspired to be a psychiatrist since the first day I met her. Not that I understand a single thing about it with its ‘schemas’ and such.

[Logan places down the book, and shortly after Mary puts hers down again. Mary adjusts herself to look towards Logan.]

Logan: [Nervously looking down.] Mary, there is something I would like to talk to you about. [Mary looks towards Logan questioningly.] I know we have known each other for a good while, but I don’t think it will work out. You are an amazing woman, but I don’t think I am right for you. You may not be perfect, but you always put as much effort as you can into things. It does not matter what someone talks about, you always pay the fullest attention. Even your ability to recall the smallest of details is amazing.

[Short pause.]

Logan: [Frustrated.] But every time I tell myself that, I can’t help but think about how much I am deluding myself. I can’t help but think that nobody else is right for you. Others may see you as an oddity, but I certainly don’t. You are a person like everyone else, even if they don’t understand.

[Forcing himself up from the chair, he walks towards the right side of the mantle before staring at the mirror. Mary adjusts herself once again.]

Logan: Even so, I have not yet been able to give myself respite. No matter how convincing my argument to myself, I always thought of asking for your opinion. So, please, tell me what you think. [Logan glances solemnly towards Mary.]

[Mary sits still for a moment before standing up. After doing so, she moves towards the desk, sitting down in the armchair and taking up the pen. Logan moves to stand behind Mary’s shoulder. Mary begins writing.]

Mary: [V.O.] I don’t want to force you to choose, Logan.

[Brief pause. Mary looks over her shoulder to Logan for his response.]

Logan: The reason I am asking is to help ease my own mind. What if I leave and I realize I made a mistake? What if you marry someone you would later regret?

Mary: [Resuming writing. V.O.] I am deaf, not dumb. It is not like I have too many suitors in the first place, and those just after my money are easy enough to weed out. [Pause.] Go out. Explore the world. You will always have a place in my heart. If you come back, I will happily accept that. If you don’t, I understand that you have found your answer. [Glancing up to Logan, Mary smiles.] And if you do not come back, there will be many exciting tales to tell when we meet in the afterlife, and I will listen to them. [Mary stares at Logan again.]

Logan: [Nodding sadly.] That sounds fair. I do hope that you find someone yourself if I don’t come back. [Determined, he stands up straighter.] I should probably start planning, than. I will come see you before I leave, though. [Exit.]

[Mary sits still for a moment before writing once again.]

Mary: I will listen to your stories as long as my ears will let me.

[Closing the book, she places the pen on top before taking a long glance at the book.]

[Exeunt.]

(Round 3. Rough, but hopefully I will have time to edit it.)

Thief’s Trickery

It was relatively simple to get that conceited little girl to agree to a sparing session. She was the princess, and it was a matter of pride in her swordsmanship that prevented her from backing down. The humiliation that she has given me shall finally be repaid in multitude.

Walking inside the castle training ground, the lack of observers was appreciated. All the foolish knights were currently too busy patrolling the town in search of an illusive thief under the kings orders, but it is not like they are going to find him. They will be nowhere nearby.

It was when he arrived at the main sparring area did he see the princess standing in the middle of the field with her back turned towards him. It would be easy but not that fun to kill her at the moment. Checking to make sure the dagger in his boot was able to slide out easily, he finally drew his engraved sword, the main cause of the missing guards. It was a precious heirloom, and the lives of the guards depended on its retrieval.

When he was a few paces behind the princess he raised the sword to the nape of her neck. “You are open.” As she slowly turned around her eyes glared down the length of blade until he lowered the sword from its position. It was a simple matter to allow her to draw her sword, so she grasping desperately for the hilt before she finally drew it.

Taking a few steps back, we raise the swords against each other. Her stance was a nice and typically sturdy one, but due to her trembling body, there were several obviously exploitable openings. But, once again, it would not be too fun. “Do you know why it ended up like this?” She answered the question with a simple nod her head. It seems she was dedicated, so there is no more point in delaying it any longer.

With that, the sword fight started. It was tedious to any openings, but he also had let a few of her advances get close before finally blocking them. As he forced himself to take a few steps back she became more confident in herself. Her movements became more sure and it was becoming a better spar overall. He eventually fell to his knee as he tired of falling back. “It’s over.” Grabbing the dagger with his free hand, he stood up again while holding the dagger behind his himself. Taking a step, he turns his ornament sword around, offering it to the princess. “You have bested me.” As she put her own sword in its sheath, she took a step forward while smiling at her victory. It was then that he tossed the sword aside into the soil and lunged forward with the dagger.

Letting out a gasp at the dagger pierced her flesh, it was too late for her. A few more stabs guaranteed her fate. As she collapsed, he did not bother pulling out the crude instrument. Instead, he went over the get the sword he had discarded before returning to the body once more. With a final stab, the blade stood perpendicular in her body telling whoever found it that the thief has killed the princess. He walked leisurely away from the body, doubting anyone would claim he killed his own daughter. She had disgraced his regal name, so it was necessary to do away with her.

[This is going to be quite long once I get more written out.]

TwoKnight

Short, one-sentence description: An indie game where you suffer the mockery of dark and stormy nights but the controls are ridiculously difficult.

Platform: Microsoft Windows exclusive. Uses Unity.

Genre: Roguelite Realt-time Strategy with RPG/escort elements.

Story: Told largely in flashbacks and an intro cutscene. Minimal exposition through dialog or notes.

Having lived underneath the rule of a cruel successor to a king he was indebted to, the cowardly Gray Knight is forced to choose his ideals and forego his honour. Marked for death, Gray Knight flees underneath the veil of a recently perpetual storm, but soon finds himself in as an unwittingly in the middle of a feud of werewolves, vampires and an army sent by the new king.

Along his journey, he finds a fellow knight calling themselves Grey Knight, who declares they would protect Gray Knight if he swears allegiance to them. After agreeing the game finally starts off.

Objective: To flee the night, hopefully surviving to see daylight.

Gameplay: Permanent death for the two simultaneously played characters is a key feature. There is no ‘save’ system, harkening back to the good old days, and there is no ways to revive characters if they die.

Gray Knight is ill-prepared with a solitary dagger off the start, and unaccustomed to the heavy weaponry that the King’s men carry, himself used to using a simple short sword or rapier and refuses to discard the dagger no matter how troublesome it can be due to particular memories associated with it.

Grey Knight, though, can carry around a massive zweihänder and kite shield with particular easy, performing decisive maneuvers with ease while slicing through swathes of opponents, but they are not as mobile as Gray Knight.

Each character has an individual health bar, with Gray Knight having a much shorter one than Grey Knight, and little way to regenerate it outside of having both knights rest in real-time. Ambushes can occur, so it is recommended to be on the watch during this time

There are no puzzle elements, instead, where the developers thought it would be a good idea to put puzzles, they instead put multitudes of incredibly tough enemies meant to obliterate all your hopes and dreams.

Controls: UHJK to control Gray Knight, arrow keys to control Grey Knight, left mouse button to do a basic attack with Gray Knight, with right mouse button doing the basic attack for Grey Knight.

Holding down button modifiers, like [~] to do a strong attack while clicking, or holding right shift to have both block, or [(] and [)] to have individual knights block.

Blocking prevents the knights from attack, and takes a few frames to become active/deactive, so it is important to use them tactically.

Space bar opens up the menu system, but does not stop the game. To stop the game, you have to navigate the menu system itself to reach the pause button.

Ending: If the player can make it to the ending, the knights look out over a cliffside to a sunrise in the distance. After doing so, the player has to complete an unforgiving and unannounced QTE to avoid being stabbed in the back by an assassin because Gray Knight and Grey Knight were distracted by seeing the sunrise, which takes several minutes of intense focus to get through. Once the scene is done, though, it returns to the knights looking out over the cliff before a hard cut to credits.

If one of the Knights did not make it, the ending is instead different, in which the assassin succeeds arrives in the armour of the deceased partner before killing the unsuspecting knight.

Replay Value: If you do complete the game, you unlock “New Gray -” and “New Grey +”. Both have unlocked features like potentially randomized enemy placement and key mapping, but with prominent differences between both modes.

“New Gray -” has Gray Knight lose his entire health bar so that he dies in a single hit. This mode was made to please the masochistic people who would likely be the only reason why people would continue on the original game after dying for the umpteenth time.

“New Grey +” flips the roles of Grey Knight with Gray Knight, with Grey Knight now on the run, and Gray Knight is conspicuously the king in this alternate mode. Playing the single character, this mode also differs by giving Grey Knight an even bigger sword to let loose on the hapless enemies that killed you so many times before. Revenge had never tasted so sweet.

I think there should be a legendary game section of the master thread or maybe a sticky of its own, who’s with me?

First off, it would kind of be hard to describe what a ‘legendary game’ is in the first place. Is there going to be a necessary amount of posts? A necessary amount of players? Does it have to be part of a well-known series?

Secondly, adding another section to the Master Thread is possible, but our wiki does already have a notable games section, so it might be a bit redundant.

Lastly, numerous stickies do end up bogging down the forum, so making a separate sticky would be slightly counter-productive for something that is not likely to have a lot of traffic.

Those are my thoughts on the matter, but we can wait and see if others agree or disagree.
