Sheesh, you guys. "Equivalent" was just a bad word choice. I meant that all Mary Sues are basically self-inserts, not that all self-inserts are Mary Sues. I apologize for my ineloquent and inarticulate argument. VBB's quotation basically describes what a Mary Sue is. Its interactions with other char...

But a Mary Sue is generally recognized as equivalent to a self-insert, and the term is derived directly from Star Trek fanfiction that did just that. Example: Superman is not a Mary Sue. He's super strong, super smart, nigh invincible and seems to have an endless array of powers and skills, but he's...

I always thought that the problem with Mary Sues is that they're injected into franchises with existing "hero" characters. So you've already got the super smart magic teenager who's destined to save the world, and then some kid writes a fanfiction with their own original character who also happens t...

Oh, I see it now. That's rather cool, actually.

So... what's the 'Z' key for?

Ohhh, now I understand. Forgive me, for I am a mere cretin, baffled in the face of true art.

Is the suicide button the Z key? That key throws an error and crashes the game, at least for me: RemoveObj: Tried to remove the player! Null pointer assignment I would totally be interested in a video. Moving tile-by-tile isn't necessarily a terrible solution for a retro puzzle/maze game. Alternativ...

I used to, but I never *finish* anything. So I stopped. Except for small things like that which I know I can do in one sitting. Oh. That's understandable. It's for this reason that most of my writing is just small snippets (also because I rarely feel compelled enough to record my ideas). With that ...

This is rather interesting. This feels like it has more potential than KUBE, at least with the Keen engine. There are some weird design choices that I didn't quite understand (a level that didn't need cubes to complete, the one where you can finish with one cube left and one cube taken by the ghost)...

This is also great, for the opposite reasons.

R.I.P. Rex. Unless he was a Vortininja and/or Raff doesn't have the heart to counterattack (Still not sure if these guys are going to make it).

Do you write somewhere? Like, somewhere other than random PCKF threads? If not... can you? Please?

Wow, the first positive remark about the physics in over two months. I'll take this as a step in the right direction. :)

Somehow I completely missed the request for full screen last time and I can't believe I didn't think about it... I'll put it into the next version.

My brother listened to him (I didn't buy music), and I'd hear him on the radio... I don't really remember the first time I heard one of Bowie's songs. A lot of things are like that for me. I always liked him, though.

Hi, people! I'm releasing a new version of the game. This version fixes the following things, from what I can remember: * Physics are tighter. Please, please, please let me know if this is better! * Fixed a glitch involving unlocking the characters while beating the demo. * Spawn rate of the Drop en...
