Great. Now I've just spent ages making a Dream17 videogame.

Curse you, Cisken1! *shakes fist* :x

But yeah, not sure I'll finish it or not. We'll see.

I voted RPG.

Just imagine like, Undertale, but all the characters are sigworms or something

I'd play it

Game update: Pilger is now in the game. The Dream17 Vending Machine is also in... as you've never seen it before!

NOTE: It's not really a game as such. I mean, there's not much gameplay. But you'll hopefully find it funny. I know I am. :)

lol, it's an RPG but without any fighting (although I may give you the option to spar with Zeor). I'm making it in RPG Maker.

It's more of a virtual pub where you can meet the Dream17 regulars, etc. There are still some simple puzzles to solve though (although you don't have to solve them). And lots of dialogue trees.

Lots and lots of dialogue trees. :P

But yeah, if anyone really wants to be in it, let me know so I don't miss you out.

What exactly are the requirements to be in? I mean, I know I'm not a regular by any definition of the word (Granted, I was on the old forum for a while way back in 2007-2008), but do you need a, like, cemented name in the "Worm Lore™" for it?

I suppose the only requirements are that I can think of some wacky gimmick I can solely base your character's traits around. For example, two people are in already:

Pilger: Has a beard
HuntaKilla: Is Australian

Of course, you can't just tell me what trait you think you should have. That would be too easy! ;) If I get desperate, I'll just base the trait around whatever your username or avatar is.

Oh, and I'm going to tend to favour people who are around at the moment. No point in putting in loads of references to old timers if they're not around to appreciate them.

Welp, I threw my new Sig's profile into the Character Thread, if you want to throw him in. I can understand why you wouldn't want to include the really obscure old references, maybe outside of kinda hard to find easter eggs (Sigworm Raps playing on the Jukebox? Bottle of Johnson's Inflammable Baby Lotion in the bathroom? Newspaper open to comic section, showing The Adventures of Slick's Hair and Apathy Sketchpad?), since they could just fly over people's heads. What kind of puzzles are you talking about?

Man, now I'm worried people are maybe expecting too much from this game. The 'puzzles' so far mostly involve correctly navigating dialogue trees, for example (although I'm hoping to come up with a couple of more inventive puzzles soon). Also, the art is just pre-made RPG Maker graphics (so people not worms). There is a character maker which allows you to customise characters in more detail (choosing hair, nose type, accessories, etc) but I'm a lazy, lazy man.

There's also only one room in the pub and a roof so far. Plus a basement! (NOTE: basement does not currently exist)

If you need help with sprites or something, I can try and assist. Hell, you're on a forum full of artists, I'm sure someone would be more than willing to help (also if you need music I can try and help with that too).

Cheers. I should be okay but I'll let you know if I need any help.

Currently in-game: Pilger, HuntaKilla, the Vending Machine, Bloopy (incomplete), Star & Moon, Slick.

It's going well! :D

Okay - music!

In the game, there's a piano player who you can get to play different songs (which provides the main soundtrack). I can easily find the songs on YouTube or whatever but I feel a bit bad just taking them for use in the game (and I can't really be bothered to get in touch with individual people). I mean, it's only a little game for the people on this forum and I could put a note with the game acknowledging the people who made the original versions but I dunno... what are people's thoughts on this?

Alternatively, if anyone is a great piano player, you can help out! ;)

NOTE: I also found a site of piano songs, which is creative commons, but it doesn't have specific tunes like the Worms theme that I might want to use (although I could always get one or two old classics from there)

EDIT: Actually, I think I'll just be cheap and use tunes from old T17 games. It's a shame to lose the piano theme but it gives the player more choice and fits the bar.

Since you don't intent on making profit out ot this, I think a note giving credits to the respective authors and maybe even a link to them would be perfectly fine.

I went with piano versions of things in the end as it seemed more apt. It's an eclectic selection but hopefully there'll be at least one tune there to tickle your fancy.

Currently in: Slick, Splapp, Star & Moon, HK, Sup, Pilger, Pooka, Bloopy.
Still to go: Cisken1, Zeor, and MonteCristo (AND WHERE IS WORM MAD?!)

Seriously, this game is killing me. I considered giving up, a while back, but I'd already come too far. Hopefully it'll be worth it.

Random and smokes cigars, also Army helmet but no army thing


Damn, I just noticed 'no army thing'. I'd been thinking "Well, I can't do the cigars or the army helmet but I can make him an old grizzled soldier type'. Now, you're just the gravedigger! (well, you were going to be the gravedigger anyway, to be fair, but an ex-military gravedigger!)

I'm really excited to play this. I have no idea what it will look like but I'm excited for it. :)

You can make me ex-military if you want to, I don't mind all that much ;)
