Gonna Need More NPCs! | November 15, 2012

by Joe

Thanks for waiting! :D I’m moving on to sprites for TPD2 so, to all you funders, I aim to finish all the sprite perks in the coming weeks! Thank you for your patience as well!

Speaking of character sprites, judging by the size of the Hammerston map, we’re going to need a decent amount of NPCs – more than the amount of funders who are getting sprites. I could just make up new characters but I wonder if any of you would still be interested in funding TPD2 to get a sprite of yourself in the game. In the Indiegogo campaign, $40 got you:

– A sprite of yourself in the game as an NPC. You get to choose what you want him/her to say!
– Access to the beta for testing and feedback.
– Access to the exclusive dev forums to discuss the game with us and other funders.
– A digital copy of TPD2 on the platform of your choice.
– Your name in the credits, of course :D

Please let me know if you’re interested and I may open it up! I won’t do a crowd-funding campaign again. This would be just for you – The Pocalypse readers :D

Enjoy Scene 5 – “Blood Ties”!

Who can you find in the Hammerston suburbs? Vote to see! Please vote for The Pocalypse here everyday! (Powerfist, Greybane, Rosa, Cross, Stinger, Jake, Obliteration, and Doc are in this one!) I’m going to try coming up with a new incentive every update (or every few updates) :D Thank you for voting!

You can follow The Pocalypse on Facebook, Twitter and RSS!

EDIT >> I’ve re-opened the Vampire Tier! Please visit the Store for more details on how to become an NPC sprite in The Pocalypse Defense 2! Thank you all for your interest and if you have any questions, please let me know! :D

A few theories. First is that victors blast almost broke the prison, damaging joes mind directly. This amnesia could be short term, but if it’s not, that adds more problems.

Second, there may be more minds in there. victors wasn’t the only one lost, so they could have all jumped to the open mind like victor did, making that a crowded head indeed, leading to, again, no memory, but loss due to it being another mind.

Third, victor could have damaged the prison enough to sort of leak out. This might create something like the semi-composite mind that joe and victor shared before victor became self aware, early on. With that, the effects could vary widely. Victor would be weaker, yet have more influence. Memory could be lost short term or long term. Victor could have lost HIS memory, as well. A complete blend, leading to incredible amounts of power, due to the joining, could have happened, which would be incredibly dangerous if memories resurfacing caused victor to be more in control.

Ultimately, there are just too many variables for accurate prediction, and it was a very well played plot twist. Bravo, Joe

Additionally (shame about the lack of an edit button), I’d support this project if I could, it’s one of the few things I actually load up every day with the hope that it will have updated (sadly, my hands, and my bank account, are tied)

@Joe: Yes, I agree with Le Gardon (Roach in French. I so smart!) It would still be awesome to do that, especially since I couldn’t pay then

maybe whWhoa… I didn’t see that coming. Now maybe whenever he runs into Annika or that other girl, he might not know them or it might jog his memeory.

Joe really needs to learn to stop going all wonky every time an evil being in his head is trying to escape and destroy the world

Hey Joe, if you did this, would we be able to simply add to the amount we already threw in to get to $40, or would we have to pay all $40 again. That could have a big impact on whether or not I decided to throw my wallet back into the ring. xD

Yikes that doesn’t bode well. But i’m really happy that Rosa didn’t fail. I thought, seeing from her earlier lack of control and innocence she wouldn’t be able to hold victor.

Joe is reminding me of Fei Fong Wong (Xenogears)… With Rosa’s role seemingly comparable to Wise Man, at least with respect to the main character…

… Great, now I want to call Victor ‘Id’. And I suppose that makes Andrius ‘Grahf’, kind of… And maybe Samuel can be compared to Abel, on some level. I need to stop my brain, now, before it gets any more weird.

What a twist!!! I wonder will Sam explain the whole connection thing with Rosa… like can Victor take over her body too because they shared blood?? And will Joe lose his memory for good?? O the suspense!! XD

Well, I would love to fund it Joe, but sadly, I am what one calls flat broke. I can give you some suggestions for NPC’s, but I can’t donate. I have a very active imagination, so I would be more than happy to help.

the plot twists make the story more convoluted than the human brain.
