Description

Wealth, fame, power.
The man who had acquired every Misao in the world - the Pirate King - said these final words at his execution:

"My makerscore and misaos? If you want them, I'll let you have them. Look for them, I left them all in one game!"

Now people chasing their dreams head towards the Full Games List. The world has entered the Great Age of Games!


And it's up to you, as members of RMN, to hunt down the most elusive of these beauties and put them where they belong - in the reviewed pile.

Well, I got a review done for "The Unwelcome Guest". Though, I'm not sure if I was the best person to cover that game. After all, I tend to stick turn-based RPGs for the most part.

Review submitted for Deymoun


Oh yeah, did you find that weird NPC in the town.

You're magical to me.

Absolutely loving seeing the reviews pour in, and a lot of these hidden games getting some love! Great work, everyone ^_^

I don't remember, I didn't make sure to speak to everybody in town.
(I don't recognise the character image, if that's significant)
I'm guessing that you didn't talk to him then.

OK, not obvious that house is enterable because of the fixed camera.
I suppose he's an easter egg (character from another game, or self portrait)

These new ones don't look half bad. People will be probably all over that obvious chrono trigger fan game so I'll be going for one of the other ones.
Well, I've crossed "The Doctrine of Perseverance" off the list at this point.

Perhaps, but I'm more of the opinion that the developer may have originally intended to go with that look for all of the characters, but changed his mind in the middle of the project and simply overlooked that NPC. After all, he is stashed away in an area that's easy to overlook because of the camera's fixed angle.

Makerscore is a structural weakness.

Right back off residential, time to play some games.

Did people avoid the missed bounties for a reason?
Frogge
"nothing can beat the power of gay"?
11122
I did. Here's my reasoning for each.

Help Me: It's a demo
Crowded Spelunky: I don't know how to go about reviewing a spelunky mod
The Treasured Medallion: Apparently it's 30+ hours long
Detective Butler: Didn't catch my interest
Green's Dream: It's a demo
SRW 2: Yoshi's Archipelago: Literally half of us are listed as devs for it
Pixel Oscar 2: Mask of Nightmares: Didn't catch my interest


Can't speak for everyone, though.
I really wish I could get in on this, but between real life and my secret identity fighting doing crime, I only have time to either make or review, and I'll always choose creating over critiquing.

Anyway, I am 90% sure Liberty told me this was okay and if it's not I apologize:





(Yes I am aware what a messy hatchet job I did on the graphic design while making these up no I don't REALLY care.)

Bounty posters are links to games.

(While they're all jokes the bigamy "charge" is the only joke that isn't reflected at all in the game. I've just been playing WAY too much Red Dead 2, and usually the bounty posters in that say something like "Murder, Arson, and Bigamy" or "Armed Robbery, Attempted Murder, and Unnatural Animal Husbandry" in a running gag.)

The rewards I've offered aren't bogus, they're real. Historically 2500 words of my writing has been worth around $87.50 so it's a pretty good deal actually ;).
Well, I got a review in for "Chrono Shift". Though, If I managed to beat everyone else to the punch remains to be seen.

Did people avoid the missed bounties for a reason?


I mostly skipped over them because I don't care about the games themselves. Though, I might come back and cover a few of them if their still available on my days off from work.
I meant just throw a link in asking people to play. Not making up images. People looking for games to review can just check them out.

You gotta give credit to him though, he took his time to work on these "unofficial bounties", which frankly, look pretty good aside from looking a little wonky at the bottom.
Honestly, I might be willing to take a look at one or both of them if StormCrow is willing to confirm that the game's are rather short. After all, I've been trying to push myself pretty hard in order to reach the 25 review mark.

Crowded Spelunky: I don't know how to go about reviewing a spelunky mod

It's not so different from an RTP-based RM game. The graphics and mechanics are provided by the engine, and I changed some stuff to make it worse different. Familiarity with the original helps, but isn't completely necessary.

The TM is for Totally Magical.

And I reviewed Emperor of the Moon.

And I've done Sammy in Opaland.
Day WAT
A piano ate all the bounties. But this next set looks cool. As it turns out, I've played the Will Smith game on the gamepage of "will you ever return" but I havent played any of these games. And they arent all just demos this time. Someone did mention earlier that bounty systems make people rush thru the games, and I'm starting to feel it happening...
To be fair, it looks like a lot of the games in the last set were rather short. In fact, I'll probably tackle a few of them over the next couple of days in order to reach the 25 review mark.

On the plus side, this event has insured that I'll be the next person on this site to have over 20,000 MS. In fact, the only barrier to that at the moment is waiting for my reviews and Let's Plays that are currently in the queue to be accepted and my score updated accordingly.
