YEASTER'S PROFILE

Hi! Thank you for peeping at my profile.

I like making modern-themed games. My first game, Onyx, was made in 2006, when I was a senior in high school. So it's pretty ROUGH, but people seem to like it? Total Chaos is my personal favorite, but it has some, erm, issues, too. Mystery Man Zero is coming you guys, I haven't forgotten about it. A full-game will come out even if it takes 10 years. Oh gosh, I hope it doesn't take that long, but you get what I'm saying, right?

Right now, I am also working on A Nightmare in Sunnydale, a horror genre mesh-up fangame, if you will. I also like playing games. Actually, playing RPGM games is legit one of my favorite pastimes. *insert smiley here*

When I can fit it in, I do a little bit of Gatekeeper as well, a sci-fi fantasy about a team of god-lite forces, Gatekeepers, who have to protect the dying Earth from forces they don't even know about.

If thou think they can take it, download some of my stuff!

[RM2K3] RPG Maker 2003 facesets?

Hi. I'm hoping I can find someone who can make facesets for me. I'd prefer art that leans towards realistic (so no anime-style, at least not heavily). I would like 18 individual faces. Would anyone be willing to help me? Thanks.

I know what the characters look like in my head, so I'd like to give someone a description of what I want the character to look like or a character-set of them and the artist could work from there. Is this too much?

Strange VX error

So this error message didn't pop up the first time I've played through this event. I didn't change anything (that I know of?), but now I'm it has happened three times and I'm at a loss as to what to do.

A character is supposed to fight this battle solo. I add her into the party and remove everyone else before the battle begins. This is the message:



What does this mean?? How can I fix whatever is wrong? =(

HipHop Gamer

Has anyone heard of him? He's a rapper who's also a huge gamer and he reviews games and stuff. In some of his videos he interviews some industry folks.

I stumbled upon him a month or so ago and I really like him! Funny guy, and I love his passion. I feel like he stands out from other youtube VG journalists.

He's definitely gotten me back into gaming. I'm even thinking about buying a PS4, and I didn't think I'd buy another system again. :x

Apparently he has a website too: http://hiphopgamerinc.com





Total Chaos - The written

Yeaster writes something pt3

WARNING: NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!



BACKGROUND: Last night , the assignment was to write from the perspective of someone's whose thoughts and actions don't make any sense to us, and write it so that we would be able to get a picture of what kinds of things would go on in that person's head, while the rest of the world goes "WTF O.o"

So, I decided to write about... Well, read it here.



---



















“HEAVEN ON EARTH”






My heart fills with light as I press my lips against his. I can almost feel it pouring out of my eyes. I thought that I would never feel this way again after the first time, but—pardon the dramatics—but I seem to glow even brighter. Each time feels like the first. I’m convinced that this is the highest I’ll ever reach to perfect bliss.



I sit back and stare at the boy. My son is about his age, but not nearly as beautiful. His blonde hair walks a thin line between long and short, kempt and messy. His piercing jade eyes peer into my dull brown ones. He’s like a glass doll come to life, not a speck of hair on his body, his glistening skin as white as marble. Who knew Mother Earth was capable of such perfection?



I have spent my whole life being a shadow. Never the bachelor. The star student. The top biller. Neither my wife nor son can stomach the sight of me. And how could I blame them? Who would want to be seen with me?



Yet, he does. Where I see a monster, he sees a king.



Some may say it is because of his age, his ‘lack of experience’, but I do not believe it so. Perhaps ordinary children cannot enjoy the pleasantry of quote-unquote “true love”, but this is no ordinary child. I am sure of it. In fact, he’s…well…something of an angel. Yes, an angel. Made especially for me.



As I lay him on the carpet, his eyes shoot into mine, wanting. I close my eyes and enter.



Heaven on Earth. If heaven exists at all, surely, this is it.

Thoughts??

So Yeaster wrote 2,700 words

So. Much. Text.

Hello all. This is the prologue to something I wrote in my spare time while I was looking for a job (and strangely once I actually found a job, I was writing even more... o.O). Anyway, the story itself is done and I'm now revising it, but I'm looking for some extra pairs of eyes to help me out, as well as some advice from local artists.

Anywho. This is a horror story, character driven, with fantasy elements. Think of a kid whose father is The Evil Dead, and mother is Silent Hill, but who has a bit of A Nightmare on Elm Street blood in her family. Of course, honest constructive comments are appreciated. If it sucks ass, hey, tell me that, too. haha

If you can actually sit through this, you'll get a dollar.

THE UNSEEN

PROLOGUE


. . .

Marcia Jarvis had little reason to suspect that she was going to die today. Nor did she expect that Brady Mitchell, her next-door neighborhood and lover, would murder every living member of her household.

Twigs, sticks, and leaves carved her cheeks as she ran through the midnight forest. Her fear made her immune to the pain. She had been on her feet for nearly an hour, her heart beating faster than it ever had before. Her lack of breath did not stop her. She wouldn’t let it. If she stopped, she was dead. Even if she wanted to slow down a bit, she couldn’t. Her legs were almost acting independently, and she had neither the strength nor the will to go against them.

Her brain was bombarded with questions, questions she could not answer. Questions she could not silence. She thought of every possible conclusion but nothing made sense to her. Red fury washed all over her. She felt helpless; a mere pawn in fate’s cruel and twisted game. In some ways she was.

She was not a minute older than nineteen. She was the tallest girl in class. Third tallest student overall. Her eyes were chocolate brown, matching her shoulder-length hair that she usually kept tied up in a ponytail. Her skinny arms and flat chest plagued her since she was small. Her robust jaw-line earned her the nickname “Marcus Jaw-vis”. While that was a tad extreme, it was true that she wasn’t the most feminine girl in class, and painting her face with cosmetics only heightened her harsh features. Chap-stick became her only source of makeup.

Brady Mitchell was the boy that every girl wanted. Never in a million years did she think she stood a chance with him. They had lived next door to each other since she was five. Her parents had just moved to Santa Monica from Lake Charles. It would not be until grade six before they’d exchange more than two words to each other.

The subject was Earth Science—his favorite, her most reviled. Her hatred for all things science reached its peak when the mid-quarter review was placed in front of her. The material looked vaguely familiar; she knew she had seen it before. The answers were just on the tip of her brain, held back by something invisible. She dug and dug until deciding it was pointless. She thought about fleeing to the bathroom. Figured she’d hide behind a stall until the bell rang. She heard a whisper, turned to it, and saw Brady curling his hand into a “C”. They then worked out a system. She would let him know if someone was watching (specifically Mrs. Carson, who taught the blended sixth and seventh grade class) and he would give her an answer.

They'd been inseparable since. By grade nine, he professed his love for her. By graduation, he proposed. Despite her doubts—and there were plenty—she accepted. She knew, believed rather, that they would iron out the kinks somehow. Together.

Marcy knew that keeping the engagement a secret was going to be more trouble than it was worth. For starters, she was a spectacularly awful liar. Secondly, once she got the ring she would never want to take it off. Brady did not agree but there was no use in trying to change her mind. The best route to take, he figured, was for them to share the news together. First, they'd tell her parents, then his. Marcy saw her family’s annual camping trip as the perfect way to share the news (every July, she and her family would spend five days at the camping resort in Oregon; the place was so darn big there was always something new to explore). To Brady’s surprise, Marcy’s parents welcomed him aboard. “Oh, Brady isn’t that kind of boy,” Patricia Jarvis explained to her husband. “He’s a sweet young man. Bright, too.”

But he was now a murderer, and Marcy was set to be his last victim.
A pit lay before her. Her mind was in such disarray that it wasn't until she got close to the edge when she noticed it was there. She leaned back so she wouldn't fall in. She wobbled too far back and ended up falling on her bottom. She crawled to the edge, despite her heart (and her mind) telling her not to. She looked inside. Then screamed.

The pit was filled to the tip with mutilated corpses, dismembered pieces of the people she once called her family. Two bodies were missing. One was Reese, her eldest brother, whose murder she had just witnessed. He had thrown himself in front of an axe that was meant for her.

The other was James, her twin brother, whom she last saw hiding at the rental cottage. She hoped—prayed—that he was still alive.

Bushes rattled behind her and she shut up. She rose to her feet, circled around the pit, and kept going forward. The aches and pains in her legs and arms were beginning to wear on her. Her legs slowed down and her throat burned from all of her heavy breathing. If she did not find a safe haven soon, she was no more alive than road kill.

Like a light at the end of a tunnel, an old wooden cottage sat at the end of the trail. Leafless trees circled around it as if it were its own private sanctuary. Marcy pushed with everything she had. She threw herself inside and slammed the door shut.

It was nearly black inside. She had been staying at a similar cottage for five days but this one felt different, like a place where people were sent to die. She slowly stepped away from the door, silencing her breaths. She stared at the handle as if it was going to move itself.

Obscured in the darkness a few feet behind her lay a corpse face down on the naked floor. The body belonged to a man, same age as she, who shared her gawky frame, hair, and eye color. There was a hole in his chest, deep enough to put your first through without having to worry about getting any blood on it. Entwined in his milky fingers was a handgun.

Marcy felt her heel make contact with something hard. She jumped, almost shrieked. Threw her hands over her mouth to keep it in. Every muscle in her body trembled, her sweat so thick her tee shirt felt more or less like an added layer of skin. What is that? She bent over to find out. She grabbed the object, turned it over, and…

A piercing cry escaped her lungs. Her back hit the door, her fingers quivering under her cracked lips. The body belonged to her dear brother James. People assumed that since they were twins they must have been close. That couldn't be further from the truth. But she loved him dearly, always had. For the first time in several years, they had formed something of a friendship.

But James was dead; their friendship terminated before it properly begun.

Slow footsteps prowled towards the cottage from outside. Marcy forced the handgun—her father’s only reminder of his time in the service—out of James’ hands and disappeared into the bedroom, unaware of the trail of blood leading in that direction.

. . .

Marcy stood in the far corner of the bedroom, back firmly against the wall. Her wet brown eyes fixed on the doorknob. Fear kept her from holding the gun steady, but she was more than willing to shoot whatever walked through that door. Especially if it was Brady.

She heard the door outside open slowly. A gasp inched up the walls of her throat but she slapped her mouth shut to bury it. Heavy stomping approached the bedroom door. Boots. Brady’s boots.

A bladed object of some sort, no doubt the axe Brady used to butcher her family with, hit the floor. It dragged as the wielder drew closer and closer to the door. Her eyes trailed to the door. Two feet stood on the other side of it. She could see the shadows. Her eyes sealed tightly and her whole body shivered, but she forced herself to keep quiet.

It didn’t work. The wielder threw the axe against the door, and Marcy covered her ears and screamed. After four hits, the doorknob shot across the room like a torpedo. After five hits, the door was no more.

A young man stumbled inside. He was a year older than Marcy was at most. His blonde locks were cut short, and his biceps outweighed Marcy and her brother combined. Little tan dots sprinkled the arc of his nose, the only feature of his youth left untouched. His white tee shirt and blue jeans were drenched in blood, dried and fresh. His movements were slow, his coordination poor. He was getting tired.

His eyes reeked of desperation. They were like two empty holes, devoid of humanity. He held up his left hand in peace and crept toward her. He didn’t bother to lose the axe.

She swallowed hard and aimed the gun at the thing masquerading as her lover.

“Don’t you fucking move, you bastard!”

He came to an immediate halt. He looked surprised. He shouldn’t have been. He didn’t have the right.

He started with, “Marcy, please. Let me explain.” His voice never raised above a whisper.

“I mean it! Stay away from me!” Her body was trembling, but her voice was stern and cold. She meant it, and he knew it.

“I was trying to protect you.”

“From what, Brady? You’re the one holding the axe! You’re the one with their blood on your clothes!" Behind her pooling tears was a smoldering rage that threatened to explode.

Brady's desperation began its shift into impatience. He rushed toward her but she cocked the gun and he stopped instantly.

“Listen to me,” he barked. “Those people were not who you think they are. Those…those things were not your family.”

She bit her lower lip. She was sick of hearing this. Since the second day of the trip, Brady had been "cautioning" her about putting too much trust in her family. They had gotten into a big fight over it early yesterday morning. The subject had been dropped, so she thought. But since he could not use his words to haul her away from her family, he decided to use his blade apparently, the same blade he threw at her when she refused to go with him. Had it not been for Reese, she wouldn’t be standing there right now.

She knew what she needed to do now. She had known what to do when life departed from Reese. But no matter how badly she needed to do it, wanted to do it, she could not bring herself to pull that trigger.

Brady saw the confusion on her face and stepped forward. He shed a tear, the first time he had down so since he was twelve.

“Why?” Marcy cried, head swaying side-to-side.

“Because I couldn’t let them have you.”

“So you had to kill me?”

“I wasn’t trying to kill you. I was trying to save you.”

She wanted to believe him, almost did. Then she reminded herself that the man standing before her was not Brady Mitchell. Everything about him had changed. His voice, energetic and full of life before, had become husky and dark. His skin had gone pale, streaked with red and black veins. He walked with a hunch and moved as though he was learning to walk for the first time. She toyed with the idea that he was possessed by Satan himself. Whatever the case may be, one thing was certain—he could not leave the cottage alive.

She held up the gun and stared at the beast in its eyes. “Step back, Brady.”

“You need to understand.”

“Stay. Back.”

“You’re making a mistake!”

He lunged forward; she fired her first bullet. He fell on one knee, his shaking hands moving toward the burning hole in his stomach. He looked up at the sniper. Tried to call her name but the pain had tied his throat into a tight knot. He could make sounds—husky sounds, as if he was trying to breathe on the moon. But no words.

Making the most of his parting strength, Brady pulled his knee off the floor and edged toward Marcy, his left hand out in front of him, his right hand gripped firmly around the axe. Marcy fired again. He kept going. Every step he took earned him another bullet, each one pushing him further and further away. No fewer than eleven hits did his body finally hit the floor.

His breaths were few and far in between. Had he been a normal human he would have died shortly after the second or third bullet. Maybe even the first, if she was lucky. But there he was, eleven bullets in and his heart was still pumping. Perhaps his heart had nothing to do with it. Maybe he was acting on something else, controlled by some other force. Whatever it was, it was weakening. His breaths came to a complete stop, as did Marcy’s sobbing.

She gazed at the corpse. She kicked its head. No response. It looked as dead as any other corpse, but she wasn’t convinced. She aimed at the head and fired. The silver pellet dove straight through its skull and a geyser of blood mounted from the hole. She pressed the trigger again. Nothing came out.

Unsettling silence crept in. She tossed the gun. She retreated to the corner of the room and sank to the floor. She brought her knees up to her chest and wrapped her arms around them. She hung her head down and wept. She had taken a life. She had taken his life. She might as well have turned the gun on herself. Nothing was going to be the same after this.

Her isolation was cut short when the sound of dangling chains encircled the cottage from outside. She lifted up, unsure if the strange sound was real or derived from her delusions. It wasn't.

Not this time.

The sound got louder as it drew near. She stole the axe from her lover’s corpse and rose to her feet, keeping her back against the wall. She glared at the door. The tears she shed had dried and her wrath reached a pinnacle she never thought possible.

Within seconds, the floor was deluged under a thin cloud, coming out of the countless cracks and holes that speckled the room. Marcy backed away from it as far as she could, but could not escape its touch.

The outside door burst open. Marcy covered her mouth to bury her gasp. Something stomped inside, some kind of…animal or something. Its movements were slow but strong. The chains attached to its flesh danced about as it approached the bedroom door.

Marcy shuddered as if she had been locked in a freezer. Her mind might not have been coherent enough to process fully what was going on, but she knew that whatever it was on the other side of that door was not human.

When she looked at the floor, she saw the shadows of a blade, chains, and…hooves? Her eyes grew large and her throat sucked its moisture dry. She could not recall the last time she had seen a horse, but she knew that hooves of that size were nothing short of impossible. Is this what Brady tried to warn her about?

Did I… make a mistake?

She raised her weapon up high, preparing herself to strike at any moment. The chains stopped dancing and the mist stood still. Seconds, then minutes passed by in which no one moved or made a single sound. She backed into the crease of the room and anticipated the attack, her heart nearly bursting out of her chest.

The walls then collapsed behind her and four skeletal arms extended from the rubble! Patches of burnt flesh clung desperately to the bones of which they were bind. Their claws, black and stained with blood, were larger than their tiny arms should have allowed.

Marcy barely had time to scream before she found herself caught in the clutches of the hands from hell. She screamed as she sank into the flaming abyss. No matter how hard she screamed, no one would ever hear her cries.

No one. Not even her.

Is it okay to request a title? (VX)

Hello all,

I am working on a mini project. The game is called "Gatekeeper" and all I really need is an eerie-looking door at the end of a dark hall. The door is partially opened, with alluring yet strange and scary blue light coming out of it. The title, "GATEKEEPER" (all caps) can be written up at the top in a gothic font (though I can do this myself, if that is a problem), and the rest of the background is pitch black. That's all, really.


I guess the closest thing to what I'm talking about would be sort of something like this...

Any help would be greatly appreciated, and of course you will get total credit. =)

From the creators of Persona comes... 'Catherine'.



I want to see some gameplay vids, but I *trust* Atlus. I don't own a PS3 yet, but I will certainly buy one for this game.

I wrote a *PROLOGUE*

In addition to what I do for a living (which is nothing important), I aspire to become a *serious* author. I wrote a lot during my college years, but those were just bullshit/for practice. I finished planning for a project that I intend to attempt to have published when it is done, but before I start that one, I want to start a ~*different*~ project as practice, and learn even more about the craft before I take on the REAL DEAL.

Anyway, I wrote this one on Wednesday. I'm trying to take my time with this project because if all goes well (God willin') I may try to get this one published too! ^_^
(/wishful thinking)

If you choose to read it, be as honest as you please, but keep it constructive!

> PROLOGUE <

It was a dark and quiet place. A stream of water rested over the marble surface, hidden underneath a thin layer of mist. The sky was an endless sheet of black, stretching high and wide across, not an object to be found in its darkness. The surface, a green crystal-like structure, provided some lighting, but it did not make navigation any less obscured for this place did not seem to have a clear beginning nor did it have a clear end.

A young man came to consciousness. He rose from the stream and searched the area with his eyes.
What is this place, he thought to himself. He opened his mouth to speak but could not make a sound. Perplexed, he held out his hands in front of him and indeed he could see the crystal surface right through them. They-like the rest of his body-lacked a true form. He was almost doll-like in that he had no features. He was a shapeless, colorless transparent mass, like the mist that swam through his feet.

The man began to walk forward. Isolated with nothing but his own thoughts, he began to question whether or not he was alive. He later tried to think about the chain of events prior to waking up in this vicinity. He then came to a halt as he reached a startling revelation. He did not possess any memories, not of himself or of the life he lived. His mind was every bit as bare as the featureless body he currently occupied.

"My child." A prodigious voice called out from above.

The voice was warm and inviting yet firm. There was a parental, if supernatural texture in its tone but it was difficult to identify its exact gender. Was it a man or a woman? Perhaps it was both? The man attempted to follow the direction of the voice. He did not know anything about it but he strangely felt as if he had heard it before. He knew he could trust it.

"We have been separated for far too long," called the voice. "and as much as I wish to welcome you back to the kingdom, your journey is not yet completed. You were transformed into an image not of my own and forced to commit deeds that contradicted the path that I had set for you. So, I want to give you the opportunity to change it all. To reshape the world into what it was meant to be. What I intended it to be.

"Come forth, young one. Find the golden tree and reenter the world of the living."

The voice disappeared but the man continued to press forward. Minutes turned into hours and hours turned into what felt like days and yet the scenery remained the same. The man wondered if he had gotten lost and should turn around, or if he should forgo his search altogether.

"Are you lost?" asked a masculine yet youthful voice behind him.

He turned around and laid eyes upon a black humanlike figure. Like the young man himself, this gentleman too was featureless, but whereas the young man was white like the mist, this gentleman was like a shadow, blending in with the darkness that engulfed the area. He wore a red crown and held a blade enclosed in a scabbard in his right hand.

"If so, I think you and I should work together. This place is dangerous and to be frank, I don't think either one of us will stand a chance on our own. What is your name?"

But the young man could not answer him.

"…I see," the gentleman began. "Well in any case, it looks like you and I are heading in the same direction. Let's team up, if just a little while. What do you say?"

The young man was not in the position to neither accept nor reject his offer, and so the crowned gentleman invited himself on the man's expedition.

The twosome traveled for what felt like an eternity in silence, walking in the same direction. The crowned gentleman tried several times to converse with the young man but once it became apparent that the young man could not speak, he began to tell stories instead. Each story had a central theme; the oppressed raging war against whom they perceived to be their oppressors. The stories neither irritated nor intrigued the young man. In fact, he hardly paid any attention to the gentleman's ramblings, choosing to focus only on finding that tree.

"You know, you being here did not happen by accident." the gentleman started. "And I don't believe that us finding each other was an accident either. You're here because somewhere in your previous life, someone felt that you made a mistake and now they want you to correct that mistake. But don't you think it's unfair that you don't remember what that 'mistake' was?"

The young man stopped. The golden tree was within his grasp, sitting in its own private oasis. The tree glowed brightly and a bed of flowers circled around it. Each sparkle from the tree's light gave birth to a new flower once it touched the ground.

The young man approached the tree but his companion urged him to stop. The panic in his voice concerned the young man, so he did what he was told.

"Those branches are cursed. One touch and you might as well find yourself a nice pair of shackles. If you want to know who you are, who you really are, this is not the route to take."

The crowned gentleman walked to the young man and placed his hands over his triceps.

"I know a place of true power. Why serve in someone else's kingdom when you should be the one ruling it? Come with me. I can take you to the world of the living and we can transform it into a world of our liking."

The young man stood by the tree and contemplated over the gentleman's words. Indeed, he presented a stellar offer and his demeanor had been nothing but friendly. However, despite the young man's desire to travel with his companion still, he was far too frightened to go against the voice's instructions. He stood under the tree's branches and stared at the gentleman. He made his decision and the gentleman was forced to comply.

"Very well. I think you're making a huge mistake. I pray it won't be your undoing."

The crowned gentleman turned his back to the young man.

"Perhaps we'll meet again, should fate allow it."

He continued on his journey and soon he was gone. The young man reached for the branch above him and suddenly there was a blinding white light.
