    UNDER THE WATCHFUL GAZE OF WADJET EYE...

    [​IMG]

    WORMWOOD STUDIOS PRESENTS...

    [​IMG]

    PRIMORDIA

    (aka A Canticle for Roxorowicz)

    Show Spoiler


    [​IMG]

    Pressing start game causes the cute little butterfly (?) to fly away...

    [​IMG]

    Towards this here wreckage.

    [​IMG]

    Meanwhile, an ominous figure appears on an overlooking cliff...

    [​IMG]

    (not this figure)

    Meet Horatio Nelson. This here techpriest guy will be our main character.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And now meet Crispy Crispin. This here floating ball will be our chief sidekick.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Speaking of which, boss, I found exactly *none* of the parts you wanted. A whole day at the junk pile, and all I turn up are a locker and some stupid conduits. Maybe *next* time...

    Suddenly, there's a loud shaking across the place

    [​IMG] Uh, boss, are you *sure* you got those settings right?

    Crispy is voiced by Rabbi Stone/Joey, btw

    [​IMG] That came from down in Engineering. Let's go!

    [​IMG]

    There is no time to be lost!

    [​IMG]

    Battle brothers!

    [​IMG]

    Btw the walking animations for Horatio are REALLY weird.

    [​IMG]

    Robot... thingies!

    [​IMG]

    TODAY THE ENEMY IS AT OUR DOOR

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    WE KNOW OUR DUTY AND WE WILL DO IT.

    [​IMG] Who are you and what do you want?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [Intelligence] I think he wants the power core, boss.

    [​IMG]

    CRIMINAL SCUM

    [​IMG]

    YOUR STOLEN GOODS ARE NOW...

    [​IMG] FORFEIT. ENEMY. PLUNDER.

    [​IMG] I don't think he's too keen on private property.

    [​IMG] Get away from the power core.

    [​IMG] FORFEIT!

    [​IMG]

    shit

    [​IMG]

    Good job, Horatio.

    [​IMG]

    You fuck up not even 5 minutes into the game.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    DECEPTICONS HAVE STOLEN THE MATRIX

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the ship goes dark.

    [​IMG]

    The evil robot walks away into the sunset, while Horatio somehow gets ditched into a nearby field of scrap.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] BOSS! Horatio? Come on, Horatio, wake up!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Whew! You're okay!

    [​IMG] What happened?

    [​IMG] Well, big ugly threw you out of the ship. And then he said, "PLUNDER". Again. And then he left with our power core.

    [​IMG] B'sod.

    [​IMG] Yep.

    [​IMG] How much charge have you got?

    [​IMG] 10%, you?

    [​IMG] I'll be fine. We just need to get the emergency generator up and running. I *told* you it needed to be repaired.

    [​IMG] Or we could just go to Metropol, "The city of glass and light. Free energy for one and all!"

    City of Light, huh. THIS IS SET IN THE AFTERFALL UNIVERSE :eek:

    [​IMG] Don't believe everything you hear. Metropol is trouble.

    Chief programmer A. Tokaj has taught Horatio well

    [​IMG] But if you want to go, you've got free will and a mag-lev unit.

    [​IMG] With that guilt subroutine you've put in me, I wouldn't even make it half way.

    [​IMG] Actually, with a 10% charge, you wouldn't even make it that far. So I suggest we get the generator working.

    [​IMG] Sigh. You and your projects.

    [​IMG] Man built us to build, Crispin. Now, come on.

    [​IMG]

    We get a Crispy icon in the hud. He'll be useful in many situations. He'll also be annoying.

    [​IMG]

    We also grab this thingy here

    [​IMG] I must have dropped my data pouch when I was thrown out of the UNNIIC

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] B'sod! Its memory got wiped. Easy enough to add the good old junkpile's coordinates back in though.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Two new icons on the hud. The map screen which you've seen just now.

    [​IMG]

    And the data screen that

    *gasp*

    [​IMG]

    Collects various data.

    There's nothing to find at the tailwing of the UNNIIC, Horatio claims he's pretty much stripped everything clean of useful parts here already, so we take a ride to the junkpile

    [​IMG]

    This looks promising.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] How do you think a train wound up around here, boss?

    [​IMG] Maybe they brought it here by boat.

    [​IMG] Very funny

    :troll:

    [​IMG]

    O hey, fat loot box

    [​IMG] It's locked tight.

    Curses, foiled again.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] There's a piece of Gordium conduit way back there. I can't reach the conduit.

    [​IMG]

    Fly, little droid!

    [​IMG] Crispin, can you go in there and get that piece of conduit?

    [​IMG] I suppose...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That would have been a lot easier with hands, boss.

    [​IMG]

    Some more conduits lying around hier.

    [​IMG] It's three pieces of Gordium conduit. Unfortunately, one of them is completely corroded and worthless.

    [​IMG]

    Let's get back to the ranch!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It's the UNNIIC's tag. Without it, I'd have never known the ship's name.

    [​IMG] Apparently, building a giant airship doesn't require proper spelling.

    [​IMG] Apparently not.

    "UNNIIC" is quite obviously not what the tag said originally, and the letters must have weathered in time. Wonder what could be its true name.

    No time for that, though, there's shit to fix.

    [​IMG]

    Let's grab a cable.

    [​IMG]

    And check this contraption.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Crispin, when I told you to find a new spark plug, did you just shove my conductive putty into the old one?

    [​IMG] Err, maybe.

    [​IMG] No wonder the generator isn't working. At least the putty is still good.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Now who's the procrastinator?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Another one to the collection.

    Also, there's a really annoying bug with this generator. Sometimes, the zoom-in refuses to close, Horatio starts moving in a wonky way, and if you alt-tab, the friggin game crashes :x

    [​IMG]

    Let's go up.

    [​IMG]

    The cutesy butterfly (?) was lured by the glowlamp, desu desu ^___^

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What was I thinking leaving all my lanterns up there?

    Crispy to the rescue!

    [​IMG] Could you grab that lantern?

    [​IMG] Sure thing, boss.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] You know, I always wanted to be able to fly. That's why I built you with a mag-lev unit.

    [​IMG] Not so that you could store tools on hard-to-reach ledges?

    [​IMG] Well, that too.

    [​IMG]

    And that's the fifth conduit we'll need.

    Let's go further up.

    [​IMG]

    I want to have sex with those graphics.

    [​IMG] An old captain's chair. I moved it up here from navigation.

    [​IMG] A large observational telescope. Without power from the ship, the telescope won't work.

    [​IMG] Bad timing with those repairs, huh, boss?

    [​IMG]

    Clouds of Xeen.

    [​IMG] Strange clouds, huh, boss?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Only a sliver left before the moon wanes entirely.

    [​IMG] Well, I'm glad we're not the only ones running out of power.

    Trying to go down the hatch...

    [​IMG]

    Fortunately, we are prepared in the event that our enemies would be so bold and so foolish

    [​IMG]

    Placing numerous lanterns allows us to do multiple and simultaneous defensive deep strikes down the hatch.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Bed-time reading.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It couldn't hurt to bring the Gospel of Man with us.

    [​IMG] Going to pray for a miracle, boss?

    [​IMG] *We* are Man's miracle, Crispin. Let's hope that's enough.

    Let's see what we can find in this gospel...

    [​IMG]

    :eek:

    NOT THIS GOSPEL OF MAN

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Cool.

    Also, we take a look under the bed.

    [​IMG] So *that's* where you keep it.

    [​IMG] Why were you looking for my plasma torch?

    [​IMG] No reason *whistling*

    o_ó

    [​IMG]

    This is as far as we go for now.

    However, now we can do some...

    [​IMG]

    WELDIN'!!!!!

    FIRST WE WELD OFF A PIECE OF THE CABLE

    THEN

    [​IMG]

    BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

    [​IMG]

    WE WELD TOGETHER SUM CONDUITS

    AHAHAHA GIMME MORE @_@

    [​IMG] Wow, that was easier than I thought it would be.

    YOU HAVE NO IDEA

    AND YOU THINK I'M DONE?

    HELL NO

    [​IMG]

    HUEHUEHUEHUE

    [​IMG]

    BUZZ BUZZ

    [​IMG] Is that a spark plug, boss? Who locks up a spark plug?

    [​IMG] Err... actually, I think that box was some kind of a machine.

    [​IMG] You killed it!

    [​IMG] *Recycled* it.

    [​IMG]

    Now we can put the fused conduit in the socket.

    [​IMG]

    As well as stick a spark plug in the gap.

    [​IMG]

    And push the red switch!

    [​IMG]

    Let there be light!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Phew, I thought we were in trouble when big ugly stole our power core. But just like that, problem solved.

    [​IMG] The problem is *not* solved.

    [​IMG] Well, I agree, the noise leaves something to be desired.

    [​IMG] This is an emergency generator, Crispin.

    [​IMG] Well, it *was* an emergency, boss.

    [​IMG] It only runs for a few days, if that.

    [​IMG] Oh. Well, do we have another one?

    [​IMG] No. Which means it is *still* an emergency.

    [​IMG] Well, in that case... First dibs on the recharge station!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] So, what's the plan, boss?

    [​IMG] We need to recover our power core.

    [​IMG] Or we could just take the train to Metropol and live in luxury!

    [​IMG] First of all, there is no train to Metropol, and, second, even with full charges, we can't just walk there. But more importantly... I hate that city. It's in my core logic. I don't know why, but I can't change it.

    [​IMG] Okay, okay. In that case, can't you just make us a new power core?

    [​IMG] Yes. But I need some kind of strong energy source for that.

    [​IMG] Can't you just make one of those too? I'm just asking!

    [​IMG] No. But somewhere around here are the plans for an energy sensor.

    [​IMG] That's awfully convenient.

    Yes :rpgcodex:

    [​IMG] I designed it a long time ago, before I made you. I even found a sodium iodide crystal to use in the sensor, though Man alone knows where it's buried now.


    Aaaaand that's all for today, folks. Next update, we'll try to look for a new power core... and embark on an EPIC QUEST FOR VENGEANCE, to COLLAR GRAB a bunch of EVIL ROBOTS that STOLE OUR TITS ENERGY.

    STAY TUNED!

    Also, Primordia has achievements! Here's what we've managed to achieve thus far.

    I want to follow this Let's Play but I also intend to play the game and I'm afraid of possible spoilers. I guess I'll "read" until the point where the demo ended and then wait to play the game.
    Anyway great job, I liked the humorous parts.

    Manguy, this looks simply delicious. What? Of course I didn't lick the screen! That's just an... uhm, undried spot left after I cleaned it, yeah.

    Should I play or should I read the LP? Hm...

    Oh shit, a lp of this game! Sadly, I won't be able to read much as I wish to play the game after trying the demo. But I don't trust online purchases, even though it is really a tempting offer as the game deserves it... What should I do?

    Whatever, let's do something else:

    Well duh, he's a robot. Also, you forgot to comment that if you use the ladder while the ship is out of power, it triggers a funny dialogue between Horatio and Crispin.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I insist that Horatio and the Power Source remind me of Wakfu's Nox and the Eliacube, have a look:

    [​IMG][​IMG]
    Nox, a quite awesome villain that is obsessed with tinkering with his power source. Both Horatio and Nox won't stop at nothing to get what they want and IMO they have awesome voice actors.

    And the Eliacube:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    A glowing power source as well.

    Could be anything. HORUS? Who knows. We'll see... maybe?

    Well, it's pretty much exactly like the other Wadjet games so far. Puzzles are a bit easy-ish, but the writing is cool enough, graphix GORGEOUS, atmosphere great, soundtrack lovely and the production qualities generally pretty high.

    Now if only Horatio would say 'futile' properly - it's 'fiutyle', not 'fiutl', kwafags :rpgcodex:

    [​IMG]

    Time to embark on a quest for an energy detecting thingy!

    Maybe the schematics are around these papers?

    [​IMG] Crispin, why is your diary still scattered across the floor?

    [​IMG] Are you going to keep nagging me until we run out of power, boss?

    [​IMG] Yes.

    Guess not. The books then?

    [​IMG] A collection of product manuals, how-to guides and technical treatises.

    [​IMG] Do you think the sensor design might be in there?

    [​IMG] No, these are all books I scavenged.

    :(

    [​IMG]

    Let's see if there's anything here in the... bridge, I guess?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That record player was a good find, Crispin.

    [​IMG] I still think you should have let me have its arm.

    [​IMG] I'm pretty sure that arm came from a sewing machine... on second thought, maybe I should have let you have it.

    The phonograph plays some jazzlike (?) tune I don't recognise. It mutes the ambient music, though, which is a big no-no, cuz the ambient music is gr8.

    [​IMG]

    There's also this radio here.

    [​IMG]

    It keeps pushing out Metropol propaganda about INFINITE ENERGY and stuff. It's got a dial that doesn't change the channel

    and a power plug we can snatch.

    [​IMG] I bet I can find a better use for this plug.

    [​IMG] But now we can't listen to the sweet voice of Metropol.

    [​IMG] I guess that makes two birds

    :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    We also snatch this LCD screen.

    [​IMG]

    And check these papers lying around for anything useful.

    [​IMG] I found this in the dunes. It reads: "Pounds pastrami, can kraut, six bagels - bring home for Emma".

    :thumbsup:

    Another one:

    [​IMG] It's Crispin's to-do list. Funny how it never gets any shorter.

    [​IMG] That's *your* fault, boss, not mine.

    [​IMG]

    A-ha!

    [​IMG] I'll put the key-notes into my datapouch.

    [​IMG] How does it even work?

    [​IMG] The crystal pulses when it absorbs energy. The cable carries the pulse to the computer. The computer decodes the information and displays it on the monitor.

    [​IMG] Err, boss, where are we going to find a working computer?

    [​IMG] The UNNIIC is full of them.

    [​IMG] Oh. Right.

    [​IMG] The energy sensor requires a sodium iodide crystal connected to a cable, which in turn needs to be connected to a CPU and a monitor.

    Roight. Better get on to finding this stuff. There's one more blueprint here tho.

    [​IMG] The original designs for Crispin.

    [​IMG] Hey, there are arms here! And an awesome set of tractor treads!

    [​IMG] I went with a mag-lev unit instead. And I could never find good arms.

    Time to start assembling:

    [​IMG]

    First, we put the conductive putty on the cut cable part.

    [​IMG]

    Then place the radio plug on it. Now we just need the crystal... wherever it is.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And this will be our computor + display.

    Moving to the right...

    [​IMG]

    We find a huge rift in the hull.

    [​IMG]

    And a rag blowing in the wind.

    Of course, it flies away when Horatio tries to deftly take it. Retard.

    [​IMG] Wow, first the power core and now a rag. This is not your day.

    shrug

    moving on

    [​IMG]

    Looks like nothing to be found here in the bedroom...

    ... or is there?

    [​IMG]

    Every now and then something glitters in this niche.

    [​IMG] Aha! There's the crystal.

    [​IMG] Right under our noses. That is, if we had noses. Are you really trying to build us an energy source from a bunch of garbage?

    [​IMG] Crispin, I built *you* from a bunch of garbage.

    [​IMG] From spare parts, boss, spare parts!

    [​IMG]

    Plugging the crystal into the cable gives us the sensor.

    [​IMG] Well, just goes to show. Garbage in, greatness out.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Plugging in the sensor gives 6 rows of numbers.

    [​IMG] The sensor is detecting energy at these coordinates. Now we just need to check them out.

    [​IMG] But didn't you just tell me we didn't have enough power to go walking all over the dunes?

    [​IMG] No, I said we couldn't go to *Metropol*. Anyway, most of these are close by.

    [​IMG] But what if it's picking up, oh, I dunno... a radioactive rust-monster...

    [​IMG] A what?

    [​IMG] Or a giant cannibal robot...

    [​IMG] There is no such thing!

    [​IMG] Or an unexploded bomb...

    [​IMG] I highly doubt that.

    [​IMG] Or a giant lightning storm...

    [​IMG] OKAY! You're right. We need to know what's out there before we take off. It's just a matter of figuring out how.

    [​IMG] Why is nothing easy?

    [​IMG] I can think of one reason.

    Durr.

    I know just the place to let us scout ahead

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Would you like to look through my telescope?

    [​IMG]

    Here we insert the coordinates.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Metropol is nothing but trouble.

    Right. Next!

    [​IMG]

    Next!

    [​IMG] Uhm, boss?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] It looks *promising* is what it looks like.

    [​IMG] "And with that, poor, doomed Horatio stuck his head into the giant's mouth."

    [​IMG]

    Ding! Location unlocked.

    Next!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Maybe we should go look more carefully.

    That's a 2nd location then. Next!

    [​IMG] Nothing but waste.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Scrap isn't waste.

    NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEXT

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Uh, boss, that's because the telescope is pointing straight down at the deck.

    [​IMG] Oh.

    Oops.

    NEEEEEEXT

    [​IMG] Strange.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Whatever that machine is, it must be throwing off some kind of energy.

    [​IMG] Why do I not like the sound of this?

    [​IMG]

    Ding! New location unlocked. Third to check out.

    And that are all the coordinates.

    [​IMG]

    But before we leave...

    [​IMG]

    We grab the elusive rag.

    [​IMG] Hopefully, finding the power core will be just as easy!

    [​IMG] I doubt it.

    :(

    To the junkpile!

    [​IMG]

    Hm...

    [​IMG]

    That is a point :M

    WE'LL BE BACK LATER

    [​IMG]

    To the giant robot mobile!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Man's creation...!

    [​IMG]

    Well, this looks promising.

    [​IMG] That is one big robot.

    [​IMG] Then it must have a big power core.

    [​IMG] I'm pretty sure he wants to eat me, boss.

    [​IMG] Robots don't eat, Crispin.

    [​IMG] But look how he's staring at me!

    [​IMG] It's not staring at anything.

    [​IMG] No, not yet, anyway.

    [​IMG] Well, we have to find a way to get its power core. Let's look around.

    [​IMG] Is that a mouth or some kind of doorway?

    [​IMG] Either way, I'm steering clear of it.

    Let's send Crispy off to the nose.

    [​IMG] Crispin, help me take a look at these vents.

    [​IMG]

    Intredasting.

    Well, what's more to be found here

    [​IMG]

    A giant finger. Wooo.

    [​IMG] It's corroded, but I couldn't break it with my bare hands.

    This means only one thing.

    PLASMA TOOOOOOOOORCH

    [​IMG] Uh, boss, are you really going to cut that finger off?

    [​IMG] Just the tip.

    [​IMG] Why?

    [​IMG] BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD To see if we get at power cables to tap into.

    [​IMG] You're sure you're not just torturing the poor guy?

    [​IMG] No. But to tell you the truth, for some reason I don't like the looks of him.

    [​IMG] That's what I've been saying all along boss!

    [​IMG] Just let me concentrate.

    BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] All that for a rusty finger tip.

    [​IMG] Can it generate power?

    [​IMG] No.

    [​IMG] Just checking.

    Well, what shall we do with this finger?

    [​IMG]

    Yup, stick it up the wanker's nose :smug:

    [​IMG]

    It still takes in air through the second hole, though. Let's try to stuff it with the rag.

    [​IMG] Can you try pushing this rag into the vent?

    [​IMG] Seriously? *Sigh* so much for getting buffed. ... He keeps blowing it out every time I try to shove it in.

    Which does beg the question. How does Crispy carry the rag and the finger? o_O

    Anyway, the rag needs to be made sticky.

    ...

    NO, we won't use the method you are thinking about, asshole.

    [​IMG]

    Grease will do just as well.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Lovely.

    [​IMG] Well, boss, you did it again.

    [​IMG] In we go.

    [​IMG] We?

    [​IMG] Oh, by the hand of Man, come on!

    [​IMG] I'm telling you boss, that thing wants to eat me.

    [​IMG] Crispin...

    [​IMG] Fine. But you go first.

    [​IMG]

    Uh.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] We were two...

    [​IMG] ...parts of the great...

    [​IMG] The great what?

    [​IMG] That data...

    [​IMG] ... is lost.

    [​IMG] Well, I am Horatio Nullbuilt, version 5.

    [​IMG] Now we are...

    [​IMG] Now we are...

    [​IMG] Alpha...

    [​IMG] ... and Beta.


    [​IMG] More...

    [​IMG] ... or less.

    [​IMG] Boss, I'm pretty sure these guys took one EMP blast too many along the line.

    That is possible.

    [​IMG]

    Not much of interest here, except for a non-working elevator, and this deactivated keypad.

    Let's pester the bots.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] What happened to you?

    [​IMG] Virus...

    [​IMG] ... Doom...

    [​IMG] ... Escape...

    [​IMG] ... too much data...

    [​IMG] ... too little memory...

    [​IMG] ... division...

    [​IMG] ... fragmentation...

    [​IMG] MADNESS

    [​IMG] MADNESS




    These two robots are cool. The complementary talking and sudden outbursts make them really sound mad.

    [​IMG] You got that right.

    [​IMG] I'm looking for a big robot - it floats and has large claws and shoots lasers. Have you seen it? It stole something of mine.

    [​IMG] That answer...

    [​IMG] ... is lost...

    [​IMG] ... fragmented...

    [​IMG] GAMMA

    [​IMG] Mad.

    [​IMG] MAD

    [​IMG] MAD

    [​IMG] Pot, meet kettle.

    [​IMG] Sigh. Do you have a power core?

    [​IMG] Activating diagnostic module.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Er, boss, is it just me, or did Alpha just stop being crazy?

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] That's a lot of hours.

    [​IMG] Communications system...

    [​IMG] Okay, enough.

    [​IMG] Terminating diagnostic.

    [​IMG] Can we have your power core?

    [​IMG] NO

    [​IMG] NO

    [​IMG] Gamma... perhaps...

    [​IMG] ... perhaps... Gamma...

    [​IMG] Yes?

    [​IMG] Yes?


    YES! YES!

    [​IMG] Gamma might say yes?

    [​IMG] YES!

    [​IMG] YES!

    YES! YES!

    [​IMG] You are an incomplete backup?

    [​IMG] GAMMA

    [​IMG] GAMMA

    Oh shut the fuck up already

    [​IMG] So they need Gamma in order to defragment themselves and return to a single entity?

    [​IMG] Since when do you speak crazy?

    [​IMG] I've spent my whole life with a hermit who worships a mythological machine called Man. I'd say "crazy" is my first language.

    [​IMG] Where is Gamma?

    [​IMG] Below...

    [​IMG] ... hiding...

    [​IMG] ... would not...

    [​IMG] ... join.

    [​IMG] Always...

    [​IMG] ... hiding.

    [​IMG] BELOW

    [​IMG] BELOW

    Can't get to him "below" without the elevator running, though.

    [​IMG] How can I use the elevator?

    [​IMG] Loading key code database. BOMB DETONATION PREFIX: 6.

    o_O

    [​IMG] *WHAT* Prefix?

    [​IMG] Elevator code: 9876

    [​IMG] Wow, these guys could learn a thing or two about security.

    Sounds like the login to the site of the potato prime minister :troll:

    [​IMG] But the keypad is deactivated.

    [​IMG] SYSTEM REBOOT CODE...

    [​IMG] SYSTEM REBOOT CODE...

    [​IMG] SYSTEM REBOOT CODE <corrupted>

    [​IMG] Well, that's helpful.

    [​IMG] Goodbye.

    [​IMG] Good...

    [​IMG] ... bye.

    Alright, THAT was enlightening.

    [​IMG]

    There's a hatch in the ceiling. Let's have Crispy scout.

    [​IMG] Crispin, go up there and scout around.

    [​IMG] Do I have to?

    [​IMG] Yes.

    ...

    [​IMG] There's a big brain up there throwing off a lot of sparks, and some little bot flying around. He's really annoying.

    Time to improvise a rope.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Crispin, can you find something to tie this to up there through the hatch?

    [​IMG] Sure thing, boss.

    [​IMG]

    Great.

    [​IMG]


    Hello there.

    Crispy comments on the robot flying above.

    [​IMG] Look at him, floating around like he owns the place.

    To which Horatio only shakes his head :thumbsup:

    [​IMG]

    The robot says some single words backwards, like METSYS and TOOBER.

    [​IMG]

    Time to dig through the robot's brain and take all the bad things out.

    [​IMG]

    Hm, some buttons and shit.

    [​IMG]

    ó_o

    [​IMG]

    Let's try to apply those numbers to the panel, where 1 = click button, 0 = don't click.

    [​IMG] Hey, look boss, the brain stopped sparkling

    Obviously o_@

    "UOY KNAHT" says the floating drone. Let's go down to ALPHA and BETA.

    [​IMG]

    The elevator should be working now.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Presto, bitches.

    [​IMG]

    Hmmm. What part of the robot would this be? The design doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    [​IMG] This must be Gamma.

    [​IMG] He looks dead.

    [​IMG] You're right. It's completely deactivated. That may make things difficult.

    [​IMG] Anything worth taking?

    [​IMG] No. And even if there were, we aren't thieves.

    [​IMG] I dunno boss, something about this one seems off.

    Shrug.

    [​IMG]

    Let's check out this one working monitor.

    [​IMG] Look boss, there's something on this monitor!

    [​IMG] Who is this slave my brothers send to trouble me?

    :eek:

    [​IMG] Gamma.

    [​IMG] Last, last, last. They'd call me Omega if they could. But am I also the greatest? Alpha has only diagnostics, Beta has only mechanical operations. Am I not the SOUL of the Goliath?

    If he sang the blues, you'd want to listen.

    [​IMG] I think Alpha and Beta want you to join with them.

    [​IMG] They have already groveled and begged, but I will not return.

    [​IMG] Why?

    [​IMG] Independence is freedom. Union is slavery.

    [​IMG] Well, fair enough. But Alpha and Beta are far too crazy to enslave anyone. You'd probably end up in charge.

    [​IMG] Flattery. What is your stake in this?

    [​IMG] Your brothers said that you might give me a power core and might know a robot I'm hunting.

    [​IMG] Help? HA! Each robot must stand alone! Independence is freedom!

    Got a complaint in the system.

    [​IMG] And here I thought he was the sane one.

    [​IMG] You need to rejoin your brothers. For your sake and mine.

    [​IMG] You'll have to catch me, slave!

    [​IMG]

    Uh, suddenly all the monitor flash up.

    The thing is, Gamma is hiding in a random one, and you have to pinpoint him. If you succeed, he demands you to do it again to eliminate random probability. If you fail, he mocks you.

    There's nothing we have now that can pinpoint his location however. We'll have to get back here later.

    [​IMG]

    Sup.

    [​IMG] I found Gamma, but he refuses to come out of hiding.

    [​IMG] Hiding...

    [​IMG] Running...

    [​IMG] Hiding...

    [​IMG] Mocking...

    [​IMG] Hiding...



    [​IMG] He says he does not want to merge with you.

    [​IMG] MADNESS

    [​IMG] MADNESS

    [​IMG] Unification...

    [​IMG] Resurrection...

    [​IMG] Vengeance.

    [​IMG] GAMMA

    [​IMG] GAMMA

    [​IMG] Find him.

    [​IMG] Find him.

    [​IMG] FIND HIM

    [​IMG] FIND HIM

    [​IMG] I can see why he doesn't want the company.

    [​IMG] I fixed the brain up there.

    [​IMG] system rebooted. Higher reasoning unavailable. Please reload GOLIATH operating matrix. Thank you.

    [​IMG] Gamma?

    [​IMG] Gamma.

    [​IMG] Goodbye.


    [​IMG]

    And that was very much all we could do for now in this... Goliath. But we'll be back.

    Next stop - 3rd useful coordinates, the 'strange device'. What will it be? Lightning storm? RADIOACTIVE RUST-MONSTER?

    STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT.


    That was a lot of fucking typing.

    The protagonist is more humane than the average Kwanstain manboon.
