So in the new update, Caliborn goes on about how Dirk banished his soul into Lil Cal, and how ARquiusprite showed up out of nowhere and ended up getting pulled along for the ride. And if you notice, HALF OF GAMZEE TOO.
This explains so much.
Why the game read Scratch’s sudden death as an opportunity to revive him into Lord English. (Caliborn) Why Lord English is so muscular. (Equius) Why Doc Scratch is so shrouded in mystery. (Equius) Why Doc Scratch and Lord English are so vastly intelligent, unlike Caliborn. (AR, a splinter of Dirk’s soul) Why Lord English is so mirthful and angry. (Gamzee) Why Lord English can destroy souls. (AR, a splinter of Dirk’s soul)
Lord English even stole his name from Jake English, who in turn got his name from his Grandma Jade English, who in turn stole it from Lord English. Paradox.
This is a project I had been working on and off for the longest time. It had been completed for a while now but I never got around to cleaning some of the files up and posting an official release. I showed it off and provided a download link on my twitch channel, but I think a tumblr post would better serve as the official download page for it.
The mod is a complete character edit for Candyman, changing him from the tap-dancing dandy to the
omniscient host Doc Scratch from Homestuck. The mod includes:
An edited spritesheet
New color palettes for the character (All 21 were replaced, including team colors)
New Felt theme UI
New menu music
New stage: Felt Manor (replaces Room 21)
All original track for the new stage
Candyball is now a cueball, complete with Green Sun effects
Original music commissioned by Whatthisissooutrageous a fellow Homestuck fan, I saw and listened to this piece he composed on his youtube channel and wanted more, so I reached out to him and asked if he could commission a similar piece for the mod.
I also reached out to another youtuber,
LordMegatronG1, a voice actor who likes to make Doc Scratch demos, he provided a soundbite for Doc’s victory quote. I wanted him to do more so all of Candyman’s voice audio was replaced, but unfortunately he had fallen upon hard times and could not record more despite his complete interest in being in the project.
All in all I had a blast doing this project, I had never committed to working on something like this before, and the feeling of completing it and sharing it with everyone is hard to top. If you’re a Lethal League fan or a Homestuck fan or both, I’m sure you can enjoy this in some way or another. Enjoy!
