So I’m playing Ib for the trillionth time, and each time I play, I notice something new that occurs if you backtrack quite often.
Not sure if a post has been done on this before, but I mean… Why not?
If you go back through the whole museum as soon as Garry is added to your party:
Added dialogue for Liars Room, hide and seek room, and you can now get sassed out by that friggen ant. He will also be slapped by the naked lady painting. It made me laugh, and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s just the thought of Garry being like “lol bewbs.”
Also, read all of the artwork in case you get the black key during the second playthrough. (I highly recommend it. More Garry action!) Most paintings have extra Garry dialogue. Psst more Garry = win/win situation.
If you go back as far as possible as soon as Mary joins your party:
You now cannot look through the mirror. As if Mary didn’t mess up enough, now she cuts you off from Garrys’ face. I was so pissedu.
New conversation about the porno book. This also made me laugh. Probably because such similar situations have happened to me in the past. Cries.
If you also backtrack after the lights turn off on Mary and Ib right before “Separation”, you get new descriptions for what is inside the art boxes. It makes it all nice’n creepy.
Yey well that’s just what I found tonight, and I felt the need to make a post about it. XD But really, the little details added here and there in games like this, are what makes them so enjoyable to play again and again.
What happens to a video game that never gets played? Does the Hero ever fight the Villain, save the Princess or bring balance to the kingdom? THE FORGOTTEN PIXELS tells the story of a famous 80’s gaming hero, Valden, who lives inside of a video game cartridge that has never been played. Having never left the First Level, (or even knowing that he is inside of a video game to begin with) he has been unable to journey into the vast kingdom to fulfill his programmed destiny. But because of his absence, strange things have been happening to the kingdom and to the game itself! Valden begins his journey, along with his new companions and friends, to explore the kingdom and become the Hero he was always meant to be!
So I always told myself I would make a tumblr, but it never happened until now. So I guess I should make my first post about the thing that finally motivated me to do it. And that would be a project I am excited about:
It’s an animated series that follows the hero of a 80’s video game cartridge that has never been played. I think it’s a very cool concept full of potential (and I am not just saying that because I worked on the project as well :p), so head over to our kickstarter and check it out! It would make my day! :D
