A Train Trip Gone Way To Far

Postby Rendez » Tue Jul 15, 2008 12:28 am

Yes im making a new game called A Train Trip Gone Way To Far. Im a newbie right now and i plan to do revisions on them. Check spelling and add more challenges. I would use pro if it wasnt FREAKING $40. WHY $40 bucks? Is it really that valueable? ANYWAY the game is going good and they one day lower prices i might make better than towel slapped piece of s**t.

PLOT

You are on a Train to Las Vegas to go back home to your wife and kids but your train is suddenly stalked by a sniper and a bomb was planted on your train. you must guide your way out of the train and save...yourself! Escape alive in all means possible. Your task:
Eliminate the sniper
Collect all evidence or objects you can find
Get out alive

Because you play the role of Anthoney B. Jones, a detective and FBI agent.

And I have read it. Pretty much sums up the entire mess the game is.
You are the first to ever complain about the price of QDK Pro. Why is this? Can't you afford 40 bucks? Or did you spend the last $40 on a WoW gamecard so you can go raid with the rest of your lifeless friends. And even if you had the money to buy QDK Pro, I seriously doubt you would be able to make anything better than the "towel slapping piece of s**t" your game already is.

Thana.

Hey! I play WOW!

But yes, a craftsmen will always blame his tools. Rendez will blame quest...

I play WoW myself :) Damn good game.

And yes, $40 is way too expensive for Quest. In fact, considering Quest’s standing in the IF community, I’d say any money was too much for it. Why pay $40 for Quest when you can get the technically superior Inform 7 for free?

Because monkeys fly and pigs hurl lumps of poo at passing civilians.

I hate inform, I tried it out for a while and found it horriable to work with. Quest is much more flexable.

Hence the reason why there are so many great games written with Quest and so few with Inform.

Er...

Flexible? In what way is Quest more flexible than Inform?

Thanatos,
I'm sure Rendez's game was as bad as it sounds but really, you sounded pretty harsh. It's like, "hi guys, I'm new, play my game"... You respond, "Eat my ****, you groveling dustmite" [exaggeration added for humorous touch :D ]

It's interesting that Inform 7 was brought up. I just looked at that a few days ago. I don't have time to make any game these days but it crossed my mind and I had considered it. As far as the cost of Quest. $40 is up there but I have made the "complaint" before that I am not interested in buying it until it has a free standing player. I would want to email an .exe file to a friend who does not have or has not heard of Quest and be able to say, "hey buddy, open this file and play my game".... as opposed to "hey buddy, go to axeuk.com and download Quest and install it and once you do that, open my game file with Quest so you can play it". It's just too much to say! :mrgreen:
If I had money to throw out, I would probably send a few bucks to Alex just for the effort....but I don't have that money to throw out. So I'm done walking down that rabbit trail for now...

I haven't tried out WoW yet! Surprising, ain't it!?
