Alright, this has been out for over a year and a half and as far as I know only one person has gotten all 77 bees. That person did not say HOW he got all 77 bees. Help me out, tgchan.

I can get 74 bees, and have unlocked all six characters the game claims are unlockable. I suspect there is another character that you can unlock, as I can tell there must be a way to either jump extremely high or outright fly. The character that does this probably needs to be 1 block tall as well.

According to the author there are only two passwords at the start (one to activate the game, another to grant access to the santa hat) so that's not part of it.

...oh hey these are all first pages of chapters. I didn't notice while going through the archive strip by strip because it's not explicitly stated for most chapters. I probably should have tried the actual archive link first...

Anyway, numbered by chapter:
9,7,6,1
8,11,2
10,4,3,5

...starting to think the author was lying when he said there were no other passwords on the character selection screen. He lied about Trigona's dance doing nothing, after all.
>>
No. 28857 ID: b1b4f3

I figured it out! The only lie was that Trigona's dance does nothing. Here's the solution:
The number sequence gained via dancing in that room is a combination, but you don't input it in the cast page.
You input the combination via snuhbee, in the room only he can access.
It's the order of collecting the coins!

Hi;

We need to talk about this spoiler picture. Who is that ant? What is it doing? I don't know.

Well actually I do but a lot of people don't.

Do you think it's time for a more generic spoiler image that means nsfw quests / threads aren't just a field of embarrassed ants? Let me know if you do, and also put your own proposed spoiler images in this thread so the mods can see them.

thank

I still have the original SNES and play a few games once in a while... harvest moon for example.
For those unable to fetch one of those classic eddition consoles: you can buy the shell and a pi on amazon and set up an emulator on it. Advantage is a lower price and a higher amount of games. ^^

Well, that would depend on your definition of "dangerous."

Hi guys. I've been developing a game for the past year or so that seems to make people who play it statistically better winning Rock, Paper, Scissors.

On that silly merit alone, would it be worth it to you to play it/add it to your games shelf?
>>
No. 28534 ID: 3ce125

No. Also, give more details. "seems" to make people win more often at RPS? I guess I could believe it if the game was about reading faces or something.
>>
No. 28535 ID: b902bd

>>28534

I say seems because I don't think I've collected enough data properly quite yet, but the game rewards winning(and sometimes getting a tie, depending on the circumstance) in Rock, Paper, Scissors.
Having playtested my own game so many times with random groups, I've noticed over time that I'm losing less and less in Rock, Paper, Scissors. It's gotten to a point that in ten rounds, I'm only losing once or twice--reliably.
Even outside of in-game situations(I live in a country where people play RPS really often to decide a lot of little things. so I've had a lot of opportunities to play outside of my own game.)

While my game doesn't explicitly teach people to read people's faces or microexpressions(or whatever you'd call it), playing RPS is a commonly used mechanic throughout the game.

IRC is pretty easy, you fill out a couple of textboxes and you're in.

Go download hexchat, then once you have that pick rizon.net from the list of servers that comes up when you open it.
then you join the chatroom #tgchan and it's fine.

Alternatively, go to mibbit.com and do it from there. It's even easier but a bit less reliable.

Beyond Lunch is an RPG I worked on from 1998 until 2008, which took on three forms (Qbasic, Qbasic-but-better, and Rpgmaker2003).

I kinda? Want to stream these three versions, something I did once long ago to a smaller audience.

Nothing is set in stone and I might not actually end up doing it, but... consider this thread my official interest check in showing off this relic of my past.

Dear fellow posters of tgchan. There is a matter of grave importance I must bring to your attention. As some of you may or may not know, Americans do not celebrate one of the most important Christian holidays on the calendar. The holiday in question you may be asking, is in fact, Easter. More importantly, it has become apparent that through some strange turn of events, Americans are in fact completely unaware of this holiday. The exact reason behind this is largely unknown, despite the best efforts of many posters questioning Americans to determine how such a religiously Christian nation could completely abstain from such an important Christian holiday. It now appears that the only way in which we may shine light on this peculiar situation is to continue to question the Americans and raise awareness of their deficiency of Easter celebrations. To conclude this announcement, it is recommended that whenever you see an American on tgchan, remember to ask, “Why don’t Americans celebrate Easter?”

Also, here's fire punch, possibly the most metal manga ever after Berzerk.

The protagonist is a dude who's superpower is swift regeneration who got set on fire by another dude who's superpower is producing flames that don't go out unless he wills it.
As you can imagine, he's pretty fucking pissed about being on fire and vows to kill the guy who did it.

This is all set in a post-apocalyptic winter and it's a pretty fun ride!

Requiem Chevalier Vampire is the best comic I have read. It's French, but there are translations floating about.

It's about a Wehrmacht soldier from the Eastern front who enters as a vampire into a bizarre and inverted underworld where the most evil people in life were rewarded with power in the afterlife. A lot of real figures show up in the story re-imagined as characters.

It has enjoyable humour and aesthetics. Somewhat outdated 1990s edgy looking shit, but it has some cool designs also.

I'm getting salty now so I'm gonna take a step back, if I'm wrong yeah show me I'm wrong, but this is what I'm aware of about the situation and I'm not sure what reducing those regulations will ever accomplish towards fixing the broken economies of places with no industry to speak of.

>Even if every single person in wyoming voted for a single candidate, they would make up less than one fifth of one percent of the vote. So if they were stuck with the popular vote, their votes literally would not have mattered in any election in the history of the nation.
That is still something that applies to any small minority. For example, muslims are ~1% of the US population, so would they have a similar claim to having no political influence? (Or does government not have the power to set policy to their detriment?)

>It's really weird to me how the same people who championed the various 'occupy' movements and crowed about the 1% are suddenly pro-'rich get richer' when it comes to economic policies that are keeping THEM richer.
So you don't think Trump will make the rich richer with his proposed tax plan?

>Draft legislation aimed outside the college so it's good parts stick around and burn the rest of it out of our system like the parasitic entity it's become.

I agree entirely that the electoral college should be reformed.

>There you are sticking words in my mouth again. I'm saying don't drag our reasonably ok economies down to where yours are at because you're bitter the jobs in your area dried up.

I'm not sticking words on your mouth when you're the one saying them, Mr. 1%.

Why shouldn't the funds that were meant to help people through the recession gone to the people who were ACTUALLY suffering? That sort of shit is what I'm talking about. Not feeding funds that are supposed to be relief to the corporate interest groups in large, wealthy cities is not the same thing as 'dragging them down' to anyone else's level. You're just proving my point there; you piss and moan about the people who have more than you want to keep it for themselves, but fuck other people with less than you - their requests for help are just requests to drag you down to their level.

>and I'm not sure what reducing those regulations will ever accomplish towards fixing the broken economies of places with no industry to speak of.

Do you not understand that things like tariffs and restrictions on contracts for companies with non-domestic production are regulation, not deregulation? That's the platform that Trump ran on, not removing regulations. I'm kind of confused as to where you got the idea that I support a deregulated economy.

I think we might have had a bit of a misunderstanding on both ends, if I'm reading this right. I thought you were working off the "deregulating businesses will bring back jobs" argument, a common theme amongst the more extremist right-wing politicals and something I have personal beef with for being a very poor idea. That was a shitty assumption to make, sorry about that. I go on about not making snap judgements but it's a hard habit to train yourself out of.

Conversely, it seems you think I was arguing in favor of the very tax breaks I've been condemning. Stuff like the tax break you get for marriage, for example: That one is only really a big help to people who are already fairly wealthy with a lot of assets. It's things like that I am very much against, I would rather see meaningful tax breaks to people under the lower-middle class bracket. Even reducing the wage taxes on them by a quarter would do wonders for their purchasing power and the economy.


Other things I do want to see kept around, if modified: the idea of using Tax Breaks to encourage good corporate behaviour has, at best, been somewhat ineffective in my eyes. Creating a tax break for job creation, for example, just seems to result in a lot of cheap and shitty minimum wage jobs and reduces how much pull-in we get from those companies in tax revenue, further affecting our deficit and public works funding.

Instead, I'd like to see that become a legal requirement for companies breaching above a certain operational capacity. Perhaps they can maneuver around profit margin-based laws through clever accounting, but limiting the spread of these companies would serve a dual purpose: it would leave the door open for newer companies to sprout up (encouraging competition and diversity) an

>Muslims do not have their own governing body in the united states.
I concede that there is a point that anti-discrimination would be best handled on a constitutional or supreme court rather than executive level while you can't not 'discriminate' against states in the economic sense that a lot of federal money allocation is done by state. It still is the downside that the fact that the electoral college also effects social issues has contributed to the country's course towards making those "should be" constitutional and court protections farther from actual protections. Well, you have convinced me from being entirely against the electoral college to being ambivalent about it.

Aside from the existence of the electoral college overall, would you agree that it would be better to have electoral college votes just be decided by the people who vote for them rather than being an actual person who could change their mind? For example, I loathe Trump and think he will be awful for the country but still think it would have set a likely worse precedent for US democracy in the long run if the electors had voted in Clinton despite being voted otherwise.

>understanding why the DNC threw the country away running an unelectable candidate means you support trump!
I did misread your earlier post as being about presidential politics when it was more general, but since you bring it up now Clinton is overly pro-rich while being less pro-rich than Trunp (awful two party system and all that).
