OFF my Mortis Ghost thread. I'm amazed this game doesn't get more love here. It's probably the second-best RPG Maker game (after Yume Nikki, of course). And it's also a highly surreal, moving, and original experience.

Played this one awhile ago.

While I wouldn't exactly agree with you about it being the second-best RPG maker game, I'd certainly say it was one of the better ones.

I like how it didn't only feel surreal and atmospheric, but it felt like the game's world had its own set of rules logic in certain regards. The soundtrack was pretty neat as well.

Anyway, here's a download link for those interested:

What would you say is the second-best RPG Maker game?

 No.1523

>>1519

Hmm… my #1 RPG maker game would probably be either Yume Nikki or Corpse Party -Rebuilt- (a fan-remake of the original, PC-98 Corpse Party), so unless I decided to consider them tied for first place, I guess my second best could be considered one of those.

Corpse Party Rebuilt can be found here, for anyone interested:

http://www.memoriesoffear.com/games_corpsepartypc98/index.html

Another one that was pretty good is Dhux's Scar. That one's a more of a traditional RPG in its gameplay, though its cast and gameplay are notably different in a few ways, such as its main character, who's a weak merchant who needs to use items to fight reliably, and also comes off as a greedy jerk at times. The plot was also fairly interesting, if a little odd at points.

Here's a link for Dhux's Scar, if you're curious:

I wouldn't consider Off worse than any of those games I mentioned though; they're all kinda different in some notable ways, so I'd think a lot of it comes down to preference.

It's some issue with the game file itself. If you zoom in on the screenshots both I and the TC posted, you'll notice we had the same issue.

Well, what I saw while playing was both the text looking somewhat blocky and the spacing being odd (such as with the "I'd" and "me" in my screenshot).

If what you have is different though, how about you provide a screenshot so I could see what it is?

 No.1536

Try finding the font in the game files and replacing it with a more readable one? When I played it the font was incredibly difficult to read but I was lazy and just bore through it.

So I just finished this and… WHAT DOES IT MEAN? Huge pile of spoilers ahead

So basically you start by killing the three guardians that are apparently nice to Hugo but the batter sees them as evil? I think they are 1) Hugo's imaginary friends that he invented while he was isolated 2) Aspects of the Queen (aka Vader Eloha aka the mother and wife) and killing them represents The Batter's road to justifying her murder or 3) family friends that The Batter maybe became jealous of, because Hugo preferred them over his own father. All the specters are simply incarnations of what The Batter feels is wrong with his family. So anyway the story is basically just a big metaphor for The Batter going full murder-suicide on his family. THIS IS TOO DEPRESSING. PLEASE TELL ME I'M WRONG. I was expecting some kind of closure or redemption for The Batter with that true ending but got monkeys instead :(

 No.2219

>>2218
Oh yeah wanna add- (words words to avoid spoilers on the front page words words)

The Judge represents the level of conviction The Batter feels toward accomplishing his murder-suicide. The final decision you make is a matter of whether you decide to follow through with the suicide part, and end all existence for yourself (turn your life OFF) or continue on your pitiful existence without your wife and child. Seeing as The Judge changes his feelings about The Batter's mission at the last second, The Batter himself regrets what he's done. Maybe The Batter doesn't even exactly represent the man who carried out the murder-suicide but is an aspect of his psyche just the same as The Judge

Anyway this game is great and I'd love to hear more thoughts on it

>>2219
Well, I've always thought about other stuff/ theories (Theory time, here we go!)

1- The guardians, Queen, Hugo and co. are all dead, actually, except for the Batter, which is trying to forget about them, since there is not anything to live for now. Maybe he's even on a coma, considering the game over theme (Stay in your coma). It not only explains the ghosts (sceptres) appearing everywhere, but also explains why the Queen and Hugo disappear when defeated/killed. The Elsens are how The Batter viewed his workplace, and are people he barely knew before the incident that possibly took their lives. This also explains their weird ways of living, the burnt/fired forms (work-related stress) and why they all look the same. Zacharie/Zachary could be how he views himself, or how his mind sees it as a game, or something that techinically does not exist. The guardians could have been people/bosses he knew, that could've been dead. Somehow, this makes everything about them a little more disturbing than they are. The reason why The Batter is well, The Batter, is because the man loves baseball, which also explains why the world map is somewhat shaped like a baseball field. The Judge/ Pablo could be a part of him that does not want to "let go" or that is so used to their presence that he does not believe they aren't actually real. It also explains why The Batter is the Purifier… I could be wrong, though.

2- What guarantees you, that when choosing the Judge's ending that he is right? What guarantees you that The Batter wasn't right and that he was evil? Was The Batter's murder of Hugo a way of freeing him, since he was left alone on a cold room, dying of what seems to be an illness (Well that is how I see it.)? You know what? I love this game like I love Yume Nikki. It has atmosphere, memorable characters, and leaves you to ask a plethora of questions afterwards and make a bunch of theories.

 No.2223

>>2218
Didn't it imply very strongly that the guardians were nice at first but became corrupt? I don't know, the game seems pretty straight forward.
The Batter believed the world to be impure, so he decided to destroy it.
I wish the spectres were explained, though. I think there was, in one of the books in the library, a line about how the Queen sent the ghosts to destroy her own land? So that's another reason why the batter would kill her.

>>2223
Are you thinking of this when you say that?

If you overlay all the unreadable texts they make a readable document about the guardians and the queen. Because based on this it only mentions Japhet being good natured then "souring" as seen in the game. I believe all three guardians have some form of goodness in them (even Dedan in some way)

I always took the game to relate that Hugo was one one in the coma and that at the "Batter end" Batter (as his father) after going through/defeating his wife (he may or may not have literally killed her) shut off his son's life support. Though how all of that relates to the guardians I haven't quite worked that out yet.

 No.2225

>>2223
I think the game takes place in Hugo's imaginary world and the people all represent Hugo's personality. When we get to the room, for a while The Batter steps into the shoes of Hugo and that's why they're nice then, because that's the way Hugo sees them. Like >>2224 said I think Japhet was the only one that changed, or at least Hugo and/or The Batter's perception of him changed

hipster as fuuuck


But seriously, if other people have that much of an effect on your enjoyment of something, then you really need to take a step back. If it means so much to you, then why don't you try improving the quality of discussion?

Oh, right, it's better to just start up with "wahhh all you other people who like it now have ruined it for everyone" because that certainly makes for some high-quality discussions.

Face it, when something is put on the Internet where anyone with a computer can see it, then it may become popular. Not everyone is going to have the most intelligent or thought-provoking contributions, but to be fair, it's not like your complaints are improving things in the slightest. If other people have that much of an effect on what you like, then try being productive instead of derailing conversations with your whining.

What effort are you talking about? Did you yourself personally contribute something that went into making Off? [Basically, I don't see how being a fan of something requires any effort or some sort of reward for liking it before other people.]

And despite what you seem to believe, people don't usually shy away from something because of stupid fans. The reason why Off is so popular is because people play it, like it, and then tell others to play it. That might draw in some idiots, true. But I've seen the game mentioned in various places online. It's always been "wow this game is great/cool/crazy/&c., you should check it out"; not once have I seen "the people who like this game are dumb, never play it". If something really is worth checking out, then it will be judged on its own merits and not by the people who talk about it.

I think you are simply wrong and that kind of thinking only causes drama when we could be just liking the game together. Sure, there are probably people who have decided to play this game because they saw a picture on tumblr or something, but if they went to play it and enjoyed it and decided to make fanart of it and post it on their own tumblr or just talk about it or whatever else does not make them inferior fans to you.

it's just gotten super popular at the moment because people in the Homestuck fandom have nothing better to be doing this summer since Hussie stopped updating. If this means I can get more art of OFF then cool, I don't care who's into this game, I really really don't.

This discussion is just as bad as the shitposters on tumblr. Those sorts of people move onto other stuff eventually. It's pointless to complain. Yeah, a lot of people(including myself) think all the yaoi shit is stupid and degrading to a stylish and interesting game, but bitching about dumbasses over actually discussing the game just puts you on the same level of stupid.

On another note, I think OFF and Yume Nikki are great for different reasons.

I enjoy browsing the OFF tag on tumblr for new art, occasional game theories, and funnies so I really haven't seen much of the "bad side" except for the shipping, but that's almost inescapable because it's the internet and you can't stop people from doing anything. Still it's not that hard to ignore these things if it bothers you that much.

All fanbases have stupid fans in them somewhere why would OFF be any different?

Regardless this thread wasn't made to bicker about Tumblr in, it was made to discuss OFF the game made by Mortis Ghost and it's sad seeing the thread degenerate into what it is.

Let's put this back on rails.
(I drew it. I was bored. Yeah, it sucks.)

There was this theory that says that the Judge is actually an anthrozoomorphization (sp?) of The Batter's schizophrenia. Naturally, goes hand-on-hand with the whole thing about the whole thing being a hallucination too.

I found this post, which shows a thing on phrases (mostly a mistranslation).
Now this changes so much things, answers some things, confuses the hell out of me and opens a heapload more of questions that I am not even kidding.

Such as holy hell, if The Batter and The Queen ain't human, then what they are? Also headcanon: The Batter may be one of the Elsen. Or the Elsen are based on him. The Bad Batter may be nothing more or less than his burnt form. Just compare them burnts (Pastel and Calvary) to the Bad Batter.
But goddamn, I am pouring way too many thoughts on a single game maybe?

 No.2404

Wow, that is very interesting. Definitely changes my interpretation of the game somewhat. Gotta say, I'm pretty curious to see what new theories people will come up with now that that particular mistranslation has been brought up.

As for 2.1 Mordis dug up some photoshop files for some game things and because of that it's easier to translate things like some books in the library (that had relevance to the story) due to the clearer picture. There's other reasons as well.

Fuckery is everywhere. You cannot escape them.

They can't be reasoned with.
They can't be bargained with.
They don't feel pity over your poor game, remorse over pairing two characters that just interacted or fear over your Ilovedthisgaemb4u attempt.

And they won't stop, EVER, until the fanbase is DEAD by EXCESS of FUCKERY.


I did this also. Doesn't contain fuckery, just my speculations over backstory.

For anyone too busy being butthurt over Tumblr to read that post from the main translator of the English version:
–English reconstructions of the various images in the game that couldn't be translated into French because they (like some of the zone 2 library books) were visually incomplete; they have access to the original photoshop files, the source texts, and the fonts and can faithfully recreate them in English
–An .exe to install the game and the font files
–"Properly looping sound files!"
–Not mentioned in the post, but hopefully some more bugfixes and translation error corrections

Getting those images translated is something I'm definitely looking forward to!

Idiocy and self-entitlement happened, that's why. That's the truth. It's funny to see people rage with Iluvdisthingb4usoimsuperiorfyi even if that is a retarded argument. Yes, this applies ever since that YN project showed its face.

And back to the fucking topic,
I find it funny that everyone goes like "HOLY SHIT" at the whale enemy in Zone 2, but forget about the Green dopefish in Zone 1 that is acessible by stepping on a circular pad at the Pentel Farms (the part where they explain about metal and you have to purify the barns)

i often wonder if mortis ghost was making reference to Dali's idea of baseball as a metaphor for life? Dali was going to do a segment for Fantasia using the baseball as metaphor concept, but it didnt quite get completed or make the cut for fantasia's initial release.

Oh, really? That is an interesting comparison to make.

Also another thing: I just realized yesterday at night that The Bad Batter may be not only a monster, but a fusion of the three zone bosses by their characteristics. Considering that the three Add-ons Seemingly disappear at the battle and it is implied that it may have fused ot something upon the fight, and that the three are linked to the guardians, it makes the Bad Batter's form make more sense: Huge hands/arms and large amounts of teeth with blank eyes for Dedan, avian-like shape (remember the end of Sugar's fight, where she compares the Batter to a ducky?) and even the pose, that somewhat resembles an open-winged bird. And size-changing (debatable)/agility stat for Enoch.

According to Mortis the Bad Batter is really just how the Judge sees him after what he's done. It's a cool aspect, I think; your opinion of a person and really change the way you view them. A person you hate would seem uglier than if you loved them.

 No.2557

>>2556
I considered that too. But look at his design, then at the post I made at >>2526. It certainly raises some very, very interesting implications.
A Not So Different (from the very same peeps he defeated) scenario in the Judge's eyes, perhaps? After all, he maybe knew of everyday's suffering, but never could have done a thing… Or maybe he could have done something, but never did for unknown reasons.

Also, there is another thing: What if our dear Batter wasn't even related to Hugo in the way we think?
And, if the Batter comes from Hugo's imagination, and considering that he's forgotten about, what if the whole Batter's mission is a bizarre metaphor for suicide?

So uh someone has started to make a fan sequel/spin-off for this game called Home. It takes place (at least based on what I've collected) in the reset world that takes place after the events of OFF and follows The Judge. Everything in the game is completely NOT canon when it comes to OFF.

Right now it's still in progress and at version .045 with a demo being out for bug testing. You can play up to finishing Zone 2 I think.

Info for it can be found here: http://felix0.tumblr.com/tagged/home-%28off-spinoff%29

and the current demo here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/15a0mmmkdtnnxg5/Home0.4.5.zip

I wasn't exactly sure where to put this so I'm posting it here. So far I'm really liking it. It feels a lot like how Space Funeral Earth Birth is to the original Space Funeral. Something familiar with something new to give us more of what we love.

Too bad it's still in the development stage. I'm always apprehensive about fan-projects without demos as development hell is always frequent.

And if anybody is curious about Home the creator's page changed. It's now: http://felix-the-judge.tumblr.com/tagged/home-%28off-spinoff%29

and is now up to version 0.7.3 which will take you as far as finishing Zone 3 and a short sneak peak into Zone 4

Not sure if this is even related to the game itself, but this and a few other RPG maker games have recently stopped working and spawn a bunch of error message pop ups instead. What's going on and how can I get around this?

Maybe that's what I get for trying to play at work, though.

I have no problems with RPGmaker and unless you have screencaps of the problem it's really hard to help you. Have you done anything different with them?


In other news there's like a dozen more like 5 OFF fangames popping out of the woodwork. At the moment only one of them is complete "Unknown" (I can't remember if Clueless is also finished it might be) and HOME's development is still in progress at the creator's new url: http://thejudge.tumblr.com/tagged/home-%28off-spinoff%29
