So the guy who made Lisa just launched a kickstarter for his new game of the same name.http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/131274701/lisa-the-painful-rpg
So now lisa goes goyim
I cant wait to pay for this
>>2955>>2958>>2959>People don't deserve money for their work
Man, fuck all ya'll.
What exactly will the money be used for? It doesn't even say what the money will be used for on the kickstarter page.
Not that I would give any money, either way. Game seems pretty gay, to put it mildly.
>>2965>I've been able to create enough to start showing people, but progress has been extremely slow. It will take centuries to complete this project if I continue at a part-time pace. I will use the money from the Kickstarter to fund the game, so I can devote all my time into production. If funding goes over 100% I will devote just as much time to creating additional content and possibly bringing in more people to help with the completion and polish of the game. >>2963
This seems to be a trend for any game on any fundraising website it seems, even though it's like never the case.
Apparently wanting to see if enough people are interested in something you will make to dedicate months of you life into making it and making money from that thing that you created is a crime.
Remember the 'fraud' bullshit? The entitled NEET morons here wouldn't know the first thing about earning/making money.
You want money? Get a job.
Or make a game that is good enough, which is not very likely.
Seconded. You get an actual job or do some actual work to make money, like become an engineer, a doctor, or start an engineering business, etc. I don't consider making games or any form of entertainment an "actual job." Except for maybe the big companies, but I don't exactly consider them as really contributing anything substantial to society. I don't consider games to have any "worth" in the traditional sense. Only worth in the interpersonal sense. Just my thoughts.
sssh don't start a fire anon, we all can regret
Your thoughts are awful and you are an idiot.
You should sell your computer and go work in a sweatshop factory, then. If we followed your logic, the greatest contributors to any society are all those Chinese women working 18 hour shifts with no breaks. They're doing all the "actual" work, here.
Don't impose your own values on other people's hard work just because it's entertainment (which by the way is what makes the most money of any business. It is what societies revolve around). I don't understand the mindless hate people have for Kickstarter or basic profiting here. Is it just jealously because you're all jobless NEETS with no future?
It sucks to see all the morons/trolls in this thread.
Well sweatshop workers DO contribute a lot. Just way more than any one person should have to
I'd post the everyoneittistroll.jpg again but meh
My friend interviewed Dingaling sometime last year for a podcast we were going to do that got defunked before it started. Thought I would share it seeing as how it's more on topic than most of the posts in this thread. He alludes to this game as well as gives a bit of insight into Lisa The First.
Why did you choose an Earthbound-like aesthetic?
Earthbound is my favorite game, and no matter what I try to make I always look back to Earthbound. I love how Earthbound on the outside can appear charming and childlike, but there are moments that really make you feel weird. I love that.
Have you made any other games?
I made one game at this video game development camp I went to as a kid. It was Cowboys vs Aliens, an action shooter with a cowboy that did the splits to dodge lasers.
Do you have any future plans in making games?
I do, It's going to be a commercial RPG about the post apocolaplse. Since I plan to charge for the game I'm going to ensure the best quality that I am personally capable of.
(Again, feel free to skip these over.)
What was the significance of:
The white flowers?
The white flowers were just supposed to be a positive symbol, sometimes they would even guide you.
The giant hand giving the finger?
no significance what so ever. I should of made the rope even longer!!!
The Melody (Royal/Sireen's Call) in the start and end of the game?
The red mansion?
the Red mansion was supposed to represent her last defense, her strongest "happy place." In the end it didn't work just like everything else.
The plastic bottle in the red mansion?
The recurring picture of the shadowy figure with the red eyes?
The rest of these things I want in the game for a reason, I just didn't come up with an actually reason. I wanted to know how others interpreted them. The things I came up with that were concrete, I always tried to explain. Even if it took some digging.
Did you expect Lisa to grow in popularity like it is right now?
I didn't really think about it at first. Although, I am very surprised and grateful people are taking an interest, this makes me really want to strive much harder for my next game. So thank you, and everyone who gave the game a chance, whether you liked it or hated it, thank you!
That's all for now, thanks for your time!
Someone send this thread to the author so he gets ashamed of Ubuu
This is a hard working dude who strives to deliver a quality product and appears to have the skills to do so, but not the funds. I really hope he gets it.
>>2989>>I should have made the rope even longer!
Same. I wish the rope was twice as long, even.
How many Kickstarter campaigns release a demo?!
If that pink LISA shirt gets the vote, I will buy it, I swear to God.
he seems really nice and polite for someone who makes such… depressing games.
ah, if im allowed to theorize so early, did you notice that the thumbnail for the kickstarter video (pic related) seems to show the main character with what i'm assuming is lisa sleeping by a burned out campfire? the game makes it such a point there are no women in the world anymore, so it's definitely gotta be lisa.
there also seems to be an alternate costume (as an easter egg maybe) of brad armstrong, the protag, wearing marty-esque clothes.
I was a little unsure of it at first, though I'm getting rather interested now that he's been showing off more of the project alongside the launch of the kickstarter.
The demo definitely gave me similar vibes to both Earthbound and the first Lisa, while also seeming more polished, at least so far.>>3023
I'm guessing this picture's the marty-esque costume you meant, right? While it could be a costume, I got the impression it actually was Marty, since the hair and beard are more like Marty's than Brad's. Kind of hard to know for sure we only have a single image, though.
Actually I'm pretty sure that's the real Marty with a baby, probably Lisa as a baby or Lisa's baby…? There's also another little "avatar" of what I assume is Lisa but grown up a little.
What I meant was this. Really though, it's just the Hawaiian shirt that reminds me of Marty.
That was fast. Glad to see the game got funded, can't wait to play it!
Funded already holy shit.
Whooooa. Congrats, Dingaling.
Now I get to play the game within my lifetime.
Ah, I didn't make the connection before now, though looking at the two pictures side by side, I see what you mean now. He doesn't really look much like Marty aside from the shirt though, so I figure that'd be a reference at most, though I could be wrong.>>3080
Yeah, I just noticed that as well (was my main reason for checking up here, actually). Pretty glad it reached that goal, since that content sounds really interesting. Next stretch goal seems to be a beach resort. Doesn't sound as interesting, but could still be neat due to the dystopian world setting, I'd imagine.
I'd just like to say that this game's officially out now to backers, he hopes to have it out for the public soon.
I really hope so, since I'm not a backer myself, but I'm very excited for it; been checking the page daily for the past week or so.
By the way, if you folks interested in the game haven't yet, you may want to check out some of the newer trailers, since there have been multiple since the game ended its Kickstarter, and the two newest in particular really got me more excited for the game. Going to go ahead and link those two below:
"Life in Hell" Trailer:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1KXi48OobbU
Game is "released" but only to backers. The rest of us will hopefully be getting it soon!
It's out on steam!
About three hours in, late-second area. (i'm getting lost a lot)
It's pretty good, although it doesn't evoke nearly as much disgust as LtF did.
The story line's pretty much every vomitive shithole thread we've got incarnate as some fleshy behemoth. Strongly recommend getting a 100% on LtF beforehand for the sake of the smaller details.
Yay. Now the wait for someone to create a torrent…
Same loser, just beat it.
Pour one out for my homie. A lot of stuff relevant to the first game stills feels unanswered, but knowing this genre they may never be.
It feels a little pricey, but in its nature as a poorly protected RPGMaker game, it'll probably easy access by the end of the week.
I finally bothered getting around to playing the first Lisa game yesterday. It wasn't anything humorously impressive really but I liked it, except for the spider-segments, which pretty much gave me high blood pressure.
I've more or less been watching the ads for this repeatedly since then, and it looks really, really awesome. The Mother series is pretty much my favorite set of games and I love absurd, dark, funny kinds of stuff so I should probably love the hell out of it.
Now if only I had digital shekels for it.
The first Lisa game certainly isn't as impressive (though I found it pretty enjoyable for what it does too), but the new game recently released is really a lot more polished. I've been pretty addicted and playing it every chance I got until I completed it about a day ago. I really liked some of the connections to the first Lisa game as well.
This game still has the uncomfortable and unsettling atmosphere of the first Lisa game, but balanced it out more with lots of silly and Earthbound-like humor (that's not to say the story doesn't get pretty dark at points). I found exploring really fun as well, since there are a lot of events and secrets to see and find, then the gameplay's also been pretty enjoyable to me, since it offers a good challenge, and has some neat unique aspects, like the combos some characters use (it it still traditional turnbased in a lot of ways though, so people who don't like that sort of gameplay may not like it much).
It definitely felt well worth the $10 to me.
Got it with the help of a generous drunk. Good thing too, every other game I've gotten doesn't work on my archaic junk computer.>>3610
Same. I really love the sense of humor to it, especially to the odd little secrets. It has a lot of punchlines you don't expect at all and that's awesome to see. Everything about it is great though, even the dread in the pit of my stomach it manages to evoke in some moments.
The only "problem" I can think of it just how much SJWs would love it were they to muster the patience to get through an actual game, and it's not like it's even the game's fault, it's just the sort of thing that could be read as a commentary on how shitty men or male spaces are if you give it to a deluded person.
Seriously though, it's fantastic. I wish more people would pick it up.
Somewhat off-topic but it has made me think of how many pieces of post-apocalyptic fiction have ridiculously good fathers in them.
You say that but I've seen people saying the exact opposite, that they'd hate it because the female character is only valuable because of her sex and so on. Why would you ever worry about what those types of people think? No one should care, they will either like or dislike it and pick holes in it if they dislike it. It doesn't matter.
You are right.
I finished it earlier today.
Games don't usually get to me much but that made me almost cry, then feel remorse, then extreme shock and horror within–what, 15 minutes maybe? Which is a sign of quality, that it managed to affect me as much as it did, that it found that many ways to destroy the noble and fuck everything with unmitigated human-ness and ugliness. But I've felt drained all day as a result.
I really hope The Last Girl DLC isn't as bad as I expect.
Yeah man, that ending really hit me hard. Rando was a good guy who didn't do anything wrong, I felt really horrible.
That wasn't okay.
Not only that, Rando was that student you took on back when you were still an instructor, the one who didn't have the money for it, who stuttered like the wind, who clearly didn't have any other opportunities in life. That was the only person you really, truly helped, who knew you as a kind person, who respected you even after you fucked up his face and, as far as he and his men knew, you'd done the same to Buddy. Not only was he truly honorable and kind, he was pretty much everything you yourself aspired to be, as well.
Not to mention the fact I had to kill Bo and that was also just fucking sad.
Dude, you are breaking my heart.
Also new Painful Mode update that apparently expands on the ending and adds more things, haven't had a chance to try it out. But you can only use saves once among other things to make the game harder.
Just finished that pain mode.
Wasn't too hard but that new ending…made me stifle a whimper.>>3630
I don't want a new game, I wanted that last girl thing to just be buddy side of the whole game, so we could see what happened to her, I don't see how a new game will spawn from just that since most of her life wasn't nearly as interesting as brads.
>>3637>Wasn't too hard but that new ending…made me stifle a whimper.
Jesus Christ how could it be WORSE?
Now I'm a little afraid to play it.
Its worth it, especially for adding even MORE feels on that final boss fight. I'll leave it at that.
Do it man do it
I will, I will, but I have a feeling it'll be out of a feeling of obligation more than actual desire.
Who are everyone's favorite recruitables? Mine are probably Bo and Harvey, though Nern has the best single interaction.
I loved Harvey, and the whole fishman court thing.
Bo was great, as a companion and a character, I had feels when I took him to what was left of his brother.
Shocklord and Terry were true bros. Birdie and Fly are strong as hell.
I liked a lot of the characters. Nern was fucking amazing, Olan was pretty cool too.
But honestly fuck El Rage, what a fucking piece of shit, you'll understand if he is in your party at the end.
>I had feels when I took him to what was left of his brother.
I hated doing that so goddamm much. I also hated how the game gave you this choice between essentially stealing that last memory of the one he was searching for and obviously loved deeply, and using it as bait, leading him to his doom but allowing him to remain ignorant to that personal tragedy, or letting him wallow in it indefinitely.
>Shocklord and Terry were true bros
That they were.
I finally did it.I'm so fucking sorry for Rando. 2pure4thisworld. Husbando #1. .. Seriously though that was almost too much. Is Austin trying to make everyone wish him back to life only to kill him off again in the next game? Please god no. But of course he wants me to think that, so I'll buy the next one. What a jerkwad.
Where can I download the original Lisa? Alternatively, where can I download the new one? I found the itch.io page, but I'm a "pirate first" kind of guy.
I can't really afford buyer's remorse right now, but I do go back and support games I've liked.
You will have to hunt through the 4chan archive to find a pirated version of LISA though.
>tfw can't play because it requires opengl despite being fucking rpgmaker
hurts so bad bro
Try launching it with the legacy option, either through rightclicking the game and choosing "LISA on rmvxa (legacy)" or simply clicking the Game.exe in the game's folder. It's not as good for controller support (and I'm not sure the legacy option works on Mac and Linux), but it's the same exact thing as if you were playing a typical RPG Maker game, so if you're able to play any RPG Maker VX Ace game, it'll work for you without any real issues.
Anywhere to pirate this game yet? I don't have a credit card.
If I could I'd definitely pay for it + give Dingaling all my money because he honestly deserves it and needs more exposure.
Look up "LISA General" on the archives for /vg/.
>tfw I got a drug-abusing crossdresser to play and finish this game
Felt pretty appropriate.
Beat it awhile ago. Gameplay wasn't as good, more repetitive, and very desolate. But the desolation was definitely by design; shit, almost the whole game took place amongst blood and corpses of those you've gone through, continue to go through even as you the player fucking hate the protagonist and don't want to. Another thing: the character motivation for Buddy isn't that great. Aside from the world as it is having bred that, Brad's expectations having helped, there isn't much there.
Outside of that? Glorious. And incredibly fucked. The ending sequences are some of the most powerful moments in any game I've played tbh, and ding continues to improve music-wise too.
You mean "jew". Goyim means "gentile", aka "non-jew". You ignorant fuck. You just see that meme word getting thrown around a lot and you decide to use it without even knowing what it means.
Do you realize what shitposting means? I actually think devs have the right to monetize their art, If you're frustrated about your shitty life because no one loves you, go be hostile to /v/, where people actually care about that kind of stuff, rude O Meme Cultured Sir.
omg someone misused a meme! Let's call them names and humilliate them for such horrible sin! Behead the infidel! Unforgivabl!11!!
Chill your shit, we're not that kind of imageboard.
Sure are a lot of people who post smug anime girls who believe they speak for the entire board around here.
Yes, I certainly hope people become annoyed at /pol/ tier memes and "It's just shitposting guys it's our BOARD CULTURE XDDDD" until you idiots leave.
You're… Actually offended over it? Over Jew jokes?
Shit anon, I think you might be what that meme is meant for.
Why are you so angry anon? Are you that one anon that always gets salty over jokes? You're cute.
When your "jokes" are outweighing legitimate conversation it's an issue. All you do is deflect, and it's clearly the same 2 or 3 people. Which is really shitting up a board with only a handful of people as it is. If you want to rile up fanboys there plenty of much more populated boards you can funpost at.
Anon posted "Lisa went meme" and you insulted the fuck out of them, what the fuck are you talking about?
Okay I actually feel you, but I mean, you DID get legitimately upset at a shitty-, misused joke. You both look kinda silly.
And sure, legitimate discussion is great, but I would care more if I could think of a time in recent memory that there was discussion here that wasn't self-perpetuating depressing bullshit.
>>3986>When your "jokes" are outweighing legitimate conversation it's an issue.>Anonymous 11/14/13 (Thu) 20:05:20 No.2955 "So now lisa goes goyim"
It's been two fucking years since that post. TWO FUCKING YEARS ANON. The only faggot starting shit here is you.
Not the same anon m8's. That post should have been deleted.
Holy fuck your right.
That's pretty funny honestly.
… Also kind of depressing though. This stupid shit has gotten people posting more than anything else has in awhile.
same bs in the Undertale thread. this board is so dead it cant even discuss NEW games.
How about discussing non-flavor-of-the-month games?
10/10 the irony made me laugh.
Yeah yeah I know people poster >>whoever is retarded let's laugh at him hahahahaha.
So did anyone else play Joyful?
Nobody? That sucks, it was good.
Calm the fuck down autist
>tfw Undertale is getting more exposure than this
LISA is almost a year old. It was huge in the game news media when it was new. Shame Joyful didn't get much coverage though.
Lisa is a year old Undertale came out a month ago what the fuck do you think?
Semi-valid, Lisa wasn't fucking everywhere back then.
Undertale is more kid-friendly and accessible while LISA is a post-apocalyptic nightmare fest. Stop being salty.
KEK, saying Undertale got more attention than lisa is not being salty, drink some tea or something.
I hate more how people keep comparing and pairing them together
like a year later response but I just bought the expansion, I hope I will enjoy it despite the fact I really disliked Buddy
And? How did it go?
oh my god this is like
ultimate catty pet-peeve right here
because of how FAST that shit started popping up
it's like apples and oranges. and i want to rip people's throats out for it
back on topic and since nobody's really touched on all the joyful plotholes since y'all fucks gotta ruin everything, who dis?
>>4320The only thing confirmed about that mutant is this tweet https://twitter.com/Dingalinggames/status/692219766312943620I would personally assume Sweetheart was one of the women Buzzo mentioned during the Pain epilogue from the second game.>the joyful plotholes
Yeah, that sucks.
Though it still also sucks that memetale got SO much more damn exposure.
Of course, there's an obvious reason, pic related.
Also related: my unyielding love for Dingaling.
Joyful could've been done better, to me.Could've used more of the original humor AND Buddy and Buzzo's characters were a little iffy. Buzzo's backstory and how Dusty are treated are 100% pure unadulterated LISA though.
Also related: solid evidence that people with the spelling ability of a 12 year old boy can still create better art than you likely ever will. Somefuckinghow.
Please let's not ruin Lisa's thread(more) with that irrelevant meme game. They have nothing in common.
Yeah. So what were your favorite moments?
Oh wait I just realized it's fucking impossible to go through a favorite moments list for Lisa the Painful. It's all great.
Closest I can come to is the entire intro sequence and ending. And also all of Trash Island. And the Fishmen cave. And the happy music in the screen where you select which party member you want to force to play Russian Roulette. And Bo. And..
people make typos all the time, dont be an ass.
started thinking about it and a lot of them are less plotholes and more just open ends. the only honest-to-god plothole that stands out is the total lack of explanation given about the flash and why olathe was "perfect" for yado's experiment
also maybe the baby at the end of JOYFUL, given the heavy implication that buddy killed literally everyone by the time you finish the game (except for one, but that raises the question of can a joy mutant still get it up).
and yeah there's that trigger, but does anyone really believe bolo could've busted a nut that quick let alone even penetrate her in the 3 seconds it takes for him to get mauled? and if he was that close to buddy at the time wouldn't she have taken pretty significant damage from that shit just by being that close? even with yado's influence, joy mutants generally lack any kind of self-control. or control at all. disregarding sentience, since it seems to vary
given ding's comment on it though, it probably was but i just fucking hate bolo and live in denial>>4323https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a9n5wCdIUNM
herd u were talkin shit
What was the deal with Sticky's father just showing up at the end of Painful? I suppose it's a remnant from when Brad's friends were more important to the plot, but with the appearance in the intro and halfway through the game it seems like there was supposed to be more to him.>>4322
Buddy was horrible, but that was what Dingaling wanted. I feel like how Buzzo was shown was apporpriate because he was a ruthless monster but only to Brad, he didn't have ill will to anyone else.>>4329
Buddy doesn't kill everyone, but rather just destroys most of the remnants of civilization and order. There's still the Joy gang members, and Western Olathe probably isn't completely massacred.
I'd suck ding's dick, was just having fun.>>4331
See I'm not sure about that because he literally jumpstarted the descent into bodyhorror Joy hell just for the opportunity, aside from tortuting Buddy as well; even if he didn't, he clearly wasn't that much of a rogue with a heart of gold.
As far as Sticky, I just think it was another way of showing how much animal lust and vanity and evil people will pour out of themselves onto an empty, friendless wasteland, especially faced with the idea there's no future, nobody to remember them. You had a somewhat normal person at the start of the game and by the end he's mutilating and enslaving a young girl just to leave some sort of mark on the world. And on tender flesh, hah.
As for why Olathe was "perfect," I think it's just because it was the epitome of normal, white, working class America before the Flash. The most effective place to test it would be a place that is for the most part, fairly average. Real-life Olathe is a town that actually exists in Kansas, and it was boring and wholesome enough to be featured in In Cold Blood.
i hope austin's new game he's working on will get talked about
has anyone played lisa the pointless?
I finally went through Painful/Joyful and I really am in love. They're better than I was ever expecting. My only wish is that the games could be longer, but at least the replay value's good.>>4738
I'm wary of any fangames that aren't YN. Frankly I can't see any reason to continue after Joyful, even though I love the setting/characters a lot. I guess that's why it's called 'the pointless' though!
Pointless is pretty much the only Lisa fangame that actually keeps to the general humor and style of the originals, and it's rather goddamn hard to boot. Original tunes to it are very nice and remixes/"reimaginings" of Painful and Joyful songs are fantastic, and the journey of the main characters doesn't actually cross with Brad's journey despite going through some of the same areas. I honestly do rank it among Painful and Joyful.
Does it get better past the Garbage island? Cause I recently got through that section and wasn't loving it.
I didn't mind the difficulty and the art and music seemed pretty good, but the dialogue and story seemed really lacking. There wasn't any hook or sense of purpose, and most of the humor felt like it was trying too hard to be Lisa without understanding what made Lisa's humor work.
Is the start just rough?
Start's a bit rough but it does get better. I adore the game for really forcing you to scavenge absolutely everything you possibly can, from exp via fights to the optional stat-boosts from sidequests like humping garbage on Garbage Island.
