    Dinah says it because she's mocking her mother and she's fed up with being caged in a pocket dimension. These guys are trying to imply that that's the entire message of the whole game and not the words of a pissed off teenager, which is why they keep grasping at that line of dialogue. In that particular scene Dinah is especially haughty and spiteful, versus the first scene with her mother where she's more resigned and scared. Yeah I was hoping this would work as a prototype for a full original game in the future, so commissioning new music that could transition like that would be more possible in that case. Would be nice to do it here, but I don't think it works for mp3s. I'd have to cut together a short transitional tune for all the maps otherwise.

    Yeah. From the teenage girl who's being locked up and is sick of it. I don't have a problem with people responding to the politics. I have a problem with HOW they respond. If you disagree, fine, we can talk. If you think it doesn't fit the medium, fine, we can talk. But if you feel the need to insult, bully, and reprimand me because you disagree (or even outright ban me without letting me defend myself, which has happened before), that's totally out of line. And if it happens to the point where it makes people afraid to post their projects anywhere, that's REALLY not okay. If the theme of the game had been "jews are all untrustworthy scum", then I'd understand being tarred and feathered, and the response WOULD be my fault, because then I'm the one who's out of line. Also you're injecting that "getting mad proves me right" thing. Never said or indicated that. I said getting mad and unreasonable flags the person in question as someone I don't need to take seriously. People have posted already where they didn't care for the story but they didn't treat me like a nazi for it. Also transitions for the music would be nice, but I haven't figured that out yet.

    "valid point" aka "i agree with his assessment of impie despite knowing fuck-all about him, not actually listening to him, and being too angry to think straight" OR c. Arlene made a good point about confusion in the setting, so I fixed it. Seriously, calm the fuck down. Hey, thanks for actually giving it a shot, man. Sorry about spoilers.

    Funny how everyone's so busy ripping me apart about the theme of the story that they gloss over the part where Dinah's mom actually gets sick and dies from the virus, partly due to Dinah's carelessness and spite. As long as some of you are cracking the wad open to cherry pick quotes rather than actually playing it.

    Updated the story so it's Napoleonic Scandinavia, since setting it in Sweden specifically does conflict with the theme a bit. That one page is the only time the nation of origin is mentioned, so it's an easy fix. Yeah, you sound like a really rational and reasonable dude, so I'm totally gonna keep talking to you. Again jumping to conclusions. I never said I saw myself as an elite provocateur. If you actually read my posts, I don't set out to try and provoke people. I don't have to. All I have to do is say what I think, and people go bananas over it, and then try to make it MY fault that they went bananas, which is exactly what you're doing now. "it's more annoying to enjoy because i have to see everyone get all uppity about it etc". So tell THEM to fuck off, not me. I'm not a troll. I'm not trying to piss people off. I should be able to say what I want without being targeted by a fucking lynch mob, and then being blamed when people overreact and start acting like assholes over a disagreement. So spare me your condescending bs please. The pandemic element was a perfect, topical setting for a good family theme: overprotective, sheltering parents hurt their children. Yeah, I also liked that it was topical, but it brought out the conflict between mother and daughter that was lacking originally, and I didn't have to use something as cliche as zombies and princesses to do it. And again, I should be able to use current events in my work without being persecuted for it just because senior members come from a different political sphere.

    I set it in a steampunk/magic Napoleonic Sweden for something different setting-wise. Didn't want to go with a fictitious nordic nation since i already ran with that in the Juno mods. I'm well aware that contemporary Sweden never locked down. Maybe I should've gone with a phony nation after all? In any case, you can highlight stuff like that without being an asshole about it. The story never really worked until I added the pandemic element to it, then everything started to click. Be salty all you want, that's on you, not me. Just because you don't like what I have to say doesn't automatically make me a troll. I make what I want, I make it how I want, and I say what I want. How you react is on you. And you're right, I had a feeling some people would get salty with me. But at this point I actually am happy when my work makes people angry and belligerent, because it always seems to be the worst personalities the community has to offer. Makes it easy to weed out the people I don't want to associate with in future. I mean, if people disagree with the social commentary, there's lots of ways to say so. You guys consistently choose the worst, most condescending, and most antagonistic or passive-aggressive ways of expressing your thoughts on this stuff when you do disagree with me. You talk down to me, you make ridiculous accusations and jump to conclusions, you utterly villify me, etc etc, and all the while it never occurs to you that that kind of behavior doesn't make ME look like the bad guy.

    Actually another idea occurred to me I could keep in mind: the dyna-music is on a timer, so instead of starting the timer at max each time its triggered (200 tics, ticking down to 0), i could make it additive (ex: +75 tics per activation) so it doesnt happen unless youre attacked multiple times or by multiple enemies. I'll make a couple notes and experiment.

    not at the moment, no. sorry. i could probably add a custom option to the config menu at some point.

    thanks man. if y'all will excuse me, i'm gonna go sleep for a week... this was originally a YA novel I never published, with a story that needed a lot of work. This version is definitely better, and it's much more suited to something interactive like a video game. I'm hoping somewhere down the line I can use this prototype to produce a fuller and more immersive original game.

    GET IT HERE Been working on this for a year and figured I may as well post it everywhere. It's a standalone, so just run it in Gzdoom and you're good to go. Somewhere in Napoleonic Sweden, explosives heiress Dinah Wyck awakens in a strange garden, with an equally strange robot maid insisting that she is sick and must go back to bed. Dinah has no memory of how she came to enter Castle Quarantine, nor why its bizarre inhabitants are so hostile toward her. And somewhere in the distance she hears the voice of her father calling to her. Armed only with a cricket bat and a handful of cherry bombs, Dinah sets out on a quest to rescue her father and find a way out of Castle Quarantine... GAME INFO:

    Can someone recommend good WADs to me?

    Yassir, and a bunch of others. I was moving everything to mediafire, that's why the downloads were down for a couple days. Everything should be working now though.
