Yukabacera: Those are some weird and funny lyrics, but I haven't heard the song...

I have a question. (Hope this isn't considered a spoiler?) The weapon information for the Komato General has this list, divided into tiers:
1 - Ragebomb, Tyrian claw, Ripper, Heavy stomp
2 - Arch Devastator, Ultra shotgun, Zica burst, Fractal rockets
3 - Death hail, Eruption, Megamissile
4 - Charge, Nanostorm, Phantom Hammer


It helps if I first explain his pattern:
Fire tier 1 weapon
Fire tier 2 weapon
Wait...
Fire tier 1 weapon
Fire tier 2 weapon
Wait...
Fire tier 1 weapon
Fire tier 2 weapon
Fire tier 4 weapon (charge/Phantom Hammer)
Jump into distance, fire tier 3 weapon
Return, repeat

As for each weapon:
Tier 1 weapons: Ragebomb are the scattering round bombs that hit the floor, Tyrian claw are the purple "spinning blades" that sit around for awhile, Ripper is the blue three-way laser, Heavy stomp is when he stomps the ground to make a shockwave that lifts you up.

Tier 2 weapons: Arch Devastator is the MPFB Devastator, Ultra Shotgun is when the targets appear that explode shortly after, Zica burst is when he stomps the ground to cause green spikes to shoot up, Fractal rockets are the rockets that split up.

Tier 3 weapons: Death hail is the raining blue laser attack, Eruption is the red instant shockwave, Megamissile are the slow missiles you can reflect.

Tier 4 weapons: Charge is when he charges a ball, and Nanostorm is the attack used when he wants to use the Phantom Hammer (gathered three Chargeballs) but he's lost too much health to use it.

Tyrian claw, Zica burst and Megamissile are references to the PC game Tyrian, as is the Pulse cannon and Hyper pulse.

About the kill count, reflected shots always count as your kill, as long as it's the finishing blow (kills are only awarded at the moment an enemy's HP drops to 0, so you can damage them all you want as long as they survive). Kicked turrets and dismounted shredders need to hit the enemy shortly after you kick/dismount, as pointed out. Once again, I wish I had planned the paficist modifiers from the start.

Ooh, I've never seen him use Nanostorm. Probably because the only time I've ever let him gather three charge balls was the first time I fought him. :)

What's it do? Or better yet, how much health does he have to have to start using it instead of the Hammer?

Try An Untitled Story, it's also generally awesome.
:GM028:

Also it's pretty much an opposite of this game, as An Untitled Story explains almost nothing, and this game explains virtually everything.

Nanostorm turns the Chargeballs into lots of particles that fly at Iji one at a time, draining armor. If they drain your armor completely, you're knocked down for 3 HP damage, but it's easy to avoid if you keep moving.

To use the Phantom Hammer, Tor needs:
on Normal, over or equal to 750 of his 900 max HP (83%)
on Hard, over or equal to 825 of his 1050 max HP (79%)
on Extreme and Ultimortal, over or equal to 900 of his 1200 max HP (75%)

Yuka, I've had my share of videogame-related dreams, including ones where I walked in my sleep, but that was still pretty weird. You need to stop thinking about this game. :p

Nah, I'm definitely not going to be able to stop thinking about it at least until my fanfic's finished ^_^ Not far off now though, I've nearly reached the Iosa boss battle. You know how it is when you're writing something and it's so desperate to get out on paper (or, these days, in readable form even if no actual paper is involved) that it won't let go of your mind until it's finished?

Which reminds me, I have another question. Are Iosa and Tor lovers? I remember in my first playthrough I formed the impression that they were -- based, I think, on Tor's final logs and his dialogue before you fight him -- but now after replaying the level I can see no conclusive evidence, just a possibility.

And then Komato Trooper 06712-07892-30144 looked up and said to Komato Trooper 08965-27358-10735 "You're hot." and then Iji teleported in, cracked a security door, blew up a door on the wall, and killed the lot of them.

I never really decided on Iosa and Tor, but he's pretty shaken by her death. To the Komato, being partners in war might be worth even more to them than love. I guess I'll just leave it open. :p

Well, it was Tor that saved Iosa when she was alpha struck as a kid, wasn't he? Being somewhat older, it could easily be interpreted, that he regarded her more as a father would. [seeing as he kinda watched her grow, etc.] Depends on where you want the story to go, I guess.

And that really is an epic picture! ;)

I already knew she was in the army, and part of that experiment [in which she was the lone success case], but I was meaning more she was 'young'. I.e. in human terms 20 something years old. I have no idea how that counts in Komato years, but I had a feeling they live a lot longer than humans! You'll notice he says 'and she's already been promoted to Berserker class. ' implying, she's quite a young one.

And if you read the next log post[Longturn 8], you'll see that Yukabacera refers to her as the 'one-girl-army'.. definitely gives the impression of youth. (he also refers to 'the Komata and Tasen's 'excessively long lifespans', so it would probably be fair to say that General Tor's been around a while)

But, yeah, just open for interpretation :)

Read the next log post? Don't forget, I wrote them! :) Not sure what I was on about when I wrote about their "excessively long lifespans" -- after all, compared to what?

Longturn 8 refers to Tor as a "new General" and says "I can tell he'll be around for starturns upon starturns to come", so I'd guess he's fairly young as well, though obviously being a General at all means he must have some experience behind him.

You wrote them! :) Nice!

I actually, finished reading the rest of the posts, and was going to query some of them (I thought Daniel Remer wrote them.. dang I suppose the writers name should have been a give away!)

I always thought of Krotera as a 'bad' person... who's trying to do the 'right' thing. I.e. a bit of a patriot. The type of guy who would stop at NOTHING to do his responsibility.. saving his people. You may remember a log post where he said 'remember Hel Sarie!'. A strong, cruel bully, doing his best to help his people survive, letting nothing get in his way. Trying to do, what his superior(hero?) failed to do. [His bad attitude probably bred, from having to watch, his people's empire crumble bit, by bit, with each of the leaders failing&falling one by one.]

However, in your log's he came across as a bit of a sneak. Running from an annihilator, (which, btw, I'm pretty sure he could kill with his big spread MFPB gun), saying that stuff on that broadcast.
That's not so cool. :) Yes, Krotera was cruel, and a bully, one who abused his powers, to get his way. But in the end, he was only trying to save his people, even to the end. That's why I kinda like him. :P By doing what he felt was best, he came across as cruel and a bully, and was hated by even his own people. He died, trying his best to save them. :'(

Well, that's how I interpreted his character, for the brief run-ins I've had with him :D

If the maker of something hasn't even decided whether or not something is something, it's probably better off not discussed. This stuff isn't real, you know?

Longturn 8 refers to Tor as a "new General" and says "I can tell he'll be around for starturns upon starturns to come", so I'd guess he's fairly young as well, though obviously being a General at all means he must have some experience behind him.

Actually no, what you're saying makes no sence.

For one, you don't have to be young to be a "new general," you can still be old and be promoted to a higher rank, and "I can tell he'll be around for starturns upon starturns to come" doesn't matter because the aliens have "excessively long lifespans," so your theory pretty much falls in on itself.

Well, I've finally managed to make a bit more progress with repeating (and this time videoing) my "perfect game" challenge. I've got up to halfway through Sector 5, but next comes one of the nastiest parts of the challenge -- getting the poster in this sector without any kills. It can be done, but it requires a lot of luck and you have to replay the entire sector to retry it.

Supermini_man is correct, also it would be the lousiest hourly wage ever to sell Iji, especially since I would want to split it with the actors, musicians and testers. There's no way I could have worked full time on it, the month-long breaks and being able to work whenever I wanted were a requirement for something this large. Iji as a job would be terrible!

The things in the game I or HyperDuck do not own the rights to is the credits song and the sound effects (except voices, which I recorded). Though I modified the sound effects, I couldn't charge for a game including them.

krele, the soundtrack was made by friends without profit before they became HyperDuck. Actually some people on Newgrounds are claiming credit for Chris's songs from the Iji soundtrack - nice userbase they got there! I wouldn't want to associate with that site either way, and I wouldn't use someone's work without both asking first and crediting them.

Best Effing Game Maker game I have ever played!

I have collected all the posters, scrambler, massacre, etc and have beaten the game a couple of times. Still can't get past the bonus sectors to get the null driver though B)

The ingame comments are very funny, and the story is very impressive and well thought out. Graphics are a bit flat, but only a bit; and it still looks great!

Final boss animations are incredible and the weapons and combos are pretty creative too.

10/10

you should have sold it, you would have made a fortune. :P

you should have sold it, you would have made a fortune. ::lmao::

Again, let's say I could sell it and somehow would make a lot of money. I still wouldn't want to, since I want my hobby games freeware so as many people as possible could play them, and selling something brings a whole new responsibility to answering questions and updating it.

Just out of curiosity, in the Iji-verse, are humans directly descended from the Tasen? Or just a species that happened to evolve after they left?

I never fully decided on those things to write about them in-game, as they weren't meaningful to the story. But the idea was that the Komato came first from some ancient mammal, left Earth, and the Tasen evolved from them later once they had started colonizing planets. Other species of that ancient mammal left on Earth would remain primitive, go on to become the apes, and eventually humans. I never set a timeframe for the Komato's history, it's simpler to just say "a really long time ago". :)

One idea that didn't make it into the game stated that the Tasen were leftovers from when the Komato started altering themselves with bioengineering at a rapid pace, once they had claimed Nanotechnology from another warlike species they encountered and destroyed. A logbook about the Velocithor implies it. That's why the Tasen were seen as inferior from the start. Under their helmets the Komato look engineered and unnatural, but I decided to never show it to keep the mystery about them.

makerofthegames: It's just the backstory. :p Even when writing something short it's good to have a well-planned story behind it. Typing out all the details and history and stuff would just bore the player, but having it in mind as an inspiration to build upon sets the scene and lets the story almost write itself.

I would say, if I knew the first thing about writing.

Someone needs to try to make a game that's just as good/better than Iji.
...

And yes... It's possible (with lotsa hard work and five years)
So if you wanna get a topic like Iji- GET TO WORK! 2015 is the deadline :lol:

Do I want to read this? :)

Already been done a couple of thousand times.

I made an improvement of my speedrun of the game and submitted to SDA, which now accepts freeware runs. Watch it here if you're geek enough. The blurb at the top wasn't written by me, just the comments, which go pretty in-depth. I hope ExplodingCabbage will stick to his words of obsoleting it, it's pretty embarrasing to have to run your own game.

Thousand times???
You must think the worst of your game :D

Ultimortal and Banov are the top GM game makers imo.
But... IMO Banov's games are better. (It's just my opinion)

YES a thousand times

Maybe one or two games are as good as iji in GM.
