Originally the main character was an ostrich suffering from mental imbalance and multiple personalities. Tim Schafer killed the idea because he strongly believes in games being "wish fulfillments", guessing that not many people fantasize about being an insane ostrich. ????????

Go here (http://www.razputin.net/?newsid=1114241367) if you're interested in the video where Tim spoke about this; he talks quite a lot about how he came up with the game itself and various other tidbits, and you only need Flash to view it. :)

Personally I think playing as a skitzophrenic Raztrich sounds fun.

Hmmmm, That makes me think of the cast becoming animals. Sasha...the Koala?

Don't be ridiculous... he'd be a mongoose.

Milla would definitly be a peacock, and Nils.....A penguin?

Vernon would be a parrot.

...with a cold.

DarthAve

Hmm, odd. Or he'd be a bunny, going on and on and on and on......

No. Oleander would be a bunny. Obviously.

then ford would have to be a dog, just because of the sudden change of personality

That actually sounds pretty cool when you leave out the ostrich part. I like Raz the ways he is tho. :spin:

No..Raz as an ostrich? That's just not cool.

DarthAve
12-29-2005, 09:54 PM
It's not cool. It's weird, yet hilarious to picture.

Zetz Darke
12-29-2005, 11:45 PM
Yea...Ostrich Raz isn't a very attractive thought. I just meant that the multi personality character who had diff powers depending on the personality was cool. Still, I wouldn't change Raz's character. Or any of the other characters either. I think Tim Schafer did a great job on everyone's personalities.

Wow. Think of all the stereotypical furry things that may happen if they were animals.

HAAHAA! I TOTALLY MADE YOU THINK ABOUT IT DIDN'T I? I win by default.

Raz should be a Mr. Saturn.

Think of the little guys levitating people and... levitating people.

Mashi An'krekku
12-30-2005, 06:06 AM
NO THEY SHOULD ALL BE MR. SATURN. The Game dialogue would be hilarious.

OLEANDER: THIS IS BRAIN. IT YOUR FRIEND.
KIDS: BOING ZOOM!
RAZ: ZOOOOOOOOOOOOM! (falls out of a tree)
LILI: Boooooooing?

...Okay. Actually, that's not cool anymore.

KingCheez
12-30-2005, 07:07 AM
Then we'll have to settle for Raz being a saturn, with some Duel Berettas, a facemask, themesong Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood, and he has to smoke, also turn into Dark Jak.

KingCheez

Yes I can.

Now you're in your room with Gex Gecko. And he's trying to get out. Crawling on the ceiling. Looking for a TV.

Here's (http://www.gamespy.com/articles/585/585524p1.html) the interview that Wikipedia was specifically referencing with the whole ostrich thing. Apparently that idea evolved into it being simply an insane guy with MPD before the idea of an insane asylum setting led Tim to go back to an older game idea about jumping into people's heads.

So this is a really old, predevelopment speculation report. I never liked reading those: it was like reading the original concept notes for something like Star Wars, in the sense that it's sort of shaking to hear how the character was created over time, and not the idea from the beginning.

I'm just wondering what ostrich Raz would be doing as an ostrich. Still going into people's minds?

KingCheez
12-31-2005, 04:43 PM
Kicking people.

No way. You might not be a guy, and you don't know how much it hurts. Just grazing them, man, KILLS.

Don't. If you ever want to be loved, don't kick anyone in the balls.

Or they will rip your eyeballs out.

I live off of hate.

Most people think that girls getting hit down there or girls falling down on balance beams doesn't hurt them.

Are they wrong.

Oh so wrong.

I've never felt pain like falling on a balance beam.

One could say it's a test of will, though I'd say that something like endurance must be built up over time, and will not survive the sudden shock of too much weight.

We have relatively nice soda vending machines where I live. However once you get into the state over it's 3 bucks a pop.
