Gf2

Well, it's not gonna be official or anything like that, but I'm gonna try to make my own GF2 game, just for the fun of it!

A guy that used to be around the gfn named, uh, Recquesfat or something like that. I doubt its that but I knew it was a word that started with an R and had a Q and three syllables. Well, he tried to make his own fansequel, which was completely amatuer and a fansequel, but Lucasarts contacted him anyway telling him he couldn't do it. It's really sad because the screenshots looked great.

One of the moderators or gfn historians will remember his name.


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

Did they say why he couldn't do it? Thats annoying... Oh well, I'll still do it, but I won't give it to anyone. Just a little version for my family

Wah, LucasArts sure is mean. One day there will be an adventure game made of my future books (it's my dream, don't mock me) and I will give fans all kinds of rights...

But, I wouldn't ask LucasArts if i were you, because they will almost definetly say no.

And, this guy made a short Grim Fandango 2 demo ages ago, which was really good - it actually worked in full nice 3D. But he got shut down. I can upload the demo if anyone wants it..?

I suppose if you knew how, it wouldn't be that difficult to recode the existing game to change the story.

It would take ages though!

Edit - My Grim Fandango site is up now, and it can be downloaded from there now

It's just a tech demo because the guy was working on the proper game but then he got shut down by L.A., i think.

It looked much better than I thought. The character was a bit odd though.

@Dawidos: No, unfortunately there is nothing you can do except walk. The guy did the hard part of making a good game engine, but was shut down before he could add in puzzles and more rooms

Infact, i'm not sure if he was shut down. He might have just given up on the project, and said he could give it to anyone who could continue it. I seem to remember reading something like that on his site. I'll see if i can find the site again, and if I do, i'll post a link, and maybe he'll give us the source code so one of us can continue it

yeah, even though it is just walking around, it's still cool that someone did that! I'd like to learn more too.

I e-mailed the guy yesterday at the e-mail adress provided in the readme, seeing as i couldn't find his site.

He hasn't responded yet, but fingers crossed he does.

Yeah, Adrian Bashi was his name I think. I found his email in my box from two years ago. I emailed him to work on it, and he said it had been shut down four months before or so. There was an interview with him on one of the oldschool GFN sites from the good old days. "Indigo Island". The screenshots looked sweet and I have a couple of the MIDIs too, which were okay,

It's said, his idea was cool.

Well, if someone made huge money out of GF2 wouldn't LucasArt make a mint by taking it to the court? They have the rights and all...

But if it was freeware and became a hit, maybe it would actually inspire them to make GF2 one day?

Or not. But hey, that reminds me. I was on another message board somewhere and there was this guy who said:

Besides, I read on a site that George Lucas will probably start working on it soon, but not at the moment because of all the Star Wars movies happening. It said in perhaps... by 2009 or something it will be either done and begin selling or begin production.

I somehow find that highly unlikely. Call me a pessimist if you want.

Yeah, 20 is old. I don't ever want to be that ancient. I would like to stay exactly as I am now, 16.

Despite the fact we're getting totally off-topic, I disagree with Naomi, which I am about the same age as. My youth is a handicap and can't wait until five years from now when my life is actually happening.

Well, I am fortunate enough to be able to think that my current age is always the best. When I was 11 I didn't want to grow up, same thing for 12, 13, 14 and 15. I am always happy, just thinking about the future is not nice.

Oh, the person who said the "year 2009 rumour" actually e-mailed me because we both write fanfiction. I asked her about the rumour and she said that it's probably not true.

Good advice. Unfortunately, I will never have the ability appreciate where I live and the fact I don't have the credentials to leave.

Häpeä myöntää, mutta en tajua irkistä yhtään mitään. En ole edes varma, mikä se on. Yritän tänä iltana kokeilla jotain. Lähden huomenna viideksi päiväksi vahtimaan kakaroita, katsotaan mitä ehdin.

Juh, nyt tajusin, mikä se irkki on. Minulla ei kylläkään ole sen paremmin kelvollista sähöpostia kuin sivuille sopivaa kuvaakaan. Ja tietääkseni siellä pääsevät kirjoittelemaan vain rekisteröityneet käyttäjät.

Tee tänne vaikka erikseen topikki tälle aiheelle tai lähetä sähköpostia (sen pitäisi näkyä täällä jossain). En tiedä miten nopeasti ehdin vastaamaan, mutta jos tämän päivän aikana ei tule mitään, kannattaa kysyä neuvoa joltain muulta. Se voi olla muutenkin kannattavaa, sillä en ole mikään vuosisadan tietokonenero ja kuten sanoin, olen tavoitettavissa vasta perjantaina.

Hm, we are heavily off topic and using a language no one else probably understands. We are so evil.

No offense taken. I figured it would be impolite to use a non-English language. I won't do it again. Unless I'm paid!
