Yoshi's Strange Quest (V1.4 in progress)

Link Thread Closed

Standard

Awesome. Looks like everyone is using VWF dialogues recently.
Layout by piranhaplant.
Thinking about making a Rainbow Magic thread at the Media forum.
Thanks. Yeah, with the VWF dialogues patch, I can let my creativity shine in my writing. Currently, I'm writing the text that will appear during cutscenes. Since I don't think I'll be able to include Yoshi's thoughts in the text, since I'm not sure how I would present them, I'll need to be creative when I write the text, so that these cutscenes will still be funny, or at least silly.

Speaking of which, I just finished writing the cutscene text for one of the later cutscenes (I'm not saying which one, or what boss you have to fight to see it), and it's pretty funny (or at least weird if you don't find it funny), if somewhat long. I'll post it here (highlight it to see it). For those that don't care about spoilers, tell me what you think about it.

Yoshi: Awww. It would have been nice to see Yoshi's max HP go above 30, so Yoshi could take more that 7 hits at maximum.

Yoshi: Darn it! Not another empty stat increase!
- CUTENESS: +5 -
Yoshi: Yoshi was already super cute, but it's nice to see that Yoshi is even more cute now!
- FATNESS: +10 -
Yoshi: Hey! What kind of stat increase is that?! Yeah, like Yoshi could have POSSIBLY gained weight from the level up! Ha! *pokes belly* Nevermind.... You know, now that Yoshi thinks about it, Yoshi kind of likes being overweight for some reason. Yoshi doesn't know why, though.

Yoshi: It's good to know that Yoshi can now reach things with Yoshi's tongue that are slightly farther away than before.
- SHOE SIZE: +2 -
Yoshi: Makes sense. Yoshi's shoes do feel a bit tighter after Yoshi's fatness stat went up, so Yoshi is going to need a bigger shoe size now.

Yoshi: That's good, since all this extra weight is going to make it a bit harder to move until Yoshi gets used to it or burns it off, where the latter is very unlikely.

Man, that cutscene was absolutely HILARIOUS, especially the last part, when Yoshi "leaves the cutscene", and it says "AWESOMENESS: +INFINITY-".

Why are you looking down here?

Thanks. :)
I feel that this is arguably one of the funnier cutscenes that I've written for this hack so far. My favorite parts to it are the last few lines, the first few lines, and the part where Yoshi didn't believe he gained weight from the level up, but is quickly proven wrong.

gotta admit this game looks pretty cool.

also, I understand more what type of people it seems this game'll be aimed at, judging by the cutscene (I personally didn't find it funny (or weird), but it seemed to be more aimed kind of younger audience. It also reminded me of the Kirby Super Star RPG Boss ending, which may be where your inspiration came from~)


I never really put much thought into who this hack was aimed at. I'd say it would be aimed towards a younger audience like you said (due to my sense of humor and the lack of any adult content), as well as Yoshi fans (for obvious reasons). As for the last thing you said, I was indeed inspired by that boss's ending in Kirby Super Star when I went to write this cutscene.


As for updates on YSQ, I'm currently rewriting the text found in the scenario rooms, to make them more interesting, and to convert them into the new format. Some of the text for the outcomes are quite a bit funnier than before (particularly for the third one, if you like toilet humor that is). Also, I noticed a new LP of YSQ V1.2, done by slakkmichael:

The video quality is pretty bad (the image is too tiny for starters), while his commentary is interesting.

Two Yoshis in Yoshi's house now that's weird.(yoshi kid is awsome!)
I've missed lots haven't i? XD
I was a bit AFSMWC for a while so.
Looking good and its annoying that I had to cancel my YSQ Series! D:

While I like the Yoshi kid from PMTTYD, I don't think it was necessary to post a large picture of him in this thread, especially since it doesn't have much to do with YSQ (of course, since you've been banned, it's not going to matter what I say about it). Also, I don't think that two Yoshis living at Yoshi's house is very strange, considering that Yoshi and his sleepy friend are roommates.

Yeah, it's a shame that your YSQ LP got deleted, since it was a pretty good LP. It's up to you if you want to redo that LP or not, though, or you could do an LP of V1.3 of YSQ sometime after it's finished.


As for updates, since I've switched to the new message format, I started to focus a bit more on the story. While the story won't change overall, I'm able to write it better, as well as add extra information about things to fix inconsistencies or make things more interesting. Here's a few examples:

- How come Yoshi can tell which eggs are his, and which ones will hatch? It's because he has some instinct that lets him know those things. However, he needs to be close to his eggs to know that they are his, otherwise he may mistake anything that looks like a Yoshi egg as one of his eggs from a distance.

- Yoshi's sleepy friend is Yoshi's roommate, which is why he is found at Yoshi's house in both MSQ and YSQ.

- Yoshi doesn't actually want to help Red Yoshi clean up his mess, especially since Yoshi doesn't even know Red Yoshi, but he reluctantly decided to help since he just happens to be passing by, and because Yoshi is a nice dinosaur.

- Yoshifanatic is the narrator.

That's all I got to say for now.

Nice, I might re-do the LP on the next version on my new channel, if I have the time to do it.
Hey guys, I've got a couple more updates for YSQ. Before I begin, though, I need to say something. *ahem*

It's wacky!

Now that that has been said, here's the other updates I have:

- Like I've said before, I'm going to change the scenario rooms so that they use the VWF dialogues. However, I no longer plan to include a little picture "showing" the results of that choice, considering how these scenario rooms will now be set up. However, I plan on compensating for that by creating a drawing for each outcome in all the scenario rooms (10 scenario rooms with 3 choices each = 30 drawings) and uploading those drawings to my deviantART account. Of course, I won't start on the second half of those drawings until sometime after YSQ V1.3 is done, since I don't want to spoil the last 5 scenario rooms. I'll announce when I start this. Also, while this may seem unnecessary, I like to go out of my way to make YSQ more interesting. Think of this as bonus material, or concept art, or something like that.

- I have a really interesting idea for the intro level, though I'm not going to say what it is yet.

- Click the link near the top of this post for another update (if you haven't done so already that is).

That's all I've got for updates now.

Alright then. I'll be looking forward to that LP once I'm done with YSQ.

Saying that I might do the reLP, there might be a more of a chance that I will do it, just that I am doing game playthroughs atm, I have two games planned that I really want to do (which I am doing):

Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exodus.

So once I get them out of the way then I might be able to reLP this, but if my mate has recieved his capture card then I might have to hold that off again as I would be doing more games like:

Jurrasic Park: WarPath
Crash Bandicoot 3
New Super Mario Bros Co-op playthrough
and a heck ton more!


Edit: Got rid of my layout, its out of date! :D

loved the cut scene you posted and speaking of that do think the game got the Achievement called:

Achievement: You just got owned bitch
Description: keep pissing off Yoshi until he breaks down and leaves the cut scene. Looks like he will have to go to the emergency room after this
Because that would be funny#mlp{dh}
Check out my Hack Thread
Hey guys, it's been a while hasn't it? Well, I haven't been up to working on YSQ much this past month or two. I've also been busy with other things, as well, but you guys probably don't want to hear about that. You want to hear about YSQ, right? Well, I'm going to do that. To make up for the long gap between updates, and to show that this hack isn't dead, here's 20 screenshots from various levels showing off YSQ:

Title Screen/Intro

Title Screen 2.0 1/2 by Yoshifanatic


Stay smart, shop smart at.... uh, umm,... this store!

Yoshi's New Home

Yoshi's New Home: now with 100% more secrets and 50% less sodium than typical Yoshi houses!

Red Yoshi's Mansion

Can I have that Yoshi plush?

Slimy Cave

Get some more hand sanitizer! Trust me, you're going to need it.

Purple Switch

Purple is the new red.

Castle Crush

It's a castle that has a crush on you.

Forest Access

Remember this spot? Well, in the future I predict that that weight loss program I got that fat blue Yoshi (you know, the Yoshi that blocks your path at the end of the current demo) on (which involves eating less, exercising more, and getting hugged a lot) will be a success. What lies beyond him?


Absolutely nothing interesting. :P

Dessert Canyon



Yoshi must be in heaven right now.

Ruined Castle

This level is exactly what it sounds like.

Fiery Boardwalk

Yoshi: What kind of boardwalk is this?! Yoshi can't find the cotton candy stand!!

Vertical Forest




Holy cow, that is cool! O.O Yoshi is eating a berry! How awesome is that? :D

Brown Switch


This level is a lot like Giant Chasm, except a lot less disgusting.

Wacky Land

cmbvef4euhfnc57bvr8+cvy
(Translation: This place is weird and wacky, like the language I wrote this sentence in.)

Rip Van Castle


What's their problem? I was only listening to heavy metal music that is really loud.

?????




The final castle. Will Yoshi prevail?

Here's some more info about some of the stuff in the screenshots.
- Yes, I drew that store by myself. I used a screenshot as a reference.
- Yoshi's House now serves a bigger purpose than before. When you beat certain levels, you will "unlock" something, which can be accessed from Yoshi's House by touching the ? blocks that are now present. For example, the level known as "Secret House", will now be accessed by touching the note block in Yoshi's house, but you must beat the last level in the special world first before the block will take you there.
- I've gotten better at level design lately. Expect the new levels to have a more varied layout, multiple ways of getting past certain obstacles, and more.
- The picture from Red Yoshi's Mansion not only shows that I've added some decorations to the level to make it look more like a house, but it also shows what most of the cutscenes will now look like in general.
- I intend on showing off a few of the new levels I've shown here in a video sometime in the future (The first one will probably show off the title screen demo (which I have to redo, since I reported everything, and the savestate that had the moves doesn't work for some reason) and the intro).

So, that's about it. It's going to be a while before YSQ is finished since I have 27 levels left to finish. Hopefully, I will be able to finish a good chunk of those levels before I'm not up to working on YSQ again.

Wow looks pretty good. I am waiting this product to be finished!
Woot, I'm finnaly back from... somewhere, anyway I like where this is going, now that I am better at editing and stuff, I would like to try to making a trailer for this, if I can.
:)
A bit late, but I like that this is being worked on again! I REALLY enjoyed the last demo! It may be for a younger audience, but the incredible amount of fourth-wall breaking ("did yoshifanatic even test his game" killed me) and overall unserious feeling made me feel in love with it. And the fact that we got Yoshi's abilities is even better, too bad there are no melons though... :( I'm sure you could have had cool ideas with these.

Also, why did Bowser steal Yoshi's eggs AGAIN? Can't he just buy some in that maket you showed up? They would make WAY better omelets!

If you think the amount of fourth wall breaking is pretty large in the current demo, wait until you see V1.3. (For example, in the intro, I'm telling a quick story of what Yoshi has been up to since the end of MSQ (since I now serve as a narrator in this game), when I accidentally wake Yoshi up. Then, Yoshi starts talking with me). Yoshi breaks the fourth wall so much, there might as well not even be one (especially since it's costing me so much darn money just to keep fixing it! :P) Also, that cutscene you mentioned has been updated a bit. Yoshi still comments on how he thinks the game hasn't been tested, but there is even more to it then before. The fourth wall ceases to exist once this cutscene starts:

Originally posted by Yoshi when the wrong cutscene loads
Yoshi: Huh?! This is the wrong cutscene! Is this a glitch or something? Oh well... hey, Yoshifanatic!
Yoshifanatic: Yes, what is it Yoshi?
Yoshi: Yoshi wants to know if you even tested this hack or not.
Yoshifanatic: Yes, I and several others tested this hack. Why do you ask?
Yoshi: This cutscene is broken! How did you and the others miss this during testing?
Yoshifanatic: I'm not sure. The right cutscene loaded just fine for me when I tested this game. Maybe the IPS patch glitches a bit when some people go to apply the patch or something?
Yoshi: Yoshi doesn't know why it happens either, but you really should fix this glitch before you release the hack.
Yoshifanatic: I've already uploaded the final version of Yoshi's Strange Quest to SMWCentral.net.
Yoshi: Great. Just great. *sigh* It could have been much worse, though, at least. Yoshi could have lost the egg Yoshi just rescued, which is the third one Yoshi has saved, due to the glitch.
Yoshifanatic: You've already rescued 3 eggs so far? That's great to hear, Yoshi! Great work!
Yoshi: Yeah, Yoshi is really happy to now have three of Yoshi's eggs. Just 4 more to go before Yoshi has them all. Now then, since Yoshi is stuck in this faulty cutscene, could you help Yoshi get out of here?
Yoshifanatic: Sure, anything for you Yoshi! I'll teleport you out of here to the place where this cutscene was supposed to take you. Oh, and good luck finding the rest of your eggs!


Given the way I wrote this, some of it doesn't make sense until YSQ V1.3 actually has been released. If anyone decides to read this cutscene text, just pretend that YSQ V1.3 has already been released as you read it.

As for the other things you said, if the melons were a feature in the Yoshi Player patch from the beginning, I would have probably used them. As it is now, it's kind of too late to implement them, since YSQ is already too far along.

I do have an explanation for why Yoshi's eggs have been stolen again, but I must keep that a secret for now. I can't reveal everything about this hack before release, after all. :P



Also, I've decided on something. While I currently have plans to make 68 levels for YSQ, depending on how much ROM space I have left once everything else is done, I might add a few more levels/features/music/etc. to the hack. I want there to be a lot of stuff to do in YSQ, but I'm not sure of how much ROM space I'll have left when all is said and done.

Totally not a video showing off the title screen/intro/Yoshi's House in YSQ.

Just finished watching the new intro screen and tutorial stuff. It was freaking hilarious, and I loved all of the little jokes and 4th wall breaking. Can't wait till this hack is finished #w{=)}


Everything in there looks pretty cool, though I made sampled version of Rambi's Rumble (Music Section) so if you want, use it.

I really liked everything you made there cause it's so much improved.

Did you forget that I was a beta tester? I really want to test something! (I like this so much)
