Comedic referances that should be made in Lugaru: Overgrowth

Post by Chainsaw man » Fri Oct 10, 2008 10:00 am

This is a comedic thred about what the players think should be humorus referances in Lugaru: Overgrowth.

Here is a list of some I though of:

Chainsaws (yes, I had to make a chainsaw referance, nothing like a slasher, or horror violence to get a vote with me)
Small bowel overgrowth syndrome (A Referance to Jeffs statement on L:OG on Wiki)
NPCs that are referance to some of the Forum Memebers (Cause its great to be recognized as fans)

Implementation:

Chainsaw: A super powerful hidden weapon obtained though a unlockable quest.

Small bowel overgrowth syndrome: While going though some lybrary of some kind Turner finds a scroll or something on this topic. He is in reality after another scroll. When he gose to hand this in, the Quest giver tell him thats the wrong scroll in some funny dialog and obtaines the right one from him.

NPC Referances: Ok, I will speak for myself on this one, I dont want to be acused of laying flame bait or being a jerk or what ever. An NPC that hires Turner to kill off an evil cult. The NPCs speach is very stronge and full of funny sounding words, makes a few profound statments that make very little sence.

What do you think?
have you got any others?

I think the NPC's named after forum members or Overgrowth team members would actually be a good idea. If it were to happen it should only be noteworthy people though, like Jendraz or Silb. People who have made an actual solid contribution to the community.

Me or you could never be candidates because all we do is write dumb posts.

Can I be a candidate because I used to contribute a little bit?

Nah. It was worth a shot.

Maybe turner or another character say "stronge" at some point, then we can just pass it off as a typo.

Naming NPC's after contributing members of the community is indeed an excellent idea ... but would it conflict with these people when they actually wanted to play? :?

You flatter me. If there was an NPC with my name I think I would cry with joy.

What like...you're supposed to kill a guy in the game but he has your name so you have conflicting emotions about whether or not to kill him and then you die yourself? :lol:

If I understand correctly there's going to be towns in the game... so maybe some of the forums member's names could show up on some of the townspeople (I.E. forum members who pre-ordered would have a civilian NPC named after them...)

That's true... if you were in Online co-op and you come across an NPC with the same name as your guy that would be odd.

Another option is to just have references, such as maybe somewhere out in the desert portion of the world there's a ruined statue in the middle of nowhere with an engraving "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings. Look upon my works, ye mighty, and despair!" (However, that might not be taken as a forum member reference as it would be taken as a Percy Shelley reference...) Something that would work better, perhaps, would be a hidden book somewhere, like a journal maybe, and it makes references...

Well actualy I did make a chainsaw mod with a few levels in challange, but it never really lifted off.
I also (with a team effort with BunnyWithStick and Invertin) made a very strong RP/Fanfic that I hope gave some inspiration to the team (I still want to continue that story)

Lugaru Temple I never quite followed the story to but loved the desinge of the levels, but what if the Storys of the alternative campains were implemented as Hystory/Arcive/fiction/Biblical documents?
Considering Temple was on what looked like another island, there could be some referances to imply is existance as an obscured ancent island. Im also sure Silb implemented a charictor named Silb into his campain too (conferm this please).

If there are Universitys/places of higher learning There should be a referance to Bunny and Ren debating/arguing for laughs sakes.

Maybe they could add an NPC that's speech text is purple and bold because he wants to be different from all the other animals because he thinks he is special or something.
