UNDER THE WATCHFUL GAZE OF WADJET EYE...

primordia0001.jpg


WORMWOOD STUDIOS PRESENTS...

primordia0002.jpg


PRIMORDIA

(aka A Canticle for Roxorowicz)

primordia0003.jpg


Pressing start game causes the cute little butterfly (?) to fly away...

primordia0004.jpg


Towards this here wreckage.

primordia0005.jpg


Meanwhile, an ominous figure appears on an overlooking cliff...

primordia0006.jpg


(not this figure)

Meet Horatio Nelson. This here techpriest guy will be our main character.

primordia0007.jpg


primordia0008.jpg


And now meet Crispy Crispin. This here floating ball will be our chief sidekick.

primordia0009.jpg


primordia0010.jpg


crisp.jpg
Speaking of which, boss, I found exactly *none* of the parts you wanted. A whole day at the junk pile, and all I turn up are a locker and some stupid conduits. Maybe *next* time...

Suddenly, there's a loud shaking across the place

crisp.jpg
Uh, boss, are you *sure* you got those settings right?

Crispy is voiced by Rabbi Stone/Joey, btw

hor.jpg
That came from down in Engineering. Let's go!

primordia0016.jpg


There is no time to be lost!

primordia0017.jpg


Battle brothers!

primordia0018.jpg


Btw the walking animations for Horatio are REALLY weird.

primordia0019.jpg


Robot... thingies!

primordia0021.jpg


TODAY THE ENEMY IS AT OUR DOOR

primordia0022.jpg


primordia0023.jpg


primordia0024.jpg


WE KNOW OUR DUTY AND WE WILL DO IT.

hor.jpg
Who are you and what do you want?

primordia0026.jpg


crisp.jpg
[Intelligence] I think he wants the power core, boss.

primordia0028.jpg


CRIMINAL SCUM

primordia0029.jpg


YOUR STOLEN GOODS ARE NOW...

evilbot.jpg
FORFEIT. ENEMY. PLUNDER.

crisp.jpg
I don't think he's too keen on private property.

hor.jpg
Get away from the power core.

evilbot.jpg
FORFEIT!

primordia0036.jpg


shit

primordia0037.jpg


Good job, Horatio.

primordia0038.jpg


You fuck up not even 5 minutes into the game.

primordia0039.jpg


primordia0040.jpg


DECEPTICONS HAVE STOLEN THE MATRIX

primordia0041.jpg


primordia0042.jpg


And the ship goes dark.

primordia0043.jpg


The evil robot walks away into the sunset, while Horatio somehow gets ditched into a nearby field of scrap.

primordia0044.jpg


primordia0045.jpg


crisp.jpg
BOSS! Horatio? Come on, Horatio, wake up!

primordia0049.jpg


crisp.jpg
Whew! You're okay!

hor.jpg
What happened?

crisp.jpg
Well, big ugly threw you out of the ship. And then he said, "PLUNDER". Again. And then he left with our power core.

hor.jpg
B'sod.

crisp.jpg
Yep.

hor.jpg
How much charge have you got?

crisp.jpg
10%, you?

hor.jpg
I'll be fine. We just need to get the emergency generator up and running. I *told* you it needed to be repaired.

crisp.jpg
Or we could just go to Metropol, "The city of glass and light. Free energy for one and all!"

City of Light, huh. THIS IS SET IN THE AFTERFALL UNIVERSE :eek:

hor.jpg
Don't believe everything you hear. Metropol is trouble.

Chief programmer A. Tokaj has taught Horatio well

hor.jpg
But if you want to go, you've got free will and a mag-lev unit.

crisp.jpg
With that guilt subroutine you've put in me, I wouldn't even make it half way.

hor.jpg
Actually, with a 10% charge, you wouldn't even make it that far. So I suggest we get the generator working.

crisp.jpg
Sigh. You and your projects.

hor.jpg
Man built us to build, Crispin. Now, come on.

primordia0074.jpg


We get a Crispy icon in the hud. He'll be useful in many situations. He'll also be annoying.

primordia0075.jpg


We also grab this thingy here

hor.jpg
I must have dropped my data pouch when I was thrown out of the UNNIIC

primordia0077.jpg


hor.jpg
B'sod! Its memory got wiped. Easy enough to add the good old junkpile's coordinates back in though.

primordia0080.jpg


primordia0082.jpg


Two new icons on the hud. The map screen which you've seen just now.

primordia0083.jpg


And the data screen that

*gasp*

primordia0084.jpg


Collects various data.

There's nothing to find at the tailwing of the UNNIIC, Horatio claims he's pretty much stripped everything clean of useful parts here already, so we take a ride to the junkpile

primordia0085.jpg


This looks promising.

primordia0086.jpg


crisp.jpg
How do you think a train wound up around here, boss?

hor.jpg
Maybe they brought it here by boat.

crisp.jpg
Very funny

:troll:

primordia0090.jpg


O hey, fat loot box

hor.jpg
It's locked tight.

Curses, foiled again.

primordia0092.jpg


hor.jpg
There's a piece of Gordium conduit way back there. I can't reach the conduit.

primordia0095.jpg


Fly, little droid!

hor.jpg
Crispin, can you go in there and get that piece of conduit?

crisp.jpg
I suppose...

primordia0098.jpg


primordia0099.jpg


crisp.jpg
That would have been a lot easier with hands, boss.

primordia0102.jpg


Some more conduits lying around hier.

hor.jpg
It's three pieces of Gordium conduit. Unfortunately, one of them is completely corroded and worthless.

primordia0105.jpg


Let's get back to the ranch!

primordia0106.jpg


primordia0107.jpg


primordia0108.jpg


hor.jpg
It's the UNNIIC's tag. Without it, I'd have never known the ship's name.

crisp.jpg
Apparently, building a giant airship doesn't require proper spelling.

hor.jpg
Apparently not.

"UNNIIC" is quite obviously not what the tag said originally, and the letters must have weathered in time. Wonder what could be its true name.

No time for that, though, there's shit to fix.

primordia0113.jpg


Let's grab a cable.

primordia0115.jpg


And check this contraption.

primordia0116.jpg


hor.jpg
Crispin, when I told you to find a new spark plug, did you just shove my conductive putty into the old one?

crisp.jpg
Err, maybe.

hor.jpg
No wonder the generator isn't working. At least the putty is still good.

primordia0122.jpg


crisp.jpg
Now who's the procrastinator?

primordia0125.jpg


primordia0126.jpg


Another one to the collection.

Also, there's a really annoying bug with this generator. Sometimes, the zoom-in refuses to close, Horatio starts moving in a wonky way, and if you alt-tab, the friggin game crashes :x

primordia0128.jpg


Let's go up.

primordia0129.jpg


The cutesy butterfly (?) was lured by the glowlamp, desu desu ^___^

primordia0130.jpg


hor.jpg
What was I thinking leaving all my lanterns up there?

Crispy to the rescue!

hor.jpg
Could you grab that lantern?

crisp.jpg
Sure thing, boss.

primordia0134.jpg


hor.jpg
You know, I always wanted to be able to fly. That's why I built you with a mag-lev unit.

crisp.jpg
Not so that you could store tools on hard-to-reach ledges?

hor.jpg
Well, that too.

primordia0139.jpg


And that's the fifth conduit we'll need.

Let's go further up.

primordia0141.jpg


I want to have sex with those graphics.

hor.jpg
An old captain's chair. I moved it up here from navigation.

hor.jpg
A large observational telescope. Without power from the ship, the telescope won't work.

crisp.jpg
Bad timing with those repairs, huh, boss?

primordia0146.jpg


Clouds of Xeen.

crisp.jpg
Strange clouds, huh, boss?

primordia0148.jpg


hor.jpg
Only a sliver left before the moon wanes entirely.

crisp.jpg
Well, I'm glad we're not the only ones running out of power.

Trying to go down the hatch...

primordia0151.jpg


Fortunately, we are prepared in the event that our enemies would be so bold and so foolish

primordia0152.jpg


Placing numerous lanterns allows us to do multiple and simultaneous defensive deep strikes down the hatch.

primordia0153.jpg


primordia0154.jpg


hor.jpg
Bed-time reading.

primordia0156.jpg


hor.jpg
It couldn't hurt to bring the Gospel of Man with us.

crisp.jpg
Going to pray for a miracle, boss?

hor.jpg
*We* are Man's miracle, Crispin. Let's hope that's enough.

Let's see what we can find in this gospel...

5wfdix.jpg


:eek:

NOT THIS GOSPEL OF MAN

primordia0161.jpg


primordia0162.jpg


primordia0163.jpg


primordia0164.jpg


primordia0165.jpg


Cool.

Also, we take a look under the bed.

crisp.jpg
So *that's* where you keep it.

hor.jpg
Why were you looking for my plasma torch?

crisp.jpg
No reason *whistling*

o_ó

primordia0169.jpg


This is as far as we go for now.

However, now we can do some...

primordia0172.jpg


WELDIN'!!!!!

FIRST WE WELD OFF A PIECE OF THE CABLE

THEN

primordia0175.jpg


BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

primordia0177.jpg


WE WELD TOGETHER SUM CONDUITS

AHAHAHA GIMME MORE @_@

crisp.jpg
Wow, that was easier than I thought it would be.

YOU HAVE NO IDEA

AND YOU THINK I'M DONE?

HELL NO

primordia0179.jpg


HUEHUEHUEHUE

primordia0180.jpg


BUZZ BUZZ

crisp.jpg
Is that a spark plug, boss? Who locks up a spark plug?

hor.jpg
Err... actually, I think that box was some kind of a machine.

crisp.jpg
You killed it!

hor.jpg
*Recycled* it.

primordia0178.jpg


Now we can put the fused conduit in the socket.

primordia0187.jpg


As well as stick a spark plug in the gap.

primordia0188.jpg


And push the red switch!

primordia0189.jpg


Let there be light!

primordia0190.jpg


crisp.jpg
Phew, I thought we were in trouble when big ugly stole our power core. But just like that, problem solved.

hor.jpg
The problem is *not* solved.

crisp.jpg
Well, I agree, the noise leaves something to be desired.

hor.jpg
This is an emergency generator, Crispin.

crisp.jpg
Well, it *was* an emergency, boss.

hor.jpg
It only runs for a few days, if that.

crisp.jpg
Oh. Well, do we have another one?

hor.jpg
No. Which means it is *still* an emergency.

crisp.jpg
Well, in that case... First dibs on the recharge station!

primordia0203.jpg


primordia0204.jpg


crisp.jpg
So, what's the plan, boss?

hor.jpg
We need to recover our power core.

crisp.jpg
Or we could just take the train to Metropol and live in luxury!

hor.jpg
First of all, there is no train to Metropol, and, second, even with full charges, we can't just walk there. But more importantly... I hate that city. It's in my core logic. I don't know why, but I can't change it.

crisp.jpg
Okay, okay. In that case, can't you just make us a new power core?

hor.jpg
Yes. But I need some kind of strong energy source for that.

crisp.jpg
Can't you just make one of those too? I'm just asking!

hor.jpg
No. But somewhere around here are the plans for an energy sensor.

crisp.jpg
That's awfully convenient.

Yes :rpgcodex:

hor.jpg
I designed it a long time ago, before I made you. I even found a sodium iodide crystal to use in the sensor, though Man alone knows where it's buried now.


Aaaaand that's all for today, folks. Next update, we'll try to look for a new power core... and embark on an EPIC QUEST FOR VENGEANCE, to COLLAR GRAB a bunch of EVIL ROBOTS that STOLE OUR TITS ENERGY.

STAY TUNED!

Also, Primordia has achievements! Here's what we've managed to achieve thus far.

I want to follow this Let's Play but I also intend to play the game and I'm afraid of possible spoilers. I guess I'll "read" until the point where the demo ended and then wait to play the game.
Anyway great job, I liked the humorous parts.

Manguy, this looks simply delicious. What? Of course I didn't lick the screen! That's just an... uhm, undried spot left after I cleaned it, yeah.

Should I play or should I read the LP? Hm...

Anyway, :incline:

Oh shit, a lp of this game! Sadly, I won't be able to read much as I wish to play the game after trying the demo. But I don't trust online purchases, even though it is really a tempting offer as the game deserves it... What should I do?

Whatever, let's do something else:

Btw the walking animations for Horatio are REALLY weird.

Well duh, he's a robot. Also, you forgot to comment that if you use the ladder while the ship is out of power, it triggers a funny dialogue between Horatio and Crispin.
primordia0006.jpg


primordia0019.jpg

primordia0040.jpg

I insist that Horatio and the Power Source remind me of Wakfu's Nox and the Eliacube, have a look:

2738291.jpg
index.php

Nox, a quite awesome villain that is obsessed with tinkering with his power source. Both Horatio and Nox won't stop at nothing to get what they want and IMO they have awesome voice actors.

And the Eliacube:

eliacube.jpg

salle_10.jpg

A glowing power source as well.

Could be anything. HORUS? Who knows. We'll see... maybe?

Cool! Is this game is as good as the other wadjet games?

Well, it's pretty much exactly like the other Wadjet games so far. Puzzles are a bit easy-ish, but the writing is cool enough, graphix GORGEOUS, atmosphere great, soundtrack lovely and the production qualities generally pretty high.

Now if only Horatio would say 'futile' properly - it's 'fiutyle', not 'fiutl', kwafags :rpgcodex:

Time to embark on a quest for an energy detecting thingy!

Maybe the schematics are around these papers?

hor.jpg
Crispin, why is your diary still scattered across the floor?

crisp.jpg
Are you going to keep nagging me until we run out of power, boss?

hor.jpg
Yes.

Guess not. The books then?

hor.jpg
A collection of product manuals, how-to guides and technical treatises.

crisp.jpg
Do you think the sensor design might be in there?

hor.jpg
No, these are all books I scavenged.

:(

primordia0234.jpg


Let's see if there's anything here in the... bridge, I guess?

primordia0235.jpg


hor.jpg
That record player was a good find, Crispin.

crisp.jpg
I still think you should have let me have its arm.

hor.jpg
I'm pretty sure that arm came from a sewing machine... on second thought, maybe I should have let you have it.

The phonograph plays some jazzlike (?) tune I don't recognise. It mutes the ambient music, though, which is a big no-no, cuz the ambient music is gr8.

primordia0240.jpg


There's also this radio here.

primordia0241.jpg


It keeps pushing out Metropol propaganda about INFINITE ENERGY and stuff. It's got a dial that doesn't change the channel

and a power plug we can snatch.

hor.jpg
I bet I can find a better use for this plug.

crisp.jpg
But now we can't listen to the sweet voice of Metropol.

hor.jpg
I guess that makes two birds

:thumbsup:

primordia0245.jpg


We also snatch this LCD screen.

primordia0246.jpg


And check these papers lying around for anything useful.

hor.jpg
I found this in the dunes. It reads: "Pounds pastrami, can kraut, six bagels - bring home for Emma".

:thumbsup:

Another one:

hor.jpg
It's Crispin's to-do list. Funny how it never gets any shorter.

crisp.jpg
That's *your* fault, boss, not mine.

primordia0250.jpg


A-ha!

hor.jpg
I'll put the key-notes into my datapouch.

crisp.jpg
How does it even work?

hor.jpg
The crystal pulses when it absorbs energy. The cable carries the pulse to the computer. The computer decodes the information and displays it on the monitor.

crisp.jpg
Err, boss, where are we going to find a working computer?

hor.jpg
The UNNIIC is full of them.

crisp.jpg
Oh. Right.

hor.jpg
The energy sensor requires a sodium iodide crystal connected to a cable, which in turn needs to be connected to a CPU and a monitor.

Roight. Better get on to finding this stuff. There's one more blueprint here tho.

hor.jpg
The original designs for Crispin.

crisp.jpg
Hey, there are arms here! And an awesome set of tractor treads!

hor.jpg
I went with a mag-lev unit instead. And I could never find good arms.

Time to start assembling:

primordia0266.jpg


First, we put the conductive putty on the cut cable part.

primordia0267.jpg


Then place the radio plug on it. Now we just need the crystal... wherever it is.

primordia0268.jpg


primordia0269.jpg


And this will be our computor + display.

Moving to the right...

primordia0271.jpg


We find a huge rift in the hull.

primordia0272.jpg


And a rag blowing in the wind.

Of course, it flies away when Horatio tries to deftly take it. Retard.

crisp.jpg
Wow, first the power core and now a rag. This is not your day.

shrug

moving on

primordia0275.jpg


Looks like nothing to be found here in the bedroom...

... or is there?

primordia0284.jpg


Every now and then something glitters in this niche.

hor.jpg
Aha! There's the crystal.

crisp.jpg
Right under our noses. That is, if we had noses. Are you really trying to build us an energy source from a bunch of garbage?

hor.jpg
Crispin, I built *you* from a bunch of garbage.

crisp.jpg
From spare parts, boss, spare parts!

primordia0291.jpg


Plugging the crystal into the cable gives us the sensor.

hor.jpg
Well, just goes to show. Garbage in, greatness out.

primordia0294.jpg


primordia0295.jpg


primordia0296.jpg


Plugging in the sensor gives 6 rows of numbers.

hor.jpg
The sensor is detecting energy at these coordinates. Now we just need to check them out.

crisp.jpg
But didn't you just tell me we didn't have enough power to go walking all over the dunes?

hor.jpg
No, I said we couldn't go to *Metropol*. Anyway, most of these are close by.

crisp.jpg
But what if it's picking up, oh, I dunno... a radioactive rust-monster...

hor.jpg
A what?

crisp.jpg
Or a giant cannibal robot...

hor.jpg
There is no such thing!

crisp.jpg
Or an unexploded bomb...

hor.jpg
I highly doubt that.

crisp.jpg
Or a giant lightning storm...

hor.jpg
OKAY! You're right. We need to know what's out there before we take off. It's just a matter of figuring out how.

crisp.jpg
Why is nothing easy?

hor.jpg
I can think of one reason.

Durr.

I know just the place to let us scout ahead

primordia0316.jpg


primordia0317.jpg


Would you like to look through my telescope?

primordia0318.jpg


Here we insert the coordinates.

primordia0319.jpg


hor.jpg
Metropol is nothing but trouble.

Right. Next!

primordia0321.jpg


Next!

crisp.jpg
Uhm, boss?

primordia0323.jpg


hor.jpg
It looks *promising* is what it looks like.

crisp.jpg
"And with that, poor, doomed Horatio stuck his head into the giant's mouth."

primordia0326.jpg


Ding! Location unlocked.

Next!

primordia0327.jpg


hor.jpg
Maybe we should go look more carefully.

That's a 2nd location then. Next!

hor.jpg
Nothing but waste.

primordia0329.jpg


hor.jpg
Scrap isn't waste.

NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEXT

primordia0332.jpg


crisp.jpg
Uh, boss, that's because the telescope is pointing straight down at the deck.

hor.jpg
Oh.

Oops.

NEEEEEEXT

hor.jpg
Strange.

primordia0336.jpg


hor.jpg
Whatever that machine is, it must be throwing off some kind of energy.

crisp.jpg
Why do I not like the sound of this?

primordia0339.jpg


Ding! New location unlocked. Third to check out.

And that are all the coordinates.

primordia0340.jpg


But before we leave...

primordia0341.jpg


We grab the elusive rag.

crisp.jpg
Hopefully, finding the power core will be just as easy!

hor.jpg
I doubt it.

:(

To the junkpile!

primordia0344.jpg


Hm...

primordia0345.jpg


That is a point :M

WE'LL BE BACK LATER

primordia0346.jpg


To the giant robot mobile!

primordia0347.jpg


hor.jpg
Man's creation...!

primordia0349.jpg


Well, this looks promising.

crisp.jpg
That is one big robot.

hor.jpg
Then it must have a big power core.

crisp.jpg
I'm pretty sure he wants to eat me, boss.

hor.jpg
Robots don't eat, Crispin.

crisp.jpg
But look how he's staring at me!

hor.jpg
It's not staring at anything.

crisp.jpg
No, not yet, anyway.

hor.jpg
Well, we have to find a way to get its power core. Let's look around.

hor.jpg
Is that a mouth or some kind of doorway?

crisp.jpg
Either way, I'm steering clear of it.

Let's send Crispy off to the nose.

hor.jpg
Crispin, help me take a look at these vents.

primordia0361.jpg


Intredasting.

Well, what's more to be found here

primordia0362.jpg


A giant finger. Wooo.

hor.jpg
It's corroded, but I couldn't break it with my bare hands.

This means only one thing.

PLASMA TOOOOOOOOORCH

crisp.jpg
Uh, boss, are you really going to cut that finger off?

hor.jpg
Just the tip.

crisp.jpg
Why?

hor.jpg
BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD To see if we get at power cables to tap into.

crisp.jpg
You're sure you're not just torturing the poor guy?

hor.jpg
No. But to tell you the truth, for some reason I don't like the looks of him.

crisp.jpg
That's what I've been saying all along boss!

hor.jpg
Just let me concentrate.

BUZZ BUZZ BUZZ

primordia0374.jpg


hor.jpg
All that for a rusty finger tip.

crisp.jpg
Can it generate power?

hor.jpg
No.

crisp.jpg
Just checking.

Well, what shall we do with this finger?

primordia0379.jpg


Yup, stick it up the wanker's nose :smug:

primordia0380.jpg


It still takes in air through the second hole, though. Let's try to stuff it with the rag.

hor.jpg
Can you try pushing this rag into the vent?

crisp.jpg
Seriously? *Sigh* so much for getting buffed. ... He keeps blowing it out every time I try to shove it in.

Which does beg the question. How does Crispy carry the rag and the finger? o_O

Anyway, the rag needs to be made sticky.

...

NO, we won't use the method you are thinking about, asshole.

primordia0386.jpg


Grease will do just as well.

primordia0390.jpg


primordia0391.jpg


Lovely.

crisp.jpg
Well, boss, you did it again.

hor.jpg
In we go.

crisp.jpg
We?

hor.jpg
Oh, by the hand of Man, come on!

crisp.jpg
I'm telling you boss, that thing wants to eat me.

hor.jpg
Crispin...

crisp.jpg
Fine. But you go first.

primordia0400.jpg


Uh.

primordia0401.jpg


alpha.jpg
We were two...

alpha.jpg
...parts of the great...

hor.jpg
The great what?

alpha.jpg
That data...

alpha.jpg
... is lost.

hor.jpg
Well, I am Horatio Nullbuilt, version 5.

alpha.jpg
Now we are...

alpha.jpg
Now we are...

alpha.jpg
Alpha...

alpha.jpg
... and Beta.


alpha.jpg
More...

alpha.jpg
... or less.

crisp.jpg
Boss, I'm pretty sure these guys took one EMP blast too many along the line.

That is possible.

primordia0415.jpg


Not much of interest here, except for a non-working elevator, and this deactivated keypad.

Let's pester the bots.

primordia0417.jpg


hor.jpg
What happened to you?

alpha.jpg
Virus...

alpha.jpg
... Doom...

alpha.jpg
... Escape...

alpha.jpg
... too much data...

alpha.jpg
... too little memory...

alpha.jpg
... back incomplete...

alpha.jpg

MADNESS




These two robots are cool. The complementary talking and sudden outbursts make them really sound mad.

crisp.jpg
You got that right.

I'm looking for a big robot - it floats and has large claws and shoots lasers. Have you seen it? It stole something of mine.

Sigh. Do you have a power core?

Er, boss, is it just me, or did Alpha just stop being crazy?

Okay, enough.

crisp.jpg
So they need Gamma in order to defragment themselves and return to a single entity?

hor.jpg
Since when do you speak crazy?

crisp.jpg
I've spent my whole life with a hermit who worships a mythological machine called Man. I'd say "crazy" is my first language.

hor.jpg
Where is Gamma?

Can't get to him "below" without the elevator running, though.

hor.jpg
How can I use the elevator?

alpha.jpg
Loading key code database. BOMB DETONATION PREFIX: 6.

o_O

crisp.jpg
*WHAT* Prefix?

alpha.jpg
Elevator code: 9876

crisp.jpg
Wow, these guys could learn a thing or two about security.

Sounds like the login to the site of the potato prime minister :troll:

But the keypad is deactivated.

Goodbye.

Alright, THAT was enlightening.

There's a hatch in the ceiling. Let's have Crispy scout.

hor.jpg
Crispin, go up there and scout around.

crisp.jpg
Do I have to?

hor.jpg
Yes.

...

crisp.jpg
There's a big brain up there throwing off a lot of sparks, and some little bot flying around. He's really annoying.

Time to improvise a rope.

primordia0526.jpg


hor.jpg
Crispin, can you find something to tie this to up there through the hatch?

crisp.jpg
Sure thing, boss.

primordia0529.jpg


Great.

primordia0530.jpg



Hello there.

Crispy comments on the robot flying above.

crisp.jpg
Look at him, floating around like he owns the place.

To which Horatio only shakes his head :thumbsup:

primordia0532.jpg


The robot says some single words backwards, like METSYS and TOOBER.

primordia0534.jpg


Time to dig through the robot's brain and take all the bad things out.

primordia0535.jpg


Hm, some buttons and shit.

primordia0536.jpg


ó_o

primordia0537.jpg


Let's try to apply those numbers to the panel, where 1 = click button, 0 = don't click.

crisp.jpg
Hey, look boss, the brain stopped sparkling

Obviously o_@

"UOY KNAHT" says the floating drone. Let's go down to ALPHA and BETA.

primordia0541.jpg


The elevator should be working now.

primordia0543.jpg


primordia0544.jpg


Presto, bitches.

primordia0545.jpg


Hmmm. What part of the robot would this be? The design doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

hor.jpg
This must be Gamma.

crisp.jpg
He looks dead.

hor.jpg
You're right. It's completely deactivated. That may make things difficult.

crisp.jpg
Anything worth taking?

hor.jpg
No. And even if there were, we aren't thieves.

crisp.jpg
I dunno boss, something about this one seems off.

Shrug.

primordia0555.jpg


Let's check out this one working monitor.

crisp.jpg
Look boss, there's something on this monitor!

gamma.jpg
Who is this slave my brothers send to trouble me?

:eek:

hor.jpg
Gamma.

gamma.jpg
Last, last, last. They'd call me Omega if they could. But am I also the greatest? Alpha has only diagnostics, Beta has only mechanical operations. Am I not the SOUL of the Goliath?

If he sang the blues, you'd want to listen.

hor.jpg
I think Alpha and Beta want you to join with them.

gamma.jpg
They have already groveled and begged, but I will not return.

hor.jpg
Why?

gamma.jpg
Independence is freedom. Union is slavery.

hor.jpg
Well, fair enough. But Alpha and Beta are far too crazy to enslave anyone. You'd probably end up in charge.

gamma.jpg
Flattery. What is your stake in this?

hor.jpg
Your brothers said that you might give me a power core and might know a robot I'm hunting.

gamma.jpg
Help? HA! Each robot must stand alone! Independence is freedom!

Got a complaint in the system.

crisp.jpg
And here I thought he was the sane one.

hor.jpg
You need to rejoin your brothers. For your sake and mine.

gamma.jpg
You'll have to catch me, slave!

primordia0578.jpg


Uh, suddenly all the monitor flash up.

The thing is, Gamma is hiding in a random one, and you have to pinpoint him. If you succeed, he demands you to do it again to eliminate random probability. If you fail, he mocks you.

There's nothing we have now that can pinpoint his location however. We'll have to get back here later.

primordia0580.jpg


Sup.

hor.jpg
I found Gamma, but he refuses to come out of hiding.

I can see why he doesn't want the company.

hor.jpg
I fixed the brain up there.

alpha.jpg
system rebooted. Higher reasoning unavailable. Please reload GOLIATH operating matrix. Thank you.

alpha.jpg
Gamma?

alpha.jpg
Gamma.

hor.jpg
Goodbye.


primordia0607.jpg


And that was very much all we could do for now in this... Goliath. But we'll be back.

Next stop - 3rd useful coordinates, the 'strange device'. What will it be? Lightning storm? RADIOACTIVE RUST-MONSTER?

STAY TUNED TO FIND OUT.

That was a lot of fucking typing.

The protagonist is more humane than the average Kwanstain manboon.
