April fools? Nah.

by

Yesterday was April Fools, and I kinda forgot to update this blog yesterday. Sorry ’bout that.

I’m not really into this April Fools kind of thing. Sure, it’s fun to start a minor prank and watch the show. I don’t mind any of that. Making a little lie, a small practical joke here and there, no problem. A good laugh is required now and then, right?

Then, some up it to another notch. Make something a little implausible happen. I’ll give an example. A year ago, a saw this trailer on youtube about the classic game, Legend of Zelda, being turned into a movie.

And there was also this Pacman movie trailer as well.

People got a few good laughs out of these ‘movie trailers’ and jokes on what if they were real.

However, another notch up is where I draw the line. It’s when the highly plausible happens. When it’s within the grasp of others. Such as a certain fan-made game.

See, last year, I saw a trailer of a doujin game based on Touhou. It was made to be sort of a crossover between Disgaea combat system and Touhou characters. The character graphics wasn’t the best, but the gameplay itself looked very attractive and appealing.


And it was all just an April Fool’s joke.

These people make half a game engine with awesomeness like this. And thought it’d be a great idea to use this as a joke.

I had my hopes high, and it was burst with a few words.

I’m not saying that I hate April Fools or anything, but I would seriously hope that these 3rd stages jokes really do come true in some way.
