Tonight we created a “dictionary unbullshifier” script to clean up a word list we found and decipher those cryptic ‘p.p. & a.’ type things you see in the parts of speech indicator. I think this would become “past participle” and “adverb” in the “actually is:” boxes, but I’m not the Master Linguist so we’ll find out next time when Bri and I work through the list!
Of note though is that there’s definitely a lot of human error in this dictionary! Did you know there’s no ISO standard for english and errors enter datasets all the time?!
Also Bri is very fond of saying “Parts of speech are all made up.”
@bengrue so I’m not working on any VERGE games techincally… unless updating old ika games sorta counts? In which case I still intend to finish updating Winter with its rebalancing. Currently I am working on a little 2d topdown Starship sim in Godot, mostly just to try and learn more about how it works! It’s turning into a good exercise.
I would love to get back to the Verge museum project and get more games working and added to it. Maybe soon!
v2 - eldritch05 - You Only Live Thrice
v2 - eldritch05 - The Guy Who Mugged Me
Both of these were HoV contest entries I created with my step-brother. If I recall correctly, You Only Live Thrice’s system was exceedingly simplistic. The Guy Who Mugged Me’s system was somewhat more complex and correspondingly more buggy.
v3 - eldritch05 - Epic of Serinor
v3 - eldritch05 - Epic of Serinor: Legacy of Llygam
The Epic of Serinor game from the early 2000’s used a fully turn-based system as opposed to Dawnshadow’s more active system. (I’ve since added an “Age of Heroes” subtitle onto the old game/story in my notes to distinguish it from all the other Serinor stories I have.) Legacy of Llygam was another HoV entry (I think? It was some time-limited contest, because it was released unfinished.) and uses a Might and Magic first-person sort of system.
