    It's going to be such an easy way out of all this if it all just is a dream.
    Don't do it xamllew, don't make it all a dream.

    Agreed, if this was all a dream then it'd be a bit weird...

    He needs to grab on to the other guy, jump on top of him, then if they land in water the knife dude will die or if they land on the ground the knife dude will just pancake on to the ground, and Tom will be fine!!!

    ...


    *Takes puff from pipe* And so goes the tale of our dear friend Tom. But really, sorry guys, I lack the motivation required to keep up with Tom. Perhaps I'll continue Fantastic Journey some day but for now I'll leave it to you to decide what happened to Tom after his rescue. I had a lot of ideas for this and I really meant to get around to that tower, shit, oh well, I had fun making up Fantastic Journey.

    Yes, I did have a partner for Tom planned.
    Yes, burning that bridge dramatically changed the storyline.
    No, the fall wasn't a dream.
    Yes, I know that ending sucked.

    Well, thank you guys for reading. It would have ended a lot sooner if it weren't for ya. :love:

    Well for one, he didn't die in the fire, I had planned to have the armored man make a return in the Cafheed town, possibly blowing Tom's cover and getting him sent to jail, he was a hired mercenary warrior specializing in defense against overgrown frogs (hence the enormous sword), there were actually supposed to be many of them protecting the mayor and somewhere along the line I was planning on having a frog slayed.

    The frogs are...just big frogs. They weren't a heavy plot piece and after leaving Mars they would've been replaced with some other creature.

    The "God of Pain" was supposed to kill Tom but then I thought that I might like returning to do this again some day.

    I don't want to say anything about the tower as I might come back to it, if I do I promise it'll be weird.

    Oh yea, his name was Len and he was an amateur chemist living in the Cafheed outskirts, very willing to go out on adventure after Tom were to sneak in his house. He was going to have some bombs to bring along.

    I had a lot more item sprites and characters before my old hard drive died.

    I can't really blame you for quitting, I've done stuff like this before and I know what a toll they can take of you when it becomes a chore to do.

    Personally I like the end, it leaves it up to everyone to decide what they think what happened with Tom and like you say, it leaves a possibility for Tom to come back and finish this thing.

    I really like this picture by the way :


    It would look really awesome as a wallpaper, only thing that needs to be changed is the motion blur and the other man falling.

    Well, thanks for your effort and time. I've really enjoyed reading this and keeping up with it!
    A wallpaper would be great, but Archiad has to be on it too! Hopefully you will change your mind and continue shortly..

    I wish it didn't have to end man.

    I want to do something related to this but I don't think I could make such cool backgrounds and sprites.

    also I just noticed, Toms computer went blue screen on him when the door slammed

    This is about the only story on here I've kept up reading. I'm sure we could carry this on between us but it would probably end up and a pile of blood and rape.

    Awesome thread. 10/10

    Here's yer stinkin' desktop, take it or leave it.

    I tried to fit everyone into the frame, unfortunately the beast got the short end of the deal. I only made one resolution.

    I just realized I have a very small monitor.
