Finally caught up on Between 2 worlds and completed it.
Yep... Also, Fainting spells REALLY rocks. It's not one of those typical fantasy comics nor is it about elves, dragons and the like. It's really surreal but very interesting as you accompany the protagonist throughout her journey.
Totally light on the story but I just love the humor. And Hassan leaves me speechless.
Hassan: "What's with the face?" Murphy: "You do realize the flaw in your plan, don't you? Canadian geography 101... Saskatchewan is landlocked. A ferry won't do anything, genius." Hassan: "Tch... details."

Yeah it was pretty good and awesome, although I didn't like how certain important characters got killed off so easily, just to preserve the storyline. I think the story might've been stronger if they'd been there until the end even though the creator changed the emphasis on the "daily happenings of a group of folks" to "the great happenings and the story of a civilisation".
Still... it was good. Although I'll try the other stories by the author another time.

Huh, sounds good, EK: I need a break from LS before my head spins from that massive data overload of infinite characters and surprising plot-twists. (Just when you think you'd got the next twist down pat, the plot throws you off again.)

It isn't just awesome, it's just damn brilliant in the application of various strategies and aspects of war and the villains are mostly just people stuck in the wrong path. Had they been in other careers and were more positive, heck... their countries would've really prospered, I think.
Yes. that's what I love about it myself. I could live without a lot of the fighting, easily. It's the story and the characters that engage me. The writer absolutely understand how to create believable motives and credible character.
I've played many, many games I paid money for that are inferior to it.

Heh... yeah, the fighting: so much keyboard mashing. Oh well... I guess I can't complain too much about that. RPGmaker is one of the few low cost game engine tools that're probably suitable for indie developers. I think there're AGS, GameMaker, WinterMute and a few other engines but if I'm not wrong, RPGMaker is the most suitable for a RPG game since most of the others concentrate more on "adventure games".
Anyways, I emailed Scf and asked him if he's going to create a new game. I really hope he will.
And oh man, now that I got my own transportation in LS, it's a lot easier than going alll the way back to Lunei Village and pleading with said dude to gimme a ride.

EK: On further investigation, here's a list of games created by him. (EDit: apparently, the new one is a demo of a game to be released in Q3 2008. Well maybe not Q3, given how there's not much news about it and how there's no site.)
At any rate, to the maker of Last Scenario: WHEN IS YOUR NEW GAME COMING OUT?
Q3 2008 at best . Last Scenario took exactly a year to finish, with two more months of playtesting, and I expect Exit Fate to be even more work. I'm currently maybe 1/5th through the story, which isn't a lot, but a lot of time was spent on writing the battle system and other custom stuff. In any case, it'll take a good while.
