How about we discuss the hack at large.
This hack was started about the time I finished it's sister hack, "f*ck Dick Nazi Random Offensive Word Tetris". It shares many of the same themes. Genocide being the main one. The AIDS pandemic that wiped out mankind was manmade, and not the result of a certain penile organization. Who or what is responsble for it is yet to be revealed, but when it is, everything that has happened in every hack I've made prior will make more sense.
Like several other hacks I've done, I went out of my way to make the hack feel dreary and strange. No longer do you have the cheery atmosphere of Dr. Mario. You boot the game and you see this man, clearly upset and on the verge of giving up. Just standing there motionless. An aids virus dancing in place screaming "get aids".
There is no music to speak of on the title screen. Just a short Bzzt that occurs every few seconds. When you reach the menu, you are assaulted with various phrases meant to make yoj feel uneasy. The gameplay is the same, but the plot takes advantage of the lack of an actual ending. No matter how much you play, you will never ever truly win against AIDS. The in game music is a cocophony of noise meant to make you feel nervous. In the track "laugh" you can even hear the AIDS viruses laughing at you as you try in vain to stop them. once you return to the menu after losing, youll notice that the menu is now shaking and the music has become a dull roar of notes. This is to simulate the pain in knowing that youve just killed someone on accident.
New project, inspired by one of the suggestions in the hack ideas thread.
Plus I always like to see the original games done too as to see how they were and what was changed between versions. That way one could if they want play the original and then compare it to the remake to see how it changed. Hence why we'll probably do the second one as well eventually.
