  1. At orz: ಠ_ಠ
  2. If you already understand that, then why so whiny? :rolleyes:

    because you are trying to make it look like it is not the case come on rosti you do not need to be so coy with me
  4. Wait, does this mean we can no longer post records?

  6. You are a tad trolly today so I will wait on another confirmation.
  7. I'm not trying to do that. I'm trying to present the rational side of this and saying that things aren't as bad as you guys are making out, nor is this as utterly stupid and pointless a thing to do as it may seem to be on the surface.

    This place is run by commie Canadians and Europeans, obviously your so-called "freedom of speech" isn't going to mean a fucking thing in this place.
  8. You guys need to chill. You're so in love with your second hand game concepts that you're missing the big picture.

    Can I at least post old scores? I have some scores from a few months back...
  10. NullpoMino actually has two original modes already: Phantom Mania and Retro Mastery. Admittedly, they are fairly directly based on official games, but that's at least a step in the right direction, wouldn't you say?
  11. Non-clone records are still fine. I'm assuming you're talking about TAP records rather than Texmaster ones.

    Phantom Mania is Death with invisible and a few extra trappings. I don't know how well that qualifies. Retro Mastery is a lot more original in what it offers.

    phantom mania takes a little bit much from tgm don't you guys think
  13. It hasn't fallen far from the tree, that's for sure. Nullpomino hasn't exactly been the Shimizu or DTET of our generation.
  14. Hmmm, apologies if this is a stupid question, but what about Lockjaw records (40 lines, 180 seconds, etc...)? Will those be forbidden to discuss too? Is Lockjaw considered a TGM clone?

    Actually it would be fairly simple to create a solid, simple clone, instead of something that can be tweaked to all heck.

    I suspect the clones are the way they are to keep them away from those who do not wish to take the red pill, and thus not bring down the wrath of TTC as much.

    TTC has a vision that is fundamentally different from us "serious" players. Somewhere along the road it was decided Tetris needed to become a casual game. This is what got us 7 piece bag, SRS, and infinity. They are not very receptive to anything that will scare off the casual gamers who give them the bulk of their money.

    The only way to stop them from making broken tetris is to convince them that their current player base will prefer something else to broken tetris. You got any ideas?

  18. From IRC yesterday:

    <Rosti> I'd quite like if they released a different version
    <Rosti> that just had all the clone stuff stripped out
  19. Okay time to start playing KeyBlox again.

    o wait that's a clone of Typomino/Typing Tetromino.

  20. So... would a Tetris game that uses Ti ARS, but none of the scoring, timings, gradings, etc be okay? I mean... the innovations of ARS seem to be its clever, simple wall kicks, floorkicks, and IRS/IHS. The Ghost piece too, perhaps, but my game doesn't have that right now since it's pretty much always at some 20G speed. Sega rotation by itself has appeared in many other official Tetris games. 20G is from Shimizu Tetris... etc.

    So is ANY Tetris clone no matter what banned? The first post says you look forward to original games, and I certainly also make original games that have nothing to do with Tetris... but this being Tetris concept and all :sneaky:

    I ask because I'm working on something similar to the above, and it works, but it's not really "pretty" enough for me to release at this time. Just wondering if I could perhaps make a topic for it here during the ban, if it ever did become "pretty enough".

    Edit: I do realize there was some discussion about this sorta thing earlier with Retro mania/Phantom Mania. But I don't feel like there was a definite yes, maybe because I'm expecting an answer directly from colour_thief? *shrug*
