Not going to lick the ass of johnny, all thou he deserves to call him self a good author. Especially cos I say so, further more I enjoy the stile of his games. It was a very pleasurable experience becoming Jack French, nice change from my recent hobby "escape the room" games. From which I started to feel trapped, angry and confused when incapable to finally escape THE room....just recently decided to write something on this forum at first (still angry from my incapability to complete Motas "green wall")write something nasty be cos of the delays in JF3, but today when I'm fully mentally stable I re-thought the previous idea and decided to start a new topic about the all ready existing JF games. So here it goes.. starting from the Paradise all the way up to hell gates. Paradise was like nothing I played before, it opened my eyes to for me new type of games. Criminal investigations, death, murderers- what a wicked Paradise. There was something not right with the plot thou, like when the famous politician gave Jack( a guy who claimed to be a detective) just like that the rest of the photos. If the politician was so afraid of the photos, wouldn't he demand from Jack to give him the photos Jack previously encounter? Unless of course he knew Jack from his reputation?... or even may be met him some where before ? But that should have been added in the dialogues some how. should en it? (and if it was and Ive missed it then tough). Another thing but this time from Dr Ferrer game, the head of the pathologist it was not proportional to the rest of her body. Sadly at the end I want to ad that I will play these two games again, with the pen and paper hoping to find some loose screws, just to productively waist my time waiting patiently for Jack French 3.
You are right that a politician would never give pics like that... at least not without taking extreme safety measures. However, this is useless in the game, doesn't change the outcome and I don't think the player really wants to go through all sorts of realistic but cumbersome details like that... they rather want to cut to the point in order for the game to progress.
As for Dr. German, I wanted him to look long and slim.
But the real reason I am responding to your post is to apologize for the delays in Episode 3. I know that many of you are waiting (for what seems an eternity ) but I honestly do the best I can. The multiple on-going projects are a lot to handle... and this is in addition of my day job, family as well as social life.
Publishing free games comes at a hefty price: delays, not being able to completely dedicate myself to the game everyday, etc. That being said, thanks to those who contributed and sent comments, that's what keeps me going and keeps me motivated.
Johnny I hate to see you cry, be a man, don't apologise, just say when the game can be expected (the date given should be with few weeks to spear so you will have a safety cushion).
Useless? well that hurts I've been trying to ....well be mean Its my way of helping and I really did believed that creators like to hear about ALL possible mishaps in the game, but now I stand corrected.
ps. Thanks to you I now know what cumbersome means
"It was a cold day of November I was on my way to the crime scene ...." where 2 officers were to dumb to find an opened window in the next room? Lets focus on that window for a minute shall we, but wait we cant cos there ain't any window frame there nor even a glass. What happened to that mysterious window did it magically changed into plunger? Maybe, but what about the door? If the door was locked from the inside wouldn't it had to be broken down to open and if so why there aren't any traces of justified usage of force on them? In the most lame scenario the 2 cops went to the room through what else "the window". Next thing that is the most noticeable the teddy bear and the poster of animé was that to indicate that she was immature? Well the image of a striper playing with her bear on the bed, will hunt me forever and if I were a lesbian I wouldn't raise that problem. Another object in the room worth noticing is the cell phone if you click redial button you will get a number of Sandra, but when you click menu you will get what else the number of Sandra. While were on the dresser the various resits indicates a lots of shopping, a lot of shopping demands many shopping bags. Where all that green presidents went then? She gave it all for 2 dvds and a watch? What about the make up, as a striper she has to know how to properly use lip gloss, eye liner and something that I personally hate mainly cos it ruins such a nice look as showed in the game-the water proof mascara. Now for a fun part a question: does tetany-constant muscle contractions caused by alpha-latrotoxin ends after the death? If not Jack wouldn't be capable of taking the medicine from her hand. Where's the bucket one of the symptoms of poisoning is nausea and vomiting....and know the question totally unrelated, she didn't had a bathroom why? ....The rest of the game will be examined tomorrow.
The only thing that I remember from "Cheers" series is the title, which looks at me from my book shelf written on one of the beer mugs. What "Cheers" has to do with Nami Ito apart from being undoubtedly British, well the only photo in her apartment shows her wearing UK school uniform(I had to check that one out, funny thing is when googling "UK school uniform" you will most likely end up on some sex related site). School blazer with school crest or logo, plain white shirt, school tie, black or grey trousers or skirt(are these skirts really so low cut?) inside those cloths Nami next to her right apparently her father with all of that green background creating a nice looking composition in one of the easy noticeable places in the room. What are the ods that Sandra her best and possibly the only friend, whom she known for 2 years never been in Nami apartment or never asked about the only picture she exposed in her room. Sandra while interrogated admitted that she dose not know about Nami having parents or relatives.(the number of hers apartment is 23 just like the number of the Nana locker) Moving in time and space to the "Paradise", searching through t gentlemen's club VIP rooms. Finding a stripper which started the conversation with laments about her unpaid parking tickets indicating that way her ownership of a car? If she owns a car why does she rides a cab? (o.k I could believe that her car was taken in custody cos she couldn't pay for her parking tickets)...17 cameras a couple of door men and no one sow a fat limousine driver taking a photo of a famous politician and why French didn't ask if he can check the cameras?((Mario had a red tie just like Nami from the picture) citalopram-antidepressant, chlozapine or clozapine-used in schizophrenia treatment) ....The things I liked in the game will be examined tomorrow
Playing "paradise" over and over again makes me sick even while only thinking of doing it again. Taking that into consideration I've decided to make it the last post about JF1, tomorrow Ill start with Dr Ferrer. Can you feel it? Can you feel nostalgia in the air? Well I can(but maybe there is just something wrong with me ) I should start with congratulating on the chosen music but I wont( as I said there is just something wrong with me-to many times I've listen to that music to be able to appreciate it). Don't despair cos there are thing that I enjoy even when watched a thousand times, like the map with coffee stains(these little details make all the difference ). The image of a stripper from VIP room, the voice of a concerned, geek boyfriend((you can really feel that he cares about her(that is so sweet), the line "How can I know I'm just a driver"-priceless, the security guard(like when people are strict and to the point), the graphics(even when there is something wrong with them -that's fine cos it contributes the the whole nostalgia theme)and I'm really glad that he dose not smoke(am I right?I hope I am, it would be a shame he is so cute ). I hope you wont change any thing about his look all thou I would love to see him in one of those blue silk Hawaii printed like shirts with standing collar. I love the body, the way it looks at you makes a powerful image which sort off bond you in a way with the victim. The environment isn't here without a blame, it makes her look like she is just laying on a couch. Be cos her body lays in such a way on a couch she's more alive than dead. In her flat you can find things that gives you a idea of who she was, which makes it easier to feel attached to her like: "the total health fitness and spa"-schedule, other cards on the fridge, cooking books,(Canadian cuisine... hmm I wonder), photo taken when she was young and now I see a potential bathroom which probably been puked all over, so that would be enough reason not to show it. I also loved the car, focusing only on one object and showing it from different angles is what I liked the most in the game.
In 1992 the poetry club started its existence. From that time many things changed in 2001 Dr. Ferrer met his wife, 2 years later in 2003 got married. The dates correlates with the plates hanging in the hallway of Victoria Morales Institute. Golden Ring Contributors: The Association for study of Arthritis and NO-Interferon Pharmaceuticals gave for the Morning Hill health center a large sum in January 2001 .Victoria Morales Institute was funded in January 2003.(January )2 weeks before his death Dr.Ferrer visited a "Poe" Book store ordering a very rare book for his poetry club, his wife didn't know about poetry club?Lucy the secretary remembered her former boss as a great man "he was always bringing flowers and candies"(is it natural for a boss to bring flowers and candies to his employees ?). Jose was also involved in many fund raising events and played tennis with his friend Dr German with who he shared a various patents for hip replacement and new method of treating arthritis. Dr German had an affair with Lucy, she once lied for him. Ferrer knew about Steve heart problems and Parkinson. Elena Ferrer was jealous of Elizabeth Marquis was she the one who shred et Elizabeth's card "see you at the office Liz" ? Did Dr Ferrer was interested in helping only Elizabeth's career ? He used his connections in order to push her career. the day of murder : -Lucy went at 4, before doing so she checked if Dr Ferrer needed something, at that time he was on the phone with his wife ; -Dr German went at 8 or 8:30, he had an appointment with Lucy in a hotel ((but he left the light be cos he did not want any one to know about him and Lucy (Lucy went at 4 so no one should think that they were together and who they wanted to spare the news of them being together is that person Dr Ferrer ? may be Dr German had other lover not only Lucy?) ; -about 9 Elena Ferrer took some sleeping pills and went to bed ; -at around 10 mat the janitor saw a blond women walking to the exit door, later a blond wig was found on the stair case ; -the body of Dr Ferrer was found by Mat around 11 On the carpet in the office there were few bloody foot prints :the janitors and probably Elizabeth's Elizabeth Marquis later in the leather admitted to Francis(a guy who she knew from a book club)that she knows the killer. Francis told French that poetry club has 8 members, including Dr Ferrer and Elizabeth. Is the business man and the model another dead members of poetry club? Did Elena tried to kill herself be cos of feeling guilty, may be cos she knew something she shouldn't have known ? Is the 3 part of Jack French adventures another attempt to find a murderer in a room fool of people joined together only by a book ? ...and why a book club? Dose only I see how unoriginal it sounds?
"I want the 3rd episode to be the best, taking into account all the comments I received after the 2 first games. (It is scary to realize that there is a long history documenting 3rd episodes as the worst sequels of their respective series... think Star Wars, Godfather, Matrix, Alien, X-Men, Harry Potter, ...)" - simplicity is the key (how I hate commercials )
