I’ve been meaning to post this for a while. Back in 2014, I got RPG maker and decided to recreate the first chapter of The Starriest Summer, “The Machine,” as a game. It’s really short, only takes a few minutes to complete, and some of the tile sets are glitchy. As I made it back in 2014, it has some old artwork 😛
You can get the game here! It’s free, of course. http://www.mediafire.com/download/wmurjujb1o1m41t/Game.exe
Press Space to advance, X to access the menu and backtrack. You can talk to the mirror in Michelle’s room to save, or access save from the menu.
I recommend checking everything out so you can read Michelle’s fun commentary on her household and family 😛 But here’s a quick walkthrough:
- Check the nightstand to the left of the old people’s bed
- Check the bottom most book in Aaron’s room on the floor
- Check Dad’s seat in the living room
- Check the basket on the kitchen counter twice
- Attempt to leave through the front door (first floor, top left door)
- Check the garage door twice (first floor, bottom left door)
- Attempt to leave through the front door again
- Talk to Aaron
- Follow Aaron into the garage
- Talk to Aaron twice
- Check the chair below the three mirrors in the garage
- Find Tylenol on the bathroom counter, below the toilet (heals HP)
- Find Spearmint Gum in Aaron’s room under the leftmost pile of clothes. Check three times (cures poison, heals some HP)
- Find Red Stud Earrings (accessory) in the Old People’s Room jewelry box. Equip via the menu
- Find a Tree Branch (weapon) in the tallest drawers of the Old People’s Room
- Find Spearmint Gum in the bottom most tree in the backyard
- Taking out the trash like a responsible child will earn you a level up 😉
- There’s a spider in the old people’s toilet! It may bite you!
- There are hornets outside! They may sting you!
- Don’t piss off Aaron!
It’s pretty dumb and silly, but I had a lot of fun making it 😀 Here are some more screen caps!
Also here’s some pixel artwork I did a while back. Chrono Trigger! ❤ Michelle and Gediyon encounter a Gate Key!
