Yerfdog Happyponygate Collector's Contest!

Here's your chance to come up with something for people who pay extra for HPG to receive!

Here are the official Standard HPG Contest Rules:

1 - I reserve the right to use (or not use) anything and everything posted in this thread at my discretion.
2 - You acknowledge that you might not get any credit for ideas here. I might have thought of them first!
3 - The author of my favorite entry receives 20 Yerfbucks.
4 - There will be one winner no matter how many entries I choose to use, even if I use no entries. I'll just choose my favorite to be the official winner.
5 - Any entry used in the game will get its creator listed in the game credits in an appropriate section.
6 - Enter as many times as you like!

And here is info specific to this contest:

- This contest ends July 1st!

- The idea here is to invent an in-game something (item, ability, ... something?!) that would be part of what a player gets if they choose to get the Super Happy edition of the game, for some amount of extra money.

- I just made up that Super Happy name right now, I don't know what it will really be called, but it's basically just the deluxe version of the game. It's the normal game, but you get some bonuses as a reward for supporting the developers above and beyond the required amount.

- If you play Kingdom Of Loathing, this is the equivalent of the Mr. Accessory, though most likely you wouldn't be able to do it repeatedly. You'd just choose to buy the fancier version of the game (or upgrade to it from the regular version), so you'd get a one-time set of bonuses.

- Let your imagination run wild! Think of something I would've never even considered, or something in a whole category I hadn't even thought of!

- Remember, this is in-game stuff, not a t-shirt or cloth map.

Larger houses for players and extra monsters to populate them! Or an in-game newsletter that shows upcoming events? Or maybe even an extra skill tree so players have a 5th way to play through the game! A new weapon? There's plenty of possibilities.

Added modifiers and/or achievements would be nice. Added stuff to put in your house, more inventory space and obviously, some added monsters.

You guys will need to be a lot more specific with your posts! That applies to every post above this one (at least until you guys come back and edit them...). Get really specific! "Added Monsters" has absolutely no chance to win. Someone else is more than welcome to come to along and say "giant robots with pizza launchers that you can add in your levels", and they would win.

Please don't think that because someone ahead of you has said some hugely broad category that you can't submit something that goes in that category. I'm ignoring the hugely broad entries.

This isn't just a random ideas thread, it's a contest! Try to submit the entry that I'll like the best!

Default Re: Happyponygate Collector's Contest!

Okay! I'll try to be specific! (BTW, people who buy the original but later get the CE edition will get some sort of small rebate, right?)

Ummm...okay. If a person buys the CE edition, his/her Bouapha recieves access to a hidden area that would normally be blocked off: a path up into the mountain situated outside London, in the north-east quadrant. Following the winding walkway (which goes from grassy to muddy/gravelly to snowy, and involves crossing a raggedy bridge), Bouapha can visit the cabin of the man dubbed the "Happy Hermit", an older gentleman with a really long and white beard, who refused to evacuate. Upon first meeting, Bouapha and the Happy Hermit would greet each other and explain what each was doing.

Then the Happy Hermit would offer his services (without leaving the cabin, of course) and there would be a number of things Bouapha could do there...

- HH (Funny) Advice! (My personal favorite; Jamul, get your best "old guy"
voice ready) The Happy Hermit has aquired a vast knowledge over the
years, and he shares the answers to life's secrets in hilarious, easy to remember quotes. There would
be many sayings to hear. (I'm hoping for at least 30 good ones; I don't
know if they would play at random or simply restart after the list was
finished.)

- HH (Useful) Advice! This might be a way to unlock alternate uses for
weapons, or just some easy upgrading. The Happy Hermit might explain ?
and show? Bouapha how to run while firing, how to fire a Marshmellow
Clump instead of single marshmellow, how to create a personal shield for
five seconds, etc. (Of course, Bouapha couldn't continue to upgrade just by talking to HH over and over again.)

- Target practice (Mini-game of sorts) The Happy Hermit owns a BB gun, and has a target range set up in his backyard. Bouapha can borrow the gun and practice his shooting on various types of objects, still and moving (so he has to time his shots just right), and under different conditions. Another way to upgrade, but as easy. Not sure about alternate prizes.

- The ["Okrian"] Series This is a series of fantasy books that the Happy Hermit wrote in his spare time, about...whatever Jamul or [other person] wants to write about. (Of course, the name is just made up.) Bouapha can read, enjoy, and (at the request of the HH) even proofread them. (Mistakes put in there on purpose would be included, and by correcting everything, Bouapha would win...something.)

- The Cauldren The Happy Hermit would teach Bouapha potions he could use to protect himself, using various substances. Bouapha could collect the leftover marshmellows goo from downed Marshmellow Men, take those to the HH, and Hermit would create an antidote or shield specifically designed to protect again Marshmellow Men. (How long the antidote or shield would last would depend on how much leftover goo Bouapha collected and gave the HH, and the Cauldren would be the only place the potions could be created.)

- "Sawing in the Cellar" The Happy Hermit has a constant supply of wood and tools stored down in his basement, which he has graciously allowed Bouapha to use to build useful items. (The only thing I can think of right now is a wooden catapult, but I know there are other things. )

Talking Re: Happyponygate Collector's Contest!

This sort of goes along with Vark's post earlier.

At the end of the "regular" game, Bouapha would win and go back to a fixed point so he can continue doing other various missions.

-------------------------------------------------------------

However, in the CE edition, just after he wins, some incredibly strong force creates a Bouapha-shaped portal and pulls him in, transporting him to the Happy Land of Forrest Gumpdrop Trees and Strawberry-Flavored Coke (or whatever it's called). (The land is really pink-y and red-y.) There, Bouapha faces the ULTIMATE HAPPY BOSS. (It would be a pony, I'm guessing, but I think a generic smiley face would be even funnier.)

After defeating this really tough (or maybe just tedious) boss, Bouapha goes back to that fixed point, but he now has the power to shape-shift into any of the monsters he's battled! Huzzah! (It would only work if he disguises himself before entering a firefight.)

The ability to use enemies (specifically Happy Ponies) as mounts.

A new weapon or two (see Weapons Contest for good ideas on which to use).

The use of the last element Jamul cut out in production.

Pin the tail on the Happy pony. Some sort of mini-game. Unlockable of course.
