Ultra Publications Updates

How I Got Unintentionally Punk'd This Halloween... 

I sent the following message to Nicalis last night:

"I recently acquired Cave Story Wii after the updated version went up, and it has been a blast so far. However, I encountered a vexing oddity tonight that refuses to go away. When I loaded Cave Story tonight, the main character had the red of his hat and pants replaced with a very dark - nearly black - navi blue; afterwards, when I loaded up my save file, he was suddenly the same way in that as well. Up until now his hat and pants had been red colored, the save had been made just before you go into to the desert area. Nothing I could do could get this to stop, I have even deleted both the game and save file along the way numerous times already. So far, once it started doing this, the main character only appears in his correct outfit colors on all copies of the game I have installed if I don't create a save file at all (but you can't really play without a save file). Do you have any idea what I can do to remedy this?"

I got this reponse this morning:

"You actually haven't encountered a glitch, but a trick (or treat) we put in for fans. The main character is getting ready for Halloween.

Sorry if it has caused you some confusion."

*head hit floor repeatedly*

So, basically, I freaked out and deleted my save over a time sensitive Easter Egg (this only works if you redownloaded the game after they updated it on the 18th of this month).

New CTU-22 Progress, Podcast Episode 6 

So, the progress on Episode 22 of Chrono Trigger Unglued now stands at 20%. Furthermore, I intend to keep at this drive until this episode comes out in the near future (losing my job at Wal-Mart will help me to have a lot of time for that). I must admit, I wasn't exactly burning with energy to work with flash right now; however, today I saw that Ericho (the same Ericho that helped Kirbopher with the production of TTA, a series I adore) posted reviews on Episodes 17 and 19 of CTU that proclaimed they were the Super Mario Bros Z of Chrono Trigger. Hearing such magnanimous words, more specifically from someone who had actually been part of a major long running flash project series, caused me to burn with creative energy. So, look for CTU-22 in the near future.

Also, we recently released Episode 6 of the Ultra Publications: Revue. In this episode of our ocassionally updated podcast series, we go into great depth on the subject of the US release of Dungeon Fighter Online. Our guest for this epissode a long time regular of our forum, Wedge. Long story short, it's a great for anyone who liked arcadey beat'em-ups... but please do still listen to the episode all the same!

ADDENDUM: Sorry for some misinformation above, but it actually turns out that Ericho did not help in the production of TTA. While he was indeed one of the people that Kirbopher based a character on during season 2 of the epic flash series, he himself was in no way directly involved in production. Sorry for the earlier misinformation.

An Ultra Publications Let's Play of THE CASTLE OF DR BRAIN! 

Recently, members of the Ultra Publications Crew attempted to sally forth in an effort to apply to a lab assistant notice from Dr Brain in the want ads. It said we had to apply for the job in person, but thus far his castle has been proving a touch troublesome for us. How on earth are we go to apply in person if we can't first get through THE CASTLE OF DR BRAIN! Contained within are the first two parts of our epic tribulations where we are harrowed greatly both by puzzles far more diabolical than they seem, as well as some truly attrocious puns.

Secret of Mana Theater Lives Once More! 

Secret of Mana Theater

All 286 episodes are now online once more, no longer lost to the virus plague that wiped out everything! I highly recomend this for viewing, as it was a major source of inspiration for me in my work with CTU. While the series never reached its conclusionb ack in the day, it's still well worth watching all the same. Fear not, these 286 episodes are far shorter than the average CTU episode (it was, after all, updated two times a week during its prime). I think I will now have to get reacquainted with an old friend in the near future.

Everyone Cheer, Crono is Here! 

Far sooner than any of you probably ever dared to expect see it release, we now present you with Episode 21 of Chrono Trigger Unglued! In this episode, after being flung into a far distant future, we watch as Crono and Company debate what their next course of action should be. Furthermore, it seems that perhaps Crono's foul-mouthed talking cat might really be more than just an ether fueled figment of his imagination. However, before all that, it seems there's something Gaspar has been meaning to do for quite some time... may God help us all!

In other news, Dungeon Fighter Online - the self styled "Arcade Style MMO Beat'em Up" - is an actually fun game you might want to really consider looking in to.
