Hello, my name is Overman. Is there a snitch emote on this forum? Oh well, this will have to do
I thank you all for accepting me into your kingdom! As you are well aware, I am the great Overman from the GMC, famous for slaying the terrible game makers Ultimortal and 2dcube. Two years ago, I fled my dying homeland as it was ravaged by the YYG staff, aided by moderators gone rogue. I did not leave without a fight, but even my valiant attempts to stave off xot were futile against the powers of chaos.
Many were lost, including the elder Alpha Man and my many comrades, Pounce and Commodore Swift among them... may their souls rest in peace. For years, I roamed the countryside, a derelict warrior with no home to fight for, and no forum that would accept me. Every night as I lay to sleep, the spirits of my fallen companions would haunt me, and anger coursed through my blood. I swore my revenge, though in those times, I was far too weak to do anything...
Recently, I decided to return to the GMC, disguised as Underman. What I saw shocked me to the core - a dying land, completely deprived of the bustling activity it had once known. Memories came back to me of the 2006 era, when new games were being posted daily, and threads would reach hundreds of pages... now, there was nothing remaining apart from the little kids in the Off Topic forum. My homeland was dead - what had I left to live for?
I sat alone for some time, brooding. I contemplated what was next. That was when a vision came over me - a strange, magnificent bird, playing a clarinet. It was the Faltzer bird.
"Why do you weep so?" the Faltzer bird said unto me. "The GMC died a long time ago - in June of 2009, when the great Overman was banned for the first time."
"Yes, but what am I to do now?"
"Heh," smirked the Faltzer bird, "you must look to the future of game making. You, who were once the most innovative of all designers, you, who single-handedly slayed the faux-retro and unoriginal creations of Cactus - you alone can redefine the world of game making."
The Faltzer bird flew away, and I was left pondering. Slowly, a realization dawned upon me. Indeed, the future of game making lay not in Game Maker, but in Construct 2! I made my way over here, not sleeping for many days, my mind brimming with visions of the games to come. Yes, my ideas are numerous... a storm is coming, my friends. The Perfect Storm of games.
Hello, Construct 2 forums.
