I thought some of you clowns might like to know about the upcoming Fooruman game. So I interviewed Violet about it, even though I am on the team.

——————————-

ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Hello. We are here with Violet, who is the lead coder of the Fooruman game.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Anything you’d like to say about the game before I ask you questions?
Vïòlét says:
IT SUX.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
And why do you say it sux?
Vïòlét says:
You’ll just have to wait and see. This game reaches all new fields of SUXyness, and its secrets should not be revealed prematurely.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Wow. Now, tell us a bit about the plot.
Vïòlét says:
Well, so far we think the plot will be like this: Fooruman, as seen in Foo School, is in charge (the owner, teacher, and assassin, as I recall) of the legendary School for Foos, which is presumably where Black Ninja got his education. Fooruman’s cousin, Terexin, a member of the equally legendary Wizards Council, has come to tell Fooruman of the recent plight of the Wizards Council – nobody seems to care. With a mixture of flattery and lies, Terexin convinces Fooruman to undertake the tryouts for WC, so he can wear it in his name like Terexin does.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Interesting. Who all is working on this project?
Vïòlét says:
I am in charge of coding. Black Ninja is the brain trust, behind the general gameplay, and also seems to have taken it onto himself to design the levels. Radium created the 3D Fooruman model. We hope to find a use for more people soon.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Interesting. I heard from something that I accidentally let slip out that there will be a demo soon. Is this true?
Vïòlét says:
Depends on your definition of soon.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
And how many levels will be included in this demo?
Vïòlét says:
More than two!
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
3?
Vïòlét says:
That information should not yet be revealed…

…but probably, yes.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Wow, 3.
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Will the final game feature online play or a level editor?
Vïòlét says:
Both of these are possibilities, but not yet confirmed.
Vïòlét says:
Same goes with their being a final game.
Vïòlét says:
there*
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Wow. Can you give us a brief list of features that will be included? If the game is ever finished?
Vïòlét says:
What sort of features?
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
What will be included in the game?
Vïòlét says:
Few things are confirmed yet, as it is still in heavy development, but here is what we are aiming for:

More than four seperate weapons, each with their own distinct behavior patterns.
Multiple enemies in every level, and many different areas.
A final showdown with whoever we feel is appropiate.
A friendly, helpful assistant who warns you about upcoming problems (and can’t be turned off).
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
WOW OMG
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
sounds like it will own
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
;p
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
Thank you for your time, Violet. Before we wrap up this interview, would you please pass the mustard?
Vïòlét says:
Certainly not. What do you think I am, a housemaid?
ßlänk Ñïñjà says:
And there you have it. Thank you again for your time, even though I didn’t ask if I could interview you.

——————————

And there you have it.

Oh, .. How, enlightening.

Update: Odds are against this project ever seeing the light of day. Instead, there is a possibility some other Fooruman game will be made (we don’t really know why).
