No, It's Not What You Think

So I've gotten messages from people asking me if I'm going to either a) actually make an Escape From Lavender Town game for the Atari 2600, or b) if I'm going to port the actual Escape From Lavender Town to the 2600.

No.  (Jesus, you guys sure didn't think I'd be making Pokemon Creepy Black.  Well, then again....)

For those who don't know, Escape From Lavender Town is a creepypasta, campfire stories for the Internet age.  They're all phony, and their whole thing is to spook the listener.  Naturally, you have jump scares (the Tails Doll story), but you also have ones that are pretty damn convincing and work quite well (Suicide Mouse).

There are several for Pokemon, including Lost Silver, Creepy Black, and, of course, Escape From Lavender Town.  Garage programmers have taken it upon themselves to actually make playable versions of these. EFLT is the shortest, only about five minutes from start to finish, and you don't really do anything.  Here's a video of the play through.  There is some weirdness to it, but I didn't find it all that spooky or scary, just a waste of time.  (Note:  standard epilepsy warning because of flashing images and whatnot.)



So, no.  I don't see the point as this isn't really a game.  I do have some standards.
