    Default Let's Happy Dream! - Amechra plays END ROLL

    Hey folks, long time no see! I, um, lost my account password for a bit, and was too lazy to fix that until earlier today. Oops?

    While I was gone, I got back into the whole "uploading videos on the regular" thing. I posted quick peeks at a turn-based vertical shooter and a weird Groundhog's Day visual novel. However, I also started on my white whale, a little game named END ROLL.

    END ROLL is a surprisingly in-depth indie horror JRPG about a boy named Russell, who is part of a weird, definitely-qualifies-as-cruel-and-unusual-punishment rehabilitation program for his (unspecified) crimes. All he has to do is take a daily dose of the Happy Dream drug, and have pleasant dreams, filled with friendly, familiar faces. It gets worse from there - much worse.

    Anyway, here's the first video in the playlist. I currently have the first five videos uploaded and live (this is way longer than the other games I've played), and I'd really appreciate some feedback either here or on Youtube - I'm still new to this whole thing, and this is my biggest project yet.

    For anyone who's interested, there's a choice coming up. I've set up a poll to get some audience opinions.

    More information is here. (0:35)

    It's a day late, but here's the continuing saga of Russell, the great guy who has never done anything wrong: Part 6.

    Today, we visit the gloomy town of Darcover, where it's always night and the big tourist hotspot is the graveyard. How... fun. In any case, we meet up with Dogma and enter our next dungeon.

    So, I thought I was going to make a short episode, but... Part 9 - Wise and Priestly Duties (44:27)

    Today we got the last Guilt event that you have to get on Day 4 (after some running around like a chicken with its head cut off), and then we used two Compasses and visited their respective areas. The next video will be back to plot, I promise.

    I am bad at short episodes lately, huh. Part 10: Some Quaint Mountain Dragons (47:27)

    In this video, we find out exactly what the deal is with Kantera, and Gardenia starts her journey to ultimate power.

    And we're finishing out Day 4 with Part 11: Ice to Meet You (46:29)

    Look, penguins are involved. I had to use the pun.

    And, because we're finishing out the day, how about some movies? Special 2: Movies with a Doctor (9:50)

    We're starting off Day 5 with a mega episode. Part 12 - More Like Eleven (53:04)

    Basically, there are two "secret" characters that you can pick up starting on Day 5. And, since they probably have movie scenes, I had to grab them before I started the main plot. And that, my friends, involved beating up a lot of bosses. Oh, and there's some drama involved concerning a few of the Dreamsend characters. It's... eventful, is what I'm saying.

    ---

    Alright, here's a question: what are people's favorite characters so far? This may, in fact, be related to something that will be happening on Day 6.

    An hour late but still on the date!

    OK, so, I have a horrible confession to make: I have a terribly short attention span. Which is why we start the plot today and then immediately bum around in Seaside. Sorry. Part 13: Fun in the Sun (43:34)

    ...

    One thing that's happened over the course of the last few videos is that they've been gradually getting longer. The next couple of videos will be 50+ minutes long. If that's a problem for people, I can start actually setting a timer instead of just picking arbitrary starting and stopping times.

    And the "favorite character" question is still open, if anyone is interested in giving their opinion (this thread has almost 17k views - at least one of you has to have one, right? )

    OK, now we're actually going to continue with The Plot. And I don't feel good about it, honestly. Mireille's story is a definite step-up when it comes to nastiness - let's leave it at that for right now.

    Part 14: The Nurse Will See You Now (54:09)

    So, this video was going to be over an hour long, and that was just too long. So I cut it in half, and slipped the "normal" ending in at the end.

    But hey. We get to finally finish up that aquarium area, and we learn something... interesting... about Russell, in... Part 15 - Under The Sea (37:37)

    Alright, we have two shorter videos today, closing out Day 5.

    Part 16: Such a Pity (28:37) {CW: Dead animals. Yes, I feel like I need to add another CW here.}
    Special #3: Movies and Introspection (17:55)

    For anyone who has been skipping over the videos where I cover movies, I suggest watching this one. Or, at least, the first 10 minutes of it. Something... unexpected... came up, and I probably won't be covering it again.

    ---

    OK, so, at the start of Day 6 there's a choice. You have to pick either Yumi or one of the playable characters (other than Walter or Raymond) as your "buddy" for some plot stuff coming up - the game doesn't actually let you do anything until you make this choice. The biggest hitch here is that the person you pick changes the ending.

    Now, I don't know if I'll have the time or energy to run through the final two days seven times - grad school is making demands on my time. Now, my preference would be to pick Yumi, since this might be the only way we can recruit her. However, if anyone wants to see the ending for a different character, just tell me.

    I'll probably put up a more formal poll video later tonight, if I have the time.

    Due to time constraints on my end, I decided to just go ahead with Day 6. Not that there's much to do - we actually finish up the last non-Guilt Event side quest in this video right here:

    Part 17: Finishing Up The Sidequests (28:17)

    Unfortunately, I have some bad news for anyone paying attention to this thread. Due to family circumstances and school, I'm going on hiatus (1:24). There will be an END ROLL video going live tonight, but after that, I'm going to be quiet for a bit.

    Be seeing you.

    And here's that video: Part 18 - Enjoying the Festival (35:07)

    I have positive news! My life has recently restabilized to the point where I'm confidant that I'll be able to upload things going forward. As a result, I'm starting to upload stuff again, using the END ROLL videos I've already recorded as a buffer.

    So, without further ado... Part 19: Scraps of Guilt (23:05), where we've finally gotten the last Guilt Event. We are maximally guilty, which is important for what comes next.

    And this is it - the final "main" video in the series: Part 20 - From Cradle to Grave (27:14). It's a grim one, but it never really could've been any different.

    That being said, we aren't done with END ROLL just yet. There will be a few more videos going up next week, covering some stuff that I missed and some postgame content.

    This has been my longest LP by a long shot, and I greatly appreciate everyone who has followed along for the 12 hours, 45 minutes, and 53 seconds that this journey has taken so far.
