Lookin' good...

Is the FesterCard logo gonna appear on the full weapon store view or did you forget to add it?

Well, there are a few errors...

I'm pretty sure the weapons store is at Radon, and not the moon as depicted.

"Old Birds Wise Words" was performed when Vohaul was in elementary school. The locker room is when he was a highschool junior.

And you might consider just make an open and closed locker instead of 2 backgrounds... Other than that, good work. And the thing with the glasses is great :D

The FesterCard image is here.

As for the poster replacement, maybe a SQ7.org poster?

For now, don't think about it. Cause the fact is that I'm not sure either.

Hmmm... Could be anything. Maybe a follow-up to the schoolplay...

Do you have whiskey sauce?

Thats great, now i know what vohauls girlfriend in highschool should look like, i really like he idea of the x-rayed pictures too. A great puzzel from within the moon.

In terms of the open and closed door pic, thats ok. Whoever is coding he game can just cut out the small section where the door opens so it will just be a sprite.

Not to be too critical, but I don't think the correct term to match the picture that Marty provided would be x-ray...it seems to be more like looking through the plastic red-lens glasses that sometimes come in some cereal boxes, which block out almost all but one color. Infrared and ultraviolet vision don't match up either.

But really, it doesn't matter, I just wanted to make sure that you knew that the technical term wouldn't be x-ray, since you wouldn't be seeing the things shown in the picture.

Everything's looking really good, Marty.

It isn't exactly x-ray. In "They Live", the lenses weren't x-ray either. In that movie, they called 'em Hoffman lenses. So let's just use that term for ours too (not really something we should use in the game, though).

They could be a spoof of Hoffman, like Borfman or something. Or just Q-rays.

Great job, Marty.

I especially got a big laugh over the "cake day" poster, and the reference to syrup of ipecac. :lol:

In case some of you didn't know, ipecac is a plant extract which when swallowed, stimulates the central nervous system and the stomach, causing vomiting, usually in about 20 minutes.
