Re: 1190: "Time"

Question: what was it that creeped Cuegan out about Hypatia? It seems she was quite friendly, open, and helpful to me. I think I would have stayed to brainstorm with her on technology the beanies might have that could help them save their people. I don't know why but I found her kind of intimidatin...

Re: 1190: "Time"

The slow rise we saw on-screen (even up until the floating bucket cut-away, assuming that's the original sand castle site with the same camera position) would be easy to escape. I think Hypatia's about to tell them that the inundation is going to accelerate as the flow cuts a larger and larger chan...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I don't think the forty are in anyway harmed. We saw the rate of the water rising while they were building the sand castle, the people there probably had a day or two to evacuate. We also know that they can swim( or at least some can because Cuegan know how to). The biggest problem that they would f...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Guys! We've missed an obvious extrapolation here: Megan knows multiplication! ...I don't know what the implications of that are. Yes, but strangely, she says "X Y times" instead of the usual "Y times X"... so would that mean that she's intuitively used to the idea of multiplicat...

Re: 1190: "Time"

OK OTVO voting time! Pick your favorite Cueball and Meagan Voice. Results will be displayed here I choose C6 & M4 Cuegan seem to be a bit scared of the people in the hill. Back when Megan was hurt she mentioned the people in the hill and Cueball replies that they are a "long way" from...

Re: 1190: "Time"

With everyone doing voice acting I was inspired to represent the "Somewhat"oh.
It is probably an example of how we shouldn't do it as a voice over.

ohI don't think I will do any voice acting ever again :oops:

Re: 1190: "Time"

I might have a little cautious revelation. http://i.imgur.com/0Qt5Zbz.png Note the AM2. It was used in G2806 and exclaimed by Beanette in G2842 . Could we have Beanie1's name here? Neat! Easy to remember: Amtoo! And Beanie2 is going to be called Detoo! Amtoo, Detoo! Well even if AM2 is not the name...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I vote for yappobiscuits as the voice of cueball because I was surprised that he sounded EXACTLY(well very very close) like how I imagined Cueball sounds. (would still like to hear other people though) For the pope decree: http://videogamecritic.com/images/jaguar/dragon%27s_lair_%28cd%29.jpg

Re: 1190: "Time"

The buildings kind of remind me of a scene from Alice in Wonderland where she is tiny. Which made me think that maybe the people are really ants(or other bugs drawn as people) and the sea is rising because someone left the garden hose on (yeah the tap theory again). That would make the boabab trees ...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Interesting. The word for this food is very similar to the first word in the phrase for the healing paste. The difference is that the healing paste name has a '3' in front of it, and this word has a bar over the curvy-omega. Well then clearly thay are eating raptorcat and either the medicine is spe...

Re: 1190: "Time"

Clock check-- Cueball got up almost 100 frames ago, Megan about 10 frames later. And it's a day's journey to the wedding cake/ziggurat/SS Minnow? I REALLY hope this is a late lunch... Megan said it was less than a days journey. So depending on how acurately the beanies drawing is I'm guessing it wo...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I think the themes present in Heart of Darkness are reflected in alot of stories (and personally I hope if Time is based something more exciting or elaborate since I found Heart of Darkness to be quite boring actually). I much rather relate cuegans epic journey to something like The Lord of the Ring...

Re: 1190: "Time"

I think the reason for cuegan having 3 circles drawn next to them and the beanies having only 2 triangles is that it represents one of their conversations. Cuegan say one thing then the beanies respond. Judging by the appearance of the translator I think the square language represents squirpy(or mol...

Re: 1190: "Time"

(Not sure if this has been said yet, since I mostly scan read)I am pretty sure that a open circle at the end of beanish language character (like this "o") is a "?" and a line across a character is a "." and could be added to any character.
