Sliplets of our masters, please?
« on: August 26, 2020, 06:21:34 am »

Ok, long story short there is someone I know who would love this game if they ever tried it but they happen to be very.... stubborn to trying it.
I have looked and searched and looked some more for some snippets of the first few lines the Kzer-Za say to the player- or some other non-spoiler (so defo not the korah) lines.
I think the megaMod images + sound would really hype them up.
TL;DR I want a quick clip of some places in the game that showcase some of the best lines or art that is also spoiler free .
He really likes good writing.  Any good ideas I could shove in his face?

Liiike, what the drone says to you when you approach Earth?

Or what they say when you come across them in their own territory and you haven't used THE WORDS?

Oh, I used the Kohr-Ah words "We did. You did. Yes we can. No.", without context, telling the person that these words make perfect sense when talking to a homicidal maniac.
But even if you add the statement(s) beforehand, it does lure people.
(And I lured that person before Obama hijacked a part of this slogan for his campaign.)

Quote from: player
You have attacked us before, and we survived! You cannot defeat us. Submit!
Quote from: Aliens
We did. You did. Yes we can. No.


Also, if your friend will not play, he'll never truly understand the meaning of "Cowabunga!"... Which would be sad.
So thank you for spreading "Juffo-Wup" in his direction, to Void the Non.
But by now (s)he'll just assume you're *spitting* *shiny* *words*.
And don't forget to mention there'll be plenty of *dancing*, and that (s)he should enjoy *squeezing* *the juice*.

Liiike, what the drone says to you when you approach Earth?
Quote from: Kzer-Za Drone
Attention interloper - heed this recorded message!
This drone-vessel speaks with the voice and authority of the Ur-Quan.
You are trespassing within Ur-Quan space.
This world, Earth, may not be approached for any reason.
Nor will hostilities against our orbital platform be tolerated.
In addition, your ship does not respond to standard Hierarchy identification transmissions
and is therefore deemed to be independent.
This is not permissible -- only subservience shall be tolerated.
This drone now leaves to inform the Ur-Quan of your transgressions.
You are commanded to remain here and await the arrival of the Ur-Quan.
Disobedience will be punished.

Another one I like (because it's just one example of the Ur-Quan love for understatements):

Quote from: player
Uh oh.
Quote from: Kzer-Za
It is as though your species' brain is too small to hold a simple thought
such as, WE WILL KILL YOU FOR DISOBEYING!
This is not a complex idea.


edit:or play the audio files of a Pkunk recharging...
