    Geneforge remakes.

    When will the fabled remakes come out for Geneforge? and will it be a remake on just G1 or all the Geneforges? Will all the Geneforge games be mashed into one giant game where choices will be carried over from each game? That would be super cool imo.
  2. Darkstone is hella challenging my man you get a ton of goodies and an enchanted forge that has like 6 containers I use for storage. You also get a really neat sword if you're a warrior.
  3. G4 was also my first Geneforge so that's awesome, and I assume you're referring to my man Shaper Lethos at the Cairn Gates. He's cool and all, being an unknown character you just met wielding an aura of mystery. He ain't much though, the serville caravan will more or less wipe the floor with his shaper ass. Now if you want to talk I N T I M I D A T I O N, let's talk about General Crowley, the Guardian you meet when you've exiting the Shaper Camp in the Forsaken Lands. After infiltrating this heavily armed shaper dominated area, you slip away only to be stopped by a Guardian. You can actually spot him before his dialogue begins and when I was around 8 or 9 years old, I would hover over his character to check his health. His health was something of a whopping 1321 HP or somewhere around those lines. I'd be lying if I said my heart didn't skip a few beats. Now you, a puny rebel lifecrafter-in-training would have no chance, and even as a kid I knew that. This whole event was just so frightening to me as a child lmao. Returning to G3, the Warped Creator at the north of the first island is also incredibly intimidating you're first time through. The in-game sprite for this monstrosity was so proud .. and so menacing and the same time. It could attack with high power and inflict debuffs all whilst creating creatures at the same time. I think the Warped Creator is a lot more challenging than Lethos anyways. Anyways, I love the way you to talk about G4 though, you speak of it in such a genuine and endearing way it puts a smile on my face. We woulda been great friends. "Moseh and Elizah" don't forget about Shaftoe. That guy is so obnoxious with his infinitely spawning creatures. Anyways, the Barrier Zone Guardians are in Chapter of 3 of G4 so I'll take some enemies from the third island (Dhonal's Isle) for my explanations. The first mini boss would be Spharon, in Spharon's Lands. I'll admit Spharon himself isn't really ALL that intimidating, but his army of magically altered seville behemoths really made you wonder what kind of mad man Spharon is, if he could control this many magically attuned maniacs. Fighting Spharon himself really isn't terrible, at least until he becomes immortal until you destroy his Horcrux in a nearby pot or whatever it is. The idea of Spharon is the vision of a man so incredibly powerful he is pretty much on a whole new level of dangerous. Another enemy, a favorite of mine, is the Golem Monstrosity deep within the Darkstone Core. Before you enter the area where the Golem resides, dialogue options stated that this place was sealed because a terrible experiment went wrong, thus everyone and everything inside the labratory was trapped inside .. forever. Now reading those text boxes really made me feel some type of way. Was a excitement? Wonder? Fear? Perhaps a mixture of all three. The idea of an all powerful enemy trapped inside a place that the Shapers deemed too dangerous for it's own good was such a cool idea to me. Before entering the actual Shaping lab, you'll find many bodies with a text box reading, "It looks like a desperate battle took place here many years ago." I'd like to think that there were some people who tried to stop the creation of the Golem before it took place. Entering the lab, a text box in the middle of the screen will read, "There are two dead shapers here. They were trapped when the disaster happened." Hoo. If that doesn't make you consider turning around, you're quite brave. Of course, the actual battle with the Golem is very difficult, with the Golem able to stack acid attacks when it can attack up to 3 times. But yeah, incredibly good writing here. Oh yeah, if the player meet Ghaldring at the start of the game, it would signify how far the limits of Shaping could go, and the player would understand that.
  4. Geneforge 3's mini bosses are so much more intimidating than G4's imo.
  5. That weirdo artila is such a scumbag if you fight him early because his venom does like 50 a turn lol
  6. That reminds me then, where does the ingredients for the Artifacts come from lol. The ur-drakon scale you obtain from killing a powerful ur-drakon, but what about those more obscure ingredients, like blood poison or solidified flame?
  7. Can we put a drakon arm on a human please
  8. Alwans a prideful scumbag anyway
  9. You'd think Alwan could be healed to a point where he could actually move and function like a normal human after the events of G4. In G5 you can get a huge hole in your heart when you get the control rod taken out of you and have said hole sealed instantly but Alwan can't get the proper care he needs? His wounds were mortal, yeah, but you'd think there's something that could've been done besides being contained to a machine for the rest of his life,
  10. I think if someone were to self shape themselves to bypass training it would be looked at as a crime, but if someone were to self shape themselves as a mean to further the Shaper cause, it would be temporarily overlooked. Moseh, Elizah and Shaftoe and to control a massive amount of creations at a time and used machines and self altering methods to gain power and control; but it was for the good of the Shapers. And if an ordinary person lost a limb, the Shapers probably wouldn't give a damn about attempting to help them, but if a Guardian lost a limb, they'd probably work on creating a prosthetic or an entirely new arm, just because how useful and powerful Guardians are. If you believe I'm wrong or if I got my facts mixed up feel free to correct me lol

    Geneforge remakes.

    Volunteer help from the community could be an option. Just throwing out ideas.

    Geneforge remakes.

    That's disappointing lol. Spiderweb software should hire some more employees, or just get some volunteer help from the outside to help em out. Doesn't Spiderweb Software have like 3 employees or something

    G1: Late game starting to be a drag

    I kinda just always kept my items and crafting materials on the ground at the nearest town until I could move them to the Darkstone cave I think it's called on the third island. Where the beautiful magical anvil is

    G1: Late game starting to be a drag

    I mean Geneforge 3 isn't even THAT bad, but if you wanted to actually know the story of G4 you'd probably wanna play G3 before hand lol

    G1: Late game starting to be a drag

    G5 is my least favorite Geneforge game rip

    In G4 Mass energize it gives you 1-2 plus AP and in G5 I thought there's a chance to give you more action points
  18. Vinlie

    Okavano Cheese

    The only downside to this is you miss out on experience and items I guess lol. You could also use mass energize to get more AP (I forget if that's what it's called in G5)
  19. As I said in a previous forum post, I main fire creations because I love em, but I pick up Wingbolts just so I have a reliable damage source against Unbound.
  20. Oh yeah, on torment, wingsbolts can dish out like 600 damage without resistances..

    Geneforge 1: Place to stash items

    Not unless the item specifically says it gives a stat boost. Example: +3 Strength of Creations (Crystalline Shroud, G3)
  22. God damn you're fast. Kudos my friend!
  23. 2007. 11 years later and it's still bugged?

    Any Android games out there?

    I'm not sure that there are any games that Spiderweb Software that are available on the smartphone. Which kinda sucks. You may be able to emulate it but it's probably unlikely.
