  1. Does anybody remember this game? Especially now since that games like RC World and Planet Coaster exist, it's weird that people up and forgot about this game and it's sequel. Now the thread is named after the sequel, but only because I played that one so much and it's the only one to have a PC port to Windows. Also I have a surprise for everybody who hasn't gone to wikipedia and looked at the developer. Because the developer for the Thrillville series is the same as the ones who made Planet Coaster. In fact, they actually developed RC2 expansions as well as RC3. I'm guessing that their deal with whoever owned the rights to RCT went south so they wanted to make their own Roller Coaster Tycoon game. But here's where the game differs from most Roller Coaster Tycoon games... the game isn't in a top down perspective, but in a 3rd person perspective where you control a player character. The main gimmick in Thrillville is that you can take care of the park like you normally would, but you can also participate as a guest and do small stuff or talk to people. However the game does have a big flaw, there's no sandbox mode and the editing is structured where you work in specific places and you can't build more coasters. You have no control over any aesthetics or geometry of the park, but you are allowed to edit the tracks, and you can place small attractions wherever you want. Now, the sequel did add the "Woah!" parts, which are sections where the tracks does something that in real life would kill almost everyone who rides it. They raise thrill immensely and are easy to add, but they have high nausea factors. They're obviously there to make track editing easier and make coaster making more challenging. But the real change that I liked as a kid was the ability to finally be able to not finish coasters. Now you can just let the cars fly off the tracks! But yeah, if you remember or have played this, share your thoughts...

    Namco High

    Update: Ok I lied about its almost being impossible to play, somebody has a download of it. But this is a literal dating sim made by Andrew Hussie that's officialy licensed and sanctioned by namco
  3. OK, this game is obscure, but it's almost impossible to access it at this point at well. It's also super recent as well and it has Homestuck Characters in it. I also realize that this description to this game sounds like bullshit, but let me talk about Shifty Look. Back in like 2013 or something, Namco wanted to bring back it's older IPs, but really didn't want to make games of them at all. So they made a small-ish studio to handle that aspects called Shifty Look. At first they just made webcomics with all of the old Namco characters in it, but later on they started working on other projects. You might remember a Bravoman Cartoon where Bravoman was voiced by a Ninja Turtle, because Shiftylook made that. Though they were also keen on hitting the market of more "Internet Humor" type media like the Mappy shorts and one of their bigger projects, Namco High. Now Namco High is a dating sim, but it was a freemium dating sim that had online servers when it was still up. But Shifty Look is completely dysfunct and has almost every online presence deleted. This meant that a lot of media was almost lost like the Bravoman Cartoon, Mappy, and the webcomics. But as of now there's no real way to access Namco High. It's gone. There is a website where it is supposed to be up, but the person who owns it probably never decided to bring it back up because the site is down. So yeah, this is an odd case, VERY ODD. I know Ross hates when stuff like this happens, but this is the AFTERMATH of when that stuff happens. I would also like to point out that Namco High got it HARD. While it could be possible to do something with Darkspore, the entirety of Namco High was online only, no downloads. So yeah, I just like to bring this up since it's a very odd case of games shutting down and also a very rare case of a game's existence almost being completely gone. I would say if somebody found a working version to link it, but I'm kind of sure that's piracy even though the company that made it is dead. I do know that there are playthroughs of it on Youtube at least.
