What is this?
Aquaria was released by indie developer Bit Blot in 2007. The game is 2D, nonlinear, exploration, underwater action adventure that is hard to define in terms of genre. The way I explain it to people is "Think Metroid and Cave Story underwater."
The main character is Naija, a fish girl who wakes up one day and realizes that she is alone. This leads to her going out on an adventure to discover her past and the secrets of the world of Aquaria.
What's this LP going to be like?
I will be doing 100%, getting all treasures and secrets and the like. I'll show off as much as I can in the game including both endings. That said, I prefer that spoilers not be posted in the thread, as this game has a very deep atmosphere and spoiling it would be bad. Updates will be subtitled videos, about once a week, although events in the near future may conspire against me.
Kind of. See, in the world of Aquaria, there is writings on the walls in the Aquarian language. While it is a simple matter of renaming some of the assets in the game files to automatically translate them, it spoils some of the surprises the game has. However, I believe you goons would enjoy translating them, so I'll give you a few letters and see if you can do it yourself.
Disclaimer: I am fully aware of the minor errors in the first videos (specifically "sheild" and "hopeful")
