Part 17: Eat your heart out, Dekar.Update 16: Eat your heart out, Dekar.
Hey there, everyone. Last time, Hamtaro blundered into a trapdoor and left Bijou all alone So, its time for a solo segment!
There isnt all that much that Bijou can accomplish here on her own, given that the elevator back down requires two hamsters to operate. But we must make the most of what weve got, so lets head down to where the action is.
Which would be the funeral parlour, naturally.
Huh Why is the coffin open now? Not to mention it had to have been open at some point before now, in order for Dexter to have seen the rope there.
Programming oversight, or spooky goings-on?
Way to go, Dexter.
Sadly, were going to have to leave Dexter in his predicament for a while We still dont know the tune that should open this coffin.
So, lets head next door to the old ghosts room instead.
As people in the thread quite correctly surmised, the couple-hating ghosts
are a good deal friendlier to Bijou when shes on her own. But they only seem to want to chat, so were going to have to try a little something different here.
Good ol violence!
As proof of our new friendship, would you nok-nok on my shoulders?
Yep, the old misery-guts takes Bijous Tack-Q as a gesture of friendship. I guess I can sort of see the logic, with old friends trading friendly insults and the like.
At least we learnt a little bit of manners in the bargain.
So, lets do the polite thing and give the old ghost a massage.
That felt greeeaaat! Im a new hamster. Hm?
I wanna talk more
Rest in peace, old ham.
Now, lets see how his buddy likes this
You know what would make me happier? If you would pushie on my back. ♥
Alright Time for another massage, then!
Thats great Haaaa Im nearly alive...again.
See ya, buddy.
Now that we have these new Ham-Chats, we should probably get on with rescuing Hamtaro and Howdy, for that matter.
This curiously empty stretch of hallway happens to be right below the room with the trapdoor, so logic dictates that we should check here for secret doors and the like.
That sure is one strange noise.
Ah, there we go. Lets take a look inside
Indeed she did, Howdy though it seems that the whole rescue thing isnt quite done yet.
Well get right on that, bud.
Ouch! That smarts! I landed on my bottom when I fell in here!
Actually, so long as were here How is Hamtaro?
Guess today just isnt your day, huh?
I guess Ill check on him.
Bijous here, too. Youve gotta help us find a way outta here
As you can see, were stuck in a cage. Think of somethin!
Aw, so cute. Lets take a quick look around and see if theres anything else of interest.
Well, we have a curtain cord thats too high up for Bijou to reach and Hamtaros serious face.
Still, we dont have anything that can get the boys out of that cage. However, I think we might be able to get some outside help on this one.
They are the only living NPCs on these two floors who arent currently trapped, after all.
So, lets see if theyll help our friends get their freedom.
Lets help him get his Libert-T!
Uh Yeah, okay Lets go take a look at this cage.
Nice and easy! Although, it sounds like Bijou might have only mentioned Hamtaro in describing the situation Poor ol Howdy.
One quick trip downstairs now
Ah, good. The muscular pair managed to find the hidden room without any hassle, so we can ask the green one about helping our friends with their Libert-T again.
I may be strong, but this is impossible
Oh Yeah, bending steel bars might be a little above a hamsters capability.
Amazing what a little inspiration can do, isnt it?
And he said, It doesnt matter how strong you are, its steel!! That was cool! ♥ THATS the power of love!
Couldnt have said it better myself!
Uh Good luck with finding him, Howdy!
Hey, its the celebration manoeuvre from when Hamtaro rescued Bijou! Nice callback on more than one level.
Thats our eleventh drop of love, folks. The meters even looking like it might be past half-way
Woah. Seems thats another ninja trick that Hamtaro and Bijou have picked up.
In the whole wide world!♥
Wait! I bet you can handle that other problem now!
Maybe. Lets find out!
Ah, right Good luck getting into that lift without the keycard, you two.
Meanwhile, our solo segment is finally over, and we can go back to good ol jolly co-operation.
Pulling on that cord we couldnt reach reveals another mirror What are the odds this is another secret passageway?
Really, Bijou? That looked a little rough to me
Oh, um wha b-but we havent studied!
Oh, not that kind of pop quiz then. Whew!
Whats it gonna be? Are you in? Are you out? Whats it gonna be?
Seeing as we have no idea where we are, and it could be the only way out Sure, well play your game.
Prizes? Prizes are good Come to think of it, we were kind of trying to win another one, werent we? But then the trapdoor thing happened Ah well, well get back to that soon enough.
Find the dresser you think is right and give it a good nok-nok! Whats inside the dressers ?
The game master is kind enough to give us a peek inside the dressers before play begins, and it lasts for a good few seconds (so you really have no excuse for screwing up).
You want to be extra sure you dont screw up, by the way. Failure punts you out down on the first floor, and youll have to head up to the mirror in the secret room to get back inside.
It shouldnt be any trouble, really. And no, those ten sunflower seeds and the rock arent worth doing this multiple times.
Hey, dont we know you ?
You did it! Youve won yourself a fantastic prize!
Now, that was just rude.
At least we managed to rescue the attention-hungry girlfriend, even if it was completely by accident.
Hey! Wait a sec! Were you concerned? Were you? Were you?
So you finally paid some attention to me.
I dont think Ive mentioned it yet, but I really do like how each relationship is going through something different in this game. They all have their own personality, as it were.
Ah, so thats why he was so distracted earlier. How touching.
Also, new Ham-Chat for the
That is just beyond .
Having saved a second relationship now, I think this is a good time to leave off for today. Next time, well head on up to try that game on the third floor (now that we have Pushie), and perhaps poke our head in to see how Dexters getting on inside the coffin.
Hope to see you then, everybody!
Ah, there's the giant anime eyes.
