So a couple of movie producers decided to make an E.T rip-off but said, "Let's make the aliens 1,000 times stupider and uglier looking. Also, let's have a scene where the little alien goes after the kid he has been terrorizing for the last couple of days with power tools. Making a hole through a wall like Jack Nicholson in The Shining.
There is the infamous wheelchair scene where the kid goes careening down a hill and off a cliff going about Mach 5 into a lake. Yeah, you are not calling an ambulance. You are calling a morgue at the speed he hit that water. The alien pushes him and his wheelchair to the surface (Somehow with nothing to stand on) then out of the lake completely despite having the body of Starvin Marvin from South Park. The alien doesn't have super strength or telekinetic powers. So how he does any of this is beyond me. He does have the homewrecking skills of a bull in a China shop though.
Further on in the movie, they end up at a 13 year-old-girls b-party at a McDonald's. Where for some reason there about 50 18-year-old teenage boys breaking dancing outside. Because I guess there is crap all else to do in the town. Meanwhile, Ronald McDonald himself makes a guest appearance. He makes a couple of balloon animals for a few kids then vanishes afterward. Which is too bad because I wanted to see one of the government agents chasing after the world's most hideous sea monkey say, "Out of the way you fricking clown!"
Now, the most ridiculous part of the movie was the ending where the alien family becomes U.S citizens. I kid you not. In reality, they end up in some top government facility being experimented on or on an autopsy table like a frog in a science class.

I thought it was cute when I first saw it, because all the product placement flew over my head at that age. Yes, it was a poor man's ET, but it was still cute.

I just looked this up on Rotten Tomatoes. It received 38%. I only watched it on MST3K. It was the only thing that made it bearable. I agree with 'The Zeros' on Rotten Tomatoes. This should have been a horror movie. I know this thing would have given me nightmares as a kid. He also drew the line that Mac a.k.a Mysterious Alien Creature was instead meant for Big Mac too. Mysterious? No. Horrifically grotesque? Yes.

Ugh, I opened MV after a few weeks and I'm completely lost on what I was working on.
Does it happen to someone else or am I the only disorganized one around? :kaoswt:

hmm in exploring MZ with FOSSIL... I see I'll probably need to stick with MV for now as none of the menu altering plugins I use work on MZ lol. and I don't have the money to dump into what I would need in some cases to update plugins to their MZ versions. Everytime I think of converting, 5 or more reasons popup on why I shouldn't.
Hmm... Game has 91 views, 25 downloads, 5 reviews and netted me 7 additional followers. Meanwhile the image I posted just yesterday on Imgur to showcase it has 45,197 views. Interesting, I think I have a new advertising idea. Also Twitter? The post got 16 retweets, 20 likes, and 1,683 views.... And a whole 3 hits to my game, completely valueless. I am glad I did this game jam, this information is quite valuable.
We're playing another Touch the Stars game jam entry, come join us! :D
