This video was created to show off to the people at the Voice Acting Alliance Forums, to maybe convince them to help me out with voice acting, but I figured it might be of interest to people who’re just looking forward to the game, so here it is:

If you would like to help with voice acting, please read my post in that thread. Thanks!

Welp, here it is. A short peek at Merry Gear Solid 2: The Ghosts of Christmas Past. The video showcases a couple of the items that you’ll be using this time around, but I’ve edited out all but the very first opening of the inventory, since I don’t want to give too much of the game away. Feel free to post speculation and cunning observations in this post. I’m too sober to care.

Do yourself a favor and watch in high quality!

Also, as you can hear, the music in Merry Gear Solid 2 isn’t really as good as it could be. If you’ve got the chops (and really, I need real, meaty chops here), put down a comment here and maybe you can lend me a hand. But like I said, I’ll be needing a lot of talent and effort this time around, since the game will be a longer. Anyways, enjoy the vid. PEACE OUT.

EDIT:Thanks to all that offered — I believe I’ve found myself a musician now!

To all my Underside fans, skip this post, because it might make you a little upset at what I’ve been doing in my free time. Everyone else feel free to read ahead.

As is apparent from the image above, I’ve been hard at work on Merry Gear Solid 2: The Ghosts of Christmas Past. I’ve now completely outlined the plot, and I’ve begun work on the script. Fans of the Metal Gear Solid series won’t be disappointed, as I’ve made every effort to make the story and dialogue as convoluted and incomprehensible as possible.

The game engine is written from scratch, ditching the old grid-based movement from the first Merry Gear Solid, and adding 8-directional movement.

Reprising his role from the first Merry Gear Solid is Duncan, who did all the voicework in the first game in an incredibly short amount of time. Yes, that Duncan. With the amount of time I’ve allotted to developing the sequel, hopefully the quality of the recordings will not be MERELY PASSABLE.

The release date will, of course, be some time in December.
