Scorpion Psychiatrists of Saturn

Looks like emma entropy is up to something again.

Three things:

1: Nobody would go to this kind of effort if they didn't like what they were riffing off.

2: If you're not sure if something is offending your sensibilities or ridiculing your opposition, it's probably the one that doesn't make you angry.

3: Remember to install the fonts folder font first!

Converted

32-bit exe version
People with new computers need to be able to play this, too.

I didn't replay the whole thing to make sure the conversion came out okay. I'm not only a naughty hacker ;) but a lazy one, too.

I died and never respawned

I died and never respawned near the end of stage three. There might be too many active objects on screen among all of the fast-moving trail-leaving enemies?

Loving the parody so far.

Edit: Bug occurred in the original exe, not ExciteMike's port.

Edit2: Finished without issues in ExciteMike's version. I loved the secret twist ending.

This is amazing! I

This is amazing! I unfortunately keep experiencing a bug where my psychiatrist disappears forever on level 3, so I haven't gotten past that yet. There's also a minor cosmetic bug where the wrong girl sprite appears after web/lasering them. EDIT: Like Noyb, I'm using the original KNP version.

Nice choice of MIDI cover of All Blues! When I recognized the notes I almost felt like my sensibilities had been offended, but then I remembered another cover of the song (that I love) that many would think is far more questionable.

What did you use to make those character sprites?

Nice!

oh my god, what did I do to

oh my god, what did I do to deserve this? it's not even my birthday or anything!

(ExciteMike's version worked fine for me, right through the ending.)

The same thing just happened

The same thing just happened to me on an earlier level... am I doomed to never pass level 3?

I'm glad people liked this

I'm glad people liked this somewhat!

There are a lot of unfixed (and possibly unfixable) bugs in this game, but I guess that's what happens when you try to do something like this using software written 17 years ago... That's also why I put in level passwords (lev#) and enough secret cheat buttons to bypass the whole game if you need to. As for the people stuck in the walls, the KnP version let me glitch the beam through the wall a bit if I ran up against it, which might help you get past that?

The character portraits were made with elouai's candybar doll maker (with a fair amount of editing in photoshop/paint shop pro 3).

And thanks for the 64bit conversion, ExciteMike! Much appreciated! :D

I beat the game! I love how it just loops Daphny repetedly at the end of the credits.

Not quite! If you sit there

Not quite! If you sit there long enough, it changes.

I didn't want to give away that there was more. But it never actually ends, right?
