1  Bit Blot / Off-Topic / Alec Holowka died Saturday on: September 04, 2019, 09:09:31 PM
I just heard the news today.


Aquaria was the first indie game I owned and this forum was the first internet community I joined. Alec struggled with mental illness and it caused as much pain to others as it did to himself. He will be missed nonetheless.

Thanks for the work.
3  Aquaria / General / Re: Why is Aquaria not on GOG? on: January 12, 2015, 03:47:38 PM
I really couldn't say. I think both Alec and Derek have moved on to other projects for good.

My god it might not be a spammer.

Oh, the irony of spam posts in the spam thread...

It's brutal.

DOSBox is a tool used to play games published a decade or longer ago (e.g. Frogger). The latest version of Aquaria was designed to run on XP and Vista. Open up Aquaria, then alt+tab back to the desktop and right-click the taskbar on the bottom. Open up Task Manager and make sure you're using less than 50% CPU/RAM. Your computer might not be able to run the game - Aquaria uses a lot of anti-aliasing.

I'm Chekonjak on Reddit. One of the members gave me a key for making him laugh.  Grin Link to thread.

In related news, I made the front page with this post.

So this time the player controls li instead of Naija? Roll Eyes That's cool!
Fixed that for you. Have you played the game yet? If not, Aquaria is the name of the world/game, and Naija is the name of the protagonist.

Emmanuel hasn't posted in years. I've said this before, but PLEASE look at the dates before you post.

Sea Dragons and a strange fish with a worm in its mouth can both be ridden (in the Kelp Forest). I'm not quite sure about the latter.

Welcome back! I only realize how useful the Internet really is when I lose access to it...  Wink
13  Aquaria / Gameplay / Re: Proof that the Nightmare segment IS winnable (found on YT) on: April 18, 2010, 07:46:56 PM
I agree that this guy is clearly the master of Aquaria.  I've gotten as far as killing most of the pink-bullet-shooting guys in the final room, and I've managed to flee to the exit on at least 1 occasion.  But every time I try to fight that super-boss I lose.  Those bullets move crazy fast!
I've successfully escaped by the seat of my pants ( Roll Eyes ) every time, but I haven't played Aquaria in over a year...
14  Aquaria / General / Don't count on an XBLA release. on: April 11, 2010, 11:10:58 PM
After six months of negotiations, Microsoft denied the creators of Machinarum access to the system, citing exclusivity issues (the Mac and Linux release).  Angry Looks like the PSN and Wii are the best bets if Alec and Derek are considering a console version.

Article on Kotaku

[EDIT]: I seem to be having trouble with the link - does it work for you guys? If not, just search for "Machinarum" on the Kotaku homepage.

Very well done. I like the increased contrast.  Smiley
