SK Running Kat Competition - More text lines for Dark Kat

Post by Mr. Goodkat » Mon Aug 29, 2016 4:12 am

I'm looking for more text which Dark Kat can say at the end of SWAT Kats - Running Kat. I already came up with two monologues Dark Kat uses to tease the player, but I think this can be improved by adding more of them and it would be cool if they would come from other people than just me.

That's why I've decided to start a competition for this right here in this thread.


So, how does it work and what do you have to keep in mind?

Dark Kat has four different states which can be displayed:

These states can be arranged in an arbitrary order and can be used as often as needed.
In each of those states a textline can be displayed (which probably only makes sense for the talk-state in most cases). If you're not sure when to use the idle-state then don't mind it as I can add it whenever necessary when integrating your monologue into the game.
I think it's best if I gonna post the lines I came up with in my next posts to show how your suggestions should look like.

I'm gonna add every suggestion into the game that gets at least 3 likes. This voting also concerns the ones which I've already integrated into the game as well. So if you think these fit well into the game then please like them by clicking the like-counter displayed at the right bottom of these posts.

When you post a suggestion please have the rules of this forum in mind which will also be applied to your suggestions.

Please also have in mind that these texts for Dark Kat shouldn't be teasers like "You're so bad! Why don't you play with a plushy toy instead?" thus discouraging the player to try again. They should rather be encouraging the player to play again and again.

You might ask yourself now: "If this is a contest, what's to win?"
Well, besides receiving my thanks, every author of a monologue which is added to the game will be mentioned in the credits.

The deadline for this competition is: September, 18th 2016

So, what are you waiting for? Start imagining what Dark Kat would say! :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

I postpone the deadline by a few days such that the new one is: September, 28th.
I think it also doesn't hurt to reduce the minimum likes to 2.

If there aren't any more suggestions until the next deadline, I simply add the one LowdogCraft already has provided (which has 2 likes already anyway). ;)

So it would be really cool if there would be a few more for me to add. :D

Not sure if these qualify as encouraging to re-play:
My invincible obstacle course is unbeatable...
...even for the SWAT Kats

You can aim for the high score...
...but in the end I always win
These are re-purposed lines on dialogue from the show:
So much for the SWAT Kats...
...Now, where was I? Oh yes. Doomsday!

The high score keeps increasing...
...Will I never be rid of those infernal SWAT Kats?
This is a little bit more challenging than I thought, as there isn't a traditional goal or completion to allude to with the dialogue.
