Prequel: Making a Cat Cry

I spotted a link to Prequel earlier today.. the words “Oblivion” and “Skyrim” grabbed my attention, so I thought I’d take a quick look.. and well, it’s surprisingly good 🙂

Prequel is an MS Paint-style interactive adventure about a pitiful Khajiit girl called Katia who arrives in Cyrodiil hoping to start a new life.  She doesn’t have any money, or tradeskills, or any luck at all..

Her adventure has taken on some of the suggestions made by those reading it.. some are cruel, some are kind..and others are just hilarious.

I love the cartoon pictures, and I’ve already come across a few special links.. video, and a tiny segment of gameplay, as an Imp trying to kill our hapless heroine.

I’ve seen the like before, in forums, and I’ve toyed with the idea of trying one myself (it’d be good drawing practise!) but this is the first time I’ve really wanted to follow the story and see how it all ends!

Oblivion Kitteh

I’ve started another playthrough of Oblivion, this time as a Khajiit.

This is in part because I want to be a sneaky, sneaky thief.. I want to see the Grey Fox questline.. and in part because Khajiit, along with Argonians, were often slaves in the previous game, and I expect to come across some different dialogue if not outright hatred from some people.

The unlimited night-vision “Eye of Night” will probably see a lot of use while sneaking around stealing stuff.. in the meantime it just looks good to have something different!  I’m also a fan of Kitteh’s acrobatics, though I levelled this fairly quickly in the past due to my short-cuts across rough ground.

On my first playthrough I decided to go my own way rather than rush to find Martin.
This meant that when I got to the first Oblivion gate, I was far higher level than I should have been, and the NPCs were slaughtered rather than providing me with a nice little group to go into battle with.  This time round I’m pretty much aiming to do more of the main story before heading out to wreak havok 🙂

I’m only hoping to get this done before the release of Skyrim, in November, as I suspect there’ll be little time for other games once I have that 😉
