The almighty Ralren and the Legendary Grave.exe present after tumultuous amounts of awesome...
Teterraro is everything. It is you, it is the world. Teterraro knows everything. You will never escape from Teterraro, you will never defeat Teterraro.
Hello, this is Ralren, obviously you guys know me. With the celebration of my joining anniversary (May 6th, 2009), me and a good friend of mine, Grave.exe will proudly present the very, very last Cavestory mod made by yours truly. First things first though, does this relate to any Cavestory mod that I've made in the past? No. This mod has absolutely nothing to do with Cavestory, it's something completely different. No Mimigas, no Quotes, no Balrgos.. It's all custom and new.
There is no storyline in Teterraro. Not even a little smirk of storyline.. All you know is that you're in a dreamworld. Everything in Teterraro doesn't make any sense. Clouds don't move, Monsters don't make sense, Characters don't make sense.. It's just a dream..
What we want to do is to make players confused. We want them to get inside the mod, and try to dissect every tiny piece of symbolic information, and come up with theories. In Teterraro, we also want players to feel differently as they play the game.. You could consider this a big interactive "Mind-Fuck" if you wish.
The experience in Teterraro will be an experience that none of you have ever felt before.. Ambient music, mysterious sounds.. Lush, amazing environments.. Something you would never expect from a mod. The gameplay mechanic will also be slightly altered, introducing the new "Shell Selection System".
In the beginning of the mod, you will hear words from it.. yourself, that is. Teterraro. It says words to you, with no sign of introduction whatsoever. Right after you "talk to yourself", or "the world tells you", you will spawn from a gate of souls. There, you appear as a mysterious soul.. anxiously waiting to find a body to take over.
There are three realms in Teterraro. Equinox, Illiriumer, and Wrath.
Equinox is where you start, being the most safest, comforting area in the mod.. It will even make you feel at home, loving every second of it.. Chimes and wind blows through the massive hallways of countless sky-scraping towers.. Equinox's setting is "Heavenly", taking place high above the mellow skies.. As you progress through the mod, you will descend lower from the unexpected realm Illiriumer, to the undefinable realm of Wrath. Teterraro will not allow us to speak of these other two realms, because they are not lucid. No one understands or remembers these realms unless they experience it themselves..
What are "shells"? They are individuals, like you. They do things just like you, but to be under control of a soul. Each shell has a different weapon, and a special aspect to them. Some of these shells have high health, but with a very poor weapon, while some other shells have strong weapons, but have average to low health. Some shells will have weapons that can shoot through walls, etc. Each level in Teterraro will require you to switch through different shells, and they can be switched in savepoints (Checkpoints) at any time during the levels. You unlock shells by either completing or starting a new level. Some shells can be unlocked by finding secrets.
During the development of Teterraro, I will be doing the TSC, Mapping, Spriting, Music, and concepts. Grave will be doing the same with me together. We're very excited to introduce Teterraro to the community, and we hope all of you hold on tight, because this will be a mod experience like none-other. Teterraro is known to be a "Hell Mod", being fast paced and nothing but traps and full-fledged action.
