    Misery Story

    Download Link
    Download at your own risk. Apparently it's playable but I don't know what the fuck I did to it since 0.3b so be careful.

    Known Issues:
    - Ballos may or may not be referred to as Misery's father. Ignore this.
    - It's dead, Jim
    - maybe


    A mod about the witch Misery that takes place in certain time periods before the Doctor seizes the crown. (Events of CS)

    Screenies!

    Cool idea, but the robot invasion takes place long after the crown is made.

    Really? Well, I can change my mod, considering it's not even made.

    Re: Misery Story

    Presumably not in that order.

    The timeline is:

    Lost in the mists of time:

    - Ballos goes nuts

    - Jenka seals Ballos

    - Misery gets Ballos to make the Demon Crown

    - Misery is cursed

    - Halda's and Annachponae's reigns (these are given little fleshing-out, so that makes good fuel for creativity)

    10 years ago:

    - Robots invade, Mimigas use Red Flowers

    - Robots secure Demon Crown for Miakid

    - Miakid unleashes Frenzied Mimigas on the surface

    - Quote and Curly Brace fight Miakid, end up in comas.

    - Miakid is defeated by unknown means (also a good spot for creativity)

    A short while ago:

    - Human expedition team arrives

    - Fuyuhiko Date takes the Demon Crown from Miakid's skull, laughing

    - and the rest is history...

    One thing that's not explained, and could really have happened at any time after Misery was cursed, is how Balrog ended up cursed.

    Interesting idea.

    ...Wow. Thanks for the help!
    I actually didn't know about most of that stuff.
    Well, live and learn.

    Re: Misery Story

    Balrog may have just been a summoned servant or something of Misery's that she never got rid of for whatever reason, possibly because the power of Ballos's curse affected him.
    Gotta love how Pixel has left everything not explicitly shown/displayed in CS up to the player's imagination

    Yes, but why does Balrog refer to Jenka as Auntie?

    Re: Misery Story

    No prob.

    Balrog doesn't look like any of Misery's summoned monsters, though. He looks rather mechanical. There's a theory floating around that he was involved in the invasion of the island.

    Wait, when was this? I don't recall him doing that.

    Meh, my memory's not perfect.

    Re: Misery Story

    Sounds like this mod's beggining to take form... before being started. Do you plan on learning any assembly? Or do you plan on only using Cave Editor?

    Re: Misery Story

    I'm definitely gonna try and learn assembly. Do ya have any suggestions on where to learn it?
    I know you can use ollydbg to see the assembly cave story is made of, I just need to actually know assembly.

    You can use Carrotlord's guide, or just ask a few tips from Noxid. He's the code genius here

    No, I doubt that. It takes a considerable effort to get on my bad side for more than 10-20 minutes at a time.
