Fairly Dangerous [Dark Comedy][NaNoReno2015]

#1 Post by kaleidofish » Wed Apr 01, 2015 11:58 pm

Fairly Dangerous


We've seen it before: human gets put in a new fantasy environment and the natural world helps enlighten him to the harshness of an industry. Fern Gully and Avatar, I'm looking at you.

But what happens when the opposite takes place? Five tiny fairy friends are about to find out. Hiding in a hiker's backpack, they get taken away from the Enchanted Forest they call home and taken to a rank apartment. Now they have to avoid hazards like microwaves, rat traps, and more. Can you make it out of this fairly dangerous place alive?

This is a dark comedy visual novel with horror and tragicomedy elements. This is not for the squeamish.

Android users: now you can take Fairly Dangerous with you wherever you go! And if itch.io doesn't work for you, we've also got a mirror on Game Jolt. Please note that there is an error on the Android version. The "Help" button on the main menu doesn't work the way it should. This will be fixed in its next version.

Congratulations on finishing!!

I had a lot of fun playing this and seeing all the different gruesome ways I could kill off my friends, haha!

I was able to get a handful of endings, but I was wondering
is there an ending where everyone survives? In addition to this, I was never able to get an ending for Lav where she wasn't devoured by the rat. I felt like I was always answering her questions wrong to not let me get an alternative ending for her.
Any tips? :D

Hi! The art really is <3 ! I love it! Yep I enjoyed the bad endings :twisted: I want to see more. Is there a walkthrough for this? 16 endings, that's a lot! I really hope there's a walkthrough. I find Saffron the prettiest...
And I hate to shove her into that bottle... :cry:

@Heiden: thank you!! we had a lot of fun making it! :D
and no, there is no ending where all of your friends can live-- berry will always die no matter what! poor girl :( but you can get saffron, pistacia, mentha, and lav home safely!! to get lav home safely, you have to indulge her random questions about the rat. i wasn't involved with the coding so i can't tell you exactly what works, but during my playthrough, "they both tend to disappear" > "with a trap"/"questionable garments" was what got me there. k-fish could probably answer this better, sorry! but yeah, that's how you keep lav alive!
@Fake Existence: thanks a bunch!! <3 i don't know about a walkthrough, that sounds cool though?? gotta defer to my other team members on that one though! and i'm glad you think saffron is the prettiest! the fairies were actually based on the group dynamics of "brains, brawn, beauty, wildcard, and the useless chick". and saffron was the beauty!! :D (gold star for whoever guesses the rest!)

additionally!!! happy birthday to the one and only kaleidofish! i drew something for her and i figured i'd share it here since it's relevant!

Is there some sort of guide for getting all the endings? I can only get 10 out of the 16
strength
style
strangeness
strength/style
strength/strangeness
style/strangeness
strength/style/strangeness
solo survival
bug light
slammed

so that's every possible combination of friend survival plus two total death endings... what more are there?

Thanks for the nice comments, everyone! Glad you guys had fun. Making this was a joy and a half.

@tilly:

*SCREAMS AGAIN*

@Heiden:
Tilly pretty much answered this. There's a couple of ways to answer the quiz so she lives. Tilly's method is one of the ones that works.
@Fake Existence & idkwhatusername:

I just posted a walkthrough here on my site. Hope that helps! :D

For anyone who only wants to see a list of endings...
Zapped (2 different versions)
Orb (3 different versions)
C'mon and Slam (3 different versions)
Survived with Smarts Only
Survived with Strength
Survived with Style
Survived with Strength and Style
Strangely Returned to the Enchanted Forest
Strangely & Strongly Returned to the Enchanted Forest
Strangely & Stylishly Returned to the Enchanted Forest
Every Way but Sweetly Returned to the Enchanted Forest
When I was making the walkthrough, I came across a coding error that makes it so that there's a conversation missing. It doesn't prevent you from finishing the game and reaching those endings, but it does make the scene abruptly switch mid-conversation. The conversation is supposed to be the same one if you choose "make a deal."

The fix will be included in the v1.1 update. But if you can't wait and you're Ren'py savvy enough, you can do this to your script.rpy...
Change "if saffron >= 2 and pistacia_poisoned:" to "if saffron >= 2" on line 4523.
or download this script.rpy and replace the old scipt.rpy with that.

So Berry still dies no matter what. I know she's useless... So maybe that's the reason she's the first one to die... :cry:
Anyway, I'm done with all the endings! I finally got the ending where the fairies return back to their homes! It was fun with the bad endings but of course, I needed to see the happy ending, too. Thanks for the link to the walkthrough! I really enjoyed this VN! Thanks for making it!

Actually, in response to
Berry's inevitable death
:
It was more of a decision between which death we wanted to see through all the routes, since we needed at least one death to start everything spiraling downwards. Berry's death was the most developed one(and most interesting one), being the first death that k-fish came up with, so we stuck with that.
Thanks for the support! :D

Oh, and I'll shamefully admit that I too haven't gotten the
"Everyone survives"
ending yet. :P

This is the world's latest response, but yaay! Thank you for the help! I was able to get all the endings!


I really really enjoyed this VN! It was both funny in parts but also really horrifying! (In a good way)

Is it alright if I drew fanart? :oops:

Great concept and mostly interesting characters...Unfortunately I kind of hate the protagonist and want to strangle her. She is completely insufferable. Still, though, I do like the game enough to continue trying for some different endings. My first time I fucked up everything completely and killed all the fairies. Then next time I managed to get everyone out on a rat...Yay?
