Starventure: The Curse of Boredom

Post by Star and Moon » Wed May 28, 2014 9:39 pm

To defeat the curse of boredom, we must strike deep into a random somewhat inactive forum and steal a random persons good idea, and claim it as there own until somebody points out that we didn't! OK, I was just kidding about the last part, I take Zero credit for the idea. Get it? ZERO... nevermind.

This is you. You are Star, a random green helmet wearing worm.
Lakeside
Image
You find yourself in a random place, surrounded by random surroundings. Is that supposed to be water? I don't even know...

What do you do?

It appears to be a message in a bottle, and there also seems to be a mysterious liquid inside.
Image
You give it a ridiculously strong yank considering that it's not stuck to anything, generating a lot of friction. At the same time, a mysterious satellite reflects the suns rays.
Image
Yeah, that was a molotov cocktail... the alleged Curse of Boredom seems to be inducing karma upon you.

What do you next?

You successfully cool yourself in the lake. Cool!

>without regard for whether or not head is on fire, investigate mysterious flying lens
Image
You investigate the mysterious flying lens. After close examination, it appears to be a MYSTERIOUS FLYING LENS! Wait, hold on, I can hit the A button... there we go!

Woo! Sorry I'm late, things happening and all, anyway

>throw things at stupid flying lens
Image
OK, first off, holy crap that thing is huge. Nevertheless, you manage to launch the remains of the molotov cocktail by 100% throw free substitute.
Image
Touchdown! Wait, no... Headshot! Wait... that doesn't work either... DIRECT HIT! +5 points!
Image
The sky lens starts flipping off into deep space Frank Poole style.
Image
Well... that was pointless, what next?
Image
...Oh dear... the Sky Len's major rotation seems to be rupturing the tide. WHOOPS!

What the hell do you think you're doing?

You've got x1 Fire Punch on hand, here goes nothing.
Image
And there went nothing.
Image
Oh wait, the water catches on fire. Great, just great.

So what else can happen?

As appealing as the idea of loading the map editor sounds, you are not God. The only things you have are a couple of weapons and utilities... speaking of which, better get going to that far off island thingy, Worms 3D style!
Image
Awww yeah...
Image
The land seems stable enough, but what dark mysteries could it possibly hold? Find out next time on Starventure X!

Eeeh, you'd like to save your ammo, but...

YOU CANNOT DISOBEY THE TEXT!

Well that was pointless.

Image
I am a worm, thanks for noticing!

Aw crud.
