  • Wait, so trying to predict what someone else will potentially worry over, and writing four paragraphs about it isn't over-thinking?

  • Also, keep in mind that the Script is written by the Brothers Chaps (Telltale is only making it into an awesome Adventure game), so it's to as close as Canon as possible.

  • The script is written by us, actually, with review and input from TBC.

    I sit in my chair corrected.

    Edit: but since it's reviewed by TBC, I guess that makes it officially TBC in the same sense Splinter Cell is "officially" Tom Clancy.

  • I'm officially confused. And your excuse for not over thinking is terrible.

  • Here's my take on things.

    In Cyan's Myst series, it was revealed that all the numbered games (and possible also Uru) aren't accurate representations of the events of the Myst continuity. They are officially the games based upon those events that were created within the Myst universe around the time of Uru, which takes place on Earth in the present day.

    I believe the same to be the case with SBCG4AP, except probably with much less game inaccuracy. The series appears to exist within the Homestar Runner universe as well as in our own. I believe that it is based upon actual events that took place within the Homestar Runner universe (recent events, most likely) but Telltale Games has the right to be at least a little inaccurate for reasons of playability and enjoyability.

    There's also the problem of Telltale Games knowing about things they normally couldn't possibly know and putting them in the game, to which I say: they have ways.

  • this whole myst example doesn't actually make it esasier to understand...
    anyway, this whole canon thing is completely overrated. i usually see it like this: everything is in, unless it contains events that have a huge impact, but are ignored later. if someone dies, but later is around again, then, i guess, that wasn't canon. like with the simpsons halloween specials..

    you shouldn't worry to much about the other stuff.

    I've just fixed a major typo in my previous post, maybe that was the problem, but probably not. I'll explain the basic idea: the games (both the Myst series and, apparently, SBCG4AP) exist in both the fictional universes and also in our own. The games we have are NOT actual canonical games, although they're close enough. The games we have are from the fictional universes themselves. They are based upon things that happened in those universes but probably aren't 100% accurate because they were made within those universes.

    In short, SBCG4AP is a probably imperfect representation of canonical events, pulled from within the Homestar Runner universe itself.

    Man, I'm such a nerd.

  • dudes, as long as you got hr wiki or the brother chaps, then you got no problem with making it not sound like a regular 3D cartoon.

  • SCGAP? Abbreviating an abbreviation? Is that supposed to be "Strong Cool Game Attractive People" or "StroCoGaAtPe" or something even more cool?
