  • Where did you hear about Ville or his Games?

    Notrium entered my consciousness when a certain friend of mine glorified Ville and practically ordered me to download it. I played it for a while and now I play it once in a while. It is quite entertaining and complex for a freeware, so I grew fond of it.

    That's a familiar story I think. That's how I got here about 2 years ago.

    Extremely long and pointless version:
    I remember it as though it were yesterday... Thursday, the 8th of July, 2004 was a sunny afternoon. I had bought a NetGuide magazine from the Supermarket on the way home from school, and had crammed the disc into my computer without even reading what was on it... I saw Notrium in the Games section, downloaded it, and started playing. It was version 0.9 or summin' like that. All one big map, not a bunch of small ones, only one ending (I think, it was the repair-then-take-off-in-shuttle/capsule-thing ending), and to combine items one had to complete that son of a bitch puzzle thing with the circles and the lining them up and the press and hold down F11 to automatically complete the puzzle. Once I had figured the F11 cheat out, it was simple matter of finding the crapz, combining the crapz, and adding a "z" to the end of plurals instead of a "s", and it was all GEWD (I escaped Notrium). Yeah. Then I like got bored of the game and looked up the website and the URL had something like "kapsi" in it or summin' like that and it said that that was no longer the website address and to go here and I got redirected to "http://www.monkkonen.net" and then I signed up to the forums and then on the Seventh Day, God did shit-all, and he saw that it was GEWD (I posted on the forums then dissapeared and reappeared numerous times, before starting anew with my account Zephyr).

    Simple version:
    I bought a mag, looked up monkkonen.net, and yeah.

    Like, wow.

    Anyone who owns that first version nowadays is a diety, because nobody kept it... not even Ville.

    –noun, plural -ties.
    1. a god or goddess.
    2. divine character or nature, esp. that of the Supreme Being; divinity.

    Alright, now that that question has been answered, I suggest we get back on topic.

    Yeah, you meant deity, not "diety", which is why I WTFed my pants when I read that... It makes sense now.

    Sadly, I checked, and that disc is scratched-ZORRED. It also had the Avernum 3 demo on it, which is one of the best games I've ever played. *sob*

    If it's scratched, you may be able to recover some of the data by cleaning it well. I have a disk that has a friggin crack right through it, and it works!

    ... But seriously, we should be getting on topic. You have your explanation. Enjoy. If you need more help with the disk, you can PM me so that Idiota dosen't go crazy.

    That sounded funny.

    I meant that it sounded funny as a synonym for wierd. Honestly, I wrote that part without even thinking before I realized what I had done and added all the dots.

    Apparently, but it doesn't matter because it's a sticky.

    I heard about Notrium from a now out-of-print Australian gaming magazine called Total Gamer. Pity, that was the best magazine ever!

    Well... I was bored really. So I just typed "freeware" games into the search bar! Best thing I ever did 8D

    Idiota 8 years ago
    Hmm... I remember looking for freeware on a site called Megagames. And huzzah, recently (like 2 months ago but still) celebrated my 4-year anniversary here. I really wonder what my life would have looked like if I never became part of these forums. :p Am I the only one who is sure that these forums can change a life?

    A friend from school. He was crazy about it...
    I asked him about it 2 months later, and he said: "What Notrium?"

    I saw Notrium on Acidplay, while mindlessly searching for some game that would entertain me. Of course back then it was 1.2 (and yes, I did get bored of it after modding to the point where it did things I never came up with ). I became interested again once I found 1.341 though.

    Is it a little late to post? The last post was half a year ago. ops:

    Well, I found out about Notrium in a freeware games website. It said that the game was basically Robinsion Crusoe IN SPACE, so I gave it a try. The thing turned to be quite difficult, so I came here to look for help, and from there, I found about the other games.

    I think I've heard about that review before. Anyhow, hi! Welcome to the forums, I think.
