You are Demulamu - and your dad has given you a shiny new Pentium for
XMas. You play around with it, and start to be creative.. making code
in QBasic, graphics in Paintbrush, and music in your 16-bit wavetable
multimedia soundcard's sample MIDI program. Still, you thirst for more..
so you check the local BBS's with your Terminal proggy, and find some
kewl demo and music warez.. after you find a player and some code routines
to copy a week later, you make a break into, yes yes, the demo scene!
But noone on the net knows about you so they won't take your warez, and
very few are downloading your stuff off the BBS's. Just as you are about
to run out of hope, you see advertised on c.s.i.p.d.: 'Announcing
Mazzembly '97 Multimedia Demo Gathering'. You quickly grab the invitation
and share it with your dad.. who agrees to take you there! This could
be your big break in the scene! All you need is to build your eliteness
and gain fame. Only Mazzembly makes it possible!
In case you haven't seen Mazz2D, or forgot how to play it, here's the idea.
You advance through levels in the party, walking around, picking up/buying
items, talking to others, eating, sleeping, and even attacking others.
The goal is to accumulate the most Fame points, which you can do by
talking to lamers when you have Elite points (Eptz), or winning compos.
The levels do not get any harder as you progress, but a couple challenges
are added as your Fame/Eptz grow large.
The party starts on Friday at 10:00. Every step/turn you take uses one
minute. The party ends on Sunday at 21:00 (cool Euro military time).
