Lost Chums
For those who don't know, this is my personal homestuck fangame project which will be a 2D-jump'n'run thing done in flash HTML5 (switched now xD ). I won't promise that I'll ever get it done but I love working on this. A lot of concept stuff is done so I think I can work on coding some more again soon. The levels would be each in a seperate deviation.

Current Status
working on character controls and sprites.

Basic plot
This is an AU. There is no Sburb or anything (though god tiering will happen but a bit different). The Alpha and Beta kids live on earth in different towns. Alpha kids being friends and Beta kids being friends. Dave knows Dirk since they are brothers but they don't know each other's friends.
One day Jade gets kidnapped by a spaceship commanded by jack noir and John, Dave and Rose leave to rescue her. Jake also got kidnapped so Dirk, Roxy and Jane go to rescue him.
On the spaceship they also find the aliens Karkat and Vriska who they free as well. And. A lot of stuff happens.

Pairings: John x Karkat, Dirk x Jake, Roxy x Jane

I thought I'd be nice and link all of the comics and animated gifs I did for this so far in chronological order. I'm going to try and update this every time I upload LC stuff : D
If you find wrong links please tell me!

Lost Chums (game concept)
This is the game concept file I uploaded to dA. It's not up to date anymore but a lot of things have stayed the same. A lot of things got expanded but it can still give a bit of an overview of this whole thing.
HS - Random game concept thingGeneral notes about gameplay
The idea of this game is based on an old 2D jump'n'run game called Lost Vikings for SNES and PC. In the first part you had 3 vikings, one could jump, one could fight, one had a shield and you had to get all of the vikings to the end of a level by utilising all of their skills. It also had extremely funny dialogue at the beginning and end of each level.
In the 2nd game two characters were added with additional skills so you had 5 characters. You never had more than 3 at the same time though. Through teleporting around and stuff you always had 3 different characters in a level. Mixing around characters like this gives a lot of possibility for interesting level designs.
The game sometimes required a lot of thinking and a LOT of patience to complete because it's partly insanely hard.. but it's so much fun, too.
While playing it again I suddenly wondered what it would be like to have a homestuck game similar to this?.. and that's what started this thing h

hello :) Is this thing still going on?

Actually yes, but I'm not working on it at the moment. I have multiple huge Homestuck projects ongoing and I'm concentrating on ASC at the moment.
I still love this project and will probably get back to it at some point. it might be years from now though so I bet no one will care much anymore. I'm doing this mainly for myself because I personally do care.
I have 2 bigger game projects and I love both of them very much and would love to see them exist. But it's a lot of work, especially the animations of all characters.
I love Homestuck a lot and it's hard to really get me to love a new series etc. I did fall in love with Yuri on Ice though and planning to cosplay viktor but it's not the same as homestuck. I don't have any fanfiction, story or game ideas for that series so I'll stay with homestuck XD

aww thank you so much for the nice comment! I'm also still excited over this but because I'm currently working on other things I'm not working on it right now. I do want to get back to it again at some point though. There is so much concept stuff done for this you have no idea.

Not sure if you saw the latest prototype fav.me/d6lybqo
But that's the style the game will be in.

I have indeed noticed quite a bit of work done for this. It's good you plan to continue work on it. It certainly would be a shame to do all that hard work and end up tossing it in the end. I'm officially keeping an eye out!

The stuff I mean isn't online. I have like.. this HUGE list of all the levels and what happens storywise in every level and who you play as. Also skill lists and tons of dialogue for some scenes already.

Aw yes it would be sad. I tend to give up on projects when I switch fandosm since I always have only one main fandom which I'm super invested in. I always have too many ideas what I want to do for my current fandom so there simply isn't any time for other things any more.
But right now I'm still an enormous homestuck fan, especiallly DirkJake, so I don't see me jumping away from homestuck anytime soon.
So yes, don't expect anything that early but I always have it in the back of my mind~

O.O
Did you do this all on your own??
Either way, I applaud you for your commitment!!

I know exactly what you mean about interest-jumping. I jump from one to another almost every month!! ^.^
Though, there are indeed some that we stick with no matter what. I believe Homestuck has officially become my second constant (the first being Ratchet & Clank, if you're curious).

I shall anticipate with readiness and excitement, but also with patience! ^.^

I did most of it. I have a cowriter who helps me with dialogue and figuring out when what happens because this is kinda like a giant puzzle because I want certain things to happen with certain characters but you only have 3 characters in each level in different configurations. So you also need to keep track who met who already and stuff like that..XD
Coding and drawing is mostly done by me, I had someone help me a bit with pixelling background objects but I did most of it.

Oh I see, I don't know Ratchet & Clank. And I'm currently in one fandom only.XD I don't jump quickly.

are amazing.

AnYONE WHO SAYS OTHERWISE SHOULD DIE A HORRIFYING DEATH ON PAR WITH THE WORST TORTURES IMAGINABLE!!!!!!!!!!!


Sorry, did I get carried away again? ^.^


I'm not surprised you don't know Ratchet & Clank. I really wonder if ANYONE in the Homestuck fandom does other than myself. And if not, am I seriously the only one to come up with a crossover idea??? I seriously googled it; no dice. The heck...?

Where's the game? Is it still being made? If so, I CAN'T WAIT TO PLAY IT!!!

Ah yes it's still being made.XD Currently working on other projects but I still have this in the back of my mind. It's a really big project but I love it dearly and want to work on it again at some point. I have to draw a lot of pixels for this and I'm very slow with that.. So I'm lacking the motivation at the moment. Everytime I'll do something for it I'll link that in the 'Lost Chums Linklist' so the game will be in that list too. eventually. XD
I'm very happy you are excited for this : D Me too, I wish I was faster~~

ChibiEdo Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2012
everything I have so far is linked in this list. XD I guess you haven't read what I wrote at the top of this list so I'll explain.
This thing is nothing to read it's going to be a game. 2D jump'n'run where you can play as 9 characters on the whole. There is no level up so far but I'll post that here when I've finished one (will still be a while though but here is a tiny prototype thing of what it will look like: [link] ).
The pictures and random comic pages I uploaded here are scenes of the plot. Because the main game plot is completely done already and I love it alot so I can't resist drawing stuff XD
There is also sometimes preLC and postLC stuff. Those are things that happen before or after the game itself. Since me and ama (~AnnoyinglyAnalytical )(who is my creative assistant with this) have sooo many ideas for plot those 2 things might become a fanfic. Which she would write then.
