Amiga Tribute: Entity by LukeTheRipper Amiga Tribute: Entity by LukeTheRipper
The nameless heroine from Entity

Part 19/24 of my Amiga tribute project >3

Heh, slowly but surely, I'm getting these done. Aaaanyways, today we have a game you could might as well call "Because Boobs", but it's actual name is Entity.

Heh, where do I start... well, maybe lets start by saying this game sucks, it sucks as much as a prostitute the main heroine was probably inspired by... and yet it was a VERY successful game sales wise. Why? Because boobs.

Seriously, first we have the "story", which is about our heroine who does apparently not have a name, and her struggle against the titular, yet similarly unnamed "entity". The "entity" is some kind of evil space deity that has freshly escaped it's cliche space confinement, and a good space deity faces out heroine and goes "there's no time to explain" on her, or at least that's what appears to be the most likely scenario as the intro features no explanation (nor does the manual), and we see the good space deity appearing before our heroine and teleporting her to a distant planet to save it from the evil "entity", but not before shifting her wardrobe from casual clothes to a skimpy latex suit which apparently gives her mystical powers so she can shoot fireballs at stuff.

And speaking of fireballs, now a few words about the gameplay. It sucks.
For one, anyone who's seen the screenshots was fooled that the game looks good, with great graphics and all, too bad the graphics, as nice as it looks, is just a cheap wallaper without any parallax, with some sprites running around on it... and that is actually a serious flaw with this kind of graphics, for one, you can never determnine what is what, whether a part of the cheap wallpaper is supposed to be a platform or a pitfall, you will never know unless you try and jump on it...
That, and getting back to the fireballs, they do shit... seriously, even though you can fire them at different angles, it only goes from the horizontal line of your fists and UP... what's the big deal you might ask, hehe, consider this, most of the enemies you face are BELOW your fists horizontal line, and you CAN'T hit 'em even when crouching XD so yeah, what good are fancy fireballs when your enemy will kill you by gnawing on your ankles and there is NOTHING you can do about it XD

Heh, and to top it all off, you don't actually do anything, yes, your actions have absolutely NO impact on the ending, as when you are battling the evil "entity", the good space deity comes and defeats it instead, effectively making your whole trip to another planet completely obsolete XD

So yeah, with all that you might wonder how this game outselled a lot of really great Amiga title... the answer, because boobs...
Heh, as shallow as it may be, sex sells and has always sold, and it's not like we had a whole lot of fanservice in video games back in the days. The fames Peach or Samus were pixelated messes, and nobody, NOBODY cared for either anyway, fighting games had Chun Li and Mai Shiranui, but first you had to be lucky enough to even know they existed (not all countries got these games easily, at least not FF2), and no, before you ask, Lara Croft wasn't even invented XD (and I was actually asked that when I mentioned the lack of fanservice in the early 90's XD).
So yeah, back then this nameless babe was enough to sell the game. Didn't do her much good considering there is not a single piece of fanart of this game. And yes, that is partially why I decided to include it in my tribute project, partially out of pity (c'mon, she didn't even have a name, so lets at least let her have some fanart |D), partially because I wanted to highlight how such a bad game could sell well with cheap fanservice, partially because I wanted to go AVGN on an Amiga game, and parially... because boobs XD

Other parts of the project - Shadow Of The Beast, Shadow Fighter, Zool, The Chaos Engine, Superfrog, Skeleton Krew, The Speris Legacy, Flashback, Agony, Brutal: Paws of Fury, Fightin' Spirit, Ruff 'N' Tumble, SwitchBlade, Lionheart, The Lost Vikings, Brian The Lion, Wolfchild, Gods, Entity, Franko: The Crazy Revenge, Hired Guns, Turrican, The Killing Game Show, Yo! Joe!

Awww she deserves a name
I wonder if you will get flocked by her fans since there's no other fan art

I don't think she has any XD if she had, she'd have at least a few fanarts out there |3
She has no name, no personality, and no actual fanbase remaining (as anyone who was drooling over her back in the days has most probably moved on to other attractive game heroines who actually have a name and a personality to match their bodies).

I mostly did this pic as a countermeasure, so that it wouldn't look like I'm only praising AMiga games and denying any bad apples that appeared along the way, and at the very least this game presented itself better than most of Amiga's other bad apples |D

That's true actually haha
That's good thinking most people would just do the best ones. That makes this project even more unique

Well, it's not like all I chose are the "best" games that Amiga had to offer. I merely chose the ones I liked most or wanted to showcase the most ^^

Yeah... seems to work too... I must say I was hesitant to submit this fearing it would get more feedback than some other arts I did...
This took a day to finish and got so many comments already, yet the Dark Dizzy pic I submitted before this one only got 2 so far... (it did get way more favs though)

So it seems the magic of boobs works still |D

Thanks >3
You might have noticed by now, but I'm a huge fan of female legs, so I put extra effort into drawing these >3
And this unnamed lass has one of those Chun Li type "thunder thighs" so I did my best to draw them appropriately XD

I never knew this game existed!

That's probably a good thing... ;)

Actually, no it's not.
In a twisted kind of way it's good to know there are terrible games out there, in a way it makes you appreciate the good titles even more XD

On the other hand, wasting your time on a game as terrible as this one, now that is bad. So just take a peek at the link I provided, check the game and see for yourself what have you been missing XD

You're quite right sir, I hadn't thought of it like that! I stand corrected. :)

I've followed your link and the game looks down right awful! It does make the good games look better. :D

I remember I tried it out once, tempted by the screenshots... and after mere minutes I was back playing the titles I actually enjoyed, trying to forget I ever put this piece of trash into my my drive |D

Coś mi świta, to jest ta gra w którą nigdy nie grałem, widziałem na YT, a jak próbowałem w to grać to mi nie szło :) Grywalnie była to gra mocno średnia, ale graficznie widoczki były ładne :)

Heh, nic nie straciłeś, trust me XD
Gra nie była tak zła jak nasze rodzime abominacje typu Łowca Głów lub Super TaeKwonDo Master, ale grywalnie była naprawde dużo poniżej tylko średniej |D
I grafika jest ładna na screenach, w praniu traci znaczną część wszelkiego uroku |D

Hehe, thanks |3

Heh, seems the magic of boobs is working... I spend a shitload of time on a pic and it barely gets any comments (like my last MMX entry...), but when I whip up a quick art of a woman with big boobs, it gets that many people commenting overnight |D
