Escaped Chasm Guide & Endings Walkthrough

Escaped Chasm is a brand new, Pay What You Want game on itchio by Temmie Chang. You probably know her from Undertale, but this game is an unrelated project by Temmie herself!

I believe this guide is complete (the game’s fairly small), but as always if I missed anything please let me know in the comments! Or just let everyone know what you thought of the game.

Escaped Chasm Mini-Review

Escaped Chasm is a tiny but very engrossing little game. For the price of free and the light time investment of ~20 minutes for a playthrough, it’s very much worth a playthrough.

The game’s heavier and sadder themes may be a surprise to those already familiar with Temmie’s work, which makes the early impact of the game quite the hook.

While short the game makes great use of it’s time and leaves you feeling for our Lonely Protagonist. Some Temmie-Brand bits of humor are dotted throughout,

Gameplay Spoilers
especially in the Developer Room!

While something of a prelude to a more complete game that may or may not happen, Escaped Chasm is a very intriguing romp through a puzzling world. Here’s hoping we’ll eventually see a follow up to answer the many questions the game leaves us with.

Escaped Chasm Walkthrough

Note there’s no save feature, it’s short and meant to be played in one go. Turn off Dash in the options before playing, it causes a bug and does not increase your walking speed.

The game doesn’t have combat or what would normally be considered puzzles, so play at your own pace and figure things out before resorting to the guide. I’ve written the fastest way to finish each day (for replays) and noted extra items to collect here.

You can hold down the Z key to speed up dialog you’ve already seen. Do not press X when at the Diary Menu, it ends the game. If the game crashes when you watch the TV, turn off dashing in the options menu. You can also control with the mouse instead of the keyboard.

Day 1

All you have to do to finish this day is check on Melody (her snake) and read your diary, then you can go to bed.

Pokecord: Discord Pokemon Game Guide & Command List

My Discord Server started playing Pokecord and it’s not exactly well documented, so I thought I’d make a guide with basics and commands to help people get going!

The game has several undocumented commands not listed in the official command list on their website, so check out the full(er?) list here!

Updates

2019-05-13: Found an Evolution Spreadsheet since many pokemon have non-standard evolutions in Pokecord.

2019-05-08: Thanks to @DocSigma for pointing out the undocumented p!shrink command! Added it to the list

2019-05-03: Pokecord now has a “real” pokedex and a 50 credit reward for pokemon caught after this update. Use p!collection to see the “old” pokedex. Updated the command list.

Pokecord Basics

How Pokecord works is it pulls Pokemon data from Bulbapedia. Each pokemon has base stats, IVs, a Nature, Moves, and can potentially be Shiny (presumably at the standard astronomically low rate).

Pokemon can be traded and fought (1 v 1), and there’s no penalty for losing a fight and no reason not to catch or trade anything. There’s no winning or losing the game, so you can play as casually or intensely as you like.

Pokecord isn’t a perfect Pokemon clone however. Some important points to note: Pokemon do not have teams or abilities in Pokecord (right now). Your ability to earn money is limited to dueling (a pittance), voting for Pokecord daily on Discord Bots (kinda…icky), or selling pokemon on the ingame market (which is pretty weird).

Where To Play Pokecord

You can play on any Discord server that has Pokecord enabled. You can either invite the bot to your own server, join our server (we’re well moderated!), or join the official pokecord server (expect catching spawns to be incredibly competitive).

Spawns seem to be a combination function of time and how many messages posted, meaning a more active server means more pokemon—but also more competition to catch those pokemon. On fast, popular servers, mobile users have a pretty strong disadvantage compared to keyboard users.

Quickstart

Once the bot is in your server, pokemon will start to spawn based on time and number of posts. Type p!start to get started, then p!pick (starter name) to select a starter.

When a pokemon appears, the first to correctly p!catch it gets it. There’s no limit to how many pokemon you can get, so there’s no reason (other than politeness) to not catch a pokemon. In a server with friends, consider letting other players catch pokemon you already have (alternately, catch them and trade them to who wants them for free).

It helps to add all pokemon you’re planning to duel with to your favorites list, so you don’t have to go through the whole pokemon list every time. Pokemon are always referenced by number not name in commands, so this will help you find the numbers quickly.

Pokemon level just by chatting in a server with Pokecord active; only your active pokemon gets experience this way though, so be sure to p!select who you want to raise. Without an Everstone (in p!shop), Pokemon that can evolve via level will automatically evolve at that level with no cancel prompt.

Duels are very buggy but there is no harm in losing, so do them as much as you want. See the Duel Commands section below for pitfalls.

What’s Missing/Different In Pokecord

As far as I can tell these are the major differences/omissions from Pokecord

  • Teams/battles for more than 1v1 pokemon
  • Status/stat changing moves do not work at all
  • Pokemon gender, meaning some evolutions are presumably random? and some moves likely do not work
  • You can’t cancel evolutions manually, you must buy and hold an everstone
  • Held items only exist for evolving or preventing evolution
  • Abilities are also completely omitted
  • There is no breeding of pokemon
  • Mega Evolutions work differently and are semi-permanently activated out of battle. Use p!mega to toggle Mega Evolution state rather than having them hold the stone in battle.
  • Aside from selling pokemon (Team Rocket, anyone?) there’s no effective way to get money at a reasonable scale
  • Any pokemon can be a random spawn, including baby pokemon, legendary pokemon, starters, and evolved forms that aren’t usually available.

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince Guide

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince just launched, so here’s a spoiler-free walkthrough for achievements and 100% completion! I loved the game (impressions video here) so I figured I’d help others enjoy it as well!

The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince Game Info

Title: The Liar Princess and the Blind Prince
Platform: Nintendo Switch, PS4
Language: English, Japanese
Release date: 2019-02-12 (English)
Developer: Nippon Ichi Software, localized by NIS America
Price: $40 at launch
Genre: Puzzle/Platformer

Updates

2019-02-14: Walkthroughs for Full Moon with the Prince, Chapter 5 and final boss added! Walkthrough complete!
2019-02-13:
Chapter 4 walkthrough added. Added most enemy info.
2019-02-12:
The game is released! The PS4 theme is free today

General Tips/FAQ

  • First and foremost, this is not a “Guide Dang It” game! Don’t worry about missables (there are none) and you should be able to beat most of the game without a guide, so try your best and come back if you get stuck or need something specific
  • You don’t have to complete a level/survive to keep Collectibles. If you touch a Petal or give a Flower to the prince, it’s saved even if you leave the stage
  • Try clearing a path of enemies before taking the prince along when possible
  • For Pacifist challenges, jump over small enemies in the way and you’ll usually be able to avoid them. Sometimes you have to be patient to wait for opportune enemy placement.
  • For Speed challenges, making a clean run through a level without any KOs or major mistakes is usually enough. You’ll usually be good on these your second playthrough if you remember what to do.
  • Mushrooms cary your momentum from when you jump; press jump after moving in a direction to jump much farther in that direction. It’s much harder to change course mid-jump
  • Drop gingerly off ledges with mushrooms below; it’s pretty easy to take fall damage from some of the spots
  • In certain circumstances, you may need to select Retry from the menu to return to your last checkpoint if you’re permanently separated from the prince or otherwise mess up a puzzle. Don’t worry, it doesn’t restart the whole level, just the checkpoint
  • If you’re really, really stuck, you can skip stages after 10 minutes (but there’s a walkthrough below, so you shouldn’t get stuck that long…)

Walkthrough (Spoiler Free)

Here you’ll find video walkthroughs of every level in the game with all story cutscenes removed, so no spoilers! Click the links to skip right to the relevant level or use the embed to see the whole chapter. I’ve also noted which levels have achievements specific to them.

Each level has 5 Petals to collect and some have one Flower; see the Stage Select menu in the game to see which you’re missing from which stages. I recommend a full playthrough before going back to re-collect Petals, you can do it at any time so no rush, and it’s more fun if you try to figure out the puzzles at least once yourself.

It plays much like Makai Wars as a gachapon based mini-SRPG with auto-battle and various character-enhancing systems. In a very Compile Heart quirk, you equip CG images from the various games as “equipment”.

Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium: Valentine’s Day 2019 Event Guide

This is a guide for Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium, with only the Valentine’s Day Event (2019) information. See the main guide for other events and general game information. Feel free to add any of my guides to your homescreen for easy access, and offline loading of guides you’ve used (on supported devices)!

If my guides help remember you can support me on Patreon, YouTube, or chat about games in my Discord Server!

You can see my archived stream of the event here:

Valentine’s Day 2019 Event Stats

Start date: 2019-01-29
End Date: 2019-02-28 (estimated)

Costs: (data)

Total Cost: 625,500 roses!!!!
Fusion Materials: 3050 Seaweed, 640 clams, 275 Urchins
Time: over 30 days worth of max level crab casts or 626 ad watches, plus 82 hours of manual Urchin collection

Making this tie for one of the most expensive ever, and everyone starts from scratch

How It Works

Estimated Difficulty: Extremely high. Over 600,000 candy required.

Apparently we were told candy would carry over to the next event. I personally do not trust this at all given the multiple times they’ve gone back or attempted to go back on that.

  • Slow rollout starting 2019-01-29, slow rollouts mean it can take up to a week to get it
  • It’s a return to the old “crab” style events; it’s in the Saltwater tank, the Hermit Crab is back and can be cast 10 times per day for free
    • Theme, Dye, and Costume for coralite will be included like old times!
  • 17 new fish + 1 IAP. 1 “Quest” fish unlocked by completing a vague quest, just like Egypt/Pirate/2nd Anniversary events. If you missed those you can check out those guides for how they worked.
    • 2017 fish are back too.
    • 2018 fish/coral are NOT back, except Pygmy Whales
  • New attendance mission with 5 new rewards for daily check ins up to 20 days

Valentine’s Day Event Roadmap

First, note all your candies are gone (Halloween stole them) so you’re starting from 0. You need 200 candies to buy the Banquet Hall Dye to unlock the crab, which should be your first step. Watching 2 ads is enough, though you should keep tapping candy for the 50 candy Quest.

With 200 roses collected, close the main menu and tap the painter’s palette, then the Dye tab to get the Banquet Hall Dye and Crab. Tap the Event tab again to get the crab, it’s free real estate.

With the Dye  and Crab purchased, you should be casting it as often as possible, up to 10 times per day (you can recharge it halfway for 100 pearls, a total rip-off so don’t).

The crab is the fastest and easiest way to get candy, especially without a macro (which requires Nox Player and a PC or Mac). Keep the dye equipped, because otherwise you can’t use the crab. Don’t bother tapping roses unless you’re charging the crab, it’s seriously a drop in the ocean compared to ads and the crab. Only if you’re using a macro should you try otherwise.

To make tapping candy easier, store all fish but 5 or more Jellyfish or Clownfish. They stay in a small area and are easy to tap.

Level up the crab the instant you can each time, it’s hard to overstate how critical it is to completing this style of event.

Complete each step of the Quest as soon as you can, as a couple steps require you to perform tasks after unlocking the step.

With the help of the ads you should be able to get the Hermit Crab to level 6-8 within the first 24 hours, after which you can focus more on collecting the fish. Just be sure to finish upgrading the crab once you have the 30 fish required for the final levels.

  • A Pair of Pygmy Right Whales
    • 2 Wedding Town Whales

Valentine’s 2017 Fish

    • Own 1 of each Candy fish
      • Candy Nautilus
      • Candy Goldfish
