Thanks for Grundislav for playing it and allowing me to release it! You are a splendid chap.

This is a fangame parody of the awesome BJ series and is based on the first one.

Great game!  The puzzles were basically the same as in BJ, but the humour is what makes it a completely new game!

 ;) Thumbs up!

Man, I wish I had the strength to make such a parody. All I did was photoshop Grundi's artwork.  :P

Ok, I have downloaded it.

Not to be off topic, I hope that Grundislav is doing some thing with latest BJ!

Many have been for it.

This was really fun (and short!) I LOVE the Ben Jordan games and you did a really good parody. Thanks for making this!!!

Keep 'em comin'!

Wow, I think this is the first time ever for an indipendent free game to have not one, but two parodies! This is a more "serious" one, the other was a pure joke, the last April Fools if I remember correctly (Ben Jordan: Paranormal Warrior Within)!

You demonstrated again how resourceful and talentuous (is it even an english word?) you are, Buloght. Congrats.

I downloaded the file, but I cant open it :(

Gets the error message:
"Cannot open file: it does not appear to be a valig archive.
If you downloaded this file, try downloading the file again."

I have tried downloading MANY times etc...

The screenshot looks awesome,
but i cannot download it.
I get this "Server not found" thing :(

Thanks for replies, haha yeah BJ deserves a couple of fangames  ;) Thanks for playing.

It's not downloading because the server is down because the entire town's power is down (i'm in a neigbouring town). It should be back in a couple of hours. Darn the power people, they've been giving us trouble for more than a month switching it on and off whenever they like, it's cause they're installing something. Sorry  :)

What about my problem? :(.
I managed to download it but I never got the file to work.

Peder, it's working fine for me...

BTW, finished it! A very crafty game. Good use of simplistic graphics.

Well done Buloght. And I voted ;)

Thanks nikolas :)

Peder: I think it's because you were still downloading when the power went down, I'm getting a mirror from Afflict, if he checks his PM haha :) Sorry for inconvenience. I'm checking out your game :)

man, I downloaded earlier today, also downloaded it from here:

oh, sorry. It's probable that the version there was also downloaded while the power went down, it's happened to me and then the game is corrupted. Really sorry for inconvenience. Those power people i tell you.

I didn't play the original title yet, but I loved your work, buloght, very impressive. Your graphic style is very effective (not over-complicated but still quite detailled and just overall beautiful). The puzzles were a tad bit cliche, but still fun. Keep it up! :D

Post by: Mordalles on 07 Mar 2006, 20:54
hehe, great game, buloght.

dkh, the puzzles were the same as the original.
Title: Re: Sven Gordan Paranormal Parody (fangame)
Post by: scourge on 07 Mar 2006, 20:58
Thanks dkh!   :-[ :) and Mordalles :)

Well, i loved he original's puzzles.
What i did was make a parody, thus changing names, alter story, new dialoque, new graphics and interface, thereby creating (hopefully) a different playthrough of the same game in a what-if scenario. Or something like that, honouring the BJ series :)

Post by: DoorKnobHandle on 07 Mar 2006, 21:02
What I meant with cliche wasn't necessarly negative all the way. Just that "make-somebody-look-away-and-grab-something"-puzlle is a little overused in my opinion. This is of course not your fault, buloght, as you took the puzzles from the original. Those puzzles have another advantage: I could solve them!  :)
Title: Re: Sven Gordan Paranormal Parody (fangame)
Post by: scourge on 07 Mar 2006, 23:56
My guess is the server will be back online tomorrow morning (in about 6 hours) again (after the dude in charge restarts it) due to the power failure. I'll EDIT this post if it's back on :).

dkh: I understand :) I think Grundislav presented the puzzles much better than me though since after all it's his and he understands exactly what he wants with them. So play the original  :)

[EDIT]: Server's still not back on, i'll check in again in a few hours. BTW, it's a uni server and the entire uni has lost power. But it's usually only for a few hours (happened a couple of times in the last two months due to the power people installing a new generator or something)

I've downloaded yesterday and I did managed to complete it.

Are planning a sequel?

Title: Re: Sven Gordan Paranormal Parody (fangame) - MIRROR added
Post by: Guest on 08 Mar 2006, 11:04
Have downloaded both versions today (the download link and the mirror)
The game seems to be excellent, but the only thing I can do is walking around.
The cursor won´t change to "look, talk"..etc.

With a click on the right mouse button I only get the inventory.

Sure I´m doing something wrong ???
