Title: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: Mats Berglinn on 07 Jul 2003, 19:07
It might sound weird and nuts but I have been thinking of this, which items haven't been used EVER in a adventure game... at least not yet. Here is my list of stuff nobody haven't been used in a adventure game that I know. Correct me if I'm wrong at a part.

A jojo
A skunk (note: the black cat you get in Day of the Tentacle doesn't count as a skunk)
A plastic goose with a rope on the top (Just kidding!)
A pen-eraser
A comic-book
A rubber-ducky
A voodoo-mask
Corndogs
Can of beer
A Grim reaper suit
A chicken suit
A DVD-movie
Some garlic
Some curry-powder

Well that's all I can think up of for now. You guys can tell me things that I missed.

A grim reaper suit was of course used in the classic LucasArts game, Grim Fandango.  One of my personal favorites.

And I dunno if the tofu mask from CMI counts, but that was sort of a voodoo mask.   :P

I've not seen my mum as an inventory item.

Then of course you could have a pointless thread asking people to list everything in the universe ever, (excluding only a relativly MINUTE numer of arbitrary objects) as an inventory item...

Would that be a paradox?

Post by: Mats Berglinn on 07 Jul 2003, 20:54
Well, the grim reaper suit in Grim Fandango doesn't count since it's NOT an iventory item and when I meant by the suit, a skull-mask be included. The tofu mask doesn't count because it was to fool the vegetarian cannibals so it's more of a cannibal mask than a voodoo mask.

Eggie, are you suffering under amenisia or do never play Monkey Island? No offense really, But keys have been used in a lot of adventure games and shovels have appeared a couple of MI games. A grabbeling hook was what Guybrush used at the end of LeChuck's revenge so it doesn't count. And I asked about things that have NOT been used as an iventory in ANY adventure game, not even AGS games. So think about three times before you reply, ok?

Has there ever been an adventure game walkthru as an inventory item?

Also, Sam and Max make cameo appearances in other Lucas Arts games, though not as themselves.  They were a statue near the monkey head in Monkey Island 2, I think.  Or was it the first one, I can't remember.

Nah, it has to be "your" hand. As in your hand in your inventory. Well, it made perfect sense to me last night...
There was a broken sword in Escape from Monkey Island.

- AGA himself (he could be an inventory item, right? right? maybe we'll have that on Mittens Kwest... coming the day Dave Gilbert gets to work on it!)
- A hammer made out of cheese (someone once suggested me to use that, or something similar to to that)
- You soul (hey, this one is pretty cool!)
- A copy of the adventure game you're currently playing (breaking the 4th wall :o)
- The mouse pointer (Breaking the 4th wall again. Use mouse pointer with whatever, and then your mouse gets stuck there. Your EGO breaks free and you lose the game).
- A party (in your pants, and everyone's invited! (bad pun))
- A picture of your character, naked. (no comment)
- Last, but not least, Adventure Game Studio (you can make games within your game!)
Cool topic! Best of all that what I've quoted is AGS! I've just remembered Sim-Sim from SQ4! It will be really cool to make game right in game. :)
And YOUR soul seems interesting. More interesting that Internet does! You will need to simulate soul of any player for that...

But it so great dreams. How about for example GIRL in inventory? :D Not just icon for directing like in BS3, but exactly GIRL. Or not girl, maybe somebody else who you can use like good inventory item in many different ways.

Oh. by the way - in LSL7 there are some kind of erotic photos of Larry as an invetiry item, so it isn't example!

It might sound weird and nuts but I have been thinking of this, which items haven't been used EVER in a adventure game... at least not yet. Here is my list of stuff nobody haven't been used in a adventure game that I know. Correct me if I'm wrong at a part.

A jojo
A skunk (note: the black cat you get in Day of the Tentacle doesn't count as a skunk)
A plastic goose with a rope on the top (Just kidding!)
A pen-eraser
A comic-book
A rubber-ducky
A voodoo-mask
Corndogs
Can of beer
A Grim reaper suit
A chicken suit
A DVD-movie
Some garlic
Some curry-powder

Well that's all I can think up of for now. You guys can tell me things that I missed.


You get a comic book in flight of the amazon queen.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that you get the hair of a three-toed sloth in Flight of the Amazon Queen, though I can't say with conviction that I remember whether it's only got three toes or not.

You could really list just about any absurd thing, but what about stuff that we see every day but just for whatever reason has yet to be used? Lessee, here... What about:

A pack of hot dogs (Absurd-ish, but still easy to come by)?
Origami paper (admittedly not all that common, but...)?
A computer mouse or keyboard (To my limited knowledge, you've never been able to actually carry one around seperate from a computer)?

That's all I've got.

A banjo (yes, I know there some banjos in MI3 but they don't count as inventory)

Okay, this bit is old since I was responding to the wrong message. So sue me.

* A broken record -- easy, Maniac Mansion
* Purple boxing gloves -- the Zelda Oracle series have boxing gloves, not sure if they're purple though
* A live fish -- King's Quest II
* A piece of carpet lint -- Larry 1 has pocket lint
* two toned wall paper -- Zak McKracken, near the beginning
* the Zak McKracken FM-Towns soundtrack on a cd -- well, in the NES version of Maniac Mansion each character carries a soundtrack in a CD player
* one monkey tail ( sans monkey) -- I think the MI2 copy protection has one.
* lima beans in jelly -- A Boy And His Blob.
* a care bear with a stake in its heart -- Boppin' (though not an adventure game, it uses a "deady bear" as a logo)

Beep, RIGHT! The record you find in the piano room is in fact broken, in the original version of Maniac Mansion (as well as the enhanced and NES versions). LucasFan saw fit to replace it by a Loom Soundtrack in his version, but that's not canon.

There's other kinds of adventure besides point-n-click. The older Sierra games qualify, as do all infocommies. I would certainly call Boy and his Blob an adventure, because there's little to do besides walking through rooms solving the puzzles. Same goes for the Dizzy series.

Oh, I didn't thought the record was broken. I had played the orignal MM but I didn't remember that the record in the piano room was broken. I didn't mind that it was replaced by the Loom music.

Okay but still the Zelda games doesn't count as adventure games, not as the kind of adventure games where it requires brains, inventory items, hard thinking (most of the time) than button mashing. Now let's carry on with the unused inventory items.

Not really because the wet spaghetti in the inventory didn't have meatballs but they appear when the spaghetti was put on Dead Cousin Ted's head, so it doesn't count as an inventory item but rather an object (maybe we should start a "Things that haven't been objects yet" thread  ;D).

Oh, I thought that bonsai was plants or trees that are faked. Anyway, about the fruit bowl it doesn't count because it's a fruit bowl and I was talking about the fruits alone. Okay, oranges have been comfirmed been used. If a bandana isn't a inventory item then it doesn't count.

I don't remember that Guybrush ever got hold on rum that's very old in MI2, I recalled that he did got non-acholholic grog and in MI4 he got very old grog.

IIRC when you get to a certain old pirate, you are given a mug of really old rum (or maybe it was grog) and have to switch it with alcohol-free grog. At any rate you do hold the mug of old liquor for a while.

Keen Dreams, never heard of it? Is that an adventure game? I only have played Lucas Arts games and AGS games.

No, it's a platformer (by id software, from the famous Commander Keen series) featuring fruit- and veggie-based enemies.

It wasn't very old rum but very STRONG grog which made Guybrush faint everytime he drank.

Here are a few inventory items I've never seen:
toy X-Wing
coala bear
car tire
troll
calculator
human spine
a dozen of worms (Maybe there were some in Sam&Max)
bird nest or bird house
pink elephant
moose head
a silver trophy shaped like a fish.

There's a bird nest in Zak McKraken and The Alien Mindbenders.

About the wine/vinegar: I'm not sure about this. The wine becomes vinegar after it's been stored about 400 years then the wine should not be counted as wine anymore... or does it.

blue cup mutated into a three-legged goblin
a jar of earwax
a glass-bowl with decorative patterns
ancient, egyptian toilet paper.
Well, using them as part of the inventory wouldn't make sense anyways, so I can see why they haven't been in any adventure game yet, if they haven't. :P

Steve: I can sometime "read between the lines", so I know that you're trying to tell us that this thread is pointless and therefore should be locked. Well, it's not pointless, it helps people coming up with original inventory items instead of clichéd used ropes, keys etc. Besides, it's kind of fun to see what kind of things people can imagine even if they sound totally unrealistic. Who knows, maybe someone will make up some really weird game with very weird inventories like Nosehair in a jar and such things.

I'd like to thank everyone who contributed to this (anything but pointless) thread for giving me several ideas for inventory items in my next game.

And so that my post features something more constructive than bum-kissing, here are a few ideas of my own:

an omni-virus that can infect both computers and animals
a device that can magically make things heavier
paint to change the colors of other items
a tape recorder that can store a player's typed message to play back later
(possibly to convince an NPC that you're in a room when you're not)
a heatray gun to heat up objects
a freezeray to do the opposite (also can make walkable paths on bodies of water)
a device that can magnetize other items
shrinkray to make things tiny/huge

hope this helps people create more creative puzzles.

Well, my game By the Sword will feature an antigravity generator, which I suppose could be used for that purpose...theoretically. But yeah, hasn't been used yet. ;)

Quote

This is an awesome idea! You've just inspired me! Thank you!

Seriously, that is very original...there is a lake in front of you. Do you find a boat to sail across it? Find a life preserver to swim in it? Nope, you freeze the water to walk on top of it. That's really lateral thinking. ;D
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: Oddysseus on 04 Jul 2007, 20:46
Glad to be of service.  Here's another idea:

magic spell that can bring inanimate objects to life

This could create some very interesting puzzles:
Table too heavy to move? Use the spell, and it gallops away!
Can't figure out where to go? Use the spell on a map, and it will give you directions
(with a snooty accent and general attitude of disdain, of course)
Locked door? Use the spell on it and then convince it to unlock itself.

Damn, I'm not usually into fantasy games, but this is starting to sound pretty good.
I might have to make this game myself one day.

Until that day, feel free to use this idea in your own game.  See how many puzzles you can come up with that stem from this one item.
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: TerranRich on 04 Jul 2007, 21:34
This could be a way for the player to use ordinary items (or unrelated items) in a totally new and different way.

Something like using the "detangling cream" with the "T-remover" in Leather Goddesses of Phobos and getting "de-angling cream" for the king. ;)

But I digress. Here's some I could think of:

a mouse cursor (just the cursor itself - maybe for a game where you are "inside" a computer)
silly putty that can talk to you - and be quite silly while doing so
a cup holder, ripped out of a car
a drink coaster
a key ring
a pair of cosmic-ray glasses (x-ray glasses that were made incorrectly)
a Styrofoam particle (those little white dots that come off when you break a piece of Styrofoam)
a used toothpick
the foam that covers one ear piece on headphones
air (it's air in your lungs, and you're holding your breath until you use the item on something - i.e. blow on it)
a "Draw Two" Uno card
a graphic tablet pen
a bottle cap

Correct me if any of those have already been inventory items. :)
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: Oddysseus on 05 Jul 2007, 01:05
I can't think of a specific example, but a bottlecap has to have been used before.  It just has to have been.

I think the "air in your lungs" item is especially clever, but it would probably make more sense as a gui option: "blow on."
I also like your idea of "silly" putty, because if there's one thing adventure games need more of, it's bad puns ;)

For my next contribution, I'm just going to steal from Legacy of Kain: Soulreaver.
-What if you could carry, say, a portal to another realm around with you?
The other realm is like the current room, but objects are moved around, certain doors are unlocked/locked, and of course, everything just looks really warped and creepy.

This idea could also work for "vision" items, like:
Nightvision goggles
X-ray specs
Your cosmic-ray glasses.

You could also have "spiritual vision" items, i.e. you could see whether people were good or bad.  Good people look like angels, bad people look like demons.  It would be especially cool if you got this item late in the game, and you suddenly realized that a character that has been helping you for no apparent reason is actually an evil guy leading you into a trap (It's a trap! It's a trap!... sorry, my inner Admiral Ackbar took control there for a second).
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: TerranRich on 05 Jul 2007, 02:18
What about an inventory item that makes the entire room reversed left-to-right (like a mirror)? The possibilities would be endless.

More I thought of:

one of those arrow-through-the-head hats
a single green pea
an unfolded bed sheet
a re-writable HD-DVD
an iPhone :P
a used cup (empty, but has dried-up soda or juice at the bottom)
an umbrella pole (missing the canopy part)
a "six-shooter" alcohol dispenser
a wet paper bag
a can koozie (never saw one of those as an inv. item before)

Some of those might be unknown to certain people, so let me know and I'll clarify :)
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: Oddysseus on 05 Jul 2007, 06:46
A can koozie could be used to... fix a leaky pipe?
Also, the wet paper bag intrigues me... not sure why.

Anyway, I had a bunch of ideas all at once, so I'll just dump them in this post.

You mentioned an antigravity generator in your game (very cool idea, by the way), and someone way back in this thread mentioned suction boots.  The logical thing would be to combine the two: antigrav boots.
My original idea for using them was to get an unreachable item on the ceiling.  Then I realized that you could use them to make some really unique spatial puzzles.  Imagine an M.C. Escher drawing turned into a playable maze: walk up the wall, then jump to a platform, walk around the other side of the platform (going from upside-down to right-side up in the process) jump to another platform, etc.  You wouldn't have to script it like a platformer- the jumping would just be a canned animation triggered when you click on the right hotspot.  The tricky part would be drawing it so that the player could easily judge the distance between platforms, what was higher/lower, etc.

My next idea would be an inventory item that actually inconvenienced the player, rather than helping him.  I'm thinking specifically about a parasitic creature that latches onto the player.  He would appear stuck to the border of the inventory box, rather than in an item slot, and when the mouse cursor hovered over him, he would grab it, and not let go until you shook the mouse back and forth a bit.  Preferably, you would change the default pointer cursor to, say, a hand pointing.  That way, it would be immersive "It's got my arm!" rather than breaking the forth wall "I can't click on shit!"  I have no idea how you would script something like this, but I believe it's possible and I KNOW it's kickass ;)

And lastly, just a throwaway idea that came to me out of the blue:
The game developer's mind could be an inventory item.  That way, you'd always be able to solve those nonsensical, "what was the designer thinking?" puzzles.
Alright, basically it's a cutesy version of a hint system, but I still think it would be funny if using it would get responses like "Duh, obviously all you have to do is use the jellyfish on the horse testical and the magnetron.  This is just common sense, people.  It's simple!"
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: TerranRich on 05 Jul 2007, 18:29
I've always loved the idea of a "thought" inventory: i.e. items would be thoughts, ideas, or desires.

Also, Oddy, a lot of your ideas are awesome. Antigrav generator used on boots to make antigrav boots...so simple I woudl've never thought of it. It gives me an idea for my game actually.

More items:

the LCD screen from a calculator
the cap to a pen
a digital camera memory card
a silicone implant :P
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: Oddysseus on 06 Jul 2007, 05:00
Not sure how the thought inventory would work, but it is a cool idea.  Like, you could give Love to a princess or Loyalty to a king or Eternal Disdain to your sarcastic sidekick.

What would a pen cap actually be useful for?  Hmm... I guess you could store very small amounts of a liquid in it.  Like... a mermaid's tear as an ingredient for a potion.  Though why pens and mermaids would exist in the same world is beyond me.

The silicone implant is a great idea.  You could use the shrinkray I mentioned earlier in reverse to make it into a beanbag chair.  ;D


As for my addition to the list, I think it's already been said, but:
-intestines.

It's actually part of this idea for a game I had: You're a zombie, and the only inventory items you use in the game are parts of your own body.  Like, your intestines would function as a rope to cross pits, or a whip to defeat enemies.  You could pull off one arm and hold it in the other to grab things that are just out of reach (and too slippery to lasso with your intestines).   You could detach your eyeball and stick it in holes to see things you couldn't otherwise see.   And you would use your teeth to bite people, obviously.  Also, eating brains would give you "super strength" that you could use to smash through locked doors, etc.

And you could talk to any object in the game, but everytime you press the talk cursor, you would just shout variations of "GRAAA!" or "Splargh!" or something totally random.
Title: Re: Things that haven't been inventory items... yet
Post by: TerranRich on 06 Jul 2007, 15:46
LMAO, I love that idea! You should go for it! I'd love to play that game.

Oh, and to stay on topic, more ideas...though a lot of them may have been used before:

a packet of sugar
a highlighter
the metal spiral part of a notebook
an embroidered patch, ripped from a hat/shirt/etc.

And remember: all inventory items have a use, no matter how weird, out of place, or unusual.

Here's an idea:

A meditation handbook.  Use it on yourself, and you can astral project your soul out of your body.  Your soul could travel over areas that your player character could not, and even go through certain walls.

Not sure how to script this, except maybe making a character that always followed the main character from room to room, whose walking image was a blank cell until replaced at the appropriate time with a ghost image.

How about a cooler instead of a fridge?  More practical.

And since you brought up classic adventure characters, how about a book called Larry Laffer's Failproof Pick-up Lines.  Use it on all female NPCs for humorous (and disastrous) consequences.

And now, the part where I pretend to be original:
Inventory items that affect all other inventory items.  The simplest idea I had was: pick up the "sand" item, and the phrase "This is like, covered in sand" will be added before the descriptions of all other inventory items.
Here's an idea that's harder to implement: you're a spacedude on a bio-ship.  All the ship components you pick up have living tissue.  One of the items you can pick up is infected with a virus, and once it is added to your inventory, it starts to infect all your other items, one by one.  Infected items wouldn't necessarily be useless (because everyone hates walking deads, right), but their function would change, so you'd have to solve a few puzzles differently.

Post by: TerranRich on 22 Jul 2007, 01:33
Ooh, I like that last idea, Oddysseus! An alternate version could see a molecular destabilizer that you know you need later on in the game, but in the meantime, all of your items appear slightly melted...which makes one of your now-red-herring items useful in some manner, now that it is "melted".

A potion that floods all the world after being spilled on the ground, floods all the world (with all consequences like lesser gravity, high demand on oxygen and such...) ... with the sound of flushing toilet.

A Hero container (a spoof on a pokeball) which can contain clones of the best adventure game characters. Like when a crowd of female fans are blocking you way, you can throw one at them , saying "Leisure Suit Larry, I choose you!" and "Flirt attack!".
Or when you need to get on any restricted space ship (including ones from other dimensions) you can just use Roger Wilco's space janitor ID.

A pre-Great Flood sponge, which was used to clean all the water. (Just imagine, what will happen if you squeeze it)

A broken A perpetual motion machine (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perpetual_motion) which is used as a can opener.

"A potion that floods all the world after being spilled" - now that's a powerful item.

Also, the pokemon idea is quite cool.  Shame about the massive copyright infringement it would require to utilize it properly.

My contribution(s):
A gun that makes things black and white for some reason.  I dunno, maybe if you made a Rainbow Brite game where you played as Murky and Lurky or something.
Another gun that changes the room perspective from normal to a flat 2D platformer-style perspective (like the upcoming Paper Mario game).  It would be most useful to use this idea with the AGS platformer module.
And finally: some object that allows you to see the preliminary art for the game - use it on objects, they become lineart, backgrounds become rough sketches, characters revert to earlier designs.  Not really useful, but it might be a cool 'behind the scenes' kinda bonus for those who beat the game or find 'teh ooltiMate seekret Item!!'

Thought bubble.  Use this on a puzzle you're having difficulty with, and a "Daydream" minigame opens up, with the problem and its solution represented in some abstract, surreal way.  Win the minigame, and you'll figure out how to solve the puzzle.

Not entirely true. The shrinking ray is something Old Purple Tentacle used, it was never an inventory item, so it doesn't count.
About Zak: It's not an amulet but a crystal and besides, it just switches bodies with animals, Zak never turns into them.
Monkey Island: That depends on what TYPE of lips you refer to. MI had WAX lips but not the real thing.

Actually, I never remember the Grim Reaper suit being part of your inventory. Oh, you wear it once while playing the game, but it was no more part of your inventory then Guybrush's shoes. I don't have it now, because, I lent it to my sisters, so I can't check, but I have a good feeling I am right.

Well somebody probably put him in a game but, with the odds of seeing him, you probably just missed him.  ;D

Actually, this is an inventory item in a game I played a while ago. Can't for the life of me remember what it was called though.

My contribution: A pair of silk jodphurs.

Russell Brand's disease ridden penis
Lara Croft's bra strap
A spaceship (at least I don't think so)
Leisure Suit  Larry's gimp costume (unless it's been worked into one of those crap new ones)
A steel sky
A meerkat
CJ


Inventory items NEVER USED(I think)

-the Energizer Bunny
-a monkey
-an iPhone
-and a portable door


The energizer bunny was used in Full Throttle to get over the mines.
A monkey was used as a lever for a pump (if I recall) in monkey island
An iphone was used in the iphone adventure game 1112 to take an upskirt photo of some rough looking woman
Technically a portable door hasn't been used, but the concept has, as an inventory item.

King's Quest V or VI had a portable hole in it, though it was for looking through instead of being an exit.

I believe that a comic book was used in Willy Beamish. Also, DVD's probably haven't appeared as items because adventure games started to lose popularity around the time that DVD's came on the market (for average consumers).
