Hello this is Megaman Legends Fangame Scene, a column about delicious community-related projects regarding our favorite game series, Megaman Legends!
Megaman Legends is a game that unites us in this club (duh), and with the recent disappointment by capcom and tragic death of megaman, many wonder what will happen with the future of this series.
Well, as you may or may not know, many franchises shine more than others when it comes to the fanbase, and i've always been glad to see that the Megaman Legends Fanbase is not an ugly sort of fanbase. Whereas some franchises have unfortunate fanbases that make people cringe, and give their titles a bad name, the Megaman Legends fanbase has always been composed of handsome, talented individuals with good taste for videogames, and we as a community are not short of people willing to extend the lore of our beloved Megaman Legends series be it by artwork, writing, or sometimes, GAMES
It is said that Capcom completely abandoned Megaman, but the fans haven't, and proof of that is "Tuttle's Legendary Travels"
, a fangame in production (IN BOMBASTIC 3D, JUST LIKE THE ORIGINAL MML BUT BETTER) made by the talents known as Fab and Blyka, based on the megaman legends character Tuttle, who many of us know thanks to The Misadventures of Tronn Bonne.Who is this Tuttle anyway?
A great explanation can be found along with pictures at The Legends Station
"Among the weird people found in the Shala-kun caves, he is probably the weirdest of all.So, what's the game about?
Tuttle can be found at various points throughout the ruins, usually standing around pondering a problem. His strange, almost eerie laugh echoes throughout the caves, and occasionally you can find him swinging his cane--at what is anyone's guess. Incidentally, he can't swim."
I'll just copy-paste the introduction found at the game's website because it's just that great:
"Tuttle's Legendary Travels is an epic adventure spanning five original islands set in the world of Mega Man Legends. When Tuttle overhears the plans of air pirates about to depart on a mission that promises great adventure and treasure, he takes off in pursuit to seek the adventure and treasure for himself.
Tuttle will explore grand ruins and an expansive overworld, battle with monstrous reaverbots and villainous air pirates, collect a variety of items and precious artifacts, and interact with an unforgettable cast as he unravels the many mysteries of the Quint Islands!"
But wait! Hold on your trousers before they are inevitably blown away! There's more!
Remember the Megaman Legends 3 project? Remember how the developers had a devroom open for everyone to see the progress of the project, and how they were so nice to allow people to drop ideas, and held events that were to be featured in-game? Remember how Megaman Legends 3 was aiming to be a game made by collaborations between Megaman Legends fans?
This project is almost identical.
The guys have a development blog where they keep track of everything they've been making, they have gorgeous, finished 3D models available for looking and playing with on their 3D model viewer, they have a gallery of artwork, and preview screens and even project videos! Andbest thing of all? They hold free-for-all community events that you can participate on with little to no effort and the winners get their ideas brought to life in-game!
If there is a fan-project related to Megaman Legends that you should have faith in, THIS ONE IS!
They already hosted their first event and the second one is in progress, and you can participate without even having to make an account or register, it's awesome!
Just to sell you more on this, you know what the current event is about? proposing funny faces for balloons
. That's right, remember the "Balloon Fantasy" minigame in Megaman Legends 1? Tuttle's Legendary Travels is going to bring it back for all of us to enjoy, and it's your chance to put a funny face on the balloons Tuttle will strike down! (More details about this event here
