Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Just saw an old episode of Always Sunny in Philadelphia, and they became obsessed with a game called Techpocalypse. I figured it would be some idiotic Farmville-type addiction, but checked it out. Amazingly, it seems sort of fun thus far, although I've only played a few turns.

The reason I bring it up here is because, in exploring these "ruins," I suddenly got a CYOA style choice: Which car do you want? The speedy race car, the utility van, the lumbering semi, or the mini hybrid? I chose utility van because this is the apocalypse, and now have been engaged in an 8 screen CYOA, where each choice evidently does make a difference, and one has to balance gas, with speed, with maneuverability to escape this massive behemoth vehicle with a terminator-style driver.

Could suck, who knows, but interesting enough to mention here.

I'm tribe Donkey Brains in Phoenix. Come join up, maybe I'll actually play for longer than a few minutes.

It has graphics! Now I found a plant and had all these choices on what to do and ended up with +7 Plant lore.

Then I died when the monster had 1 hp and I dropped my stuff. That'll teach me to check in stuff at the Depot. I'm out of moves for the day.

At first it seemed confusing, but the little question mark in the upper right takes you to a quick start guide. I think I understand the basic principles. It entails everyone in the tribe to work together. I suspect that when I log on tomorrow, my base will be destroyed because I couldn't find enough boards to build a wall or a tower or any protection. Come see if you can join my tribe and then we'll be all powerful!

How do I select a area? It might just be my computor.

Techpocalypse

Just click on the little symbol in the area.

Techpocalypse

There are no symbols just a tv with the states on it.

Techpocalypse

There should an icon in Arizona that you can click on, if not then just click all over Arizona! =P

Techpocalypse

playing now.. will report my findings 

Techpocalypse

It's the dark room all over again. xD

Also I can start in Arizona. I somehow find this amusing. lol

Fight the power, maaaan! Fight the machiiiine, maaaan!... Probably not the best term to use when convincing someone not to join a group that kills robots...

Techpocalypse

dude this is addicting... joi our tribe!

Techpocalypse

Can't, I don't do social networks, (this being the sort-of exception) but I'm so fucking tempted right now...

Techpocalypse

You could just make a fake person. lol I've done that before.

Techpocalypse

I'm just going to block everything from Facebook updating. It's not like a Facebook game. It's really bizarre.

Techpocalypse

It says it is full though.

Looks like only 6 people can be in a tribe at a time I think.

Techpocalypse

Fireplay joining your tribe.

Techpocalypse

I noticed, somewhat confused on how to get more action points.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

you get a set amount a day. thats it

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

It's one of those wait to play games.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Ah, that's why I disliked it before I even started. lol

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Thought that would have been obvious from the original post.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I was not sure so I decided to check it out. :p

Techpocalypse

Perfect for Madglee though, I suppose, since he has so little time in the first place.

Techpocalypse

^ Yep. 

Techpocalypse

Finally got the freaking symbol.

Techpocalypse

Wait... is the only way to sign-up through Facebook...? Terrible registration, if so. Facebook sucks balls.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I joined.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

yeah not hard to make a fake profile on facebook, takes about 30 seconds. Plus if you think ANYTHING you do online is private... then I feel sorry for you..

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Heh, this site is private enough. Everything is anonymous (unless you explicitly state it) and about 20 people tops follow the forums haha.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

every key stroke you make is logged in a datacenter in the US. every single one. 

Fact.

Its sucks, but the people voted for it in 4 elections :(

Techpocalypse

Canada. 

We're just as bad, but our goverment is way sneakier about it!

Techpocalypse

Madglee knows where you live

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Oh yeah, Father told me that one a while ago. Kinda weird that the government sees my every e-mail, text, and can trace me via IP address. Can't believe people voted for that, and although it's disgusting by principle. I don't do anything 'bad', so I just try to forget it :(

Everything you do can be considered "bad" by the goverment. Welcome to murica...

It's not so much the privacy I'm worried about as it is the stupidity of it. If I want to socialize with all my friends, I have a party, if I want to speak with someone in private, I go and talk to them. I don't prance around waiting for the whole world to drool over whatever bullshit I have to say, the idiocracy and blatant stupidity of many of the users when you know they're more intelligent than they're sounding, and then everyone trolling and flaming each other over it is what bothers me. Also, perverts and all that rot.

Techpocalypse

Dammit, Donkey Brains is full.

I'm going my own route.  Sorry...

C.Y.S.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

HOLY CRAP THAT GAME IS REAL!!!?? I wanted to play it so badly but I thought it was fake because it seemed so odd

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Holy shit you guys! I log in, expecting the base to be destroyed and find that you all joined my tribe and fortified the walls! We're powerful and I have more action points!

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

nope we burnt the midnight oil!

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I'm in Georgia and am Part of the Herdsmen East. Will we ever actually run into each other? It's a long while away.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

You dirty traitor. Yes, we can run into each other and kill.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I don't think we can run into each other, but let's use the in-game thread to plot tactics. Click on FORUMS > TRIBE and we can post there. I posted a Welcome thread and used another post to write a brief RPG-type message. We can remind each other to finish building, to gather resources, to explore, whatever in a RPG style where we are actually writing.

That way we'll have a significant advantage and others who aren't interested in the game, but want to write within the setting of a game, will want to play.

I think it's actually a pretty fun 15 minutes a day, and longer if you write a post. Anyone who joined from here who DOESN'T want to play anymore, please delete so you leave the tribe, as I have no ability to kick people out or anything.

Who here is on again? Aeon and who else? The tribe is full and I assumed it was mainly you guys. 

Techpocalypse

I'm in as well

Weeeeeeeeeeeell my tribe is dead. But on the bright side is our tribe had five times more glory than the the next highest, soooooooo....

New Tribe in Pheonix called "CYS"

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

We're doing pretty well and still the highest glory, but I think a lot of people have stopped playing. It might be me and one other. We need to finish the tech building and upgrade the HQ and guns fast.

Techpocalypse

How do I sign up? When I go to the site it just has some twitter and facebook updates from them.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Unfortunately, there's no way to kick people from the tribe. All the slots are full even though several people aren't playing. The thing to do will be to create a tribe with "Friends only" and make up a password or whatever.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I created a new tribe called CYS and made it so only friends can join. If you tell me your usernames in Techpocalypse, I will invite you.

Techpocalypse

Same as here bud I believe.

I tried to add Aeon, Aeon Spiral, AeonSpiral, but none worked. Uncertain why. Obviously still in Beta. Maybe I'll just give up. It's impossible to win by yourself I suspect.

Techpocalypse

Yeah its AEON. IDK. Weird. I wanna ply madglee! Don't quit :(

Techpocalypse

And mine is Delta :P pretty damn obvious.

Techpocalypse

Just signed up as Forge, char name Mirror, dont think I was very smart though lol

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I signed up, it looks fun!

Cant seem to join madglee though... Oh well, I'll give it a couple shots by myself first.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

OK, going to try to add you guys. Not sure if it won't work if you're already in game or what.

 

Didn't work. OK, I know what the problem is. We all have to be "friends" before we can join tribes that are private. Let's all start a game together, name the tribe something we all know - CYS is taken and I'm stuck in there.

I created a new Tribe called Wasteland Rangers in Phoenix. I added Aeon as a friend. I don't see the rest of you. Join quickly. Once someone joins, I cannot kick them out.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Ok made a new account and joined

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I can't do it ATM but I will.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Good work Forge. And who's hmm? Anyway, if you check in at the main home base hut, you can see a tab that says "Tribe." In there you can post forum messages only the tribe can see.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I'll see if my sister is off the computer. If so then I'll be able to join.

... Fuck, she's not...

Techpocalypse

Eh, i honestly liked die2nite better.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

What's die2nite? I just found another game called cardhunter.com which is really complex and was partially designed by the Magic guy, Garfield something.

 

[EDIT] die2nite looks cool. Reminds me of Fallout. Trying to determine if it's pay to win.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I beta tested card hunter.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I've decided Techpocalypse makes me want to tear my eyes out. Until one can kick people from a tribe, the game's unplayable, because you need teamwork to survive, and people will join and then go idle.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

We only seem to have Pea idle atm though and still free spots in the tribe still.

Ps, did a little repair work and dropped more construction resources into the depo since its needed for fire. was wondering though I found some of armour, do you want me to leave it int he depo between turns  or just keep it?

Also some things gain points and other tasks don't, any pattern to this?

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

OKAY I am back. I am in Ohio and my internet was set up while I was gone. I have the power again!

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

OK good work. Dude, don't check in at the garden, man one of the useless turrets because we don't have a fire pit. We need to defend until we can find enough bricks and planks and hefty rocks to upgrade the main base and rebuild the walls.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I want to kill his entire family, that Pea. You can keep armor if you need it, otherwise give to tribe. It's fine to save a couple things so you can carry out your plans, in my opinion.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Started a new one. Phoenix. Wasteland Rangers.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

wait... is that the current one?

 

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

it says our base was destroyed.

Techpocalypse

dear god the game is just freeze after freeze after crash right now

Techpocalypse

What's your techpocalypse name? I'm trying to join but I can't get off the screen that says my tribe was destroyed.

Techpocalypse

you have to hit new game. Waste land rangers. In pheonix

Techpocalypse

I don't have the option

Techpocalypse

mine was hidden by the banner at the bottom

Techpocalypse

How do I remove the banner? And now it's not even letting me into the site -_-. Yaaaaaaaaay

Techpocalypse

ya The site is crashed for me too...

Techpocalypse

It's back for me! :3

Techpocalypse

Cool I will jump on soon

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Have you figured out how to start a new game? I still can't find anything

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I built a chopping block so I could build the robotic hull fragments needed to complete our quest. We still have plenty robotic remains left if you guys want to build the fragments to build as armor

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Also placed the evil identichip thingy in the depot along with three or four pieces of armor for you guys who would rather not be knocked out (and have to waste AP on health). If anyone uses the identichip please place it back in the depot for the next person to use it, they don't come along that often.

EDIT: Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay I was wrong, they're not uncommon because I just found three more before I ran out of AP. It would still be polite to put them back until we hit six chips though.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Well logged in and everything was destroyed. Anyone up for trying again?

nvm its full already

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

yeah we have a sweet tribe right now Wasteland Rangers or something another. In Pheonix. Join up!

Okay I found some helmets fully upgraded 2-3 walls, upgraded the saw. Fully explored the burning cabin, and semi wreck. Found myself a welding mask (armor +16) and deposited a TON of supplies to the depot. Im checked in as I am out of action points. :)

Someone needs to upgrade our only remaining spike wall. 

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I started upgrading the spear tower, deposited a FUCKTON of supplies, 8 of which being wood planks, very useful, and I found a priceless safe. I need a military security card to open it, but good find, right?

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

absolutely! i found a magical treasure chest that i got 2 pieces of bolted lumber out of. I started exploring that cave on the right. 

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

If you follow the path to the northeast that Madglee made you'll find a slaughtered Army platoon, which you can loot to potentially find security cards. In my tribe in Georgia I found one after killing a crazed ex-soldier, which may be around the platoon, I haven't checked

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I've been busy mining stone to get past the first upgrade, I think I upgraded every wall but two because I ran out of action points. Once the final one is upgraded I'm heading back to the cyber forest and grabbing what I can find. It looks hella advanced and wood is one of the many options, possibility of bolted lumber maybe?

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Just checked the depot (and grabbed myself one of Aeon's nifty fire helmets) and we have more than enough stone to upgrade the fence, if anyone has the AP yet. If not I'll do it in a few hours when mine regenerates for the day.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

your welcome for that hats. I suggest everyone grab one. I am out of AP also satiated for the day so no go there either. when I do regen I am gonna finish off the remaining piles of crap around the base.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Hey guys, we can use the forum in-game, too, for ease of sending each other messages. (I don't get to get on here as much as I like). You have to check into the main base and then there's a forum tab with forums just for our tribe.

 

I made the mistake last game of upgrading the home base. Once you do that, it takes away the walls, so we want to make sure we have enough lumber, stone, bricks, and steel planks to at least put a wall around the depot. I think that should be 18 of each we'd need in storage. We really need a garden, too, so even if one gun-tower falls that might be good, as we have no hexes yet.

What's up with the "mystery cave?" Maybe we need rope or something; I can't interact with it.

 

[edit: was a bug on the mystery cave. I explored straight northeast from our east wall and hit the other tribe "moors." Not sure if we can attack or what. You guys understand about checking in to a turret or base at night, right? And craft yourself things in the craft menu so you can upgrade your armor and weapons and stuff until we find random drops. At least, that is my strategy; just wanted to make sure you knew you could do that.]

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I got some cybridium alloy and 2 recipes for y'all~!

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

You need a torch to explore the cave and there's a forum button at the top for me where can cycle between the tribe, region, world, etc. forums.

Techpocalypse

I found a city to the left....

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Hmm, a city that you can explore? What does it offer? I'm probly gonna check out that tribe since I have the crystal shards I found in the cave that give me +13 damage

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Sorry not a city. Its a cramped apartment building. AND IT IS LOADED with looot

Techpocalypse

Ok so I am poisoned and have like 3 broken bones.... FML

Techpocalypse

I had a dislocated shoulder and it seemed to fix itself, so hopefully you only have to deal with it for one turn.

How'd you manage to get poisoned, though?

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

some sort of cyber spider.

also if you come across a home/apartment/hamlet and find a scared kid dont try to talk to it. damn thing bit me for 50 dmg.

Techpocalypse

At an old tribe I figured cybers were following/watching it so I just kept on searching in the outskirts and left him to die. Turns out I was the good guy all along ^-^

our tribe was destroyed guys :(

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Well, at least we got farther than I ever have before (probably because half the time I would end up working alone). Aeon, do you pay the game for the better character types? Is that why you can repair the HQ? Because I can't, and I read a global thread where someone else mentioned that you can't.

Techpocalypse

Pay? Like real currency? Heck no. I just logon and play the game lol

Dam you Americans for naming your famous city the same thing as a state then putting them on different sides of the country, I spent 2 mins trying to click on where washington DC was before remembering there was a state called washington too.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Expanded our turf, built up a few walls, built a chopping block and spear barrier, and found a quarry, glittering mansion, and apartment building to the south. We have enough wood to build the last wall but I just didn't have the AP to build it.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

GREAT! I ran out of AP but got most the walls built and tried to expand our territory around the HQ

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Finished the walls off and added the apartment to our area so its safe to scavenge now. Dumped a pile of building supplies to the depo so we just need to spam the quarrey to build a fire pit at least.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

Awesome. I take it you are mirror?

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

He would have to be. We also need the quarry to build stone walls. I'll get on that. The firepit will help us manufacture brick as well (although I don't remember at what level it starts doing that)

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

That's odd, because I'm not able to repair the HQ. I can repair any other building but that.

Techpocalypse

7 years ago

I think only the founder can repair HQ. I couldnt repair that either last time around.

Techpocalypse

So I built a garden and a tech building.

Techpocalypse

Your clear methinks

Got a bunch of resources then used them on 2 of the walls and upgrading to the furnace to help with construction etc. checked into spear place.

Techpocalypse

We need one rope to upgrade the building in the right top hex of the base
