I'm almost certain Alo meant the player character shooting himself to death. :P

While that may be true, you of all people can't object to my deliberately taking advantage of an ambiguity, can you? :P

It was a deliberate ambiguity. Take advantage all you want.

It's also one of my all-time favorite minor bugs. Hold down space and you attack constantly in Mantra. With a sword, that means you just hold it out. With a bow, that means you fire a solid stream of arrows. Sometimes the stream mysteriously hits the edge of the screen and kind of wraps around so the arrows reappear in a corner and head straight for you, causing you to die rapidly.

Enough bugs like that, and there are plenty in Mantra 2, and you may want to shoot someone yourself. You'll certainly want to shoot someone or something.

—Alorael, who probably shouldn't generalize like that. His shooting urges are well known already and apparently not common in the wider population.

Thuryl, what do you mean? Didn't JV play a major part in the making of Realmz?
Er, no. No, he didn't. The only contact between Fantasoft and Spiderweb is that Fantasoft originally distributed Exile I (and II?) before Jeff got his own site.

Ah I see. I misunderstood then.

EDIT: Oh yeah. I seem to recall that particular bug in Mantra II. This is why we do beta testing, I suppose.

Didn't Jeff have some connection to Ultima, too?

Wow. Thought I was the only one who played Mantra. What a pretty much useless game. :)

If by "have some connection to" you mean "really like and be inspired by the gameplay style of".

There's a paragraph-long list of games he was inspired by in the Exile I readme.

I vaguely remember hearing (well, reading) that he was involved with one of the MechWarriors. I could easily be wrong or confusing him with someone else, though.

Aww, come now. It wasn't a bad game. I thought it was fun (if short and easy). Kind of reminiscent of the old Zelda games.
