Here's a bit of an ad-hoc bonus blog post inspired by an anon comment on the MQ:P playthrough post I made on Monday.
They suggested checking out the pictures folder in the game files as there's some interesting additional content for Gnosis's Bad End scene that was omitted from the main game.
Here's the sequence for the curious.
Gnosis is one of the MGQ-verse's many fucked up angels. The Bad End scene starts innocuously enough with a blowjob.
It's a Xelvy, so things immediately go all John Carpenter's The Thing.
Xelvy and Delphinus might both get flak for being just as effective at destroying boners as erecting them, but the horror fan in me delights in not knowing what the hell they're going to hit you with next. Xelvy in particular. Some of his scenes are just crazy.
I mean, just as you've got used to the unusual mouth parts, off worms the spiky tongue to places we'd rather not have spiky tongues.
(ow ow ow)
This is pretty much where the scene ends in the game. Gnosis keeps on sucking up Luka's semen and life, and eventually it's fade to black and off to visit Death in Hades for reanimation.
If you check out the pictures directory in your game files (be careful, thar be spoilers), you'll see the art actually takes it further.
I think that might be Luka's testicle Gnosis is sucking up through Luka's cock.
And then I'm not sure. Is that Luka's inside-out love-sac she's pulled up there, or maybe some representation of his soul/energy. Whatever it is, Gnosis sucks on it like yummy candy.
It's interesting this didn't make the final cut. I wonder if TTR looked at pics of Luka's inside-out bollock being dragged up the inside of his cock and went, "Thanks for that, Xelvy, but I think we'll give those last pics a miss."
This is in keeping with the overall tone of the Monster Girl Quest series. There are many horrible horrible ends implied for Luka, but the truly icky stuff is kept off screen. You'll never see his skin and flesh slough off after he's been dunked in digestive acids, for example. And he never gets visibly mutilated. Which makes sense - these are sex games after all.
(Hmm, I would appear to lack this common sense.)
It did get my little black cells thinking. I'd like to write a fantasy-esque romp in an MGQ-esque world at some point. A interesting angle might be to throw in a group of unsuspecting nerdy types from our world into a MGQ-esque world. Maybe even have them aware of what monster girls are. Of course we'd have some nice sexy fun times to start with. Then it might be interesting to show what really happens Beyond the End for some of those Bad Ends.
In full graphic detail.
For the lulz. ;)
It reminded me of a book I read in my teens that was a brutal deconstruction of the whole Earth kids transported to a Dungeons & Dragons magical fantasy world plot. The kids had the powers of their RPG characters, but then the thief got gutted trying to pick the pocket of a noble and the female cleric (or sorceress) spent most of the first book in a catatonic state after being brutally raped by some random mooks. Things got better, but they bloody well had to fight for it. I think it might have been Joel Rosenberg's Guardians of the Flame series, but it was a very long time ago when I read it.
I'm thinking that might be a fun deconstruction of the MGQ world. After all, you never really get to see the icky bad stuff the monster girls do to Luka (and each other!). Definite potential to explore that angle, I think, although I'd need to be careful to avoid making it too cynical or grimdark.
I think I could have "fun" with this.
I'm a bad bad person. ;)
