I might have gone too far. The game has become self-aware.
Save me from the grasps of MISSINGNO., the world's ultimate glitch creature.


This small game is something special I made for this year's April Fools' Day (original video). It's already 2nd of April, so I decided to publish the game here as a fun challenge.

I might have been a bit inconsiderate when researching Pokémon glitches. I was captured by MISSINGNO. and sent into his world. Now, you need to save me, and MISSINGNO. really wants you to answer a few questions in the meantime...

Oh, and there's also an online high score list - that's what the event is about.
All participants will have their names, scores and messages showcased in a special video on my channel.

Features!
  • You can rescue me.
  • Actually, I'm rescuing myself. You only keep MISSINGNO. busy in the meantime.
  • 30 questions with increasing difficulty.
  • Connected to an online high score list (at least for the next 2 days).
  • If someone plays this game, could you count the Undertale references for me? I'm not very good at it.
Screenshots!

Note: For some unknown reason, Microsoft Security Essentials recognizes this game as a virus. It's most likely because of the code obfuscation techniques used to prevent people from examining the game too easily. To make things even worse, Chrome will also treat the executable as 'unsafe', since Chrome pretty much blocks any EXE that is not commonly downloaded. These are all just false-positives. A virus would make a really bad joke, don't you think? I miss the times when you could make shitty fangames in RPG Maker or something, send them to the Internet and no one would ever complain.

Also, people reported problems with running this game on 64-bit Windows 10 machines. The framework used to create this game was released 9 years ago - this was to be expected. But I didn't have anything better handy, and I had to code the game in a few days. The game runs fine on Wine - there may be some problems with sound, but they can be fixed by installing additional

High scores!

The high score list will be active for the next 2 days (until 4th of April 2016 14:30:00 GMT).

This sentence made me treat this as a reversing challenge.

That was easy. Not saying anything here to stop people from cheating of course.

Deliberately getting some questions wrong helps to get into the actual leaderboard though - and that wasn't me forgetting that the answer key was 0-based, not 1-based, definitely not.

So that should be an easy challenge. The protection was designed to stop script kiddies who know how to type "game maker decompiler" and "cheat engine download" into Google, not actual people who think. It's not a crackme.

Only having some simple code obfuscation causes at least 2 antivirus detections, and the video's comment section is filled with people wanting to try it on a VM or in a sandbox. Imagine what would happen if I tried something more (maybe I should've, because I'm deleting 2-3 hacked scores every day).

Edit: I didn't read the whole post.

That was easy.

I knew it.
