I'm a total RookieKnight the Good Guy fan much like everyone else, I like the newer games, but I don't mind playing the classics. I don't think I've ever played glitchy or hacked games before, though I don't think I want to play any after the experience I had...
It started on a nice summer afternoon, I was playing RookieKnight Unleashed (I liked how you get to explore the towns in it) until I noticed, out of my peripheral vision, that the mailman had arrived and put something in my mailbox as usual and left. I paused my game to go see what I got in the mail... The only thing in the Mailbox was a CD case for computers and a note. I took it inside.
I looked at the note first and realized it was from my dear friend Clint Eastwood (Let's just call him that), whom I hadn't heard from in 2 weeks. I know that because I recognized his handwriting, though what was weird is how it looked; it looked badly written and scratchy and somewhat difficult to read, as if Clint Eastwood was having a hard time writing it down and did it in a hurry.
This is what he wrote...
I can't take it anymore, I had to get rid of this thing somehow before it was too late, and I was hoping you'd do it for me. I can't do it, he’s after me, and if you don't destroy this CD, he'll come after you too, he's too fast for me....
Please Christopher Walken, destroy this god-forsaken disc before he comes after you too, it's too late for me.
Destroy the disc, and you'll destroy him, but do it quick otherwise he'll catch you. Don't even play the game, it's what he wants, just destroy it.
Well, that was certainly weird. Even though Clint Eastwood IS my best friend and I haven't seen him in 2 weeks, I didn't do what he asked me. I didn't think that a simple gaming disc would do anything bad to him, after all it's just a game right? Boy, was I wrong about that...
ANY way, I looked at the disc and it looks like any ordinary computer CD-R disc, except it had black marker on it written "RookieKnight.EXE", and it was much unlike Clint Eastwood's handwriting, meaning that he must've gotten it from someone else, like a pawn shop or eBay. When I saw "RookieKnight" on the writing of the CD, I was actually excited and wanted to play it, since I'm a a BIG RookieKnight fan.
I went up to my room and turned on my computer and put the disc in and installed the game. When the title screen popped up I noticed that it was the first RookieKnight game, I was like "Awesome!" Because like I said earlier I liked the classics. The first thing I noticed that was out of place was when I pressed start, there's was a split second when I saw the title image turned into something much different, something that I now consider horrifying, before cutting to black.
I remember what the image looked like in that split second before the game cut to black; The sky had darkened, the title emblem was rusted and ruined, the SEGA 1991 was now instead SEGA 666, and the water had turned red, like blood, except it looked hyper-realistic.
But the freakiest thing that was in that split second frame was RookieKnight, his eyes were pitch black and bleeding with two glowing red dots staring RIGHT AT ME, and his smile had stretched wider up to the edge of his face. I was rather disturbed about that image when I saw it, though I figured that it was just a glitch and forgot about it. After it cut to black it stayed like that for about 10 seconds or so. And then another weird thing happened, the save file select from RookieKnight the Good Guy 3 popped up, and I was like "WTF? What's this doing in the first RookieKnight game?", anyway, then I notice something off, the background was the dark cloudy sky of the Bad Stardust Speedway level from RookieKnight CD, and there were only three save files. The music was that creepy Caverns of Winter music from Earthbound, only it was extended and seemed to have been in reverse. And the image for the save file where you see a preview of the level you're on is just red static for all three files.
What freaked me out more was the character select, it showed only Joel from Vinesauce, the fucking Cookie Monster and to my surprise, Kevin Spacey! Now I was sure that something was up, I mean, how can you play as Kevin Spacey in a classic RookieKnight game, for crying out loud?
That's when I realized that this wasn't a glitchy game, it was a hacked game.
Yeah it definitely looked hacked, it was really creepy, but as a smart gamer, I wasn't scared (or at least I tried not to be), I told myself that it was just a hacked game and there's nothing wrong with that. Anyways, shaking off the creeped out feeling I picked File 1 and chose Joel from Vinesauce and when I selected and got started. The game froze for about 5 seconds and I heard a creepy pixelated orgasm that sounded an awful lot like that Loud Nigra guy from those funi Silvagunner videos before cutting to black.
The screen stayed black for about 10 seconds or more, then it showed the typical level title thing, except the simplistic shapes were different shades of red and the text showed only "HILL, ACT 1". The screen faded in and the level title vanished revealing Joel from Vinesauce in the Green Hill Zone from RookieKnight 1, the music was different though, it sounded like a peaceful melody in reverse. Anyway I started playing and had Joel from Vinesauce start running like you would in any of the classic RookieKnight games, what was odd was that as Joel from Vinesauce was running along the level there was nothing but flat ground and a few trees for 5 minutes, that was when the peaceful music started to lower down into slow deep tones very slowly as I kept going.
I suddenly saw something and I stopped to see what it was; it was one of the small animals lying dead on the ground bleeding (That was when the music started to slow down), Joel from Vinesauce had a shocked and saddened look on his face that I never saw him have before, so I had him move along, and he kept that worried look on his face. As he kept moving I saw more dead animals as Joel from Vinesauce moved past them looking more and more worried as the music lowers and he moves past more dead animals, I was shocked to see how they all died, they looked like somebody killed them in rather gruesome ways; a squirrel was hanged on a tree with what appeared to be his entrails hanging out, a bunny had all four of his limbs torn off and a duck had his eyes gouged out and his throat slit. I felt sick to my sChristopher Walkenach when I saw this massacre and apparently so did Joel from Vinesauce. After a few more seconds there were no more animals and the music seemed to have stopped, I still kept Joel from Vinesauce to continue.
After a minute passed after the music stopped, Joel from Vinesauce was running up a hill and then he stopped, it wasn't until I saw why; RookieKnight was there on the other side of the screen with his back against Joel from Vinesauce with his eyes closed. Joel from Vinesauce looked happy to see RookieKnight but then his smile faltered, obviously noticing that RookieKnight wasn't responding to him, if not acting as if he was totally oblivious of Joel from Vinesauce' presence. Joel from Vinesauce walked slowly toward RookieKnight, and I noticed that I wasn't even moving my keyboard to make him move, so this had to have been a cut scene.
Suddenly I began to have a growing feel of dread as Joel from Vinesauce walked closer to RookieKnight to get his attention, I felt that Joel from Vinesauce was in danger and something bad was going to happen. I heard faint static growing louder as Joel from Vinesauce was but inches away from RookieKnight and stopped and stuck his hand out to touch him. That foreboding feeling in my gut was growing stronger and I felt the urge to tell Joel from Vinesauce to get away from RookieKnight as the static grew louder.
Suddenly in a split second I saw RookieKnight's eyes open and they were black with those red glowing dots, just like that title image, thought there wasn't a smile. When that happened the screen turned black and the static sound was off.
It stayed black for about 7 seconds and then white text appeared forming a message, saying, "Hello. Do you want to play with me?"
At this point I was creeped out, I didn't want to continue with the game, but my curiosity got the better of me when I was taken to a different level with the level title now saying "HIDE AND SEEK".
This time I was in the Boston, Massachusetts level from RookieKnight 3 and it looked like everything was on fire.
Joel from Vinesauce looked as though he was scared out of his wits this time. He actually looked at me and made frantic gestures to me as if he wanted to get out of the area he was in as fast as possible. I was starting to get freaked out by this...I mean Joel from Vinesauce was actually breaking the fourth wall, trying to tell me to get him out of there.
So I pressed down on the arrow key as hard as I could and made him run as fast as he could, a pixelated version of that creepy theme when you meet Hulk Hogan at the Madison Square Garden as Kevin Spacey from SA2 was playing as I made Joel from Vinesauce trek through the desolate forest, trying to help him escape from whatever he was trying to run from.
Suddenly I heard that creepy orgasm again... that awful, Loud Nigra orgasm... right after 10 seconds have passed as I helped Joel from Vinesauce run through the forest, and then I started seeing flashes of RookieKnight popping everywhere on the screen, again with those black and red eyes.
The music changed to that suspenseful drowning jingle as I see RookieKnight behind Joel from Vinesauce slowly gaining up on him FLYING; RookieKnight wasn't running, he was actually FLYING! The flying pose his sprite was making looked very similar to Metal RookieKnight's flying pose in RookieKnight CD, except it was just RookieKnight and he had the black and red eyes again, only
THIS time he had the most deranged looking grin on his face, he looked as though he was enjoying the torment he was giving the poor little swede as he gained up on him.
Suddenly when Joel from Vinesauce tripped (another cut scene) the music stopped and RookieKnight vanished. Joel from Vinesauce laid there and started crying for 15 seconds. The scene was rather upsetting to watch and I kind of teared up myself. But then RookieKnight appeared right in front of Joel from Vinesauce and Joel from Vinesauce looked up in horror.
Blood started to come down those blackened eyes of RookieKnight's as a grin slowly grew from his face as he looked down at the horrified swede, I could do nothing but watch.
Just in a split second RookieKnight lunged at Joel from Vinesauce right before the screen went black, there was a loud screeching noise that only lasted 5 seconds. The text returned only this time it said "You're too slow, want to try again?" and then that god-awful orgasm came with it.
I was so shocked by what had happened...did RookieKnight murder Joel from Vinesauce? No, he couldn't have... He and Joel from Vinesauce are supposed to be best friends, right? Why did RookieKnight do that to him?
I shook the shock off as I was brought back to the character select, the save file that had Joel from Vinesauce was different; Joel from Vinesauce was no longer in the box itself but in the TV screen itself, which was flickering with that red static, Joel from Vinesauce' expression scared me, his eyes were black and bleeding, his orange fur had gone black and he had an expression of anguish on his face, Trying to ignore it I picked the fucking Cookie Monster next.
The orgasm came again and the screen cut to black again and stayed there for another 10 seconds, this time the level said "YOU CAN'T RUN".
I was really freaked out by now, I couldn't really tell if this was a glitch, or a hack, or some kind of sick twisted joke... or anything really. But despite my fear of what happened next, I kept playing.
The next level looked much different, it had the ground of the Scrap Brain zone, but the sky background looked like the main menu; it had the dark reddish cloudy sky. But it was the music that creeped me out the most: It sounded like Giygas' theme right after you beat Pokey in Earthbound. I also noticed that the fucking Cookie Monster looked afraid just like Joel from Vinesauce did, though not as much, more rather he looked a little unnerved. He broke the fourth wall just like Joel from Vinesauce and looked as if he wasn't sure about going on, but I made him move anyway.
He ran down the straight pathway in this dark level, and as he did the screen started to flicker red static a couple times and then that maddening orgasm came again.
Then after a few seconds of running I notice several bloodstains on the metallic ground, I felt a growing sense of fear again thinking something horrible is going to happen to the fucking Cookie Monster. He looked nauseated walking down this blood-stained road, but I still kept him going.
Suddenly as the fucking Cookie Monster ran, RookieKnight appeared right in front of him with those black and red eyes and then red static appeared again, when the static vanished showing nothing but black screen with text saying "FOuNd YOu!", I was now scared, RookieKnight found the fucking Cookie Monster already?! What was going on?!
Anyway red static came again and then I was back to the level, the fucking Cookie Monster looked like he was panicking, and RookieKnight was nowhere to be found. And this time that high-pitched squealing from the Silent Hill 1's final boss was playing.
Was this some kind of boss battle with RookieKnight? I hoped to God it wasn't, honestly.
Suddenly RookieKnight appeared right behind the fucking Cookie Monster in what appeared to be pixelated black smoke, I made the fucking Cookie Monster turn and then punch RookieKnight, but RookieKnight vanished in black pixelated smoke before I could even land a hit, that terrible orgasm went off again. Then RookieKnight appeared behind the fucking Cookie Monster again and then I made him punch again, and RookieKnight vanished again orgasming. the fucking Cookie Monster was panicking even more, and even I felt like I was going crazy, RookieKnight was practically playing with us, he was playing a sick twisted little mind game with me and the fucking Cookie Monster...
Another cut scene played as Cookie Monster fell to his knees and clutched his head sobbing, I felt his agony, RookieKnight was actually driving us BOTH crazy.
And then in a split second RookieKnight lunged at the fucking Cookie Monster and the screen went black with another distorted screeching noise that lasted for at least 3 seconds.
Another text message appeared, "So many souls to play with, so little time... would you agree?"
What the hell... Just what is going on? I started to think RookieKnight was actually trying to talk to me through the game... But I was too scared to think that.
I was brought back to the main menu and this time the second file box had the fucking Cookie Monster in the TV screen, his red fur had darkened to a reddish grey, his dreadlocks were dripping with blood and his eyes were black and bleeding too, and he had a look of sadness on his face. I began to think that those are the actual characters trapped in those TV screens on the save files, but I couldn't believe it... I didn't want to believe it...
So I shut off the game and took a break. I took a nap, wish I hadn't, 'cause I then began to have the most disturbing nightmare, I was in pitch black darkness, though I was under the light given off by a lamp that hung high above my head. I could hear the cries of the fucking Cookie Monster and Joel from Vinesauce nearby. They were saying stuff like, "Help us..." and "Why did you give us to him?" and "Run away, before he gets you too..."
Their cries died out as I then heard RookieKnight laugh, his laugh... it sounded a lot like the distorted Loud Nigra orgasm.
"You're a lot fun to play with kid, just like your friend Clint Eastwood, though he didn't last long..."
I was scared and looking around for the source of the voice...
"Won't be long now until you join him and all my other friends..."
I saw him walking toward me, flickering in and out in several directions...
"You can't run, kid. You're in my world now. Just like the others..."
When he grabbed me and I saw his bleeding black and red-eyed, grinning face, I woke up with a fright.
After a couple of hours I decided to continue playing the game. I don’t know why, but I had to know, I had to figure out why this was happening... So I turned on the computer, turned on the game and selected Kevin Spacey next.
I still thought that was wacky, playing as Kevin Spacey, but anyway the level title appeared again and this time it said "...", which I found really freaky.
This time I was in some kind of hallway, didn't really look like it was from any of the classic RookieKnight games, though it has the pixelated style; the floor was shiny and checkered, the walls were a dark greyish purple with animated candlelight’s and a few dark bloodstains here and there, and there was a dark red curtain hanging above on the top part of the screen. Every 12 seconds or so that red curtain sways very slowly, but whenever you're playing the game you can barely see it move. The music was oddly pleasant, a piano playing a rather sad yet peaceful song, but I knew better, this was the song that played in Hill act 1, only it wasn't in reverse.
Kevin Spacey didn't look entirely nervous like Joel from Vinesauce and the fucking Cookie Monster did, but he did have a suspicious look on his face as if he was just a bit paranoid. He did a little animation when I just left him standing, he turns his head to the left and then to the right at least twice and then shrugs at me, as if he has no idea where he was or what was going on. Even though I was scared outta my mind about what was going to happen, I had Kevin Spacey continue onward. He did his usual running animation (You know, when you've beaten him at the end of a classic RookieKnight game and you chase him) as we continued going through the hallway.
Then I stop at a long flight of stairs leading downward, now I was nervous, even Kevin Spacey seemed unsure of himself, though I pressed onward.
As I led Kevin Spacey down the stairs, I noticed that the walls have gotten darker and more reddish; the red torches are now an eerie blue. Then we landed onto another hallway, this one was longer than the last one (or at least it felt like it) and then we headed down another flight of stairs down, this one was much longer, took at least 1 full minute.
And then I heard that horrid Loud Nigra orgasm again and then the music slowly faded until it was quiet, as it did the walls turned more dark red and the torches were a black flame now.
When Kevin Spacey landed onto the 3rd hallway, I noticed he now looked really creeped out, though he tried to hide it, I couldn't blame him, I was scared too.
Suddenly, RookieKnight popped right in front of Kevin Spacey the same way he did the fucking Cookie Monster and then red static. The red static lasted for about 15 second and then it showed me a most unpleasant image...
The image showed a hyper-realistic of RookieKnight standing in the darkness where you can only see his face while his head and torso faded into black, and when I say hyper-realistic, I mean like he looked so real you could actually see the lines in his blue fur, as if you could actually feel the fur if you touched the screen.
His face...oh god, he had the most horrifying smile I had ever seen.
And that's saying something considering I saw that image at the start of the game.
His eyes are wide and black and once again crying blood (Which also looked hyper-realistic) and there were two small glowing red dots in those black eyes staring RIGHT AT ME, as if staring into my mind. His grin was wide and demonic, it literally stretched to the sides of his face like a Cheshire Cat except RookieKnight had fangs, VERY SHARP fangs, much like the Werehog's teeth except more vicious-looking, somewhat yellowish and from the look of it, he had stains of blood and small bits of flesh on his lips and fangs as if he ate some animal.
I stared at that gruesome image for a good 30 seconds, never taking my eyes off it, I felt as if he was actually looking at me, smiling at me...that face, it just took 10 seconds for it to etch itself into my brain for good.
Then the screen flickered with red static again 3 times, and on the 3rd time I heard the Loud Nigra orgasm, except this time it sounded distorted, demonic even...
It went back to the image again except this time there was the text again though it was messed up, but it was pretty much one of the most horrifying things I looked at since I had this game...
"YOU SUCKED ASS IN PULP FICTION."
It was when I read that message while looking at RookieKnight when it hit me, I realized right there and then.
This RookieKnight was a monster, a pure evil, sadistic, all-powerful, nightmarish, demented monster... and all of his victims, including Joel from Vinesauce, the fucking Cookie Monster, Kevin Spacey and possibly Clint Eastwood, are just his little toys, and the game is the very gateway into his chaotic, nightmarish world and the very Hell his victims are trapped in.
Suddenly in an actual split second I screamed as RookieKnight lunged at the screen screeching loudly with his mouth wide open to an unnatural length revealing nothing but a literally spiraling abyss of pure darkness before the red static came again, this time much louder and distorted, so loud that it hurt my ears, I yelled and grabbed my ears as the red static screeched for a good 7 seconds.
Then it stopped and showed nothing but black screen.
As I sat there staring at the black screen, one last text came up.
"Ready for Round 2, Christopher Walken?"
The Loud Nigra orgasm, now sounding more clear as if RookieKnight was right behind me, played again 3 times as I looked at that text in shock and confusion.
Then I got booted back to the main menu and this time the third save file had a TV image of Kevin Spacey in the same, tormented state as Joel from Vinesauce and the fucking Cookie Monster; Kevin Spacey's skin turned a dull grey, his mustache drooped and had blackened, his glasses broke and blood is coming from them and he had a mere dead like expression on his face.
I looked at Joel from Vinesauce, the fucking Cookie Monster and Kevin Spacey and I cried a bit, I pitied them for the agony they're going through, they were forever trapped within the game, forever tormented by that horrid Good Guy, and always will be.
Then the computer shut itself off, I couldn't turn it back on no matter what I did.
I sat there for maybe 25 seconds, horrified by what had just happened...
RookieKnight is the very embodiment of evil, he tortures people who play his game in more ways than one and then when he gets bored he drags you into the game, literally drags you to Hell, where he can play with you always, as his toy....
I can't get the game outta my computer. I think it's stuck in there, but at least I managed to turn it back on now.
After I sat there for 25 seconds I heard a voice right behind me, like a whisper...
"Try to keep this interesting for me, Christopher Walken."
I turned around to see where the voice came from, and what I saw made me scream...
Sitting on my bed... staring right at me...
... Was a RookieKnight plushie, smiling with bloodstains under its eyes.
Pls delete this Edit Edit
I am so sorry RookieKnight, i shamed your name with this piece of shit rehash of Sonic.exe
