is a Web site for Flash movies, games and the like.
Their works The Trapped Trilogy
have trope pages of their own. It is also based on slight religious material (See Author Appeal
Tropes Associated with Godlimations:
- Author Appeal: The games have a slightly Christian-based flavor because Patrick likes this.
- Adventure Game: One of their strong points. Although sometimes the...circumstances in how to escape are contrived, to say the least.
- Badass: Zombie Inglor.
- Intercontinuity Crossover: There are sometimes hints that some of the games take place in the same continuity, in Amea, you can not only find Inglor as a boss, near the end, Amea can't remember his exact name, but she's clearly talking about Dan McNeely.
- And of course, there's also Flash Bash, a Mascot Fighter containing characters from various games, including McNeely and Amea.
- MST: There was one of the Trapped Series made by Retsupurae.
- Small Name, Big Ego: Some of the author's responses to legitimate criticisms are pretty childish.
Married couple Ira and Jonathan get into a car crash and are forced to search for help. Their search takes them to a town covered in a mysterious fog. From there they find themselves trapped in a convenient store with strangers, surrounded by dangerous monsters...
- Adventure Game: It's about as contrived as The Trapped Trilogy.
- Aerith and Bob: We have names like Ira and Tark, and then we have names like Jonathan and Seth.
- Attempted Rape: Seth to Ira. Jonathan intervenes.
- The Bible: Seth carries one around and even reads specific verses to the other characters.
- Captain Ersatz: Seth is a male version of Mrs. Carmody.
- Crap Sack World
- Darker and Edgier: The story goes out of its way to make sure you get how wretched these biblical End Time happenings will be by not pulling any punches on violence, gore, etc. However, Anya's death scene is a grossly tasteless and unnecessary attempt at this. Compare it to Gage Creed's death scene from Pet Sematary (which Anya's is basically a knockoff of, anyway).
- Dark and Troubled Past: Ira and Jonathan's relationship is strained by the death of their daughter due to neglect. Both seem to blame themselves (perhaps each other, as well?) for what happened.
- Downer Ending: Jonathan makes Ira shoot him to ease his pain. It does nothing and Ira's left with a twitching, suffering Jonathan in her arms, crying out desperately for anybody to help them. Note that this is essentially the same end made use of in The Mist but the writer decided to make it worse.
- Fate Worse than Death: No one who's been stung by the locusts can die, so any injury they sustain they will be alive and conscious for regardless of how bad it is. Special mention goes to Rick, who's reduced to a pile of twitching, mangled flesh by shotgun and Jonathan, who's stabbed by numerous monsters and left bleeding and in immense pain. Not helped by the fact that, when trying to get himself killed near the end, it only makes Jonathan's pain worse.
- Holier Than Thou: Seth.
- Non-Action Guy: Jonathan suffers from this. He spends the entire story not doing much of anything, leaving most of the work to his wife, Ira. This could be attributed to the injury he received in the car accident at the beginning, except he seemed to move just fine in a couple of cut-scenes (which meant if he really wanted to help, he could've).
- Adventure Game: Not as contrived as The Trapped Trilogy, but, it has it's moments.
- Children Are Innocent: The little girl is the only human who displays any hesitance or remorse about their actions, and she actually ends up helping the main character.
- Gainax Ending: The ending of the second installment is so short and full of jump cuts, with no real explanation of what it's depicting, that it's a little hard to follow. Apparently, the goliath escapes back to its world, and the humans somehow get a bottle of vitality which maybe cures them... or something?
- Humans Are Bastards: Subverted, apparently, they didn't become more violent or turn into monsters until they started eating the monsters.
- The Reveal: You are the monster!
