An amateur film made by Mark Leung and his fellow Babson College students and released on the Internet in 2006. The entire plot is a send-up of Japanese RPGs (such as Final Fantasy), complete with random battles, pop-up text and extras walking back and forth along the same path. The original upload can be found here.The series was recently re-released in HD (480p) on the same YouTubechannel.Mark Leung now has his own independent game company, Uglysoft. Sure enough, his first project is a playable (planned to be episodic) Final Fantasy parody game titled Mark Leung, which is also a spiritual successor to College Saga.
Diculous: ...But vegetables are good for you. Mark: No it's not! Diculous: Yes it is! Mark: No it's not! Diculous: Yes it is! Mark: No it's not! Diculous: Yes it is! Mark: No it's not! Diculous(shaking fist): !@#$%^&*(Fight Woosh)
Disproportionate Retribution: Jonathon the Roommate smacks Jesús for a whole 1 point of damage. Jesús responds by trying to nuke him with Meteor (only failing because he didn't have enough MAGIC to cast it).
Easter Egg: A literal Easter egg is buried by the characters at one point. At the very end, it cracks open on Easter to reveal Jesús back from the dead.
Eldritch Location: The Cursed Structure. As long as it exists, mankind will continue to eat vegetables.
Look Both Ways: In one scene, Mark and Maria are standing in the middle of a road, and are struck by a passing car.
Luke, I Am Your Father: Used, and then inverted. The man in the Chocolate Tree is actually Mark's father, and Real Diculous is in turn the son, or rather, daughter, of Mark and Maria.
Logic Bomb: Confusing a TI-83 calculator-esque killer robot by inserting a Mac OS X CD.
Meaningful Name: Jesús. In the end he chooses to stay behind and confront the berserk TI-83 to buy Mark and Maria time to escape Diculous's lair. Three days later he emerges unscathed from the literal Easter Egg Mark buried earlier in the game.
Metal Slime: Dick Cheney seems to be one, as he always runs away/self destructs before the party can kill him.
Nations of the World Montage: As Leviathan explains the effects of vegetaria, we see images of stereotypical people around the world collapsing from the effects of the disease, covering diverse places as Mexico (a mariachi), Pennsylvania (an Amish), the Arctic (an Inuit), Detroit (a carjacker), Wall Street (a businessman), San Francisco (a gay couple), China (a cyclist), Greenland (a man on a patch of grass), Iceland (another man on an ice rink), Canada (a hockey player), Vienna (a pianist), England (a footballer), Japan (Ultraman), North Korea (censored), Lake Chaubunagungamaug in Massachusetts, Llanfairpwllgwyngyll in Wales, Taumata in New Zealand, Madagascar (Alex the lion from the animated movie of the same name), South Park (Kenny flatlining), Windurst (a Tarutaru), and Hogwarts (Cedric).
