G*mer Skrell (Qoi's Holoconsole!)

Recommended Posts

Byond key:  ShesTrying

Discord key: ProbablyTrying#4393

Character Name: Qoi Liuiq

Items: A games console with a case and removable controllers! List below with names and descriptions :)

Holoconsole: A game console capable of displaying a three-dimensional, holographic image of the player's game of choice. It's pink!


left Holoconsole controller/right Holoconsole controller: A controller for the Holoconsole, capable of folding in half and re-attaching to the machine. It's pink!


Holoconsole case: A case for the Holoconsole. This one is made of fabric, with various iron-on patches attached to it. It's pink!


Item function(s):

I've put quite a bit of thought into how this item will work, and while I know it's quite complicated, @geeves has offered to do it for me, because he is a very good bean and I love him very much. Not because of ERP tokens, or anything...

The Console: The console itself will be the most complex piece, but I've done my best to map out everything I would love to have happen with it.

Interact In-Hand: The console would play a sound from the arcade machine's repetoire, beeping and blipping, and so on and so forth. 

Right click: The console should be able to turn off/on, basically just turning the animation on and off. It should also show the option to remove the left controller/remove the right controller. Removing a controller should display a lil' message like "Firstname Lastname removes the left/right controller from the Holoconsole, folding it out with a satisfying snap!" Clicking on the console with a controller in your hand should re-attach the controller to the console's proper side, be it left or right, and display a lil' message like "Firstname Lastname folds up the left/right controller, sliding it back into place on the Holoconsole with a satisfying click!" 

The Controllers: The controllers should only really need to detach and re-attach to the main console as described above, with the added mechanic of interacting with them in-hand playing the arcade sounds, aswell. 

The Case: When the Holoconsole is in the case, it should be shut/zipped up, and be able to be flipped over to display either side with a right click! When the Holoconsole is out, it should open up and display as empty, as shown in the sprites above. 

Why is your character bringing this item to work?: I think it's pretty well-known at this point that Qoi is a massive nerd. She's been raving for a while about pre-ordering her latest console, and this will bring that to a nice head. Engineering has quite a bit of free time after roundstart setup, and Qoi's brought this to entertain herself (and annoy her coworkers) with some well-needed videogame violence. 

How did your character obtain this item: Through a SUPER EXCLUSIVE, SUPER EXCITING, preorder of the newest Space Force game and console combined! She went online and entered her credit card details

What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell?: As stated above, Qoi is a big, massive nerd. She loves everything tech, and especially her own favourite series Space Force. It brings her nerdiness to a whole new level, and of course, as any nerd will tell you, gaming is a huge part of what they love to do in their spare time. As far as story goes, I think it will really help to elevate the character some, and create a good amount of roleplay when she forces asks her coworkers politely to play her in Space Force Versus. 

Additional Comments: Thank you so so so so much to @Happy_Fox and @geeves for helping to make my g*mer skrell dreams a reality.
