What is Nolok?

What is Nolok? From what I see, he looks like some sort of Wolf. Why does he want Penny, and what will he do with her? One thing I never got about Bowser is the reason why he wanted to kidnap Peach.

Well, maybe he wants to marry her? Or destroy tux/mario and using penny/peach as a bait

He wants to... it's not clear.

Maybe Nolok wants to eat Penny. He takes her from Tux, goes to his castle and puts Penny into his refrigerator. Then Nolok goes to the forest world and searches for herbs for his meal, in the same time Tux walks to the castle to free Penny. The castle doors are not locked because a Jeti forcefully made its way in the castle and took Penny from the refrigerator. Before Tux knows this, he enters the castle and searches for Penny but he only finds traces of the Jeti's hair. Then he leaves the castle, finds the Jeti and defeats it.

Not that unreasonable considering he would "eat gnu for supper".

It's alright, but a bit overcomplicated.

Well, shouldn't the people who first made the game know?

Well, Nolok's appearances are very scarce. In Milestone 1 he is only referenced in text and has no physical appearance besides a statue. Sadly since this statue was very vague the new Milestone 2 sprites of Nolok have been quite horribly misinterpreted from his original design (see below). As for what he is, ask Grumbel. He's the one who designed him.

How many people from milestone 1 are still around? Also did anyone else talk to Grumble when discussing the general plot?

Grumbel is the only last Milestone 1 dev currently working on SuperTux. He seems to work on and off having rather large gaps in-between him working on SuperTux. At the moment it looks like he's only handling the code side of the game and nothing content based, which leads me to believe the team are just focusing on polishing the game. Hopefully that doesn't mean 0.6.0 is the final update.

No, I think the team definitely wants to include mutliplayer, swimming, and a finished forest world, just most likely not in the few next updates.

But I'm not part of the team, so I dunno.

I'd say you're pretty accurate.

Are you a dev? If you are, why do you speak about implementing other worlds like they have three in their back pocket? And wouldn't you know what they have planned for 0.6.0? I'm not trying to be sarcastic, I'm just a little confused.

I'm pretty sure ProTux is not a SuperTux dev, ProTux has only been on the forum for a little over a month. While the team does have plenty of worlds to pick from (over three "in their back pocket"), most of them are sub-par (including the forest world as of right now) and are all in the contrib levels. Even the current Icy Island Levels could be done better! There are people who design levels very well yet their levels are not being put into the main game, or they are not willing to help redesign old boring levels (with the exception of RustyBox and Serano). I am not a dev but I do not think 0.6.0 is going to include many notable changes (besides some graphics/editor/language/font changes and fixes). ProTux should not be acting like they are a developer of the game if they are not. ProTux, if you are making art for SuperTux, you should show us. Please no one take offense by this.

Nolok is the mythical antarctic arch king, currently ruling Antarctica's underworld (filled with pits of lava and his soldiers)

What he wants to do with penny is to keep her locked up in a prison room next door to his throne room.

Nolok's attacks and abilities:


*Ice storm
Nolok causes icicles atop of a ceiling to fall down on Tux and hurt him


*charge attack
Nolok tries to hit Tux by running into him.


*Paralysis magic
Nolok can partially paralyze Tux or Penny. used on Penny when Nolok knocked Tux out.


*Summoning magic

Nolok can summon an enemy (maybe a kamikazie snowball, fireball, or a spiky) or a large snowball or ice boulder (see below) to attack tux


*strength

Nolok is a strong person, which he can push a large snowball or ice boulder to crush Tux by summoning it with his magic.
