Making a game is hard. Sometimes you need inspiration before you can find motivation, and that’s how I’ve been able to continue working on this game. Nonetheless, development on Project Exion is going swimmingly. I’m still in the story and ideas phase, so the game itself isn’t anywhere near a playable state. In today’s update, I’m going to talk about games and media that Project Exion was inspired by!
It’s no secret that I’m not proud of Cloud’s Forum Adventures. Not only does it look childish (which makes sense, given that I was twelve years old when I made it), but its story is very difficult to follow and often makes zero sense. And despite being a clear ripoff of the Kirby franchise, CFA actually has some similarities to its plot… or should I say, the Kirby series has similarities to CFA’s plot.
That’s right: there are many happenings in CFA that are extremely similar to events in Kirby: Planet Robobot and Kirby Star Allies. Except the CFA episodes were actually released first! Of course, this is most certainly a coincidence, but today, we’re going to compare their plot elements and see what looks the same. Spoilers ahead!
Hey all! As you may or may not know, I’ve been working on a game for the past several months. At the time of writing, it’s not far along at all; in fact, it’s still in the planning phase. Even so, there’s quite a bit I’d like to share with you all. Nothing major yet, mostly proof of concept. Without further ado, let’s get started on today’s updates!
Today is great day for fans of Cloud’s Forum Adventures (and a horrible day for everybody else), because six lost episodes of the series have been fully recovered! These episodes were from Season 6’s first iteration. Their titles are: “The Knux Conspiracy”, “Twilight Transgression”, “Raid on Cloud’s Observatory”, “Enjoy Your Stay”, “The Quest for Sweet and Sour Chicken”, and “The Chicken-Laser Correlation.”
The Cloud’s Forum Adventures Wiki has been updated with new information regarding these episodes. If you would like to read more on their discovery, you may do so here. If you would like to read the lost episodes themselves, follow this link. Thanks for your support!
Cloud’s Forum Adventures (often shortened to CFA) was an awful comic series I worked on from 2012 to 2015. You’ll see what I mean just by reading one episode: its characters are dull, its plot is cliche, and its visuals are awkward and uninteresting.
Over the course of CFA’s lifespan, there were several attempted “reboots” that received one or two episodes before being abruptly cancelled. This post archives all of these episodes and even includes a few that were never released to the general public.

The second iteration of the Nightmare Legion saga was the seventh and final story arc of the series. It’s the best one, too: massively improved visuals, somewhat competent dialogue, and a storyline that isn’t too hard to follow. It’s still brought down by its Kirby-centric designs, but that would’ve been difficult to change.

The first iteration of the Nightmare Legion saga was the sixth story arc of the series. Cloud appears in the land of Imagina and must defeat four Nightmares: Lindol, Odium, Verlust, and… well, you’ll have to read and find out. This was cancelled after 30 episodes, and it isn’t going to be continued in the future. Trust me, it’s for the best.
Please note: this saga may be disturbing to some viewers (no, this is not a joke).
