Marty's Escape

RWS / STREAM Filenames Audio Dialogue Comments
penguin_02_explaination_04 /
Skipper: The first gate we need to open is Gate Hippo. The Hippo Key is located in the Janitor's shed, but the only way in there is a small crawl space. Meant for the Escape Plan cutscene. Implies Gate Hippo (Gloria) was considered for the level. The final game partially uses this line, and "ostrich" is awkwardly edited in.

cs_elephant_tiki_02 /
Marty: You mean Darnel? The elephant?
unskippable_1stpowercard /
Skipper: Get the Power Card from the elephant. It's impossible to talk to Skipper prior to talking to Darnel for this to trigger.

01_marty_becareful_02 /
Marty: Better stay away from those guards unless I want to get tasered, and I don't want to.
01_marty_becareful_03 /
Marty: This place is crawling with rent‑a‑cops!
01_marty_becareful_04 /

01_guards_koguard_01 /
Patrolling Guard: C'mon, Taylor! How many times I gotta tell ya? No more naps by the sound poles! Dialogue for the Patrolling Guard.

cs_ostrich_02_02 /
Marty: Yeah… and that would be a real shame.
01_kowalski_talktotoucan /

Skipper: That Janitor is not just gonna give you his key card. You've got to take him down. Alternate version of the Janitor tutorial. The Janitor originally had the key to the security system.
01_kowalski_kojanitor_02 /
Skipper: Glad to see you're still with us, Marty. I've got it on very good authority that the Janitor nearby is holding a key card to the main gate's security system.

Mason: I couldn't help but notice you seem to be wondering about. Don't forget about us. Mason calling out to Marty.
cs_afterpenguinend_marty /

Zoo Hunter: I'd like to see one of them critters try something now! (laughs) Zoo Hunter comments.
zoohunter_knowyourplace /
Zoo Hunter: Dang varmint! Know their place!
cs_elephant_tiki_03 /
Not Skipper: Elephants can be quite adept in the art of subterfuge. No one ever suspects them, except for the weasel. Lousy rodents. Placeholder from the Darnel cutscene.
penguin_01_elephant /
Not Skipper: Alright. The elephant's got the first Power Tiki, so talk to him. Placeholder dialogue for the Power Card sequence. They're called Power Tikis at this point in development.

01_kowalski_guardswarning /
Not Skipper: There are guards up ahead. Stay out of the view code and they won't see ya. If you can, sneak up behind 'em and give 'em a good kick. Placeholder Skipper hints for knocking out guards to progress. Filenames suggest that Kowalski was meant to escort Marty or that the developers got the two names mixed up.
01_kowalski_guardsgoshed /
Not Skipper: Good, you have earned the crawl ability. There's still a guard in the way though. I can't get us over to the shed without being spotted until you knock him out.

Not Skipper: With this kind of efficiency, we'll be outta here in no time! Placeholder Skipper dialogue praising Marty for something.

cs_ostrich_01_01 /
Not Ostrich 1: What are you doing out of your pen, zebra? You think you're too good for this zoo or something? Placeholder dialogue for the Ostrich cutscene. The ostriches weren't so willing to help Marty originally.
cs_ostrich_01_02 /
Not Ostrich 2: Of course he does! He's been pulling this whole mopey, midlife crisis, "what does it all mean?" act for weeks now. Now he wants to leave in search of "truth". How pedestrian!
cs_ostrich_01_03 /
Not Marty: Um, hey. I actually had a question for you two guys, but now I'm thinking you wouldn't know the answer.
cs_ostrich_01_04 /
Not Ostrich 2: Oh look! He's trying to use reverse psychology in an attempt to goat us into helping him. (laughs)

penguin_bluegateguards /
Not Skipper: Ah, so close. There are guards in the way, but I'm sure those sound poles in the area must be of some good use.
penguin_zb_newguardatbird /
Not Skipper: That one's new. That guard must be here to investigate why the other guards are all… asleep. Go take care of him so we can move on and get on to Gate Monkey.
peng10__blue_gate_is_locked /
Not Skipper: Nice job. Now open the gate to Zone Monkey. Placeholder dialogue for Zone Ostrich going to Zone Monkey. (version 2)
01_kowalski_askostrich_blue /
Not Skipper: Key terminal that controls the blue gate is just ahead, but that guard's not going to just let us walk through. We might need a little extra help here. See if the ostriches nearby happen to know anything.
peng14__courtyard_too_crowded /
Not Skipper: My forward recon of the main courtyard is not good. The entire area is crawling with guards. Therefore, I need you to create a diversion. As undisciplined as those monkeys are, I feel they are right for this mission. Find a way to insert them from their current position in the Mess Hall into the main courtyard. I recommend you enter the gift shop through the side door and go from there into the Mess Hall.
peng12__shortcut /
Not Skipper: And we're in. We made it to Zone Monkey, so come and follow me. Placeholder dialogue for entering Zone Monkey.
penguin_zb_kickgateguards /
Not Skipper: These guards are blocking the way into the next section, but I see a cart on the other side, so you might be able to get rid of them that way. Why don't ya sneak around the monkey cage and see if you can get over there? Good luck.
01_kowalski_monkey_02 /
Not Skipper: Alright, so the next step is for both of us to crawl through this pipe and into the next section. I hope you don't have any fear of enclosed spaces. Placeholder dialogue for the Pipe cutscene.
cs_monkey_marty_01 /
Not Marty: Enclosed spaces? There's no way I can fit through that pipe! This is your master plan?
01_kowalski_monkey_03 /

01_kowalski_monkey_05 /
Not Skipper: I'll go through this pipe and see you on the other side.
rwmonkeys1 /
Not Mason: I say, is this a jailbreak? If you let us out, we'll get the green key for you! The controls to open the cage are in the security booth. You'll need to find a way to get that guard out of there. Placeholder dialogue of Mason telling you to help him unlock his cage so he can get the next key for you. In the final game, Mason tells you to get the Zone Bear Key from the Janitor instead.

rwmonkeys3 /
Not Mason: Try again.
monkeys1__is_this_a_jail_break /
Not Mason: I say, old boy. Is this a jailbreak? Well count us in! We heard what your friend said about climbing through that Zoovenir skylight, and we're just the chaps for the job! I'm afraid that at the moment we're a bit indisposed in this enclosure. The controls to open our door are in the security booth, but the door is locked and there's a guard in there. You'll have to find some way to get the guard out of the booth! Perhaps there's something in that shed that will help. Placeholder Mason dialogue (version 2).
monkeys2__guard_out_booth /
Not Mason: Good job, old boy! The guard is leaving the security booth and heading your way. Don't let him see you. While he's distracted, go open our cage.
monkeys4__the_cage_is_open /
Not Mason: Oh! Fine work, Marty! Our door is open! Now get the dickens out of there!
monkeys5__wrong_skylight /
Not Mason: Sorry about that, old chum, but it appears we went in the wrong skylight. We won't be able to give you the key to the gift shop, but under a jar of marmalade in here, we did happen to find a key to open the bear area gate. Cheers!
cs_bear_06 /
Not Polar Bear: Yeah. Anyway, for the guards up ahead you're gonna need to use more than one sound pole to get them into a position where you can take 'em out. Finding the right order is all you need to do, dude. Placeholder dialogue for a scrapped line from the Polar Bear cutscene.
cs_penguin_end_05 /
Not Marty: Thanks, man! I really do appreciate the help. Placeholder dialogue for the Balloon cutscene.
zoo_janitor_feetsdontfailmenow /

cherry_alexpowerstone /
Not Maurice: Alex, you won't be able to begin this goal until you collect your three Power Stones to get your Throw ability activated. Placeholder Power Card reminder. Also suggests that Alex's Throw move was meant to be unlocked for the Onion minigame instead of in Mysterious Jungle.

Development Messages

To do:
Check for any more noteworthy/amusing messages.

Many of the scripts in this game have developer comments with them to specify what code has what function. While there's way too much to document here, here are some of the interesting bits.

Comment(s) Level Notes
ED DG - If I have a mango in my hand, I better damn well get rid of it! Any level where you can throw Mangoes This message is above the code where Alex throws the mangoes (and thus gets rid of them). "DG" likely refers to designer Daniel Gerstein, and "ED" remains unidentified.
GF - We need to turn these suckers on before we can calculate their widths None (general files) "Suckers" seems to be referring to button prompts. It's currently unknown who "GF" is.
HERE IS THE PROBLEM! None (general files) Found within code for "Generic Slider Menu Sprites".
I AM TOBY'S UNCOMMENTED MASS OF DEFINITIONS None (general files) Likely referring to Toby Schadt, the lead designer.
DG - You can't trust anyone nowadays

Someone stole dishwashing detergent from my car
I mean, come on

Marty's Escape Those darn kids.
okay, enough of this crap - ATTACK! Save the Lemurs! Referring to the Foosas. This was snuck in after correcting errors in the "hurt" values.
Player beat first segment - this is a sucky way to do it but oh well. Final Battle The way the cutscene was animated didn't seem to satisfy the animator.
THE BPM CHANGES HERE... AW SHIT Lemur Rave This message is above the code which increases the song's BPM and when the button commands come in faster.
HOLY SHIT - JUICY SWEET JUICY SWEET JUICY SWEET Lemur Rave "Juicy Sweet" is a point bonus you can receive during the level if 100% "Perfect" is achieved.
(FRED STOPPED MY MUSICAL TRAIN OF THOUGHT) Lemur Rave Possibly referring to Fred Ford, the technical director.

Cutscene Identifiers

For the game's cutscenes, each separate camera shot is given an identifier to specify what it is. While most are simple descriptions, some of them are quite amusing.

Melman - we're fucked

This is for Melman's last line of dialogue for the ending cutscene in N.Y. Street Chase . He actually says "Guys, hey, uh, I hope those needles have been sterilized."

longer shot of marty looking at his ass

This is used in the ending after Marty lands on the Foosa boss...just before he talks to the latter's rear end. It should be noted that there are two versions of the animation for this cutscene, both with this same identifier.

melman my immune system blah blah I'm a wuss

Used for the ending when Melman says "My immune system is started to get used to the indigenous bacteria in all of your fur!"

skipper antarctica SUCKS

This is used for the game's ending when Skipper says "Antarctica; nothing but a bunch of ice!" It definitely gets the point across.
