It’s not uncommon for me to think up parody titles for video games, and I know I’m not the only one who does it. The other day, I came up with one I’m rather proud of, even though I don’t know for sure it hasn’t been done before: Chrono Tigger, set in the world of Winnie-the-Pooh. Perhaps that’s not as far-fetched as you might think, since Pooh and his friends did appear in the Kingdom Hearts series. I can’t say I’ve played any of those games, though, despite the fact that they sound pretty much up my alley. I don’t have a PlayStation, however, and I’m not sure starting with one of the installments for a Nintendo system would be a good idea or not. Not that I have the money now anyway, mind you.
Anyway, getting back to the topic at hand, I thought about the title I’d devised and came up with this rather far-fetched plot: Due to quantum fluctuations in his Extract of Malt, Tigger discovers that he can bounce through time. Pooh, disappointed in the quality of the honey in the area since the mobile phone tower was put up near the Hundred Acre Wood, wants to travel back in time to when the honey was better. Despite the warnings from Eeyore that time travel is too dangerous and they’ll probably end up changing history, Pooh and Tigger go back in time. They overshoot their mark, however, and end up in a time when the world was ruled by Heffalumps. Can a Bear of Very Little Brain figure out how to get back to his own time period in time for a smackerel?
I also considered that Owl’s ancestors should be involved. Come to think of it, Robo planted a forest in the original Chrono Trigger, didn’t he? Maybe he was involved with the creation of the Hundred Acre Wood. Let’s just hope Lavos doesn’t show up in Christopher Robin’s peaceful play world.
