so here's the question: how can two separate games exist in the same game? what would be the entry point from one game to the other that would make sense in the game's world?

it's been suggested that maybe Marcus' Adventure is a minigame that Lance plays, and it can be a cool idea, but I want it to be a bit more intimate than that. I want Marcus' Adventure to feel more a part of Shield Cat and not just a fleeing minigame you play once

basically I dont want it to be just like that one part of Celeste where you play the Pico 8 version and go "that's cool" and then never touch it again

but yea this is coming about because I was using Gamemaker's configs to be able to work on the two games simultaneously and then release them separately, but the feature isn't that good, so I can either split them into two projects or join them into one game

it came to me in a flash of inspiration. People have asked me about Lance's "sidekick" character - What if Marcus was Lance's sidekick character? Like Marcus lives in some digital device and you have to plug it into certain things to play an NES stage to advance
