Just Another Day is a series of parody campaigns based on FreeSpace and other related Sci-Fi aspects. Just Another Day 1, 2 and 3 feature the unfazeable Alpha 1 and FRED, god of this universe as they fight for truth, justice and the proper way campaigns should be made.

The Just Another Day 2.2 Series takes place after JAD2, when FRED gets cast into another dimension, the method of which will be kept hidden so the campaign isn't totally spoiled! Without FRED, the Just Another Day Reference Bible is up for grabs, and the poor souls who Beta Tested the series want it for themselves.

Story

The Just Another Day 2.2 Series takes place after JAD2, when FRED gets cast into another dimension, the method of which will be kept hidden so the campaign isn't totally spoiled! Without FRED, the Just Another Day Reference Bible is up for grabs, and the poor souls who Beta Tested the series want it for themselves.

Only one girl can save the universe from these suddenly appearing demigods, mysterious shadowy councils and internet in-jokes. And that girl is... 19th century English Computer Programmer Forerunner, Augusta Ada Lovelace! Or some ditz named Holley. Whoever's available.

Missions

  • Mission 1 - Short Introductory Prologue - When the Third Beta Tester wakes up and starts causing trouble, Delta 1 must gently ease it back to sleep.
  • Mission 2a - Beta Tester Attack - The Fourth Beta Tester assaults the FRED Knossos' defense. (Cutscene)
  • Mission 2b - Beta Tester Counterattack - Newly recruited Gamma 1 fights the evil of the Fourth Beta Tester in her first battle.
  • Mission 3a - Operation: Taco-Get - To please her father, Holley goes out to the store to get tacos. What could possibly go wrong?
  • Mission 3b - Forced Feeding - After the Fifth Beta Tester squashed Holley's attempt at fatherly reconciliation, Holley wants revenge!
  • Mission 4 - The Power of Friendship - Delta 1's back and he's stealing Holley's spotlight. Surely killing the Sixth Beta Tester will solve this problem, right?
  • Mission 5a - A Step Forward Into 1st Place - Holley attempts to stay relevant and challenges Delta 1 to a race. The Seventh Beta Tester has other plans.
  • Mission 5b - Fly Like You Want To Win - Holley and Delta 1 must put aside their differences for two minutes so they can defeat the Seventh Beta Tester.
  • Mission 6a - Short Cliffhanger Epilogue - DAMN YOU AXEM! (Cutscene)

Characters

For a full list of characters please see Just Another Day Characters

Gamma 1 (Holley)

The self proclaimed star of the campaign. A hard core, and very impressionable, energenic girl! Nothing gets her down! Unless her father says something that might possibly be construed as "Bad job, Holley." This happens more than you would think.

Delta 1

Dangerously genre-savvy guy who's out to make a name for himself in FreeSpace campaigns. He's a big show off and tries to take the credit for everything at first. Sadly he isn't important to have a name yet, but he's working on it! This campaign may be his big break.

Epsilon 1

Epsilon 1 is a perfectly generic character that says perfectly generic things. Naturally, this creeps Holley out and she thinks he's stalking her. Without a real personality, Holley gives him one: Creepy stalker dude! She also thinks he was grown in a tube and is constantly being regrown. He also has a habit of being cut-

Merv

The commander of the defense force for the FRED Knossos Super Defense Force. He has complete faith in his daughter and will routinely work behind the scenes for her. He also comes up with plans. Good plans too, not those silly Terran Command plans.

The Beta Testers

After FRED forced them to play his awful campaigns, the Beta Testers are out for revenge! But since he's not around anymore, they'll settle with taking over the Just Another Day universe and turning it into their own vision of the perfect campaign.

Notes

This campaign takes place after, Just Another Day 2: Electric Boogaloo. A version of this campaign, compatible with the 3.6.12 mediavps, is released as part of the Just Another Day Collector's Edition. Playing it is not required to understand the campaign. Understanding the campaign is an impossible feat anyway.

FREDder's Notes

I don't have any yet!

Player Comments

Words cannot describe... This is amazingly fun to play and truly a milestone piece of FS art and entertainment. Awesome work, Axem (and Spoon and MjnMixael ^^) ) Made my day. Better than sliced bread. Very highly recommended. -MrTealTwo
