EventCGs01 explora

Explora is an exclusive girl available in a Limited Time Event (by collecting 14 Tokens over 14 days or by paying 200 diamonds, with a 15 diamond discount for each token you collected) or for 2 dollars in the store. She is the forty-third girl in the game's main tab, but she is not part of the main story and you do not need to unlock any other girls to obtain her.

You met Explora after picking up one of her fliers at a tech convention getting her hopes up that some one still remembers her despite how "inconvenient" she was.

Personality[]

Explora is very self conscious in the early stages. Going on about how laggy she is or asking if you’re looking for someone else. But as you get closer she seems to embrace her flaws and becomes much happier.

Dialogue List[]

First Meeting[]

  1. You're attending F5, where tomorrow's hottest tech is showcased for the world to see. While moving through the crowd, you hear a voice rising over the regular chatter. "The end is nigh! The day of judgement is upon us! Will anyone remember the forgotten? Anyone? ANYONE?"
  2. You decide to take a flyer, partially as a show of support but mostly in the hopes that she'll stop yelling.
  3. Desperation - CRUSHED!
  4. "Oh, happy day! My hero, my shining beacon of hope! Thank you, thank you, THANK you! As long as we're together, the final days of my life have meaning!" You're not quite sure what you've gotten yourself into, but hey, she's cute!

Adversary[]

  • All by myself... Don't wanna be all by myself... Anymore... Huh? Wait, you're still here? This never happens! Let's chat! A/S/L?

Sorry[]

  • Hey, are you on ISeekYou? ExclAIM? LiveIM? No? How am I supposed to instant message you?
  • I'm trying to come up with a clever Away message. What do you think of this one? ~~DoN't CrY b/c ItS oVeR, *SMILE* b/c iT hApPeNeD~~
  • You can excel at anything you set your mind to! I really believe that!
  • You're not just here to ask about my friend, are you?
  • Some people collect stamps, and some people collect coins. Me? I collect bookmarks! Do you have any you're not using?
  • I'm really looking forward to getting to know you! And no, I won't sell your data or let anyone see your private info... You are super safe with me, I think! I promise!
  • I choose to keep going. For me. Not for anyone else.
  • I know I'm old, and I crash all the time, and nobody likes me. But that won't stop me from living my life to the absolute fullest

Poke[]

  • EEEEK! Oh, you spooked me! Sometimes sudden movements give me flashbacks to the Browser Wars.

Gift[]

  • Aww. I love peer-to-peer sharing.

Upgrade to Nuisance[]

  1. This is actually perfect. I've got a great big bucket list of things I want to do before I'm gone, and you're gonna help me get everything checked off!
  2. That includes learning to make mosaic art, going on a safari, performing in an opera, and visiting Albuquerque! Let's go!

Nuisance[]

  • Eeeee! A new user! We are gonna have so much fun.

Sorry[]

  • (All adversary lines)
  • How are your Knee-Oh-Pets doing? Judging by your face, maybe it's time to check on them? Oh! And then we can play some Run Escape together!
  • I tried to reinvent myself once. Thought maybe I could be a little cooler, a little edgier. Then people started calling me a "try-hard" - which, it turns out, is not generally intended as a compliment.

Poke[]

  • High five! Oh - Errm... I thought that's what you were going for. Sorry.

Gift[]

  • Aww. I love peer-to-peer sharing.

Upgrade to Frenemy[]

  1. I think I'm addicted to RAM sandwiches. One byte, and I just - OM NOM NOM!
  2. Oops... I lost CTRL and ate them all. Should we send a report about it?

Frenemy[]

  • Thanks for not blocking my pop-up! Sorry I can't do anything about the forty-something others.

Sorry[]

  • (All Nuisance lines)
  • (Various adversary lines)
  • Oh no. I think I'm about to crash. Hard. Maybe I had too much java? Oh gosh. I hope we weren't working on anything importa--

Poke[]

  • High five! Oh - Errm... I thought that's what you were going for. Sorry.

Gift[]

  • Aww. I love peer-to-peer sharing.

Upgrade to Acquaintance[]

  1. Hey! I know we just met, and this is a bit crazy, but... I like you. So e-mail me, maybe?
  2. Excellent! I'll be checking my inbox every ten minutes until I hear from you! I sure wouldn't want your letter to get lost among all the spam and chain letters I receive.

Acquaintance[]

  • LOL! Did you see that one GIF with the dancing baby? Too cute!

Talk[]

  • (All Nuisance lines)
  • (All Frenemy lines)
  • I love a good shopping spree! But lately I've been a bit low on cache, so I've limited myself to window shopping and casual browsing only.
  • My favorite color is #0078d7. I wonder what yours is? Wait, don't tell me! I'll ask my friend Jeeves to help me figure it out!

Poke[]

  • High five! Oh - Errm... I thought that's what you were going for. Sorry.
  • Eep! Haha! You call that a tickle attack? I'll show you a tickle attack! Get pwn'd, n00b! LOL!

Gift[]

  • Aww. I love peer-to-peer sharing.

Upgrade to Friendzone[]

  1. I've been thinking a lot about foxes. The red ones, specifically, because they look like little fluffy ball of fire! And I can't help but wonder, what does a fire-fox say?
  2. Maybe it's like, "Ring-bing-bing-bing-bingeringeding!" Or maybe, "Wa-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-bow?" I don't know, what are your thoughts on this?

Friendzone[]

  • Let's burn a CD this weekend! If we queue up all our songs on Friday, they might be downloaded by Saturday. Then we can spend Sunday making a cool CD label while we're waiting for the disc to burn! Eee!

Talk[]

  • (All frenemy lines)
  • (All acquaintance lines)
  • I made a webpage dedicated to our friendship! It has a sparkly background, dancing hamster gifs, AND it auto-plays MIDI files! Click here to sign the guestbook - look, you'll be the first one!
  • Get your DVD rentals delivered! You could win a new desktop computer just by filling out this survey! Oh, I'm so sorry - these random ideas just keep popping up in my head.
  • I just found out Mio likes computer games! I wonder if she's tried out that neat helicopter one yet? I know, I'll e-mail her the URL, and then later we can compare our best distances!

Poke[]

  • High five! Oh - Errm... I thought that's what you were going for. Sorry.
  • Eep! Haha! You call that a tickle attack? I'll show you a tickle attack! Get pwn'd, n00b! LOL!

Awkward Besties[]

  • You're so Endearing, so Entertaining, and so Easy on the Eyes! You're Easily the most Excellent person Ever! I could just... Eeee!

Flirt[]

  • (All freindzone lines)
  • I like to think I'm pretty user-friendly. But it helps to have such a friendly user!
  • So... Um... I made you a slideshow! It has 69 slides, all about why you're amazing. You better not fall asleep, haha! But first... Loading... Loading... Loading...
  • I think I'm crushing on you. Eep, did I say that out loud? I meant - um - crashing! I'm crashing on you! No wait, that's worse - I meant crushing! Oh gosh, I'm so embarrassed. Where's the task manager so I can end what's happening right now?
  • What if this is all just a simulation? What if nobody is actually anything more than a few lines of code? What if... I'm not the only one? Oh wow, sorry - I think I'm a bit on edge today after torrenting that hot new sci-fi show!
  • AcHOOO! Oh no! Do you think I have the millennium bug? I know no one talks about it anymore, but still! Should I see a doctor?
  • I just got this e-mail that said if I didn't forward it, I'd be cursed and a ghost would come murder me at midnight... But that if I DID forward it, my crush would kiss me within 24 hours! That's silly, right? Hahaha! So silly! Anyway, you might wanna check your inbox 'cause I sent you something :3

Poke[]

  2. Wait, don't do it right this second!!! It has to be a surprise! Phew... But it is good to know you want it, too :)

Crush[]

  • Does this dress make my constant state of existential crisis look obvious?

Flirt[]

  • (All Awkward besties lines)
  • How do I maintain a positive outlook? By monitoring my attitude 365 days a year! It might sound silly on the surface, but if I could send just one note to the world, it would say "uninstall negativity!" Teehee! Isn't that so clever? Hey, why aren't you laughing?
  • Brrr. I'm freezing over here. No, not like THAT - I'm actually really cold. Would you mind if I just sort of... Cuddled into you a bit? For warmth?

Flirt[]

  • (All Crush lines)
  • Would you like me better if I was a fiery redhead? I know, I know, I shouldn't compare myself to other girls... It's just kinda hard when everyone else is doing it too!
  • I saved all my favorite photos of us onto a floppy disk for safekeeping. Look, I even have this special protective case for it! *Sigh* I love technology.
  • I try so hard to be friendly and nice, but everyone seems so annoyed with me all the time! Not you, though. You like me for who I am - bugs and all. Right?
  • I'm bored of Solitaire. What do you say we try out a two-player game? Oooh like online pool! I found one where we can talk in the chatroom WHILE WE PLAY!
  • Hey. Are you a computer typing game? Because you're just my... Type. Okay, I know that wasn't great, but it was all I could come up with on the spot!

Special Gifts quotes (Pre-Lover)

  • (Apple) Why do people say "an apple a day keeps the doctor away" like it's a good thing? I dunno about you, but if I were to get a virus or something I definitely wouldn't want my doctor (of all people!) avoiding me!
  • (Magnet) Maybe try CTRL+ALT+DEL?

Upgrade to Lover[]

  • (I can do this. I'm not nervous, I can totally do this.) *Ahem* Hello! I would like to ask you something important. Could I... Umm... Ahh. Sorry, let me restart. Might you - by chance - be open to making me, um... Your default browser?

  • I'd like to be alone with you. Maybe we could meet up in a private chatroom later?

  • Sleeping Beauty taught me to be humble. Cinderella taught me to be kind. But most importantly, Snow White taught me NEVER to trust an apple. Do with that info what you will.
  • I've had trust issues in the past. But with you, I feel safe letting my firewalls down.
  • You're hotter than the bottom of my laptop! Actually... I'm pretty worried about my laptop. Do you think it's overheating?
  • Are you an inbox? Because every message you send me is super Hot Mail! I'm gonna spam you with kisses now, k? :-*

  • Ooo, that's nice. Press any key to continue, please.

  • ROFL : ROFL : LOL : (this creates a helicopter that is not here for sake of space.)

  • You treat me better than anyone ever has. I... I don't deserve you! *Sob*

  • I LOVE IT SO MUCH! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH! WHY AM I SHOUTING? OH, I'M STUCK IN CAPS LOCK MODE. WEIRD. SORRY!
  • [School Uniform] I went to school online! That's right, you're looking at a graduate of the Peppermint House of Accredited Knowledge Enchantment, also known as PHAKE! Wait, that sounds like... Hang on a sec. I think I need to go look at the fine print on my diploma.

  • [Holiday Outfit] This is my way of putting a positive spin on those "Winter Blues." Remember, even the darkest clouds on the coldest days have silver linings - and tons of storage! Am I right?
  • [Animated Pose] Classic mode! And you didn't even have to use the Way-Back-When Machine!

Date[]

  • Thank you for a wonderful night. I'll cherish this memory forever, assuming I have enough disk space.
  • Sorry I missed the movie! I got stuck in line waiting for popcorn. Twice. I guess I just have a thing for kernels!
  • Today was pure bliss! Those cookies you gave me were scrumptious, and the fresh air really shifted me into a better mood. But the best part of all was you!
  • I can finally cross "visit the ocean" off my bucket list! But now I want to add "visit the ocean again" to my bucket list...

Sex Scene[]

  1. Explora-chan takes off her clothes. She isn't shy. After all, the internet is for porn- she knows what to do. She's touching herself, already glistening with sweat and desire. "Press the enter key," she pleads. You do. She orgasms. It's the fastest she's ever done anything.
  2. Later on, she relaxes beside you, smiling. "I could live in this one moment forever and ever. You've made all my dreams come true, and I couldn't ask for more. Except, maybe...For you to do it again.

Dialogue about Ayeka[]

  • I keep hearing that I should watch out for "fishing" schemes? I've never been fishing! Should I put it on my bucket list?
  • Hey... Random question buuut have I been messing up your sleep patterns? Ayeka told me blue light is bad for that, and I just... I don't have a dark mode! I'm sorry!
  • Would you mind helping me check for spyware? I just have this bad feeling lately that someone's watching me.
  • Ayeka? Now there's a girl who knows her way around the dark web. *Shudder*
  • I get a bad feeling around Ayeka. I bet you anything she's a domain squatter!
  • Someone left me an apple pie! It's a sweet gesture, but... apples are like my least favorite fruit. "Poison apple" is a surprisingly popular search term, you know. I just can't bring myself to byte into one.
  • Grr... Someone's been making unkind memes about me again. Silly cyberbully so-and-so...

  • Explora's release date of April 20th is 3 days after Microsoft discontinued Internet Explorer.
  • Explora's birthday, August 16th, is a direct reference to the release date of Internet Explorer- August 16th, 1995. Additionally, her being 27 is the age of the browser itself at the time of her release. [1995 + 27 = 2022]

  • She has a unique set of gifts with the same prices as the original
    • Rose is replaced with a CD
    • Donut is replaced with Java (the coffee not the code)
    • Fruit basket is replaced with an Apple (this gives -795 affection and plays a special line)
    • Book is replaced with Crypto (an unnamed form of crypto currency)
    • Earrings are replaced with a magnet (this gives -12,273 Affection and plays a special line, this is because magnets destroy CRT TVs and even somehow erase all of the data from HDD Hard Drives)
    • Drink is replaced with Pizza
    • Cute Puppy is replaced with RAM
  • Starting at acquaintance, she says her favorite color is #0078d7, which is the same blue as her dress.

  • The field in the background of Explora's Friendship photo is a reference to Bliss, the default computer wallpaper of Windows XP.
  • In the Girls list, Explora's portrait will sometimes appear to be buffering.
  • When upgrading to Nuisance, she says she would like to "make mosaic art", "go on a safari" and "perform in an opera" before she dies. These are references to two popular web browsers, Safari and Opera, as well as Mosaic - one of the earliest internet browsers.
  • In her line in Adversary, "All by myself... Don't wanna be all by myself... Anymore... Huh? Wait, you're still here? This never happens! Let's chat! A/S/L?" it's actually a reference from the Eric Carmen's song with the same title.
  • After upgrading to Aquaintance, her line that says "LOL! Did you see that one GIF with the dancing baby? Too cute!" is most likely a reference to the "Dancing Baby" meme that became popular in 1996.
  • When upgrading to Friendzone, she says "And I can't help but wonder, what does a fire-fox say?". This is a double reference to both the Firefox browser and the Ylvis meme-song "What Does The Fox Say?" that exploded in popularity around 2013.
  • The line she says when given a gift from the Friendzone, "I can haz gift? Woot! K thx bai! (...)" is a reference to the "I Can Has Cheezburger?" meme from 2007.
