• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Picking up his TV from the repair shop the night of his stay at home date, middle manager PJ Barrett is alarmed to find his set was mixed up with the one belonging to the Conan lookalike leaving the store as he drove up. He's sucked in and transported to the planet Daltere to find the omnipotent Jewel of Light has driven the alien Helmar insane. If PJ wants to make his date, he'll have to stop Helmar from destroying the world.

Tropes used in Altered Destiny include:
  • Artifact of Doom: The Jewel of Light drove Helmar crazy, and it kills PJ if he even touches it.
  • Gravity Is a Harsh Mistress: You'll probably die from falling off ledges more than everything else put together.
  • Guide Dang It: As is to be expected from an early-90's graphic adventure game.
  • Literal Metaphor: When Vindah warns you watch out for natural springs, he means spring-like creatures called Hoppa. When he talks about facing your fear, he means floating blobs called Fears.
  • Meaningful Name: Because of the circumstances involving his transportation, PJ spends the entire game in his silk pajamas.
  • Summon Everyman Hero: Not that they meant to.
