Re: Game musings and news

In interactive fiction news, the massive, 80+ author eldritch horror exquisite corpse tribute game Cragne Manor is finally out today. There's some really amazing, hilarious, and creepy stuff in here; I'm really proud of what my fellow authors came up with. (I also contributed to this project.) If yo...

Re: Cali-Forn-I-A is a few burgers short of a barbecue

Goddamn, this is a nightmare scenario. Is there a region on this husk of a planet that we can't make completely unlivable through our corrupt systems of power? I'm so sorry you've had this inflicted on you, Friday.

Thanks for pointing out Ralsei's outfit's resemblance to the boat person; I knew it was familiar, but I just couldn't place it.

Re: Undertale

Toby posted some thoughts on Chapter 1 to answer a bunch of anticipated questions. Most important takeaways are that the game has effectively 0% completion for Chapters 2-X and thus will not likely be available any time soon, that this isn't really a prequel or sequel so much as it is a new story t...

Re: Undertale

Read the timestamp of this post. You have less than 24 hours from that timestamp. For context, the Undertale twitter account started acting up yesterday and advised everyone to come back in 24 hours, which now has culminated into a series of tweets which ultimately linked to the site above. The imp...

Re: Indies, Itch & Insider Art

If y'all weren't previously aware of Bennett Foddy's work (both as designer and advocate), let me apologize right now for my failure to inform you about it. But you probably already recognize him as the dev behind stuff like QWOP and Getting Over It. Thanks for linking that, mharr.

I know somebody over on Select Button mentioned an Outer Heaven broadcast at one point. I was startled to see how large a shadow it casts.

Re: A Brave Familiar World; Let's Play Alpha Centauri!

Just wanted to mention that SMAC is one of those games I've always had enough interest in to be curious about, but not enough to ever track down and play myself. I jumped on the Civ train with the expansions to V, so Alpha Centauri was only ever invoked as "that superior game from the Olden Day...

Re: A Brief History of Brontoforumus

I can attest that posting on the forums without also participating in irc.esper.net always felt a bit like watching a movie when one of the audio jacks is unplugged; it's just off enough that you know you're not getting the full experience. I could see how compounding that sensation through unfamili...

Re: Hey [%target] Whatcha Playin'?

Apparently I bought Tacoma during some Steam Summer Sale or other, and since I really liked Gone Home best out of all walking sims I've played, I was pretty excited to finally play this one now that I have a laptop capable of running it. The context this time is that you're a contractor who's been h...

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

Looking back, I think it being our first game in a while, the innocents would have benefited from a Seer. But in a small game like this, I feel Seers are a gamble. With so few players, they have a good chance of just steamrolling the game. What do you guys think? I definitely agree the innocent pla...

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

There were 2 wolves and 5 total players. They need both of them to pile on and end the day. If hng is a wolf, they can't do that, because he's already voting. They needed an innocent to vote for an innocent. That's why what I said was true: If the game didn't instantly end with hng voting; it meant...

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

I had too much fun with this game, y'all. On night one, beatbandito nominated we kill kayma largely because there was no reason to and it couldn't be easily traced back to us. After everybody had had a chance to respond to Friday's challenge on day two, I sent this PM to beatbandito & Lottel: Ta...

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

I have just spent way too much time reading and rereading the thread to make sure I'm not overlooking anything, but I just keep coming back to this: Part 2 there was "also it would be stupid to kill Kayma directly after voting for Kayma." (Oh, but then I'm playing 4D chess to set that up a...

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

Hngkong still hasn't posted, but we're not getting anywhere just staring at each other. I was tempted to float a vote, wait for a wolf to pile on, and then immediately change my vote to that person, but this method only works if my first vote is actually for an innocent player--plus, the wolves coul...

Re: WEREWOLF 101 (PT)

Grath was the first person to put a vote on LaserBeing on Day 2 and never moved that vote after it was placed. It just feels like he's saying "I'm gonna post and stay active but I'm not gonna vote too much to minimize how threatening I seem", but I don't fucking know anymore, because I tho...
