Because JPEG compression is a miscarriage of a data storage format, while BMP stands alone?

I was really excited to see what this topic title could possibly be in reference to! I am (surprisingly) not all that disappointed by the truth!

Re: I Forced a Bot

Also I added up all the vowels posted by each person so far and divided each total by the poster's number of consonants and the resulting "suspiciousness ratio" shows indisputably that we need to vote Friday.

Re: I Forced a Bot

Like all "I forced a bot" articles, this one is just using that framing story to justify some loose comedic impressions with a veneer of unintelligible AI received grammar. This one's good!

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.

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.

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...

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...
