Where's Alec when you need him?Blowing the dust off this thread (and I honestly wouldn't be upset if it gets locked at this point) to say that we can all anticipate a NITW 2.0!
I can't wait for another $20 game that preaches the evils of capitalism to me via talking animals.
We all know Benson looks like the offspring of a butterball that fucked a landwhale, but his dev buddy looks like the skinny troon he probably wishes he was.
God. This guy, Wren Shabe (a.k.a. Alex/Xan/Xander Shabe) is a furfag train wreck. Apparently, he ditched his previous partner’s parent’s funeral and went to a furry convention instead of being by his partner’s side during a difficult time. Shortly after the break-up with said partner, he started to transition and identify as a poly troon all the while drawing cringy *~uwu soft positive trans~* furry fetish porn as well as self-pity comics that rival those of Shmorky’s in patheticness. I remember seeing his posts detailing his transition and it just came off as fetishistic more than anything.We all know Benson looks like the offspring of a butterball that fucked a landwhale, but his dev buddy looks like the skinny troon he probably wishes he was.
I wouldn't doubt the game only works for certain people given it's demographic and setting.Not surprised this has a community watch thread. Generally nice fandom, but lots of furries and lots of people prone to exceptionalism.
I briefly explored a discord related to the game and got yelled at by a mod for encouraging voting because it “enabled capitalism”. There were some people passing around Marxist documents as well. However for the most part it’s just a lot of tumblr-like hugboxing.
I’ve listened to a couple podcast interviews with Scott Benson. He seems critical of certain aspects capitalism, but not decidedly against it. The extremist interpretations come from the players.
I think the ability to enjoy this game depends on your background and where you grew up. Imo it’s pretty good. Thinking about buying it for a friend.
Didn't one of the dev worked on I'm O.K - a murder simulator? Is weird seeing how much society change in almost 15 years.New When playing this I had no idea who the devs are and what their agenda is. I thought the game was supposed to be about stupid teenagers/young adults doing stupid teenager things which is why they tended to be preachy, sexually confused "anarchy good- cop bad, let's get wasted in the woods" type of characters that will eventually grow out of it
