Cram it in me, baby!
So someone goes full “Make games, Fight Capitalism” And then they defend the prices that they charge for because they’re a small team. That is the most ringing defense of capitalism that I can think of.
It’s almost like you need a return on the investment of resources that you put into something. And to do that, you need to rationally price it so that you can return that investment yet find a market willing to pay that price despite the content of that game specifically railing against this system.
In fact... it’s almost as if capitalism isn’t a system but the aggregate actions of people freely engaged in the trade of goods in order to maximize profit on said investments...
It's even funnier when you see the system actually working. Sex pest David Hill started his own company to self-publish his own r/LateStageCapitalism: the RPG, the hardback selling for $69 (nice). He actually wrote that on the book's spine. Now he's looking into buying a house and getting out of California.
I guess my point is that losers need SocJus/anti-capitalism as a way to make all of their losses someone else's fault. You can't win because the deck is stacked against you because racism/misogyny/transphobia/capitalism.
