Mmmm, true enough. Something an uninterested aunt gets a kid her sister tells her is "smart", despite him wanting "CallOfDuty17:SuperDuperAdvancedMegaMechaWarfare"

I dunno. I don't want it to be homework - I want it to be simple enough to play without any actual political understanding, but perhaps carry the potential to be easier to play if you know what the views are already.

I wouldn't want anyone to feel they need to consult outside reading in order to "get" the game, but having re-read manuals for games on occasion, and having learned virtually everything there is to learn about the Fallout series over the past few years, I think maybe something positive and entertaining can come out of the risk of causing homework.

Hahaha this is all a terrible idea and I'm going to die in political solitude, :lol:

It's better than dying on the couch with a bag of Cheetos and an orange dick. [B-o]

Sorry Bart, I edited my post while you were writing all that. "Reactite" is neither left or right-wing, it is the "Moderate Authoritarian" position, with neither Communist nor Capitalist-specific slants.


No problem.

You don't like sports? I would have taken you to at least be a football sort of guy.


Team sports have held very little appeal for me over the years. Baseball is something I'm somewhat interested in but American football to me is rife with brutality and to me it's rather gay. I don't mean that as an epithet but simply as the most apt description I can think of.

The men run around in tight pants, slap each other on the butt all the time, they run around naked with each other, and while I can go on I suppose that I see all too many football players and football fans overcompensating with their overt displays of masculinity...sort of like the proverbial redneck with the ridiculously over-the-top pickup truck.

Actual men do not need to run around making gorilla-like displays of aggression to demonstrate their masculinity. People just know a real man when they meet one.

I personally prefer solitary sports like climbing, shooting, kayaking, sailing, skydiving, snorkeling, and outdoor photography. I challenge myself with these sports. I've simply never had the need to defeat or humiliate anyone else in order to feel a sense of accomplishment so the whole American team sports culture has never held any thrall for me.

Team sports anymore are just another business and the notion of 'team loyalty' is a fabrication of the billionaires who own these teams and fatten their wallets by satisfying the need of people to 'belong' to something. To me a sports league is just another big corporation and I have no special feelings for them whatsoever.

You'll also notice that the rise of the importance of team sports in the USA (and Canada) has paralleled the decline of patriotic and nationalist sentiment in our countries. Team loyalty is now a highly profitable substitute for patriotism and this is also evidenced by how many people wear or display team logos versus how many will wear or display a national flag or emblem outside of a sporting event.

So there I am not giving one single shit about corporate sports. [B-o]

Re-evaluated a lot about this game, which has been on-and-off my mind lately.

I'm going to make a shitty clicker/incremental/idle game with this idea instead, for now. Cripple it with ads and pay options. Mobile-focused. A game that should take a long time to truly complete, with a classic "Rebirth" implementation to encourage replay.

Then hopefully fund this main idea (which I'm now planning as a everyone-for-themselves styled multiplayer) off the backs of freemium and ad revenue cancer.

Played "Bitcoin Billionaire" and I can respect how they worked ads and pay options into the game in a way that makes it legitimately a user choice, as well as being a game that can be completed (eventually) without ever paying anything or viewing an ad, if you so choose. I've never viewed so many ads in my life and I grew up on freaking cable, but I chose to see those ads for bonuses and shit. Brilliant. Cancer, but brilliant.

I'll keep you posted.
