"I loved you, always.”
going to comment a little on this game: the overseeing voice talks as if it owns you, and defies your free will. if you follow its orders, you are praised, and the worldview becomes sharper and more detailed. if you don’t, you are chastised, and the world becomes more vague and difficult to navigate, but also more colourful and loud. it’s odd, and sort of eerie, but definitely interesting. take it as you will.
This game really unsettles me. It unsttles me that my first choice to obey, and when I played again and disobeyed, I got really emotional really fast. Failure hurt me more the more I disobeyed. It was… interesting to experience.
i’ve always said we are trained to obey more than to think.
holy shit. i reblogged this the first time without playing. then i played in and it is terrifying. i very much like this, but it will give you intense feelings.
What’s the game??
you obey everything the game tells you too, even jumping into barbs and basically killing yourself. if you dont youre chastised and even the scolding is terrifying
So, essentially, it’s a game that illustrates what it’s like to be in an abusive parents or an abusive relationship - and how it affects you emotionally. That is horrific and ingenious - the next time someone negates the affects of emotional abuse, I’ll take them to this game and let them come to their own conclusions.
This game absolutely gets it. The most solid and reliable degradation is a gendered insult. The more you obey and co-operate, the better understanding you seem to have of your word, and things seem easier. But what really gets me is the contradiction. You are not allowed to have the correct answer. Are you a boy or a girl? The answer is no, I will give you the answer. even towards the end, your “praise” is “no, I will give you the answer. You earned this answer, but it is given to you by me.” Disobeying makes the world frightening and confusing and difficult, but beautiful in a world devoid of flavour.
honestly, i dont know why i made this.
i mean i do but
Why couldn’t you have made this BEFORE I started my blog??
I ended up making a purple-pink androgynous clown boy who fights nightmarish creatures with a rapier and his acrobatic sex appeal. His girlfriend is a mythical Christmas devil with a 28 inch tongue and goat legs who enjoys BDSM. Meanwhile, he is stalked by a psychosexual Alice In Wonderland-themed crossdresser who has a psychotic obsession with him. There are also demons living next door, and an anthropomorphic unicorn.
Why couldn’t I have been more original? :( THIS will be my main character from now on!
Okay, let’s see if I’ve covered all the bases…
1. Subject is male, but since males are basically just monsters, I’ll give him a feminine appearance. Only girls are allowed to be quirky.
2. Skin is dark, but not TOO dark, so as not to scare away white people or offend activists.
3. Feminine accessories on a guy… earring, check… pink and purple… check. thick-rimmed glasses, check… wide hips… check.
4. Girls can have spunky hair. But since this is a guy, I’m giving him a more reserved hairdo, like that of a housewife.
5. Hipster attire…. Bellbottom pants, ugly brown shoes, a scarf in July, hipster glasses… Okay.
6. Okay. A “natural” figure is good for a female character. But for guys, you need to make your characters extra noodly and skinny. NEVER make your character even slightly overweight if male. A girl can be chubby, because then she’s “fluffy” and cute. But male characters are not allowed to be fat, unless they’re the “pathetic” character.
Yyyyyyup. I’m ready for tumblr!
