Hi I do art mostly but also do games.

Please read my comic, Patchwork and Lace. It's about a Lovecraftian Disney Princess dark mage and her superpowered undead partner hunting monsters and being bad at communication.

What do guinea pigs dream about? Probably not this, but just roll with it.

Wrong aspects in the game industry, and possible solutions

The main obstacle here is getting the cash. Most game companies are funded by an outside entity that wants results, in the form of profit.

It is very easy to say "there should be a company that makes good stuff and doesn't do bad stuff." It is very difficult to actually follow through.

Also merch is something you offer after you get big. Nobody wants to buy merch for a thing they don't know unless they are me buying grab bags at conventions

I think what you are describing is crowdfunded indie games.

Wrong aspects in the game industry, and possible solutions

I'm just gonna say that a lot of these are things that the people on an extremely small site dedicated to a super niche, unpopular style of gaming have zero control over or potential to influence. Ultimately most of these problems are just the result of large game publishers being focused solely on how to make a shitload of money, and that's as far away from what's going on here as Mortal Kombat is from Style Savvy.*

Also there's not really any strong evidence that any single entertainment form can strongly influence individuals in ways that said individuals weren't already inclined.** It's more likely that video game violence and machismo are an outgrowth of a culture that prizes violence and machismo, not the other way around.

I am v. on board with the idea of making more inclusive and nonviolent games because more variety = more good. Playing combat games can be extremely fun. Playing nonviolent and friendly games can also be extremely fun. If we have a lot of different games, then we have a lot of different ways to have fun, which IMO is the ideal situation.

*Both of which own.

**There is some room for debate in very specific terms- certain types of FPS games are similar enough to army training that there might be a cause for concern re: lowering the inhibition against shooting, but there'd be a need for a lot more data.

Tell me what anime to watch and why

Don't watch anime. It's for nerds.

Are gamepage descriptions edited by the staff?

Further evidence that the site is sentient and actively fucking with us, IMO

Maker Score not updating

Maybe the site just doesn't like some people.

Have you considered you might just be dead?

Most people. Just remember that I'm older than time itself. Or at least it feels that way.


It's just because last year lasted a whole-ass decade.
