Why does this happen

Luke Walker
Luke Walker

An excellent game series with a perfect mixture of good gameplay, plot and characters
Everything going smoothly, new games in the series are being released
Suddenly main (only) developer gets dumped by his GF
Turns 100% emo
Spends 5 years whining about not having a gf and not developing new games
Turns SJW and starts blaming all the word's problems on the evil men
After 5 years decides to reboot the game so it's about love, feelings and soulmates
Removes all combat because it's too violent and represents toxic masculinity
Gives up on the reboot because nobody wants to play it
Literally gets brain cancer
Only posts about contemplating suicide nowadays
why does this happen. Why do good things have pathetic ends.

Oh fuck me, Pseudolowolf is a pathetic creature if I've ever seen one.
Don't forget about his many attempt to make dating sites and advertising them with games, purely for the purpose of finding a chick to fuck.

Why do so many people who have been online a while go full socjus, anyway?

Robert Flores

Internet people are in large part complete betas.
First it was whiteknigthing in hope to get pussy, and then when it was not enough, it was going full sjw.
Definitely applies to Pseudo, who literally only gone SJW to increase his chances of finding a slut to suck his dick.

You mean "internet celebrities" or just people in general?
As far as "celebrities" go, it's probably pandering to their audience. As for why there are so many SJWs online, well, it's far easier to find an echo chamber hugbox online than in real life. We should all know something about it.

Dev makes an amazing Active Time Battle RPG
Robot motif
amazingly complex character designs that fit the characters play styles
Decent if at time somewhat predictable plot
11/10 soundtrack
Dark themes without being edgy
manages to work in some jokes without it ruining the mood
gave game away for free
game has a previous entry that is also good but less polished
Dev considered making a sequel to the game
dev instead makes a game about "animatronics and security cameras" with jumpscares
Game is beloved by furfags and children
loads of merchandise and sales
Game gets 5 entries and a book deal
We just can't have nice things.
Dev is alt least doing something new it would seem

honestly I'm fine with that one, he made a massive assload of money. There wasn't really a way he could've seen it taking off as big as it did, and I'm not gonna fault the guy for capitalizing off of it.
It sucks, yeah, but it's better than say undertale which you knew from the word go was gonna have a massive amount of retardation due to hype.

Honestly, if he isn't going to do next chapters to Mardek, then somebody can just steal setting.
Miasmon and Beast Signer was good too.

There certainly was an attempt

On the note of the redhead old guy:
Has anybody here who knows of Mardek played the Governance de Magi neverwinter mod? It's basically like Mardek beta, with roughly the same plot, but some plot/setting alterations.
The redhead guy is taken directly from there.

Agreed.
Too bad Miasmon never left early beta and Beast Signer will be in alpha forever.

The first incarnation of Mardek's storyline was just a module for Neverwinter Nights 1.
neverwintervault.org/project/nwn1/module/governance-de-magi
It had the same general plot as Chapter 2, but with some details changed and a slightly different conclusion. Also, different implications for the main character.
The main character lives in Goznor
He is, however, name-able. He's also an orphan.
You grew up with Rohoph
However, Rohoph's not an alien - rather, he's a human wizard who raised you
One day you must go on some simple mission to the town of Canonia
You are accompanied by your friend Emela
You are not a part of royal guard or anything alike. Deugan, as well as other members of the guard, do not exist
On your way to Canonia you pass by Lake Qur, where you meet a distressed girl named Elwyen
The girl is a Siren and asks you to lift some curse by defeating the Lake Hag
She is an actual siren, it's not just the name of her class. But she says that she likes humans, and is not into all that 'luring people to their death with a song' thing. The curse did not turn her parents into stone, but rather made her invisible during the day.
You dive into the lake, defeat some underwater undead, find and kill the Lake Hag. This lifts the curse.
Lake hag is actually an old woman thing with seaweed for hair. Emela moves to Goznor where she starts a shop.
In Canonia, you are given a quest to venture into the Cobold Forest to find a missing Shaman. Her disappearance has caused all sorts of misery
You also recruit a black mercenary Zach and meet a cocky Paladin Vehrn who declares he can save the town first.
As you go through the forest, you find Vehrn injured and save him. You also meet a team of adventurers who think you're here to steal their glory and loot.
You find the shaman, who says she has been given great power by her mysterious master. You kill her, you report back to Canonia, get your reward, head back to Goznor.
You find it swarmed with Zombies, raised by the evil necromancer Moric. He set it all up as a part of an elaborate revenge scheme against Rohoph
Rohoph and Moric used to work together as a part of a wizard guild.
Moric is also just a wizard, and not an alien.
Here's where the plots diverge a bit more:
As you kill Moric, you spring a trap that sends you to his Gnoll-run prison in Frozen Wastes
Rohoph has also been imprisoned there - you break out then rescue him.
You find Moric has turned himself into a Lich. You kill him, ending the final quest.
Rohoph reveals to you that you are basically The Chosen One, actually being half-celestial, and that's why he took care of you.
All the other wizards have turned evil and want to use for world domination
TO BE CONTINUED

As for differences in lore and side plots:
YALORT and the rest of Fighunter Pantheon are not a thing yet. Vehrn is a paladin of Torm.
Everything is standard sword and sorcery fantasy, no Sci-Fi elements.
There is no mention of elemental crystals. Elements in general are not a thing. There is no temple under Lake Qur and no hint at Emela's secret identity.
Most of the secondary characters (that have not been listed in the story above) are not present.
Meraeador does actually exist (here called "Meredoc") and has has already constructed his first Golem. Said golem has gone on a rampage and needed to be trapped in the sewers. There is a side quest to defeat him.
There is a wizard living in Goznor by the name of Tuldur. He offers people rewards for passing his Challenge. Said challenge boils down to being trapped in his tower and fending off fire bugs.
Cambria does not exist.
There is a pirate ship docked in Canonia with one pirate merchant in it. That's all.
Both Goznor and Canonia have some sidequests where you defeat random bandits.

He did something that eventually escalated into a big fucking deal, got rich off of it, and then became to hate it and it's fanbase.

Mark Hamill hates his fanbase? Tell me more, i wasn't aware.

Because it was one of most popular flash games.When Flash and Internet was still good.
Was it really? It's certainly one of the best flash games out there, but it never had the level of popularity of Pandemic 2 or Shift or Submachine.
Even within the RPG genre it was overshadowed by Sonny or Epic Battle Fantasy - both inferior games, in my opinion.

Whatever happened to Yden? It was a metric timewaster(instead of using 0-60, used 0-100 scale), but a good caveman godsim that could've been improved.

The game was never finished, but a nearly-complete version was available on his private invite-only website and eventually leaked.
The only thing really missing from it is Snakes, which were supposed to be the main antagonists, as far as I understand. I'm not sure if they were never implemented at all, or just somehow disabled in this version of the game. There seems to be a lot of code pertaining to snakes.
Anyway, Pseudolonewolf was going to release the game as it was, but then for whatever reason changed his mind, took put it back in development, changed the name, and then never officially released it at all.

People anonymous image boards are NOT the majority internet. We are a tiny little oasis of free speech where avatarfags and tripfags are ridiculed. Everywhere else is different. Attention whoring doesn't even begin to describe how they behave, they're avatarfagging tripfags 100% of the time all day every day talking to other 100% avatarfagging tripfags. They put links in their signatures and admire high post counts and post pictures of their faces.

These creatures are not human.

The seconds counter was out of whack because it used metric time, but didn't scale over the actual seconds to the metric standard. So an actual minute in-game would be 1 minute and 40 seconds IRL.

Lincoln Brown

Pretty sure no-one's denying the fact that the art was shit and full of literal same face, and that the writing was cringe galore full of fedora tipping & m'ladying. Doesn't change the fact that the game was fun as fuck.

Yes user, congratulations, you have discovered the secret behind the truth behind the conspiracy.
People judge things based on the budget, creative staff and pricepoint put on it.
If one man makes a game with okay graphics, decent music and bearable plot, then says "this was my passion project, I want nothing else but for people to enjoy it" then it may get more admiration than a game with 60 full-time coders, 30 artists and a staff of voice actors behind it, who want no less than 69.99€ + multiplayer subscription.
That's also why people go into Assassin's creed threads and shit on the graphics. Because at their budget and with full staff they should have done better.

Mason Williams
Mason Williams

Drop into the drawthread?

full of fedora tipping & m'ladying
Hey, I'm denying that! It didn't get full of m'ladying until the reboots. The originals were just full of fedora tipping.
Ironically, the reboots also got rid of the fedora tipping almost completely, since the author has since "found his spirituality" during his neverending quest to prove that men are evil and women are divine (and that's why they should suck his dick).

A lot of creators try to find some higher purpose because they get depressed from feeling that their fiction is worthless. I feel that I'm not feeding or healing people with my skill of entertaining people and I get hit hard by it as others point this out to me.

To solve this, they either try to get a skill helpful for the real world or latch onto a political movement that claims to change the world. I'm doing the former since I'm learning to code, while others latch faithfully to popular political movements.

A lot of creators try to find some higher purpose because they get depressed from feeling that their fiction is worthless.

Try to make something timeless that sticks with people? That's literally the appeal of creating fiction, you can make something that lives beyond you. You can also contribute to culture and tradition with your career and leave a legacy that gets remembered, whereas the average wageslave gets zilch upon rotting in the Earth.

they either try to get a skill helpful for the real world or latch onto a political movement that claims to change the world.

This is the dumbest thing ever because it dooms your work to be dated whenever the latest political fad is dropped like a hot potato. That's counterproductive to achieving a potential immortality of sorts through your work.

How many Academy Award winners that are picked purely to virtue signal can you name off the top of your head? Exactly.

Those are heart pupils, not eyes. Learn the difference between your visual cues of lust.

Porn is only deserved of girls that you would actually want to bed with.
Bullshit.
Every character deserves to have porn, as stated by the International Universal Code of Conduct, paragraph 34.
Plus, I would let Elwyen fuck me.

Those are heart pupils, not eyes. Learn the difference between your visual cues of lust.
Post heart eyes (employed in eastern-style artwork) for educational purposes.
If heart eyes are exclusive to west, then one can assume they are both regional variants of the same thing.

Are heart irises considered distinct from heart pupils/eyes?
What's the difference in the emotions conveyed by heart pupils/irises/eyes?

Jordan Foster
Jordan Foster

Actually, to think of it, a heart iris is the most absurd of those concepts.
The outer contours of your entire eye change based on your emotions, and the same happens to your pupil.
Meanwhile, you iris always has the same shape and size.
How common I the idea of heart irises, even?
Also: In artstyles where a character has no distinguishable pupil and iris, bug just a solid color emotive circle, how should you call this thing?

Charles Myers
Charles Myers

Clearly we need more data and analysis. Generally speaking:
eyes
Generally for comedy purposes and regular love.
pupils
Almost always lewd, much like the ones in speech bubbles.
irises
Insufficient data. I'll guess mostly lewd, but with exceptions.

Ayden Edwards

Heart eye conjecture #1:
The size of eyes appearing in female's eyes is proportional to the genuine love and affection she feels for the observed, and inversely proportional to sexual arousal.

All of it is a symptom of the cancer. His girlfriend dumping him because of his erratic behaviour, the SJW bullshit, the general insanity. It can take many years before it gets bad enough for someone to go to a doctor. This can happen with many types of cancer. It can start in one place and then spread to the brain later.

You travel one of three roads when you come to embrace the internet
Betacuckdom, where you do nothing but chase pussy you will never attain
<this includes "tfw no gf" faggots.
sjwism, where you blame everyone else for your inability to get laid
The path of the Wizard, where you learn to live without women, to master yourself and enjoy your hobbyist pursuits.

You know what's interesting? Learning to accept stuff as normal.
I vividly remember a time not so long ago when I thought to myself "heart eyes are so stupid in porn. They just make me feel uncomfortable. Ahegaos are ridiculous! Nobody really makes faces like that! Completely unrealistic, breaks my suspension of disbelief right away!"
And now I love both. Heart pupils are the hottest, give me the strongest boners.
A well placed ahegao always enhances the experience.

Matthew Scott

Just stopped in to tell you that simply because you changed your mind from "Man, stupid shit is stupid" to "Man, stupid shit is great" doesn't mean that's some kind of natural progression. I once enjoyed the stupid face but now I hate it with a passion. Heart pupils are also, coincidentally, an irritating meme.

Jaxson Powell
Jaxson Powell

It's an interesting learning process. Obviously heart pupils and ahegaos are not hot "by nature", but instead I just learned how to interpret them the way author intended.

it would be an interesting comment if you had mentioned some specific, potentially relatable experience or thought process that changed your mind, but all you've really said is "i didn't like this thing but now i do"

They are in the sense that H-manga works on exaggeration and strong visuals. Basically, they're a visual cue but blatant compared to standard "happy sex" cuddling and kissing and so on, what you'd expect to see.

Moderation. I agree they can be a turn-off if too common or ridiculous, like the ones in Teaching Feeling. Thank god that lets you turn them off.
