    Love the book! Been reading it all day instead of doing actual work ;)

    Gotta say, even though it might not really be a proper crpg, I kinda miss a mention for Moonstone for the Amiga.

    Congrats on releasing the book and thanks to everyone who contributed to it. :salute:
    Hoping to see a second edition someday when there'll be enough more discoveries of good (and less known) older RPGs as well as enough recent indie releases that deserve to be there. Hopefully that'll happen in a few years.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'll start slowly reading through it and brofisting random posts of contributors whenever I find a great review.

    Thank you Felipe for doing this and finishing the project. You are awesome, just as everyone else who contributed.

    Now, where is that Codex fundraiser for printing this bad boy?

    A product of only the finest autism. Congratulations on finishing it.

    Although, CRPG Book Project is probably not the best name for the finished product?

    How come this isn't on the front page felipepepe? You've posted about RPG of the year 2017 so why not about your book? Anyway, congrats and :salute:

    Great job, felipepepe , and to prove I've been reading it I've spotted a mistake. The figure captions for Bard's Tale and Ultima 4 on pages 73 and 79 regarding random encounters are identical. Fire your editor!

    The book looks amazing!

    I'd really like to get a hard cover printed version of this.. preferably coffee table sized.

    Do you have plans to sell hard cover copies of the book or is it up to those of us who want such items to contact a printing shop on our own?

    Thank you Felipepe. I was waiting for this book to come out to consider gaming history finished. Now, no more games are actually coming out. If they are not in that book, they do not exist.

    felipepepe you are a true bro. :bro:

    Incidentally, if you want to try the HN suggestion of putting the source on github to crowdsource proofreading, and need help, feel free to PM me. Seems like pretty decent way of doing it.

    Since he's right, i don't see the problem. Idiot. I guess getting the info a game is a eroge with pedophile content is too much to ask in a review lol?

    Same thing with horror, comedy or suspense or other 'soft genres' like that really. Only just a biiit more edgy. Or that school shooting simulator and jfk murder thinguie.

    holy fuck do you have a long ignore list

    also quite right, Felipe should list every fetish in eroge games so that we know exactly what to ... avoid, yes, I'm going with that

    Fine by me. Every kind of true metadata is valuable to make informed decisions. Vore is a trash fetish for example. On a world filled with trash and trash people with terrible taste, filters are needed.

    I don't know what kind of pedophile content Rance has since I don't play weeb games, but the review does clearly mention it is an erotic game and that the protagonist abuses women. This guy doesn't want, "oh hey btw this game has rape", he wants "elaboration of just how problematic the content is". And he's perfectly ready to completely dismiss all the recommendations because they don't contain a thesis about "problematic content".
