    Game should also display NPCs' name above them when you hold tab and/or hover mouse at them, tie that ability to a skill, Encyclopedia maybe.

    It's been done before:


    Though it's fair to assume it wasn't a commercial success. :M

    The dev already gave you a linear 30 hour game tops when they promised 90 hours, what makes you think they won't go full blown into the drama novel crowd, which is women, and make a twilight video game novel, they already have the money to pay ign

    I mean, in that same interview they say they’d have to give you a choice to play as a male protagonist, too, because anything else would be commercial suicide.

    I mean, it's not like Disco Elysium where you play a middle-aged late stage alcoholic who screwed his life in a drunken stupor is very mainstream either.

    I think we had around 350 000 installs, although its a free game, so that pretty much nullifies the data. :D That said, animating pregnant walk cycles is a boat load of fun, so in that sense it was worth it!

    This has to be the single most retarded thing said in the thread so far, and this is a 78+ Codex thread.

    To be fair, that could describe the protagonist in maybe 90% of detective movies. It’s not noir unless you’re following an aging late stage alcoholic with serious girl trouble.

    I can’t think of a pregnant protagonist in a story like this other than Frances McDormand in Fargo, and that was an ensemble cast!

    Literally the rules determine the game, basketball is the same game played outdoors or indoors if all the rules that govern it are the same

    I’ve already given you all the arguments an intelligent person needs to shut the fuck up and admit he’s wrong. Instead you keep repeating the same strawman nonsense that only an absolute fucking braindead autistic travesty of a human would make. The only thing left is the ignore button. Buh bye, dumbfuck!

    You haven't given an argument yet

    If the rules are the same it doesn't matter if the character is a virtual figurine or a figurine on a table in your home

    For real, can you shut the fuck up? I've always been a big proponent of not ignoring anyone but you're so fucking stupid it's putting my convictions to the test. The difference with games and tabletop RPGs is that if you choose to go down a path or do something that wasn't explicitly programmed into the game, even if it's within the ruleset, you won't be able to. That's the difference between a video game and a tabletop. Now, will you stop leeching off the Starbucks wifi and go back to picking cans from the garbage bin like the rest of the homeless?

    If the rules are the same between both settings then it's the same game, one you pretend something is happening visually, in the other something actually happens visually, if the system and math functions the same then it's the same

    It's a game based on numbers, the dm is the lead dev and sets up the encounters, if the rules are the same then you could have the same experience in a virtual game

    Holy shit, this is why you were fucking homeless! Something doesn't actually happen visually in the game if it isn't programmed into it. Here's an example. There are plenty of buildings in various RPGs that you can't enter because the game doesn't give you an option too, while if you were in a tabletop RPG, you could enter into whatever building you like assuming you pass the necessary checks to get in if the door is locked, or whatever. The question is not about whether or not it's possible to do the same things in a RPG as in a tabletop, it's a matter of programming all the possible things that can be done, which is impossible. Hence, the very real and relevant difference.

    The more we engage with this troll alt the more we encourage it. Can we just stop fucking responding to it?
