    Rich in testosterone, which is why GOG rejected it.

    You may want to take a closer look at their submission form to see what exactly gets submitted to GOG.

    The plot thickens.

    https://www.destructoid.com/empire-of-sin-is-a-dream-game-for-john-and-brenda-romero-557811.phtml

    So, a few months after gog rejects Grimoire, they announce a new partnership with Cleve's old arch-nemesis Brenda Brathwaite. Talk about real peculiar timing...

    Surely, this is just a coincidence, right?

    GOG probably accepted her game out of fear of being sued for gender discrimination

    Apart from the Paradox backing, this was never going to be rejected by GOG:



    Still, there's always the lucrative Epic route for Golden Era Games.

    It's strange to think that John Romero used to bang Killcreek.

    When the real herstory of Wizardry will be written, it will be womansplained that Ms Brathwaite was the real designer of the Wizardry games, but thanks to the toxic patriarchy had to be fronted by Woodhead, Greenberg, Roe Adams and Bradley.

    Yeah but what's she looking like nowadays?

    Also wasn't Romero married to some Ukrainian girl he met online once?

    Not bad at all for a woman in her 40s.

    You got to admit, for a person who spent most of the 80's/90's running an alternate sexuality BBS on Sir-Tech servers and mostly getting gangbanged on the weekends while chain-smoking and answering the Sir-Tech helpline, this otherwise mediocre woman has really swindled her way to the top of the fake game developer industry. She's right up there with former working whores like Zoe Quinn and professional grievance collector Anita Sarkeesian. Pretty amazing for a woman with ZERO skills as a developer, programmer, artist, designer or musician.

    It's all smoke and mirrors. There's nothing there. It's like the guy who made a fortune filling up an aquarium with his own piss and sperm and photographing a crucifix floating in it.

    Having John Romero's penis inside you multiple times helps out a lot with getting a job I heard

    It's pretty obvious that it got rejected because of the UI.

    If that were true we'd all be game developers.
