Which leads me to add one Remark: That the Number of purely white People in the World is proportionably very small. All Africa is black or tawny. Asia chiefly tawny. America (exclusive of the new Comers) wholly so. And in Europe, the Spaniards, Italians, French, Russians and Swedes, are generally of what we call a swarthy Complexion; as are the Germans also, the Saxons only excepted, who with the English, make the principal Body of White People on the Face of the Earth.
Alright, how fucking pale were the english and the saxons supposed to be ? I understand that the sun is a luxury on that island, but come on, they weren't all dracula!

Not having blacks and troons in your game should be the norm, not a special feature to be celebrated.
Yes, but also I wouldn't have any issue with " straigh up n-words" and "striaight up tr*annies" if they'd place them accordingly. Like, if the tranny in Cyberpunk wasn't that bartender, but instead one of the dolls from Clouds, I wouldn't even have batted an eye.
Transexual people? In MY transhumanist cyberpunk dystopia??? NO FUCKING WAY

See, in a high tech cyberpunk transhumanist world trannies would be obsolete because body modification would have reached the point where you can just have a female clone of yourself made and then download your mind into its brain.

Current year mutilation surgeries, or troons who keep their male body yet wear a dress and demand to be called "ma'am" would be completely outdated and no longer exist.

Amazing how you put everything that didn't come from Britain as "communism".

I've been browsing this thread since the beginning and I just now realized that the name of the game has never been "Penitent".

Yeah, but he was talking about american education, not English education. Do not assume old English people had the same shitty education as current americans have.

Those are still pictures. Concessions have to be made when it comes to things that need to be animated.
Assuming that's true, don't animate them then.
Considering the degree of "animation" in the videos, it doesn't seem like much work to have better drawn images move at the joints.

There's an entire part of the final mission that especifically tells you that you won't really be you by downloading your memories to your wipe-clean brain, even if it doesn't really matter by that point.

Do you really think Sawyer might lose his job?

Can you say it again? Slowly.

It's gamepass fodder, it doesn't need to be profitable.

I'm sure if he lose his job, one of the nice prostitutes on Twitter he cares so much about will take him in.

Music feels super annoying.

Gradually changing opacity of Dialogue font color from 0.0 to 1 is very annoying.

The font style is annoying to read.

Colors look good.

The art style is so bad that it takes time to get used to.

Dialog options that cover the character are annoying.



I bet 90% of Codexer will play this game because there are no black people in it.
