    Yeah, those ligatures are part of the text, but you can turn them off in the options.

    options for ligatures. Options to turn the options menu on so you can turn on options. And players basically reward that shit.

    "I don't like the direction in which your game is going. Please give me a lot of options to turn it into a shadow of a completely different game than you intended it to be, and that you never tested or balanced properly, so I'll have something to bitch about on Urrpeegeekodex 10 years from now"

    Feels like a fantastic leap from hide/show 'font ligatures' to this.

    Because 'hide ligatures' is the tip of the iceberg, not the body.

    can we just have an option to see all the different ending slides there are, I don't really have an interest in the game you're designing there but I fucking love buying games

    People like you should be given options to turn NPC's into signposts, monsters into My Little Ponies and weapons into bananas. Yo dawg, I herd u like Gorillas, so we put some Gorillas in your RPG so you can chimp out while you sperg out.

    Options are good, therefore the more options there are, the gooderer. They should also give you the option to increase walking speed x1000 and turn on God mode. Back in the days you had to look for exploits and glitches to do a speedrun, what a hassle. Those streaming dollars don't just walk in by themselves. And at the RPG Kodex, we fucking love options. They make you feel like you've been playing the game when in fact you've been playing with a combination of things and rules that never even passed QA. Nothing makes for a better reason to rant about a game's lack of coherent vision and retard design than a game in which everything is optional and the designers obviously didn't give fuckall about vision and design by giving people exactly what they want. Options.

    You feel that's worth mentioning in this place?

    I'm in fact not. Games are as shit as we allow them to be by continuing to buy them. Every now and then someone singles out an entire company as a focus for their scorn, and refuses to buy any of their games even if some of them should turn out well. But that's really as far as self constraint on the Kodex goes in this regard. Hell, I'm no different in that regard. Offerings in the genre we love are too rare for that kind of thing.

    But maybe at least stop outright pressuring people during development to make things you don't like optional. That way madness lies.

    You deluded fucks can't see the madness inherent in being allowed to tailor the fucking writing of a game to your liking because you've gone so far down that road you're calling lunacy your home. Muh options, gibs me.

    Ok, next time (there probably won't be a next time, though) we'll tell Obs to specifically remove the options for ligatures and they'll be on by default.

    mebbe people should stop reflexively responding to every feature revealed during development by saying 'I sure hope that's gonna be optional'. I fucking swear, you can predict such a post to be among the first replies in any dev thread.

    ligatures are part of the writing. It's not the same as an option to change font size. They actually spent time on coming up with that shit, probably including fucking proofreading. But hey, who even cares about going in any sensible direction, you can always just turn shit off.
