You know, I played slenderman. I didn't find it all that scary.
That does beg the question though; you've probably already been asked this a lot, but what has it been like to have created Slender and for it to suddenly blow up in the way it has? I'm just curious what your view is on all the attention as the person who made the game. It's like, what everyone seems to be talking about lately.
I've been playing a great old game for nostalgia lately called Siege of Avalon. Anyone played it? You can download the first chapter for free and be more... creative if you want to keep playing.
Good lord do I love stories.
Treasure Adventure Game is pretty fun but the solutions to problems and finding things are SO ridiculously specific. Like, forget to push one block over? Dang well sail all over trying to figure out what you did wrong. I got 40% or so, and I heard that once you get past half it gets super good. Is it worth pushing through? I know there are some great guides for it.
Also Swords and Sworcery is a lot of fun so far? It feels restrained on computer though, which is a shame.
You need to try Zineth immediately. It's a psychedelic free-running exploration game. Think Mirror's Edge meets Jet Set Radio meets Tribes and you've got a decent idea of what it's like. It's really quirky and unique and a lot of fun from what I've played so far.
It's a little awkward to play without a 360 controller, and I think it's still unfinished, but it's definitely worth a try.
AAAAAAAAGH GODDAMNIT INTROVERSION I KNOW YOU RELEASED THE CITY GENERATOR AS A TECH DEMO WHERE THE FUCK IS IT!?!?
I have scoured the deepest reaches of Google and every single one of the sites about it have absolutely zero downloads. Where can I find it I've been wanting it since it came out but I just now looked really hard and it is NOWHERE. I know that the tech demo was released, I know for sure but the actual program seems to be impossible to find.
I only wanted to watch the pretty cities appear. And also maybe to perhaps be able to have a program called Subversion on my desktop.
That tech demo was only available through the Humble Introversion Bundle, which I'm afraid ended long ago.
...I could be completely wrong though.
But it's like hunting for the white stag or something I swear.
And TBH, it wasn't that interesting. It didn't let you paint the city centers or anything, it just made a city. It didn't do any interiors, just the basic geometry, and after 10 minutes is like "meh."
Zineth looks awesome!
In the LP I watched because it would slow down this computer incredibly if I downloaded it. But what was that protagonist girl's name??? I see her everywhere on the internet, yet nowhere, and I don't even know what she's FROM.
EDIT: oh, um, i might be confusing her with someone? unamely crash826's current avatar. whoops.
If you love HOMESTUCK, then you must love WEBCOMICS. WEBCOMICS eventually leads to INTERNET. When I say INTERNET, you think of INDIE GAME. INDIE GAME and ARGUMENT CHAMPION are intertwined. Thus, HOMESTUCK has a strong correlation with ARGUMENT CHAMPION.
However, I felt amazing when I managed to connect cup to my enemy's subject so that I could take cafe and smash him upside the head with it. I actually got him an X and a fourth or so into the negatives.
...I could be completely wrong though.
Silly -> Farmer -> Food -> Power -> Potent
"Silly" and "Farmer"? Really?
Bin -> Bucket -> Reply -> Text -> Passage -> Direct
Bucket -> Reply?
And how the hell do you argue against "THIS"? Not that my opponent made any arguments in FAVOR of it either!
Oven -> Drive? WTF?
BOSS LEVEL. BITCH vs. MOREOVER. ROUND FOUR BEGIN, BOTH CONTESTANTS HAVE MADE NO CONCLUSIVE ARGUMENTS SO FAR. WHOOPS.

Yeah I love the idea behind this game but it's kind of strange in execution. Which is funny sometimes but frustrating more often than not. I wonder how the developer made the semantic networks for this game?
Each node only contains references to each other node, and in order to progress it simply looks at a link, and then looks up its semantic entry.
No, I mean, how did he determine which words are linked to which?
Well, it kind of reminds me of an exercise we did in a 100-level communications course... first everyone started with the word “dog” (on the safe assumption that everyone knew what the word means), then associated five words with it, then with those associations... as you can probably guess, pretty much any of the words we got at that stage being the same was pure coincidence.
The point is, according to life experiences, education, the limited selection of words to choose, and even just the fact we did it on the spur of the moment every single one of us had completely different ideas of what to associate with even such an unambiguous concept.
In other words, it was probably made up on the spot, or left at “eh, good enough” at some point.
definitely panic if there’s caviar
He probably had a handful of people do that very exercise.
I still have no idea how "turkey" and "bitch" are related and I made the connection in the game. And still have no idea what "this" relates to.
