@dankwraith damn i wonder why games would be cheaper than movies (unions). maybe for the same reason cgi is cheaper than everything else in movies (unions)

when i think about "indie" publishers like devolver i can't even name the devs they publish. all the work you do just goes to building their brand recognition instead of yours

what's the incentive to go to bat for you? they don't even pick projects they actually believe in, it's not even their own money, they have investors. they're just throwing shit at the wall until something gives them a 100x ROI and if you're not that, tough shit, and if you are, they'll take all the cultural clout for your creative work anyway

Show thread

99% of game publishing is a complete scam honestly. especially if you've already done most of the creative work up front these morons offer absolutely zero value. they claim to help with marketing or connections but they'll drop you like a bag of dog shit if the project isn't successful a month after release anyway

Show thread

years ago we got offered a contract for samurai gunn 2 that was like "we'll give you a mil up front, but we take 100% of the profit until investment is recouped and afterward it becomes a 70-30 split in our favor. we also will control the IP for 10 years. also if we don't like how development is going we can cancel and you owe us all the money back" like bruh why would i not just fund the game myself with terms like that, you are literally assuming no risk and getting 100% of the reward for no work lol

i dunno it's like. throwaway jokes are fun but that's the landscape for so much of this stuff because it's an easy way to go viral and that's what you have to do to survive. it's not a healthy artistic landscape

when they announced goat simulator 3 i was like. why. who is this for

Show thread

i'm not gonna be a curmudgeon about the trombone game because it is genuinely very funny but it does make me kind of sad that the only kinds of games that seem to ever make any cultural impact are the game equivalent of a practical joke

argentinian stereotypes are Italian ones but with 100% more beef

computer, play archangel by burial. i'm in my feelings

so funny that the NYT ran that article about the iranian protestor posting from an FBI safe house. you don't even have to figure it out these days they just tell you it's a psyop
