someone on twitter said "want shorter games with worse graphics made by people who are paid more to work less and i'm not kidding" and man do i agree.
the only reason these dev cycles are so grueling is because it makes more money for the executive suite. capitalism babey you love to see it
@dankwraith polished simplicity and “worse graphics” made with love (by ppl who are paid well) universally ages better anyway
@dankwraith We will never get there under capitalism. Hell, I am not even sure you can get there under any labor-centered model that still has money making as a central goal
My problem with that is more simplistic isn't actualy worse. PaRappa the Rapper has outstanding graphics.
Definitely go for paying people more to work less though.
@dankwraith do you know how many actually useful websites and applications we would have on this model?? (the answer is, "enough" and then we would fucking stop)
@dankwraith YES. That sounds amazing.
@dankwraith Giant mood.
@dankwraith graphics bad art design good.
@dankwraith I like it! But maybe also we support more gaming coops (and coops in general). that way the games are still great quality, but without the corporate overlords there is more money to go around to more people who have to slave less of their lives away.
@dankwraith I don't have much to add to this topic that you haven't already heard, but after reading your screen name, I wanted to make absolutely sure that you were aware that the Royal Spanish Academy has acknowledged the verb "cacapostear".
@JordiGH thank you for this excellent information
@dankwraith You changed it!! 💗
De todas las posibilidades... De todas las formas... Teniendo tantos letrados de mierda, la RAE va y dice "cacaposteo"...
En vez de, no sé, como calco, hasta es mejor decir mierdaposteo o bostaposteo...
Pero, los iluminados de la Real Academia Española de la Lengua ni siquiera intentaron usar bostear.
@dankwraith I want libre games, where anyone who wants can contribute (models, sprites, stages, code, etc.) and playing is completely free.
