It’d be interesting to see games with “stupid choices” where outcomes are not clear at all. Logical convention says players should know how their choices affect the world around them, but I see no reason why we need to lay out everything in front of them.

This "so-ultra-violent" 'Hatred' videogame is doing exactly the same thing other games have done in the past, but for some reason a lot of people react like they just realized evil exists in the world.

So, gamers are offended that a videogame female character says she doesn't trust men (calling her feminist), but they don't care that she said that because she was a rape victim and actually fears men? That's totally OK because... reasons... right?

I began working on this game with the idea of making a "scary horror game" but the more I worked on it the more it became a nice but bittersweet love story between two girls. Logical convention says this was completely wrong... (but was I really wrong?)

I don’t really know when the “rape" idea came up. I do know it took me a while to really decide if that was the path to go, not because I was worried about the event itself but because “rape” has become such a bad word in the gaming industry

So the "female characters" guy is at it again. I could write a 10 paragraph post about the subject, but I'm just going to ask the question and let you answer.

Interest reading. If anything, I do have to question the whole don 't fight back mantra that surrounds most horror games these days. Like how your examples of Resident Evil turn the whole horror simulator into something else because they become about shooting. r n r nSo, for example I ...

Correct me if I 'm wrong, but doesn 't The Yogscast already ask a percentage of the revenue from developers to play their games and make videos about them This sounds like The Yogscast making some sort of invitation to devs saying Hey, help us help you. We can play ...

Well that 's a good question and one I had to deal a lot. According to the story, there 's one character that builds a lot of death traps so a lot of danger comes from the environment. I don 't have any kind of health bar nor sanity meter, ...

Well it was online at some point but it was too NSFW so I took it down. Basically the story is about a man who molested his daughter... I think that upset some people in my country, maybe because they don 't like to see in movies something that actually ...
