    They hate the Japanese devs because the Japanese side of the industry is pretty much on record as seeing their works as more of a product to be enjoyed than an artform to express themselves.
    The problem with video games as an artform comes in at the part where if the core gameplay is boring or frustrating, then no one is gonna play it regardless of the story or the beautiful visuals, something these indie devs really need nailed into their head.

    Usually being great at that particular combination is the result of someone's life being in complete shambles causing them to go on some kind of search for meaning and purpose

    Everyone is shitting on this game and this guy. "SJWs" are shitting on it because it's not progressive enough. Gamers are shitting on it because it's just a shitty game. And everyone is shitting on that poor guy because he's a cunt.

    ...does that main character dude live in the Full House house?

    This game is nothing BUT rip offs. Like, it's obvious the developer thought all of his references were "homages" when in reality he was basically copying everything.

    ...

    E: OMG IT TOTALLY IS! He straight up COPIED the Full House house!

    this guy is a creatively bankrupt piece of shit

    "my game is awesome because it has hints of Earthbound!"

    lolol noooo it has way more than "hints" of Earthbound, in the same way Dan Brown's books have "hints" of other people's works.

    No one should never be surprised when any new RPGs are revealed to be a trainwreck. RPGs are exclusively made by indiefags and genuine losers nowadays because they require no skill to create. They are all "inspired" by their favorite childhood games.

    To compensate for being amateur trash, they all attempt to be quirky, trendy, or outside of the box with mechanics. Look at furry-hell Undertale.

    This is the direction of RPGs, and it won't get any better

    I haven't played Undertale, but I accept that its success was legitimate, albeit a fluke.

    Regardless, yes, most indie RPGs put in a limited amount of effort only because they've been "inspired" by previous RPGs. Like, why bother building a game from scratch when they can let all their "inspiration" do the heavy lifting for them?

    I gave Undertale a chance and got maybe 2 hours in before getting bored with it and quitting. Some people compared it to Mother but it doesn't come close. Just a quirky game that manages to replicate the style but not the soul.

    The indy RPGs I've seen are mostly very bad. They try and hide weak production value with wall after wall of dialog which occurs alongside drawings of characters in different emotional states going in and out of the scene. Uninteresting characters and plot likely written by a single fanboy. I assume the OP game is no different.

    Undertale was successful. Still is, look at Deltarune. But it's a tumblr-furry fanfic of Earthbound that is intentionally different from other RPGs which gives it so much praise. But it's so directionless and devoid. Not to mention it's short as fuck.

    Truthfully I could write a Groyper-esque text wall of absolutely every complaint I have with this game. It doesn't deserve much praise at all, the only exception being its sort of unique attempt at a combat system. But that goes to shit when the game is intended to be played 100% pacifistic anyway.

    These indie creators are blindly led by nostalgia. No more, no less

    I like Neverwinter Nights.RPG's with a DnD type of combat and story centered mechanic is a step in the right direction.Too bad indies only remember the big budget titles that are considered trendy when they come up with this shit because most if not all of them don't have enough skill or hard-work ethic to properly incorporate that in a game that works.
    What do you think?How could he have done it differently or fix this?

    So, while the gameplay isn't anything special, apparently the characters are actually designed to be hipsters who think they're smarter than they actually are. [​IMG]

    The problem is the game sorta wrote them TOO WELL in this regard and as a result they're so insufferable early on, players find themselves hating the characters, Alex himself in particular, and don't want to stick around to see them evolve

    The funny part came in that video above, where it shows how needlessly long and drawn out the writing is.

    Like the elevator scene: "The elevator began to shake, vibrating with motion" It used three words to say the same thing. Holy christ that was bad

    Like I said, they tried too hard to make him unlikable and abysmal early on in the game, it's a hipster's attempt at being vivid and descriptive. Apparently all the other character's call him out on this exact shit constantly

    A pointless attempt when the contrast is non existent when every character is some retard ready to spout a reddit post in your face. That is if your a normal human being who hasn't achieved full social retardation unlike the developer.

    The entire game is some shitty RPG maker game only add on that a hipster reincarnated it in unity(red flag retards) and plagiarized shit like every shitty indie game.

    edit: I hope everyone who bought this shit refunded the game because it isn't worth 20 dollars let alone 5 dollars.
