Aside 47: I Pity the Fool

Yes, yes, I think you all realised that I am not, in fact, making a cooperative multiplayer action game with social media integration.

The actual plans for my game will be revealed in due course. I think it will come as no surprise to reveal now, though, that they are 100% single-player always-offline.

But was this joke better or worse than Emo Henrik?

  1. I’m with you and SeedinAethyr, last year was wonderful with the screenshots, that was a truly commendable effort šŸ™‚ This year maintained the excellent satirical tone but did not have the added materials needed to get from 8/10 to 10/10 šŸ™‚


  2. Last year’s had a lot more effort into making it seem real. I really believed it that year until I read the comments.
    This year I was actually ready (not only ready, waiting) for it. Problem was, it didn’t turn out very convincingly at all. I remember reading your Starcraft II post about how you hated how it was always online, and when you stated “always online” I was convinced it wasn’t real. (I was actually convinced it wasn’t real by re-checking the date after reading the first sentence, but the piece of text in your post that convinced me was the always online part.)


    • I’ve always been known to follow the money, and the money is always-online… Oh well. I got a few people that don’t pay quite so much attention to my blog. ;D


  3. Hmm… better then Emo Henrik. (This time I was smart.)

    Nay, just kidding. It was worse because you said it’d be permanent online. (Cue dramatic shudder.)


    • I did put a bit more effort into props for Emo Henrik, though. I was going to do some mock-ups of Facebook posts wailing for likes and shares, but then I left it a bit too late. :$


And you tell me...
