Upon reading the headline, but before reading the article, I had planned reference the original Inherit the Earth. Upon reading the article, I now understand such a reference to be unnecessary.

Any other old Amiga users out there? (For those unfamiliar, the Amiga was a personal computer that debuted in 1985 and is still the best system of all time. OF ALL TIME.)

Anyway, it was years later, but did anyone notice that there was a weird overlap between the inchoate Amiga community and the furry community? I always thought it was weird the number of anthropomorphic sexy animals in animations and logos and such. Either way, I didn't know it was a thing until years later.

I was reading my son a Sonic the Hedgehog comic last night and I couldn't help but think how worked up furries must get over the Sally Acorn character.

Erm, judging by the dearth of pictures of Sally Acorn available in GIS, I'd say more than just furries are getting worked up over the character.

I still love the fury that stems from her hair and fur color changes early on, and later on with her new clothing.

Subby, there are already many, many videogames starring anthropomorphized animal characters. What makes this one so different?

That's what I thought to, "StarFox" is one of my fav anthro based games around. But maybe this is one of those, "made by furries, FOR furries?"

No idea either.

Heres a protip:
Don't ever do GIS for any character of any anthromorphic comic/cartoon. R34 and furries ain't pretty mix.

Furry and amateur furry historian here. :3

Inherit the Earth was one of the first 'Furry' games, yes - even if I don't apply my strict threshold for what is 'Furry' and what is just of 'Furry Interest'. As such, among the older furries (late 20s to 30s, and older) who have been around a while, ItE was one of the few items that was made that could be related to as 'Furry', pointed to as such, and marketed as such.

You do have to remember, that there is an huge overlap between the early Furry Fandom and the computer/internet fandoms of the time (and the scifi/fantasy fandoms as well, until the early 90 and the September that Never Ended, but that's another topic).

I talked to the guy behind ItE just this weekend, in fact, at Further Confusion (3,300 people regged, second largest Furry con in the world), and I was damned excitied about this. Once I get my finances sorted out (Job is screwing me on hours, and I was a vendor that didn't sell all that well at the convention. Did break even before my own personal purchases, though), I'll be tossing money at this.

And yes, not just because it's Furry. Because I am also a gamer and enjoy oldschool adventure games. :3

As an enthusiast of the "old" style adventure games, I am prepared to face the disappointment that this particular project will not be funded.

That was already made, called Dust: an Elysian Tail, and received quite a bit of critical acclaim.

Having grown up playing 90's mascot games, I'm not sure what's the big deal anymore. Even if it IS a furry game, it's been shown they can make good games, regardless of their stigma.

Yep, that's exactly what I was thinking of. Couldn't remember the name. His work would get press in Amiga Power and Amiga Format and such, IIRC.

Man...that brings back memories. I'm old.

Or just posting tired old memes in some effort to stay relevant. Furry hate is over and done with.

...unless they're really farkin' stupid, like the idiots who posted that fsking petition. But that's not hatred of furries, but hatred of idiots.

And by that I mean: why the hell are you spending your time being a "furry historian"? Don't you actually have a life? Your acually spending time researching the history of a bunch of suit-wearing perverts who want to be animals? You could be learning a skill or finding a girl-friend (or boy-friend).
I just don't get it.

That's about all you really needed to say. Why does the rest bother you so much? Kinda like the loudest homophobes are the most likely to be deep in the closet, perhaps you are secretly itching to try on a fursuit?

Mmmmm delicious furry tears

Bengaley Summercat claims to have been a furry since he was a little kid, but was not introduced to the Furry Fandom until the Fall of 1999, when a friend he met at highschool brought him into the Star Fox fandom. Bengaley had already created the name Bengaley based on the character Ben Gali from Thundercats, and simply reused the name as his fursona.

Summercat continued to lurk around the edges of the Furry community until 2003, when he attended the furry Christmas party held at the The Prancing Skiltaire with close friend, Vorenth. He then attended the last Rick's Cafe party, and has continued to show up at the PS parties for the last four years. Since 2003, Bengaley has further involved himself in the local furry community, and has stated a goal to further the cause of Unporn.


Cool hobby, bro.
