Lol.  Look at all of the people on Steam who voted the game down.  I doubt any of them have even played a single tournament in the Depression Quest e-Sports scene.
 
2014-08-19 10:29:43 AM  
Manic and/or Paranoid Quest would have been a lot more entertaining.

And really, that's the single most important word in the world of game design: Entertaining.

This is it? This got a greenlight? There wasn't anything else with, I dunno, discussion in it? Really slow day today?

It is a horrible console port.

Apparently you people's don't know about the current hubbub over this game. Just google Zoe Quinn.

Sandvich is loose cannon: Apparently you people's don't know about the current hubbub over this game. Just google Zoe Quinn.


According to her ex-boyfriend (and the tons of e-mails, texts, and messages he saved as proof), Zoe slept with several people behind his back (while constantly trying to guilt him into not sleeping with other girls), lied about it, lied about it some more, and even made up two people to support her lies. Also, one of those people was her boss, who is already married, and she freaked out over losing her job when he threatened to expose her. And another one of those men had been reviewing and pushing her game in the press.

Oh, and she told him not to use protection when he slept with her, even when she was banging 5 other men without protection. Even better, she milked Robin William's death to promote her game, even after she said she wouldn't do it. And the diarrhea frosting on the sh*t cake - she tried to blame all this on "harassment by 4chan", and got her White Knights to try to stifle the whole expose.

Ok, did. Still going with slow news day here.

1) Woman develops computer game. Not really newsworthy for last decade or more.
2) Woman cheats on boyfriend. Not newsworthy (even if true, I haven't bothered to dig around to see what the evidence was, or whether it is something she confessed to doing - not that is absolute proof anyway given people admit to things they haven't really done all the time).
3) Games developer accused of sleeping with games reviewer. Barely newsworthy given how many reviews most games now get, it is unlikely to be a particularly effective route to success.

Am I missing something that makes this so important to discuss?

I liked the game. Not fun, but it's not really supposed to be. Don't really care about other shenanigans the reviews mention, which make a convincing argument to ban misogyny and unrelated bullshiat in Steam user reviews.
 
2014-08-19 11:37:35 AM  
Doesn't look like much of a game. I was hoping for something closer to a playable version of the Hyperbole and Half series about depression.

Your logical fallacy is...


The problem isn't that she cheated on her boyfriend (deplorable), slept with people to get a leg up (also deplorable, but common), and engaged in risky sexual behavior, putting mulitple people at risk (deplorable, and all common), capitalized on someone else's suicide (really deplorable) it's that as soon as all of this came out, she pulled the "OMG, persecution!" card.

People don't hate her and her game because she's a woman, they hate her because she's human garbage.   They hate her game because human garbage shouldn't benefit from their own garbageness.

I still am not entirely sure what that is exactly. All I know is I played the game when it was in web version, liked it, teared up at some later parts, and did it again with the Steam version.

I played it a while back. It actually made me angry, because it so perfectly showed what depression can be like.

It basically made me relive the past few years of trying to help someone with depression. It's not fun because it's not supposed to be. But for anyone wondering what it's like to go though depression, play this game.
 
2014-08-19 12:32:45 PM  
Zoe Quinn has now almost single-handedly proved every farktard's negative stereotype of women in gaming.

And that doesn't matter. Shouldn't all the anger be directed at the corruption in the gaming press like Kotaku? How many other dev or game companies have traded favours (financial etc.) for positive press?

ya know i don't really care about this subject because it doesn't affect me in any conceivable way, but when you've got companies exploiting game consumers out-the-ass, ceo's running AAA development into the ground, or ya know... developers of beloved games being arrested for child pornography - one person's personal escapades when making a low-budget game in a sea of low-budget games in an ocean of a tech-bubble doesn't strike me as ya know... earth shatteringly important on a scale of "this shiat is wack!"

That was almost an excellent game. I wish that someone would get ahold of the rights to it, clean it up a little bit, and maybe even release a toolkit for modders. Maybe release it as a "director's cut".

Two points:

1. I have no idea who Zoe Quinn is, but if the utterly unhinged response this thread has generated is any indication, I should probably check her game out.

2. I'd love to know how many comments have been deleted from this thread under the new posting rules.
