Blizzard had a survival game in the works for more than 6 years and just gutted the entire team. Anything that isn't an established IP is out, but even successful teams have been hit pretty badly by the layoffs. Hope everyone likes endless sequels and remasters!

To develop LoL, TFT, LoR, Valorant, Convergence, Song of Nunu, The Mageseeker, Hextech Mayhem, Ruined King, the two big ones still in development, the fighting game and the MMO, on top of the hit Netflix show Arcane, I would say 5500 people is way too little.

>The Swedish gaming company Embracer Group AB is canceling a video game in the beloved Deus Ex series after two years of development and will lay off a number of employees as part of an ongoing initiative to cut costs, according to people familiar with the moves.
>The canceled Deus Ex project, which had not yet been announced, was slated to enter production later this year, said the people, speaking anonymously because they are not authorized to talk to the press.
>The sci-fi Deus Ex series has been critically acclaimed and sold more than 14 million units worldwide. It was acquired by Embracer in 2022.

Hmmmm… Interesting question… It's really hard to tell since I want an advanced-enough level of magic/tech without living in They Live, 1984, The Matrix, The Terminator or Starship Troopers. Maybe Phantasy Star or Ratchet & Clank? Shantae's Sequin Land is fine too but its level of magitech is roughly comparable to a mix of ancient Persian and modern-day technology (it has the Internet and anime apparently). Classic Mega Man I'm not so sure, with all those rogue robots running around. But I'll leave it as an option. Definitely not Mega Man X, it's just MGS all over again.

Imagine dying from getting drowned by Perfect Chaos in Sonic Adventure.

Ironically I didn't even play it, it's just the only safe sci-fi setting I could remember. Which isn't saying much. Jak & Daxter seems to be closer to Mad Max which is cool if you're a badass and sucks if you're a civillian.

Wait, there's EVE Online! That's it!
>Sci-fi? Check.
>Wormholes? Check.
>Multiple factions and guilds? Check.

The only drawback is that it's very overwhelming, you have to have a cheatsheet of all the stuff.

Let's say i have a couple pet projects, one of which involves paying people involved in said projects:

what would be a good way for us to raise funds for this which in itself also becomes an investment so we can cooncentrate in working full time in said project?

Also if any of you are interested just drop some of what ya'll know or want to learn and i'll invite ya'll to a chatroom thing; part of the project involves educating aspiring workforce that can help in the project(s) as opposed to the current game development industry which is made up entirely by college clubs.

Kinda surprised roblox is still going. You'd think something open source would've overtaken it. Like, those kids aren't tech illiterate, they're a community about making games; coding fairly large Lua programs, making 3D assets, ect…
Every time I hear about Roblox it's either a controversy of platform mismanagement or someone made a cool game in it like Become Fumo or Skibidi Tower Defense.

I guess one way to do it would be to do a Fedi instance about JanusXR rooms? Maybe fork JXR to add a more intuitive avatar system like what VRChat, NeosVR, and I don't remember what that other one was where you could move the sun around in the default lobby.

The Fallout series definitely exists in a state of contradiction.

The story cannot continue to add value/be fun by simply signposting 50s conservatism's nostalgia for a non-functional self-destructive system. It must propose a better system and display the enemies of that improvement, their motives and tactics to subvert progress.

I think it would be interesting to see a USA based but Euro/Russia/China focused Fallout where their investment in renewables has permitted faster re-devlopment desired by all but at a cost of the people's sovereign right to be gangers and slavers. It could be 'domestic' east/west USA as well but the 'outsider' function is necessary. While more developed in tech and breadth than the NCR to provide a point of tension, some boxer rebellion type religious loonies still Wuxia it up in their mountains but these cannot support the kind of population and prosperity as the main bodies of society.

The principal tension should be between an NCR that actively loathes the idea of solar panel installation(etc) and 'chinese'/ 'yankee' aide regardless of if Euros or Yankees install it. Seeing a scramble by the liberal NCR to reinvigorate racism into law just to preserve it's hierarchy among it's puppet states would be great to see. World Tensions don't have to have the magic red/green/blue button to shut off the last nuke Mass Effect ending. There should be the option of actual overthrow of NCR leadership, a reform leader willing to invest and resolve the Class tensions with real substantive concessions unacceptable to the NCR royalty, and the fuck it we're just Chinese slaves burbling about the good old days like the Enclave bad ending. I can't believe we lost the war twice due to the same greed of the same minority of 'wealthy' people unwilling to share their wealth with their own people. War never changes.

Little red book fragments with actual Mao quotes would be great.
>"no investigation, no right to speak!" should be the first quote you find.

Side quests to 'Green Beret' East coast/Chinese right wing loonies into becoming BinLadens on NCR's dime would also be cool for the reactionary path.

Re-upping without transparency.

In 1998 the, 'everybody I don't like is a race' crowd was still pushing the whole, "Whites can't live here cuz Imma bigot' laws.

Covenants, like red-lining were laws to prevent the sale of real estate to 'certain people' in perpetuity even long after the death of the original owner. They have largely been ruled to be bigoted bullshit.

>What's wrong with feminism?
Gender essentialism and anti-individualism mostly. Feminism always views a woman as a female, not as a person. Feminist theories can turn into a dogmatic, zealotted worldview where people are reduced to simple stereotypes that do not apply to all men and women.

Basically, feminism shouldn't be your foundational belief. It rather should be a mere side-efect of your worldview like individualism say. If every individual deserves freedom then excluding women is hypocrisy. Same with Marxism actually: if you don't hold, say, science as more important than Marxism then how can Marxism remain scientific? That is the question.

Got any recommendations for RPG games heavy on NPC interactions? Im fine even if that interaction is mostly violent, as long as it is contextualized (i.e. faction A sends you to take out faction B), rather than just crawling thought dungeons beating throngs of mooks. You know, something like Bloodlines, Fallout 2, Planescape, that sort of vibe.
