I was kind of intending this thread to be a storehouse of replies for

<hurrr but who would work without profit motive???? you ever thought about that commie?

where fans have for one reason or another put in a great deal of time and effort to maintain or recreate digital experiences.

For example, I stumbled on some videos for a fan recreation of TIE fighter which, from the clips of it, looks really neat. It seems like video related is a mod based off of another mod for the million year old X-wing Alliance engine. I need to look further into it and see if it's built off of the original game, or its own standalone deal meant to mimic it.

Then there's also Tamriel Reborn that seems like it isn't just a remake of the original, but actually expands on the original Morrowind, I guess to add back in all of the content that had to be cut. Apparently they've been going at it since 2001.


Then there's DOOM, which has just had an insane amount of work done on it and with it since it was released. It's actually pretty amazing to see what people are capable of doing with it after so long.

In practice, the great motivator to do something without a profit motive is agrarian-like self-subsistence. Say, if you need something and there's no alternative you'll be like: "Ah, fuck this, I'MMA DO IT MYSELF!!" That's why there's so much mods and libre software tools yet so little libre games that aren't clones and reimplementations of other games. Because while you may need some changes to be made to something already existing here and there you won't really feel the need to create something new. That's why there should be some community motivation of some sort. Not necessarily a market but something like game jams or stuff like that. No idea how that would work under communism though.

I didn't realise they also reworked the Far-Eastern Collapse.
If Kerensky fucks up the Manchu's still take over the West, Republicans run off to Transamur and Vladivostok and then either become one of two different flavours of authdem, Ukrops spawn in the north, but can either be SocDem or Banderites who are now properly set to reactionary.
Harbin proper gets to keep some of the south now, Its either led by Gastev who calms down his autism a bit and becomes PopSoc

I have a weird fascination with this franchise, particularly its fans. How do they remain so loyal when there's been maybe one or two good games in the last two decades in a sea of average-to-terrible garbage released year after year? How did Sega manage to take all the wrong lessons away from their colossal fuckups of the mid-late 2000s?

Wouldn't be surprised it's only going to be used for this irrelevant teaser and never makes it to the movie proper.

Imagine them hiring Andy Hunter too lmao. That would almost be a good replacement for Naganuma-san.


It's confirmed. I hope they use the song for the right scene.

please post your favorite indie games and tell us something about them,
any description will do, all are welcome

presenting: The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante

The Life and Suffering of Sir Brante is a narrative-driven RPG that comes to life on the pages of the protagonist's journal. Set in a ruthless world where any form of dissent is mercilessly crushed, the story follows a man who has dared to challenge the existing order. Set out on a lifelong journey and become an individual able to carve out their own destiny… But remember that freedom never comes cheap.

Life in the Great Arknian Empire is harsh and its hardest Lot is yours by the circumstance of birth. You are a commoner, holding no rights and no title. To seize your fate and become the rightful heir to the legacy of the Brante family you will have to come to grips with ossified tradition and prejudice. Embarking on a life-long journey from one's birth until true death, you will have to endure great upheavals, face adversity, and make many difficult choices. Every decision will affect not only the protagonist, his family, and loved ones, but may even topple the foundation of the Empire itself.
Key features

At the turn of time
Every imperial citizen's life is predetermined by their estate. The deities known as the Twin Gods have bestowed this truth to the world, dividing mortals into Lots. The nobles lead and rule over others, while the clergy guides people on the one true path, and the lowborn suffer, toiling away for the glory of the Empire. You may accept your fate without question, but it is also in your power to change the cosmic order that governs all.

I played based communist judge


Damn, that game looks based af… Is there an anarchist route?



Yeah kinda, you can play as a peasant and join the revolt, you end up having to depose the leader though for being evil if you want a better ending


Just like in real life, porkies are backstabbers in the game.

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.


>Ratchet & Clank

good choice


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.
>Safe-ish regions? Check.

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

I'll join the pirates and die in battle for Mother Anarchy.


I dunno man, EVE seems to me to be populated entirely by the worst people in the world.


You join a guild, the guild protects you. Your guild is your bros.

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.

It's funny how people refuse to move to Matrix because of mandatory registration while the IRC and imageboards are still alive and well. Maybe the registration requirement is the tool of monopolization and should be rejected in favor of better moderation practices.


I've yet to succeed in registering an account on any Matrix server. I have no idea why it's so difficult. I'm tempted to set up my own server, but running prosody for XMPP for me and my friends is already a bit of work


Speaking of Doom, the icup thread mentions Doom as a possible venue for inter-board rivalry: https://8chan.moe/icup/res/5.html
surely rendering one of the Alunya 3D models to sprites shouldn't be too hard?

It actually looks like a pretty good game after skimming this video. I hope the combat will be more dangerous and punchy though and that the quest/dialogue aspect of the game which wasn't the focus the vid will be good.
Planned to release for September 6th, I think I'll pirate it on day one, or whenever empress does her magic if it's under Denuvo.
Well I would need a better PC, whenever I thought about upgrading my decade old machine to play releasing AAA titles such as Cyberpunk or Callisto Protocol I ended up not doing it because those games were shit, most of the big games recently were shit actually, hope Starfield breaks the trend.

haha it wasn't good enough to bother keeping it an exclusive I guess

honestly Outer Worlds was better even with everyone being disappointed by it


Honestly, fuck Microsoft, they should die in a fire and Bill Gates should hang himself.

I do not get this shilling for exclusives, it's bourgeois. Every game should be available on every platform. Especially on GNU/Linux and BSD PCs.

You know what? Forget the consoles, the console market is cancer that is killing the PC gaming. Like a parasite, it's feasting on its carcass, enriching the platform holders and empoverishing our wallets.


I mean PC gaming is hardly dying, it's annoying to miss out on some console exclusives sure but we still have by far the best choice of games


It's not only that we get no console exclusives. We also barely get good PC poris either (of bigger-budget games at least). Even if PC gaming isn't dying, the sheer existence of console gaming makes PC gaming worse. There is not enough incentive to make good PC ports. The same way there's not enough incentive to remove Denuvo and third-party launchers as Steam has a very deregulationist policy (despite having a heavy taxation policy, peak neoliberalism) unlike GOG.


>>33507 (me)
The final solution is therefore communism the collapse of the console market.

I always heard that genuine neo-nazi groups were active on Roblox and using it as a method for recruiting and simulating real-world activism, but damn, I didn't know how easy it was going to be to find accounts in Klan robes and fascist accelerationsist these easily.

>that's going to become a thing isn't it. to try and lure kids into become nazis
Here's a screenshot of a group I found before their Twitter account got suspended


It already has. Why else are there those sigma male and vaporwave edits? They look cool and fun so the kids obviously take the bait. "Oh, what's this cool zig-zaggy sun symbol? I want a T-shirt with than one!"


>We must secure a future for the existence of our skibidi children.


Sometimes rate my avatar is filled with nazis lol that put racist christchurch memes or unironic "humans are not equal" spartanist anti-communists and roblox does nothing.
I reported someone unironically named ""NIG14TND88GER"" and his account still is alive. Same thing with church, those games moderations directly allow that and roblox also.
Got harassed and constantly attacked/killed by some racist "watch europa the last battle" players in a dark RP game for forming a communist party as also a muslim person there.

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.
