The background of this game is you have been captured by an evil troll and are now in its lair. If you do not escape you will be eaten.

That's super neat! Sounds like fun. Too bad you can't see yourself. I think I'd be nicer if there was an awesome monster sprite in the circle.

no sprites in this

part of the game is finding out what kind of monster you are.

Sprites after you find out what you are?

"I'm some strange guy that often posts random s*** which might sound racist. Sorry for that but actually I'm not racist." :)
You might want to use that text as it's less weird? ;)

Why is having a black friend shameful? ???

because he is so stupid he can't see

The game sounds like a neat and original concept. I'm sure it will be pretty fun to play :)
Title: Re: Blackspace - Welcome to Hell
Post by: kotu on November 05, 2016, 08:57:41 pm
the backstory is more fun than the game

Re. blackspace i might not end up finishing this one off

The essence behind it is very non-racist but I have to do some quite vague stuff to get there, which requires a lot energy

So I will probably just carry on with Kill Cmnd at the moment, although, don't expect it too just yet, got some weird emotional stuff going on at the moment. But I'm ok

Thats contradictory as, in my opinion, the stuff "is racist' and not "might be racist ". Therefore a far better better disclaimer would be: " I love exercising my freedom of speech, further more, the opinions stated here do not necessarly represent my own.

true but that would only be helpful for the game itself as it doent cover (for example) stuff in IRC ^^

I can't judge if the game is racist or not because I didn't have much time to check it out yet. I hope it gets finished at some point and that you feel better soon, though.
Title: Re: Blackspace - Welcome to Hell
Post by: Dudeman313 on November 07, 2016, 09:02:39 pm
Well, games are supposed to give people a good way to kill time in a fun way. It shouldn't be offensive.

If games were only to kill time, they'd be always a product of uselessness. Yet they aren't. Also, there is no problem with games being offensive, for some that's the fun of it.
Title: Re: Blackspace - Welcome to Hell
Post by: DJ Omnimaga on November 08, 2016, 08:49:29 pm
Yeah I agree. In cases of worries, I just add a disclaimer anyway, and for video games this is why there is the ESRB/PEGI ratings with described potential offensive content.

And most offensive games/humor is intended to make people laugh and doesn't necessarily represent the opinion of the author nor the player, so it's best to take them with a grain of salt and enjoy (or pass on) what they have to offer.
Title: Re: Blackspace - Welcome to Hell
Post by: kotu on November 09, 2016, 01:54:19 pm
Have worked out a way to still make the game, featuring D&D monsters instead. So it is more of a children's game, as its fun to find out the type of monster. Do you guys think it could still have an additional text file, with the alternative texts in?

Reading it back it does seem like it would be perfectly ok for a child to read - would appreciate you feedback DJ

(The following spoiler section contains all 6 monster types CAUTION)

Spoiler: ShowHide

DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER DISCLAIMER

IMPORTANT

READ THIS FIRST

I, the maker of this software program. am not a racist. One of my best
friends is Jewish and (I am ashamed to say this) one of them is also
black. I apologise. :p



The game is actually intended anti-racist and is meant with affection.
Anyway here are the alternative monster definitions.

******** ****    - black *******
*********          - jewish ****
********            - an actual minotaur
***  ********     - a rubbish turk
***********       - evil chinaman
**** **** *****  - human

Hm that is on the fence for me but that might work. What do @Streetwalrus @aeTIos @Ivoah @Juju and @Snektron think? Make sure to make the enemies look as funny as possible so that the game is really taken as satire.

I don't have to even include that text file it's just an option.

In this game is a evil troll who has 5 rooms as part of his kitchen and a room called wall city. You have been captured.

Lol I never had a map like this, but I sure had a lot of paper notes of my calc projects in the past. I still have them somewhere and I posted pictures on Omnimaga years ago. Most of my notes are text, though, such as the chronology of events in game stories, and in some cases you can even spot unused content there (eg the alternate final battle in ROL3 that never got implemented). I also remember drawing my tilemap data on a grid on paper for the overworld maps in one of my games. It helps a lot, although nowadays I just use a computer. :P

Some image hosting services also remove images if too much hotlinking happens. You could probably use Imgur or img.ourl.ca .

On the contrary, file hosting services usually delete files if they don't get enough downloads. Which is weird.

Anyway I played the game and I ended up being a gelatineous cube as the game said :P (EDIT: THis time I am human because I found a few items)

they look exactly as in the pic

they twist their top half and stuff

if item such as an adventurer's arm is caught in the jelly, it gets violently sucked into the jelly

that's why they are dangerous.  8)

are we still talking about gelatineous cubes?

Is that a Dungeons and Dragons reference? Or just some slimes?
