The game sounds like a neat and original concept. I'm sure it will be pretty fun to play :)

kotu

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

"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? ;)

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.

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.

DJ Omnimaga

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.

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)

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.

kotu

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