Who buys all the card from these lovely games? Do people collect them or something? Or is there something you can actually get from them?

Ignatius M. Meen

If you collect all the possible card drops for a game you can turn it into a badge and get points for your Steam level, which yes is mostly only good for increased chance of those random card packs but you'd better believe people will treat it like a high score anyway.

e: You can also increase the level of the badge more than once, possibly infinitely, so if a game has cheap cards, that means cheap badges, even if the reason the cards are cheap is because the game is unplayable.

The max level of a badge is five. A foil badge only has one level. You also generate backgrounds and emoticons from crafting badges, some of which can be valuable depending on the dev's effort.

Someone from Valve was laughing their head off the day they came up with this. It was probably the hats guy.

Yeah, I have awful Anonymous-themed icon (earned from a Beat Hazard badge, randomly) that's worth more than a quarter. Most are poo poo because they're completely unreadable at the size they appear in text or just completely meaningless outside of whatever context generated them. The few I have that are worth anything seem to be partly so just because they're readable smilies of various sorts.

Do you feel it, Zach?
My coffee warned me about it.


If I were an amateur dev bringing my first RPG maker game to Steam via the power of some shady third-party company that generates Greenlight votes I'd just create the most commonly used and edgy set of chat smilies that have nothing to do with the game and watch the cash flow. Or maybe some smart entrepreneur has already done that?

Oh, you mean the guys who put out the same game two times to double up the emotes/backgrounds they could sell?

Yes they are explicitly the exact same files in both installs.

Lmao these people don't give a gently caress anymore. Just create some garbage, literally name it trash, write some random poo poo and throw that dumpster fire on Steam for 2 people to buy it. Who cares.

Uncompromising Trash

How long have you not seen this, you have not experienced for a long time it is. Your hero, behind the group - sperm. You need to survive the killing of bacteria of various weapons, throw bloody tampons, shoot by poo poo and dildo , spit green snot and kill all enemies.

Frankly nasty bosses will not let you breathe quietly, a barrage of filth lead you to insanity.

Survival mode can identify the strongest. You need to kill all the filth. Collect food and buy employee, it will protect you and keep you in your path is not easy - to survive. Stay alive - and only you can continue life on earth.









You're on the planet 'poo poo world' between turds, you're a sperm and you cum at little asses that in turn poo poo in your general direction, also dolphins and pizzas, the face of Jesus Christ is your special attack, roflcopter. Roll in your own piss, turds, vomit and snot.

Welcum to the Razer afterparty.

So what you're saying is it's better in artstyle, but not as good in gameplay. This raises further questions.

The dev is very fond of the Amiga/Genesis era and somewhat esoteric in their spiritualism. It defines all of their works. You should try the sequel if you want the same insanity but a bit more "standard game".

His most recent title, Ohr, was bug nuts.

yeah i thought the Christian stuff was gonna be some bizarre joke or just there for coolness like in Evangelion or Xenogears, but no, it was totally sincere and the dev meant to get their spirituality across with it

also it is way the holy gently caress too hard, art games and bullet hell should probably not mix
