I spent 5 years of my childhood dealing with cancer and still deal with the side effects. Why would I play this?
>>
Dying to play this.

I hope this isn't another Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. Namely, an extremely pretentious, award-baiting yet incredibly mediocre work that is immune to criticism because it covers sensitive subject matter.
>>
>>323975069
The creator is a really humble guy who's making this from personal experience. It's a love letter to his son about what they went through as a family.

The dev isn't up his own ass and trying to be pretentious so there's that at least. Sure, the game may end up feeling that way because of the subject matter and shit but it won't be deliberate.
>>
>>323974784
This is for people who haven't had a cancer experience to play so that they can say they know how cancer feels

isn't this about a 4 year old with cancer? That's pretty sad, but isn't it sadder get cancer at say 16 or mid 20's? A 4 year old hasn't even experienced anything to really remember.

It's clearly another non-game walking simulator, BUT I believe the subject matter is tasteful enough that it's a worthwhile project. It's not pseudofeminist identity politics propaganda, but a heartfelt parent-child tale that's using the medium of games as a method to increase emotional engagement.

Yes, that guy is the dev. Also, he supports GG and is a hardcore conservative Christfag, so there's nothing to attack other than the distastefulness of selling a game about your son's death and not giving any of the proceeds to charity or cancer research. SJW's don't know what to do with themselves because it's not a typical feminist/LGBT indie walking sim, has a heavy handed religious message, yet they are tripping over themselves trying to defend it from literally nothing in order to not look like hypocrites. It's hysterical.

Even if smoking didn't actually lower your longevity, there is absolutely no sane reason to do it. If you think all the bullshit you're inhaling only hits when you've reached 69, you're a fool. It seriously reduces the quality of your life no matter what early age you inevitably painfully die. For example, everyone who smokes will inevitably suffer from nicotine withdrawal for most of the day, which leads to considerable feelings of discomfort and anxiety. That safe, secure, cozy feeling you get when you finally light your cigarette after four torturous hours without one? That's how non-smokers feel literally all the time.

>tfw I've lost 3 family members to cancer

I'm not offended over this game because that's retarded but like hell am I ever gonna play it. The entire thing reeks of trying to cash in on people's feelings and hiding behind "muh art" when people call out how shit of an idea it is.

It's literally the exact opposite of Hatred - just as crass and everything wrong with games, but on the other end of the spectrum.

Sounds like this game is pure cancer

Cancer treatment is absurdly expensive and can put people in debt easily.
The only reason he's making keeping the revenues from this is so he can earn some money back on the ridiculous amount he invested in it. He might not even profit from it.
I don't like the style this game is in but I'm kind of glad it exists. Nobody asked for it to exist and there was no demand for it. There is no pandering to any group in it. He just made it because of how he felt.
I think more games should be like that.

But if you don't turn on all the difficulty options on, you're a bitch who can't play Dark Souls. You need to turn on smoking, drinking, and drugs all on. Also need to raise the "Number of Blacks" slider to max. That's how you play the real man's way.

>That's how non-smokers feel literally all the time.

Except it's not for a lot of people, which is one of the main reasons people get into smoking or drinking on the level that it's a genuine addiction. People who already suffer from anxiety, depression, stress issues, they look for vices that make them feel better - then these vices turn into problems as you explained. Yes it's stupid, but so are drugs and they're incredibly popular with the retarded populace.

It's incredibly personal. I don't even see how it could appeal to anyone else.
People who have had personal experiences with cancer won't want to play it because they know how bad cancer is. People who haven't won't want to because they've heard how bad cancer is.

Wrong. He Kickstarted the game and got almost 3 times the amount he asked for and needed to make the game. His expenses were all covered, all the money he gets from selling this is pure profit right into his pocket. He's not in debt. He also had a fucking documentary made about the making of the game and death of his son. It's all greed, pure and simple. He's not even sad about his son's death, he's happy because "Joel is now with Jesus in heaven and that's worth celebrating".

It's a way to explain your feelings without looking another person you don't know very well in the eye and say "So my four year old died of cancer".

It's just never been as easy as it is now to make a "video game" since the tools are powerful enough non-technical artists can make the whole thing.
I'd rather we settle on another classification for things like this because I agree they're not games, but I'm not autistic enough to really care and argue about it. Someday when there's a lot more of them maybe people will decide on something.

It's so weird that everyone is against the setting, and not one of you seems to care at all about the gameplay.

None of you have mentioned a thing about the merits of the gameplay (and lets be honest, that's because none of you have played it). Everyone just assumes that because it's about "a kid who has cancer" the gameplay can't possibly be entertaining or rewarding. It's clear that a character having cancer is the sticking point for everyone.

Why are you guys so against having different stories being told in games? It's not like other games are going to stop telling the other same tired stories.

He's making a profit so I can criticize as much as I want

If you wanna memorialize your dead son, that's great and I respect that, but once you put your shit onto a major publisher and try to get shekels for it expect to get criticized if it's shit

You can already tell from the screenshots this shit game belongs on second life, not Steam

No one with any sense hates the fact shit like this exists. He made it as much for to deal with his grief as he did to extend understanding to others.

This is literally no different from personal film projects.

Why is ANYONE angry about this in any way? Are you scared it's a trend in the industry? Yes, pretentious non-games are a trend in the industry, a whopping tenth of a percent of the worth of the industry I would bet. "THINGS I'M NOT INTERESTED IN EXIST!" is not a defensible angle. Plenty of actual-game games are still being made, EDF 4.1 just came out in English.

RPG with a semi hidden time limit. Semi hidden because there is no obvious countdown, but the cancer spread is reflected in the world environment. The nigger it gets, the deader the world appears to be and enemies become tougher as well. The ancient evil that awakens is cancer and it is revealed at the end that you can't defeat it, only seal it with an ancient spell and hope it doesn't come back. Ends in a cliffhanger in a cutscene after the credits in case I make enough money to warrant a sequel

Nobody has a problem with them existing. They have a problem with the media portraying them as:

1. Games
2. Better than any other type of video game

And as such 'demand more' of them. Meaning, whoa, we get more of them. Meaning video games change and the flood of these ones in to get 'praise' means more people attack those which aren't doing stuff like this.

It's the same reason action movies are lambasted and don't get Oscar Nominations, but 'artsy' stuff does.

But that's the thing. Video games are not 'big' enough to go "nah, fuck you, market decides" like film can do. There isn't enough 'place' for artsy and non-artsy at the moment, because the competition for your dollar is much greater. It is also more of a problem, a video game costs $50-$60. How much does a film ticket cost? Exactly.

In the end, games are 'weak' enough to be affected by this critism that change COULD happen.

So, next to nothing? He'd do better making a cool video game that is an allegory for cancer. A game that comes to mind is MASSIVE CHALICE (or MASSIVE CASHGRAB as I call it). You're constantly fighting invading forces and can only tackle one invaded area a turn, meaning you lose other areas. Your job is to essentially keep yourself from losing until the McGuffin works and the bad guys go away.

That's a perfect representation of cancer. Thus, if a game was liek that, a game which is good (not saying MC is good) on it's own, then it'd make MORE.

You don't understand basic economics.

Products are only in competition with each other if they are substitutes, which means they serve the same need, fulfill the same niche. If they are competing for the same consumers, then the success of one product means the relative failure of the others. However, this is only if they fill the same niche.

A fart-sniffing game with the message of "death is sad" doesn't fill the same niche as say, the souls series. It only competes with other low budget, low cost, indie artsy games. Hell, it barely even competes with games like Pony Game because it brings in new consumers who don't normally play games, but want to have feels. That's expanding the consumer base, and it's good for everyone.

The video game industry makes a whole lot more money than film ticket sales for years now.

It's bullshit. They aren't even trying to make a statement or push an idea, they don't have a problem with the game but they just decided that they didn't want to play it. You'd never see Rowan Atkinson being interviewed on TV saying "The original star wars trilogy was pretty good, but I didn't like the prequels so I'm going to pass on episode VIII." It's pointless filler shit in every way, they don't even bother making it into clickbait.
>>
>>323988427
You know, this has me thinking, why is it that a indie that usually no one would ever talk about or know about suddenly thrust out there via these huge gaming journalism sites RIGHT before their release? No one would be making this much of a deal if it wasn't so propagated, it's just fishy.

I don't think it should have been sold as a game. Sold as an animated film on a shit budget would've done better. It would still be glorified by pretentious "journalists" but atleast as a 4 hour interactive film it wouldn't be lying to you. But then it would have to compete with all the other films about people with cancer. And nothing tops 50/50

So really all it has to fall back on is that it was a creative outlet for the creator, and there is 100% nothing wrong with it. And I'm sure that's all he wants to do. Take his experience and put it into a form to help other people and deliver a meaningful narrative. However the moment someone is "raising awareness" they can fuck on off. Raise Awareness is keyword for "look at me".

Because we've been doing that with every artistic medium we've had. Stories to deal with depression and loss of innocence, movies attempting to make sense of justice in an unjust world, paintings depicting through expressive colors and shapes the frustrations of the artist towards a particular subject, emotional music about the way people can't understand one another. Literally every medium has countless examples, and they help people cope with this ultimately basic and cruel existence. Games are no different and shouldn't be any different.

Why do people think any of this is "challenging the perception of the medium"?

It's really not, these kind of heartpulling art games are in plenty, difference this time being its based on the tragedy of the creator, but that's not a first either. "Callenging the perception of the medium" would be like, Virtual Reality at this point. That's something new, that's breaking new ground.

I don't even have a problem with games like these, but stop acting like you are doing something groundbreaking when you're really not.

I'm agreeing with you mang. I smoked half a pack of death sticks a day, bought myself a vape and a few juices a month ago and havnt touched a dart since. Down to 3mg juice now, I'm not sure if I'll go 0 nic though I still like it a bit.

Fuck using it in public, other than walking to and from work. The vape community is fedora tier as a whole, one guy was using one in a movie theater in front of me so I just casually tossed popcorn at him until he stopped. Fight douchey behavior with douchey behavior.

>>324001275

And yeah the community for vaping is fucking atrocious especially public users. The only time i EVER associate near these people is when i go to buy juice. At my job there is a smoking section and i cringe every time i see this one specific guy walk up to all these rough old leathery smokers and pulls out this huge robo dick. You can see the looks on there faces "wow what a fucking faggot"

I listened to a podcast where this game was brought up.

Apparently the kid got cancer at two years old a and has been in and out of treatment the entire time up until the doctors just could not treat him anymore. The parents invited their friends to some prayer thingamajig the night the boy died.

Man, I hate that. Perhaps it's unfair to make this comparison between mediums, but I tried to read "Art and the Zen of Motorcycle Maintenance', given my proclivity towards motorcycles, maintenance, and a metaphorical maintenance of the self, so to speak, and I simply couldn't stomach the overbearing nature of the writing.

I enjoy a story, a real good story, when I feel as if I myself am looking into a mirror of themes relevant to my person through their invocation in some foreign thing. Actions speak louder than words, yeah? As opposed to going on a pulpit and telling me the answer, choking this vast expanse of room for open interpretation, just let the story tell it's own narrative. It's how writing naturally flows; Whitman wrote a damn near essay on the matter, the simplicity in taking the already lyrical and making it rhyme even more so, organically.

I'm ranting, but I hate to see a real good story neither tarnished nor lessened, but nevertheless somewhat changed by a purported singular, blinding truth. I feel as if "interactive movies" could be done right, especially with the advent of VR, but the narrative strength just isn't often present.

Anyone can do whatever they want with art, I'll never say 'don't do that', but as someone whose mom is going to die within the year this game makes me really angry. Everyone can see right through it, and I can too. Unless you're a little girl you don't need stuff like this, this isn't going to be a real game and he may as well be releasing a $15 visual version of his own diary which he no doubt keeps in his purse. The only real relief in the way of tragedy is comedy making fun of it, something people who've never experienced tragedy treat as horrific because they have no idea how relieving it actually is, it's why it's called comic relief. The idea some anon had in this thread about playing as cancer and blasting stuff up would help me laugh, and ironically probably help me finally cry, better than a game about some bald, mutton chupped glasses faggot rubbing dollar bills over his cock.
>>
I do not understand why /v/ is upset about this game. Why are you faggots mad that some dad used a video game to deal with the death of his son? Why does it bother you if he tries to articulate his experience to others through a video game?

You don't have to buy it. You don't have to play it. You don't have to buy into any of the increasingly irrelevant games "journalism" bullshit about artsy games being the most important things in the industry.

From the little bit I saw of it, which is stuff that I've been exposed to only through /v/ because faggots are crying about it, its home console is like the fucking Ouya or something. Why do you care?

I can't say I have any opinion either way on the game, all kinds of games come out that I don't give a shit about and this is just another one to me, but I think it has something to do with the price tag.

When you make something personal like this, presumably as a coping mechanism, and then you charge people for it, no matter how you slice it at least a few people are gonna think you're exploiting tragedy for sympathy sales.

If the game was realistic in any way it would just be this depressed withered faggot puking and shitting himself while withering away. But no, this game is "poetic", so how about we romanticize cancer instead of showing any realistic aspects.

Not that anon, but it was made to be a sentimental game based upon his personal experience. He didn't make this to be a GOTY, but just to share what he personally felt.

If he made an exceptional gameplay it would probably say sell more, but the profit to cancer research is a bonus and not the main objective. The main objective is to share his feelings.
