Goddammit.

Going to try to do a stream tonight. Not sure when it'll start, but I'm aiming for about 10pm EST, see if I can go for a couple of hours.

Stream is up.

I was working on implementing the Special Outfit again, after RAGS crashed and ate all the work last Tuesday. Then, after an hour and a half, during a routine "open array" operation...it crashed again. And I wasn't judiciously saving.

I hate my life sometimes.

Also, on the weirdness news report, my wife of all people says that I should seriously consider putting anal into the game. It's moments like this that give me pause, and make me examine my life and realize how weird it is sometimes...

  1. Ha! Just in case she was hinting at two things at the same time, subtext can be odd sometime. If she was, use 'Gun Oil' - seriously, totally awesome lube, just put in a few drops.

  2. ...That is the funniest thing I've heard in weeks.

  3. I knew this one restaurant owner, he'd only prepare dishes that he himself liked.

    His business didn't last very long.

  4. I'm firmly in the anti-anal camp. But I'm sure your wife has more pull than me (or anyone else on here for that matter)

  5. Why not implementing it...
    Its the players decision to use or not...
    Would give the game a more individual play...

    maybe a trait for addiction?

  6. i agree with your wife :3

  7. If it's getting to stage, just add it. Or set it as a donation objective. I can't believe everything in the game is one of your fetishes so you may as well get money out of it. And I promise you'll get the cash quick.

  8. agree with your wife, she and we might reward you :3

  9. That's... odd. Well, as with anything, just make sure you take the time to discern fact from fiction I say. No need to say what research methods are used, don't need to hear.

  10. Oh, come on! It's just ridiculous. He just wants to boosts donations.

    Totally agree with:
    >I knew this one restaurant owner, he'd only >prepare dishes that he himself liked.

    >His business didn't last very long.

  11. Dear above Anon:

    First of all, no. Second, I care far more about the opinion of my wife than random whiny people on the internet.

    Third, you are entitled to your incorrect opinions, but don't try to pass them off as the truth.

    Thanks,

    The Management.

  13. I am no fan of anal, but if you decide to put it in to the game I would like the option to decide which hole is "explored."

    Don't listen to any of the whiny beggars on either side. Do only what you want to do. This is your game and you have the final say.

  14. ultimately its up to you, however those who wish it may have to write it, who knows, maby your wife is just as a talented writer as you

  16. Having now played the game to the two week mark, I think you really need to update your short description of the game. It currently says:

    "The game more or less begins when you're changed into a woman for one year as punishment for your promiscuous ways, at which point you have to adapt and start a new life."

    Which is basically an outright lie. If what Maria says to you at her second meeting is true. It also means that she lies to the PC several times during the opening after she has revealed herself and turned the PC.

    The instant she tells the PC that the spell can't be reversed by her, my first question is "What the hell kind of morals do you have?! If I can't be changed back, how is this atonement?"

    Then I realize that to her the PC is nothing but an experiment. She has already destroyed the mind of someone testing a spell, and decided to continue using the spell and broke more people's minds. She isn't looking to punish people or get justice, she wants to use them to master her magic. She has no twisted sense of justice, she is outright evil. She is an enemy of humanity and must be stopped.

  17. This is great news, I hope to see more stuff like this Anonymous man, because you're a great writer, and it's sad to see that most of the stuff in this game is consentual vaginal sex in the missionary position.

    +1 for adding anal.

    ReplyDelete
  18. not a fan of anal, but its your call.

    Just make sure to make it a toggle-able option somewhere, or a conscious choice you have to make.

    It won't happen without choosing it.

    Also seems rags is crashing all the time for you, think its the newest version of RAGS bugging out? Might wanna let the RAGS dev know whats up.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I say do whatever the hell you want. It's your game. People shouldn't whine so much about something that is pretty much free.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Dark Master, did you seriously get offended on behalf of your fictional self? The fictional self you probably have working at a corner whoring herself out?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Offended? No.

    I'm questioning if Maria is suppose to be committing crimes against humanity. There is also the fact that her behavior and actions are quite inconsistent between those two meetings.

    Also, my character is doing what little of the secretary job as there is, since the job that I would actually have given him is unavailable. So I more or less ignored the jobs and just cheated the money.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Maria only seems to care about women's ''feelings''. Beyond that, she's as amoral as everyone else. I'm kinda hoping by the time this RAGS game is complete there's a way to 'turn the tables' on Maria. Perhaps by selecting the appropriate job, the game places the player character on a 'resistance route'.

  23. Sorry if it will be bit of rude but HALLELUJAH!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hope there's understanding that anal does not necessitate scat. Because that's the only reason I can see people being opposed to it, that they assume it must also involve scat on top and no way around it. I personally love anal, but scat is not the way (it's easy even if time consuming to avoid, but then bondage and other stuff are time consuming to prepare too, so...).

    ReplyDelete
  25. ^ also, most fictionalized things often skip over the preparation. CoC, SM, etc. also skip it completely.

  26. I wonder what this new special outfit is like. Maybe give it some effects and stuff. Please listen to your wife anony man. She I think may be reaseonable in her request.

  27. Joking aside, to the wonderful people posting chef comments, back off and make your own games then post links so we can play them. I love anal in real life, I like it in games, but I enjoy Skyrim just fine and there is no anal in it. Anon, if you put anal in then more power to you, if you want I'll be happy to go through and write the dialog so you don't have to worry about touching it. (Sure others would help too if you wanted, just put up a list of scenes you'd want typed up so you can just copy-paste them in) And if you don't want to put it in then that's ok too, your game, have fun with it. And tell your wife she rocks for being so supportive of you while developing this game!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well, if the wife says to put anal in then I guess you're buggered if you do and buggered if you don't...

    Sorry. Had to. :)

    How about making it so anal is optional. You have to buy "Booty Lube" to enable it?

  29. N0 Anal Anonymous said , so there will be no anal , get over it ppl :D

  30. Why are some of you getting so upset at the people providing input on this? Admittedly, the one guy was a dick, but AnonymousMan put him in his place. This was a topic he brought up though, and comments are enabled (and obviously viewed by AM) so that people can provide their input. I haven't really seen anyone whining (in the comments on this post, at least) and demanding anal be added.

    As to my opinion, I feel like it is something that is lacking from the game. Skyrim was mentioned by Hypno, but the big difference is that this is a highly sexualized game. I don't expect anal sex in Skyrim, because I don't expect any kind of sex in Skyrim. That's not say I'm demanding anal in Cursed, I just think it would be a good addition. Ultimately, though, its up to AM, and not having anal does not significantly detract from the game.

    That said, I hope you have better luck with RAGS in the future. I know how frustrating it can be to lose your work, and I think I can safely say we all appreciate the work you have put into the game.

  31. While it isn't my thing, there do seem to be some openings for it in the game that would include it without including it well, too much.

    If I remember right, there's a couple of instances where you get to 'choose' what sort of sex you're having, if it's just added to that rather long list (I think it's the VIP and the rental agent, right?) and you get someone who likes it to write the scenes... Then it's just a copy/paste variable type deal of the tit sex?

    That's me speaking in complete ignorance of the way RAGs works though...

    Honestly, I don't care one way or another. I prefer vaginal-vaginal, or vaginal-oral, and on rare occasion vaginal-penile, so I'm fine with you not adding it, but whatever your wife makes you do is fine with me too.

    *Gasp* It's TheDarkMaster! On a different channel!

  33. There's a line from the TV series Shameless that I think makes a decent argument regarding anal. One of the boys in the family, Lip, finds out that his brother is gay and he's sleeping with the owner of a convenience store. They're sitting in a car together sharing a cigarette after a small argument about how the owner is married and has children. Lip says "Seriously, up the ass? Can you get used to that? The whole point of the digestive track is one-way traffic. It just is." His brother, Ian, laughs and says, "'It just is?' Like we're only given our lungs to fucking smoke, right?"

    Whatever your point of view on how we got to where we are we hardly use our bodies as they were intended. Mouths were probably not meant to give blow jobs and noses not meant to snort what have you. I'm not saying it should be in, or shouldn't be, just that we do with our bodies what we will, like take drugs, turn into cowgirls/succubi/nekogirls/futanari/bird people, become prostitutes and strippers, get knocked up by cursed dildos. They're all things that, even by standards in reality, are things we probably shouldn't be doing.

  34. Might I point out that if introducing the idea that h-games need not exclude all fetishes not in the author's personal set somehow makes one "random whiny people", than that goes double for random internet commenters upset by comments to a blog that's not their own.

    @Anon11.28.11 10:10: sorry, must troll.

    Smoking kills you, so that's a no too.
    Mouths are actually meant for eating, and oral is pretty much eating, so that can stand.
    Noses are not meant for snorting, that is potentially lethal as well. Drugs are meant to be consumed by digestion.
    On this plane, we aren't supposed to transform into things either.
    Prostitution is the world's oldest profession (aside from carpentry, building, hunting, and gathering) so that's perfectly natural.
    Dildos in general are unnatural, cursed ones that can make you pregnant are even more so.

    Troll off. Wooh. That was hard.

  36. Maybe we'd just rather see Anonymous Man work to actually expand the game's story or careers rather than spend it on yet another highly specific fetish that only a fraction of the players are going to be interested in. Maybe he shouldn't say it's never going into the game, but I can't blame him for having it be low priority.

    ReplyDelete
  37. False choice fallacy. Whereas it's true that there's a lot of career work to be done, and it's also true that any work AM does on one thing is time not spent on another, do you seriously think that he hasn't done "highly specific fetishes that only a fraction of the players are going to be interested in", or that he won't do any more in the future?

    What priority (or none) he assigns to any one proposed feature is of course his choice. The only question is whether he might be too quick to totally reject some things out of hand because they aren't his personal turn-ons.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Anal is by no stretch of the imagination a highly specific fetish.

    In fact calling it a fetish at all is laughable, like saying you have an "oral fetish" if you like oral.

    It's just something people do when they're bored of vanilla sex.

  39. It's fairly natural for dudes to stick their dicks into any orifice they can find.

  41. Good god, man! Second time around?! You are really unlucky!


    Maybe you should try to make a habit of hitting CTRL+S, if RAGS does have such a keyboard shortcut. I've had similar accidents, which is why I'm glad I've made it a habit to keep pressing that little key combo every half a second.

  42. Fenoxo--as far as I know--isn't the hard gay type. Yet, time and time again he does work on fabulously homosexual material to the point of weirding himself out. Why? Because some of his players like it.

    Why is that important? If he doesn't deliver what his players want, they go elsewhere. Ya dig?
