These games all make use of forced perspective, and rely on observing their scenes from very exact vantage points. This breaks down if you can move your head - or indeed if you observe the scene with two eyes, where at most one eye can be at the right position.
I feel like tvtropes does not acknowledge the trope of tar-like physical corruption (often with a purple/red/green tinge) that hurts on the touch, covering parts of landscapes/surfaces in SO many games.
Created an account just to express my bewilderment.
I'm glad we eventually picked up Haven! The combat is not a huge element, the other gameplay is chill/satisfying (if not hugely varied), but the standout feature is "play a relatable couple in an intimate relationship, treated with maturity and humor".
Okay, I got inspired to do a new redesign of my website.
Check it out and let me know what you think, or if you're seeing any issues:
Evolution of the design of my personal website over the past 20 years. I'd completely forgotten that first one.
Now, I no longer have any conception of what a personal website can look like that has a very personal look yet also doesn't look dated. All examples of supposed great website design look like they use the same templates and have virtually no distinguishing features.
Websites used to be more fun and ooze way more personality. Granted, even the best of old website designs I remember do all look dated now, but I think that's more due to having been conditioned to expect minimalism through mass exposure than due to any inherent inferiority.
@Thunderfulgames@twitter.com if there is a way to buy your game (for PC) that doesn't require going through that mess of a store, please let me know! I'd really like to buy and play The Gunk, as it looks like something I'd enjoy.
And as much as they call it a "preference" it's not a valid option to choose a market different from the country my credit card is associated with, because they fix the credit card address country field to the chosen market.
Of the 100 best grossing VR-exclusive games on Steam in 2021, only 19 were released in 2021 - and 0 of the 12 games in the Platinum category.
(No, Eye of the Temple is not in the top 100 by the way)
It might seem a superficial things to highlight, but in retrospect I really appreciate that there was no goofy sidekick. Not to say that there was no goofiness and humor, they just found more integrated ways to incorporate it.
Correction, the image has a typo where I wrote "jock" but it should have said "hock".
