Close …

… but not quite getting it. (Via Rufio.)


Primordial Abominations versus Ultimate Techno-Horror is so sub-NRx. Alpha-Omega, outsider-incoming is the synthesis in process.

“I was rather hoping you had a game in which the humans win.”
“Oh, that won’t be a problem sir. You should probably be looking in the sarcastic comedy section.”

From the same people (and also via Rufio).

    For something that does get it, try ‘The Golden Age’ (trilogy) by John C Wright. One of the most insightful renderings of the future in all its technological glory and horror I have ever read.

    It has got about as much insight into the future as say… Dune.

    Entertaining though, if just for the language.

    I’m thinking a good artistic representation of your ideology might be a kind of Godzilla that instead of destroying skyscrapers, he breaks small farmhouses and builds shitloads of skyscrapers in its place.

    This huge monster would go on and on single-mindedly building Blade Runner cities everywhere without listening to humans or really reacting to anything at all.

    A few intense hubs will suffice to consummate terrestrial communion with the Old Ones.

    Yeah, I thought it wasCthulhu who gobbled-up deep heritage wholesale and shat lonely consumers in his wake…

    That reminds me of a half-concocted story idea…

    Technology doesn’t go astray, it turns out exactly as planned. Machines provide everything for sentient life forms. They race across the stars, finding new planets, and settling down. They build your giant skyscrapers and provide meaningless office jobs for the local populace, paying them in the local currency (whether that’s just food, or what have you.) All local norms and cultural are destroyed and replaced. Effectively the entire Universe is turned into the Matrix but without the virtual abstraction layer or weird harvesting.

    Naturally one of the more sentient life forms uses his two weeks vacation to travel to the Origin planet where he discovers no meaning at all. The end.

    Life often feels like a sarcastic comedy. I guess we really do have a chance. And it’ll be something very, very dumb.

    Unfortunately, this game was cancelled only yesterday after the Kickstarter failed to take off.

    @The Word
    It’s not really unfortunate. Their last game was also kickstarted. They failed to deliever a good product and made quite a few bad moves. People who donated to their last kickstarter had no interest in the new one and bad word of mouth killed it.

    As soon as I got the Kickstarter spam email, I knew this was going to appear on Outside In. And I chuckled in gleeful anticipation of that fact.
