    Everybody wants to be a snes/nes game

    Fp just realized that several million people have genesis nostalgia and noone was doing that

    Typically, reminding people of their horrible childhoods isn't a good route to success.

    I dunno, there's probably something to a pitch of "like a Genesis game, but good".

    I will fight you both

    this will be the music that plays

    Their goal for Incarnations is to have around 27. Not including the guest characters.

    And while that does seem a bit crazy, if they actually end up making that many, that game will be replayable as HELL. Like, it's a 30 hour rpg, I could easily see myself beating that without ever using half the cast, then restarting the game just to mess around with the rest.

    Hopefully they don't Chrono Cross it

    that's a pretty far secondary concern right now though

    Oh shit, wait, that's a turtle. My bad.

    A turtle is exactly .533 repeating percent of a frog.

    Or 8/15.

    A fraction of a frog, you could say.

    The Orcs Must Die games were just super stressful to me for some reason.

    turtles are pretty similar to dragons though

    Reptilian, tough as nails, giant city destroyers, breathe fire... yep, checks out.

    And again, crowd funded games always blow up in the last couple days. They are at 46% of their goal, growing steadily every day, and I could totally see them getting to the goal at the end

    I still want to be Sans. Just standing around not giving a stone cold fuck.
    Then utterly destroying whatever starts a fight with me when they actually seem like they'll accomplish something.

    It's the beam spam that'd make it, for me.

    Sometimes I hate video games as much as I love them.

    Pedant note for pedants:
    There are two short lines in The Odyssey that describe Athena as arranging favorable winds for Odysseus or his son, but it is the equivalent of her starting the car for them. She only gets away with doing it without Poseidon noticing or interfering because she is essentially sneaking Poseidon's enemies over the ocean while Poseidon is distracted by a crazy party. Water/air control is not something Athena is known for, and it really has almost nothing to do with the primary types of assistance she provides in the story or all of mythology for that matter. /pedantry

    Wasn't Athena Odysseus' patron deity?

    Makes sense she'd be the one who fucks with the weather to get him home

    That just seems like a really weird thing to hate a game over?

    I don't hate the game. I dislike what it does with mythology. Big difference. Have you ever loved a game but didn't like its characters or story? Being able to have nuanced opinions without needing to absolutely love or absolutely hate everything is great.

    Athena being Odysseus's deity really has nothing to do with it. What if Hephaestus was Odysseus's deity? Does Haphaestus now control the ocean and weather just because one of his worshippers is on a boat?

    It's mischaracterization of Athena, not only because it puts her in a Poseidon role that is not a natural fit for her, but because it misrepresents how she ACTUALLY helped Odysseus and his family in that story, which had 99% to do with diplomacy and less than 1% to do with wind control.

    That game looks literally identical to 2006 game, Winds of Athena.

    Except somehow with an even worse title.
