stats talk to you like disco elysium because it’s a good idea but people haven’t made it horney enough yet
each stat is an extreme version of you
this stat is your corrupted occult sadomasochist future
there are 4 stats total, because 4 is 1 less than 5, which is a relatively unsexy number. did you know most winged insects have four wings? four is also a number most people have heard of, making it accessible and marketable. 4️⃣
stats interject passively, but can be ROLLED at key points like the degenerate gambler you are
you find yourself in a terrible place. terror breeds specialization. or confusion. maintain suit integrity or become just another wet spot on the panties of death.
greenie made a beautiful UI for the game: Perfect’s INNOCENT-issue flip phone. the last time phones were MANLY.

“back button”? ok homo. how about you kill something if you want to go back that bad?
when it comes to UI, style is INFINITELY more important than substance. we do not “User Interface” we “Loser Interface”. from the moment your player clicks the mouse they have lost. they are undoubtedly a slimy failure and cannot be reasoned with. it is beyond fact that “gamers” are the ruined fuckholes of the consumer world. “good UI”? “minimal”? “clarity”? “accessibility features”? get the fuck out of here… the gamer is an animal who will click through ten menus in their favorite jrpg just to pick up a rock or some shit. gaming is an expression of their innate desire to submit. “SUBmenus”? hello???
UI is also an expression of the player’s stats. the higher a stat, the more it inflicts its way of organizing information on you…but that’s a story for another day!!
in other news your lady on the front lines of cali yuga is praying she doesn’t get burnt up by giga-fire. generous thanatoidal coils strangle the false country, forcing people into transfiguration. past present and future is formless and hazy. maintaining holding pattern…
