art by Evan, writing/design by me
game we’re working on about boys and maggots
this is the other Perfect Tense game, it’s fun seeing different interpretations of the same character and world
both artists work with paper, which is pretty unusual with games
it’s a short visual novel and if you like very gross stuff you might like it
Evan rubs dirt and spit on the paper to get that filthy texture. i love their art so much, i want to use this game to show everyone how good it is!
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.
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.
more stats later!

serious game with Themes
Xrafstar (“evil animal” in Middle Persian) are vermin/human hybrids. It is forbidden for Ahriman to directly attack humanity, so xrafstar come from possession and contracts.
Aristocrats are dynastic haunts, passing down their personalities through human vessels instead of giving birth to heirs. This is a lossy process that can lead to hyper-dementia.
check your stats, fashion, inventory, messages; each menu is a program in your phone, and you can unlock more (i like the idea of porn, malware, “lil pal” progs, etc…)
“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!!
it’s a horror game about vermin, sugar, knees, fashion, torture, obsession, just normal guy stuff
the GUI must display the name of the protagonist and his zodiac sign at all times
no serious game would deviate from this principle
