Glory to CYStia. Truly incredible how everyone else who likes clicking in their reading on the Internet is the most histrionic dork imaginable

You heard the queen, better start doing as she says before she gets mad.
Okay jeez fine here.
Eh, I was just laying awake in bed, not doing anything anyway. Might as well have been productive and contribute more.
Oh while everyone is still contributing to the war effort (You are contributing right?) here's some side quests:
This is the list of my own contributions to the battlefront for ease of accessibility to rate: Link!
Also there's currently some poll going on over at IFDB about which is the best CYS story: Link!
You can vote on the current ones listed or add another one you think is the best.
Carry on brave CYStians and remember I'm always watching!
Great crusaders that have contributed to the cause so far have been marked for ascension.
The wretched slothful that have not yet heard the call will be cast down with the sodomites.
At last this near forgotten IF classic has the proper review and rating it has always deserved.
Joined the crusade and rated a few games
The best games from CYS are on IFDB at this point.
Register on IFDB
Rate games you recognize
I can count the number of ratings for any individual game on my fingers, so it actually helps to take the 10 minutes out of your life it requires to make an account, poke a game you like and rate it. The best stuff on CYS deserves preservation and it'll help with exposure for the site, so it's considered a good thing. If you can't commit a rating on behalf of CYS, what chance do your New Year's resolutions even have?
Well looks like CYS is getting a good foot hold in the IFDB. So far looks like Eternal has the most ratings at 14 as far as CYS stories.
While there are many games on there with more ratings than that, I'm starting to notice how many more games on there which haven't been rated nearly as much. (37 pages in the list is where I found Eternal, right on top of course)
Not all of these are old obscure ones either. Some of these I thought were supposed to be pretty well received or by the "big names" in the IF community. Even looking at the more well known CoG stories, they don't have much in the way of reviews/ratings either. Hell didn't even see the famous Samurai rape one or Tin Star. (Didn't see any of Suicidal Sammy's stories there at all. Lol)
A lot of the ones with hundreds of ratings have been in the database for awhile and/or are pretty well known (Old infocom games for example).
It really is just Mathbrush mainly rating everything at this point.
Anyway, glad my profile finally got reviewed and put through. I've also noticed that almost ALL other authors there have boring ass unfun profiles.
Y'know, not like this one.
I just wrote another review on there, but I guess I'll need to hunt down where these FFP are because there's so many links I have no idea where half of this shit is even going to or even means.
EDIT: Nevermind, I see it in my "Page" which listed everything you've done. I got 550 so far.
Eventually I'd like to see all of us on the Top 100 reviewer list, because that appears to be laughably easy given the low rate of activity for most of the year.
This game probably recreates my childhood experiences of reading CYOA books more than any other.
The chooseyourstory format is adapted more to CYOA books. Most Twine and Choicescript games have shorter text and more frequent choices that frequently meet back up later because it allows you to reuse a lot of text and code. Making a game where every branch goes somewhere different is usually too tedious to code, although some people have done it (like the game Animalia or Porpentine's Myriad).
But a lot of chooseyourstory games seem to get over the problem of needing to write a lot of text by just writing a lot of text, ending up with games with hundreds of thousands of words.
This game is meant for kids, I'd say between 10 and 13 or 14. You are sucked into a fantasy world where you meet strange wizards and adventurers.
There are few choices in this game but a ton of text in each one, and each choice branches a lot. Some are dead ends, but the engine lets you go back and retrace your steps quickly, which the game seems to encourage. This makes the small number of choices make sense, since each replay goes quickly, like paging through an old CYOA book.
I enjoyed it overall, and it gave me some ideas for my own writing.
Yep, I just posted a thanks message back to him on his profile. I'm guessing that's where it goes because I'm still trying to figure out the layout of the place sometimes.
EDIT: Just added 4 more reviews.
Now THIS is pod racing!
Ogre and myself have already made it into the Top 100 Reviewers section.
The Crusade continues!
Ironically, my tablet died halfway through this. . .
Ogre and myself are already both currently moved up to page 3 of the reviewer list. Pretty sure we'll both be in the top 50 reviewers at some point soon. (I think Ogre might already be there by the time I finish posting this)
It's sort of like that old 80s arcade game Gauntlet where we're just bashing through monsters to get to the next level.
Page 2 of the reviewer list and in the top 50 reviewers now.
(And finally ahead of Ogre!)
I've been doing some stuff on there since I have an account now.
Where's the forums at on there?
The forum is a different site, no need to even go there. It's boring and when it's not being boring (99% of the time) it's full of faggotry.
The IFDB site is the important one to rate and such.
Alright, I'll stick to that side of the interface, then.
Making fun of slimes?
How are my points calculated?
Points are awarded as follows:
+100 points for each review you write.
+5 points for each "Helpful" vote for one of your reviews, and -5 for each "Unhelpful" vote, but the total score for an individual review can never go above 200 or below zero.
+25 points for each Recommended List you've created that includes at least five games.
+10 points for each game rating you enter without a review.
+1 point for each Helpful or Unhelpful vote you enter for someone else's review.
I'm going to review them later, but for now I just rated.
Alright I actually reviewed the four terrible twine stories. Now I demand that people go rate up my reviews as being helpful.
Posted a review of AI Dungeon. Didn't hold back on being a narcissistic asshole. (Don't worry I still included you guys too, so remember to vote how helpful it is!)
5 new reviews up.
80 Days, Out There, Reigns, Fallen London and Sunless Sea
I'll probably be doing the 4 Sorcery! books next on the list.
Yeah you should get some enjoyment out of Out There. I remember first hearing about it since folks were comparing it to FTL, but honestly, it's pretty different and I played Out There, a lot more than FTL which I liked the concept of, but got too frustrated with.
I like how the sensitive poppet going on about censorship in defense of women attacked the only other female in the thread. Lol
Well that made me lol. This is the kind of law that they're always advocating for in incel forums because women are all sluts and whores who want to be brutally fucked by every man they pass on the street (despite the fact that no woman has or will ever fuck them.)
Must be really bad for the work place environment though. The women can never get to work on time or get any work done because they're too busy being fucked, and presumably the men are also late and never get any work done because they're too busy doing all the fucking... And the cleanup! That poor, poor cleaning crew, having to clean up a never ending stream of jizz. And presumably, if the cleaner's a lady, she'll constantly have to pause her work while she's getting fucked, and then clean up all the mess from the aforementioned fucking. Not a very practical law if I do say so myself.
As for the woman who feels sick and violated... It says EXACTLY what the game is in the description. I must say I am always baffled by people who read the description for games like this and think to themselves, "OMG, this is fucking sick! The game sounds traumatising and vomit enducing and just the act of reading it will probably give me PTSD... ... ... I'm going to read it!"
I like to think she also spends her free time on the pornhub comment section, complaining that "Teen Whore gets Brutal Gangbang from BBDs" is highly objectifying to women, as well as a negative representation of the African American community. ^_^
And incels. ^_^
Here's some fun incel posts I've found regarding the "Sexual Service Act"
The second post is definitely someone trolling (Probably Ford) because quite frankly incels don't actually have the balls to actually rape anyone, they just bitch in their basements. At worst they do what Elliot Roger did and STILL fail in losing their viginity.
The other two could very well be for real though.
I just posted my review of the story. Everyone go rate it as helpful before its incel fans rate it down!
Very helpful. Love SICK was a better fetish smut game and it didn't even have any sex. ^_^
"I feel sick and violated and I'm shaking"
I feel like the only appropriate reaction would be :joy:
I don't understand how these people can go outside without collapsing into a fetal ball because they saw some graffiti or something.
Posted 4 new reviews for the Sorcery! series.
