The process of installing sounds like an absolute nightmare. I'm in.
This seems pretty cool, though. I might check out the ADRIFT software, as obscure and ancient as it may be, and mess around with it a little to see what it's like. The let's play thing sounds interesting too. ^^
Update: Okay, Windows did chastise me a little for trying to install this old-ass software, but the installation was pretty quick: I did the full install because I planned on checking out developer mode too. The developer mode is looks about as old as it is, but I've been playing around with tasks and locations to see what it's like. Also got Skybreak! while I'm at it to see what an actually functioning ADRIFT game would look like. Update 2: Autocomplete is fucking horrendous and makes me want to cry.
That's understandable. I know enough people my age who still shit themselves and sob uncontrollably at the thought of dealing with a simple .zip file or putting down Windows' safety bumper rails by *gasp* clicking an extra button or two. It really isn't that hard to tell Windows you're capable of making big boy decisions.
I've been playing through Skybreak! for the past half hour or so and holy shit is it cool. There's a bunch to do at every place my ship ends up at. I still haven't had the opportunity to catch any beetles yet, though. :P Edit: I don't know if this counts as catching a beetle, but I visited the Coleopterological Academy on Nibis where I was "matched" with a green beetle.
Also that grid map view in the developer mode made things so much easier to organize, thanks.
I'm in, because I never intend to play an ADRIFT game
Sure. I'm lazy and this seems like this requires minimal effort on my part.
This seems like fun, count me in! I installed Adrift without any difficulty, so thank god I don't have an antivirus. Despite a very outdated interface, it's actually really cool.
Skybreak is entertaining too. Probably should've named my character something other than Waffle though.
Sounds interesting. I'd like to be tagged.
I played Skybreak a few years back. As I recall, I made it quite far, but I was too busy to play the game for a while, and I never picked the game back up. The game file is on an old laptop that can barely connect to WiFi or open a browser, but somehow I managed to load the save file and take a screenshot of my inventory. As it turns out, I did manage to capture a few beetles at some point.
I also saved the transcript for my game, so I might start playing my own game again after reading it to refresh my memory.
King of Dragon Pass is also interesting, though it might be a bit tedious deciding exactly what actions to perform each year and how to distribute points.
Well wishes to your father, and hope your work schedule improves soon!
If we're not playing the brazilian guy's bdsm rape game I'm not interested
Oh, I get it. *This* is the Let's Play. That was clever.
OK, I pick that you quit both jobs, actually. It just seems like that would maximize writing time.
