    YIIK makes me want to follow my dreams and learn to gamedev

    If Alex Yiik can make a game, what the hell is stopping me?

      we have dev threads here sometimes, look out for an op that looks like the one below. dev is pretty fun/easy

      [...]

      anyway, my prostitute ex girlfriend used to live in NJ, what Alex describes sounds nothing like jersey, this sounds more like Vermont or Iowa. does that mean something?

        Until YIIK point five confirms that the inconsistences in writing are signs that the fabric of reality is breaking down, there's no point in finding meaning in what's clearly a frickup in writing.

      >what the hell is stopping me
      Its called YIIK anxiety
      Its the overwhelming feeling that your game will never surpass YIIK

        Ironically, yet unironically I have this and autism. I sometimes cry when I get in my cubicle at work instead of deving.

    I think the biggest problem with YIIK is actually that the protagonist is ugly. People focus on the writing and whatnot but Alex's appearance is the big problem. Every other Mother-like has a cute protagonist. People would be way more forgiving of Alex if he was a twink.

      I don't know if Alex should be a twink but his soiboy look definitely did not help with Yiik's sales.

      Alex's soiboi look actually does work for his personality, but it does mean he's an ugly protagonist for sure.

      Alex is supposed to be the most undesirable, obnoxious motherfricker. He is quite literally a parody of your nostalgia-addled mid-2010s millennial who fellates Earthbound despite having never played it, and a jobless liberal arts major to boot. Making him attractive wouldn't work, he's a hipster through and through

      He's supposed to be unlikable, that being said I don't think thats an excuse.
      Shinji ikari is another unlikable protagonist, but I actually enjoy watching him. I can't say the same for alex, or any character in the game, since the dev can't write for shit.

          That's a left wing position now. The right are mostly pro-Israel.

      They really should remake Two Brothers as their next project. Alex walking around advertising a broken shitty game is stupid. You can't even call it a joke because the devs think so highly of Roy he appears in Yiik to give Alex a pep talk.

        They planned on remaking the game after they pulled the original from Steam, but no details ever surfaced about it.

    This game is the exact sort which used to be featured in Humble Bundles, but it hasn't been bundled at all yet. Sorry but I'm not paying more than a buck to get yiiked.

    >My mistake was thinking that video games are art. I wanted to make a game about a guy who’s a piece of shit unlikable character, who by the end of the game has to transform. But too many gamers, when they look at this, when they play a game, they’re so used to having to identify with the character, that if they play a game where the main character is unlikable or has to do some bad stuff, they immediately get triggered by it.

    >So, the thing is, games aren’t art. They’re toys for children and it’s considered in bad form to talk about anything meaningful, or impactful or thought provoking.

    >I was trying to make the video game version of a Chuck Palahniuk novel, or a Haruki Murakami novel. To try and do something a little different y’know? But it turns out, everyone just wants Ayn Rand-ian written characters, where the main villain is like Wesley Mouch. You immediately know what to feel about each character. […] When you make an unlikable character, people expect Sherlock Holmes or Dr. House.

    >They want flawed heroes, but only to the extent that they’re beautiful and intelligent and slightly Asperger-y. But they manage to be dicks to everyone and they get away with it because they bring some sort of savant-ism that saves the world. So if you make a character who’s just some hipster obsessed with the paranormal who hasn’t grown up yet and treats his friends like shit, people immediately feel- they don’t know how to process this.

      He made me rethink what it means to be an unlikable character. I think a distinction should be made between unlikable characters (characters we wouldn't like to know irl but are still compelling and fun to watch) and irredeemable characters (characters that are just horrible all around). Andrew thought he was making an unlikable character but he was writing an irredeemable character. Problem is that it would take a lot of skill to retain an audience with an irredeemable character, you would have to make the narrative really fricking good to justify it, but it just didn't work for Yiik. Yiik really gets bad after Essentia gets introduced, they would have to heavily rewrite the game past that point.
