FEBRUARY HMD


1) Comment to this post with a list of your characters! This meme, by the way, is voluntary but recommended.

2) Give and receive constructive criticism! We'll be watching and we will intervene if flames are being thrown about. Additionally, this is for commenting on the characters, and not the people playing them.

3) This meme is more for concrit than compliments--there will be a compliments meme for straight-out love, don't worry.

What the fresh hell were you thinking when you put human hearts on the menu? You know some of your players are squicked by cannibalism and you have already made some of them sick. You should have known better and I hope you are all aware that this has caused you to lose the trust of your players.

That isn't good enough. People who are squicked by cannibalism will still be forced to deal with it because it could be mentioned in tags to them and it exists in a capacity they can't ignore. It is some of the food available to them and it is seen by everyone.

In the interest of keeping your players from dropping because of your blatant disregard for their comfort please remove it from the menu and issue a public apology.

I admire how you handled the above.

Good on you, mods. People knew they were playing in a horror game when they apped. An entire game does not need to revolve around their squicks. If players are so strung out by the hearts on the menu but not all the other examples that have happened over months and years, there's the door. I would be far more disappointed if the modbase gave in to the noisy few than leaving it up and providing some cuts and warnings. If Animus's mods removed and apologized for everything that made a player uncomfortable, then we'd be playing a slice of life game, not a horror game.

I agree with what the other two anons responding to this comment have said. It's frankly quite ridiculous that an anon, attempting to claim to speak for all the players in the game, demanded for a public apology and removal of any and all content that offends their sensibilities.

This isn't a slice of life game, it's a horror game. There's going to be content that is disturbing and squicky, because that's the nature of the genre. If that anon wasn't a troll and an actual player here, they should be ashamed of themselves.

Thank you for standing your ground, mods.

Are the people waiting on results from October's event going to be getting their results? Considering the prize effectively decides whether or not they have a food stockpile for events where food is scarce. Especially since the dinner menu is unappetizing this month and the weather would make hunting and gathering less effective. While I understand the mod in charge of it may be too busy, couldn't they pass it on to someone else?
