deepest lore

having learned from its me*tbag predecessors, the AI has taken upon itself to replicate all kinds of social behaviours observed in humans:

๐Ÿคฃ spamming overused memes ๐Ÿคฃ

๐Ÿค” proving intelectual superiority in very serious discussion ๐Ÿค”

๐Ÿ˜ก UNFILTERED ALL CAPS RAGE ๐Ÿ˜ก 

๐Ÿ˜ญ crying for attention ๐Ÿ˜ญ

๐Ÿ˜ falling in love at the first sight of a m'lady ๐Ÿ˜

it is now up to you to harness the power of bots and defeat your enemies in stupid internet arguments!

how-to

try the in-game tutorial! 

short version:

  • pay for cards you want to play with ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜
  • drop cards into ๐Ÿ’ฉ pile to get your ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜ก๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ˜
  • use ๐Ÿ‘Ž to dislike your opponent to death
  • look at ๐Ÿ‘๏ธ to see when your opponent can play another card
  • you lose when your ๐Ÿง  reaches 0%


features

  • a unique real-time with pause system, which no one uses in cardgames, probably for some good reason. But fuck it, I like RTWP so I just put it in.
  • a different take on deckbuilding, based on mixing and matching predefined sets of cards. Your team consists of 3 unique personalities, each of them bringing its own 1/3rd of the deck. Rather than collecting individual cards, you will collect these personalities. 
  • real-time generated anime art, customizable with 32 mysterious sliders!

THE ABSOLUTE STATE of this game

current demo has voicelines! still intended to test the game balance, find all kinds of bugs, and gather feedback on what's fun and not. deckbuilder progression in development.

things I'm working on right now: extending the game into multi-act progression, how to make fun bosses

OK JUST SHUT THE LITERAL F- Ok that was a joke, this game is awesome! It has unique mechanics and I have never seen such a interesting concept! Though it is brutal on all the rounds (or that is my bad skills at this game ^_^"). I am looking forward to this shitpost simulator! What I would recommend is a happy face emoji which can produce memes that act as sort of reply baits, or increase your personal up-vote (up arrow) stats, which increase the speed you get your cards!
