the message is the medium amirite

Howdy! I started Emotional Mecha Jam.
People above have given reasonable, standard answers. I'd like to offer two other possibilities:

1) Make the tags freeform. This is one of the beauties of You can make tags for whatever. This means that you can find the big things everyone looks for (metal, rock, r&b, etc) but also that you can find intriguing and evolving microgenres as they evolve (vaporwave, pzacore, apocalyptic folk, aleatoric). I don't know if this is possible given your software, but imo would be optimal.

2) Sidestep the media-bound classification and make tags for emotional, mood, sexual, etc content in the style that Archive of Our Own (A03) and other fanfiction communities do it. When I'm looking for a game I don't care if it's a board game or a video game, I am trying to fill an emotional need. Do I need a game to make me happy? sad? jealous? Freeform tags solves this, but if your software doesn't allow for that, please expand all tagging options, across media to include this.


Although I think you have described the basic emotional content of *any* rpg, we're going to accept your submission.

Convince me that this has centered emotion and not combat, please.

love it

Thank you for including the .docx file. I've run a few Knave sessions now and am excited to tinker with adding house rules, my own commentary, etc., directly into the file.

All of your bitsy games are so cute (and somewhat terrifying)!

Cool! You know I kind of like that it is not quite understandable to me, it means that the "alien" quality is still preserved! QujlIj vItIvqu'pu' jIH!

Hi! I just found the game randomly and it is very nice. I am a Klingon speaker, so I see that you are using Klingon (though it is not quite grammatical and so I cannot understand it) which is great! Why did you choose Klingon?
