Wow, this was very good. As someone who has a personal experience of religious trauma (though nowhere near what the protagonist experienced), I related a lot to the sense of internal struggle as they began to want to be a part of the real world and connect with people outside of the cult, their feelings of worthlessness as a result of being told to feel that way by authority figures in the cult, and the intense scrupulosity. While the cults in this game were of the fantastic sort, they still addressed aspects of the real world experiences of cult members and those who leave cults that most games and other media don't address. This humanizes survivors of abusive/high-control religious groups. Thanks for making this! 

In the mac version the ground of the garden shows up as bright pink. Cute game though

Ran into this error: 

wings The (lowercase:) macro's 1st value is the number 0, but should be a string.

I've only played through once, but wow, I'm impressed that this was made in a week!

There are entire categories on this site for Books, Comics, Tools, and more. Also, it's a major hub for indie physical games (tabletop rpg, card games, LARP, etc.) Not just for video games. This is exactly why I'm hosting the bundle

 

Neither. This is for people who make zines (preferably not games in zine form) and have already got them on their Itch accounts. The bundle is to raise awareness that zines are already on Itch. I've got a zine on my account called Let's Make a Zine if you'd like an example of what I'm talking about.

Hello! I'm hosting a bundle to spread the word that there are zines on itch.io and bring attention to zine creators on the platform! If you make zines on Itch and want to participate, here's the sign-up form, which has more information about how the bundle will work: https://forms.gle/sYn2SvigEjWnPy18A

If you just think it's a cool idea, feel free to spread the word by retweeting this tweet: https://twitter.com/ParadoxRevealed/status/1499949345751412742

Thanks for your interest! If you have any questions, feel free to ask here.

As an autistic person, I feel like this could be useful for allistic (non-autistic) people to learn how to accommodate autistic people in interviews. However, unfortunately many autistic people, even those with a lot of skill and potential, never finish their degrees due to institutional ableism in academia, which is a barrier to us getting even entry level jobs. Something like 80+% of autistic people are unemployed or underemployed. This game focuses on the small percentage of autistic people who have been able to fight through the structural ableism to have degrees and previous jobs in their desired field. Most of us won't get this far, and I feel like that's something that more companies need to address in their hiring processes. I've applied to dozens, even hundreds of entry level tech jobs, as someone who had over 150 credits towards a Stanford computer science degree, but because I was unable to finish the degree due to health, financial, and ableism issues, I can't get someone to take a chance on me. Of all those jobs I applied to, only one led to an interview, and that interview led to ghosting after an initially positive response, and finally an email that reversed their plans to move me forward in the hiring process. I'm almost 30 and still work part time for minimum wage outside of my desired field. It's going to take more than individual changes in interviewing strategies to improve things for autistic job seekers, but I don't have high hopes for structural change anytime soon

Will there ever be a mac version of this game?

It's Catalina 10.15.7 on a 2019 16 inch MacBook Pro. 

2.6 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i7

16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4

AMD Radeon Pro 5300M 4 GB

Intel UHD Graphics 630 1536 MB

Just tried the mac demo and sadly it ran pretty slow on my relatively new laptop. Also, I got flashing red lines on the edges of the screen that might be a seizure risk. I hope the full release will work for me, because this looks so cool otherwise!

Just played a oneshot of this game and I feel compelled to mention that the Ace's ability to "maneuver an unfamiliar vehicle without trouble" was used to allow the character to leap onto the back of a giant haunted bioluminescent space mole, make a psychic bond with it, and bowl over a bunch of mandate soldiers. Also, all the mandate's ships and large weapons were powered by reactors containing the trapped souls of dead novas. So after we snuck onto the ship and discovered the truth, we breached the reactor and told the ghosts the long lost secret of teleportation we had discovered, allowing us all to escape the "Not Death Star", where the Nova's former mentor who had joined the mandate had us cornered. Because he was so power hungry and unable to trust anyone, when we left him he was trying and failing to teleport, because the secret of teleportation was willingly sharing your power and minds with a group of people. Then the "Not Death Star" blew up, but it was left ambiguous whether he was able to make it out alive.

Thanks for rating my 00s website name generator! I actually was inspired to make it by this generator you made!

I want to buy the game. I'm an autistic magical girl fan. I just can't afford it at the moment, but it's high on my wish list.

I got Bisexual MOTHERFUCKER: A sci-fi game for 3-6 players. Thought you would be amused!

I'm guessing you aren't aware of the norms of the physical games community on Itch, but it's very common and socially expected for people to submit paid physical games to game jams and to be paid for their work in general. That's something the indie video game community can learn from the indie analog games community. Don't devalue your work!

I'm so dang excited to play this game! Belonging Outside Belonging is my jam AND the concept and metaphor are amazing!

Yeah, that's fine. I can still play unnotarized games on my Mac.

Can you export a Mac version?

This looks so cool! Will there ever be a mac version?

From a fellow survivor of religious trauma, I wish you a safe transition out of Christianity. It's been 14 years for me, and it's never totally left me. I still have some trauma responses. But it gets better.

Hi! I've actually run a new Ace Jam every January since the first one in 2018. The next one will be in January 2022.

Why are you removing the Mac downloads for your games? That's the only way I can play them. It's still possible to play Ren'py games on OS X Catalina

Will there be a Mac version?

The Mac download link doesn't work

I'll look to see if I can find the original file I used to print the text. How should I send it to you? Feel free to email me. My contact info is on my Itch account page.
