Ok, let’s try this again.

This has nothing to do with games and is not a matter of legitimate public interest, but is simply a personal matter. I would hope and request that the games press be respectful of what IS a personal matter, and not news, and not about games. This is explicitly about…

Great, let’s play the victim and completely avoid taking responsibility for one’s actions! I’ve tried to express sympathy, but holy shit this post just makes me lose all respect for you and what you have done for women in indie games.

Let’s start off by saying having your ex-boyfriend blast all your stuff on the internet wasn’t cool. I think that was a low blow. All these trolls going “lolol burgers and fries” and posting unrelated pictures of you when you did porn isn’t cool either. Or death and rape threats, things like that.

Do you remember the Josh Mattingly incident? Surely you do. I bring this up because this was an example of someone doing a bad thing; something that would taint his career, and sparked a lot of hate in his own direction. But do you know what he did? He fucking APOLOGIZED. He owned up to the fact that he did a shitty thing, and worked to fix himself so he wouldn’t be a stupid idiot in the future. And while he still gets the occasional taunt, things went over a lot better because he apologized and went to therapy for his problem.

You have a problem, Zoe. Stop fucking playing this as a, “The poor woman is oppressed 4 her sexuality :””(“ card. This isn’t even about you having sex. This is about you being a liar and a manipulator, and using “harassment!” the second anyone calls you out on your shit. This is about you being hypocritical in being ~honest~ and standing up for ~consent~. This is more than your ex being a bitter jealous ex-boyfriend. ‘Cause after all, according to how you view consent, you raped him. Time and time again. I guess he deserves no right to properly call out his rapist?

I was really hopeful for you. I was really hoping you would take a mature approach about this, just acknowledging “yeah that happened”, apologizing, and working on yourself to deal with your issues of lying. But nope. Let’s continue to play the victim, like you did NOTHING to bring this upon yourself. Yup. Thanks. I really want to have female representation in games be based upon the notion that women just lie and cheat their way to good reviews, because her popularity can’t be based on her merits alone. And you know who has reinforced that notion? YOU.

Also, it’s unethical to falsely flag a YouTube video because you don’t like the contents in it. This just makes it more and more apparent that what is said in there is true, and you’re abusing power once again to hide it. FFS Zoe, if you just owned up to your shit, this hardly would have been as big of a deal.

What’s happening to Zoe Quinn right now is fucking despicable. Fuck gamers, fuck video game culture. I want to burn it all to the ground and play my games in a vacuum.

This shitty sexist boys club needs to die a quick death. I hate how awful the people who…

There’s no doubt women are unfairly judged on the basis of their gender. I still don’t see how her behavior is excusable, though. From the Wizardchan bullshit, to the infidelity (which to me, it’s more about lying than her having sex), to now claiming false copyright claims on videos, she is not doing any favors in the name of feminism or women in indie games.

She needs to step up, own her actions, and stop doing shitty damage control because all it’s doing is making it worse for everyone involved. The way she was treated by internet trolls didn’t cause her infidelity or lying. That’s all on HER, and she needs to put some big girl panties on and deal with the consequences.

I don’t condone the harassment, but really her actions have only hurt women in the indie gaming industry more than some dorks on Twitter going “LOLOL BURGERS AND FRIES”.

This is a direct consequence of her behavior, and now thanks to her, female indie devs are going to have to fight back against the notion that their games only get good reviews because they sleep with journalists. Great. Like they need more problems.

Point the finger at who is responsible.

My favorite iPhone game.

This is the beautiful Nawsea (pronounced Nausea). She is a katt/woof hybrid. He suffers from gastrointestinal problems, which means she is often bloated, so body acceptance is important to him. Also, she changes his gender for every pronoun in a sentence.

About how long do ya work on each collectem drawing on avg? o.o Oh also I wanna wish you guys good luck with the game as well. \o/

It varies, really. Some Collectems, like Ninjuck here, were designed easily, and didn’t have much work from sketching to the final sprite.

Many though, go through several iterations before settling on a sprite. I mostly draw sketches to send over to our super cool spriter, Allen, and then we adjust the Collectem from there. Sometimes, for example, certain details are too small for a sprite, so the Collectem has to be redrawn to accommodate that. Even so, many sprites you see on the website now may not be the final product, and everything is subject to change!

You're the concept artist for Collectems I started following the game when I found out it was coming to Vita. I have a few questions. Will there be alot of cute Collectems? also I'm curious about how many we will be able to hold on our person at 1 time.

Hey there! Don’t know when this was sent, but hopefully not too long ago.

I’d speak for myself, but I think Collectems has plenty of room for some cute Collectems. We want a diverse range of species, so having some cute ones is definitely something I’d want to include.

As for the amount, we’re basing it off at 6 Collectems at a time for the moment, but that could change. We want to encourage people to cycle through many Collectems, so we want to base our system around that.

If you have any other questions or want something explained in detail, just drop me a PM again. Thanks for your interest!
