Ring of Elysium, an also-ran Battle Royale game from Tencent that I have been playing a lot of with friends, has started developing the backstory of its peculiar snowy Murder Vacation Town with a sort of ARG-lite thing this week, expanding on the random contextless notes and diaries that were already littered around the game map.
And there's a couple of kinda not_sure_if.gif details so far that make me think nobody in the dev team knows any Jews, or...?
Like the Mogen David written in blood.
The buses parked at the ski resort have a route placard on them that I'd never looked at before today, but it turns out that said route is "DOWNTOWN VIA JEWISH HOME" and I have no idea what that means since nothing on the map mentions Jewish Home as a location (or Downtown) for that matter, and with zero context I'd be like "huh?" but now I'm kinda...grumpily saying "huh?"
I am defaulting hard toward "just doesn't know and doesn't care" but eesh, side eye actively engaged at this point.
@joshmillard just pretend it's actually a movie title in the works like home for purim
@joshmillard Ugggh, that's suspicious and that star-with-six-points thing is just a bad, bad sign. It's darkly funny that by incorporating a Star of David, it's arguably actually a flag of a crimson color.
