I really like this idea and wish it could be applied to all kinds of games, but it really is best suited to a big nonlinear speedrun-friendly adventure with optional quests, significant skips etc.
@Cheeseness it's that same shitty sense of how game developers live their lives that give people the idea that devs "take money and run", as if that ever happens.
@Trashbang when i become king of videogames every designer who has ever done this will have to walk around with a scarlet letter like badge of shame.
@Trashbang the term for this is "shameplay"
One challenge is that a huge amount of the resources invested in tooling today happens around the two big commercial game engines, which don't really care about being able to target cheap, weak hardware (and their editors running on it is totally out of the question). A new wave of homebrew engines and tools has been gathering for the past ~5 years, but it still has a ways to go before its energy can change things in a big way.
boutique handheld discourse has me really wishing there was a homebrew platform that excelled at:
- cheap, widely available, open (as much as possible) hardware
- SDK + simulator that runs on anything
- large community of people hacking on it & sharing knowledge
- diverse, welcoming culture that views games as an art form, doesn't care about the boundary between "game" and other stuff

@gatewave kinda similar with me. my life came apart in my early 30s and i had to rebuild it in a new place, and many of the friends i made / people i dated were just over the generational line, 2-5 years, from me. none of my gen x friends are what i'd call typical though, we have pretty similar politics and life situations. i don't have the debt some of my millennial friends do but none of us have a lot of security.
@joewintergreen if i already lived in paradise why would i need $5m?!?
remember when a bunch of open source projects adopted codes of conduct and the free speech of badass rockstar 10X programmers was trammeled unjustly, preventing them from being their true brilliant selves and grinding the productivity of all such projects to a halt? haha me neither, a lot of people just felt a little safer and more welcome to contribute.
