Finally a natural language gives me the tools to capture what's really in my heart:

You can identify an alpha male by the way he glitches out, crashes, and spontaneously deletes your files.

Beta does less of that, but can be distinguished by sloppy or unprofessional presentation.

You uh well you just kinda swim around and explore. You also get to learn about fish by petting them.

You can pet a nautilus and a praya dubia. This is a vv good game.
