Real talk though: yes I think this hack is digusting. Not going to explain why, doing so would just get me more "lol you're upset" responses that would ignore anything I might have to say.
But really what annoys me the most about this is how representative this is of the problems with this year's hacking contest and how you all don't seem to notice it. You all blame the hacking contest being a shitshow this year on the people submitting content to you, while making garbage that stinks even worse than the shit you're complaining about. People will forget those shitty joke hacks, but this is something that just makes people legitimately uncomfortable. And while you are all laughing cause lol people are getting triggered, less people are going to check out the contest because of it.
And you know, people probably wouldn't have that much of a problem with this hack being a thing if it just came from some random idiot trying to be edgy. But no, it comes from the people running the damn thing, sending the message that you all are total pieces of shit who'd be willing to insult their visitors and spit them in the face for the situation they're in.
Don't be shocked if the contest gets even less coverage next year because you all decided to continue doing this kind of shit.
Really? Not noticing how much of a shit storm this year was?
Yeah. Because an overhaul hasn't already been put in place so the shit storm that was this year WILL NOT be allowed to occur next year. Next time get your facts right before so vehemently talking out of your ass in such a manner.
You also assume that joke hacks will be gone. If they are done properly and have a theme that is consistent and works, (like what this game is planning to be) then it's fine. Shit like blue potato and the likes are not. As I said, get your facts right and find out what is actually going on before opening your mouth.
Also, to your "BAWWW THIS HACK UPSETS PEOPLE".
As SuperEgg stated in his SSRG post:
Spanner - Scottish: The Signpost Art. That joke art was the kickstart of this gravy train.
Ayla - Lesbian: For the wonderful Act 1 layout. Has saved me so much time. Though I've added onto it since, it has set the groundwork for the best layout ever.
SonicBoom - Half-Mexican: Made ALL the enemy sprites. The Sombreros, maracas, and Corona bottles you've seen plastered in my posts and in this hack, all made by him. Also, made the splash screen. Have fun with that.
SuperEgg - Half-Filipino: I've done everything else.
This hack is about a guy who doesn't give a shit about protecting any of them, and they fucking live in this country, and none of them are bothered by this, yet you choose to be so whiny about it. I even said I fucking hate this guy with a bloody passion, and yet this does not bother me one bit, and we are talking about a guy who picked a VP that would love to see my basic human rights stripped if he could (for me being an atheist). So get the fuck out of here with that shit about people and yourself being upset about this hack. If you can't take a fucking joke then get off the fucking internet, because all of us are going to have to deal with Trump for the next 4 years (especially for those of us who actually live in the states).
