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.
This paragraph alone shows how fucking little you know about the contest and the general populace.
For starters, if you think this hack stinks more than the others submitted, then you're fucking delusional and probably means you didn't actually play it. The only reason you don't like it is because it is Trump themed in nature, and thus means it isn't worth the time of playing because once again, "lol politcs." Fucking hate to say it, and I don't want to toot my own horn, this hack has literally all the shit we were looking for.
New level art: Check
New comprehensive layouts that have multiple pathways that have goodies through the upper and lower paths and convened back to the center path towards the end: Check
New badnik art: Check...sorta, I mean adding sombreros to badniks is not technically hard to do, but it definitely isn't easy either =V
Reading through the chats when this was being presented, there were a few people weary of the hack, because lol politics. However, a good majority enjoyed the humor of it because sombreros on enemies is fucking hysterical. Hell, the only reason I decided to finish it was because I've had a number of people ask if they could play it. So, I did a final build in Sonic 1 before I migrated to my own custom S2B disasm, and then let you people run wild with it.
Now, as far as people not coming back in droves next year? You're a fucking dumbass if you honestly believe a one off joke hack can just kill a number of people returning. This thing was shown on three, maybe four streams at most, and this is what defines the contest? A harmless hack that apparently awakens the white guilt in people, as I'm yet to find any Latinos offended.
I've had SonicBoom, who is half-Mexican and the guy who designed said sombrero sprites and Trump screen, let various people in his family play this, no complaints. Hell, most can't stop laughing. I've let various people on campus of Latino decent play this, and I've made sure they're the biggest Democrats around to ensure no biased opinions are formed, and guess what? Most found it funny, or meh at best. Offensive? It has a Trump screen at the front and some signs that spin. So, some eye rolls, and ah "Oh boy, here we go." If they aren't offended, why are you?
Disgustng? Did I make the robots actual Mexican people? Did I allow Sonic to kill them?
No. Get over yourself.
@Ell678 I didn't have time to program in the wall for DHZ. The boss would still be Eggman's wrecking ball schtick, but you would be on the wall. The wall is so many blocks high, and each of Eggman's swings take down a block. Like I said, I have since migrated the project over, so I'll get around to it soon enough.
@Aersol, as far as supporting Trump, all I will say is that I voted him, and that's about it. Doesn't mean I like him, but I hate him less over the other three. Also, I guess you need a sombrero.
