SaxPython: Hey chat. Hope you're all having lovely days.
Juliamon: Mine's fine. Went on a snack stock-up run, bought bran flakes.
GapFiller: mmm bran
SaxPython: popcorn has been my recent goto
TehAmelie: brans are good, but i like branes more
Juliamon: My gums hate popcorn, alas
Juliamon: hulls are magnetically attracted to them
KeytarCat: My gums just hate ME
KeytarCat: I need to see a dentist...
KeytarCat: Wait, where are my pronouns?
KeytarCat: oh, just a reload, nvm
Juliamon: They're showing for me
Juliamon: Twitch just does that sometimes
TehAmelie: people make fun of dentists as pretend-doctors until it turns out Alzheimer's, the cause of over one third of old age dementia cases, is caused by the bacteria that makes tour gums soft wandering from the mouth to the brain
GapFiller: this little conv may or may not have inspired me to take a selfie just now of my teeth in all their yellow and black glory
TehAmelie: i don't know if they're completely sure of the science there yet, but still, better brush your teeth
GapFiller: children this is what a lifetime diet of the breakfast of champions can do for you

KeytarCat: I started flossing well this year, and most of my teeth agree with it. The one that doesn't is also sticking out at a funky angle, so the gum receding to a healthy level leaves the base sliiiightly exposed
KeytarCat: Respect the 1v1
Mangledpixel: boop

Mangledpixel: time to use a honey-covered yoyo to retrieve scraps of fabric from a tree
BusTed: Classic.
TehAmelie: you heard it here first: no one wants VR
GirlPainting: goth evening
GirlPainting: so, what is this game? what can you tell us about it?
Piratical_tendancies: yeah off is better personally
princess_intell: hey there
TehAmelie: no one wants motion blur, and this time i'm not even joking
RomanGoro: I'm already feeling like this is one of those streams where I ahve to stop watching because I want to play it myself
GirlPainting: i am indifferent towards motion blurr, but can not speak for everyone
polluxr: I was about to say that people are either indifferent or against motion blur
BusTed: big ups
SnackPak_: 10/10 puzzle game
princess_intell: my first impulse in a game is to break everything until something happens

Mangledpixel: BIRF
polluxr: it's ugly baby
noSmokeFire: someone pranked the hell out of those statues
RomanGoro: How The Witness is this game?
GirlPainting: what is this game?
TehAmelie: it's motion blur, depth of field, and then potentially bloom and anti-aliasing. on the list of features that should be turned off by default but never are

Juliamon: TehAmelie But with 90% less vertigo
polluxr: very unsatisfying xD
RomanGoro: It's more a stand on the tip of your feet than a jump
Stormgod519: Cheers Cori!
TehAmelie: there is that, for people with vertigo
Laserbeaks_Fury: DAWN OF THE FIRST DAY
GirlPainting: have you jumped in real life?...your not that far off ^^
Stormgod519: You're just bending your knees as you walk around and every so often you stand up straight
noSmokeFire: maybe you're just slouching a lot and your "jump" is just straightening your back
TehAmelie: is that meant to be a child?
Stormgod519: that's some good air there Cori

SnackPak_: FBtouchdown
polluxr: first blood?
reptile___: I'm getting definite Witness vibes from this game
GirlPainting: so cory, can you give us some insight into the game? who developed it? what it it all about? you know, the talking simultor part ^^
princess_intell: what kind of game is this-- roguelike, rpg, puzzle, etc? is that a spoiler?
Juliamon: We think it's a Myst-like
princess_intell: cool
noSmokeFire: this seems more linear than myst so far, unless we're just stuck in tutorial land
Laserbeaks_Fury: Darn, I thought that was going to be an advanced technique
polluxr: it's nice that there doesn't seem to be a range to it, but at the same time it's weird to use it to recharge like that
roastbeefsandwitch: So a rather pretty Portal
TehAmelie: definitely way, way less vertiginous than Manifold Garden. and it has what we might call a more mainstream appeal in its art direction
Stormgod519: "simple" this game says
polluxr: not much of a puzzle when you simply use the statue as a buffer, but let's see what they bring up later
noSmokeFire: watch it throw a curveball and introduce real time combat
Laserbeaks_Fury: Portal?
GirlPainting: so, anchient portal....gotcha
Mischievous_Catgeist: so no cake
TehAmelie: but where is the sassy AI?
GirlPainting: TehAmelie we are?
Laserbeaks_Fury: No range on statue?
GirlPainting: ^^
Laserbeaks_Fury: sweet
Stormgod519: clean

Stormgod519: oh no
noSmokeFire: ruhroh
Stormgod519: thank god
princess_intell: lrrGREED
MrVirite: I feel like leap-frogging is not the intention...
MrVirite: oh well
princess_intell: am i the only one waiting for something to.... happen?
Juliamon: I think you'll be disappointed if you are
princess_intell: oh oka
Juliamon: This is a chill game
princess_intell: *okay
princess_intell: i just wasn't sure what to expect coming into this
GirlPainting: the game feels like a portal esk puzzle game. the art style is nice and all....but somewhat i feel something is missing.....there is no charm to it in my opinion
GirlPainting: it needs a glados
FITorion: you don't have to be in dark to cross... just to activate the crossing
princess_intell: this doesn't seem like a very long game
princess_intell: not a complaint, just an observation
princess_intell: i like the harp. more games should utilize the harp.
Juliamon: Sometimes people want a simple, pretty, harmless puzzle game.
princess_intell: of course
polluxr: I like the harp too, but the tune is getting a bit old lol
Lord_Hosk: You know what else you could make a kid do?
Lord_Hosk: Play with lego
polluxr: FITorion probably got it
Lord_Hosk: in the nice cool basement
noSmokeFire: @polluxr "play freebird!"
vellebastet: lrrHEART
TheMerricat: Came in late chat, is this 'just' a puzzle game or are we in the middle of a puzzle section?
Juliamon: TheMerricat The former
TehAmelie: doing the same things but expecting different results? i think we have a saying about that
aquinas_0: hmm, my son just speed blitz building an entry level gundam, now I need nippers
aquinas_0: anyone have opinions
princess_intell: i like the color palette a whole lot
princess_intell: @aquinas_0 wait for next thursday, ask ian/ttsf chat
TehAmelie: !findquote blitz
LRRbot: Could not find any matching quotes.
princess_intell: best i got
Laserbeaks_Fury: ahh this will be where los comes into play

TehAmelie: buh
aquinas_0: @princess_intell this is a good opinion
56 raiders from GoodDayInternet have joined!
roastbeefsandwitch: can you swap with the statue whist on the harp platform?
polluxr: now thinking about it this seems like if Superhot and Portal had a baby given how the entire mechanic is based on the number of steps
princess_intell: @LoadingReadyRun off topic, but do you know what nippers ian uses on gundam?
Juliamon: princess_intell He uses God Hands
beowuuf: nah
princess_intell: that then
TehAmelie: g'day internet
Juliamon: They are kinda pricey though
princess_intell: thanks cori!
beowuuf: sergeHi raiders
Laserbeaks_Fury: I think you just walk youself around with the harp again
TehAmelie: so this is a funky Returnal mod huh
princess_intell: good lord, that
princess_intell: that's the price of a luxury foundation
Nigouki: the famous God Hands are the SPN-120 model with the blue handles. They make a slightly cheaper but also slightly more durable with thicker blades PN-120 model with the red handles
Nigouki: there have also come a lot of other "single blade nippers" onto the market in the last decade so you can shop around
TheMerricat: These are the 'red handle' nippers - https://www.amazon.com/GodHand-GH-PN-120-Hand-Plier-PN-120/dp/B00U6U0WCU
princess_intell: how old is the kid? might not be quite worth buying $60 nippers for someone who may or may not be serious about the hobby
TehAmelie: funny story, when i worked at the dismantling department of the recycling plant, diagonal cutters were basically god hands, or rather just regular hands that you used for everything
Laserbeaks_Fury: I choose to believe the jump saved it
Nigouki: there is quite a few cheap entry nippers out there, even specifically kid sized ones
quatoria: @TehAmelie you mean dikes?
KeytarCat: Maybe you get a shiny as a pet!
princess_intell: maybe they have an all-in-one kit online somewhere?
TehAmelie: they are also called wire cutters
Laserbeaks_Fury: We have breached the 3rd seal
Nigouki: God Hands are definitely a specialized tool with a Buy Once, Cry Once price that's mostly to have convenience and efficiency once you're way into the hobby. They're not really an entry level tool.
LordZarano: 17 triangles total?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Stupid Tax
princess_intell: i like the idea of "buy once, cry once"
princess_intell: time to rise up and eat the rich
Laserbeaks_Fury: For Sale: 1 Child. Has Worn Shoes Once.
KeytarCat: @Nigouki I just use the wire cutters that came with my toolbox or nail clippers, but I don't do anything that would benefit from Godhands more than once a year :P
princess_intell: my guess: something something we adopt the blindfolds of the powerful, something something then blindly pay upper classes for our labor
MrVirite: it's almost full!
TehAmelie: i rather prefer the idea of using basic diagonal pliers in place of the vaunted god hands. might not give perfect results in cutting gunpla pieces, but they're good for everything
TehAmelie: really kind of like using your own hands, but harder and sharper. one might call it. . .the hands of god
KeytarCat: @TehAmelie 🤯
polluxr: probably because that's not the intended way
Laserbeaks_Fury: what happens when WE are in the duplicator?
princess_intell: grey goo scenario?
polluxr: that would make for a horrifying prospect if it duplicated us and we saw the other dissipate hahaha
Jovh11: What happens if you put the duplicate in the other duplicator?
princess_intell: what's the person version of a gray goo scenario
princess_intell: aka the paperclip problem
Jovh11: Hateful truly
TehAmelie: when a person becomes charming enough that everyone copies them?
KeytarCat: @princess_intell Malthusian economics? Some Major BS?
princess_intell: @KeytarCat my money's on BS
polluxr: I think you were closest to the answer the first time around
FITorion: Can activate music while in dark, run out of dark... and still able to cross while in light
Laserbeaks_Fury: But maybe start the sawp at the lock
polluxr: A-> duplicator, walk to the button, then button-> duplicated
LordZarano: @FITorion There's a gate after the bridge though right?
polluxr: ?
FITorion: you have enough
Laserbeaks_Fury: The hapr works out of darkness if its started
polluxr: you don't need to be in the dark to walk in the activated harp thingy
FITorion: activate in dark, cross in light
TehAmelie: or are we thinking more like the Dollhouse scenario, where someone creates the technology to copy their personality and memories and starts using it to overwrite the people around them, not because it benefits anyone but just because of that person's ego?
FITorion: there we are
Laserbeaks_Fury: All a cording to plan
princess_intell: *plan means kekaiku
KeytarCat: @TehAmelie Someone willing to copy themselves into other people would create a feedback loop of people willing to copy themselves into other people?
Laserbeaks_Fury: yeah that was.. a little reduntant
TehAmelie: i would use the term ego singularity, but it's probably just semantics
Laserbeaks_Fury: That just SOMA
KeytarCat: That works, I like it! Ego Singularity doesn't need sci-fi, just needs dystopia!
polluxr: it's also been a while since the last time we saw lore-statues
TehAmelie: it's actuallt just the plot of Dollhouse, the masterpeice of Joss Whedon's strictly limited creative endeavors
KeytarCat: @TehAmelie I don't remember enough of that show, evidently!
polluxr: well played
polluxr: dollhouse was pretty good
Laserbeaks_Fury: Alomst there
KeytarCat: I know I enjoyed it :P
polluxr: stupid plant thingies u_u
KeytarCat: Star over, good stream
princess_intell: off to the war with you
princess_intell: also crank that
TehAmelie: really any one or even two shows of Joss Whedon's are excellent, in a vacuum. it's just when you start looking at them in the context of all the other shows he's made that they get boring and samey
polluxr: @TehAmelie oh, absolutely
RandomTrivia: And is it anything to do with airline food? lrrBEEJ
polluxr: time to grab snacks
TehAmelie: i recommend seeing Dollhouse and Dr Horrible and then stopping. yes, Firefly didn't make the cut
princess_intell: i also recommend the musical commentary for dr horrible, even if only as a novelty
TehAmelie: that one is definitel6y a thing no one else has done
Drew_64: @TehAmelie but if you dont watch firefly how can you be performatively outraged at the one fandom joke?
princess_intell: what joke?
princess_intell: sold him to The War
Laserbeaks_Fury: Ahh so this is a BLIND playthrough
TehAmelie: any parents %
Mischievous_Catgeist: we better book it
SnackPak_: F
polluxr: jump on book?
RandomTrivia: benginO7
Laserbeaks_Fury: Maybe it's suppoed to be a koan
princess_intell: my only guess is that this is about how the powers that be blind us to the evils of war and economic inequality
polluxr: WAKE UP
TehAmelie: why do we want to waken statues? seems like a weeping angels situation that we can avoid
KeytarCat: I liked most pieces of Firefly, but it sure didn't get to tell any story long enough to say something new. Also a transbian thing for me, I think? Not sure, but it holds the same energy as other media that's absolutely related to my current identity
princess_intell: @TehAmelie i guess the only solution is to never blink then. blink and we're dead. etc.
Laserbeaks_Fury: Can we get two relics if we duplicate?
TehAmelie: or practice blinking one eye at a time
polluxr: the "duplicator" is more like a quantum state enabler where the thingy is at two places at once
polluxr: HAHAHAH
polluxr: the instinct to jump into the hole
RandomTrivia: jlrrFall
RandomTrivia: It's not the desire to jump, it's the desire to *fall*
polluxr: the triforce piece
polluxr: can you remove the triangle right after activating the harp?
tyrsredritehand: sergeFall
Laserbeaks_Fury: yup
RandomTrivia: Ah
KeytarCat: Well that sure is a mechanical interaction
RandomTrivia: Oh dear
FITorion: dark
RandomTrivia: Oh that's sensible design
FITorion: look at the gap in the dark. bet there is a bridge
Laserbeaks_Fury: did we see a bridge in the dark world
polluxr: uh oh
Mischievous_Catgeist: time to die
princess_intell: aarp?
FITorion: might have goozeled yourself now
RandomTrivia: Oh no
KeytarCat: Aim for the wing?
RandomTrivia: No-one saw that
polluxr: that's an overlook by the devs imo, even if there's a reset button
polluxr: :O
Thandres: orb friend vibing over there :o
polluxr: evil wisp
Laserbeaks_Fury: If we leave the statue active and hit the harp just before we leave the dark world?
KeytarCat: This looks pretty grid-based, so it might have been a technical LOS thing. We had our line through the harp's square the entire time
polluxr: ???
polluxr: hahaha
RandomTrivia: HypeLUL
KeytarCat: My head has no silence
Jovh11: This Gangster's Paradise?
Piratical_tendancies: mmm fortune cookie wisdom

KeytarCat: Puddle-jumping Librarian, the Stargate-Librarians crossover
polluxr: I wonder if the allegory of the blindfold has a deeper meaning given how you were born without it and given one as you were sent to "school" /hm
KeytarCat: @polluxr Pretty much exactly my experience with Capitalism
PMAvers: I guess?
KeytarCat: cripes, this is dark and heavy handed
Laserbeaks_Fury: A mind is an empty glass that requires water. Existence is Thirsty.
polluxr: I mean, it says painted OR tainted, so not necessarily saying it's a bad thing, but yeah
KeytarCat: @Laserbeaks_Fury Yes, sold, can I sign up for the newsletter
FITorion: did that giant statue not have a head?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Are we going to talk about the large man chained to the wall?
FITorion: nope head is there
KeytarCat: @polluxr Did it specify white canvas? expressing color makes it worse, imo
Laserbeaks_Fury: And....release
polluxr: oh, yeah, it still feels weird/bad
KeytarCat: Same puzzle, but again, so you know to carry the crystal through?
polluxr: hahahaha
Jovh11: And yet you can look up a walkthrough for this game checkmate scroll writiers
Laserbeaks_Fury: But, if I have seen farther, is was on the shoulder of giants!
Himyul: following directions is clearly not even trying
polluxr: you can follow the successes too
KeytarCat: All of these are weird or bad
polluxr: it feels like it says "don't follow blindly" and "don't follow at all, just try by yourself over and over"
shendaras: Isn't that really the basis of education -- to learn from others failures and follow their successes to build on?
Laserbeaks_Fury: Don't use a walkthrough, just get gud
KeytarCat: This is like stuff your Grandfather told your dad, and now when he says them everyone changes the subject

kusinohki: I've shaped myself into a pear...
SK__Ren: Nah, I don't think so. Unrelated, I feel better now.
Jovh11: I feel like my uncertainty was quelled by how I shaped my waterfall drinking statues
RandomTrivia: Were these scrolls written by 4-year olds on a sugar high? :D

TehAmelie: Looney Tunes?

kusinohki: only been here like 5 min, but I'm getting some Talos Principle vibes??
Laserbeaks_Fury: You're not the only one
polluxr: i think you were right the first time around since the beam stayed after you removed the gem somehow
KeytarCat: Railgun Cori
polluxr: Totally spies? hahaha
polluxr: oh, I see
Laserbeaks_Fury: seems like we're mising a peice somewhere
KeytarCat: God yes, Totally Spies is the birthplace of all my kink
polluxr: there was a whole tumblr post about Totally spies being a weird show about fetishes
BrowneePoints: all I remember is that episode where a Dutch or swiss villain wanted to take over the world by making everyone fat off cookies or something
BrowneePoints: the writers definitely frequented A03 or something LUL
Laserbeaks_Fury: mee too
KeytarCat: Don't these work like tractor beams? Is that a mechanic we've explored yet?
polluxr: can you cross them at another place?
Jovh11: When you removed the relic from on statue I noticed it stays on as long as you don't leave the beam
Robot_Bones: Engage your jet pack
Jovh11: I feel like that has something to do with it
Invitare: I have lots of ideas. None of them good.
BloodnBullets: maybe have them point at their opposite gaps?
Laserbeaks_Fury: See if theres anything to interact with on the second part of the path?
polluxr: you can only rotate them to 3 positions each?
KeytarCat: @Jovh11 Oh, that's got it for me
SeasonalBard: Yeah, @Jovh11 is on the right path.
Laserbeaks_Fury: okay that was weird
polluxr: oh, the beam stays
polluxr: it was much simpler
polluxr: but not intuitive
KeytarCat: That's real neat, and the next puzzles are gonna be WEIRD
polluxr: hm, maybe now you need to point something backwards?
SaxPython: Heather? Rhythm Cafe?
polluxr: wow, ok

Laserbeaks_Fury: Games like Talos and Witness used quotes like this to put people in unusual frames of mind so they can see the puzzles at weird angles. But here it feels just arbitrary nonsense
Laserbeaks_Fury: ih the statue blocks the beam, that is good to know
ReynardWrecca: Good evening everyone. Hope you're well Cori.
