LordZarano: Even food that is supposed to be opened by hand often have faulty pulltabs or whatever
TehAmelie: i miss working at the dissassembly department of the recycling plant
TehAmelie: where i learned to treat diagonal cutters like a part of my hand
TehAmelie: somewhat stiff and inflexible, but much harder and sharper than fingers of flesh
Juliamon: I got up and got scissors and let me tell you, it was worth it
TehAmelie: hooray
TehAmelie: wish i had some kind of corn based snack right now. but a drop of whiskey is largely the same i guess
Juliamon: they're Korean fried chicken flavor
TehAmelie: scottish whiskey, i guess that's not corn based. but still
Juliamon: this is basically as close as I can get to actual Korean fried chicken here, sigh
Juliamon: so I can't speak to accuracy, but they're tasty

TehAmelie: and i like it

Rourke9: Fall of the House of Usher vibes a bit
TehAmelie: just started rereading the Southern Reach books so now i'm having very strange associations
GhostValv: on the plus side, I don't think anything built will last for a long time :)
Rourke9: I've been hyped for this game on Talking Sim for months, I'm so excited
Eggmojii: I just see you're always with a notebook and I've been wondering
gualdhar: @ghostvalv depends on the definition of long time

Laserbeaks_Fury: shout out to the Lorem ipsum
noSmokeFire: "latex simps" are different
SnackPak_: Spanish for the text
TehAmelie: any visually disabled people in chat have any preferences?
KeytarCat: I always go OpenDyslexic
KeytarCat: It's dubious science, but it's better than comic sans
TheMerricat: @GapFiller And you've just introduced me to the concept of sacrifice zones... thank you.
Rourke9: The sounds in this game are delightful
TehAmelie: wait did this oil company show up in The Dark Tower?
Rourke9: Yea I like the writing in this one, and I predict Cam will too
Lysander_salamander: Hello everyone!
SnackPak_: very similar vibe
Eggmojii: wow okay hooked
TehAmelie: i must report your voices are about the same level as the music
Juliamon: Lysander_salamander Welcome, good timing, we JUST started the game!
Lysander_salamander: neat
Mollylele: listen America is a wasteland all over
Lysander_salamander: not all of it, just a noticeable portion of it
Dmc3628: oil derricks
Laserbeaks_Fury: Do Not Bring Your Evil Here
Rourke9: I like how it immediately has you contextualize yourself within this place
Lysander_salamander: oh, neat
Laserbeaks_Fury: ohhh, this evokes Great Gatsby for me
Lysander_salamander: this is rough
Athelgar: I am concerned about the sky DIo
Mushbie: "Far out beyond the tank-farm fence where the gas flare makes no sound"
Rourke9: It's very Eyes of TJ Ekelbury (sp.)
Rourke9: @Mushbie reminds me of that too
Lysander_salamander: whoa
TehAmelie: somehow feels a bit like Hardcoded (has that been put on Twitch's short list of banned games yet?)
Ctabbe: its north south, not sure otherwise
xerjen: Circle Autobahn around Munich... :D
Rourke9: Along the west coast
Pteraspidomorphi: I read a thing once about how you can tell where it is from the numbers and I forgot all of it
Utopos: It's a weird segmented one in the mid-Atlantic, IIRC
Laserbeaks_Fury: aren't odd numbers N-S, or am I imagining that convention
EverettORiley: I think there are a lot of them. I live on the west coast and we have a highway 99.
Spades_Slicc: North-South
BlindProphet32: odd are north south, even east west
Mushbie: @TehAmelie it must be, given how sex focused it is. it's good tho
Rourke9: California through Washington
Utopos: If it's the I-99 anyway
TehAmelie: indeed
SnackPak_: Louisiana Highway 99 (LA 99) is a state highway located in southwestern Louisiana. It runs 32.44 miles (52.21 km) in a north–south direction from LA 14 west of Lake Arthur to U.S. Highway 190 (US 190) east of Kinder.
Lysander_salamander: apparrently it's New york to Pensylvania?
Spades_Slicc: Calexico Cali to Blaine Washington
Manae: Highway 99 or Interstate 99?
Mushbie: "Memes Jack"
Rourke9: 'The 99' is wonderfully ambiguous
Rourke9: it could be anywhere
Juliamon: We know this explicitly is Louisiana though
gualdhar: interstate 99 is definitely N/S in PA
gualdhar: Higher odd numbers are on the east coast
Rourke9: @Juliamon but its in the context of them traveling throughout the US
Eggmojii: it said CA 99
LordZarano: It said CA 99 at the bottom of the screen
Rourke9: ah, interesting
TheMerricat: "Louisiana Highway 99 (LA 99) is a state highway located in southwestern Louisiana. It runs 32.44 miles (52.21 km) in a north–south direction from LA 14 west of Lake Arthur to U.S. Highway 190 (US 190) east of Kinder. The highway bisects the sparsely populated Jefferson Davis Parish as it zigzags along rural section line roads. Roughly halfway along its route, LA 99 passes through the town of Welsh and an interchange with Interstate 10 (I-10), the region's main east–west highway."
Juliamon: ah, I missed the CA
Eggmojii: every "frame" has changed the location. this is cool.
gualdhar: ah now I see
SnackPak_: CA 99 runs along Intersate 5 in California
Manae: I99 is a short one in PA/NY. US Rt99 is west-coast. But just route 99 is probably in a few states :P
TheMerricat: "State Route 99 (SR 99), commonly known as Highway 99 or, simply, as 99 (without any further designation), is a north–south state highway in the U.S. state of California, stretching almost the entire length of the Central Valley. From its southern end at Interstate 5 (I-5) near Wheeler Ridge to its northern end at SR 36 near Red Bluff, SR 99 goes through the densely populated eastern parts of the valley. Cities served include Bakersfield, Delano, Tulare, Visalia, Kingsburg, Selma, Fresno..."
ThatOverkillGuy: when i saw the game called NORCO i instantly thought this was a biclicing game
ThatOverkillGuy: based off the bike company
Laserbeaks_Fury: A-L-B-U-....querque!
Eggmojii: I don't think this is a cycling game
GhostValv: :|
BusTed: :)
Juliamon: TheMerricat While the info is appreciated, could you link these instead of posting paragraphs? It's getting very chat-cluttering
Nigouki: "ook ook, motherfucker" *stares*
Utopos: I sense that monkey has some resentment
Rourke9: I could have easily started you anywhere other than your childhood bedroom, but I like that it does. Good place to start a story
TehAmelie: my town, in the far, far north of Europe, gets the E-4 road going through it. i feel like the US interstate system is way more comprehensive than Europe's
TehAmelie: a mechanical monkey is always going to be a Stephen King reference, right?
Spades_Slicc: Are you infringing on rhythm cafe now?
TehAmelie: or is this a real monkey?
Lysander_salamander: yay

PBlackcoat: Do you need to pay Heather and Ian royalties?
EvilBadman: @tehamelie It's a little confusing since Interstate highways are the primary ones that travel state to state, but each state has smaller numbered highways and routes as well
Rourke9: @TehAmelie stuffed animal I believe
KeytarCat: wow, "You" has no sense of self at all
TehAmelie: close enough!
Rourke9: I think this way of doing a mind map is delightful
Laserbeaks_Fury: It's like connecting synapses
TehAmelie: we could see it as Disco Elysium's thought cabinet map, but more interactive
TehAmelie: (the full map of all the thoughts is not even visible anywhere in the game. but boy is it involved)
Rourke9: oh, Blake
Solipsody: You're basically asked to Yes-And with the computer. Not sure yet how I feel about doing an improv exercise with a visual novel for a partner.
TehAmelie: Ash Wednesday? what is that holiday anyway?
Rourke9: How very Catholic. Fits with Louisiana
Rourke9: @TehAmelie first day of lent. Start of the season of cleansing/penance
KeytarCat: @TehAmelie The start of Lent, the Catholic season of repentance, as I experienced it
TehAmelie: i thought it might be. but thanks
PBlackcoat: Oh god that *hurt* Cori
gualdhar: I feel like that might have actually happened post-Katrina
TehAmelie: i'm still trying to figure out that "teach us to care and not to care" bit

Lysander_salamander: oh boy
AnAnonymousCheerer: Anon100
TehAmelie: um when did we go SCP?
Lysander_salamander: hahahahaha
TheMerricat: scp
Solipsody: It's definitely a *chan.
Rourke9: I think Blake did a thread Necromancy
SocraticMethod: Do IDs repeat?
TehAmelie: i choose to read it as a chat room our character knows too well to think it needs explaining
Solipsody: @Rourke9 The darkest magic...
PBlackcoat: the green >> denote that it's in reply to..
TheMerricat: @SocraticMethod The ID's were the posters names.
kristian_fischer: Why would the company lie to us?
TehAmelie: the Company. heh. are we talkin about CIA or Weyland-Utani or a combination of the two?
PBlackcoat: this game evoked core memories of visiting my grandfather in LA every summer as a kid
kristian_fischer: @TehAmelie Yes
Gekyouryuu: I just noticed the stream tags
SocraticMethod: @SocraticMethod If it was chan-like then IDs don't repeat. If it was just a message board/IRC then they repeat
kristian_fischer: Horse James Will Buy Serge Ice Cream
TehAmelie: in Canadian!

Sarah_Serinde: Oh right, Serge changed that for a goof and then didn't even bother to change it back after :D
Solipsody: It's interesting that, although this is clearly (consciously) a lot like Disco Elysium, the presentation of static scenes to click rather than walking around makes it feel very different. Like, DE threw just as much narration at you but it *feels* like more reading here.
Sarah_Serinde: He wasn't even the one running the stream
Rourke9: Welcome to Immortality (2022)
TehAmelie: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 35:46.

PBlackcoat: the number of crucifixes in this house...
Rourke9: @PBlackcoat Louisiana is very Catholic
Juliamon: PBlackcoat Seems pretty normal for the deep south
TehAmelie: everyone who's read "it" now remembers the very justified fear of the laundry room
GhostValv: normal for Catholic households especially
PBlackcoat: @Rourke9 My grandfather lived in Metarie, I used to spend August there growing up. :)
Rourke9: <3
Rourke9: lovely fetch quest
PBlackcoat: it's also very differently catholic from the mexican side of my family, which was weird to me as a kid.
Spades_Slicc: Blake is younger than us yeah?
Pteraspidomorphi: Yes
Rourke9: that checks out. Catholic is, ironically, a biiig umbrella
BusTed: abscond with prybar

Spades_Slicc: Insert credit card
Rourke9: looks like you have a new mind map thing
Utopos: Surprise! The Virgin Mary was Alexa all along!
Rourke9: This game reminds me of Night in the Woods in some ways. Returning to a place with a lot of history, which you were hoping to leave behind
Solipsody: Who uses nailed to put up drywall?
GhostValv: cereal at the end of the bowl
Spades_Slicc: @Solipsody People who don't worry about floods
Juliamon: Drywall: designed to stay dry
PBlackcoat: But the place you left also no longer exists in any meaningful way
Rourke9: @PBlackcoat absolutely
Rourke9: and yet, in another sense it is unchanged

LackingSanity_: the grimiest 'buh buh buh' dialogue noise I've ever heard
PBlackcoat: jajajaja

Spades_Slicc: See - Ads? subliminal messaging
Pteraspidomorphi: "By the way, what's the name of this franchise again"
KeytarCat: Look at the gas station again?
Rourke9: Google says Fat City = business development district in Metairie, Louisiana

Spades_Slicc: Wait, how many LRRsfolk are from Prince George?
iris_of_ether: Even in Milwaukee, you used to get a blast of smell from the yeast and hops from the large brewery there
jessieimproved: Ooh, I can remember passing Brunswick, GA on the way to the beach ever summar, there is a huge paper mill

LordZarano: Carbon dioxide is less harmful and less dangerous than just venting methane
Rourke9: Yea, that's the comparison that always comes to mind for me too
Lord_Hosk: Are we still talking about the game?
laundreydhull: @rourke9 Until they founded a cult!
Lysander_salamander: one of those places back in the day where families would make money of tricking ships into running aground with false lighthouses
epsilon_vee: the foam that makes you wonder if it tastes like the inside of a crunchie bar

GhoulcallerV: small world, a friend of a friend made this game lol

Sogheim: have I stumbled into a vandermeer novel now?
Spades_Slicc: Or a barrier
Sogheim: and then your brain goes "whaaaaa?!" twenty minutes after you put the book down
Utopos: It's also another way of describing the Chevron logo that won't catch a lawsuit
GhoulcallerV: this is based on the actual massive refinery that you see when you cross that big bridge in the background
GhoulcallerV: im not sure who owns it
Spades_Slicc: Never talk to a cop Million
Spades_Slicc: you're a fugitive you should know this
Sogheim: goddamn this writing is good for this scene
Lysander_salamander: very moody
Utopos: I find it a little disconcerting that both the character and the dialogue portrait for the character blink, but not at the same time.
Spades_Slicc: Is that Blake face down?
Rourke9: Yea I love the writing for this game
Rourke9: the sounds add a lot
