CAKHost: Thomas Was Alone had some great shapes.
TehAmelie: i vaguely remember that name
Metric_Furlong: it's a game, had shapes in it
CAKHost: It was a great little platformer in the early 2000s. It made me feel things.
CAKHost: It just now occurred to me how long ago Thomas Was Alone was
Metric_Furlong: I think I still have the Vita version
CAKHost: Okay it was probably around 2012 when I played it but to think it is now over 10 years old is... A Thing That Happened
Metric_Furlong: time marches on

CAKHost: Oookay, I don't mind the sound reseting to nearly muted when it goes to a new ad but now i need to make sure Twitch doesn't nearly mute the stream when it comes back on.
CAKHost: I'm on desktop for Twitch, Fyi
ghyllnox: -_- I just watched ads a minute ago Twitch, why do I need to watch them again
jessieimproved: so is the stream ridiculously quiet right now?
LoadingReadyRun: huh yeah
CAKHost: I can't hear any music, but I sometime have problems with that
jessieimproved: the music is there, it's soooo quiet
Boopity: @CAKHost It's just extremely quiet, at least to me
ghyllnox: There's music, it's just not super loud
LidofLoathing: me, too
LidofLoathing: I can barely hear it
CAKHost: I listen without headphones and I have a fan running so I sometimes miss quiet sounds.
CAKHost: *listen on speakers, I should say
TheAinMAP: lrrDOTS lrrCIRCLE lrrARROW lrrCAMERON lrrCORI
jessieimproved: now the volume seems ok
PixelArtDragon: Out of curiosity, which LRR members have their wisdom teeth? I'm trying to calculate which stream is the "wisest"
CAKHost: Well, soundbar... I guess if I want to be acurate to the product description
SnackPak_: lrrFINE
LidofLoathing: you sound fine
ghyllnox: Well the intro seems good
Metric_Furlong: lrrFINE
CAKHost: I can hear the intro and you!
LordZarano: All is normal lrrFINE
OneViolence: *snaps*
CAKHost: And Cameron's snaps
jessieimproved: Cori and Cam are very Cori and Cam and the world is in order
Boopity: Didn't we have audio issues last week as well? LUL Talking Sim is cursed
SnackPak_: FBtouchdown
CAKHost: Let the demons out for a walk
CAKHost: :P
GreatWahooney: hello!
Metric_Furlong: Cori's House Of Lies it is then Kappa
CAKHost: But I have sewing supplies near by! D:
Metric_Furlong: yes, "england"
TheVoxtric: Ireland
ArkhamArchivist: But if I learn about history, I won't be doomed to repeat it!
GreatWahooney: Derry Girls is spectacular, I've been recommending the heck out of it to everyone
jmasm_95: it is weird, I like this game
GhostofJeffGoldblum: man, remember Spore?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: that sure was a vidoe game
CAKHost: Spore? >.>
Boopity: BIG TUBE
noSmokeFire: so a rolling pin
Boopity: LUL
GreatWahooney: heck yeah commence the flattening
CAKHost: CAMERON NO
jessieimproved: or...is it
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh, another menu with pleasing bass
ghyllnox: Well good news, we have sound
SpoonfullOfSugar: well, the sound...is
GreatWahooney: Cylinder Aggressiveness? :o
ghyllnox: Cam *did* ask the cylinder to flatten him, he just maybe didn't expect it to be through audio
GreatWahooney: are we getting chased by the titular Cylinder?
KV1NN4: ack i'm late what have i missed? DL
KV1NN4: D:
SpacePotato01: How can an eternal thing have an age?
CAKHost: Babies
CAKHost: ?
BrindleBoar: easy to load into a trebuchet
They_Are_Alyx: @KV1NN4 We just started
Metric_Furlong: this is a weird Zoombinis reboot Kappa
TheVoxtric: you're the furtive pygmy
GhostofJeffGoldblum: it's a Benjamin Button
Boopity: @SpacePotato01 I guess in a way, most of them just stop counting once it gets old
LordZarano: "Some"?
CAKHost: See baby birbs
EricTheOrange: ALL babies are just ugly
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Cameron: no.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: emphatically no.
jessieimproved: A lot of babies are wrinkly and weird when born <-- exhibit a
GreatWahooney: I personally loved Picard 3
SnackPak_: woof
SpacePotato01: I guess
Boopity: Oh my god, immediately I see the spore vibes
LordZarano: escher3DOOT
lackingsanity: Abe's fetal oddysee
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh god
GhostofJeffGoldblum: the cylinder
GhostofJeffGoldblum: it's so eternal
LathosTiran: grey goo apocalypse?
Boopity: Look at the eternality of that cylinder
Decaped: For whom does the Cylinder rolll, it rolls for thee.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh, we're an kirby
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh we're literally an kirby
Darleysam: have to say I absolutely love ACE Team's aesthetics
TheThirdTail: Hm, I'm not sure if this thing is supposed to give baku vibes, but that's what I'm getting
CAKHost: eat its young(?)
Invitare: imagine eating through your nose
GreatWahooney: so we get abilities by ingesting material harvested from other creatures? like in... Evolva?
CAKHost: FROG
jmasm_95: lorge
CAKHost: We are frog now
GhostofJeffGoldblum: absolute unit
LessIsMorii: Just arrived to hear... fart-sounding footsteps? ๐Ÿ˜…
CAKHost: My brain did "get in my trunk" and now I need to think a moment
BrindleBoar: fartsteps
dumbo3k: moments into this, and i already want to replay spore
LessIsMorii: @BrindleBoar ๐Ÿ‘ Well-played, mate
GhostofJeffGoldblum: "yes...this is a video game"
CAKHost: D:
Invitare: Rolling around at the speed of sound
Critterbot: Boing boing boing! :D
Boopity: Are we Sisyphus?
Invitare: got places to go got to follow my way now
GhostofJeffGoldblum: I love him
niccus: like a reheated blobfish
LegionLoyalist: Ah, cylinder is contained. Everything is fine now
Invitare: And Stanley was happy.
OneViolence: Mouf
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh, hello Wheeler
CAKHost: So this planet has a giant cylinder that is just rolling over it all the time?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh no
Critterbot: WutFace
GhostofJeffGoldblum: egg not friendly repeat NOT friendly
CAKHost: MOUTH
GreatWahooney: excellent question
GreatWahooney: next question
GhostofJeffGoldblum: thisn is all I want
LegionLoyalist: Did this become one of a very specific type of anime?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: to be a round little trumpet guy
noSmokeFire: trumpet! bwah!
CAKHost: I fart in your general direction!
Boopity: Oooh this music is nice
Boopity: Oh my god that face
EricTheOrange: that orb baby is very pug like
Boopity: Weird dog
TehAmelie: this is a very odd game. i think i like it
CAKHost: I've seen dogs with that face
CAKHost: Can we jump over the Cylinder?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Sebastian. My beautiful son.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Or daughter. Or enby.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: probably more than one, really.
TehAmelie: bit like that one Eve Online ripoff where you drive robots around a planet, but fun
LegionLoyalist: @GhostofJeffGoldblum Our Beautiful Orb
noSmokeFire: slug, but house
EricTheOrange: my guess would be non binary by our standards. They may have their own genders but they probably wouldn't correspond to our own
EricTheOrange: baby just wanna do a licky
noSmokeFire: agreed: not a lloyd
GhostofJeffGoldblum: yeah like that species in The Player of Games that has 3 genders, all required for reproduction
TehAmelie: remember the genders of No Man's Sky animals? orthagonal and whatnot
GreatWahooney: can we inherit flyingness from the flying thingies?

GreatWahooney: Shrimpy!
KeytarCat: Tames Jurner
Boopity: Mom, look I'm on TV!
Invitare: we can die first now!
GhostofJeffGoldblum: god they really do look like Qbert, don't they
LegionLoyalist: Q-Cumber... the most paranoid of all vegtables
EricTheOrange: do we deflate if we spit out all our stuff?
TehAmelie: me, now remembering i have played Qbert for a total of maybe 10 minutes. probably more like 3
LegionLoyalist: Can chat be thrown into the gourd?
bytecaster: Honestly, I should make some food
TehAmelie: *fake nerd*
KeytarCat: Can you change party leader?
LegionLoyalist: So I guess then all Chat can do is watch your adventure? Is this Meta?
TehAmelie: is this meta? pff. Chat is here. meta is where it starts
accountmadeforants: This is the combination of Spore and Bear Simulator I've been waiting for.
GreatWahooney: we sit upon a golden throne!
Decaped: This inviting plant mouth sure looks harmless!
Invitare: Emperor of Trebhumkind
TehAmelie: if this is a Sporelike, can we make ourselves an animal with no eyes or legs that just blobs around hoping for food to come near it?
Invitare: eggs seem like a bad strategy on a world with a giant crushing cylinder
KeytarCat: That...works
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Beej?
Mischievous_Catgeist: egg turner
toomanybears: big dave
EricTheOrange: so are we gathering these trebum like pikmin?
accountmadeforants: Trebhums have a unique physiology that does not clip like normal creatures do.
bytecaster: @accountmadeforants They must be great at speedruns
GreatWahooney: Q-ueue?
LegionLoyalist: Q-linary?
accountmadeforants: Q-Q
KeytarCat: Oh man, this is a great Talking Sim game
PixelArtDragon: If we look like Qbert, maybe we can also have Stack-bert and Heap-bert
ghyllnox: Q-anon Kappa
Invitare: so you get arms presumably

CryptiEX: Honestly without spoiling some later parts might be too scared for kids
CryptiEX: scary*
Mischievous_Catgeist: you can be us!
GreatWahooney: we not only evolve, but also get a squad, and each member can specialise its evolutions? this is so totally Evolva
LegionLoyalist: Q-mulus cloud
Boopity: UMMMM
KeytarCat: hehehehe
TehAmelie: organicube
GhostofJeffGoldblum: all hail the perfectly square beef
TehAmelie: hail Generic Meat Object
HuggsBroson: it looks like my digestive track feels like
TheThirdTail: "Gives you water" and "Gives you food" are surprisingly distressing descriptions somehow
ChrisGMiller: sounds like the first step in a physics problem. "assume a orgainic cube..."
accountmadeforants: Listen, an intestine is super long and has a lot of surface area, it'd be wasteful *not* to write things on and in it. And then we just had to pack it efficiently for storage... all perfectly reasonable.
TehAmelie: i mean, if you had a well, you would not describe it as something that "gives you water"
LordZarano: Lost Vikingebhums
GreatWahooney: yum
coachNelly: Whatup my weird anteater frens
Boopity: GOTY
noSmokeFire: become as cube!
KeytarCat: I love this game
TehAmelie: you will not go to space today, that's my prediction
Edgarware: CUBE
Mischievous_Catgeist: the square goes in the round hole
bytecaster: Can we be cube?
PixelArtDragon: That's right, you go in the square hole!
Boopity: Welcome @coachNelly This game is weird
flouncy_magooo: Just got here. Were these creatures created in the Spore Creature Creator?
FreaQU: Now its a cube-cumber
coachNelly: Iโ€™m loving it
Rourke9: nice
TehAmelie: they do look fairly Spore-ish
TheAinMAP: braven10PRISM
coachNelly: Into the square hole you go
TehAmelie: and the world looks very No Man's Sky
TehAmelie: but i have confidence this game is doing something new
bytecaster: A skill-tree, if you will?
theawesomeonev2: Aww I didn't realise talking sim was on. Have I missed anything important/funny?
coachNelly: Shudders in dnd 3.5
Rourke9: bye yoda
accountmadeforants: They drain your Insight! The villains!
TehAmelie: "it was a time of war. isn't it always?"
GhostofJeffGoldblum: he's such a great little guy
laundreydhull: B is a tender... Mimic really.
5 raiders from Weslyphon have joined!
laundreydhull: That's how I'm interpreting said droid.
KeytarCat: I watched Cube recently, at Cam's recommendation
Silver_Slip: wow, no man's sky looks different than i remember
TehAmelie: Cube is a flawless movie. timeless. horrible and true
RaginCaucaJhin: #notalltowers
Boopity: Qube died NOOOO
Edgarware: noooo
coachNelly: Nope nope nope nope nope nope
Critterbot: D:
goatprince: I can't believe you let them die
Mischievous_Catgeist: our ohana !
PixelArtDragon: RIP Qube, we hardly knew ye
Invitare: Nooo! We were supposed to be first! It should have been Chat!!!
GhostofJeffGoldblum: oh fuck
Mischievous_Catgeist: we died!
GhostofJeffGoldblum: we're dead
They_Are_Alyx: RIP us
Edgarware: everyone is dead!
coachNelly: Chat died tooo???
TheAinMAP: lrrWOW
bytecaster: We died :O
niccus: rules of nature baby
Rourke9: This narration is very Zoombinis in the *best* way
TehAmelie: chat, you were the chosen one! why could you not have been the one to fill our dark soul with LIIIGHT
RaginCaucaJhin: "Facing a new portal, Cube chose the doorway on the Right"
Rourke9: how many skill points to evolve murder
bytecaster: We have sharp edges now, that must count for something, right?
SpacePotato01: well first you gotta meditate
TehAmelie: oops, i went Devil May Cry there
Rourke9: :O
Boopity: LUL
Robot_Bones: This town's finished
Boopity: Can the cylinder exact revenge in our place
BalthusHomewood: Remember, the correct volume to have this stream at is = ฯ€r2h
SpoonfullOfSugar: how square roll?
Boopity: @SpoonfullOfSugar Don't worry about it
LordZarano: @SpoonfullOfSugar Very well
BalthusHomewood: @spoonfullofsugar edgily
BalthusHomewood: Tis a hot rod
Boopity: "Found themselves"
Rourke9: cori too good at video game
Juliamon: "no speedruns"
Invitare: on the bright side, the thing that killed all the others is now sqaushed
TehAmelie: i felt like such a turbonerd the other day when i just "knew" the formula for a cylinder's area and approximated the answer in my head as soon as a math question was posed
Boopity: Eternal Cylinder world record holder Coriander Dickinson
Invitare: Behold! MAN
RaginCaucaJhin: To be fair, if anyone is Enby, this qubert knockoff definitely is
BalthusHomewood: Ummmm
PixelArtDragon: But what if the cylinder isn't evil, but a natural part of the world?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: one of its legs is two other legs
Critterbot: Hooman! WutFace
PixelArtDragon: This is VERY spore
Boopity: Is this like a fractal leg? LUL
Stratavarius: I'd hate to displace my 2nd hip
GreatWahooney: fractal leg!
BalthusHomewood: Guy couldn't dance very well, he had 3 left feet
RaginCaucaJhin: Hey Cam, does this count as a Binary Tree? If so, how would you reverse it
BalthusHomewood: I feel like I made something like this cuby boi in Spore
Lord_Hosk: say excuse me after you tute
Rourke9: oooh fancy
BalthusHomewood: Minecraft Dirt Block's Revenge
Boopity: Deadly farts
BalthusHomewood: Fus Roh Doot
bytecaster: Maybe the memory cluster was stored in "qube"?
Invitare: snek
bytecaster: Towers, markers on a map, this is assassins creed.
TehAmelie: these sparkling particles and the enthusiastic voiceover reminds me of a certin W+P game
Boopity: Am we become god?
LegionLoyalist: Can you see through it, or is the Third Eye Blind?
TehAmelie: note: on a galactic trading level, pearl and amber should be nearly infinitely more valuable than things like diamond and gold
SkylerRingtail: Toot Turtle!
LordZarano: Chitinous!
TehAmelie: cause they need organic life to make them
Invitare: it's that thing from that anime about Titans
Invitare: oh yeah you're not supposed to drink distilled water
Invitare: exclusively anyway
Boopity: At least Sebastians are still alive
GreatWahooney: hungy!
bytecaster: "your party"
Boopity: Me every day
GreatWahooney: referring to myself as a party is a great idea, it will make me feel better about eating a whole pizza on my own
Bugberry: now this feels like Spore
Boopity: When does this become a top down RTS? Kappa
bytecaster: Right before it becomes a 4X
TehAmelie: remember, to anyone out there, you are a second if not a third party
bytecaster: Can we disable the water extractor?
Invitare: no no, there's the city builder stage before it becomes a 4x
LegionLoyalist: So after Third Eye Blind started, now we've established "Jumper"
Mischievous_Catgeist: chat 2.0
SkylerRingtail: chatGPTwo
bytecaster: Better than before, stronger, smarter
TehAmelie: chat is all its iterations, concurrently
Invitare: it's not that hard to be better than Chat
Mischievous_Catgeist: chat 2 electric boogie
CururuGuasu: Donโ€™t be like Chat3
LegionLoyalist: It's like Rata-two-ee... but with orbs
laundreydhull: @skylerringtail oh, that upsets me. Oh, oh no no no no.
Invitare: ~don't be a f r a i d~
TehAmelie: you mean the Disney movie Racacoonie?
UpstageJMC: I was about to say that Cori. ;)
Mischievous_Catgeist: if only we had family
Boopity: We have communal upgrades
EricTheOrange: one day we'll find it. The stompy conection.
GreatWahooney: how dare
LegionLoyalist: 1 hour from now, "Don't worry Chat 58, we will keep you safe"
niccus: that's how you know you're having a fun time
EricTheOrange: can we drink some lava and become warm
Boopity: Loving the sense of exploration and "what the hell is that?" in this game so far
KeytarCat: Ohg, they roll by licking their goo shells!
GhostofJeffGoldblum: what a sentence you've created, KeytarCatr
laundreydhull: Anyone else hear distant chirps?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: is that what we're calling it now
TehAmelie: enjoy some victory commercials
Boopity: LUL
KeytarCat: I played up to the next zone, I think. I hope it stays good!
TehAmelie: we are winning, right? i can't tell
Boopity: Yeah, totally. Chat is still alive
dumbo3k: well, we've had no losses, so that's absolutely winning
TehAmelie: pop quiz, chat. assume a cylinder, 3 km wide, 18 km long. approximate its surface area. you have 7 seconds.
LegionLoyalist: Big
Juliamon: I refruse
TehAmelie: close enough
LessIsMorii: I eat the cylinder instead?
LegionLoyalist: Slightly smaller than gargantuan, but larger than small
Mischievous_Catgeist: its the size of the cylinder
SkylerRingtail: First, assume a cylindrical cow...
Juliamon: I climb onto the cylinder and recreate the Logdriver's Waltz
LessIsMorii: Yesss! That waltz reference tho!
Boopity: LRR chat thinks outside the box
TehAmelie: i like these answers much more than math, i tell ya
Earthenone: !box
LRRbot: In the box is: Yorri
CryptiEX: 49.5 pi
CryptiEX: At least I think, might've messed up the math somewher
KeytarCat: something like 124 km?
frnknstn: just got here, has anyone made a "if you cylinder lasts more than..." joke?
Boopity: I don't think so
KeytarCat: oop, more like 169 :dab:
LessIsMorii: Niiiiiiiiiice
TehAmelie: well, the serious answer would be close to 180 square km, but the time limit is long past so
TehAmelie: ahoy
accountmadeforants: @KeytarCat Miss the ends, I assume?
A_Dub888: the Cylindry Creme
KeytarCat: @KeytarCat Oh yeah, I was counting rolling area
KeytarCat: @TehAmelie I just wanted to see if I could do it in my head.
Mischievous_Catgeist: 420
TehAmelie: it's good to flex your head
kusinohki: meows
Boopity: Can we smoke the cylinder?
LessIsMorii: Enjoying this game's music
TehAmelie: probably the best thing to do with it

accountmadeforants: I also tried to do it in my head, remembered the math, then the 7 seconds were up and I'm not getting paid for doing overtime :p
CryptiEX: Circumference of a circle is pi * d = 3pi, area of a rectangle is b*h = 18 * 3pi = 54pi, add 2pir^2 for the two ends of the cylinder = 4.5pi, total is 58.5pi
CururuGuasu: Muscle Car
Boopity: Let's free it!
accountmadeforants: Ooh, fingies
kusinohki: what kind of game is this? and why walk when you can roll?
KeytarCat: saaaame
LessIsMorii: Oooooooh
Boopity: @kusinohki Honestly I still have no idea, and I've been here the whole time
KeytarCat: I bet we'll find a rupee drop a t the top
niccus: love to wake up mystery creatures with loud noises
Mischievous_Catgeist: dont let chat die
niccus: never led to consequences
Tehbeard: is this game a meta-commentary on Spore and the relationship between creator and created?
LessIsMorii: lrrHORN lrrHORN lrrHORN

Boopity: Only chat lives here now
A_Dub888: All will be chat
BloodnBullets: what is this insanity I have wandered into?
gsyhiap: Time to avenge!
bytecaster: When you are chat, you are never alone
GreatWahooney: Chat be like: We are the streamer now
accountmadeforants: Roll, roll, fight the power!
Boopity: We were too worried about Chat that we forgot to save ourselves!
GhostofJeffGoldblum: truly this is the Dark Souls of cylinder-based roguelikes
Boopity: Chat has so much to live for!
GhostofJeffGoldblum: flattened
Invitare: pancake
gsyhiap: F
GhostofJeffGoldblum: mattlrDed
Boopity: DEADED
KeytarCat: Oh there is a fail state
Boopity: We're back!
TheAinMAP: guyjudgeO7
Tehbeard: is it time or distance that awakens the cylinder to roll once more?
KeytarCat: eyyy, we found it!
Boopity: Whaaat :O
Boopity: There they are :(
Invitare: "You told me there was no Chat 1"
Boopity: LUL
TheVoxtric: this is excellent
Boopity: Imagine cloud saving your family
Boopity: Send others upstate
CryptiEX: @Tehbeard Each area has a protective dome around it, leaving the dome causes the cylinder to go
kusinohki: imagine cloud saving aerith...
Boopity: "Hey I'm back" *instantly dies to the same creature again*
CAKHost: Is that an attack orb?
LessIsMorii: That burp timing, wow
Boopity: LUL
GreatWahooney: Trebhums roll out!
LordZarano: !advice
LRRbot: Fire is not a kickable substance.
TehAmelie: okay this seriously looks like a No Man's Sky world, not to criticize, it's just funky
Boopity: Chat nooo :(
Boopity: Hurbis
Invitare: When Stanley came to a pair of 2 towers, he entered the tower on his left.
TehAmelie: the balls of metal mesh really cinches it
TehAmelie: or is it metal or bone or what?
KeytarCat: starting the save by getting squished was a bad omen
BloodnBullets: is that wall of fire the "cylinder"?
on_and_awful: We tried to excape but we poison missed our chance
KeytarCat: @BloodnBullets Indeed!
TehAmelie: are we inside a Halo-style space cylinder? if that's gonna be a reveal the title sort of spoiled it
TehAmelie: ooh this is like the planet Crematoria in Riddick
kusinohki: don't you just hate being the weakest link of the food chain...
Boopity: The more units we have, the more we can sacrifice! Kappa
TheVoxtric: these are my new favorite pikmin
TehAmelie: outrace the sun. come to think, the actual game Race the Sun may be interesting to people here
KeytarCat: You can survive the low path if you don't get stompy before
SkylerRingtail: I kinda want to see this cylinder gimmick with a survivalcraft/basebuilding game. Everything you make will be destroyed, in time. Very Zen
GreatWahooney: what are those sky avocados :o
KeytarCat: Blue refills stamina
KeytarCat: @GreatWahooney yes
TehAmelie: mm, i would like an astral avocado. with just a pinch of salt
BloodnBullets: so does leaving the ring summon the cylinder?
niccus: yeah, it's a safety ring
kusinohki: so blue = good green = bad...
niccus: imagine if this game had monster energy partnership like death stranding
Boopity: Woo! First try!
KeytarCat: Chat made it!
bytecaster: See, that is one advantage of a smaller family. Less snacks needed!
BloodnBullets: so that seems to imply the cylinder is explicitly hunting us....
TehAmelie: "another wooden ball. wowie. would it kill the avocado devs to put in ONE other toy, even once?"
Boopity: I am absolutely loving the world and its presentation so far
accountmadeforants: Oh no, we died! For the first time!
A_Dub888: lrrFINE
kristian_fischer: Definitely not gonna be struck by lightning any time soon...
TehAmelie: this feels like the lightning dodging game in FFX
kristian_fischer: This is such a bizarre game. I kinda love it.
TehAmelie: be ready to press A
TheVoxtric: they really wanted this lightning to sound crackly huh
TStodden: The upside is that the cylinder is moving slower than before... so you're not running for your life (more jogging / speedwalking).
KeytarCat: @TStodden Keeping pace!
Boopity: Yeah, that lightning sounds like me learning about compressors for the first time LUL
TehAmelie: Cameron's tummy had an additional opinion
GreatWahooney: lrrFINE
beckstromsavestheday: You are awesome
GhostofJeffGoldblum: "history is my name for the enormous metal tube that's crushing the world bit by bit" "is that, like, a metaphor?" "oh i assure you the enormous metal tube is very real."

jmasm_95: the big guys do that
lackingsanity: you don't have the filter trunk yet in this autosave

Calaban161: I get Spore vibes
BloodnBullets: cover shooter time! wheres the waist high walls?
TehAmelie: in a cosmic catastrophe kind of vibe
Boopity: I love that our tongue is just flopping everywhere during this
TehAmelie: almost like Goat Simulator
BloodnBullets: they said it couldnt see directly in front of it
LessIsMorii: Now I'm imagining a mod where that goat replaces the cute little main character ๐Ÿ˜†
TehAmelie: i was thinking a Goat Sim mod that recreates this world
Boopity: LUL
TehAmelie: hi Cameron!
Boopity: I hope Cameron survives
niccus: time to measure cameron's lifespan
spiffinn: i am worried that cameron is not immune to poisno
bytecaster: I'm looking forward to meeting Cameron2 later

Boopity: Cameron's just happy to be here
bytecaster: Wasn't there water underneath Frampt?
TehAmelie: have any of you played that idle goose game where you create the universe using only your own tears, pee and spit?
bytecaster: @TehAmelie No, but tell me more!
Rourke9: @TehAmelie The Barnacle Goose Experiment
TehAmelie: that's it
Rourke9: It didnt capture me fully in execution, but it has some interesting ideas :)
Rourke9: i liked it overall
TehAmelie: ditto
Boopity: Cameron in the safe zone :)
bytecaster: Don't upload your family to the cloud!
Boopity: Listen, considering our track record, it was probably the best thing to do
spiffinn: why music?
Silver_Slip: i bring my own boss music
CAKHost: XD
TehAmelie: i am kind of disappointed actually my life has never had a scene with boss music
Boopity: Good thing these eggs are so resillient
Boopity: Gatekeep Girlboss Gasboy
TehAmelie: *fart noises*
BloodnBullets: IndepenDan
SquareDotCube: Beano
TehAmelie: Oglaf
Mollylele: the noid
Boopity: Fantastic
TheVoxtric: grapefruit
Rourke9: qube flavor
niccus: blackcurrant
BloodnBullets: Orange? It's orange right?
gsyhiap: Mmm, tastes like Trebhum
on_and_awful: keyser soze flavor soda
TehAmelie: haha it would be rad if Keyser Soze showed up in this place without warning
SquareDotCube: and if we dehydrate Grape they can join the California Raisins
gsyhiap: ๐Ÿ’ก
niccus: attained power of: glowstick
bytecaster: Should we make our whole family glowy?
TehAmelie: RHCP have written like 190 songs on the topic of California. i think there was a joke here but i forgot
SquareDotCube: And it's the demo level IIRC
niccus: is there a game that's just nonstop Library
SquareDotCube: aw, we didn't get magic
spiffinn: i think you only need 1 cube and then the door will open?
bytecaster: It is important for efficiency that our family stacks!
TehAmelie: platform puzzles worthy of Soul Reaver (1996)
KeytarCat: Oh no, this could be a Serge game
GreatWahooney: heh, doody
TehAmelie: that sounded mean. i'm really encutened with this game
KeytarCat: Hold the change button to choose
Boopity: Oh no, we lost our kid at walmart
BloodnBullets: dont have flea legs
TheMerricat: @loadingreadyrun might want to close the door unless you want us to listen to Graham and Kathleen's conversation.
DrLigmaPhD: I have only just arrived. It appears we are a waddling fart machine exploring a cave.
ContingentCat: you can do both
KeytarCat: We have revives!

bytecaster: Cubinization comes for us all.
DrLigmaPhD: Resistance is... Equal on all faces
TehAmelie: perhaps i should walk in other places
GreatWahooney: weeee!
DrLigmaPhD: The cubes evoke All Tomorrows body-horror
lackingsanity: Did either of you play Zeno Clash?
BloodnBullets: might be worth spreading some glowy around?
accountmadeforants: And the Elder replied: Git gud.
Boopity: Uhhh, didn't we see a spooky big lad behind the cylinder?
bytecaster: Our Trebhum is making biscuits while listening to the elder.
TehAmelie: sommercials!
DrLigmaPhD: Ok, so my joke about being a fart machine was just that, but how else are these lil guys gonna float/move in the air?
Boopity: Honestly this game has been incredibly esoteric so far, so I'm just along for the ride
TehAmelie: me, i'm still not over this picture of a fire at Disneyland the other day https://i.imgur.com/sAQw4x3.png
Boopity: Whoa... that looks rad.
TehAmelie: no one was hurt, i'm told. just the dragon Maleficient getting dragged to hell in real life
Rourke9: My understanding is that even before the fire, the dragon was named Murphy... after Murphy's Law
Rourke9: and was very often not working
TehAmelie: oho
Rourke9: RIP Murphy
TehAmelie: welcome back
Boopity: Whoa, James is packing!? Kappa
Invitare: Stanley Parable
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Biomutant?
Boopity: Yeah, with the narration
TehAmelie: Stephen Fry was always a meat cube, i suppose
Invitare: I don't think it's the same, but he has the same cadence
johnhelix: It sounds exactly like the Biomutant narrator.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Yeah I think it may be the same person
Boopity: The loading screen is very cute as well
TehAmelie: for the record, the narrator is definitely not Stephen Fry, i can tell that much
TheMerricat: Voice actreter Hayden
TheMerricat: Actor even
niccus: terrifying time to hesitate
TheMerricat: Holy cow phone, voice actor is Peter Hayden.
YTfriendofsquirrel: bushinKappa bushinKappa bushinKappa
Boopity: We were right there BibleThump
TehAmelie: we got steamrolled by air
spiffinn: easy mistake to fix at least
Boopity: Wow, thanks game LUL
BloodnBullets: do you have to go through the tower? is passed it not an option?
niccus: early on they tell you to stand on the symbol to activate it, yeah
TehAmelie: this all DOES feel really procedural, akin to Spore or No Man's Sky. are we gonna visit more planets?
KeytarCat: @BloodnBullets You have to activate the tower to stop the cylinder
BloodnBullets: oh ok
BloodnBullets: thanks chat
Spades_Slicc: How's the cylinder?
niccus: unscathed
EricTheOrange: fuzzy cube
Rourke9: time is hard
Boopity: LUL
gsyhiap: LUL
TheMerricat: Time is an illusion Cameron.
Boopity: What is time even at this point
GhostofJeffGoldblum: We've all been there Cam.
TehAmelie: did you not get up during that break either? mood
SquareDotCube: happens to the best of us\
TheVoxtric: me anytime I'm even a little bit warm
niccus: sometimes you take a break but your mind is hustling
gsyhiap: lrrGREED
A_Dub888: lrrGREED
EricTheOrange: as barry would say camera goes on and all thoughts leave your head.
DrLigmaPhD: Hey I just had the terrible realization their proboscis could prolapse and I need y'all to suffer with me
EricTheOrange: so whats the flag on the cylinder starting to roll agaon. Is it time or does the last pillar break at a certain distance away from it?
bytecaster: Isn't it nice when our family is alive?
LathosTiran: everything is fine if you devolve your pain center to nothingness
KeytarCat: each rock gives an eighth of a shimmer stone
KeytarCat: Or so
DrLigmaPhD: Built like a shit brickhouse
spiffinn: more left i am afraid
spiffinn: we'll see i guess
spiffinn: we endded up heading for the right tower from the left side of the field
EricTheOrange: logically couldn't you just like dig a deep hole and let it roll over you?
A_Dub888: Cylinder's really flooring it
jessicaengle: To the left, to the left
Spades_Slicc: Cylinder's on a roll
CAKHost: The Cylider activated turbo
niccus: the cylinder also flattens the land, i'm afraid
niccus: just. complete flattening and depilation
SpacePotato01: cube form should come with a defensive bonus in case large things step on you
GhostofJeffGoldblum: You went to the further right one last time.
A_Dub888: FBtouchdown
azninsect: FBtouchdown
CAKHost: \o/
LathosTiran: the world has a cam shaft?
CAKHost: Uh
EricTheOrange: is this game partially proceduraly generated? it gives me that kind of vibe.
CAKHost: Hi?
bytecaster: How dare they!
Boopity: Oh no, not math!
EricTheOrange: ah yes math. the true evil
Invitare: mini cylinders
KeytarCat: @EricTheOrange I don't think so, the start looked like what I played
CAKHost: Oh no, math!
niccus: smaller, marginally less lethal cylinders
DrLigmaPhD: Alright, time to kill math, consequences be incalculable
GhostofJeffGoldblum: It looks like that and it's called The Mathematician? That's a Destiny boss, is what it is
EricTheOrange: @KeytarCat it feels like it has premade set peices but some of the random tower runs might be randomized.
CAKHost: Actually, I'm sure that is a valley from Marble Madness
SquareDotCube: must be annoying having two butts
TheMerricat: A quick Google says that the eternal cylinder is using procedural generation.
Rourke9: @EricTheOrange trees etc are very often procedurally generated in games these days, but not in the 'new every time' way. I dont see anything else that stands out to me in particular?
Rourke9: puzzles are very hard to generate and very easy to mess up with procedural stuff
TStodden: Got a Red Boundary... there's something we must complete before proceeding...
CAKHost: Doggo thingies!
DrLigmaPhD: We seem to be living on a moon
SquareDotCube: Certainly reminds me of Spore. And I didn't play Spore
niccus: what if you die to a log trap
DrLigmaPhD: CHONK
CAKHost: Lorge
TheMerricat: I think it's the alienness of it but The vibe of this game reminds me so much of the feeling that I had when I first played Morrowind.
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Beer gut? No, no, this is grain storage facility.
Rourke9: procedural generation is Hard and unless a game really needs to for a specific purpose it's usually better to avoid it (said with so much love for proc gen)
SquareDotCube: become dump truck
TStodden: You do have to wonder how big this world is if it can have this killer cylinder rolling over it for eons...
TheMerricat: Think the implication is this isn't the only planet that has been crushed by the cylinder.
TStodden: True...
SquareDotCube: not enough flip flapping sounds from the feet
Rourke9: maybe the mathematician loves Spheres (or as it may be, Cylinders)
Rourke9: wants to make the world more Platonic
CAKHost: What if the Cylinder is just rolling out AstroTurf? Some Aliens need a lot of it for their Alien Golfing.
TehAmelie: i only began to form the thought "let's piss on this nice old planet that we live on" but then i realized that's just real life
Rourke9: inflation
DrLigmaPhD: Megamind
SK__Ren: Float, not fly
Rourke9: oh this is just like in sonic! search 'sonic inflation' to learn more
Rourke9: (dont do that)
TehAmelie: but then, our squirting water out of our nose is maybe not even peeing
A_Dub888: We
A_Dub888: We're a secret agent?
gualdhar: @Rourke9 ah yes, the inevitable slide to inflation. I was wondering how long it would take
spiffinn: must all be hot air balloons for them to not die?
TehAmelie: Elden Ring (2022)
niccus: if we're lucky we can send the rest to the cloud first
BloodnBullets: errr do you need to floaty the whole tribe?
TehAmelie: hey guys (er)
LathosTiran: mantled with the big booty
DrLigmaPhD: I love how they move

TehAmelie: (gottem)
spiffinn: how many friends remain?
Rourke9: @TehAmelie incredible prank
Invitare: won't that get you over the cylinder?
spiffinn: oh! everyone made it
Boopity: Oh hey, there he is, in the cloud
A_Dub888: We live!
Dog_of_Myth: That tracks
TheMerricat: We are a virtual fire hose of wisdom
empyreon: riffYeti
Calaban161: We are hosed
lackingsanity: i don't love looking at the hose trunk personally
KeytarCat: Hold the button to choose member
TehAmelie: can we make "virtual fire hose of wisdom" our official title?
EricTheOrange: we can spray the streamer like were traing a pet.
TStodden: Cam is just camping out on The Cloud...
EricTheOrange: It feels very spore
Rourke9: Zoombinis is the big thing for me, with the narrator
LathosTiran: band CD experiances
Darleysam: the devs have such a great art style for all their games
lackingsanity: Zeno Clash, the first game from this dev, would make a great talking sim game imo
TehAmelie: yet, it looks extremely like any one out of 20 planets in No Man's Sky
SkylerRingtail: Videogames before they regressed to the capitalist mean?
GhostofJeffGoldblum: Very early Maxis "fuck it, let's throw shit at the wall and see what digitally sticks."
EricTheOrange: it gives me some early CD rom game vibes. Like I imagine a 3 second Tiny screen early CG cutscene showing one of them being birthed from an egg.
KeytarCat: Aren't we supposed to go over the cylinder?
KeytarCat: We have a good gyser
EricTheOrange: @KeytarCat if we did that I missed it?
DrLigmaPhD: Find the straightest line and boogie
TStodden: Red Boundary... will burn you until you solve the mystery.
EricTheOrange: well that's what the narrorator said, they said if we were gonna go to the other side of the cylinder wee'd need a very stationary gyser.

GhostofJeffGoldblum: Oh shit, the Vex
SK__Ren: Toland?
KeytarCat: Witness-ass motherfucker
niccus: alright, hope you brought the right gun to clear the hairy ball again
DistractedMOSFET: How's the narration been in this? I know Jonas Kyratzes (Talos Principle, The Sea Will Claim Everything) did some writing for it.
EricTheOrange: I feel like it's gonna turn out that the cylinder is some kind of terraforming device meant to wipe the land clean before turning it into earth 2
EricTheOrange: or earth 235 as it may be.
the_tarabyte: well that's exceedingly trippy
Spades_Slicc: Perhaps even earth 1
DrLigmaPhD: OK so we don't have time to unpack that
TheMerricat: Thank you narrator-san for explaining that cuz that was completely unnovious
SkylerRingtail: "And they found nothing, because of light pollution"
land_manatee: What am I looking at?
niccus: math itself
the_tarabyte: Did the trebum remember how to do math?
EricTheOrange: their was like a petrified terbuhm their?
CAKHost: Time to Kill Math?
SkylerRingtail: Prometheus x Sisyphus
EricTheOrange: so what did we learn? it said we learned a skill.
TStodden: What's the point of money when there's nothing to buy?
Spades_Slicc: We learned how to not do or care about math
iarethel0ser: I missed everything but because math world I assume we learned calculus.

EricTheOrange: our non furry family are gonna die out here
CAKHost: Friends?

CAKHost: Also is that snow or glitter?
Spades_Slicc: @CAKHost eys
gsyhiap: NomNom NomNom NomNom
A_Dub888: Noccupado
GhostofJeffGoldblum: It has a very stream of consciousness, dream logic feel to it.
land_manatee: Coming into the middle of this is very confusing.
Rourke9: for sure
LordZarano: So the cylinder is a metaphor for death, right?
bytecaster: Play, in my game? In this economy?
KeytarCat: The creature design is sporish, but the gameplay is like Three Vikings plus "open" world
DrLigmaPhD: What the Mathematician is is my biggest question so far
KeytarCat: Like I've said, Survival squad management adventure
Rourke9: the narrator reminded me of the Zoombinis narrator, in a good way
Rourke9: optimistic, encouraging
KeytarCat: A Hopeful Armageddon story is always nice
KeytarCat: I hope later dungeons have bigger puzzles that require multiple mutations
KeytarCat: *mutually exclusive mutations
niccus: flat earth extremism of "i'll make it flat myself"
TheMerricat: I'm assuming they haven't gotten to the part where they found out the purpose of the cylinder
SkylerRingtail: The cylinder concept doesn't seem to mesh with the Spore-creature gameplay. I'd have liked to see the cylinder gimmick explored in a survival crafting/base building game
DrLigmaPhD: A cylinder that creates a UNIFORM surface on this world of extreme variation
KeytarCat: @SkylerRingtail Just a general Colonialism metaphor would serve the same purpose and probably lend the story more credence
KeytarCat: Yeah, it doesn't make you feel powerless but it makes you powerless
Rourke9: yea the mechanics didnt end up... combining a lot? they did the one thing they were supposed to do, not a lot of opportunity to play with the systems
DrLigmaPhD: It's a game that makes you "Huh..."
Rourke9: I like the creature aesthetic a lot yea
SK__Ren: looks like q-bert
KeytarCat: Whimsical Critter design
Juliamon: The cylinder feels like 'the circle' in shrinking-circle battle royales, where it doesn't really make any sense and is purely a mechanical construct to keep you moving
ContingentCat: braven10HEX

Mischievous_Catgeist: cat geese 10/10
niccus: it might not look like it, but the orange line in lrr's live page is actually a giant cylinder
ContingentCat: @jessieimproved plus it opens the door
LordZarano: I'm kidding, the 24-cell scares and confuses me
Rourke9: thanks for stream! that was nice :)
DrLigmaPhD: Is Frankenfruity not the title of the book?
TheAinMAP: Thank you for streaming.
Rourke9: can we give Iron Man a floppy trunk
