MolaMolaphant: I will need to catch this in replays, but I'm very excited to watch y'all experience this. Played an early version at a showcase last year, and it seems incredibly your jam.
TheThromborax: When I hear that you play as an AI I have assumptions that don't appear to apply to this. interesting

RavingPenguin: Ooh, fungus is a super interesting first find
Driosenth: I wonder how how useful a depth measurement is on an alien planet. The pressure is probably more important if the gravity is significantly different than earth.

TStodden: Ethanol?

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh wait how many Os is it again
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: 1
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I might be wrong, it might be 6H for glucose
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: Hey there! These look like new knobs and dials for us to mess with
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: aha no it is glycerol
Despoiler98: c3h8o3 is glycerol
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: my bad
Dread_Pirate_Westley: Glucose is C6. Probably glycerol, but it could be some sort of ether.
Izthander: glucose is h6 glycerol is h8
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: honestly the 3 looks like a bracket to me >.>
Lightningbro: Ah, dang, I seem to be late. Well, either way. Time to pretend to be smart by watching Cameron be smart. XD

Despoiler98: this game makes me want to go play No Man's Sky so I can actually explore a world and SEE all these new plants instead of just dots :P

Despoiler98: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou the latest update they added organic ships that you can find eggs for and grow :D
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you know, forgetting all the good biological terminology and so on, as a scientist, what really sells this to me as a scientific game is the protagonist's process of observation, description, and revision.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: she could be describing complete pseudoscientific nonsense and I would still buy it because she's *behaving* the way a real scientist would.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: she does!
SajuukSjet: mmmm, gorgeous color palettes, light to dark change ++
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: XD that's also true "wow this is a very dangerous and potentially lethal WHAT IS THAT"
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the biologist has this constant awareness that she's in danger but that doesn't stop her from observing and attempting to make sense of everything around her, even though she knows it may not make any actual sense.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: that's how she deals with uncertainty.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: yeah exactly. if there's one thing this pandemic has been highlighting, it's a scientist's unusual comfort with and treatment of uncertainty.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Gliese 667Cc, BTW, is a real super-Earth exoplanet in the habitable zone of Gliese 667C (red dwarf)
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cameron I also had that problem until I got comfortable with the UI.
theambivalentagender: Shiny
xX_Before_The_Dawn_Xx: shiny!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: must touch the shiny
discflame: collect all the shinies
TeodorantZMX: VoHiYo what is this game about
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you are an AI guiding a biologist stranded on a strange, unexplored exoplanet.
Squalm: I just got here, what is going on?
Squalm: fun...
TeodorantZMX: this game looks like some sort of jonathan hickman future comic
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: figure out what's going on on the planet, and also why your biologist friendo was signaled to come here.
kat2kool: @TeodorantZMX lol, accurate
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: (speaking of alien biology, back to cleaning out Rasputin's basement :D )
TeodorantZMX: I wonder how long it will take after we colonize a planet with alien life for the Japanese to make alien sushi
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: The doctor named some things
TeodorantZMX: on a sidenote for the next heat death episode imma prepare some alien themed sushi
discflame: time to form an AI union to start receiving credit for these discoveries
Zalthia: I'm hungry
JakeKamas: I mean, she asked if you were alive and you said "No." so it makes some sense for her to claim all your deeds as her own
JakeKamas: okay not 'alive; bad statement on my part
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: that's another trait Ellery and the biologist share that I think is a good scientist trait you don't see in media enough: she does make both objective and subjective observations - she's not a logicbot - but she's careful to distinguish between them.
TStodden: Might need to find a way to refuel...
Despoiler98: whoa
PixelArtDragon: What are we doing in this game?
Juliamon: That was a MAWP
Zu_o: im glad it wasn't just me @Juliamon
nightwingmisthawk: Would you say this game is super hand holdy? One of the reviews I looked at said they didn’t like that.
TheThromborax: Kind of reminds me of Duskers but...not as horrifying
sir_jack_DB: OH YEAH
sir_jack_DB: I love that book
sir_jack_DB: weird Plutonian crystalsd
Despoiler98: *cocks gun* moons haunted
PixelArtDragon: Heresy!
TeodorantZMX: @LoadingReadyRun oaumoua asteroid too
TeodorantZMX: the one that is super long
discflame: Voyager was launched in the 60s/70s so I think that's plenty of time to get out to the far planets
niccus: Pale Blue Dot was 1990
sir_jack_DB: oh no, they took out all the art in the last edition D:
Ordsmed: Woo Space-diving!
Despoiler98: Voyager 2 passes Neptune in 1989 which was its last planetary pass
ContingentCat: what could go wrong
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: It's not like they can warn yo to stop
TheThromborax: It reminds me of a pair of speculative "documentaries" put together by the Discovery channel in the early 2000s. "Aliend World" and "The Future is Wild" The first one was about life on an alien world and the other was about life on earth thousands of years from now
iris_of_ether: Voyager 1 is apparently 13.7 billion miles out right now
Despoiler98: @iris_of_ether they have a live signal update website
KappaMangos: are you guys deep into the game or just started?
discflame: Alien Planet is probably one of my favorite speculative documentaries
iris_of_ether: Nice
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I want to apply to be the person who takes care of the Voyagers. In all seriousness. I randomly have the exact right combination of skills they need for it.
Shparky2197: !game
LRRbot: Currently playing: In Other Waters
niccus: the concept book is available separately
RockPusher: Something I stumbled upon last night that may appeal given the current conversation - The full press conference where the Pale Blue Dot image was presented among other Voyager updates
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I do appreciate that Dr. Vaas only names things after a certain amount of observation.
Despoiler98: @GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou Voy1 is going to run out of power this year Voy2 next year, there wont be anymore caretaking :(
thundercat2000: this looks interesting
thundercat2000: hi Cam
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: also Cameron unrelated but I just bipped over to check on Big Red and don't want to know how many triangles are on his warmap x_x
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: a very useful fast travel system
kusinohki: just tuned in... did this inspire last weeks game?
niccus: they were sort of developed in parallel
niccus: as far as earlier games go, there's stuff like Mu Cartographer, but i think it's more from a shared inspiration of topographical maps
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: How big of a thing are we? Are we like a diving suit or something bigger?
Despoiler98: yay squishies
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I think we're like armored/augmented diving suit size
iris_of_ether: Oh, that maybe explains why I was getting Mu Cartographer vibes??
Despoiler98: man I Wanna shrill sac
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: every so often you gotta shrillsac
RAICx: Netflix n shrill
Despoiler98: lewd
LordSaphni: you would be hammered if the drinking word was Stalks geeze rooKek
TacitusVigil: I think these singing stalks were in an episode of Stargate SG-1
JaysonMaxwell: I'd subscribe to "Cameron Reads Game Lore" ... this is surprisingly calming.
BecauseGnomes: This feels almost like a linguistic exercise, and it's very cool
Despoiler98: RETRACT!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh yeah that was my one minor nitpick with this game, and I know it was like a single-dev game so I'm not knocking it for it but....there are a decent number of typos.
raven534: @JaysonMaxwell It's even better with calming game music!
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the Bloom reminds me powerfully of Sunless Sea.
Juliamon: !break
LRRbot: Remember chat, break time for the streamer, means break time for YOU, so get up, stretch, walk about a bit, and maybe get a drink or go to the toilet. Don't forget to wash your hands!

RAICx: Jeez, typos everywhere

GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: now I'm curious though - what game did you play last time? I need new games to keep me from obsessing over possible ternary bunker lights.
TheMerricat: The idea now is we are an AI for a deep water suit with a human inside
Arararagi234: Cam's voice is so relaxing
samstergo: bruh wtf is this
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: I get that water's a good solvent for this sort of thing, but does it *have* to be a carbon cycle

scottishteddy676: hey cam hows u

TheMerricat: Just as a heads up for anyone who likes this game, Fellow Traveller's (the publisher) LudoNara is just wrapping up on Steam today. -
Raiz0k: I've just joined the stream and at least now I know to be happy I'm not fungiphobic.
TheMerricat is eying the clock to try to decide when they have to return their rental car and walk home in time to beat the thunderstorm that looks like it'll hit soon.
TheMerricat: dang it. /me isn't me?
Raiz0k: FWIW I got what you meant :).
bravejrl: Are you guys going to be picking up the outer worlds again? You said you would go back to it after Cam put more hours into it.
NotCainNorAbel: Hi back
Raiz0k: Keep the car. You don't want to deal with supercharged creepers ;p.
Raiz0k: (also, a thunderstrike in an auto is wayyyy more survivable in a car than on foot)
TheMerricat: Hehe I would but I it's two weeks past the return date, because I managed to slide down the stairs the day it was really suppose to be returned and haven't been able to do more than hobble around till today.
TheMerricat: Luckily Enterprise is more than happy to extend the rental but...
Raiz0k: Ah, crap, my sympathies :/. I assume there's some sort of two-week price jump?
Raiz0k: Wait, a bacterio-fungal commensal colony?
Raiz0k: It's Kefir World!
SquareDotCube: or always drunk
Raiz0k: Kefir *is* midly alcoholic....
TheMerricat: It was rented at a daily price so they just keep charging, but I charged it to my CC and the credit limit was purposefully set low on it so I'm worried it'll be rejected if I keep the car too long.
donuts_are_holy: hi

Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : Internet rano advice: just make sure you can't extend it I dunno', online? Neural integrity (not-being-shocked) is more important than losing a couple of bucks.
Raiz0k: *rando
Despoiler98: run away!!!!!
donuts_are_holy: Quick question for you Cam, do you know what music Graham uses for his Vlogs?
Raiz0k: Ah, the sound is unsettling.
TheMerricat: @CrazyZonie yeah Paul said the message highlights screws with his chat monitor script.
CrazyZonie: In the Words of Sir Robin the Brave: RUN AWAY!
CrazyZonie: @TheMerricat That sucks. Understandable, but still sucks.
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k :) thanks, the storm looks like it won't hit till after 6:30 so I'm planning on popping out at 6, should give me plenty of buffer space.
Despoiler98: eeeeewwww dont go in the yellow water
Despoiler98: its like touching yellow snow
CrazyZonie: Um. did Cam just infect a set of stalks?
Despoiler98: @CrazyZonie dont worry about it >>>
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat: np. If you can make it 30, and don't live in the mountains or in an another high-prevailing-winds area, you're good to go.
Despoiler98: Please tell me that Minae has become the Zerg Queen of fungal forests
CrazyZonie: @Despoiler98 Worried? Not me. But I am preparing the "For Shame" finger to wag at him
silvalunae: nice
RealGamerCow: lrrFINE
silvalunae: this looks neat
Raiz0k: So this game is basically Subnautica, but with the "elaborate graphics"<->"worldbuilding" slider turned to the right?
silvalunae: oddly satisfying
niccus: it's not really a survival game
donuts_are_holy: lrrCAMERON_TK
Despoiler98: not even close
CrazyZonie: Yeah, nothing like Subnautica.
Jasoman: It is like Subnatica meets Papers Please
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k the conceit is that we are an AI inside the suit of the doctor who is talking to us, she can't control the suit, so she needs us to control it and move her around.
MAPBoardgames: I'd classify this as a point-and-click adventure game
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: does the fungal cloud start to kill the not-yet-carcass we bring with us?
RealGamerCow: I'm really not a fan of "XYZ ripoff" for anything that isn't a legit ripoff shovelware.
Despoiler98: if an alien angler fish shows up I'm peacing right the fuck out O.O
TheMerricat: @Raiz0k since we are an AI, we don't see the world the way 'humans' do.
niccus: admittedly, having your face brushed with countless fungal stalks wouldn't be much more pleasant
RaklarLS: for a moment I thought it was the same from last week, with the studded leather submarine
SachielOne: Yeah, you haven't embedded an exosuit in the one mountain by saving and reloading on the surface.
Raiz0k: Ah, I thought I was missing something given chat's calls to evacuate, but I understand this was an "EVERYTHING IS FINE" moment.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : ah yes. The "normal" "humans".
CrazyZonie: @Despoiler98 You think angler fish are bad, Cymothoa exigua are nightmare fuel.
RaklarLS: eh.. not as bad as penguin teeth.
Despoiler98: @CrazyZonie why, why would you expose me to that......
CrazyZonie: @RaklarLS Really? Pretty sure a bug that eats and then replaces the tongue of fish is worse.
Raiz0k: BTW, I'm sure someone mentioned this before, but this really is one Hell of a whiplash after Descenders xD.
SachielOne: You didn't scan the spark colony things
CrazyZonie: @Despoiler98 Because I love occasional bouts of chaos? I donno
niccus: you're still descending here, just different kind
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: it's not the same as my Subnautica experience unless you've spent multiple hours building and upgrading high-tier equipment to fight what turns out to be a disguised turnback zone.
RaklarLS: @CrazyZonie as a visual, it's not as bad. but fuck parasites in general
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: Cameron have you analyzed any of the microbe colonies in the lab?
RaklarLS: i wonder what medium they use to keep them growing
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: oh I thnk you need to scan more in the wild first before she writes the taxonomy entry
CrazyZonie: @RaklarLS The second to last thing I want to see is a fish open their mouth and their "toungue" giving me a wink and a wave. The LAST think I want to see is that happening when I look in the mirror.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: you usually need to scan...6? 8? samples of a species to start the entry
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: It uses human fuel!? Why did we let her make this?
donuts_are_holy: lrrCAMERON_TK lrrCAMERON_TK
RaklarLS: @CrazyZonie you wouldn't like opening your mouth and seeing penguin teeth either haha
Raiz0k: The compass-style UI is a great way to reinforce player agency BTW.
CrazyZonie: @RaklarLS Eh, not really. I'd hate having to floss if I had penguin teeth. Also I don't think I'd make many dentist friends. But I wouldn't be disturbed by it. (And yes, I've seen pictures.)
theambivalentagender: Yeah I mean, penguin teeth are just penguin teeth, whereas a tongue parasite is a Problem
AegeusEvander: so how does this compare to nauticrawl?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the Bloom gives me powerful Sunless Sea vibes. It's Myceligaea all over again.
SachielOne: We in Bloom County now, boys. ACK!
Raiz0k: @CrazyZonie : are you talking about those tongue-eating isopodes?
RaklarLS: teeth down your throat is not a visual i'd like to see, honestly
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k Cymothoa exigua those.
CrazyZonie: So, yeah.
Despoiler98: Wait its green now are we deeper or something?
niccus: we're in anoxic waters!
RaklarLS: water, with no oxygen. Hm.
Despoiler98: oh nooooooo
TheMerricat: Heading out chat, enjoy the rest of the stream. Have fun with the game Cam and Cori! :-)
CrazyZonie: @TheMerricat Bon "Viagies"
RaklarLS: bye @TheMerricat ´
TStodden: We're still 20 meters under the water...& have been in that range for some time...
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: @TheMerricat gods speed
Raiz0k: @CrazyZonie : yup, those /shudder/.
Raiz0k: @TheMerricat : safe travels!
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k Yeah, I'd take Penguin teeth over those.
Raiz0k: But in lieu of your teeth - or your tongue?
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k my teeth.
RaklarLS: wow, how big is this algal bloom?
CrazyZonie: Surprised the suit doesn't have some sort of electrolysis option to generate O2.
Raiz0k: Ah, so tongue penguin teeth, or the "why not both?" option xD.
Raiz0k: Ah yes, Uppercase Definite Article + Uppercase Name, no problem at all.
Raiz0k: Gah, that wiggly thing...

lucasbune: UwU what's this... wait a minute... what *is* this actually?
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, lucasbune! (Today's storm count: 46)
Raiz0k: It's my wiggly fan!
TStodden: O2 getting low... We might nt need it, but I think the doctor might get blackout mad if we run out...
asthanius: Normally, you suffocate.
xantos69: Hey team, what are we doing?
Raiz0k: Wait, what's the quote command?
blastseeker: dont forget you can put some of the samples into the oxygen and energy bits to refill them a little
Raiz0k: Asking b/c of Cori's "what actually happens if we run out of oxigen?"
MAPBoardgames: @Raiz0k !findquote xxx and !quote ### if you know the number
TStodden: Better than nothing...
MAPBoardgames: !findquote deep
LRRbot: Quote #5878: "Long enough, deep enough, whatever." —Beej [2019-02-25]
Raiz0k: @MAPBoardgames : and adding one?
SachielOne: The percentages next to the numbers are the amount of Power or Oxygen that item will recharge, respectively.
snowewolf: @LoadingReadyRun Hay cam, i think i found a game you guys mite like, its described as a Souls Like co-op the asetics and story seem good
doctorGunsforhands: I'm a little concerned about breathing the alien biodust but okay
MAPBoardgames: @Raiz0k Be a mod.
Raiz0k: Ah, I see, so mod, novote. Thx.
RaklarLS: what are those? alien dolphons?
RaklarLS: dolphins*
CrazyZonie: Geoducks?
MAPBoardgames: You could lobby a mod if you think you've got a good onw.
Raiz0k: Blo blooms bloomvanes up the bloomshore.
CrazyZonie: O2 Alarm: Your O2 might be low.
TheAinMAP: unarmeHmm
lucasbune: What happens when O2 runs out?
RaklarLS: it might just be your imagination though. I mean, you are low on oxygen.
niccus: we're gamers, we don't run out of oxygen
Raiz0k: @RaklarLS xD lrrFINE
CrazyZonie: Cam, you're a chemist. you should know how to make O2 from water. ;)
MAPBoardgames: lrrFINE We're an AI. It's not like we need O2
TStodden: The good doctor does, as she's not ready for "Bed Time"
CrazyZonie: Cori: So, you're willing to go full on HAL?
AlphaHelixNZ: Just popped in to say I really like this game. Great choice for Talking Sim.
MAPBoardgames: 4%. More than we need.
SleepyDeveloper: HAL just killed his crew because of a bad reaction to conflicting orders. danDerp
asthanius: "I'm dying, Squirtle"
Raiz0k: Ooooh, a colony.
Raiz0k: "Baikal OS", holy crap, that's on the nose.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: wait that was the game on Let's Nope
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: the one that was voice-controlled.
niccus: that's PS2's similarly named Lifeline
Mysticman89: I don't like that oxygen and whatever else seems to continue to be consumed even as you read text, which might incentivise skipping over reaidng stuff
SleepyDeveloper: there was also the one you played as the AI and your only interaction is via cameras, rovs, and station equipment.
SleepyDeveloper: Observation I think?
Raiz0k: @Mysticman89 : agreed.
asthanius: Subnautica
doctorGunsforhands: It reminds me a lot of Pimin
Raiz0k: Subnautica.
doctorGunsforhands: Pikmin*
Raiz0k: Yup.
asthanius: This game is full of curiosity
asthanius: Thankfully we have electro-eyes
Raiz0k: Buuut weren't there a few moments of tension anyway?
Gizmoloid: I think there's an option to advance through sorry immediately in Lifeline, but first time should definitely be played as intended.
MAPBoardgames: Hey! Listen! Hey! Listen!
theambivalentagender: Yeah, I like that so far, though maybe because of our natural expectations for games like this there's always that "when is the shoe going to drop" feeling
theambivalentagender: At least for me
Raiz0k: @MAPBoardgames : yeah, got the same vibe from that xD.

Raiz0k: Wait, why do you need to call for a drone if you're an AI?
MAPBoardgames: Save first?
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: I'm not sure what happens if you run out of resources in an uncharted area. The drone can only pick you up in a mapped one.
Gaz_L subscribed with Twitch Prime.
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, Gaz_L! (Today's storm count: 48)
Raiz0k: Please do.
niccus: i don't think there's manual saving, so it's probably autosaving
niccus: is there manual saving?
CrazyZonie: @Raiz0k So your meat passenger doesn't go belly up?
asthanius: Drone is how you leave
asthanius: AI can't do the same stuff the drone can
TheMoatman: Being an AI doesn't mean you have wings
Mysticman89: hopefully it's not ironman pave the save kind of game.
Raiz0k: Ah, missed that passenger bit, sorry for the brainwave Cam.
GCU_OfCourseIStillLoveYou: it won't be. It's a very forgiving game. The objective is not to kill you.
TStodden: Can we just waste O2 by charging & discharging that one thingy?
asthanius: "WASTED"
richard_ermen: In Other Waters ^^ Neat
richard_ermen: Just saw Subnautica, this fits right in
asthanius: Oh! The human takes control
asthanius: They used an override
niccus: looks to be a lower-level AI
amras0x00: "I wonder what happens if my human runs out of oxygen" says the curious AGI
Raiz0k: "Fast-forward to asphyxiation" - sounds great on a T-shirt.
MAPBoardgames: Please don't kill me again.
Raiz0k: Crap, "That was lucky" is potentially a cue for "you have one chance to screw it up".
CrazyZonie: Are we the digital version of the previous scientist?
CrazyZonie: Game looks like it might be Zen to play. But, it's not my cup of tea.
aestrivex: I like how minimalist this game is
aestrivex: This game could have been written entirely in ncurses
Raiz0k: My main concern is the repeat of the "contagion" narrative.

MAPBoardgames: I wonder how many of those 'gag' subs lead to actual additions to the LRR community?
doctorGunsforhands: @CrazyZonie You say that and now I'm comparing this to Analogue: A Hate Story
CrazyZonie: I want to know what the other levels do
raven534: They apparently still use a text formatter that uses forward slashes, based on the number of them present
CrazyZonie: @doctorGunsforhands The zen part? I don't know if Analogue is all that zenful.
doctorGunsforhands: I meant the AI part
NarwhalsInATrenchcoat: paranormal HK?
CrazyZonie: Later Cam and Cori
ghostvalv: later
Raiz0k: Thanks people!
doctorGunsforhands: 'night!
