So the game “Redshirt” (singular) came out and… I think I’m hooked. It’s a social media satire game that just nails everything that made facebook fun in the first two or three days you were on it. The joys of having someone “like” something you said, the joys of getting new friend requests, and the butterflies of sending out friend requests of your own. It’s got some minor RPG elements as well (job stuff, doing stuff with friends between facebook updates, that sort of thing) and makes fun of the whole Redshirt thing insofar as away teams leave with 4 people and come back with 2 or 3… but it’s mostly the joys of being social.
I made Maribou play and she said “I’m pretty sure that this game isn’t for me” as she sent out tentative relationship feelers and then, when the relationship request dinged, she beamed and said “They went out with me!” right before saying “okay, enough of that” and turned it off.
So… what are you playing?
