    It is heart-warming to see the inspiring stories of people that walk out of League of Legends. Thank you, Dunkey

      ​@Bromuzl It became what World of Warcraft did a long time ago - a colorful chatroom to spare time with your peers. I don't think the community would even want for the game to become "better".
      There is no difference to the state of both games - community is so used to the low standard that, at this point, if Riot tried to make drastic changes it would yield negative results for their wallets.
      That being said, I hope to see you all back in the nostalgia trip on the release of "League of Legends: Classic - Mists of the Crystal Scar" and "League of Legends: Classic - The Wrath of the Twisted Treeline".

I very much look forward to an era of "BIGMODE PUBLISHED GAMES" and all the positivity it shall bring starting from the both of you.

    I love hearing stories about how Devolver Digital were just a handful of people working from home mostly getting to know developers remotely while having no offfices or corporate bs to worry about. Dunkey has social media presence and a platform to advertise games through already, I sincerely hope this works out well since it will feel a hell of a lot better for someone who knows games over the usual AAA publisher that only know business and couldn't care less if the game were good as long as it makes money.

      @Genesis8629 NFTs alone won't allow you to digital trading since you need a separate system that ensures that access is given only to the 'real owner' of the NFT, and you can do that without NFTs. Unless you are suggesting making the entire fucking compiled code of the game an NFT, which is unfeasible afaik ("NFT images" are normally just a pointer--a URL--to a image file on a server).
      Ownership of digital media is cool. NFT is not how you achieve it.

Dunk, as an indie publisher, just has to see what developer's have already got and decide whether it's good or not. This is gonna be sick for consumers. He's right 100%

      @Chompy the Beast I have had this exact conversation with countless artists and art admirers. They all claim to some extent "living without art is not living at all" which is a beautiful sentiment and yes in an idealic utopian society would be perfectly reasonable. But that is not the world we live in and the majority of people would be filled with utter rage at the notion that they must die of a sickness just because a few wealthy individuals would feel "unmotivated" if they had access to medicine while not needing it.
      It is very very hard to accept the reality of our situation and the dilemmas we face in investing time and resources into something that does not necessarily benefit the majority. I do believe the time is coming where we will lose the luxury of being able to decide apon the matter and the decision will be made for us.
      Art is good and great, but not at the expense of others. Regardless of how uncomfortable it might be, we should not over indulge while we face existential crisis. We should rather first ensure everyone's basic needs are met and then we can move up on Maslow's hierarchy.

    • Chompy the Beast
      Chompy the Beast 2 дні таму

      @Kasper But then it seems you _do_ understand the function and value of what you call ornamental art. I am reminded of a scene from Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations that stuck with me: He was with famed Montanan artist Russell Chatham, walking through the hills of Big Sky, when Russell casually let out something to the effect of "I used to worry that the art I was making was pointless and didn't actually matter in the world."
      Bourdain, who honestly comes off as a little starstruck through the whole segment, seems to eagerly jump on the point with a question that seems to be less from an interviewer and more from a student: He asked something like "What―do you still think that? How did you get over that?"
      Chatham's reply was as casual and off-the-cuff as his previous statement, indeed he seemed to think little of emphasizing it at all, seemed to think it was a throwaway line, a foregone conclusion. He says something to the effect of, "Oh, I realized that a life without art would be a life not worth living."
      What would our struggles, let alone our comfort, be worth if not for art? Obviously a novel is worthless to a starving child, but so too is life-saving medicine to a person who isn't sick. I agree that we should be motivated to actually make the material conditions of our fellow human beings as prosperous as we possibly can with our extensive, modern means―but what better vehicle to inspire such a radical shift than the arts? Of rhetoric, of symbolism, of poetry―words have real power, after all, and so do images, which is really what words are. And so too does performance, which sometimes matters most of all.
      Excess is a world of want is truly detestable, but art can be functional in the propagation of that very notion, and in the carrying out of its solution. Ornamental art as a luxury needn't be a distraction from important matters nor an exclusive privilege, in fact it shouldn't be

    • Kasper
      Kasper 2 дні таму

      @Chompy the Beast lol the "art" you speak of has intrinsic value but something like a painting is just a pretty distraction that can only hope to inspire the development of something that actually improves lives.
      Why I dislike "art" (as in ornaments, not the concept of using creativity) is because it is purely something for those who either came from, aspire to be in, or are in the select minority group of people who are high enough on Maslow's hierarchy to be able to afford to spend time and energy on anything but survival.
      So I agree creativity is valuable and needed, I just struggle to see the sense of spending thousands a year keeping a peace of oily paper safe while people just a few hundred meters away can be found starving, or homeless, or working away their lives. Wouldn't it make sense to first eliminate poverty, homelessness, famine, war etc etc.. Before we partake in the luxury of creating and maintaining art pieces?

    • Chompy the Beast
      Chompy the Beast 3 дні таму

      @Kasper What? There is nothing you have done today that wasn't shaped and made possible by art. Art is artifice: All things made by humanity are art. Art as a diversion, like a painting, is no more or less "art" than the art that designed the device you're using to read this. And art is basically what distinguishes modern humans from our ancestors. I struggle to imagine what motivation lies behind the denouncement of all "art" like this

      Actually, I'd argue that because so much farming simulators were released this year showing how repetitive and stale the video game world became, Dunkey got enough motivation and drive to finally launch this. The farming simulators might be bad but they pushed the development of something that can be potentially beautiful
