Releasing on Steam February 27th!

As you may have noticed by now, Social Justice Warriors has been greenlit by the community (and released on Steam!)! After 10 months of ups and downs, thousands of comments that resembled the game itself, two major content updates, and raising $200 for charity[nonadecimal.com], the game is finally coming to Steam!



Social Justice Warriors had a great showing at PAX South a few weeks ago. Not only was it greenlit that weekend, but it received some high praise from IGN in their PAX feature "Why We Need Games Like Social Justice Warriors." I had the wonderful opportunity to show the game to thousands of people and hear why the game was important to them. It was incredibly rewarding to see the game actually making a difference. You can read more about the PAX South booth for SJW here.[nonadecimal.com]

But you're probably more interested in the upcoming Steam release. The good news is that it's launching February 27th! That's like... this Friday.That means you can add it to your wishlist today and get immediate notification when it releases. Check out the store page! And don't forget to tell your friends!

Description
Release date: May 2014
Social Justice Warriors is a satirical role-playing game that translates the standard medieval fantasy heroes of RPGs into social media crusaders facing an endless horde of internet trolls.






  • Social Justice Paladins duel foes with 140 characters or less while shrugging off attacks with a press of the Block button, at least until their foes create new accounts.

  • Social Justice Clerics serve in the name of their patron sub-deity, taking solace in its comforting presence to heal and summoning its divine power to smite their enemies.

  • Social Justice Mages conjure powerful constructs of fact and opinion to alter minds and reality... while occasionally summoning an activist organization or hurling a scathing fireball of a blog post.

  • Social Justice Rogues fight fire with fire. Throw flurries of vitriolic character attacks, confuse enemies with smokescreens of alternate accounts, then delete your accounts and withdraw into the shadows of the net.



The warriors and their opponents fight and fall by the measure of their Sanity and Reputation meters. Trolls confound your sanity with logical fallacies and ad hominem attacks while actively working to destroy your reputation with wild accusations and photoshopped evidence of your misdeeds. How you choose to respond to these attacks is up to you. Relying solely on logical arguments to change minds doesn’t work very well online, but resorting to personal attacks and mudslinging will erode your moral high ground.



=====================================
Social Justice Warriors is a game about the dismissive labels people use to silence each other, including "social justice warrior" and "troll". No matter what social values you have, attacking and shaming other people not only fails to achieve progress but has an additional effect of escalating the conflict and wearing you down in the process. You can read more about the motivation behind the game in Making a Social Justice Warriors Game.[nonadecimal.com]



You can try it and form your own impressions by purchasing the game for $8 on Steam.

So does this make fun of SJWs or the people that constantly disagree with them?

Thanks fatbeer85! I fixed that bug earlier today in preparation for the Steam release on February 27th. I'll have an official announcement up as soon as I get this final build ready. I've temporarily disabled purchases on the other stores until I can upload the update with all these bug fixes.
*working hard*

So I bought the game from your website. I really like it so far, though i wish there was a bit more variety. I really liked how if your stats get high enough you can elevate the "trolls" out of the fight by maxing out their sanity or rep.
I did have an unusual bug (if it is a bug) where as the mage, after using the bottom option (writing a big blog or something, takes 2 turns) I can no longer select my attacks. everytime I push enter, it will select and carry out a command that i never got to chose. I died once because it kept spamming the first option. The other times, if I won it would go back to normal.
It has only happened a couple times and I still really dig the game!

@Dsrt_Pnk I'm not sure how you bought this off steam as it hasn't been released here yet. Perhaps you bought it somewhere else?

Also, /r/TumblrInAction isn't a great depiction of the Social Justice Movement. It's just a bunch of hand-picked examples of SJWs being completely ridiculous/insane/over-sensitive. It's funny as hell, but it's in no way representative of the entire community. /r/TumblrInAction ignores positive examples completely.
