Writer, ambivert

Most important to me:
❥ My Emotional Support C*m Sl*t and the light of my life. :funbunsmile:
My hawt lover is this :homingpigeon: Squishy Crayon Pigeon
Vibing & having chill times
Being healthy and well rounded esp. in bad times
Nurturing high self awareness
Genuine, worthwhile company
Overall ability to support myself and in turn others

Me:
I'm goal driven, have zero tact and am painfully frank/honest. I prefer intelligent, complex people who are straightforward but exceptionally sincere with their interactions. I don't vibe well with people who don't have a secure grasp of their emotional intellect. I'm chill to the point nothing offends me.



The following is to prove I'm human, with the hope you'll respect my camp here:

The very first :comp: PC game I played was Hugo III, Jungle of Doom [en.wikipedia.org] and Hugo II, Whodunit [en.wikipedia.org]. I played in the proper order but I liked looking for spider venom in the jungle more (a.k.a. III was harder than II). They were part of a mystery game trilogy following Hugo's House of Horrors [en.wikipedia.org] and were released consecutively in 1990, '91 and '92. They were DOS [en.wikipedia.org] games my dad gave me and my little brother on :floppybird: 3½ inch floppy disks :disk:. We also got a Super Nintendo (SNES) [www.nintendo.co.uk] around the same time, laying a forever winding road of (now classic) game paks towards oblivion. :ArcwoodRanger:

Dad used to take us to arcades a lot . As my brother and I were shy, it was the worst thing ever (personally) but that's exactly why he'd do it so often. Weekend after weekend of video arcades and decades of video games later, it all still reminds me so much of Dad. I don't talk about it a lot but they give me a safe hideaway to rid the demons that my dad can't fight away for me anymore. :Owl:

As I grew up I battled through the usual lineup of GB/DMG (several), GBA/AGB, N64, PS1/PSX, PSP-1000 and PSP-2000. Current Consoles are: NDSL, N3DS, NS and PS4. I like an assortment of games, :controller: console/PC alike, and enjoy indie titles as much as AAAs.

The origin of my gaming handle is from a habit as a writer. Infatuation in the collecting of dreary words that sound like "fantasmical" character names when side by side, and roll off the tongue easily like a limerick gave me Tawny Lawns in a split second when deciding a handle for YT. Also, I enjoy being in, and am comforted by fields of dry, browning grass and hay. Envisioning lifelessness depleted of moisture like that of "tawny lawns" offers me an ironic illusion of salubriousness.

Codex from The Guild is similar to how I feel inside. I'm pretty hardcore on the outside but deep down I'm closed off and shivering like a baby tortoise in its shell. :sb_turtle: Games release me from the dungeons and let me revel in my eccentricities.

IF YOU READ ALL OF THIS FOR SOME REASON AND WE'RE NOT ALREADY FRIENDS, I FEEL LIKE WE SHOULD BE.

Initially, Eliza offers two main topics to ponder. 1. The “Eliza” software, an AI therapy programme that uses simple questions to choose therapy methods and medication for mental health. 2. The technology behind “Eliza” and the people who work to develop this advanced technology. The writers delve into the ethics of the technology and how it affects the moral standing and idealistic or realistic thoughts a company or individual working for said organisation may have. Through different characters, other themes are brought up like the science behind psychology and whether technology is capable of treating mental health issues. But one of the more intriguing notions in this visual novel is the simple understanding of the difficulties that professionals in the field of technology experience when creating anything that could vastly affect society on a social and moral scale.

One of the most surface level dilemmas of ethics produced as an example is “Eliza’s” Transparency Mode. It is an extended and personalised therapy option offered by delving into personal information to form a clearer picture of what’s going on in a client’s life. You go through Transparency Mode by looking through personal information (texts, emails), like if someone were to create a mini game for the Orwell games. It is especially focused on how ethical it is to use the data accumulated through “Eliza’s” service, or any similar software. Each major argument a) It’s too intrusive and b) It helps people, is thoroughly debated utilising several characters in Evelyn’s (protagonist) life. When given response choices in conversations with these people in their life to weigh the ethics behind each of the routes offered by “Eliza,” it leads players down an interesting and crucial part of a conversation which would otherwise have been static and constricted in a kinetic visual novel. It is also interesting to note that you have choices in dialogue when you speak outside of a therapy environment but when using the “Eliza” software, you have 0% choice but to progress like you would any kinetic visual novel.

Don’t forget the mini-game!
Opening up Evelyn’s smartphone, you’ll notice Kabufuda Solitaire. It’s tucked in the corner, nice and snug with a few other vaguely interesting apps for self-reflection and social communication. Zachtronics (dev), is notoriously known for intricate and difficult puzzles. Therefore, I’m not surprised to state that this is probably the most fun and rewarding version of solitaire I’ve played. It's ironically more therapeutic than the counselling in "Eliza" and a fun way to stay chill whilst you go through the myriad of topics Eliza will stuff your mind with.

Aponia vs. Eliza
The next set of topics that Eliza presents requires a bit more rumination. Within this VN are introduced two subtly contrasting, futuristic software endeavours. Aponia and “Eliza” both represent applications with the intent of helping people and their mental health. But the direction and underlying goal for each shows a stark contrast. From a basic player standpoint, you will eventually decide which, if any, route you will take to fill a central role in the creation and realisation of either of these apps. Aponia is a project fuelled under the belief that people needn’t feel all pain and suffering to live a fulfilling life and given the ability to choose which ones to experience, we will earn more than we would in a natural pattern of happiness vs. grief. As Evelyn mentions about people who find themselves in this wormhole of pain,“A lot of the time it isn’t even their fault, the world failed them somehow.” On the other hand, “Eliza’s” core goal is to be able to form a larger database of comprehension into an individual client’s needs and woes. Thus, forming a universal grid of data for vast populations, leading to the development of the world’s most advanced smart assistant or artificial general intelligence (AGI). Aponia is socially daring and dynamic, dreaming of a world where people are simply more in control of negative emotions. “Eliza” is focused on mechanised advancement and corporal gain, social advancement is a perk, not a focal point. Yet both have scenes referring to the productivity increase in an individual user. “Eliza” is spearheaded over years by a seemingly soulless Rainer, fiercely business orientated and driven. Aponia is a new venture by a severely depressed Soren, with previous ties in the development of Eliza, but dissuaded to continue due to “Eliza’s” questionable direction and lack of ethics on the topic of privacy.

What does Eliza and the future hold?
Eliza whittles the plot and story into non-existence, which was the only flaw I could really find and a necessary evil. The storyline at its core is so irrelevant, a shell making Eliza more approachable, that I was able to leave it out of this review completely. By sacrificing any sense of true narrative, it can focus on the ethical, philosophical and technological statements that Eliza is making as a visual novel. It is refreshingly apparent that Eliza isn’t your typical VN. Character relationships aren’t as important in this game as is commonly the case in this genre. You have an effect on people and your professional/personal ties branch out in varying manners. The conversations you partake in feel like listening to short snippets of interviews into the life and views of people you may or may not be familiar with in the tech development field. Surprisingly, Eliza uses the VN genre to talk more intensely about specific issues of increasing importance in this technologically advanced day and age. Something I’ve yet to have experienced before. A choice Eliza is truly blessed with is that the majority of the writing and all of the dialogue is voiced by actors. Simply having most of the words in any visual novel read to you by professional voice actors makes an enormous difference in keeping your interest, and in many sections you can simply let the dialogue run like a radio in the background as you sit back and relax (or even multitask).
It is one of those games, so little known but a definite gem, that several people asked me about it whilst I was playing and every single one of them found the description of Eliza engaging enough to be worth looking into. Ultimately, Eliza poses many intriguing questions and the views of different sides to an equation we will need an answer to sooner rather than later. It harbours a penetrative style of progression that will make you pause and ponder. We are left to reflect on the philosophy behind human creation and the future possibilities of technology capable of recreating or mimicking human sensibilities. Even in the basic sense, since it’s rare to find visual novels that tease one’s brain more than “other organs,” I feel my valuable few hours playing were very well spent well.

The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral, begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy. Instead of diminishing evil, it multiplies it. Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. Through violence you murder the hater, but you do not murder hate. In fact, violence merely increases hate. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.

                                  - Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929–1968)
                         Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community? (1967)





I have my doubts about all this real value in mountaineering, in getting to the top of everything and overlooking everything. Satan was the most celebrated of Alpine guides, when he took Jesus to the top of an exceeding high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the earth. But the joy of Satan in standing on a peak is not a joy in largeness, but a joy in beholding smallness, in the fact that all men look like insects at his feet. It is from the valley that things look large; it is from the level that things look high; I am a child of the level and have no need of that celebrated Alpine guide. I will lift up my eyes to the hills, from whence cometh my help; but I will not lift up my carcass to the hills, unless it is absolutely necessary. Everything is in an attitude of mind; and at this moment I am in a comfortable attitude. I will sit still and let the marvels and the adventures settle on me like flies. There are plenty of them, I assure you. The world will never starve for want of wonders; but only for want of wonder.

― G.K. Chesterton, Tremendous Trifles






[Barley Lightfoot]
Express way is a little too obvious.
On a quest, the clear path is never the right one.


[Ian Lightfoot]
What?

[Barley]
During one Quests of Yore campaign, Shrub Rose Hammer and I, took the easy route, lead him straight into the belly of a gelatinous cube. Only reason I didn't suffer the same fate? I followed my gut. And it's telling me, we take an ancient trail called the Path of Peril.

[Ian]
But the expressway is faster.

[Barley]
Maybe not in the long run.
