This guy posted this copy-paste comment on my game, and I’m sure he’s just been spamming everyone with it as well.

He couldn’t have even rated the game because he has no games associated with his account.

Here’s a link to the game he’s advertising which is probably his own and he either made a second account to advertise or was also part of the team working on the game, either way they shouldn’t be advertising and they should just play by the rules.

 192 ratings and only 87 coolness. Nice…

Clickbait: Missed opprotunity

So my game’s based on Windows 95 if you don’t know. I sent it to my boss who’s in charge of the game I’m currently working on. This was his response (I hate myself for not realizing this missed opportunity):

Finished Just in Time!

Check out ClickBait: Blogger Simulator

I ended up making a Wiki style list of all the mechanics for those curious.
I’d advice that you don’t read these unless you want to spoil the mechanics for yourself. If you want to go in blind, play the game now, read later!

 

~~<[Blog Creation]>~~
Money: Used to pay bills.
Time Speed: Time in the game matters. Every 24 hours you lose money and the time in-between posts influences how many views you’ll get.
Blog Name: Doesn’t matter what this is, just make it whatever you like (It’ll change the fake URLs in the game).

~~<[Characters]>~~
Webmaster: He owns the server your blog runs on. You pay him money and he helps you with your website.
Hackers: They’ll try to hack your website to steal your Fans, Subscribers, and Money! The more Fans you have, the more likely you are to be threatened.
Fans: Fans have a 60% chance to view your posts.
Subscribers: Subscribers have a 90% chance to view your posts. They also pay you every time you post!

~~<[Posting]>~~
Buzzwords: Attract new users to your blog. Fans won’t like a ton of Buzzwords, though.
Length: The longer the post, the more likely Fans will want to stay Fans. Short posts will make Fans leave.
Quality: High Quality posts will make random visitors more likely to become Fans and Fans more likely to become Subscribers.
Time: If you don’t wait and just constantly make new posts, they won’t get many views and will most likely scare away Fans and Subscribers! The least amount of time you can wait for the maximum output is 2 in-game hours.
Views: You get money for every View. You can see a graph on the top right of the past 20 posts and how their view count compare to each other
Posts: You can go back and read through all of your posts whenever you like.

~~<[Skills]>~~
Level/XP: You gain XP for every post you make. If you Level up, you gain a Skill Point.
Skill Points: It costs the current Level of any Skill in Skill Points
Advertising: You earn money off of advertising on your blog. The higher this is, the more money you make per View.
Posting Ability: This augments your Views as well as the chance you will gain more Fans and Subscribers. It also has a nice aesthetic affect that changes the font of new posts as well as allows pictures to appear for posts.
Bandwidth: This limits the number of views you can get per post. By raising this, you’ll raise the number of possible views you can get for every post.
Security: Lowers the chance of being threatened by Hackers as well as lowering the chance that Hackers will be successful.​

Any help with this?

Apparently there’s a missing close bracket here but I can’t find it. If you’re not doing anything, would you mind helping me out? Thanks!

(Fans * RRandom( GetItemValue( “Ini++ v1.5 Object 2”, “Skills”, “Posting Ability”, 1 )-1
* 0.1 + 6, 10 ) * 0.1) + Subscribers
* RRandom( (GetItemValue( “Ini++ v1.5 Object 2”, “Skills”, “Posting Ability”, 1 )-1) * 0.2 + 9, 10 ) * 0.1
* Min(Last Post, Best Last Post )
* 10.0 / ( Best Last Post * 10.0 )
* RRandom(100 – Min(Ceil((( Y Bottom( “Buzzwords” ) – Y Top( “Buzzwords” ) )* 100.0 )
/ (( Y Bottom( “Quality” ) – Y Top( “Quality” ) ) + ( Y Bottom( “Length” )
– Y Top( “Length” ) ) + ( Y Bottom( “Buzzwords” ) – Y Top( “Buzzwords” ) )) ), 96 ), 100 ) * 0.01

Edit: Found a ton of misplaced brackets in there at line 3. Thanks to the two who replied for the help!

Most of what I’ve done today was mechanic based, but I did make it so “your webmaster” can send you messages based on what you’ve done so far. In case I’m missing anything else that’s changed, take a screenshot!

Created this by repeatedly overlapping recordings of me dropping one of my guitar picks on my keyboard then raising the pitch 2 semitones.

ClickBait: Totally crazy random chance

So the blog post titles in ClickBait are randomly generated by taking 2 terms from a list of 250 terms.

In the 62,500 chance they’re both the same thing, I ended up getting:
1 in 62,500 chance

Decided to just draw strings rather than using a Rich-Edit Text box. I also decided to add some Skills such as your blog’s Bandwidth that limits the number of people that can visit your blog’s posts.

If you don’t know, my game’s called click-bait simulator so I made a graph to show how many views your posts have:

Just felt good testing my own game

Just tested my game to see if it was good or I should start over. Started getting points and felt really excited even though the game’s incredibly simple and kind of silly. Mission accomplished.
