BLUE SKY IN GAMES CAMPAIGN LAUNCHED

Games need BLUE SKIES! Games need BRIGHT YELLOW SUNS! Games need RED AND BLUE THINGS in them! We want to play in a HAPPY PRETEND LAND, not a shit version of an American slum full of mixed-race gangsters wearing licensed sportswear!



We want to COLLECT BANANAS FROM MAGIC CASTLES not earn respect from fictional gang leaders! We want to stun enemies with BOUNCE ATTACKS, not shoot them in unrealistic and shoddy drive-bys!




We want to restore our health by COLLECTING ROAST CHICKEN, not by syringing drugs into the only vein we can still find! Games have gone SHIT and DARK and RUBBISH and WE WANT THEM BACK!




We want music that goes PLINKY-PLINK AND DOOPY-DOO not "motherfucking west coast mother fucker, y'all"! We want to fight WEIRD MONSTERS not drug-dealing criminals!




Make games look like games again! Support the Blue Sky In Games Campaign NOW!


DEVELOPERS: HOW YOU CAN HELP TODAY!

- Change everything that's grey into blue.
- From now on, everyone wears red shoes.
- Make everything happen at midday or sunset.
- Replace gun textures with banana textures.
- Turn all cars into pink convertibles that wobble and only do 15mph.
- If you get 100 of anything, a little tune plays.
- Instead of saying "crew" say "your buddies".
- Instead of saying "hood" say "zone".
- Make the female characters something other than prostitutes.
- Make the black characters something other than drug dealers.

We feel so strongly about this we made some banners on work time! Support the Blue Sky In Games Campaign with the following images:

I love it! Bring back blue skies, OutRun 2 and Afterburner: Climax have reminded me why I started playing games in the first place.

Yes, I love blue skies!

It's about time somebody said this! Bring back games that rely on addictive playability and bright colours that make your brain happy! I want to play as a brightly coloured hedgehog with crazy japanese music in the background again!

Maybe if you guys stepped outside you'd realize there's a real sky out there and you don't have to waste your time creating pages like this to "get it back".

It's one thing to be tongue-in-cheek with the sky reference, but the racial discrimination and stereotyping is a far more serious issue that deserves an honest discussion - not to be shoved in next to this "blue sky" tagline as a simple joke.

I'm not deriding you for mentioning those issues, it's just that they are far more socially responsible fronts and have more transposition to the real world than the atmospheric palette.

Yay, go primaries! At this point I reckon my freaky dual personality handheld friend is the only console I give a shit about!

Dark Knight said...

prostyle: I'm surprised you can't see the genuine concerns shining through here. I think the remarks concerning race here are quite genuinely intended.. Even if it's more or less presented as a joke I think this is actually a serious issue and that thje author sees this. I am certainly tired of the "gritty and realistic" (read: morally ambiguous, violent and unhappy) approach to gaming, how many times do we need to see the same negative stuff repeated?

Norgus said...

While I agree to some extent, you could always, you know, buy a Nintendo console and play their games.
They still have plenty of the brightly coloured addictive type video games. Where games are still games.

The competition has lost sight of the point of consoles (omg hi-def output! dvds! hd-dvds! *list of other non game related features*

Yeah, just avoid Microsoft and Sony and you already have the kind of game with 'blue sky'

8:40 PM  
ProStyle said...

dark knight: I wasn't implying that they weren't genuine, if you read my original post you will see that I consider them to be very important issues.

I just think they are presented in an unfair fashion by being relegated to a sub-issue of the atmospheric color or effects; when it is obvious to most of us that they are far more important and socially responsible issues than the color of the sky.

That is all.

well if blue is so great,how come blue balls is completely horrible,hmmm?
I don't support this at all,how is a post-apocolyptic future supposed to have blue skies? nature-friendly nukes?
all that said,all I have left to say is this: There was one other group that wanted blue in the world...blue eyes...you nazis!

Is this guy seriously this dense? The site isn't trying to force us to put blue skys and happy things in games again. They're only encouraging it. Myself, as a developer and hardcore gamer, only half agree with this. The main thing that would hold this back is most people in the world want violent games or more realistic games. Games with bright colors tend to be more childish. For some games, the happy theme fits nicely, but for others it just won't work.

From the quote on Eurogamer it seemed racist. It's obvious from your page that was not your intention. Please do something like:

1.replace the term "mixed-race gangsters" with "stereotyped gangsters" or "racially stereotyped gangsters".

2. replace "Make the black characters something other than drug dealers" with "Make the black and mixed race characters something other than drug dealers"

Thanks

Kickstone said...

Jesus wept! Prostyle, get off your fucking horse you fool. Of course it's a more important issue. Should he have written a piece about the serious effects of this stereotyping instead of a fun piece regarding the evolution of games..........no. You know why? Because he doesn't have to. He's talking about making games more fun instead of shit gangsta shit bollocks games that only the chav down the street from me likes. Just because he mentioned the stereotyping of gangsters in games it doesn't mean he should put it to the forefront of the piece. Lighten up you big fanny.
Oh, and I do step out and I'm sure a lot of people who play games do. What's with all the stereotyping!!!
Oh, and nukeyalar, fuck off.

Is it OK if I just alternate between playing Katamari Damacy and The Warriors?

1:38 AM  
knoCKer said...

Yes. Yes. Yes.

Furthermore I want all games to have a high score. Regardless of whether it's appropriate or not.

game over
