  • One thing that doesn’t really make sense to me is that Valryi claims to not be the creator of Kanye 3030 and that it has nothing to do with them(?). But as Matt said, it’s highly likely that the pastebin poster is the game’s creator, and the pastebin poster’s PayPal name was Nick Lyons, one of Valryi’s alias and that seems too much of a coincidence to be just a coincidence to me.

    • P.S. There are (magical) trees hidden in all of the biomes seen in Skylands, they share a weird connection with the stones in all of the biomes. Small stones can be found above almost all of the trees. Copies of these stones can be found placed around a giant pink tree in Fantasy Field. Maybe this is something to work with?

  • Ok so none of my Business but I think he should do some sort of game theory of Bob the FNF mod now you may be saying but he's just a normal old mod but I found something... in the newest bob update right now Bobs onslaught if you beat the last song ( and I'm not talking about little man ) there's texts that pops up with loud sounds the could mabye hurt your ears. anyways there text that pops up witch is a Link to a google drive here's the Link and it has some stuff to be frank pretty sus like a note that says "I don't know what this weird goop is in your office is" and I'm guessing it has something to do when in the second song in Bob onslaught you can see bob dripping with evil goop or something. And also in there is what looks like a child drawing of "me Mom and dad" and the dad is the only one whos frowning witch may mean whys bobs design is always smiling because he never smiled. I don't I why put so much effort to this text he's Probably not gonna see this but if he does then yayyyyy :D

  • so, what's the deal with the very real stuff about ascensionism prior to 2013? did you ask valyri about it? did she base her project off that loose religious concept? if not, then why that name, and also more importantly, why did Phenix choose to include information about the pre-2013 religion, which irrevocably tied Valyri (presumably a chill artist who wanted to work on a cult themed art project) to the pre-2013 version of ascenionism? something seems off

  • This may be buried in the comments but on the topic of cults, is there a possibility of getting a video on The Blackout Club. It is SUCH and interesting game with a story that never got finished as the devs had unfortunate real life issues in the form of a wildfire burning down their office followed by the "cooties" lockdown a few months later. For a VERY brief synopsis, in the small town of Redacre, whose communication is cut off from the outside world, a voice/god/demon/entity (it is intentionally left vague but for easy explanation we'll just call them 'Voices') named SPEAK-AS-ONE (yes, they are all spelled with capslock) has taken over the adults, causing them to perform tasks in their sleep. For various reasons, other Voices have split from SAO, be it to rebel against (THEE-I-DARE), create mischief (THE-LAST-LAUGH), enact vengeance (SEED-THE-GRUDGE), hunt for sport (HUNT-THE-STRONG), restore the nature order of death (IN-HER-TEETH), create balance using logic (THE-MEASURE-CUTS), or accept sacrifices to save others (DIE-FOR-YOU). As a child living in Redacre, you're determined to save the parents of the town by dedicating yourself to one of these Voices and performing various night missions to disrupt SPEAK-AS-ONE's cult activities within the town. Not only are there branching stories of various townsfolk but there is also drama between the Voices and their relationships to each other. It is a FASCINATING game with little to no recognition and I'd love to hear a theory on what is actually going on within the town.
