Super Ethical Shipping Climax

Post  gekiganwing on Tue Jan 28, 2014 9:26 pm

I hadn't heard about this project until I looked at news on Equestria Gaming today. It's been in development on Tumblr, and its first demo was released recently. From EQG's post: "Billing itself as a SFW-ish parody of shipping-centric visual novels, the Super Ethical Shipping Climax demo is an awkward jumble of borrowed vectors, annoying placeholder music and plenty of fourth wall-breaking dialogue."

There is some merit in reducing your expectations and just getting your story finished and released. That's partly the point of why NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) exists. Furthermore, there is some merit in creating intentionally bad fiction. It can be an exercise in creativity, and letting all of your artistic pretentions go.

I'm a little worried, since I've seen some embarrassing parodies. Just referencing recent movies and trends is not inherently funny. Making characters curse and break their established characterization does not often result in comedy. And addressing the audience doesn't always lead to humor.

I kinda want to play it now, just because of the title. I'll form my opinion from there, but as a fan of parody (when done well) I feel I owe it to myself to try.
