The tone of Sindome, at least to me, is more akin to a comedy or parody of cyberpunk of late. It has been months now maybe longer, maybe longer, but the approach and general tone of the world seems to have changed. The true horror of Sindome seems to get trivialised regularly. Events and world moments are undermined by actions that are nonsensical and trivialise the reality of them. I get the odd comment here and there, but that seems to be a trend to it now.
There have been things I have genuinely thought were bad actors acting to discredit scary and terrifying entities and organisations only to find out that things that were done, were done entirely genuinely. Making these spooky bump-in-the-night types look like Saturday cartoon villains. Again, I am having to be vague as heck, but have examples to back up these observations.
I think in a game world that advertises and pushes how hardcore and horrible the world is, it is jarring to hear about fart and poop jokes in pubsic as a demonstration of the populous at large when there are events going on costing lives, livelihoods and so on.
If the world is meant to be a jokey parody of the cyberpunk world I am ok with not taking it seriously, I feel there is however these two directly competing ideals that devalue the efforts of players pushing the advertised theme.
Happy to offer up examples, but understand I cannot.
This is a lot of sense check for me and the game in general if others feel this is the same, but I feel like Sindome just doesn't seem remotely dark and terrible as it used to.
So what are people's thoughts on this?
