A Lot Of Game Developers Are Confessing Their Sins Regarding Loss
Twitter is currently the hub of all things related to Elon Musk and his cockups, the Malaysian General Election 15 fallout, and a bunch of confessions in case the social media platform goes under. The latter is trending especially in the games industry side, since many developers are confessing their game design sins.
One of them who started this trend was a senior character artist for Overwatch, who confessed to hiding “abstract art” versions of the Loss meme in older projects.
Now that Twitter is actually going to die you legally need to admit your game dev sins
I have hidden abstracted versions of Loss in older projects and you’ll NEVER find them.

For those who don’t know their video game meme and history, the Loss meme started when webcomic Ctrl+Alt+Del took a dramatic turn from its video game humour with a strip depicting a miscarriage. The comic’s attempt to add an emotional cue backfired, and was mocked for years on end. Clever folks even did a minimalistic interpretation of it to this day. Turns out that most of these “last day” confessions from developers revolved around adding Loss into video games they worked on. We have a couple from Maneater, Super Meat Boy Forever, and even A Hat In Time.

I wonder who inserted the biggest loss meme into a game. I added one that was the size of a cruise ship ?

Apart from that meme, the other confessions include a Far Cry 6 buff that never happened, The Witcher 3 jiggle, and a JoJo reference in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Every time animators or directors told me to nerf the reload and run speed buffs on far cry 6 I'd say yes then not do it

I submitted a ticket to reduce boob jiggle of triss in witcher 3
tbh it was well needed because when she did 180 turn her boobs would keep on jiggling for solid 15 seconds
but still, none of you saw this beautiful moment, probably because of me

Ha! That's actually how Outer Wilds handles movement: The player doesn't go anywhere, the rest of the universe does.
They did that to make the experience smoother, since if they didn't movement/aiming/etc. would be janky.

I put a Jojo reference in GotG.

In the Outriders prologue mission, the forest catches fire. We didn’t have a procedural fire system then, so the designer scripted about 600 plants to individually catch fire
