Massively OP’s end-of-the-year awards continue today with our blooper award for Best Skill in Project Gorgon, as proposed by MOP reader Agemyth. And the winner is…
Project Gorgon took home a blooper award last year for the proud honor of being the best milking sim in the whole genre, as it is a game in which you can not only milk a cow but milk a player who is playing a cow. You need to understand that this game has a lot of weird skills, from Pig (“the art of living and fighting as a pig”) and Cheesemaking (“making cheese, butter, and other daily products. But mostly: cheese”) to Poetry Appreciation, Iocaine Resistance, and Art History. But Dying is the best skill of all. In any game, really, but especially in this one.
“Dying is a skill that represents the variety of unique ways in which a character has died. The skill unlocks small, but permanent bonuses to Max Health. It also gives access to a very useful ability, therefore it is actually a good idea for new players to try to get their characters killed in a variety of situations.”
Different causes of death award different experience, including “Realized that life is meaningless,” “Eardrums exploded due to extreme screaming,” “Innards teleported into a distant volcano,” and “Murdered by Seafood.” This game, you guys.
