About
Formerly know as PhilKenSebben. He is now 33 and old. He probably hates you as well. He used to run The Low(er) Tier, he podcasted (and is now on Fapcast, led by StriderHoang) and got into development. He says he enjoys nothing, but his known interests (besides games) are: reading, hiking, playing with his kids, yelling at old(er) people, collecting various virus samples, stalking Smurfee, thinking about working out, itching his bare butthole and seeing how long he can go, without smelling my finger and Batman. He loves old school cars (Chevy), football (Packers & Niners) and of course: Vidya Gamze!

His favorite games as a wee lass were: SMB3, Gunstar Heroes, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, Doom/Quake, Excitebike, Anything from Sierra/Lucasarts and MK. Now days He is a filthy game slut. Keen on TBS and Roguelikes though. The replayability makes his dick hard. He's always down to game with anyone, so feel free to hit him up on whatever you see I'm on. He's been on Dtoid quite awhile now (almost 7 years) and have been involved in numerous off the radar things like contests, recaps, Community Playdate Managing and spreading his AIDS. You can find him lurking mainly in the forums now days, but he checks for spam and spreads his love here and there in cblogs and the fp. He loves you sick bastards. In a sexy non-sexual way.



He is also on that thar Tweetarr @MikeMcPhil. Feel free to hit him up, He is always down to chat.

I was combing through bbains blogs (you are awesome good sir) and grabbing some indie games due to be being bored today and wanting something unique (So glad you had Ninja Senkai in there bbain, one of my favorite indies ever). I grabbed a lot of cool shit, but stumbled across this. Beautiful Escape: Dungeoneer is this little fellas name.

Here's the synopsis: Torturing. Causing pain and suffering. Taking screams and tears from a completely subdued human being.
That's the hobby of people from a community called The Dungeoneers. Dungeoneers have their own private dungeons in their homes (hence the name), to which they take strangers - those naive enough to fall for the dungeoneer's charms.
Members from this community won't settle for just executing their sadistic game. They must show it to other people. For that, they videotape their torture sessions and post it to online forums, to get other member's appreciation and reviews.

BE:D tells the story of Verge, a dungeoneer depressed because he's lost his touch with doing decent videos, and because the love of his life, Daily, couldn't care less about his existence.

Gameplay
BE:D has two distinct gameplay aspects:
--The first one is similar to a Dating Sim, in which you have to approach strangers on the street and seduce them to go home with you, mainly using dialog choices.
--The second one is more like a puzzle, and it consists of setting up your dungeon to torture your victims. Your goal at this stage is making your victim leave the dungeon completely shattered psychologically and physically, but still alive. That's what the Dungeoneers call a Beautiful Escape, and it's the ultimate goal of the torture sessions. You can also get them killed, get them too depressed to leave the dungeon, or even have them leave healthy enough, but your viewers won't appreciate your videos as much. It's all about the delicate balance between too much and not enough.

Gameplay elements are tempered with lots of dialogs and the resolution of Verge's love story.






Well thats certainly a helluva premise. I'm really looking forward to playing this tonight. I'm even more curious if I can avoid doing bad things all together (pacifist run). This is (hopefully, still haven't played) one of my favorite things about gaming now days. Exploring taboo topics and delving into peoples brains to see their motivations and quirks. I'm a firm believer that we all have good AND evil inside of us. The same man who saved a child during a fire, may also be the son of a bitch who started the fire to cover up a rape/murder. Eeessh, that was drastic, but it made my point. I've seen and done so much crazy shit in my short 30 years and I love when I find a game that challenges what type of person I am. I love all my shooters and rpgs and strategy games just as much, don't get me wrong. But sometimes you just need something different.
