⚠️ Encyclopedia Dramatica is currently being restored by automated scripts ⚠️
There's been a lot of questions as to what's going on with the site and what comes next. So we have this (ordered) roadmap of what's being worked on and what's to come. This will be updated until the roadmap is complete as Æ has a lot of missing features and ideas that I'd like to fix in regards to its offerings before I implement big plans for the site's popularity and well-being in 2021.
Content restoration (Mostly done, few things missing that will be restored sporadically) Image restoration (Being run in background, nothing I can do cept wait)
Æ Imageboard (Currently being worked on)
Mediawiki upgrade and backend fixes
.onion domain for Tor-friendly editing and viewing
CSS overhaul (Fixing things like the videos on mobile, and overall a rehaul of the wiki's look to be more friendly to readers)
Paid bounty board for new articles (Won't be managed by me for legal reasons however I will ensure it runs smoothly)
Anonymous phone # service for those seeking ban evades from Twitter as well as a phone number not tied to their name (more details at launch)
Currently we are nearing our annual LLC renewal fee ($650) as well throwing the funds required for these other changes and aspects. If you would like to support Æ consider purchasing a copy of The Hustler's Bible or securing some Merch. Donating is also appreciated however I would rather give something back as per the two options above.
If you have any questions you can join our public Telegram chat to DM me privately or @ me in chat.
You can also email me via [email protected]
Merch notes: Thank you to all who have purchased merch. We will ship late January or mid February depending on our provider's speed.
Here's to setting the world on fire in 2021!
Limbo of the Lost
Limbo of the Lost, or "LOL" is a totally original and innovative point and click adventure game. You play as Captain Benjamin Spooner Briggs to explore Limbo in the Keep of Lost Souls. Unlike real games, this is a giant pile of ripoff, tracing, printscreen, and fail.
Seeing is Believing
In the early 90s, Creative/Project Director Steve Bovis and Tim Croucher came up with the brilliant concept for this game. They began work on it in 1995 with help from Laurence Francis and the original intent to make LOL for the Atari ST. It was later ported to the Amiga 1200 and CD32, but at that point it was shit nobody cares about anymore, so the publishers threw it down the well.
When the threesome realized they needed to tighten up the graphics, they taught themselves super high-tech tools like Poser, Photoshop, printscreen and an open source engine called Wintermute. They founded Majestic Studios and started making their very own 3D game. After realizing that computer science and art are hard, they decided that it would be easier to just
steal take inspiration from other games and films.
Works that inspired Limbo of the Lost include:
- The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
- The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
- Unreal Tournament 2004
- Unreal Tournament 2003
- Diablo II
- Thief: Deadly Shadows
- Silent Hill 4: The Room
- Return to Castle Wolfenstein
- Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
- World of Warcraft
- Lord of the Rings
This list is not comprehensive.
When Majestic Studios' publisher, Tri Synergy, found out that Steve and pals had been stealing, tracing and plagiarizing, they shat a brick and stopped distributing LOL. Bethesda Softworks should pursue a lawsuit against Majestic Studios since LOL is the worst game ever, though that has yet to be seen. In the meantime, Steve's daughter has been lavishing praise on her dad's game by making sockpuppet posts all over the hugglenets.
The internet, however, has risen to the occasion and is enjoying the corruption of LOL. A "name the stolen asset" meta-game has become a large part of this endeavor.
Good god, I hope not.
If you haven't played the game then don't watch this video as it contains spoilers. This is quite possibly the only redeeming feature of the entire game. If you have seen this ending as a result of actually COMPLETING this batshit game, then it's about time you became an hero. Now.
