FixFox is a top-down pixel art sci-fi puzzle game. Fix machines with weird tools, try and escape the planet.
It's a "cozy" game, so it's very chill and laid back. There's a touch of Stardew Valley about it.
I read the description of it before it was released, and it seemed like it would be interesting, so I wishlisted it, and then was on special in February for 75% off, so I bought it.
I kind of regret it. Conceptually it seemed like a nice idea, but in practice it doesn't rise above the pixel art to grab me the way some other games have.
While it is kind of cute & cozy, it's also just... boring. I wanted to like it, but it just didn't do anything for me.
Sadly, for me, FixFox is:
@gwaldby There's no efficient way around treating intentional mis- & disinformation, which cause harm as punishable criminal offenses — not as free speech, which approves & honors bad faith behind harmful mis- & disinformation.
So if for example some idiot seriously tells you to swallow disinfectant to treat COVID & you are gullible & naïve enough to believe him, and your inner organs get severely damaged as a result, he FFS needs to be held accountable & punished.
For the sake of justice & to set a deterring & warning example.
Same with harmful mis- & disinformation produced, paid & spread by lie factory Fox "News".
