CliffyB Teases the SAPPENING

Cliff Bleszinski Xs that he's been working on a game pitch. Details are scant, but the former Epic Games designer known for his work on the Unreal and Gears of War series does offer some form of title as a hint, presuming there's more than just randomness in the term "SAPPENING." Maybe it's got to do with exposing the private camera rolls of trees? Here's word:
WELL, just sent over the latest slide deck for a new game/IP that I've been noodling on for some time, we'll see where this goes.

The marketing slogan for it?

"Welcome...to the SAPPENING."

I'll let y'all figure that out.

I always wonder what Bleszinski has to gain by continuing on with this. I mean he is a legend in gaming, he made a ton of money, and he has a gorgeous and successful wife. The guy is living the dream. I can't decide if it's that he is, above everything else, a creative mind and is happiest when he gets to create something, or his massive ego just can't accept the fact that the industry has moved beyond him as he desperately but futilely tries to regain past glory.

Kind of in the same way John Romero tried to do, yes. Some people are just one hit wonders and that's okay. I guess we'll see but to answer another persons question on this thread, no I won't lose sleep over it.
I'm sorry to inform the general public that vaccines DO NOT bestow upon thee eternal life. If you're around the age of 80 you need to be making your peace with God or the easter bunny. Whichever you believe in.

That reminds me of "The Fappening".

Good jorb.
I immediately thought of the M. Night Shyamalan movie 'The Happening' So I think me and you are on the right track. Since we're mixing a sex site with a strange plague horror movie and I'm thinking the word sapiosexual also then 'The Sappening' is obviously going to be a game about a plague where people suddenly run around naked but only the smartest ones while others try to take pictures of them. Of course it will be a live service game with mtx and pay to win.
