Source : Video Game About Dating Supreme Court Justices Has A Different Ring To It These Days

The developers making Supreme Courtship always had a tricky needle to thread. To educate players about American government they would let them date Supreme Court Justices.

Meme visual novels were a mistake.
This premise would be perfect as a parody of how American culture tends to depict the Supreme Court, but it sounds…
Why is this a thing that exists
This is at once completely my shit and also very, very cringe (look at Thomas in that picture... Oof)
this entire story is wild but nothing is wilder than justice breyer’s hairstyle
*blinks several times* ...huh?
PSA for those concerned: the creators specifically address Clarence Thomas' inexcusable sexual harassment. He will…

cc @ChapoFYM
What the fuck?
I wonder how poisoned your brain has to be to make a game about dating supreme court justices even as a joke
I want someone to kill me
steins;gate on steam for $20
sooo ive been working on a game,
Hey @CHAPOTRAPHOUSE how much do I have to pay so you’ll play this on @ChapoFYM ??
And the streak of Katawa Shoujo being the only decent dating sim made by westerners is still going strong
This shit is why nobody takes western VNs seriously
To be fair, the concept was pretty shit at inception, too.
seems like less of a "got awkward lately" and more of a "we actually learned about our justice system"
Why try telling an actual story when you can make an unfunny "ironic" joke
Why is The West so bad at Moe Anthropomorphism?
Shit website reporting about shit game, by a shit writer. This is shitty :3
even if liberalism were good, it would be worth destroying it to prevent anything like this from ever being made
Vraiment je veux savoir où est la demande pour ce genre de VNs j'ai jamais vu qqn y jouer
yeah only now is this idea considered fucking awkward. christ
i dont think westerners should be allowed to make dating sims anymore

If they did a version of this with serial killers it would be #1 selling game for women of all time
Well at least we know how the Antonin Scalia route will end
This is one of those comically bad ideas you can't make up
Consider playing Steins;Gate, Danganronpa or even fuckin DDLC instead of this
Will there ever be a Western dev that makes a dating sim without an ironic gimmick and a "hey lol arent dating sims…
absolutely not
Such a shame Kavanaugh is ruining this otherwise great idea
This is worse than Hamilton.
*stares at imaginary camera*
I need a minute to process that this exists
Time for “Cynical irony drenched Western VN #2346” everybody, hurray
Azure Striker Gunvolt is on Steam for $20
*In complete monotone* that's wild
Confirm kavanaugh so that this game doesnt exist
You know what? It's okay to kill someone's dream if that dream is to animate a young, sexy Anthony Kennedy. Kill al…
stop making these
Brilliant plan here.
no one cares give us huniepop 2 instead thanks
now Supreme Court, next state governors, soon Presidents.
Oh my god it’s just Dream Daddy but with Supreme Court justices, I’m so conflicted.
Can western visual novels just cut the irony shit out and become something that won't actively hurt the genre's rep…
There is absolutely no way that this is going to sell to anyone
fuck off
Yay more awful ironic western dating sims
I hope Justice Kavanaugh makes this illegal
It’s been a good 29 years, but I highly doubt I’ll make it to 30 knowing this is in the world.
yeah i’m gonna be off twitter for a while
Hey Justice Sotomayor...
“Fascinating.” No.
Jesus fucking
The other times were just practice, this really is the worst thing I've ever seen
Every so often I see something that takes my breath away in the worst way and silently pray chapo will talk mad shi…
we’ve forsaken the youth
I refuse to believe Ruth Bader Ginsburg was dateable at any point.
Americans are a demented people.
I’m writing a deranged amicus brief right now about my thicc Supreme Court Justice
laughing thinking about the scalia character dying in every single route
Imagine the dumbest idea ever even BEFORE the Kavanagh nomination.
legitimaly one of the most embarrasing things I've seen on the internet.
America continues to be unable to build a sincere version of a dating sim and doubles down on irony YET AGAIN
fuck the supreme court (no not like that)
Lmoa @ the implication that this wasnt a terrible idea before
I feel like I’ve seen worse ideas, but I’m not sure where.
Also, shout outs to more hunky/twinky Chuggaaconrony over there
When will the ironic dating sims/VNs stop?
This is the stupidest concept for a video game ever. EVER. E V E R. V E R.
Fuck le procureurs
*wades into gamer twitter and instantly regrets it*

Are people incapable of making a vn that isn't LoL XD?
We are all dead and in Hell.

i want this to stop
If you were born to report this story, your life was a tragi-comic waste.
can i ghost the ghost of scalia
what the fuck
No Gorsuch. This game is fucking useless.
Why the fuck would anybody sim-date Elena Kagan? Also dont date Clearence Thomas
Please defund Western indy game devs.
I don't get all these dating sims meant to poke fun at shit when you'd think one of them would tell an actual story…
