    It's a joke about the name. That's related to the topic.

    Also, the only difference between it and multiple posts in this thread and another Imagine release thread is that it's a picture and I don't see anything in the rules that so let's not make up our own.

    EDIT: And I'd just like to say that I am up for debate on this.

    How is an image about a guy looking like he's about to beat a baby anyway relevant to the topic?

    It may have something to do with the name of the game, but is pertinent to the game in no way what-so-ever.

    That's an actual screenshot of the game. Prove it isn't.

    So anyways having played this game for about three blinding hours straight, I can safely say without malice aforethought that this game did commit terrible crimes of sin. Yes, sin officially exists, even for non-believers, after they play this truly unsolicited failure of a bowel movement called Imagine: Leper Colony. On the surface, which is all that makes up this shoddy title, it is very realistic. You spend a great deal of your time cleaning up poop, vomit, and other assorted bodily wastes, since that's all babies really do. Then you can get more babies to add to your repertoire when your drunk husband comes home after his nine-hours-a-day soul-crushing desk job in the wacky world of Enron and stock market bailouts and gas price gouging to shag you clumsily in the kitchen, where you'll be heating up milk bottles and getting formula spat up on your bloated, sagging bosoms and ever-widening ass from having so many goddamn babies.

    The AI is appropriate, because babies aren't very smart. You can't train your babies too well in this game. They very often fail to catch frisbees, which often times just land on your baby's face and just sort of sit there. You can decorate your babies though, painting on their faces with the stylus, and giving them "bling bling" just like notorious rapper HXC. There are also Olympic competitions, because YOU MUST LIKE SPORT, but the babies fare even less well in that. For instance, in the boating competition, the babies are too stupid to know how to row the oars, and end up drifting away.

    The difference in the (U) version is you don't need to leave babies in the woods based on their gender.

    The game ends when social services come by under falsified claims of abuse to take your babies away. You must remember not to facially whip your babies, as tempting as it is.

    Final tip: [​IMG]
    Prove it isn't true.

    I don't really care [about debate] and neither should anyone, but at least he's not trying to hit a baby seal. You gotta think positive like that.

    In fact, this picture is relevant, because hitting is manly, and there is an extensive amount of this game about having to gender-typify your children. Yes, even video games in this day and age wish to promote the barrier between the sexes, with boys = blue and soldiers, and women = pink and dolls. This sexist, self-fulfilling prophecy begins at the earliest stages which you see here in the game, binding women to the glass ceiling and men to a self-destructive agenda of complying against their will to the masculinity cycle.
