Screw the dev with full force in every available orifice.
Holy shit I can be a soldier for $200? And only 2 spots remaining? HOLY SHIT CLICK CLICK PASSWORD PLEDGE CONFIRMED whoa.
I’m interested in having my portrait done as a soldier in the game. What are the restrictions?
These requirements are:
• You are male (unfortunately there are no female soldiers in Xenonauts)
• Your portrait looks between the ages of 20-35 (the age range of soldiers in Xenonauts)
• Your portrait matches the default soldier body type (body weight etc)
"Unfortunately?" Aren't YOU the devs? This is year 1979, which means the Soviet Union is still around, and there are female machinegunners, tank crewmembers and pilots.
In fact, let me tell you a little story about crowdsourcing.
In 1942 an Omsk newspaper printed the following reader's letter. (Omsk is one of the cities in the Urals where civilians from the Nazi-occupied parts of the USSR were evacuated.)
My name is Ada Zanegina. I'm six years old and I write in block letters. Hitler drove me from my home town Sychovka in the Smolensk region. I want to go home. I have saved 122 roubles 25 kopeikas to buy a doll. Now I give the money to build a tank. Dear Uncle Editor! Please tell all the children to give their money for the tank. We’ll name it “Little One”. When our tank defeats Hitler, we’ll go home.
The children of Omsk collected enough money to commission a light tank (T-60). The tank’s mechanic/driver was a woman, Ekaterina Petluk. She survived the war and eventually met Ada (although the Little One tank was decommissioned in the autumn of 1943, and she continued fighting in an advanced model, T-70).
...The devs won't miss my pledge, but they are still greasy chauvinist fuckheads.
