So there is an upcoming game here
And there is a content warning.
However it is vague, and while I am sure we are all adults and can deal…I am interested if anyone has a method of shorthand that most would know…personally I would use books and or movies, but as I have aged, I don’t know if certain books carry the same impact they did back in the day, or if they are as understood as their shorthand.
I am sure Video games are decent, but there is little common ground as you go dark. This War of Mine comes to mind, but if you didn’t play it, you don’t understand.
The movie “Seven” equals gut wrenching mystery that is going to end tragically, and there is little you can do about it.
The Book “IT” supernatural horror, along with terrible choices and no one believing you…mental health and all sorts of other nastiness. (did not see the movies yet, am waiting to see them both in a marathon.)
The movie Eyes Wide Shut, is a crazy inclusion into a world few conceive of as being there, and bad things happen, and you can’t do a thing about it.
The movie Event Horizon, all you hold dear is used against you in the most horrific way imaginable.
I am trying to keep from mentioning trauma that is triggering, but using movies or other pop-culture references to paint the picture of the subject matter.
I guess I am asking what is a decent way to warn people, and not trigger people at the same time? If we want to explore the darker side of humanity in a game.
