The problem with creating articles like these that specifically highlight the game maker almost more so than the game(s) itself, is putting an elephant in the room and asking everyone to be civil and not comment on it.
These games are ok, fairly basic indie stuff that doesn't really draw me in one way or another. The developer seems likewise fairly standard in their commentary and motivations. It's everything outside of this very basic game-designer package which gets a bit unorthodox. Since this article presents the artist alongside the art, you immediately connect one with the other. I unwittingly followed the Tumblr link and to be perfectly honest, some of the stuff that I saw there made me a little more than uncomfortable - which in turn makes me associate that feeling with the games now and that pushes me away.
Is that rude for me to say? It really shouldn't be. As much as the developer has every right in the world to put that stuff up for everyone to see, to be shocked, inspired or offended, it is my right to actually feel offended when I do and be able to say as much. Now I wasn't offended per-se, but as I said it did make me feel uncomfortable.
The only reason I point this out more so than the content of the article itself is that I'm all for open discussion on the site, but that means being completely open about everything. This of course doesn't mean vitriolic and outright offensive comments should be tolerated, but I see so many people dancing around a point they're trying to make because they "don't want to sound like a jerk" when in fact they're just stating an opinion.
That said, Porpentine is generally inextricable from her work. She's made numerous comments about how her games and writing are literal extensions of herself. Another aspect of her work is that her games are necessarily built on creating that discomfort within her audience. By and large, I don't think Patrick could have written this article any other way. Plenty of the comments have absolutely been, "this makes me uncomfortable" - and that's a totally valid and reasonable response. However, it's not ok for people to resort to insults or to otherwise denigrate (well, anyone, but in particular the subject of the article) with dismissive namecalling. It's this last part that some folks continue to have problems with.
