What about change to "Onanist's Dream".

"Wanker" is more commonly used as derogatory term, rather than describing somebody who masturbates..

Using "Wanker's Dream" is the same as something like "Asshole's Adventure", or "Dickhead's Delight"

IMO, that is awful! People have to know what an Onanist is for it to be suggestive. At least English speakers in the U.S. would kind of know what a wanker is. How about "Wet Dream"? It could be sexually suggestive but wet can also mean to sweat suggesting an intense nightmare. It's also less crude (not slang) and less offensive than wanker.

Slang and colloquial meanings can vary a lot by geography.

It can be funny in a crude slapstick kind of way. How about "Beavis and Butthead do America"? It made $63 million dollars so people didn't find it too offensive. You might think using an original copy of the U.S. Constitution as "T.P. for his bunghole" would be offensive to some types of people but then politicians here at the highest level do it all the time, metaphorically speaking, by violating it. I better stop here as we can have an in depth conversation about wankers, assholes and porn but even hint at anything political or religious and the censor police will show up.

That's why I suggested it

I'm not sure if the author is trying to be serious with the sexual connotation, or humorous.. or a combination of both.

Kind of bizarre really.. which is why I like it

You have to justify the title somehow. You shouldn't have chosen it if there's nothing about wanking in the game.

Thanks for many suggestions.

To be honest I don't want to drop the stimulating word because...(my post #10).
On the other hand,
I'm afraid someone feels that "Send this game to sadly wankers!".
Of course I don't mean such intention.

In game, I didn't mention that the main actor is a wanker.
All that we can is just imagination(suspecting that he might be a wanker).
Each player has to fill the role of such a poor man,
and kill each other in a stagnant situation.
This plot is "a GLOOMY story" which I wanted to mean.

BTW I want to avoid "onanist" word.
In Japan, 99.9% people know "onanie" word,however,
99.9+% people don't know "wanker" word.
So I thought "wanker" becomes a cool slang(secret language) instead "onanist"
when I was developing this game.
But when I tested EAB mates' reactions...,


...Anyway, "Wet Dream" seems the nearest our goal at this time.
(Thanks a lot,matthey!)

Any suggestions after reading this my comment?

And, what do you think my English at "Story" screens?
Were you able to understand storyline?


PS.
In the summer 2014,I also planned "Immoral Cumbat AGA" as Gloom MOD.
Needless to say I had to use penis for gun's sprite and objects.
Unfortunately it becomes illegal in my country unless we add a mosaic effect to the penis.
"Immoral Cumbat with mosaic effects" = pointless to port...

in fact it may be too late because even the term "Onanist" is a Biblical reference. It comes from the sin of Onan who, in the Old Testament, "spilled his seed upon the ground" although his sin was really not masturbation at all but refusing to give his brother's widow a child as required by ancient custom, by withdrawing at the last moment...

Hi,
At last I decided to drop that sub title.
Anyway thanks a lot for discussion and suggestions.
Now archive becomes version 1.1 .
Features:
Japanese version is now available.
JP version still has "wanker" word.
I think what a good idea.

Next I'm going to create screenshots for HOL entry.

But even now "telling wrong/strange English" is welcome.
(I cannot edit soon though.)

Well wanker doesn't mean Gloomy, gloomy is bleak, depressed, dismal and sad etc....

I totally understood that this was a game by and for wankers, the type of guys who get erections from playing doom like games on their Amiga computers, and overclock etc just to get higher FPS number etc.

Gloomy Autumn comes...

Big updates:
Improved gory scenes! 128 colors are used for gory textures.
Hoodlums & other challengers' sprites were totally remade.
Specters & shadow men' s eyes flash.
...,etc.
To see details of this update, visit "Ultimate maze" webpage.

It's not commercial title, so no age limit was applied, however,
please don't let your little children play this game.
It would be a bit harmful.

Fucking hell, are people that prude that the word "wanker" upsets you? I can't believe what just happened above.
Bring back whatever name you want for it mate. Make it wanker, asshole, or whatever you want!! Don't listen to these people telling you what you do with your work.

I'm not convinced that any of this is happening. I think I may have had a brain haemorrhage, and no-one has got round to checking me into the emergency room.
