hi Porpentine! I just wanted to let you know that we featured your work as an example in our shufPoetry Experimental Poetry Jam. Is this okay? If not I will of course take it down, and apologies for asking after the fact and not before. Hope you are well and thriving!

Just curious, but would you ever add some of your newer stuff to this collection?
I actually have updated it in the past, but to add the few twines I've made since then would be too much labor. They'll have to be enjoyed in their browser solitude. Thank you for your inquiry to PorpCo and have a nice day!
Is this is available for purchase on Steam? There's a problem with my zip code on my debit card since I've moved, but Steam still lets me purchase games. I'd love to buy this compilation, being a huge fan of all these games. (Ultra Business Tycoon III as my very favourite), I know it's been greenlit!
thank you! it works just fine on steam but we've ran into every kind of meta obstacle getting it validated, we've tried for over a year with no luck. if i ever find someone with the technical/bureaucratic knowledge to satisfy the arcane requirements of steam, i'll happily sell it there.
This collection is fucking amazing. That's what my long gushy review amounts to.
To get this to work on 64-bit Linux, you'll need to install some 32-bit libraries. On Linux Mint, you can get most of the way by installing the ia32-libs library (via synaptic, or `sudo apt-get install ia32-libs`) but you also need the 32-bit version of GTK 3.0 which you can do via the command line (`sudo apt-get install libgtk-3-0:i386`)
i read your earlier review too but didn't have a chance to reply -- thanks for your thoughtful, kind comments, and thanks for the helpful linux tip for future survivors in this barren wasteland of Internet 3 :]
