Alternatives depend on context: allow/deny, permit/prevent, approve/reject, pass/block. And so on.

Making sure my war game is anti-fascist Show more
So I'm making a game about crewing an allied tank in an alt-history WW2 to blow up Nazis. What could be more anti-fascist than that? Lots of stuff, it turns out. The problem is that Nazis aren't the only fascists, and my game does some things that potentially support fascist modes of thought.
I've been promising it for a while, and I've done an update to Script Change! https://briecs.itch.io/script-change Please check it out!
We reached our first stretch goal! Check out the update for info on our other stretch goals still to come AND a special surprise from Brie! Congrats Anders!
Less than $50 to our first stretch goal! Who is going to take us over?

Last Boost: Seriously, check this one out. Turn looks amazing, and the stretch goals are unique and honestly I'm impressed at the breadth and variety being considered, here.
Mostly, though, you owe it to yourself to check it out, share it with friends, and if you can, pledge to support it. 💜
Thanks for listening, and you're welcome in advance.
