Perform a live concert in Comedy Night, now on Linux

Posted by , / 3027 views

Comedy Night [Steam], an online game about performing comedy in front of a live audience has recently released the Linux version.

It would be interesting to be in the audience, but I can't imagine joining a server and attempting to do the comedy myself, I think nerves would get the better of me even if I'm not technically there in person. I'm also not that funny! I can do grumpy, I'm rather good at that.

About the game:

Perform
Perform in front of a live audience as an individual or go head to head with another performer. If you are an aspiring comedian this is a great sandbox to try out new material and perfect your show. If you can sing, see how a live audience responds in the open mic singing rooms or take other players down in rap battle sessions.

Watch
Be part of the audience and decide which performers stay or go by voting them off the stage. Heckle players or encourage them as they do their best to entertain you.

Create
Players have full control over custom avatars as they use different styles and animations to enhance the performance.

I've watched some videos on it and some of the stuff people say is just—yeah, awful. Some people try really hard and end up getting told to f-off and all kinds of crazy things. I do love the idea, but people are terrible. Some of it does look funny though, but most of what I've seen is just people swearing at each other.

Totally unsure on this one.

Thanks for the tip NuSuey.

Quotepeople are terrible

The basic problem of most online games.

Indeed. I checked out some vids and while the premise is great and could be a lot of fun, unfortunately it could get tiring wading through the idiots.

Might be fun with a GOL only crowd though Don't know how you could control the audience, I'll take a cautionary glance anyway.

Don't think I will need this particular game. I can get the same experience on Friday evenings with OBS.

If you ask me, this looks much more like an online platform for comedians (amateur or not) to share their material than a videogame.

The "game" is just a semi-static 3D Voice only chatroom where you get to hear some of the worst behaviour of the internet. That's all there is to it.

It's also pure YouTuber fodder.

Yeah, this is pretty much how I ended up feeling about it.

You should still do a GOL only thingy

Well I actually picked this up Seemed like it was worth a punt at that price. I've only given it a very brief testing though but it does appear to work perfectly on Linux (so far).

The game is still being developed actively and it looks like they're working to give room owners the powers to silence, kick and ban users, so the "nasty" elements are getting contained. Find a room with a decent admin and it could be a lot of fun.

p.s. I generally avoid any online gaming so I surprised myself by getting this one

I just played through Tacoma.
I guess you'll like it if you liked Gone Home and/or Firewatch.
