Bemused is a little different than most games in terms of post-game outcomes for the human world. In Bemused, there is a good outcome for the human world regardless of whether a sane virtuoso wins, an insane virtuoso wins, or the fantasmas win! It works like this...
A sane virtuoso wins:
The virtuoso’s muse is lauded as the most influential and worshiped as the most powerful. The virtuoso’s artistic creations become revered by society and the virtuoso’s art form becomes the cornerstone of artistic expression for generations to come. Think of classicism in sculpture and Baroque music as examples.
An insane virtuoso wins:
The backlash of the virtuoso’s madness unexpectedly opens their muse’s mind to new vistas of creativity and imagination. The virtuoso’s strange work and eccentric visions eclipse conventional norms of artistic expression and dominate the art world for a generation. Surrealism and Cubism are examples.
The fantasmas win:
The muses are thrown into stunned disarray as the fantasmas usher in a sea change in artistic representation and appreciation. Old aesthetics are destroyed, conventional norms are shattered, and a completely new era of artistic representation is born. This new era is unstable, however, and the muses immediately set to work to temper the perturbation and re-establish their influence over human artistic expression. Installation art and multimedia art are examples.
So, no matter who wins, human art benefits and grows!
Really dig the theme man! Only on the fence for your last effort due to my own financial mishandlings. Looking forward to seeing this one develop.
