This was standard at the time to distinguish videogame RPGs from traditional pen and paper tabletop RPGs.

Just know that pure numbers are not as important as quality supporters who actually care about your work. Some of the greatest artists on Twitter have less than 10k followers!
https://twitter.com/Phil_Lewis_/status/1629266216123596802I'm not even talking about legality or ethics. Just speaking purely selfishly, think about all the art/music/literature/etc that you enjoy. Do you want it all to be drowned out by endless derivative variations made with no effort? Whose only goal is to get clicks?
