The original Shockwave version launched in but went offline in early A successful crowdfunding campaign was launched in early on Kickstarter by some members of the original development team, who announced the re-release of the game as open-source in HTML5.
The original date for the game's relaunch was Septemberbut was delayed. An open beta test, started on 30 Julyis currently underway.
The gameplay is simple on its surface, but requires solid strategy to win consistently. The graphics are also simple, and were inspired by the work of " outsider artist " Henry Dargerillustrator Edward GoreyJapanese animeand early, 8-bit video games of the s.
In a departure from the androcentric norm in video games, all of the players in Sissyfight were rendered female and nonsexual. Sissyfight is often cited as an early example of a web-based MMOG in gaming development and academic circles. Three to six players — called "sissies" — can play in a single game with each player beginning a round with ten hearts, each heart representing one " self-esteem point".
The turn-based game hides a player's moves from the other players while in-game chat bubbles may be used to create alliances and coordinate their moves collectively. With each round, players try to eliminate each other's self-esteem until only two or occasionally one or none are left standing and proclaimed the winners of that game on a classroom-style blackboard. Failure to select a move before the timer reaches zero in -1 self-esteem point as a penalty, thereby gradually eliminating those who do not decide in time.
However, many players tease out consistently indecisive players. Additionally, if all the players make their decisions with more than 10 seconds left on the timer, the timer accelerates to a countdown from 10, ending the round early.
Players found several ways to cheat in the game. Most often, two players resort to using a third-party instant messaging service in order to coordinate their moves outside of the in-game chat interface. Other players developed more sophisticated methods, including running multiple sessions of the game and creating secondary or unregistered s " sock puppets " or "socks" to tilt a game's outcome in their favor.
The Honor Code, Sissyfight 's terms of servicestrictly forbids these behaviors. Players invented their own game variations, with unique rules.
For example, "Tease Tag" required everyone to tease, while "Tease The Slow" required everyone to tease the last person to make a move. Other variations included a "no cower" rule, which was faster-paced and concentrated more on offense. Since these variants were not hard-coded into the original game, some players did not follow the special rules. As a result, the other players themselves often enforced the rules themselves by teasing out the rulebreakers.
The funding ultimately fell short of meeting the stretch goal. The revival features these hard-coded variations which are specifically created sissy fight game the "special" option. Players may create their own game with a definitive title and identifier, which will have certain rules and challenges the normal game mode doesn't use. Some modes will disable certain defensive moves like lolly licking and cowering, others will prevent tattling to slightly increase difficulty, and others will make the timer speed up.
These can be combined to make rounds even more challenging.
