IDARB, the upcoming competitive title for Xbox One, is pretty zany across-the-board. But the title's post-game credits sequence has a heartfelt message for those who best IDARB's single-player campaign: Think before you comment.
Over adolescent pictures of the game's development staff and a parade of the game's user-generated characters, a moving ballad emphasizes to players that real people worked hard on the game, and to consider their feelings before providing any mean-spirited feedback. It extols the virtue of kind behavior, saying it might be rewarded with a PC port of the title — but not Mac and Linux, a decision the song also explains.
You can watch the post-credits sequence above, or read the song's lyrics below. IDARB will be free with Games for Gold when it launches next month. Look for our review of IDARB later this week.
These are the people
who made the game you're playing
They worked really hard
sometimes day and night
and often instead
of spending time with their families
they tried to ensure
that the gameplay was really tight.
So think before you comment
Please don't send that Tweet
Don't you rage upon the forums
Or take it to the streets!
These people do have feelings
just like you and me.
And if you treat them with kindness
they might port this to PC.
(But not Mac and Linux, 'cause there's just no market for it. Sorry.)
Despite all their efforts
you might find some bugs
They tried their best, but sometimes
it's just not enough.
Please don't go online
and start attacking.
Sometimes you'll find things are so much
better with hugs!
Think before you comment
Words can really hurt.
You can make a YouTube playthrough
and they might send you a shirt!
These people do have feelings.
They bleed, and yes, they cry
Don't send them threatening emails
You can stop it if you try!
If we all try
