    My project right now, I'm mostly sharing with friends though I'm using an ironic/sarcastic/satirical sense of humor because people have complimented me for being fairly good at that. I'm by no means a comedy expert and would just stick to what I know I'm good at, watch my friends look at my cutscenes, see what sticks, see what doesn't stick. Rewrite scenes that get weaker reactions

    I see self-deprecating is one of the least voted on, not surprised because that sense of humor doesn't make me laugh, it makes me depressed.

    Relatable? Yeah. I agree. I find it more sad than funny ;_;

    I have a soft spot for puns and silly cuteness, the cheesier the better. It's somewhat rare to see good natured punnery in games, but the best examples I can think of are Lailah in Tales of Zestiria and... like half the scenes in World of Final Fantasy.

    Items and quests are a good place for this. My favorite example of the former is Before the Echo, though special mention to Xenosaga, in which a certain character wears gloves to actually dampen their angelic themed powers - their ultimate weapon is the Holey Gloves; full of holes. The king of punny quests is probably Final Fantasy XIV.

    My own games tend to be sort of serious, which somewhat irks me. Maybe someday I'll make a comedy. :kaopride:

    I like situational based and character-based comedy.
    You know what your character is thinking and feeling and you know what they wanna do, but the weird situation make it difficult to do so and they don't get hurt badly by it...
    Does that make sense?

    I mean, this might not be helpful, but what's funny is funny.
