Hi! I just really wanted to make a wallpaper like this, yeah ik its super pointless haha. I just noticed that people type "..." into a speech bubble often when they are about to be blown to bits. I just thought it was funny, so I wanted to make a parody out of it. Big Grin It's pretty minimalistic. Feel free to use it xD

So, the ... is a mild easter egg poking fun at a certain dev's response to stuff that he finds annoying/stupid.

It has an advantage that an empty bubble is set to that instead, so it is pretty fast to type when you're about to die.
'' or "" or -- is only 4 keystrokes including the t and [enter]

I don't think he is making fun of anyone in particular. I have actually seen many people do the ... bubble thing. Now on a related note, that image is very simple yet very awesome.
me likes Big Grin

Thank you Shadow; I would never target 1 person and make fun of them. I don't even know the dev nemo is speaking of. As I said, many players do this during the game. Also, I'm glad you like it Big Grin! Thanks!

I phrased it badly.
"..." is such a rich phrase w/ so many uses by dev in particular.
Shows the universe is not aligning itself w/ your desires.
That you were unpleasantly surprised.
That you were struck speechless by something or other that was just beyond words.
Plus, he doesn't talk as much as I do anyway :-p

It think it fits well for this usage.
Besides, it was just at the time we had a running joke about the ellipses of death Smile

It has caught on anyway, I find myself using the ... too in chat w/ people.

Anyway, for the game it is nice, 'cause it is a fast and wordless response Big Grin
