Or a calming quote might work too. 😉
I find that quote very calming.
No, the quote was more a joke on how after the computer screws you with bad dice, it asks you condescendingly if you’re sure you want to quit.
Yes I want to quit you **** computer, why do you think I am pressing this button with a mad gleam in my eye?
But jokes aside - I think saying directly to the player that the program is sorry for bad dice is counter-intuitive, because it’s the program that gave the bad dice in the first place. If the program were REALLY sorry it would give better dice, or maybe have a Low-Luck option or something right?
Maybe some quotes from history would prove apt.
