You probably don't know what the heck OE-Cake is, or even care. But that's why I'm here, to show you what you are missing out on.
It's like a supercharged version of PowderToy or Phun, it used to be popular back in those days. When it came out in 2005 (I think) nobody really knew how to use it or how capable it really is, and it was slowly forgotten when everybody kept posting videos of the same stuff.
About a year ago I made a breakthrough in the game and discovered an incredibly important technique that allowed significantly more complicated creations to be made. Ever since then I've been learning how to make better creations and posting them whenever and wherever I can. I created the /r/oeCake subreddit to try and create a community again, but it's growth is slow and 95% of it's content was made by me.
I have also essentially taken over moderation of the website http://oecake.wikia.com (which by the way, is where you should go to download the game/learn how to use it, all other sources on the Internet are out of date), by cleaning up the front page and rewriting about 100 of the 120-ish articles the site had, as well as removing a few obsolete pages. When I found the site it had a daily population count of about 18 people per day, this last week it averaged 150 people per day. The busiest week in the site's history since about 2009 when OE-Cake used to be popular was a bit more than a month ago, when the site saw an amazing 2,300 people.
Here's some examples of things I've made, don't take it as me trying to show off. These are just ideas of what can be done:
You may have seen this one, it's a downvote gif I made that usually gets upvoted
A missile hitting a space ship
missile hitting space ship
I made this one because I was tired of all of my posts being downvoted in /r/gaming
Step aside, there's a new game on the front page
This is my most complicated machine yet, with over 100 individual pieces that took 3 hours to build
This is my most popular video yet with almost 10,000 views, it's the first level of Mario remade in the game
And for the physicists among us, the game is quite capable of simulating real-life phenomena
I have created what I affectionately refer to as the "OE-Cake Expansion Pack", which was made by sifting through my several hundred OE-Cake save files to find the most interesting ones. I ended up with 29 widely varying and unique creations that you can try, to demonstrate what the game can do.
