Psst. What’s the pass phrase?
Censorship is a pain in my wombat ass. The Wombat Trap’s roots are on Steam, and Steam doesn’t allow naughty-naughty words or images. To describe adult content, I was forced to come up with some. . . creative solutions. I dug deep inside my ‘bat-cranium, and I invented a new English dialect called Wombatnese. Or uh, Wombathai. . . ? Some folk call it wombat slang. Whatever you prefer, my word choice may differ from the average writer. With that in mind, I wrote this handy-dandy article to help you translate my work!
I don’t usually use these words without helpful context, but you may desire a more concrete definition on them. You may wonder why I don’t take advantage of reduced censorship (off Steam). Well, part of me considers “wombat slang” to be part of the Wombat Trap’s charm. Additionally, maintaining wombat slang (versus going all-out) allows me to share Wombat Trap content on platforms with less lax censorship.
Now let’s learn some vocabulary!
