Squish or Treat 2018!
Squish or treat 2017 had a CYOA game within Cassi, it was still part of Cassi 1.0, so in 2018 the whole game was ported to a website and new chapters and sections were added. You could play the game and reach endings on the website and use the commands from within the website to collect Pins for your licence! Acquiring the Pins also allowed you to use the specific commands connected to said pins! The Pins only lasted for the whole event but the game can still be played here: https://halloween.thesquishgang.com/
The event art was also the BIGGEST event ART in TSG!'s history with over 35 characters in one picture! It was line arted by: @Calem and colored by: @Cheesedoggers!

TSG!'s 16+ Policy Change.
Due to a lot of feedback and internal debates, we decided to make TSG!'s Discord server 16+ only. This was not a decision which was done lightly and not the entire staff agreed on it. We thank everyone, and are deeply sorry those affected by it.
