If you are an artist, when you get stuck, draw bigger and on tracing paper when you are stuck. Consider this manual photoshop. Use scissors, trace, refine.
If you are a writer, when you get stuck, get a pad of paper and at least two colors of pen that contrast. When you get stuck, use your “replace this with actual language later” color. Just write what you want to say. “Make angry hero cry as villain drinks amazing latte. Figure out words later.”
If you get stuck in life, clean up your area and think about how big, and how small, the universe is. Either direction is practically infinite, suspending you in the middle.
If you are fey, remember when you weren’t. It will build compassion when you deal with mortals.
If you are a potato, please advise us how you use the Internet. We have so many questions, sentient spud bud.
DO NOT BUY THIS BRAND.
Pedigree is on a nationwide recall.
Pedigree made my 6 month old puppy too ill to eat anything for days.
If you have this brand please toss it and buy Purina, Science Diet, or Blue.
Please do not feed this to you animals.
Do not buy this brand.
"The Seattle Times reported on Sept. 2, 2014, that the recall is due to the bags containing small metal fragments.”
The following are a handful of poignant, unique or just unusual games I’ve encountered over the years, ones that have particularly left a mark on me.
There’ll be no defending towers or flinging birds here. Many of these are in the same vein as Myst, but others take different directions. Every single one of them is worth your time.
DayMare Town, a strange and oddly deserted town that gives the unsettling feeling that eyes are peering from around corners. It is a drab and dreary town, not a very pleasant place to be. But now you’re stuck, and you’ll do anything you can to leave.
Our coil is broken, and we don’t have a replacement. It’s useless. It’s so useless.
All that struggle with those damn machines. Is there even some kind of normal world outside this endless mess of submachine? Over and over again, no beginning nor end. What was his name? That man with one arm? I forgot even that.
I just give up. I don’t care anymore.
You Find Yourself In A Room
A game that slowly realizes that it hates you, and everything you stand for.
Throw yourself into the barbs.
Read carefully. Run and jump through the text of stories and poems, from the horror of Lovecraft’s “The Nameless City” to the simple beauty of Bashou’s frog haiku.
Take a poignant walk through the life of an alien caught in the midst of humanity. This is a game that you may not consider to be a game. It won’t tell you if you’ve won or lost. You won’t level up or defeat the final boss. It’s short. It’s simple. You might get nothing out of it at all. That’s fine. Just try and be respectful to those who do.
THIS WORLD IS A LIE
WAKE UP PETE
RING THE DORE BELL
Aggressively puts this back on my blog.
Play every single one of these, damn it.
You are absolutely right because I’ve played all of these already. Daymare Town has a really soft place in my heart especially.
