No tears for the creatures of the night, bitch PLEASE. - TuxedoMane

I'm Nurvuss and I like making music and games and writing stuff. Sometimes it seems that I never have enough time to do any of these things. Let's be pals!

The Ring: Terror's Realm

I missed this one when it came out, but this game was loosely based on the 3rd Ring book that ruined the series by revealing the Ring 1 & 2 were set in a virtual reality world and Sadako was a virus program.

Gamergate Target Zoe Quinn Launches Anti-Harassment Support Network

Where does it say that people must pay to use Crash Override Network?

Where does it even say that this is a business?

Getting all het up over this is like accusing a suicide hotline or a battered women's shelter of 'making money off of misery'

The side quests give you some really neat items in DDS2 (but i didn't have the patience to finish dds2 so make of that what you will!)

[Game Jam] A Jam for Leelah

well said, Liberty. This probably isn't the time or place to critique semantics.

Pizza, how do you do it? (hours of laborious work I'm sure) You're a spriting G.


lololol craze!

How do you feel about dungeon crawling?

I thought Tartarus was a pretty interesting.


...I do tend to get a bit impatient if the game is story-heavy, but uses its plot beats as book-ends to several hours of plotless dungeon-crawling. This didn't happen so much in Persona 3, but it did irritate me in Soul Hackers and SMT Strange Journey.

Which is funny, because I can play a roguelike for hours. I guess it's because there's minimal plot in many roguelikes? I guess my preference is all or nothing?

Anyway, that's just my personal preference: If you're aiming to tell a deep story, don't pad it out with hours of no story.


[Game Jam] A Jam for Leelah

JamForLeelah Homepage

Hey, you guys may have heard the heartbreaking story of Leelah Alcorne, a teenage transgender girl who, after being pulled out of high school and forced to attend conversion therapy by her religious parents, tragically committed suicide on 28 December 2014.

Matt Boucher and Kara Jayne are hosting a Game Jam in Leelah's honour, to raise awareness of transgender issues and to also raise money for LGBTQ charities.

The jam is set to take place between 17 January and 17 February.

There are some guidelines:
Each submission must fit at least one of these requirements and be submitted before Midnight February 17th to be eligible for this jam:

Be primarily centered around trans issues, or other issues related to gender identity. This can be anything from having a trans protagonist to a game about growing up trans or navigating gender identity issues. Please be respectful, as anything that is purposefully disrespectful to the LGBTIQ community, or specifically the trans community, will be removed without hesitation.

Use inspiration from Leelah's art/music/ideas to primarily create a game, whilst still attempting to raise awareness about trans youth issues and trans representation in the execution of that idea. A small collection of Leelah's work can be found here.

Be inspired by Leelah's interests as expressed on her Tumblr e.g. sailor moon, female empowerment, fashion, anime, gaming, etc whilst still attempting to raise awareness about trans youth issues and trans representation in the execution of that idea. Leelah's Tumblr can be accessed via a backup here.

I don't know if I'll be able to take part as I'll be away for most of this period, but I sure would like to. I thought I'd spread the word in case anybody else was interested.
