By sheer coincidence, the day I downloaded it was the same date as the in-game calendar (though the weekdays don’t line up). As such, I’ve arbitrarily decided to play it in “real time” for as long as it is possible to do so, not progressing past the current date.
Every time I go to the City of Reality homepage and see that holiday page, I die a little more inside.
Ack, can’t have that! I’ll be uploading this bit of WIP show there just to show that the train is moving again. Got the final scripts ready, the sketch phase done, and redid much of the pages that had technical difficulties.
Since it’s been awhile, also doing a ‘Previously on Reality’ page to remind everyone where we were. Also, gonna stop flailin’ on it and put a date down.
Reality will come back on April 7th! First, with a MWF week where I split up one large page, and then going to do a T/Th schedule for the rest.
This track has a little bit of easy-listening, funky, muzak vibe going for it. The main source, Heart of the Forest by Solatrus, is a little more solemn. But combined with Flare, all that brooding, threatening tone is diminished, and it’s more about the jam than the attitude.
Oh hey, that’s one of mine!
Not sure if I ever actually posted the final album version of this here.
Going through my backlog of Steam games, I’ve been on a bit of an adventure game kick as of late. Today I played through To the Moon, which is currently available as part of Humble Bundle X.
To the Moon’s graphics and gameplay are somewhat antiquated (looking like something made in one of the earlier releases of RPG Maker), so I didn’t really know what to expect going in. I was very pleasantly surprised.
I won’t say much about the game itself for fear of spoilers, however the storytelling and soundtrack are phenomenal. The humor is endearingly dumb, and the characters are fleshed out masterfully. I teared up several times throughout, which is pretty rare these days.
Beautiful little game if you can get to the end without your heart breaking.
In case you were curious, the site is back up. We might also be looking in the future to host some of the other Gaiden albums with permission from RJ (received), and also Hussie and the respective owners. Again, we stress, all of this music is NON-OFFICIAL. It’s not put forward by Hussie, but by the fans themselves!
In terms of where LoFaM is, I know I’ve said for ages that we’re reaching the end and it seems like it keeps dragging on but we are assembling a final ordered track list now, and uploading content, so we’re reaching the head of the process. No ETA yet, but stay tuned for more developments!
• BlizzCon!!!! Meeting up with guildies, play testing D3 on PS4 and the new WoW expansion, seeing the world SC2 finals live. Totally a blast!
• Many board and card games. Betrayal at the House on the Hill, Arkham Horror, Flash Point, Galaxy Trucker, and Epic Spell Wars of the Battle Wizards: Duel at Mt. Skullzfyre to name a few.
• Full clears of Amnesia: Machine for Pigs, Silent Hill Downpour, and Rayman: Legends (All 700 Teensies!). A good deal of The Stanley Parable, Starcraft II, and a couple wings of SoO flex raid as well.
• Much good food. Sukiyaki, ramen, In-N-Out Burger, crepes, takoyaki, Mongolian BBQ, sushi bentos,
A large group of well known Homestuck musicians have just put our a new album called Shortcuts! Collectively, they are known as Casual Sunday (Causal Sundae?) and they’re very excited about this album. This album draws live recordings from the locations that all the different musicians live in, and uses that as a baseline for each of their songs.
Check it out! It’s pretty dang cheap (Only $3.50) and they’ve been working really hard on it for a long time!
This was the first shareware game I ever registered. This was back before internet registration, so you actually had to mail a check in to the company, who would send back a postcard with the code on it. I still have it lying around somewhere.
Amazing space exploration game for its time, and the standard to which I hold all others in the genre.
