Dude, Stop! - A Game About Being A Jerk

No need to take a second glance. These here sentences are in Comic Sans MS. Sit here and bask in its anti-glory. Please don't kill me I played the demo just a few minutes ago, and I feel like Dude, Stop! is on its way to some level of indie greatness.

In Dude, Stop!, your victories are measured by just how skilled you are in being the most annoying little jerk there is. Break the rules, reshape the odds, and wear your socks and sandals proudly for those trophies - and do it again, while you're still going hot. Come on, you know you want to...

Dude, Stop! has recently been Greenlit by the Steam Community and will be up for sale there. In the meantime, give the crash-course a whirl on! 
a more comprehensive review will become available when Dude, Stop! is available as a full game to the public; I am currently sick right now, but I am currently working on more playthroughs and reviews at this moment

Morning Review: Beneath Floes

"Qikiqtaaluk, 1962. The sun falls below the horizon and won't return for months. You wander the broken shoreline, wary of your mother's stories about the qalupalik. Fish woman, stealer of wayward children: she dwells beneath the ice."
-Premise, Beneath Floes
I've known of Beneath Floes for a long, long time now. Having discovered that it was a hypertext story, I felt it perfect to write about during National Novel Writing Month, an event I'm taking part in for the fourth year in a row.

As of 5:21 AM, I have finished the game, and I'm so excited to tell you about it.

One Day Cosplay: William T. Spears

When I heard that it was going to be storming on Halloween, I realized that I could neither be a faun nor Wilson to an outdoor geek event that I was going to. So, at six in the morning on Halloween day, I proposed that I would put together a new costume. After a lot of work, caffeine, and mumbling around on Twitter, I completed a successful cosplay of Black Butler's William T. Spears to go with the Grell Sutcliff and Sebastian Michaelis who were both attending.

An Itch(io) for Short Games

Twice a month, I'm completely without my big, beautiful gaming computer and am left with my low-storage, low-variety MacBook to create a Monday morning post with. Since there are issues with cross-platform save files, my criteria was harsh: OS X compatible, free, short, and good., a popular website for sharing indie games (many of them free), came to the rescue. Over the night of Saturday the 24th, I sat down and played anything short that struck my fancy. Read on for my thoughts.

Awake for HoT, and On Being Informed

Long story short, I had a post in the making earlier Thursday afternoon, and...uh, fell asleep on the couch... So have a journal instead.

It's about 11:34 PM at the time of this writing. I woke up at approximately 10:45 and immediately realized that I was supposed to be writing that blog post and that I had just completely wasted my six hours of dedicated work space. However, I did poke a little at my Twitter and realize through my haze of sleepiness that Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns would be released in ample time.
