Play a game with me … Dungeons and Lesbians

Hey! Those of you following me on social media (or knowing me IRL) may have noticed that I have been promoting itch.io’s “Racial Justice and Equality” Bundle … There’s no real reason behind it except that I actually like the idea and it’s something I want to support. You get a massive amount of games, engines, assets, pnps and so much more for 5$ or more and all of the proceeds will be donated to Black Lives Matter!And as gamers we have a huge problem of racism, sexism and homophobia within our community (mostly with mainstream following people I feel like … The indie scene seems so much more chill) so anything that promotes a different view is welcome here!So as a way to promote this: I thought I’d just play through a couple of games from the bundle. I am a bit nervous to show this to you, though … It’s a bit embarassing. But all for the greater good, right? The offer ends in 4 or 3 days so go on over there …

2020 Gaming List

In case you haven’t read my 2020 Reading List, here’s the deal: A while ago I updated this sweet little site of mine with reading, watching and currently playing lists respectively. I did so quickly and I did so in an attempt to give this blog more shape and to get a better connection to everyone who may stumble upon it. Well, I felt inspiration strike this morning and I want to do this a little differently, now: Instead of adding specific titles to the list I’m gonna go more by concept and ideas and general categorizations. This way I hope to expand my horizons a little bit. The world of media is huge and plentiful and there may be books I’ve never heard of before. I may only find them by opening myself up to broader options. It may also help me get some recommendations by people who are more familiar with the things I have not yet discovered.So: Here’s my new and improved reading list for 2020 and some rules you may or …

Post of the Month – January 2020

Good Morning, evening or afternoon, friends.
I thought I might start some new things in 2020 – even though I am not entirely sure of what all of those may be – but here is one of the new things I’m trying: I want to put my month into a blog post – which would then make twelve posts a year – for you to read and enjoy.
I’m not sure, what this Post of the Month will include but I am feeling like using it as some sort of way to look back and reflect on all sorts of things: It’s gonna be a little personal, I may include things I’ve achieved each month, I may talk about products I used and liked, new revelations, plans, movies, games, music or updates on projects all of those things.
Secondly, I’d like to include some future-oriented content: What are my plans, what’s my watchlist? That sort of stuff.
I am starting with my Post of the Month – January 2020 and figure things out along the lines …

Some Thoughts on Actual Sunlight

I recently finished playing Actual Sunlight. It’s not the longest game or the prettiest game and you probably never heard of it to begin with ( I mean, if you have, good on you!). But all that fits in perfectly well with the game itself and its protagonist: Actual Sunlight is not a happy game. It’s a game about depression and loneliness. The short description on steam reads: Take a walk on the thin line between hope and despair in Actual Sunlight: A short interactive story about love, depression and the corporation. Disclaimer Steam also gives a disclaimer: The game is not supposed to be played by people under 18 and I think that’s a very important thing to note: It contains strong language, sexual allusions and – obviously – references to depression and suicide. I am not sure if I’d say it’s not made for players under 18 … I feel like we usually underestimate children’s and especially teenager’s capacities to deal with these sorts of topics. But please be a little self aware: …

3 Multiplayer Games for Single Players

I’m not a huge multiplayer. I prefer Single Player Games. There’s several reasons for that: Fisrt of all, I enjoy a good story, something that usually gets lost in multiplayer games. They’re usually more about gameplay and that’s totally fine! We as gamers are such a diverse community, not just in race, gender and sexuality but also in tastes and priorities.Multiplayer games are also more about competition, something that isn’t quite my thing. I usually want to explore a game on my own, at my own time and so on. And lastly there’s something very deterring about having complete strangers on voice chat. I am so sorry but I do not wish to be screamed at by 12-year olds. For a long time I’ve avoided anything tagged „multiplayer“ with a passion and accuracy and could never bring to anything of real importance. But I’m trying to change that: I’d like to be more social in my anti-social endevours. So here are a few games I’ve kinda grown to love even though there not usually up …
