So like last year a friend of mine had been catcalled when going to the store for the millionth time, so I was all ‘hey I’ll write a short story about catcalling’ and then I did, and this is it. It contains some typical misogynistic catcalling language but also is hopefully pretty funny so yeah.

Earlier today I saw a new app on Steam, Manga Maker ComiPo, and it looked pretty fun, and also quite an easy way for someone with no art skills to make storyboards. So I messed around with it tonight and made the following cheerful little comic strip.

The world is a strange, scary place. So strange, and so scary in fact, that sometimes the temptation is there to put pen to paper, and write a think piece on just how terrible and wrong some innocuous things are. It is hard, being around people and things that are different from you, and it is understandable that sometimes you want to clear your throat into your hankie, and just let rip with an angry rant about those other (and let’s face it, lesser) people who Do Things You Don’t Like. So here are five article ideas for when you’re sloshed on brandy and really want to tear the 21st century a new one.

Surgeon Simulator 2013: The Interns

Surgeon Simulator 2013

A while back, before I was working full time on Starbound, I made the first steps to apply for a freelance writing job at Bossa, the developers behind the awesome Surgeon Simulator 2013. As it was, I ended up working on Starbound just days after sending the email, so wasn’t able to take the application any further (the game I would’ve been working on looks super cool btw) but as a writing sample, I sent in this Surgeon Simulator fanfiction which I’ve decided to share here. Enjoy!

Twine

Published on Jan 26th, 2013 by

Twine! Twine! Twine.

I make some stuff in Twine. Here, I will be collecting my Twine games, along with links to some other cool Twine games. If you have made a Twine game or know of an awesome one that I haven’t already listed, please feel free to leave a comment/link. Would be especially great to hear from others who’ve made some. I will try and keep this post updated, because.

MY TWINE:

Simmons | Simmons Mobile - (use this one if on a mobile device obviously, or if the layout is broken for you)

Don’t Read The Comments | Don’t Read The Comments Super HD Probably Broken Edition - (this version was me trying a fancy layout. It looks great for me but apparently is broken on almost every other resolution/browser, so play at your peril)

Never Have I Ever - co-created with Feng Shui consultant to the stars Molly Carroll, who also did the art.

All The Dead Bones – A game I made about myself and trying to live with things. I still don’t know how I feel about having released it.

More to come.

 

OTHER TWINE:

Incomprehensible Casino Enforcer by Lana Polansky

Howling Dogs by Porpentine

Cyberqueen by Porpentine

More to come.

 

FINALLY:

You should make a Twine game if you haven’t already. Porpentine has collected a bunch of resources here so I’d suggest bookmarking this page because it’s awesome and helpful. Start by reading Anna Anthropy’s guide first, and go from there.
