  1. Important If True 45: Wax House, Baby

    Sadly, repeated alterations like that would lead to the page being locked down, which is no fun for anyone. At least the edit history sticks around, which paired with this podcast makes for a good historical record.
  2. I was blown away ( by the level of deep nerd lore with this inclusion. The way it reaches across multiple series really got my fan-ganglia quivering.
  3. Photos of things

    If you want to stay in the free zone, maybe look into Darktable? I've never used it, but it just came to windows. Could be worth a peek!
  4. Holy shit, this story at the top. Chris! Good grief.
  5. Star Trek Bridge Crew, Goggles or No

    I've thought about getting it; I love Artemis. I don't have a current HMD, so I wonder if it's still fun without that. It's cool that they removed the requirement, but it seems like it could feel pretty slight without that part of the experience.

    This blog seems relevant:
  8. Episode 416: Dominions 5: Warriors of the Faith

    This is a dumb observation, but I love how this game handles wacky resolutions and stuff, which seems pretty unusual for an indie game like this. I can play it in 4K on my laptop (on low settings) and have super sharp text and stuff, but the UI is scaled to a reasonable size. Like, the UI size is independent of the resolution. Like I said, not that interesting, but I really appreciate it!
  9. The Mind-Tech Contingency

    Here's the page. You can find a direct link to the twine here. And a tumblr post with the full credits of all my stolen content here. This was fun! I've started a few twines in the past (mostly for Wizard Jams), but this is the first time I've seen something through to what I'd consider a complete state. In the spirit of jamming, the soundtrack (which will only play on PCs, not on mobile) was a pretty rough one-take kind of thing, but I like the way it came out. It takes a while to get to the part with the hot beats, so hopefully people don't play through the twine too fast to hear it!

    Sounds like a good idea. Thanks!
  11. GOTY of the Year

    Zelda Yakuza Kiwami Mario Honorable mentions: Ogre (A totally good electronic adaptation of a totally great wargame) Wipeout Omega Collection (it's basically 2 remasters, but they jammed so much good stuff in there) Assassin's Creed Origins (such mixed feelings about so many aspects of this game, but I played the hell out of it, so I must have liked it?) Also all the repackaged for the umpteenth times Neo Geo ports for the switch, which just feels like the perfect home for them, except for the lack of a good d-pad. Even the Pro Controller isn't up to scratch, in my opinion.

    So good!
  13. WIZARD JAM 6 // Welcome Thread

    Well, here it is: The itch page is just a link to this other hosting. Itch does some weird stuff with embedding twines that jacks up the formatting real bad. If anyone gives it a go, let me know if it works. If you're playing on a computer, there should be music (which doesn't work on mobile), and the font should be futuristic. It's a modest outing, but I still feel accomplished for having actually finished one of these for once. I've started a ton of twines in the past, but I never saw them through.
  14. Important If True 41: A Very Happy Cow

    Check out this GLaDOS type shit: The conversation about "friendly" home robots reminded me of it. The brushless motor-driven camera gimbal-style body actually seems like a cool idea; you can confer a jaunty attitude to an otherwise alien-looking device with the right kind of motion.
