Also, why do I enjoy designing busywork and menial tasks in games the most? I have a whole concept based on managing something relatively menial to give you buffs in the core loop. I have NO idea what the core loop is gonna be, but that secondary interaction is fully thought out.

I think I'm slowly starting to realize that I'm an interaction / UI designer and that I've been so this entire time. What the heck.

It's been so long since I've gone anywhere that today I had to dust off my shoes.

Is that what you said when you completely erased Duncan's husband and ANY mention or hint of his sexuality from Locke & Key?

I made a very small narrative game, about closeness and sunlight and shared moments. I'd love it if you played it.

It was all made for Nordic Game Jam Online, in 48 hours, and I'd never used before. I'd been wanting to turn Copacabana into a story for a long time, and this jam's theme really fit that idea.

viento en popa a toda vela,
no corta el mar, sino vuela
