Hella useful. So useful I just used the word “hella” to describe it. Which is pretty damn useful in case you were wondering. If you are still struggling to see how useful this may well be then I recommend then you see a doctor. Cause it’s usefulness can be equated to that of a doctors. A doctor in need of some ILL TUNES or SICK BEATS. Lucky he’s a doctor cause HE’LL SORT THAT SHIT RIGHT OUT. Why the fuck are you still reading this? go to the website already.
It’s rare that a computer game will reach any sort of artistic heights in todays gaming climate. And this is even more so true for a flash game, a genre more associated with “Bin’laden in a Blender” then any kind of artistic endeavor. However I have come across a few rare and wonderful diamonds in this considerable rough. And I’ll share the first with you today;
Every day the same dream (EDSD for easy of use) is a small free online game by publisher Molleindustria. It is a beautiful take on the strange and powerful experience of continually waking up inside a dream.
In EDSD you take control of a typical “suit” character and given the agency to go about your self perpetuating daily life, or to perhaps refute this. The controls are simple, arrow key forward to move forward, arrow key back to move backwards and space-bar to interact. It is though these simple options that you shape your day. However at the end of every day you wake up where you started.
While EDSD succeeds visually, stylistically and in a narrative sense I think it’s greatest asset is the music of Jesse Stiles. The soundtrack is both unusual and intriguing, it’s use of repetition mirrors the games own repetitive emphasis while still managing to build a sense of momentum.
I don’t wish to spoil the game for you but I do encourage you to play the game to its completion. If you can find it.
Out of all the types of Jellyfish in the world, what is your favourite?
While I am not an advocate of violence or the Portuguese I would have to nominate the humble Man’o’war. For the Man’o’war is not in fact a single jellyfish but a colony of four separate blobby sea creatures working in unison to pretend to be a jellyfish. I like my sea life as convoluted as possible.
I can see you now, brimming with curiosity, almost overcome with anxiety. The anxiety of not knowing exactly what this blog is for.
"So" you say "What is this? And why isn’t the [x] button working?"
Well my friend let me put your mind at ease. This blog is a place, a wonderful place, for me to spew forth a great digital deluge of links, videos, crudely drawn art & frivolous self reflections. It’s a place where you, the user, can then drink up this great deluge of data and hopefully be better for it in the end. Or probably not.
Did I just analogize my blog with drinking vomit? Yes sir, yes I did.
So yeah, it’s pretty much all down hill from here, but in the good way I hope, like your riding your bike down that steep but not scary part of the hill and not crashing into shit and breaking your ankle.
