Comics & Games, it’s Friday!
So, I just found out about Wayward Manor – a PC/Mac and mobile game coming in the fall, designed by no-one less than Neil Gaiman. He describes it as an idea inspired by films like Arsenic & Old Lace that he’d been kicking around for a while, and begged for an interactive medium. They’re seeking Kickstarter-style funding (reward tiers) without the intermediary because, when you’re Neil Gaiman, you can do that.
Here’s an incredibly cool graphic that uses a lot of (mostly marginalized, but that supports the point) female DC characters to make a statement about intersectional feminism. It even ends with the brilliant “My feminism will be intersectional or it will be bullshit” quote from Flavia Dzodan).
I’ve eagerly been anticipating Mitu Khandaker’s Redshirt (link is to new dev log, go watch), which, if you didn’t know, is a game about socializing online whilst living on a starship, while you await (or try to postpone) the inevitable away mission that will make you into this Guy. Cliff Harris’ company, Positech, is publishing Redshirt, and the current Humble Weekly Sale will get you Positech’s greatest hits for however much change you’re willing to throw in, including Kudos 2, the closest thing out there to what Redshirt will be.
