LazyGuysStudio | 'Night Sky' Bundle

gaslightgallows:

If there are any gamers or spouses/parents/adoring aunts/friends of gamers on my f-list, this might be of interest. 

Kisareth, the indie game studio I do editing work for, has its first title out, and the first episode and DLC are available for download!

Amongst other places, it’s in Lazy Guy Studios’s current bundle of 15 indie games for $2.99. It’s called the Night Sky Bundle, and it’s available until May 4, 2014. 

Chronicles of a Dark Lord: Episode 1 Tides of Fate is the first in a series of old-school RPGs, following in the footsteps of Eastern console classics like Final Fantasy, Lufia, Phantasy Star and Dragon Quest.


There is an old-school game with anti-heroes, LGBT characters, polyamory, and lots of monologuing. I will have each and every one of you know that I worked my butt off to make the dialogue in this game not suck.

Check it out, buy it, signal boost, well-wishes, whichever. :)

Reblogging for the night crew.

Mascara, 1917

Whoa now this is what I call a history lesson

Oh man.
I can barely handle modern make-up with all the “easy applicator” shit.

A further history lesson: mascaro was a product for gentlemen:

The OED also references mascaro from works published in the late 1400s. In 1886, the Peck & Snyder Catalogue advertises, “Mascaro or Water Cosmetique… For darkening the eyebrow and moustaches without greasing them and making them prominent.” (x)

Apropos of nothing, that bit of trivia just fills me with joy.

nani was NINETEEN and such a fucking badass who was so protective of lilo and just ROLLED with aliens being a thing towards the end of the movie. #1 Disney relative of all time.

I have honestly been waiting AGES for the right gifset to express the wonderful perfection that is Nani. She is not only protective of Lilo, she respects the way Lilo’s imagination and quirkiness works.

Pudge the fish got a peanut butter sandwich every Thursday. Nani does not argue the logic of feeding him, only suggests an alternative sandwich when they are out of peanut butter. Lilo was allowed to take as many photos of whatever mundane or odd subjects as she wanted and Nani would get them developed. Nani recognized what were important habits for Lilo.

When Lilo asks for a pet lobster, Nani does not tell her that lobsters are not pets. She tells her, “We don’t have a lobster door, we have a dog door.” She makes sure the woman at the pound does not tell Lilo that “Stitch is not a real name”.

NANI SPENDS THE ENTIRE MOVIE MAKING SURE THAT LILO NEVER FEELS LIKE HER IDEAS ARE WRONG.

The only time we truly see Nani get angry with Lilo is when she is scared of Lilo being taken away. Nani spends the entire movie stressed out over taking care of her sister, trying to find a job, trying to make sure her sister has a friend, and yet she is always willing to put that extra effort, over and over again, to make sure that Lilo always believes that anything is possible.

This is a great moment because she probably *remembered* that Lilo said this once. And you know what? Shes not ending this day by letting her little sister think this is her fault. She’s not having an easy time trying to be a parent, but she knows none of this is her sisters fault, and shes not going to let her think it is. 

And half of her terror of losing Lilo isnt even just losing her family; its knowing that wherever Lilo goes, they won’t know how to do these things. They won’t understand her. 

What a good movie. 

Casual reminder that the reason Lilo obsessively feeds the fish is because her parents died in a rainstorm and she firmly believes Pudge controls the weather. If you pay attention to the feeding sequence you will notice that storm clouds recede and dissipate, a visual narrative that confirms this.

It’s not just a habit. It’s a very real part of Lilo’s healing process and Nani understands that.

Also if you pay attention to Nani’s room you’ll notice she had surfing posters and trophies. She was very much on her way to being a pro surfer but had to give it up to become the adult Lilo needed her to be.

And not ONCE does Nani show her sister any resentment. It’s worth it to keep her family together. This is a young woman who is willing to sacrifice all of her dreams and make incredibly grown up decisions.

What I am saying is Nani is the best disney princess of all time. Disney Queen even.
