So I had this long intelligent post about the nature of games and erotica and how the two are connected. It was such a long rambling post that two story ideas spun out of it and now I think if I pre-discuss it, the stories will lose their impact.
It’s kind of like writing a discussion about how giant animals are stand ins for a writer’s ego and then then writing King Kong.
So instead I am going to give you a link that will consume your entire weekend. Ready?
Play This Thing is a blog that reviews mostly free games you should play. Today’s post is about a game you shouldn’t play but trust me, you want to play the other 324 games listed here. They range from board games, to role-playing games to computer games. The computer games were my favorite part as they feature games made by independent studios who rather have fun with their game than a high blood polygon count. Their demos are free and if you like them, spring for the affordable prices and support some great game makers.
The games I am currently hooked on include FastCrawl, where a randomly generated party takes on a randomly generated dungeon and the game wraps up within half an hour. I swore I would never play another dungeon game again and I am hooked on this.
I also love Aquaria. This simple game is really beautiful. It may just be the most gorgeous and most soothing game I have played.
Iron Dukes is a wacky game about steampunk underwater treasure diving and pirate fighting. It is the kind of game a young Dr. Otto Von Madd would play.
