Can’t watch Doctor Who till tomorrow.
I had it down to record but i just came down to find out my brother was recording a f*cking football match… So i’ve missed the first 15 minutes.
Player 2 is a game about conflict and healing by Lydia Neon.
Why Try It: Example of a game that centers “exoludic” player experience (that is, interactions which take place outside of the game’s programmed rules structure); can be a difficult but helpful experience for the player in voicing feelings around unresolved interpersonal conflict.
Time: Ten minutes.
How to Play: Use the mouse to click links and the keyboard to enter information into the text fields. At any time, you can click the “esc” link at the bottom of the screen to stop playing if you need to.
More Info: Player 2 was made for the “Your Enemies Don’t Have To Die For You To Win” #CreativeConflictJam, an event where participants created games that centered alternative modes of conflict resolution. It was created in Twine, a free tool for creating hypertexts, interactive stories, and text-based games.
Reblogging the shit out of this. Seriously.
This is really, really good. This is like how people tell you to write a letter when you’re angry about something/someone and then don’t mail it, except way, way better. Really feels like an actual dialog.
I. needed. this.
when something simple like this makes you break down and cry, well… this is more cathartic than any unsent letter i’ve ever written.
<3 you all. I’m really happy and overwhelmed that it’s helping people.
Can we just talk about this for a minute? Regina and Emma were connected from the moment Regina adopted Henry, and for the next 11 years that she raised him. Henry connects these two women in a more important way than any experience Emma had with Hook or Neal ever could. When Emma gave Henry up, he took a piece of her heart with him. I mean just look at her face. And when Regina adopted Henry, she was looking to fill a void in her own heart. That piece of Emma’s heart literally filled Regina’s own missing piece.
crap this is so beautiful
