What are you playing, June 2011
The game of the month has to be Minecraft. There is some serious addiction going on here.
My current project is building a huge museum of sciences, where people can go and see how things work:music boxes, light loops, the distance that a gold rail will carry you, etc.. That way if someone has a question, they can pop in and see a live example. I'm still creating the foundation for the building, my guess is it will be a few weeks before it's fully finished.
The next game I'm truly looking forward to is Dead Island, but that's a few months away.
Writing about Kari's experiences took some effort but it was fun. Because they were quick sketches, her writing was not given very much effort. The original comics were also done in the traditional form. This one in particular was sketched in regular line paper, hence the lines (click for larger size):
This actually looks decent but I restructured it in the format of a Korean web comic because those comics are made with the internet in mind. They are lean for pages like these and they are scroll- friendly. For the one about the dead wolf, some edits were made to shorten the story. The Original:
And then there are some that are just hard to explain:
The one above is based on a story that my uncle told us. He said that sometimes when he walks around, there are zombies waiting for him in the shade of a tree. Either the zombies are stuck there by bad programming or because they know that the second sunlight hits them they burn to death. Regardless, these zombies tend to stay there.
What my uncle does is not kill them directly. No, that would be too easy. What he does is he builds a fort around them, trapping the zombie within. The he gets his pick and chops away the tree branches, letting the sunlight in and burning the zombie to death with nowhere to run.
That was pretty sadistic, but in a funny sort of way.
