This past month I have fallen in love with a little game called Cosmic Star Heroine. It’s a Kickstarter by Zeboyd Games, featuring 16-bit graphics and a conspiracy story set on another planet. Because of the retro art style and turn-based combat, I would recommend it specifically to gamers who enjoy those things. It’s not for everybody. But it feels made for me, and since it’s not a AAA title getting tons of attention, I want to make sure to share it with you all. Here are a few reasons I’m loving it so much.
Happy Friday, everybody! Today I’d like to share a simple post about what’s on my fantasy and sci-fi agenda right now, in terms of entertainment. =)
When I was in middle school, I visited a tiny library in a very tiny town near where I lived with the intention of finding a new book to read. I visited a lot of libraries growing up. As an avid reader, I was always looking for some new book to devour, but I didn’t have a lot of recommendations other than whatever my teachers had me reading at school.
So on this occasion, I chose a book based on a few important factors: a.) how big it was, b.) how it felt when I picked it up, and c.) how it smelled. I liked long novels in crinkly covers that smelled like old musty parchment paper. I was a weird kid like that, though I have faith the rest of you who were also nerdy children can relate!
Major spoilers for Passengers in this post! If you plan to see it, don’t read this yet!
Yesterday I saw the movie Passengers. It looked like a popcorn sci-fi flick about two people (Chris Pratt’s Jim and Jennifer Lawrence’s Aurora) who awake from hibernation sleep on a 120-year ride to a new planet. The trouble is that they wake up about 90 years too early and can’t get back to sleep. But the movie ended up being much more thought-provoking than just that.
