we as a culture really intensely need to get over this idea that having positive feelings about yourself is a negative character trait
Trans Rights Europe Map, May 2013
earlier this year 2 boys got expelled from my school for going on a teachers email and sending another teacher an email that says “you’re a disgusting little man” and i laugh about it all the time because imagine opening an email from your coworker and thinking it’s important and then it says that
“A dream is a wish your heart makes,
When you’re fast asleep,
In dreams you lose your heartaches,
Whatever you wish for, you keep…”
- This crossover has been rattling around in my head for some time, and wanted to get back into doing more finished paintings, so I thought why not start with this?
one time in an argument my dad called me a grumpy old man who wants the kids to get off his lawn and i got really upset but it’s funny to me now because that is a perfect description of me
No One Has To Die: Talking will spoil it from the start. Amazing concept and brilliant ending. Takes about 20 minutes to complete, browser game.
Off: You’ve probably already seen bits all over tumblr from this (as well as bits, if you know what I mean ;]); French game that starts with a strange man “purifying” ghosts from a world with weird rules and elements; quickly becomes a twisted, confusing ride. At least worth a play, and you should probably check out an LP afterwards (I sure did). Takes a few hours.
The Grey Rainbow: Don’t be thrown by the art - this game may start off in a fairly usual RPG manner, but the story, though short, will draw you in and may even make you cry. Make sure to check all flavor text. Takes about an hour.
The Color Tuesday RPG (TCT): Starts off with kids randomly chosen to save the world/town/whatever, like many RPGs, but actually takes a look at the burden placed on the protagonists. Interesting if sometimes frustrating combat system, a compelling story, and an almost laughable but actually rather tragic spin on the weird rules of many RPG worlds. Beautiful in every sense and left me wanting more. Takes a few hours - LOTS OF FLASHING, epileptics take care! Make sure to play with the sound on.
Bastion: If you haven’t played this yet, I’m already judging you. But seriously, it’s an incredibly beautiful and heart-wrenching game with wonderful sound, graphics, and story. Most definitely play with the sound on, and buy the damn soundtrack. The only non-free game on this list, but well worth it. Takes a few hours, very streamlined story.
EDIT: Feel free to add your own!
Coma: To be honest I’m not 100% sure it fits with the rest of the list as it’s been ages since I played it, but it’s a beautiful game with an amazing atmosphere and everyone should play it at least once. Won’t take very long at all!
Loved: A really short game, but it has a lot of replay value in my opinion.
I love psychological games, especially the ones that spur discussions due to their ambiguous nature and the ones with gameplay that reflects the game’s message. Looking up other people’s interpretations to those games is always the most rewarding thing.
Don’t Look Back: A short browser platformer that’s a modern interpretation of the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Depending on interpretation, the ending can be regarded as either positive or negative, just as many other games on this list.
Braid: Just like Bastion, it isn’t free, and while I haven’t been able to finish it yet, it most certainly meets the criteria mentioned above.
