Hopefully this gif comes out the way I wanted to. I always liked gifs that were cyclical but you can’t tell where it begins or ends. I feel that is one of the better uses of the gif format, but that is just my opinion.

This was such a jarring moment of the fight scene for me that it was what completely takes me out of the moment every time and makes me laugh. It looks like two dudes just swinging glowing sticks at a party, so I wanted to make it look like it would go on forever with the loop. So I hope it makes you chuckle a bit.

Also, quick update, I am currently working, slowly, on an interactive written story for Twine that I will eventually adapt to an interactive video on YouTube, hopefully. With luck, spring break will give me some time to work on that and I won’t waste it procrastinating. Fingers crossed. Keep it Reel!

A “Totally Original” Undertale Review

So, for those of you who don’t know, Undertale is a video game on Steam developed and made by  one person, Toby Fox. It is the story of your character falling into an underground world where monsters have been trapped for a very long time. Your goal: make it to the barrier and escape.

Now, it is certainly nothing new to say that this is a great game. The characters are fully fleshed out and quirky, the gameplay is crisp and a fun mix of turn-based rpg and bullet hell mechanics, the story is engaging, and its world imaginative. Obvious 9 out of 10 or even 10 out of 10.

However, I would like to add my thoughts as to why players such as myself can grow so attached to the game and why, despite loving the game, some of us can never bring ourselves to play it on our own computers again.

Spoilers ahead.

First DNN Post

Hey everyone. Like I warned you, this blog will temporarily be used for my class on Digital Network Narratives. This is just the first post for that class so the professor can find my blog and add it to the class mother blog. Expect a five photo story soon.

Keep it Reel!

Is this just fantasy? Nope, sci-fi can be found here too.
