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.

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!

Well Here We Are Again

I am so sorry everyone. I keep saying I’ll do more and then that doesn’t happen. Fall semester was way more intense then I thought it’d be and I forgot about the blog during the break and Janterm. I’m sure any of you guys who have been or are in college understand.

Anyway, I will be posting some more things this semester because I’ll get to use my blog for my Digital Networked Narrative assignments. So expect to  see a bunch of weird posts of me experimenting with various forms of digital storytelling. Hopefully I’ll also be able to post some reviews of books or movies along the way.

Thank you all for continuing to follow me and remember to Keep it Reel!

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