How RuneScape is helping Venezuelans survive

quote [ ?The first thing I did was to subscribe to r/slavelabour. I did several gigs and I made my first $100 in a month after subscribing. This helped us a lot as my parents were only making like $10/month each but after that lucky month, things didn?t go well,? he writes. ]

The title makes it sound as it's a good thing, but this is obviously rather gloomy. An interesting part is how the erosion of Venezuelan infrastructure directly affected the in-game economy of this MMORPG.

Thread by @dosnostalgic: Have you ever played "Jim Power: The Lost Dimension"?

quote [ And it has UNCOMFORTABLE levels of parallax scrolling. Why is that? ]

Found this one unplayable, but at least it enriches my backlog with another great story.

Antidepressants or Tolkien character?

A bit goofy on the execution ? the original Twitter thread is still funnier.

Alasdair Beckett-King’s Interactive Murder Mystery WHODIDIT

The Great Palermo — We Are Mesli

quote [ Gaetano!
Che c', mamma?
Gaetano, vammi a prendere le uova al mercato!
Oh... Ogni giorno la stessa storia! ]

Mouth-watering Sicilian street food depicted in beautiful illustrations ? cobbled together in a dating sim engine.

quote [ An initiative of indie label Fellow Traveller, it aims to create a platform to showcase and celebrate interesting and innovative narrative games, replicating as many of the aspects and benefits of the physical convention experience as possible within a digital format. ]

This looks interesting if you have some time to spare (I don't):

They have a talk with ? among others ? Steve Meretzky, Brian Moriarty and Brenda Romero at 12 PM PST ?that's in an hour? But looks like all recordings will loop for the upcoming 24h.

You need to run the player on the Steam website though ? this is some cross marketing thing, it seems.
