Pinned toot

Oh apparently we’re doing mastodon again? Okay! Hi! I’m Clarity (they/she). I’m a tabletop rpg design, a classically-trained composer, a programmer, trans, queer, and a socialist. I like magical realism, art that leaves you aching & wistful, girls kissing, mutual solidarity, and swords.

You can find my most recent game here! strangerelics.itch.io/queen-ki Imagine a hidden identity game like werewolf, except an rpg where winning isn’t always the goal and with more kissing.

PAY-TO-EMOTE

I reject the idea that charging $ for cosmetics is 👌👌👌 while 'pay-to-win' games are not.

This focus treats expressive players as second-class citizens. This long-lasting movement is imo a huge middle finger to players who like to have cool skins, a bunch of emotes, unique voice clips, whatever, and it's been violently harmful to the social nature of games.

Sure, microtransactions are often surrounded by manipulative design choices. But you can't just say NO PAY 2 WIN and be done.

I just picked up a Korg Minilogue and am really enjoying messing with it. Here is me laying down a nice loop w/ a Ditto pedal, then noodling over it for a bit. youtu.be/4ecCjmlg0OE

I finished reading Miéville's "The Scar" yesterday. There was a lot I liked about it: so much color, and a few good bits of truly wondrous fantasy, and a narrative that refuses to be reductive in the way fantasy often is.

In the end, though, I found myself uneasy. It's a very lonely story, maybe even nihilistically so. There are nearly no genuine and loving relationships shown on the page at all, and a lot of dishonesty and coldness. I'm not really sure what to take away from that.
