Spent the weekend with a friend south of Boston. Played a pen and paper game that he created that we may turn into a computer game. The game has to do with cities. I think driving through Boston and playing that game inspired the following drawing this evening. I had fun drawing the whole thing with white on black for a change.
Here is a drawing I made of the shack I used to live in. It was a cozy little cabin on a quiet lake that I helped to renovate in the summer of 2008. It was only 400 square feet with no running water or bathroom. That’s right, I had an outhouse. In this drawing the outhouse is obscured by the shack, but it is back there have no fear!
I like robots. I’d like to believe that once they rule us they will do so with grace and fairness. Sometimes late at night I’m not so sure.
You are the Hero trying to reach the head of a runaway train to get to the locomotive. You start at the caboose and work your way along fighting off the bad guys who have taken the train over. You have to be careful not to fall off the train cars or get swept off the left side of the screen with a disconnecting train car. Also, don’t get shot! You can get hit 3 times before you die.
Hey there! Welcome to the beginning. I’m not sure if I know you but I guess since this is the internet I should probably not assume anything. My name is Dave and this is my website. You may also know me as HybridMind if you are coming from the Ludum Dare, Gosu, or TIGSource communities. My primary interests are creating games, art, and music. I am also a big fan of creative living. I will be writing and sharing works primarily about those topics here on this website.
In the eight years I have owned this domain I have done very little with it. In fact, that is a complete understatement. I think until this shiny new year of 2009 rolled around it largely sat with the phrase, “Surely you are mistaken:” It has had that phrase since 2000 when I first registered this domain. That was long ago. It sat so long in fact that I completely forgot why I had written that in the first place. Anyway, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is that I have finally decided to use this website to share my adventures, creations, and thoughts with the world at large. I feel I am prepared to gaze into the abyss. Will it also gaze into me? *dramatic pause*
