On Life and Love

Where am I?

So… I’m writing again, and partaking in a little summer writing project (coined “Hot Blog Summer”) with my partner Dr. Lucy. Good gravy, folks, the amount of plugin clean-up I had to do to get this and my next post out is wild. 😅 While I’m editing my first meaty post, here’s how you can find me these days:


I’m over at irrsinn.life/@melissa, posting about Beat Saber, other games I’m playing, a bit of social justice stuff, and tech. Come chat with me there. I really don’t spend much time on Twitter these days aside from Future Proof Games work and folks I get push notifications for.

Jackie, a longer-haired calico cat, is perched on a short cat tree, looking alertly at the photographer.
My beloved Jackie passed away this year on April 15. She was 14.5 years old, and she was one of my constant companions since she was 8 weeks old.

Future Proof Games

Yup, I’m still doing that whole game making thing with Gregory. 😁 All our stuff is over at futureproofgames.com, including all our games, our Twitch stream schedule,  our podcast, and our newsletter. You can also find us on Twitter.

Here’s some cool shit we’ve made that you should play:

  • Exploit: Zero Day, a living puzzle game in which you’re a hacktivist fighting government and corporate overreach. The first season of story + the ability to make and share puzzles of your own is free.
  • Rosette Diceless and its Companion, a table-top roleplaying system that focuses on collaborative storytelling and consent-based conflict resolution.
  • (I Fell in Love With) The Majesty of Colors” Remastered, an updated version of the game with remastered audio, interactivity, and effects. It’s playable on Windows, Linux, Android, and iOS.
Greg, a short-haired brown, black, and white tabby, is sleeping on a cat tree.
Greg-the-cat, here 14.5 years old, is still going pretty strong and remains an adorable sleeper.


I stream sometimes. Definitely monthly for Future Proof, and sometimes between/around that. I’m usually playing cool indie stuff. Archives live over on irrsinn.video.

Granny Square Colors

Why yes, GSC is still running. It doesn’t get nearly the amount of attention from me that it deserves, but I do updates every so often and plenty of folks still use it.

…That might be everywhere useful. I’m over on reddit, but unless you want to read about me being confused by tech stuff, that’s not too interesting.
