It’s been a loooong time since I posted some good reading.
- 5 Things I Learned as the Internet’s Most Hated Person | Cracked.com
- "I watched every avenue of social media suddenly blow up with messages of abject hatred from thousands of strangers. For the first five days, I couldn't sleep. Every time I would start to doze off, I'd be shocked awake from half-asleep nightmares about everyone I love buying into the mob's bullshit and abandoning me. The ceaseless barrage of random people sending you disgusting shit is initially impossible to drown out — it was constant, loud, and it became my life."

It’s a lot like the “boys will be boys” mentality that helps to keep rape culture thriving, but it’s also different, because boys are expected to be human.

I promise, not every one of my blog posts from now on is going to be about Future Proof, but we’ve released a small companion game/prelude/demo to Ossuary!
It’s weird. It’s fun. It’s… salty.
Go play “The Hodge-Podge Transformer” while you wait for me to post some Iceland photos.
…Yeah, I said it. What, then? You’ve already waited 4 months; what’s one more day?
Unforgivably, I’m a day late, but Future Proof Games‘ Ossuary has been released!
In case you haven’t visited the page or seen the trailer:
The last thing you remember is receiving an unsatisfying answer. A plunge through the fundamental chaos takes you to a place of bones. Great power can be found within the Ossuary, but those who are not lying to themselves are lying to you.
Ossuary is available as a downloadable title for Windows and is DRM-free. Pick up a copy and enjoy!
(Oh, and Mac will be supported once Adobe releases Mavericks support for desktop Flash Player and AIR.)
How about tomorrow, November 27th?
Want to keep up with Ossuary and Future Proof Games?
Ossuary will cost 5 USD, with the option to pay more.
“Wait!” you say. “A new game from Gregory Avery-Weir?! And this Future Proof thing? I’ve been ignoring all your other posts about it?! Waaat?”
Go watch the trailer.
The release date will be announced very soon. (Frustrating, I know, but…)
The game itself will also be released rather soon.
Get ready to fall into the place of bones.
