Pinned toot

Left social media as a productivity experiment, and really dug the results. So instead of hanging around Masto, I'll just forward my art (and ebook release posts) from PixelvaniaStudios.com.

It’d be a quick death—the machines never stopped in time—and a better one than the injection in store for me when I failed my final set of tests.

At least this way I get to choose.

My palm had just kissed the glass when my father grabbed me from behind.

I twisted, but he was too strong. He hauled me, his only son, through the water, back to where my mother screamed and people avoided looking at us. My escape had failed.

I’d been paying for that day’s cowardice ever since.

Book out now.

I once tried to run into the sea to drown myself, but the water never rose higher than my skinny fourteen-year-old calves.

It didn’t take long before I found the end of the sea, a glass wall at the very edge of the tower. Jets pumped recirculated water through slots aimed at my ankles. I stared through the glass at the steel city before me. If climbed over, I could jump, and if I jumped, I’d fall. I’d close my eyes and pretend I was flying—at least, until the first autokinet smashed into me.

Finally reading Emily Wilson's translation of The Odyssey right now and it is just STAGGERINGLY compelling. Direct without losing the beauty of the language. I'm flying through it.

For those of you curious about my writing projects, I just wrote a blog post about what I'm up to and future plans. Ends with a review of RED THUNDER and EERIE, INDIANA and a quick recipe. c:

$100 CAD per month is nothing to support a community of thousands of artists, but it is a lot for one person to afford. And that's where we have to ask all of you for help!

As stated in a pinned toot on my profile, we have two places where you can donate to •ART:

:patreon: patreon.com/MastoArt
:liberapay: liberapay.com/masto-art

Many of you are already donating, and you have our gratitude! The rest of you, if you have the means, it would mean the world to us and our artists. :bear_hugs:

Just finished a session of SECRETS OF RAETIKON and I haven't had this much fun nosing around a 2D world for secrets and false walls since DONKEY KONG COUNTRY.
And controlswise I think they took a page from ECCO THE DOLPHIN...so fluid. And you have a (sort of) birby echolocation. I went in expecting a voxel first-person 3D birdflight sim, got something really different and special instead! Highly recommended!
