re- #introduction since it's been awhile!
i'm vivaizix, or sarah. 🍄 i'm a 27 year old art student looking to study game design / new media. i make videogames, sculptures, illustrations (ink, paint, digital), comics, and i write.
mixed media is my jam. i talk a lot about my personal progress, and concepts in art and games.
you can check out my videogames on itchio: https://vivaizix.itch.io or http://vivaizix.tumblr.com/tagged/vivgames
:/ our power meter was ripped out of our wall. one of the wires is draped across the driveway into a tree - it could have been the wind but like, right off the wall?? there were no big branches around as if something fell on a wire hard enough to pull it out..
extremely mixed reaction on cyberpunk 2077... the world is cool looking, but i'm so tired of gritty man with gun with ambiguous backstory
as someone who doesn't play elder scrolls, that trailer is hilarious. it's a mountain.
as someone busting my ass to make it out here: Lord grant me that level of iconicism
i was playing overwatch as Winston and got potg, and someone said i did good!

@vivaizix is it because films were/are known (regardless of personal immersion) as being the director's vision, or the viewer's story, so it is safer to put a woman through hell, when it could be easier for people/men to objectify her?
it is especially hard for horror games to properly have a believable female protagonist when they often suffer from trying to make the main character to 'relatable to everyone' (ie, the developers idea of everyone, a white dude)
it suddenly intrigued me that 'the final girl' theme hasn't translated from horror films to horror games.

the game i'm most proud of -
“a long time alone” is a game about watching an eternity pass, about progression and entropy, and states of mind.

watercolors from 8 years ago. im glad i learned to love my work, back then i wasn't so fond of these, now i think they're lovely
i used to play basically pictionary on a site called isketch, which is still up but hasn't worked for me in years
i tried a new similar one called doodle or die, some of it can be shitty but a lot of it's neat, it's like a game of telephone but with describing drawings + drawing them
this one killed me
