@duckstapler said: MAN I REALLY DIG ALL YOUR CHARACTERS… good to see taft again… also its too far back on my dash to find + comment but all of the bezrien monsters are little angels. very silent hill in a good way.

AWw, thanks so much man (how have you been?) I always neglect to notice how long the stretches of time are in between my postings of characters because I’m always workin’ with them even if I’m not posting art of them, like shit I haven’t submitted something of Filo since… NOVEMBER? What the heck.

And I made those monsters seven years ago when I was neck-deep in my middle school Silent Hill obsession HA HA~ I hope they’ve gotten their own identity through redesigns but I don’t mind them carrying those SH vibes at all, thanks!

I’ve been doing okay, I’m on skype a lot more often than I used to be so I should be easier to catch if you’re up for chatting sometime.

NOW THAT YOU MENTION IT I HAVEN’T SEEN A FILO IN A WHILE… but I totally get you on the “I haven’t drawn them but THEY’RE ALWAYS BEING WORKED ON IN MY HEART (and never-seen sketchbook)” dealio. That’s pretty much the space most of my characters are occupying at the moment. I used to feel weirdly guilty about not giving all my characters equal public attention but now that I’m into making games I’m more okay with it because YOU’LL GET YOUR TIME TO SHINE EVENTUALLY, ASSHOLE…

I think you’ve done a good job of giving them their own “feel” despite their Silent Hill inspiration. They definitely feel more like creatures than SH’s otherworldy horrors (not that they’re not also horrors but you get me right), like something you could envision stalking around creepy ass wilderness, y’know? And not a single one of them is a sexy nurse!

On Telltale Games’ Ableist Treatment of Sarah

lillycaul:

For those who aren’t a fan of this once-amazing series, The Walking Dead Game has always been lauded for its character diversity (with a wide range of different nationalities and racial backgrounds represented, well-written female characters and characters of all ages and body types featured prominently throughout the game).

In Season 2 we encountered Sarah, a Hispanic 15-year-old girl who is neurodivergent and has trouble coping with the horrors of the new world around her.

Now of course, being a female character and being disabled, she was immediately despised by the majority of the fandom. Slurs were tossed around, people frequently referred to her as “a liability”, and there were frequent posts made on Telltale’s forums, Facebook, Youtube, and elsewhere wishing her dead and hoping for a chance to kill her. This was nothing new - we had seen much of this before, with other female characters in the franchise. However, the ableism was rampant, and people would write essays about how she was “bringing the group down” and why her death would be a “good” thing for the other characters.

(spoilers) Her death came after the player was told several times by a pragmatic character that Sarah was dragging the group down, that she was a weakness, and that she “clearly” didn’t want to live (despite the fact that she screams and cries for help the entire time she’s being eaten). Instead of subverting that character’s pragmatism and showing that people with disabilities can still survive an apocalypse, she is killed even if the player chooses to save her (in a horrible manner, where she is partially crushed under a fallen balcony and then devoured alive by walkers as she screams for help). Her death served to further the already-prevalent fandom belief that disabled people are unnecessary weights holding survivors back, and makes total apocalyptic pragmatism look like a justified belief.

Of course, that made us (Sarah fans) angry and upset, especially considering many of us are ourselves neurodivergent (and several autistic teenage fans headcanoned her as being autistic) and the belief that characters like us are just liabilities is extremely hurtful. But that’s not what’s spurring me to make this post today.

COWBOY AU??????!!!!!!!!

"MOM" is a nasty no good outlaw!! But with SHERIFF FRANK in charge, the law won’t lift a finger to do anything about it. Sure they’ll maybe point a few guns and mutter some curses, but the pursuit of her was never real. Not until she starts hangin’ around that big ol’ STINKY JACK and doing joint crimes with criminals Sheriff Frank ain’t so fond of. Then Sheriff Frank decides that siblinghood don’t matter and that he means business now. Despite his earnest threats Sam hasn’t really picked up on the fact that He Really Means It Now.

I imagine she’s probably the one who springs Blubs from brothel life and helps her into the homosexual criminal lifestyle. Maybe she kills the guy in charge too. Or at least shoots him up.

MR GRANT is the town’s combination gravedigger/mortician. He prefers to present himself as the town’s SEAMSTER, but everyone knows what he really does, ya dig? (Hehe. Dig. GET IT) He came out here to run from something, only to get himself into more trouble in town. For the right price, he’ll dispose of any problem bodies you might have on your hands and he’ll never speak a word of it. He gets quite a lot of under the table business between the outlaws and the corrupt law enforcement. He probably buries a lot of fellas for Charlie. She gets a frequent customer discount. 

or at least follow my rpblog. no wait don’t do that i’d be embarrassed.

also don’t be disappointed but they’re not actually cowboys

I recently started developing a sequel to Earth Birth called God Blood. Do you have any advice on where to find resources (music, etc.) or anything else to do with making a fangame?

@shoesandhats1

HOT DAAAAAAAMN THAT’S RAD. If you finish that I’m gonna play the shit out of it.

For music, you’re gonna wanna find a variety of weird stuff so it’s hard to point in any one direction. That said, the electro-industrial genre might be a good place to start, and one of my many life regrets is that I rediscovered King Missile too late to include a King Missile song in Earth Birth. I wish I could give you some more useful advice on sniffing out music but I had a lot of help from Uveggetis on gathering the musics as he is something of a conisseur.

As for more general Space Funeral fangame creation, I found that following whims and taking inspiration from dreams you had but don’t quite understand gave favorable results. Too much planning creates a different vibe from the one you probably want; the parts of Earth Birth I am least happy with are the ones I spent too much time thinking about. That’s not to say you want to write completely random poopy garbage, but you’ll want to have your subconscious do a lot of the heavy lifting here to set the right tone. Let your mind go on tangents, pursue the thoughts you think that make you go “wait what” when you realize what you thought!

Oh, and be sure to top it off with a strangely comparatively coherent end theme if you want to keep in SF tradition.

SCIENCE BLESS YOUR JOURNEY, COMRADE
