Started again working on the game that I've been trying to make for years. Scrapped the whole concept of setting it in a city - too complex and inorganic and so it sent scope through the window. Setting it in a forest/nature setting is cliche but reduces scope a whole lot. I'm hoping that with some good worldbuilding it will still feel unique and different though. Progress is going to be slow and I'm kind of scared to even post this! But stay tuned for more here if anyone is interested.
@the_geometrist Oh man this is bad. Any time I read something like this it comes off as very directed at millenials, like "Oh you snowflakes want to livestream your Coachellas but you don't want to live in a panopticon? Typical."
Marking this as sensitive for non-pos-vibes. Articles like this piss me off so much. I get he's trying to say that digital surveillance has happened slowly over time as social media presence has increased but... don't pretend like people wanting to share cat photos with their friends online has anything to do with dystopian face-recognition cameras in cities or tracking cookies following people all over the internet to better serve them ads. Don't victim blame people.
I like art and play too many video games.
