Now Playing Tracks

I just listened to The September Monologues

And I had to lie down and cry for a little bit because of the way they made me feel.

I’ve been listening to Night Vale with an open mind all these years, and it’s been YEARS, but I’ve never identified with another character as much as I do Steve. Even though I love these characters to bits. And it’s hit me like a cinder block to the head.

I can’t explain exactly what made me cry about this episode, only that it was more than Steve’s monologue. I had a minor panic attack after the first monologue so I was expecting intense things.

But there was something about the way Steve understood everything except why no one else wanted to know things that really got to me. It’s something I see in myself.

I have to go listen to it again to explain this properly.

Pumpkin Online Aims to Include Everyone, Everywhere | Indie Game Magazine




Okay, Tumblr, let’s make this go viral. You all know that representation in the media is desperately needed, and this game is delivering what many of the big-name games haven’t. Pumpkin Online is made by a development team headed by an African-American woman and they’re aiming to make this game as inclusive and friendly as possible. This is a farming/romance sim mixed up with an adventure MMORPG and made incredibly diverse.

You want to play a non-binary character? You got it! You want a range of races in your NPC neighbors? Done! Clothing choices and body features not restricted by gender? It’s in there! Relationships in no way affected by gender or lack of gender? Yes, that too!

Let’s get this thing going viral and help promote the Kickstarter (link in the article) so that everyone gets the chance to play the character they want to play. Reblog buttons, do your thing!
