Early in the game I ran into this strange little girl:
One thing that struck me is how “Silent Hill” this girl is. Despite being a little girl, she’s very spooky and strange. She seems to be some sort of ghost. (I’m sure her nature will become clear as the game proceeds.) She’s powerful. Her dark hair hides her face. Your character speaks to her, and she speaks back, but the conversation is pretty one-way; you can’t get her to respond to you. She’s also very pale and she seems to be “mildewing” on the bottom. This is all stuff right out of the Silent Hill playbook.
Ragnar Tornquist mentions the Silent Hill games on his blog, and it’s pretty clear he must have really gotten into the game at some point. I think it’s cool to see how that influenced Dreamfall.
Why Google sucks, and what made me switch to crowdfunding for this site.
Trusting the System
How do you know the rules of the game are what the game claims? More importantly, how do the DEVELOPERS know?
Project Button Masher
I teach myself music composition by imitating the style of various videogame soundtracks. How did it turn out? Listen for yourself.
A Star is Born
Remember the superhero MMO from 2009? Neither does anyone else. It was dumb. So dumb I was compelled to write this.
Bad and Wrong Music Lessons
A music lesson for people who know nothing about music, from someone who barely knows anything about music.
