Illuminascii

Indie FPS influenced by Rogue generative levels and text-based graphics, put together by DDD Games:

As a fan of both roguelike and FPS style games, I am making a game that embodies not only the spirit of a roguelike, but also the aesthetics. The feel of a roguelike, in a modern engine. Illuminascii is the result of that idea - Taking the roguelike and merging it with an FPS: ASCII graphics, randomly generated enemies, random levels, randomly generated weapons, random cutscenes(!), The key goals are replayability and choice.

Freely available for Linux, Mac and Windows, you can download it for yourself here

Okay… That’s it… I think I’m going to set this as my alarm on my phone so I can feel like I’m waking up in heaven on a daily basis.

There’s just something about children’s choirs.

There’s just something about this song

The Machine To Be Another - Gender Swap

Art + tech experiment where particpants view themselves in the body of their opposite sex using a camera mounted Oculus Rift each - video embedded below [features nudity]:

Gender Swap is an experiment that uses themachinetobeanother.org/ system as a platform for embodiment experience (a neuroscience technique in which users can feell themselves like if they were in a different body). In order to create the brain ilusion we use the immersive Head Mounted Display Oculus Rift, and first-person cameras. To create this perception, both users have to syncronize their movements. If one does not correspond to the movement of the other, the embodiment experience does not work. It means that both users have to constantly agree on every movement they make. Through out this experiment, we aim to investigate issues like Gender Identity, Queer Theory, feminist technoscience, Intimacy and Mutual Respect.

Sometimes I still mentally think “OLD AS BALLS” when someone asks me how old something/someone is.
