Designed this banner for the next sermon series my church is going through. Played around with Scuba flag colors before landing on this more Finding Dory-like design. As always, fonts are fun!
The boy was whirling around a pair of foam green nunchucks.
I looked at him, “You’re doing it wrong.”
“What do you mean?”
“You need training. Let’s check out some Youtube videos so that you can see how awesome you can be.”
A few videos in, I kept waiting for Wyatt to peg himself as he mimicked the motions on screen.
Five videos in, I hear a sudden yelp as Wyatt accidentally hit himself in the face. His left eye to be specific.
I started laughing. Hard.
He didn’t like that.
I laughed harder.
I first experienced the power of Twine during the opening of Campo Santo’s Firewatch. The stirring combination of text and sound reduced me to tears in moments. Who knew a videogame could capture the weaponized emotional power of Pixar’s UP?
Nelson’s latest game is titled Mazurka – A Ghost in Italy. This interactive work of fiction is an invitation into the surreal. A late night experience in a place both foreign and familiar.
Mazurka – A Ghost in Italy demonstrates the power of the Twine platform. Allowing the player/reader to transcend the text and share a brief moment with a friend. I was surprised at how personal the game is; how quickly I was sucked in.
I want to invite you to take the journey too. You can do so here.
“It’s indicative of God’s grace that he gave permission before restriction. He said, “You can eat from every tree except one.” How many trees were there? Hundreds? Thousands? Adam and Eve could eat from all of them except one; the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Think about that. The odds were stacked in their favor. God wasn’t trying to trap them. He didn’t give them impossible commands and then laugh when they failed. He made it as simple and straightforward as possible. He set them up for success. He gave them the world, but he gave them limits too.” – How’s Your Soul? (Judah Smith)
“Feelings are the language of the day. And telling someone that what they feel might be incorrect is a cardinal sin in our society.” – How’s Your Soul? (Judah Smith)
