#LD30 is nearing it’s end! THere’s STILL TIME! YOU CAN DO IT
When i was a kid in the 90s (the time which i remember the best), it felt like every year and every month thee was something new and amazing in the horizon, as well as things that were being released. New game consoles, new ways of enjoying media, new communication networks, phones, WAP, GPRS, IRC, ICQ, Chatting, Messenger, Voice communication via internet! Everything was amazing!
Now, however, it feels as though we’re not really thinking of anything new or exciting. Rather, we’re thinking of new ways to use the things that we created in the past. Sure, there’s some small pockets of innovation being seen in game consoles, but it feels like all the things that are being released aren’t really new; they’re just revisions and improvements over the previous new thing that was released.
Sure, there’s also the fact that making games has become hugely democratized, with the abundance of easy to use tools. Hell, people with little experience can now even make 3D games with Unity and own 3D shorts with Blender! And that’s still amazing!
But it still feels like there’s nothing super special or anything that catches our imagination anymore. Now it’s all about selling us things and making sure that we buy them.
Why doesn’t anything make me feel excited anymore?
Online manga reader for scanlations released by Dynasty Scans and other Yuri groups.
SO Yeah: This is a comic that tells a story of a married lesbian couple. he worldbuilding is limited to like: “A country far away from japan”, and like, people have cat ears.
It’s still interesting for 2 reasons:
1. It focuses on the anxieties of a newlywed wife
2. There’s no mention of sex or even sexualized imagery.
I feel like these kind of comics would also be interesting if done from a western perspective. To see stuff like this reminds me of the possibilties that comics are able to do.
It’s kinda long, but please read it if you want to!
