The pleasure corporation rewards its most loyal employees, those who would betray morals, friends, and family as well as their own world for the company. Rewards them with a stipend of hour tokens for the sensory stimulation center on floor -84.
Just keep the company safe and informed and you will continue to receive time.
Okay here was a pen sketch I did the other day. Think of it as a realm of chaos, what the gibbering mouths and flopping tentacle beings do when they aren’t driving investigators mad and batshed crazy.
Last post for this morning of back catalog sketches…
I can’t find the original for this one … Sorry!
Again, critique for this weird week will be on Sunday!
MOAR OF THE BACK SKETCHES!
Again, let’s talk about it on Sunday, but here is the original image.
A Game about Doorways
Before you open the door, close your eyes and imagine what is behind it. Reach out and open the door, eyes still shut, feel possibility at your fingertips.Take a step forward eyes still closed.

Breathe.Now open your eyes. You have taken a
Now open your eyes. You have taken a breath in the land of imagination and have visited that world.
Even if it was only for a short while, you were there. Keep a short journal. Even a single piece of paper will suffice. Write down that moment in a sentence or two, do this until the page is full, both sides.

Ahhhhhh! Another back post! There are like 4ish more I think?

I will do the critique for this image on Sundays roundup post! The original image can be found here.
This game requires two pennies
I started a community on the plus some months ago called “Orbit Above’s Guild of Creative Invention” and have started posting more game design excercises or brainjumps on there. One of them was about a short game I came up with on that day called “this game requires two pennies”.
The original post was a quick exercise I came up with (I think I did at least? I haven’t seen it elsewhere so…?).
“Hack this Scribble; someone posts a short game. Each person can hack it by adding a rule (big addon, but doesn’t edit previous text), changing a term (changes all of x word to y), or changing a paragraph (rewrite or modify a paragraph). These can be done to the main post, or in a comment calling back to someone else’s comment.
If I find a better way of doing this, I’ll let you know. So lets call this an experiment.
Today is: this game requires two pennies”
Some of my favorite responses…
Caitlynn Belle: “change penny / pennies to turtles.”
Josh T. Jordan: “Every time you play, add one more penny. Before making your choice, set one penny to heads and one to tails. Flip the rest to determine whether they are heads or tail.”
Josh T. Jordan (again): “Replace the word “moment” with “person.””
I haven’t been posting those darn sketch-a-days, so I am a bit behind. Will be catching up though! In which case, I will be posting a bunch today, one with the regular content and the other with some writing I guess (by some writing I don’t mean that their will be 16 shout outs today, but the regular number and then a bunch of back images with some creative writing alongside it that is unrelated to the image but just something I came up with in this moment).

Only in Secrets
“If we spoke only in secrets
Would I hear your spoken words?
Can you understand a completely unrelatable tragedy?
Would I understand an unrelatable and impossible to reference response?
Can words be foul enough to tell all but leave us without words to explain what is said?
We go back and forth in unrecognizable rhetoric and extreme speeches.
About things which are disastrous and disproportionate but all the while rational,
but how can we know?
How can we know anything other than confusion when we speak the loudest words?
What phrase could I give back that would reveal as well as grant understanding?
When we talk in secrets alone, no one can or will understand over the deafening and empty revelations.”
This came about yesterday, something about confusion when you only talk in unrelatable speech, which is in itself a secret. But what if the purpose is to enlighten someone or reveal a secret that is itself unrelatable? No language barrier, it is the words itself which are lost upon a person, the content. And when you ask for what is not understood and are just met with more of the same in response, how do elaborate or give examples when both people are pushing?
