Excited to share some of the work I've been doing for Metal Weave Games this past year for their Baby Bestiary Calendar!

Here are the owlbear cubs, painted in coffee! I'll have prints of them with gold foil trim at Ohayocon this weekend!

The Last of Us seems like a pretty faithful adaptation of the original game but I think it was cowardly to leave out the scene where joel gets killed 18 times in the first clicker room and considers getting a refund

“In #Finland, the number of homeless people has fallen sharply. Those affected receive a small apartment and counselling with no preconditions. 4 out of 5 people affected make their way back into a stable life. And all this is CHEAPER than accepting homelessness.”

I feel like every time I play a game with a morality system I do the whole thing as a perfect angel making every possible 'good' sacrifice and then make one choice the game labels dubious and the ending is like "for some you're a savior, for some a devil, a brutal monster and a complex man"
