The artist was puzzling about how Yamato and Kakashi could possibly be so light at their heights and builds, pointing out that Yamato’s listed height and weight is not far off from skinny actress Fan Bingbing. Watch, for example, the Olympic Taekwondo matches for the 58kg category and there’s no way that Yamato could be that light, in my opinion.

No matter what weight he is, everyone can agree that Yamato lets Kakashi lead him around by his wooden nose…


Haha! I died again!

Lynne, that’s not something to joke about…

While Lynne takes a crack at jokes on the side, what we have in store for you is no laughing matter! Welcome to Rewind - A Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective fan zine!!

Artist applications are currently open! Applications will be open from now, February 10, 10:00 PM EST, to February 19, 10:00 PM EST. We are looking to accept around 20-25 artists for this zine. We are looking for artists who are skilled in the following: portraying atmosphere, facial expressions and body language, character interaction, and have a unique and dynamic style. Imitations of the Ghost Trick art style are not allowed. !!!!!Please read the FAQ before you apply!!!!!

You MUST have played Ghost Trick in full before applying. It is a fairly short game (10-20 hours). The reasoning for this is because the twist at the very end completely changes your view of the entire game! Of course we can’t demand for proof that you played it, but we encourage you to finish the game before you apply.

The zine is hosted by alice and heidi, two artists who love mystery puzzle games. If you have any questions, please direct them to the Ghost Trick zine related twitter (DM/ or via mention) or tumblr (tumblr asks are preferred). We will be publicizing our replies in case anyone has the same questions. If you do not want your question to be public, please indicate so.

The zine aims to be done production by June 19, to celebrate Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective’s seven year anniversary.

Thank you kindly for reading, and good luck!!

Halfway Home

Everyone, I am very glad to say I’m halfway through my new script. And it is analytical, educational, focused, and shows examples of points being made. It is entirely on spooky and how to achieve spooky and why spooky works.

And the other half is all about the kind of ‘hidden meanings & symbols’ fun I bring to things like Wham City Comedy work.

You’re gonna get a single video that’s half breakdown of fear and its mechanics, and half artistic interpretation and symbol puzzle-cracking. All on the same topic.

I am so, so happy to be back in business. This is the best possible topic and approach to come back with and really sets the tone for some things I want to achieve this year.
