I had a dream last night that I was playing this post-apocalyptic game where all of the people except you and your crew were turned into horrifying monsters
The way the game worked was it would open to you and your Cool Group of Angsty Survivors and their base is taken over by the monsters. So the whole point of the game is to survive long enough to get to another safe place.
You have four people in a team and you all just. Line up side to side and go in a straight line. You have one gun that does a set amount of damage (other weapons are available instead of a gun and some are pink and sparkly)
The monsters come at you in a straight line and basically, you have to fight them off, walking backwards to make sure you have enough time to beat them
So basically the object of the game would be to figure out how to fight each monster specifically so you go forward more than you go back and make it to a checkpoint
And you’d have this journal you make of every monster you see, with all the info on how to beat them, whether you were the one who fought the monster, or one of the other three players with you
You can play solo, but if three of the four people in your group dies but the fourth one makes it, all four of you can still progress, so single player mode is super hard. Computer players are available but they kinda suck
And as you go along you discover all of the other people have become these monsters, and certain monsters target certain people so there’s only so many monsters you can see on your own
Some monsters may specifically like to target girls over boys. Some may target people under the age of 20. Some may just want to only fight people who have a sparkly pink sword. The more odd the thing is that attracts the monsters, the harder it is to find them
So as you go through the game you have two objectives, get to a safe spot and end the game, or the optional one to keep heading out every day to find new monsters
Anywho sorry for my ugly face. It took like a billion tries to get a decent photo, you don’t understand. I can’t smile for a photo bc it feels fake so I gotta laugh so I took this while watching Legend of Korra. Also sorry for my ugly hair, I haven’t brushed it today and if you don’t brush it 7 times per second it will light itself on fire.
Anyway here’s me and I hope none of your eyeballs burned out bc of me
For me, being a dark-skinned black woman with natural hair, getting to be this center of this love story — Growing up, I didn’t get to see that very often…I think that artists and people in entertainment, we have such an incredible power to remind people of their worth and to help people dream big. So it’s exciting to get to be a part of that.
