NITW has been definitely one of my favourite videogames I played recently, and its OST is as wonderful as the game itself. I could actually pick any song from it, but I’ll stick with this one - it’s the perfect song to deal with the first hours in the morning! If you like deep stories, lovable characters, eels and crimes, go give it a try!
If we’re ending OCtober, we’re going out in a bang. With my most Mary Sue of all my OCs.
Yes, she’s a Treasure Planet OC. Yes, she’s married to Jim Hawkins.
Pell’s the treasure planet equivalent to a Siren - Jim’s father is from the exact same species. The Sirens are libertarian fish people, and value personal freedom more than the human laws, interpersonal relationships, and the law of gravity.
And let’s just say Jim’s attracted to her for *ahem* twovery big reasons.

my eyes first came across the cover art of 999 in a list of
recommended NDS games, it instantly got my attention: a game that
combined visual novel parts with escape-the-room puzzles, that had
such an interesting story and a gorgeous art style – it was
something I was bound to like.
I found myself weeping at an upside-down sudoku at three in the
morning just a few weeks after, I knew that picking up 999 was one of
the best decisions I had ever made.
days after that, 999 was all I could think about. The moment when we
found a dead body in the shower room, when Junpei got stabbed in the
back, when Seven told the story about the first Nonary Game, when
Snake (who since then became my favourite videogame character ever)
went berserk and withstood Ace’s gunshots, when we found the Q door
and everything just made sense… It just kept resonating within my
recommended the game to so many friends, and every single one of them
ended up liking it as much as I did. Whenever we talked while they
were playing the game, they were always so surprised by all the plot
twists and yet they were so amazed about it. And even after years
have passed since that, we still get so excited talking about Zero
Escape when we meet.
I replay it or talk about the best moments from the games with fellow
fans, I feel as excited as I did when I played them for the first
time. And no matter the amount of times you go through the different
scenes, you always catch something you hadn’t noticed before, you
begin tying loose threads, you start theorizing on so many things…
They’re the kind of games that you can play as many times as you like
– you’ll never get tired of them. Not only because of that, but
because they have some of the most well-thought writing and plot, as
well as the most lovable characters I have ever come across.
day in which Zero Escape 3 was confirmed to be under development was
just incredible. Many of us thought the day would never come, but
4infinity gave us hope for a third and final game. I wish I had been
in that room when it happened, but unfortunately I was on the other
side of the ocean, staring at thousands of other fans’ tweets,
flashing repeatedly in front of me. In that moment, I felt so
fulfilled. I felt so happy that my favourite videogames were going to
get the final game they deserved. That the fans’ love and support
pushed the game this far.
Escape changed me so much as a person and as an artist. It made me
realize that videogames are so much more than just “kid’s games”,
that they can also tell life-changing stories and make you feel
things you’d never expect to feel by playing on two tiny little
screens. That one day, I will be able to write stories as good as
that one, I’ll be able to breathe life into my own characters, create
scenarios that will someday inspire somebody as much as Zero Escape
you, to every single person who was part of ZE – to Uchikoshi for
creating such a masterpiece thanks to his brilliant writing, to the
artists, Kinu Nishimura and Rui Tomono, who brought the characters to
life, to Shinji Hosoe for the tracks that made us tear up, to
everyone at Aksys that worked on the translation and localization,
and to every single person that put their work on the games that will
forever be my favourite -
My love for videogames has been previously mentioned in the blog - and when it comes to them, Nintendo is my favourite. I have shown videogame inspired accessories, beauty products and decoration pieces, but now I am introducing… The Legend of Tarot. I have recently started collecting tarot decks, and this one was extremely exciting to discover since I can not only appreciate all the wonderful art, but also relate to it on a personal (and kinda nostalgic) level.
There are so many things to say about it. First of all, the girls at Deosil Designs and Ganbatte Cosplay are amazing. They are sweet and attentive, and it is reflected in everything they do. They sent some shiny rupees with the deck, which improve the Zelda experience. Because, if you hadn’t noticed yet, this is a Legend of Zelda inspired tarot deck. Each of the 78 pieces of art is a collaborative work between Alex and Noa. Everything works together to make a single piece of art which reflects the Legend of Zelda spirit, as well as the classic tarot symbolism. They did not only pay attention to the artwork (which is oh so pretty), but also worked hard to make it meaningful.
The deck features so many details. The custom tuck box, for example, lets us know that the suits have been adapted: swords, sticks, bottles and rupees substitute the regular ones. Talking about the suits, there is a nice colour play on the art itself but also on the borders, as you can see on the top right picture - I didn’t notice it at the beginning, but I think subtle details like this add even more cohesion to the deck. And the backs are not only beautiful with their triforces and ocarinas - they are also foil stamped! Most of the elements come from Ocarina of Time and Majora’s Mask - like my absolute favourite card: The Tower, which features Skull Kid. There is an error on the numbering of the Major Arcana (Justice is
marked “XIII” instead of “VIII”), but it’s not a big issue (at least for me) when I’m admiring them or meditating since I focus on the art.
The Legend of Tarot is a great deck for gamers and art lovers alike. My boyfriend is not interested in tarot at all, and he has fallen in love with this one deck! And if you like it too, you should be quick - as of this week, less than 50 decks are still available, and they will not be reprinted! So yeah, very limited edition indeed! They also have a digital interpretation guide with over 100 pages; and yet, if you are not into the tarot format, they also have prints of the cards, as well as other goodies like leather cases and cat toys. If you like The Legend of Zelda, you will love Deosil Designs and Ganbatte Cosplay!
