Conan: How does he respond when you show these to him?
Will: The other day he was in, um, Atlanta. He was, like, working. He was directing. I knew he was super busy, so it was the right time to send him a picture. And I sent him this picture and all he simply replied on the chain… “You’ve ruined my day.”
On August 15th, the developers behind Layers of Fear will
release their new game, >Observer_. Set in a dystopian cyberpunk
world, you play as Dan Lazarski, a neural detective known as an
Observer. With your augmentations, you can hack into peoples minds to
solve crimes all while reliving some of their biggest fears and
nightmares. One rainy night you get a call from your estranged son,
seemingly in danger and asking for help. Once you trace that call to a
decrepit apartment complex in the slums of Krakow, your investigation
This game hit me just like Soma did. I wasn’t sure
what to expect at first, but the environment immediately grabbed my
attention and before long, i was immersed completely in the world and
its characters. With a mix of Blade Runner, Midgar from Final Fantasy 7,
the movie Brazil and the developers own unique touch, the gritty look,
feel and atmosphere of Observer are pretty much perfect. We’re talking
Rapture/Arkham Asylum/Tallon IV (Metroid Prime), level of detail and
quality here. While most of the game takes place in and around a single
apartment complex, its size and labyrinth like layout are deceiving. I
was often reminded of how Stanley Kubrick purposely built the
hotel in The Shining to be confusing and off-putting. You constantly
feel a sense of unease at the multitude of tight hallways with rooms that are
so close, or at such odd places, they couldn’t possibly fit inside the
building. While the observing (hacking minds) parts are interesting,
thrilling and a nice change of pace, the true star of the show in my
opinion is the incredibly realized “real world” aspect of the game.
Whether you’re going door to door learning about the residents, or
finding rooms that are open/unlockable and searching them for clues, or
simply just exploring this steamy, crumbling, wire-strewn slum, each
aspect is immensely enjoyable and rewarding.
the “average game takes 100 hours to complete” factoid actualy just statistical error. average game takes 30 hours to complete. xenoblade chronicles which takes ten years to complete, is an outlier adn should not have been counted
Characters: reader, Bucky, reader’s mother, Maria (mentioned)
Summary: Your dreams of kissing your small town life goodbye are about to come true when an unexpected detour leaves you stranded. Meeting the handsome local mechanic has you rethinking your plans. Perhaps happiness is less about where you’re headed and more about the people you meet along the way.
A/N: I’m so excited about this series, you guys. I’ve been daydreaming about this story for months and every time I hear the song that inspired it I still get butterflies. I started this part 6 months ago and finished it, but I wasn’t ready to let it out into the world. But when @bionic-buckyb mentioned her 5k AU Writing Challenge and “mechanic” was one of the prompts, I knew it was meant to be. This story is close to my heart. I really hope you like it. Any feedback is appreciated. <3
Pack yourself a toothbrush dear Pack yourself a favorite blouse. Take a withdrawal slip Take all of your savings out.
Cause if we don’t leave this town, We might never make it out I was not born to drown. Baby, come on.
Those first few hours of freedom were absolute bliss! Flying down the highway with the windows down, music blasting as you sang at the top of your lungs. It was everything you had dreamed of. You did it. You were out. You had quit your job, cashed out your life savings, bought a cheap but reliable car, and hit the road without looking back.
All was going according to plan. That is, until 4 hours later your car started to smoke and sputter, compelling you to pull to the side of the road for fear of dying in a ball of fire. There wasn’t anything you could do at the moment, what with it being 2am at the time. Thankfully, it was the middle of summer so sleeping in your car wasn’t too uncomfortable, at least at night.
