The next update to the demo (not sure when that will be but hopefully not far from now.) will be mostly a lot of minor improvements such as:

  • A help window when you make certain choices, as well as an alternate interface for choice-making that will be used over the default sometimes. Name basis selection at the start demonstrates both.
  • The game now lets you know what inventory category an item you just found went in. I figured sometimes it wasn’t clear enough.
  • Randomized battle transitions. Not very useful but [tumblr voice] …aesthetic. There are 18 different transition animations.
  • When HP drops below half, it turns orange. When it drops below 25%, it turns red. 

If you played already, it won’t be worth replaying unless you really want to. This update will mainly improve the game for newcomers.

Good morning cool cats and sand urchins of zone 5. Kookie speaking from the Brain Dead's warehouse. I'm on a little vacation from real life, my head inhabited by bugs and fairies, as I watch bodies around me covered in ash and glitter licking salt cubes and drinking gasoline-like coffee, showering me in paper sardines and smiles. I'm sending this little air wave postcard to say hello and see you soon, all of you in health and joy. Love you!

And we love you back, desert queen. Hope you can return to us soon, the air around here feels cold without you. 



To His Ruin

2 Chronicles 28:23- “For he sacrificed to the gods of Damascus that had defeated him and said, “Because the gods of the kings of Syria helped them, I will sacrifice to them that they may help me.” But they were the ruin of him and of all Israel.” (NKJV)

Devotion: It’s easy to look around and compare ourselves to others and desire the sam thing others have. King Ahaz did the same thing in this passage and was quick to choose the greener grass on the other side. However, little did he know, following others would bring his downfall. God has an exciting plan for you, will you choose to follow it or get distracted today and chase after “greener” grass?

There were those on assignment to destroy you, but God sent grace and mercy to save you. It was grace and mercy that brought you through.

The old gods are dead.

Zeus gets high alone and remembers the days when the sky was his, before life caught up with him in a dark alley way.

Hera waits at home. She knows. She knows it all. She wants to tell him it’ll get better, he’ll be okay, she loves him. She wants to take her own advice. She wants to lie. She never will.

Apollo and Artemis travel the world. They have a one way ticket to the moon.

Poseidon swims into the sea, or maybe it’s the sky. No one can tell the difference anymore. The girl with serpents for hair mourns for him on the shores of the end of the world.

Hades lies awake, his wife curled around him. He smiles because people finally believe in death.

Athena cries. She is transparent and weightless as she rides the midnight train, her voice is hoarse from protests. Wisdom left here long ago.

Demeter counts down the days until her daughter returns. She is made of memories and madness, but what’s the difference?

Persephone wears her strength and her darkness. Beauty is power, and she will make the world know her name.

Ares crumbles like dust. He stopped understanding war a long time ago. Senselessness topples heroism every time.

Aphrodite gets drunk on the sky again. She catches her reflection in the clouds. Her innocence has left her a long time ago.

Hermes runs through the streets. He is young, young and beautiful, and he knows it. As he slips away, his smile doesn’t.

Dionysus watches it all. He watches the family he once knew laugh and cry and forget. He never forgets. He’s been here a long time. He is watching them flicker out and fade.

The gods are dying. The gods are dead. The gods are us.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
—  Isaiah 43:18-19

you’re five
and you’re running around making mud pies in your backyard
with your best friend Jesus
and your mother reads you story after story before bed
Jesus cuddles up next to you with his arms behind his head
and you don’t know the feeling of sadness or loneliness
so that smile stretching wide is genuine instead

you’re 25
and you’re running around working 40 hours a week
travel time plus the hour you eat plus chores plus bills plus
you’re exhausted
and your mother is only a phone call away but
she’s busy and you’re busy and you haven’t spoken in a week
and sadness and loneliness are no longer knocking on your door
they’ve clawed their way into your skin and manifest themselves inside you
they’re a part of you
and it’s dark
and the thoughts in your head won’t leave
and you scream
and you cry
and you forget
you forget about your friend
your best friend
from when you were five
and you’re 

but He’s still there
He always was
He was simply waiting
for you to meet Him halfway

but now you’re falling and He’s worried

and you’re worried

you think you’re done
you’re drowning in sadness and loneliness
and anxiety
and depression
and PTSD
but you’ve still got one good fight left in you

so you land on your knees
