I Dream of Hungry Zombies

The night of 2/3/21, I had one of those weird dreams where you keep “waking up”, only to realize it’s just another dream.  The dream began with zombies in our house (it didn’t look like any house we had ever lived in before, though).  Mother Duck and I had trapped the zombies somewhere, and we were trying to figure out what to do about them.  These were rather strange zombies, though.  They didn’t just eat brains.  Rather, they had a ravenous hunger for anything and everything, and there was a very real possibility that, if these zombies escaped, they would somehow manage to eat the world’s supply of food so quickly, everyone on the planet would starve and die before it could be replenished!  (Such an idea seems pretty absurd now, but in my dream, it seemed very dire indeed!  Seriously, how could just a handful of zombies eat that much food so quickly?  How would they even cross the ocean?  Would they board planes?  Zombies don’t have passports!)

I just revisited Little Nightmares 2 and got 100% of the trophies in the game! I had missed practically everything, but thanks to a guide I found on YouTube, it didn’t take me long to get every trophy, including finding every spooky shadow child and every hat (minus two that must be part of the Nome’s Attic DLC?). Interesting events are as follows:

Little Nightmares 2 is Back for More Gruesome Goodness

The long-awaited Little Nightmares 2 is finally here, folks!  And though I was a bit hesitant about setting my expectations too high (I’ve been let down by too many sequels, you see), I can safely say this game does not disappoint!  This time around, we play as a boy named Mono, though it isn’t long before we are accompanied by Six from the original game.  (We don’t find out it’s her until the end of chapter 2, but this detail is pretty much already spoiled in the game’s online description, so…)  Mono’s goal is to brave the Pale City, reach the Signal Tower, and find the source of the Transmission.  Along the way, he and Six encounter various grotesque creatures and must use stealth and wits to survive.

Drawing Midna 11 Years Later

When I redraw a character years later, it can be fun to compare them and see how much I’ve improved.  It can also be…a bit painful, to be honest.  One of my most recent pictures was of Midna from The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess.  I’ve been meaning to draw her again for a while, but I didn’t get around to it until 11 years later!  That’s right, I haven’t drawn Midna since 2010, and my first reaction upon seeing this old picture was…what the heck even is this monstrosity?

I just updated my phone’s wallpaper for the first time in years using a recent picture I drew of the Miser Brothers. Now I see Heat Miser on my lock screen and Snow Miser on my home screen. And yes, this status update is largely an excuse to post this picture. I mean, like I need an excuse to do things on my own blog…

Seasons After Fall is Beautiful, Yet Boring

There seems to be a plethora of games out there where you play as an animal (usually a fox, but sometimes a wolf) exploring forests and other natural environments.  Seriously, it should be a genre all its own.  Fe, The First Tree, Spirit of the North, and Lost Ember are all examples of this, and while I played the first two, I skipped on the latter two because I don’t need more of the same general game.  But I did give one more similar game a chance because it was on sale for roughly $2 or $3, Seasons After Fall.
