This original painting by Gareth Hinds, some very early concept art for Shock 2, hung above my desk back at Irrational. Such a strange, dramatic mood to it that doesn't feel like anything that ended up in the game.

So Amir Rajan and I shipped A Dark Room, a game we rebuilt from scratch for the Nintendo Switch. After a hectic launch day, a few hours later in a quieter moment, I found myself realizing: holy shit, I shipped a console game I wrote from scratch.

I've been doing this for 20 years, and I _know_ this is a shitty metric, but goddamn, I felt totally legit yesterday.

County streamed on YouTube with BBC commentary? Don't mind if I do.

"We decoded the message from space."
"Great! But... You don't look happy?"
"It's just 'Help, how do I turn this transmitter off?' repeated."

"I have come to grant you the power to protect this land."
"What, like magic?"
"Sort of. Come the need, you will be able to combine, to form a hugely powerful body."
"Cool! How does it work?"
"First, you register to vote, then you keep yourself informed..."

The person appeared out of nowhere.
"Hell," they said, "I come from the future."
"Uh. It's 'hello'," I said, "also, what? Have you come to change the past?"
"Well, imagine you were me. What could you change now to improve the future?"
"Oh, there are lots of-"
"So bloody do it!"

Got through the water temple, why is Dark Link more fun than Morpha? "Hey Morpha, come over here, I've got something to show you..."

They watched the news in silence.
"What should we do now?"
"I made a list:"

IN CASE OF APOCALYPSE:
1. Tell all you love that you love them
2. Return all library books
3. Pet a puppy

"Um. About 2..."
"Too low?"
"No, but only return books you have finished."
"You scoundrel!"

"What are you doing?"
The princess wiped the sweat off her brow and looked down at the knight.
"I'm building a tower."
"Why?"
"For safety."
"From whom?"
"From knights. No offence."
"You do not need to fear knights!"
"I don't. But my dragon does. This is for him."

When aliens landed
We said: "Save us"
And: "You are fake"
And: "We are busy"
And: "Leave us alone"
And: "Die"

The aliens listened
And said: "No"
And did nothing
Except watch us

And our anger
Did nothing
Our shame, our fear, our hate
Nothing
To them

How alien they are, aliens

You're not clumsy, you are just his latest victim. Napkin?
