reblogging here because i can see this being relevant to anyone who’s ever tried to get out of an abusive relationship

Reblogging because that last comment made me reread the whole thing in a new light and realize this could be vital information. So, putting it out there for everyone, and hoping no one ever really needs it.

Here is a list of games that I have compiled and that have personally made me feel… this weird… fuzzy feeling. These games are adventures, they’re something that will make you have to sit down and think about. I’ll update it if I ever get that feeling again.

You Find Yourself in a Room - manually input text

"Heads up: This game features some foul language and a few heartbreakingly demeaning insults, particularly in the second half. You’ve been warned."

Alter Ego - choices

Alter Ego is an online life simulation browser game. (It’s hard to explain.)”

no-one has to die. - puzzles

"4 people are trapped in a building fire and need your help to escape."

A small talk - manually input text

You wake up. Alone, in a dark room. Alone? No, there is someone talking to you through a console. Will you respond?

pinchyourselfawake:

i love indie games. they are practically my lifeblood. seriously, these things are fantastic. in some cases, they can outweigh the insanely priced, over hyped commercial games that you see everywhere. maybe not in graphics but in story line and experience and that’s what i feel you should get out of a game.

so i’ve tried my best to whip up a list of 300+ free indie games! they’re across a pretty wide number of genres and skill levels, and i still have a lot of work left to do, but i’d like to present you with my list now. this blog will also be entirely dedicated to them. come check it out if you’d like to help.

and without further ado, 300+ free indie games

This is a simple text based game where you play as a young trans person trying to buy some underwear. I made it with the intention of showing cis people what it’s like to be trans. You can play as a trans girl, trans boy, or a nonbinary person. It’s short, so you can play it multiple times for different paths. There are several paths, some better, some worse; if you’re easily triggered by dysphoria or transphobia, you may want to avoid this game. Some paths are safer than others, depending on how well you pass (surprise, surprise). TW for homophobic/transphobic slurs, transphobia/transmisogyny, slurs, misgendering, and possible violence.

I did this just to see how relatable it was, and holy shit it was like someone put me back in the spots i was in only a year ago.  My heart is racing shit. 

ow… my everything hurts…

Hey all my cis followers: this is instructive. Go play it.

Essential Productivity Apps for any student:

  1. Caffeine-  Prevents your screen from going into sleep mode. Great if you’re writing notes on an article and the screen keeps dimming, whilst you hope that if you stare long enough, the phrase “homologous ways to a view of hegemony” will start to make sense.
  2. Flux- If you find that you can’t sleep for ages after studying late at night, then this app is a total game changer. It basically turns the light on the screen red, because science people say that blue light keeps you awake and red light doesn’t. (*Full Disclosure* I’m not a scientist)
  3. Focusbar- The annoying voice of your mother nagging you to finish your homework…in app form. You can set the annoying level (I have it set on “wildly annoying”) and a bar will appear in the corner every few seconds to remind you that you’re supposed to be doing something else besides looking at cat photos. 
  4. Microsoft Office- self explanatory, so I’ve linked to an article about life hacks for Microsoft Office instead. Because I’m just that awesome. 
  5. Nag- Does your 5 minute study break keep turning into an hour on Youtube? Then you need Nag in your life. It’s basically an alarm/timer. But an extremely loud and annoying alarm/timer that’s very difficult to ignore. The bells genuinely sound more judgemental the longer you ignore it.  
  6. Self Control-  Also known as Cold Turkey for Microsoft users. If you absolutely cannot be trusted with an internet connection, then you need Self Control in your life. You add a list of websites to the “blacklist”and then set how long you want the app to work for, and for that duration of time you wont be able to access those website. Seriously, not even rebooting your computer or uninstalling the app will let you access the blacklist until your time is up. Tough love at its finest.
  7. Zotero-  The new love of my life. Zotero allows you to manage all your citations and sources in one easy place. It’s an absolute life saver- no joke. There’s an in-word add in, so it will write your bibliography and citations for you in any format you want. There’s a chrome/firefox add in and a mobile app, so you don’t even have to type the citation into Zotero. Just press the button it does all the hard work for you. It even updates itself online, so you can still access your bibliography if your computer crashes. I <3 Zotero 5eva.

if what you’ve been craving is women’s sports manga, may i recommend

Crimson Hero by Mitsuba Takanashi: Volleyball manga about high school student Nobara Sumiyoshi, who has serious talent and ambition for the sport - but is stuck in a role where she is being pushed and groomed for nothing more than inheriting her family’s restaurant for the rich. Transferring to an entire new school to go after her dreams of volleyball, Nobara ends up battling her mother - among many other challenges - for her love of the sport.

Teppu by Ohta Moare: Women’s MMA manga. Ishidou Natsuo is a prodigy at anything she does - sports, academics, and seemingly even martial arts, nothing challenges her, and with her height, she even loms over everyone else in the school. Until one day she runs into a Yuzuko Mawatori, a shorter fellow student with thick eyebrows who’s trying to recruit people into the school’s MMA club, and, challenging her to a spar, finally finds one thing in life that challenges her… and decides to dedicate herself to MMA in chase of that challenge, and for an opportunity to “wipe that smile off her face”. Highly character focused manga with a deep knowledge and respect of the sport. Imagine if the antagonist in a sports manga was now the protagonist.

Tetsuwan Girl by Tsutomu Takahashi: Historically set women’s baseball manga. In 1949, a barmaid, Tome Kano, lost everything in the war, and hasn’t had much direction in her life since. When a wealthy man, Katsuya Ranzaki, enters her life, things take a new, bold turn for her - and she ends up getting sucked rapidly into the world of women’s baseball. High drama and high emotions set among gorgeous art as Tome struggles and sweats and bleeds to finally have a “real life”.
