Brisby is going to play Hatoful Boyfriend with me.
In April 1982, Martin D. Meeker, former financial consultant to hi-tech electronics firms such as Intel and Amdahl, and five computer software engineers established Data Age, Inc. They got off to a terrific start, but Data Age’s good fortunes were short-lived… VERY short lived. Data Age made its debut at the 1982 Summer Consumer Electronics Show with 10 employees, five science-fiction games and a commitment to ship those games on October 1. Data Age met the ship date it announced at CES and accompanied its initial release with what was regarded (at the time) as “one of the most innovative point-of-purchase materials in the industry.
Called “Mindscape,” the 3 1/2 minute soundtrack, recorded on a flexible plastic disc, dramatized the sounds of Data Age’s Bugs, Sssnake, Airlock, Warplock, and Encounter at L-5 games. The disc, an audio version of the standard consumer catalog, was offered free to dealers and its customers and was the first industry-wide attempt at using the sound medium to generate buyer enthusiasm.
Signal boost for GamePhobias, a wiki-style website dedicated to categorizing games based on content and trigger warnings. Users can either view content warning categories to find games that do and don’t contain the triggering content, or search for specific games to see exactly what content warnings are attached to that title (as well as brief, almost exclusively non-graphic descriptions as to specific scenes/levels containing that content).
It’s a very, very new wiki (IIRC it launched late August) and so its offerings are very paltry right now, and I would seriously encourage anyone with experience with games, wikis, and/or both to contribute however they can.
I’m writing up a review for FFXIV right now, and I seriously encourage anyone who can do this to help out!! This is SUPER helpful to people with triggers and I’m going to use it in the future.
Don’t ignore this, I know gamer culture doesn’t care about mentally ill people but you guys should try to be better than that.
I know the guys who put this together! They’re top notch dudes.
I want this in my house.
