🦋 Mothmen 1966 (2022) – “we all need a little darkness” // Game Review

If you’re going to play only one indie game this year – this is it.

In a world filled with stunning life-like 3D graphics, DALL-E that makes art out of words, and video game trends that apply VHS filters on poorly rendered face models, finding something fresh and unique is extremely rare. Who would think, that mixing cryptids, pulp-like story, and solitaire with a text-adventure game, could shake the world? Apparently, that’s exactly what LCB Game Studio did in Mothmen 1966.

⚡ Powdered energy drinks – power, focus, and no sugar

It was May 2019 when I learned that powdered energy drinks were a thing, obviously, through an ad on Facebook. The first brand I met was Sneak, and soon enough I placed my first order.

Ready?

Host (2020) – the quarantine found-footage // movie review

I’m not writing here a lot, but sometimes I really need to. Usually, it’s CSS-related, but today, ta-da, more horrors. And to be precise – one of the newest Shudder Originals – Host.

Once I first heard about that idea (on Shudder’s Twitter account) I already knew it’s gonna be something worth watching. The concept of a movie filmed during a quarantine, with people talking over Zoom! Yes, please! That’s the modern-era horror I crave.
