  • What's a game you've always wanted to recommend but never got the chance to because it's too niche/weird
    Honestly, no. The game was a very well-received and oft-talked about solo dev project the year it came out (and the years after that).

  • TIFU by forgetting to renew my passport and ending up in Hawaii
    If you haven't yet played it, see Papers, Please for an immersive experience of the problem at hand. It's a masterpiece that stands alone in the world of interactive art, and made me and my wife laugh to tears as we replayed it to get all the endings. Source: about 2 years ago

  • I physically cannot comprehend how one man managed to learn how to compose music, program in C#, draw pixel art, market, and distribute a game like this within only a few years.
    Check out Papers, Please and The Return of the Obra Dinn, by one Lucas Pope. Source: about 3 years ago
  • Transiting the Suez Canal in a Private Sailboat
