This is the fastest $20 I’ve ever spent.
How are you going to take one of the best book covers of the last couple years and turn it into the most banal film poster?
Notably, from the screenshots it seems that the in-flight entertainment is public domain (Le Voyage dans la Lune and Merrie Melodies), including the book, À rebours, considered part of the Decadent movement, which may or may not be significant? I ain’t no fancy art feller.
Bizarrely, this is being distributed by AMC Games (yes, the AMC of “Mad Men” and “Breaking Bad”), and this is their first game.
On why the Nintendo Switch doesn’t need 4K:
How many people are really looking at the Animal Crossing on their TV and thinking “no thank you, it’s not in 4K” or Paper Mario: The Origami King and dismissing the Switch because the graphics don’t have ray tracing? Literally nobody. Players come to Nintendo for quality IP, innovative titles, and long-lasting gameplay, not graphics.Raymond Wong, Input
This reminds me of the things Android zealots are always insisting the iPhone has to do, things that no iPhone user actually cares about, because Android zealots are “spec-heads.”
I do wish Nintendo would come out with a “Switch Ultra Lite,” which was similarly inexpensive to the Switch Lite but didn’t have a screen at all and was just a TV console.
Last Spring I got a flyer included with an order from Sacred Bones advertising a “Gathering of the Children”:
Today I got an email from them with the subject line “Uncovering a maniacal cult leader’s lost psych folk gem!,” which got me really excited. But it turns out to be a full album of music from the fictional Jeremiah Sand from Mandy.
It’s even available as an 8-track!
The Children of the New Dawn have also created a website, “last updated September 21, 1999” (the autumnal equinox, I assume?)
Also check out this sweet Boris Vallejo-like painting of Jeremiah Sand from the Bandcamp page:
