I have been caught in the grind of scheduling content for Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for August. I’m about half-done with the month. It takes a significant amount of time to put even the simplest posts together, especially when looking back at all of the previous content and tryting to determine if it is relevant. Sometimes it is, sometimes it isn’t.

Weekly Finds

I pull a lot of the items about gaming and movie news here from a number of sources: The Atari Age forums, Retro Indie NewsTime ExtensionIGNRetro Hour podcastItch.io, Facebook, Twitter, etc. What shows up here will change weekly depending on what I happen to find in the wild. I try to include the original sources in the links.

As Ooze, the player navigates the slime through corridors and laboratories suing gravity-shifting abilities to escape dangerous environments.
