FanSHEN produce theatre productions with the aim of giving participants something to experience, instead of something to consume. Encouraging people to participate, rather than observe.
Invisible Treasure was their digital-playground that was avaiable form the end of October until mid-November back in 2015 that – even after participating in – I couldn’t adequately explain to another, no matter how hard I tried. Fortunately, they have a video for that!
One of the department lecturers was asked by a collaberator of theirs at FanSHEN if any of his students would be interested in, or able to do some content for their Invisible Treasure show. I replied due haste to the email/request, and was apparently the first to reply. I’m quite sure that’s the only reason I got the work.
I quickly realised that in the time frame they were hoping for, it was going to be difficult – albeit doable – to get it all done. I could comfortably take care of two of the four pieces, so that’s what happened. Time management and delegation to the rescue! I got in touch with someone else who was very enthusiatic about working on the project, and just like that the workload was halved.
What is a Link Aggregator?
A link aggregator is an application that collects and stores links to websites. Both Reddit and the bookmarking feature of your browser are excellent examples of this.
Have you ever found interesting articles online while you’re out and about? Well I have, and I’m willing to bet that reading those beefier articles on a mobile device is difficult. You feel a need to save those links for later, but what are the chanced you’ll actually remember remember to? Reading list apps tend to be a bit clunky, and bookmark syncing with a browser like Chrome simply doesn’t work in the way I – personally – want it to.
I can’t deny that I find point and click adventures slow at times – actually, looking at my track record, it would be safer to assume I find them slow most of the time – yet there are certain charms and amusements to them all the same. Deponia, not to be confused with its sequel Chaos on Deponia, has found its way into my library and I must say, while I’m enjoying it, I have mixed feelings about it.
Looking around a bit, it seems a number of people initially questioned Path of Exile’s dark and grim look, for instance one writer over at MMOHut noted that the game’s graphics looked very medieval and dark. While this is certainly true, the style fits the while theme of being thrown into a land of monstrous horrors where it’s every man for himself, and such is obvious from the onset.
