A quick piece on some beloved holiday-related memories from a few game devs.
When was the last time you played a game that let you experience a sexual encounter with another character? Lucy Blundell's game skips that and focuses solely on the awkward and hangover-ridden morning after.
I spoke with indie game dev, Alonso Martin, for nearly an hour where he ruminated on everything from Andrei Tarkovsky's stance on metaphors to the charming claymation aesthethic of Neverhood, and of course his latest game, Heart Forth, Alicia.

Alexandra Orlando is a game scholar getting her PhD at the University of Waterloo while also serving as EIC on First Person Scholar. Her life often includes triple-checking academic citations while ganking fools in Overwatch.

A clever, and early surrpise for 2016 that proves the pony game genre will not go quietly in the night.
The game doesn’t reward second playthroughs, but it’s still worth a try. If nothing else, it’ll make you remember the joy of seeing a crush come online, and you being gifted with a chat window as they begin another chat with you.
