Anyone else waiting for the delayed announcement that Halloween was moved to November 9th this year?
Perhaps it's tempting to turn to videogames to escape the news at the moment but let's not forget that they can also be used to inform and educate. Take a look at We Become What We Behold and From Darkness in this monthly selection for examples of that.
Otherwise, there are some genuinely pleasant virtual scenes to escape into if you need that. Bob&Dob, Vestige, and ROM are your friends. Otherwise, if you haven't had enough murkiness this past week, turn to Coward Town, ULTRA ADHD, and unfinished demo for an overdose on doom and gloom.
