Most gamers don’t realize that there are plenty of games that offer the same experiences as some of their favorite AAA franchises, but in bite sized chunks. Here are some great indie games for those of you who are fans of series like Gone Home, Loco Roco and Agents of Mayhem.
I worked with the guys at Goombastomp earlier last year to rank the MCU in it’s current state. So in the lead up to Captain Marvel and Avengers: Endgame, I thought I’d share the post here on my blog.
This piece might come across as man-splaining to some, but it was written as part of my university course, with the goal of shedding light on what some members of the games industry have had to struggle through. If your a woman who wants to join the games industry, or a man who thinks opportunities have always been equal between the genders, this might of interest.
During my time studying Communications at AUT, I took a variety of courses. From acting to creative writing, and radio production to game design. However when all four years had past, I came out as an Advertising major.
I’m very proud of all the work I did within the realm of advertising. I wrote TV scripts for make up, re-designed beer bottles, planned public activation’s for grass mats, prototyped apps for youth mental health services and so on.
None of these were made public, and were used purely for academic purposes. However I’d like to share one i’m particularly proud of. A simple TradeMe advertisement for a cup and saucer. It was the first ad I ever wrote.

We like to have fun at Quiet Stories, and spread love to other creators that inspire us. So although no one asked for it, and we are totally unqualified to offer any awards, these are all the non-gaming media that we loved in 2018.
It is an undeniable fact that fighting games sell extremely well. Despite this, Street Fighter, Tekken and Mortal Kombat are all niche products. Yes the communities built around them support them in mass, but most gamers are wary of the genre. Many like myself are intimidated by the expansive roster of previous titles, the inherently odd Japanese style and the intricate web of combos to learn.
