Storytelling in Games

There is so much potential for games to become an engaging storytelling medium. This potential is not being fulfilled. Most games seem to fall into two categories when it comes to writing. They either do not understand storytelling techniques, and fail to tell an intriguing story, or try to imitate film, which can come across like it can not decide what it wants to be … Continue reading Storytelling in Games

Medusa, an interview with a serial killer, gone sexual badass

It’s erotic, it’s untamed and it’s outright raucous. Medusa is a ingenious take on the classic gorgon tale, emulating the troubles of a contemporary star who just happens to have a snakes for hair and a gaze that turns men into a shadow of themselves. Except their penises have just dropped off and then subsequently used for bowling pins – this show is wild. Medusa … Continue reading Medusa, an interview with a serial killer, gone sexual badass

Quavo Huncho Album Review: cold and uncultured

Review: A Simple Favor

“And though she be but little, she is fierce” – William Shakespeare Words which seem so fitting for the newly released comedy, crime, drama – A Simple Favor. Adapted from Darcey Bell’s novel, Paul Feig (Bridesmaids) directs this fast-paced, comedic crime with an almost Neo-Noir aesthetic, which feels reminiscent of hit thrillers such as Gone Girl (2014) and The Girl on the Train (2016), but … Continue reading Review: A Simple Favor

Women in Power review – a strange but majestic musical comedy

Seven female writers came together to reimagine Artisophanes’ ‘The Assemblywomen’, a radical comedy following a group of Athenian women as they stage a hostile take-over of the city.
