A game about writing fiction



The idea is simple, you explore a world, walk through ruins of a lost civilization, make conclusions about what you see and then you write these conclusions, creating a unique story about what you think had happened. You also can share your version of the story and read the stories created by other people.

If you are a compulsive liar, you gonna have lots of fun, right?

The game is already backed in kickstarter and should be released in March 2015 to PC and MAC. Click to watch the video, it explains the whole thing much *better greater* than I.

The uncomfortable designs of Katerina Kamprani

The images below are creations from Katerina Kamprani, from Greece. As you may have noticed, the idea is to use the concept of design to improve things, but on the opposite direction. To check more works from her, just click here. Quite interesting, no? Oh, and you can click to enlarge.

A post-it notes panel to one event from Intel

At last September 24th and 25th in São Paulo, Brazil, Intel promoted the Intel Innovation Week event and among all the activities and presentations I had the opportunity to be a small part of the whole event creating to them a panel of post-it notes at the Coffee Station area.

The idea was to create a positioning matrix, so when all the post-its here placed they would form the intel logo and the logo of the event.

Firstly, here are some images from the setup day.

The blank panel, before we glue the positions matrix

On the right, my father (aka some sort of Macgyver, but better) and, on the left, the "chubby-hand-moving-as-if-knows-something", me

My sister also helped (hey, you, respect, ok?)

My father doing work and I pretending doing work (it's a lie) 

These written things are the colors that the post-it to that position should be. Why so many text? It is because I worte to each color its name in Portuguese, English, hexadecimal and RGB, to give you an example, the green ones had written "Verde, Lime, #00FF00, (0, 255, 0)".


Since I could not attend to the event, the photos below of the panel coming to life were collected in Instagram, tumblr and were also taken by our already known friend of the house Mr. Ezequiel França.


- I heard it will need 3 thousand post-its to complete this panel, I doubt it will be completed
- Yeah, girl, tell me about it

Little by little post-its are being placed

Little by little

Suddenly, something begins to form
Remember this one, it will come back later

This one deserves a special comment.  It is written "Carolina Barreto Silva, would you marry me?". I found that on Instagram, I don't know if it is truth, if a marriage really will happen from this, or whatever. But, we do have the next imagem, that perhaps is not from a actual couple, and if it is, there is no warranty that they have some connection to the message, however, although, even so,  bla bla bla, just for fun, let's all pretend it was real, that the the image below is from the couple of the message and they are going to get married. Just between us, ok? *wink

Oh look, the couple celebrating their future marriage! (Yeah, yes. *wink)

Almost complete

That image again, now with post-its all around it

Observe, there is a mustached man talking to a bunny. Of course.


This may be the last post-it being placed. Or maybe not.

The panel is completed! The girl cover her mouth, the fireworks explode, such emotion!


You can't hear it, but they are like "Yeaeyyy!!!"


Mission completed!

My favorite picture, the panel completed, among the people


Well, putting all the jokes aside for while it was a great experience. I had never done something so big with post-its, the panel was designed to have 2,4 meters height (around 8 feet) by 9 meters lenght (around 30 feet), with space to more than 3 thousand post-it notes.

Drawing using post-it notes is different than drawing on post-it notes, and it is always interesting to do these type of creations that depends of other people getting interested so the whole thing can work, unexpected things always come up, and I like the way the panel changes from something I designed, to be something part of the event, to then become something owned by the people with their messages and stories.

How long to beat that game?

Perhaps you are enlightened by Chronos or maybe just a lazy bastard, but to most people time is always missing to do all things and if, and only if, you like playing games it is very likely that you need to develop techniques to balance time between your obligations as a “big boy/girl/alien” and your time to play.

HowLongToBeat.com is a website of collaborative content with a database of games and how many hours it takes to beat them! Interesting, non?

They even had the gentle touch to separate the time it would take to complete only the main story, the main story and some extra things, and the time it would take to complete the all of everything.

Bellow there is some examples of the short version of data to some games (to all games there is a complete page with more details if need), and if you feel like knowing the website yourself, just click here.

Where is home?

For you that, once in a while, thinks about getting all your things and leave your country, or, who knows maybe, even your planet.

A walking origami robot

That is how it happened: I saw the news over the web, then I read about it and it all seemed very interesting to promote here, since robots are a recurrent subject here on the website and so on, but then I watched the video and then the video ended up here for another reason. Take a look.



It all looks interesting and ok, until the moment the robot starts walking. At the moment it starts shaking as a dancing queen, it is as if, suddenly, it all turned into a comedy video. Or, perhaps, it is just me being an asshole.

Seriously, such a interesting work and etc, that deserves to be promoted and all, they really could not make a better video? Of course, maybe it could just be a smart plan, part of a well elaborated theory of conspiracy to fool the fools of the whole world that they should never fear an army of wobbling robots that may one day ***attention to the wordplay*** shake the ground beneath our feet (ha!).
