The teaser for McKelvie and my own story in POINT ONE in October.
I literally can’t say any more now.
But you’ll like this one.

I wholeheartedly agree, the game is great.
If you have a few spare minutes this weekend, and if you can approach gender identity matters like a grown-up, I highly recommend playing Dys4ia, a new Flash game from Anna “Auntie Pixelante” Anthropy (Mighty Jill Off).
It’s a lovely, personal tale full of microgame snapshots from the transgender game designer’s experience starting hormone replacement therapy. It’s inspiring, not in just the sense of it being a story we can admire, but in that it’s so personal and masterfully executed, that the creative parts in you feel compelled to make something just as real and powerful, something capable of reaching out and changing someone’s perspective or life.
I can’t wait to read her upcoming book, Rise of the Videogame Zinesters (releases on March 20).See also: More Auntie Pixelante works
This should be the new national past-time!
Introducing our new game called:
“Don’t Be A Di*k During Meals With Friends.”
The first person to crack and look at their phone picks up the check.
Our (initial) purpose of the game was to get everyone off the phones free from twitter/fb/texting and to encourage conversations.
1) The game starts after everyone has ordered.
2) Everybody places their phone on the table face down.
3) The first person to flip over their phone loses the game.
4) Loser of the game pays for the bill.
5) If the bill comes before anyone has flipped over their phone everybody is declared a winner and pays for their own meal.
-Starting the game after everyone is seated.
-In the rare event that multiple people flip their phones simultaneously, the bill is split between said players.
- Feel free to invoke penalties/strikes systems.
- No touching or messing with anybody else’s phones.
- You don’t have to stack the phones. This was done for picture taking purposes.
- I realize I should perhaps think of a different name for this awesome game. Because I don’t mean to imply that everyone who checks their phone during meals is a di*k.
- I recommend not being such a stickler or hardass on people about the rules and even initiation of the game. Basic premise is to just get people open to the idea of staying active and attentive to one another. But if someone has to take a call; they have to take a call =).
- Have fun! It’s really more of a fun concept in this new age high tech life of ours. Conversation is the spice of life.
