Y Press Games the lovely people behind To Trust an Incubus, have just launched a Kickstarter for there upcoming title Morningdew Farms and earlier this week I got a sneak peak at the demo for this upcoming title and can I just say I had such a blast playing through the demo!
In this visual novel you play as Cody a young man who has just moved into his families old abandon farm right next door to his sister’s farm and the best part for him about moving to the farm? The town of Morningdew is filled with many different bachelors that Cody will have the chance to woo. In my play through of the Demo I got to meet three of these bachelors. A doomsday prepper obsessed store owner named Butch, a man with a mysterious and dangerous past named Rusty and an adorable wolf man named Nuzzler! Yep that furry in the banner is one of the bachelors you get to woo! I think there were a few others in the demo as well but I kinda became instantly obsessed with Butch and Nuzzler! Seriously Nuzzler is damn adorable!
Game play is divided between completely tasks such as farm work and going into town to talk to the other residence and once a week you get a visit the town bathhouse for a little fun… ok its more than a little. I played the uncensored demo and damn I loved the bathhouse time! One other thing I will praise is the humor in this demo, if you love your humor adorably cheesy and full of puns you will be smiling the whole was through like how was.
If this game sounds like something you would love to support like I will be please support the kickstarter help make this game a reality!
Bet you did not think my first post back would be a fanfic rec did you guys? Well I have been wanting to write about this particular series of fics ever since I finished reading them months ago! And this will not be the only post I write about Gotham, I have a very special post in the works right now about the impact that this television series has had on me during this time in my life, but before I start I just want to say it is so awesome to be back here writing again!
In the time I have been away from blogging and for a large part of it away from the anime community as well, I found myself falling into a non anime fandom, the Gotham fandom. A series that I watched when it first aired over here in Australia but was quickly pulled from the air due to lack of an audience. That being said the tv station that initially aired the show made it very hard for those interested to keep up with the show. From constantly moving the time slot to out right not airing the show some weeks to show sports, it was not surprise they were not getting the ratings. Then when I got Netflix last year I found the first three seasons on there and though I only planned to watch a few eps… I ended up binge watching the what was there within a week. Then I found season 4 on dvd and bought that and watched that as well.
Needless to say I have become hooked on this show and like any show with such an amazing cast and being the kind of fan I am I of course starting looking into the shipping community surrounding the show and of course one ship stood out above all others for me and many other fans. That ship will not be the discussion of this post today however. Though if you follow me on twitter you will already know of my great love for Nygmobblepot, the pairing of Edward Nygma and Oswald Cobblepot. Nope this fic rec is actually a rec of two fics that are part of a series called The Dick -n- The Ass. Those fics are Boxcutter and Safe Word and these two fics are a collaboration between fic writers owlettica and Filthycasual. There is also fanart throughout the fics brought to us by Filthycasual themselves.
Now when it comes to fanfiction what is it that is most important to you as a reader or writer? For me it is keeping characters in character to their source material. However, this does not mean that the characters can not have realistic growth throughout the events of the fanfiction written about them and this is where these two fics excel at the greatest! Boxcutter and Safeword take place after the events of season 3 and the Alice Tetch Virus infecting James Gordon and if you are not up to this part of the series stay away from this fic series because there are a lot of season 3 and 4 spoilers within. While under the influence of the virus Jim begins a relationship with one Victor Zsasz, a very dangerous hitman. At the beginning of the story they start very much in character to themselves but as the story moves on so do the characters and there is some very intriguing character growth between both characters in the story and some very very hot interactions between the two. A new relationship will change a person, for better or for worse and the exploration of this on both sides of the relationship makes these fics a must read. From exploring the softer side of a killer to the realization that giving into the darkness in ones self does not have to be the end of the person we have become these themes permeate throughout both stories.
Because this is a story that tackles a lot of violence both show accurate violence given that this is a fic in the Gotham universe and that it also explores a lot of hardcore sexual encounters including blood play and rape this will not be a fic for everyone. However if you enjoy a story that explores the darker side that can come from love and obsession and are looking a fic that explores a not so popular ship within the Gotham universe I can not recommend this series of fics enough.
