Welcome to Curate of Curiosities!
This is where I write about the strange, the obscure, or just whatever interests me.
May 23, 2023
Uploaded my final words on Molleindustria! Here I pose the question: have the devs sold out, or is it society?
May 20, 2023
The page for Democratic Socialism Simulator is up! Be sure to watch the accompanying Odysee video on the recently released Green New Deal Simulator!
May 13, 2023
I was planning something else for the last Molleindustria page, but they released a new game a week ago that's more worthy of a writeup than what I had planned. Expect an upload within the next week.
May 7, 2023
Sorry for not updating in a while. I've already written up pages on three more of Molleindustria's games:
- Every Day The Same Dream, an artsy monochrome game about work culture,
- McDonald's Videogame and Unmanned, two flash games that, although playing very differently, have the same basic theme at their cores.
April 23, 2023
Finished the writeup on Oiligarchy, the game that introduced me to Molleindustria's games.
April 9, 2023
The start page for my writeup on Molleindustria is up! Though I ought to warn you, their games are more overtly political than anything I have covered so far.
April 2, 2023
I've got writeups for three or four different works coming down the pipeline. For the most part, things are going normal, but one of the writeups is about a foreign-language comic that has never received an English translation, and is mainly about the really messed up, careless way that Google handled its availability where I live--which has only gotten worse since I started working on it.
March 23, 2023
Finished Moe Era's remaining two routes. Kind of a dud, to be honest.
March 19, 2023
I'm going to go back to Moe Era soon, but so far there doesn't seem to be anything particularly special about the second playthrough. Expect a writeup this coming week.
March 11, 2023
Class of '09 had an update last fall that added some new content. Naturally, I just finished a writeup on it.
March 8, 2023
Added an addendum to my Class of '09 writeup, in light of both a recent update to the game and watching an interview with the game's creator.
February 26, 2023
Finished the writeup of both Full Bokko Youchien and Mikoto Nikki, by the same developer.
February 15, 2023
Started the writeup of Full Bokko Youchien, the visual novel all about getting bullied by kindergarteners.
January 23, 2023
Got a lot of things done this January!
Firstly, finished up the writeups on Nicky Case's games.
Secondly, if you thought I was done with Moe Era, Think again!
December 9, 2022
Finally figured out how to take screenshots of browser games!
On that note, started a page on Nicky Case's games.
September 5, 2022
Uploaded Parts 5 and 6 of the Class of '09 playthrough.
With that, all that's left is to write my final thoughts on this game.
August 14, 2022
Uploaded Parts 3 and 4 of the Class of '09 playthrough.
With that, I believe I've covered all three of the game's "main" "love interests."
August 1, 2022
Uploaded the first and second parts of the Class of '09 playthrough.
July 30, 2022
Already recorded most of the footage I'll need for the Class of '09 page. Some of it has already been uploaded to my Odysee channels:
July 5, 2022
Uploaded my commentary on the intro to Class of 09. (Complete with embedded video!)
July 2, 2022
Started Class of 09, the so-called anti-visual novel made by someone known for anime parodies.
On top of that, I uploaded the game's intro on my Odysee account.
June 14, 2022
Finished the page for Escape from Detroit.
Turns out it wasn't just a ripoff, but a short, unfinished one as well.
June 6, 2022
Started the page for Escape from Detroit.
It's not just "yet another RPG Maker game," but one that rips off one of the most successful indie RPGs ever made.
May 31, 2022
Started an Odysee account and uploaded a video.
May 29, 2022
Finally finished reading the DIY Novel Kit.
May 24, 2022
Completed the second part of the DIY Novel Kit page.
May 13, 2022
Changed the site's name to Curate of Curiosities (the URL will remain the same, though)
May 11, 2022
Started reading (and editing) the DIY Novel Kit based on the longest novel ever written.
April 26, 2022
"An RPG Most Fowl" is complete!
A playthrough of one of the most grotesque indie RPGs you'll ever experience!
April 11, 2022
"A New Era in Self-Help" is complete!
This is a playthrough of a perfectly normal dating sim that in no way has any deep, existential themes right below the surface!
January 24, 2022
"A Miner Setback" is finally finished!
