‘Sunburn!’, A Gravity-Based Puzzle Video Game Featuring a Doomed Spaceship Crew That Is Determined to Die Together

by Rollin Bishop

Sunburn! is a gravity-based puzzle video game by developer Secret Crush that featured a doomed spaceship crew that is determined to die together. Players take on the role of captain of a recently destroyed spaceship, her crew scattered, with no hope of rescue or survival. They must then solve a series of gravity-based puzzles to collect the missing crew before plummeting the group into the local sun–no one dies alone. Sunburn! is currently available on iOS.

Sunburn! is the debut game from Secret Crush — a three person studio founded by three alumni of the prestigious NYU Game Center MFA game design program. Originally a student project, the game was then specially selected for three months of full-time development as part of the NYU Game Center incubator in New York City..

Slave gravesite in New York City

“SOMETHING YOUR TOUR GUIDE MIGHT NOT TELL YOU: 

The heart of NYC’s Financial District is built on a huge 18th century African Burial Ground. Some 419 Africans were discovered in 1991, a large portion women and children.

The burial ground extends from Broadway Southward under City Hall, and almost to the site of the former World Trade Center. It is believed that there are as many as 20,000 slavery-era Africans in graves under the buildings in Lower Manhattan. 

Abolish historical amnesia and ponder for a moment the fact that this financial epicenter of the world is built on slavery, oppression, and death.”

Literally, and daily.

yo. that last sentence hits you in the face like a brick. 

!!!!

wow

Rosalind

This is perfect and I miss her.

via ThePrettiestOne

they will not write about us because darling
we’re not in love
and we both know that poems ought to be about lovers
or brothers
not best friends halfway in the middle
god, i’d never kiss you
but our hands fit like puzzle pieces and your smile makes my heart sing and you cried when you said you love me
voice thick with fear and awe and i knew then i could break you and that terrifies me because you deserve better but i would die for you

when i was thirteen my bedroom window looked out on the big dipper every summer and it made me feel safe but if every star in that constellation went out i’d still have your hands smoothing a brush through my hair (your eyes shine brighter than those distant suns anyway)

we are not the stuff of legends in this world where it’s only love if you fuck the stories people want to hear end in a kiss not a high five or a fistbump but if i’ve got you i don’t need to make history

and while you do not kiss away my tears you let them seep into your shirt and to me, that is just as good



- not every beautiful thing has to be a love story (g.c.r.)

The onion isn’t satire. The onion is pure progressive rage with a thin satire coating.

So you’re saying it has layers?

Well, but periods are a big deal

Well, so are trans women

and intersex women

If having periods were so important, then post-menopausal women would no longer qualify as women, either.

I’ll just let that sit there and fester like the turd of an argument it is.

👏👏👏

And girls too young to have had their periods yet. Or girls born without uteruses. Or girls who, for any other number of medical reasons, do not have periods. I am so sick and fucking tired of “feminists” reducing women to, and defining them by, their physical attributes. You are bad and you should feel bad about it.

Amen. The biological reductivism of so-called “radical” feminists and TERFs is anything BUT radical.

Dorian Gray goes up to the counter and orders a latte. He inhales deeply. “Oh, I would give anything for this cup of coffee to last forever,” he says.

“Really?” says the barista. “I may be able to help you with that.”

Computer PhD Candidate Remixes Barbie Book and Makes the Iconic Doll a Computer Engineer

by Lori Dorn

Barbie Remix

One of my favorite things about remix: If you don’t like the narrative, change it!

When Casey Fiesler, a PhD candidate in Human-Centered Computing at Georgia Tech, came across the issues with the since-removed “Barbie: I Can Be a Computer Engineer“, she set about creating a wonderfully remixed book that can be downloaded for free, reimagining the iconic doll Barbie as a computer engineer despite her impossible figure and overdone blue eyeshadow.

The problematic part is that, as far as I can tell, the steps for becoming a computer engineer if you’re Barbie are:

  • Design a videogame.
  • Get a boy to code it for you.
  • Accidentally infect your computer with a virus.
  • Get a boy to fix it for you.
  • Take all the credit for these things yourself

And the problem isn’t even that Barbie isn’t a “real” computer scientist because she isn’t coding. (I am one of those mostly-non-coding computer scientists myself, though now I’m tempted to make a game about robot puppies shooting lasers anyway.) The problem is the assumption that she is a designer, not a coder, and the coders are boys. (There are also problems with nonsense explanations for computer viruses, taking credit for other people’s work, and inexplicable pillow fights.) I happen to study remix, so one of my first thoughts upon seeing this was: someone is obviously going to remix this. I figured, why wait?

Casey has also created an interactive “Feminist Hacker Page” to “help Barbie be the competent, independent, bad-ass engineer that she wants to be.”
