Numb Top Hat, my first game, is now available on itch!
It’s a short story of apathy, explored through challenging puzzles in a steampunk environment. You can download it for Windows free of charge. Are you paying attention to detail?
Answer questions like who was the deadliest dictator, while pretending to pet a parrot on your shoulder, but don’t get distracted by your friend’s psalm on the background. Make decisions that will affect how much you will drink and make sure the captain is on your side. But, be careful... The Kraken could be nearby!
Stay tuned! Arrrrrrrrrr!
Inspired by the games that shaped us and irritated by industry norms, we are starting our own game studio, a space where we can create freely and hopefully offer something new to the gaming community.

"Offending servers will only be silenced, not blocked, blocks will be reserved for technical assaults only such as DDoS attacks, or legal issues such as sexual abuse and child porn."
But of course whoever handles tthat directory did absolutely **no** due diligence and didnt even once reach out to us to fact check.
The 2021 Global Estimates indicate there are 50 million people in situations of modern slavery on any given day, either forced to work against their will or in a marriage that they were forced into.
That does not include soldiers that are in the army against their will, so the real number is even higher.

If going full vegetarian/vegan is too much for you, consider reducing a little your beef consumption.
According to a new study, if everyone ate 20% less beef, global deforestation would be cut in half from the projected values for 2050. Microbial protein is the way to go.
