I'm an artist living in the Atl, GA area.
I live with my Boyfriend, our 4 fishies!

I've been a freelance artist for a while, but I finally took the jump in early 2012. I am now doing art as my full time job.

I work long hours daily in front of a computer, and some times miss the rat race of a sales job but then I remind myself that I am my own boss, and what more could I ask for?

Finding Her Voice: Red’s Agency in Transistor

nissacam:

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: there’s this girl, see—a pretty little thing—and she’s supposed to be the hero of the story. But everything she does is by the men around her. She lacks agency in her own story. She’s not acting independently. She isn’t free to make her own choices.

Like, say, a woman without a voice, and the sword who’s there to fill the silence?

That’s the glaring red flag that comes with Transistor: it sure looks like a game where you’re not supposed to project yourself into the character of Red as much as want to protect her. If Red doesn’t have a voice, then it’s really the sword’s story, isn’t it?

It’s so glaring that it seems like Supergiant Games wants you to think that going in, because the first thing they do is turn that impression on its head. Red doesn’t just have agency within the world of Transistor—the game itself is an exploration of what that means.

We’re going to dive deep into spoilers (right through to the game’s end), so stop here if that’s a problem.

Unless this was entirely scripted there could have been a very real possibility of the dog being injured by someone out of fear. Don’t do this.

My boyfriend and I watched this and thought the same thing.

It’s all fun and games until the dog gets hurt
