General media recommendation thread!
Some starters from me ~
Zoe and I are reading Ursula K. Le Guin’s Earthsea Cycle (currently both midway through book 5) and WOW cannot recommend strongly enough!! So magical and engrossing, so well paced, such incredible prose, such strong ideas and images and characters and just, everything. Really inspired by it.
Recently (like a few months ago) played Even the Ocean by Sean Han Tani + Marina Kittaka and really can’t stop thinking about it or telling people to play it. I wish it were longer but I got a few really lovely Saturday mornings out of it. Been meaning to go check out their previous thing Anodyne, but I sit at my keyboard all day so the lack of controller support’s stopping me for now.
Spent this morning in Eastshade from Danny Weinbaum, Jaclyn Ciezadlo, Phoenix Glindinning, Daniel Merticariu, and I’m sure a bevy of others. It took me a few weeks to get into it but I kept coming back because it’s just so charming and exactly the pace I want from a game right now. Finally got past the opening town and looking forward to many future mornings just wandering around a forest picking mushrooms and painting landscapes for townspeople.
