(@randileeharper recommended this rhythm game, saying:)
“it is very fun! but it is also VERY difficult to get into. i love it because it’s like music therapy, and requires enough concentration that it works for adhd/anxiety (for me, anyways). most people get frustrated after trying it, but if you stick with it, it gets easier. :)”

Arcade Spirits on Steam
“Arcade Spirits is a romantic visual novel that follows an alternative timeline where the 1983 video game crash never occurred. It's 20XX and you've just started a new job at the Funplex game arcade. Who will you meet along the way? Will you find the romance you're seeking?”

(@kit_flowerstorm recommended this, saying—)
“I’m biased (I helped with #accessibility in Arcade Spirits and the dev team is great) but this game made me feel hopeful. Even with the protagonist being so used to frozen meals & not wanting to get their hopes up. If you need a smile, check this out.”

VGDensetsu: Designing 2D graphics in the Japanese industry
“Some graphic designers toyed with these specificities and mastered the 0.5 dot technique. The word ‘pixel’ translates in Japanese to ‘ドット’ (’dot’). It seems that Hiroshi Ono (AKA Mr Dotman) was the first to use that word to describe his work, talking about dot-e (ドット絵, the ‘e’ is the same as in ‘Ukiyo-e’ and means picture) and dot character (ドットキャラクター or ドットキャラ) in the February 1983 issue of Namco NG.
“‘It’s a technique where by slightly changing the color of surrounding pixels, to the human eye it looks like the pixels move by around 0.5 pixels.’ explains Kazuhiro Tanaka, graphic designer on Metal Slug (1996). His colleague Yasuyuki Oda adds that ‘Back in the old days, we’d say [to our artists] ’add 0.5 of a pixel’, and have them draw in the pixels by taking scanlines into account. But with the modern Full HD monitor, the pixels comes out too clearly and too perfectly that you can’t have that same taste.’”

How modders are removing enemies from games to create stress-free experiences | PC Gamer
“Mods for games are usually additive. New features, forgotten content… mods are usually about putting more into a game. Yet in recent years we’ve seen the rise of a particular kind of mod that takes things away. Specifically, taking away a game’s enemies or threats. We previously covered a mod which removed all danger from first-person sci-fi horror Soma—it later become an official game mode—but there are plenty more games out there getting mods that do the same and they’re equally fascinating.”

Dancefloor-friendly video game remixes? | Ask MetaFilter
"I'm DJing a rave in a month or so, and the crowd I'll be playing to is much more of a gamer crowd than the average rave-going-crowd is. I'm going to throw in some game music remixes at some point, and I thought I'd ask for suggestions."
