I don’t own a gaming console of any kind, but I’m digging the trailer for this game, done in the style of 1930’s cartoons.

From the source: Studio MDHR, which developed the game, is aiming to launch later this year on Steam and Xbox One. It’s a great catch for Microsoft, which is trying to build a catalogue of unique and interesting games beyond the Call of Duty and Halo fare. The studio also hopes to release the game on the Sega Master System. Yes, the console that was released back in 1986. It would be the complete package, with a box, cartridge, and game manual.

The game follows the same style of early animation. Studio MDHR is taking the time to use actual cells and is inking by hand to create that classic effect. The music for the game is also live recorded Jazz, none of that MIDI stuff.

Any gamers out there? Would you want to play this?

Halloween Countdown: Novel Creations

Posted in Books, craft, geek, halloween, wish list with tags , , , , on October 23, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Novel Creations is an incredible Etsy store for the discerning literary geek. There’s a selection of classic horror for the Halloween season (or in my case, all year).

I have to get my hands on one of these…though not sure which I would choose. Perhaps this one:

Finally, nail art for nerd girls! I’m just posting the nebula series because they are my favorite. The creators use actual nebulae instead of artistic fabrications because they “didn’t want to piss Neil deGrasse Tyson off.” Bonus points to them! Other great nerd themes await us as well.

Periodic Cookies makes two glorious sugar cookie designs that caught my eye. Atomic particles and lab goodies!

I think I’d rather decorate a Christmas tree with these than eat them. But they would be the perfect snack to bring to a party of geeks (thinking of you, Matt & Steph!).

This is my favorite bike helmet of all time (too bad I’m not a bike kinda gal due to illness).

The artist can even paint using a color pallet of your choice and a phrenology chart custom to your personality.

Periodic TableWare is a fantastic new kickstarter that brings a little science to the table (literally).

Geek homes everywhere need these! Starting with this geeky blogger.

A mere six words nicely summarize my feelings about this project.

Harley Quinn Retro Style Apron

Posted in comics, craft, geek, home, retro with tags , , , , on June 14, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

I’ve posted about handmade retro aprons and movie monster aprons before. Now here’s one for you sexy comic geeks.

Harley Quinn Apron:

I’ve got the long blonde hair…I think I could pull off a convincing Ms. Quinn at the stove. However, I personally would be be hesitant to cook in something handmade and pricey.

If you’re not into comics, you could opt for the mildly unsettling Pee Wee Herman style:
