Hi, I'm Christine Love! I write games with too many words in them about women and queerness and technology, and I believe strongly in the power of cuteness. You can read more about me here! And this is what I look like.

Playing with the Interstellar Selfie Station demo is maybe my new favourite thing.

Also that other head is Adam - I ain’t no Chimera.

WOW, CUTIES. (interstellarselfiestation.com)

A BRIEF ROUND-UP OF PEOPLE I’VE TALKED TO LATELY
In case you REALLY WANTED to hear the unpleasantly pitched drone of my voice, but weren’t able to see me in person on the weekend!

Jonathan Holmes came with me into the Interstellar Selfie Station photobooth at PAX East and I have been told by reliable sources that it is “adorable.”
I was on the LocaLAIse This! podcast, talking about the Korean and Japanese localizations of Analogue and Hate Plus and how much I hate money.
MOST IMPORTANTLY OF ALL, some random nerds invited me onto a podcast to talk about how much I love boobs and also Kill La Kill.

Good show, everyone! I think we all successfully managed to make PAX a little bit queerer and a whole lot cuter in our corner of the show floor!

I remembered I had this url sitting around so I guess it’s my doodle blog now. Relatedly, the return of my dumb retro *Mute thing.

The 4990s are basically the same thing as the 1990s anyway

Hey, I’m going to be at PAX East this year in the Indie MEGABOOTH! We’ll be showing off the INTERSTELLAR SELFIE STATION PHOTOBOOTH.

If you missed it, this is your big chance to get Interstellar Selfie Station-style STICKER PRINTS of you smooching someone inside a real honest-to-god photobooth! Didn’t get to print out your pixel portraits of yourself in 1997? HERE’S YOUR CHANCE AND ALSO NOW THEY’RE IN FOUR COLOURS. (The app for iOS/Android is not quite finished yet, but it will be soon!)

I will also be demoing Hate Plus, and selling whatever remaining Analogue stuff I happen to have sitting around. I don’t know when I’ll make more, so that’s also a big deal!

Not really nsfw, but I thought it looked pretty. c:

THIS IS COMPLETELY SINCERELY EXACTLY WHAT THE INTERSTELLAR SELFIE STATION WAS DESIGNED FOR.

I have an email problem

So if you follow me on Twitter at all, you have probably noticed that I have anxiety. My response to being overwhelmed by things is to just shut down and ignore them, which is… it’s a strategy that worked pretty okay back when I was in school. It doesn’t really work now.

I get a lot of emails a day, and frankly, I have historically been really bad at them. I would see an email, go “oh, shit, this requires a thoughtful response!”, flag it for later, then with every day that passed, think “oh, shit, now that it’s been so long, I need to give a response so thoughtful it makes the wait worth it!”, and then next thing I know I’m sitting on a giant pile of 100 unanswered messages from the past six months, a lot of them kinda important.

For the past month I have been trying an experiment wherein I use a piece of software—really, just a glorified todo list—to keep track of all my work and setting soft deadlines for everything. It has helped me a lot, and has managed to basically annihilate all of my email-related anxiety, which is… well, it’s really good mental health-wise. I would highly recommend it for anyone who has similar problems!

This is all to say: if I have let you down because of this ridiculous email anxiety, I’m deeply sorry. I got suddenly thrown into a situation where I had to deal with a lot more than I ever had in my life, but frankly, that is a shitty excuse. It is my responsibility to follow through on things I’ve committed to, and I know I have been really bad to a lot of people by failing to do that. I’m working very hard to fix that, so I hope you can accept my sincerest apologies.

I’ve gone through and caught up with as much as I can over the past month, but I know a lot has still slipped through the cracks. If you sent me something over a month ago expecting a response and I still haven’t gotten back to you, please, do send it again. I promise I will try to do better this time!
