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.

The real Pale Bride.

Photoset

dr-villain:

It’s been nearly a year since I first made this, and nearly half a year since I sent these pictures, complete with an embarrassingly gushy fan-email, to Christine Love. I’m only now getting the courage to post these pictures online. This is my *Mute cosplay from Katsucon and Otakon 2013. In retrospect, I just wish I’d looked a little more tsundere for my pictures, but this was also my first formal photoshoot, and I was just so excited to be doing it that I couldn’t stop grinning.

For my sister and I, who are of mixed Korean descent, the Analogue series has always held a special place in our hearts. Together, we’ve spent years piecing together what stories of our heritage we can gather from photos, letters, and family rumors. The Pale Bride’s story hit extra close for us, as our own great grandma was disowned by her family after she immigrated to the US to escape an arranged marriage and some political involvement that turned dangerous. 

Please, if you are reading this and haven’t played Analogue yet, you owe it to yourself to try it. There’s more good things about the series than I have words to express. Do it for the cake. Cake and girl love. :)

WOW

So, Hate Plus is on sale for the first time! Both Analogue and the Hateful Days pair are 50% off right now, and if you just want Hate Plus, it’s 33% off. (It’ll be the same price at Christmas, so this is the cheapest they’ll be for a while.)

Just so you know!

So if for some reason you’ve managed to completely miss out on the story of the Mugunghwa, you can now get the whole thing together! The Hateful Days pair is $20 on Steam, and includes both Analogue and Hate Plus, as well as the soundtracks to both.

♡ Please, look forward to your hateful days~! ♡

I have two really big announcements today!

I’ve wanted to do an iOS release for a while, but haven’t really had a way to make it work. Fortunately, awesome local developers Golden Gear Games know a lot more about that sort of thing than I do, and are working on a port! I am really friggin’ excited about this, ‘cause with a little bit of reworking, I think it’s totally the sort of game that makes sense to have a portable version of.

Right now there’s no release date, but Analogue will be out on iOS devices later this year.

ALSO: Analogue is coming to Japan! It’s being translated by PLAYISM, it will be coming out later this year on PC (and iOS sometime in the future), but for now, I’ll have a fully playable demo of it on display at Tokyo Game Show this weekend! Please look forward to it~

Hate Plus, the sequel to Analogue: A Hate Story, is now available on Steam for $10.

A dark visual novel about transhumanism, cosplay, cake-baking, and the slow patriarchal erosion of freedoms taken for granted.

Here’s the disclaimer: I would not go to PAX given the option not to, because PAX is run by a sexist transphobic jerk who repeatedly goes out of his way to make queer people/women uncomfortable. It’s not a great place to be, so you probably don’t want to be there, if you can afford not to be. (If you do go, I won’t judge! I get it, believe me. It is the largest show of its type in North America, and is kinda super-important for getting stuff in front of a general audience. I just wouldn’t, given the choice.)

That said, despite the best efforts of the convention’s organizers to make me feel unwelcome, I’m begrudgingly excited to announce that I’m going to be part of the Indie MEGABOOTH this year! I’m going to be in the company of a lot of really awesome games, and is run by some absolutely wonderful, super-welcoming people. I will be showing off Hate Plus there, alongside basically some of my favourite developers ever.

I’ll also be selling some low-key goodies, so if you wanted one of the remaining copies of the Analogue Deluxe Edition or Hate Plus pins, I will have those. If you are there, please come by and say hi! It will make me feel better about all the other terrible shit, believe me! ♡

I drew a TsunderAI. You know….she’s an AI, but she’s a tsundere? Hahaha…ha…ha…..
*Mute, character from the visual novel Analogue: A Hate Story. Korean names/words confuse me so much more than Japanese ones do.

OH GOSH THAT’S CUTE.
