Toldain Talks

Because reading me sure beats working!


Toldain started as an Everquest character. I've played him in EQ2, WoW, Vanguard, LOTRO, and Zork Online. And then EVE Online, where I'm 3 million years old, rather than my usual 3000. Currently I'm mostly playing DDO. But I still have fabulous red hair. In RL, I am a software developer who has worked on networked games, but not MMORPGS.

Games As Art: The Marriage and The Divorce

Let's beat the "games are art" horse just a little more, shall we?

First, there's The Marriage, by Rod Humble. It's a few years old, it seems. Play it for yourself, I'm not going to spoil it. The game seems to work just fine on my MacBook Pro under Wine, by the way.

Then there's My Divorce, by Brett Douville, which is a response to The Marriage. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to work under Wine.

I recommend you play the games for a bit first, then read the commentaries provided by Humble and Douville.
