Blue Lacuna : let your imagination lead you to another world…

Hello fellow readers,

I’m still surprised my blog has as many visitors. I wonder why, since I haven’t made a post for 3 months… But do not worry, for I am not dead (I wouldn’t be writing this article now otherwise, right?). I just had quite a lot to deal with work which was becoming pretty intense, as well as some odd… events happening in real life (although not exactly, but here is not the place to talk about this).

As for now, I would like to make you discover a new game I found earlier rotting on my hard disk drive : Blue Lacuna.

This is the story of a Wayfarer, a person able to travel through dimensions. However, Wayfarers cannot control neither when, nor where they travel. In this game, you have to answer a Call, which is basically an inner feeling that another Wayfarer in a different dimension needs help. Yet, as you arrive in this new world, mysterious events start to unfold…

You can discover this story here. Hope you’ll enjoy it !

Mushishi

Hello occasional followers!

Today, I shall tell you about an anime I discovered some years ago, called Mushishi.

In this world, the world is filled by little, insect-like, eerie elemental entities called Mushi. Several subspecies of Mushi exist, and each of them has a special way to interact with reality : some give life to dreams, others strongly affect your senses… However, because of their nature and properties, such organisms often create trouble with humans. And that’s why Ginko, a Mushi-shi (litterally master of Mushi), exists : to solve such problems.

As for the anime itself… ┬áIt is a masterpiece. The graphics are really nice, and there are some pretty special effects, and the music is quite good too… but both work together to provide you the best anime experience you could get. Honestly, I feel like each episode is like a dream; and after each of them, my brother feels like he’s been watching a film! The story is cute, quite peaceful and calm, but still interesting. The whole atmosphere is very natural : our Mushi-shi’s adventures make him wander through the rural side of Japan, and landscapes there are as miscellaneous as they are gorgeous: from snow-covered mountains to deep, ancient and mysterious forests… And as you watch more and more episodes you’ll be interested in these eerie little beings that Mushi are : each species has scarily wonderful powers, and humans who live near are always more or less affected…

So… would you be an occasionnal dreamer, I really advise you to watch this anime. Trust me, you won’t waste your time, and you’ll want more after you have watched the first episode.
And if you’re not yet convinced, I hope the opening will make you do the first move!


Another lost comic : Copper

Hiya!

So today, I’m going to tell you a bit about a webcomic I discovered some years ago. It’s quite different from all the other ones you might know, though, since it’s not updated much…

This is about a boy, Copper, and his dog, Fred, who experience various adventures in various brightly-coloured, gorgeous worlds. The atmosphere is really wonderful : colours are everywhere, it’s very well drawn and you quickly get absorbed by the whole universe. The characters are nice, and are original enough for you to get to like them. As for the story…

The story is what makes Copper different from any other comic. Here, there’s no monster to kill/bad guy to defeat/romantic love story to follow… Every comic strip is individual, so you can read any of these in any order, it doesn’t matter that much. However… Each one is some kind of little life lesson. There is always something to learn and remember, and the wonderful way it is presented makes it even easier. No complicated plot at all, but instead amazing places full of poetry and dreams…

The comic isn’t perfect, though. It really lacks updates, so once you’re done with all the released comics, you can get ready to wait for a while before having to check again. But considering the amount of work behind each strip and its gorgeous results, I think it is easily forgivable…

Finally, despite its scarce updates, Copper is definitely a nice webcomic to check, not only for philosophers, but also for experienced web drifters questing for a some quiet place to space out…

Enter the world of Copper, and get ready for some enjoyable webdreaming !

PS : the author has also made some other nice pieces of artwork… You should have a glance at his place.
