    Must Plays of 2014 – LISA

    by  • January 27, 2015 • 0 Comments

    LISA is a game of painful decisions. I’m not talking about the typical video game decision making either, where the morality is so painfully obvious it may as well be choosing between killing puppies or not killing puppies.

    I’m somewhere between frightened and excited when I think about editing Medicine Cabinet. Now that the three month waiting period is up and it’s time to work on turning this story into something readable, I’m going through a lot of different emotions. I really love the story I wrote when I think about it,...
