Geek Girls Are Pretty Much Awesome. I should know…

Night In The Woods: Living The Dream Of A College Dropout

I should know -I dropped out of college twice before I graduated in 2012.

The thing about dropping out is that sometimes it forces you to tune in, as that’s just about the only way to distract yourself from the mountain of negative thoughts and feelings about the future, about yourself, and about all that money you’re going to have to find a way to pay back.

On to this awesome-looking new game prospect on Kickstarter that inspired me to vent about my previous failures: you get to play a cat named Mae who’s dropped out of college and returned to her hometown, a failed mining community, and explore the dark side of things. Sounds like where I’m from, and how I responded to my own feelings of hopelessness when I thought I’d never escape.

Whether you can relate to all these things or not, just check out the review at Kotaku and I think you’ll agree; this game is going to be awesome.
