I made a computer game! It is about finding your place in society and working hard to keep it! Works better in Chrome but I didn’t really debug it that well or anything, so who knows?
Like there’s a song about the thorax and a song about how the wings work, and like what it means to only live for an hour and to mostly need to eat during that time. Every fact included and musically correct. I feel like this is where the teen market is going.

Is it possible that this was you, once, that you were here, once, in this car, huddled six feet in the back seat wishing to disappear, focusing on the transit of meat into your throat so you won’t have to feel human? That here you were, every night, ordering off the same menu? That this place exists in the same universe, same city, where batwing girls lurch and vampire musicians in black glasses bend notes into death blues?
