    Post Fashionably late!

    I forgot to post an introduction, so I guess you could refer to this post as fashionably late.

    I am not really a cartographer, per say, though I do find geology quite fascinating. My main claim to fame is in Web development because that is my current major in college while performing computer repair for income. Once I get my Bachelors, I intend to return to school and work towards a PhD in astrophysics. Someday, my hope is to be a part of the mission land humans on Mars.

    Aside from computers, I thrive on entertainment such as television shows, movies, and music. My favorites include The Mentalist, Universe, House (although it is over, now), White Collar, and a show called Mayday. I love documentaries with a science undertone like "How the Earth was Made" and "Nova." My movie selection contains an expansive variety of genres, but I think my favorite would have to be science fiction/fantasy. I am a sucker for a good disaster flick, but I have yet to find one that doesn't completely cast aside the laws of physics.

    One of my latest obsessions is any "escape the room" game. I also love RPGs, but I have high standards for the game masters, desiring one who is meticulous, realistic in his or her story-telling, and reliable. I have GMed a few campaigns myself, but currently I don't have the time to invest in a decent campaign. Perhaps, I will start one after I finish my Bachelors (and before I start my PhD).

    Well, I guess that's enough info.

    Welcome,

    Did you do that escape the room one by that japanese animator with the cini camera running near the end ? If not then ill try to dig out the link. Took me a while to figure that one out but it was so well done. If you have any links to more then do post. I haven't seen any of late.

    edit - ahh it was crimson room - apparently very popular one.

    My favorites, so far, are the Flopad adventures and the speed escape series. The best ones are truly interactive, meaning that clicking on something yields a message that gives you a "sort-of" clue (Ex: This nut is really rusted. I need to find a way to lubricate it). Last night, I played a fairly challenging one called "Escape the Bomb." I can't tell you how many times I blew up!

    And there is more than one way to beat it, I am told.

    Here is a great site that has a new escape game every day.

    Whatever you do, don't try "The House." There's no "escape" part of that escape game!
