By Lino and translated by Maia Sefton. Do you need a cape, tights, red underwear and a sigil on your chest to be a superhero?

Translated by Maia Sefton The witch hunts during the Renaissance led to around 100 000 executions in Europe, the victim being mostly old, poor rural women.

TACK N°6 – SUMMER IS CALLING : Sea of Solitude: the sea, fear, acceptance and surfacing it’s conditions.
Personally I’m not a big fan of summer, I find that this season is just a large amount of time where people force themselves to complete meaningless and futile tasks under the pretext that it’s to get us out of our comfort zones. This idea is not necessarily contemptible, but personally summer has always taken the form of a trip… Poursuivre la lecture de TACK N°6 – SUMMER IS CALLING : Sea of Solitude: the sea, fear, acceptance and surfacing it’s conditions.

In cinema but also in the world of art where it is especially difficult to associate the artist with the amount of work that goes into a piece.

TACK N°4 – NOSTALGIA : Embrace the old way or the new one ? Game design being put to the test by nostalgia.
Which games age the best ? Does the remake of an old game or the revival of a worn out genre necessarily need to be accompanied by a change in the game play mechanics or should they be left as they were to better embrace the return to the past.
