New to NiGHTS

06 November 2011 - 07:23 PM

Hello~! You can call me Sundial. It's sort of a temporary name though. I like to draw, though I'm not the greatest at it and can do better if I tried harder. You'll find my scribblings on here eventually. Writing not so much, but I do like to write about headcanons and make character profiles I'll never use. I'm also a huge entomology nut and absolutely love learning about bugs and arachnids.

I'll be honest, I suppose I'm not really new to NiGHTS. I played the heck out of that pinball game in Sonic Adventure DX when it came out, but I never really thought about it other than it was referencing another game of theirs. And you're all probably going to yell at me for this, but I had Journey of Dreams hidden away for years and just got around to playing it last week. I was a little afraid of playing it! I'd heard NiD was a good game and, despite not having nostalgia-goggles of my own for the original, I wasn't sure it would live up to it.

My mind works strangely, I know.

But I brave'd up, played JoD, and had this really stupid gleeful look on my face for an entire day. Apparently happiness (or crack) comes in the shape of purple dream jesters too! I'm not sure what's drawing me to the game, I guess it's just so unique and colorful and fun. The thought of a dream world is fun to think about too, but it makes me wonder just how messed up my Nightopias would look like..

Anyway, now I'm happily addicted to absorbing all the information I can about the NiGHTS world! My next step is figuring out a way to play NiD so I can say I've played both. And.. I've already got some ideas for a fanmaren (I've figured out that fancharacters are my go-to when I have really bad artblocks) that won't leave my head alone unless I get it all fleshed out. whoops

EDIT: WHOA where did my icon come from, I didn't upload anything yet! Does anyone else see that?
