Reposting my with the hashtag this time! โœจ

Like many others, I'm trying this place out given the recent Twitter news!

So, hi! I'm Ryan - better known as Toadsanime on Twitter (RIP my verification badge).

I work in as marketing director at Super Rare Games, where I also do some biz dev stuff + created the Mixtape, a physical compilation of !

I'm previously a games journo, a BAFTA Games judge, and am mostly known on for sharing ๐Ÿ‘‹

I have no problem with indie games emulating art styles of games they feel inspired by - there's nothing stolen here.

What I have a problem with is trying to pronounce it as 'misplaced' and not 'MySpace' with an L.

Mysplaced is extremely reminiscent of the recent Link's Awakening remake, but there may be a bit more to it than meets the eye.

It's also one of the contenders on this week's Audience Choice episode of Rogue Jam. You cโ€ฆ

I'm just going to leak it - I'm developing the new Silent Hill.

It'll be out 2024, playable only on a potato.

It will have Pyramid Head, but his head is now oval. He is called Oval Head.

Harry Mason is back and really into model trains but they're, like, spooky or something

Wonderful that as a gay man and a gamer, I now knowingly have to help fund a state that arrests and kills people for being gay if I want to play video games. Cheers for that, gaming executives.

By the end of the month, I will have personally signed 180+ games.

(just for Mixtapes, not including my help on our @SuperRareGames Originals publishing label)

That... is some sort of record, surely? ๐Ÿ˜…

If you remember the late 90s indie darling Dink Smallwood, we can be friends. โ™ฅ

This game influenced the likes of Baldur's Gate and Borderlands.

Imagine if someone gave the HD version a physical release in, say, an indie game compilation revealed on Friday. That'd be wild.

Shan't tweet it for anyone else attending, but I've just looked up My Chemical Romance's setlist from their first UK performance yesterday, and I'll be veryyy happy if my gig on Sunday is the same or similar ๐Ÿ˜

Unrelated: I'll have some big personal news on Friday, something that means a lot to me that I'll be literally begging you to share when it drops. ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š3๏ธโƒฃ
