random vignettes from a game-player's life

Just on for a few minutes to try to get rid of my motion sickness. Tim & Peter are round, and we've been playing Frequency, and while it's a lot of fun the visuals are making me dizzy. Even playing with no background the game's still really brightly coloured. Giddy...
