One of the immutable laws of the code of heroes is that they usually need a mentor to help shape and mold them. Either to train them in the ancient technique of punch-fighting, instill in them a strong moral code (with gems such as “be responsible” - like, how else could Spider-Man have figured that out?), and generally teach them how to be the hero they’re destined to be.
Also, they’re usually old. And short. But, mostly, they’re wise. They’re figures to look up to and trust.
And they’ll usually die, because nothing motivates a hero like watching their teacher/father-figure die a vengeance-worthy death.
But now it’s time to pick - who’s the best mentor ever? Who taught their pupils the best? Who instilled the strongest values? Who….made the best waxing metaphor?
It’s up to you. Follow your heart, trust in yourself, and vote for the best mentor ever.

making this game means the world to me
OMORI is a surreal psychological horror RPGmaker game. You must travel between two worlds, both welcoming, both concealing the same secrets. Meet new (old) people, fight new (old) enemies, explore your own memories, and uncover some hidden truths along the way (although you wish you hadn’t.) When the time comes, you can only choose one.
OMORI is a character has been described as a “depressed otaku.”He started off as a character who lived on a blog, which lasted from December 2011 until March 2012.
OMOCAT always envisioned OMORI as a game; and with the help of some friends (and you), the OMORI video game can be brought to life.

Happy 25th Birthday, Game Boy ⊟
What a great system you were. This artwork from Eliran Cohen reminds me so much of my experience with the Game Boy, absolutely immersed in whatever I was playing, no matter where I was.
If you haven’t read it yet, USgamer published a wonderful article celebrating the Game Boy, which JC and I contributed to. Here’s a scrap I wrote for it:
My memories playing Game Boy remain vivid, and remembering them now, you couldn’t have them with a home console. Backtracking around Metroid II during a long, turbulent flight over the Pacific. Having my mind blown when I first started Final Fantasy Adventure in the back of my aunt’s Monte Carlo, when your hero gets thrown off the cliff. Jumping through Elec Man’s stage in Dr. Wily’s Revenge, in between eating chicken nuggets at a Chinese food restaurant while my mom gossiped with her friends.
I still return to Link’s Awakening every few years, spending an afternoon by a window. I’m always trying to recapture the days I’d explore Koholint Island, hiding under the dinner table, hidden so no one could bother me and break the immersion but peeking out just enough so the sun could still warm my skin. If I could still fit in them, I’d probably try playing games in a laundry hamper again, too.
Feel free to share your Game Boy memories and birthday wishes!SEE ALSO More handholding posts (our handheld gamer photo series)
