Hey all, bit different post here today. As some of you may or may not know, April 2nd is International Autism Awareness Day. I’m here just to say a couple of things about Autism and bullying, both online and in the real world. First off, I just wanted to say thank you to all of those with Autism for being such amazing people. Over the last several years, I’ve volunteered at numerous programs for Autistic children and it has really been life-changing. The kids I’ve worked with have all been incredibly wonderful and I’m truly glad I was able to meet and talk to them. However, some of the kids told me stories of things that had happened at school. Being teased about something they had no control over, being laughed at, picked on. Bullying is something we never really think about until the victims are right there in front of us. I know “Cyber-Bullying” is something that some people may think of as a joke, but the actions of the bully can be just as bad, if not worse when done over the internet. This is why, on April 2nd, and every day following, I’m asking that you help take a stand against bullying. It can even be as simple as asking someone how their day is going. Some people feel so alone when they’ve been bullied for so long, a bit of friendly contact can completely turn their day around.
Here on Indiesquish, we strive to make sure the players we cater to are taken care of. Our servers will always be a safe and friendly place for anyone to play on, no matter what they may be going through.
A quick post to let you know about an upcoming game from Simutronics called Dragons of Elanthia. It sounds fun;
