Hello!!  \o/

You can call me either Daro or Alannah. I'm an artist who makes comics and video games! I've been wanting to try making a neocities site to host a sort of art blog - both as an archive of my art and as a diary of thoughts and explorations I'm making! No social media sites I've found really do what I want when it comes to archiving my work outside of my portfolio, so I figure why not make what I want? Hmm as for other interests... I'm pretty into fishkeeping! Right now I only have one tank set up - a 10 gallon betta tank - but I also just started setting up a new 25 gallon I want to put honey gouramis and otocinclus in!

I found this forum while exploring around other neocities sites. I don't know much about programming other than a little bit of basic html taught to me in high school, so I'm excited to learn! I'm also excited to see what everyone else is up to here, since it seems like there are a lot of other people who make games! (I've participated in 2 game jams so far as an artist, you can see the resulting games here: https://wodaro.itch.io/)

Delighted to make your acquaintance!  :4u:

Hi Daro, welcome to the forum! :D

Oo, I secretly wanna make an online fish tank game, its been on my mind for a while !<o You right about social media sites, I think they are fine if you have a product to push; but personal sites are much better if you wanna step back and make something slower, more lasting and peaceful.

Cool art and games! I tried CHONDRIATIC but I sorta got stuck in the mirror.. anyway it has a vibe! I look forward to hearing more about your work! Whats your biggest inspiration?

Ah yes the mirror glitch is quite common >.< If you're curious someone made a video on youtube going thru both of the endings:


Ooh yes I've actually been looking into 3D modelling because I want to make cute lil low-poly models of fish... I just think they're so cute!! I would love to make a game that focuses on marine life. Hmm for inspirations... video-game wise We Know The Devil (https://pillowfight.itch.io/we-know-the-devil) is my #1 for sure. I was 17 when it came out and it really was earth-shattering stuff for teenage me growing up as a closeted lesbian in a Baptist household. Other games I really love are Night in The Woods, Disco Elysium, and NieR: Automata. For comics I'm really inspired by the work of Michael DeForge, Inio Asano, and Emily Carroll. Also a billion little webcomics I read as a teen lol (Homestuck, Paranatural, Prague Race, etc.) Also anime of course (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Hunter x Hunter, Perfect Blue, The Tatami Galaxy, Kaiba, etc.) I tend to be drawn to stories with a lot of introspection! Especially ones that deal with religion/faith and queer themes. I've also been really into body horror lately.

Thank you!!  :-*

Your site is really stylish btw! I love it! I haven't explored all of it yet, but I like the quote section in your scrapbook. I also tend to collect quotes from things I like, so maybe I'll put some of them on my site somewhere too! I also love you including zines thru the EZMReader, I was aware of that tool but never thought to embed it in my website.

Thanks so much!

It's a nice tool, I found out about it through the site Wasteland Imperiatrix. Thanks to that I found out itch.io is a big hub for zines; I had previously thought it was just used to host indie games such as yours!

How fortunate. Another Revolutionary Girl Utena fan. I think we will be fast friends, considering your interests. I look forward to learning this stuff with you, Daro!
