DigitallyDownloaded.net Newsletter - May 28, 2022
By Matt S - Editor-in-Chief • Issue #67 • View online
I’ve had the week from hell in terms of work outside of the gaming stuff I’ve done. There was one day this week where I started at 8am, and finished at 3am the next day. Capitalism, huh?
I don’t say this for sympathy (since the upshot of this is I basically don’t need to work for a month now - capitalism, huh!), but just to highlight why DDNet’s coverage was relatively thin this week. We did review two amazing games, and find time for some news coverage and the like besides. We’ll catch up on the rest next week.
Of course, there’s so much more to read through in this newsletter, too! All our buddies across the independent games press have created some incredible reviews and features for your reading pleasure, so be sure to check those out!
Have a great weekend, everyone. I’m off to have a nap.

Don't Forget To Grab The Dee Dee Zine!
We have an absolutely cracking Dee Dee Zine for your reading pleasure this month. We’re celebrating the one-year anniversary of the magazine, and so we’ve gone all-out to give you a bit of everything - anime, literature, games, history and more!
In this month’s magazine:
- 13 Sentinels as a masterpiece of narrative storytelling.
- Parasite Eve, the great Japanese horror novel and the video games that spawned from it.
- A introduction to game preservation via emulation.
- The history of Hanafuda: beautiful card game… but also a very seedy history.
- The most beautiful and philosophical anime about an apocalypse.
- So much more!
Sound good to you? By supporting the Dee Dee Zine, not only do you get a whole lot of art and culture reading for fans of Japan, but you support everything that we’re doing here at DDNet, and that will help us to grow yet further.
