Not sure yet where all this is goin'. Felt like I needed to start posting. The whole Red pill, Blue pill was inspired by the Matrix. Representing the choice between taking either the "blue pill" and remaining in a blissful state that is comfortable, and entertaining but doesn't lead anywhere OR taking the "red pill" (different project) that reveals the unpleasant truth, that the good things that are really worth spending your time on, require this tedious process called work to be done.
Or are they? Maybe there is something wrong with me or my generation but some of the experiences I've had in video games are just as vivid and bring back just as good of a memory as ones from the "real world". I know, right. Weird. Eyebrows at ease.
Being obsessed with aesthetics and photography, this doesn't get turned off when in the blue pill realm. I often find myself taking screenshots, and photos, in-game. The environments, the moods, and the stories are great to experience. Memories in the making, are just as enjoyable as in the red pill environment.
So the idea is to update this entry with stills and videos from "blue pill" environments. There is a club (that I'm not part of) that can enjoy and experience such a broad spectrum of stories, environments and experiences in real life. Videogames bring that barrier down and then some. Exploring space, planets, different eras, perspectives, etc. You might say that video games are fake. Well, based on what I see people create with just Unreal Engine & Quixel tools, the level of realism, even for a trained eye. At this point, I don't exclude our "real world" also being just another simulation within a simulation. So here goes.
The first image above is from Robert Space Industries - Star Citizen. It doubled as a good excuse to blow the dust off photoshop and tweak the image a bit. Wanted to wait for the sunset, but it was taking way too long on this particular rock. This frame was inspired by a 3D artist's piece that you can check out over here. Csaba FTW. :)
For me this game falls into the milestone category. It is up there with Golden Axe, Prehistoric, Command & Conquer, Diablo, Starcraft, GTA.
Here is a referral code for Robert Space Industries, Star Citizen. You can read about the benefits of using it on this screenshot.
