A game I like, La Mulana, kickstarted a sequel, where one of the awards was to have your face turned into a statue. They just posted an updated about it, which included: “If you’d like to become a giant stone face, we suggest taking your photos with lighting coming more from the bottom up”, and other things like “Just keep in mind that if you send us weird faces, we’ll stick your face in weird places." Cute.
But then it says “Regarding hairstyles, we just want you to know that styles like dreadlocks and afros will be hard for us to work with. Please just try to see things from our perspective. As long as you can see your face though, we’ll work around the hair and give you an interesting headpiece in place of your ‘do." Which is real fucking specific about what kind of hairstyle is hard for them. Not sure why dreadlocks would be harder than long hair.
So, anyway, long story short, now I want to send them more money and grow an afro, because I want an awesome afro statue in their Indiana Jones game and I think the world would be better off for it.
