it's the future, meaning you can watch videos Right Here on smudgebap.com!
in may 2023 i discovered & researched a game called "THE SEVEN COLORS: LEGEND OF PSY-S CITY". i played it, too, but i spent a lot longer researching it in preparation for this video project. i went over different games developed by nana on-sha, my experiences with japanese pop music, and the tragedy of an artist abandoning their earlier work. i wanted it to be short but because of the amount of linked subjects to the main topic it resulted in about a solid hour. oops!
for my first scripted video ever i decided to document my experience playing KINGDOM HEARTS for the first time, going over my opinions & thoughts step-by-step in an attempt to understand the game, why people like it, and why it's... Like That. part of my understanding included researching as much as i could about the game's development, its place in the early 2000s console market and realizing that maybe games don't need to be objectively good, or even fun, to still be enjoyable.
