May the forest be with you
Hello dear friends! It’s time for a new theme for Band of Bloggers! Last month’s theme of Dragons went remarkably well. We had some phenomenal blogs written as a result and I couldn’t be more excited to see where Band of Bloggers goes in the future! Of course, it’s still not too late to write about last month’s theme as well.
As I pondered what our theme might be for May, I considered many things. I thought about Spring and how it makes me actually want to go outdoors for once (then I go outdoors and I’m allergic to everything). I thought of trees, greenery and fresh air. I envisioned going for: A Walk in the Woods.
I really like the phrase “A Walk in the Woods.” I find it evocative, I hope you do as well! Maybe this similarly titled piece of music, from Halo, will give you some inspiration.
“What does this mean to me?” you ask. I would respond, “What does it mean to you?”
Perhaps you think of a game that takes place inside of a forest, or possibly just a particular forest level within a game. Write about that game. Maybe your mind is drawn specifically to the “walk” portion of the theme. Write about a walking simulator. The world is your burrito!
The idea is just to use this as a jumping-off point. Find a game that relates (no matter how remotely) to this theme and write about it. It would be great if you discover a new game and play it for the first time, but that is by no means a requirement.
Write about a game you once loved or even about how much you hate forest levels in games! Go (tree) nuts! When you’ve written your blog, be sure to throw “Band of Bloggers” in the title, or “BoB” if you want to shorten it, and we’ll have a lovely month discussing these games together!
