BLOCKEDis a very simple and minimal tiny-game I created using Bitsy, as a tribute to one of those miserable days where inspiration seems to fail us and one just wanders around, trying to grasp at something, getting increasingly frustrated by the realization that nothing that is done seems right or worthy of notice.
From creative block to a downspiral of self-doubt, anxiety and introspection, this little game aims to replicate a little bit of a, well too familiar, territory for all of those creatives who, more or less, frequently go through these situations.

Ilustração feita após o polémico “ban” por parte do Tumblr aos mamilos femininos (“female presenting nipples” nas suas próprias palavras) e à nudez em geral.

Illustration done after Tumblr’s controversial ban on “female presenting nipples” (by their own words) and nudity in general. It wouldn’t be so serious if it was just an isolated case, but the increasing censorship and aversion to depictions of female and male nudity, including artworks, on social media platforms is, at least, worrying.
