Introduction to EMO

Hey, all! Guess what. I was the type of kid that, when there was no one to turn to, I turned to music. And that’s something that most people can relate to. Some of us just happened to need it more than others and make a bigger deal out of it.

This game portal began thanks to music. More specifically, what got called EMO music. Because of the culture and style that emerged from it. It gradually expanded to cover more, but EMO was what brought it into existence. So, let's dedicate an article to it...

Emo's Coming Back 'Cause He's a Star

This just out! It has black, hot pink, emphasis on fashion and style, and EMO! I could NOT not have it here. I thought this place vibed the most with Avril Lavigne's The Best Damn Thing, but felt emo in da club might just be this place's anthem.

Suspense Until Spring...

Getting a few things ready...

Making Reusable Assets (Interface Graphics)

We’re getting closer! 2021 was about setting down the foundations for what will be a vast world that will continue to grow and evolve for many more years to come (blueprints and such). The wait will be worth it. 🤘🏻★

Making Reusable Assets (In-Game Options)

I missed this so much! Getting back to the making of games - from scratch. And that means I get to build from the ground up what the world of DarkSceneGames will be like. In order to do that, I like to have a few things set in place...

Style Recap

Finding skull-themed items at local stores that don’t specialize in this style after the trend died out was such a pleasant surprise.

But what has happened, really, all these years with style, between the closing and the reopening of DarkSceneGames?

Rewinding Mixtape, Vol. 1

While we’re still pumping life back into DarkSceneGames, do you want to go on a trip to the past, carried by music?
I put together a 'mixtape', including hits from the years 2008, 2009, and 2010.

Emo Is Not Dead?

I moved on with my life, or so I thought, and I’m just trying to do the “responsible” thing, be an “adult”, try and pass as “normal”. Because being emo was “just a phase”. But then I came across this YouTube channel and... Look, I was (am?) as sensitive and moody as emos come, so you can’t call me a poser (pfft, does anyone even use this term anymore?), but this is still hilarious.

Back from The Grave!

Guess who’s back from the grave! DarkSceneGames is!

Whether you’re an old member visiting in hopes to see us back, someone who never saw this place before but wandered in now upon playing any of our old games that are still scattered around the internet, or someone who doesn’t know any of it and is just here being like, “WTH is this?” You are all welcome and I’m glad to walk you through it.

Back at U!

After recovering DarkSceneGames’ address, earlier this year, I set up a contact form for feedback. And I was honestly so thrilled to receive messages despite how over a decade had gone by in our absence. Y’all, I was already fueled to bring this back, but you filled the tank.

Here are 5 of the first ones received. Much appreciated!
(Hanging them on the wall for inspiration and motivation!)
