The Chango as the National Bird

 Hi folks!

In this last few days I have been experimenting and trying to learn the basics of Bitsy: a little editor for little games or worlds.

The Chango as the National Bird (or El chango como pájaro nacional in Spanish) is an essay written by Magali García Ramis; Writer, journalist and professor of journalism, she was born in 1946 in Santurce, Puerto Rico. She has a bachelor's degree in History from the University of Puerto Rico (1968) and a master's degree in Journalism Sciences from Columbia University, N.Y. (1969). She subsequently pursued doctoral studies at the Autonomous University of Mexico and at the Center for Advanced Studies of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean.

El chango como pájaro nacional is one of my favorite essay as it proposes in a very interesting and funny way the Chango (Mozambique, Machambo, Quiscalusnigerbrachypterus, Greater Antillean grackle) as the best candidate for the national bird of my country, Puerto Rico.


So, I designed using Bitsy a little "game"/"visual novel" that you as a Chango "fly thru the playas (beaches) of Puerto Rico as a Chango, learning why the Chango should be the Puerto Rican National Bird".

 Go thru this link to enjoy my little homage.

So what are you waiting for? Play it and leave a comment below.

Chrome//Knuckles: A Beat em' Up Cyberpunk RPG

 

Chrome//Knuckles is my submission for the One Page RPG Jam 2021.

As the title suggests, Chrome//Knuckles is a Cyberpunk themed RPG set "in a imminent future". The evil mega corp Yashinoki, rigged the elections for mayor of "the once prosperous Reef City". The city is now in chaos, commanded by the iron fist of Akuma Salinas. "Misery, hunger and crime reign" in Reef City. 

Who will overthrow the powerful Akuma Salinas? 

Go right now to Chrome//Knuckles page at itch.io, download the files, find some friends and hook your Cyberboard to your Datajack, because it's time to let Mr. Salinas know the power of the people is in their numbers!

¡Ha! Y por cierto Chrome//Knuckles también está disponible en español.
