“ZEAL” is a label on Medium that has been showing a lot of promise as a source for interesting writing on unusual topics. I covered an article it promoted once before, and I’m talking about another one today.
The Nintendo DS was an utterly fascinating handheld that had an astoundingly large library that I believe has untapped potential for a lot of forgotten hidden gems that got lost in the shuffle. The subject of the article I’m talking about here is Princess Debut, a rhythm game with an undeniable femininity baked into its very design. Alex Roberts uses Princess Debut as a case study to make an excellent case for this not only being an aesthetic decision, but an entire design ethos. It’s something I had never really considered before, but this article provoked a lot of thought in me, which is the sign of quality writing.
