Hello Pen Pals! This is a bonus letter just for you, to thank you for supporting us on Patreon. In this letter, we've each chosen to try out something that the other person recommended in a past letter—because what good are recommendations if you don't give them a try? We hope you like it!

We tried

🎮 Ikenfell

From Letter 57

Jill streamed the first hour of this game for me many months back. I really liked the vibes and had been listening to the soundtrack off and on since then, but it wasn’t until after her formal recommendation and a particularly anxiety-filled weekend that I decided to finally buy it! I blew through the game in a week—partially because I tend to auto-play battles when I am very sleepy, but mostly because it’s FUN. The story is lovely, the characters are excellent, it’s SO GAY, and I’m just excited for the future of games when something like this exists. Patrons, I will pay you to play this game, DM me for $10.


🎶 Samia’s The Baby

From Letter 58

I’ve never listened to Samia before, but I put on The Baby while I was working today and the vibes were incredible. I will not pretend to be a very discerning music critic—my opinions pretty much amount to either “I loved this the first time I listened to it” or “I loved it after listening to it 40 times.” That said, Summer is right about this album and if you like sad girl indie music as much as we both do, it’s definitely worth a listen.
