Friend Defense by Lydia Neon

Friend Defense is a tower defense game centered around the circle of friends and supportive acquaintances I’ve made over the last two years, particularly the last few months. It’s got a definite slant toward those I interact with on twitter. I tried not to censor by “is this person actually a friend, or just someone I know, or a friendly acquaintance, or something else?” because even for those who aren’t friends in the traditional sense, I tried to acknowledge that even non-specific good will can have an impact.

<3 each and every one of you. You’ve done your part to make the last couple years amazing.

Given there’s such a wide net being cast for who is being included, please don’t take not being listed as commentary on how close of a friend you are! There’s a sharp bias in favor of a very narrow group: people I’ve interacted with on Twitter in the last 24 hours. I also selectively didn’t include some folks who I suspected wouldn’t have wanted to be included. I tended not to use FB pictures, preferring avatars used on Twitter, simply for the matter of only wanting to share peoples’ faces if they have put them out there. So if we only talk on FB, that’s probably why as well. There’s already so many I know I left off. Jenna, Ozy, Thorin, Jen, Nat, Zoe, Avory, Susan, the AV collective, Claire, Tess, Monica, this list would never end!  <3 <3 <3
