Three favourite Web comics on Webtoon

Hello fam! I know this post might not be the usual type of post I put up. However my life has been such a mess I needed something to unwind with, and without putting any effort in to it.

So I discovered Webtoon, which is a free app in the app store so you can get your hands on it easily.

My discover wasn’t the app itself, even though I was pretty surprised finding it, it was what I have found in it.

I found three comics on Webtoon that may help you unwind or just the distract you from your current problem so you could think straight afterwards. It does help if you wanna see things more clearly.

Side note : your mental health matters so don’t forget to relax in between situations. It is hard but possible.

This post might contain spoilers however I try to be as spoiler-free as possible.

So let’s continue… Shall we?

Lore Olympus: is a Web comic played in the Greek mythology. However there’s a twist. They are in today’s fashion (aka 21st century clothing) whereas the humans (mortals) are in still in early centuries (propably before Christ).

The artist chose one of the best legend to put in the main focus – in my opinion – which is the relationship between Hades and Persephone. I have to tell you this futuristic twist on their clothes and objects are pretty cool and the art style is pretty dope too. I recommend you to read it or at least give it a chance.

It is a romantic type of comic, which I am not really into usually, however this novel influenced me to look around a bit further.

This led me to…

Devil Is A Handsome Man : is also a romantic novel however it is full of mysteries and unclear scenes that keeps you there because you wanna know what exactly happened.

However, at first, I thought it was one of many web comics… But I refused to stop reading so I kept reading.. And thank god I did because it became so exciting after chapter 5 or 4 so I just couldn’t stop I finished this comic within a day (just like the previous comic).

It is also in the romance category however I think it also should be classed as fantasy, mystery or detective category because there are a lot of dots to connect.

If you a person who likes strong female characters as a main character I recommend this for you. Our main character, Xo – short for Xolia – is trying to find out who she really is and who exactly was she.

After this I wanted something different, no too much but different enough to not finish it within a day…

… And I found…

Love Advice from The Great Duke of Hell

I know this is a mouthful but this one leans into more of fantasy and comedy category. It is still romantic but in a different way.

It is a notice me sempai situation but it’s a guy “chasing” after his crush. Our main character is into occult for this reason and one day he successfully summons the Great Duke of Hell, which I can tell, not many mortals are capable of.

Without going into much detail and spoiling it for you (the title is enough spoiler imo), there are going to be scenes where you may feel awkward, or find it funny or just shake your head. It’s not exactly a comedy piece but I’ll admit it can be funny at times.

I love Web comics because I know it is hard drawing digitally and looking at the different between a newer chapter and an older chapter, seeing how much their art style improved over making the chapters feels me with joy and it is fascinating to see.

These people have a particular style that also pulled me in on reading there work. For me, it takes more than just a great art style to pull me in on the story. You won’t regret reading these however these are not for everyone.

Note: I am not sponsored by any of these artist who created these comics. Nor is Webtoon.

Mobile phone games you should try- with caution

Most people nowadays have at least one or two games on their phone.

Mobile phone games can be relaxing or annoying to the point you get frustrated. I collected some games which might not be new to you or you might have heard of them before. This list will be updated with a few more games so I apologise if it’s not long enough yet.

Before I continue, I would like to state that as much as games are fun, your priorities should come first.

I used to play a lot with this game and I am really fond of it too. Homescapes is about renovating and restoring an old mansion our main character, Austin, grew up in. This game is a single player but if you are online you can enter tournaments which can give you prizes, and you also get daily prizes, which are boosters. To restore the mansion you need to complete tasks, to compete a task you need stars. The way you get a star by playing a mini game, which is similar to Candy Crush, and you need to make matches of similar items.

You need to get trough different levels and the difficulty of the level always changes. You can easily get through the levels by using boosters. If you loose on the level you loose a life out of five lives.

It is a neat game if you turn away from the “pay to win” aspect of this game. Regardless of the daily rewards and the tourney prizes you won’t always be able to get through the stage without boosters, unless you try very hard. I needed to do a level 10 times before I beat the level…

Badland: is a cute adventure mobile phone game that is also available for Xbox and PlayStation 4 and other platforms as well. This is a single player and a multiplayer game in one.

I used to own this game too and I loved it and it is pretty straight forward game.

If you played Ori and The Blind Forest then I think you would love this game too because Badland has a foresty background to it.

There are different levels you need to complete, however some of the levels are locked and you can only unlock it if you buy certain levels. They’re not that expensive to buy though.

I used to play this game a lot but I am not up to date with the changes within the app.

My little Pony: OK you might have heard of this game. Yes you can laugh all you want but this game is still cute. If you didn’t know The My Little Pony Friendship is Magic is based on the animated My Little Pony series developed by Gameloft for iOS and Android devices.

This is a single player game with multiplayer interactions. The difference between this game and the previous one is you can only get prizes by leveling up. Obviously you still will get competitions and fulfilling tasks will also lend you rewards as well as the daily game called Balloon Pop which I think you can count as a daily reward but you won’t get it unless you pop the balloons.

This game is the most enjoyable for me is because 1, it’s cute 2, doesn’t take long to level up 3, it’s about ponies.

As much as I love these free to download games there are a few cons of these.

The other side of the industry

Micro-transactions are one of the few things I dislike about these… Well of course they need to make money somehow but then it is not a AAA game on the Xbox and I don’t like the thought of my hard earned money landing into an already rich coperation’s pocket.

I wouldn’t be fussed about it if the animators had better conditions to work in.

In the eyes of the corporation, these people are disposable. They are just bodies, they can be replaced by another body. These companies will do anything to keep their shareholders happy.

I’m not saying that you can’t buy some of the bundles you want in your game, because I have done that before, but as soon as I knew the things I just mentioned I felt a bit bitter about spending my money on any of these games.

Here are some useful links you can read too. 👇🏻

Dark side of working in the video game industry: 100-hour weeks and on-the-spot sackings

76% of game developers still labor under crunch conditions

Mental health and physical health of the developers are also important, not just satisfying the greedy shareholders.

How would YOU feel if you had to work in conditions like that?

Well… This post turned dark quite quickly. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Shadows of the Past

This is going to be a series of life experiences that affected the way I am today. These stories are here to show how much certain events can effect person’s life especially if the person is a child.

I am not a perfect mum nor preaching to be perfect in ever aspect of your lives but there are certain things I wanna talk about.

First off a story. When I was in preschool I had a pretty terrible experience because I couldn’t tie my shoe laces when I was about five… There was a certain preschool teacher who made my life hell because of it.

Before anyone start saying “man up” or “it is the past”. Trust me I know. Everyone has their childhood traumas and it is something either needs to be solved or talked about. Mine cannot be solved but it can be talked about.

This particular experience really scared me because I was humiliated in front of everyone there and got smacked on my hand for not being able to tie someone’s apron. I cried like a baby and I truly felt worthless. By the way I was never the favourite of any of the preschool teachers because my family didn’t have much cash to spare for some “tip” for the teachers there.

Looking back as an adult it might not be a big of a deal but if you have certain experiences carved into your memory like I do then you do understand that it is something you will carry the rest of your life. As a child it did have an impact on how my confidence developed – aka very poorly.

Then I realised real confidence comes from experience not compliments.

I learned to “properly” tie my shoes and aprons when I was about 8-10 years old. Before that everytime I tied something I got told it was not how it is done. I did them my own “special” way. Instead of doing a traditional granny knot what I did was folding the two ends of my shoe laces and made them in to a “bunny ear” looped them the way you would with a granny knot and then pulled it tight.

I might just record it for you if you don’t get what I mean.

Anyway, everytime I did it that way I had to start again and again until they decided I wasn’t worth doing it so might as well just stop asking me.

So everytime I started a new thing as a teen I just backed off doing it because it felt like I wouldn’t be able to do it. Thanks to this I missed a lot of opportunities too.

As a parent I try not lose my patience when it comes to my son because it will affect him later on.

The purpose of this article is to make you realise that there are things you cannot particularly change but you don’t need to pass it on your child or on the people around you.
