gp32 from insani emailed me noting that the signs from Interlude aren’t quite Korean. You could make the case if you sliced up the glyphs the proper way, but that would be the same way as taking a child’s scribble, hacking it up a certain way, and calling it kanji.

Yep, it’s getting colder, and the precipitation is paying a visit to my house. Rain comes down like drops of water from the sky coerced by the gentle pull of gravity. Falling. Falling. Falling.
