How to be Happy-

Here's 11 practical tactics for increasing your happiness, that you can use regardless of what's happening in your life. I packed a lot of information into this one, because I wanted to provide a great source for you to find a number of different techniques for happiness, all in the same place. I also tried to include a lot of the psychology behind it, so you can use that as well and understand why these things work the way they do and give you a foundation to build off of.

I'm not sure that there's any skill more worthwhile than learning to be happier. We can all really learn something from the Happy Piranha!

The Millennial King-

Ari Bach, friend of the site and creator of The Snail Factory, has released a new book called The Millennial King. Written to be a myth for modern times, it's an extremely funny and inspirational medieval fantasy tale. But it's also more than that, it's both scathing social satire and commentary, that explores many of the widespread pessimistic attitudes towards the younger generations in our society. It's designed to be a hero story for a generation that has never had these types of heroes to represent them. It addresses issues such as finding one's purpose and place in the world, and coming into one's own. It's very imaginative, poignant and ultimately satisfying. A quest to discover what is worth questing after.

If you enjoy the kind of humor that is featured on Ari's popular Tumblr blog Facts I Just Made Up, you should definitely check out The Millennial King. Ari Bach is also the author of the Valhalla trilogy, an epic action/science fiction series.

10th Anniversary-

10 years ago today was the official launch of Quite amazing actually. A lot has changed with the Internet and even the site since then. We've grown, we've created and accumulated new content and we've improved our villainous skills.

And since that first day back in October 2006, we have gained a better perspective of who we are and what we do. We've refined our approach quite a bit. And of course we fully intend to continue to spread our dark tentacles out into the Internet and hopefully culture in general. And we intend to have fun.

This year saw a very meaningful achievement for us. We released our first game on Steam. Now that Twisty's Asylum Escapades has been unleashed on to a larger audience, we hope that it will make an impact, and you can be sure that Reptile Zoo is coming up next.

In one of the very first posts on Twisted Jenius, an Evil Rants called "Why Villainy?", I ended it by saying "But whether you find my opinions good or bad is irrelevant, as long as they're interesting." I have a feeling that things are about to get very interesting indeed! So as a surreal, dimly lit dawn rises on another decade of Twisted Jenius, we hope that you will tune in as we continue our sinister journey.

In his book "How to be a Villain", Neil Zawacki says regarding the dictionary the definition of evil- "But isn't there more to it than that? Yes, what the dictionary cleverly leaves is for an elect few to know: Evil is fun". So for this coming decade, let's have some fun. After all, what else is entertainment about?

Twisty is being unleashed on Steam!-

The time has come for Twisty's Asylum Escapades to break out and be unleashed on the Steam store. For anyone who's been paying attention to what we've been up to at Twisted Jenius, we've spent the last year remastering the game, improving and completely overhauling all of the graphics, and adding new areas and new content to get it ready for a wider audience. And today it's finally going to be available on Steam.

The inclusion of our first game on the Steam platform is a very big and important step for us as game developers. It's the first time many people are going to see our villainous work. And indeed a lot of work went into this fiendish project over the years, and we can't wait to see the results! So go check it out and have some fun playing as everyone's favorite a giant floating brain with teeth!

Dark Musings are Back!-

As we begin the final leg of remastering our oddly compelling video game Twisty's Asylum Escapades for its upcoming Steam release, we are going to be bringing you another batch of Twisted Jenius's Dark Musings; our sinister and cynical series of darkly comedic ideas and observations about the world, life and, most prominently, how the world is going to eventually end your life. But don't let that scare you off, you don't have to be suicidal or death-obsessed to enjoy these. There's also plenty of corrupting encouragement and evil enthusiasm for the budding sociopath out there as well! Because we care.

Of course we realize that this type of dark humor will only be enjoyed by a certain kind of exceptional person. In some ways Twisted Jenius's Dark Musings are a little like laughter, happiness and a feeling of self-worth; they're clearly not meant for everyone.

And if you haven't seen them already, be sure to check out all of our previous Dark Musings!
