Posted By on Wed, May 6, 2020 at 1:00 AM

To encourage social distancing during the spread of COVID-19, we are altering our regular “Event Horizon” section for the foreseeable future. While many local events have been canceled, we will clue you into at least one local online experience — this week: Inside Out Youth Services' virtual, all-ages Queer Prom — and recommend some fun things you can do at home. Please continue to support local arts during this difficult time.

Play

Those Who Remain

Real-life fears can be momentarily forgotten as you dive into the terrifying realms of Those Who Remain. This psychological horror game puts you in the middle of Dormont, a town rife with secrets, mysterious disappearances and something much darker. You’ll play as Edward, a man who has the misfortune of stopping in Dormont as he works to deal with his own dark secrets. Be ready for lots of jump scares and disturbing visuals — it might be good to have a friend on the headset with you. Available May 15 on most gaming platforms.

Officer Clemmons

There is a lot of love and nostalgia for Mr. Rogers these days but the kindly neighbor wasn’t the only star of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood to make a memorable impression. François Clemmons played the character of Officer Clemmons, one of the few consistent black characters in children’s programming in a time when representation was limited. In this memoir, Clemmons shares his life outside the neighborhood, including his traumatic childhood, his sexual identity as a gay man and his other creative projects. Available now.

Listen

Humanitou

Describing himself as an unintentional journalist, Adam Williams first launched Humanitou as a website in 2017, where he interviewed artists, local leaders and other guests, and published their portraits. In March 2020, Williams transitioned the project into a podcast where listeners can now get to know many of the fascinating people who live in the Pikes Peak region — and those who are just passing through. Listen now at humanitou.co.
