9 Things That Happen At Target When You’re Latino

You tell yourself it’ll be a quick trip – just go in, directly to the aisle, grab what you need and go. That never happens. C’mon, it’s Target. Add that to all of this that happens and you’ve got yourself a 2-hour retail therapy sesh…

1. You go in for toilet paper, come out with 5 bags of Hot-Cheetos.

HOW are you supposed to resist them? It’s like you’re the moth and they are the flame…get it? FLAMIN’? Whatever, they’re a legitimate addiction and you’ll never get over it.

2. Abuela always manages to find candles on sale.

And we don’t mean the scented kind.

3. You tend to hold up the check-out line because you’re trying to dig up all your coupons from your oversized bag.

You nervously try to make conversation with the cashier to distract him / her.

4. No matter what you go there for, you always walk out with Goya Adobo seasoning.

Target has bomb prices when it comes to groceries which explains you walking out with three cans of seasoning when… you already have two unopened cans at home.

5. If you wear a red shirt, expect shoppers to tap you on the shoulder and ask you where the body wash is.

But you asked for it because if there’s one unwritten Target rule, it’s you don’t wear a red shirt.

6. You walk out with gifts for la tía, la prima, la vencina, la cuñada, la sobrina, la ahijada, la maestra…

You can’t leave with just one thing.

7. You luckily always find your favorite ranchera albums on sale.

You’d never forgive yourself if for some reason they had a Chavela Vargas CD on sale and you walked out without it. Unforgivable.

8. Your quick trip turns into a two-hour voyage.

Because you literally stop, stare and everything. Only Target can convince you that you need a weaved hamper.

9. You run into your tía.

Because Target is always a familia affair.

WATCH: The Amazing Footage From Cuba’s First Independent Video Game

Meet Cuban game developers Josuhe Pagliery and Johann Hernandez. They’re the creative geniuses behind “Savior,” Cuba’s first indie video game.

Already over a year into development, “Savior” promises a one-of-a-kind 2D gaming experience that transcends traditional platforming. Set for a 2018 release, with a demo version available in early 2017, “Savior” promises to be both a loving nod to gaming’s 2D past and a glimpse of Cuba’s vibrant future. Let’s take a closer look.

The hand-drawn art of “Savior” captures a fragile world on the brink of destruction, or, perhaps, on the eve of some great redemption.

Josuhe Pagliery’s artistry has filled every frame of “Savior” to the brim with gorgeous details that give the world its unique personality.

Little is known about the storyline, but what Empty Head Games has shared reveals that the universe is on the verge of disintegration and reality might not be all it seems. In fact, the world of “Savior” might even be a video game within a video game.

Over the course of the game, the player will confront numerous enemies through a variety of imaginative worlds.

And each level offers the player “surprising” and “erratic” ways to deal with enemies.

According to their IndieGoGo, “Savior” will feature “dynamic, reflex-based gameplay,” and “Using the right sequence of commands and responses, players and [sic] trigger increasingly complex and destructive combos.”

All the while, those gorgeous backgrounds reveal a world that is as strange as it is familiar.

The world of “Savior” owes a lot to Cuba’s current socio-economical state, which itself is a world on the brink of a new era.

Developing a game in Cuba would have been nearly unthinkable just a few years ago. Access to quality technology and limitations in critical resources, like wifi, are just a few of the hurdles the creators of “Savior” have had to face. However, these limitations are also part of the DNA of “Savior.”

As the INDIEGOGO for “Savior” states,

“‘Savior’ isn’t just a game, it’s a reflection of our personal experiences in Cuba, from the crumbling scenery to the unpredictable story to the stylized and hand drawn artwork. It’s a product of our generation and the evolution of the Cuban artistic community.”

Even with their amazing dedication to “Savior,” the developers can’t do it alone.

The demo for “Savior” is set for February 2017, but the game still needs a lot of work to get it to that point. That’s why Empty Head Games has set up an IndieGoGo for supporters help them reach their goal of $10,000, which they will use to hire more Cuban game developers. As an added incentive, Empty Head Games is offering numerous perks — you’ll even get to appear as a character in the game if you donate $300. However, any bit of money will help. “Savior” has been a labor of love for the duo, who have faced more challenges than the average indie game developer.  If this is the kind of project you’d want to support, show these Cuban game developers a little love at their official IndieGoGo page.
