Haven't had an intro up for ages, so:

Hi, I'm BLUEBERRY SOFT, a videogame company from Melbourne, Australia, living / working on Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong land.

I like working with materials I find online; other people's / collective ideas are more interesting to me than my own.

I'd like to do more local community-building, and generally encourage other people to make games, but I'm kinda shit at it :(

Been listening to the soundtrack to the movie Foxes a bunch. Never seen it, just saw the record on Discogs when going through some seller's listings.

Really like this song Fly Too High by Janis Ian:

And this one, Bad Love by Cher:

MOODS

Moroder produced the whole thing, so there's lots of nice synths on there.

Woke up thinking I could cut my game at a one page thing instead of an eight page thing, but I tried and it just seems a bit ... nothing.

Very glad the warm weather's finally arrived, but it's too hot to be at my computer and still use my imagination.

this popped into my head in the shower this morning and now you have to look at it

Some context: six years ago I attempted to write a 1m30s song a day for NaNoWriMo. Some were awful but a lot of them had promise. They’re up on my SoundCloud if you’re curious to hear them. soundcloud.com/SpindleyQ

I've been playing Doshin The GIant (slowly). I didn't know about this expansion where you're a kid who pisses on things: youtube.com/watch?v=U-PorIVIG-

lol guess who was painstakingly converting all the text on a blog to fullwidth when they coulda just been using text-transform:full-width to do it with css :lsd_face2:

Spending way too long on the titlescreen, as usual.

Should probably do a project that's just titlescreens.

Domino Club anonymous drop 2 now available here: itch.io/c/1890599/tri-jam-octo

And the first one, if you missed it: itch.io/c/1704058/domino-jam-j

I have a game in both, but won't tell you which it is ;P

Had a weird thing in Clickteam Fusion where the first scene had no options to make sounds in the event editor. Cloning the scene fixed that, but then I got these weird empty error (i assume) popups and can no longer test the game, even after restarting CF. Strange! I have like 3 different versions of CF, so probably not a big problem.

Enjoying making my little Breakout idea, anyway.

Yeah, magically Crackle/Spork picked today to confirm what my favourite sport was, so I changed it from 'Rocket League' to 'F1'.
