Pinned toot

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 very slowly going through those Small Axe films.

Haven't loved any so far, but that sure was one of the few good party depictions I've seen in a film in the second one. And this's been stuck in my head for a week:

Both of the Aphex Twins have a specific role: The first Aphex Twin makes albums. The second twin collects synthesizers. The third twin prevents the first from touching the synthesizers, and the fourth deletes the albums.

Paku Paku uses an "undocumented" CGA mode which is essentially a text mode exploit that lets you have 16 color graphics with a very low resolution.
There are two cool old PC games that use this mode quite successfully, both developed by Macrocom. "Icon: Quest for the Ring" from 1984, and "The Seven Spirits of Ra" from 1987. #DOSGaming

Everyone's constantly tempted to make their avatar the Windows shortcut icon, so when they boost things it looks like a shorty, right?

You can download the disk image and play it on an emulator / real hardware, or you can play it directly in the browser.

Let me know what y'all think! It's been a fun journey to put this all together.

Anyone know of a good place to find an open-licence template for a forum code of conduct? It's blatantly for my homework.

'PCCW Limited (formerly known as Pacific Century CyberWorks Limited) is'

...a fool for changing their name.

Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.

It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.

Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!

I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.

Please read the rules before signing-up :)

PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
