Duncan Robson's "Hours Played" is a really wonderful tour of games: https://youtu.be/l8V6QtlRbro
The logic of its transitions feels downright magical at times. And I love the diversity of its sources; it pulls from many different eras and platforms and genres, and serves as a good reminder that while many of the most heavily promoted games today are about Dealing Damage To Stuff, that's only a fraction of the total idea-space of this medium and there are oceans of undercelebrated work.
I dunno if you lot know this about me but as well as fixing coin-ops, I run a little indie multiplayer text adventure game at improbableisland.com. Have done for just over ten years now. No ads, no creepy addictive game mechanics, kept alive by voluntary donations.
I'd really appreciate a boost, 'cause Project Wonderful shut down earlier this year, and we could do with some word of mouth.
feel like i had a good day of just brainstorming game ideas. elements from an old game i never made much of just organically fit into another one, which makes me happy.
also the babycastles stream was nice. really want to play Blobby Volley 2. they are cool peopke and i'm glad they reached their goal so they can stream more.

I was just poking round the website where I downloaded a nice gopher browser and then there's this handsome game: http://runtimeterror.com/games/sly/

Hey everyone! I’m planning an impromptu LaserActive stream tonight at 7:30PM PST. It’ll be short (1-2 hours), and we’re headed to Chicago! We’re playing Blue Chicago Blues for the Mega LD, a murder mystery. https://www.twitch.tv/ms_tea
It's live on Itch now, too! https://ristar.itch.io/secret-little-haven
