Rocket World. Open-world Rocket League. Big area, lots of cars, one ball.

Done a wee blog post on my terrible attempt to do a drawing a day (I like the drawings, it's just that I didn't keep it up):

(the CSS on my blog's a mess, cripes)

Here're the first four of the six images (no captions, sorry. They're some abstract doodles in Tux Paint):

Oh hey, looks like they've ended up releaseing the Ulillillia doco The Platform Master as-is:

tbh honest I'm glad they didn't end up polishing it up.

A week later, my new game has a name. Got level generation to work, barring tweaks. And #ASCII #roguelikes look stunning in 3D.

Quest (1985)

AKA the old Apollo render test that Death Grips sampled in Known For It

Total Knockout/Total Knockout Boxing (Digital Lobster Company/Starhill Productions, 1995) #DOSGaming

It is soft and well-made, but does not offer much in the way of metal, making it ill-suited to use in battle. A long-hilted soul arrow with a barbed point. Long ago, the Way of Rainbow produced its first corporeal beast, a paladin in alabaster armor.

I've started on GhostYard3084 for the C64, a Robotron/Centipede hybrid where only one soft-sprite grunt is moved per frame. Thus, there's plenty of CPU available for a fancy graphics mode.

I'm using UFLI - each 2x8 slab can have two colors plus black, thanks to double-width black sprites under the foreground color. An 8x8 soft-sprite can have 8 colors plus black!

This leaves 2 hardware sprites, which I'll use Asteroids2600 style for ghosts/bats/hearts.

Its inspired by stardew valley, night in the woods, undertale, pathologic, and a few other games. Genre wise its like, capitalism survival sim plus town rpg, and the mechanics focus on your characters wellbeing and forming connections w your neighbours :)

Cool thing about playing EDF5 on Linux is if you force Direct 3D all the reflections go a shimmery pink

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
