I made a tiny handwired keyboard, and now I feel like I can do anything

@sg Niiice. I've been wanting to learn to so some electronics stuff for ages.

@blueberrysoft I highly recommend mechanical keyboards as a place to start! I'd recommend starting with a PCB-based one - keeb.io/ and spacecat.design/ have some good kits for small keebs and macropads


@sg Thanks! Maybe I'll make a wee one too, with enough buttons to be a dedicated game controller.

@blueberrysoft Mostly it’s a testbed for learning how to laser cut and how to handwire a keyboard, but also I can use it for this other idea I had when I realized keebs have tiny computers in them... All I will say for now is that it’ll be a game controller for *itself*!

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 :)
