@mirzaba @thewaether yeah tbh i'd like to block .social entirely, but some cool people are still there :(

it'll be good to see you round more kate!

Also there are so many neat things to boost.

I wish I had a Muscleveinia screenshot to post :(

I'm trapped in bed keeping the cat warm, that's why i'm mastodoning so much hehe.

@hellojed i'm always keen on a linux build, but easy enough to run the windows one if it's a hassle :)

Finished my game! I'm calling it Detour Theater. Watch a movie in an old drive-in theater! It's for Windows and Mac. Download and play here: hellojed.itch.io/detour-theate. #gamedev

Let me know if anyone wants a Linux build!

Desperate for inspiration, he created a cute dream monitoring/sharing program, ChooSys ("choo" is the birdfolks' onomatopoeia for snoring), to data mine nightmares. ChooSys determines it can mine faster if dreams never end, trapping everyone in perpetual sleep, much to the scientist's chagrin.

some work on radial elements for treelike forms. this landed in place which also can lean into the shell-like, crinoid end of the spectrum as well, depending on context.

@alienmelon I love the combination of the interface with the plain HTML/directories in each of the projects! It feels like going to a museum and then going into the archive behind the scenes

small update!
i just finished my portfolio site of abandoned and unfinished (and also finished) work.
it's very unusual, and interesting.

Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a 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
