Guts 'n' Garters in DNA Danger (Magic Canvas Entertainment/Ocean Software, 1997) #DOSGaming

Extremely emotionally affecting piece of art at my local thrift store

i guess the important thing is not for it to export 3-d models, but for it just to be data like jsob or yaml or something. that was games can interpret it different ways. but provide standard 3-d and 2-d representations too.

so how do i invent miis but for pcs so we can make cute little games and put our friends and pets in them???

i mean i can figure out how to make miimaker, but no one would use them :( :( :(

tbh i think the switch is the blandest thing nintendo's done, and ditching the clamshell, stylus, and fun Mii stuff sucks.

i really like the 3ds :(

i'm totally getting one when animal crossing comes out though :(

Duncan Robson's "Hours Played" is a really wonderful tour of games:
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 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.

Up now: the first part of the Melon Brains longplay! Covers the first half of the first side.

Playing a Janky Version of Breakout on a CRT TV Sitting Behind a Mirror in the Bathroom of a Gourmet Restaurant at 2:19 PM

is my new favourite game

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.

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
