Hi @newyokohama and @Kihunter , welcoem to Game Making Social!

If you want any tips on finding people here let me know, it can be a bit tricky at first.

I've been maintaining a list of words coined by #TedNelson and just pushed a bunch of updates, available at fangl.es The URL is actually an example of one such word :) #hypertext #hypermedia #xanadu

Okay, wow. the chatrooms are games too, where people download and edit add new rooms and comments and reupload. this's amazing :phpbb_eek:

Digging round the games you can download with the free 'player'.

There seems to be some contraversy going on? People are responding to each other via games. Fancy little games with opinions on stuff in a chatroom. Really interesting!

Also I played a game where a dog shows you some graves, and the only one with text says:

> Trisha's FEET:
> 1969-2017

In this thread, it is #recess. Tell me about that secret in the new videogame your uncle at Nintendo told you about #gameingTheory

Been playing with RPG Maker Fes (3DS) a little. It sure would be much more fun if all the included graphics were less specifically meant to be things, and you could change their colour palettes.

is there a sane way to self host a newsletter or mailing list? i refuse to resort to mailchimp etc with all their tracking pixels and whatever the hell they're doing these days

(btw don't say tinyletter, they're owned by mailchimp 👀 )

Made good progress on my sortingh.at replacement overnight. Basicaly just have the asset-making recs to do (so maybe 50% done?). Gunna be my priority project till it gets ready to release.

Will put it up on my Git thing too. I think it will be much better with input from other people... hurry up and get federated gitea etc.

If you own the itchio Racial Equality bundle you picked up a really useful software called TAPE, by Aeriform

From the page:

TAPE is a simple, elegant and intimate project management tool designed for artists, designers, or any creative professionals.

Track projects in Collections, tasks and deliverables as Items within Collections, setting the state of each Item depending on its status, as simple as clicking.

Go to itchio's bundle page, look up TAPE, & claim it


It's almost time for IFComp 2020!


Registration closes on the 1st of Septermber, and entries are due by the 28th.

Anyone need an #Accessibility/usability consultant? I'm asking because my Netflix bill is due soon. I'd also like to order 🍕 again. blindjournalist.wordpress.com/ #a11y

They have guarded the Great Paintings of an Undead paladin for ages, passing their duty down through the generations, but the reason for doing so passed from all memory long ago. Ancient halberd of an Eastern land. Sweep foes with Darkmoon grass whip which changes strength depending on light.

So it's also a good time to make requests! Either here, or on the main talk page.

Oh yeah, and I enabled the feature where people can add their own CSS rules. It's in the user profile bit.

(I'm tweaking the Timeless theme, not the Vector one btw.)

Recommendino: if you want to run a wiki use anything but MediaWiki.

Tweaking a new theme is reminding me how much I disliiiiiiike it. And this particular crew made it even more annoying by obscuring all the PHP and CSS behind some build process. Just let me tweak you shit without installing stuff pal.


Anyway we'll have a new wiki theme soon. Gunna cut down the pink/yellow colour combo. Make the main content area narrower, later add a dark-mode.

Today I launch #TheReadingRoom #TRR on my site! This is a reading group/book club & our first season is Black/Indigenous philosophy!

This includes members only access to my site/forums/reading materials. I'm also doing virtual class like events so we can have chats abt the texts & themes.

I've put a lot of work into the syllabus & the site & I think the fee reflects what's offered. I've been a visiting lecturer before but this is my very own program!

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
