next week on the pod @packetcat and I want to do a segment cover games and music being made by queer black folks, I’d appreciate it if you are making stuff or know someone who’s making good shit and could send it our way!

Hello and welcome to @ashleypringle and @eudelica

Hope you like it here! Let me know if you have any questions about how this all works.

(sorry, my mouse is borked, so the message got sent before I finished typing)

Other mastodon protip, keep in mind that you are sending copies of each post to other servers and when you make a private post or delete a post, you are on a technical level just asking another server politely to do what you expect. They might not.

Keep yourself safe and don't post anything that would totally fuck you up if it was publicly leaked.

I'm amazed that realtime, reliable CSG isn't already a mature tool that exists in every game engine. CSG, like unions, are a technology that has been neglected in games 😜 #GameDev #Unity3D youtube.com/watch?v=Iqmg4gblre

Hey fedi, what are some of your favourite accessibility features that you've seen implemented in video games?

thinking about the character size to screen size ratio in platformers. it has some really interesting effects on how much you relate to the character, sense of scale, suspense / missing information, etc.

Is there a website to help find primarily LGBT video games?

Not, like, a tiny bit of maybe bad representation, but instead almost all the characters are LGBT+?

My 8 yo wants to find more LGBT+ games. :boost_ok:

Here's a really good Twitter thread about the "Orc discourse" and the real world racism parallels to Orc stereotypes and why white people need to shut the fuck up about how it's a non-issue.

Blocked mstdn.social.

Lots of anti-trans comments, and staff boosting arsehole instances (FSE and Gleasonator).

( Thanks for the report <3 )

Looks like there's a new release of out - a version of with the aim of having a friendlier user-experience.

I think regular Blender's got a bunch better recently, but it's still an interesting project.

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
