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!
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.

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.

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

I think regular Blender's got a bunch better recently, but it's still an interesting project.
Game Making Tools is a few things, but mostly a wiki for amateur game/vidcon makerers.
1/2 admin accounts, handles most of the adminy announcement stuff :)
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
