Also my first journal article is finally out lol!!!! Good for me but the other pieces in the issue are probably more interesting, esp. the indie game valuation one: http://press.etc.cmu.edu/index.php/product/todigra-vol-4-no-2/

i was just looking through saved videos for reference, and came across this absolute gem. this is so mesmerizing.
i never played boulder dash, but afaict this is a custom level set which revels in some of the messier, more simulationist side of it.
Hey, this is nice, Unity's Cloud Diagnostic reporting has been opened up to personal users: https://blogs.unity3d.com/2018/11/06/performance-reporting-is-now-cloud-diagnostics
(I just found out about it via yesterday's blog post)
anyways. while cybre was down, i messed around with rpg in a box (thanks to @gamemakingtools for turning me onto it). mostly messed around and added a few new graphics to the example game included.
Fun fact: Mastodon supports link verification by using this thing called RelMeLink http://microformats.org/wiki/rel-me#domain_verification
This means that if both parties (Masto and site) have links pointing both ways, Masto can confirm it's being controlled by the parties involved.
Started a page for RPG in a Box. Really keen to try this out soon and make some little voxelpeople!
Also tweaking the Bforartists page. Wanted to do more, but I can't get it to build
In this week's report, I talk about water features, and my experiments in tweaking shaders.
7800 basic looks kind of neat, something i might want to play with http://www.randomterrain.com/7800basic.html
violence against women, gamer culture Show more
This is so goddamn true. Also fuck all the corporate enablers who allow and promote toxic gamer culture, and profit from misogynists, fascists, and Nazis, including Rockstar, Twitch, and Amazon. Fuck you for destroying good things.
"The history of left movements goes from one disappointment to another... Being disappointed is a default position. But if we have to be disappointed anyway all the time, we might as well have fun! ...It is very clear how new media will betray every little spark of emancipatory potential in the long-run. In the long-run, we will also be dead. But in the meantime, there are always small windows which open up certain possibilities and it would be completely foolish not to make the best of it."

I now have over half of my medium posts on my far superior personal site!! Soon I can take them all down! :) plus my new post on RDR2 and labor issues: https://coleoptera.neocities.org/writing.html
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! I hope Game Making Social is a cosey, 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 players most welcome! Unless you're a jerk!!
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 :)
Oi there's also a forum at forums.gamemaking.social.
PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
