One week left for submissions, and there is definitely space for you.
I can also give a couple more details that I don’t think I have announced before. The size of the zine will be 5.5x8 inches, and in full color, for the art and photo contributions.
Really looking forward to what comes in at the end.
i read something today which i thought grounded n-dimensional rotations in a common framework really nicely.
it frames a rotation as a transformation, but one of a class which preserve distance and angle.
some people claim that well-established straight white dudes' careers are destroyed over "social justice" backlash. not typically -- dudes tend to remain comfortably wealthy
then when a marginalized individual fails to perfectly represent every unique aspect of the human experience, they're subjected to "the same" negative consequences, except, big difference: they actually suffer economic damages
it's hypocrisy, cowardice and bullshit. it's enabled by "progressives" and it has to fucking stop
Exciting news: my awesome boss just fired me with two days notice after working for him for almost five years, over an argument we had six months ago!
That's okay, I was getting myself together for freelancing anyway. I truly believe my talents lie in the realm of visual communication and would love to lend my well-practiced hand to a #gamedev project or pick up some comissions. Any leads are appreciated! 😺
i wrote about tools! lots of cool tools!
my new post about the wonderful world of tools made by small teams, solo-devs, and shareware...
weird, beautiful, and experimental things to be creative in
a lot of these are relevant to gamedev
Why isn’t there an open standard / specification for toy building blocks like #lego so many different brands and individuals can sell / print their own awesome compatible sets without legal threats?
Or is there one already?
Casually wondering how to make more real-instrument analogues in #pico8
we managed to use the undocumented reverb features to make credible marimbas and chimes, but we still don't know how to make a recognizable violin or strummed guitar...

sexism in tech, gitlab

There is literally nothing edgy, metal, or counter-culture about sarcastic/joking/embodying white supremacy, capitalism and patriarchy because it's literally just a regular Tuesday.
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
