Oh, aside from my website making event, there's a real neat one on GT called Potluck Party 2019, for making whatever you want!
'Make a video game, make a side dish, make a digital toy, make an entree, make a snippet of music, make a pie, make a flatgame, make a dessert, make a downloadable PDF-zine... You get the idea. Everyone has a seat at the table and all ability levels are welcome.'
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
