I'd love to just make shit like this all day, collect weird controllers, open a museum where people can play with stuff, and commission people to make games for them...
Like a synth museum/lab for controllers.
@gamemakingtools there’s ways to get money for projects like these.
I know the outlines of the process. i’ve watched other people do it.
@zens Hmmm. That's food for thought. I only know about ways to get funding for orgs that are already running.
@gamemakingtools presumably you wouldn’t go straight to forming an org; i was thinking a singular travelling show, ala “game on” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Game_On_(exhibition)
@zens Oh I getcha. It's more my style to run it something like an artist-run space, like start out of an unused shop or a garage or something.
I remember the local DIY games place raised their initial funds by doing game parties round the country.
This is making me think of this a bit more seriously, thanks. I'm gunna sit down and figure out what I actually want.
@gamemakingtools right- a travelliing event can get sponsorships and grants; if that turns out to be successful you then have the cred and funds to have a space and a name
