Also today checking up on Twitter people I saw Lee Tusman's 'You Must Make Games' page, which is a good guide to some friendly game making tools.
(also it's nice to know someone nice likes the wiki ( ;^;))
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
