Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
@wishdream There're a few on the Wiki:
8-Bit RPG Creator seems pretty cool to me, but I haven't tried it.
Draw Your Game is pretty neat, but iirc you're limited to making platformer-type things.
Flatgame is really great for chuckign i na bunch of elements, so might be most useful?
#TIL The famous author H.G. Wells (War of the words, The Timemashine) published a book called 'Little Wars' in 1913.
This was the first printed ruleset for a tabletop wargame with miniatures ever and makes Wells the grandfather of games like Warhammer and BattleTech.
At the internet archive they have a nice scan of 'Little Wars':

Anyone know of a project needing a voice actor or narrator? I have a fairly deep south-west england voice that's looking for some exposure. Will do it for free if it's a small or non-profit project, charges if it's for an established company or project. Voice samples available on request.
Boosts appreciated, get me out there!

i just wrote a very in-depth post about UI design & how to approach designing it for games.
it talks about ways to incorporate it, how to view it, philosophies & history, nostalgia...how to approach it as a common interaction language to build emotion and character.
something i wrote a while back and finally got around to turning into a web page, "Oblique Strategies for Doom level designers": http://vectorpoem.com/doom_oblique

Apparently there's already a copy of a later revision of Corel Gallery featuring 1.3 million images and 16 CDs but I'm 13 discs into ripping so there's no stopping now https://archive.org/details/CorelGALLERY_1.3_million_pictures_-_16_CDs_Win95
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
