Welcome @june : the first person so signup since I switched from open registration to approval-based ones
Game maker friends, I know cryptic names are cool and all but if your release is just a zip file named "oC11b72rv1.zip", which is only one single exe file (of course it's named oC11b72rv1.exe), there's less than zero chance I'll run it again when I find it in a backup 5 years later.
readme files, they're nice, pls make one
@mirzaba Oh wow, nice
Always keep an open mind during the creative process, don't be afraid to go against plans.
Like look at this beautiful accident in Drive Me To The Moon by Olivia Haines:
We have just provided a progress report for the first week of #Glimpse project!
Thank you so much to everyone that has expressed interest and contributed so far. The links in this post should answer some of your FAQs and direct you to our project communication channels.
open source software development advice
If you do a thing in an open source project, and you have a hard time doing it because it's not documented, after you finish doing the thing... document it. If the project has a wiki, put it in the wiki. If it has a docs repo you can write to, put it there. Or at least blog about it so search engines can index it.
Please don't leave the solution to languish in a chat log somewhere.
Ever had the need to embed Youtube videos, tweets, etc.?

Making progress, getting a few editing tools working. Don't mind the sterile placeholder textures, they'll be going soon. #gamedev
@falgn0n If instance admins would stop being arseholes I'd actually have time to learn and post about more interesting stuff :|
@nymph aaaaaaaa i totally flaked on this, sorry.
There's a good little book calked Dark Emu that talks about a lot of lies about Aboriginal peoples, like agriculture and architecture and things. It's by Bruce Pascoe who's generally a guy you might wanna look up.
There's a TV series called First Australians that goes over a lot of stuff from all round the country. Should be torrentable.
And a bigger read, targetted at white Australians, is Decolonising Solidarity by Clare Land.
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 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
