list of all game genres, ranked in order of how fucking hard they are to make

Also my first journal article is finally out lol!!!! Good for me but the other pieces in the issue are probably more interesting, esp. the indie game valuation one:

I'm planning on starting an open source project for a Unity asset. I'll take any advice you can give me, starting with the name, it's an asset that automates the building process and I'm completely blank on what I should call it (it's just Builder now)

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

PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
