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:

gamemaking.tools/wiki/index.ph

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?

Anyone know if there are actual game dev tools on the phone so I can make games experiments on the go?

Like an editor in Android, any language is fine.

And no, I don't mean making for Android, I mean making within Android itself.

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.
👉 nathalielawhead.com/candybox/o
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": 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 archive.org/details/CorelGALLE

Dreamt that cats made a musical called “Humans,” gave themselves horrible smooth CG skin and sang about things like insurance premiums and how they love to not give food to cats

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
