RPS have increased their freelancer rate and are asking for submissions so please, fellow writers, bloggers, and "but I'm not good enough"s: LET US ENQUEER THEM

rockpapershotgun.com/2019/04/2

Dear Ruby devs and game devs. I have a crazy announcement I want to share. Please boost.

Last week I released A Dark Room to the Nintendo Switch. Within the game, I also shipped a Ruby interpreter and a code editor as an Easter Egg.

*This Easter Egg effectively turns every consumer spec-ed Nintendo Switch into a Ruby Machine.*

1. Download A Dark Room from the US/EU.
2. Connect a USB keyboard and press the “~” key.
3. Follow the onscreen instructions.

Hey, I could use some help with research on a feature I’m working on… what are some examples of RPGs that clearly tell you what level your enemies are when the fight starts? Especially if there’s multiple of them!

@body I misinterpreted "chess tarot" as "tarot chess", which would also be good

And the Mystery Dungeon 2 jam still has a couple of weeks left too.

I don't have a link to any page, but you can find out about it in the Bitsy discord group:

discordapp.com/invite/9rAjhtr

(The invite link is from the Bitsy Pieces Twitter account... mb I should do a Fedi version of that ... )

Event where you are assigned a collaborator and you work together on a game by passing it back and forth.

(organised by @sunsetoverbuildings btw)

Fragment Jam:

itch.io/jam/fragmentjam

'Fragment Jam is a game jam focused on admiring and sharing unfinished games (fragments). Maybe you want to revisit these projects someday, maybe you want closure and to move on, perhaps you want to make a fragment for the jam. Fragment Jam is here to help sort it out and to provide a platform for celebrating and sharing our fragments. '

Gunna dump some links to some interesting game jamborees.

RE the last boost: Note that the postage and handling cost is several hundred dollars!, but also that these keyboards are really hard to get and are worth about $1500 + p/h as best I can tell. And yeah, it supports MIDI.

The makers of the Chromatone keyboard are offering their product for free (plus international shipping) for a limited time chromatone.jp/online-shop/en.h

RT @RancidBacon@twitter.com
Here's a non-animated view of the Godot MIDI keyboard input demo in action. Source code available here: github.com/follower/godot-midi #GodotEngine

Your roughly tri-monthly reminder that there is a #Matrix room called "Share the #Commons", in which people (i.e. mostly me) share quality digital artefacts that can be freely circulated.

Hi! I hope Game Making Social is 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.
