"game studies" 

Saying this as a relative nobody, but if you like the work of an artist, tell them.

- cheap, widely available, open (as much as possible) hardware
- SDK + simulator that runs on anything
- large community of people hacking on it & sharing knowledge
- diverse, welcoming culture that views games as an art form, doesn't care about the boundary between "game" and other stuff

Like, if the person profiting off the game is a GGer, or the team was forced to crunch for 18 months, or the company is trying to bust unions or silence sexual harassment claims... Disqualify the game. You shouldn't be arriving at the part of the conversation where you talk about the quality.

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
