I'm teaching about #Audacity for the first time tomorrow, so I've got two questions for you:

* Which is the feature you think everyone should know about?
* What is a rad public-domain / CC audio recording we should use?

#floss #audio

protip for linux unity devs: no video format will work for the player properly except webm... it claims ogv works but it doesn't. had a frustating hour or so playing trial and error

tiny trash monsters, updated. there are some good weird ones on the last few rows.

Wish pacifist runs in games weren’t the high-skill hard-mode way to play them

holy shit someone from Amazon asked if they could do a dev stream with encompass but were put off by the Cooperative Software License and asked me to change it to Apache or MIT.

me: 🚮

Contrary to popular belief, having values is not detrimental to software development.

This ended up a "download everything or nothing" situation, unfortunately, but here are the goods! archive.org/details/50000ultim

Did I already share this?

Open Music | openmusic.gallery
(website seems to be own at the moment?)

A JSON-based format for open-source music. Something like MIDI files, but human-readable (so good for generating data tooo), easily editable online, and they contain links to the sounds (think soundfonts) they use.

Video explains it better :blobmelt:

I devoted a portion of my dissertation to the ways that viral linguistics (mostly memes, but not always) are only deficient in the ways that they have been co-opted by the cultural mechanisms of capital.

So yeah that's 4 random games from itch. I think I came to all of them via word of mouth from here or birdsite, I can't even remember via who at this point. I love the idea of doing writeups like this on the reg but we'll see if I have the energy for it.
Definitely please dig around on itch for things that interest you, it's the only way to save ourselves from a world where everyone only ever talks about the same five huge games that each cost 9 trillion dollars to make.

gamemaking.social

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
