Hi @tiger , welcome to Game Making Social :knp_moon:

A way to get started that I always suggest is to make an introduction post, and tag it with some interests and 'introduction' and 'introductions'. Yeah, there are two common intro post tags in English :/ :/ :/

From there it'll be easy to click on those tags and see where they lead!

If you have any questions please ask.

I need a new webhost, I was going to use squarespace to avoid having to code navigation but found out it won't support what I want to do. It's a portfolio website so it shouldn't get too much traffic but I do want to host videos there and have them load quickly. What do people use these days? I am just dipping my toes into webdev for the first time since 2007 so something simple would be helpful.

i'm retiring an older collaborative project that never quite got off the ground... BUT in doing so we're releasing the tiles we drew for it into the creative commons. 281 free, hand-drawn isometric tiles, to use in your projects:

Noticed user posting garbage from far-right media orgs. Haven't had any response from anyone there after reporting.

Anti-mask, anti-lockdown kinda bullshit:

lite is a reasonably nice programmer's text editor written in Lua.

Last night I decided it might be fun to try to port it to love2d. Today it mostly works? It's bogging down sometimes for reasons I don't understand, some (but not all!) of the icon glyphs aren't showing up correctly. But it can edit itself!

i'm not a musician (tho @raekh is) but i've seen one really cool music friend concept before called in the dark, where the musicians involved send each other loops of various length/content and then they mix the loops they received into a track

Just noticed that the cool and long-running zine shop in my city used Bitsy for their zine festival this year

The zines aren't in there, but you talk to zine authors.

Note: They have multiple different dialoguues!

Why they make them, how they heard about them, the first zine they read, favourite tools, et cetera.

Hi @SeveralQuestions , welcome to Game Making Social!

The Fediverse can be a bit confusing at first, so please ask if you have any questions.

A good first step is to make a post tagged with 'introductions'' that includes some tags for things you're interested in.

are there any fedi musicians/producers who would be interested in doing an exchange remix project?

i haven't thought it out in detail but the starting point is the concept of remixing one (or possibly more) of each other's tracks

(boosts welcome)

Today and tomorrow, some freshly graduated #XPUB students will present at the wild state in #Linz as part of an #arselectronica programme created and hosted by the Universität für künstlerische und industrielle Gestaltung.

The presentations are streamed online:

@pedrosaclout Tactical #Watermarks is an online republishing platform that exists in both the clear and dark web, exploring topics such as anonymity, paywalls, archives and provenance through digital watermarks.

@estragon Syster Papyri Magicae is a web-based project that unfolds the phenomenon of #gender exclusions in male-dominated tech environments, aiming to discuss and activate feminist practices that respond to this issue.

@r1ta Networks of Care offers a collection of user guidelines for you to browse, dissect and analyse. Delve into the conversations with different #community members and find useful templates, resources, and experiments. Let’s explore the networks of care generated together.

Full scheduled at

black speculative fiction writers open from now til 10/5, for all speculative fiction writers from 9/15 to 10/5

While doing some research, I stumbled upon a 1998 article/site talking about websites as digital gardens. Plenty of great, if somewhat esoteric, advice on making a website experience more of a collection of 'Unexpected Delights' than a rigid system.

This speaks to me - highly recommended!

Page for generating Teletext-looking web pages out of Teletext markup!

Click 'Back' too, lots of cool Teletext resources on that page.

The exploitation of modern content platforms for purposes other than designed—e.g. Twitter news bots, YouTube music streams, podcasts, Discord for documentation—is merely a result of their monopolization of content discovery and integration.

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
