If you have any questions please ask, I know Mastodon and the Fediverse can be a bit unintuitive at first.

Zine time too!

Applications for the big zine fare in Melbourne are open now, and due by the end of the 10th of January.

Because it's online, it's open to international entries.

There's also a Aus-only, contact-free zine swap thing on there you can do.

Online version will be in February, with, hopefully, a physical one in August.

YES YES YES It's Sekret Santa time!

If you want to swap games for ~Christmas please sign-up and post some things you'd like to see in your pressie.

Sign-ups end 8th of December.


Although I did like the aesthetic of the Pixel City tiles:

I'm not sure they're really appropriate for the editor view in , because you're going to be placing pawns on top of them by dragging, and it's not hard for buildings to block the tile you want. I'm not really up to implementing SimCity2k-style camera rotation, at least at the moment.

The most usable modern set I've found is from Kenney:

Anybody got suggestions?

Hire me to translate your game into French!

I’m native in French and fluent in English. I’m familiar with American, British and French pop culture and references.

I’ve already made a full fan-translation of a game, including graphics and TTS voices:

Boosts welcome!

I've previously talked about being bummed that Godot doesn't have a nice way of printing formatted JSON via the built-in to_json() GDScript functon. Turns out that the JSON class has a print() function that does! Thanks to for the heads up :)

do you use patreon or github sponsors or open collective or <something else> for funding ongoing open source projects? any recommendations?

Also The Bitsy Essay Jam is this week! Make a nonfiction bitsy, adapt a favorite work of research or theory to a cute game format, whatever you feel!!

If anyone's looking for some music for a game, video, etc, my tracks are all creative commons non-commercial licensed with attribution.

I should mention that I've removed the forum, because it wasn't being used :( and I can't really be arsed trying to revive it.

Hi @hollowgaming , sorry it's taken a few days, but welcome to GM.S!

I think you know how Fedi stuff works (?), but please let me know if you have any questions about things.

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
