For those who weren't aware of Playscii, my open source ASCII art, animation, and game creation program, I released two minor updates for it recently, most of which make its Art Mode a bit more polished:
Finally properly uninstall Gnu IMP and replaced it with #Glimpse
When you learn music theory you hear rules like "no parallel motion in fifths" and "V resolves to I" and eventually you learn these aren't bright lines you mustn't cross, they're guides we've observed to have worked in the past. Storytelling classes skip that last part I guess?
The conflict-driven story is an extremely Western, capitalist form. https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Kishotenketsu
I've had this idea brewing for years to make everything I make (Art, music, code, etc.) all contribute to one story and I spent more time thinking about it and I'm finally ready to make the central picece that literally everything else will link to, but I'm having a hard time getting the idea onto paper. It's like the gravity of how important this piece will be to my future art means it absolutly has to be perfect. Normally I find chasing perfection unhealthy, but I like the challange this time
It's Sekret Santa time again!!
You make a list of things you might want in a game, a secret person gets your list and makes a game for you using that list as inspiration.
games that are a big series of small windows is an overlooked aesthetic
Decided to ease myself into learning how to make music in #pico8 by making a wind chime program.
...making metallic sounds is pretty difficult, it turns out. Will have to decide if I want to use this marimba-like sound or to keep experimenting...
dropped a couple bug fix releases for https://selfsame.itch.io/unitywfc this week

--that's it's not very well curated, pretty US-centric (but not too much), and has a lot of ones I wouldn't touch with a ten-foot pole (are commercial, ask for money, etc.). Still could be a useful resource / starting point though.
Game Making Tools is a few things, but mostly a wiki for amateur game/vidcon makerers.
1/2 admin accounts, handles most of the adminy announcement stuff :)
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
