I suddenly remembered that mastodon was a thing.

Hot take on media 

You can really enjoy a work and also know the creator is a revolting slimebucket. You don't have to defend a creator purely on the grounds that they made something you enjoy. You enjoy things for all sorts of reasons, one of those is probably not because the author personally is the best thing since sliced bread.

The authors of your favorite stuff may one day turn out to be wretched. In no way does that invalidate the elements of that work which speak to your experience.

I will probably only be at PAX East on Sunday (CXG Mentor Lounge, followed by my panel at 1:30pm), but I'd love to see people! I'll also be at Made in MA tonight. And obviously, y'all should come to Women in Games Boston's demo night on Monday <3

Hey Bay Area folk, I'm coming to San Francisco in mid-March (17-24), and I want to hang out <3

Dear websites that try to guilt me into turning off my ad blocker: that's a wasted effort, it only serves to piss me off.

I did a thing a few years ago where I collected weird free postcards from places (restaurants, game swag, etc) and then sent them out to various people. I've amassed a small collection again, so who wants one?

Things that drive Adri nuts: Every other post on this one polyamory group is a photo of either a) something unicorn-related or b) an unrelated use of the word "poly".

Yesterday, I played a hybrid of Call of Cthulhu and AD&D called "Ravenloft of Cthulhu".

I will forever hear "sheep among wolves" as "sheep in my walls."

Attending a "retrofuturism festival" this weekend! It's got Lots of Things (so much synthwave), but most importantly, I'm looking forward to playing new-to-me RPGs and board games. (It looks like the LARPs are all day affairs, and I don't want to limit myself.)

Whoops. I guess you can't put a hashtag in a CW header.

#Introductions post: 

I'm an avid gamer, whether it's video games, board games, live action roleplaying, or tabletop roleplaying.

I write text adventures, and I specialize in short, adorable games. I also work in the games industry, although I'm somewhat private about where exactly.

I run two local game dev meetups, curate games for a local games festival, and am in the early stages of running a narrative games conference.


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
