Was catching up on new posts on the Lexaloffle #Pico8 forums and stumbled over a link someone posted to a talk by Zep (Joseph White) about what PICO-8 is, how it came to be, why it is the way it is, and so on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87jfTIWosBw
I kind of knew the story from PICO-8 Zine #1 - https://sectordub.itch.io/pico-8-fanzine-1 - but I'm liking hearing the story retold in a different medium with different details.
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
