Updating our #introduction posts over here: hi! We're Packbat, an autistic nonbinary USian plural system and novice game dev. Our main focus right now is PICO-8, which we have found delightful to work in; we've also recently made games with LÖVE (Love2d) and Bitsy and made a couple tabletop games.
We love nonviolent and especially cooperative gameplay, good sound and art design, and games used as a tool of artistic expression and communication. We hope to make and appreciate cool stuff here. 💚
(Our personal account on the fediverse is @packbat, but that is very much a /personal/ account - don't send a listen request there unless we know you or you've read our profile and pinned rars and know why you're asking permission to.)
(We do authorize most followers, but it's our private account, not a public face.)
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
