Watching Allison Parrish's microblogging about computationally generated asemic writing - particularly https://friend.camp/@aparrish/103869885174359266 about adding a little bit of repetition and structure - has inspired us to mess around a bit with making random glyphs using our PICO-8 bezier curve code.
I think there's definitely room for improvement in this - some kind of "at least this tall" element would make sense, I think - but I'm digging what's here so far.

Made a couple tweaks and fixed a bug on the PICO-8 asemic writing thing - still haven't done the give-it-vertical-size thing, but I think the shapes are a bit nicer.

Have done a give-it-vertical-size thing to the PICO-8 asemic writing cart! Good amount of progress in a day.

Updated our PICO-8 asemic writing program to animate the drawing of the glyphs!

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
