When I shared this with a couple of our friends, I said I "wanted to write something to express something and I don't think I failed".

context for today's tune 

Shortly after a very stressful email exchange, we were on the couch watching something not stressful - videos from Desert Bus for Hope 2019 - when came up.

Before playing "When I Fall" by The Barenaked Ladies, Beej tells everyone about a bit of advice the songwriter got: "write the song like it's a story - like it's something you wanted to tell".

...and thinking on that, we got up, opened PICO-8, and tried to communicate how we'd felt.

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
