Pinned toot

hi I'm selfsame and this is my game dev aspect. I've made a lot of art games and have a lot of strange dev gifs I might share from time to time.

I also make tools and have a big interest in procedural generation.

Oh! I'm also a huge fan of Blender and always happy to answer questions.

spent today shifting a failed idle game prototype from the summer over to a new format and it already feels so, so much better and more interesting

ah ok actually I wasn't cleaning up an object in ArcadiaGodot's tween fn

phew I can maybe get back to working on my game tomorrow

Godot has this design quirk that is bumming me out where:

nodes are _ready from bottom up, so children before parents

you can't add a child to a node before it is _ready

So on your game's first frame you can't manipulate the full scene, and any of ArcadiaGodot's convenience functions like tween that add things to the root node will throw an error

think my first project of the year is going to be an idle game for phones with a match 2 mechanic

would be cool to put a bunch of those old Victorian stereogram photos in VR but render each side to a different eye so they are 3D

put up my 2020 personal projects page. Games, a month of music, some creative tools, and a shitload of ceramics. check it out!

game idea: Restauración

You keep accidentally rubbing out the faces of masterpiece paintings and have 2 minutes to come up with something before the client gets back

a game called Trolley Probs where you have to make round after round of ethical choices in 3 seconds

thinking about a mobile game called "watch the ads" that just has a button to watch an ad, and a number that goes up by 1 every time you watch an ad

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 :)
