hi gamemaking.social 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.

anyway think i'm going to start working on a game for literal babies

well due to some Godot iOS issue that didn't show up in Xcode builds I'm unable to get IdleMatcher onto the app store. Kind of a downer, it's been 6 moths of work and now i'm just sitting on it

Speaking of doomed software, have this utterly indescribable promotional video for Flaii, from 2009 youtube.com/watch?v=dmEtTy_7Oz

Idle Matcher submitted for review in both app stores, jesus what a nightmare

omg releasing a game for mobile platforms is literally hell I'm in literal hell

one of my long standing game ideas is basically like, an impressionist painter MMO, where you show up in some picturesque town and everyone is running around buying art supplies and finding vantage points to do plein air paintings from. And you can only afford the worst art supplies but you can sell your paintings to NPCs or other players and buy better paint colors and supplies

pencils down! Been working on Idle Matcher for 4 months now, calling it done apart from getting builds together for the app stores.

my game soko is complete featuring a bunch of goodies like generative music! you can check it out here: equaspace.itch.io/soko

I'm about half way through my submission.

The crafting is done, now time for the space combat!

snake but the playing field is the control room for a larger snake and the apples are commands to turn it

My kid is having fun making 14x16 pixel Apple II tile art. Lots of neat little objects.

basically just doing sound / menu / intro stuff for idlematcher but it's been really hard to get in the chair this week

i've tagged out 600+ open source, experimental and tiny tools by their qualities and built a new website for sorting through them!

these are all tools towards joyful digital creation, with the goal of enabling working entirely outside of proprietary systems- moving instead from one hand-made software to another.

(the list takes submissions if it is missing yours >:))

do a couple looptobers and you'll be set for game music for the rest of your life :lsd_face2:
