#introduction 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.
My #roguelike for the #zxspectrum is almost finnished. I've added a couple of items to make the game more varied. Furthermore I've added some special abilities for the monsters.
My last change was to add an examination mode, where you can check out what things are surrounding you.
Only a good name for the game isn't found yet.
Identifying if a point lies within a complex polygon (self overlaping)
After an evening struggling to get the even-odd algorithm working with edge cases I come across the winding algorithm! Hallelujah!!!
Far more robust, and once you break down the approach to determining if a point is to the left or right of an edge it becomes dead simple to implement.
I found a GREAT description of the algo at http://geomalgorithms.com/a03-_inclusion.html
Finally properly uninstall Gnu IMP and replaced it with #Glimpse
finished a bitsy game for the first time in months, and it's only one room
enjoy your stay at hotel ℕ!!
VR game where you're in an office and your secretary is telling you some gentlemen are here to see you and you're frantically trying to shred papers with your clumsy VR hands and your wife keeps calling and she's like "Harold, there's men at the door" and you keep shredding away "they say they're from the FBI" shredding noises "They're going through your office" shredding *pounding knocks on door* shred shred *wife crying on speaker phone *shred shred*
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
