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.

video game article 

hey everyone, an article i wrote a while ago for increment magazine on making games using browser technology is now live: check it out if thats your thing!

engine shader (maybe strobe/#DZY) 

writing an exhaust shader, kind of happy with this except for the sharp edges of the cylinder. not sure how to fix that though

The creators of SimCity had a division that made Sim games for corporations, including a game for Chevron called SimRefinery.

For the first time ever: this is the story of Maxis Business Simulations

This is the culmination of four years of research, and I'm so proud to share it 💚

shader question 

How can i get rid of interpolation artifacts in a GLSL fragment shader like this when I draw lines?

if I was making a game engine i would simply make it easy to get an objects position

really wanted to like Industries of Titan but nothing clicked

feel like tower defense + first person shooter is a viable mashup

like.. all assets are signed distance fields, (from bezier sculpt strokes?), which have a point cloud shell computed at 1 pixel/point density, but when you get close up they swap the points out for another layer of point cloud instances to get the great painterly effects

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 :)
