Episode 9: What is Spritely?

Learn about the system @cwebber has been working on the last few years to "level up" the decentralized social web!

are there any fedi musicians/producers who would be interested in doing an exchange remix project?

i haven't thought it out in detail but the starting point is the concept of remixing one (or possibly more) of each other's tracks

(boosts welcome)

Gunna start sharing bits of music, because I haven't been touching any game tools.

Working on a library of samples, was trying to get some specific J-pop Yamaha sounds and making something nice, but getting this PlayStaion atmosphere instead.

(also I wrote this little LMMS guide for making stuff without having to know how oscillators and shit work)

Sommerpause ist offiziell vorbei, die Abenteuer in Korvosa gehen weiter.

Episode 16 ist raus "Und wenn Sie nicht gestorben sind, dann.. kommen Sie einfach nochmal vorbei.."

Dieses mal mit der wunderbaren @blubberfrosch als Gastsprecherin!

This is a D&D 5e compatible extension book with a campaign included. It focuses on an afrofantasy setting and is designed by a "majority female, black and queer led core team".

I've had a flick and it looks really nice, and the art is awesome too. The way of picking a character is great, and the enemies are very interesting. It looks like they did a really good job with the design.

Made by these people:

The site for the book is here, though it's very bare bones right now:

At 6:00 UTC tomorrow (in about 6 hours) there will be an interruption of service to do some maintenance to a server rack.

This interruption should affect around 20% of the Mastodon servers hosted on and is estimated that the downtime will be ~15 minutes.

You may follow the progress here:

Sorry for the inconvenience.

There is a FUDGE BUNDLE OF HOLDING folks!!! This is not a drill! Loads of stuff they just now are putting up in PDF plus some great third party indie games! Currently under 30 bucks.

movie "The Wicker Man" (1973) 

Just watched it yesterday and without spoiling I just want to say it made me think a lot.
I'm not sure what the message of this movie shall be.
Its definitely about the christian, conservative establishment vs. the hippie movement and the sexual revolution. (I'm sure this was a big deal in the early 70's.)
But I'm not sure which side the movie takes. Personaly I liked the villagers much more than the police man. No idea if this intentional...

There's people good at playing Super Mario 64 and then there's people who basically have a PhD in Mario 64

Hello, everyone! Just posted my #GameDev news for 5 September 2020, with more website work, game design write-ups and more. Have fun!

I just learned about the , a loose network of public *nix servers that offer all kinds of services for their users and focus on the community aspect. I like the idea a lot. It's like a social network from more simple days, when the internet still was a small place.
Somehow the whole idea remembers me a bit of sdf, but this dosn't seem to be connected at all.

I ask myself if I should try to get an account on one of the servers.

Little Update:
I've solved this problem. Seems like I had multiple versions of java installed on my system (Don't ask me why I did this! xD) and gradle used the wrong jre.
Now I can build apk-file that I can install on a phone... Sadly it crashes a few seconds after starting it. Time for further investigations!
Maybe I should mess around with a simple "hello world" app before I try to port something big like RogueBox Adventures.

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
