I spent the past days with playing #hnefatafl on aagenielson.dk . I was a bit afraid that the site could be a nazi shithole because nazis simply throw their dirt on everything connected to the viking age. But it turned out to be a really friendly and welcoming community. The people there simply seem to be happy about every new person hat is interestd in the game.
Hello, everyone! Issue #310 of my #gamedev newsletter is out; a meaty one, that covers everything from classic game retrospectives to current events, with a hardware story and more in-between. Enjoy! https://notimetoplay.org/blog/weekly-links-310.html
Hello, everyone! Issue #309 of my #gamedev newsletter is out, with another release announcement. Then we get a laugh at the book publishing industry, followed by more links of interest. Thanks for checking it out! https://notimetoplay.org/blog/weekly-links-309.html
The last account I reported is no spam! (It only looked like a spam account in fedilab for some reason) I'm sorry for this.
I just watched the latest video by @ChrisWere .
It's about Linux Mint and his workflow on it.
Mint was the distro I started on using Linux and it seems the system seems still to be very solid. Maybe I should give it another look sometimes.
Thank you Chris for this nice video.
It seems that tootle (a Mastodon client for ElementaryOS) is inactive and has one issue bugging people. I was asked to fork a project, but I am sure I won't be able to make it work on my own (and I don't want to make any false promises like I did before).
Please, write if you would like to participate in any way. I would appreciate it a lot. Even if you can't, boost is highly appreciated
Like I've promised yesterday here is v3.0.1 of Roguebox adventures:
I think now I can focus on other things (like the release of my #zxspectrum game) for a few days, before I will start to work on v3.1.0 .
I am very happy with the release of RogueBox Adventures v3.0.0 so far.
I got more feedback/bugreports than ever. I guess this means that people care for the game. 🙂
I'm going to release v3.0.1 today or tomorrow. This release comes with various bugfixes and a minor improvement.
Thanks for everybody who played the game so far!

a lot of these are relevant to gamedev

I'd say it's not just acceptable, but very important to have fiction that lets people explore their fantasies in a safe environment. And the fact that a piece of fiction does that doesn't say anything else about its quality.
There are more and less responsible ways of going about that, of course, but the idea itself is a good one.
Blockchains are like grappling hooks, in that it's extremely cool when you encounter a problem for which they're the right solution, but it happens way too rarely in real life.

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
