I build my own Linux distribution using simple #bash script. Now I can start making (simple) games for it. Because it badly needs black-jack and hookers ;)

@themightyglider yes; I tried LFS before and filed, Arch Linux is too easy and it's nothing special in the end; But this! this is nice as I learn BASH scripts and Linux at the same time :)


Why did you use Linux 3.16 and not 4.x? Is it easier to work with this?

@themightyglider I wanted to start wit simple thing and 3.16 is supported till 2020 :) Then I will experimented with other kernels but I really don't see any differences so far. But I think I can make an option in the menu to choose from if it will be working fine.

With ncurses included you maybe would be able to compile a simple roguelike on your system. :)

Hi! I hope Game Making Social is a cosey, 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 players most welcome! Unless you're a jerk!!

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 :)

Oi there's also a forum at forums.gamemaking.social.

PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
