What is gamemaking.social?

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 :)

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

Rules and Expected Conduct

  • I (and any other admins or moderators who may be added later) will do my best to provide a place where people can feel comfortable and not harrassed. However I can not guarantee a safespace.
  • To do this I expect that people use content warnings following the usual Mastodon etiquette, for example for politics, 'adult' content, eye contact, ... if in doubt ask first please!
  • I frequently check the local and federated timelines to make sure the rules are kept to, and block and silence instances who do not meet my expectations.
  • There is no tolerance for harrassment or discrimination of any kind, directly or indirectly.
  • Respect each others' privacy choices.
  • Please remember that the Anglophone web is not the USA, and that others will have different cultural expectations and practices. Let's all respect each others'.
  • Always remember that we're here to encourage and support each other, and hopefully make pals (and make videogames less bad)!
  • If you make an account that's just for promoting your game without any interesting in engaging with other people (IE SPAM) I will probably delete it.

  • In the event of me wanting to abandon woning this instance I will happily pass it on to a new admin :)
