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!!

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!
  • 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)!
