We welcome developers of all skill levels, whether you're new and want to make your first game or a veteran who's been grinding at a long-term project, to join O2A2! Make a 1k-long VN using 1 sprite, 1 BG, 1 song, etc. Low pressure, anti-crunch, non-competitive, what's not to love?

#Introductions

Quick intro while I get settled here:

I'm Dana! I make games, pixel art, lowpoly models, FM tracker tunes, tasty food, and even physical gadgets and web tools. I share projects, and occasionally shitpost, so lets be pals if that's your thing.

ALSO:
I got various games and jams and such over here:

Currently reading "Writing for games theory and practice" by Hannah Ricklin. It's really good. It doesn't just dive into plot but talks about the realities of game writing and processes. Recommended to non narrative devs too as I think it explains the job wonderfully. So much of the job can be explaining what it is.
There's even a section recommending what functionality your tools need.

As part of the Indiepocalypse Pledge Drive this year, I'm attempting to put on one of your Video Game Showcases, but on that highlights the grimiest, messiest, unfunded, unmarketable, yet downright unmissable games the medium has to offer.

I've hastily (and tentatively) title it The Sicko Showcase and submissions are open to any game really.

Issue 28 of Indiepocalypse, the indie game anthology I run came out today. It features games from 10 developers, including 1 newly commissioned game.

Not only only is it a great way for you to find new indie devs but the devs also get paid up front and in royalties.

I'd love it if you checked it out!

Your tamagotchi just hatched! However, it looks like he's already at the adult stage and comes with some emotional baggage...

A Spell animation I did for the game Duelyst. Sadly, Duelyst is not online anymore,, but there is a community effort to revive it. #PixelArt #MastoArt #art

Hi, I'm Andrew. I created and run the monthly indie game anthology, Indiepocalypse.

Each month I curate games from 10 developers (1 being newly commissioned) and sell the issues to promote shorter, weirder, alternative games and to pay the devs.

I've been doing it for over 2 years!
