This is something I have been working toward, alongside many others, during my entire career at Unity.

It took a lot of "hack weeks," 20% time, and other donated time to get off the ground; it came within a hair's breadth of being terminated multiple times.
We fought to keep it alive, to get it onto the release track, to keep it from being shipped with special license restrictions.

It's great to finally see our work having a public impact.

After a year of learning gamedev, my first commercial game is now available on Steam and for Linux and Windows!

Buy on Steam -

Buy on -

a short game set in southwestern america, my brother lives in a canyon is about two brothers reminiscing over short-wave radios.

This game is also open-source and was entirely developed on Void Linux!

Made with: #godot #blender #krita #gimp #audacity #inkscape

Before you start using Git-LFS in your repo, consider this:

I've been using it not knowing what's the limit and now I get nagging e-mails from Github about exhausting my quota, and the only way to get rid of that is to nuke the Github repository and start over (loosing all issues, stars, watches etc.).
Oh - I can also start paying Github $5/mo forever to rise my quota from 1 to 50 GB.
This sucks!

This is my new card video game "Rue". In this game all players sit around a table, while trying to get the rose.

This project is open-source and an alpha build is available for Windows, Linux and Android.

Check it out:

Good game!

I miss Sweden and ICA on the screenshot immediately sold me the game.

Turned out to be a ~1hour long, very emotional, very sad story.
The story hit close to home in lots of different ways, so instead of a nice little nostalgia pill, I got a full-sized emotional trainwreck.

I really like this simple depth-based "scanner effect" shader when picking up Jammer power-in Polychoron.

BTW, you can play the game right now:

> 'this' argument to member function 'DoThing' has type 'const MyClass', but function is not marked const

🤔 Gee, clang, what do you think you should do here…?

Why do s always say "add to your wishlist on Steam" and never "add to your wishlist on"?

One reason: doesn't HAVE an "add to your wishlist" button. If you think it should, consider 👍 this issue:

Lovewood is now available for free on! There are versions for Windows, Linux, macOS and Android. Maybe give it a try and tell me what you think?

It feels great to at last reveal what I've been working on in the past 2+ years :)
Really proud of being part of this!

*Shameless Self Promotion*

Been working on this for... over a year now? Finally able to announce "Rollers of the Realm: Reunion". Our studio's second, and follow up, Pinball RPG. Now we just have to finish it! :)

Pretty excited about some of the new mechanics in this one, and just general cleanup from our first take on the genre.

We are looking for software developers!

If you live in or would like to relocate to Germany, it might be for you.

We do mostly JS w/ types and Java but also a lot of other things.

There's a lot of freedom and we don't suck.

You can write GPL code for a living!

boosts welcome!

I'm pretty surprised that they encoded off-by-one into the syntax of C# 8's index-from-end expressions

An bundle with games from queer creators. Looks to be some Very Good Stuff in there!

There's also an incoming bundle to support Palestine, but that's not online yet.

The Garden Path is making its official announcement!

So proud to see how far it's come over the last years.

Check out the trailer and links below to learn more about the game and where I'll be taking it.

Every time I consider blogging about something, I always end up at "Meh, probably nobody cares."

Maybe next time, I should take the Julia Evans approach:

Remembering when we had this physical build monitor mounted in the dev office

Another day using git rebase, another day reading the docs for git rebase

There is a bundle for Palestinian aid taking submissions for games to be distributed through

If you're a #gamedev consider submitting!

Very cool to see a non-trivial and polished game being developed entirely in Rust! Makes me want to resume my work on my own Rust game+engine...if only I had enough time and ideas right now.
