I made some music! It's HEAVILY influenced by the SNES era RPGs, and it will be featured in my upcoming platformer /home/.wares (name subject to change)...
My gamedev #bookshelf, part 1:
Art of Game Design
by Jesse Schell
Many, many good insights from a seasoned game developer for all kinds of game designers. Schell examines games through different lenses (e.g. Lens of Surprise: what will surprise players when they play my game?) - and there are 113 of them! For future reference, lenses have also their own companion app. I've only gone through a 1/4 of the book, but it seems already very comprehensible. A must read.
Currently I'm world-building my next still-unnamed platformer.
Some characters have already surfaced...

Halou gamedevs and!
Wish you all a productive week.
