I wasn't going to participate in Game Makers Iceland's October game jam but I just had an idea I had to try out. >.<

Going through old screenshots (this one is from 2010) on my hard drive and just found the best compliment I've ever gotten about anything I've ever made. (a minecraft creation on a public server in this case)

This brings back memories. Looking through some screenshots from my old unfinished game Aftermath (using the Marathon/Aleph One engine) which was started back in 2000.

Isolation Jam got featured on an episode of the icelandic TV show Landinn on national TV this evening. Segment starts approx 16 minutes in. ruv.is/sjonvarp/spila/landinn/

Going through some of my old Marathon Infinity creations from back in the days. This level and crazy and over the top unbalanced weapons physics model is one of them.

This is what got me into

The fediverse is impressively hungry for anti-harassment tools!

The other day, I released t5.codesections.com/ —a tool to learn who you favorite most. It's a fun tool and spread widely with 30 boosts.

Yesterday, I released mastodon-de-mob.codesections.c As an anti-harassment tool you only use when being actively mobbed, I thought it would be of niche interest.

But instead, it's been boosted nearly 100 times(!), and is still going strong.

@Gargron this might tell you what features people want

Did you know that cats are essentially the opposite of CSS? They self-center within any container.

Changed some textures around in an old game of mine I'm updating for debugging reasons and I must say, I love the new look.

Last year, I got Unreal Tournament '99 and Unrealty running in web browsers. I would love to see more Unreal Engine 1 games on the web. Do you work for a company that owns a UE1 title? Hit me up.

UT99: icculus.org/ut99-emscripten/

Unrealty: unrealty.net/

Accidentally deleted all the e-mails in one of my mail accounts. A part of me is shocked while another part is relieved, for I have reached the ultimate inbox zero.

Recommendation: if you’re buying tickets to Iceland from Wow Air, make sure to buy them using a credit card so you can get a refund if they go under.

(Wow Air is losing money, has limited cash reserves and no assets, and are racing to raise funds before they run out.)

I had forgotten how A E S T H E T I C the good old MacOS 9 wallpapers looked.

Fun Fact, Grinding Gear Games' Path of Exile seems to work flawlessly under Valve's Proton (Steam Play) on Linux.

Still sane exile?

PS: The last battery is brand new, and has only gone through one charge cycle

My Thinkpad T420i decided to die on me. It has eaten through 3 batteries (official) and the last two charge, and report 100% charge and everything A-OK, but if I disconnect the power cable the computer dies. Does anyone have any idea what might be the issue here?

PSA: If any s are traveling around north iceland you are more than welcome to drop by and visit me at @kollafoss Game Farm for a cup of coffee and some gamedev chat.
