Hullo!

I'm Minitrope, a hobbyist gamedev.
I'm interested in:

- 💡
- FOSS games 🕹
- automated game testing ⚙️
- games and gameplays focusing on socialists/communist/anarchist topics 🚩 🏴

I'm currently working on "Hasty Melons" a watermelon racing game 🍉 .
(And hopefully I will manage to work more on this in 2018, so I can publish it 😅).

Looks like an influx of new people on this Mastodon instance lately! (I guess birdsite keeps on messing up their platform)

Welcome y'all! Do post gamedev stuff of all sorts, do discuss, and be nice to each other. This is all. :toot:

Wanted: A genre of games that feel like "dreamcast"

Not like games that would have been on that system (also cool) but instead games that embody the vibe of those words

like somebody went fishing for dreams and pulled out a game, and it's weird and unpolished and pointless and emotional

Dang, I'm pretty proud of this one. It's got a slightly-warped, sepia toned Polaroid quality to it. octodon.social/media/W9DI6TynM

accessibility PSA:

When you use text for emoticons like colon-parentheses, screen reader software isn't a fan. If you use actual emoji characters like 😆 😢, then screen reader software can provide an appropriate meaning or description to the user.

(this reminder is especially for myself, because I always forget.)

The Creation of Tea 🍵
an ▮Aftertile▮ official piece #pixelart

A space ship landed. An alien emerged. "Greetings," it said, "do you have a leader?"
"We have many."
"Then I will wait."
"For what?" people asked. "For us to have one, or none?"
But the alien would not say.

Thinking about Chris Franklin's recent video on the Jurassic Park builder game and it seems like they got the highest level creative decision wrong: any Jurassic Park game should always, always end with total failure (ie the dinosaurs escape and you must evacuate the island), and the sim will always rise to meet and overwhelm any level of player skill. I wish more games were as bold with design / thematic statements like this as they were with story conceits.

On September 28, 2018, I am scheduled for top surgery (double mastectomy). I can only receive the procedure if I have all the funds upfront ON THAT DAY. I need $8,000, and only have raised about $1,200 with less than two months left. Here's my GoFundMe with details on the surgery. Please boost!

Please consider writing your hashtags in upper camelcase so screen readers have a chance at figuring them out.

#whyistayonmastodon sounds like an giant undecipherable mess of sounds.

#WhyIStayOnMastodon reads out "Why I Stay On Mastodon" 😄

(Reason #44 I stay here: my previous requests like this have been generally well-received, proving that most people are awesome.)
