Accidentally read an interview with Alan Kay so of course I'm depressed about the current state of our software.

You should read it all the same: fastcompany.com/40435064/what-

Maybe I can channel this into motivation to finish that talk proposal about how to make systems that are internally reprogrammable.

So, apparently, it's not cool to just put your xmas gifts under the tree in their Amazon shipping boxes.

Put some old free stuff on itch as well as something new, this Quake 1 tourism mod that re-scores the game with NIN's Ghosts I-IV album: jp.itch.io/quake-ghosts Stream I did yesterday talking about the game's level design and dev history: youtube.com/watch?v=whIQCKDlx-

My son just told me. "Curiosity killed the cat. Specifically, Schrödinger's cat."

Let's try some "we'll probably make it through 2017" gifts.

Do you need a book, a course, an app, a workshop, github account, hosting, or something else that would help you?

Something in $50-$100 range; ping me (direct message or email "aras at nesnausk dot org") and I'll try to do it!

I'm looking for a full-time job. 10+ years work experience in graphics, pathtracing (CPU/GPU), light baking, C++.. Would love something with a slant of R&D. Preferably locally in Gothenburg, but always open to interesting suggestions. DM or LinkedIn (linkedin.com/in/andersjakoblin). Since this is my first post here this might also serve as my introduction :)

@aras they handled this product so poorly. I once tried to apply for source code/plugin access -- they had me come to their office, meet with guys, fill out a bunch of paperwork, CV, media from projects I'd worked on in the past... then they just stopped talking to me. Huge waste of my time.

This was after I'd already donated code fixes and many bug reports on their forums.

Autodesk sucks. I hope they get out of the creative media space ASAP -- they've been a long-lived poison and need to go.

Hi everyone, I'm happy to announce that I have founded a VR game studio, in collaboration with luminous beings who appear above my bed at night. For the forseeable future I'm going to be working on making ~~something incredible~~ for VR fulltime.

The studio is named Mermaid Heavy Industries, and you can find the website at mermaid.industries . I'll be posting preview media at this account: @mermaidindustries and RTing it here.

I hope that I am able to show you something incredible.

One thing I'd really like to do this weekend or over the holiday is make jp.itch.io a much more definitive library of my independent work: put up all my old prototypes, Doom mods, and other stuff. Mods will be 100% free, other stuff might be free-or-pay-what-you-want. Also a new Quake 1 mod I made recently.
Has anyone done mods of retail games on itch? I'd like to make the UX as good as I can within platform limits.

Lumo on Switch has outsold Xbone lifetime in a couple of weeks.

To put that in perspective, Xbone lifetime was depressingly low. That's one fucked store.
