60 hours in, dying too much and making no progress, with a parent-gamer schedule, hell yeah we're going to tweak the difficulty. Having a great time now 🥳🎮
It’s also okay to install cheats/easy mode mods for single player games. This is how @firstname.lastname@example.org and I are going through Elden Ring!
Name that game for you.
New bug testing company just dropped.
👋 Hi everyone, we're new.
If you've ever wanted a simple but effective, light-weight game testing company based right here in Ontario, then we've got some good news for you.
Looking to fill out our 2023 calendar. Come say hi!
I get that running Docker/VM stuff is really hot but it seems like mega overkill when all I wanna do is execute a build command in Unity.
@email@example.com Ok they walked it back a little, whew https://twitter.com/gitlab/status/1555325376687226883
Of course you can just clone to download the whole history (thanks git) but I would also like to suggest a self-hosted @firstname.lastname@example.org instance can mirror Gitlab/GitHub/etc repos as an ongoing backup.
Oh no, this is worrying. Guess I’m spending some time checking backups tomorrow.
"GitLab plans to automatically delete projects if they've been inactive for a year and are owned by users of its free tier."
Absolutely shocking decision from @email@example.com, I very much hope they reconsider this https://twitter.com/geoffreyhuntley/status/1555023338468438020
These map directly to game dev roles.

Pointing out what I overlooked in this list - QA
First day back after vacation is always a wild one.
I had a fantasy this past week of staying at the cottage indefinitely and working on Krog (or whatever indie project I come up with).
Game dev cottage 🌲💻☀️
Can’t help but think Will would be a great Unity CEO.
Hey all, as promised I wanted to take some time to discuss how I feel things are with #Unity lately. I’ll make a thread of thoughts-as always, if you disagree with something- I’m not gonna try to win you over, your opinion is yours and valid based on your experiences. 🧵
Ok ok one pic to share, behold the Loco Queen, drawn by Rayden Deneault. Can you guess it’s weak spot?
I’m definitely close to just hand writing a simple blog website. At least I know an update to some platform or framework or browser standard or whatever couldn’t break it.
I also wasted a bunch of time trying to set up a Gitlab powered blog with Hugo (doesn’t work) and Hexo (works). Dunno why these are so convoluted compared to just writing HTML/CSS manually, though. Not sure what to do re: dev log but I would definitely prefer to host it myself…
