and yes my idea of chilling out is starring at a strategy puzzle for three minutes and then yelling "OH NO" when I realize it's almost certainly impossible for me to avoid fucking _something_ up

I have been playing Into The Breach a lot lately to chill out and omg, I have not had this much fun with a roguelite since I got into a good swing with Desktop Dungeons a couple years ago!

on the plus side Into The Breach is waay easier (only comparatively) than Desktop Dungeons. I've been mostly enjoying trying out all the mech teams!

I just love so much how good the game is almost all the time at conveying all information to you. the UX is probably the single best part of the game, wow!

I made a new game!! for the "Chess Jam"... wow, chess you can EAT?

uh

anyways play it here skirtdingo.itch.io/intelligent

I'm pretty exhausted rn from working on it over the past week and a half so I don't have more to say yet, but, it's a 0-2 player game and it's the funniest thing I've ever made

in way, game design for me is just an excuse to make menus with 100 different semi-random sfx just so I can please myself by slamming on every button

Hey folks!! It's nearing the end of the month, which means it's time to bump my Patreon again.

It's been a slow month for growth since my productivity's mostly been centered on Meatpunks -- any amount you can give is greatly appreciated!

on basically a whim, I started making a very, very silly game for Chess Jam itch.io/jam/chess-jam if only because my idea made me laugh so hard.

don't wanna say too much since I want to keep it all a surprise BUT... this is my first game with a local two-player mode, and also it still makes me laugh every time I play it. it will be done within the week, for real this time!!

DISCLAIMERS: Vegetable Grower 2 was supposed to be an April fool's joke, but in classic nikki form it's very late cause of mh reasons. oops.

the *real* VG2 is still in development and should be done in a few months. anyways, this only like, 5 minutes long, so enjoy in the meantime!

also, there is no "Vegetable Grower 1", just to be clear (sry if this 'ruins' that joke but I don't want to actually mislead people)

I'm looking for contracting opportunities, and would like to know if the fediverse has any.

My skills: I am familiar with GTK, the Web, Python, Git, free software in general, and much more. I have a BSc, Computer Science. enjoy efficiently computing answers to problems, as well as designing UIs that are instantly familiar to your users. And if pressed I can do *some* graphic design (e.g. my avatar here/Odysseus's app icon).

Please DM me if interested.

And please boost this toot!

still can't believe the shocking reveal today that @HTHR is not a robot. heather is in fact ten robots

so, my gf's car's alternator is fucked. possibly the battery, as well.

$550+ to fix it, which we very much do not have right now.

so if you can spare some cash, we'd really appreciate the help: paypal.me/duckinator

Mattie Brice is here to interview Spindley

First question: what of bad games makes more of an impression

Spindley says it's important that you can imagine yourself making the game you are playing

And there's more range when there's no pressure to live up to anything

Takes more risks, so more ideas you don't normally see
