Pinned toot

The world is a difficult place right now. I can not advocate turning a blind eye to struggles and hardships, but for those who've had an eyefull and need a break, I made a nice little game about cute bees that might make your day a little brighter <3 cheeseness.itch.io/hive-time youtube.com/watch?v=w4M6-zkLN6

I've written a post reflecting on three weeks of prototyping Bonesweeper, and what it's meant for me at a personal level patreon.com/posts/48313302

Also added a gameplay setting that allows the current bone's "shadow" to be highlighted if it can be placed, and implemented Binder (my custom control save/load/config thingy). Running out of stuff to do on this prototype \o/

Added a "showcase" mode where assembled skeletons can be viewed/reviewed along with some info.

In about half an hour, celestina will be streaming some to start a marathon month of sim streams to raise money for the MS Society as part of . twitch.tv/celestinakitty

I was visited by this little walky friend this morning, who was very difficult to get a photo of until we went outside

Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Teach a man to buy fish, and he works for a lifetime.

I also added a little animation that makes flags feel a bit more tactile an makes them visible when playing with no camera tilt

Yesterday, I implemented TTS for the skeleton assembly gameplay - it's possible (and kinda fun) to play without looking. Today, I added a pteranodon, and added some more visual emphasis to numbers adjacent to the currently selected tile in dig mode.

Streaming some more Bonesweeper work - a few misc bits and pieces, maybe some more TTS work, maybe a new "dinosaur" twitch.tv/valiantcheese/

Friends, I am considering submitting to this. I'd love to hear what you think is most wholesome about my little bee game 🐝

I've released a new tool called plus-x, which allows developers on Windows to set executable permissions for their game binaries in order to make them easier to run on Linux or Mac OS. It's small, easy to use, and has a rad logo cheeseness.itch.io/plus-x

Going to stream some more Bonesweeper work, adding TTS to the skeleton assembly phase today twitch.tv/valiantcheese/

I'm going to stream some games for a bit @timkrief 's Daedalus Demise, and Sleeping Panda's Baby Dinosaur Adventure, maybe followed by some dev work twitch.tv/valiantcheese/

Getting pretty close to releasing this thing. If anybody would like to check it out or help with testing, give me a nudge :)

So, after a long and very boring journey, I discovered that getting Python GTK apps installed on Windows machines with simple installers is Not A Thing. I added a tkinter fallback, which is less pretty, but at least is bundled with pretty much every Python install.

I was originally going to say something about flat bottomed clouds making the rocking world go round, but I'm much more fascinated by this cloud with flat sides
