Really excited to announce that the phenomenal David C. Hëvvitt will be joining Hexenkraft to provide music for .

We might have just about the best indie sci-fi game soundtrack :D

You can check out their work here:

Or, obviously, in our game or on our patreon, where some tiers include albums by these talented musicians.

Do you like sci-fi adventure games? Interested in watching an early access game develop into the final version, but hate the idea of paying for something unfinished?
Come check out our early access alpha demo. Regular updates, feedback, and totally free.

If Unreal Engine is "so advanced" why does it still lean so heavily on the archaic FBX, and have so many issues with glTF?

Working on mega-simplifying my Blender work to make up for UE's shortcomings :/

Working on this month's wallpaper assets in @Blender/UE4 and rocking out to Powerwolf.
Gotta keep in that creative energized headspace.

This is also why we're bringing out a deluxe edition *physical* version that will come on an sd card in an actual box (with actual stuff in it, such as a dice game, soundtrack, other cool things)

Because we're gamers, too.

In case people weren't clear on our stance about DRM and cloud gaming...
What Ubisoft is doing here is why we're opposed to it.

Our stance is, you buy one of our games, it's yours to keep or do whatever you like with for as long as you can find a way to keep x64 compatible hardware running.

Due to current events, we're shelving our retro arcade beat'em up game.
I just can't develop anything violent in a time like this. There's just too much violence as there is.

(Smugglers continues on course, it's absolutely not a game focused on violence)

Problem: There's 8 BILLION people and you can't go anywhere without a crowd.

Solution: Stop making single player games, force everyone to play huge multiplayer games.

Could they not? Please?

Our team's first game (from way back in 2018) is now up on Itch!
Come check out GYATM, a "tea-break sized" survival game on Mars.

Everyone on the patreon gets a copy for free as well.

If you leave reviews for indie games you buy, you're the real MVP.

I see the Itch bundle is already bringing out the hate brigades on twitter - and honestly, that's a great reaction.
They'll tweet, share, and boost it far and wide, and every single game in that bundle will have a few less toxic gamers in their communities.

Indie Bundle for Abortion Funds: itch.io/b/1472/indie-bundle-fo items for $10.00 via @itchio

100% of the proceeds pass right through - so many great games for this extremely important cause
(Including some really amazing games like )

Hey there's this amazing bundle on Itch.io right now raising money for the National Network for Abortion Fund's Collective Power Fund.

$10 gets you like, over 700 different games, art assets, soundtracks AND one of those is our album Twelve Months.

Spent a whole afternoon and night working on a multiplayer UI issue.
I'll get it right sooner or later.

"After we reminded GitHub of (a) the pending questions that we'd waited a year for them to answer and (b) of their refusal to join public discussion on the topic, they responded a week later, saying they would not join any public nor private discussion on this matter because “a broader conversation about the ethics of AI-assisted software seemed unlikely to alter your stance”".

To me, this is the biggest reason why #Github must die in a huge ball of fire and leave no traces behind.

They make big profits with FLOSS software, included the code that I've developed and hosted on their platform over the past >10 years.

They don't share any of those profits back with me and other FLOSS developers.

They claim to be on the developers' side, but they offer no chances of appeal nor legal support to developers when a DMCA takedown requests comes in and developers lose months or years of work, often without explanation.

They claim to be the largest FLOSS platform on the planet, but their own source code is not open, and they already refused multiple times to open it up.

They trained their co-pilot with my code and tons of other FLOSS code, when they could have simply used their own codebase, or that of Office/Windows, if they're really in good faith and into the idea of giving back to the world.

And, when we ask them to sit and talk together because we have legitimate concerns (especially around the amount of open-source licenses that the co-pilot violates, since the underlying code isn't Github's intellectual property and licenses must be respected), they behave like jerks and say "well, our conversation won't change your mind anyway [about the fact that we're filthy jerks], so it doesn't even make sense to have it".

Change my mind ABOUT WHAT? It's my f*cking code, intellectual property and licenses that you're talking about, and I'm entitled to decide how you use it, or at least opt out of your programs if I don't like them, you filthy pieces of shit!

If I had ripped your own source code and gave it away for free, with no references nor credits about the original authors, and you asked me for explanations, would I be able to get away with "my explanations aren't going to change your mind anyway, so I don't even want to talk to you"? Or would you unleash your whole army of lawyers against me? So just because individual FLOSS developers can't rely on an army of lawyers like you do we're expected to be your unpaid slaves, you scum of the earth?

These disgusting parasites are still bent on their parent company's embrace-extend-exterminate strategy, nothing has changed since Ballmer's times. But keep in mind that, unlike with Windows, they are NOT the authors of the content on their platform. WE are the authors. If we all pull our code out of Github and move it to Gitlab, Gitee or other solutions, they'll be left with nothing. Let's make sure that this is indeed the case and Github joins the cemetery of evil projects with no added value.
