I'm going to be taking a look at some more FOSS games over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai/ in about 15 minutes. Tonight's menu: "0 A.D." and "Minetest". Then we'll try to wrap up Broken Lines. See you in the chat!
Slay the Spire daily challenges are sometimes quit silly. Like today's one where you get around 60 rare cards to start out with and it's weird but somehow works out. https://diode.zone/videos/watch/44682a9e-3f49-476a-9334-753d68e68df2
Going to work on that text adventure engine thing I started two weeks ago over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai. Will probably do a bit of refactoring and apply a bit more OOP, and then maybe look into handling output in a more interesting way. See you in the chat!
I'm going to play a bit of Sunless Skies over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai in about 15 minutes. See you in the chat!

I somehow got roped into doing some Company of Heroes 2 over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai in about 10 minutes. I don't remember how to play the game, but maybe we'll figure it out. See you in the chat!
Game recommendation: Code 7
This is my favorite game, so my profile would absolutely not be complete without a mention of it. It is a shame there aren't that many video games striving for this level of accessibility -- but at least we have great exceptions like this one!
In Code 7you play as a hacker trying to save humanity from complete annihilation. Gather information, hack everything, guide your partners through dangerous situations and earn their trust. Beware the AI that REDACTED
It is a text adventure, but with voice-acted dialog and pretty good music. It has autocomplete, subtitles and a mode for blind players.
If you like story-driven games with complex characters and plenty of twists, this might be the right game for you! Episode 0 is free, so how about you find out? :)

It's pretty wild looking at what GPUs are available on online shops. They are pretty much down to low tier or ultra high-tier 2000+€ units and everything else is either weeks long queues or just not available. CPUs still seemed to be in stock, so I guess silicon shortage hasn't hit them too bad yet. Luckily I'm in no rush to upgrade yet.
Going to try and hack together the beginnings of some kind of a text adventure engine over at https://www.twitch.tv/sirsamsai Last time I hacked on one of these it turned out pretty messy, so hopefully this is a bit more tidy.

I made a WarGames reference to @Sirsquid and he didn't get it. I find this hole in his cultural awareness perplexing.
Oh, and as a side-note, I released that little game thing I've been working on livestreams for a few months. It's available for Linux over at https://samsai.itch.io/robot-ricochet. It's not much to look at, but it's free and open source (with assets and for price of nothing), so I guess it's something.
