Hi, I'm Will! I'm a 19-year-old cute NB trans girl, and I wanna do cool things with games! ✨

Currently I'm a CS/game design student at DigiPen in Redmond. I don't do much besides that at the moment, but I have a few game/writing/music projects on the side that I should dive into one of these days!

I love hanging out on Mastodon and meeting folks with similar interests, or just listening to people talk about their passions! Come say hi, I love making friends c:

My tastes are all over the place, but I generally like games with good stories! I'm a sucker for meta because I'm a dork, but like, what other form of media can do shit like that?

I'm also fond of racing games. I'm a passive car nerd, and I enjoy driving (in real life as well as in games!). I'm not partial to a specific type of racer, as long as it gives me a nice sophisticated set of physics I can learn! (This applies beyond racing games, too!)

unsung heroes of early programming: the many women who, as factory weavers, assembled programs on rope memory.

a generation so ironic it had to invent the interjection “real talk,”

Reminder that
• Pong was not the first computer game
• Pong wasn't even Atari's first arcade game, that was Computer Space, which was a clone Spacewar!
• Pong was also a clone
• Pong's only "first" was being commercially-successful
