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.
interviewers expect us to implement linked lists on whiteboards because they are fundamental, but not weave or knit programs??? idgi. https://mastodon.social/media/_gpYfKQjzGd_XcxI5mM

please send me your instant pot / pressure cooker faves
haven't touched it in over a year and it's time to slow cook some shiz
starting with... cilantro lime chicken
the 99-cent bunch of cilantro i got at safeway is ENORMOUS so the chicken may not be noticeable anymore by the time everything cooks down

a generation so ironic it had to invent the interjection “real talk,”
I WON AAAAH! Featured as top shot on the NatGeo blog and IG!
• 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
