hi! something new & inspiring...
all the talks from the Full Indie Summit are online:
youtube.com/user/FullIndie
if you're looking for something inspiring to watch, or listen to while you work, these are all really good.
Here's my talk:
youtube.com/watch?v=Y3J6ksCCaf
mine was about artgames and speaking your truth. It's kind of a 10 year overview of my work and struggling with the "game" label and how we treat artists and should treat artists better.

my friend asked about my birthday and i told them it's in 9 days or something & naturally they ask how old i'll be...
i told them that i'm [REDACTED]
and totally shocked they're like, "holly sh*t! your kidding???" and keep saying "you're kidding..." shaking their head while looking at me...
i don't know if i feel old or flattered 🙃

one thing i will never get used to from going to game events is when someone knows about my work and gets excited to meet me... that is a cool feeling but also i'm supposed to be the one that's shy, not the other way around. if the person talking to me is shy, then what does that make me? confident? no. i don't think so. confidence is too big of a responsibility.

when my bird likes something he pukes on it (he feeds it. he has chosen it as his mate. this is an honor). his puke smells like yogurt and that kinda scares me... like, you're not supposed to like this smell, but do, but it's gross, but then it smells like yogurt, but yogurt is yummy, but this is not... not that i have tried it... nor intend to... not saying that i DO like how it smells... but it does smell like yogurt... ok.

A “10 years of experimental work” retrospective: does being a gamer automatically mean toxic fandom, and can anything be done to break away from that?

~hello internet~
i just published an exciting collection of itch THEMES (custom CSS) for profile pages:
alienmelon.itch.io/themes
would you like your visitors to be trapped in a vortex? an earthquake? maybe you need a very tiny page?
yes? yay! now you can have these things!

my toilet keeps emitting a very loud high pitched electronic beep until i flush and then it starts again after a while. i have the weirdest ghosts.

I wrote an after GDC post about how we view and treat work made by women, and what we can do to change that... as well as my future in that context. If you are a fan of my work, or friend, please read it. It’s important. Signal boosting is also appreciated.
