I am a game industry veteran of 19 years. Game programming and game design. I've worked on some really high profile stuff over the years. I love chatting about gamedev and design.
I also started playing guitar some years back. I've gotten pretty decent and am trying to make music now. I am a huge metalhead and can laser target recommendations.
Global warming is going to end human civilization. We've lived through the best of times and it will only get worse.
I propose we start saying "bigot whistle" instead of "dog whistle" because 1) dogs are great and don't deserve to be associated with this and 2) people can't hear dog whistles, but everyone can hear a bigot whistle clear as day.
I further propose the noise at the 7-second mark of this video be the official bigot whistle sound that accompanies any such bigot whistling: https://youtu.be/htTWAMZw6Sk?t=7

This is the most peak liberal bullshit I've ever seen. Asking for oil extraction to be "net zero". This is how they claim they are "good" on the environment.
I hate it so much.
Love to see game industry takes from a person from marketing who "runs" a game company and their credits have absolutely nothing to do with game development and they've never worked at a game studio, yet somehow hold a lot of prestige positions and teaches game stuff at a university.
And ya wonder why the industry is so fucked up.
birdsite link, AI sucks
this is just absolutely perfect:
I think there would be value in organizing related groups of people, but I wish that was part of the platform in a way that didn't require you to organize running your own instance.
So I like the potential, but I don't think it can ever be properly met as-is.
Been quiet lately but have been making good progress. With Unity workflow clicking for me, I've been able to speed forward. I have a data workflow that allows me to define a bunch of game data in google spreadsheets and then export to json for direct import into the game which is going to make tweaking and iteration far quicker. I am also close to being done the first game loop.
It turns out using mind-mapping software (I am using Mindmup) to generate free-form ideas, and then feeding them into flowcharts (using DrawIO) has been absolutely wonderful for helping crystalize design ideas, which I'm then feeding into a clear design doc (Google Docs)
My entire flow works via google drive, and it's surprisingly effective.
Games are for everyone. Make the world a better place or GTFO. Get vaccinated or get bent. Surviving chronic illness. He/him.
