I'm Dave. Any pronouns OK.

I'm making an open-galaxy action/exploration game called Pan Galactic Railway about piloting the only space train in the universe. Check out spacetrain.space for details.

I've lived in Japan for 4 years now, but my Japanese is garbage. I love it here a lot, though.

I'm into games, illustration, and music with weird sounds.

stayed up late to finish outer wilds last night, and yeah. dang. that's a hell of a game

There’s a shoe store closing at the mall in a few days, so almost all the stock is gone and it’s a great opportunity to see the least desirable shoes in the world. Only the truly awful ones are left now. Just absolute disasters

Did you watch that Sonic Movie trailer and wish there was a videogame tie-in? Well, has started, and there's a whole month to make your vision of whatever the Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie the Game would be!

I'm releasing new music next Tuesday! My folky/spacey four-song OST from Ecoverse, a game about ecological restoration. Made in partnership this winter with Girls Make Games & designed by Dakota, a 14 y/o game designer from California.

This one's called "Spacewalk". ☄️🌌🌍✨🎶

This town ain't big enough for the both of us, partner. We've gotta build more town, it can't fit two adults and that's baffling to me. This town dummy small.

Please, "he" was my father's pronoun! Call me "them"

Apple's hardware aesthetics have an almost terraforming effect: the sleek MacBook makes the rest of your desk look cluttered and irregular, their stores feel like alien temples you must assimilate into the customs of. I would like technology to feel more like going down to a local co-op hardware store where a lesbian sells you a hammer you will own for 30 years.

update: I changed my bio from "all pronouns" to "they/he" to express a preference but allow for what most people are gonna call me anyway (which is fine)

that's all, carry on

Big Bang Theory finale spoilers 

I hope the final episode of GoT is just George R.R. Martin reading an excerpt from winds of winter while the cast gets drunk in the background and occasionally flips off the audience

Seen at my local mall, apparently done by a high schooler. Whoever did this, fantastic work.

They say players never read text, but my pet theory is that they only read on loading screens. Which implies that if you really need to get that steaming lore dump into the player's brain all you need to do is make your loading times long enough. Please fund my study.
