Apparently Mastodon still likes hashtags so here goes: I'm a who is making an in the genre using graphics in 😄

Damnit... I have a day job and I'm trying to be an indie developer in my spare time... my interest was never supposed to go this far! 😅

Does anyone else out there have this one? Has anyone else even seen the box for the International version on PC before? Seems weirdly rare...

Posting this here as well since not many good photos of this clue book for the iconic Dungeon Master by FTL on the exist online...

Reflecting upon how screwed we in Europe got even before the days of big box PC... just look at this lovely, huge, US release of Archon, compared to the sad little scrap of paper we got over here! 🧐

International Karate 2000 is a great version. The gameplay is different from the original, but very playable! Also retains the lovely Rob Hubbard score... 🥋

I still can't get over how good the screen on the Analogue Pocket is, especially with Gameboy Color games. It almost looks unreal, or like a special effect, because I haven't seen anything like this before. Like VR, pictures doesn't do it justice, you have to see it in person... 🤩

A well known vintage game authority turned out to be a forger. Official announcement from the Big Box PC Game Collectors group: docs.google.com/document/d/1qJ

Ok, seriously... these things don't sell for that amount, right? I mean, sure theirs is in immaculate condition, but still... 😂 😂 😂

Some documentary came up on the birdsite asking people what their first FPS game was, and I posted mine. I think it qualifies within all parameters, but does anyone have an even earlier experience?

However, I also discovered that it's not always wise to try to clear the fog from one's memories. Turns out you couldn't fight the dragon boss on the back of the box and the torches lighting the dark passages didn't look exactly as I remembered... 😆

Recently got a very well preserved copy of my first encounter with the fantasy genre: Swords & Serpents from 1982 for the . It still has the shrink wrap and the original receipt! I'd forgotten how gorgeous the manual was. ⚔️🐉

Also, I uploaded a 18.6mb large file... yet when I downloaded what was served to me the file size was 18.5mb? 🤨

But if this takes off... what will pay for hosting? Do you have to get your own paid account, or pay for your own server? Or will donations be enough?

This was uploaded to test how handles video. 4K and 1440p was not supported but 60fps apparently was! 🌈

So apparently Humble Bundle decided that it would stop supporting macOS and Linux in two weeks, leaving two weeks for people to download their game for those platforms, not getting updates for them anymore, and also shutting down ability to download from the site, forcing you to go through their new Windows only launcher.

So I'll take this opportunity to make a casual reminder that there is nothing humble about humble bundle anymore.

Wait, why does it say GIF in the corner of the video? I uploaded a webm file... 😅
