@moshboy oh! There was a take-rocket-to-Mars sim on Atari 800 that made you decide what to bring, and weight and cost was important. You could buy cats, which were useless. But you could buy *negative* amounts! I would fill up on negative cats and float off the Earth with tons of equipment and piles of cash. I still think about all those negative cats.
Kinda feeling like I post on Mastodon only occasionally, and my posts here are almost like condensed versions of things I've been posting about for a week on Twitter. Whatever the one most dominant thing I have to say is.
Anyway, just signing on here today to say: Wow, I do not like Android Studio. Like, I just dislike it very much.
Hey, so I gave a talk at Queerness and Games Conf this weekend on making your own programming language, and it's up on the #QGCon Twitch page!
You can see the slides and the code from the demo here: https://mcclure.github.io/qgcon-2018/
You can watch the talk here:
This is starting in about 15, I think it's streaming here! https://www.twitch.tv/qgcon2
This Sunday 1:15 EST at Queerness and Games Conference 2018 I'm going to be giving a talk! It will be called "Making a Programming Language is Surprisingly Easy and Fun" and I will demo creating a scripting language from scratch and adding it to show how easy it can be. There will be streaming but I'm not sure what the URL is yet. https://qgcon.com/qgcon-2018/talks/making-a-programming-language-is-surprisingly-easy-and-fun/

Like, really it's not so bad, it just means this will be an OK childrens show whereas Avatar transcended being a childrens show. But it's interesting to think about. I wonder about whether the Netflix model is actually bad. Like, Korra was ruined by network restrictions, but maybe this and disenchanted coulda used MORE oversight. More focus.
And if it had aired 1 episode at a time instead of 1 season at a time, maybe someone woulda told them the animation is so hard to watch
