I'm Melissa (they/them)! Some of my projects are in my bio, but in general I am and do:
I write. I #webdev. I play way too much Fallen London. I collect tattoos. I will not call posts "toots".
I like learning to be more imaginative in devising solutions to difficult problems. 🎊
It's #loveindies week, so I'll be doing some short streams of indie games the next few nights. I'm focusing on games I own that don't have many Steam reviews to help them get some exposure. Some of them I've never played, so that'll be fun--I'm not the best at new-to-me video games. 😂
The archive is up on hoot.video! https://hoot.video/videos/watch/6bfd7ed0-8e9e-4368-bab2-ecba16159c6a 💃 FMF is such a fun game.
I've posted my Friday night Fallen London stream up on hoot.video: https://hoot.video/videos/watch/175b1779-72cb-48b9-b19e-2238198cc271. I had the joy of relearning Blender video editing for this one, since there was an inappropriate ad on wikia and I didn't have an ad blocker on that Chrome profile. 😳 Lesson learned.
(How long has it been since I edited a video? Apparently since about 2016. Clearly I should be making more trailers for FPG.)
Going live with Fallen London! https://www.twitch.tv/averymd
Barring any day job-related disasters, I'll be streaming Fallen London around 20:00 ET over on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/averymd! Time, the Healer has visited my Seeking Mr. Eaten's Name character, so it's time to get them from SMEN 17 -> 18 and see what's new.
"Your original DevOps person left two years ago.
IT finally got around to terminating their credentials this morning.
Roll 2d6 for how many production services just started throwing errors."
Uploaded my first video to hoot.video, and marked it "explicit" due to cussing. It's cool to see it all blurred out in the listing of recent videos and the warning when it's opened. (Not many other videos are marked explicit!)
Since I'm trying this streaming thing, I'm looking much harder at PeerTube as a storage place for stream archives. But the list of instances on https://joinpeertube.org/en/home/ is uninteresting/bland. Should I just start my own instance for my own stuff? That's much more "tube" than "peer".
Plus, can a bit of programming get videos from twitch to PeerTube? Twitch is very married to YouTube.
I did a little test stream of Fallen London tonight! It's a weird game to stream, but I have a character on an interestingly destructive path, so I decided to give it a go. I also take a very strategic approach to Fallen London that seems unusual. NSFW language, but lots of descriptions about how the game works and what I'm doing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=He09N0RQtGU
Next time, I'll post the actual twitch link when I'm going to stream, but you can follow me at https://www.twitch.tv/averymd! 😍
OMG. We decided to start playing "Full Metal Furies" this morning, and I'm in love. It's *so* cute and charming and well put together. I'm liking the range of femininity in the cast of characters, esp combined with the villains not being misogynist in their opposition. And a whole bunch of other things--I should write a Steam review.
The learning curve is a little steep for me (I'm not very accustomed to controllers and don't play this genre much), but I 💜 Erin. http://cellardoorgames.com/our-games/full-metal-furies/
