Today is a woodshop and game dev kind of day

Which is a good kind of day

Feels like time to do a re- #introduction! Name is Robin. I'm a #gamedev (most known for AER Memories of Old). I've headed a game studio for 7 years, doing everything, but mostly game design, business, project lead and story writing.

I enjoy #philosophy, #politics and structure building based on strong fundaments and #humanism.

I like#cats, I cook #food, try to eat #vegetarian, #read a lot, try to #write, practice #aikido.

Pleased to meet all new ones!

Languages: πŸ‡ΈπŸ‡ͺ πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ and a little πŸ‡―πŸ‡΅
#intro

Recently launched a new website to put my stuff on. Looking to embrace the open web, and happy to link to other people's websites and projects! You can find my site here: mjb.im/

In it, I have also started posting the output of my goal to play and review indie games. I'll cross post those links here as well.

It's usually pretty rare that I'm playing a non-nintendo AAA game these days, but since getting a PS4, I've been doing it more often. They have their place, but they really are huge undertakings that I almost never finish now.

I'm in a pseudo-depressive post-game-complete state after finishing Red Dead Redemption 2. My partner and I enjoyed it so dang much, and I could potentially still play the post-credits stuff, but it's just not the same.

Next up on my AAA list is God of War, so maybe that'll take off the sting a bit, but I will really miss RDR2.

The spoofed number spam calls are on hyper-overdrive today

When you fuck up flipping a quesadilla but it's okay cuz now you get some crispy cheese edges

If you don't have 10 things that fit this description, congratulations on reaching total enlightenment.

It's a new year. Discard or donate 10 things you didn't use or hardly used last year.

Dissenting opinion 

Hello tootstream, I was missing a good mastodon cli

Went off and played torcado.itch.io/homerun-bun - just taking a pause to say you should too. Polished, well animated little ball-juggling arcade game. Huge dopamine bursts when you get a great volley πŸ‘

And yknow what? I took today off, I'm going to start right now!

2019 resolution: Buy, play and leave useful feedback for a new-to-me (really) indie game at least once a week. Emphasis on buy - I want to give the developer compensation for their work, even if they list it as pay-what-you-want.

This feels like a tangible, trackable and positive goal.

There is so much I can do with the dumb and hopefully pretty unique concept for this side project game. I get so excited thinking about ways to build on the one concept. Excited to be ready to share.

The littlest bit of coding done today but long overdue errands taking over. Feels like things have been slowly slipping out of focus so it's nice to get a chance to handle being a person.

Being really tired, then getting excited about possibly falling asleep early, bringing on a surge of adrenaline, keeping you up later than if you didn't try going to bed in the first place

Aaaaand right as I hit post, a package is delivered

Behavior reinforced

I usually only get phone calls when a food delivery is here, so now my dog comes running when my phone rings because he thinks I'm going to open the door
