I heard the hot new thing is writing a new intro post.
I make videogames, study math, and frequently write bad posts on the federated social medias. I'm also posting from my island of solitude, moe.neon.moe, so if you're a gamedev, @ me so I can fav your screenshots.

Bummer, didn't really have the drive to participate this time :blobsad: I got a few ideas, but none of them were decent enough to really try implementing. At least there's always next time!

Finally settled on an idea, and slept a bit. Time to start furiously typing in bugs.

Turns out started about an hour ago.

Normally I prepare for like a week, but I guess no warmup this time!

"electron is so great" the programmer said, as my 32GB desktop went into swap due to a music player and 4 chat apps written in electron consuming all of my memory.

Writing is kinda weird (in a good way, I think). Like you don't have to think about the language at all. It's so simple, there isn't really any semantics to worry about.

I think I'm kinda getting the point of it now.

Rewrote the animations, makes a small difference but I think the cat feels a little less ice-skatey now. Now, to sleep.

This really is a delightful takedown of Ready Player One and the entire California Ideology undergirding it.

When societies slide from Horatio Alger to Orphan Annie / Slumdog Millionaire fantasies, it's an oft missed warning sign that the elites themselves have even given up on working things out.

Made a water tap. Cats need water, I think.

As a sidenote, I think I'm getting the cat experience down pretty well: the testing cat makes recording a bit challenging when it's so fascinated by the mouse.

Morning! Turns out you all really like cats. Who would've known? (Woke up to a small pile of notifications)

How I gamedev: using that gif (to which this is a reply) as inspiration and coming up with this, after many tries and lowered standards:
