If you're here for the nerdy hacker toys, consider donating to the Black hacker collective I founded with @rekcahdam. And be sure to follow our team accounts @dataparty + @rfparty

Donations made here go to helping us start a Black owned software company.

In return we're building open source linux mobile apps and games and need help getting off the ground so we can make more content and tools.

Experiment: single palette (4 colour) #NES art. Drew in krita, then tidied up in aseprite and NEXXT until he fit into the NES restrictions.

Every 8x8 pixel region of the display has to show one tile from the limited tilemap (top right of image), so it's important to reuse tiles where possible. It's a bit like a jigsaw puzzle where you draw the pieces yourself.. and can reuse the same piece many times #gamedev


Godot Engine gets a free Nintendo Switch port for game devs https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2024/01/godot-engine-gets-a-free-nintendo-switch-port-for-game-devs/

Hrm. So #Godot has a MIT licensed port you can request via the Nintendo dev portal! That's rad!

Though in #GameDev licensing terms, how can they MIT license it? Wouldn't that mean anyone with access could upload it publicly? Which then violates Nintendo NDAs. https://www.rawrlab.com/godot_nintendo_switch_free_port.html

My wife @sabcatsilver, a psychology student, created a card game that helps therapists (and people) talk about grief, end of life care, and perspectives on life.

I am soooooo proud of her!! Currently it鈥檚 a prototype for class, but she may publish it in the future. Thanks to folks who helped on Mastodon! We got it printed on GameCrafter

You know, I really miss Raptr: the service that allowed you to track, compare, and share game achievements and play stats cross-platform. I wish I had something like Letterboxd for games, something I could use to centrally catalog my vast cross-platform game collection, track my backlog, and organize my collection, and also use it to shit-talk achievement comparisons and completion stats with my son.

I'm testing a Steam devcomp which has a Linux depot and a Windows depot, but weirdly, my Steam Deck would download the Windows depot by default.

I asked Steam about this, and they said that only Steam Verified games would download the Linux build by default.

I've been making more use of GDQuest's emacs package this last week and... wow, #GameDev is suddenly a much more pleasant experience. Being able to use tools I'm comfortable with and just open Godot to edit levels or run the game is quite nice.
