Finally managed to dig up an old article on Christmas I really liked. Little late, but whatever. XD
Purity is for the dead. Ideological Purity, even more so.
Actually, here. Lets have this conversation - how would you define Capitalism? A particular kind of market economy, any market economy, a culture, an ideology...? :/
Hey, for those of you who are trans, how common is trying to keep the first letter of your name the same? Just curious. XD
Well. This is interesting. It's a collection of ads that russia put on Facebook to influence Americans. Contrary to what you might think, it's less about backing Trump, and more about backing the culture wars... :/
Hey all. So I was talking to @sivy about mastodon instances and their size, and he went and put this together: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12lHudYKqZydnlK1F445tWvbIC5kWdgXrtQ1oz4TAnKo/edit#gid=0
And sure enough, mastodon instances follow Zipf's law pretty damn closely... XD
I'm sitting at a bus stop with a cute girl. Should I ask her out, Y/N? :/
Hmm. So I may have chewed up and eaten a bit of tinfoil yesterday. Am I gonna die? Please advise. :/
Can I just have the entirety of mastodon.art injected directly to my frontal love? That would he very convenient, thank you. XD
Me, when I see all the new people in my timeline: "IT CONTINUES...!"
"Looking forward, Howe inferred, much like the G.I.’s, Millennials will have to deal with a great conflict, but theirs will be a culture war."
Well thats optimistic. :/
Huh. Just read Scott Alexanders book review for Seeing Like a State. All of a sudden I have a whole new appreciation of anarchist thought. :/
tfw you every game is either boring or productivity destroyingly addictive. :/
Huh. Went and dug up an old demo for my temple of the elements game. Not quite a game yet, but it should give you a vague idea of what I was going for with the thing. XD
Ugh. Been super tired lately and I don't know why. :/
Gamedev, Decisions Show more
I have a couple of games I could work on, and I wanna finish one of them. Not sure which one though. Their names are The Temple of the Elements and Crovasshun, Tales of Blood and Steel. Both are dungeon crawly things, but one of them has you as a single adventurer going through a dungeon in real time, getting drops, levelling up, and generally trying to minmax so you can beat the boss, while the other has you leading a team of adventurers in tactical (semi)turn based combat, like in XCom. Any thoughts on which I should focus on? :/
Game Screenshots, The Temple of the Elements. Show more
Heres an old game I haven't worked on for a while. It's called The Temple of the Elements. It's kind of like a cross between the Binding of Isaac, Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup, and Diablo 2. Basically, theres a dungeon, you fight stuff, get treasure, level up, and eventually fight a final boss. Of note, though, one of the big themes of the game is short term vs long term investment. If you invest too much in the long term, then you die and it all goes to waste, while if you invest too much in the short term, you'll lose out on long term power.
