I tihng Id' love t osee in more tools are non-hacky templates. Like, so most of the stuff is all setup and we can plonk in models and images and sounds and play the thing.

(not!)game jam idea: tutorials

pick a tool, make a tutorial, try out other people's tutorials and give them feedback, revise your tutorial based on feedback, share with the world

tutorials that /inspire/ but do not /require/ creativity - like the games in mboffin.itch.io/gamedev-with-p with suggested graphics the reader can replace and code clear enough to modify in interesting ways

the world deserves more tutorials that get people into using tools and maybe a jam would be a way to make some

this rose out of my weird tools games class, where we have been talking about walled gardens, the politics and aesthetics that tools carry with them, the edges of “tool” and where it intersects with “game” or “playful media” and how much a tool can say about its maker

(but i also thought this resource might be particularly useful now ~)

Looks like blender's equidistant panoramic camera gives me results closest to the way I naturally draw in perspective #blender #gamedev
