It happened! Explomancer 0.0.1, the first pre-alpha build, has escaped onto Itch.io for Windows, Linux, and MacOS!

Pre-alpha series will be free until it's good enough to not be free.

So is FreeNAS still the way to go for a home NAS setup?

Relaxing at my local, drinking good beer and reading a fun book. Small pleasures.

Today is my America-versary. 17 years since I moved here from England.

It's been quite an adventure so far!

Also accurate with regards to being an indie game dev:

Lots of math today. Because of course I'd design and build a bookcase with shelves at a jaunty angle.

:blobpats:

Time to waste the rest of the day playing Factorio, maybe.
