Wasnโ€™t expecting โ€œReinstall Windows because WSL2 failed to installโ€ to be on my list of activities this weekend.

Maybe Iโ€™ll just nope right back to my Linux drive and ignore that issue for now...

Presented a couple video sessions at work today, and it was fun overall, but wow I really need to get better at cohesive trains of thought. I think I should start making YouTube videos again...

I was hoping the state of the art for cross compiling newer languages to the web with OpenGL/WebGL was better. But I'm coming around to the fact it's not an easily solved problem, and I'm gonna have to do C or C++ and either SDL or Raylib if I want to build for WASM and desktop.

I've been wanting to play around with Zig, and do some lightweight gamedev without having to deal with Windows build tools, toolchains, and hacks.

Installed the most recent Linux Mate on my old Dell XPS, and wooooouww, this is so snappy and lightweight. I forgot life could be like this!

My day off is going well. Appointment I thought was this morning was actually for next week. At least I could get it rescheduled for today at a different office.

So close to finishing my entry, just sound effects and a couple graphics tweaks to go. Didnโ€™t feel like crunching for the Compo.

Also, DOTween is amazing in Unity. I havenโ€™t used it nearly enough in past projects. Iโ€™ve also been leaning heavily on Godotโ€™s Tween node lately on another project. So good.

One of these days Iโ€™ll learn how to take a break after a big project. Not this weekend though, cramming to complete a entry is life.

Today is one of those (many) days where I just have to declare all things web development and infrastructure a complete shit show.

Music hacking and gamedev keeps me sane these days.

I was sitting here tinkering with map generation code, and a spark of inspiration hit me. I now have a decent idea of where to take this prototype and wrap up the core game loop, and this excites me greatly. ๐ŸŽ‰

Made a small amount of progress on the overland of my game today, but Iโ€™m feeling too anxious to fully focus.

Life got in the way of completing Godot Wild Jam, but I've made some great progress with building up a card game framework!

My parentsโ€™ version of Twitter doom scrolling is doom browsing California fires on Inciweb/Calfire.

I was toying with a Godot Wild Jam twin stick shooter dual-worlds thing, but I just can't get into the idea properly.

I've got a backup card game idea that I might follow up with though...
