Trans Fucking Rage Jam 2022 

Originally started making this eldritch werewolf game for itch.io/jam/transrage but it looks like there’ll be another so I might just revive it then :bunhop:

maybe if I compress it down to a noncomplex IF, except it’s currently done in gruescript which necessitates a certain layer of game complexity and I don’t really want to extricate the writing :blobcatumm:

really should finish my trans eldritch werewolf game but the jam it was written for ended so the motivation is not there, at least until the next time I personally turn into a trans eldritch werewolf

there are some good critiques but people on twt talking about how unusable Mastodon is I think may have been slightly brain-poisoned by only being on One Website for so long that they can't really conceive of being on multiple. anyway I keep asking people to come back to Dreamwidth with me but they never listen

Show thread

honestly have been feeling suffocated by the way centralized social media turns you into a Brand, coupled with the fact that I've divorced my online identity from my IRL identity nearly completely because being openly trans or leftist in my current sector of tech could be a career ender if I'm not cautious

I still firmly believe we need to reclaim web 1.0 and the good bits of 2.0; build a website, write a blog, follow each others’ RSS feeds, and help each other to do so

Show thread

I really want to emphasize again that technologies like banner exchanges, webrings, blogrolls and links pages didn't die off because people just stopped using them - they were, and are, a good idea and a great, low- or no-cost way for small hobby websites and communities to find each other and form connections.

They didn't fall out of favour because of changing times. They were deliberately hobbled or bought up and killed off by power-seeking corporations, because they were hard to monetize.
