I love all programming languages. all of them. I love that they exist. I love that they're good at some things, bad at others. I love going over their designs, intentions, and outcomes - and seeing how well they landed with regards to their goals. I love reading their goals. I love seeing history, evolution, and stagnation. I love all of it, and I love using them under their intended mental space. I love using them for things they weren't made for.

It's really frustrating that programming /

Finished Anne Leckie's The Raven Tower today!

So much linguistics in one book. And I just love how she writes non-human characters, and how grounded and (inter)personal the drama (and the politics) is in her stories, and how she always has characters navigating and thinking through gender, presentation, and social roles.

This one has gods, a transman/transmasculine protagonist, a crime drama/mystery, and a war that hinges on very carefully chosen words.

I thought I would share this 1-bit tile-set by KenneyNL over on bird-site.

It's a CC0 licensed #gameassets pack containing 1,024 tiles/items/characters. I love its aesthetics and _will_ be making some things with it.

While looking for stuff on GB Studio I found this other tool called NESmaker.

It's not open-source or free (USD$36 iirc), nor as easy to use, but still seems pretty cool.

Here's a page of demos you can play in your browser:

I have dug up my Raspberry Pi to do something with it, but looks like I need a screen, and HDMI cable, and an SD card reader. Sigh. Better start gathering supplies then...

Today’s project: my first soldering joints! They’re pretty bad, but hopefully good enough for this keyboard to work in the end. :)

@sg that range of simant/simfarm/simcopter etc years of games was something worth postmorteming

Next year they should do a post-mortem on Petz or Creatures or SimAnt or something.

The moment all the GDC talks hit the vault, what was the first thing I watched? One given by a friend, coworker, or someone I admire? One on an important topic I care deeply about? One related to my discipline? No my friends, I made a beeline to the Lemmings post-mortem.
