New folks so...
Hi all! I'm a game developer, a musician, a dad, and a slightly out of touch nerd.
In the day I work at Schell Games. If you have kids, they've probably seen some of my work & they don't know it. You might have too.
At night I make my own games & weird electronic music.
I love everyone I meet but I'm usually too nervous to talk to them. I'll hide if I see you in person, but I'll be hoping you talk to me. :)
If you haven't seen the campaign and are curious... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/miketiv/rad-chess
I'm starting to worry that this campaign is going to fail. I've gone days without a backer and it's really demoralizing.
If you folks wouldn't mind... most of my support comes via birdsite ( I know... ) so if you could check out my professional account there and boost anything you like it'd be much appreciated.
Basic crowdfunding for a new antibiotics + painkiller prescription
Hey, I need $50 for some antibiotics, painkillers, stuff to dress wounds, and tea tree oil as an antiseptic cuz my allergies have moved from 'erm, okay but it hurts?' to 'mosquito bites have made a wrist and bicep swell up, help me, emergency doc!!!' and I'm still fucked and ultra poor with very limited support
Kickstarter campaign update number one featuring this weird-ass gif (CW flashing bright colors) Boosts always welcomed and appreciated.
Just over the 50% mark. It's like Chess but super different! Still plenty of time to get in. Please share.
I tried to post the results of my shader tinkering here but the gifs are either too big or too weird upload.
CW on link: Flashing brightly colored animated gifs...
If you'd like to see it, here's the birdsite thread:
Help I want to work on my game but I'm supposed to be talking to everyone about it! #gamedev
But really the KS goes well so far I guess. thanks for all the boosts and kind words.
I did a really good marketing tweet... I think... I liked it. 😅
Sharing with you fyi:
I flipped the switch and I'm going to bed. This thing is live!
Thanks for all the feedback friends. Boosts greatly appreciated over the next month. 💖
Sadly @craigmaloney the title is limited to 60 characters. Do you think what I've got is too clumsy?
I'm launching a Kickstarter tomorrow. Here's a preview. Any feedback or typo spotting is very much appreciated. 😅
I MADE A THING! I have a little pattern reference notebook that I fill with sketches of patterns and look at when I want inspiration or ideas. People have asked if I'd make a digital version to buy, and here it is!
It's $5 on Etsy and itch.io . Etsy might add VAT depending on where you're buying from, and itch.io has the option to add a tip to the purchase.
I feel really awkward showing up to talk about a project after being dormant for so long. Sorry about that. Truth is I've cut way back on social media because I was hooked on it and I wanted to focus more on attention on family and I'm much happier for it.
It's no exaggeration when I say... you all have no idea how much i miss talking to you regularly.
I'll try to stick around for a bit, but if I vanish again... you'll know why.
I make video games and weird music.
I believe in you.
