My new Python 3 version of Robot Finds Kitten is now online, complete with shitty code and an original .nki file!

The FOSS community should gather together all the different public domain universes(Lovecraft, Robin Hood, Dracula, all the pulp/noir characters, etc) and build some sort of dope expanded franchise/universe of free & open source games/movies/books/TV/other cool stuff.

Come on, you know you want this to happen :D

Created a account as I'd like to have my projects available on more alternative git hosting services in the future, especially considering I'm a minor without much control over my own money and won't be able to pay for my account (when it enters beta, ofc) until I'm an adult.

Not getting any coding done because GitHub is down? Why not take the opportunity to check out Codeberg (codeberg.org/), Gitea (gitea.com/) or GitLab (about.gitlab.com/install/)

Tired: Learning C to write software.
Wired: Learning C to edit some game mechanics in Brogue which feel like they undercut the game's soul.

Been on the mood for more pixel art lately, I'm thinking of doing screens of fictional old school fantasy games

@jameschip to me, python is a great example of a somewhat pooly designed tool that still happens to be the best tool for a lot of jobs, just because it has a big library ecosystem. But I'd love to be proven wrong on that

Currently trying to find some sort of gothic/classical/calligraphic font that's sharp looking enough to blend in well with a high-tech brutalist sci-fi aesthetic 🤔

youtube.com/watch?v=XNPMYRlvyS too many jokes about boomers being lead poisoned, not enough about whatever the fuck this is

I enjoy making these mock-ups of semi-passive incremental games with some sort of story motif.

This most recent one is about following the adventures of your own personal cryptid investigator as they improve their skills researching and tracking obscure and then eventually well-known cryptids.

google antitrust filing thread from @fasterthanlime@twitter.com 

RT Lock (with permission):

Ok so, I just read through all 173 pages of the unredacted Google antitrust filing and I have to say that either Google is screwed or society is screwed, we'll find out which.

Unordered list of fun things I learned:

- google has a secret deal with facebook called "Jedi Blue" that they knew was so illegal that it has a whole section describing how they'll cover for each other if anyone finds out
- google appears to have a team called gTrade that is wholly dedicated to ad market manipulation
- Google had a plan called "Project NERA" to turn the web into a walled garden they called "Not Owned But Operated". A core component of this was the forced logins to the chrome browser you've probably experienced (surprise!)
- Google is willing to do almost everything to prevent people from circumventing their ad exchanges
- This is what AMP is about
- Google habitually insider trades on their ad exchanges in every way you can think of and every way you can't. Too many ways to list here.
- The exchanges are also rigged so that google wins on bids where they aren't the highest bidder.
- A large amount of people inside google are aware of all of this
- If Google ever tells you some change will increase your ad yield, run. In fact anything they tell you is a lie
- Google has worked with Facebook and Microsoft to discourage them from increasing user privacy, lamenting occasions where they prioritized their reputation over their collective business interest

today is a good day to figure out how to use the AnimationTree node in Godot while listening to random emo songs from the mid '00s 🤍

My gamedev brother apparently just got messaged by some rando who wants to have him work on an "NFT-based video game" despite not really bringing up what they want him to do or if he's getting paid, lol

I've made an alternative frontend to Medium:

If you, like me, are occasionally forced to read articles on medium.com, now you can read them on Scribe instead! Feedback welcome.

I will not elaborate further.

Hey everyone,

I'm currently writing a coming out letter to a set of conservative christian parents. Does anyone here have any good trans links/resources that wouldn't alienate them as hard as the ones I've found with a quick DuckDuckGo search?

Electronic Arts print ad from 1983 asking if a computer can make a person cry, and a King's Quest 4 print ad from 1988 proclaiming that the game did make people cry. Both are certainly possible, and I'm sure both EA and King's Quest 4 did make people cry, but for different reasons.
