If you download an indie game for free and you end up enjoying it, consider sending a tip to the developer, if they take them. Just send what you think it's worth. Making a video game, even a very simple one, is very difficult and time-consuming. Be a part of making someone's dream come true.

A group of students decided to spend 3 months making a game engine, and write a blog about it:

The blog has a lot of technical details about various topics.

My little #Twitch overlay chat game experiment (#godotengine) is slowly reaching a "works-for-me pre-alpha" state. I'm trying to figure out where to take it from here / if it's worth refining or offering for download (or sale *gasp*) somewhere.

📢 Anybody here with a typical concurrent viewer count of 10+ willing to test-drive it in their stream?

- cyberpunk-ish/fantasy themed
- a "chat supported team duel"
- takes about 100px on the bottom of the screen
- low-interactivity (people in chat *can* control it, but you don't have to)
- one match usually takes about 10min, so it might be a fit for your Stream Starting or Pause screens, if you don't want to run it the whole time (which I totally understand)

Writing teacher: Show, don't tell.
Screenwriter: Not a problem.
Cop, into walkie talkie: Sir?'d better see this.
Detective: Can't you just tell me what it is over the radio?
Cop: Absolutely not.

What the fuck is happening to my recommendations?

Michael Jackson visited me in my dreams last night. He was surprisingly normal, and talkative. One funny thing is that I tried to talk about which songs of his I liked, and he kind of got awkward, because he didn't like getting showered with praise that much.

I did joke about whether this was Thriller, and he was a zombie, given that he passed away many years ago. He laughed and said no, he just exists in spirit now.

I get visited by a lot of celebrities in my dreams. Steve Jobs once got mad at me for having a Hackintosh and no macs. Donald Trump keeps inviting me to eat at his space mansion, where he orders Dominoes pizza for his entire family. I asked Bill Gates about what it was like to be so rich, and be just smiled and shrugged.

I met Satan once, he was hot and had a great sense of humor. I met my subconscious once, and he was Amish.

"You will have a child like no other," declared the witch, to the hopeful couple.

"Will they have magic, strength or wisdom?"

"A heroic destiny?"

The witch asked, "Will they need to, to be loved?"

"No," the pair agreed.

"What if they're plain, small or simple?"

They held each other tight, "We'd surely still love them, as long and best we can... Is that what'll make our child unique?"

"No, that fact that it's yours to experience will."

Two satellite photos. On the left, what that island near Tonga looked like right before the eruption.

On the right, what it looks like now.

What if we put A Cyberdemon's head on top of Mario's body! 

It'd look something... like this!

The bugs currently have no input, it is based entirely on how successful they are (fitness value) calculated from data the emit once they die - how close to the goal they are, time left on their internal timer (2s), and if they touch the goal

I may do it a second time around with raycasting (or some other map awereness) to see what happens

For those curious for what it looks like to begin with (for comparason), here is a recording (up to gen 21):

One of the greatest mistakes that modern society has made is forgetting that "question everything" means "QUESTION EVERYTHING." And yes, that means questioning yourself.
