"every run is very slightly different!"
Anyway, indie games are the only future video games have.
I'm starting the feel like social and business structures that become a certain size are no longer viable and effective structures, and that this might be a problem that can be delayed with good management skills, but can never be stopped due to the sheer volume of managers who will inevitably lack those skills.
i would like to make a correction to this toot
at the time of publishing, i stated "curate your feed or stop whining"
i deeply apologize for this injustice
what i should have said was "curate your feed and also stop whining"

re: barriers to gamedev and privilege
No matter what future I may succeed or fail to build for myself, can I really claim that I built anything given the sheer weight of privilege that gave me the spare time and energy to do what I've done?
barriers to gamedev and privilege
It is not lost on me that the only reason I've been able to make as much progress on my personal projects as I have is that despite perilous financial circumstances prior and immediately after my current temporary work contract; in this moment I am working a cushy job with plenty of downtime.
I still have a significant barrier to indie game development as a career because I either need to learn to compose music or have enough spare money to hire a composer for one shot at maybe making enough money to do it again. Sometimes it feels insurmountable. But I'm already past several barriers of similar magnitude many people who are not white straight-passing men will have significantly more difficulty navigating.
on one hand, i got two hours of sleep
on the other hand, i conceptualized a battle system for a RPG while laying in bed trying to sleep
I'm here because I couldn't stop posting.
