i dont understand the appeal of smoking whatsoever (pls dont explain it to me)

Dear creators: I *want* to like your games. Is it really part of the appeal to tap the space bar through endless lines of chit-chat before getting to one little nugget of meaningful dialogue, let alone a choice?

Today I deleted *two* visual novels after playing through just a few lines of text. This is definitely not my favorite genre.

I don't understand someone describing themselves as multifandom lmfao. Like how does anyone manage to stay "singlefandom"? Who the hell only has one singular interest that they make their entire brand?

i made a new (old) game 

I was motivated to recreate a shareware game I used to play 25 years ago, with my sister, on a CD-Rom of 100 games for Mac. (system 7?). I don't know the name of that original game but have attempted to implement my own version. it's a resource / survival strategy game like a simplified Oregon Trail game. Plays in the browser, has a pretty good soundtrack!

Twitter is an advertising website with social tools masquerading as a social media website with advertising tools.

The problem with visual novels: when you have to tap a key for every line of text, then each of them has to say something and carry its own weight. That's hard.

Don't forget: You, my friend, should pet a cat.

Anyone know of a good place to find an open-licence template for a forum code of conduct? It's blatantly for my homework.

Hello, everyone! My news for 15 February 2021 are here, with discussion of classic shooters, interactive fiction, and a few words on making money from games. Enjoy!

A young artist is exhibiting his work for the first time.

A well-known art critic is in attendance and approaches the artist to say: “Would you like to hear my opinion on your work?”

The artist: “Yes.”

The critic: “It’s garbage.”

The artist: “I know, but let’s hear it anyway.”

Finally figured out what the deal is with people complaining about a so-called "". They expected to get rich quick and it turned out to not be so easy.

Yo, who lied to you that anyone could make it big? Pro tip: in a gold rush, It's mostly the shovel makers who end up with big money.

After years of efforts and massive investments, VR managed to carve a small niche for itself, and is here to stay. Now its fans are starting to wake up and wonder if it was worth the trouble, not to mention how to keep the flame alive.

Just realized that the old (.com) website no longer exists. I was wondering why they hadn't sent me any referrals in a while. Was still keeping three screenshots in a hidden directory on my site for an entry in their database.

Remember to spread a little joy to those game developers who created something you love.
