My little gamedev experimentation was definitely a mental health haven for me, during the early-mid pandemic years.

Here's another one, where you shoot vaccines at virus snowflakes as they drift down the screen.

This on is keyboard controlled.

Reminded of this game I made, based on a dream I woke up from.

In the game, you have to smash all the covid virus particles before they multiply out of control.

At higher game levels, a giant orange blob starts bouncing around and steals your medicine.

It was fun to build, and helped me deal with the stress and anxieties of that time....which aren't completely over yet, but much better.

Last week I didn't participate in the #WCCChallenge, but I did fall down a bit of a #CreativeCoding rabbit hole. I made a fork of a really cool optical illusion sketch by @fractalkitty, and got a bit carried away making everything as mind-bending, efficient, and smoothly interactive (on PC and mobile) as I could. I've always been a fan of optical illusions and Op Art, so it will be a fun challenge to add more to the collection over time. 18 to start!

Rotating snakes is a peripheral drift type of optical illusion, developed by Professor Akiyoshi Kitaoka in 2003
Metamere's twisted cord spiral, based on Fraser's original illusion. The concentric rings of twisted cord appear to spiral into the center. The added semicircles help create a moving ghostly afterimage effect.
The checkerboard appears to bulge out at the center, but everything is composed of horizontal and vertical edges.
The Pinna-Brelstaff rotating circles illusion. Move towards and away while looking at the dot in the center and see what happens.

I took yesterday's #CreativeCoding sketch and just changed the circle masks to be blurred, and have a fade instead of the harsh edges, and rotate them in accordance with the noise values instead of randomly like the last sketch.

It is fun to see how big of a change results from just those 2 small changes

#Python #Py5


Dark blue and green lines flow in a pattern where the dark blue lines sort of form a shape like the letter P
Purple Orange, and white lines seem to flow through the image. The lines seem to curve and bend when in reality they are just small short lines
Dark blue, white and gold lines form delicate blob like shapes
Burnt Orange and gold lines seem to flow from the left side of the image towards the top, and down at the very right edge

Needed a palette cleanser after today so I finished up the #CreativeCoding sketch I've been picking at the past couple of weeks. It's kind of a mashup of a lot of my previous sketches in #Py5

Generated masked circles filled with random grayscale lines, placed them on the screen based on Poisson disc sampling and then colored them based on open simplex noise

Had been so busy I forgot to enjoy coding for a while. I needed this

circles filled with stripes that overlap and overlay each other. These are form sort of a Y or a T shape in teal, while above is Red, with some more between red in the lower left. Some grey ones separate the red and teal
circles filled with stripes that overlap and overlay each other. These seem to radiate from the lower left where it is a dark blue, which gradually blends to pink, tan, and then back to pink
circles filled with stripes that overlap and overlay each other. A deep red in the lower left is surrounded by red, with yellow to the upper right, which eventually goes to back to red
circles filled with stripes that overlap and overlay each other. This one is full of earth tones, with a T shaped of dark brown surrounded by tans and browns

Cubes and octahedrons sprout from the faces of a tetahedron, recursively (cubes sprouting from cubes sprouting from octahedrons sprouting from...)

The solids are semi-transparent in soft russet shades, fading into the background with a slanted gradient of similar hues.
