Another rushed dev session for my #GamesForBlindGamers jam game, #ObsidianMountain. Here's the title screen and (hard-coded) biome/dungeon selection scene.

Dealing with "house of cards" issues today - couldn't track down an issue that was completely breaking the load process of my #MSX project. Seemed adding and removing things arbitrarily would fix or break it.
When that happens, check byte alignment of code! One of my pre-allocated structs was an odd-byte size and the compiler (sccz80) didn't adjust the BSS properly.
Wasted 2 hours! All good now. Phew.
Going live now! Porting my #Unity-based, #FantasyRTS #RealTimeStrategy game over to #Godot4 on #Twitch.
I'm excited to get all the new features of the past, er, six-plus years of #DotNet into my #GameDev work flow!
On the assumption that the #AI door has been opened and there's no closing it, we need to start advocating for ethical use.
- Determine ethical ways to build learning libraries.
- Lobby for laws that can be enforced to protect IP creators.
- Identify use cases where AI is a force multiplier for human creativity rather than a clumsy replacement, and champion development in that direction.
- Unionize, so those with more power/money/greed than sense can't "replace" us with bots.
Tonight I'll be porting my #Unity-based, #FantasyRTS #RealTimeStrategy game over to #Godot4! Catch me at about 8PM Eastern on #Twitch.
I'm excited to get all the new features of the past, er, six-plus years of #DotNet into my #GameDev work flow!

Today feels like I forgot something important, but no, I just changed up my release schedule for tutorials from Monday to Tuesday due to Mondays being rather packed for me with class and class preparation.
But tomorrow's tutorial is going to be on how to recreate one of my favourite things in the Elder Scrolls games and I'm so looking forward to releasing it 💛 #gamedev #unity3d

AICommand by keijiro is crazy:
Craziest part is how simple it is. Please check out AICommandWindow.cs here: https://github.com/keijiro/AICommand/blob/main/Assets/Editor/AICommandWindow.cs
I've made a fork with a few extra features (logging generated scripts, ability to easily edit preamble) that you can find here: https://github.com/PushyPixels/AICommand
I'll be playing with it more and adding more features as I go. (If you want to see more examples of what it can do, you can go to my testing branch.)
Started working on a new level select screen :)
I have a new paper out, published in the new ACM Games journal! It's about in-app purchases in mobile games so it might be of some interest to people who play or make these sorts of games.
Our paper, "The Many Faces of Monetisation: Understanding the Diversity and Extremity of Player Spending in Mobile Games via Massive-scale Transactional Analysis" uses our world-first access to Unity Analytics' in app purchase data to understand how people spend in mobile games.
In part 3 of my series on procedurally generating building interiors I discuss how to connect up hallways.
Check out this amazing blind accessible game The Bard's Tale! https://www.wanderword.net/releases/the-bards-tale-warlocks-of-largefearn/ Now that you're inspired, try making a blind accessible game yourself! https://itch.io/jam/games-for-blind-gamers-2 #GameDev #A11y
v0.7.3.1 is out! In spite of the 0.0.1 increase it's a significant update, as it fixes a bug that has been preventing all seafloor creatures from showing up in the game until now.
Read all about it here! https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/1648760/view/3690176239613105521?l=english
Also the game is on sale for a few days with a 25% discount 😀

Moved in Nov so haven't had much time to work on #gamedev #programming #linux... Un-named platform scroller. Finally back into it. Added events for onHeld(), onDropped(), keys / locked chests, onLevelUp(), level system.
Hey, gang! Seems like Godot 4.0.1 just dropped so you know we got you covered with new pre-compiles of #Godotsteam. And in all the delicious flavors like Windows, Linux, and Mac. Come get you some! Also a super-big thank to Sapphire for patching up our Github Actions to make things more streamlined!

Another cishet white guy, not surprising for #WhatAGameDevLooksLike... So here's, at least, what a #GameDev's story looks like:
-15 years in contract and full time QA across four cities in three corners of the country, now an #indie senior designer at #BigBlueSkyGames
--three years of pandemic WFH giving me the opportunity to grow this ridiculous mane
- turning 43 this year, finally had to get glasses
-still here thanks to support and encouragement from family, friends, and my wonderful wife
Fixed some bugs, added more waves and zombies 🧟

Kenney Game Assets All-in-1 has been updated to version 1.6 adding "Conveyor Kit", "Tiny Town" and updating "Platformer Kit", "Medals" (oldie!) and "Tappy Plane" (oldie!)
Interesting #GameDev challenge: could you make an #anticolonialist #Catan - which included #indigenous peoples, and respected their sovereignty?
(#SmallWorld's Lost Tribes are similarly problematic.)
Tweet by @LeylaCatJ:
Great talk by @colewehrle, a great start to this year’s #GDC. Reaffirming that avoiding discussion of historical controversies and terrors in games is NOT the best way of telling the players it is bad, often resulting in erasure of stories and history that should be told.

@raccoonformality On a personal note, I really struggled with math. My father could do long division in his head, but I did not get the math gene. I barely got a C in college algebra. (And there is some new research that there _is_ a math gene.) So what if you don't get As in math? Far more important to be able to tell a story and grasp the complexities of game levels. #gamedev https://www.inverse.com/mind-body/math-genetics-study-explained

@raccoonformality PS: My opinion is that we need a balance of math and arts for great games. I have worked with many people who felt stupid trying to use word processors, spreadsheets, or accounting packages. I always tell them: Any software that makes your fell stupid is BAD software. #gamedev #gaymer

QUESTION! Back at you #gamedev and #godotengine side of Masto.
What is a weak point of Godot, something you feel could be better. Specially compared to commercial offerings.
I am nearing my choice of engine for the future and just want to get a few more personal notes.

I can't follow tutorials, tutorials are slow and don't answer my questions, and video tutorials a like being on a speeder bike race but over a snail.
I need to know the basics, variables and options then I just mess up and make things explode, that's the only way I can learn something.
You might be wondering... when will Ericbomb stop spamming about Audio games? Considering I scheduled these out and planned ahead, I can keep this up until the Games for Blind gamers game jam starts next month! So check out this game on steam that is blind accessible! https://store.steampowered.com/app/2084030/Pitch_Black_A_Dusklight_Story__Episode_One/ Then join the jam! https://itch.io/jam/games-for-blind-gamers-2 #GameDev #A11y
Dead Horizon is a game where you can 'solve' more than a few 'problems' by using your gun.
There are also many 'non gun' ways to solve problems. For cowards.

Card games are another genre of game that is very easy to be made blind accessible! And one of my all time favorite mobile games is a perfect example of it with Night of the Full moon! Check out how they made their incredibly popular game blind accessible here! https://store.steampowered.com/news/app/769560/view/3026960867714120895 Then sign up for the Games for Blind Gamers Game Jam here to try to make your own blind accessible game! https://itch.io/jam/games-for-blind-gamers-2 #A11y #GameDev

#gamedev peeps who have released a game on Steam: How do you process the sales etc. data? The csv files you can export are super unwieldy, wishlists are separate from sales, etc...it's all a bit chaotic.

Under the hood it's actually just a map from the game. At first it crashed because there was way too much playtesters to fit inside. 🤭
Yay, movement basics are in, should get on with her moveset next!
