Hey #mastodon folks, I have a basic question: as I'm making a web based game / mmo, how should I make some $$$ from it?
I'd like to avoid ads, but is there an 'ethical' add provider?
Should I try to sell subscriptions? Tokens? Just depend on donations?

👾 Here's a couple of great retro titles for the PlayStation 1. Driver 2 and Sim City 2000.
The Driver series was my first true open-world driving simulator games & it blew my mind spending entire summer vacations playing them.
Sim City 2000 was another game I would play for hours at a time. I drove my parents crazy (they found it boring), but I played it for years and it never got old. Will Wright (creator of Sim City/Sims) & team are great folks, I cannot wait to see what the next fancy new thing is they are working on now! 😉😉😉

Sure, we played through New Game mode, but have you heard of New Game +?
Hey, what's some good #coop #games for couples? PC only, no split screen. Preferably LAN play but won't discount multiplayer. No competitive FPS or complicated board games, preferably just something cute with substance where we work together.
Currently we've done:
Minecraft, Stardew, HL2 multiplayer, Portal 2, Roblox, PokeMMO
A hat in time, terraria, don't starve together
22 years ago #OTD Silent Hill 2 was released. Still one of the most complex, dark, and gripping titles of the survival horror genre. Touching upon themes of trauma, grief, guilt and punishment, and blending them with metaphor and the horror element in a way not many games had done before. Quite possibly the highlight of the entire Silent Hill franchise.

Oggi compie 26 anni il gioco online per eccellenza ULTIMA ONLINE. ❤️
Quello che in realtà io (che non sono per niente un video giocatore) non considero neanche un gioco, ma una vera e propria vita parallela online. Ci ho vissuto per anni dentro a cavallo del nuovo millennio (ricordo una bolletta telefonica epica di 1.200.000 lire nel 1998 o 1999) e porto ancora dei ricordi indelebili come se li avessi vissuti in prima persona.
Ho ancora una virtual machine con Windows XP e tutto l'occorrente per accedervi (Razor, EasyUo, UoAutomap, client vari) che ogni tanto accendo per fare un giro. Ho giocato pochissimo sui server ufficiali, molto sugli emulatori. Ricordo ancora la nascita di Sampei su Moon, poi diventato Sampei di Yew guildmaster dei KEA ed il suo famoso shop "Archi & Balestre" su Universo, poi UoDreams... Poi un sacco di server internazionali... Tutt'ora se ascolto quelle musiche mi scende una lacrimuccia!
C'è qualcuno qui nel fediverso che frequentava le vaste lande di sosaria?
Good morning and happy Sunday to the entire #Fediverse today!
Let's start our day with our usual #MorningMoments and find out what we all have planned for the day to finish up the weekend.
For me, just the usual work stuff as always and then more video games as I got about 3 hours of Starfield game time in this morning.
Other than that, it's just rest and relax and watch some TV with the wife!
Ich hab einen neuen Let‘s Play Kanal auf YouTube gefunden und eventuell ist das der witzigste Kanal ever. 😂😂😂
Falls ihr Horror Games mögt sehr zu empfehlen (aber auch andere Games). Und vielleicht liege ich nun tot unterm Sofa vor Lachen und Jumpscares. Lieb‘s. 💀🏼

#GameInfekt - Man bekommt bei #Cyberpunk2077 durch das 2.0 Update die Möglichkeit umzuskillen. Also so richtig, nicht nur Vorteilspunkte, sondern auch alle Attributspunkte kann man zurücksetzen. Leider ist diese Möglichkeit nur einmalig.
Finde es wirklich schade das man nicht die Option als Spieler geboten bekommt, sich zu jeder Zeit umskillen zu können. Die Möglichkeit gab es zu Beginn sogar, wurde aber wieder rausgenommen.

Can you solve today’s Daily DINGBATS puzzle? Check back tomorrow for the answer!
In 1980, cartoonist Paul Sellers created DINGBATS as a newspaper feature that continues today. Since then, millions of board games, travel games and books have been sold, called DINGBATS®, WHATZIT?™ in North America, KATCH-ITS™ in Australia, ¿QUE ES?™ in Spain, WAS IS’ ES?™ in Germany.
Yesterday’s answer was… “INDECENT PROPOSAL”.
Just learned about rock-paper-scissors-fire-water but I disagree with the premise about water losing to everything except fire. It beats scissors because they rust or sink. It beats rocks because they sink. It beats paper because paper dissolves in water. If we're going to say fire beats rocks and scissors (because apparently it can melt them?) we need to acknowledge water's power. Who comes up with these things? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock_paper_scissors #RockPaperScissors #science #water #GameTheory #games

Does anyone have any recommendations for Hidden Object Games that aren't adventure games?
My partner and I like these types of games and we get annoyed when there's "puzzle games" or adventure games built around them. It seems like only Artifex Mundi does these things, and buries them in traditional #games puzzling.

Age of Dusk: "Hidden Treasure"
The only time I ever bought an issue of a partwork was a knitting magazine, because it was 99p and came with a free three-ring binder. Those were practically impossible to buy in the UK and I needed one to fit my copy of "Man to Man," the pre-GURPS combat book from Steve Jackson Games, which was punched to fit them. I would never have considered blowing £770 on a D&D tutorial series.
👾 Retro Gamers, here are a couple good games for the #NES #nesLightGun. These are the 5 pin carts. It really sucks that the resale shop my dad probably got these from put a sticker on the label. Probably Funcoland since we used to live there (later Gamestop). I used to have a cordless red light gun as well but I have no clue where it ended up over the years. 🔫🤠
'Groupthink Gatherings' are the new hip social trend!
Join fellow cool conformists in person or on your favorite social platforms to discuss approved topics and repeat sweet sanctioned memes.
Remember: unique opinions are, like, soooo last century!
ok, here's a long shot: does anyone know of an browser-based html, text adventure but sort of RPG game, sort of adult-themed where the beginning scene puts you in a tavern and a character walks in from outside disoriented and unable to recall stuff?
The colors are like yellow and brown and looks kinda retro. Lots of text but some images. The characters, if I remember, are maybe anthropomorphic, maybe furry. Haha, sorry!
Ugh! it's bugging me that I can't remember!
Legwork is one of the ways you can prep for a heist or open up new opportunities in storylines.
Mercs from your crew with the right skills or connections have a better chance, but they'll be unavailable for other jobs while completing it. Worth the tradeoff?

The Unity's new "softened" pricing and policy changes are NOT good enough and they don't fix anything.
The dreaded "runtime fee" stays!
The nuts CEO & board stays!
They got what they wanted.
They WILL do this again.
Self-reported install counts will still be a nightmare and I am sure Unity will track this silently anyway.
Unity already twice silently altered their ToS.
Another "pinky promise"? SUUURE.
Finish your Unity games, and never look back.

I think that making #GameDevelopment for #Consoles accessible and easy to do isn't necessary at odds with the interest of said platform owner (#Microsoft) as for #Xbox and #GamePass, #content in the form of #games is desireable.
🎲 You have become haunted by a vengeful spirit taking the form of Jonathan Frakes, beloved actor of stage and screen. He wants your attention — a laugh, a glance, a respond to a myriad of strange, seemingly innocuous questions. And yet, you know that even the slightest response will be all it takes for him to consume your soul and condemn you to hell for eternity.

Morning Folks! Yesterday was the launch of a brand new banner in #HonkaiStarRail and I burned through all of my saved-up currency trying to get the 5-Star. The results were a bit surprising, and I feel like I used up any luck that I might have had.
While I was on Warframe doing trades, I noticed at least 50% of the people after trades would say, "thanks, bro" :blobfox_nauseous:
Before, I just said my usual, "Thanks a bunch~ <3" bit and left, but after a while, I got kind of curious...what would happen if, every time I was addressed as "bro", I automatically addressed them back as "sis"? :zerotwo_learn:
So far, after 15~20 instances of it, I've had a few people be confused or be weird about it, but haven't had anyone go on a full-on tirade :leafeon_giggle:
Recently I found a copy of Tiny Toon Adventures: Buster's Hidden Treasure, and I have been playing it a bit this evening.
It's a true nostalgia trip. A lot of gaming memories from my youth are thanks to my dad. My parents divorced when I was young and once every two weeks my sister and I would stay the weekend at my dad's, who at one point bought us a Mega Drive. 🙏
I never owned this game but we often had rental games and this one we rented quite a few times! ☺️
It's a great platformer! It borrows heavily from other games in the genre, but in a good way. There are many stages, and the difficulty ramps up quickly! I'm glad this game has a password system~ 😅
Some parts really need memorizing in order to get through. I don't have much patience so these kind of games are not something I can play all evening without losing my temper, but it's a very enjoyable title. The music is great as well~ 🎶
I played a lot of roleplaying games, primarily D&D when I was a kid, but got away from it for decades. Lately, I've been surprised by how relaxing and compelling I find watching actors play on channels like Critical Role and Dimension 20. This trailer for the new D20 series (about STOATS?) has me hyped. It looks like such a good Fall campaign.
Internal Security would like to remind you that "cruel and unusual" is a relative term.
The brilliant researchers in the Advanced Persuasion Department are hard at work sharpening the bleeding edge of interrogation science, inventing ever more sadistic and weird tortures against which today's information retrieval techniques appear merely annoying and trite.
Truly, the march of progress can be felt in all corners of Alpha Complex.
I did warn y'all :) In an hur, Mortal Kombat 1 should unlock for the poor souls who didn't order the superduper premium ultra edition version, and I, a regular schmo with no particular talent for these kinds of #games, will go ahead and stream my adventures stumbling around in it. #accessibility appears to have been given some extra thought on this one, as people like @superblindman were consulted during development to get the #blind angle, as well as general accessibility considerations to be taken for this type of game. Let's see how much they were able to do, shall we? I'll see you in an hour over at https://twitch.tv/zersiax #twitch #streamer #selfPromo #contentCreation #gamerWithoutSight
Godot is not the new Unity - The anatomy of a Godot API call
Vaikka joudunkin taistelemaan monen eri asian kanssa, jotta oikeuteni toteutuisi, niin yritän aina löytää niitä mukaviakin asioita.
Tykkään pelata ja juoda hyvää teetä ja käydä syömässä kaupungilla puolisoni kanssa. Nämä pienet asiat auttavat jaksamaan ja niistä on myös tärkeää pitää kiinni ettei iske totaalinen henkinen romahdus.
Elämä potkii, mutta mä oon jo niin kovatasoinen ninja et osaan väistää niitä potkuja ja joskus potkaisen kovaa takaisin 🦵

Attention, loyal citizens!
It has come to my attention that some citizens are still using the antiquated practice of "private thought." This is a dangerous deviation from the modern societal norm.
Please make sure to articulate every passing thought while recording yourself for social media, or speak loud enough to be recorded by local passive surveillance systems.
Thank you for your cooperation.
I just found out that more than 6000 people have downloaded my PhD dissertation on forum-based role-playing games, and my mind is blown 🤯
(I never thought to check)
And more than 17,000 for my master's thesis on #ttrpg in the high school classroom 🤯
I read a lot of theses and dissertations when I research. It's good to see others are getting use out of what I wrote. And I'm glad it's freely available. It should be.
I'm working on some art for a new Kickstarter. It's a very cool ship-making toolkit for rigs and tabletop games, for players or GMs.
There's going to be a lot of cool stuff included, so go follow the KS for updates.
And here's a peek at some of the stuff I've been working on…
i posted the curation of alternative game engines (alternatives to Unity) on my @itchio blog as well:
i really hope that this will be encouraging to some devs thinking of quitting games due to these bad decisions. there are a lot of alternatives!
#GameDev #Unity #IndieDev #IndieGameDev #Resources #Coding #Development #Programming #Games
I play #games, specifically #boardgames, but I'm open to others (both digi/analog). I've done a lot of #boardgame playtesting in the past (including, but not limited to; Root and John Company from Cole Wehrle, and Gandhi: Decolonization of British India from Bruce Mansfield) and I still do. Although anymore, I usually limit that to really digging into one title for a few seasons to see it through the entire process over playing just one or two iterations of something at an Unpub event or short sprints.
I find it interesting why people like the games (or things in general) that they do. I'm quite a curious critter in that regard and likewise I love stuff like the Richmond Forum or TEDTalks that make me think (and I read the London Review of Books somewhat regularly).
As such, I find #boardgamedesign to be fascinating from a #systemdesign perspective. Some of that is because I've built a long career in the IT system design and implementation space. In 2023, my spouse challenged me to finally get off my duff and design something to play with friends. That's a... "work in progress" at the moment, but I'm happy to discuss design challenges with folks.
For my #wargaming (and history) interests, I have nerded out on the #ColdWar and it's various dynamics/locations plus Japan until WW1. I usually play #wargames for a series of iterations and then trade/sell them unless they hold steam with my group or are otherwise special. Shelf space is at a premium and I think a game that doesn't get played because it's just sitting there could go to a home that will enjoy it more. As such, I use a modified Jones Theory for keeping games, and I churn through a bunch every year.
I do paint minis, mostly in the winter months because my setup isn't conducive currently for summer painting. I prefer CMON's Arcadia Quest or other various SD-style figures for that purpose. I am the proud owner of assembled terrain (!!!) and I don't think has ever seen the light of day...
Otherwise, I enjoy most forms of music and in a prior life did on-location audio recording and some spare time as a roadie for smaller bands. Modern country and 50s rock are two areas that I shy away from though.
Covid caused me to take an interest in spectator sports, specifically stuff that is off the beaten path. I now somewhat consistently watch Cricket (T20 and some ODI), Cycling, and to a lesser degree Rugby 7s. In general, I'm more likely to watch women's iterations of sports when possible (I find the dynamics of play are more interesting than the men's side). We've been a season ticket holder for the local soccer team since before they last won a championship (2009).
2 cats (sisters), and one spouse. We (technically) have a garden and make haphazard attempts at keeping it alive and tended. Send me your cat and boardgame pictures please. I've had exactly one dog in my life, and they were the best dog...
Playing most days has helped me improve in #geography & #economics. I've gotten a rough sense of what kinds of countries have yearly exports measured in the millions, billions, or trillions of USD. And sometimes I guess quickly and feel awesome because I remember, e.g., key ag sectors in Malaysia from plot points in a @zencho novel.
