Why are there no multiplayer-focused colony builders?

Are there any I'm not aware of with no mods required?

We aren't doing enough to give gaming communities tools to police themselves.

A report in a video game doesn't call out bad behavior or teach good behavior. It just punishes the problem player a few days later without a reason being given.

Got some done today. Washed 3 loads of laundry for wifey, and then kinda slouched around and watched wife do her classes for game dev for Unity. She likes my advice (now) about landscaping and asset placement. She's the programmer/developer, I'm the concept artist/ideas guy. Really excited for her though. She's having so much fun. Someday a game will be made, but right now she's learning the program and how to adjust assets.

In 1992 our Commodore Amiga platform game Hoi was released worldwide on two 3.5 inch diskettes, but as the US-based publisher didn't pay the royalties, we decided to release an AGA chipset remix for free in 1993.

Here's a full longplay video of the Hoi AGA Remix. We had lots of fun creating the game as three youngsters.

TL:DR
According to this article:
Only 15% of indie developers break $100,000, less than 5% break $500,000.
The average developer makes less than $13,000 on a given game, that may have taken several months or even years to create.

It's been a good couple of years since I tried to use #Unity for anything time-sensitive. But my experience with the #LDJam this weekend really brought home how slow the more recent versions are. It was absolutely infuriating and wasted a lot of time.

So! I'm not abandoning Unity but I think it's time to branch out and start learning other tools.

The obvious direction seems to be #Godot, but are there other engines I should be looking into?

For reference I like to make both 2d and 3d games, usually more management-style things than combat or action heavy. Not a massive fan of C# so if you'd recommend something that uses another language (I know that's the case with Godot) that's totally fine ๐Ÿ˜…โ€‹

Opinions appreciated!

Hello everyone! I'm #indiedev from Ukraine. I am working on my #metroidvania and this is my first post here. I develop it on Construct 3. And two days ago I created a Steam page. This is side-scroller metroidvania about girl who saves her village from a terrible epidemic with gameplay like in classical metroidvanias.

Better motion warping

Pixel art. 2D Sidescroller scene where the main character on the right (generic looking Caucasian brown haired dude) is crying and running away from a huge green gelatinous cube, which is currently digesting main characters raiding companion. Background is dungeonesque, with moss and chains and all the stuff you donโ€™t actually find in castles but you do in games.
