Say what you will about the new M1 macs, but they sure are fast.

Hey! We're running a game jam on Itch that focuses on making an audio game. Audio games are games that are played completely by ear and don't have eyes as a minimum requirement! I'd absolutely love for you to join and give it a try!
And if you know someone that might find this interesting, maybe tell them? <3
We start on April 9th, and submissions close on April 26th.

There's just so much stuff that comes bundled with Logic... It's totally possible to have fun with only the 70 GB of content it comes with. It's a lot. Coming from Reaper where you get pretty much nothing.

As much as I prefer Reaper over Logic, I do have to say that I kinda missed it. It's just such a different flow, such a different way of working... it's super easy to lose yourself in all the samples and synths that just come bundled with it and then you end up with something that could maybe fit right in the Cyberpunk soundtrack if it was, you know, a full song and not just a loop.

Hey there, and community of the Fedi!
Are any of you up for a little challenge? If so, you could join the , and make it an even bigger success than it was last year!
Yeah, no video. Well, you could have it. But the point of this is to
1. remind developers that yes,, gamers exist, yes, we would love to have more games to play, and no, it isn't so hard to make them and
2. to give us more of said games, because hell, there really isn't enough of them.
If this sounds scary, don't worry, there's plenty of people willing to help you. There's a Discord server linked in the jam's description, with plenty of skilled developers, sound designers and beta testers. And if you aren't into Discord, you could try forum.audiogames.net.
And finally, the link! itch.io/jam/no-video-jam-2

Just witnessed my first instance of someone making a webpage with a user interface drawn only on the canvas. Completely inaccessible. Please, whatever you do, don't do it. I know Flutter does it, but don't. Please, please, don't. I was super happy not to have to deal with inaccessible Flash UI's anymore... even a bad website is better than this. :(

If you're interested in audio game development, game accessibility in general or adding accessibility to your game, I've created a Discord server a while ago for people to ask questions and discuss these topics. If you're curious, you can join here: discord.gg/565Dgaw

I can't believe this instance is turning 3 years old in August. That's just insane.

@tootapp hey, I seem to get all notifications double. Is this a Toot problem or a me problem?

How does it always happen that no matter what paradigm enterprise chooses, enterprise always, ALWAYS, manages to absolutely and utterly overengineer it? You could express this same thing in about 90 percent less code and still keep things nice and extendable.

Dumb programming joke... if it's even a joke 

Oh, people don't like the kingdom of nouns? Time to invent a programming language that's literally all nouns. Usage of anything other than nouns will be a compiler error.

Nothing like learning a programming language by writing a text based survival game

Does a person that doesn't actually like Rust exist?

Ah yes, those first few days back at work after weeks of vacation. Many fun!

For those that are new, Hi! I'm Talon! I mainly talk about , and - I mean to talk about more but for some reason that never happens.
Webdev during the day, audio game dev and music producer at night. Oh I also make sure dragonscave.space sorta kinda mostly runs.

However our local timeline needs some love. So hi. How is fedi doing? Y'all alright today?

I'd like to take this time to thank @Mayana for all the work she does for the instance. I think it's almost fair to say that she owns the place now 😄

oh btw I wasn't going for realism. It just kinda... happened. And I thought it sounded cool.

If anyone craves an anonymous text board (https://kiramoji.ga), or text chat in rooms (https://ding.ga), or perhaps the same in audio (https://himawari.app), I and @talon got you covered. All #anonymous and #opensource. Works with #screenreader software as well. GO forth and create!
