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.
More info here: itch.io/jam/no-video-jam-2

@ryan (On that bit about chess piece colors, now I’m laughing about needing chess pieces to support the full scale like Medium Skin Tone: emojipedia.org/medium-skin-ton

It's been really wild to revisit PSX games on an actual CRT for the first time in decades, because modern pixel perfect screenshots have supplanted that in my head. But they really did just look better at the time! Prerendered backgrounds were meant to be filtered by the display!

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C5%9Ami is a trip--the etymology section might as well be the shrug emoji. Dingus Day is like the shark of holidays, prehistoric but missed the "dinosaurs die out" memo.

This is muppets canon:

Beakie is a bird-like monster with rainbow-colored hair, yellow eyes, and a large, spiky beak. She made her first appearance on The Muppet Show in episode 307, where she performed "You and Me" as a romantic duet with the song's co-writer and original performer, Alice Cooper.

At the conclusion of the number, it was revealed that Beakie was merely the form into which Miss Piggy had been transfigured when she sold her soul to the Devil.

so now that APIs aren't copyrightable, how can we legally define Mickey Mouse as an API

i sent my family a picture of me grinning wildly while using the food torch, and they said i looked "terrifying." rookie mistake, to insult the person holding the tiny lightsaber

‘Do what thou wilt, that is the whole of the law’, wrote Crowley. Which ironically makes his tradition of Satanism a Code Napoleon-style civil statute system, rather than one based on evolving common law and precedent
