I don’t think markdown supports that, but you might be able to put   in front of the text to force it?

Nowadays you can pick a collection and install a hundred mods without having to worry about compatibility, someone else already figured it out! I think that’s worth using vortex

I use a pomodoro timer! I actually like it so much I wrote my own, but haven’t released it yet

I’m so glad someone took the time to put together a doc about them!!

Whenever I find a new artist I like I’ll make a pandora station based on one of their songs. It usually reveals a bunch of similar artists, it’s how I found Noah Kahan around pandemic time

I agree. I understand the need for third party app stores, but first party are already a security nightmare.

Game designer created a Playdate game to pop the question to the love of his life ( beehaw.org )

Game designer Aaron (Pikaaroon) today showcased how he built a game to propose to his partner. Having previously worked on Sea of Thieves and Warcraft III: Reforged, he’s no stranger to creating colossal playable experiences. For this incredibly important moment in his life, though, he chose to work with the Playdate. Which I...

I love mine! The catalog has a ton of awesome community games, itch has hundreds more, and the sdk is really accessible if you ever want to try making something yourself. The season has a lot of variety too, I played through most of it slowly but still have a few of the longer games to finish.

I use a book light at night so don’t have issues with the lack of backlight.

As for games… Factory Farming (source code available!), MDMA, and Hand of the Divine are my current favorites. I’ve played a ton more though, I’d recommend looking through catalog

I love how dumb these things are, some of the creative exploits are entertaining!

There should be a way to give directly to the developers

I realize that, after all this time, I have never payed for my all-time favorite games I grew up playing (Fallout 3 & Skyrim). I can pay for it, but I really do not want to pay the money to the Bethesda’s marketing team, CEO, and whoever bullshit middle man who wants a cut of that. I want to give directly to the team that made...

Go find some of the member’s personal projects and support them. One of the creature designers recently started a Kickstarter for a comic book

Lots of the original teams for those games have moved on

A crumbling rail system in Ethiopia reveals failed promise of China’s Billions in African infrastructure ( martinplaut.com )

Today it sits as a daily reminder of the broken promises of China-funded infrastructure investments that swept Africa in recent years. Frequent breakdowns, inadequate maintenance funding and operational constraints mean barely one-third of its 41 trains are operational, ferrying 55,000 passengers a day, a fraction of initial...

People Make Games released a decent overview of the child labor exploitation a few years ago

Unsurprisingly, people aren’t okay with that behavior. It don’t help that Roblox tried to pressure them into removing the video

This will also force people to love to threads-federated servers, though Biden is a pretty weak reason. Meta would be smart to encourage more adopters people on fediverse care about

Rings of Power is a Disappointment, Here’s why | An Overdue Critique ( youtu.be )

Come for the two hour review of Rings of Power by a guy who has elvish on his wedding ring, stay for the Hbomberguy style twist into discussion of the way the far right uses the appearance of media criticism to radicalize vunrable young men and draw them into the manosphere.

we discovered this set the other day by olivvybee (Liv Asch), and obviously these are delightfully thematic for our instance. you should be able to find them in our emoji picker as follows. the emoji icon, at least on desktop, is the fourth from left smiley face on comment/post UI:...

Almost beaten Mars After Midnight, it’s a great little game!

I’ve also been playing the SW Battlefront rerelease on switch!

  • I like 1 more than 2, 2 has way too many people rolling and I like the maps from 1 more
  • 1 is also less balanced. I got 30 kills camping next to a gonk droid and recon droning orbital strikes over and over
  • There’s not many players, the most I’ve played with on one map is 20
  • Multiplayer crashes are annoying but otherwise I’ve been enjoying it
  • Galactic Conquest is as good as ever
