oh wow, I'm really touched! thank you for sharing your translation <3

every time i use bitsy the love that goes into making and maintaining it is so palpable and it inspires me to make weirder and more loving things :')

<3 <3 <3 this made my day to read - thank you!!

weird games are the best, we need more easy-to-use game engines to make weirder and weirder niche games!

Extremely good energy. Thanks so much for giving so many people a great tool to express themselves with bitsy, and thanks for encouraging folks to be recklessly creative.

thank you john!! <3 (I'm excited to try out the "gardens of vextro" games btw)

Heehee, hope you enjoy <3

also just realised your the one who made my favorite game engine so i thank you

(+1)

<3 thank you! that made my day :)

Great stuff! This manifesto resonated for me with anna anthropy's introduction to "Rise of the Videogame Zinisters", which I love. We need more weird games and more weird game engines!

P.S.: really interested in the talk you gave! But unfortunately, the link is deprecated. Is there a YouTube video or something where I can watch it?

<3 thank you valeriy! I love that book :)

the link worked yesterday, but I see it's dead now - there must be a time limit on twitch or something :(

I know it should be on youtube eventually (link here: https://gamesnow.aalto.fi/channels/) but it's not up yet - I've reached out to the event organizers to ask when it will be available and I'll update here when it's uploaded :)

I really like this! Thank you for sharing this.

After all, there is beauty in personal creation, may it be a game or a game engine - and if a personal creation is weird, then so be it. It can be just as valuable as creations that have a more serious approach.

Make more weird game engines, make more weird games. Create weird things with weird tools. Create weirdness. Spread weirdness! Hell yeag.

ty Alicia!! hooray for weird things :D

they also call it a medium! i don't know why people don't talk about engines as much as games, and maybe they do but without it materializing in the same way?

medium is interesting, everything can be in a medium and as a medium and representable in any other medium. all very gradient together, yes! everyone must know

(+3)

there’s definitely stuff out there on this topic! (tho yeah probably not as plentiful as game design material)

I think this project by pippin barr is really cool: https://pippinbarr.com/the-nothings-suite/


and I often return to this excellent talk by em reed: https://emreed.net/GameArtEngines_Transcript.html

This is quite a hard game to understand. I thought you were apose to go to the blocks until it’s all over. But i still don’t really understand the game.
