Just learned that this is a racial slur in the UK - very sorry about this; it was just a cute frog-adjacent word to me that has no meaning here. So, this frog thing temporarily no longer has a name while I figure out something that is not going to be blanket-inappropriate!

I've always struggled with environment art, and making areas feel different in different sections has been a looming challenge. I think I'm getting there though!! This is all one huge continuous game region 😄 #indiedev #gamedev

Sad that most big gaming media is still ignoring UNSIGHTED, no matter how good reviews are and the amount of "best/most original metroidvania of the year" comments we get I'm still proud that we, two trans women from Brazil made this, but sometimes the competition is so unfair

Level editor in action! 💪😤 From blank slate to first-pass blocking (no dressing), it only takes a few minutes to manage all my prefabs and multiple tilesets at once! (3x sped up from original 2:45 time) Can't overstate how much time this thing saves!! #indiedev #GodotEngine

Upgraded Scrabdackle's level editor! This is running directly in-editor in #GodotEngine - my rooms are separate disconnected scenes, but when I activate my level editor, I can preview each adjacent room via viewport to ensure consistency across the greater world! 😄 #indiedev
