Data engineer. Developing a video game in my free time - see my pinned tweet! I also like birds, like, not a normal amount. She/her

Excited to share this new trailer for Witchhazel Woods. Next step: setting up a Steam page for wishlists! I'll shout once that's available, but in the meantime, follow me on here for updates on the game's progress.

As a veteran people leader, I would hesitate to trust this ebook of advice from, apparently, an alternate reality where we are not still in the middle of a pandemic. I recognize that this is inconvenient to businesses but my leadership style has always been based in reality.

Hey, question for #IndieGameDevs who have published on Steam. How did you go about determining what minimum specs to require/recommend for your game?

The Omnicron variant is just another example of how COVID will be prolonged if rich nations and Big Pharma keep blocking vaccine distribution.

Iā€™m a non-binary artist. Iā€™m currently working on a portrait project drawing a trans person every day. Iā€™m going to add them to this thread as I go along to see how it evolves. I want to capture moments of gender euphoria and joy. #TransArt #trans #DailySketch #art

The data don't lie: #gamedev correlates with improved mental health for me.

Of course, correlation ā‰  causation. Maybe game dev makes me feel good, which I do find to be true, but could also be that I don't feel motivated to do game dev when I'm already feeling bad. That was certainly the case this past week.

I am having a tough time with existence this week and haven't done any game dev. Best I can manage is slogging through the work day then binging Animal Crossing in the evenings. Maybe next week.

Web 2.0 was removing vowels from names. This must be Web 3.0. Someone throw VC money at her stat!

I don't know who needs to hear this, but accessibility features do not need to also benefit able-bodied people in order to be worth building. Making something accessible to disabled people is important enough on its own.

It's especially grating that I keep seeing this point repeated in corporate DEI materials. Shouldn't DEI initiatives be a place where we include marginalized groups because including them is the right thing to do and not because there's some kind of auxiliary benefit?

Is it a startup in the AI space, a prescription medication, or a Pokemon? The world may never know
