Publish where, how, what you want to publish, when you want to publish, not where everyone else is publishing just because those places may have an air of prestige, desirability. Publish where the people you care most about will access to work, without others' imposed boundaries.
#Publish in many different kinds of places, with different scales. Be a human body that reaches out to the exact people -- your core -- you wish most to #read and be moved by your work.
I have this suspicion that your "core" readership is not "The Academy," but the folks, the gente, the familia/pamilya, mga kapwa-tao, mga kapuso.

How do you best reach them but to go where they are and where they gather, to bring your presence and your work there.

Another week, another #screenshotsunday (I forgot to post this last night for #screenshotsaturday 😅).
This time I've refactored some of the code and I added a few new things: health popups, crates and warps!
#gamedev #indie #lowpoly #tetris #roguelike
1/3
health popups will display your health (and the enemy's too) when in combat or when picking up a potion. The same popup will also, well, pop up when you collect items, money or experience points!
2/3
Crates serve as static obstacles that the knight can destroy to make way. In the future, these crates will have a chance of containing items to collect.

We need to talk about applying for game dev jobs - I get a lot of CV and emails though about work and I am seeing the same mistakes again and again. Here are my super top 10 tips on what to do and what not to do when applying for jobs, especially entry level – #gamedev #gamejobs
1 – Introduce your self! - When you send an initial email, tell me who you are! What’s your name where do you come from WHATS YOUR SPECIALITY. I get many emails just asking if there are any ‘jobs’ going. If we are not advertising please tell me what you do!
2 – Put your best foot forward - “I am a writer/concept artist/animator” Are you really? Please think long and hard about this one. Chances are you excel in one area. I have yet to meet anyone who excels at more than one discipline that hasn't got 10/20+ years experience

...the first mp3 will be "Bath Tub Orgasm" - pretty sure it's the only song ever to reference sex toys, the band BTO, and "Hocus Pocus" by Focus. you can listen to it here: bitesize.bandcamp.com/track/bath-tub… - and get a FREE copy if you sign up for the email list(s)!
...btw I will attempt to perform a *soft vowel sounds* version of "Bath Tub Orgasm" at my August 29th show (w/Scorpio Moon & @PolyPamBand), details in the photo. and here's the link to the FB invite for the show: facebook.com/events/9313503… #LGBTQ #queer #music #bands

Since it comes up again and again, especially with the rate at which games are released these days, here's a quick rundown on how to survive indie gamedev. At least, this is what I do and things have worked out ok. So strap yourself in and away we go... #gmaedev #indie #indiedev
You want to think in 3's:
3 days
3 weeks
3 months
3 years
Because time is the most important resource we have, both in gamedev and life. It rules all. So be very aware of your time. Now, 3's:
3 days to solve a problem. If you're spending more than 3 days to get something working or solve a bug, it's time to move on to something else. Come back to it after a refresh before it becomes a rabbit hole. Rabbit holes are death.
