  1. Recently completed video games

    I beat Hollow Knight this weekend, but only the Lame Ending, where I got something like 88% completion, and I AM HAPPY WITH THAT It's a good game with a stupidly slow opening that almost made me abandon it out of tedium. Once it opens up and like, you get a little bit more movement options, it's great, but man, that initial hump of like, boredom mixed with one very tough boss fight was not the best.
  2. Plug your shit

    If anyone wants to hear me ramble about my job working on a space telescope, or about science communication and gender representation in astronomy, I was a guest on the Talk Nerdy podcast this week. I said that Hubble was "almost 20 years old" when I actually should have said "almost 30 years old," because time has a way of continuing to pass and you think that the early nineties is much closer than it actually is. Death is around the corner everyone, so have a good tuesday
  3. Modest Tech: The NX Generation (Nintendo Switch)

    I know that this is not going to be a super popular opinion, but another great answer for entertaining people in a goofy, approachable way for a while is the oft decried 1-2-Switch. I have pulled that out at a bunch of gatherings with friends and families and it's been really fantastically fun. Here's a photo my Dad and my wife getting ready for a showdown (on my parent's homemade back patio tiki bar): we had more than a few hours of goofy laughter and fun. Overcooked and Jackbox are fine, but Jackbox requires a group of people who are all at around the same level of humor understanding, and Overcooked requires a bunch of people who want to work together and can communicate well. 1-2-Switch mostly just requires two people to play a simple game together, with people watching.

    This may be my favorite game from this year's jam! (here's a hyperlink directly to the part where I play the game) As I mentioned at length in the slack channel, this is super reminiscent of what I do at my work sometimes, so it was fun to see it codified into a pretty winning game. Thank you!
  5. [dev log] A Wish Upon A Star

    I played a few levels and then got hopelessly stuck last night: (here's a link directly to me playing your game) I must have been overlooking something completely obvious. I am also profoundly bad at reading instructions, so maybe I missed a key bit of explaining. It's such a gorgeous game, and I'm sad that I couldn't progress any farther!
  6. [RELEASED] A Wish Upon A Star

    I think you saw this last night, but here's my run through of (part of) your charming game: (here's the link directly to the part if the player doesn't do what it's supposed to) I really wish I had thought to right click on the rock to be mined, I'm such a dummy. This was very relaxing, as you probably were hoping, and the voice acting was great!
  7. [Released-ish] The Fresno Experiment

    I played your game last night! (link to exact time if this player doesn't do it right) I really enjoyed it, even in its weird rough unfinished state. Up until I realized that I didn't know if I had discovered all of the content there was in the game.
  8. [Released] Stream Frasier Online Free

    @Teljoor - I appreciate your playing my game, and I definitely agree that something is a little wonky with line selection. I'm sure that if I spent more time with Fungus, I could make something that worked, but Fungus is surprisingly difficult to fumble around with unless you go and change the Unity assets themselves. @Zirrrus - I think that I agree about the shift coming a little suddenly. I didn't want bore my players, but it's hard to maintain a balance in an indie game between keeping things moving and also maintaining a steady tone in a compelling way. I am also glad to hear the game is clicking for people who have no Frasier experience. That's a weird bonus. @Nappi - I was ALSO surprised how the markov chain did at making gibberish sentences that kind of seemed like sentences the character might say. I found myself reading the lines in the voice of the character in my head, which was weird. Thanks for playing! @pdotjpg - Thank you for playing. I have not played David Lynch Teaches Typing, but mostly because I don't have a lot of knowledge of Lynch. But maybe that will make it more weird and fun? I should check it out. @nkornek - I SHOULD ADD THAT AS A FEATURE. I don't know why I didn't think of that, thank you! Thank you everyone who has checked out this weird game!
  9. [Released] Our Weird Monstrosity

    This game was Very Fun. I had to play it across two parts, although part 2 is just my attempt at creating The Dot Gobbler from the quick shot at the beginning of the game. (And I failed spectacularly.) (I got a very important phone call ending this part)
  10. [Released] They Came Through the Floor

    I played this game! And it was fun, if perhaps PRETTY DIFFICULT ON A KEYBOARD. You can watch me fumble around with the game (and probably, pronouncing your name, sorry!) here: I am ALSO sorry that I was super oblivious at first as to what was going on.
  11. [Released] George Fan

    I played your game, and I liked it a lot. You can watch my reaction here: I am wondering if...
  12. [RELEASED] The Convergence Compulsion

    I played your very fun game! And, against all odds, I completed it. You can watch me play the game here: I have a feeling that on a few of the puzzles I Look Like An Idiot Who Has Ignored The Obvious Route. OH WELL.
  13. [(Somewhat) Released] Build the Nublar Evolved

    I played the prologue and DID POORLY. It turns out, the public is not as interested in Jurassic Park: Mostly Veggisaur Edition. What a fun text game! Thank you.
  14. [Released] Buried Treasure

    Hello! I played your game, and it was super fun. I streamed it on Twitch, which you can watch here: (It's important that you understand that I was in a Silly Mood, which is why I did a lot of silly rhyming songs later into the game.)
  15. [Released] Stream Frasier Online Free

    Thank you! I think that's what I was going for? I think that this might be the box quote for the physical release. "Baffling and Compelling" - Atlantic I think that, devoid of any Frasier knowledge, this must have been highly inscrutable. I don't know if I'd recommend Frasier, to be honest. In a world where there are so many diverse new things to watch, Frasier sticks out as a weird remnant of a simpler time. Frasier is a spin-off of Cheers, following one of the stuck-up (non working class) side characters as he moves away from Boston). The show centers around this guy (Frasier Crane) and his brother, both Wealthy Upper Class brothers living in Seattle. Both brothers are psychiatrists, but one of them is a psychiatrist on the radio. Essentially the show was like, "A Sitcom For Snooty Coastal Liberals", where it's overly clever and painfully, painfully white. I watched a bunch of the show putting the game together, and while it's charming, and it has it's die-hard fans, it's unnecessary, especially nowadays.
