Hey folks. Sorry for the mishap, I think the Wandering Shop is not fully back online. (RT for visibility, if you please)
What happened: Cert expired, because a command wasn't running and I didn't catch it.
Sorry for the interruption. There's only one admin (me) and when I'm away from my computer, bad things can happen. 😕
Progress today: customized IEX to act more like a game parser that greets the player with instructions. Typing start begins a prompt for your name and a greeting returning it.
Not much to do in it yet. I'm studying some prior art, a text aventure that's also in Elixir: https://github.com/SherSpock/GMYLM-Elixir
It's kind of hard to play, and breaks down in places. Returning multi-line paragraphs as a string is ugly and kinda painful. But at least someone else is thinking about this too.
Practicing pixel art. I decided to use monochrome while learning so I can focus on not-color skills. But I like animating so I'm going to keep doing that. #pixelart

Just submitted my game for #FearTheCon11 in slot 2. I'm hoping that running will break me out of my con introversion.
#introductions I’m a human, and definitely not a literal or metaphorical wall, living in CO and working as a software dev.
Aside from a mandatory interest in programming and tech, I like games of the tabletop, video, and board varieties. I’m not a writer but the art of world building is fascinating.
Sociopolitically I’m interested in freed market and cooperative solutions to capitalism.
