Shop, a question: I’m trying to decide how best to gather beta/backer feedback on a small #RPG project. I feel like a forum is too out of date, but that’s what I’m used to. Would using a Slack for that make sense, to discuss multiple ideas and suggestions in their own threads? Or a google doc with comments turned on? Hmmm... #GameDev
@Rockwood AND it saves the configuration of apps when you tab out to other windows or views! Neat! :-)
Hoooly crap, I’ve just discovered that the modern iPad I now have (unlike my iPad2, which I finally ditched a couple weeks ago) supports split-screen multitasking. Woohoo! Now I can have one tab open to read from while I type notes on reorganizing it in the other tab!
That totally makes this new device a much more useful tool, rather than just a portable TV that supports the Hulu app...
How did I not know about this???!/1?
The goal for today’s #WIP is to try and finish one more section of ALONe before I show the current draft to backers. After that... editing, organizing, and probably adding more stuff I haven’t thought of yet!
Between yesterday and today I managed ~2300 words on one current #WIP, and I just received word that my test-print for another secret project (involving my first foray into tarot-sized cards) has shipped! Excellent... now, the question is: Can I focus enough on any one of these or the thousand other projects to get something FINISHED? :-P #GameDev
Oh! I wrote a blog post/essay about Life is Strange as an example of #literature in video games: http://www.larcenousdesigns.com/blog/2018/2/13/literature-is-strange #GameDev #LifeisStrange
*Pops head back in* I see I haven't been here since November... well, I'm still trying to move off of FB, so perhaps I'll post things here instead....
Starting the year off right, with the school bells running late! #Teacherproblems
#WIP is, probably, Thanksgiving cooking at this point, but also finishing up (to the point I can, anyway) the Table of Random Magic's InDesign treatment. Oh, and learning Scrivener!
Done! Woohoo! Now I can get on with writing, gaming, baking, cooking...
I teach English and Video Game Design, and I own the game development company Larcenous Designs: www.larcenousdesigns.com
