One of the things I'm looking forward to in crycog is putting the player in situations where most of the puzzles are known to be unsolvable, and they have to convince themselves of this.
The player must develop the character to be able to seek solutions in spaces where there might not be any, and then also to be extremely careful before accepting any impossibility proofs they come up with just in case they trick themselves into entering a cynicism trap.
Rekka has kept a really good diary of our day to day (mis)adventures. The TLDR version is that it was just horrible, 1000nm off the coast of Japan we we knocked down and the capsize ripped of everything that wasn't the mast from the deck, so we lost our solar panel, dodger, etc..
We'll start posting the transcription of the log soon. I
For some reason this got spam filtered so a lot of people might have missed it, some visual/dataflow programming env formerly called Luna, now Enso, is rewriting its UI in non-web stuff https://medium.com/@enso_org/enso-dev-blog-19th-june-2020-335e528d50b
I look forward to playing around with it when it's a bit more complete. It looks yum.
Has anyone ever seen sichuan chilli oil for sale? Lots of recipes, lots of sichuan restaurants use it, but none of the store-bought jars of chili oils I've tried use sichuan peppercorns. It doesn't seem to go off, so this is odd.
Hmm curious: "From 1968 to 2005, the United States Food and Drug Administration banned the importation of Sichuan peppercorns because they were found to be capable of carrying citrus canker (as the tree is in the same family, Rutaceae, as the genus Citrus). This bacterial disease, which is very difficult to control, could potentially harm the foliage and fruit of citrus crops in the U.S. It was never an issue of harm in human consumption."
Chickpeas with amaranth and sesame seed, a cube of stock and chilis (today, included szechuan peppercorn). Extremely good with extremely little effort (beyond sourcing the amaranth and soaking the chickpeas beforehand, but these things become habit)
"Sam is the author of euphoric sound landscapes inspired by the writings of David Pearce, largely exemplified in his latest album — aptly named “Utility.” Sam’s artistic excellence, motivated by blissful visions of the future, and David’s philosophical and technological writings on the potential for the biological domestication of heaven are a perfect match made for the fusion of artistic, moral, and intellectual excellence.
The #ExperimentalFarmNetwork is a super inspiring project. They collect rare or endangered seeds and use a network of volunteers to create more seed and help propagate the plants. They also drive amateur plant breeding projects to improve #food crops that are not usefull to industrial #agriculture such as perenial celery, kale and onions. It's #CitizenScience !
Played *Kids* https://playables.itch.io/kids/ It really neatly captures the creative arbitrariness of the play that emerges from any sufficiently large group of kids, emergently chaotically fucking around. It is a big charismatic mood that I welcome in this house, a tad bittersweetly, wondering why it's been so long since I saw it last
One alternative to this would be a box with a ribbon attached to the bottom that you weave between the stacks as you put them in. Hmm... might actually be easier to manufacture, as it wouldn't require boring notches in the sides of the cards, it would only take a bit of glue
How I might solve witching lands' unique statekeeping problem
the deck would often need to be kept divided in odd ways that would change frequently between sessions as a coven progressed through the game
(the language shown here should have underscores in the names but I wanted them to be shorter than regular underscores but then couldn't be bothered drawing them in so I left them out sorry.
it might have to do a bit more to distinguish type names from field names from parameter names, I do have things in mind.)
Deciding which things to leave unnamed. Respecting its other. Making games about making meaning
Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
