I was worried at first that this was all just going to be a bit superficial, but it feels like the benefits are adding up to something really solid. I believe in them and I'm going to give them my Quiet Code concept (Quiet Code is generated code that's folded away, which lets the language do implicit intelligent magical things in such a way that you can also see it and edit it when you need to. You can't really do this in plain text, and it would actually improve the way languages are designed.)
@faun everything about syntax highlight, indentation, styling YES! What a clusterfuck.
@faun they don't have anything public yet right?
@faun yeah that's also all I could find..
@cancel @neauoire somewhat relatedly, someone put me in a thekla-adjacent puzzle game designer discord recently. I guess it was helpful as a source of energy, to be surrounded by people who also care about this stuff.
(But I think it's really really hard to get anyone to understand and care about crycog enough that they'll end up actually contributing to it.. idk.. I feel like I have enough fire to go the rest of my way alone now.)
I think it might be good. Some playtesters have gotten really obsessed with it. It's making me go insane to think that since Rian Johnson is totally obsessed with The Witness (crycog's main inspiration) he might will also be one of the people who gets obsessed with crycog. He might read the weird stories im putting in o__o;;;
@neauoire So you want a linux build?
@faun yes :D If it's not too big, my internet connection is crappy.
@neauoire Due to the fact that I'm insane and made my own engine, it's like 8 MB.
