This year, my #Inktober plan is to use my own prompts and my own drawing method (which will have nothing to do with ink.)
Prompts will be generated by rolling 3 random story dice every day. I have 36 unique six-sided dice, so it means loads of possibilities. I'll take a picture and post it first thing in the morning, around 7:00-9:00 UTC+2.
Feel free to share the rolls and use them in any way you want :) Just follow this thread or the #StoryDicetober hashtag if you find them useful.
Apparently it's #Bandcamp Friday, so here comes the result of my latest musical adventures.
It's a nearly 11-minute long live steel tongue drum session with unquantized beats and lo-fi textures. It's a bit broken, a bit moody, a bit groovy... And I hope you'll enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.
No context sudden need to make a tiny game with jumping voxels and desaturated colors. I've no idea what it's about, except I named all assets in #TokiPona, and my mood was involving some kind of lazy melancholia.
I guess it could become a random walk in a quiet forest, with occasional dialogues and chill beats in the background.
The more I play non-violent games with no combat system, the more abhorrent I find games with combat systems. Don't get me wrong, both as a player and a designer, I love combat systems.
But the insane proportion of gameplay tied to violence, conflict and exploitation, and the fact it's seen as normal or even desirable in video games culture, make me feel increasingly bad. Is capitalism fun?
What about complex systems to explore empathy, ecological awareness, philosophy, utopia?
Hi, I’m a French game designer/writer working mainly in the serious game/edutainment industry.
On my free time, I develop my own video games and tools, compose electronic music, make pixel/voxel art, build keyboards, grow hops and brew beer.
Computers ate my soul.
Cyberware made you very powerful.
Tell me, who is the monster?
I think I’m going to do #Novembeat or whatever we call it and use my drawings from #theDaily for October as prompts. So hopefully I’ll have enough material to compose an interesting cybersomething soundtrack for my game project.
I don’t know if it’s "productive" or "efficient" but I like this method. Making something small every day that I can slowly refine and reuse for something bigger during the next cycle. It’s a meaningful process that builds upon itself.
Oh my, I have plenty of cool new #TokiPona followers. I really need to finish the slow and painful update of my dictionary with the ku glyphs.
@calutron Hey, welcome! It's awesome to see you here, I've always been impressed by your work. I have no doubt you'll be in good company on this instance :)
