I've felt the sudden urge to set up a small #tokipona forum for the Merveilles folks (or anyone interested in it) who'd like a more organized place than Mastodon to discuss and learn the language together. Disclaimer: I'm a total beginner.
Feel free to join and suggest anything (and to boost if you like the idea)
Here's my #hyperjam entry that does not use HyperCard, but still includes 1-bit gradients and Apple II cursors and fonts.
It's a kind of voxellated emotion-based isometric fortune cookie simulator. Or maybe a roguelike without combat where nothing happens but randomly suggested feelings. I don't know, but I like it, and I really learned a lot while making it. I might even make an actual game out of this.
Hey, I’ve finally found a bit of time to put my #novembeat tracks on Bandcamp. I did a bit of mastering, and came up with quick and dirty aesthetics I still rather like. I also had fun naming the tracks using a blend of bad translations, bad search engine suggestions and heavy text glitching.
I’m glad I did it, it was a great experiment and a motivating starting point for more musical exploration in the future.
Hey Fediverse, I’d like to start a slow-paced micro fiction experiment with input from the community. I’d play Stellaris (a grand strategy space empire sim) and post regular updates about how everything goes horribly wrong in my galaxy, with polls to help me take important decisions.
What kind of civilization would you like to see boldly go where no man has gone before? (suggestions welcome.)
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.

Today is starting great.
- A friend wished me a happy birthday in Toki Pona. "sina sike e suno!" which can be understood as "You've made the sun spin!" Inaccurate but fun and poetic, very Toki Pona indeed.
- I was gifted a Pi 4, right on time for the Plan 9 craze.
- I think I might survive the heatwave.
Wrote the closing words for the logbook, with some thoughts that went through our heads during the passage.
I’m realizing the #tokipona glyph for “kule”, which means “colorful”, and takes the shape of a triangle barred by a horizontal line, might be a direct reference to Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. This kind of blows my mind.
Pye Corner Audio has just released an experimental acid EP and it's exactly the kind of slow ambient banger I didn't know I needed.
Seems like my dad has decided to gift me a Raspberry Pi 4, which is awesome, but I have no idea what to do with it. Or mostly, I have too many ideas and I can't decide.
Using it with a small screen for some kind of mini writing/coding workstation, for small games and experiments and maybe a bit of
ORCA sounds good, but I'm not sure what OS to install on it. I'd like to keep it as minimal and customizable as possible and avoid recreating a pseudo desktop experience... Any suggestion?
The nice lady from the postal service has finally brought me the Plaid kit I had ordered many months ago, and I am QUITE excited about it. Now I just need a few more weeks to find enough time to assemble it...
I can't believe I'm actually thinking about making my own conlang. It's way too early for that. But... I can clearly see how it would fit with another ancient project of mine, like the new piece, and possibly the last, of a very old puzzle.

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.
