These days, I'm thinking about how I could create a space for my students to share their learnings, ideally also across years... Will definitely keep your work in mind!
I think the main question I have right now is how can people be eased into adopting a knowledge organisation process of some sort...
Still, the Agora is very inspirational. Thanks!
With all the Assembly craze going 'round Merveilles lately, maybe folks would appreciate some top-notch games about assembly programming?
I highly recommend Human Resource Machine and 7 Billion Humans by Tomorrow Corporation.
7 Billion Humans is about parallel programming, which is quite challenging and very rewarding to solve efficiently!
Tomorrow Corporation is one of my favourite indie studios - I owe to them my (re)discovery of indie games back in '08.
Re-release of the Big Big Train's Underfall Yard today on Bandcamp \o/
So far it's really cool, but I'm not loving it as much as my favourites (English Electric and Folklore).
Anyone else into BBT?
Also, wait, licenses for programming computers?! Dodged a bullet there.
Recommended by pixelheresy on the Merveilles IRC, I'm reading through the "Mondo 2000" zines. Beyond brilliant!

A Wood Heart is #1 popular on itch :)
A Wood Heart is currently the most popular physical game on itch.
It's silly because it's really nothing, but I feel really proud of that.
Oooh @whtrbt I gather from your website you're a fellow Carlo Scarpa appreciator? :O
Next time you come over we have to go "hunting" for some of his less-known stuff around here :D
There're always more perspectives waiting to be discoverd, even in those same old 10 square kms.
"[Attention is] a lot like breathing. Some kind of attention will always be present, but when we take hold of it, we have the ability to consciously direct, expand, and contract it. I’m often surprised at how shallow both my attention and my breathing are by default. [...] By inviting us to perceive at different scales and tempos than we’re used to, [artwork can] teach us not only how to sustain attention but how to move it back and forth between different registers."
There's some more time to vote for the next book we'll read at the Merveilles Book Club. Feel free to chime in!

Exploring the world in all possible ways. Nothing human is alien to me.
Revel in the marvels of the universe. We are a collective of forward-thinking individuals who strive to better ourselves and our surroundings through constant creation. We express ourselves through music, art, games, and writing. We also put great value in play. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
