"She has an abrasive tongue," the guide warned, "Like sand-paper... no, like a dagger! "

The guide lead me as far as they were able. I carried on, following a hastily drawn map, until I reached the cave.

"What kind of insect is bothering me now? You had better have brought me a WORTHY offering," snarled the sphinx.

I dropped my sacks of catnip and dried shrimp, gasping with unrestrained awe, "KITTY!"

"Acceptable," she shrugged.

You MUST play AI Dungeon 2, a text adventure game run by a neural net.

@nickwalton00 built it using @OpenAI's huge GPT-2-1.5B model, and it will respond reasonably to just about anything you try. Such as eating the moon.

@eloisa I just need an audience. I write role-playing games. You can find my personal work at patreon.com/wanderingbeekeeper and my FASA work at fasagames.com/1879-home. The first has a mechanic driven by player agency and a game world structured on the idea of consequences, the second is a steampunk world that criticizes imperialist colonialism and centers class struggle.

Small wip shot. I'm building a water reservoir for my husband in Minetest. He's setting up a super duper RPG server. You won't believe it until you've seen it. Lesson for me here: How do you learn how to create levels? By creating levels... welcome variety for my daily blender learning jollies.

monday night doodlin': larva mech.

you put the larva in the mech and it learns to drive the mech around to collect food and destroy perceived threats. driving the mech seems to reduce their stress.

there was an #accessibility #gamejam but it looks like no games were submitted?
jams.gamejolt.io/a11yjam/games

I don't have time to do it (at least not during the semester), but maybe some #gamedev people would like to repeat the attempt and organize such a thing at some point???

just :blobthinking: about it.

Got my third seminar taught today, trying to get historians to think about djikstra's algorithm and A*... I think I need a much slicker way of doing it, in future, like with a pre-prepared graph rather than just scribbling madly on a board. I've got a lot to learn about this whole teaching thing.

(Strange to me that school teachers train for years, and I am apparently qualified to rant at undergrads about computer games, in a course I wrote wholly myself, with two *days* of training.)
