Had a short meeting with a publisher today to show off Have At Thee, and early sigbs are cautiously good! The game's a two player coop, which is a very niche genre, but would fit well within one of their lines.

Here's hoping!

self-promo/new signed game 

In 2014, I designed a game called "Yo dawg, I heard you like moving gnomes. So move a gnome to move a gnome to move a gnome to maybe remove a tile."

It was for a 'redesign contest' and whilst I didn't win, I was a runner up and I got a free table at UKGE (my first time exhibiting anywhere), as well as vague interest from 2 publishers.

It's been a long time but this weird little 2-player thing is finally scheduled to come out - Spiel 2023.

Self Promo on Fedi, a Writer's Take

i meant to wait to do this until I was feeling better, but I'm actually feeling worse and the only thing I can do is spit out stream of conscious takes.

So I might as well.

I'm seeing a lot of posts about self promo, creatives being driven off by lack of self promo, etc.

Haven't seen anyone talk about ways to make self-promo work.

The rest will be unlisted and under a CW. Please boost.

Self Promo on Fedi -- PS, mutual aid 

Mutual aid requests -- ie posting for help with expenses -- are very common on fedi.

IT IS ABSOLUTELY OKAY to paid your sale links w/ mutual aid request.

"Hey, I need help making rent, here's my paypal if you can, or if you want I have art commissions open" and similar stuff

are okay and encouraged.

I see there's chatter about creators being discouraged from posting their shop links and promoting their art for sale etc. on fedi.

Most of the pre-influx userbase of the fediverse chose to come here because they're tired of corporations and capitalism. They are very eager to support indie creators and very receptive to seeing shop links, Patreon/Ko-Fi links, commission sheets, etc.

I encourage our members to share their shop links liberally. People want to support you here. 💜

I am not too sure, but it seems people that are fairly new to mastodon didn't realise that there is multiple way to send a toot yet.

The default is public, which will have the toot in the local and federated TL, which instance tend to have rules about not spaming.

But there is also unlisted & followers only where you can go on full blast and just toot as you please.

Ask if this makes no sense to you, please reach out so I can help you make full use of this wonderful per toot audience setting

@host You can add mastorol.es, for spanish-speakers.

I feel bad for all the new instances poping up in existance right now, knowing that many start with an empty blocklist, not even knowing of fediblock

Your picture of your game/cat/pun/etc. made me smile but I'm not going to boost it without alt text.

When you upload the picture, there's an "Edit" button that allows you to include a caption as well as some other options.

If you need, there's a more detailed explanation here: edtechfactotum.com/adding-alt-

If you use an app, please reply with instructions on how to add alt text in that app, so we can all learn together.
