@MagpieMcGraw I see. Do you have a programming day job or do you only code as a hobby or whatevs? (Yesterday)

@SaltyPepperG yeah I've gotten better at this over the years, but when my final tasks involve "talk to other humans" I shut down hahah (Yesterday)

@TyrusPeace hmmm right yeah that makes sense. I wonder if I tied my chill out things to my projects more if it would help (drawing, etc) (Yesterday)

Working on Sky Sisters this month has been incredibly draining so I'll do the irresponsible thing and goof around with a side project~ (Yesterday)

Indiana Stone: The Brave and the Boulder


Right before GDC my friend Tim Winsky released his first iOS game into the market, Indiana Stone: The Brave and the Boulder. He needed a quick and simple promotional site for the game, so I stepped up to the job.

The game itself is pretty rad too, and you should totally check it out, and then buy it and then tell all your friends to buy it. Viral marketing.

My Anti-SOPA, Anti-PIPA Ramblings

My Anti-SOPA, Anti-PIPA Ramblings

Today is the day of the great internet eclipse with sites like Reddit and Wikipedia going completely dark from 8 to 24 hours in order to raise awareness about two horrible, terrible things that are moving through the House and the Senate here in the United States: SOPA and PIPA. I just want to make a quick post as to why I'm personally opposed to the two acts, specifically SOPA for right now.

SOPA and PIPA's goals are to ultimately stop piracy, and they are mostly crafted through lobbying by companies like the MPAA, RIAA, and the ESA. Do you think your average representative has enough knowledge of the internet and computers to draft something like this themselves? Of course not. To them, the internet is a big truck, or whatever the MPAA tells them it is that month.

The MPAA steps into congress and convinces them that they are in danger of being completely destroyed because of internet piracy. They claim to be losing jobs by the hundreds of thousands, and their profits are dropping, and it's all because of people downloading camera rips of Jack and Jill. (Just kidding, I don't think anyone pirated Jack and Jill.) Oh, and the MPAA's claims are mostly bullshit.

The result is congress drafting horrendous bills that are absolutely overkill, and that miss the point completely. Imagine the problem of piracy being a fly on your friend's face, and congress's response is to launch a nuclear warhead at the fly, thus annihilating your friend, you, and everything within a 50 mile radius.

SOPA, and PIPA, will not stop piracy.

But what they will do is harm people like me. I'm trying to make a living on the internet, like a lot of other people these days. Every day we see new and exciting ideas and starts up emerge right here on the internet because of its absolute freedom and fairness. Anyone can just buy a domain name, rent a server, and launch a website on their own, but SOPA and PIPA threaten this freedom.

For a cooler, more visual representation of the problem, I suggest watching this video. read more

Hi! My name's Kyle, and I make video games most of the time in Denver, Colorado. Here you will find my thoughts, games, websites, doodles, and other stuff like that.
