    How rigid is the roguelike genre?

    Not exactly a great point, but I'll concede. But as an aside, I am referring to active development.

    How rigid is the roguelike genre?

    It seems like in game design, cross-genre is more the norm than it is in fiction. I dabbled in some roguelike development during the 7DRL section, though the second time the map flowed a little weirdly, and I use numbers based terminal GUIs for certain functions instead of what one might more...

    Introduce yourself

    Depends on where the city is set I guess. In my context, I mean like while there are Computer Hackers (even almost exclusively) it's not immune to the same dreamlike quality that manifests in works like Haruki Murakami.

    C++ for the C64 (talk)

    Just what I was looking for. I'm growing a certain appreciation for 8 bit systems.

    Introduce yourself

    Ah here it is. I used to be a science fiction writer, though lately have drifted more into a magical realism direction. I had met some fellow writers in Chattanooga the other day, and they were confused when I mentioned a science fiction variant of Magic Realism. I think it has to do with...

    Coming from a fiction writer context,

    Luckily I do have a screenplay finished in first draft, that later became the short story I submitted to Tevun Cruz on Wattpad. I might dig it up and see what I can work with.

    What have you bought recently?

    I'm absolutely loving this VR game at the moment: this one Space Battler game. Although I suspect a complete newb at Dark Souls would have an easier time beating that game, than me on the third level. It seems like there is this huge difficulty spike all of a sudden.

    Coming from a fiction writer context,

    What changes will I need to prepare for when switching to writing narratives for games, instead of novels? I used to write fiction that could more easily adapt into a game, but these days I tend to write a bit more about abstract puzzle solving than pure action. I write very near future, almost...

    What have you bought recently?

    Oh it was excellent, particularly for the space battler. The cavern game I felt, I was unsure if that was the game end, or if it was incomplete. I hadn't had the same feeling since the end of Grandia I, without going into detail. I'm learning how the system works, as I'm wanting a VR styled...

    Pyra Is C++ and Python mainly used?

    Ah OK, that explains a bit. I've never coded with graphics. Or at least sprites. Even my GUIs are for cryptography and not so much games.

    Pyra Is C++ and Python mainly used?

    While you may be right, can you expound on what you mean by performance?: Lagging, prone to crashing? Que?

    Pyra Is C++ and Python mainly used?

    Yea I'm still having to learn how GUI commands work though. All I've managed so far is a word processor and a Cryptography/Steganography index. But wanting to integrate QR code based cryptography in a game sometime later. I'm actually more of a fiction writer/designer type, but having to learn...

    Pyra Is C++ and Python mainly used?

    For a long time, I had the bad habit of having to constantly reinstall the OS. Going to try to find one other flash drive I got, see if its on there. But most of my stuff is at Github rather than Gitlab. Trying to install this decentralized Git options, but no luck. It seems like everything I...

    Pyra Is C++ and Python mainly used?

    I'm more used to developing in Ruby and HTML, although I'm currently working with Shoes GUI. Gitlab currently wiped all my gits I had stored there, so buh bye Terminal Shooter. Although luckily I still have the prototype for Doomed Warrior, another 7DRL I did. I've heard Python is similar to...

    What have you bought recently?

    At the moment, got a Veer Cardboard VR set for my birthday. (Just turned 29) I just wished there was a good Free and Open Source device I could use instead of the android.
