Pinned toot

Hi, everyone; I'm tarah, otherwise known as lobst. I've drawn a few comics that people have seemed to enjoy, and programmed a game demo that won 10th-place in a 140+ entry game jam despite having no sound. My ability to finish any individual project has been stymied by mental health problems for over a year, but I've been seeking treatment and making progress. I've also been streaming videogames on weekends. Watch this space!

Back home safe and sound from BLFC! Both Phen and I had a great time; thanks to all the cool people we saw along the way! 🔸

So many books to shelve, so little time.

Thanks to @Ormur for the commission of his character!

Not owning your own tools* is bullshit.

*creative software is a tool

Sunday afternoon at BLFC: just saw the roommates off to the airport, bought some books in the Den, and got lunch. I'm in the creators' lounge now (feel free to drop by); it's hotel-silent, there's a wall directly behind me, and I am psyched to be here🔸

Artist lounge update: After giving the doorknob a jostle, it seems the room is currently open and unlocked! I'll keep it in mind for later tonight and tomorrow 🔸

My kingdom for a quiet room with tables, chairs, and accessible electrical outlets! I'm making do in the main stage hall until at least 1PM, feel free to swing by and say hi.🔸

Remember the 3D Pinball from Windows XP? It was actually an inferior re-make of a board in a pinball collection called Full Tilt Pinball developed by Maxis.

You can now download the superior version (higher res graphics and sound, music, better physics, smoother gameplay) for free, as it is now abandonware. And it works on Windows 10.

Made it to BLFC on time! I'm wiped out from the long trip, but I will be attending today's Mastodon meetup at the very least 🔸

Ko-fi is now following suit and utterly and completely cracking down on adult content

DO NOT say suggestive/adult things in the comment fields of your PayPal/Ko-fi transactions

DO NOT directly, publicly link your PayPal/Ko-fi identities in your adult-oriented art posts

DO NOT keep a lot of money in your PayPal account. Transfer it to your bank often, where they can't seize it and take it from you

Artists and commissioners use good judgement, it's a balancing act from both sides
