Tweaked this a bit further:
- Added Godot, Focus Writer, and a few microconsoles
- Installed xboxdrv, added a desktop shortcut to a shell script to activate a wired 360 controller once plugged in via USB
- Consolidated all emulator shortcuts into a single folder, with custom icon applied; DRM-free games to be included shortly
- Added pMusic (for podcasts) and Quod Libet (for music), for future creative streams
Was unsure about the scale of various things in an architecture study I decided to model from scratch, so I drew an assistant to help with visual reference. (It worked; I now see that those cabinets are all off in multiple ways. Modeled in Blender 2.8; assistant is @phenokage )
I'm especially a fan of page 94, where the section dedicated to combining Mario Paint with your CD player and VCR to make a music video veers into showing off a community member's workflow tricks for successfully executing this time-consuming project. Make a video to Pearl Jam's "Jeremy", kids; its strong images will inspire you
Xenoblade Chronicles 3D, other portable RPGs Show more
Looking to the future, I'm not sure what to fire up on my 3DS after XC3D's credits keep on rolling...
...is what I WOULD say, were I not already aware that Ever Oasis has an entire species of friendly characters that look like this in it; hello, I'm at-lobst at scalie.club, it's very nice to meet you, madam

Holiday gift report Show more
Left-to-right: holiday gifts from my partner @phenokage and good friend @Dex, respectively! (The Labo kit is partly for the fun of assembling things, partly for the Deemo controller; Dex's was also an ideal gift in that it's something I wanted for my Sonic shelf, but was reticent to buy for myself.)

My first playlist (of what will be many, I assure you) is exclusively of songs that, from what I've heard (or otherwise the first 10-15 seconds of listening), sound like they''d pair well with this specific hyperspeed GIF of Elaine dancing.
(I found this version of said GIF by searching Tumblr for "Kirby Music")
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!
Stream update: Despite a major setback at the worst possible moment in the Giygas fight, I completed the remainder of the game after a combined total of 10 hours of streaming. Bright side, it allowed me to get more use out of the sidebar graphic I whipped up pre-stream just for the final dungeon (spoilers, obviously):
Going live in ~5 minutes, to start a fresh playthrough of EarthBound: http://mixer.com/lobst
PSA: For anyone who's wanted to make a PICO-8 or TIC-80 style fantasy console game but felt alienated by the presence of a price tag, there's now a free/open-source Python-based alternative called Pyxel https://github.com/kitao/pyxel
Food Show more
Dessert pie (the more popular pie from Undertale) is out of the oven, complete with my patented Clumsy Crust™️ (a regular pie crust with trim assembled from scraps, because the edges came apart when I rolled it out)
collection update Show more
Well, some enterprising collector bought the copy I had my eye on, but eBay had it for $10 less with free shipping. (Basketball's deflated in this one only because it's been over half a decade; I expect it to inflate fine, but we'll see how it goes when I get the proper adapter for our bike pump.)
I do not expect to actually be able to play this anytime soon; this was clearly made with the ideal Kinect living room in mind (giant open penthouse loft, non-carpeted floor)
Running through Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories Show more
Every interstitial voiced cutscene so far involving the three heroes has them walking into an austere white hallway, either Sora or Donald asking "I wonder how many more of our collected experiences we've lost?", and Goofy responding with "Shucks, it's not worth worrying about!"
It then fades in to some version of this arrangement of onscreen elements, which makes it feel like a grim ritual is about to occur
