So... it looks like I created a Patreon page! Want to support my work on open-source apps and games? Head over to patreon.com/agateau!

Good: Pixel Wheels standalone installers work on all platforms!

Bad: The game runs way too fast on Windows and I have no idea why...

Hey #Fediverse! :awesome:

For non techie family, what #XMPP / #Matrix client do you suggest? I'm looking for something similiar to #Facebook / #WhatsApp in features (eg videocalls) and interface. It needs to be on #Android and #iOS, be #FOSS and *easy to use*.

Currently I'm looking at #Element, #Dino, #Snikket, but would be interested in hearing more about these or other recommendations.

Please boost as I'm sure many people are looking for alternatives for family right now.

To whoever bought Pixel Wheels on agateau.itch.io/pixelwheels and set the price to $8 instead of the default $2: Thank you! You rock! ❤

@lordampersand I think the only way to find out is to smash pixel art together at ever increasing energies, to see what strange new and exotic sub-pixels are created.

I like the idea that pixel art works on a similar principle as particle physics: Just as the rules of Newtonian physics break down when things get really small, traditional art principles stop working on a pixel scale. For example, you can't draw circles if there are only corners to draw with. I wonder if this affinity goes deeper and reveals some more interesting parallels.

Experimenting with binary snapshots of master branches for GitHub projects. Could not find a way to make it work with GitHub releases without abusing tags, so for now binaries are uploaded to builds.agateau.com.

Got this running for Pixel Wheels and git-bonsai so far.

Been working on git-bonsai this week, improving duplicate handling and updating README, hopefully making it easier to understand, what do you think?

Since everybody's all about supporting artists at the moment I decided to create a Liberapay account. Almost all of my artwork is available under a Creative Commons license, and I will not be minting any NFTs.

Anything you want to donate is much appreciated, and if you can't or don't want to I hope you enjoy my art anyway, no pressure 😄

"I will slaughter you" - some emails penetrate even my thick open source maintainer skin. Like this threat.

(muffled voice) "SMOKIN!!"

I guess I am not the first one to have thought about this one, but here is last week drawing :)

Weeknote 2021-02-07: Finally fixed Pixel Wheels bug #100!

In which I dive into a rabbit hole to fix a debug-only bug :)
