~world v1.1.0 is active on tilde.town!

I completely changed inventory system so you can use item actions after grabbing them!

Unfortunately it is a breaking change in the sense that all users will lose their current inventory, but we have very few users on tilde.town at this point so I figured it'd be okay.

I'm going to revamp the inventory on ~world so you can use their actions while holding them. That should make everything a bit more robust.

I set up a page to output the map of ~world rooms that have been created:


Each # is a room, you can click on it to see the file that generates the room. Might do some work later to parse that data and display it in a different way, but for now it gives a view into how rooms are laid out.

Alright I think I'm ready to share ~world with others to try out:


Project page:

It's available on @tildetown by running this:

You could also symlink to that to make it easier.

I'm open to suggestions and PRs if anyone has any ideas for improvement.

I'm going to be setting up a beginner dungeon sometime soon. For now there are a few rooms around landing, it's fairly simple.

Added functionality to have locked doors and chests with items in them:

Making a lot of progress on ~world. I got an inventory system set up, as well as item actions based on things being in the inventory:

> look couch
A moth eaten couch. You'd prefer not to sit on it.

You can:
- touch
- lick


This is the first time I've stuck with a Bullet Journal long enough to hit page 100!

Also page 100 was the second page of March, and I started in March 2020. I think this is the first time I made it a whole year as well.

I'm pretty happy about all of this :)

I finally picked up a project I started a long time ago. It's coming along nicely now. It's a text based adventure system for use on a tilde server.

Users can create their own rooms (seen on the right of the screenshot) and walk around, interact with things etc using the program (left).

I have it working so you can have properties on objects, and also interact with them.

The code is probably a mess, but it works!

I'll write it up on my website when I'm done and others can start using it!

Print and digital copies of A Wood Heart are now available for sale on my itch page or my big cartel shop. All details at my website:


A Wood Heart is a map drawing and story telling game about humans, forest spirits and the intersection of their existence.

@exquisitecorp I just listened to the first episode of Artists and Hackers, and I love it. I feel it was put together well and had a lot of interesting information. I'm looking forward to the next two episodes, thanks for putting this out there! :)

I put out a podcast called Artists and Hackers. Episode 3 is out now: Can a Programming Language be a Radical Community? It's on the javascript library p5.js and how they support and nurture their community of contributors

Another really cool project, listen to radio stations online by clicking on them via a globe.


How did I not know this existed? An online radio site based on Jet Set Radio!

I find the increasing complexity of the world to be a terrible drag

I started playing Shenmue again tonight. It's been, what, 15 years or so since I played it?

It's fantastic. I think it may be my favorite game of all time.

The atmosphere, the way you can interact with many things, buying little capsule toys. It's the best 💙
