Size comparison of the two black holes imaged by the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) Collaboration: M87*, at the heart of the galaxy Messier 87, and Sagittarius A* (Sgr A*), at the centre of the Milky Way.

Have successfully refilled my water bottle instead of repeatedly grabbing it, realizing it was empty, and placing it back on my desk.

So far today I:
✅ Ate a thing
✅ Took my pills
❌ Drank water

Just had a realization about the game - it's totally a Maslow's Heirarchy Of Needs story.

Devoured "Citizen: Sleeper" last night and absolutely loved it, narratively and mechanically.

Jenn and I have spent the last few days / all of tonight watching "The 10th Kingdom" and it's been a lovely ride through the peak television experience of the year 2000.

Playing anything fun this weekend? I’ve been poking at the Homeworld Mobile beta. It’s definitely Mobile, but also has a good amount of Homeworld.

currents has taken me much longer than i thought it would to finish (mostly because i actually have some patience to get in a suitable amount of testing before pulling the trigger) but it is really, REALLY close....please drop good marketing tactics for a solo dev with a day job

As a Developer Relations Engineer, I don't spend much time actually building games these days. Rather, I help lots of other folks make their VR games better!

Here's the kind of stuff I do!

Also AREA MAN LIVES is coming out on Quest (and Steam) on May 12th, from the lovely folks at Numinous Games.

Be a radio host! Have weird stuff happen! Enjoy the sultry voices of Max Greenfield, Ronan Farrow, and Joel McHale!

I can't talk about any of the things I'm working on, such is the power of an MNDA.

You can just assume I'm giving lots of feedback on things I can't mention.

Mastodon has a verification mechanism, though it looks different from Twitter's. We do not ask for your documents. Instead, if you have a website that you are known by, you can verify that you are the owner of that website.

Link to your Mastodon profile from the website, either through a visible link, or through a <link> tag in the head of the document, with a rel=me attribute, and link back to that page from your Mastodon profile. It should then get a green checkmark, like @Mastodon.

Took a little bit but the "cursor over" effect now works properly for mouse or gamepad.
This honestly took me way too long to figure out, but that's what happens when you're not a gamepad gamer :D

Took one of my ships out for a bounty mission out in the middle of nowhere last night. Very pretty scenery.

The fight went hard; ended up managing to land a missile in his engines and he tumbled from 80km down to the ground. Managed to crawl back home with majorly imbalanced thrusters and pull in for repairs.


Who could have ever predicted that this modern-day digital tulip bubble would pop like the horrible pimple we all said it was, all along.
