✨ I'm going to be playing all games in the @[email protected] Midwinter Selects Bundle itch.io/b/291/the-itchio-midwi this week-end.

You get free clips of gameplay and I get to include a link to our already-best-selling bundle every tweet, sounds good?

Can you all send me something that made you smile recently?

(I'm going to be completely lifeless when I land, could use some cheering up).

See you in a few! ✈️ EZY2425

Also, LHR parking is actually 4GBP, not 5.20. I know, because I paid the first driver cash for their trouble. (Turns out, they got a compensation anyway...)

The 20GBP credit is because I contested two 10GBP cancellation fees. Uber doesn't grok "levels", and it took the first two drivers >8 minutes to get to level 4. Uber just assumed I didn't show up and cancelled. Woo.

Omw to my last flight of the day, which feels like the hardest (headache, feels like 3:20AM, etc)

Show thread

finally diving into the Kingsman movie franchise and, phew, it's a lot

it wouldn't be a proper flight if I didn't butler push something while waiting at the gate

Show thread

flying back home today, looking forward to a 16h journey and 7 days of being jetlagged again πŸ‘βœˆοΈ

anyway, please buy the Midwinter Selects Bundle so I can keep coding cool stuff: itch.io/b/291/the-itchio-midwi

(also because these are very good games at a very good price)

this is the "specification file". videos are downloaded once, cached to disk for future use (it took a lot of trial and error)

video processing is ~graph-based, this is the whole code (I haven't open sourced vip yet, it's a custom framework on top of github.com/itchio/goff )

Show thread

I wrote a custom video editing framework (in Golang, using ffmpeg) for the promo banner currently on itch.io

it takes a .toml list of video URLs + timestamps, trims, resizes, and encodes as yuv420p H.264 with good presets

had a lot of fun!

Any good games about surviving the sudden disappearance of the sun?
