    Thanks for giving it a go!

    I agree with your suggestions around quality of life changes. The display of movement/attack ranges is definitely in need of some love! I need to put together some more icons so that everything is distinct and then I can probably add them along the bottom of the blue border or something.

    Regarding the black box thing, I reckon I know what that is, the upgrades have a minimum level and a maximum level and I bet I'm filtering it where the current level is less than the max level instead of less than or equal to. I'm busy tonight but I'll have a look at that when I get a chance so you can get back to kicking my ass ;)

    I find circling around backwards to keep enemies at arm's reach is the key. One thing I haven't done yet is make it obvious that you can click on the enemies to see their attack radius. If you take it slow, you can generally thread the needle around the triangles' attacks but sometimes you need to just take the hit to get out of the way. With an upgraded chain range you can out-range them and pull them in to shoot them too.

    I finally released my little roguelike project. It's inspired by Hoplite on Android. Basically movement is key, you get an upgrade each level and after 8 levels it just becomes an endless wave defense until you die and set a high score.

    (my best score is 514) (I changed the scoring. My best score is now 134)

    I'm actually not too sure how it affects the smell of the machine. It leaves a fair bit of debris so you'd definitely need to clean it thoroughly

    I roast coffee at home using a bread maker I got on Facebook Marketplace for about $10 and a heat gun I got at a hardware store for about $60 outside (with a fire extinguisher on hand). So far I've burned through almost 2.5kg of green coffee and had a single 200g batch that I enjoyed drinking.

    For me it's definitely more for fun than seriously trying to roast all my coffee intake. I'm trying to replicate extremely high quality light roast filter coffee with an actual pile of junk but I enjoy the process.

    If you have yard space, I'd definitely recommend sourcing some green beans (they're not usually SUPER expensive at least where I live) and give popcorn maker roasting a go, it's good fun! Definitely don't do it inside though, the amount of smoke and chaff that comes off these things is shocking.

    Acid3 Test on Wikipedia for anybody who was wondering what it is. It does look like it doesn't necessarily conform to "modern" Web but it's still a huge milestone!

    The text definitely SEEMS to follow a pattern but I'm trying to avoid reading anything about the game until I finish it because it's so dependent on discovery so I haven't looked in to whether anybody's tried to translate it.

    Before I bought it on PC I did have a bit of a look around RE a switch port but I didn't see anything.

    This game is so well designed it almost makes me angry. The puzzles are great, the guidebook mechanic is super smart and the combat is just the right level of hard as to be challenging but not throw a controller through the screen infuriating. I love it and I'm going to be sad when it's done.

    This is pretty cool because if I'm reading it correctly it's basically just an extension of the spec to send a stream instead of a picture

    I just run Debian because it tends to be rock solid. For any proprietary software (ie steam, games etc) I usually use a Flatpak version.

    Dark Souls and Hollow Knight for the same reason. I love the idea of the games, Iove the worlds, love the art. They both make me so incredibly angry that I just don't enjoy playing them.

    As much as Drew Devault sometimes rubs me the wrong way, I really like Sourcehut's model. One of these days I'll make time to try it out.
