i made a painful game about negative experiences after coming out as transgender some time ago https://exodrifter.itch.io/gender-dysphoria
Gender Dysphoria v1.1 removes the confusing pausing in the dialog and fixes some bugs, most notably related to some branches not showing up! https://exodrifter.itch.io/gender-dysphoria/devlog/303398/gender-dysphoria-v11-released
I wrote a postmortem for Gender Dysphoria talking about my experience using a pay-what-you-want model for a game on itch. https://exodrifter.itch.io/gender-dysphoria/devlog/300006/pay-what-you-want-sales-and-analytics #gamedev
Just learned about this song (turn on english subtitles for the video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feOq6MWeUXA

I wrote a retrospective on the cancelled game Access, which I worked on for about four years.
As a Khmer person, hearing about this book on the radio last night was a little surreal and striking for me. https://www.npr.org/2021/08/01/1021415438/afterparties-anthony-veasna-so-cambodian-american
Small update for my skeletons. Most notably, after roughly 4 years of development I have decided to cancel Access. Retrospective coming soon. https://www.patreon.com/posts/switching-gears-54329176 #gamedev
Also, I made a new track during my stream last night~
All these things are related to who I am as a person, and I feel like I have a lot of work ahead of me to both preserve these records for the future as well as to really understand what has been recorded before I can really make this game in earnest... Well, it will take a while.
My sister will be bringing those cassette tapes from my parent's home so I can digitize them. Suddenly, I feel like there are so many things that I need to digitize before they are lost. Photos, slides, etc. It's a glimpse into a past that has affected who I am and I need to know
One (perhaps seemingly unrelated) thing are the old cassette tapes that I used to listen to in the car as a kid. They're full of Cambodian music that is both beautifully nostalgic to me as well as mysterious. I don't know how my parents got them. I don't know who the artists are.
