    Our world has been reshaped by this pandemic. Instead of talking about all of the terrible things, I thought for today we'd focus on one of the silver linings of this horrible event. Video games. Well, the video game industry. We've all been turning to old favorites and new adventures to escape and comfort us and it SHOWS. Look at Among Us and Fall Guys. Small games that may never have had the hype they now do . In fact, this is probably the BEST time to launch your own game and I will tell you why!

      Theory idea: hidden lore of KSP/KSP 2

    3. Ignacio Ruiz Valle

      Don’t forget that part of the succes of Fall Guys and Among Us was because they were funny to watch. That made streamers play it more than usual. More streams means more people get to know the game (marketing). That is key

        @SamiDaDerpYT I'm an active medical provider who has treated COVID patients. He has consistently contributed himself. Did you feel more safe when he said you didn't need masks. This was a lie that he even admitted later. How about when he said the more masks you wear the better? How about get the shot (I've had both and I had the virus before they were available) but you still can't live your life? How do you feel about the CDC saying months ago that lockdowns are bad and yet they are still going on? The best one was when he, an epidemiologist (supposedly), said that herd immunity wasn't an option. If you know just the very basic fundamentals of how viruses work you can understand how stupid that sounds while pushing people to get a vaccine. I'll standby for your stupid comment.

      3. SamiDaDerpYT

        You saying fauci is stupid? People like you make this pandemic longer and worse.

      "Promote Yourself" I have a video game idea that I've been trying to get on paper. With little coding skills, I'm learning.

    14. Garret

      I'm a person that exists... I think... This whole thing I call life might just be an illusion created by the universe and I don't really exist. Who knows... Maybe this is just my imagination while I'm still not even born and in my mother's womb... I have these thoughts daily for some reason. Maybe it's the universe telling me something. I guess I'll never know (unless the womb thought is correct).

    15. Day_Breez0

      I have a couple comics I need an illustrator

    16. Roger Stelmach

      "Promote yourself" ive been intersted in music for a long time now (mainly rock and hip hop amongst others) but i just cant do beats and ive just realized since covid that i can use my talent and something i love to do, to make a living. Im a freshman in high school and just starting to learn how to make music. Buuuuuut like i said i have no clue how to do beats and im not entirely sure how to get started on writing songs. If anyone can help me with this that would be amazing. I have the paper i just need the pen.

      1. NoVa BG

        I have a technique that can make you be a lyrical genius. When there is lyrics, there are words. Every word has syllables and that is the most important thing to remember. Mostly people use words that contain one syllable of every melody of the song but it doesn't mean that the whole song will have to be one syllables of every melody, others would use a word that has 3 syllables that can work on 3 melodies. It is very hard to explain it here so i just hope you understand why i mean.

    22. MrWubzy

      Promote Yourself: When I was a kid I wrote many short stories and poems, some of which ended up being published in local newspapers. I've had an idea for a video game plot that I've had brewing for years and now that I'm mostly stuck at home, I'd like to get that out there. I also have a tiny bit of experience with RPG Maker (take from that what you will) and I have a heavy interest in learning coding and graphic design. I'd love to be a part of any video game project. Thanks for reading.

    23. Melony Mutou

      Promote Yourself: It's never in very big need, but I tend to know my way around plotlines for stories. I somehow have this amazing ability to come up with ideas that bring together a plot/story in amazing ways with multiple different really cool connections, some that I don't even notice until down the line myself. You may think I'm joking with this as a reference, but me and a friend have been roleplaying together for over 10 years and I create 90% of our plots and steer them, and I like to think I do it really well D=. Basically, I'm good at IMPROVISING in a storyline. So if anyone needs that kind of help or something. Would love to work on a LGBT Dating Sim someday maybe?

    24. Melony Mutou

      I'd have to argue that the gardening/hydroponics business also had a pretty big upsurge due to COVID. Everyone wants/wanted to grow their own food (especially since there was a scare about food becoming scarce and disappearing off store shelves), and gardening is also an outdoors hobby you can even Social Distance while doing AND spend time outside which some people weirdly seem to enjoy, so it had a pretty big lift, too. ...But so did the drug/alcohol industry =D.

      Is it weird that I keep seeing The Stupendium in Mat's cut-out characters almost once a video these days? example: 14:08 in this video, the leftmost cut-out Edit: I realize it might seem like a weird coincidence, but note the signature glasses and moustach, along with the side-part and classic Stupendium lambchops

    36. nameless dork

      That is kinda inspiring. It may also explain why a 2-3 year old Japanese exclusive indie game had popped out in the US this year.

I also have been building this completely alone when I was planning on having a team of people from my school. I have made a lot of progress and it’s still a work in progress. Being a high schooler building a project of this scale has been very impactful to me. Who ever is still here. Thank you for reading this.

      There is LESS entertainment now? I wasn't aware that game were disapearing? Don't you mean less "new" forms of entertainment? Because new games still releases every weeks

    48. BeyondGalaxy

      Promote yourself : I'm in middle school and I have coding as a hobby. I'm currently working on my dream game in Scratch with my irl friend. I have a part in the writing, game design, and coding section of the game. While my friend has a role in doing the art and also coding section of the game. The game is an RPG (the graphics is planned to be pixel art, but it might change). The mechanics in the game is a mix of mechanics of the games I like.

      1. BeyondGalaxy

        I just wrote a paragraph lol

      2. BeyondGalaxy

        @Super Leaf 64 Thanks, also btw, I'm planning to switch to Godot since the project is somewhat big and I need it to be as smooth as possible.

    49. Daniel Blaga

      Promote yourself: I'm a budding game designer and I've now started geting into game development as well. I love creating lived-in worlds with fun interactive setpieces everywhere. Lately I've started to learn game development to bring my ideas to life, but progress is slow. I can also 3d model and create PBR compatible textures. If you're someone more coding-focused and interested in game development I'm sure we could make a great team.

    51. Stefan Games

      "promote yourself" I'm an aspiring developer who recently, with a friend who is a coder, has begun work on a project we've been talking about for a while now. To put it simply it's an RPG with lots of freedom in character builds, that takes place in a randomly generated but largely unique and everchanging dungeon, mixed with a few social element mechanics. The two big emphases we have in terms of themes are randomness and freedom. I guess the question I'm asking is if anybody would be interested in actually playing something like that?

    55. 「It Just Works」

      I hope the pandemic somehow contributes to a second video game crash. This industry is in desperate need of a reset.

    56. Grim Reaper

      I wish development would stay slowed down a bit then we might get even better games than we already get

      Pretty sure Xbox plans to XP their already released games, turning out DLC for as long as the fans are buying. It seems the direction MS needs to take to take the newly purchased Bethesda out of their Game Pass lawsuit, and all the small Xbox developers have started buzzing excitedly the past few months.

      I like how he's giving indie devs a space to promote here :) Promote Yourself: Release my first game in Early Access on Steam last year - Dream Knights, a 2D platformer in an illustrative style of art. Developed using Construct 2. Currently developing the first update and preparing for full release out of early access. Going to be developing a 3D first person walking simulator with a horror theme in Unreal Engine after this. I am also a musician that plays keyboard, bass and guitar and I'm thinking of getting into developing a new animation when I have time. When I'm not doing any of this, I also paint with oil or acrylics on canvas.

      1. Super Leaf 64

        Nice do you have discord?

    75. Distrar Subvoicar

      "Promote yourself" I'm a translator and indie dev, looking to translate other people's indie games into Spanish and Agirowen (my favorite languages), since my indie game is taking a long time to make due to having to program a complex system from scratch and I want something easier and productive to do during times when I'm mentally stuck regarding programming my own game (I'm way better at translation than programming, heh)

      1. Distrar Subvoicar

      Relating to the promote yourself thing: I've actually gotten a fanfiction i'm writing on Wattpad, but currently it's on hiatus due to lack of motivation and other irl stuff. The fanfiction is planned to come in a trilogy, with perhaps a 4th book if people enjoy the first three. Currently i'm still writing the first one and it's still on hiatus again, due to lack of motivation. It's called Crossover Sagas and you can find it on wattpad (If you want i can post a link to the hiatused story.) Crossover Sagas Status: hiatus Official Book titles: Book 1, Hoperise (on hiatus) Book 2, Fatalshot (not out) Book 3, Title to be determined (not out)

      If the virus is so deadly (and all due respect to people who have died to it) then why haven't all of the anti-maskers died yet? Surely they would be since it was mandatory to wear them by the federal government for risk of exposure or transmission. So why aren't they all dead?

      1. Super Leaf 64

        Their brains are so dead there's nothing left covid to kill

      2. Emma

        It's more deadly towards elderly people. And most people recover from covid-19 Like not everyone who gets it dies lol Also wearing a mask doesn't protect you, it's meant to protect people around you. So in theory everyone will be protected. So in a public space where everyone else is wearing a mask, the anti maskers are spreading it to people (I'm not a doctor just a person with some knowledge)

      My Brother worked on a game whenever we were at a place that is out vacation home. I really liked the game idea and it had Multiplayer. Although one year he didn't and found out all the progress for the game was gone even though he only really worked on it at vacation he did quite a bit. He had a story for it... Map ideas and more... I have been wanting him to continue it since 2019...
