Hi, Fediverse! We're Null Signal Games.
We're an all-volunteer games collective organized as a nonprofit. We're in it for the love of Netrunner, so we release all our expansions for the game as free print-and-play files, alongside options for more professionally produced sets of cards.
You can learn more about us (and Netrunner) on our website here:
We're happy to be here!
The ninth annual international Gender Census 2022 is now open until 13th August 2022!
It's for anyone whose gender (or lack thereof) isn't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.
Heyo! It's been a while since I was here (social is scary 😅), but I'm part of Australia's first videogame workers co-operative (no hierarchies!), and we've just released our first game!
It's a challenging puzzle game about finding palindromes at your own pace. No timer, no text, no nasty money-making psychological tricks. Just a straight-up chill game.
cw: transphobia. But good historical info.
UK, focussed, but defs had impact elsewhere. Heckin' wild that the only reason we have this is because rich people were afraid of the implications for male heirs. <_<
Still, good read.

Actually, I wonder what holidays would look like in this anarchist life sim? 🤔
Oh, holiday good, have presents and avoid relatives or whatever.
We have all these pleasant life sims, like The Sims, Animal Crossing, Stardew Valley, etc. But they all have capitalism assumed.
It would be cool to see an anarchist life sim. I struggle to understand social and political stuff, and wanna' see what life would be like that way. And I bet that it would help others understand what anarchists want.
I kinda' want there to be a federated version of Tiktok. This might sound weird if you're not on it (or if you're stuck on "straight tiktok"), but I have learned so much more there than any other social media platform. Especially about my own disabilities, but many other things, too.
They're having a crackdown on sexual stuff and kink stuff, too, but moving to mastodon doesn't work for that as well as it does for instagram.
So the Japanese Government is holding a hearing on matters concerning same-sex marriage, which is still illegal there. It's being livestreamed and they're "gauging interest" based on how many people watch it. HOWEVER the stream is "coincedentially" held at a time when most people in Japan will be at work and unable to watch it. It starts in 2 hours, here's a link. Please be there and spread the word if you can. Use a VPN. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LQp5trJVIJM
Hearing some of my favourite people in games journalism calling Necrobarista's dialogue "unrealistic" was a real punch in the face that reminded me they are only American after all.
Anyway this is a great piece. If you're American and like games, read it.
Here it is: my piece on the frustrations of trying to create English-language media outside of the American cultural bubble. Enjoy.
Queer disabled thing, trying out this mastodon thingo, because birdsite makes my brain sad.
A Mastodon server friendly towards anti-fascists, members of the LGBTQ+ community, hackers, and the like.
