Fin ‘N’ Kit DevLog #1

The Moo team is working on updating Fin ‘N’ Kit – an old mobile game I made two years ago with Gideros and Lua. Because of some of the constraints with Gideros when it comes to PC support, I’ve spent the day creating a Fin ‘N’ Kit C++ project using my Kuko framework, which is …

Angry Rachel

I’m really bad at writing stories. I wish I were better, so I could make an altgame about what it’s like being a woman in Computer Science, and common experiences people experience. ;/

Moosader, LLC

As of July 31, 2015, Moosader has officially been registered as an LLC in the state of Kansas. Since this is still all completely new to me, I’m going to keep a blog about what I’ve been doing as I figure everything out. Oy.

Other Stories

I want to finish the two unfinished Android games that I began last year, Delfino & Katyuno and Fantazio de Esperanto, so that I can work on my language learning RPG, but also so that I can try to collaborate with other people to make some games. Specifically, I want to try to find people …

Speak Esperanto as you would like to speak it.

Mi vidis tiun ĉi fadenon hodiaŭ, kaj mi vidis iun, kiun mi ofte spertas rete. Malbonkoruloj. Ofte, Esperantistoj deziras priparoli Esperanton, kaj malofte, Esperantistoj parolas pri iuj ajn aferoj.  Pro tio, Esperantistoj senĉese disputas pri la parolado de la lingvo, kaj insultas unu la alian, ĉar persono A ne parolas same kiel persono B. Fek …

Language Selection in Video Games

I like supporting multiple languages in my video game projects. Usually, I’m focused on English and Esperanto, since that’s what I speak, but there’s no reason other languages can’t be supported. Usually on websites, I see flags used to represent language options – as an English speaker, the flag is usually either the U.S. flag …

Asexuality in Esperanto

Trying to describe one’s sexuality and romantic orientation can be rather a mouth-full in Esperanto. It’s not quite as mono-syllabic as saying “straight”, “gay”, “bi”, and so on. I, in particular, have a difficult time remembering terms I’ve seen suggested to describe asexual people in Esperanto, so I’m going to keep this blog post so …

Why I find myself wanting to leave the software development field.

I love Computer Science. I love programming video games. I love building cool websites. But I’ve been working professionally for 6 years now, and I’ve never been happy with any job I’ve had. A few years ago, I attempted to escape this career path and explore an alternative, which did not work out. Running out …

Rayto: Language Fantasy Dev Log #1

What is Rayto? Now that life is beginning to calm down a bit, I’ve been working on gaining momentum with my game development again. My current project is called “Rayto: Language Fantasy”, which I’m writing with C++, SDL2, and Lua 5.2. Once I get more work done, I’ll post a video about it, but right …

On Being a Woman and Negotiating Salary

I originally posted this to a different blog of mine, rather than my more visible one here, because this is such an awkward topic. Honestly, I’m afraid of being shamed (“It’s your own fault you’re not getting paid fairly – you never asked!” sort of thing), but I think that it’s also important to get …
