Nic's development tweets

I tweet a lot about the development of Fringe Planet - as well as talking about game development in general. Twitter is fantastic for getting the message out, but tweets always slowly fade out of view as time goes past. So I've decided to add this section to the website, which contains everything I've tweeted. You'll find a lot of information about both me personally as well as the game.

Good morning Twitter! Happy Wednesday to you all :-) It's surprisingly sunny today compared to the massive downpours we had yesterday - garden is look a lot better for it :-) I've got a meeting in 15mins and then it's onto #gamedev - what are your plans for today folks?

Last tweet o' the night folks :-) Be safe and have fun o7

(this is a joke by the way, and a terrible bit of advice. I guess, unless, well if your writing is REALLY REALLY good, then maybe then)

Writing a #Discord game bot - part 1

Players may frequently spam bot commands, so to encourage them to read your carefully constructed texts and appreciate the simple game interface, you should limit the frequency they can interact with the bot #gamedev

Current Status : Being meowed at because I won't turn the rain off :-/

Have you heard the title music for @FringePlanet ? it's beautifully haunting and some amazing work by @MendelBouman - incredibly excited to see what is coming up :-) (there are rumours of location and event based dynamic music :-O) #gamedev #ost #music

I'm not gonna lie, it still feels incredibly cool to be able to post things on Steam like this :-) (I am very easily entertained it would seem :))

Time to munch some lunch - three bean salad of tasty healthiness (if you exclude the disgustingly calorific homemade croutons and the cheese cubes I put in it) - what are you folks munching on today?

I greatly enjoy branding guidelines with made up colour names :-) Something silly inside something so sensible and boring - it makes my day :-D

Does anyone else getting the feeling that the Steam store backend is a lot of old forum plugins that have been taped together with duct tape? Like a bunch of old code that has now completely grown out of the initial scope but folks are to scared to touch it? oO #gamedev

And what good would a spooky name be without a spooky profile picture :-) #October1st

Spooky name mode engaged! #spookyseason

Good morning Twitter - It's #Ocotober1st - the spooky month has finally arrived :-D Yay! :-) Got some interesting things planned for @FringePlanet promotion this month :-) What are your plans for today folks? #gamedev

Last tweet for this evening folks :-) I'll catch you all tomorrow - be safe and have fun o7 #gamedev
