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.

How do we control a place? @FringePlanet is on Kickstarter - check it out here :

(p.s. tried to do a dramatic reading of this, but I can't stop myself from saying "never surrender!" at the end - every time!)

Eeeep :-O

Gotta chomp that ore! :-)


Just cackled loudly to myself and said "It's just so silly, it may just work". All that was missing was an ominous clap of thunder. This should be a very interesting #indiedevhour this evening :-) #gamedev

Day is zooming past super quickly - always the way alas when you are busy :-) But the #gamedev is progressing nicely - how is your day going?

Good morning Twitter :-) Hope you are doing well :-) Today I've got a bit a #gamedev I want to do, as well as spreading the word of the Kickstarter :-) What are your plans for today?

(p.s. Kickstarter link: - yay that is half the work done for today :-))

Last tweet o' the night folks - very productive day (planned) for tomorrow :-) Be safe and have fun - tis curry time for me :-D I'll catch you all on the flip side o7

So had a bunch of new followers :-) Hey folks :-) My name is Nic and I'm a solo #gamedev writing a survival simulator game inspired by #Rimworld and the works of #Lovecraft - feel free to check out my #Kickstarter :-) It tells you a lot about the game :-)

Thanks for all the replies and votes :-)

So I've actually been asked this by a lot of folks - @FringePlanet is made with @unity3d. The more you know :-)

So, this idea has been universally called silly by folks I have explained it too. HOWEVER, though it *is* silly - it is also something that could make a big difference. So I'm working on it right now :-) Details most likely tomorrow :-)

"This idea is either very stupid or a stroke of genius."

(p.s. actual idea doesn't really involve interdimensional portals)
(p.p.s. well it sorta does)
