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.

You know you've been hyper focused when you work straight through lunch. Which is naughty and is something I really shouldn't do (mostly because it can become a habit) - remember no matter how fascinating the #gamedev is - make sure to eat!

*giggles in #webdev*
(p.s. first time I've seen something like this in the wild)
(p.p.s. I'm entertained very easily it would seem)

Just got an email about this event, aimed at kids to get some #gamedev exercise during #lockdown - and very happy to see it's BSL Interpreted :-) #a11y


The building itself wasn't fully abandoned and it was used as a mortuary chapel as the graveyard was still active. The graveyard itself has long been associated with body snatchers and rumours of it being built on a leaper colony doesn't help it's reputation...

There has been repeat desecration of the site, graves opened, bones re-arranged, altars being made (even reaching mainstream news in the 1960s for the repeat attacks) - resulting in the thought that witches or satanists where using the site for rituals

In 2018, after repeat attacks on the site, the trust in charge of it decided to use some of the gravestones as a pathway in a local project. Response to this was very mixed. A fascinating location to visit, it's popular with ghost hunters and urban explorers. #FolkloreThursday

So for this #FolkloreThursday I'll be looking into some more local folk lore - The Church of St Mary in Clophill (a village a few miles away from Luton) - a small church thought to have been built around 1350. A now long abandoned church is still a hot bed for folklore...

It served as the village church for many hundreds of years, with plans to extend it as the village grew in size. Alas, it's rector died in 1843 meaning these plans were never acted upon and the new rector decided that a new church should be built...

Good morning folks :-) The sun is shining here and I'm already to start the day - my TODO list is ready and my cuppa is at a drinkable temperature - whatever you are up to today, best of luck with it :-) #gamedev

Tis been a very long day, but last TODO has been crossed off :-) But now I fancy a nap. I'm guessing I'm getting old... #gamedev

Me: I've go it on PC, spent 100s of hours on it. I don't need it on switch
Also me: but you can play it handheld, on the train
Also me: but I'm not leaving the house, so I don't need it
Also me: you could play it in the tent when it gets hot this summer

Would you step through? #gamedev
