I suppose I should be directing my bitchiness in a healthier direction. SO this is a request if anyone knows a community like Polycount that isn't for capitalist bootlicker scumfucks who like 70 hour crunch time shifts. Or perhaps an indie community that isn't filled with TIGsource e-celebs who turn out to be white knight misogynists. Or something like the micro game dev communities that aren't filled with annoying 4channers. Or ok maybe im getting too specific.

Good indie game/design community PLS HELP

@mirzaba how generous is your definition of "good"? ;^) @minego and i make some indie games (and give them away, complete with source :^)
smogheap.github.io/

@penduin @minego was referring more to communities rather than teams. I like your your projects.

@mirzaba @minego cool! in that case, consider us a very small and quiet community, but more than happy to include anyone for whom "making games just for fun" sounds like a good idea. ;^)

@mirzaba @minego not to imply anyone even within smogheap shouldn't or can't sell their games, etc. i just personally don't find selling stuff fun, so i concentrate on the making and sharing. :^)

@penduin @minego
I mean, I probably wanna split free vs paid stuff 50/50 in the grand scheme. Tho I mean like I don't really do it as a hobby, but in the super srs compulsion kind of way. also i would consider it to be like, career.
