Oh hey, I should post this here too! I made a CSS-only async chat by using background-image requests to send data and long-running http requests to return it.
Grabbed Dead Cells since it's on sale and was hooked within the first 10 minutes.
This is the game that Rogue Legacy promised to be but ultimately failed to pull off (though they tried very hard and it's still a pretty good game).
It's a Castlevania rogue-like that has "checkpoints" so that you don't lose ALL of your progress when you die, but ultimately you progress through the game but getting more skilled and learning patterns.
Also, the dev company is a worker owned co-op, so... ✊

...here's a WriteFreely account...
...here's a Plume account...
...here's a Friendica account...
...and you can follow all of them from Mastodon.
Just click on the @ link to see their profile, and then click on Follow.
#Avengers #Endgame was groovey with interlocking fan service - but most of it didn't rock me emotionally, (maybes a little at the end) but I listened to #KevinSmith do his review on his Fatman on Batman #podcast and him tearing up as he explains some of the moments, had me out in sympathy on my commute this morning!
Here is the vid of his review (warning: SPOILERS in the vid!)
It's a game I come back to, because I can explore the single player story & character building options, but also the multiplayer wasn't a bad customisable dungeon crawler with about 18 unique classes with tailored skill trees & weapons to build and modify.

Junethack is a month-long #nethack tournament running on multitude of servers. A lot of forks are represented—13 last year. You can play solo or gather your friends into a clan; there are trophies for both individuals and groups.
Anyone else participates? @kawa perhaps? (sorry for highlighting, but you're the only one roguelike person on Fediverse that I'm aware of).
Folks, I’m seeing a lot of people recommend setting xpinstall.signatures.required to false to fix the Firefox extensions issue.
⚠️ DO NOT DO THIS! ⚠️
It disables signature checking on extensions which means that you open yourself up to malicious extensions if you install any new ones or if you have auto updates on.
Or go the officially recommended (but less private) route: https://mastodon.ar.al/@aral/102039553570119536
I've updated the switching.social poster, to make it as simple and easy to read as possible:
The idea of the poster is to go on community noticeboards, so that more people in real life realise there are alternatives to what big tech offers them.
Feedback on design and content etc welcome.

✅ Allow Firefox to send technical and interaction data to Mozilla
✅ Allow Firefox to install and run studies
(Don’t forget to turn these off right after your extensions show up again. I restarted the browser but not sure if that’s necessary.)
If you don't want to give Mozilla more information about you than they really need, you don't have to enable the Studies for the certificate fix. Below is a direct link to what they install.
Here are a few links about it:
There is a #firefox bug that has caused all extensions to become disabled:
A temporary workaround:
- Navigate to about:debugging
- Click the 'Load Temporary Add-on' button
- Navigate to the .xpi file in your profile directory select it and open it.
Or just download the extensions you want from https://addons.mozilla.org/:
- Right click on the 'Add to Firefox' button
- Choose 'Save Link As' from the menu
- Save the .xpi file somewhere handy
- Open it using the above technique.
