A Snippets Delayed Is Still a Snippets. April 15, 2023.
Better late than never. Unless my hard drive fails again.
❗If you backed Forever Skies on Kickstarter, check your email for the supporter survey.
‼️ If you're an Interloper player in The Long Dark, read this Dev Diary. I appreciate the way they support their player base and listen to feedback. (April Dev Diary)
❕A little bit of job crossover, but! If you're a creator making stuff for The Infected, don't forget to tag @InfectedDev on Twitter so that I see it and share it! (Plus, give that account a follow.)
‣ For those not in the Discord- I had my main hard drive fail last weekend, so that was a big kick in the ass. Plus, I lost a bunch of crap. So this week was mostly spent reinstalling programs and setting up profiles and settings.
‣ I did a huge pass over the Steam curator page, which involved tweaking reviews and getting more games classified on the Hashtag Survival subgenre list. It's not 100% and will constantly evolve, but I think it looks heckin' good.
‣ Site work: Finally threw Nightingale on the website. Swapped the domain pointed to this site from Sifner to HashtagSurvival.com, which leaves the .net version pointing at the website with the directories. Dee completed her pass-through of tags and filters on the main index, and Becca did a pass-through on release dates and index featured images.

It's interesting to see some folks starting to get a bit of attitude towards Nightingale progress reports - mirroring what I've said about it being primarily pictures and a bunch of rambling, nothing concrete. Though the comparison to Dead Matter made me chuckle, I wonder if some folks would have been so snotty if the video presenters had been men. Maybe I'm just being cynical today. (Steam News)
