Who knew databases were so big??
An announcement from the development team behind Zelter is kicking up a bit of community fuss and drama. While they explained the reasoning behind the choice, players- and backers- are mad since the game has seen little development news since mid-2022.
🌲 Hashtag Survival
▻ Our latest Acquired Tastes newsletter featured Romain, developer of Derelicts.
▻ Second Rambles was huuuge and featured a sneak peek of some stuff in the works. Plus a behind-the-scenes snippet of Becca and me out in the wilds of an apple festival.
▻ So I mentioned last time that I was scrapping the old WordPress game directory that Hashtag used to utilize. We’ve had it a long time! This is a huge work in progress, but I’m considering using Notion to house the database with slightly different filters and notes. You can view the work-in-progress database at this link.
Remember that each game card is incomplete unless the card face says Page Status: Complete. I’m the furthest along on the dead/abandoned games, but I hope to finish the other stuff soon. Feedback is incredibly welcome, so hop into the comments or contact me on Discord.

Interesting snippet from the team behind Mr.Prepper. In a nutshell: they added a few minigames to Mr.Prepper, shelved the idea of adding DLC to Mr.Prepper in favor of working on Mr.Prepper 2, and they’re making a new game “Mr. Nomad is a survival base-building, tower defense game set in a post-apocalyptic world. Set a fortified base around your camper, craft, endure brutal zombie raids, hide what is precious to you in an underground bunker, and embark on dangerous missions in search of resources.”
My nerdy bag/EDC side is digging the detail on this backpack carry in The Gold River Project. Appreciate the molle rows on the front, and there’s another picture that shows a cup hanging from the side of the bag. Still very much a work in progress, and I am interested in seeing how it shapes up.
