It has come to my attention through a game jam I'm hosting (#BloodyJam17), that there are quite a lot of people who'd like to make games, but simply don't know how. Don't worry though, I'm here to provide a load of resources for anyone with 0 experience can get started!
I'm posting the resources as a reply to this post, and I'll be categorizing them by what you'd like to learn, programming, actual gamedev or game design (some of the resources overlap a bit).
Also huge thanks to @neon for helping me gather these lists!
Boosts once again, appreciated!
Indie #gamedev and I try to be productive and do projects but maybe 70% of the time I'm actually browsing memes. Sometimes I do also non-gamedevey projects related to networking and other low-level stuff.
Also pretty artistic if I may say myself but as is with my gamedev habits, I don't tend to finish anything.
I have a website at https://teasca.de and it covers a lot of who I am
Oh and I'm also a trans girl not that I like to especially make that "trans" part a part of my identity but some I might toot something related to it sometimes.

#introductions I'd like to welcome our facebook refugee siblings (and other people that have made it over to mastodon) and just hope you have a swell time!
If you're interested about me, I have an actual introduction-post pinned, also some cool resources for cool gamedev stuff if you'd like to get into #gamedev things!
So yesterday I tried fixing the problem I had by upping the OpenGL support to 3.1
BUT TURNS OUT THAT WAS PART OF THE PROBLEM
Gosh darn 3.0/3.1 isn't supported by some apple computers so I had to turn up the requirement up to 3.3 core, not tha it _really_ matters, but sure does grind my gears that I didn't realize that before.
