Hi! This is a great idea, I've got one zine up already and plans to post a couple of others (just need to pdf-ify them) so I'll submit those too after they're online :) Excited to see more zines on this platform, I think it's a really great space for them and this is a lovely idea to encourage more visibility!

At Least You Actually Own This Zine

I know zines aren't huge on itch.io, but posting this here because I think it covers a topic that is important and relevant in indie games and art! Also, we're totally aware of and fully support itch.io's stance on NFT projects, this is not an NFT project, it's an explainer and criticism of the crypto space. A lot of people on here are probably pretty savvy about this but this is also totally intended to give out to folk who are less online and need an easy explainer.

 At Least You Actually Own This Zine breaks down NFTs and cryptocurrency concepts into easy explanations and presents these alongside the current criticisms of NFTs/Crypto - helping artists, investors and anyone else who's heard of this nonsense to understand what is Actually Going On. Exploring a complex topic using simple no-jargon language and fun illustrations, we've designed this zine to be understood by almost anyone to finally cut through some of the bullsh*t.

Someone you love keeps talking about crypto and you don't really understand? This zine will explain.

Thinking crypto might be a good way to make money, but kinda worried because you're not sure how it all works? This zine will explain.

Heard crypto is bad but don't really know why? This zine will explain.

Feel free to download and redistribute this pdf, as so long as you don't mint it as an NFT we're all good.

Hey! Thanks so much for such detailed feedback. I'm super new to game development so it means a lot to have people playing my game and finding it fun! And well done on getting to the boss. ;) 

Will definitely take the point about controls on board! I think I designed this largely solo without showing other people too often, so I found it hard to judge how much I should explain. I'll take a lot more care and testing over this next time. 

Accessibility I knew was always going to be an issue - all the gameplay is based around colour mixing, and the technique I used for that was going to be difficult to adjust to other colours for people with visual differences. I really wish I'd put more thought into this one, though - I'm sure there would have been ways around it. I'll have to make my next game extra accessible to make up for this one! :P

Super glad you found the difficulty curve successful - I put a lot of time into designing the levels to work in a way that didn't feel unfair. I would have liked to put in an endless mode with random spawns, but every time I tried this it immediately felt like the game was cheap-shotting you. Really happy that this element of the design was appreciated! :)

Thankyou so much for playing and good luck with all your projects!



itch.io page: Disco's Not Dead (download available here!)

DISCO'S NOT DEAD is an arcade tower defense game where you play DJ Harker, defending a haunted club against hordes of spooky ghosts! Use your booth lights to match the colours of the ghosts and melt them. 

There are six kinds of ghost and you only have three colours of lights, so you'll need to cross the beams to mix the colours! The gameplay begins simple bit soon becomes fast-paced and tricky, increasing in speed as the game goes on.

There are four waves, ending with a boss wave, with the game lasting around 3 minutes in total (if you survive!).

This is the first game I've made, I was a near-total newbie to coding and gamedev when I started and learned a whole lot along the way! It's a little unpolished, but I'm happy with how it's turned out and looking forward to moving on to bigger things armed with the skills gained on this project. :) Before this, I only thought of myself as an artist, and now I know I can make games too! Created in GameMaker 1.4.

Thanks for checking it out!
