Connect With Your Creation

Bret Victor -- who has worked on experimental UI concepts at Apple and created the interactive data graphics for Al Gore’s book, Our Choice -- recently gave a keynote at the Canadian University Software Engineering Conference, talking about living your life based on principles, but also demoed a real-time game editor that makes existing coding tools look pretty primitive. Inspired by Victor’s presentation, developer Chris Granger put together a similar live game editor in Clojurescript. Granger’s take on the idea that all changes you make to the code are reflected immediately in the running game. You change a line of code and the game immediately changes right with it. Granger's demo code is on github, and there's a .jar you can grab if you just want to play with the demo.

What Is Gamefilter?

Gamefilter is a community weblog based in spirit and intent on the great work of Matt Haughey and his staff at Metafilter. It's all about sharing links to interesting stuff on the web, but with a narrower focus on gaming-related links -- good stuff that other people might not have already seen -- and talking about them.

Anyone can join for the low low price of zero dollars, and once you're a member, you have the senses-shattering power to post new stuff right from the front end of the site, and talk about that stuff in the comment threads. You don't need an account to read GFi, but as well as giving you The Power To Post, membership also lets you

  • Thank and Favorite all the goodness
  • Build a profile page with all your stuff in one convenient place
  • Send private messages and friend/follow your favorite GFites and their unstoppable Gfiltering style
  • Feel the warm glow of satisfaction in helping grow the community
  • Do all sorts of other neat things, both now and coming in the future!

Gamefilter is part of the growing MefightClub Network of sites, including our forum home, MefightClub itself, FullGlassEmptyClip, our group blog, and Ludic Research Labs, who are a bunch of bastards.
