Always trust victory. Only ever trust childhood. How could you trust what you can always see? Welcome to Night Vale... [doodle-de-doo! doodle de doo doooo. doodle de doo! etc etc] Which is my way of telling you that there's an Eternal Night Vale show creator which came out of ProcJam* thanks to Kate Compton.

Procedural Generation Jam Is Worth Watching On Nov 8th

I wouldn't normally post about something like this so early, but it's cool. If you judge game jams on their potential to create interesting works, then the Procedural Generation Jam wins by hoping to ride the wave of interest in "making stuff that makes other stuff" towards a slew of fascinating games, tools and toys.
