Howdy! I’m Rodrick (Rod for short). I’m a full-time student majoring in game development. I make art, make games, and make websites.

I am into a variety of hobbies and things. My hobbies range from bookbinding to drawing (digitally and traditionally) to writing and reading to web and game development to pacing around in circles thinking about my OCs for hours at a time. I try to play games myself, but I end up watching others play them most of the time. Visual novels, interactive fiction, and 2D RPGs are the game types I’m most into. I enjoy a story with what I’m doing (also I’m prone to motion sickness so I don't play many 3D games).

I have multiple sites. Some are long gone or under construction, while others are still up and running. My sites all fall under my two domains (deadinsideartist.art and shroom.ink) and their subdomains. They range from being completely handwritten to being made with static site generators. I’m self-taught and young so I’m constantly learning new stuff and trying different tools. I enjoy being able to see the things I create from anywhere and on anything as long as I have an internet connection.

Random facts about me:
  • I have 39 tabs open in my browser as I write
  • I’m currently drinking non-alcoholic sparkling grape cocktail out of a Hatsune Miku shot glass
  • My internet died twice while I was writing this
  • Talking in new places makes me nervous :sad:

Don’t ask me how I found Melonland. Clicking through different neocities sites and on different buttons got me here. For quite a while I’ve been wanting to be a part of a web development community whose focus wasn’t around “the best SEO” or “the types of projects that’ll help you get noticed by recruiters”. I started doing web development for the same reason I started doing art: for my own enjoyment and fun. It’d be cool to be able to get a job in the future with my skills, but I’d personally like to forget capitalism exists whenever I can.

Ah yes, I too am guilty of this.

There are quite a few game developers on the forum now - Maybe we should make some sort of arcade to showcase games :ozwomp:

Doubt. I worked to clear out a bunch of my tabs yesterday, otherwise there would've been a lot more. My tab issued has gotten so bad that I had to get this browser extension to keep track of it all and sort through it.

You're too kind. Also bookbinding is a lot easier than you'd expect. The main issue is having the patience and time to do it. It can be quite tedious.

I love your use of colors in your post!
Thank you! I wanted to make the text snazzy while still being simple

This seems like a good idea, I'd like to see what others have been working on, in terms of games. (and i'd like to plug plug plug plug plug plug)
