Game Development Notes#

Live site build @ Netlify Status
Live site @ ikrima.dev
Github repo @ github.com/ikrima/gamedevguide

Wut is this#

These are my personal notes from the past 4 years that I'm transforming from our internal dev onboarding guide.

I'm aiming to process about one section a day since the conversion from onenote/evernote/confluence is lossy and needs a final human pass to clean up little niggles.

Site Build Instructions#

  • Originally built with gatsby, migrating to mkdocs
  • My notes related to the webdev of the site are in the gitrepo/docs folder
  • Webdev is pita. I never use the live site anymore so ymmv; your best bet experience is cloning and opening locally
  • I use and ✨ recommend ✨ obsidian; no affiliation, it's just free, fast, sparks joy with zero setup (just open the notes folder)
  • foam or vscode are also great alternatives
  • or for the lazy, vscode.dev//gamedevguide or github.dev//gamedevguide
