With coronavirus causing more talk about Universal Basic Income, here’s a little rant from me about why everyone should get something like £1,000 per month.
UBI is cool because people who don’t want to work can sit at home and play video games and drink beer and still *support the economy by doing so*. They will still buy shit. People who do want to work and start businesses will have more options and the ability to take some risks, since their minimum living needs will be met.

But as the only per
Hey guys, I’m chatting with EBF modders and trying to figure out what is possible and what isn’t.

We’ve also got the debugging tools to view errors and variables while Flash games are running.
A lot can already be done with that, but it’s still somewhat limited, and adding completely new animations, for example, is more trouble than it’s worth. So I’m thinking about releasing the full compilable source code for my games, starting with EBF3, and the
Kupogames, how is your website going to work after flash dies? My computer doesn't support steam, nor am I am I able to pay for the games anyways, but it supports flash. Are you going to make something for us who can't play steam? Like those using a (Non-school) Chromebook or those who can't pay? Or is the website going to die with flash
