I keep an ongoing list of links to useful or fun game design and production topics. This is not exhaustive by any means – just some interesting links. A lot of these are links saved from posts on Reddit’s r/gamedev subreddit.
Disclaimer: I haven’t used a lot of the tools or followed all of the tutorials. Most of this was saved “in case I need it later,” so I can’t vouch specifically for anything. If you think any of these are bad resources, please let me know!
