the ✨Special Thanks✨ list
while i definitely have plenty of my own creations i'm proud of (and hope to make more in the future), i also find helping others very fulfilling! games are big messy things that require a lot of labor from a lot of different ppl and i'm always very happy when i'm able to contribute in any small way.
this is a list of every instance (that i'm aware of) of my name being included in the ✨Special Thanks✨ section of a shipped video game (or games-adjacent work of art). in most cases, i probably just provided a little playtesting feedback or otherwise made some minor contribution. whatever i actually did, these folks were nice enough to give me some credit for the time and energy i donated to helping their project ship, so i think it's only fair that i credit them back (and also promote their cool games)
if you happen to know of any games missing from this list, please let me know!
i've decided just now that my ultimate measure of success - like when i'm on my deathbed and deciding if i had a good life or not - is going to be how many times i get a "Special Thanks" in a shipped video game— izzy kestrel (@iznaut) April 2, 2022
credit me for the labor i did in this tweet thread, i dare you
