Wayward: Evolution of the inspection/tooltip system

Wayward's UI has evolved a lot over the years, and in recent years most of those changes have been me redoing things. Recently — over the past two versions — I've been doing a lot of work on the inspection system, trying to make it more powerful for all the cases we need it.

I has website now!

In the past few days I've created this website with the intent to house my portfolio — stories I've written, programming projects I've worked on and still work on, etc. It was a ton of fun to create! It involved a lot of design work which is honestly one of my favourite things to do, iterating on something until it's functional and attractive. And then I had it, I had the perfect place to house all my things, and I could link it on all the websites which previously just linked to my GitHub. That was so much nicer!
