I'm a French engineer and artist.
While I'm searching for ways to engineer anything but social or ecological regression, I make or contribute to Free/Libre and Open Source tools and I make art mostly through my games.

Work and Creations

Instructions

In this action-adventure game the goal is to reach the deepest floor! At each floor you have to find a key and the exit. You can also get some pickaxes, maps, and compasses along the way to help you, but be quick, since on each floor, you are on a timer!

Minimal

Minimal is a browser extension to experience a minimal, less attention grabbing internet experience. Internet should be a tool, not a trap.

Minimal is driven by core values:

  • Users must actively make choices by themselves.
  • Users should easily find the content they are searching for on a page, not the content a platform wants them to see.
  • Service providers can convince users to use their platform, but only through their services' inner quality.

This extension is being developed for the greater good, it is a free and open-source software, you can check its code and contribute on gitlab.

An intense mash-up

This City-Building game also being a puzzle and dexterity one, will push you to your limits without bothering you with the complicated issues to handle that usually comes with traditional city-building simulations.

SitCoin

SitCoin is a personal currency to balance the time you spend moving and the time you spend sitting.

You can track your SitCoin balance using the SitCoin app.

"Sylvie.photos" is the website and gallery I made to display all the photos, montages and artpieces of Sylvie Pantalacci:

Plenitude

I take pictures to capture the magic of a moment or the beauty of a place and I edit and assemble them in montages to emphasize the atmospheres, the harmonies of colors. I write tales and legends to enrich the images with words often coming from childhood.

My work is achieved either by associating pictures, or by duplicating them identically, or by opposing them, confronting them.

In each case, the process allows me to convey the emotions felt during the shooting, these emotions that inspire my simple poems.

Take a moment to feel plenitude while browsing through the photos and videos.

Random Audio Stream Player Nodes for Godot Engine

This plugin will add Random Audio Stream Player Nodes (standard, 2D and 3D) that can be used as normal Audio Stream Player Nodes with the added ability to play randomly audio from an array of audio streams with the possibility to choose the random strategy and to randomize the volume and the pitch.

Install

This is a Godot Engine project that can be imported in godot and features a demo using a Random Audio Stream Player 3D to play randomly walking sound effects from an array of 8 possible sounds. (Sounds are made by me, Tim Krief and are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.)

To use the plugin in your own project you can copy all the files in addons/ to the addons/ folder of your project and enable the plugin in Godot. Complete instructions are available here: Installing plugins (GodotDocs)

The add-on is also available in the Godot Asset Library that can be accessed directly from the Engine as shown in the demonstration video I've made.

Why and how to use this add-on?

I have made a video about this add-ons, its purpose and an example showing you how it can be used, you can watch it here.

F.A.N.S. Framerate Advance Notice System

The Framerate Advance Notice System lets you know the available framerate options on a Youtube video by hovering its thumbnail.

How it works: when you install it and refresh your tabs pointing to a youtube.com page, when hovering a thumbnail, the browser will actually dynamically load the raw html source from the video page to get the framerate information.

This game features motion sickness without even using VR

A game about boat flying to space due to the weather [insert physics proof here] and the player trying to stay on it, with bad control and collision spicing up the challenge!

Goal:

  • Stay on board even if the boat is going to space (your score is your altitude)

This game was made in 10 days, for the dragonjam2017. The theme was space and sea, so here's a boat which goes into space. It's my first game in 3D and I am proud of it...

The Crunchless Challenge is an open event where you are invited to join the challenge to make a proper game sustainably, without crunching. In February 2021 I've decided to make a game in a 35 hours work week during what I called the "One Week Crunchless Challenge" and it was so interesting and instructive that I decided to hold a new one! This time around, It's open to all and we'll be able to take as much time as we want during a full month, but there's a catch, we have to decide how much time beforehand and stick to it!

If you ever took part of a game jam before, this is totally different:

  • No competition
  • No rating
  • No ranking
  • No required theme announced at the start
  • Not required to create everything from scratch during the challenge duration
  • No feeling bad because you decided to go outside, eat and sleep!
  • You choose your own sustainable time schedule:

    • You should not overwork yourself: - Spread your work into reasonable sessions.

      • Do not schedule too much per week. 35 hours a week seems like a good upper limit.
      • It's okay to go as low as 1 hour a day if you already have a busy schedule.

      • You could start at any time in November if you prefer dedicating less time to the challenge.

        • Try to set the last day of November as the last day of your schedule, so that we all finish at the same time.
        • Do not choose a schedule that doesn't fit the scope of your idea, or an idea with a scope that doesn't fit your schedule.
        • Stick to your schedule. You can decrease the allocated time if needed during the challenge, but you shouldn't spend more time than what you planned, it would be crunching.
  • Making a good game-play loop is only one side of the challenge, you must also plan: - Polish, Reliability and Accessibility

    • Branding / Visual Identity
    • Communication / Marketing
    • Time management / Scope
  • You are expected to actually put up your game for sale at a sustainable price at the end of the challenge.

  • You can work alone or as a team (You can use the community tab to look for a team)

At the end of the challenge, if you end up making something you are proud to call "the game I/we made" and proud to put it up for sale, by managing your time in a way that respects what you planned at the beginning, without having to crunch, then you succeed.

You are highly encouraged to:

  • Use Free/Libre and Open Source tools to make your game. By using, contributing and supporting FLOS tools, more and more of the tooling we need to actually start making games are being shared and worked on by everyone instead of being something all teams have to either make themselves or become dependent on other companies to get.
  • Do not sell your game for less that you think it should be. By trying to get a slice of the pie at all costs, some game industry practices made the users massively undervalue what games should be worth. If we don't want to be forced to get money by crunching to make more half-baked games, or by psychologically manipulating users into spending money for in-game currencies, or by selling their attention span through ads, we have to act now and we have to act as a group, by all selling our games at proper prices.
  • Document your process. Make regular posts, stream your work sessions or shoot videos, following your journey, showing you planning and sticking to your plans, or having to change the plans and why.
  • Make a Postmortem post and declare if you succeeded the challenge or not and why.
  • Reuse, recycle! Take that old project or idea that you've been putting off and work on that.
  • Have Fun!
