Ludosynth is August Smith's internet hovel.


I’m a poet, musician, writer, and very amateur game designer.

why a site like this?

The internet is decaying into a nightmarish network of monetization, walled-garden psuedo-monopoly platforms, bloodthirsty data harvesting, digital asset accretion, and brain-frothing personality poison. I'm against all that! This meta-manifesto and its hyperlinks helped articulate this idea to me and is why this website is intentionally minimalist and relatively hermetic.

okay? and...?

Hmm. Ah. Don't be rude!
