The new production pipeline is in full swing and so is shorter, more frequent releases. This update gives smileys an overhaul, gives more performance updates, fixes various emoji and adds a few new ones.
After an incredible amount of work in the production pipeline, I’m finally ready to start making small and frequent releases instead of the huge releases of the past. This release is partly a proof of concept for the new pipeline, but it does have various improvements too!
This update brings new emoji, emoji improvements, bug fixes and updates on the experimental fonts introduced last version. New emoji Hoof hands, neurodiversity symbol, road vehicles, places and many more! Show your allegiance to Big Soy with the new tofu emoji! Updated emoji As part of ongoing efforts to upgrade the aesthetics of old emoji, […]
I’m currently diverting development attention away from forc (our WIP font creation tool) and onto what has become one of the roadblocks to making outputting standard Mutant Standard releases easy, which is our lovely workhorse exporting program called orxporter. Like a lot of things in Mutant Standard, reaching for new technical heights or features (crushed […]

In the past, I’ve talked about various mental health issues that I have that have made Mutant Standard generally difficult, but I haven’t really talked about issues I’ve had about the project itself. Even though I did want to work on Mutant Standard less in a planning work/life balance sense, I’ve been working on it […]

All of Mutant Standard’s pride flags (with a few exceptions for the rainbow flag since it’s kinda complicated) have been reinterpreted into a few different other Mutant Standard symbols, as well as a new one – meeple, a staple tabletop gaming piece! Some of these […]
In the previous post, I talk about the aesthetic approaches that have developed in this version, and the ways I have intentionally tried to create a new cohesive vision of how to design Mutant Standard emoji. In this post, I’m going to go through the new emoji designs like I normally do with these posts! […]
In this post, I’m going to go over the variety of realisations I’ve made in my design process that have led to the various significant improvements that were made in 0.4.0.
