There's a game that I posed in the Completed Games tab a while back on my previous account which didn't really get any feedback. I was wondering if it's possible to post it again with this account? Or is there another approach I should take to resurface the game with this account?

that are two different questions.

1) why a new account at all? you should ask a mod to help you restore the old account

2) if nothing changed in the game itself, then it's doubtful that a new posting will get more interest.
you should link to the old page and ask there why there was no feedback, and then work on improvng it before posting again.

1) I've made a change to the name of my development company therefore I made a new account. I wasn't sure if there's a way to change the name of my account, if there is I did indeed waste my time but I do have access to the previous account

2) I actually wanted to post and ask that but wasn't sure if that was allowed. I thought it would be considered "necro posting" or something like that?

no, different subforums have different rules.
the necro rule applies to support forums, but the project and presentation forums have no timeout.

as for the name - you can't change it yourself, but there is a topic to request a namechange to an account from an admin.

Theoretically possible through settings, but doesn't seem to work.

Yeah we'd prefer to merge the accounts if possible. But it takes staff to do this too and do the name change.

You can merge accounts? I'd like to do that if possible.

Ok I left a message for someone who handles this to get back to you. Though its not a true merge, they get rid of one and you keep the other under the name you want to use.

how does everybody even finish anything

i have like 5 projects in the backburner and it's just so sad that i probably won't get to finish all or maybe even any of them
Did you know that 90% of people in the world use the number in their sentence as they see fit?
It's been a long time since I was here but I have a lot of updates... btw I am teaching again about game programming and game design in some schools here in Brazil hahahaha It's good to see kids and teens learning this kind of thing!
welp, I literally can't continue working on ALEX now that my MZ trial is up (unless I somehow place in the jam which I don't remotely deserve to for my unfinished crap) so I am back on my bullshit
