Update of Current Games
We are adding to the current games list! Now that Dice Inc is in full play test mode and Charge! is in a holding pattern for the next 4 weeks, we are moving on to our next live projects.
Soccer GM is in full development mode. We spend most of last Saturday working on the basics of a prototype and working out the bugs with schedule and how to get teams to play each other two times, home and away, which was not as easy as we thought it would be. The trouble is making a schedule system that is easy enough to explain and still get the desired home and away match ups. We played through an entire season and it was a lot of fun. We wantt o play it with more people so that there can be a more realistic market for players to be moved from team to team but so far so good. I have included some photos to give you some flavor of what we are up to. I won’t try and explain what this all means now, I will leave that for a dedicated Soccer GM post.
This is the other game we have decided to add to the development schedule. since there is no working prototype right now, I need to make as much of it as I can before this weekend. Wish I had more to report on this one but that will have to do for now.
While it is live on TGC, it is in a holding pattern for now. Our artist is running his own Kickstarter soon so we are just waiting for the post KS slow down to work on the final art for Charge!
We have a play test coming up with some new victi…..testers. I am looking forward to this test because we have been trying to set up this test for months now so I know the testers are looking forward to giving Dice Inc a try. We have also been working on a theme for DI. I think our front running might be a hacker crew theme with program battles and secret transactions. Not 100% on that as the theme, we also have ideas for stock trading programs, cattle rustlers and gangster hitmen. part of our weekend work will be to narrow down and possibly choose which theme we will go with.
No real side projects now that Arrrsteroid Miners is a live project for us. I do need to get into the blog habit again and I need to work on rule books…..I hate rule books.
I think Aidan is in a similar situation. Especially due to time constraints, we will not have much in the way of side projects this week.
