So this game is shaping up not in the way I intended (neptune’s pride + nethack + wordfeud) but I am really enjoying the new concept. More on that later.
For now, here is google app engine in action:
| ‘carlosthedwarf’ has created a new game
(playing as the evil horde*)
|Other players can see available games and join them|
|‘joeyblogs’ is going up against our friend carlos.
Don’t ask me what a Mangler is.
So… there you go. Progress! Just in case someone has this blog set up in a dusty corner of their RSS reader. If I had a nickle for every game development blog that stops updating less than half-way through the project I would be a THOUSANDAIRE!
Moral of the story: if you are lurking, say hi!
