In our economy, software is never purchased - a license to use the software is purchased. The actual owner is free to deny you that license at any time, and you have no legal right to continue to use the software we like to think we own. r n r ...

I like your article and ...

I like your article and your journey. I have followed a similar path - and as you said, it pretty much reduces to a State-Transition diagram which also reduces to a Turing Machine...which is certainly capable of modeling any problem that can be computed . r n r nI think ...

I wonder if they have any plans to give something to users that have value in the system. I have several games with permanent access from the early days of the system including saved games, of course . I guess that all just evaporates. I did expect that eventually, but ...

I love reading articles about this kind of design Thank you I also follow Chris Crawford pretty closely, and I am always wishing that there was more interplay between industry and him. He has certainly spent a long time working on these problems, and his findings successes and failures can ...

At first blush, this sounds like Shadowbane. The first rethinking of the MMORPG genre immediately after the release of WoW. I will investigate further, of course. Perhaps the time is right, or they can learn from the mistakes of those developers.

As I watched the descent happen on XNA, and iPhone - I couldn 't help but notice that the Race to the Bottom was concurrent with the astronomical increase in supply. r n r nWhen the fabled bedroom/garage programmer was granted access to virtually free wide scale distribution, the number ...

This brings to mind Civilization ...

This brings to mind Civilization and Alpha Centauri - two nearly identical games designed by Sid Meiers. Civilization features a fiction based strongly upon human history, events, weapons, devices, and nationalities.
