Making it Interesting
So we've got solid rules for interactions, that reward success, and scale punishment based on accuracy, rather than a pure pass / fail architecture. How do we wrap this into a game? We've already established that the player's skill plays the part of the fir...

Making Things Better
There's a ton of maths behind games, both exposed and unexposed. Role playing games (RPGs) typically have this strongly exposed, huge datasets working against each other to provide a simulation of combat, or picking a lock. These equations tend to be compli...

Poker Kingdoms is a variation of classic match-3 games.
Selecting 5 tiles, the player scores based on the tiles selected, receiving multipliers for the poker hands, and risking hands by selecting flipped tiles.
This is a preview of the full game - a quest, and multiplayer are slated for future versions.

So, this is what I'm working on - it's something of a cross between Diablo and Virus. The landscape is procedural voxel-based, and is not only destructable, but various weapons will use it as well.

Your ship will be built from parts scavenged from fighting the various enemies, and will show what gear you're carrying - currently the game uses a single mesh for any moving object however.

So - one of the cool things in G+ is the hangout, and we should most certainly have some here - what are people's thoughts?

should it be a weekly event?

should we run 2 or 4, throughout the day so people aren't constrained by timezones (I'm from Adelaide, Australia) ?

What format should they take?

Could we leverage some guest speakers?

You can see the effort put into the food - however with a crowded eating area, it seemed the chef's timing was out - food was over-cooked to the point of being scorched - yet you could tell, if given the right time would have been excellent. The prices were a bit high - especially for simple things like schnitzels.
