    I have gotten a few people asking what it means ... well ... it's a computer thing! ;)

    A new online card game I am working on, my last video game was popular on the net but got all fucked up because of the host changing policies so I lost the server and, having lost interest in developing it (the code was a mess, first full game, what do you expect), I decided to just scrap it completely. Got the host issue solved and the idea I had been working on for a looooooong time (decades actually) finally solidified. If you like the idea of trading card games but don't like Magic the Gathering style games, this one will be for you. It's actually based on politics. The image in my signature is the title image. The greatest feat in this one is not going to be the code, the program will be solid and the server will be fully tested this time, but the simple fact that I actually included multimedia ... and I made it myself. No copying any other images or audio files, this one is all new. I will post the link when it's done, not in my signature but here, this thread.

    PS: This is why I haven't been posting much lately either. :cool:

    May as well post the link now: Politician

    It's not up yet, the game server that is, still coding. Just finished coding the card market, working on match code next. The game isn't as simple as poker, but not as extravagant as Magic the Gathering. For those who have tried TCGs before think Illuminati meets Spellfire. I don't want to give too much away yet. ;)

    When I do start the server it will have 46 cards at first, adding more quickly after I see some players. I promise though it will be fun, and a great way to pass the time for those who get bored arguing on here. :lol: Like real life politics there are rarely any real winners, you just get ahead if you play your cards right.

    Looks like quite an undertaking. Is this something that could be made into an app for iPhone/Touch?

    Good luck. :thup:

    You should be getting paid for game design.

    It could be made for one, but I am not going to write it in Python, would open it up to huge security risks. Though I think iPhone can run Java applets, if so then I'll see if I can get such code written.

    Not yet, this will only be my second attempt at an actual game. I still need practice with multimedia, but compared to my last attempt, this one is actually amazing me. The more I finish on it, the better it looks. Perhaps some day I will, but for now it's just for fun. ;)

    Oh, special note I forgot to mention, since I am testing it right now the game server is actually not running persistently, but sometimes I'm have it running to test it so if you actually want to help test it, let me know and I'll PM you when it's running. ;)

    Small update for those who care, the game is nearly ready for launch ... probably a week or two at the most. ;)
