We’ve been working on some experimental games…we wanted to know if you think it’s worth posting them here. The main goal would be to get feedback and opinions and insights to make things work.
My question is…are there enough people interested to make this worthwhile for everyone involved? Most of the experimental games I’m working on are mobile…so you’d need an Android device to test them out.
At the Game Developers Conference, there was a whole summit on Smart Phones and I got a chance to talk to a fair amount of mobile game developers. I think it’s interesting to see that mobile may play an important part for game developers.
Last year, the podcast show tried to do a community game project. It didn’t get as much feedback from the community as hoped…so this year, we’ll try something different. We’ll focus on a mobile game and see how that goes.
The community game this year is called “Whatever Quest” ….and can be found on the Android market. It uses the sensor systems of smart phones to drive the game. “Whatever Quest” turns everyday life into a quest.
In the next few weeks, I’ll go into more details about the game design and look for feedback on ways to enhance it
“Whatever Quest” is meant to be a public service project…with the aim to get people to use it for their everyday activities.
You can download the game in the Android Market. Right now, it has a one-star review. It’s not perfect, but gotta start somewhere
