If you follow my blog for more than a week at a length you might notice that I have a thing about gaming. And coming up with too many unworkable game ideas that only get half implemented.
Over there is a rather cool image of a game called Dwarf Fortress, more complex and simulationist that a lot of professional games with 15 times the graphics.
To most people it probably just looks like a bunch of uncollected characters, but like writing, its a matter of something simple creating something rather fun and complex, despite its simple medium.
I occasionally get in strange programming moods, I figure that right now is one of those moments, as I plan to spend tomorrow messing around with code. What I wouldn’t mind now is a fun old game with a bunch of like minded people. Play by email has always been a rather fun diversion of mine. Course I’d have to see if I could actually program something PBEM before I could go down that path.
Come Monday I’ll be back to writing. Just not entirely sure what at the moment.
