|The front page just changed today with a Beta sign up added.
They have been in closed alpha during the summer and just started closed beta in september.
I just started posting there using the same name, Tzan.
The forums are a bit quiet now because most of the active posters are now on a private closed beta forum.
This is the company started by Raph Koster. It is a game creation and playing site. They provide tools for a person to make a game and servers to run it.
This post should answer most questions.
So if you have a game idea, would like to learn Lua programming or want to join another persons project and contribute art, you may like it over there. Be warned I would expect most projects to be run by total noobs. So ask for a resume and design doc, if you want to more carefull.
Right now they only support 2D art. But of course you can make 3D models and render them into 2D.
I'll be making a game over there when I get in, based on that stuff I posted in the WIP thread. I could do it in Java, but free perisistance and microcharging sound nice. I have no idea what the limitations are yet, so I'll be starting by making a TicTacToe game
I just got into Beta
