Re: Storytelling via gameplay

I think a good way to think about game story is a more conversational form. The game presents options to the player and the player responds to the options, and the game responds with new options. The options chosen would not necessarily be rewarded or punished right away, although some might. You co...

Re: Community Game: Turn Based Tower Defence game with RPG.

Or you could have the tower guarding your heart, and have demons attacking. You could for example have a lust demon trying to flank you and sneak in from the side, or a judgementalism demon trying to masquerade as a power-up. Each level could represent a conversation with one or more people, you cou...

Re: The Aesthetics of Game Art and Game Design

A very interesting article indeed. It might provide some ideas for some speedgame or coding competitions. A thought struck me, these shapes seem to coincide somewhat with the rpg alignments. I think the square would be more lawful, but not necessarily good. The circle would be more good, but possibl...

Re: The Units for Programmers

I find it confusing to have problem as a time unit, I would describe a problem as an item needing solution, a negative solution if you will. That way Problems and Solutions outweigh each other linearly. Of course this doesn't account for the complexity of a problem. The trick is finding a way of rep...

Re: What do you expect from flying game mechanics?

As a gamer, what is it that you expect to feel and experience when flying something in a game? It depends on where and what I'm flying.

Re: Multiple-state flag

hmm, not is a unary operator, so it would be "and not" to unset a bit, otherwise it's right you could also use the hexadecimals directly, which saves you a mathematical operation if you care about optimization. so that would be &H1 for the LSB, and &H1, &H2, &H4 &H8, &a...

Re: Multiple-state flag

What's this about basic not supporting bitwise logical operations? I have yet to run across a dialect of it that didn't. Even QBasic, Comal Basic and Basica have those. You have to use the "and", "or", "xor" and "not" keywords, but it is supported, it's in fac...

I've been using AutoCAD since I was about 5, but hasn't done much with it in a while since it doesn't run natively on Linux.

Re: Mustard Seed Faith

Interesting topic this. If we look at faith, it is defined as the evidence of what is not yet seen. Might it be here that Jesus makes a point of the mustard seed containing within it the blueprint for the mustard tree, and therefore it has faith to produce it? A mustard seed is amongst the smallest ...
