So guys, I am going to put my reputation on the line and everything.
As soon as I am finished with a multiplayer tetris game and can put it in maintenance mode(fix bugs and all), I will be working on my next video game project. It will use bitcoin, require bitcoin, and be funded with bitcoin. It will be placed under the public domain.The Game
Here's a brief description from another thread:
My game is in essence Globulation 2 crossed with core wars.
Basically, you have a colony of square cells in a square world that reacts to certain rules. Your job is to basically make the colony gathers energy, stockpile, reproduce, and destroy the opposing enemy colony all with indirect operations.
You can control one cells at a time but it will be hard for you to organize an military strike, gather energy en masses. But you can organize them through swarm logics, chemical emitter cells, and other tools of the trade.
For example, you could combine a danger sensor cell with a "avoid emitter cell" to create a cell that tells the rest of the colony to avoid an area in case of an enemy attack.
I will have a site up and some codebase up as soon as possible when I reached 1200 BTC in pledged funds. If you're not confident about my coding ability, you will see my multiplayer tetris clone game pretty soon.Pledge Rewards
What's in it for you to pledge? Well, there's several levels of reward for pledging and more information will come up as soon as I figured out the pledge level. But here's the initial levels:
Level 0: Any BTC amount: You will get energy credit and an account as soon as the game enter beta.
Level 1: 5 BTC and higher: You will get your name on the credit page.
Level 2: 10 BTC and higher: Access to the game forum. 1 memory slot.
Level 3: 25 BTC and higher: alpha tester. 5 memory slots.
Level 4: 50 BTC and higher: You get a map named after you! 10 memory slots.
Level 5: 75 BTC and higher: coding session via skype for an hour. Views my coding at work and chitchat about the game for an hour. 15 memory slot.
Level 6: 100 BTC and higher: 30 memory slots.
Level 7: 250 BTC and higher: 50 memory slots.
Remember, the more BTC you pledge, the more stuff you get. However, only memory slots don't accumulates.
Note: Memory slots are simply genetic information that you can carry to each and every game. It give you great advantages if you can utilize it to save effective design. Otherwise you will only have human memory to save the design, which in the heat of battle, can be hard to remember.
Note2: I won't be responsible for holding your money in escrow. If you are a trusted member of the community, this is your opportunity to earn some reputation by being an escrow agent for this project.How Will I Use The Money
What would I used the money for? It will be saved for "rainy day" fund and I'll use the money to sustain myself to work on this game. This way, I will be able to work on the game full time.The Deal
When I complete this project, the game will be public domain and its source code glory will be revealed for all to see. Plus, pledgers get goodies.The Price
I am funding this game "kickstarter style". I am looking for 1200 BTC in pledges.
Stay tuned for more information in the future.The Pledgers
