Coincidentally I just now searched the internet for an "html5 dungeon crawl" and I stumbled upon this fun (but uncompleted) HTML5 Dungeon Crawler called "Cardinal Quest".  It turns out that the developer "received $4,800 ($4,421 after 8bf's 5% fee + paypal transaction fees) which should go a long way in helping finishing the game" by using some website called http://8bitfunding.com/ to crowdsource investment funding for his game.  Unfortunately, they use paypal, and charge 5% fee ontop of paypal's 2.9% + $.30, but it's a great idea.  I'd like such a website that accepts bitcoin...

I suppose you should feel free to post your game there once you have a working demo, if you care for paypal USD.

Smiley  Here here!  That's the spirit!  Cool

But yeah...it would be nice to have some automated way to fund such things as setting bounties for software development, putting pledges in escrow, and collecting the money once a final product is actually released...

Look like crowdfunding this project won't be so easy.

Well, you could sell the game and offer dividends to investors.

The reward I am offering:

1. A public domain game.

2. Exclusive access.

3. In-game virtual goods.

You don't just pledges and get nothing. You'll get something.

Also: I added a new level.

For those who are interested in....proof that I can code, here's the image below:



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

For those who wants to view my code repository: https://github.com/kiba/jstet

It's not the most nice looking code in the world, but I been working on this project on and off for several months. With the Automata RTS, I'll work on it harder and faster than I work on JStet.

But, there's still some outstanding bugs that I have to fix with jstet before I can move on.

Kiba, what am I doing wrong?  I created a multiplayer game with one browser tab, then tried to join it in another browser tab, but nothing happened:

Did you start the server? You will need couchdb too.

The JStet game is online! Somebody will probably crash it though.

Single and Multiplayer will works with varying level. However, custom game support is broken in the sense that it doesn't require a password to join.

It will works only on Google Chrome and Safari 5.

Firefox 4 disabled websockets by default.

I guess I don't have couchdb...

Awesome!  Works on my Google Chrome!  A bit jagged movement, but I guess some indication that kiba can code (I assume you coded this).

Yes, I coded everything except the coloring for tetris shape. (originally it was all white, but my customer didn't like it so he wrote it himself)

Bumpy bump.

I talked to a lot of people. There's lot of reason why they don't want to fund my project. It ranges from disinterest, being broke, not enough time to analyze, and don't wanna fund the competition.

Still, I am going to be a stubborn about it! There gottach be enough people in this community to fund my project. I just need to get the words out.

I realized that I need alpha tester to provide me quality data about the game. I also saw an opportunity to reorder the reward level to make it fit and how much.

I'm throwing in 10BTC.
I'll also give you 100BTC when it's done.
Done means you can put it in a box at supertarget next to world of goo.
