Well, we didn't make it all the way to the goal, but that's okay! GGS is still going to get made, it'll just take longer. I'm excited to have found you all, more than two dozen individuals who are serious about seeing this happen. With that in mind, I'll be continuing to update the project site at www.globalgamespace.org with project progress and updates, and I'll be setting up a forum to discuss things in greater detail as they progress. I'll send a message out through Kickstarter once that's in place.
Thank you all so much for your support!
I've got another GUI plan! Sometimes we're going to need to construct more complex structures from simple components - linking markers to cards, tying two markers together, etc. GGS can solve this problem generically, so that we can link and collection of components together, but still keep things manageable.
Thank you all for your support!
I've got the latest UI mockup done, and here it is! Timers in GGS will be a little complicated behind the scenes but as a player, you shouldn't notice. Details of the clock-synchronization algorithm will hit the project blog once I've got them cleaned up and explained clearly.
Okay, people have taken me to task with regards to the cost of access to the test server, and I think they're right! So here we go: Everyone at the $100 level gets access to the test server during development. Those of you who already contributed at the distraction-remover level will get it too, but I can't edit the reward description for a level that's already been selected. Don't worry, I've got you covered.
The price for advance source code access has come down a notch too. So there's that.
