It has kind of a unique business model. Something about the amount of processing time required and there's some kind of market...It's as if somebody had some idle CPU cycles on one of those Amazon (or similar) "cloud services" and decided to find a way to make money off them (I think that's that how compuserve started 30 years ago
It describes itself as an "MMO" with competing players scripting their units for defense and offense. I did do the first 3 or so steps of the tutorial provided on their web page and it seems almost like a super-slo-mo RTS, like StarCraft but it takes 18 hours to do something simple, like set up a defensive perimeter (I might be exaggerating a bit).
Here's one summary:
Scripting as gameplay
course I'm taking that I am in fact making progress. I don't know if I'll ever have the coding skills necessary to create uniquely special scripts against the professional coders (and copy/pasters) that are also playing, but I still find the idea of the game really appealing.
Would anybody be interested in exploring it? Commenting? Mockery?
