I have a long history of working on holidays. Back in the BadgerCom days I once spent Christmas Eve working on our online Illuminati game. Unsurprisingly, I was the only one in the computer lab. Since moving away from Colorado it’s been hard to get excited about holidays like Easter.
I didn’t quite get everything on yesterday’s list done. I have the mystery generator working, but it doesn’t write to the database yet. I probably have an hour or so left on that piece of things.
Now that I have the guts and infrastructure (mostly) done, today should be pretty productive. By the end of the day I hope to have:
- Mysteries actually saving to the database
- Admin tools to view the state of mysteries
- Enough front end to allow players to:
- Join a mystery
- Reveal clues
- Reveal sources
- View the overall state of the mystery
I hope to have the game more or less complete by tomorrow night so I can get started on Facebookification on Tuesday.
