GreenSpace

This one is off-topic, I apologize for that.

A good friend and his indy studio just finished this game:



You start with a very dirty planet, there is funny-looking garbage everywhere. You have to clean the planet, develop it and make it green again.

It may not be your cup of tea, but odds are you know someone who will enjoy it a lot. Please pass it along.

You can play the game from here:

  1. Yet another exploitative waiting based 'pay us to skip this tedium' Farmville clone huh? Your own project is so interesting, I thought you'd have more interesting friends. :\

  2. Haven't played the game, and it looks like it probably isn't my cup of tea, as you say, but I'd just like to say one thing. Whether it is in this game or not, the "pay us to skip this tedium" type of game IS exploitative, dull, and one of the most evil things I have ever seen in gaming.

    I sincerely hope this is not one of those games.

  3. @Eagle: Well I don't play them, even less pay for them, but I don't think "pay to avoid tedium" is any more exploitative than "pay to play more". After all you get to experience a lot of the game content for free, if you pay more you get more content. Morally it is the same as releasing a demo of a game that let's you play only the first level. In both cases you are limited by some artificial barrier that is there only so you give out some cash.

    Also I don't think these games force anyone to give their money away. It is not like they were stupid and were robed by the game.

    In the particular case of GreenSpace, I don't really know. I think it is pretty much like FarmVille, but not sure about how much is about energy constraint versus selling virtual goods.

    Maybe I can get my friend or someone from Rocketowl to comment on this. It is a very interesting topic.

  5. Can you put... perhaps... a 30 minute video on YouTube of you walking about in the latest version of the generator? I would really like to see your progress IN ACTION, not just stare at a few well-taken photos.

  6. @Anonymous: Nothing big has changed since the last video I posted. I only added grass and layered, colored fog. It will be while before I post a new video.
