    Who wants to help beta what will probably be an utter* disaster of a shit game that Chemosh and I are building?
    Beta sign-ups will be posted in the next week, we'll need ur social security number and crypto wallet addresses + keys
    you also need an alexa device like a echo or dot or show or whatever the hell else Alexa is in these days.


    * this is a pun - its an Alexa game.

    Just install the Alexa app on phone and you can keep her in your pocket like a creeper

    It's being turned into a game where you talk to yourself.

    Honestly, you could probably capitalize on a turn based game with Alexa as the dungeon master. I don't know how you'd sync up data for multiple players, though.

    The new art fgt that I started to work with bailed like all other art fgts.

    This alexa game we're building is currently designed with local multiplayer in mind. Things would have to change as p1 is single player only
    Online multiplayer with alexa skills is currently not a reality.

    I still have a plan for the other game, but doing a no-art game in the mean time seemed like a fun idea. New date for other game beta launch: June 2018. :) I'll start posting updates for it in April.

    You know... a simple Alexa game could be music, movie, etc trivia.

    Edit. Just looked it up. They have that. I didn't even realize Alexa had games. What idea do you have for your local multiplayer?

    In my mind, local multiplayer will play out much like the HeroQuest board game from good ol' Milton Bradley.

    3 player local example:
    Player 1 turn -> makes command -> gets result (i.e. hit goblin for 3)
    Player 2 turn -> makes command -> gets result
    Player 3 turn -> makes command -> no more players -> gets result PLUS all enemies do their turn and you hear their result (i.e. goblin attacks Player 1 for 2, giant rat attacks Player 3 for 1), and then it asks Player 1 what they'd like to do.

    HeroQuest was very turn based like this and once all players were done, Zargon (DM) would move all the monsters.

    And that's it really. The complications come with storing shared gold and items between players, each need equipment, but they have a shared backpack and gold pouch. So you gotta be specific when equipping / unequipping heroes, but also try to allow those commands to work without naming specific hero for single player so they don't have to say their hero name every time.

    HeroQuest was fucking amazing as a game. I've been looking in local shops to find a copy with no luck.

    my three favorite games as a child were HEROQUEST, BATTLEMASTERS, and FIREBALL ISLAND and i still have all 3 (thanks MOM:smitten::smitten::smitten:).

    return of the witch lord is the best heroquest expansion
