I've spent a lot of time on mods from CC2 to LSA over the years, but have recently spent some time with the Game Maker engine to put together a war board game emulator that I hope to get published for a tablet environment (though I could be completely delusional, since this is my first programming effort). Anyway, I was hoping that some wargamers frequenting CCS.net might be interested in taking this puppy for a test run. There is no AI, so you won't get much of a game solo, but I'm really looking for feedback on design, graphics, rules, etc. My intention from the start was to create a simple game without complex rules.

It's here: http://www.yoyogames.com/games/176143-battle-tactics

If interested, you can post here or send comments to cc2redux [at] hotmail [dot] com

At this point, PC.

Game Maker developers publish user content to the Ipad/pod OS. They are also planning to release a studio that allows creators to publish to just about any platform, including HTML 5.

I'm also interested in anyone's opinion on whether this sort of approach is a viable project. Would anyone play this?

Xbox Live has a growing number of smaller games available they call them "Xbox Live Arcade" members can buy them with microsoft points usually around 10-20 USD and then just dl them to their system. That's what Atomic did with BREACH. It may be a place to market this type of game for a huge audience.

It's a bit early to say it could happen, but I'd like to see that too.

It would be great to hear from anyone who has a windows-based tablet on how this plays.

How is your new game coming along Zon?


________________________________________

It is quite an accomplishment for one of our own members make an original game and release it for the first time. Not only that, Colonel Zon has been a pillar of the CC modding community since 1997? I expect ever CCS member who reads this to go download Zon's game, register at that Yoyo site and give him a review. If everyone who ever thanked him in a readme gave his game a review he would have 200 by now.
