    Well, this has the earmarkings of the bi-monthly Indie Portal movement so I imagine there will be lots of talk of writing it but nobody actually will. :)

    And not a single person does remember my first April's joke last year...
    http://www.bobcatgames.com/aaamazing/

    Actually I was prototyping a concept around 2001 that would allow to script any kind of game - be it Tetris, Bejeweled or Puyo Puyo but then I got into gam(b)ling, Xbox and never had time to do anything besides standalone engine experiments.

    Someone has too much bloody time on their hands! :D

    A while back I even checked the domain registration and it brought some strange information. The domain privacy was protected, issued in Montreal somewhere and I forget the rest of it now.... :eek:

    You guys REALLY need to get a hobby!:p ;)

    Wow, nice prank guys. I didn't think it was a joke just because of the amount of work you put into that joke.

    haha...AAAmazing! Hey, I remember it... had to click the link and look at it, but I definitely remember it. Reminded me very much of Experience Quest or whatever that "RPG" was that just played itself.

    Isn't this called PyGame? :)

    Holy crap! This was actually a joke!? Oh my, you guys rule. I glanced over this thread when it was started way back when, and didn't think about it much. It took a lovely hint from Phil Steinmeyer's blog to get me to actually take a 2nd look.

    Bravo. I demand bizarre press released on Saturday. Terin, I'm looking at you. ;)

    Well done guys!:p
    A lesson well learned I imagine, as we all should know the old saying..............

    'If it seems too good to be true....it probably IS!':D

    Kudos though guys, sheer bloody kudos.;)

    All the best


    Mark.

    I would certainly argue that this saying does NOT apply in this case. :rolleyes:

    Hey guys, I'm just wondering when you are going to update the Kasual Kit with a "mystery hunt & click" template? My Zuma, Bejeweled, and Diner Dash clones are doing very well in the Chinese mobile market, but I want to compete in this new and exciting genre.

    Ok, just so everyone can have a laugh, I just spent the past 10 minutes reading through the thread, wondering how I missed it as it was just a few days ago, and wondering why the links are already down. I couldn't enjoy the joke!

    Then I realized that this thread was from a year ago, and was recently brought back to life with the last post.

    So, April Fools on me. Just a year later. B-(

    It's too bad the site is down... I think this whole thread is a classic and needed to be bumped for it's anniversary. :)

    Yes! I knew it was a joke and was the first to say so - do I win a prize?

    Actually I've got a zip of the site which I plan to archive somewhere shortly. Just been busy to get to it.
