I thought I better mention this here, rather than announcements, just before someone posts something that gets the wrong idea. There is a new web game by EA/maxis called SimSocial. If you go and play it, you will notice big similarities to Kudos 2. http://apps.new.facebook.com/simsocial/ This isn't a case of EA cloning Kudos, or of me cloning them (presumably with a time machine ). The game design was licensed from Positech by EA for them to build SimSocial on. Basically we agreed a deal, I'm happy with the deal, and no I'm not (able to be) saying what the terms are. I wish the game every success, and I think it was a natural partnership. Now back to making spaceships go zap... have I sold out?
