As part of our ongoing efforts to improve forum performance, we will be migrating to new servers within the week (perhaps on the weekend). Once we finalize the actual date and time, a notice will be posted here at least 4 hours prior to "go time". We expect a fairly long maintenance period of approximately 1-2 hours during the move.
The move to new servers is happening tonight at somewhere around 1amMIDNIGHT EST. There will be a significant period of downtime (30 minutes to 2 hours). Wish us luck!
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[GAME ON] Weewar: kinda like a hex browser based Advanced Wars you can play at work.
For new and old players (lots of updates recently!):
Weewar is a turn based strategy game that plays out on a hex field and can be played on your browser. How that's not enough to get you signed up, I don't know, but I'll keep going.
No more waiting for signups! The game is completely open now and new registrations should be processed immediately.
It has a map editor that you can use to create your own custom maps. There's also a map browser to look through other people's maps and as well as the ability to favorite them.
The game is free! You can also get a Pro upgrade which gives you access to sharing your custom maps (very badass), extra units for everyone playing a game you create (very cool), and the ability to play 10 games at a time instead of 4 (very nice).
