The odds of your flatmate ruining your life through their final year project are pretty slim, right?
Well that's what I thought. Turns out I was wrong. Tom seems to have managed it.
I'm not the only one he hooked, too, there's some 50 of us now. All obsessively compulsively reloading the same web page over and over again, spending fictional metal and defending fictional people as if the universe depended on it.
Battlegrounds (that's what this game is called) is a technical marvel, as hyatt would say. Which means it's addictive. Of course so was Planetarion... but this promises to be a lot more fun.
As an added bonus, Battlegrounds is using Bugzilla as its bug database (the most successful Mozilla project to date), which means that players can easily keep track of what is being fixed.
Hmm. Must go check on my ships. I gave them orders to destroy some outposts, I hope they didn't get hurt!
